Stop looking everyone, the stupidest product of the year has arrived.It’s the Palm (2018), a device that should never have got past the point of conception, and certainly never have actually been made.However, heads were nodded, budgets allotted, boxes were ticked, and production lines were fired into life.Tie it into the whole digital wellbeing obsession, push it towards the hand-wringers so concerned about being present in the moment, and it would be a sure-fire hit.No, misguided ones, it’s worse.This phone has been deliberately engineered to be annoying to use.

On Christmas Day last year, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg used his website to tell the world that he was not an atheist any more.In this way, the billionaire used Facebook to express his feelings about religion, like many social media users before him.I found that conservative Christians who discuss contentious issues about religion on Facebook debates often do so in emotionally charged ways.It seems that simply being religious may sometimes trigger particular emotions and reactions to the topic of religion.But it is not only devoutly religious media users who get pulled into debating religion online or feel very strongly about it: hardcore atheists may also harbor strong emotions about religion, or rather, anti-religion.But by taking several of the existing studies and comparing them with my own ethnographic study of a Norwegian Facebook group whose members wish to promote the visibility of Christianity in the public sphere, it is possible to discern a number of similarities in how media users “perform conflict” in emotive ways.

Apple makes it easy to quickly take screenshots on a Mac, whether it's the whole screen or a specific selection.What's also easy, unfortunately, is completely filling your desktop with the countless screenshots you've taken.By default, your Mac will automatically save any screenshots you take onto your desktop, and there's not an immediately clear way to change this.Luckily, it's a pretty simple process to change where your Mac saves your screenshots.Whether you actually need to keep all of them, however, is a decision best left up to you.Here's how to change your screenshots end up:

HyperX has announced its first Bluetooth headset.Called the Cloud MIX, the headset’s use of the universal Bluetooth standard means that it will pair just as easily (or clumsily, as in the case of most Bluetooth connections) to your smartphone as it will to your PC.With an internal microphone in addition to the detachable mic arm, the Cloud Mix have a shot at avoiding the gamer-y look that stops most people using gaming headsets as standalone wireless headphones.The Cloud Mix isn’t HyperX’s first wireless headset, but its pre-existing Cloud Flight relied on a USB dongle to connect to your machine wirelessly.Gaming headset manufacturers have previously relied on these dongles to reduce latency and offer cross-compatibility between PC and consoles.We haven’t had a chance to try out the Mix yet to see how responsive it is, but the change means you’ll need to use it in wired mode if you want to use it with a console.

The dusty leftovers started to coalesce in some spots, forming larger rocky objects.Original story reprinted with permission from Quanta Magazine, an editorially independent publication of the Simons Foundation whose mission is to enhance public understanding of science by covering research developments and trends in mathematics and the physical and life sciences.Something similar happened around countless other suns, the vast majority of which are thought to have planets.Astronomers are trying to figure out how exactly the planetary formation process happens and how long it takes, partly by studying how much material exists in planets now, and how much there would need to have been in the disks of dust from which they were forged.The authors behind the new paper set out to compare the masses of hundreds of exoplanets and protoplanetary disks, where baby planets are being forged.The best telescope for studying the dust and gas in a protoplanetary disk is the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA), a flock of radio antennas in Chile’s high desert.

Amazon’s announcement this week that it will raise its minimum wage for workers in the United States and United Kingdom earned it a wave of positive publicity, but backlash is already growing as reports emerge that its new pay structure will do away with monthly bonuses and stock option awards.In blog posts about the wage increase (slightly different ones were posted on its U.S. and U.K. sites), Amazon said it would replace its restricted stock unit [RSU] program with a direct stock purchase plan before the end of next year, and that the net effect of its changes would be “significantly more total compensation for employees,” but did not mention monthly bonuses.According to Amazon employees who spoke to Yahoo News, however, monthly bonuses will end on November 1.Some workers who have been with the company for more than two years were already earning nearly $15 before the raise, but the publication reports that these workers “could lose thousands of dollars that they would have collected from the stock and monthly-bonus programs,” which include one called Variable Compensation Pay (VCP).Under VCP, workers who hit certain goals could earn up to 8% of their monthly income, with an average employee earning about $1,800 to $3,000 a year in bonuses, according to one of Yahoo News’ sources.The pay structure change will also hurt many employees in the UK, the GMB, a major trade union, told the Guardian.

