This month, architects in Amsterdam started work
Back when Pluto had some status in our solar system, a handy way to remember the names of the planets was the 'My Very Educated Mother Just Served Us Nine Pizzas' mnemonic, where the first letter of each word represented each celestial orb. But it's just confusing now that Pluto's gone, so maybe a set of planet-themed plates might be a better learning tool.

Safari for iPhone and iPad stores data about websites for a few reasons, and most boil down to convenience and faster loading times. Unfortunately, this website data can take up quite a lot of storage over time if you never clear it out. Here's how to access it and delete it:
Before beginning, it's worth saying that this can and will clear any saved login data or passwords you have stored inside Safari itself. If you've got it saved in iCloud Keychain you should be fine, since that's stored separately.
That's it. All Safari data should be deleted now. If you're more worried about site tracking than anything, make sure you block website tracking as well!
Let's face it. If you believe that Amazon can realize the awesomeness that is drone delivery, you should halfway fear a future of an overbearing police drone force monitoring us. That terrifying totalitarian future might not be as promising as Amazon's vision for drones but what does that matter to an obsessive government? They'd just abuse drones as a pervasive eye in the sky, all in the name of security.
Fingerprints, blood spatter, muddy footprints, an errant hair. Every crime scene has its fair share of evidence. But not all of it is visible to the human eye, no matter how powerful the assisting microscope or black light. Some of the most damning evidence is mere bits and bytes.
While you endure the long wait for the next season of Game of Thrones, expand this image by Studio Incandescence and get lost exploring all the killings* in the series. But beware, if you're only watching the TV series, it contains spoilers from the books.
Google has just released a stable version of Chrome OS, and while it's (sadly) not as huge as Chrome OS 32, it still comes with feature boosts for your device. Perhaps most notable is its newly added initial support for USB-connected Braille displays. Other than that, this stopgap follow-up to OS 31 tweaks the platform's looks, starting by letting you drag the Shelf (or the app dock) from the bottom to either side of the screen. The company has also moved the launcher icon to the bottom left and made it, along with the app icons and status tray, more touch friendly for Pixel users. What's more, if you use an avatar for either Chrome OS or Google+, you'll find your profile picture preferences synced between the two. Almost everyone can now download these changes, which come bundled with the usual security and performance fixes. If you own an Acer C7, an HP Chromebook 11 or an HP Pavilion Chromebook, however, you're going to have to sit this update out -- better luck next time.

As the ancient proverb goes: a next-gen console ain't no next-gen console without next-gen mobile apps. We can't remember who said that exactly, but it's impossible to forget what's built into the new Xbox One SmartGlass app. After all, Microsoft's been hyping everything you'll be able to do with that second screen for months now. In preparation for the One's launch later this week, the companion app has (unsurprisingly) landed first in the Windows Phone store. As you'd imagine, it's basically useless, but you can still download it, sign in and poke around the limited UI should you wish. We expect the new version to show up in the App and Play stores in due course, but perhaps this debut appearance will remind Sony that Windows Phone users like apps, too.
Update: It appears that Microsoft not only released the SmartGlass app for Windows Phone today, but the folks in Redmond unveiled the Windows 8.1 version as well. So now that Microsoft fans can get SmartGlass on any of their devices, the only thing remaining is to get their hands on that lust-worthy console.
