Ben Heck’s Hex game: Fun with soldering

Weekly poll results: iPhone X soaks up the fan love, leaving scraps for the iPhone 8

There are two kinds of people in the world – iOS fans and Android fans. Of iOS fans, more than double the number of people want an iPhone X than an iPhone 8 or 8 Plus. Analysts saw this coming when they forecast that the X will account for half of the sales.

Our poll shows the divide is 2 to 1 instead of 1 to 1, but wanting to buy the phone and actually getting it is another matter. The issue is twofold – price and availability.

The iPhone X is the most expensive mass market phone ever and it will raise the Average Selling Price (ASP) of Apple’s lineup. Even if the number of phones it…

Aidy Bryant kills it on ‘SNL’ as Sarah Huckabee Sanders at a White House press conference

Saturday Night Live is lucky to have Aidy Bryant.

With Sean Spicer out on his ass — and Melissa McCarthy’s spot-on impersonation now a thing of the past — Bryant has stepped in on SNL as the new faux-White House press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders. And she’s perfect.

Bryant nails Sanders’ southern drawl and dry wit in this White House press conference sketch, which suggests that the IRL press secretary draws her strength from an unlikely, but totally fitting, source: Demi Lovato’s “Confident.” …

Don Jr. teaching Eric Trump about Fun Dip on ‘Saturday Night Live’ is the best ever

There’s a lot to like about this Weekend Update sketch on Saturday Night Live, but really, the best of it comes when Mikey Day and Alex Moffat trot out their always-hilarious impressions of Donald Trump’s elder sons, Don Jr. and Eric. In related news, Fun Dip is about to be popular again.

As funny as the Trump Bros are, don’t overlook the real fire in this sketch: Michael Che’s searing takedown of President Trump. I’ll let the quote speak for itself; it’s a good one.

“If you want to live-tweet Morning Joe or Cupcake Wars or whatever else you watch, fine. But indictments are important and you work for us — so go put on your baggy suit, fold your hair nice, and answer all of our questions face-to-face like the public servant that you are.” …

Set an alert: Do not miss The Farthest on PBS

I’ve made no secret that the Voyager probes’ journey through the outer Solar System was a major influence on my childhood. So I was shocked to find out that I had missed the airing of what may be the definitive story of their mission. I was fortunate enough to correct my mistake thanks to NYU’s science journalism program. For anyone else at all interested in science, NASA, space, or the human side of science, this review serves as a warning: the story will be shown one more time on November 15. Do not miss it.

The story is a documentary called The Farthest, a name that focuses on Voyager 1’s current fate as the only human-made object to have left the Solar System. But the movie follows both Voyagers from when they were just an idea struggling to get funding, through potentially mission-ending issues, and on to their status as the definitive exploration mission of the last century. And The Farthest does all that primarily through the words of the scientists who ran the mission and analyzed the data in real time as it came in.

The scientists are quirky, expressive, passionate, and fundamentally human, things that are lacking from most portrayals in popular culture. The film helps you come away with the sense that, even though nobody has seen or touched this hardware in decades, the Voyagers are fundamentally a story of human endeavor.

Hillary Clinton and epistemological collapse

How do you know that Hillary Clinton exists? I’m serious; or, at least, I’m making a point. Bear with me. Think about it. You don’t know her personally, after all. You’ve never met her. You’ve maybe been in the same room as a woman who was introduced to you as her – but probably not. So how do you know there truly is a real person named Hillary Clinton… Read More

Larry David broke so hard on ‘SNL’ he just gave up and laughed openly

Ah, the Saturday Night Live break. When shit just gets so weird on the set of the sketch comedy series that a performer — usually, but not always, the guest host — just starts laughing.

So it was with Larry David this week. The sketch itself is fine: David is a newly married rich dude whose wife — an unrecognizable Cecily Strong — is some kind of influencer in the gay club scene. But by the end of the sketch, David can’t keep up with the script’s fast-paced lingo… so he loses it.

But here’s best part: He never really recovers. For roughly the final minute of the sketch, it’s just David laughing through line after line while the other SNL cast members struggle to keep things grounded — and fail. …

Larry David angered the internet with his ill-conceived Holocaust jokes on ‘SNL’

Larry David returned to the Saturday Night Live spotlight this weekend, but things got off to a rocky start.

The Curb Your Enthusiasm comedian made some uncomfortable remarks about Jews and mounting accusations of sexual conduct by Harvey Weinstein, but he drew criticism when his stand-up monologue delved into an even thornier subject: the Holocaust.

“I’ve always been obsessed with women and I’ve often wondered, if I had grown up in Poland when Hitler came in power and was sent to a concentration camp—would I still be checking out women in the camp?” he said, near the end of his opening monologue. …

How to build one of Earth’s largest telescopes

Huge telescopes dot mountainsides around the world.

From Hawaii to Chile, scientists seek out the perfect site with fair weather and dark, clear skies to peer deeply into space, clocking the movements of distant stars, planets, and other objects far beyond what we can see with the naked eye.

Gut bacteria may make or break your chances of cancer treatment working

New, potent cancer therapies can act like daggers pressed into the hindquarters of the immune system, prodding it to lunge at any cancerous cells in the body. When the drugs work, the immune system tramples tumors into oblivion. But they don’t always work—in fact, cancer drugs can fail 60 to 70 percent of the time. The drugs might not give the immune system a sharp enough sticking in every patient. But according to a pair of new studies, it may not be the immune system that needs a swift kick—it may be the gut.

Some intestinal-dwelling bacteria appear to corral and train immune cells to fight off cancer cells—prior to any spurring from cancer immunotherapies. Without such microbial priming, the drugs may only offer a futile prod. In both studies, published this week in Science, researchers found that the cancer patients who saw no benefit from the drugs (non-responders) were the ones who lacked certain beneficial gut bugs, particularly after taking antibiotics. Meanwhile, cancer patients who did respond to the drugs had bacteria that could prompt the immune system to release chemicals that get cancer-killing immune cells—T cells—to chomp at the bit.

When the researchers transferred the gut microbes from their human cancer patients into germ-free mice with cancer, the rodents mirrored the patients’ fates. That is, mice that got gut microbes from non-responding humans also did not respond to immunotherapies. But, the mice that got microbes from responders responded. And when researchers swapped responder gut microbes into non-responding mice, the mice converted and fought back the cancer.

Kanye West finally makes his return to the stage at a Kid Cudi concert

In November 2016, Kanye West cancelled a slew of tour dates after reports surfaced that he’d been hospitalized.

On Saturday night, nearly a year after those headlines dominated the news, the Chicago native took the stage alongside longtime collaborator Kid Cudi for the first time since 2016—and people went absolutely wild.

Larry David suits up again as Bernie Sanders for Celebrity Price is Right on ‘SNL’

Look. This Saturday Night Live sketch isn’t the greatest. But it does have two high points.

The first is guest host Larry David, who revives his pitch-perfect Bernie Sanders impression (and makes lots of 2016 election jokes at Bernie’s expense).

The second is Alec Baldwin, who pops up as an even more perfect Tony Bennett. Even better, Baldwin-as-Bennett is really interested in hawking anti-diarrhea medication. When all else fails, toilet humor got your back.

It’s also hard not to chuckle when musical guest Miley Cyrus, who appears as a non-celebrity contestant alongside Alex Moffat-as-Chris Hemsworth, gets a visit from her IRL squeeze and …
