You’ve already run out of Destiny 2 content, and you’ve only played it for 200 hours! Well, developer Bungie sympathizes with your plight, and its big Curse of Osiris expansion is due out December 5. That should give you time to play some other holiday releases … or to yell at Bungie about the lack of content on the internet. Bungie officially revealed 169

October 28, 2017 12:49 AM Weinstein sex accusations show the power of social media and the limits of shame in our celebrity-driven world

Note to men with unseemly, to say nothing of perverse, intentions: There are no more hiding places. Twitter, Facebook and other social media outlets are the town criers of our petulant, righteous age. They are where we rant, titillate, philosophize, sermonize and, in the case of the sex scandals, unmask and shame our latest objects of wrath, including 166

October 27, 2017 5:17 PM Google Pixel 2 XL Review

This is Google's vision for the perfect smartphone. Google’s Pixel smartphones are designed from the ground up to be the purest expression of what an Android smartphone should be.

October 27, 2017 1:00 PM David Harbour on the mystery of Stranger Things

New York — Even the title is enigmatic. Stranger Things could mean so many things: The recent extreme weather; Washington politics; fad recipes for kale. Nearly everyone knows about Stranger Things. But who can explain what this enigmatic sci-fi-horror series is really about? The second season of Stranger Things — all nine episodes worth — will be released 503

October 25, 2017 1:06 PM Zimbabwe's grim hospital wards fuel outrage toward WHO

Harare - An emergency tray at a public hospital in Zimbabwe stands empty, for medical supplies have run out - one example why President Robert Mugabe's brief appointment as WHO "goodwill ambassador" provoked such outrage. Under Mugabe's rule, life expectancy in Zimbabwe dived from 61 in 1985 to just 44 in 2002, before recovering to 60 today, due largely 159

October 24, 2017 7:24 PM Albert Einstein's note on happiness sells for $1.3 million at Jerusalem auction

The famous physicist wrote the sentence on a bit of stationary after finding out he had won the 1921 Nobel Prize in physics. His words were as lucrative as they were profound. A note on happiness written by Albert Einstein in a Tokyo hotel in 1922 fetched a relatively high price of $1.3 million (€1.1 million) at a Jerusalem auction house on Tuesday 306

October 24, 2017 1:17 PM Facebook Casually Considers Annihilating the Digital Media Industry

In the world of online media, Mark Zuckerberg is a capricious king, able to boost or sink a publisher with a small tweak of Facebook’s code. While news companies have slowly learned not to rely on the social network for traffic, nearly half of Americans still get some news from Facebook, making it by far the single most important digital media platform 110

October 20, 2017 9:38 PM It’s Been a Long Week. Treat Yourself to a Meteor Shower

It’s been a long week. Here’s how to find some relief in the sky. Perhaps in recognition of how dire things have gotten down here on earth, space has been putting on quite a show lately. Last night Uranus lit up the night sky, bigger and brighter than it has looked in some time. And this weekend, we’re going to get a meteor shower. Friday night (Oct. 20), the annual 139

October 17, 2017 1:08 PM Google Pixel 2 XL review: The best Android phone you can buy

Even as a longtime Pixel fan, I admit that despite Google's efforts, the Pixel 2 and the Pixel XL 2 aren't the prettiest Android phones you can buy (that honour goes to the Samsung Galaxy S8). Nor are they overflowing with features, however superfluous, like retina scanning, facial recognition or wireless charging. And, while lasting a full day, they don't 264
