Over the last decade or so, I’ve gone through four, maybe five Kindles.More recently, I upgraded to the new Paperwhite with waterproofing only because my Kindle from 2013 was finally starting to show signs of age.It helps the design flow a bit more organically and makes it comfortable to hold in any orientation.Yes, the Kindle still has a microUSB charging port, but we are willing to forgive that since you can go weeks without having to charge it.There is quite a big difference between the display on the regular Kindle and the Kindle Paperwhite.Close examination if the screen of the new Kindle will reveal a mild blur around text, indicating a low resolution panel.

The Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) platform has already proven its worth by breathing new life into all manner of new Toyota vehicles, from the 2019 RAV4 to the 2020 Corolla.In the future, it might even become the platform for the second generation of Toyota's small joint-venture sports car.A source told Australia's Motoring that the upcoming replacements for the Subaru BRZ and Toyota 86 might move to the TNGA platform.The choices are, according to the information, moving to TNGA or staying on the current platform, which also underpins the latest Subaru Impreza.There is reportedly a third option, but it's been nixed.Subaru also has a new platform on its hands, the Subaru Global Platform, but it's engineered with all-wheel-drive cars in mind, since that's Subaru's forte.

Avengers: Endgame isn’t just the end of a major epoch in the MCU, it’s a culmination of a decade’s worth of movies.To reflect that, Fandango’s Movieclips has mashed up Endgame footage with dramatic moments and trailer clips from almost all the movies that came before.The Ultimate Trailer Mashup is a well-edited exercise in looking both forward and backward.From the last sacrifices all the way back to the first, to the moments of drama and death that got us from Coulson’s loss in Avengers to the big dusting in Infinity War.It’s only a few days left until Avengers: Endgame hits cinemas.This trailer mashup is a nice victory lap, and a reminder of how far these movies have come.

Samsung is getting a lot of negative attention regarding issues with the Galaxy Fold's display, which some reviewers reported started breaking after just two days.The Galaxy Fold is the first of its kind in the smartphone world, which often means that issues are bound to pop up, and many people's expectation are too high for the first foldable smartphone, and Samsung, as well.As a first-generation device, only early adopters should consider the Galaxy Fold, and early adopters should understand the risks of buying the first generation of anything.Critics have a point, but let's also root for Samsung, companies that are making foldable smartphones, and foldable smartphones in general.Samsung is surely feeling the heat for the issues that some reviewers were having with their Galaxy Fold review units, but I'm not surprised at all that the Galaxy Fold is facing issues — it's a first-generation product from a company that's at the bleeding edge of smartphone design, and I'd argue expectations are a little too high.Read more: Samsung's Galaxy Fold is an ambitious but flawed first attempt at what could be the future of smartphones

On July 16, 1945, scientists first unleashed energy stored at the centre of the atomic nucleus, causing a massive explosion in the New Mexican desert.That bomb’s successors would kill several hundred thousand people, permanently alter the course of international relations, and instill a constant sense of fear across the world for the following generations.“There’s a friend of mine who would like to remain anonymous who has heard or seen eight of these shots out in the Pacific,” Greg Spriggs, weapons physicist at Lawrence Livermore National Labs, told Gizmodo.“He said it sounded like a really loud rifle that goes off.”Explosions all sound pretty similar, Spriggs explained.It’s just a shock wave—the blast deposits an enormous amount of energy into the air, causing a pulse that travels faster than the speed of sound.

An isolated teenaged girl genetically engineered to be an assassin must elude rogue CIA agents intent on terminating her in Hannah, Amazon's adaption of the 2011 film of the same name.And in almost all respects, the TV adaptation comes up short.Ronan had this otherworldly presence of untouched innocence, combined with a ruthless hunter's instinct, as we saw in the very first scene when she kills and dresses a deer with just a bow and arrow and a hunting knife.In the film, Hanna is raised in the wilderness by her father, Erik Heller (Eric Bana), an ex-CIA operative who trains her in all the skills she needs to survive—not just in their winter fairyland, but in the brutal world outside.We eventually find out that she was part of a government program to genetically engineer children as trained assassins.Her mission: to take out Marissa Wiegler (Cate Blanchett), the woman who ran the secret project that produced Hannah, who will most certainly have her killed if she finds out Hannah is alive.

It's difficult to dominate that space long enough to become the catch-all term for a broad suite of devices competing for time and money.Depending on the year, they could be referring to my Sega Master System, the SNES or even my Nintendo 64.Over a 10-year period it would go on to sell almost 120 million units.At a guess I might have been 9 or 10 years old, spending endless hours playing -- obsessed with video games in the worst way.He'd broken his leg and his mother bought him the handheld to soften the blow.Months later, after a sustained harassment campaign, my parents relented.

