The island in Fortnite: Battle Royale is now a snowy wonderland thanks to the Ice King event last Saturday. While it can be a little confusing figuring out where you are with snow everywhere, I think it's cool that Epic Games went all-in to give the game that full winter feeling. The snow is even more important now because we just got the new Sneaky Snowman drop in the latest update, making it easier to blend in with the scenery.Still, if you want to get that tier-100 Ice King, you're going to have to continue to complete challenges to get through more tiers of your Battle Pass.

There’s just something about this phone. From the moment I laid eyes on this thing, it just kind of made me happy. It’s small and adorable like a newborn puppy, and despite how petite it appears it photos, it looks and feels even smaller in person. And I’m not the only one that had this reaction. When I brought it into the office, people crowded around marveled. One person cooed at it, another said, “it’s perfect,” while a third remarked that this is the exact sort of thing they’d wished someone would make for years. From a crowd of tech bloggers, even I was taken aback with its reception. Size alone isn’t what makes this handset remarkable. In part what makes the device exciting is that it’s the rebirth of Palm, the same company that made big ‘ole PDAs and the ill-fated Palm Pre. Maybe more interestingly, Palm’s new phone also envisions an entirely different way of using and living with tech. For something so small, … [Read more...] about Palm’s Ultra Tiny Phone Is an Absolute Snack
Dubai Image Gallery An aerial view of Dubai's palm island. See more Dubai pictures. Karim Sahib/AFP/Getty Images You can see the flattened palms from space. Their logo-like shapes span Dubai's coastline, providing prime gulf real estate to interested millionaires. Buyers who want a little more space can even purchase their own private islet on an archipelago shaped like a map of the world. Since the 1980s, Dubai has exploded to the forefront of global business and tourism. The ruler of Dubai, Sheik Mohammed bin Rashid al Maktoum, pursues development as a way to eliminate the emirate's reliance on dwindling oil supplies. But Dubai's geographical setting limits development: It's a small desert state with a coastline only 37 miles long. High-rises and hotels gobbled up Dubai's Persian Gulf coast in the 1990s, creating a wall of buildings. In 1993, construction began on Dubai's first man-made island, the future home of the Burj Al Arab, Dubai's … [Read more...] about Why is the world’s largest artificial island in the shape of a palm tree?
Palm fruit, harvested to be sent to the palm oil mills in Bintan, Indonesia. Yuli Seperi/Getty Images You might not know what palm oil is, but chances are, without realizing it, you consume it in some form — or many different ones — each day. It's an ingredient in about half of all packaged products sold at the supermarket — from instant noodles and ice cream to pizza and packaged bread — and is also found in lipstick, soap, shampoo and detergent, as this handy chart from World Wildlife Fund (WWF) details. In other countries, it's heavily used as a biofuel for cars and trucks. Indeed, the world consumed 75.8 million tons (68.8 million metric tons) of palm oil in 2017, which amounted to more than a third of all the vegetable oils used on the planet. Palm oil's ubiquitous presence, and the world's growing consumption of it, has a lot of environmental activists deeply worried. The Union of Concerned Scientists, for example, warns that cultivation of the oil … [Read more...] about Palm Oil Is Everywhere. Here’s Why That Matters.
