YouTube is celebrating its seventh birthday, and as such, has revealed a fairly mindblowing statistic: YouTube users now upload 72 hours of video content to the site every minute. A year ago, that figure was "just" 48 hours every sixty seconds. Other interesting tidbits of note include the fact that 800,000,000 YouTube viewers watch over 3 billion hours of video each month, which equates to roughly 15 minutes per viewer. The site is, if you haven't noticed, a freaking juggernaut. Check the video after the break that celebrates seven years of YouTube, and feel free to leave your favorite YouTube videos in the comments.
Yesterday Samsung unleashed the Galaxy S III smartphone at its Mobile Unpacked event in London. Sure, we brought you news of the Galaxy S III when it was announced, but sometimes, you just need to see things for yourself.

We've got the video for you below!
Volkswagen Auto Group has been seeing their sales numbers grow significantly over the past few years, but it's about to see that number multiply as soon as it finalizes the purchase of Italian superbike manufacturer, Ducati. In the meantime, how about pitting the two companies against each other? Some enterprising folks over in Germany took it upon themselves to make it happen. So what were their weapons of choice? From Volkswagen’s side they choose the Audi TT RS, which has quicker track times than the Audi R8 on most runs. From Ducati’s side they choose the 1199 Panigale. Check out the video above to see who wins!
The Dark Knight Rises is set to be unleashed upon us on July 20, less than three months from now, and Warner Bros. just hit us with a new trailer. The two-minute spot is better than the first two that were released, and makes us salivate a bit more for the finale of Christopher Nolan's Batman saga. Check it out.
For those that live in areas plagued by long winters, icy roads, and the ever-accumulating snow fall, you know how obnoxious driving can get. Chains are great, but putting them on is a hassle. There's also the option of studded tires, but as soon as you hit deep snow, well, you’re outta luck. So what other options are there? You could just wait out the snow, but that could take awhile. Or you could buy a pair of Track N Go treads.
The designers of the Track N Go system are AD Boivin. They’re better known for marketing power-sport products for snowmobiles and motocross bikes, and now they're bringing that expertise over to automobiles. Track N Go is basically a treadmill system for your 4x4 pickup truck. You simply drive onto them, lock them, and get on your merry way. To us it looks like it’s a universal application, as it’s used by a Ford and GMC in the video below.
Though we’re not sure when the Track N Go system will be available for purchase, it’s something worth watching for. Pricing is still up in the air as well.

Now if you think that high-end crime involving city ports, boats, crime circles, black markets, and Ferraris are things you only see on the big screen, think again.
The owner of a high-end rental car company based on Los Angeles noticed that his Ferrari 458 Italia was sitting still for a few days. Growing suspicious, we got the police involved and the last known location of the car, tracked via GPS.
The police finally caught up with the car in Hong Kong, and found that the Ferrari wasn’t alone in transit. A bunch of high priced vehicles were all heading over to the Asian black market where they can fetch a price twice the value of the car. This still comes out cheaper, since the buyer avoid taxes and fees. More details in the video above as CBS reports on the story.

When you enlist a French supercar manufacturer to create a teaser video for a car, you end up with a piece that's as long as a theatrical trailer. Bugattis have never been subtle, so why should their teaser be anything less than they are?
Many are familiar with the Bugatti Veyron, but Bugatti decided it too needed to venture back into the four-door car market. Heck, if Lamborghini and Porsche are doing it, why shouldn’t they? So with all this in mind, Bugatti has released a teaser for the Bugatti Galibier four-door concept. Checkout the Galibier above and what Bugatti’s about after the jump!
Normally Translogic is out educating use on alternative fuel powered vehicles. We’ve seen everything from poop-powered cars to a flying jet-man. Though the latter isn’t green, it’s definitely an alternative to four-wheeled commuting.
This episode of Translogic marks its 100th installment. How do you celebrate a 100th installment of a show? Take it to the Disney World Speedway, of course.
Beyond the normal, green-powered flare, Translogic decided to celebrate their 100th episode by driving Lamborghinis and Ferraris, to which we have no complaint. With that said, enjoy the clip!
Here at Gear Live, we know just how popular the Beats by Dr. Dre line of headphones can be. After all, when we post about them, those are typically the most read items of the day. However, while they look good and have great endorsements behind them, some people prefer other models of headphones due to the audio profile. What is one to do if the Beats profile isn't the sound they crave, but the Beats look is exactly what they're looking for? One option is to grabs some spray paint and get to work.
Casey Neistat just posted a video on YouTube that shows how he turned a pair of Bose QuietComfort 15 headphones into Beats by Dr. Dre knockoffs. Sure, he may have sprayed over the microphone that the headphones rely on for noise cancellation, but sometimes that's the price you've gotta pay to look good.
