The most excruciating moments in the last leg of the gender discrimination trial against Kleiner Perkins happened Tuesday afternoon when Lynne Hermle, Kleiner’s formidable attorney, walked away from the podium to deliver parts of her summation a few feet closer to Ellen Pao. Outside the courtroom, Pao seems light-hearted, impish even. In the elevator last week, a reporter loudly kvetched about sitting through the month-long trial, and Pao piped up: "It’ll be over soon!" From the plaintiff’s table, however, Pao can be inscrutable.

Starting tomorrow, nearly everyone will be able to preorder the highly anticipated Galaxy S6.

Amazon just took center stage in the cloud storage war. On Thursday, the world's largest online storefront announced a new pricing model for its Cloud Drive service, consolidating its previous options into two new unlimited storage plans.
Ice floating along the coast of Antarctica has been melting more quickly over the past two decades, according to a study published today. The findings provide a more comprehensive perspective on how warming oceans have reduced ice volume, though it's difficult to say how soon sea levels could rise as a result.
The study, published in the journal Science, measures the thickness of Antarctica's ice shelves — floating sheets of ice that extend from glaciers out into the ocean. Using satellite radar data collected from 1994 to 2012, the authors found that ice shelves melted steadily in West Antarctica over the 18-year period, with losses accelerating by 70 percent after 2003. That’s significant because ice shelves play an important role in...

Once you get a look at the company's upcoming new smartphone, however, Oppo will become a name you won't soon forget.
Last night, Rihanna began teasing the debut single from her upcoming album — likely titled R8 — and this morning, she released super-teasey snippets of the song through the selfie video app Dubsmash. Now, the entire track, "Bitch Better Have My Money" (named after AMG's 1991 album), is available to stream.
The song has Rihanna asserting her place on top, hiatus be damned. She slides over a clattering wind-up beat, stuttering her words in that way that makes big pop songs so good for chanting while driving windows-down through your hometown. R8, which doesn't have a release date yet, will be Rihanna's first LP since 2012's Unapologetic.
