First you have to have a phone that's good enough to get someone to buy. LG has done that with the G5, imperfect as it may be. Motorola could certainly do that with a new Moto X or Moto Z. But even then, you're asking folks to buy more on top of what they've already spent — and then carry it around in addition to the phone itself. Additional functionality is usually a good thing.

As a result, over the last three years or so, a series of landmark papers has used these new high-resolution dates to nail the link between several mass extinction events and an epic class of volcanic eruption called "Large Igneous Provinces" or "LIPs," whose effects were frighteningly evocative of modern climate change. This is the case for the end-Triassic mass extinction 201 million years ago, the end-Permian mass extinction 251.9 million years ago, as well as for the Toarcian extinction in the Jurassic, the Capitanian extinction in the Permian, The Early-Middle Cambrian Extinction, and the more minor Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maxiumum (PETM). … [Read more...] about What Really Killed the Dinosaurs?

I'm all for OnePlus working its butt of to create a wireless charging system that allows for Warp Charge speeds in a wireless form factor, but until that time comes, at least give people the option to have slower wireless charging speeds rather than hold the feature hostage. Fast wireless charging is better than slow wireless charging, but slow wireless charging is better than no wireless charging at all. … [Read more...] about OnePlus needs to swallow its pride and support wireless charging
The benefits from studying the human genome required developing the field of genomics. The same will be true for the human screenome, the unique individual record of experiences that constitute psychological and social life on digital devices. Researchers now have the technologies to begin a serious study of screenomics, which we describe in the journal Nature. Now we need the data — a collective effort to produce, map and analyze a large and informative set of screenomes. A Human Screenome Project could inform academics, health professionals, educators, parents, advocacy groups, tech companies and policymakers about how to maximize the potential of media and remedy its most pernicious effects. … [Read more...] about Here’s What Scientists Know About ‘Screen Time’ and Your Health
