South Carolina prisoners are given years in solitary for using Facebook

Facebook is causing serious problems for South Carolina’s prison population. An investigation from the Electronic Frontier Foundation has found hundreds of prisoners in South Carolina that have been sentenced to solitary confinement for posting to Facebook from contraband phones. Those sentences can easily ballooned to ridiculous levels, sentencing one prisoner to the equivalent of 37 years of solitary, together with the equivalent of 74 years of lost visitation rights, for a total of 38 Facebook posts. Because of a given prisoner’s sentence, the effective length of the punishment is often much shorter, but it still stands as a stark punishment for services many outsiders take for granted.

A smartphone case maker might have made this year’s best Super Bowl ad

The Super Bowl is still two days away, but between Budweiser’s attempts to tug on your heartstrings to sell beer, and Kim Kardashian’s selfie-centrc self-parody for T-Mobile, we’ve already seen a number of the big budget ads that will air during the big game’s commercial breaks. But it’s not just the biggest brands that get to show off their most creative ads during the biggest game, as phone case maker Mophie shows.

Mophie makes cases capable of charging your smartphone, and its surprisingly good Super Bowl ad shows the end of the world. Streets flood, blizzard hit deserts, goats stand on donkeys, priests steal flatscreen TVs, and dogs lead people around by the leash. With the Earth’s atmosphere leaking into space, the camera cuts to…

Beagle 2 found 12 years after disappearing on Mars

The Beagle 2 Mars lander, lost more than a decade ago after its launch by the European Space Agency (ESA), has been spotted on the surface of the red planet. New images from the HiRise camera on NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) show that the coffee-table sized lander — which was designed to unfold “like a giant fob watch” — made it safely to the surface of the planet, but did not fully deploy.

The spacecraft was originally launched in 2003 onboard the ESA’s Mars Express orbiter, and was intended to touch down on the planet on Christmas Day. The last signal from Beagle 2 suggested that it had detached safely from the orbiter and was on its way to its landing site at Isidis Planitia, a massive impact basin near the planet’s…
