There's a striking difference between Obama and Trump's responses to school shootings


On Friday, President Donald Trump visited Parkland, Florida in the wake of a school shooting in a high school that left 17 people dead. But Trump has faced criticism over the way he carried himself during that visit.

After an awkward meeting with first responders, the president and first lady Melania Trump stood together for a friendly photo op, which in itself seems insensitive. Trump had a huge smile on his face in the photo, and flashed his now signature thumbs up.

Trump updated his Twitter cover photo with the picture from the meeting Friday evening.

Citi analysts say that there's a 4-in-10 chance that Apple buys Netflix

Apple is sitting with a vault so full of money that even Scrooge McDuck is jealous. Every now and then, Apple uses some of this money to make a small acquisition. For example, the company recently took $400 million out of petty cash to buy music discovery app Shazam. The largest acquisition that Apple has made by itself is the $3 billion it spent to purchase Beats Audio. But if a pair of Citi analysts are correct, there is a chance that Apple will top that record by a factor of approximately 34.

According to Citi analysts Jim Suva and Asiya Merchant, there is a 40% possibility that Apple …

Dave Chappelle just dropped two Netflix specials, but there's a problem


Dave Chappelle is widely considered to be a comedic genius. So when Netflix announced it had released two Chappelle stand-up specials, people freaked. A little comedy to wrap up this bitter year has to be a good thing, right?

Well, maybe. But maybe not. The specials just dropped, but there’s already some pushback when it comes to Chappelle’s thoughts on the transgender community. 

Of the two videos, “The Bird Revelation” and “Equanimity,” it’s the latter that is once again bringing Chappelle’s controversial views into the spotlight. In it, he reflects on past jokes of his that critics have called transphobic.  Read more…

LG G6 is one of the many flagships that has yet to be updated to the most recent version of Android. Although the South Korean company promised to deliver Android Oreo to the LG G6 as fast as possible, it looks like the update won’t make it live until next year.

As some of you probably know by now, LG has already kicked off an Android Oreo beta program for the G6, but it’s only available in China. Now we have more information that indicates the Asian version of the LG G6 might be the first to receive the update.

According to LG Customer Service, an Android Ore update for the LG G6 …

Alleged Galaxy S9 components smile for the camera: there's a spot for a headphone jack

It’s a bit comical that the presence of a headphone jack would be such a hot topic in this modern day and age. It has been around since the 1950s and installed on pretty much any portable audio device since the original Walkman. Yet, in 2016, Apple pushed for a revolution — it made the “courageous” step of removing the 3.5 mm jack from the iPhone 7, stating that it’s old tech and the phone is better off without it.

Now, we know that there were a few smartphones that tried to do away with the jack before, but they were largely unnoticed and forgotten. When Apple made the move, it opened the …

Somewhere in Las Vegas, there's a warehouse containing debris from UFOs


Let’s be clear: “U.F.O.” is an acronym for “unidentified flying object.” It doesn’t necessarily mean aliens.

But it also might mean aliensSorry, Miriam.

A Saturday report in the New York Times lays out the details of a secret, Defense Department-funded “Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program,” formed to investigate UFO reports.  Among the more sensational details is the revelation that a number of buildings in Las Vegas were modified to house “metal alloys and other materials … from unidentified aerial phenomena.” Read more…

Google bans Android apps that show ads on your lockscreen, there's a catch however

In a rather user-friendly move today, Google has changed its Play Store policies and no longer allows apps that place obtrusive ads on your handset’s lock screen. The new change affects all apps whose purpose is any other from being lockscreens themselves and is detailed in the the developers’ monetization support page. It reads as follows:

“Unless the exclusive purpose of the app is that of a lockscreen, apps may not introduce ads or features that monetize the locked display of a device.”
