the audi e-tron is great news for tesla drivers
tesla may have had the early bird advantage in electric cars, but while increasing competition from vehicles like the new 2019 audi e-tron may give elon musk’s business plan a headache, for drivers it’s all good news. the new electric suv won’t just headline audi’s new electric car strategy when it arrives in dealerships next year: it’ll also mark a turning point in a new ev infrastructure that’s great news for tesla drivers too. tesla did its prep work when it launched its electric car business, not only developing the cars but the supercharger network to recharge them. even today, it’s a feat unmatched by any individual automaker. while we’ve seen a growing number of pure-electric and plug-in hybrid models on the roads, they’ve all relied on third-party infrastructure from companies like chargepoint and evgo.the 2019 audi e-tron will be different, however. while drivers of the electric suv will be able to use chargepoint, evgo, and other third-party chargers, audi is pushing electrify america as its network of choice. the choice is no accident, either. that’s because, while it may not have volkswagen group branding, electrify america certainly has a lot of its money. in fact, the charging company was formed as part of volkswagen’s mea-culpa over “dieselgate,: when the automaker group was found to be using so-called “defeat devices” to mislead emissions testing on diesel cars. one part of its court settlement was to invest significantly in promoti...

meizu 16x detailed: fullscreen metallic ceramic jealousy
the meizu 16x was just revealed in the same price range as the pocophone f1 and honor play (2018). this is a smartphone with extreme chops, especially for its price, giving us another reason to be joyful in the tech news universe. not only because this phone looks pretty great, but because it’s another sign that we’re moving out of the blah zone!no longer are we in the mobile market where only apple dictates the look and feel of every smartphone. no longer are we seeing big ugly buttons all over the place, and antenna lines for aesthetic’s sake, and phones made to look like the iphone in general. nay, because here’s meizu.the meizu 16x is very similar to a phone revealed by the same manufacturer earlier this year. take a peek at the meizu 16th to see what’s basically the earlier version of the phone we’re looking at today. today meizu revealed the 16x, a new smartphone with a fullscreen display and a metal back that feels like ceramic.a few details shared by meizu this week make this phone seem pretty great – on the outside, at least. up front is a 6-inch custom-made (by samsung) amoled display with a resolution of 2160×1080. there’s a fingerprint sensor in the display, and there’s no notch whatsoever. there’s a tiny bit more bezel above and below the display, but an overall miniature bezel around the whole display in general. the meizu 16x has a full metal backside with a special treatment to make the phone feel ceramic. that’s smooth and fancy. the wh...

playstation classic pre-orders go live: here's where to get one
earlier today, sony announced the playstation classic. this new mini console promises 20 ps1 games pre-loaded onto a shrunken-down replica of the original playstation console, which just so happens to be celebrating its 25th birthday this year. though it won’t be here until december, it’s gone up for pre-order today from a number of different retailers.if you already know that you want a playstation classic, it might not be a bad idea to pre-order one. the nes classic and snes classic were both met with a lot of enthusiasm at launch, with the nes classic being notoriously difficult to find for much of its original retail run. by the time the snes classic hit shelves, stock issues certainly got better, but they weren’t solved entirely.it stands to reason that there will be similar excitement behind the launch of the playstation classic. the original playstation was a turning point for the games industry, and by the time it was discontinued in 2006, it had sold more than 100 million units worldwide. the fact that it’s one of only three home consoles to cross the 100 million threshold should reinforce the notion that the playstation classic could be a big launch for sony.if you want to pre-order one, you can do so today from gamestop, best buy, and walmart. a listing for the console hasn’t gone live on amazon just yet, but we imagine it will before long. at all three retailers, the playstation classic will launch on december 3 for $99.99.if you’re on the fence about ...

google emergency location service for android arrives in the us
back in 2016, google announced the launch of emergency location service in android, a feature that provides 911 call centers with important location data. in the couple years since that introduction, google has expanded the els feature to android users around the world, brining it to 14 countries. now the company is back with another update, this one involving t-mobile and rapidsos.emergency calls depend on accurate location information, something the caller isn’t always able to provide. cell phones have presented a troubling issue when it comes to locating callers, but google’s emergency location service feature in android aims to solve the problem. with this, emergency call centers get fairly accurate location data based on things like gps and wifi.in an announcement today, google revealed that it has teamed with t-mobile and rapidsos to bring els to the united states. according to google, 99-percent of existing android smartphones running version 4.0 and higher support the els technology. however, this feature only activates when the service provider or local emergency infrastructure provider supports it, making partnerships important. assuming someone has a supported phone in a supported region, no extra steps are necessary to use els. emergency centers in the us will soon be able to support the technology thanks to google’s partnership with rapidsos, an emergency tech company that can integrate its product with the software already used by 911 centers. as well, t-m...

