The most effective horror movies offer a balanced mixture of gore, frights, and sly social commentary—and Get Out, a hit with both critics and audiences, does this better than most.But as director Jordan Peele explains, the movie’s crowd-pleasing ending wasn’t always what he had in mind for his film’s final act.Appearing on the Another Round podcast earlier this week, Peele was asked about Get Out’s alternate endings.If you’ve seen the movie, you know that the main character, Chris, manages to escape the racist clutches of his mind-and-body swapping captors after a hard-earned violent rampage and the perfectly-timed appearance of his best friend, Rod (LilRel Howery).However, Peele confirms that several much bleaker endings were originally considered, including ones in which Chris would be arrested for mass murder or even gunned down on the spot by the local police.The reason he ultimately decided against going in that direction: timing—and the changing level of awareness of the American public.

Jason Charles, a 39-year-old firefighter who lives in Manhattan, started prepping in 2010 after he read William Forstchen's "One Second After."Set in post-apocalyptic North Carolina, the book chronicles a man's efforts to keep his family alive.Charles immediately started amassing thousands of dollars worth of supplies — from canned goods to knives to first-aid kits — and wilderness skills, so he would be ready if a disaster hit the city."There was one part [in the book] when he says, 'I should've gotten more.I should've gotten more food,' and it got me thinking, I never want that to happen to my kids," Charles, who has a wife and three kids, tells Business Insider.Two years later, he became the president of the New York City Preppers Network, the local chapter of a national organization that promotes self-reliance in case a natural disaster, terrorist attack, or other unforeseen catastrophe strikes.Charles took us inside his Harlem apartment and storage unit, where he keeps his gear.

After weeks of rampant speculation, Blizzard has started dropping some major hints for the next hero coming to Overwatch.Fans and critics alike have begun to believe that not one, but two new heroes will be introduced in the near future as a part of the unfolding events in Numbani.These being Doomfist and Efi Oladele's robotic creation, both of which have been teased lately.The aforementioned map was recently updated on the PTR servers to reflect a news report posted on Blizzard’s social media accounts last week.Doomfist’s gauntlet is also missing from the map’s payload, with the glass suddenly shattered.This has been present in the game since it launched in May 2016, so Blizzard has been planning this for a while.

Men snäckornas form och de flexibla vingarna gör att de sitter riktigt bra och bekvämt – även när vi provocerar dem ordentligt i löpspåret.Bra skydd mot fukt (i olika form)Ett par sportlurars viktigaste egenskap, förutom att det ska låta någorlunda bra, är just passformen och att de skall tåla väta i form av vatten eller svett, och här hittar vi inget att anmärka på.Elementen har placerats så att de tål svett och regn och ett vattenavvisande tyg ska verka för att stänga ute fukt.Även knapparna på fjärrkontrollen är inkapslande i ett gummimaterial, vilket i och för sig förtar lite av den distinkta känslan, men ger ett fullgott skydd mot vädrets makter.För den summan bör man även kunna räkna hem en vettig app, men här känns det som att Bose snålat in ordentligt.

Sony makes really, really good cameras.The company’s professional series cameras are currently coveted by even grumpy old pros reluctant to upgrade, and its camera sensors are found not just in Sony products, but in many competitors, too.So its no surprise that for years the company makes a big show of playing up the cameras in its smartphones.The Xperia XZ Premium is the big brother upgrade to last year’s Sony Xperia XZ.Dubbing the technical system behind the camera “Motion Eye” Sony claims it can shoot photos faster than competitors and show slow-mo videos slower.The average smartphone, for reference, can only do 240fps.

While BlackBerry proper is no longer making its own hardware, BlackBerry phones aren’t dead for good.TCL, the Chinese tech firm that picked up the branding rights to the once-leading smartphone maker last year, on Saturday unveiled the BlackBerry KeyOne, a device that aims to win over BlackBerry diehards by slapping the company’s trademark physical keyboard onto a modern Android phone.We got a sneak peak at CES back when the device was going by its codename, “Mercury,” but TCL made the name, specs, and price official at the Mobile World Congress trade show in Barcelona this weekend.Here’s what’s new.

