Short story: The Rumor of Dragons

I worked regularly with murderers and worse, but the only patient that scared me was the young prosthetics engineer with a brainhack addiction I met in my office once a week.It was her eyes. They moved in a pattern neither random nor similar to any condition I had ever met, which made sense, as her neurochemistry was in a carefully self-tuned and almost unique state. That was what brainhack did: the combination of drugs, implants, and software allowed people to achieve cognitive and emotional co...

Fortnite Remains Banned From Apple's App Store After Judge Refuses Epic's Request

Epic Games "did not win its preliminary injunction in its antitrust action against Apple, which would have forced Apple to allow Fortnite back onto the iPhone, iPad, and Mac," reports BGR, calling it "the decision we warned you about a few weeks ago." Gonzalez Rogers hinted during the injunction relief hearing a few weeks ago that she wasn't inclined to side with Epic when it comes to Fortnite.

The Otto Wilde Grill delivers the drama of delicious restaurant steak at home

Like many folks this year, I have been cooking a lot.

What if a Medical Treatment Could Change Your Political Or Religious Beliefs?

A research fellow at the University of Oxford's Wellcome Centre for Ethics and Humanities writes in Scientific American: How would you feel about a new therapy for your chronic pain, which — although far more effective than any available alternative — might also change your religious beliefs? Or a treatment for lymphoma that brings one in three patients into remission, but also made them more likely to vote for your least preferred political party? These seem like idle hypothetical questions ...

Spaces or Tabs? Microsoft Developers Reveal Their Preferences

In a new video, Microsoft's principal cloud advocate and DevOps lead weighed in on that crucial and perennial developer question: which is better, indenting your code with spaces or with tabs? "This is kind of a loaded question... However, I am very opinionated on this. I happen to be a huge fan of tabs, for a couple of reasons. Number one, your file size is going to be much smaller, because a tab is just one character. Okay, okay, granted this isn't a big deal any more, but I'm old as dirt, ...

iPhone 12 May See 5G Connectivity Issues in the UK

The upcoming iPhone 12 may have serious issues connecting to 5G in the United Kingdom, reports The Telegraph. The report cites "industry insiders" who say that ‌iPhone 12‌ models may not support the 700MHz 5G band. Lower-spectrum bands such as 700MHz are crucial to 5G coverage since they are far-reaching and penetrate well through walls and buildings, and 700MHz is expected to be the most common form of 5G in the UK. "If it doesn't support 700MHz then you end up with coverage problems," said...