steelseries arctis 3 with wired, bluetooth audio gets 2019 upgrades
steelseries has updated its arctis 3 gaming headset, which includes wired and bluetooth connectivity, to include new audio and comfort enhancements. the headset is particularly suitable for use with the nintendo switch, enabling owners to connect the headset to the console using the wired connection and to the nintendo switch online app using the bluetooth connection.the arctis 3 model was originally introduced in november 2017 as a gaming headset boasting simultaneous audio support, that enabling users to connect to both a wired and wireless audio source at the same time. that same functionality remains in the updated version of the arctis 3 bluetooth, but additional improvements have been made based on user feedback.the memory foam ear cushions, for example, have been improved and there’s a new simplified cable system. as well, steelseries says the headset now has an improved bass response, improving audio quality. this is joined by the noise-cancelling microphone, which reduces background noises for clearer audio.the arctis 3 bluetooth remains notable for its ability to connect to an ordinary 3.5mm audio port and bluetooth at the exact same time. this could be used to, for example, connect to a voice chatting app like discord or the nintendo switch online app, but also listen to game audio by plugging the headset directly into a console, like the switch, or a game controller.this updated version adds many of the features present in steelseries’ 2019 arctis editions, ac...

red dead redemption 2's online mode gets a november beta
for months now, rockstar has been drip feeding us information about red dead redemption 2‘s single player offerings, but today it went in a different direction to reveal some details about the game’s online mode. dubbed red dead online, we learned today that it won’t actually be launching alongside the main game in october. instead, it’ll be following closely behind with a beta that’s releasing in november.rockstar says that red dead online will be “an evolution of the classic multiplayer experience in the original red dead redemption, blending narrative with competitive and cooperative gameplay in fun new ways.” as you’d expect, red dead online will draw heavy inspiration from the gameplay found in red dead redemption 2, with rockstar promising frequent updates and balance patches for the online mode.details were pretty slim, but we can probably expect red dead online to be an evolution of not only the original red dead redemption‘s multiplayer, but grand theft auto v’s as well. grand theft auto v‘s multiplayer has helped keep the game relevant years after launch, and it still manages to rank in the top 10 most-played steam games fairly consistently because of it. red dead online won’t be a finished product right out of the gate, either. rockstar says that the online mode will launch in public beta at some point in november 2018. a more specific release date for the beta will be announced later, but we do know that it’ll be free to anyone who owns a...

white shark cafe: why sharks travel to this one spot
there’s a spot in the pacific ocean between hawaii and mexico where great white sharks hang en masse. this is the white shark cafe, and it’s not the plot of a fictional story – it’s a real place. originally discovered 14 years ago by stanford marine scientist barbara block, this year a team of researchers took the plunge to see what was up – or down, rather. every december of every year for the past 14 years (at least), there’s been a massive meeting of great white sharks in the pacific ocean. almost like they were holding an annual get-together to plan on how to remain ferocious enough to be shown in feature films in hollywood. scientists from stanford university and the monterey bay aquarium in ca, usa, led an expedition this year to this shark-centric gathering.throughout the months of april and may of this year, researchers tracked a large number of great white sharks as they moved through their white shark cafe adventure. “the story of the white shark tells you that this area is vitally important in ways we never knew about,” said one of the expedition leaders, salvador jorgensen (also research scientist for the monterey bay aquarium.) “they are telling us this incredible story about the mid-water, and there is this whole secret life that we need to know about”above you’ll see a very basic visualization of the data collected by these researchers over the course of two months (plus several more months of basic tracking). research was centered approxi...

