1600 Daily is an official newsletter from the White House. It includes important information about the goings-on of the president, including his meeting schedule for the day and upcoming policy initiatives. And, at the very bottom, it includes positive coverage from the media.
George Orwell’s dystopian classic 1984 occupied the number one spot on Amazon’s best-selling books list yesterday, where it remains today. A cautionary tale about a brutal, amoral dictator has evidently felt relevant to people lately. But as of today, Amazon—the world’s largest bookseller—is unable to keep up with…
Whoops. The latest software update for the Apple Watch bricked the device for some users. Even worse? It looks like the only way to really fix the problem is to return the Apple Watch to the Apple Store.
Here’s how the flying sausage gets made.
Bad idea: trying to use a crane to lift a water tank before checking if it’s empty or not. You can see the crane’s arm begin to buckle under the weight of the tank and then watch it totally collapse as it drops the tank onto the side of the building and flips itself off the ground.
When you’re as big as this cruise ship—and it’s really big at 964 feet long, 105 feet wide, and 91,000 tons—it can be hard to stop. So you have to make sure you slow down in time or you’ll destroy things because once again, you’re a really big ship. This cruise ship, the Celebrity Infinity, didn’t stop in time and…
Radiohead fans have been reeling in anticipation of the band’s next album A Moon Shaped Pool, their first since 2011. Apparently, Google was as well, as the album appeared early on Google Play.
The patent for the Wright Brothers’ “flying machine,” the invention that gave birth to modern aviation as we know it, was returned to the National Archives earlier this week. What’s strange is that it was never missing in the first place.

Think all your data is safe and sound in The Cloud? Maybe you shouldn't be so sure. Yesterday, a system administrator at a cloud service data center accidentally rebooted every single server at once by accident. It's a handy reminder that you're only one idiot away from total data annihilation.
Thanks to what is either the biggest episode of I Didn't Know I Was Pregnant ever or an entirely different kind of accident, the folks over at Shutterfly have had a very busy morning. And you would, too, if you'd just congratulated hundreds of strangers on their nonexistent babies.
Thank god for security cameras. Otherwise, we might never have been able to bear witness to this incredible scene of a FedEx delivery gone horribly wrong.
Someone over in the production department at Chicago's WGN news station is apparently learning about internet best practices the hard way today. This very unlucky employee managed to get their little Pornhub Mobile habit splashed all over the local news—and, naturally, the internet took notice.
Back in 2007, scientists found evidence of our planet's first continents in the form of 4.3 billion-year-old diamonds—old as the very Earth itself. And these diamonds were finally going to give us the insight into the evolution of Earth's crust that we've been searching for. Now, six years later, there's just one…
London made headlines this week for a uniquely modern phenomenon; the city's newest skyscraper is reflecting the sun into an insanely powerful “death ray” that can start fires and fry eggs. Now, the building's architect has spoken out: "We made a lot of mistakes with this building, and we will take care of it."
Well, that's not supposed to happen. A SpaceX rocket exploded during a test flight in Texas earlier today. This was the second test for the three engine version of SpaceX's reusable Falcon 9 rocket. There were no injuries.
Everybody could use some good news on days and centuries like this one, so it was welcome indeed when a very cute cat greeted readers of the Chicago Tribune website for a few glorious minutes today. Why not make every day Caturday? Because American Business hates fun.
