Janet Jackson wants you to know that her love is unbreakable

The singer recently released a new single, which shares a name with her upcoming album. Though the track starts off slow, with retrospective lyrics like “I lived through my mistakes/It’s just a part of growing,” it eventually builds into a dance-worthy jam reminiscent of Jackson’s earlier work

The song is now available for pre-order and will on Jackson’s new album, which is set for an Oct. 2 release

Still want The Ram? Roll the dice for Destiny’s most sought-after helmet

Every Friday is a holiday when you’re a Destiny fan.

That’s when Xur, Agent of the Nine, appears in a random part of the game’s social spaces to peddle his rare weapons and armor. As long as you have enough Strange Coins, a rare currency that can be earned by completing Weekly Heroic Strikes (and from random loot drops), Xur has the goods for you.

Xur deals in Destiny‘s so-called “exotic” gear. In a game ruled by random loot drops from virtually any scenario, exotics are the most sought-after of them all. They’re also the only class of gear in the game with usage restrictions; namely, you can only have one exotic armor piece and one exotic weapon equipped at any given moment. Read more…

Stephen Colbert completed the last of several test shows Thursday night at New York’s Ed Sullivan Theater. Since August 27, the comedian has been performing mock telecasts for live audiences in preparation for Tuesday’s premiere of Late Show with Stephen Colbert.

While the shows won’t be broadcast, they still proceeded with all the bustle and flair that accompany one-take, quick-turnaround productions.

Colbert’s warm-up comedian, Paul Mecurio, hyped the crowd, mostly by asking mundane questions and riffing off of their responses. The band, led by 28-year-old multi-instrumentalist Jon Batiste, played through commercial breaks. And the host’s hair and makeup crew descended on him at nearly every opportunity — especially after he covered himself in cookies. Read more…

Quick, what’s your No. 1 qualm about smartphones? Chances are, you said “battery life.” Most smartphones today, even high-end ones, barely last a day of heavy use.

Apple is looking to fix that problem with a new patent, filed in March and published Sept. 3, that describes a “fuel cell system for a portable computing device.”

The patent envisions a system consisting of a fuel cell, which converts fuel to electrical power, an interface to the portable computing device (e.g. smartphone) and a controller that monitors the state of the fuel cell and controls it Read more…

Warning: This post contains garden-variety spoilers as well as possible extreme spoilers.

As of Saturday, the return of Doctor Who is a mere two weeks away — and there’s still so much we don’t know about it. Most episodes in the series’ forthcoming ninth season don’t even have official titles, let alone descriptions. Ten years after the show rebooted to worldwide acclaim, mischievous showrunner Steven Moffat seems to be keeping its secrets locked up tighter than ever.

Or is he? Moffat is secretive, but not the same way J.J. Abrams is secretive about Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Abrams is obsessive about keeping as much information about the movie as possible under wraps; Moffat is bubbling over with ideas and clever turns of phrase. Not for nothing is he also the man behind Sherlock — he can’t resist dropping clues and teases and occasional misdirections. Read more…

Science Teacher Arrested After Crashing Drone At US Open

An anonymous reader writes: We all had that science teacher growing up — the one who took his classroom experiments a little too far. The one with the potato cannon. The one who made you wonder how he didn’t get into trouble in his spare time. Well, it’s finally happened for one science teacher from New York City. The 26-year-old man was arrested last night after he crashed a drone into some empty seats at the U.S. Open. He was charged with reckless endangerment, reckless operation of a drone, and operating a drone in a New York City public park outside a prescribed area for doing so. Nobody was injured, but the drone did fly through the arena while a pair of tennis players were in the middle of a match. The game was briefly interrupted when the drone crashed.
