Is Valve’s Steam Dominance Killing PC Gaming

Earlier this week I wrote about a recurring problem in games, and what I was going to do as a member of the media to try and fix it. Today I’m going to talk about something I’m doing to fix it as a customer and gamer. I hadn’t intended to write a follow-up piece, but I hit a bit of a breaking point this week with the one-two punch of PewDiePie dropping the n-word on stream and Bungie removing a white supremacist symbol from its Destiny 2. Both events are part of a wretched pattern...

Astronomers Ponder The Role Of Physics In Life

Understanding the origin of life is arguably one of the most compelling quests for humanity. This quest has inevitably moved beyond the puzzle of life on Earth to whether there’s life elsewhere in the universe. Is life on Earth a fluke? Or is life as natural as the universal laws of physics? Jeremy England, a biophysicist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, is trying to answer these profound questions. In 2013, he formulated a hypothesis that physics may spontaneously trigger chemicals...

Astronomers Find Titanium Oxide On Aline Planet

For the first time ever, titanium oxide has been spotted in an exoplanet’s skies, a new study reports. Astronomers using the European Southern Observatory’s Very Large Telescope (VLT) in Chile detected the substance in the atmosphere of WASP-19b, a huge, scorching-hot planet located 815 light-years from Earth. The presence of titanium oxide in the atmosphere of WASP-19b can have substantial effects on the atmospheric temperature structure and circulation,” study co-author Ryan MacDonald,...

Did Qualcomm Inadvertently Help Apple

Qualcomm has published a blog post that praises itself and its Android partners for inventing all the industry firsts that Apple is claiming to have invented in its iPhone X. These include wireless charging, dual-camera systems, OLED smartphone screens, edge-to-edge displays, and more features that the upcoming iPhone X has. The blog is a reminder to Apple about how dependent the fruity cargo-cult is on Qualcomm technology. Inventions from Qualcomm lay the foundation for so many technologies and...

With Boron On Mars Prove Life Once Existed

NASA’s Mars rover Curiosity has discovered boron in Gale Crater — new evidence that the Red Planet may have been able to support life on its surface in the ancient past. Boron is a very interesting element to astrologists; on Earth, it’s thought to stabilize the sugary molecule ribose. Ribose is a key component of ribonucleic acid (RNA), a molecule that’s present in all living cells and drives metabolic processes. But ribose is notoriously unstable, and to form RNA, it is thought...

Will The iPhone X Hurt Hurt Apple’s Partners

Apple suppliers’ shares have taken a hammering after the launch of the iPhone X because European investors are concerned that the phone will not be a success. While Apple’s shares were not badly affected by the launch, investors are concerned about what it cost its suppliers to stay on the supply list. Apple has been famously leaning on suppliers to reduce their prices to keep its margins wide. That would be ok for the suppliers if the iPhoneX was a success, but Wall Street is not so certain. ...

Chrome 63 To Start Warning Users Of Man In The Middle Attacks

Google Chrome 63 will warn users when third-party software is performing a Man-in-the-Middle (MitM) attack that hijacks their internet connection.  A MitM attack happens when a communication between two systems is intercepted by a malicious actor through an application installed on a user’s computer, enabling them to send, alter and receive data meant for someone else. It isn’t an easy attack to perpetrate, mainly because many MitM toolkits fail to correctly rewrite the user’s...

Astronomers Discuss The Phenomena Of Black Holes

Paul Sutter is an astrophysicist at The Ohio State University and the chief scientist at COSI Science Center. Sutter is also host of Ask a Spaceman, We Don’t Planet, and COSI Science Now. Sutter contributed this article to Space.com’s Expert Voices: Op-Ed & Insights. I think it’s time for everyone to admit that black holes are annoying. Out there, drifting around the galaxy — with their much bigger cousins lurking in the centers of those galaxies — black holes are the ultimate...

Cassini Captures On Saturn’s Rings

NASA’s Cassini spacecraft has captured a spectacular photo of a perplexing wave structure in one of Saturn’s rings as the probe heads into its final days at the gas giant.  The rings of Saturn are embedded with billions of water-ice particles ranging in size from grains of sand to monstrous chunks. Saturn’s rings also feature waves that propagate outward in spiral patterns.  The new image from Cassini captures an up-close view of a spiral density wave visible in Saturn’s...
