This week, we grew by a phone. That's right, the long-rumored Moto X finally burst onto the scene and it is awesome. But that's not all. We saw the bestest Internet mistake, had a triumphant victory in iOS icon design, explored Henry Ford's lost utopia, and more. Check it out!
During their routine teardown procedure of Google's new Chromecast,iFixit noticed what appears to be a Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxyeaster egg that's hiding in plain sight.
Google's Nexus 7 was the best small tablet of 2012. Rather than mess with success, Google did something uncharacteristically conservative: It made little improvements here and there and left the rest mostly as is. The result?

It looks as though they've fixed it, but for a glorious 16 minutes this was the Chicago Tribune homepage. It is self-evidently wonderful, but let's still talk about just how wonderful it is.
The murky legacy of Henry Ford—who would’ve been 150 today—centers around a few familiar ideas like the assembly line and the $5 workday. Less familiar is Ford’s biggest failure: Fordlandia, a city in the rainforest that was abandoned as quickly as it was built.

This is an awesome shot of a test F-35 zipping around California's Edwards Air Force Base sent to us by a tipster. Can you imagine this buzzing by your window?
It's been no secret whatsoever that the Moto X was coming, but now it's finally here. It's the first cross-carrier hero phone out of Motorola since it was taken under Google's wing. We just spent a little while loving it up, and here are our first impressions.
Rejoice, humans of the Earth, for the ugly off-center 1 in Apple iOS 7's Calendar app icon has been at last, FIXED! It took almost two entire years of design rants after every update, but someone in Cupertino has at last listened and corrected what was a horrible design decision made by someone else who is no longer in Cupertino. iOS 7 beta 4 has a perfectly centered 1.
Heartbreak can take on a lot of physical forms. A box of unsent love letters. An engagement ring you never got to take out of your pocket. A luxury mattress your partner boned someone else on that you have to sleep on every night which you're now selling for $150 on craigslist.
