With every new Steam sale comes lamentations from players who acknowledge they already own more games than they can play, and that they’re going to buy even more titles they’ll probably never finish.In light of that reality, Steam has announced a new event called Spring Cleaning that encourages players to dust off those old forgotten games, offering them rewards in exchange for playing what they already own.The Steam Spring Cleaning event kicked off today (Friday, May 24) and will run through May 28 at 10AM PDT / 1PM EDT.During that time, Steam customers can earn badges in exchange for completing event tasks, such as playing a game they’ve previously played for two hours, but haven’t played in a while.Steam will refresh these tasks every day, and they’re joined by event projects, which are only completed once.Players must earn five trophies via these tasks and projects in order to unlock a profile badge.
Stress isn’t a fleeting emotion for many, but rather a persistent reality with a very real impact on one’s physical and mental health.When left unchecked, high levels of the stress can lead to long-term health issues, including obesity and high blood pressure.In the future, a new study reveals, determining whether your body is in a stressed state may be as simple as swabbing the inside of your cheek.Stress, which can have a huge number of causes, results in physiological changes that may have a negative impact on one’s immediate and long-term health.Chronic stress has been linked to a large number of health problems, including sleep disruption that itself leads to other problems.Determining whether your body is in a stressed state isn’t simple, however.
Few places summon the trolls like movie reviews.After suffering through multiple cases of review-bombing – when trolls flood in with disproportionate negative reviews – Rotten Tomatoes wants to weed out the people who haven’t actually, you know seen the movie.Specifically, users will now be required to verify their ticket purchase for their votes to be counted in the new Audience Score:“Rotten Tomatoes now features an Audience Score made up of ratings from users we’ve confirmed bought tickets to the movie – we’re calling them “Verified Ratings.” We’re also tagging written reviews from users we can confirm purchased tickets to a movie as “Verified” reviews.”Currently, you can verify you’ve seen a movie if you’ve purchased a ticket through Fandango, but AMC, Regal, and Cinemark have signed up to participate.To be clear, you can still review a movie even if you’re not verified.
Apple has reportedly acquired Tueo Health, a startup that was developing an asthma monitoring system intended for use with sleeping children.The alleged business move may have happened in late 2018, at least based on a new report citing an unnamed source with knowledge of the matter.The acquisition may hint at a future addition to Apple’s own health efforts.Apple has not confirmed the alleged acquisition, which was leaked by CNBC.According to the report, someone with knowledge about the alleged business deal tipped that happened, but apparently didn’t provide any additional details, including when the transition occurred and what it cost Apple.The report points out that Tueo Health’s co-founder Bronwyn Harris and the company’s then-COO Anura Patil changed their LinkedIn profiles’ respective employment details from Tueo to Apple in late 2018.
It’s pocket-sized, shoots in VR, 360, and 5K formats, and it costs around the same as an entry-level DSLR.But I’m neither a filmmaker nor a professional photographer.There’s only a handful of consumer-geared VR cameras out there (that don’t cost thousands) and none of them have struck me as particularly approachable for the average person.I was incredibly surprised to find the camera is sturdy, well-made, and attractive.At under $500, I was expecting some corners to get cut.The camera feels and looks like a premium device and comes with more bells and whistles than you’d expect.
AT made a surprising announcement today: its customers can now pay their bills using cryptocurrency.The option is made possible by AT’s new BitPay support, opening the door for bill pay using Bitcoin instead of cash or credit.By adding the support, AT has become the first major wireless carrier in the United States to accept cryptocurrency payments.Despite its volatility, a number of companies have started accepting payments in the form of Bitcoin, the most popular of all cryptocurrencies.Earlier this month, a number of retailers announced plans to accept cryptocurrency payments through a mobile wallet called SPEDN, including Whole Foods, Crate and Barrel, Bed Bath & Beyond, and more.Whereas SPEDN is a new arrival on the market, BitPay is an established platform used by many companies willing to access money in the form of cryptocurrency, and now AT is counted among them.

In the game of thrones, you win, you die, or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain.Here’s one character’s journey from the beginning to the end of HBO’s Game of Thrones.Daenerys Targaryen sought to free the world from cruelty and tyranny, but ended up turning into the very problem she sought to change.Eventually, she paid the price for it.Daenerys Stormborn of House Targaryen, First of Her Name, Queen of the Andals and the First Men, Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea, Breaker of Chains, and Mother of Dragons...is no more.After eight seasons, Daenerys finally crossed the Narrow Sea and took the Seven Kingdoms.
