Imaginary Worlds is the slick, deep-dive podcast sci-fi and fantasy fans need to hear

There are a ton of podcasts out there, but finding the right one can be difficult. In our new column Pod Hunters, we cover what we’ve been listening to that we can’t stop thinking about. A couple of months ago, the members of my science fiction writer’s group were talking about podcasts, and one suggested a show that we had to listen to: Imaginary Worlds. After discovering and listening to an episode, she went and binge-listened to the entire run up to that point, sucked in by […]

Image: dustin drankoski/mashable By Karissa Bell2018-02-18 21:09:07 UTC It’s not just Apple feeling the effects of lackluster iPhone X sales. Samsung is also now grappling with the same problem. Since Apple relies on the Korean tech giant for the iPhone X’s expensive display panels, it is now searching for a new buyer, according to a report from Nikkei. This new development follows earlier reports that Apple was cutting production of the iPhone X after slowing sales.  The problem for Samsung, though, is that it’s proving more difficult […]

Mind over matter? Alex Hutchinson explains the role of the brain when it comes to the limits of human endurance

Once, we believed that the body was a machine, and the secret to optimal performance came from the muscles, the lungs, the heart. Then, we were told that it’s all in our head, and we just need to push through the pain. The truth is that “the brain and the body are fundamentally intertwined,” writes Alex Hutchinson, a fitness journalist (with a doctorate in physics) who competed for the Canadian national team as a runner. To understand the limits of the human body, you have to consider […]

Image: justin sullivan / Getty Images By Karissa Bell2018-02-18 19:13:40 UTC One of the best features in iOS 11 was the addition of new markup features that made it much easier to edit screenshots without having to go find them in the Photos app. Now, Google is coming out with its own take. Android already includes ways to do this, but — like so much of Android — it depends on which phone you have since it’s not an official part of the operating system.  The latest […]

Final Fantasy XV’s mobile version is a perfect introduction to the series

Square Enix has done an enormous amount of work over the last decade to turn Final Fantasy XV into more than just the latest game in the series. It’s been a spectacle: first announced as a spinoff of Final Fantasy XIII, it later rebranded as a new entry entirely. An entire event was planned around its release date reveal. Its story has been padded and polished with supplementary movies starring Game of Thrones actors and anime. And though the game launched in 2016, Square Enix continues to […]

Night in the Woods isn’t about growing up, but becoming an adult

It can be difficult to find time to finish a video game, especially if you only have a few hours a week to play. In our new biweekly column Short Play we suggest video games that can be started and finished in a weekend, and since it’s a long weekend in the US this one is a little longer than normal. Night in the Woods is the story of Mae, a 20-year-old college sophomore, returning home for the first time in almost two years after deciding to […]

The case for using the iPhone X without a case

The iPhone X, the most expensive smartphone Apple has ever made, is undeniably an aesthetic marvel, from the chrome-colored rounded corners and the reflective glass rear cover to the elliptical vertical camera module. Regardless of your thoughts on the pesky notch, the phone itself also feels fantastic to hold in your hand. It has certain weighted feel to it unlike past models, giving the gadget the feel of a high-class set of poker chips or an exuberant business card made of excessively heavy stock. The screen, stretching […]
