HTC U12 Plus won’t include a USB-C to headphone adapter

HTC made the U12 Plus official last week, but buried in the details of HTC’s latest flagship was an unfortunate catch: along with not having a headphone jack, the phone also won’t include a USB-C to 3.5mm adapter for using traditional wired headphones, as spotted by Android Police.

HTC isn’t leaving users completely stranded, however. The company will still include a pair of USB-C headphones in the box, and it will still sell its $ 11.99 adapter s…

Dawn of War 3 for Mac: A great game that sadly won’t be supported anymore

Warhammer 4,000: Dawn of War 3 for Mac was released on June 8, 2017.

This was yet another excellent port from Feral Interactive and also exciting news because the last Dawn of War was released a long time ago, in 2009. It’s really too bad it won’t longer be supported…

This Wood Won’t Float, But It’s Stronger Than Steel

The question of how much wood a woodchuck can chuck may need to be reevaluated — new research published today in Nature reveals a process that can create wood with a strength-to-weight ratio stronger than most metals. Harder, Better, Stronger Many of the high-performance structural materials available today have at least one major drawback. Metals like steel may be strong, but they are also heavy and environmentally damaging. Composites and polymer-based materials work around these drawbac…

Duolingo now supports Chinese, but it probably won’t help you become fluent

Duolingo today added support for Chinese and that’s a big deal for a few reasons. The language learning app has provided Spanish and German since it was in private beta back in 2011, but didn’t add Asian languages until recently — Japanese was added in May and Korean in September. That’s generally because those languages are difficult to learn and involve composing completely different curriculums.

Chinese is the most-spoken language in the world, and…
