Answers in Genesis has said that a discovery relating to handwriting analysis of a text on pottery shards by soldiers in Judah close to 2,500 years ago proves that God's Word is true.
"Scholars have long disputed the level of literacy among ancient Israelites. Many believe only the educated — scribes, priests, royalty, and the bureaucracy — were literate and that the general populace was unable to read and write. But Scripture implies that literacy would be a necessity, even among the general populace," AiG's Avery Foley wrote Tuesday in an article for the Young Earth Creationist organization's website.
The discovery in question refers to findings posted in April by Israel's Tel Aviv University, in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, which indeed suggested that it was not only the elites who could read. more >>
As neither TaiG nor Pangu have successfully released a working jailbreak for iOS 9.3.1, fans who have been waiting for a jailbreak to the latest version of the mobile OS may be waiting in vain. According to a report in Ecumenical News, as Apple is already on iOS 9.3.2, a jailbreak for an older version of the OS may not likely be coming at all. As of today, there are no working jailbreaks available for the said version. New reports are however pointing to a rumored release of an iOS 9.3.2 jailbreak before Apple's WWDC in June.
According to a Mobipicker report, an iOS 9.3.2 jailbreak is already in the works and will be reportedly released before the Worldwide Developer Conference happens on June 13. As it is, Apple already has a beta version of its iOS 9.3.2 available and according to the report this is by far one of the fastest beta releases done by the company. It indicated that Apple has been working quickly to address whatever bugs and vulnerabilities the previous version of the OS had in order to release it to iOS users.
The upcoming iOS 9.3.2 is said to address the problem of the "White Screen of Death" which occurs while playing games on one's device, especially games that require Game Center integration. This was mostly observed in iPhones. Other fixes include the simultaneous use of the Low Power Mode and the Night Shift mode, as well as some minor fixes. more >>
The highly popular FPS video game franchise, "Call of Duty" is going to be making a significant change of direction in its latest installment, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. After several weeks of leaks and rumors, publisher Activision officially announced that the new game is set to be released on Nov.4 for three platforms – PC, Xbox One, and PS4.
The most interesting change in the game is that the action is heading to space, where players are going to see a significantly new setting and maybe some tweaks in gameplay. So if the setting is beyond Earth, does it mean that the enemies are no longer humans?
Studio head Dave Stohl of developer Infinity Ward said that although there are major changes, the game won't be deviating from the things that the Call of Duty series is known for. "On one hand, this game is the kind of gritty, boots-on-the-ground, visceral war story that Call of Duty is known for. On the other, its future setting takes players on a journey of epic scale and proportions, providing incredible gameplay innovations and new experiences for our fans," he said. more >>
Recent comments from the Rev. Franklin Graham might make this year's No. 13 NFL draft pick Laremy Tunsil the poster child for how personal activities can negatively impact one's professional life.
Graham blasted Tunsil on Facebook last week regarding the football player's recently resurfaced bong-smoking video, asking, "How much does it cost to act stupid? It could cost you millions — just ask Laremy Tunsil."
Tunsil, who was once considered the No. 1 overall pick in the NFL draft, tumbled down the draft list last Thursday after a video of the former Ole Miss left tackle wearing a gas mask and smoking a bong was posted to his Twitter account the day of the draft. Tunsil said his account had been hacked. more >>
There's already a buzz about Google parading a couple of fresh Nexus devices this year, which of course will have to be a lot better considering the kind of legacy the previous handsets built. But instead of commissioning the old reliable brands like Huawei and LG, Google is reuniting with the Taiwanese brand that built the Nexus One – HTC.
Several reports online revealed that Google is paying HTC to build the 2016 edition of Nexus phones, which reportedly are code named M1 and S1, although other sources say that Google is naming them as "Marlin" and "Sailfish."
There hasn't been any hardware specifications given, not even a peak at the features or images of the phones. But there's really no blaming Google for tapping the services and partnering with HTC considering the positive feedbacks the phone manufacturer received with its HTC 10. more >>
One of China's biggest electronics and gadget companies, Xiaomi, made an unexpected announcement by unveiling a smartwatch like no other, and they're calling it the "Mi Bunny." As the code name suggests, it's literally a watch designed for kids, but is it really for them?
By looking at the features, it looks more like a good gear for parents who want to improve on how they handle their kids. Although most smartwatches in the market are highlighted by health and fitness features as well as entertainment functionality, this one focuses on safe parenting instead.
One feature allows kids to make phone calls to mom and dad by simply pushing a single button, and it does not need to pair with another phone or GSM device because it has its own SIM slot. Aside from making phone calls, there's also a panic button where a notification is sent to the parents with the help of GPS. The watch is also water resistant and comes with a sufficient 300 mAh battery that can last up to six days. more >>
