A scifi tale by virtue of its setting, but an old-school film noir at heart thanks to its story, Mute is a puzzle with eccentric pieces that eventually all fit together—perhaps a bit too neatly, given its fondness for jagged edges.But its love of sleazy neon and some unusual themes do much to make up for its contrivances.Also—told you there were some unusual themes—he’s Amish.Though he’s not totally devout, he’s still the most lo-fi person in Mute’s futuristic version of Berlin; it’s a grimy place, full of tawdry bars, brothels, faux-American diners, and tech that’s seemingly used solely for instant gratification.Granted, he’d already be unique because he can’t talk, but being freakin’ Amish just ups the ante.That, and the fact that he appears to be the only person in the city who’s motivated by the purest of causes: True love.

Finding yourself responsible for an icon can be a blessing as a curse, something Porsche is all too familiar with when it comes to the 911.Responsible for leading that change is August Achleitner, who has some Porsche legacy of his own indeed.“The decisive factor is that the 911 generates a driving feeling that no other car can impart,” the 911 model line director says, having held that position for almost two decades.“We know where we’re from and where we want to go.”Still, 911 mainstays like the flat-six engine mounted at the rear are going to face increasing pressure to embrace new powertrains.Porsche hasn’t been slow to adopt electrification, though that’s primarily found in its more recently-created vehicles, like the Panamera four-door.

Local news sites Gothamist, LAist and DCist are coming back from the dead.Their assets (including story archives) have been acquired by three public radio companies — WNYC in New York, KPCC in Southern California and WAMU in Washington, D.C.According to the acquisition announcement, the deal comes after a competitive sale process, and it was funded by “generous philanthropic donations from two anonymous donors.”Gothamist and its sister sites were acquired by DNAinfo last year.Both Gothamist and DNAinfo were shut down in November, shortly after the editorial teams unionized.(At the time, a DNAinfo spokesperson said the unionization was “simply another competitive obstacle making it harder for the business to be financially successful.”)

Making sure that we secure our various online identities with unique passwords can be a tough thing to do, but thankfully, we have password managers to help us out with that.These password managers have varying features but at the end of the day should all do the same thing: allow you to organize and store your passwords securely.1Password is a service that’s frequently brought up in discussions about password managers, and today it’s adding a neat new feature that should help you make even better password decisions.Beginning today, 1Password will tell you if the password you’re thinking of using for a login has been leaked in the past.In addition to the usual “Copy, “Reveal,” and “Large Type” buttons you usually see next to an entry in your 1Password library, you’ll now see a fourth option: “Check Password.” You can use this to see if the password you’re considering has been leaked in any previous data breaches.Those who concern themselves with password security likely already know of a similar service called Pwned Passwords.

Huawei didn't even wait for its MWC 2018 press conference to unveil the name it's new flagship handset will launch under, doing it instead in a teaser video.The Huawei P20 - not the P11, as some might have expected - is the moniker chosen for the new phone, which we expect to be launched in March at a separate event.Huawei clearly didn't want to fight it out with the Samsung Galaxy S9 for 'top billing' at the Barcelona mobile show, so instead chose to show us a teaser video with the words 'See More with AI' below the name of the phone.The Huawei P20 is expected to pack three lenses on the back of the phone (as hinted at strongly by the teaser), leading to speculation on improved low light mode or better smarts inside to 'interpret' what the phone is looking at and yielding a better picture.We're also expecting a longer screen with less bezel, aping the tradition of handsets in 2017 (including the Huawei Mate 10 Pro) by offering a larger viewing area in the same-sized footprint.We'll be on the ground at the Huawei press launch to bring you all the details in the meantime - so if you're feeling that the P20 could be your new handset we'll be bringing you first-hand experience of the new phone.

Just a few months after his DC debut with Justice League, Joss Whedon is leaving its cinematic universe.Whedon has confirmed he’s no longer writing or directing Batgirl, saying he “failed” to come up with a good story.According to The Hollywood Reporter, Whedon is stepping down from creating DC’s solo Batgirl film.Whedon’s involvement was announced back in March 2017, a few months before it was revealed that he was also doing reshoots on Justice League after Zack Snyder left the project.Since then, we hadn’t really heard much about Batgirl—which seemed surprising, considering it was touted as DC’s “second” female-led superhero film behind the critically and commercially acclaimed Wonder Woman.In a statement, Whedon said it’s because he couldn’t figure out what to make the movie about.

When an Oregon science fiction writer named Charity tried to log onto Facebook on February 11, she found herself completely locked out of her account.A message appeared saying she needed to download Facebook’s malware scanner if she wanted to get back in.And her experience is far from unique.For nearly four years, people have complained about Facebook's anti-malware scan on forums, Twitter, Reddit, and on personal blogs.The problems appear to have gotten worse recently.The malware scans likely only impact a relatively small population of Facebook's billions of users, some of whose computers may genuinely be infected.

Yesterday, federal prosecutors unsealed a new indictment against former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort.The indictment contains new evidence that Manafort hid millions of dollars in overseas income from US authorities, and it charges Manafort and his associate Richard Gates with numerous counts of tax and bank fraud.The indictment also suggests that Manafort's lack of technology savvy helped prosecutors build a case against Manafort and Gates.The pair allegedly submitted a variety of fraudulent documents to lenders in order to borrow money against properties purchased with overseas funds—funds that were never reported to the IRS.One reason prosecutors were able to build a paper trail against the pair: Manafort needed Gates's help to convert a PDF document to Word format and back again.In 2016, Manafort allegedly wanted to create a fake profit-and-loss statement for his company, Davis Manafort Partners, in order to inflate his income and qualify for a loan.