fortnite purple cube transforms loot lake into giant bounce pad
the giant purple cube in epic games’ hit battle royale game fortnite has apparently reached its destination, a spot many fans had guessed would be the final resting place: loot lake. the map’s giant lake, home to small islands and an isolated house, is now a giant, gelatinous blob of purple bouncy magic.fortnite fans watched the cube with great interest earlier today, entire livestreams having been dedicated to following the cube’s progression as it rested, nearly tipped, at the edge of the lake. many questioned whether the cube would roll into the lake or pass alongside it, but around noon today, the answer arrived: it entered the lake.the event was caught on video by a number of players who report seeing the purple cube melt into the lake like a giant piece of sugar. a purple electricity dispersed into the water, transforming the lake into a purple mass. initially it seemed that nothing would happen, but seconds later an eruption exploded into the air.after that, the lake became a giant bounce pad, allowing players to jump across it with the same weightlessness as bouncing on the cube itself. there are some notable differences — you can’t anger the purple lake by shooting it, for example, and it no longer hits people with lightning bolts if disturbed.the change comes right on time. fortnite season 5 is less than a week away from from ending, which will usher in season 6 and all the big changes fans have been expecting. players have only a handful of days left to c...

apple watch series 4 review roundup: do you need it?
early apple watch series 4 reviews seem to agree that the device is different from last year. early reviews seem to agree that apple watch series 4 is one of the best, if not flat-out the best smartwatch in the world right this minute. the element that doesn’t seem to have been agreed upon by all early reviewers is this: should you buy?the new apple watch has a larger display than the previous model. gen 3 had either a 740 or 563 sq mm display, while gen 4’s models are 977 or 759 sq mm. as it is with most devices, you’ll only really notice the difference if you’ve experienced both. the new watch’s display size alone doesn’t necessarily provide a lot more functionality – it’s the new norm.“off your wrist, those changes are hardly noticeable,” said scott rosenfield on wired. “the watch still looks like a watch. but in practice, the larger screen feels as significant as going from the iphone 5 to the iphone 6.”see up close: apple watch series 4 hands-on: simply mesmerizinggen 4 has a new set of chips inside, including the apple s4 chip + w3 wireless chip. that’s one generation newer than the apple watch gen 3, and provides the additional power needed to handle the new hardware features in the new watch. this includes such gems as an electrocardiogram sensor, a second-gen optical heart sensor, and the sensor combo needed for fall detection.this new model has a “50% louder speaker” and a newer version of bluetooth. where gen 3 had bluetooth 4.2, the n...

iphone xs, xs max, xr battery sizes revealed ahead of launch
apple’s newest batch of iphones begin launching later this week, and though apple has revealed most of the specifications for each device, there are still a few that are unknown. specifically, the spec sheets for the iphone xs, xs max, and xr don’t share any details on ram amounts or battery sizes, and those a fairly crucial details for people who are comparing and contrasting these phones with competitors. thankfully, we may not have to wait for launch to learn these specifics, as new regulatory filings spill all of the juicy details.as reported by macrumors, these three new iphones recently made a pass through china’s ministry of industry and information technology for approval ahead of launch. macrumors tracked down the listings for each individual iphone, potentially laying the question of battery sizes to rest.tenaa states that the iphone xs – this year’s standard iphone model – ships with a 2,658 mah battery. that’s actually slightly smaller than the battery we saw in the iphone x, but apple’s own specifications say that the xs can last around 30 minutes longer than the original x. obviously, your mileage will vary depending on what you’re doing and the fact that in-house tests don’t always replicate real-world scenarios effectively, so we can probably expect battery life in the xs and the x to be more or less the same.the iphone xr is in the middle of the pack with its 2,942 mah battery, and the iphone xs max ships with a 3,174 mah battery. though t...

cat s60 review: hardcore to a fault
the world’s first thermal imaging smartphone is the cat s60, a device first introduced back in february of 2016. this smartphone is part of a collection of android-based devices made by the folks at cat, aka caterpillar. we’ve not traditionally reviewed a lot of android devices this far from their original release date for several reasons, one of which is android updates.it’s more of a cat than an androidthis is not a phone for android fans. it did not move beyond android marshmallow, and only received the most crucial of firmware updates. like back in october of 2017, it got a firmware update to solve the blueborn vulnerability. not much after that.instead, this is a smartphone for people who work in rugged environments and could benefit from thermal imaging in their daily lives. there are people out there, believe it or not, who can benefit from heat vision but do not care about android updates. for them, this s60 might be just the ticket.this phone has one very important thing in common with the first razer phone. because it does not follow smartphone trends and instead concentrates on one or two other super-specific areas of interest, cat s60 and razer phone (2017) are quite alike. but where the razer phone had mobile courage, the cat s60 falls just a little short.above you’ll see the display on full brightness in both the shade and in direct sunlight. it’s not quite up to the task for one of these two, but the other does fine, for the most part.with a 4.7-inch ...

