Here’s How Much You’ll Save With an Apple-Refurbished iPhone XS

Apple now sells refurbished iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max smartphones through its online store and at certified retailers. This is good news for anyone who wants to upgrade from an iPhone 8 or older, but might not want to pay full price for an unlocked XS or XS Max (or or make the full jump to an iPhone 11). The XS and XS Max are barely two years old, and their tech is still plenty fast, so they’ll still be solid upgrades. The real question, of course, is how much can you save on a refurbished iPhone XS or XS Max you buy directly from Apple. Exact final pricing depends on the model and configuration you go for, but all iPhone XS models appear to be $200 cheaper than buying new, while you’ll save around $250 for an iPhone XS Max. The highest prices you can expect to pay for the 512GB models o

How to watch the State of the Union

On Tuesday, President Trump is delivering his third State of the Union address to Congress. The annual address by the president to legislators is included in the Constitution, which states that the president “shall from time to time give to the Congress Information of the State of the Union, and recommend to their Consideration such measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient.” The president is giving the address at an unusually tumultuous time in his tenure; he has been impeached by the House of Representatives, with the Senate trial expected to conclude Wednesday. And Democrats are still awaiting results of the Iowa caucuses after technical difficulties prompted delays across the state. HOW DO I WATCH? There are a number of ways you’ll be able to watch the SOTU tonight, but you...

Watch a world map filmed through a water droplet in extreme slow motion

Want to transform your boring, 2D world map into a miniature 3D model of the globe? Well, we've got good news and bad news. It can be done, but the bad news is you'll need a very expensive camera capable of filming in 12,500fps. The good news? You can watch The Slow Mo Guys do it all for you. In the video above, Dan drips water into a full glass and films the resulting droplet as it bounces in front of a large world map. The final effect — when he's tinkered a bit with the settings — is a mesmerising 3D globe in a quivering ball of water. This deepfake of Robert Downey Jr. and Tom Holland in 'Back to the Future' is unreal John Oliver and Stephen Colbert improvising fake movie plots deserves a show of its own Seth Meyers pokes fun at Trump's weird obsession with badgers Netflix's 'Stran...
