FACEBOOK Messenger is reportedly down across large parts of Europe and North America. Thousands of people in Europe and the United States have reported the problem. Users in Western Europe and California seemed to be the worst affected, with the Down Detector finding 2,535 reports in the last ten minutes. It comes just days after Facebook unveiled a new feature that allows users to delete embarrassing messages. The 'remove for everyone' feature gives users ten minutes to delete a sent message for both parties. It is not known whether technical issues with the feature triggered the outage. One user wrote: "Facebook messenger is down can’t load messages what’s going on here!" Another added: "Anyone else Facebook messenger not working??"

Dressed in moccasins and a rabbit-skin shroud, a man was laid to rest in a cave in Nevada about 10,600 years ago. Now, his mummy is helping scientists fill in the fuzzy picture of how humans first migrated into the Americas. Scientists have sequenced the genome of the Spirit Cave Mummy —the oldest human mummy found in North America—along with 14 other ancient individuals from the Americas. The genome revealed the mummy's Native American ancestry, which has allowed his living tribe to properly bury him. The similarities in the DNA from people who lived as far north as Alaska and as far south as Patagonia suggest the continents'first settlers spread out quickly, according to the study published Nov. 8 in the journal Science. [In Photos: Human Skeleton Sheds Light on First Americans] "These findings imply that the first peoples were highly skilled at moving rapidly across an utterly unfamiliar and empty landscape," study co-author David Meltzer, of Southern Methodist … [Read more...] about North America’s Oldest Mummy Sheds Light on Ancient Migrations
OnePlus has announced that the “thunder purple” variant of the OnePlus 6T smartphone will be available for purchase in North America and Europe starting on November 15th. The special purple variant first debuted in China last week. Much like the midnight and mirror black versions of the 6T, the thunder purple model is available with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage and will sell for $579. All of the other features, including compatibility with Verizon and the in-screen fingerprint scanner, are also available on the thunder purple model. The purple color way isn’t a solid color, but a gradient that fades from black to purple from the top to the bottom of the phone. It has a smooth, matte finish, like the midnight black model, and retains the “S-curve” that’s visible under the glass when it reflects light. The OnePlus 6T is one of the best smartphone values of the year, with a large, vibrant screen, fast performance, and great software for much less … [Read more...] about The OnePlus 6T ‘thunder purple’ is coming to North America and Europe this week
OnePlus has become somewhat infamous for releasing new colors for its smartphones shortly after they initially launch, and that pattern is continuing once more with the new Thunder Purple color for the OnePlus 6T. Thunder Purple was first introduced in China on November 5, but starting November 15, it'll be available in North America and Europe. The color really is something, and OnePlus appears to have had a lot of fun describing it in a press release that was sent out: The gradient fades from black to purple under the frosted glass-backed OnePlus 6T, with the evocative 'S' curve racing across the back and highlighting the depth of color. OnePlus paid meticulous attention to detail to craft the perfect look, with a balance of how light reacts to the glass' haze, roughness, gloss, transparency and reflective qualities. If you want to pick up a 6T in Thunder Purple for yourself, you'll be able to purchase it starting November 15 for $579. You get 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage … [Read more...] about Thunder Purple OnePlus 6T coming to North America and Europe on Nov. 15
