Apple University of Plymouth/YouTube Generally when someone says smoothie, I think banana. But two scientists at the University of Plymouth in the UK think a little differently. They think “iPhone”.To encourage greater recycling rates to better appreciate exactly what materials go in to producing the handheld supercomputers we slip into our pockets every day, two geologists at the University of Plymouth have stuck an iPhone into a blender, pulverized it to dust and then chemically analyzed its composition.Smartphones have become so ubiquitous it’s kind of hard to imagine a world without them. We take them for granted. They’re just there. But of course, it takes a whole lot of energy to build one — and plenty of mining.By blending up the iPhone (without the battery!) and mixing it with an oxidizer at around 500 degrees Celsius (approx. 932 degrees Fahrenheit), the researchers were able to find exactly what the iPhone was composed of. They noted a wide range of elements, including the usual suspects of iron, nickel and silicon, but surprisingly they also found around 90 milligrams of silver, 900mg of tungsten and 36mg of gold.”This means that concentration-wise, a phone has 100 times more gold – or 10 times more tungsten – than a mineral resource geologists would call ‘high-grade’,” wrote Alan Williams, the media and communications officer at the University of Plymouth.The team also produced a video of their exploits, where you can see the iPhone getting destroyed by spinning blades.

In September 2018, Apple committed to using more recyclables in their iPhones, in addition to moving to renewable energy sources to power their manufacturing. In January, Samsung committed to replacing its plastic packaging with sustainable materials and in its US, Chinese and European facilities it has pledged it will switch to 100 percent renewable energy by 2020. Of course, this is not the first time the iPhone has met death by blender. The popular YouTube channel “Will It Blend?” first threw an iPhone into a blender some 12 years ago, racking up an impressive 12 million views. That video, below, grinds the original iPhone down to a fine dust. Notably, the researchers used the same blender to pulverize their own test smartphone, except this time the analysis was a little more refined. Apple iPhone XS If watching a perfectly usable smartphone being smashed to pieces isn’t your thing, maybe you’ll enjoy seeing Jar Jar Binks gets obliterated instead. And if all of this has you wondering about sorting yourself out with a shiny new blender, well CNET has you covered there, too. You can check out our best blender recommendations for 2019.

Fiction was almost lost from Indian publishing at about this time last year. With about three non-fiction titles releasing for every novel, it was clear who ruled the roost in 2016 – just as it did in 2015. In 2017, however, book lovers had a lot to chew upon as some really strong novels made their mark both in the market and among readers. Their numbers again may have been fewer than non-fiction, but it was the utter magic of some strong novels that stole the show. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfCall it the return of Arundhati Roy or the magic of Jeet Thayil, but most readers would agree that 2017 has been a fantastic year for Indian publishing when one looks at the fiction space.Poulomi Chatterjee, the dynamic Editor-in-Chief and Publisher at Hachette India, agreed that 2017 was a good year for fiction in Indian publishing but also highlighted that non-fiction continued to rule the market. Subroto Bagchi’s “Sell”, Muhammad Yunus’ “A World of Three Zeros”, Alan Rosling’s “Boom Country” and Ankit Lal’s “India Social” were among the better-selling books from Hachette India this year. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsive”The year 2017 has seen a good mix of releases across genres from all publishers in India. While non-fiction categories have remained the better-selling ones, there have certainly been strong fiction titles that have found their readership and made their mark. Publishers will always strive to publish strong fiction because this, after all, is the soul of a publishing list,” Chatterjee told in an interview.She elaborated that on the “great fiction list across a range of genres” that Hachette published this year are Pradeep Sebastian’s dream of a book on books, “The Book Hunters of Katpadi”; Arunava Sinha’s excellent translation of Moti Nandy’s short stories “Kick-Off”; Sanjay Bahadur’s kick-ass military thriller “Bite of the Black Dog”; Komal Bhanver’s “The Mauryan”, featuring the story of a young Ashoka; and Swati Kaushal’s delightful year-end read, “A Few Good Friends”. “And that’s just a few – there’s much more fiction to come next year, all of it exciting,” Chatterjee added.Having published some of the most talked-about literary novels in 2017 like “The Ministry of Utmost Happiness” by Arundhati Roy, “Exit West” by Mohsin Hamid, “The Golden House” by Salman Rushdie, “A State of Freedom” by Neel Mukherjee, “A Life of Adventure and Delight” by Akhil Sharma and “We That Are Young” by Preti Taneja, Penguin Random House India Editor-in-Chief, Meru Gokhale, said that 2017 was “the year of literary fiction” for his company.”Each of these books won critical acclaim and pretty much all of them were seen on award listings and bestseller charts. Above and beyond all of these quantifiable measures, what these books did was to capture the imagination in a year that saw tumultuous political change across the globe.””I think every publisher in India will agree that, in times like these, of alternative truths and cultural shifts, fiction – at least good fiction – grants us insight and escape, a way of understanding our dark new age, and an unapologetically provocative worldview,” Gokhale told.While most publishers agreed that 2017 was a good year for Indian fiction, Udayan Mitra, Publisher – Literary, Harper Collins India, pointed out that Indian fiction has been really strong over the past few years. He, however, agreed that there were some strong novels in 2017.”I think it’s been a great year for literary publishing – we’ve seen some very good books being published, and more are on their way. I wouldn’t say there was any need to reclaim fiction as such, since Indian literary fiction has been really strong over the past several years. But yes, we have had some very strong novels coming out, and some great new voices making their presence felt too.””What is particularly interesting to me is the way in which fiction writers in India are reacting and responding to the environment that they live and write in – it has brought a sharp edge to many of the books that have come out this year. Another notable trend is the re-emergence of short fiction – the ability of a novelist to tell a good story well in a space of 200 pages or less – which I believe has something to do with the sensibilities of both readers and writers being shaped by the age of social media,” Mitra told in an interview.Other publishing houses that published strong fiction during 2017 include Aleph (“The Book of Chocolate Saints”); Juggernaut (“When I Hit You”; and Niyogi Books (“Without Prejudice”).