sega's mega drive mini has been delayed
it’s proving to be a surprisingly big day for retro consoles. sony kicked things off by announcing the playstation classic, a mini console modeled after the very first playstation with 20 pre-loaded games, and now sega has delivered an update on its mega drive mini. unfortunately, it isn’t a particularly good update.sega has announced via twitter that it’s chosen to push the mega drive mini back to 2019. announced back in april at sega festival 2018, the mega drive mini and a north american counterpart based on the genesis were scheduled to launch sometime this year. judging from the tweets (which were roughly translated by twitter), it sounds like sega will take the console back to the drawing board.originally, sega was creating the mega drive mini with the help of atgames, which has released a number of genesis and mega drive-themed retro consoles throughout the years. in this pair of tweets, sega said that it has now started working with a japanese developer that has “proven” itself in the software development space. that developer wasn’t revealed in this announcement, so it remains a mystery for now.on top of that, sega also said that the mega drive mini and genesis mini will have a simultaneous worldwide launch at some point next year. initially, the company only confirmed the mega drive mini for japan, so to hear that it’s getting a simultaneous worldwide release is definitely exciting.there’s still a lot we don’t know about the mega drive mini; notabl...

oneplus 6t big leaks giveth and taketh away
today a leak of the backside of the oneplus 6t shows one previous rendering-based tip to be untrue. it would seem that the oneplus 6t won’t have three cameras on its back, after all. instead, if we’re to believe what’s been shared today, the oneplus 6t will come with two cameras on its back, not unlike its predecessor released earlier this year.it makes sense, after all. oneplus hasn’t generally made massive changes device-to-device inside the year when they’ve released their “t” phones. instead they’ve seemed to make the big upgrades year-to-year, changing when the big base number changes. in this case, that means they’re sticking with the same camera array they had with oneplus 6.the oneplus 6t’s biggest change may be in its display. the display here is likely set to resemble that of associated brand phones vivo and oppo. we’ve seen the oppo f9 teardrop notch up close, and it’s pretty on-point. it’s something we’d not be surprised to see oneplus take advantage of.but, and this is a big ol’ but, what happens to the earpiece and the front-facing sensor(s)? they’d need to be kicked to the bottom of the device – the chin – or they’d have to be hidden somehow. or maybe they’re no longer important enough to include at all?the backside image we’re looking at today comes from winfuture, where author roland quandt compared the new backside to that of the oneplus 6, saying (translated) “a comparison with the oneplus 6 shows that the positio...

nintendo switch games just got a huge advantage for multi-console owners
yesterday, nintendo switch online launched, bringing with it classic nes games and paid online multiplayer. one feature of nintendo switch online (or, more specifically, firmware update 6.0.0) that wasn’t heavily advertised, however, is the ability to play games across multiple consoles. realizing that you can play games across multiple consoles is definitely exciting, but of course, there are a few exceptions.keep in mind that we’re only talking about digital software that’s been downloaded from the eshop, as playing a physical game on another console is as easy as popping a cartridge into the slot and booting it up. with that out of the way, nintendo has detailed what you can and can’t do with owned content on consoles other than your primary switch in a new article on its support site.your primary switch is the one you’re using when you connect your nintendo account to the eshop for the first time. you can only have one primary console at a time, and when you add your nintendo account to other consoles, they won’t be activated as your primary one unless you’ve already deactivated your main switch. you can download your content to non-primary consoles, but you can only play that content while that switch is connected to the internet.the game you’re playing will pause automatically when you lose that internet connection and resume when your connection is restored. only the person who purchased the digital content can start it on a non-primary console, and if ...

