Exactly one year ago today, I set out to collect 314 pi-related YouTube videos in honor of Pi Day. I got to 22 before I gave up in disgust. Here is that post, untouched since March 14, 2013.
Of the seven Millenium Math Problems, each of which is worth $1 million to the person who can solve it, the Riemann hypothesis is perhaps the most difficult to crack. Reckon you've got what it takes?
It seems that the International Space Station's internal cooling system is having problems. While the astronauts are not in danger, ground teams had to move critical electrical systems over to the second loop and turn off other non-critical parts of the station.
We think that, one day, with enough computational power and knowledge, we will be able to create an accurate model of weather or the human brain or any real world object or situation, thus gaining useful insight into the past, present or future. But as Esther Inglis-Arkell explains on io9, that's impossible:
Here's a problem about guys: many of us don't wash our hands after using the restroom. It might be general grossness or everyman laziness or being too trusting your own hygiene or being too drunk or taking on a drive through mentality with a urinal but if you monitor a men's restroom, you'll see many folks skip the…
As tech makes our lives easier and easier, the little incoveniences that are left just get more glaring by contrast. Sure, I don't have to use a chamber pot but sometimes my magical pocket computer that knows practically everything gets uncomfortably warm when I'm using to to play GTA III and that's annoying.
The earliest of early adopters have now been using Windows Phone 8 for almost three weeks—and it seems that there may be a few teething problems. In particular, some users are reporting infuriating random reboots and some battery life issues.
After spending seven months in costly research, the Air Force scientific board investigating the F-22 life support system failure has turned in their conclusions. The findings: they have no idea about what's going on. The USAF's press release reads like a joke to American taxpayers.
Infomercials, Start Your Copywriting! "Text Neck" is apparently a thing now, and anyone with a smartphone and a sore neck will be ripe for the picking this holiday season!
Well, it's bleeding, yes, but the "blood" is backlight poking through around the edges of the screen, as defective LCD screens are wont to do. Ultimately, we're unsure whether or not this is a widespread issue.
Our Vote Live is a website where the Election Protection Coalition logs every complaint or problem that people report with voting, from finding their polling place to operating weird voting machines. It's fascinating to watch all the problems roll in. Already, there are almost 2,000 problems, and it isn't even…
An executive at a Mexican cellphone carrier Telcel claims that Apple has a revised iPhone 4 coming late September that fixes the annoying antenna problems everyone's seen with the original model.
Here's Apple's response to the now officially-acknowledged iPhone 4 antenna reception problems.
For the first time, Apple support technicians have pointed at a manufacturing issue as the origin of the yellow bands and spots that people are finding in their iPhone 4's displays. There's no official word from Apple yet, however.
There's a problem with the iPhone 4's Retina displays: Some screens have a yellow tint across the surface. 55 cases and counting. In some, it's a yellow band. In others, yellow spots. See the gallery. [Updated with Apple support feedback]
Previously, if you were stationed in one of the places where we have overseas Giz sites (Australia, Germany, Japan, etc.) you could use us.gizmodo.com and skip the auto-redirecting we have and still visit the US Giz site. But, ho! It's currently wonky right now, and even going to the US.giz URL forwards you to your…
Sorry to burst your warp bubble, bucko, but that text message you received the other day from a cellphone user in the year 2016 was just some stupid bug.
I'd love to tell you that the New Xbox Experience HDMI-related sound issue from November has been addressed, but that'd be a lie. More than two months and 23 pages of complaints later, it persists.
