A new YouTube video provides a brilliant mash-up between Battlestar Galactica ... and Simon & Garfunkel.

Everyone knows Simon & Garfunkel's "The Sound of Silence"; my parents were fans, so I grew up on the schmaltzy two-part harmonies, and we'd be willing to bet that a few of you are nodding along.

Even if you're not a fan of Battlestar Galactica — the sci-fi TV series that catalogues the tail end of a long war between real humans and artificial ones — this mash-up, posted by YouTube user Saul Tigh (a pseudonym, obviously), is fantastic. We love the minimal lyrical alteration, and whoever is singing it has the vocals spot-on.

It's the only activity so far for Mr Tigh, but we sincerely hope to see more.

Outcry over iPhone 'Error 53' and bad USB Type-C cables

Be careful when replacing parts. Poorly made cables can fry a laptop, and iPhones will stop working if the Touch ID button is repaired outside of Apple. It's a lesson some are learning the hard way.