playstation classic challenges nintendo mini consoles with 20 ps1 games
today, sony announced the playstation classic, a new mini console that comes loaded with 20 ps1 games. with nintendo’s success in selling the nes classic and snes classic, this is something we should have seen coming, as the playstation 1 was home to many fondly remembered titles. the timing of this announcement is pretty perfect too, as the original playstation is turning 25 years old later this year.in fact, sony has lined up a release date of december 3, 2018 for the playstation classic – 25 years to the day after the first playstation launched in japan. in a post to the playstation blog today, sony confirmed that the playstation classic will come with 20 pre-loaded games, but it didn’t reveal a full list of included titles. it did, however, say that final fantasy 7, jumping flash, ridge racer type 4, tekken 3, and wild arms are all on the roster.the other 15 titles will be revealed at a later date, leaving us to guess what they could be in the meantime. we’ll probably see at least one entry each from the tomb raider and twisted metal series, and it’s possible that we’ll see games like castlevania: symphony of the night and metal gear solid assuming sony can work out licensing for them. there were a lot of great games on the original playstation, so narrowing the classic to just 20 seems like a difficult task.sony says that the playstation classic is about 45% smaller than the original playstation, keeping with the mini console theme that made the nes and snes ...

firefox reality vr web browser now out for vive, oculus, daydream
virtual reality is all about immersing yourself in a made-up world that looks (in theory) like you’re really in it. the last thing you need is a flat floating rectangle that shatters that illusion. that said, if you ever need to access the web, that’s exactly the only way. mozilla, however, says it doesn’t have to be a painful and disconcerting experience. with firefox reality now in its version 1.0 stable release, one of the world’s biggest web browsers is taking a step towards blending the 2d web and the immersive web.unless it’s 3d content specifically crafted for vr, content on the web will always be 2d. that poses some practical problems when browsing using vr headsets. of course, there’s the problem of having a floating window in front of you. the bigger issue, however, is input.until the day we can type in vr with all our fingers, text input will always be tricky. mozilla’s solution is simple really: use your voice. we’ve become so familiar with voice-controlled smart assistants that speaking to your vr headset won’t feel weird at all.there are not a few content made for vr on the web but finding them isn’t exactly easy. to save you time and effort in asking, firefox reality will immediately surface such kind of browser-based content when you open it up. mozilla promises more such content will appear as they work with more and more creators of vr games, videos, and more.firefox reality 1.0 is now available on the three biggest vr platforms: htc vive...

tesla to add dashcam feature to autopilot version 9
tesla is making some of the most popular evs on the market, and one of the hallmarks of those cars is the ability for tesla to add new features over the air. a new feature has been confirmed as coming to the next version of autopilot by ceo elon musk via twitter. according to musk, a long requested and the anticipated feature will land in version 9 next month.this feature is a dash camera that will record what is going on around the vehicle and play it back should the video be required. all current gen tesla vehicles have eight different cameras to support autopilot. tesla has been using the feed from those cameras for its own needs in accident investigation for a while.for instance, the camera video was used in the investigation when a model x crashed into a building, and the embarrassed owner claimed the car accelerated without his intervention. that dashcam capability was possible in the first gen autopilot hardware with a single camera. musk previously promised the feature was coming soon for owners to use.more than a year after that initial promise, the dashcam feature hasn’t landed yet. musk’s tweet says that the dashcam feature is in final testing right now. the version 9 software was expected by now but has faced delays.exactly what those delays are hasn’t been announced. to start, the dashcam will be a beta feature to be expanded on in the future. autopilot version 9 will also add new autopilot capabilities and a new user interface among other things.source: el...

hubble discovery could change our understanding of neutron star evolution
despite its many years of service, the hubble space telescope is still helping astronomers and scientists to understand the universe. hubble has discovered features around a neutron star that have never been seen before leaving scientists trying to figure out what has been discovered. hubble found an unusual infrared light emission around a nearby neutron star.the discovery indicates two possibilities according to the scientists. one theory is that there is a disc of dust surrounding the neutron star and the other has to do with a strong wind coming off the neutron star and hitting gas in interstellar space that the star is moving through. the neutron star in question is called rx j0806.4-4123.nasa says that it has observed an area of infrared emission around the neutron star that is about 200 astronomical units, or about 18 billion miles. this is the first item a neutron star extended signal has been seen only in infrared light. the dusty disc theory suggests a “fallback disk” of material that is comprised of matter from the progenitor star is surrounding the neutron star.interaction with that material could have heated the pulsar and slowed its rotation, if this theory is confirmed it could change the understanding of neutron stars. the other possibility is a “pulsar wind nebula.” this theory assumes that a pulsar wind exists.that sort of wind is produced when a shockwave forms as a neutron star moves through the interstellar medium faster than the speed of sound. t...

