The HTC Droid DNA has one of the most impressive displays of any smartphone, but even that doesn't make up for some bothersome problems the device has. The Droid DNA falls into the category of jumbo-sized phones, but its 5-inch screen is different from the rest because it has 1080p full HD. It has 1,920 by 1,080 pixel resolution, and it also has a whopping 441 pixels per inch density. To put that in context, the iPhone has just a 326 ppi. Everything on this display is crisp and sharp.

Astronomers have put the known universe in a box on your computer screen - the 120 million light-years of it within our grasp, at least. With a mellifluous French-accented narration, some light piano music and sweeping computer animation, the video could become a stoner classic. It also happens to be the most detailed modern cosmography of all that is visible in the sky - and a great deal of what is not. At nearly 18 minutes long (that's less than one side of Pink Floyd's "The Dark Side of the Moon")

A UC Irvine fraternity has volunteered to suspend itself after it was blasted for a member-produced video that featured a student in blackface. Lambda Theta Delta announced Wednesday that it would cancel all major events and stop operating as a UCI-sanctioned organization until fall 2014.
