The internet today is driven by smartphones, tablets, and personal computers: devices that deliver information for human consumption. In five years, those devices will be in the minority, outnumbered by machines designed to communicate with one another in “smart” homes, offices, cities, and cars...
In April, a photograph of Rihanna and Lupita Nyong’o taken at a Miu Miu fashion show three years ago began recirculating online. Their friendly body language and chic clothes (Rihanna wore thigh-highs, fur and leather; Lupita a plum jacket with a jeweled collar) caught the imagination of the inte...
Two major grassroots campaigns show not only the depth of public concern about protecting the Internet from the FCC under Ajit Pai, they’ve reaffirmed EFF’s ongoing work to push back and make sure the Internet remains free. In March, Congress sparked widespread outrage by voting to repeal the b...
Wearable technology has been around just as long as the portable listening device, but originally in the form of a wristband that only told you how many steps you had taken that day; but not very accurately. With the invention of the smartphone, we now have Bluetooth enabled bands that can monitor o...
According to Mary Meeker’s evaluation of internet trends report, the Indian market is showing a major hike in internet usage, thanks to low-cost data.

Over a million devices have already been affected by an Android malware named Gooligan, which compromises Google account data on these devices, giving the attacker access to user’s Gmail, Google Photos, Google Docs, Google Play, Google Drive and other Google-related applications. According to ...
Brains been the subject of speculation, prodding, poking, and just plain head-scratching approximately ever since they started to function. The Ancient Egyptians saw no spiritual significance for the brain, so it never got its own special jar for burial. However, as time marched on, and medical adva...
A slice through largest-ever three-dimensional map of the Universe. Earth can be seen on the left, and distances to galaxies and quasars are labelled by the lookback time to the objects (how long light from an object has been traveling to reach Earth). Locations of quasars are shown by the red dots,...
  Google Android will power new cars from Volvo and Audi The operating system will enable more functions than Android Auto, such as more integrated voice control and Google Assistant. Google will discuss the launch more during Google I/O this week. Google announced on Monday that new ...
A SpaceX Dragon spacecraft hangs outside the International Space Station's Cupola module (Photo: NASA) SpaceX is revolutionising the space industry with its reusable rockets and ambitious plans to colonise Mars. But it's also going to help internet connectivity here on Earth by launch...
Move over Tatooine — having two suns is old news. New research shows that the closest exoplanet to Earth — Proxima b — may have just one-upped the fictional Star Wars desert world by possessing not two, but three stars as a part of its orbit....
Scientists may have found a new supernova explosion or supermassive black hole in a galaxy about 600 million light years from Earth after pointing a telescope there for the first time in a couple of decades and spotting something super bright near its center. The National Radio Astronomy O...
You’re forgiven if the name KIC 8462852 doesn’t ring a bell. It’s a far-off object, thought to be a star, which was only just discovered in late 2015, but it’s already managed to totally confuse researchers in its extremely brief stint on the scientific stage. The star has continually exhibi...
A Hubble Space Telescope image of the distant universe. Credit: NASA.   Looking up into the night sky, it's challenging enough for an amateur astronomer to count the number of naked-eye stars that are visible. With bigger telescopes, more stars become visible, making counting impossible be...
An infrared image of 47 Tucanae, a dense globular cluster of stars located roughly 16,000 light years from Earth. A new study has predicted that a black hole lies at its center. (2MASS / T. Jarrett) A new method could help scientists peer inside universe’s densest star clusters to find undisc...
Researchers believe split between chimps and humans occurred in eastern Europe, not Africa A jawbone discovered by German troops in Athens during the Second World War could be evidence that apes and humans diverged 200,000 years earlier than the current theory says. Chimpanzees and bonobos are ...
This article was originally published on The Conversation. Read the original article. They’re mysterious bursts of radio waves from space that are over in a fraction of a second. Fast Radio Bursts (FRBs) are thought to occur many thousands of times a day, but since their first detec...
The orbits of all seven Earth-size planets in the TRAPPIST-1 system are now known. Astronomers have nailed down the path of TRAPPIST-1h, the outermost planet in the system, finding that this world takes just under 19 Earth days to complete one lap around its small, faint host star.  T...
BREAKING BARRIERS With the advent of the internet, there are fewer barriers to communication than ever before. Distance has basically become negligible in terms of talking to each other. Ongoing developments have continued to make it even easier. Now, in many cases, language is no longer a barr...

What does fast food have to do with interstellar travel? At first blush, not much. But halfway through the film, “The Founder,” on a grueling, recent ten hour flight, it hit me that aerospace, even NASA, might learn something from McDonald’s corporation founding CEO Ray Kroc. Three years befor...