bluestacks 4 boasts better android gaming on pcs than on [update]
smartphones these days, especially the really expensive ones, have become super powerful they can almost do anything. despite that, pcs still have an edge when it comes to sheer processing and graphics power. if only you could take that power and use it for mobile apps, mobile games most especially. that’s pretty much the thinking behind the latest bluestacks 4 release that promises to deliver a better smartphone gaming experience on a pc than on your high-end smartphone.there are quite a few ways to run android apps or android itself on pcs and their purposes are just many. some are meant more as development tools to test out android apps before deploying to a device. others run a full android environment on top of windows or macos. others, like bluestacks, are designed with mobile gaming in mind.that use case incurs some technical difficulties because of the layers that have to sit between the game that’s designed for android and the desktop operating system underneath. so when bluestacks makes a boast that its latest release can deliver a better gaming experience than the galaxy s9+ and iphone x, that’s definitely something. bluestacks 4 was noted to have a 31.25% advantage over the galaxy s9+ when running lineage 2, 12.6% when playing the ever so popular pubg.update: according to bluestacks’ press kit, the pcs they used for testing included the asus x555ub-ns71, a $650 notebook running on a 6th gen intel core i7 with 8 gb of ram and a 2 gb nvidia geforce 940m. thi...

apple’s iphone xs event, while expected, may have disappointed some apple fans. especially those who expected more than just a new iphone or a new apple watch. especially those who were wishing for a new ipad pro. it might be too early to give up all hope, though, because new hints are popping up pointing to exactly that, probably next month even. but even better, the new ipad pro might not be as bad as some might have thought it would be.on the one hand, it wasn’t completely unexpected that apple would devout its stage time to just the three new iphones and the series 4 apple watch. those alone already took up a lot of time. in fact, even the possibility of new ipads, specifically ipad pros, wasn’t that certain anyway. the signs says they do exist, but it has always been a question of when.if ios 12.1, which has just landed in beta, is any indication, the answer is “this fall”. 9to5mac dug into some code to reveal reference to an “ipad2018fall” in the settings app. ios 12.1’s “memoji syncing” feature also “confirms” that this ipad would have a truedepth camera for memojis and, of course, face id.of course, that was already expected but it was also believed that the camera would force the ipad pro into a portrait orientation. not so, says developer steve troughton-smith. his analysis of ios 12.1 reveals support for landscape orientation for face id, at least for ipads only. that could mean apple didn’t move the location of the ipad camera after all. ...

pocophone f1 teardown: easy and surprising
xiaomi’s pocophone f1 is poised to snatch the title of “flagship killer” away from oneplus. but unlike oneplus, the pocophone is unabashedly a budget phone that spreads a lot of plastic around. jerryrigeverything, however, proved that, at least on the outside, the smartphone is just as sturdy as more expensive flagships. now the popular youtube channel is opening up the phone that lived to see if it is just as impressive on the inside as it was on the outside.one of the benefits of using plastic is that you are unlikely to apply a unibody design. in other words, it’s easy enough to pry pocophone f1 open after removing just two screws. and with no waterproofing, there was no sticky adhesive to foil youtuber zach nelson. that said, he does note that the display is tightly tucked into the plastic back cover, which is what helped keep the screen from popping off during the bend test.inside are more screws and not much else keeping things down. aside from the glue under the battery. amusingly, the pocophone f1 does have some water ingress markers to tell you or technicians if water did get into the phone. it might not be waterproof but you’ll at least know if it was damaged by water.surprise number two is the phone’s liquid cooling system. not exactly surprising since xiaomi boasted about it. what’s surprising is how it uses practically the same technology as samsung, minus the large copper plate. who says you have to pay a lot to keep your phone cool.although we’r...

galaxy s9+ with android pie: here's what it will look like
having launched before android pie did, it’s not really surprising that the galaxy s9 is still on android 8.1 oreo (the galaxy note 9 has fewer excuses). and given samsung’s track record, it’s also unsurprising that it hasn’t been upgraded yet. that said, it’s good to hear that samsung is actually already working on its samsung experience 10 based on android pie. even better, it seems to be well on its way to being stable. even better than better, samsung is taking a few visual cues straight from android pie itself.once upon a time, samsung made it a point to visually separate itself from the rest of the android brood. perhaps giving in to both users’ and google’s demands, the world’s biggest android maker has finally taken steps to reunite with the family. at least visually speaking.screenshots of an early build of the android 9 pie samsung experience 10 obtained by xda shows the galaxy s9+ adopting the rounded curves of pie. that’s seen almost everywhere, from ui elements in apps to notification, to the recent apps screen. that last one also adopts pie’s large cards and horizontal scrolling.sadly, samsung doesn’t adopt android pie’s gestures. it did add some new ones, but the swipe gestures it has only trigger the conventional navigation buttons and only work when the panel is hidden. samsung obviously still needed to have the last word.samsung experience 10 will also bring a new night theme and revamped system apps using the new curved look. the loc...

