Apple ’s New $1,000 iPhone X Is Luxuriously Out of Touch
You could be forgiven for seeing the iPhone as a functional and practical acquisition. The phone, after all, has revolutionized how we take pictures, order food, sign up for an exercise class, read the news, listen to music, communicate across thousands of miles through FaceTime and wait, as if reading tea leaves, as we watch the ellipses between exchanges with a new romantic partner. With each release of a new version, Apple makes its previous technology antiquated in mere seconds, thus shaming many of us to upgrade. For millions of us, the many capabilities of the iPhone make dropping several hundred dollars to acquire o...

The First Time You Go to the ER with Suicidal Thoughts
You are 19 years old, on your computer at home, and you have been depressed for weeks, maybe even months. It has gotten really bad lately, and you are talking to your best friend online. You have been really laying it all down about how depressed you have been and how all you want to do is sleep, you wish you could stop existing, and you wish everything could just end. Suddenly, you hear a knock on the door of your apartment and it startles you. You have been isolating yourself for days, so this is a surprise. When you look out of the peep-hole, you are bewildered to see a male police officer standing outside the door. Sha...

Martin Shkreli Jailed After Offering $5,000 Bounty for Hillary Clinton ’s Hair
(NEW YORK) — Former pharmaceuticals company CEO Martin Shkreli had his bail revoked and was headed to jail Wednesday while awaiting sentencing for a securities fraud conviction. A judge heard arguments about whether the provocative online antics of Shkreli, dubbed the Pharma Bro, were bad enough to put him behind bars and decided to have him taken into custody immediately. A defense attorney had argued in court papers that Shkreli’s recent offer to pay a $5,000 bounty for securing a Hillary Clinton hair with a follicle while she’s on a book tour was merely a tasteless joke comparable to some of President ...

Republicans Pin Their Hopes on Tax Reform
President Trump and congressional Republicans are pinning their political hopes for their first year of unified GOP control of government on tax reform, but they are still a ways away from consensus. Lawmakers on Capitol Hill and officials from the White House are still split on whether to try to accomplish tax reform with just Republican votes (requiring the use of budget reconciliation in the Senate) or with Democrats through regular order, with a 60-vote threshold in the Senate. Trump is meeting with a bipartisan group of Senators Tuesday in hopes to trying to forge good will. But most of the details for the plan are fa...

In other words, it’s upgrade time, baby, and we all deserve the latest and greatest. This time around, however, Apple’s top-of-the-line iPhone will probably be more expensive than in years past.

What Your Dreams Actually Mean, According to Science

Somebody call rewrite. But dreams are vastly more complex than that, and if you’ve got a theory that explains them, have at it. The ancient Egyptians thought of dreams as simply a different form of seeing, with trained dreamers serving as seers ...

Apple Augmented Reality Could Eventually Solve the Google Glass Problem
As Apple’s next-gen iPhone looms along with the promise of vastly improved augmented reality apps (the so-called iPhone 8 or iPhone X may be revealed at a September 12 Apple event), it’s worth recalling one of the modern tech industry’s greatest debacles, Google Glass.
