USB-C's bidirectional power flow is great, until you drain your phone from 75% to 0 while it charges your portable battery. Twice in 2 days.

We deal with gravity everyday and yet we don't understand it easily until we see it

North Korea is something of a locked box to the rest of the world, and even one of the handiest apparatuses through which you can glimpse cultural habits—the internet—is largely inaccessible to anyone outside the country. Thanks to what appears to be an accidental reveal, however, we can now peek inside North Korea’s internet tubes.

Chinese skeletons from ancient Roman Empire. 
Two skeletons have been discovered in a London graveyard which could change our view of the history of Europe and Asia.

My high school had a black homecoming queen this year (pictured on the right). This would have never happened when I was in high school. Although black students were part of the homecoming court (one homecoming maid of each race for each grade), no black student was ever elected as queen. The school remains 65% white and 35% black to this day. I suppose we've made a little progress. The young woman in the middle looks like she'd rather be anywhere else.

We're running this really cool test on Windows Central, Android Central, and iMore. Before putting up a ton of photos comparing some of the more capable phones out there with one of us telling you which was best, we stripped the EXIF data and have created a big poll for everyone to vote.

Each time you load the page the order you see the images are randomized, and we aren't even telling you which phones are being used. It's blind, it's random, and the results will be available in about a week. The best part of this experiment so far is looking at the comments on each site.

Windows Central is an immediate dumpster fire, with people still claiming the best camera on a phone is a Lumia from three years ago and a bunch of other nonsense.

Android Central is slightly less of a dumpster fire but still pretty bad, filled with folks trying so hard to figure out a way to insert their own bias into the mix.

iMore is probably my favorite, with many of the comments aimed at Apple's talking points of color accuracy. It doesn't matter which photo they find the most visually pleasing or detailed, they want to know which was the truest to life.

I love all of this. It's an incredible mess and I can't wait to see the final results.
