Is this idea correct? Who knows. String theory is on thin theoretical ice recently, as experiments like those at the Large Hadron Collider have failed to find any hints of a theory known as supersymmetry, which is a critical underpinning of String theory . And the concept of S-branes is itself a controversial idea within the String Theory community, as it's not exactly known if branes would be allowed to exist only in one moment in time. … [Read more...] about How to build a universe after a big bounce

Plus having easy-to-use widgets that I can access anywhere by just swiping with two fingers to the left is extremely useful. Right now, the only widgets I have on that bar are the world clock – as I work with people all over the globe – and a weather app, so I can tell at a glance whether or not I'm going to melt in the New York sun as soon as I walk outside. … [Read more...] about With macOS Big Sur, Apple succeeds where Microsoft failed with Windows 8

The Galaxy S20 offers a very similar user experience compared to what you get on the Note 20 Ultra, including a 120Hz AMOLED display, top-of-the-line Snapdragon processor, and an excellent camera system. The form factor is also a lot easier to manage and use with one hand, not to mention it has a retail price that's $300 cheaper. If you can live without the S Pen and are OK with a smaller phone, the Galaxy S20 is a phenomenal purchase. … [Read more...] about Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra review: Too big to fail
Apple may blunt that scrutiny a little bit by quietly opening up two key elements of its iOS software. Starting this fall, the company will allow you to change the default email and browser on your iPhone. Apple never mentioned the capability during the keynote, though, with the revelation coming in one of the presentation slides. Instead, Apple focused on all the new features its phones will have. … [Read more...] about Apple’s ‘walled garden’ walls will get even higher with iOS 14, iPadOS 14 and MacOS Big Sur