Earlier this month, NVIDIA continued to drive the company’s powerful Pascal GPU architecture down through its professional workstation graphics stack, with new that flesh-out the lineup from top to bottom.Having previously launched the high-end Quadro cards based on Pascal, in Q4, NVIDIA returned in February with both the new monster flagship Quadro GP100 card, as well the more moderately-priced Quadro P4000 and Quadro P2000.The Quadro GP100 is a full-fat implementation of Pascal, complete with 16GB of HBM2 memory and providing a whopping 20 TFLOPs of 16-bit precision floating point performance, along with the ability to combine two cards together for a contiguous 32GB of HBM2 frame buffer with NVIDIA’s NVLink technology.It’s still a little early for that card, with pricing TBD (though sure to be pricey), but , which, along with the GP100, are slated to ship sometime in March.The Quadro P4000 will retail in the $800 and $500 range, respectively, and take on AMD’s recently launched cards in the pro graphics mid-tier.Both of these cards are based on the same NVIDIA Pascal architecture with the same features and application certifications, though the P4000 is a more powerful card with 1792 CUDA Parallel Processing cores and 8GB of memory.

Securitybot sends a Slack message to employees if unusual or potentially malicious activity is detectedDropbox is aiming to solve the problem of alert fatigue with the release of an open source chatbot called Securitybot, which automatically collects alerts from security monitoring tools and verifies the incidents with employees.This combats the need for security teams to manually contact employees for verification when someone gains access to a sensitive part of the system, thus enabling them to sort through alerts faster and more efficiently.Built for Slack, Securitybot is tied into Dropbox s detection and alerting system to speed up the detection process by reducing the number of false positives and immediately escalating confirmed incidents.The bot looks out for unusual or potentially malicious activity and sends a Slack message to the employee in question if such activity is detected.The employee is asked to confirm whether they performed the action that triggered the alert and the response is logged for the security team.

Forty light-years away, a faint, dim, tiny star known as TRAPPIST-1 caught the fancy of a team of exoplanet hunters led by Michaël Gillon.Only a small fraction of stars have their planets aligned in such a way that we can see them, and even fewer have rocky, Earth-like worlds at the right distance to potentially have liquid water -- and life as we know it -- on them.But this particular star, as scientist Brian Koberlein reports, was discovered to have seven planets orbiting it.In order to be habitable, at least habitable like Earth is, a world needs to be:at the right distance from its star,and with the right amount of liquid water on its surface.

What may surprise some people, especially those living outside of the UK and Europe, is that I cannot remember a time in which card payments did not exist.As well as this, my mother having to sign receipts for purchases is a very distant childhood memory and has definitely become an annoyance for myself when I visit the U.S.It could be said that growing up in the urbanized Milton Keynes and more importantly, moving to the globalized city of London, has contributed to my interest in and natural tendency to become tech-friendly.Fintech to a 20-something Londoner, or any young city-dweller, in my opinion, is commonplace and pedestrian.Checking your bank account or transferring money across accounts using a cellphone application has become as easy as posting a Facebook status or ordering an Uber.This poses the question of why it has been so easy for the millennial generation to adapt and effectively use new systems and why there has not been a recently released financial technology product that has reached the heights of Uber, for example.

Things are finally starting to warm up for me in Sony's new PS4 open-world action game Horizon: Zero Dawn.After a long, tedious introduction to the game's post-apocalyptic world, which saw protagonist Aloy grow from a girl to a young woman through an extended assortment of tutorials, I'm finally free to go questing.Aloy is great and so are the coven of Matriarchs who rule her tribe, but many of the other characters are voiced horribly, from Rost, Aloy's adoptive father, to various other members of her tribe.I'm used to Sony games like Uncharted which offer superb acting.Climbing, zip-lining, fighting bad guys, all these things are slick and polished.I've climbed and zip-lined and collected and crafted in games like this before, from Tomb Raider to Far Cry to Uncharted.

Det gäller framför allt industrin, men även tjänstesektorn känner förändringens vinddrag.Andra är betydligt lugnare och ser att ungefär mellan 10 och 20 procent kommer att gå förlorade.Drar man frågan till sin spets handlar det om hur vi ska finansiera vår välfärd om robotarna tar våra jobb.Nyligen presenterade EU-parlamentet sitt förslag på civilrättsliga bestämmelser för robotteknik.I panelsamtal med såväl parlamentsledamöter som företrädare från universitet och fackliga organisationer diskuterades robotskatt.Kan det vara aktuellt att inför en skatt på robotar och det arbete de utför?

Back when Lucasfilm revealed the title of Star Wars Episode VIII, it's been debated over the exact meaning.Specifically if it's singular or plural since the word Jedi is like sheep and can mean both.Thankfully the official German title has revealed all.The official title, spotted by IGN Germany, is Die Letzten Jedi.If it meant a single Jedi Knight, the title would be Der Letzte Jedi.This means we don't have to get frustrated trying to figure out if it means Luke or Rey.
