Take a look at all the awesome bikes and gear at the 2018 NY motorcycle show

Once again, heritage styling was a big story, but the growth of Royal Enfield, a motorcycle company big in India, was also notable. The New York motorcycle show is one of my favorite events of the year. The 2018 installment didn't disappoint. The floor at the Javits Center on Manhattan's West Side was crammed with all manner of two-wheeled delights (as well as some three- and four-wheeled attractions)....

A very good dog dug up a 13,000-year-old fossilized mammoth tooth from its backyard

A 13,000-year-old mammoth tooth. A Labrador retriever puppy named Scout dug up a 13,000-year-old fossilized woolly mammoth tooth from its backyard in Whidbey Island, Washington. Owner Kirk Lacewell initially thought Scout just dug up a rock or piece of petrified wood, until he noticed upon further inspection that the piece looked like bone. Lacewell sent photos of the fragment to paleontologists at University of Washington’s Burke Museum, who confirmed that it's a mammoth tooth fossil.

Which photo looks better to you? On paper, and in technical comparisons, the iPhone XS ranks among the world's best smartphones when it comes to photography. But in a blind test conducted by popular YouTube tech vlogger Marques Brownlee, the iPhone XS flunked out in the first round. Crazier still, it lost against a BlackBerry smartphone.

And it certainly does that! But based on the results of a new video...
