Everything we think we know about the Samsung Galaxy S8

Everything we think we know about the Samsung Galaxy S8

Samsung’s next flagship phone, the Galaxy S8, will be arriving very soon. The pressure is on for the Korean electronics giant to deliver a flagship phone that not only improves on the specs of last year’s Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, but also kicks the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus’ butt. Adding more features has always been Samsung’s approach with new flagships, but as the company is no doubt aware after the Galaxy Note7 literally burned out, everyone will be watching closely to see what new safety measures it includes…

Dave Brailsford appears to be losing his grip as hands spin out of control | Richard Williams

Early on a July morning in 2012 a small figure in black cycling kit left the village of Vielha, on the Spanish side of the Pyrenees, and set off along the quiet two‑lane road towards the Col du Portillon, a winding tree-lined climb leading to the French border. The kit was that of Team Sky, but beneath the helmet and the sunglasses it was impossible to identify the rider, only to envy him the imminent experience of a picturesque climb. Just under five miles long, with gradients averaging 6.8%, the…

Ep. 204: Mike Massimino – “I’m Not Good Enough” Probably Means You Will Get Good Enough

Ep. 204: Mike Massimino – “I’m Not Good Enough” Probably Means You Will Get Good Enough

Mike Massimino failed his PhD the first time. Failed the astronaut test the first three times. Failed to get the highest evaluation when he walked into space the first time. And almost destroyed the Hubble Telescope on the last attempt the US was going to make to fix it. But he did it. He did it all. Two things I noticed about him. One thing is he kept saying things to me like, “I wasn’t the smartest in X but…” He said that about his classmates. He said that about…

An Exhaustive Explanation of the Best Nerf Dart to Reach For in Battle

An Exhaustive Explanation of the Best Nerf Dart to Reach For in Battle

Some people take their Nerf dart blasters very seriously. There are entire leagues dedicated to running around and blasting fellow players with foam darts — essentially a less painful version of paintball. But what darts are worth arming yourself with? Nerf expert Frank Cooper breaks it down in this exhaustively comprehensive comparison video. Hasbro’s Nerf brand certainly makes a high-quality dart for its toy blasters, but they’re also more expensive than third-party alternatives. And when you’re planning to spend a few hours launching hundreds of darts at your friends, you…

The Undeniable Power of Data Mining, Visualization and Infographics for Business

Data visualization, or presenting data sets in a visually-appealing way, is becoming quite the rage in today’s data-driven world. Data is collected (and stored) at ever-increasing speeds and data scientists, the people who interpret and turn information into action, are in higher demand than ever before. As this trend ramps up, large and small companies alike have begun looking for ways to analyze the ever-increasing amount of data they acquire. But why is data so important? Data: The basics It’s expected that only 6% of all data (read: information) comes…

14 Major Travel Scams to Avoid

14 Major Travel Scams to Avoid

On my first big non-tour trip, I got scammed twice on the same day. My friend Scott and I had just arrived in Thailand. We were in Bangkok trying to find a boat cruise to take us up and down the Chao Phraya River. A taxi driver suggested this one company; we went there, and found out that an hour-long tour was only $30 USD. Not even thinking about whether that was a deal or not, we agreed. To us — still thinking about prices back home — that offer…

So Why Do Action Movies Make Actresses Fight Like This?

So Why Do Action Movies Make Actresses Fight Like This?

I’ll admit to being dumb and not noticing this before, but action movies seem to make all actresses do the same move during a fight scene: the ‘between-the-legs’ takedown. There’s different variations of it, of course, but the end result is almost always the same, someone ends up in between the action heroine’s legs, and it’s kind of weird how common it happens. This quick-hitting video from Dominick Nero for Fandor Keyframe shows fight scenes from various movies like Goldeneye, X-Men, Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation, a couple of the Fast…

Leicester board at crossroads as old ways start to look like the wrong ones | Paul Rees

“Happy new year to you all,” wrote Richard Cockerill in what turned out to be his final programme notes as Leicester’s director of rugby on Sunday. Less than 24 hours later, the club announced he had been sacked following the defeat by the Premiership club who have become as dominant this decade as the Tigers were in the 2000s, Saracens. Cockerill became the second director of rugby of a Premiership club to lose his job this season following Andy Robinson’s dismissal by Bristol and five sides are now under different…

Ep. 203: Susan David – What To Do When You’re Deeply Stuck In Your Job and Asking, “How Did I Get Here?”

It’s the most commonly believed lie. It will make you lose all your money. It’ll make you wake up in your 40’s or 50’s and wonder what you’re going to do about retirement. It will make you develop your worst possible habits. For me, it was drinking. And waking up face to floor. I was ugliest when I was unhappy. That’s true for everyone. Unless you hide it with plastic surgery and cocaine. The point is I care about myself now. And not a lot of people say that. But…
