A major vulnerability has been discovered in the protocol governing basically all modern wi-fi routers. Here's what we know so far.
Overnight, Huawei has announced two new phones that it thinks will beat out all comers. The new Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro take on the best of Apple and Samsung and Google with the brightest camera lenses ever, Huawei's slickest design yet and some brand new hardware and software inside. Here's how much they'll cost, and when you can get them in Australia.
A disgusting factor which separates consuming human flesh from consuming muscle tissue of non-speaking animals is that you can't separate eating dead humans from eating live humans. In the way that you call a baby cow "veal" or a pig "pork," human flesh is just human flesh -- you wouldn't think about eating Dave's "rounds" or his "snout," you would think about eating Dave's arse and face.
Perhaps you've been using the same browser since you first unboxed your phone, or perhaps you switch between them on a weekly basis: There are just as many choices for browsers on mobile as there are on desktop and each runs a little differently. Below we've run through every major browser available -- from stalwarts like Chrome and Safari to newer browsers like Puffin.
Technology experts have been insisting for over a century that when the robot revolution finally succeeds, everyone will have a life of abundant wealth and leisure. That hasn't been the case. But it hasn't stopped plenty of people from still insisting that it will happen, even here in the year 2017.
Overnight, scientists announced a significant discovery: the first detection of gravitational waves during a pair of neutron stars colliding and forming a black hole. This opens up a huge swathe of new research in astronomy, and Australian scientists -- including those that took part in the event -- are understandably excited.
Victims of revenge porn -- the nonconsensual distribution of explicit images -- have a difficult path to navigate to regain their privacy and seek justice. The laws have yet to catch up to the crime, and the average person doesn't have the means to quickly take down intimate images from the web -- they're often at the mercy of tech giants. But the Australian government is trying to address the issue with a national portal dedicated to offering support and reporting tools for revenge porn victims.
If you're in the market for a Google Pixel 2 when it comes out on October 31, you're probably in the market for a case too. The pair go together like hand in glove and, just like gloves, there are plenty of options to wrap around your phone to keep it safe. Here are a few of the cases coming out soon for the Pixel 2.
Vicky Kalogera, a Northwestern University physicist, took her week of much-needed vacation in Utah this past August. She promised her family she'd stay off of email for a week. It wasn't a real promise, of course, but she was going to try. She'd arranged the perfect day for August 17. Her husband was going to take the kids hiking in Arches National Park while she'd spend the whole day at the spa. Right as she left her room, she just had to give her email a peep. The deluge brought the news: Telescopes and detectors across the world were making a monumental observation.
As the fall smartphone season starts to wind down, the number two smartphone maker in the world (it's not Apple anymore) is sending us off with its answer to this year's batch of iPhones, Pixels, and Galaxies with the Huawei Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro.
London's famous Piccadilly Circus is getting an immense and terrifying new video display called Piccadilly Lights. According to its maker, the enormous screen (which is almost the size of two professional basketball courts) can detect the vehicles, ages, and even emotions of people nearby, and respond by playing targeted ads. Imagine New York's Time Square with a makeover from John Carpenter's They Live -- but without any pretense of deception.
Warning: though this clip from the latest episode of The Exorcist is a dinner scene, you should absolutely not eat while you watch it. The scene shows the clandestinely demonic Cardinal Guillot (Torrey Hanson) and his various evil associates getting their just desserts... literally. Arya Stark would be proud.
Welcome back to Toy Aisle, our weekly round up of all the fabulous new toys just waiting to drain our wallets of their precious monetary fluids. This week, Hot Toys tackles The Last Jedi's most important characters, plus a patriotically posable Captain America, and even stranger Stranger Things board games.
After years of floundering, T-Mobile has become a real threat to Verizon and AT&T by offering options that the latter carriers didn't. One of those options was the Mobile Without Borders plan that provided unlimited LTE data when customers travelled to Canada or Mexico. But now, the "Un-carrier" has announced the end of that deal.
Even before it was resurrected by DC earlier this year, there was always a grim, visceral quality to Jim Lee's WildStorm universe that set it apart from cape comics. WildStorm wasn't without its lighthearted moments, but it never shied away from the truth about what ultimately convinces a person to become a superhero.
