The Razer Phone’s Kernel Source Code has been Released - The Razer Phone is the first Android smartphone sold in western markets with a 120Hz display. Although marketed at gamers, its technical specifications should excite any Android enthusiast. It has the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC with 8GBs of RAM and a beefy 4,000 mAh battery which, according to the CEO, is possible due to the removal of the 3.5mm headphone jack. It went on sale last month in the United States for $700, and most early ...

10 Movies Parents Thought Were For Kids (And Were SO Wrong)

Okay, first off, I agree with everything in this article. That is my opening statement about the movie. It is packed with spoilers so reader beware.

A few additional thoughts, with spoiler space although I'm not really gonna talk plot points.

* It runs longer than it needed to. It is that kind of Return of the King thing where, instead of too many endings, there are too many acts. It felt like five act Shakespeare instead of three act Empire Strikes Back. It's a pace my movie brain isn't accustomed to.

* The moral ambiguity throughout the movie is absolutely marvelous. I have no idea how my kid will take it. These are not the black and white morality tales Lucas told.

* My wife hated the staging and costuming around Snoke's court but I super loved it. Favorite part of the movie.

* I've never belly laughed so much at a Star Wars movie. Again, a matter of taste. Everyone gets at least one terrific laugh line.

* The acting in this episode is the best of the series, despite some maybe clunky dialogue. One of my favorite movie things is watching skilled actors taking terrible material and doing their level best with it. There's no strictly terrible material but three are some clunkers. Beautifully delivered clunkers.

And that's about all I have to say. My only grievance, and it is so minor, is that it felt long-ish.

The Dino is delayed

Most Windows users can download iTunes outside of Microsoft’s Store, but Windows 10 S users (are there any?) can only run apps available in the Microsoft Store.

Note
The dino is definitely no showpiece for Apple’s software developers. They should separate features for managing your devices from features for DJs.

A President's Name Has Become a Racial Jeer
"Trump" is no "I Like Ike"

Historians can't think of a time in America's history where a president's name has been used as a racial taunt. "...white fans at suburban Canton High School in Connecticut shouted “Trump! Trump! Trump!” as players from Hartford’s Classical Magnet School, which is predominantly black and Latino, took foul shots during a basketball playoff game. "

“If you’re hunting for historical analogies, I think you’re in virgin territory,” said Jon Meacham, the author of several books about presidents, including a Pulitzer Prize-winning biography of Andrew Jackson.

'Michael Beschloss, a presidential historian, agrees. “If you’re looking at modern presidents, fill in the blank and see if it can be used in the same way,” he said. “You will see it has not. Hoover? Or Eisenhower? Can you imagine a situation like that?”

I am with Frank on this reading of the last Jedi. As a movie it was nice entertainment. It is rapidly turning into a soap opera. Don't read the article if you intend to watch the movie. Spoilers contained within. It is not great or fantastic. It is Disney.

“This issue is not about regulating content or speech or anything like that. It’s about protecting public health when there is unquestionably a significant impact, particularly on children and youth. As elected leaders, we clearly have an obligation to prevent an industry from exploiting people.”

Water On Mars? : Previous evidence of water on Mars now identified as grainflows | #Geology #GeologyPage #Mars

Dark features previously proposed as evidence for significant liquid water flowing on Mars have now been identified as granular flows, where sand and dust move rather than liquid water, according to a new article published in Nature Geoscience by the U.S. Geological Survey.

In a tally of nerve cells in the outer wrinkles of the brain, a dog wins

Comparing neuron numbers across species could provide clues to animals’ smarts. If more nerve cells mean more smarts, then dogs beat cats, paws down, a new study on carnivores shows. That harsh reality may shock some friends of felines, but scientists say the real surprises are inside the brains of less popular carnivores. Raccoon brains are packed with nerve cells, for instance, while brown bear brains are sorely lacking. By comparing the numbers of nerve cells, or neurons, among eight species of carnivores (ferret, banded mongoose, raccoon, cat, dog, hyena, lion and brown bear), researchers now have a better understanding of how different-sized brains are built. This neural accounting, described in an upcoming Frontiers in Neuroanatomy paper, may ultimately help reveal how brain features relate to intelligence.
