Will Samsung Recall The Galaxy Note 5

Days after Apple finally decided to replace faulty cameras on a batch of their premium phones, we find out that there’s a serious design flaw in Samsung’s newest flagship phablet with a pen. You know how Apple invests a lot of effort into filming gorgeous-looking promotional videos for their overpriced products?

Did Stephen Hawking Solve A Major Black Hole Mystery?

Stephen Hawking may have just solved one of the most vexing mysteries in physics — the “information paradox.” Einstein’s theory of general relativity predicts that the physical information about material gobbled up by a black hole is destroyed, but the laws of quantum mechanics stipulate that information is eternal. Therein lies the paradox. Hawking — working with Malcolm Perry, of the University of Cambridge in England, and Harvard University’s Andrew Stromberg — has...

Do Large Galaxies Off The Best Chances For Alien Life?

Galaxies like the Milky Way may not be the best cradles of life in the universe — giant galaxies devoid of newborn stars and at least twice as massive as the Milky Way could host 10,000 times more habitable planets, researchers say. In the past 20 years, astronomers have confirmed the existence of nearly 1,900 planets that orbit stars other than our sun. These findings have led researchers to speculate which moons, planets and stars might be the best at supporting recognizable forms of life. Scientists...

Google Including Tweets In Desktop Search

An earlier agreement between Google and Twitter that has placed tweets in Google search results on mobile devices since earlier this year has now been expanded to the desktop. Relevant tweets will appear in desktop results for queries performed in English.

Last Friday, for instance, a search for “President Obama” returned recent...
