Less power hungry, economical with memory and a smarter Siri - these are all promised in the ninth version of Apple's iOS mobile-device operating system, due for all iPhones from the 4S up this autumn. Here's an overview of the new functions: - Power Saving Mode: Competitors have had this for some time, but now iPhones and iPads are also getting power-saving mode.

A bird weighing just two teaspoons of sugar scares off a predator 40 times its size by imitating the "hawk alarm" of other species, scientists said Wednesday. The trick is used by the brown thornbill, one of Australia's tiniest birds, to scare off its much larger enemy, the pied currawong, they reported in Proceedings of the Royal Society B.

There was a time when a new video game adaptation was enough to make film critics gag, but the big money involved is starting to attract a new level of talent. Video game movies have an ignoble history in Hollywood, dating back to the dark days of the early 1990s when clangers like "Super Mario Bros." starring Bob Hoskins and "Street Fighter" with Jean-Claude Van Damme were stinking up the screen. But the lure of tapping into the world's estimated 1.8 billion gamers has kept drawing film-makers back for more, and the new projects seem determined to up the quality and match the success of superhero franchises.
