June 23, 2017 12:35 AM Confederations Cup: Australia brace for post-Tim Cahill era, but Socceroos need only a few tweaks

Plenty of eyes have been drawn to the back of Australia's steadily building side — a shift in formation and shipping nine goals in three games will probably do that. But perhaps the other end is now of more concern to Ange Postecoglou as he pushes ahead with his three-at-the-back revolution. The post-Tim Cahill era seems to have arrived and, just as we all feared 45

June 20, 2017 11:08 PM Review: In 'The Last Knight,' round 5 for the Transformers

A concussed serenity sets in somewhere in the middle of the ceaseless ballet of metal and machismo in Michael Bay's "Transformers: The Last Knight." Freed of concerns like plausibility or story, you can simply gape in wonder at the ruthlessly thunderous images in front of you. By the time you've scraped yourself off the floor after all 149 minutes of the 3-D "The Last Knight 66

June 16, 2017 6:39 AM Just like knotted-up headphones: Entangled photons stay entwined over record distance

Literally spooky action at a distance Pairs of entangled photons created on a satellite orbiting Earth have survived the long, perilous trip from space to ground stations. Crucially, they are still linked despite being picked up by receivers over 1,200km (745mi) apart – the longest link ever seen before. “This is a scientific breakthrough,” says Rupert 57

June 14, 2017 8:02 AM This is the new Jaguar XF Sportbrake

Jag proves that practicality can be stylish with a bootiful new estate to take on BMW and Mercedes Jaguar has teased us relentlessly over the last few months about a big-booted XF. First, it squiggled an elongate XF’s silhouette on Wimbledon’s Centre Court (Jags do a bit of official duty at Wimbledon each year), then it was photographed from a giant’s 28

June 11, 2017 1:30 PM Need For Speed: Payback Threads the Needle Between Burnout And Rivals

Oh, wow. Need for Speed is good again. When Ghost Games rebooted Need for Speed in 2015, the studio's heart was in the right place, but the final product was simply not up to snuff. It was a drift-heavy racer focused on aftermarket custom cars trapped perenially in the twilight hours. The concept was grand, a unique way to bring Need For Speed back to promience 63

June 9, 2017 8:17 PM NZ still trying to fill the shoes of 2015 World Cup heroes

The brevity of the Champions Trophy can make assessment of a team's fortunes difficult, and potentially a little unfair, especially when the weather has intervened. New Zealand played down any frustration after being denied a likely victory over Australia. Who knows whether it actually did knock the wind out of their sails. Ultimately, however, in the two matches 63

June 8, 2017 5:32 PM The Strange, Complicated, Feminist History of Wonder Woman’s Origin Story

Circling the mug I drink from every day are versions of Wonder Woman’s iconic costumes from her 76-year history. There’s the character at the very beginning, created by William Moulton Marston and drawn by Harry G. Peter in 1941. She’s mid-step as the blue skirt dotted with white stars billows around her. The color scheme and main accoutrements mostly 60

June 7, 2017 5:00 PM Earliest Ever Homo Sapiens Discovered in Morocco Forces Major Rethink of Human Evolution

The earliest Homo Sapien fossils ever found have been unearthed at a site in Morocco, northwest Africa—far away from the “cradle of humanity” of south and east Africa we tend to associate with the birthplace of our species. At the cave site of Jebel Irhoud, researchers found the fossil remains of five individuals dating back 300,000 years. They were found 61

June 6, 2017 8:56 AM Apple still loves you, pro users, but that love will cost you

A solid chunk of Apple's WWDC opening keynote on Monday felt like a love letter to professional users. You know, the designers, illustrators, music producers, and similar demanding customers who lovingly cherished their Macintosh computers when the general populace only had a vague idea of what Apple is. This was a long overdue, important move from Apple 48

June 6, 2017 8:13 AM Could Wonder Woman Whip Up an Oscar?

Hello from Los Angeles, where we’re debating Wonder Woman’s Oscar prospects, campaigning our Emmy-loving hearts out, and getting advice from Carl Reiner. I know, I know, I know. It’s a movie about a character who saves the day using magic bracelets. And it’s only June. And no one pronounces Gal Gadot right (the “T” is not silent, people. It’s like “tote,” not “Godot 81
