Tim Cook took the stage in Chicago last week to unveil a host of education initiatives from Apple. Leading the announcements was a new $ 329 iPad with Apple Pencil support. This new iPad replaces last year’s model at the same price-point, and joins two iPad Pro models in Apple’s lineup.

Our 960fps slow-mo shootout video is up: Xperia XZ2 goes against the Galaxy S9

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

We had a bit of fun in the office shooting 960fps videos. We used the Sony Xperia XZ2 and the Samsung Galaxy S9 to try and find out which one does a better job at 960 frames per second. Of course, Huawei launched its own 960fps competitor earlier this week, but that’s for another time. So, how did the two competitors do? Sony came out with a 960fps-capable phone last year (the XZ1) and this year it upgraded the camera to support 1080p resolution while the Samsung is capped at 720p. However, Samsung has its own highlights – it can automatically trigger the slow-mo recording with motion…

Dutch case against Samsung for lack of updates finally heads to court

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

Early in 2016, it was revealed that Samsung was being sued in the Netherlands for failing to update its phones. The Consumentenbond—a Dutch non-profit promoting consumer protection—was taking Samsung to court for, among other things, not adequately providing two years of updates from the time of purchase. According to Telecompaper, the case is now being heard. 

Of course, Samsung does promise updates for two years after a product is launched, but the Consumentenbond believes that Samsung should be required to provide two years of updates from the time a consumer purchases it, whenever that might be.

Our Latest Weapon Against Antibiotic Resistance? Platypus Milk

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

The platypus is, frankly, a weirdo. It’s one of the last surviving species of egg-laying mammals. It has venomous flippers. And that furry body combined with the duck bill? Looks like it belongs on evolution’s blooper reel.

And now another strange element of its biology is intriguing scientists: platypus milk contains a one-of-a-kind protein that could help us fight antibiotic resistance.

For nearly 70 years, antibiotics have been our go-to treatment option for a number of conditions, from gonorrhea to pneumonia. The more we’ve used them, the more resistant to antibiotics these bugs have become, resulting in some “superbugs” that don’t respond to several types of antibiotics.

That simple fact is putting millions of lives at risk every year in the U.S. alone. In 2016, the United Nations (UN) elevated the issue to “crisis level.” UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon called it a “fundamental, long-term threat to human health, sustainable food production, and development.”

Scientists have gotten increasingly creative in their search for anything that might help humanity fight against antibiotic-resistant bacteria. In 2010, that led to the discovery that platypus milk contains antibacterial properties.

Unlike other mammals, which deliver milk to their young through teats, platypus “sweat” their milk, secreting it through the skin on their bellies for their young to drink. That leaves the offspring pretty exposed to the outside world, which may explain why platypus milk needs to contain antibacterial characteristics.

To find out exactly what makes the milk that way, a team of researchers from Australia’s Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO) and Deakin University set out to replicate one of its proteins in a lab setting.

Once they got a closer look at the protein’s structure, they were surprised to see something completely unique. The three-dimensional fold made the protein look like a ringlet. So naturally the team dubbed the protein “Shirley Temple,” a reference to the actress’ curly hair.

The researchers believe this unique structure could help develop new drugs to take down superbugs. They’re looking for collaborators to help them do more research with the intention of hastening a new antibiotic to market.

And truly, we have no time to lose.

Samsung Galaxy S9+ takes a fall: drop test against the iPhone X

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

This isn’t for the faint of heart – PhoneBuff did a drop test on the Samsung Galaxy S9+, the phone fell again and again and again. It got through surprisingly well, though not without major cosmetic damage. For the S9, Samsung made some design changes to make the phone more durable – it used thicker glass and stronger aluminum to protect that glass. Well, the front glass is thicker, the back glass is the first thing to go, watch: It’s cool to see that the variable aperture survived this ordeal, even if the selfie camera did not. Still, you may want to slap a case on your Galaxy S9+…
