The biggest problem with the iPhone X (AAPL)

The iPhone X has a new screen size and shape. Some apps haven't updated for the new screen yet. Many that have been updated still look awkward.

As a device, Apple's new iPhone X is a home run. Using apps on it, though, can be another story.

Thanks to the size and shape of the smartphone's screen, which are different than all previous iPhones, you'll have to deal with some quirkiness using particular apps on it. Many apps haven't been updated for the new screen, and those that have can look a bit awkward.

In particular, app developers seem to be having trouble figuring out how to work around the virtual home bar that the iPhone X uses instead of a physical home button and the so-called notch at the top of its screen that houses its front cameras and facial-recognition sensors. It's going to take time for developers figure out how to redesign their apps for the new phone.

The best moment in the new Mario game is an incredible homage to a gaming classic

Few games are as delightful and downright joyous as "Super Mario Odyssey," the new Mario blockbuster on Nintendo's Switch console.

It's a great game unto itself, and it's a game that celebrates Nintendo's long history. Look no further than "New Donk City," one of the game's many massive open worlds, for proof of this duality.

And it's here, in New Donk City, that I experienced the most incredible moment of "Super Mario Odyssey."

WARNING: This piece speaks in detail about "Super Mario Odyssey," and contains spoilers. It's clear from the name of the city, and the endless references to Donkey Kong, that he must be somewhere. Right?

8 reasons you should buy an iPhone 8 instead of an iPhone X (AAPL)

Apple announced three new iPhones this year: the iPhone 8, the iPhone 8 Plus, and the high-end iPhone X.

Those three phones start at $699, $799, and $999, respectively.

The most expensive iPhone model this year, the iPhone X, in many ways represents the future of the iPhone.

That said, there are several reasons it's worth considering an iPhone 8 model instead of the iPhone X:

1. The iPhone X is more expensive than the iPhone 8.

This might be the most important factor for many people.

The iPhone 8 starts at $700, while the larger iPhone 8 Plus starts at $800.

The iPhone X, on the other hand, starts at $1,000.

It's simple math: You can save at least $200 by going with an iPhone 8, which, keep in mind, is still a brand-new phone from Apple.

2. The iPhone 8 and the 8 Plus are powered by the same brains as the iPhone X.

Tesla is taking the edge off its cars' insane acceleration with a new software update (TSLA)

"Chill" mode reduces the snappiness of Tesla's signature quick acceleration. The new mode is part of the carmaker's latest software update. The update went out this weekend.

"Ludicrous" mode is one of those near-mythical Tesla features. An improvement on "Insane" mode — which was already quite fast — Ludicrous enables the top-end Model S P100D sedan to outrun the world's fastest supercars on a drag strip.

If a 0-60 mph time of 2.3 seconds is your bag, you will love Ludicrous mode. Many people who have heard about Teslas but have never ridden in one immediately want to know about Ludicrous. The feature's reputation precedes it.

However, as


When Sheryl Sandberg first moved to Silicon Valley, Google's Eric Schmidt gave her advice she still uses today

Sheryl Sandberg said she was risk adverse when she moved to Silicon Valley.  She almost turned down a job at Google, before realizing that she had a tremendous opportunity in front of her. "When you're offered a seat on a rocketship you don't ask, 'What seat?' You just get on," she explained.
