Quick: if you had to pick one app that had the-best-year-ever in 2016 what would you pick? Pokémon Go? Super Mario Run? Instagram?

Please, everyone: don't ever, EVER just blindly follow directions from randos you follow on Twitter.
Certain groups on the social network (read: teens) have tweeted this month to encourage followers with iPhones to give Siri a simple numerical command, "108," and wait to see what happens next.
It's presented as yet another mindless Siri trick, but it's much more serious than that. Instead of just telling a stupid joke or, as one person claimed, unlocking a mini-Biebs show, Siri will initiate a call to the nearest Emergency Services. If you're not ready for it, you might not be able to ca...more

There's been a breakthrough in the case of Jyn Erso vs. TIE fighter: the chief suspect has admitted the incident in question never took place.
You may remember the scene from multiple trailers for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Jyn walks along an aerial platform on Scarif, blaster in hand, when a TIE fighter pops up at point-blank range.
It's a profoundly arresting image that indicated a "how does she get out of that?" showdown.
But in the movie, the TIE was effectively airbrushed out; Jyn was simply walking towards a control panel that would help her upload the Death Star pl...more

It was an unconventional choice that ending up hitting all the right notes, in part because of how naturally it seemed to fit her.
