Apple has offered an iMac with a staggering 5K-resolution display since 2014 and also has 4K iMacs available, yet its standalone Thunderbolt Display still sits at 1440p - plenty sharp, but certainly lesser by comparison.However, a refresh seems imminent: retailers are starting to show limited stock of the five-year-old monitor, and 9to5Mac's sources claim that a much-improved standalone option is coming soon.It's suggested to feature 5K resolution, pumping out 5120 x 2880 pixels of ultra-crisp sights, but there's another interesting element that's totally new to the line.Well, 5K resolution requires a lot of graphics muscle to run at a steady clip, and Apple's slim MacBooks might have trouble powering that resolution when plugged into the monitor.While that may ultimately drive up the price of the new 5K monitor, it means that Apple can continue to sell compatible laptops without top-tier GPUs within - which could save some money on that end of things.Given the thinning stock of the old Thunderbolt Display at retail stores, a WWDC reveal this month is suggested - so if you're planning to buy a Mac monitor, maybe wait a couple weeks and see what happens.

Facebook chief Mark Zuckerberg has just taken part in the first Facebook Live Q in space, speaking to three of the crew aboard the International Space Station, including Tim Peake.Live is the social network s live broadcasting feature that enables anyone with Facebook to stream live to the world.Peake appeared alongside Commander Tim Kopra and Jeff Williams as they answered questions from the Facebook founder and the social network s wider community on everything from playing with food in zero gravity and space ice cream to working out in order to maintain muscle mass and using social media in space.The astronauts also revealed that SpaceX, Elon Musk s galactic firm, had delivered a freezer of real ice cream to the station as a treat and that they were now rationing what remained.View photosMore Screenshot Peake described his excitement at seeing Earth in orbit for the first time upon his arrival in December, and how it was a basic piece of technology in space terms – the Soyuz rocket that got him to the station – that had most thrilled him on his trip so far.Kopra also explained that having internet access onboard the station was still a relatively new feature and while it isn t quite the same speed, it s good enough , adding that it was a blessing to be able to share his experiences with family and friends.

The premiere of the new, Chris Evans-led version of Top Gear was worth watching not necessarily for the show itself, but for an interesting piece of Ferrari news that slipped into the taping.Discussion quickly turned to Ramsay s LaFerrari hybrid supercar, but then Evans asked about another, future best car Ramsay might be taking delivery of soon.And they re doing a limited edition of the LaFerrari, Ramsay continued.The carmaker has an inner circle of particularly well heeled and loyal customers.Some media outlets are already accusing Top Gear of colluding with Ferrari, and that would be a major blow to the show s credibility if it proved true.Evans was quick to announce that this is the first proof we ve heard on a TV, radio, or a magazine that this car exists, although Ferrari has hinted at it before.

fotograf: Ada FredeliusTisdag 31 maj presenterade Trafikverket nya beräkningar för kostnader för att bygga höghastighetståg i Sverige, alternativt kostnaden för att i stället bygga ut stambanorna.Det säger Lena Erixon, generaldirektör på Trafikverket, som presenterade de nya beräkningarna.Nu presenterar de i stället bedömningen cirka 230 miljarder kronor, men med utrymme för att slutsumman kan bli antigen 30 miljarder kronor dyrare - eller biligare.I rapporten nämns följande åtgärder som bidragit till att sänka den förväntade kostnaden:* Andelen landbroar kan minskas.* Krav på reducering av buller kan uppfyllas med 2,5 meter höga bullerskärmar.* Tunnlar ska utföras med betonglining med öppen botten.

Luca Todesco har visat upp en ny metod för att jailbreaka IOS 9.3.2, det vill säga göra det möjligt att installera appar som inte har godkänts av Apple.Så här ser det ut:Som synes räcker det med att besöka en speciell webbsida för att genomföra proceduren, något som påminner om den populära Jailbreakme-metoden som användes för IOS 4.3.3 en gång i tiden.Det bör avslutningsvis påpekas att Todesco är tveksam till att släppa sitt jailbreak till allmänheten, särskilt som IOS 9.3.3 betatestas för fullt.

ColourboxSaksalainen lentoyhtiö Lufthansa ilmoitti keskeyttävänsä lennot Venezuelaan kesäkuun 18. päivästä lähtien johtuen Venezuelan vakavista taloudellisista ongelmista.Lufthansan mukaan Venezuelan pääomarajoitukset ovat tehneet lentoyhtiöille mahdottomaksi muuttaa tienestään dollareiksi ja lähettää rahaa ulkomaille, kertoo BBC.Venezuelan talous on kokenut suuria iskuja öljyn hinnan pudottua, sillä öljy on maan päätulonlähde.Venezuela kärsii korkeasta inflaatiosta sekä vakavasta perustarvikkeiden pulasta.Lufthansa ilmoitti tiedotteessa, että kansainväliset lennot Venezuelaan ovat pudonneet vuonna 2015 sekä tämän vuoden ensimmäisellä neljänneksellä.Lufthansa sanoi kuitenkin toivovansa, että lennot voidaan ottaa taas käyttöön lähitulevaisuudessa.

