Watch This Woman Climb A Skyscraper With A Vacuum Cleaner

Vacuum cleaner wielding superheroes are about to be taken a lot more seriously, and LG just made a demonstrative show of power for their newest battery.

These Could Be Google’s New Nexus Phones: 5X And 6P Photos Leak

Google’s event will take place on September 29, but that hasn’t stopped their newest Nexus devices from leaking.

There are precious few details about this guy, including when (or if) it will ever go on sale. But based on my limited time with the screen, crammed in with a hundred other people at the press event, I am very, very impressed.
