3D modeler Martin Utrecht is back with his latest render, and it's of the iPhone 7, which is reportedly already in production, with Samsung already beginning to mass produce the A9 chip that will power the mobile device. Industry sources claim that Apple may hold two press events next year, to showcase the iPhone 6S in spring, and in September, to unveil the iPhone 7. Utrecht says: "Based on an idea from tech editor Steven Tweedie from Business insider I visualized what an iPhone 6 would look like with the display pushed to the edges. One concept looks at making the display wider - by doing so the overall physical dimensions of the iPhone become smaller than that of the iPhone 6. The other concept imagines a display which goes all over the front...with a few holes in the display where the speaker and touch ID/home button go."

Funny Yahoo Answers Fails

Ever have a burning questions on your mind that just sounds plain absurd? Well, those questions are better left for Google, and not a public message board like Yahoo Answers.

It was created to replace Ask Yahoo!, Yahoo!'s former Q&A platform which was discontinued in March 2006. Continue reading for more.

Buying a bottle of Coca-Cola from a vending machine isn't anything special, but the last thing you'd expect to see coming out is some money and a furry thing.

Black holes of stellar mass are expected to form when very massive stars collapse at the end of their life cycle. After a black hole has formed, it can continue to grow by absorbing mass from its surroundings. By absorbing other stars and merging with other black holes, supermassive black holes of millions of solar masses may form. There is general consensus that supermassive black holes exist in the centers of most galaxies. Click here to view the first image in this week's funny work pictures gallery.
