We’ve seen plenty of iPhone 6 component leaks so far but this one is a lot more exciting than your average flex cable. Via Nowhereelse.fr, GeekBar has posted some new pictures on its Weibo page that purportedly show the iPhone 6’s A8 processor for the first time. FROM EARLIER: Leak may reveal crucial details about the iPhone 6’s A8 processor As you can see in the picture above, it looks like the A8 chip is going to be slightly bigger than the older A5 chip, which isn’t surprising since it will both pack more of a punch and be part of a larger smartphone. It’s too bad that GeekBar couldn’t compare it to a more recent chip such as the

Google and Apple never hesitate to brag about things that their platforms supposedly do better than one another but we have a hard time imagining Google bragging about beating iOS in this particular metric. UberGizmo directs our attention to a new report from Pornhub showing that more porn traffic now comes from Android phones than from iPhones. As you can see, Android phones accounted for nearly half of all porn traffic detected by Pornhub, while iPhones followed close behind at just over 40% of traffic. Predictably, the also-rans in the mobile platform wars, BlackBerry and Windows Phone, accounted for a meager portion of all porn traffic and posted percentages in the low single digits. However, we wouldn’t be shocked to see

There's no telling how Nintendo feels about the whole thing, but voice actor Charles Martinet has brought the iconic characters of Mario and Luigi to life on Instagram. Martinet has taken a liking to carrying Mario and Luigi toys around and voicing conversations between them based on what's going on in the real world. Most gamers first heard his instantly recognizable Mario voice in Super Mario 64, and he's stayed around for basically every Mario game since. Aside from Mario and Luigi, he's also voiced their evil counterparts Wario, Waluigi, and other characters.

Browsing through an Ikea catalog is basically a modern adult's version of playing make-believe, letting you imagine just how gorgeous your apartment will never be. And it turns out, an Ikea catalog is even further from reality than you may have already thought: 75 percent of its product images are now CG. The surprising fact was noted by the The Computer Graphics Society, which spoke at length with Ikea about why it's eschewing photography for digital renders. ...

By Sarah McBride SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - (This story corrects spelling of Emily Weisburst's name in second paragraph) Women venture capitalists underperform their male counterparts by some 15 percent, according to a new Harvard University study, but the performance differences have narrowed over time and in firms that employ more than a single female venture partner. “We find that female venture capitalists significantly underperform their male colleagues,” wrote Paul Gompers, Vladimir Mukharlyamov and Yuhai Xuan of Harvard and Emily Weisburst of the University of Texas at Austin in their study, “Gender Effects in Venture Capital.” They blamed the performance difference in part on a lack of mentoring by male colleagues.

Using a technology known as "selective laser melting," NASA was able to create a rocket injector — the part that shoots fuel into a rocket engine — out of just two separate components, instead of the 163 that were required using traditional manufacturing techniques. So far, NASA's tests of its 3D-printed rocket injector seem to be going well: this week, the agency announced that the injector recently survived a 6,000-degree Fahrenheit test-firing at the Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama. Watch the test for yourself in NASA's video above and it's easy to see the sky-high potential of 3D printing and other similar additive manufacturing technologies.

Maybe we should stop whining about the fact that the Galaxy S5 looks like a band-aid — things could be much worse. Redditor Vastrax reminds us of a Samsung released more than a decade ago that we’ve tried to wipe from our memories because it was so ugly that it even makes HTC’s notoriously hideous Evo 4G LTE look stylish by comparison. Yes, we’re talking about the Samsung SPH-N270, a phone whose Wikipedia page informs us was designed in close collaboration with the design team from the Matrix films as a collector’s item for fans of the film. The phone’s overall design is so antithetical to simplicity that if you shoved it in Jony Ive’s face he’d hiss at you while his

T-Mobile is going to try shaking up the wireless industry again on September 10th. There's no big stage show this time, and T-Mobile's tagline for the upcoming news is: "This time it's personal." The event's scheduled to kick off at 1PM PT / 4PM ET, and we'll be bringing you whatever announcements John Legere and Co. make to set T-Mo apart from the competition once again. In case you've forgotten, some of T-Mobile's previous "Uncarrier" initiatives have included a move away from two-year service contracts, 200MB of free tablet data each month, free international data coverage, unlimited music streaming that doesn't affect data usage, and more.
