Venus Plus X by Theodore SturgeonCharlie Johns has been snatched from his home on 61 North 34th Street and delivered to the strange future world of Ledom. Here, violence is a vague and improbable notion. Technology has triumphed over hunger, overpopulation, pollution, even time and space. But there is a change Charlie finds even more shocking: gender is a thing of the past. Venus Plus X is Theodore Sturgeons brilliant evocation of a civilization for whom tensions between male and female and the human preoccupation with sex no longer exist.
As Charlie Johns explores Ledom and its people, he finds that the human precepts he holds dear are profane in this new world. But has Charlie learned all there is to know about this advanced society? And why are the Ledom so intent on gaining Charlies approval? Unsettling, compelling, and no less than visionary, here is science fiction at its boldest: a novel whose wisdom and lyricism make it one of the most original and insightful speculations on gender ever produced.

iPhone design: Screen size, notch and that home button
The iPhone X may be "better" on paper, but it might not be the iPhone that best fits your needs. If you're in the market for a new, big-screen iPhone, deciding which to buy -- and debating between the iPhone X and the iPhone 8 Plus -- you're probably not alone. True, the iPhone X is the slightly "better" of the two on paper. It has a sharper, larger screen and a depth-sensing front-facing camera. But while it may be the obvious pick simply because of its extra hardware goodies, that doesn't exactly mean it's the right one for you. To make sense of these two iPhones' key differences and what impact they could make on your decision, I'll walk you through the questions you should ask yourself when buying either of these two phones. It's not about finding a "winner," it's about helping you find your next iPhone.
