Romney's Hateful Ticket

Jonathan Capehart, Washington Post
Mitt Romney, the presumptive Republican nominee for president, having secured the necessary 1,144 delegates last night, is playing a dangerous game.Rather than be a statesman, he refuses to forcefully condemn the birther barnstorming of Donald Trump. What the Donald is doing — flopping about in a pool of proven lies for attention’s sake — is detestable and corrosive to political discourse. To literally stand next to someone who rides a wave of racist conspiracy theories to question the legitimacy of the president is equally detestable and demonstrates a...

NASA preps black hole-hunting space telescope for launch next month

NASA preps black hole-hunting space telescope for launch next month

Scientists will soon have a new tool at their disposal in their search for black holes and a greater understanding of what NASA describes as "the most energetic and exotic objects in space." The space agency announced today that it has begun preparing its Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array -- otherwise known as NuSTAR -- for launch from Kwajalein Atoll in the central Pacific Ocean, with a liftoff planned for no earlier than June 13th. The telescope is by far the most advanced of its type to date, boasting ten times the resolution and more than 100 times the sensitivity of its predecessors, as well as a new design that relies on a complex set of 133 ultra-thin nested mirrors -- a setup NASA compares to a Russian Doll. Those interested can get a brief overview of the mission in the video after the break

Lenovo LePhone K800 launches, officially brings Medfield to China


At CES 2012, Lenovo was the first to announce a Medfield-powered smartphone: the K800. And while it was the first to be unveiled, it couldn't beat the Lava Xolo X900 to market. Lenovo's not too worried about that, however, as the K800 has arrived in China right on schedule, having originally aimed for a Q2 launch and later refining the timeframe to the end of May. The fruits of Intel's labor can be had for the grand 'ol retail price of RMB 3,299 ($524), which gets you a 1.6GHz CPU, 1GB of RAM, Android 2.3, a 4.5-inch 720p display, an 8MP rear camera and 16GB of internal storage. We haven't heard any news of the phone reaching across the Pacific, but we're sure that won't stop the most insistent of you from grabbing a unit through alternative methods, right?
