Hey, good morning! You look fabulous.

We're a step closer to a version of iOS that tells you when your battery is dying, and Burger King has inserted itself into the net neutrality debate. Oh, and Miitomo's time is almost up.


A theoretical step towards human cloning.Scientists clone monkeys for the first time

Move over Dolly. The first ever successful primate clone is here. Chinese scientists were able to clone a macaque monkey fetus twice, producing sister monkeys Hua Hua and Zhong Zhong. In theory, this makes human cloning more realistic, given the genetic similarities between us and them: monkeys and our own species. However, that's unlikely to happen any time soon, if at all. You don't need me to explain the ethical ramifications of Xeroxing humans -- but there's plenty of 'em.


The tech titan teases its 'reimagined camera' in its invite.Samsung will unveil the Galaxy S9 on February 25th

It's almost that time again. Samsung's next flagship is setting sail, and it's bound for MWC. No standalone event, but certain to dominate the world's biggest mobile-tech conference.

CamSoda, Lovense and RealDoll have teamed up to create VIRP, a system offering Virtual Intercourse with Real People. Put simply, it's much like the teledildonic setups currently used by cam performers, albeit with a big latex doll. Sexual interactions with real performers are digitized then broadcast to erotic hardware that's now part of a sex doll. CamSoda connects users with a mobile VR headset and the gear to a performer with the compatible vibrator.
