Everyone finds joy in different places.
Some people discover it in the face of a yappy dog, or a smiling infant. Others see it in the first flowers to bloom with the arrival of spring.

Rats often get a bad rep, but just look at the little guy above. He's having a great time with that banana skin. It's like a miniature rat-sized hammock — a yellow, fruity sleeping bag. Read more...More about Twitter, Uk, Viral, London, and Cute
You can now literally immerse yourself in the scent of your favourite food — in a bath.

The chain, Village Vanguard, is offering flavours like cheesy pizza, Japanese gyoza potstickers, beer, and even yakiniku grilled meat so you can smell like them after you've come out of a bath.
It's also offering flavours like cilantro and edamame soybeans. Yes, cilantro.

I recently began wearing an Apple Watch regularly. Generally I'm not a watch guy — haven't been since I gave up my calculator watch in the late '80s — but in recent years I've learned to appreciate some of the utility features of smartwatches.
I especially like the notifications, which necessitate only a glance at the wrist instead of the heavier lift — literally and figuratively — of digging my iPhone out of my pocket. First world problems, sure, but those are really what the Apple Watch (and, arguably, all consumer tech) was designed to address.

The Essential Phone, coming from the workshop of Android creator Andy Rubin, is finally out after months of teasing. And it's probably the most exciting smartphone launch in years.
The phone is a looker: Titanium on the back, an enormous screen on the front, extending all the way to the top and broken only by the phone's selfie camera. The screen actually wraps around the camera, which could be a horrible idea but for now we can only say that it looks cool.

It comes with a set of top-notch specs: Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, 2560 x 1312 pixel resolution (that's a 19:10 ratio, so different from both the LG G6 and the Samsung Galaxy S8), 4GB of RAM, a 13-megapixel dual rear camera coupled with an 8-megapixel selfie cam, a fingerprint sensor on the back, 128GB of storage, a 3,040mAh battery.

For a football fan, a penalty shootout in the play-off finals — with the chance of your team being promoted to the Premier League, no less — is about as tense as it gets.
And it's even more tense when you're not 100% sure what's going on.

There's really no way you could miss the huge blue hole in the centre of Asus' new router.
The rather aptly-named Blue Cave is the Taiwanese tech giant's latest AC2600 dual-band Wi-Fi router.

But there's more to the hole than pure aesthetic design.
Speaking to Mashable on the showfloor of the Computex technology show, an Asus spokesman explained that the antennas of the device are built into the roof, so you'll no longer have those ugly rods sticking out of your router.
Image: yvette tan/mashableThe hole is meant to separate the antennas from the motherboard, which sits at the bottom of the router. Read more...More about Wifi, Router, Asus, Computex 2017, and Tech
From the outside, McLaren's ultramodern supercar factory looks like a giant mirror in the horizon, splitting water and sky. It's an unexpected sight in the English town of Woking.
Is it any wonder that it was built by the same architects behind Apple's Campus 2? Like Apple, the sublime philosophy here is all about supreme hygiene – in shape, color and design — and an obsession for detail and minimalism.