spacex says it would likely launch military weapons if asked
yesterday, spacex announced its first private customer for a future flight near the moon. on the same day, the company confirmed that it would at least consider launching weapons into space if asked to do so. the statement was given as an answer to a question, with the company indicating that the potential service would be provided for the us government if necessary for defense purposes.the statement was made by spacex president and coo gwynne shotwell during the air force association’s symposium yesterday. the question was posed, “would spacex launch military weapons?” the answer to that, it seems, is it depends. shotwell didn’t say the company would be guaranteed to do so, but indicated that it would at least think about the possibility. “i’ve never been asked that question,” shotwell first said in response. “if it’s for the defense of this country, yes, i think we would.” shotwell was asked about whether she is concerned about national security threats from space involving russia or china, as well. she said — at the business level — that spacex is concerned about competition from both nations due to being “backed heavily by their governments.”the company has focused heavily on a number of projects, including the successful creation of rockets that can be landed and reused. spacex is working toward the event transportation of human crews to and from the international space station, that being a stepping stone toward the distant goal of taking hum...

bluestacks 4 boasts better android gaming on pcs than on phones
smartphones these days, especially the really expensive ones, have become super powerful they can almost do anything. despite that, pcs still have an edge when it comes to sheer processing and graphics power. if only you could take that power and use it for mobile apps, mobile games most especially. that’s pretty much the thinking behind the latest bluestacks 4 release that promises to deliver a better smartphone gaming experience on a pc than on your high-end smartphone.there are quite a few ways to run android apps or android itself on pcs and their purposes are just many. some are meant more as development tools to test out android apps before deploying to a device. others run a full android environment on top of windows or macos. others, like bluestacks, are designed with mobile gaming in mind.that use case incurs some technical difficulties because of the layers that have to sit between the game that’s designed for android and the desktop operating system underneath. so when bluestacks makes a boast that its latest release can deliver a better gaming experience than the galaxy s9+ and iphone x, that’s definitely something. bluestacks 4 was noted to have a 31.25% advantage over the galaxy s9+ when running lineage 2, 12.6% when playing the ever so popular pubg. that said, bluestacks doesn’t divulge the specs of the pc it was using.in addition to the performance, bluestacks 4 also gives the android-on-pc software a facelift, making the ui less cluttered and more str...

humans may be hardwired for laziness according to new study
when faced with the opportunity to go to the gym or stay home lying on the couch binge-watching netflix, those already doing the latter may find it very difficult to work up the motivation for physical activity. this sort of laziness may be hardwired into humans, according to new research out of the university of british columbia.the research was conducted by university of british columbia researcher matthieu boisgontier and colleagues who set out to determine why people are exercising less than ever. it’s common knowledge that exercise and physical activity are a key element to staying healthy, but such knowledge does little to get someone off the couch.the reasons for that may lie in the human brain, which has to work harder when the person transitions from lazy to active states. researchers discovered this using computers that flashed single images showing either inactivity or activity. volunteers were tasked with moving an avatar to activity pictures and away from inactivity pictures.while doing this, researchers got a look at the volunteers’ brain activity, finding that more work was required when moving away from inactivity than toward activity. this could be a hardwired reality reinforced by evolution, one that encourages humans to conserve energy by chilling out and dedicating their efforts to things that increase survival, such as finding food and shelter.this isn’t the first study to find hints of laziness hardwired in the human brain. last year, a study out o...