A team of researchers at TECH2 conducted private benchmark tests of Oppo and Huawei smartphones using an unbranded app.The team’s results suggest that Oppo and Huawei cheat benchmark scores by huge margins.The team also conducted the same tests on devices from Samsung, OnePlus, Xiaomi, and more, which all matched advertised scores.A few weeks ago, we learned that Huawei installs software onto its smartphones that detect when a benchmark test is conducted.When a benchmark app runs, the smartphone pushes its processing power over the limit in order to make the score go higher than it ever would in real-life scenarios.When Huawei got called out on this practice, the company admitted that the allegations were true.

It’s finally happening: Microsoft’s Xbox One will soon support mice and keyboards as input devices for select games.We first heard rumors of this back in June, and the company’s now confirmed it.To start, it’ll open up access to this feature for members of the Xbox Insider program in the next few weeks.When this functionality becomes available, it’ll be up to game developers to decide if they’ll support mice and keyboards for their titles; that means you won’t be able to swap your controller for these peripherals on just any game.Microsoft said that the free-to-play multiplayer game Warframe will be one of the first titles to get mouse and keyboard support.As a longtime fan of the game, I’m excited about this.

Over the past few months, publishers say Flipboard has started to work with them more around solving business problems like building sign-ups for newsletters and helping organize content into bigger packages.Publishers like PureWow are also teaming up with other publishers to create custom content for the app.Over the past couple of years, Flipboard has switched gears from being an aggregation hub that automatically pulls in publishers' content feeds to a curated news experience.But while Apple News mostly helps publisher get their content in front of more readers, Flipboard seems to have a vested interest in helping publishers grow their own businesses — i.e.Indeed, as Flipboard ramps up its publisher relations, media executives say there are two big differences between the two news apps:For one, Flipboard continues to drive significant traffic to publishers' websites that they are able to run ads and make money from, which is harder to work around within Apple News' so-called walled garden.

Considering it’s been eight years since Red Dead Redemption came out, it’s no surprise that fans of the franchise are ravenous for the next installment of the game, which launches October 26.Last week, Rockstar Games offered some publications the opportunity to preview the game, giving gamers even more to salivate over.But Sony is offering a way to take action.Sony is offering a RDR2 + PlayStation 4 Pro bundle that actually makes sense for the game.Instead of changing up the physical design of the console, Sony is offering 1TB of storage on a jet black PS4 Pro alongside the RDR2 disc and a dual-shock controller.Ready for Red Dead Redemption 2?

Ett par små robotar som skickats ut från en japansk rymdsond har landat på asteroiden Ryugu.Robotarna ska nu undersöka asteroiden, bland annat genom att skutta upp och sväva över dess yta – och en mindre krater ska också sprängas upp i Ryugu."Jag är så stolt över att vi har etablerat en ny metod för utforskning av små himlakroppar", skriver Yuichi Tsuda, projektledare vid den japanska rymdmyndigheten Jaxa, enligt ett pressmeddelande.När rymdsonden Hayabusa2 – som är ungefär lika stor som ett normalt kylskåp – efter tre års färd lyckligt och väl nådde asteroiden i juni liknades bedriften med att skjuta en projektil från Japan och träffa ett sex centimeter stort mål i Brasilien.Men nu har två små runda, tunna robotar exakt enligt planen nått asteroidens yta, efter ungefär ett dygns färd från sonden.Robotarna ska avläsa asteroidens fysiska former – bland annat genom att utnyttja dess låga dragningskraft till att skutta upp och sväva över ytan på uppåt 15 meters höjd i omkring 15 minuter i taget, enligt Jaxa.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the arm of the federal Department of Transportation charged with reducing the number of people killed on US roads, yesterday released the results of the crash test for the Tesla Model 3: The car earned five stars in every category.This perfect score is a welcome ray of sunshine during a (tweet)stormy stretch for Tesla.Also yesterday, Bloomberg reported that the automaker’s supply chain manager had left the company.Without an engine to work around, Tesla’s engineers can essentially make the whole front of the car a crumple zone, and having the heavy battery just inches off the ground limits the risk of rollovers.A few years ago, the Model S proved so strong, the testing equipment broke before it did.The Model X SUV put up a perfect score in its latest exam as well.

Photo by Matthew Lloyd / Getty ImagesBirds don’t always flap their wings to fly; sometimes they soar by taking advantage of rising columns of warm air known as thermals.As described in a paper published this week in the journal Nature, researchers from universities in the US and Italy used machine learning to train an algorithm to control a glider to navigate thermals.It also suggests that AI might be able to help us figure out exactly how soaring birds do what they do so well.When training their algorithm, the scientists found that some factors — particularly vertical wind acceleration and side-to-side torque — were important when teaching the system glider to navigate smoothly.The same, they suggest, might be true for birds.