Google is marking Earth Day by highlighting a few of the more extreme living things we share the planet with.Google's Monday Doodle features an animated slideshow exploring six different endangered organisms from different Earth elevations, some of which have only recently been discovered by humans.The Doodle also includes fun facts about the organisms and offers the curious the chance to learn more about them in search.Earth Day, which is observed on Monday this year, was founded in 1970 in response to an oil spill that occurred a year earlier off California's coast, spewing more than 3 million gallons of oil and killing more than 10,000 seabirds, dolphins, seals and sea lions.The annual one-day celebration aims to raise awareness of environmental issues, with events around the globe promoting recycling, pollution reduction and care for the planet.The theme of this year's Earth Day is Protect Our Species and is intended to draw attention to the rapid global destruction and reduction of the world's plant and wildlife populations.

Christina Koch has spent the past month orbiting Earth aboard the International Station.Her prolonged stay—at an estimated 328 days—will establish a new record for the longest spaceflight completed by a woman.NASA’s new crew assignments were announced earlier today, at which time Koch (pronounced “Cook”) learned that she’ll be participating in ISS missions 59, 60, and 61.Koch arrived at the ISS on March 14 and, if all proceeds as planned, won’t return to Earth until February 2020.“It feels awesome,” said Koch in a video released by NASA.“I have known that this was a possibility for a long time, and it’s truly a dream come true to know that I can continue to work on the programme that I have valued so highly my whole life.

For the last month, a mystery person or group has been targeting a top Iranian hacker team, dumping its secret data, tools, and even identities onto a public Telegram channel—and the leak shows no signs of stopping.Since March 25, a Telegram channel called Read My Lips or Lab Dookhtegan—which translates from Farsi as "sewn lips"—has been systematically spilling the secrets of a hacker group known as APT34 or OilRig, which researchers have long believed to be working in service of the Iranian government."We are exposing here the cyber tools (APT34 / OILRIG) that the ruthless Iranian Ministry of Intelligence has been using against Iran's neighboring countries, including names of the cruel managers, and information about the activities and the goals of these cyber-attacks," read the original message posted to Telegram by the hackers in late March."It looks like either a disgruntled insider is leaking tools from APT34 operators, or it's a Shadow Brokers–esque sort of entity interested in disrupting operations for this particular group," says Brandon Levene, head of applied intelligence at the security firm Chronicle, which has been analyzing the leak.As of Thursday morning, the Read My Lips leakers continued to post names, photos, and even contact details of alleged OilRig members to Telegram, though WIRED couldn't confirm that any of the identified men were actually connected to the Iranian hacker group."From now on, we will expose every few days the personal information of one of the cursed staff and secret information from the vicious Ministry of Intelligence so to destroy this betraying ministry," a message posted by the leakers on Thursday read.

A company in Estonia called Iglucraft is making handcrafted, rather aesthetically beautiful “pods.” They’re technically cabins but they’re also promoting them as kind of a sauna.Guess who owns one of these Igluhuts?No less than football’s (soccer, for Americans) greatest player of our generation, David Beckham.That’s right — the most praised midfielder of our age, a global ambassador for the sport, and the spouse of one of the richest Spice Girls — recently installed one of Iglucraft’s saunas just off his mansion in the Cotswold area of Oxfordshire, England.The superstar even documented the occasion to his 50+ million Instagram followers as he enjoyed the warm amenity in England’s cold permanence: “Thank you to @iglucraft.I’m loving it with the cold weather right now.” The accompanying photo, showing the star resting on a bench outside of his newly acquired sauna, had to have been worth a fortune to the Estonian startup.

Smartphone screens are getting bigger, and bezels are getting smaller.The Xperia 10 Plus has a 21:9 aspect ratio, and although it measures 6.5-inches, the slender shape makes it considerably more comfortable to hold than a phone with a more traditional aspect ratio and this size screen.Moderately, but the benefits aren’t enough to make the Xperia 10 Plus a truly desirable phone, despite the reasonable price.To give you an idea of the Xperia 10 Plus’ size, the iPhone XS Max has a 6.5-inch screen, and measures 157mm long, 77mm wide, and 7.7mm thick.At first, it’s quite jarring, and the screen feels almost restrictive.The phone gets covered in messy smudges, and looks ugly.

The Cygnus spacecraft, built by Northrop Grumman, has rendezvoused with the International Space Station (ISS) as part of a months-long resupply mission.The craft was launched from NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia on 17th April at 4:46 p.m.It was captured just under an hour later at 5:28 a.m. by Anne McClain of NASA and David Saint-Jacques of the Canadian Space Agency using the station’s robotic arm, and was firmly bolted to the station’s Unity module by 7:31 a.m.The craft will remain docked at the station until July 23, while the crew take in the 7,600 pounds of research equipment it carried.The equipment is for a variety of science projects relevant to NASA research into future missions to the moon and to Mars.One example of the science equipment now at the ISS includes materials for measuring the behavior of gels in a microgravity environment, which could be potentially useful for growing food here on Earth or for actually growing materials in space.
