2018 needs to be the year of private spaceflight companies fulfilling their past promises

It's time for private spaceflight to start making good on its promises. And in 2018, hopefully it will do just that. From SpaceX's long-promised first flight of the Falcon Heavy rocket to NASA's plan to contract private companies to deliver astronauts to the International Space Station, 2018 should be the year when spaceflight companies start meeting many of their long-touted goals.  "I'm looking forward to a lot of past promises becoming r...

Heavens AI is named Janet, and she's way smarter than Alexa

Spoiler alert: This post contains spoilers regarding Janet from The Good Place, but it avoids other big plot points. In heaven, everyone shares an omniscient personal assistant named Janet. At least that’s the case in the hit NBC show The Good Place, which follows the journey of a woman who mistakenly ends up on the wrong side of the afterlife.  Janet, played by D'Arcy Carden, is reminiscent of the digital assistants we have today and has t...

Mitt Romney changed his location on Twitter, and that's bad news for Donald Trump

Image: Getty Images Normally, changing the location in your Twitter bio is no big deal.  But this is different. Mitt Romney changed his location from "Massachusetts" to "Holladay, Utah" on the same day that Utah Sen. Orrin Hatch announced he would retire at the end of the year, according to Bloomberg reporter Sahil Kapur. Why should we care?

That's hot. Image: Gustavo Caballero/Getty Images for Photo Butler As 2017 fizzled and faded away to all of our great relief, Paris Hilton had one final parting message. One that might just make you choke on your champagne.  True to Paris form, the tweet began with a bit of a tease: "Before 2017 ends I would like to say..."

My favorite Twitter account is a bot

Image: NurPhoto via Getty Images Human Twitter accounts serve their purpose, but I prefer tweets from bots. Research suggests there are now some 30 million tweeting bots — though this might be a low estimate. Some of these bots provide weather updates, make stock recommendations, or attempt to subvert democracy.  I, however, like bots that aren't necessarily so useful nor ambitious. I look forward to their musings because their primary dire...

A mysterious white truck coincidentally blocked the media's view of Trump's golf game

Image: AP/REX/Shutterstock While Donald Trump relaxes at the end of a year in which nothing interesting happened at all, he's spent some (more) time golfing down at his Mar-A-Lago resort. But it seems he's trying his best to get a little privacy from the prying eyes of the media.
