Earth is having its second-warmest year to date, and it's not over yet

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Thu, 10/19/2017 - 19:13

Planet Earth has had its second-warmest year so far, and in the end, 2017 may wind up being the third-warmest year on record, ranking just behind behind 2016 and 2015. This year is also headed for the warmest year to occur without any El Niño or La Niña event in the tropical Pacific Ocean.

El Niño and La Niña events influence global average surface temperatures. El Niño in particular is well-known to boost global average temperatures on top of the long-term warming due to human emissions of greenhouse gases. This is what helped vault 2015 and 2016 to the top of the record warm years list, and this year's lack of an El Niño event could keep 2017 at number three.  Read more...

What the inside of Google's Pixel 2 XL looks like, including those weird squeeze sensors

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Thu, 10/19/2017 - 19:07

In a time when prying a smartphone open (without destroying it) is about as easy as cracking a safe, Google's Pixel 2 XL is a welcome surprise. 

That's the main conclusion I get from iFixit's typically thorough teardown of the phone that's just begun to ship to buyers.

Opening the phone up will require some specialized equipment, but at least there's no need to heat it up. And once you remove the display, most components are fairly easy to remove. 

Not all of them, though: The battery is pretty hard to extract, according to iFixit.  Read more...

B&W PX headphones will let you enjoy music in total peace

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Thu, 10/19/2017 - 18:07

Over the past couple of years, British hi-fi company Bowers & Wilkins has become quite serious about headphones. With its latest model, the PX, the company became a serious contender in a hot niche: Wireless, noise-cancelling headphones. 

B&W replaced its P7 Wireless model with the new PX in early October. I've had about 10 days to test them out. In many areas, the PX are among the best in class, but minor nuisances keep them from being perfect.
