The top 12 rumors we’re hearing about Apple’s next iPhone

    Even die-hard iPhone fans have to admit that the AMOLED displays on other phones, particularly those from Samsung, look better than the LCD screens on iPhones. But if the rumors are true, iPhone fans may no longer need to make that admission, as Apple is reportedly looking to use a form of OLED display on the next iPhone. Just prepare your wallet, because OLED isn't cheap. But that's just one of the rumors we're hearing. Check out all the latest scuttlebutt surrounding Apple's next iPhone. There WILL be an S model of the iPhone 7. A Barclay's report obtained by MacRumors said Apple would skip the S model this year, which has historically followed each new phone version.

Most vitamin supplements are useless but there’s more evidence that vitamin D could be the exception

    When it comes to vitamins and minerals, more is always better, right? Not exactly. While it may be enticing to reach for that vitamin-C packed drink when feeling under the weather, your body can't actually process it all. And a balanced diet typically carries enough B, C, and E vitamins to keep your body running smoothly. But there is growing evidence that there could be one vitamin worth getting with the help of supplements: vitamin D. Though how much of this vitamin the body is actually able to use is still up for debate, it's difficult to get much vitamin D from food. Especially if a person is deficient in vitamin D, a supplement can help get to the recommended daily amount. Technically, two different vitamins D2, which mainly comes from supplements and food, and D3, wh...

There’s one quality in men that women find even more attractive than good looks

    Women’s preferences for men are more influenced by whether they are altruistic than good looking, a new study has found. To establish this scientists showed women photographs of different men accompanied by a description of how they would behave (altruistically or not) in certain situations for instance whether or not they would buy a homeless person a sandwich or help a drowning child. The results showed that women preferred altruistic men, especially when it came to long term relationships. This preference interacted directly with a preference for physical attractiveness; being both attractive and altruistic made a man more desirable than the sum of the two desirable parts. Though the ideal man would be both attractive and altruistic, the study showed that for long term ...

Donald Trump admits Sweden attack comments were based on debunked

    Donald Trump sparked no small number of raised eyebrows along with a flurry of sarcastic comments - when he suggested something ominous had happened last night in Sweden. After Mr Trump made the remarks at a rally in Florida, everyone from Sweden’s former prime minister, weighed in to point out that nothing averse had happened. What has he been smoking, pondered Carl Bildt? You look at what’s happening in Germany. You look at what’s happening last night in Sweden. Sweden, who would believe this? Sweden. They took in large numbers. They’re having problems like they never thought possible. Some smart observers suggested Mr Trump may, not for the first time, have been referring to something he had watched on Fox News. Business Times pointed to a segment on anchor Tucker Carls...
