"It's a sad day for free speech," Coulter told the New York Times.

In the first six weeks of 2017, Verizon Wireless lost 398,000 on-contract wireless customers. Considering that analysts expected Verizon to add nearly 250,000 customers in the first quarter, that's dire. It's only thanks to Verizon's launch of unlimited plans that the bloodshed isn't worse. In the weeks after Verizon launched an unlimited plan, it stopped losing customers and actually gained 109,000 subscribers, bringing the net loss of customers in the first quarter to 289,000. The obvious thing to blame for Verizon's plummeting numbers is the recent wave of competition being driven by T-Mobile. The cheap unlimited T-Mobile One plan that it rolled out last year has seen T-Mobile poach...
It's hard to imagine that, after thousands of years of cataloguing every living thing we come across, humans are still discovering new animals, but when it comes to the ocean there's just so much space to cover that it's easy to miss things. Researchers led by Northeastern University professor Dan Distel just made history by unearthing the first living example of a creature that scientists have had a hard time finding for hundreds of years. It's called a Giant Shipworm, and it's absolutely bizarre. The "worms," which are actually part of the mollusk family, live inside thick, calcified tubes buried under the sea floor, allowing just two small tips of its body to be seen. The...

On Tuesday, we shared a video of a camera showdown pitting the Galaxy S8 against the iPhone 7 Plus. The results were somewhat inconclusive when it came to deciding on a winner, but it appears that the Galaxy S8 features a better camera than the iPhone 7 for certain environments and slightly worse in others. While the camera might not be the most hyped feature of the upcoming Galaxy S8, it's still a vital component for any smartphones. That's why Samsung commissioned a study to determine the twenty greatest British views, featuring photographs of gorgeous British vistas shot on the Galaxy S8. "We wanted to mark the launch of the new Samsung Galaxy S8, with its unique and groundbreaking...

Want a pair of awesome wireless earbuds from Apple that feature terrific sound and the hot new W1 wireless chip for enhanced pairing and improved range? Sure, AirPods are cool, but good luck finding them in stock anywhere other than Amazon, where you'll have to pay a premium to get them delivered anytime soon. The new BeatsX Wireless In-Ear Headphones are the next best thing. Actually, they're even better than Apple's AirPods if you run or work out at the gym, because they offer the same great sound but the rubber tips actually stay in your ears. $150 is a fair price for Apple's latest Beats buds, but you won't have to pay that much if you act fast. Amazon just put the new BeatsX Wireless...

By the time Chelsea walk out at Old Trafford on Sunday their Premier League lead may again have been cut to a slender four points. For the second weekend running, Antonio Conte's side kick off after their main pursuers Tottenham Hotspur but, unlike last Saturday when they were always odds-on to restore their advantage by beating Bournemouth, real danger lurks in the form of Manchester United - and ex-manager Jose Mourinho. Chelsea's 1-0 win was their second over United this season and although the result was much closer than the 4-0 league drubbing, the chasm that has opened between the teams was clear.

The Windows 10 Creators Update is here, and you should go download it right now. Not only does it fix bugs and security flaws, it also helps you make magical rainbows and unicorns, quite literally. But once you've downloaded and installed the update, you might notice your hard drive has filled up a few extra gigabytes. It doesn't have to be this way. A little-known fact about Windows is that when you upgrade from one version of Windows to another, it stores the data from the old version of Windows hidden on your hard drive. It's done so that if there's problems with the new version, you still have the data available to downgrade. That's great for your nervous uncle changing from Windows...

For those hoping for a 2018 Buick Regal with its engine cylinders arranged in a 'V' formation, it seems the brand will oblige with the next hopped-up GS variant.
