Bulgari Diagono Magnesium watch focuses on security

This year's BaselWorld in Switzerland has become the stage for many companies, watch makers or otherwise, to reveal their own take on the idea of smart devices on your wrist. Some have completely jumped on the smartwatch bandwagon while other cautiously remain on the periphery, like the new Swiss Horological Smartwatch group and their MotionX activity tracker platform. Jeweler Bulgari is making yet another twist, calling its concept device not a smartwatch but an "intelligent watch", one that practically keeps a safety vault on your wrist instead.

Apple’s car project possibly laid bare as shell company discovered

Will they, or won’t they? There’s plenty of intrigue surrounding Apple’s oft-rumored electric car project, which is said to be headed for a collision course with Tesla.

A new report sheds a bit more light on Apple’s alleged efforts, suggesting they’re going through a third-party to hide their endeavor.

Hillary Clinton operated email server for state business

What you’re about to read is actually really impressive. It’s also highly unorthodox, extremely suspicious, and downright sidesteps all the governmental safeguards and checks/balances in play for the security of its employees. But man, it sure is interesting. Hillary Clinton was recently found to use her personal email address for official state business while Secretary of State. Bad enough, right? A new report also details how Clinton used her own server to run this email service. At her home. See?! Pretty impressive, right?

Small-time messaging app Tiiny has been shuttered

Small-time messaging app Tiiny has been shuttered

Late last year, Tiiny was revealed as another ephemeral messaging app in a crowded space. The app was always billed as a project more than a moonshot or labor of love, which makes today’s announcement neither disappointing or sad. In a blog post via Medium, Digg founder Kevin Rose announced he and the team at North were shutting Tiiny down, saying “at the end of the day Tiiny didn’t find an audience, and the product wasn’t a big enough improvement over similar services in an already insanely crowded space.”

One-ton rodent used tusks like elephant

A paper has been produced by three researchers in which they predict the bite force of the largest rodent to have ever been discovered. Philip G.

Jurrasic World for real: new “dragon” dinosaur turns up in China

Jurrasic World for real: new “dragon” dinosaur turns up in China

At 15-meters long, Qijianglong (pronounced “CHI-jyang-lon") was not a small dinosaur. Half of its length was made up of neck, while a tiny head sat on one end and a four-legged hulk of a body sat at the other. The digging site at which this animal was found was first discovered in 2006, and only now have paleontologists gotten to a point where they're comfortable confirming the new species, long neck and head included. This creature is from the mamenchisaurids family and the sauropodomorpha (sauropod) suborder - long necked, plant-eating dinosaurs found all around the world.