galaxy s10 might have a fourth sibling
why have only two when you can get away with three? but why stop at three when you can have four? even before apple announced its iphone xs trio, but around the time rumors started popping up, samsung was leaked to also have three galaxy s10 models in the works. now it seems that samsung will actually have four, really three and a half, models, with one bearing what oems and carriers are pushing to be the next big thing in the market: 5g.it’s pretty much expected to be called the galaxy s10 by now, though, at least internally, they’re still nicknamed the “beyond” phones, numbered 0 to 2 (it’s a geek thing). the three phones are expected to slightly mirror this year’s iphones in terms of pricing scheme, sizes, and features. at least to some extent.for example, the “beyond 0” phone is said to be the budget version, though it will have the same 5.8-inch screen size as the “beyond 1”. it will have a single main camera though, and the jury’s still out on what kind of fingerprint sensor it will have and where. the 5.8-inch “beyond 1” will be the base galaxy s10 model with dual cameras while the “beyond 2” is the 6.44-inch “plus” that brings the rumored triple rear cameras along with dual front cameras.some digging by xda revealed, however, that there’s going to be a variant of the beyond 2, simply called “beyond 2 5g”. if it isn’t that obvious, it refers to the exact same beyond 2, just equipped with a 5g-capable modem. manufacturers are sl...

chrome os 69 finally brings linux apps to stable channel
google has recently celebrated the tenth anniversary of its chrome browser. that web browser has certainly grown up to the extent that it has become the base for an entire operating system. while chrome os doesn’t have anything fancy to celebrate the birthday, release version 69 is still a monumental one. in addition to bringing the ui up to the latest material design 2.0, it also marks the long-awaited stable release of a feature that truly extends chrome os beyond a mere browser-based os: linux support.it’s not exactly new and those with stronger hearts have been testing out linux support on unstable branches. in chrome os v69, however, the feature is now available in the stable channel so there’s no need to switch to developer branches just to get it. users will still have to enable it, though. as reported, not all chromebooks are capable of running what is essentially a linux virtual machine on top of chrome os. specifically, older chromebooks with baytrail processors are left out of the party.chrome os 69 also adds features that make it better as a tablet device, especially when it comes to android and touch support. that includes a new files app that makes it easier to access files from the android side, night light support, and a more consistent tablet mode behavior.just like the chrome browser, chrome os has grown a lot since the earliest days, when it was seen as nothing but a gateway to google’s cloud services and apps. while that partly remains true, with a...

spock's planet 'vulcan' found years after star trek prediction
star trek character spock originated from the fictional planet vulcan, which was said to (probably) exist in real life orbiting around the star 40 eridani a. that prediction was made in 1991 by series creator gene roddenberry and a trio of astronomers, and now decades later it has been proven mostly true: a planet at that location has been discovered.the saga started back in 1991, when roddenberry and astronomers with the harvard-smithsonian center for astrophysics wrote a letter to sky & telescope arguing that 40 eridani a would likely be the planet vulcan’s star. the actual location of vulcan was never disclosed in the tv show or movie, but imaging where it would reside was a fun expansion of the fictional universe.the letter had argued that 40 eridani a was a likely candidate for serving as vulcan’s star due to its estimated age of 4 billion years. the idea was that any planet orbiting this star would have had enough time for intelligent life to evolve. now, nearly 30 years later, that prediction has proven oddly accurate: a super-earth type of planet was been discovered orbiting the 40 eridani star. the discovery was made by the dharma planet survey, which involves a 50-inch telescope that looks for blips in star light that could indicate the presence of planets. the planet found orbiting 40 eridani a is estimated to have between 8 and 9 times the mass of earth, as well as double its radius. the planet’s orbit is 42 days long and it resides a bit inside of the 40 er...

your car windshield could be an ar hologram in 2020
holographic car windshields that overlay augmented reality graphics atop the real world could be closer than you think, with porsche, hyundai, and others tapping a smart glass startup developing the transparent tech. wayray has been working on holographic augmented reality head-up display technologies since 2012, developing a compact hologram projector that could change what you see through your car’s windows. it’s enough to get the attention of porsche, hyundai, alibaba group, jvckenwood, china merchants capital, and an assortment of other funds, which have collectively pumped $80m in round c financing into the swiss firm. it brings wayray’s total fundraising to more than $100m, despite not having begun full production. while head-up displays are increasingly common options on cars, even at their largest they typically occupy a relatively small portion of the windshield. the idea so far has been to project key driving information there, usually including speed and the current speed limit, though often adding navigation instructions too. however wayray’s goal is something a lot more comprehensive. its holographic projection system, the company says, is not only smaller than that of existing hud rivals, but capable of covering far more of the car’s glass. indeed, the wide field of view could end up overlaying the entire windshield. further projectors could add coverage to the side windows, too. that opens the door to a wide range of new ar possibilities. in porsche??...
