    Samsung Galaxy S7 Camera Glass Shatters Mysteriously

    I have an S7 edge. I honestly don't see how this could physically "just" happen. I think the only way I could reproduce this type of damage would be to smash it or heat the lens up and quench it in ice water. Both would be stupid.

    If A Self-Driving Car Kills A Pedestrian, Who Is At Fault?

    Elon Musk’s Latest Plan Is To Dig Underground Tunnels To Avoid Traffic Jams

    Maybe he should concentrate on something that actually makes a difference with traffic congestion, like mass transit. I mean, 40,000 people dying on our roads every year is fun and all, but it's getting rather old.

    First UPS U.S. Delivery eBike Debuts In Portland, Oregon

    People act like it's a fucking hate crime if some motorist gets slightly inconvenienced, sometimes. It's hilarious watching people who just move here lose their minds when they realize they can't do 15 miles over the speed limit whenever they want to anymore.

    Apple Acknowledges iOS 10 Security Flaw

    Doesn't affect iCloud backups this time, so I guess there won't be a Fappening 2.0 any time soon. But I recall that actually had more to with Apple's joke of a "forgot your password?" system at the time, now that I think about it. :cry:
