"Oh mama mia, mama mia, mama mia, let me go."  Early reviews reveal critics aren't exactly asking for an encore after watching the highly anticipated Queen biopic, Bohemian Rhapsody. While the extended musical sequences dazzled critics, the consensus is that it lacks the bite of its source material — which kind of makes sense considering its rocky production history. The original star of the film, Sacha Baron Cohen, quit after reporting creative differences with the Bohemian Rhapsody team and...

One of the more convenient additions to the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL this year was support for wireless charging. Google embraced the new tech with a Pixel Stand accessory that can charge both new phones while providing easy access to Google Assistant and even acting as a photo frame. But it turns out that there’s a catch: if you want to get the fastest wireless charging speeds out of your Pixel 3, you’ll need to own the Pixel Stand (or another, Google-licensed 10W wireless charger) to take...

Flying 1,500 feet above the Antarctic coast, NASA scientists recently passed over a bizarrely straight-edged rectangular iceberg and snapped a picture of the floating slab.  While an intriguing image for the many of us who don't take aerial surveys of the changing, cracking, and melting Antarctic coast, these "tabular" icebergs are a common sight for scientists working in Antarctica. "It's not uncommon to see that in Antarctica — although that [the tabular iceberg spotted by NASA] is a fresh...

“Society as a whole is unable to think on anything like geologic time scales,” says Marcia Bjornerud. “Or even decadal time scales.” It’s clear that we need to think long-term about climate and the environment, but instead political leaders are constrained by the two-year Congressional cycle and those working in business are beholden to quarterly earnings. Bjornerud is a geologist at Lawrence University in Wisconsin and the author of Timefulness: How Thinking Like a Geologist Can Help Save...

Holiday gifting to a special lady usually goes one of two ways:  1.You've been planning gifts all year and cannot handle keeping them a secret. 2. You push off gift shopping until the last minute and end up begging her friends for ideas. If you're in the latter camp, we get it — picking out the perfect gift to encapsulate how much she means to you can be a lot of pressure. Obviously, you know that wowing her is a must — but what's actually romantic is proving that you actually put thought into...

We already know quite a bit about the OnePlus 6T. It’s launching on October 29th with an event in New York City that was moved up a day to avoid conflicting with Apple’s iPad Pro event. And the phone will come with an in-display fingerprint sensor and a tiny notch at the top of its bezel-less display. There’s even a leaked image of the front and back of the phone that circulated earlier this month. But we may have just gotten a better picture of the device’s specs, thanks to an accidental...

Peeking behind the curtain to see the process of game development is already a rare joy, but it’s even more unusual to see some of the flawed, erroneous moments that had to be polished out of a finished piece of work. Thankfully, Sony Santa Monica, the makers of PS4 hit God of War, have lifted that curtain for us in a newly posted video. “Making a video game is difficult,” reads the YouTube description for the video, which showcases some particularly choice prerelease gameplay bugs. “Making a...
