Trump travel ban: Hawaii files first legal challenge

It will bar entry of citizens of Iran, Libya, Syria, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen for 90 days. Iraq, which was included in the first ban, has been taken off the list.

"Nothing of substance has changed: There is the same blanket ban on entry from Muslim-majority countries (minus one)," Hawaii Attorney General Doug Chin said of the new order.

The previous order, which was blocked by a federal court, sparked confusion at airports and mass protests.

A timeline of a historic Oscars blunder

But what exactly happened that led to that now-infamous moment where "La La Land" was mistakenly announced as best picture at the Academy Awards?

Apple Names its New Campus Auditorium 'Steve Jobs Theater'

Apple today announced that the 1,000-seat auditorium at its new Apple Park campus will be named the "Steve Jobs Theater" in memory of the company's late co-founder, who would have turned 62 years old on February 24. Steve Jobs Theater, a 20-foot-tall glass cylinder with the world's largest freestanding carbon-fiber roof, is situated atop a hill at one of the highest points of the 175-acre campus, overlooking meadows and the main building.

World's smallest Camera

Think your webcam is small? Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute in Germany have developed a camera that's no larger than a grain of salt. The "microcamera" (shown below next to a syringe) has the potential to re-invent medical cameras used to navigate surgeries as well as some aspects of cars and consumer electronics.

"At 1x1x1 millimeters, this camera is as small as coarsely ground grain of salt—the smallest camera that we are aware of," Stephan Voltz, CEO of image-sensor develo

Scientists Named This Spider After the Sorting Hat

Don't cast an Arania Exumai spell on this little critter. Researchers in India discovered a new species of spider and chose to name it Eriovixia gryffindori, paying homage to Godric Gryffindor, a character in the "Harry Potter" series. The spider was so named because it resembles the Sorting Hat, a magical object in "Potter" lore that is placed on each new student at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry to determine the house they will represent during their tenu

'Tree Man' From Bangladesh Can See His Hands After a Year and 16 Surgeries

There are many rare and strange diseases in the world, but perhaps none quite so bizarre as a condition that can makes its victim resemble a tree. Abul Bajandar, a 27-year-old from Bangladesh, was dubbed "Tree Man" by some because of his symptoms from epidermodysplasia verruciformis. The rare genetic disorder involves a high susceptibility to infections with certain types of human papillomavirus, or HPV, and a likelihood of developing skin tumors. Bajandar is reportedl

Samsung Shoots for the Stars After Galaxy Note 7 Disaster

Only in the high-stakes world of smartphones could something that costs roughly $40 turn into a headache worth $5.3 billion.

Yet Samsung Electronics makes far more
