The good people at Foodbeast created a new frankenfood that tops the ramen burger in my eyes (and more importantly to my tastebuds): the pho burger. Made with deep fried rice noodle buns, Vietnamese style cole slaw and a juicy patty, it looks like a fantastic combination of the ingredients of Pho but in burger form.

An ingredient found in extra-virgin olive oil called oleocanthal has been known as a compound capable of killing a variety of human cancer cells, but how this process actually played out was not understood. Now, a team of researchers has uncovered not only how oleocanthal destroys cancer cells, but that it is able to do so while leaving healthy cells unharmed...

In a space-age game of chicken, the European Space Agency's (ESA) Rosetta probe made its closest approach to comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko last weekend. The spacecraft, which has ceased orbiting the comet due to 67P's increased activity as it approaches the Sun, came within 6 km (3.7 mi) of the surface over the Imhotep region of the larger of the comet’s two lobes, with the up close and personal maneuver taking place, appropriately enough, on Valentine's Day...

15 years ago I would've been on a stage in China Town this week with Georgia Dow and Anthony Casella demonstrating Foshan boxing to the beat of lion drums, and then meeting up with friends for "ice cream" that consisted of red bean, ice, and tofu. That's how we spent most of Chinese New Year when we were in college, and it forever bound us to the people and the culture.
These days we take to the microphone to talk about Apple, a company that's finding Greater China and Japan increasingly important parts of their business, and cities like Shenzhen integral to their manufacturing efforts. New Apple Stores are soaring to the heavens almost monthly, it feels like, as are the numbers Apple reports during their quarterly calls.
Red envelopes filled with money are the traditional gifts given for New Year — choosing a gift for someone else is often seen as presumptuous — and some of that money will no doubt contribute towards new iPhones, iPads, and Macs.
If you're just getting started with Apple and you stumbled upon this post, welcome to iMore. If you've been here for a while, thank you for sticking with us. Either way, may peace and prosperity, health and happiness be with you this year and every year.

Happy year of the goat!

Apple may soon expand Maps Connect, a tool which allows small business owners to create listings on Apple Maps, to a couple of more countries. After the service experienced some downtime earlier today, users were presented with new language options for French and German when it came back up, which could signal an expansion to countries that speak the two languages.
The change was noticed by Apple Maps Marketing earlier today:
Apple Maps Connect was down about an hour ago. I just tried it again and got the following screen which presents options to pick English, French or German as your language and to subscribe to "News and Notifications". This may mean that Maps Connect is now available for businesses in French and German-speaking countries.
Late last month, we saw Maps Connect expand outside of the U.S. for the first time, becoming available in the U.K., Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, and Singapore.
There's no official announcement from Apple on the matter yet, but the appearance of the two new language options certainly suggests a rollout is planned soon.
Thanks for the tip, Andrew!

Last week I wrote about a snail with an iron-plated shell that lives around deep-sea hydrothermal vents, where the water tops 750 degrees F and toxic chemicals swirl. They’re about as close to hell as you can get on Earth. But down in Antarctica, there’s a polar-opposite (yeesh) ecosystem of brutally low temperatures, damn near […]

On Feb. 20, 2005 Robot Chicken aired its first episode and introduced the world to its skewed version of stop-motion comedy. TV hasn't been the same since.
