Your iPhone X/8 battery could wear out in about 18 months!

If you’re an iPhone X owner like I am, then reading this headline could be troubling!

OK, first a little about the battery inside the iPhone. According to Apple, the battery ” is designed to retain up to 80 percent of its original capacity at 500 complete charge cycles,” and beyond that, the battery is considered worn and heading towards end-of-life. Some batteries can and do retain more than 80 percent charge after well over 500 recharge cycles (I have an iPhone 6 Plus with over 800 recharge cycles that’s still above the 80 percent mark), once you hit 500 recharge cycles, your battery is on borrowed time.

So what’s going on here?

It seems that Apple adding the speed and convenience of wireless and fast charging is masking the fact that newer iPhones are placing quite a heavy demand on battery life, and that the device — even the larger Plus devices — are needing to be topped up more regularly than older devices, and that this will wear out the battery even faster than we’ve seen previously.

If you upgrade every year, this isn’t going to be a problem for you, but if you’re the kind of person who likes to get a few years out of their iPhone before getting a new one, this is something that you need to think about. You either need to take measures to minimize battery usage during the day, or plan for a battery replacement down the line.

Music Video for ‘La Modelo’ Drops

Cardi B’s money moves just keep getting bigger and better. The half-Dominican, half-Trinidadian rapper, who was raised in New York City’s the Bronx, is now committed to getting more visibility for her fellow Spanish-speaking, Latino rappers.

Chicken Pizza Crust = An Abomination

Real Good Food Co. has made it easier to find chicken crust pizza. It sells miniature frozen pizzas made with this chicken “dough,” as well as microwaveable enchiladas, which substitute chicken and Parmesan for the tortilla. The box crows about “real pizza you feel good about eating,” and proudly displays labels declaring it grain-free and gluten-free, with only 4 grams of carbohydrates per serving and 25 grams of protein. If you’re avoiding nitrates, the pepperoni is uncured.

This is what a chicken pizza crust is like: Think about the inside of a chicken nugget — the spongy, beige part that could have come from one or 100 chickens. Roll it out to pizza size. Think about what it would be like without the crispy, salty, fried part of the chicken nugget, and that’s what a chicken pizza crust is like. It’s a slightly rubbery disc of meat with pizza toppings, or stuffed with Mexican red sauce and ground beef.

There are some things that do not belong on a pizza. Chicken, fish and pineapples.

18-year-old Belgian architecture student Arno Major has set up a Facebook event for ‘Mosh pit in front of the Mona Lisa’, due to happen in the Louvre on February 10 at 2.35pm local time (1.35pm GMT).

The event has over 770 attending and 4,900+ interested.

“So I just made this joke to my friend – what would happen if we start an actual mosh pit? It was just a simple joke and then we instantly had the idea to make a Facebook event because we thought art can be less static too.
