Earlier this week we reported that customers who had preordered the SNES Classic from Walmart were experiencing order cancellations.Though the company hadn’t said anything official about the issue, emails were going out to customers advising them of the cancellation, and customer service reps were giving explanations that basically amounted to ‘the website glitched.’According to those representatives, the Walmart website allowed the SNES Classic preorders to go live earlier than it should have; they were quickly sold out of the model late last week after someone noticed the availability.By the start of this week, some users had experienced cancellations, but others still had live orders, resulting in frustration for those who lost their order.It has taken a few days, but it seems Walmart has finally put together an official statement about the issue, indeed confirming that it experienced a ‘technical glitch.’ If your order still hasn’t been cancelled, be prepared: Walmart says it is going to cancel all of those preorders, so you’ll have to try again later this fall when they officially go live.In a letter to customers, Walmart said, in part, that “due to a technical glitch, the Super Nintendo Classic Edition was mistakenly made available last Friday evening ahead of the official release date.

Adobe is killing Flash, the software that millions used in the early 2000s to play web games and watch video in their web browsers.The company announced the software was "end-of-life" in a blog post on Tuesday."Given this progress, and in collaboration with several of our technology partners – including Apple, Facebook, Google, Microsoft and Mozilla – Adobe is planning to end-of-life Flash.Specifically, we will stop updating and distributing the Flash Player at the end of 2020 and encourage content creators to migrate any existing Flash content to these new open formats."There is still lots of content on the web that uses Flash — it's still built into Google's desktop Chrome browser — so the software will be supported through 2020.This means that Flash, which has been criticized for being insecure, will continue to get security updates through 2020.

Not only are governments offering tempting incentives, but consumers are increasingly conscious of, and drawn to, environmentally-friendly companies.And as more companies go green, the technology becomes cheaper and more practical, making the economic case ever stronger.Here are six of the most exciting young businesses and start-ups seizing the moment and changing our world.These huge structures require major investment to convert wind power into electricity, which is then channelled into the national grid.Step forward NW (NewWind), a French company that uses ‘Aeroleaf’ technology to create the ‘Wind Tree’ – a wind turbine small enough to fit in your back garden.German company Green City Solutions has spent a lot of time thinking about how to improve urban air quality, a problem that continues to plague the world’s cities, with seven million people dying every year through air pollution according to the World Health Organisation.

Thermo Fisher have launched their first-ever public VR experience with the help of Spinning Clock.Two VR experiences for Oculus were launched at events earlier in the year; the Invitrogen Immunoassays scooter VR experience at Immunology 2017 in Washington DC and the Gibco Stem Cell Reprogramming VR experience at ISSCR 2017 in Boston.The agency designed both experiences, from asset creation and 3D modelling right through to coding for use on the Oculus.Spinning Clock created two fully immersive 3D environments, complete with voiceover, special effects and soundtrack.The first experience was a fun scooter ride through a futuristic science-themed city, while the second shrunk users down to microscopic size and transported them inside a cell to experience the stem cell reprogramming process.Lydia Osgood, project manager at Spinning Clock commented on the work: “It was a privilege to work with Thermo Fisher Scientific on their first ever public VR experience.

Consumers could save billions of pounds thanks to major changes in the way electricity is made, used and stored, the government has said.New rules will make it easier for people to generate their own power with solar panels, store it in car batteries and sell it to the National Grid.If they work consumers will save £17bn to £40bn by 2050, according to the government and energy regulator Ofgem.They will reduce costs for someone who allows their washing machine to be turned on by the internet to maximise use of cheap solar power on a sunny afternoon.And they will even support people who agree to have their freezers switched off for a few minutes to smooth demand at peak times.They'll also benefit a business that allows its air-conditioning to be turned down briefly to help balance a spell of peak energy demand on the National Grid.

Transportstyrelsen har skakats om rejält sedan det stod klart att känslig information från myndigheten läckt till utlandet.Allt började 2015 när IBM vann upphandlingen för att sköta Transportstyrelsens it-drift, en verksamhet som IBM valde att placera i Östeuropa vilket innebar att utländska aktörer fick åtkomst till Transportstyrelsens känsliga data.Dessa data innehåller bland annat information om alla fordon i Sverige och uppgifter från körkortsregistret, där det även finns information om människor som lever med skyddad identitet.Att detta hänt stod dock inte klart innan den sjätte juli då flera medier, däribland SVT, rapporterade om att Transportstyrelsens förra generaldirektör Maria Ågren, som slutat i januari, fått ett strafföreläggande på 70 000 kronor om vårdslöshet efter att hon gjort avsteg från lagstiftningen när det gäller åtkomsten till servrar och it-system.Enligt Säpos förundersökning ska Transportstyrelsen gett tjeckiska it-tekniker åtkomst till känsliga uppgifter då det uppstått tidspress efter att Trafikverket, som tidigare skötte driften, börjat säga upp personal.“Det handlade om att bevilja åtkomst (till it-tekniker, reds.

A young office worker’s grueling grind occurs entirely aboard a fantastical carousel in this musical, magical ad for Nestlé chocolate.Rather, it’s three stories high and consists of roomy compartments containing her apartment, her workplace, a fitness club, a subway car and other detailed, often crowded locations.And a quiet place to to savor some Nestlé treats, of course:“We saw a lot of people in social media saying they want to give up on the world, that there is no hope,” Rafael Donato, creative vice president at ad shop David São Paulo, tells AdFreak.“It’s easy to be overwhelmed with everything that’s happening.But chocolate gives you a great sensation—and while it doesn’t solve all the world’s problems, it does help you take a moment and deal with life.”

