New study says not exercising is pretty much the worst thing you can possibly do

exercise health

It’s no secret that there are a lot of things that can potentially impact your overall health. What food you eat, what habits you adopt or drop, and even how much sleep you get can have serious impacts on your wellbeing, but a new study by cardiologists reveals that of all the things you can do that might negatively impact your health, a sedentary lifestyle is the most deadly.

The research, which was published in JAMA Network Open, surveyed a whopping 122,007 patients between early 1991 and late 2014. The doctors recorded fitness levels of the individuals and then followed up to track mortality rates. The numbers were, as one of the authors of the paper put it, “extremely surprising.”

The T Rex’s tiny baby arms might have been way more useful than they seem

t rex arms

Running into a Tyrannosaurus rex in the wild would have been a truly frightening thing for just about any animal that roamed the earth between 65 million and 80 million years ago, and for an obvious reason. The mighty meat-eater was huge in size and had a mouth built to turn bones into powder. If it snagged you with its jaws you were probably going to have a bad time, but nobody was afraid of its puny little arms… or were they?

As Live Science reports, a new study presented at a recent meeting of the Society of Vertebrate Paleontology took a close look at how T. rex’s arms would have functioned, and it makes some bold predictions.

Sony says it already fixed the PS4 message bug that was crashing consoles

PS4 message bug fixed

Sony claims that the message bug that was capable of crashing PlayStation 4 console has already been addressed, just hours after news of the bug began to spread on Monday. In case you missed it, some PS4 players on Reddit this weekend discovered that receiving a specific text string through the messaging feature on the PS4 would cause their consoles to enter a crash loop that forced them to either factory reset or enter into safe mode.

Sony never officially acknowledged the existence of the bug, nor did it say anything on its blog or on Twitter about a potential fix, but the official PlayStation support account for the UK did tell one user on Monday that the company has “since fixed the issue,” while clarifying that the bug wasn’t capable of “bricking” PS4 consoles.

iPad Pro 2018

Apple later this month is expected to introduce two brand new iPad Pro models in 11-inch and 12.9-inch form factors. The official unveiling is set to take place at a special media event that may come as soon as next week. As to what we can expect, we’ve seen a slew of leaks regarding Apple’s next-gen tablets over the past few weeks, with the biggest change of course being the eradication of the home button in favor of Face ID.

With Apple’s fall event steadily approaching, the number of iPad Pro leaks has only increased over the past few days. Most recently, Twitter user CoinCoin — who already has a few solid iPhone leaks to his/her credit — confirmed that Apple’s new iPads will not feature a traditional 3.5mm headphone jack. What’s more, CoinCoin divulged some interesting information regarding the iPad’s dimensions, noting that it will measure in at just 5.9mm at its thickest point.

Google says it won’t identify women who reported sexual misconduct on ‘Sh*tty Media Men’ list

Finally, something good.

Google says it doesn’t plan to comply with a proposed subpoena that would ask the tech giant to hand over names, email addresses, and IP addresses of women who anonymously contributed to a Google Docs spreadsheet highlighting men in the media industry accused of sexual misconduct and other inappropriate professional behavior. 

The planned subpoena is outlined in a lawsuit filed this week by one of the accused on the Google doc, known as the Shitty Media Men list. Stephen Elliott filed the federal lawsuit against writer Moira Donegan, who came out as the document’s creator earlier this year. Elliott’s asking Google for the personal information of the list’s anonymous contributors ostensibly so he could sue them, too. Read more…

Just three weeks after releasing iOS 12, Apple’s latest mobile OS is already running on the majority of iPhones and iPads. According to data made available on Apple’s developer page, 53% of all iOS devices introduced over the last four years are now running the most recent iteration of iOS. When the data set is expanded to include iOS devices that were released before 2014, that adoption rate still stands at a respectable 50%.

The numbers become even more impressive when we take iOS 11 into account. As evidenced by the image below, 40% of iOS users on recent devices are still running iOS 11. When looking at the cumulative number of iOS devices, iOS 11 usage checks in at 39%. In short, 89% of all iOS devices are currently running an iteration of iOS that, at the most, is about 1-year-old.

Apple acquires Danish company with futuristic green screen technology

Apple

One of Apple’s strengths is that it doesn’t acquire companies without a mapped out strategy in mind. Every time Apple makes an acquisition, it’s because Apple has a specific idea of how to incorporate the target company’s technology into its own line of products and services. In stark contrast, some other tech giants — like Google, for example — tend to go on acquisition sprees and snatch up companies without really thinking about or expressing an end-goal. Google’s 2013 acquisition of Boston Dynamics is a prime example.

With that said, every Apple acquisition tends to be big news because it can often signal the type of features we might eventually see in future Apple products. When Apple purchased AuthenTec in 2012, for example, the company’s fingerprint authentication technology was built into the Touch ID feature that shipped on the 2013 iPhone 5s. With that said, Apple a few months ago made a rather interesting acquisition that hasn’t been made public until now.

Tesla outsold Mercedes-Benz in the US last quarter and might actually turn a profit before 2019

Model 3

Despite all of the drama surrounding Elon Musk’s tussle with the SEC, and despite Tesla’s early troubles ramping up Model 3 production, the company has slowly but steadily improved production across its entire vehicular lineup. During the recent September quarter, for example, Tesla said that it manufactured 80,142 vehicles and delivered 83,500 vehicles to customers. Speaking to how fast Tesla is growing, the company earlier this month explained: “We delivered more than 80% of the vehicles that we delivered in all of 2017, and we delivered about twice as many Model 3s as we did in all previous quarters combined.”

Demand has never been much of a problem for Tesla, and now it appears that the electric automaker is finally getting a firmer handle on supply. In fact, a new report from Atherton Research relays that Tesla during the recent third quarter outsold Mercedes-Benz in the U.S. for the first time in history. What’s more, the report adds that Tesla was just 2,000 vehicles away from outselling BMW.

drunk birds

Most of us know what it’s like to have one too many adult beverages. We tend to mess things up, fall down, and cause problems in a variety of ways. When birds get drunk, they apparently do the exact same thing, and Minnesota residents are experiencing it firsthand.

Sprint adds Voice over LTE years after everyone else

Sprint Voice over LTE support

Voice over LTE is a mature technology that allows for higher-quality voice calls over the 4G LTE protocol, rather than using the standard cellular voice system. It’s been standard issue on high-end phones on most American networks for years now, but then again, Sprint isn’t most networks.

The company has finally started a soft launch of VoLTE, with a couple of Samsung devices and 15 regions getting the feature right now. More cities and phones are being promised in the coming weeks, but it’s unclear whether it will be completely rolled out before T-Mobile formally gobbles up Sprint.

NASA has done more in the time since its inception than the administration could possibly pull together in a tribute video, so it instead decided to celebrate its anniversary with a measly 60 seconds.

This isn’t to say the video is bad, really, but let’s just say it’s an extremely modest glimpse at just a few of the most famous of NASA’s accomplishments. Check it out for yourself below.
