    Xbox chief: we need to create a Netflix of video games

    Something big has happened to the video game industry over the last five years – you may have noticed.

And somewhere in the middle of all this, peo...

    US officials: Syria moves planes to Russian base

    The Syrian government has relocated the majority of its combat planes to protect them from potential US strikes, two US defense officials told CNN Wednesday. The movement of the aircraft to the air base at Bassel Al-Assad International Airport began shortly after the US's April 6 Tomahawk cruise missile strike on Sharat air base, which destroyed some 24 Syrian warplanes in retaliation for a chemical weapons attack that the US says Syria launched from that airfield.

    7 Major Experiments That Still Haven’t Found What They’re Looking For

    Being an experimental scientist can sometimes seem like a thankless task. You may be used to reading headlines about experiments that end up making great discoveries, but less is heard about the (often heroic) efforts of experimentalists that have yet to detect or observe what they set out to. Some of these efforts have spanned decades in time and generations of manpower and expertise. However, the absence of a result is often just as scientifically meaningful as any popularized discovery...

    Here’s a rumor we’ve not heard before. According to a report from The Wall Street Journal, the next iPhones will feature a “USB-C port for the power cord and other peripheral devices instead of the company’s original Lightning connector.” The wording isn’t 100 percent clear, but the WSJ seems to be suggesting that Apple will drop the iPhone’s proprietary Lightning port in favor of the industry’s standard USB Type-C connector.

    10 ways animals are smarter than you think

    Inside her Harvard laboratory, animal psychologist Irene Pepperberg introduces me to Athena, a 3-year-old African gray parrot. Athena decides she’s more interested in Pepperberg’s fingers and clamps a powerful beak around a fingertip. “Gentle!” Pepperberg admonishes. “Tickle,” the bird pipes up. “Tickle, yeah,” Pepperberg counters. “That was some cute little tickle.” Athena redeems herself when Pepperberg quizzes her on the color of a plastic cup. “Ya-yow,” Athena rasps o...

    Woman charged in teen's shooting says she felt unsafe

    A central Georgia woman charged with shooting a teenage boy in the head said she and her husband had been terrorized by young people throwing rocks for days before she opened fire. Elisabeth Cannon told The Telegraph of Macon (http://bit.ly/2k86YS8 ) in a story published Friday they felt "felt really unsafe and extremely threatened" before the shooting. Cannon said she had called police about the teenagers two days before the gunfire, but officers only told the teens to stay away.
