Facebook has a new headache when it comes to housing advertisements. The federal government has filed charges (via Axios) that the social media site violated the Fair Housing Act by allowing ads to discriminate against some protected groups. The US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) filed its complaint last week over the company’s advertising practices, something that investigative reporting and nonprofit groups have alleged for the last two years. In 2016, a ProPublica...

On Sunday, the Apple CEO tweeted the breathtaking work of John Bozinov — a photographer who focuses on wildlife and portraits. Bozinov is a master of iPhone photography, and the images that Cook shared are breathtaking examples of his work capturing life in Antarctica.  But it's kind of hard to believe they were actually shot on an iPhone, especially when you compare them to...

As an Android user, I’ve been waiting a long time to play Fortnite on the go.

For the most part, it’s just what I expected, apart from one major change: on my Galaxy S7 Edge, Fortnite looks like a...