She believed she d made a series of legitimate loans to the offshore oil business of a Florida businessman she d met at a dating site - when in truth she had been victimized by an organized crime gang in Africa.Her six-figure losses were nearly 30 times higher than the average loss $8,421 reported last year to IC3, but she never received a follow-up call or any notification from law enforcement indicating that they were investigating - or were even interested in - her claim.My client knocked, and waited, but it seemed nobody was home.In terms of broader analyses, there are serious shortcomings in relying on self-reported complaints to describe the full extent of online crime, because many victims don t realize they have been attacked.Consumer-focused crimes like advance-fee frauds, fake lotteries, and social media scams are rampant.By that basis, IC3 data - with 288,000 total complainants - represent less than 0.2 percent of all incidents and victims.

SAN FRANCISCO—Following a two-week trial, a federal jury concluded Thursday that Google's Android operating system does not infringe Oracle-owned copyrights because its re-implementation of 37 Java APIs is protected by "fair use."The verdict ends the trial, which began earlier this month.Four of the ten jurors declined to comment to reporters gathered in the hallway."We're grateful for the jury's verdict," said Google lead lawyer Robert Van Nest before getting into the elevator with Google's in-house lawyers.During the trial, Oracle argued that Google copied parts of Java API packages as well as related declaring code, in order to take a "shortcut at Oracle's expense."Google presented its case first; it has the burden of proof since its defense is limited to "fair use."

Unfortunately, where Fallout 4 is concerned, familiarity has become part of its lasting legacy.A meant-to-be-emotionally-charged offhand reference to the son I ignored for close to 40 hours and eventually shot in the main game aside, the breadcrumb trail to the expansion's island setting and its slow, gloomy boat-ride reveal is genuinely refreshing.The town's opposing faction – the returning nut-case cult the Children of Atom – fare better and the brief supernatural elements complement the island's foggy, ghoulish aesthetic.The religious group's home, a derelict submarine called The Nucleus, houses a few sympathetic residents, casting the band of misfits as more than simple indoctrinated weirdos.Aside from a notable excursion into possibly the best Fallout vault ever no really, it's almost worth the cost price alone and a few notable loot drops, there really is little to recommend about Far Harbor and that's without even dwelling on the unforgivably bad frame-rate on console when you catch even a slight glimpse of whispy fog, or the aggressively boring 'virtual reality' Minecraft-meets-tower-defence puzzle section at the mid-way point.It's more Fallout 4 for those in desperate need of further adventures in the wasteland and completing the multitude of fetch-this/kill-that side-quests brings the total run-time to at least the 10 hour mark, but the Far Harbor expansion exists as a disappointing microcosm of the core failings of its parent game, where shallow storytelling, graphical glitches and formulaic design top a list of 'it's good if you can ignore' caveats that's now too lengthy to forgive.

It expands an existing partnership and will help Salesforce expand internationallyA Salesforce.com logo on the front of the Moscone Center in San Francisco.Salesforce has named Amazon Web Services its preferred public cloud provider for services like Sales Cloud, Service Cloud and App Cloud, expanding an existing partnership to provide the backend for the software-as-a-service provider.The news means that Amazon, already the public cloud leader, will be getting money from one of the biggest success stories in the SaaS market."There is no public cloud infrastructure provider that is more sophisticated or has more robust enterprise capabilities for supporting the needs of our growing global customer base," he said in a statement.Of course, it would be strange for Salesforce to bet on Microsoft Azure.While it's partnered with the Redmond-based company in some areas, the two compete against each other in the CRM market.

Less than a week after hearing about Google s voice-controlled home assistant, The Information says that Apple has a similar inclination.The Cupertino company will reportedly open up the Siri API to third-party developers in the near future and will eventually make its own Amazon Echo rival.Like the Echo, Apple s hardware variant will be equipped with a speaker and microphone that people can use to turn on music, get news headlines or set a timer, according to The Information.For years, people have been looking forward to the seemingly inevitable merger of HomeKit Apple s smart home ecosystem and Apple TV as the brain of your smartphone.Although HomeKit has been around for almost two years now, it s still basically a heaping pile of untapped potential with only a few devices in the market even taking advantage of the smart home framework.The Information s anonymous source says that third-party integration with Siri will be coming in the short term while any new hardware would likely need more time in the oven.

Warcraft Movie Review RoundupAfter spending years in development hell, the Warcraft movie is finally coming to theaters early next month.Featuring quite possibly the largest budget ever for a movie based on a video game, Warcraft is likely expected to counteract years of misguided attempts to bring popular game franchises to the big screen.SEE ALSO: Watch Chewbacca mom take James Corden to work and freak out meeting J.J. AbramsBefore we jump straight into the negative, let s take a look at some of the less critical reviews from critics who found something to enjoy during their viewings.Variety s Geoff Berkshire was far less forgiving, and his review features my personal favorite quote about the movie that I ve read so far: Boasting more than 2,000 visual effects shots, it s dispiriting to think about the time, energy, planning and precision that went into Warcraft when the final product brings to mind those animated advertisements for iPhone app games.Finally, we have a gamer s perspective from Jason Schreier at Kotaku.On the other hand, if you were expecting director Duncan Jones to spark a renaissance for video game movies, you re likely in for a major disappointment.
