    On Monday (Nov. 12), Lorde took to Instagram to accuse Kanye West and Kid Cudi of stealing the stage idea she used on her Melodrama Tour and at last year's Coachella.

    The U.S. Now Has the Two Fastest Supercomputers on Earth

    Since 2013, the U.S. and governments in Europe and Asia have been locked in a constant battle to equip supercomputers with more processing power to claim the ever-shifting title of world's fastest mega-machine. The U.S. relinquished its place at the top of the pile last June, but reclaimed it a year later when the Oak Ridge National Laboratory managed to get its Summit supercomputer online.

    Google needs to break up its all-or-nothing approach to permissions

    For a company that is making the right sort of moves around mobile permissions, even if years after Apple showed it how, Google has a massive blind spot on its assistant and assistant-promoting products like the Home Hub. At its heart, Google wants to get as much data as it possibly can from its users, and it clearly thinks that data will be handed over for the convenience of recommended content and reminders.

    We Burn More Calories in the Afternoon and Evening, Study Finds

    Our weight might not be controlled solely by what we eat. When we eat, and when we get to sleep, may be just as important. A small study published this week in Current Biology found people who had been thrown off their circadian rhythms burn more calories in the late afternoon and evening hours than in the morning, when calorie burn is at its lowest. Later in the day, calorie burn increases by 10 percent, or about 129 calories.

    'Netflix Effect:' Scotland Braces For Tourist Surge Following 'Outlaw King' Launch

    In Game of Thrones, Croatia’s ancient coastal city of Dubrovnik doubles as King’s Landing, the capital of the Seven Kingdoms.

    Vitamin D And Fish Oil Supplements Disappoint In Long-Awaited Study Results

    Many people routinely take nutritional supplements such as vitamin D and fish oil in the hopes of staving off major killers like cancer and heart disease. But the evidence about the possible benefits of the supplements has been mixed. Now, long-awaited government-funded research has produced some of the clearest evidence yet about the usefulness of taking the supplements.

    Researchers closer to gonorrhea vaccine after exhaustive analysis of proteins

    In a study of proteins historic in its scope, researchers at Oregon State University have pushed closer both to a vaccine for gonorrhea and toward understanding why the bacteria that cause the disease are so good at fending off antimicrobial drugs. The findings, published in Molecular & Cellular Proteomics, are especially important since the microbe, Neisseria gonorrhoeae, is considered a “superbug” because of its resistance to all classes of antibiotics available for treating infections.

    Microsoft Is Being Sued Over the Xbox One's Warranty-Void-if-Removed Sticker

    Microsoft is being sued for a security seal on the Xbox One console that can scare consumers into thinking that opening the device will void the warranty. Earlier this year, the Federal Trade Commission sent warning letters to six companies, including Microsoft, telling them that they were violating the federal Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, a 1975 law that forbids manufacturers from tying warranty coverage to the use of that company’s repair parts. Now, the company is being sued by a customer an...

    Samsung will cave in to the display notch trend — maybe even with the Galaxy S10

    Display notches are definitely "a thing" in modern smartphones, particularly at the high end. If you're looking to buy a new phone, it's probably going to have some sort of display notch — tall, short, wide, narrow, curved or angular ... it'll be there. That is, unless you buy a Samsung phone; the company has been staunchly anti-notch, sticking with the virtues of its curved "infinity display" as the rest of the industry pushed the bezels to their limits and ...
