If you think only human beings watch 3D movies, you're wrong. "Mantises only attack moving prey, so their 3-D doesn't need to work in still images", said Vivek Nityananda of Newcastle University, one of the authors of a study published in the journal Current Biology .
According to a report from Motherboard , the code is called "iBoot" and is responsible for ensuring your iPhone properly loads iOS when you turn your device on.

The auto caught a ride into space with SpaceX's Falcon Heavy rocket and is now in the Van Allen belt , a region of intense radiation surrounding the Earth.
The Guardian reported that the asteroid is an estimated 50ft to 130ft (15 meters to 40 meters) in size, possibly bigger than the one that exploded over Russian Federation five years ago this month.

The graphic above indicates that SpaceX has calculated the payload's orbit, and it turns out that the final engine blast propelled the Tesla farther than expected.

The problem with HTTP is that any data the web page transmits can be potentially spied on, which could expose passwords or credit card information.

With the update making its way to the S8 series, it is quite possible that the Galaxy S9 will already feature it. A video of the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge running Android Oreo has appeared online. The only news we received for that was back in December, when its test firmware was leaked. When it comes to the Galaxy S6, it is hard to say if this phone will ever receive Android 8 .0 Oreo.
