Since 1990, doctors have been regularly treating cancer patients using proton beams, which work similarly to radiation. Proton therapy is more precise, however, causing less harm to healthy surrounding tissues.

Google has been ordered by the Tokyo District Court to stop its autocomplete search feature because a man is claiming that it's an invasion of privacy. According to the court, the man has been fired from his job because Google autocompletes his name with crimes he has never committed.
There’s something so unbelievably cringe-worthy about watching something new and shiny like the PS Vita smashing into cold, hard tarmac; even dropping things onto carpet makes my heart skip a beat.
