Trump first directed the Department of Defense to establish the Space Force in June of 2018, in a surprise announcement during a meeting of the...

With all the nonsense about AT&T’s fake 5G Evolution network out there, it’s possible to forget that AT&T is actually building a real, standards-based 5G network, too. Fortunately, the cellular company has taken it upon itself to remind everyone about that in a new fact sheet that curiously forgets to mention its 5G Evolution network at all — almost like it isn’t a real 5G network! The fact sheet itself is a decent (if slightly AT&T-biased) look at the carrier’s work in actual 5G development....

This piece is part of an ongoing series exploring what it means to be a woman on the internet.  On Twitter, a place where a lot of bad things happen, there's a mostly harmless but decidedly annoying phenomenon. A lot of people, mostly women, have noticed that one or two men always, no matter what, reply to their tweets.  These men are colloquially known as "reply guys." While no reply guy is the same — each reply guy is annoying in his own way — there are a few common qualities to watch out...

The US Food and Drug Administration is officially warning consumers that buying young blood infusions to improve their health is not a good idea. It is, in fact, a very bad idea because there is no clinical evidence that the infusions do anything, and the procedure could be dangerous. “Simply put, we’re concerned that some patients are being preyed upon by unscrupulous actors touting treatments of plasma from young donors as cures and remedies,” write FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb and Peter...

Malaria is one of the most dangerous infectious diseases in the world, and after decades of progress, the number of cases is rising again, according to...

The moment I started seriously worrying about credit card and debit card skimmers wasn't when my entire bank account was transferred to Turkey, or when I had to replace a credit card three times in two months because of fraudulent charges.

Every swipe spit out the credit card number, with no extra setup required. More advanced devices to steal...
