Google’s Android Messages has received a new update. The patch log of the new version 2.7 doesn’t contain details about any changes, but a teardown of the APK file has revealed a few notable additions.
If his approval rating isn’t registering and Donald Trump needs help determining who is not on his side of history these days, he can look for answers in Marshawn Lynch’s wardrobe.
The Oakland Raiders running back, known just as much for his on the field antics as he is for his playful treatment of the media, was spotted wearing a shirt with a strong message ahead of Sunday’s game against the Denver Broncos: “Everybody vs. Trump.”
You might not know that WhatsApp isn’t just bound to your phone, though. You can use it on your computer, too. This lets you get a better look at photos, makes reading lengthy paragraphs a little more manageable, and allows you to scroll faster through group messages to get to what you’re looking for.
Last week we passed along the sad story about Madison Coe, the 14-year old girl who was electrocuted after bringing her cellphone into the bath with her. Yesterday, the Lovington Police released a text that was apparently sent just before Coe was shocked to death. The text, sent to a friend, contained a photo of an extension cord wrapped in a towel and read, “When you use and (SIC) extension cord so you can plug your phone in while you’re in the bath.”
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and the Lovington Police Department have determined that the phone itself never was submerged …
LeBron James may have just lost the NBA Finals, but that didn’t stop him from enjoying Father’s Day in the best way possible — by celebrating one of his sons.
Posting a well-edited video on Instagram on Sunday, James showed off the lavish celebration held for his son’s 10th birthday on Saturday.
Aside from the telltale signs of a rich kid’s party (there were personalized football and soccer fields with his son’s name on them) we also get to see James dunking on his son’s friends and even chasing them around with water balloons. Read more…

It’s time to make America gay again.
And Debra Messing’s fire acceptance speech for Excellence in Media at the 28th annual GLAAD Media Awards on Saturday may be the perfect place to start.
Equal part hilarious and scathing, the actress, who recently signed on for the impending Will & Grace revival, didn’t mince words in her call to action. Especially not when it came to Ivanka Trump.
“There is someone I would like to make a direct appeal to this evening: The Secretary of State, Ivanka Trump,” said Messing. “Ivanka, girlfriend, what are you doing? Come on, it’s me Deb, let’s talk for a second, one Jewish mother to another. It is not enough to simply say that women’s issues are important to you, it’s time to do something.” Read more…
The first thing to come to mind when you think of J.K. Rowling’s Twitter feed would probably be her impressive ability to call people out and shut down trolls.
But that’s not the only thing she uses Twitter for.
On Sunday, the Harry Potter author marked Mother’s Day in the UK by sharing a photo of herself as a little girl with her mum, Anne, and her sister.
The UK’s most renowned theoretical physicist and cosmologist is still using his exceptional mind to map a theory of how the universe works. But when it comes to matters here on Earth, Stephen Hawking is just as concerned about President Trump’s science policies as anyone.
During a recent interview with Good Morning Britain, set to air Monday, Hawking bluntly laid out his views on U.S. administration’s science policies.
“Climate change is one of the great dangers we face, and it’s one we can prevent,” said Hawking, according to the Guardian. “It affects America badly, so tackling it should win votes for his [Trump’s] second term. God forbid.” Read more…
