Jupiter’s moon Io is an eruptive mystery. Based on scientific models, the tiny Jovian moon’s volcanoes flare up in the “wrong” places. How could that be? Well apparently, our models didn’t account for a massive subsurface ocean of lava.
Google is kicking off I/O as we speak, and you can follow our liveblog here. There probably won’t be any wild surprises—but then again, this is Google, and we could get a little sweet, sweet moonshot action if we’re lucky.
In just a couple years, your MacBook Air or Surface Pro could look obsolete. Denizens of the future won't understand why you have so many gaping holes in your machine. Why would you need a full-size USB socket, a magnetic charging port, and a video output when you can cram them all into a single tiny plug? Because…
They keynote at Google's big developer conference is over, and in its three hours(!) we found out about AndroidTV, Android Auto, and the next big release of Android for you phone. But there was also a ton of rumored stuff that Google didn't announce. Here's what was missing, and our best guesses at why.
Google has just revealed that its popular Chromecast dongle will soon receive a sizable feature boost. What's more, the streaming device will also receive a personalized user home screen. Here's what's in store for your living room.
Meet AndroidTV: a new TV platform, like the failed Google TV. It's a brand new UI but it's the same SDK as regular Android.
At Google I/O today, the search-and-everything-else giant unveiled a new mobile tool to help your smartphone survive to the end of the day. Say hello to Project Volta.
It's been years since Google has given its Android platform as fresh a face as this. The mobile platform's new look doesn't have a name yet (lollipop?), but it's here to tie things together.
Google's biggest day of the year is here: Google I/O! And along with fancy developer seminars with enticing names like "open-source technologies from the Hadoop ecosystem as part of your Cloud toolkit," we're also going to get some Fun Announcements. Here's what we're expecting, what we're hoping for, and what'll have…
It may just be a timer countdown for now, but at noon today the video above will turn into a livestream of Google's I/O keynote. We'll be liveblogging here as well—the stream usually lags, and doesn't come with jokes—but for your full A/V experience, check the above.
Man, Jupiter's moons are a lot cooler than ours. The spacecraft New Horizons captured this gigantic exploding volcano on its moon Io, the most volcanically active body in the solar system. It seems crazy to see something so far away captured in such detail.
You might think that this image looks a little bodged together, and you'd be right to. After all, it's literally a collage of photographs obtained by Voyager I—all the way back in 1979.
This moon looks even more like it's made from green cheese than ours does, but it's not. Lame. Io, the innermost moon of Jupiter, is the most volcanically active body in our solar system because of gravitational "tides" exerted by Jupiter and its other moons. And the constantly flowing lava gives Io's surface frequent…