On UpVote this week, we’re joined by Matthew Taylor, who last week published his independent review of modern working practices in the UK – looking at, among other things, the hot topic of the tech-fuelled gig economy and its implications for workers.If the answer to that question is yes, do politicians have the appetite to bring in a new law?Or, should the government and companies that hire gig workers to carry out the services they offer to consumers through powerful apps do more within the current regulatory framework to protect the rights of people on flexible hours and low pay?In an — at times — heated exchange, Taylor, who is chief executive of the RSA and formerly served as top political strategy adviser to Tony Blair, explained why his "brilliant" proposal didn’t deserve the criticism it's received.Work in the UK: The British labour market is pretty strong and many developed countries would envy it.We've got historically low unemployment rates.

Soon you’ll be able to get your anime fix on the livestreaming platform Twitch, which just partnered with the anime hosting site Crunchyroll for a 5-day marathon starting on July 27.It also features channels for creative streams, like art and music, and it’s held successful non-gaming marathons before.In 2015, it streamed 403 episodes of Bob Ross’s The Joy of Painting, which drew 5.6 million viewers.Earlier this year, it broadcast Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood for 18 days.This is its first anime marathon, and according to Twitch’s director of emerging content marketing Annie Berrones, it’s expecting a warm response.“Anime content on Twitch always sparks a lot of positive feedback from our community given how gaming and anime culture have borrowed a lot from each other,” said Berrones in a statement.

Disney’s D23 Expo kicked off last night and io9's Germain Lussier was among the first to lay eyes on a detailed diorama—which attendees could only observe from a distance of three feet away—revealing what the Star Wars Land theme parks will look like when they open in 2019.Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Chairman Bob Chapek called the attractions “immersive new worlds,” and you can really see how that’s going to be the case, just looking at these photos.Chapek will reveal more about the new parks, opening in both Florida and California, during another presentation at D23 on Saturday.But for now... get a look at these incredible images from Germain.And there, here are even more, from Germain, as he took photos from left to right.Basically you can enter at one of three places, but from left to right, you come in through the woods, encounter some ships and the first right (the First Order vs. Resistance ride), then go into town, with a ton of buildings for shops, shows and food, and in the back right corner is the other ride, the Millennium Falcon.

The ill-fated Galaxy Note 7 was reborn, after undergoing major surgery, as the Galaxy Note ‘Fan Edition.’ Though this phone isn’t being sold in all regions, it is still making its way into many hands, and it begs the question: what, exactly, did Samsung change?We know the faulty batteries were swapped out with safe batteries, and now that the model is out in the wild, we’ve gotten our first detailed look at its innards.iFixit, the company that gently tears open smartphones of all sorts to see what makes them tick (and how easy they are to repair) recently disassembled the Galaxy Note Fan Edition.To no one’s surprise, the innards are identical to what iFixit found within the Galaxy Note 7, but with the one big exception: the battery is different and it is smaller.The refurbished version of the Galaxy Note 7 features a smaller and safer 3,200mAh battery, according to iFixit, but otherwise nothing has changed amongst the hardware.Buyers will find the same interface that you get with the newer Galaxy S8 and S8+ smartphones, so that’s a plus.

Did you know that US sanctions extend to the digital world too?DevOps darling Docker accidentally cut off the entire country of Ukraine earlier this week following an overzealous effort to enforce US sanctions against Russia.On Tuesday, the open platform's users based in the Eastern European country started posting to Docker's support forums complaining that they were hitting a block to Docker's AWS-powered download service.But the question remained as to why Docker had blocked its service in Ukraine.And the answer, it emerged a few hours later, was renewed sanctions placed against Russia for its annexation of Crimea, which used to be part of Ukraine, in 2014.Late last month, the US Congress voted to expand existing sanctions and it appears as though those started being applied following the meeting between US president Trump and Russian president Putin at the recent G20 summit.

CDW's got a pretty good deal right now for ultrawide curved display fans.The retailer's selling the 34-inch Acer XR341CK for $550.That's quite a drop from this monitor's initial $1,100 asking price back in 2015, and it's better than the best price you'll find elsewhere.For example, the going rate in Amazon's marketplace is about $150 more.The specs on Acer's ultrawide IPS panel are a mix of great and respectable.It has a 4ms response time, which is about what you'd expect on an IPS display.

Mittalaitteita valmistavan Vaisalan toimitusjohtaja Kjell Forsén kuvaa yhtiön osallistumista maailmannäyttelyyn Kazakstanin Astanassa "hyväksi matchiksi".Vaisala voi viedä maahan muun muassa sääosaamista."Heidän sääinfrastruktuurinsa on käytännössä lähes olematon, joten siellä on suuri potentiaali.Maassa on vaikeat sääolosuhteet: ankarat talvet, helteiset kesät, tulvia ja kuivia jaksoja", Forsén sanoo.Kazakstanissa toisin sanoen tarvitaan sään mittaamiseen ja ennustamiseen liittyvää teknologiaa.Yhtiöllä on maailmannäyttelyn Suomen paviljongissa esillä kaksi näyttöä: toinen kertoo reaaliajassa pääkaupunki Astanan ilmanlaadun ja toinen maapallon salamointitilanteen.
