...if it didn't we wouldn't be here to talk about it.
how is apple able to upgrade their phones for like 5 years and Scamsung, LG and HTC cannot?
Apple is comparatively disciplined, releasing about one new phone a year, and hardware and software are under their full control.
Together, the others release dozens, and different companies share different responsibilities. Nice for consumer choice, but not so nice for support, since nobody wants to maintain a software stack nor wrestle with the politics involved in updating so many different devices.
Can anyone explain why empty space has energy?
Nope, but we have a name for it anyway: Dark Energy.
I was with you right up to this curious hieroglyph.
What does it mean?
Is it any more impressive than what Boeing or Airbus does? Or GM or BMW or
Not to diminish the work of those you mention, but yes. Yes it is.
Strictly speaking, Ripple isn't the name of the digital currency
So it's not actually a real competitor to Bitcoin. How about a look at the Wikipedia page:
It is not recommended for a user to grant trust to other parties unless the user fully understands the ramifications.
It is not recommended for a user to allow rippling unless they fully understand the ramifications.
At best, it's not competing with BC in the first place, and at worst it sounds too complex for consumers to get their heads around.
So I guess the answer to the original question is a resounding "no", but Betterage could have told you that.
...isn't Earth what happens when a gazillion "asteroids and comets" bump into each other?
Think about that the next time you read "Comets brought water to Earth" or "Asteroids created the conditions for Life."
No shit they did.
Can the space fanbois provide some sort of explanation of what's being "explored" exactly?
The capabilities of the rocket.
If there's no way to prove your idea wrong, it's not science.
I think this is by far the most pervasive misunderstanding of science that the general public hold.

Sure, not as big-budget, but quite ambitious for a small team. And they delivered.
In a few iterations the Apple Watch will be untethered from the phone, have decent storage, and a slimmer form-factor than the monstrosity that was unveiled today.
In a world of tablets, smartphones and smartwatches, dedicated music-players are starting to look rather "quaint".
There's another MIT headline further down the front-page: "MIT's Ted Postol Presents More Evidence On Iron Dome Failures"
I'm guessing timothy copy-pasted that headline then deleted everything except the first few characters, but forgot to zap the apostrophe. All to save himself the arduous task of typing "MIT".
Well, I'm just speculating, of course.
This is a tragic story, but why is this on Slashdot? This is indeed stuff that matters, but news for nerds? Not so much.
Hopefully the integrity of the site won't be compromised by the sudden outbreak of humanity.
