Study of decades-old earthquake data reveals mountains hundreds of kilometers underground

Back in 1994, a massive earthquake happened in Bolivia. That earthquake occurred on June 9, 1994, and registered a massive 8.2 magnitude, and was so powerful that shocks were felt as far away as Canada.

Facebook needs more than a fine to change its privacy ethics

Facebook might be setting a new world record soon but not in a very good way. Reports indicate that it is negotiating with the US Federal Trade Commission over what could be the largest fine ever levied on a technology company, breaking Google's $22.5 million in 2012.

Facebook lists and tracks users it considers security threats

Fame has its price, as many high-profile personalities can attest to. In addition to dealing with both love and hatred, there's also the matter of potential threats to their safety. That's true for both a single person and a large company, especially one that's both famous and infamous like Facebook.

LEGO Hidden Side combines AR game with physical building sets

That doesn't mean, however, that we have to limit ourselves to fun but short-lived AR stickers and non-interactive dinosaurs. LEGO, the toy company that always puts itself at the STEM forefront, is showing what else can be down using AR with its new Hidden Side play theme, a ghost-filled experience that keeps one hand on the physical and another on the virtual, literally too.

Galaxy Fit tracker seen alongside Galaxy Buds, Galaxy Watch Active

It seems that Samsung is truly retiring the Gear brand, putting all its mobile products under a single "Galaxy" name, regardless of form or operating system.

Now it seems that Samsung itself has accidentally confirmed that the Gear Fit trackers will also experience a change, but the new Galaxy Fit and Galaxy Fit e will bring more than just a new name.