Apple is on the verge of perfecting the low profile keyboard, and so far, it’s only taken them three tries and an endless repair programme to get here.The fourth attempt can be seen in the latest version of the MacBook Pro, which our friends at iFixit recently tore down.The key design in this generation of very expensive laptops is new.The new generation of Apple’s low profile, “butterfly” MacBook key design looks an awful lot like the previous problematic generation except for a few subtle differences.While the third generation of this key design added a foggy, tacky, silicone-like membrane to protect the switch mechanism, the newest butterfly key design features a transparent, smooth material.The previous generation of MacBook Pro keys (left) has a foggy silicone membrane, while the new generation (right) has a smooth, transparent membrane.
Some Fortnite players are currently experiencing issues logging into their game accounts, making it impossible to play the hit battle royale game.Epic Games, the company behind the title, has acknowledged the reports, stating the problem is currently impacting all platforms on which Fortnite is offered.The company has updated the game’s status to reflect the problem and has been investigating the matter for more than an hour.Epic confirmed the login issue in a tweet published around 4PM ET on Friday, May 24.In its short note, the company said, ‘We’re aware that players may be unable to login across all platforms.We’re investigating the issue now and will update when we have more information.’
Apple didn’t just improve the processors within its existing MacBook Pro models, but apparently the company has also improved the keyboards that these refreshed laptops offer, teardown site iFixit has learned.And, with a high price comes an expectation of high quality.But, for the last several years, Apple's MacBooks have had keyboard issues with missed and repeated key presses.They've been a result of the Butterfly keyboards used in MacBooks from the 12-inch version to the MacBook Pro.Apple has worked to address the issue in the past, making iterative changes to the butterfly keyboards, but the problems persisted.Apple even issue an apology over the keyboard failures many have experienced, and it went so far as extending its keyboard repair program to cover all MacBooks with Butterfly keyboards recently.
That bipedal humanoid robot is named Digit.Agility Robotics announced an ambitious partnership yesterday with Ford to tackle the most labour-intensive portion of package delivery: the so-called “last mile” from small, local warehouses to their end destination.Where Digit supposedly comes in is what Ford CTO Ken Washington called “the last 50 feet”—from a vehicle to the actual doorstep.Last mile has become a war zone in recent years, as e-commerce has grown and labour norms have eroded.The pressure of contractor-model delivery has even led to discussions of two-tier systems that include contingent and unionised workers to do similar work at the same company.Of course, automation is considered less of a moonshot than an eventual path to better margins for the CEOs running these companies—with Uber notably relying on AVs as a means to reduce overhead (see: pay for drivers) in the near future, and Amazon feeling optimistic about its investment in self-driving car startup Aurora.
Back in 2010, scientists were monitoring a shark population on the border between the US states of Mississippi and Alabama.They had hauled up a small tiger shark to tag when something strange happened: It puked up feathers.A DNA analysis revealed that the shark had eaten a brown thrasher, a speckled migratory songbird related to the mockingbird.Further analysis revealed that this wasn’t just an isolated incident—a significant percentage of shark stomach contents revealed the remains of common backyard birds, and, surprisingly, only one species of waterbird.The study, published in the journal Ecology, demonstrates that food webs are more complex than you might think, and might even offer predictions about shark behaviour.Scientists analysed tiger shark stomach contents from 2010 to 2018, and found bird remains every year except for 2014, in 41 of the 105 sharks examined.

Welcome to TNW Basics, a collection of tips, guides, and advice on how to easily get the most out of your gadgets, apps, and other stuff.One of the advantages Android has over iOS is the control Google gives you over its operating system.Case in point is Android’s ‘developer options,’ a secret menu that provides all sorts of useful controls, including the ability to change animation speeds, choose a Bluetooth codec, or limit the number of apps that can run in the background – among many other thingsThe only problem is the menu is hidden by default.Whether this is your first time accessing Android’s developer options or just need a quick refresher, here’s how to activate it.First, open your device’s Settings app, and tap on the ‘About phone‘ menu.
The reality of Huawei’s uphill struggle is becoming clear, the implications of the US ban on American companies working with the Chinese telecoms firm exposing its dependence on the West – even as President Trump undermines his own argument for it.What began with Huawei being blocked from using key Android apps, services, and technologies has snowballed into a potentially business-shattering firewall that leaves the Chinese company out in the cold.Despite protestations that the situation wasn’t as bad as portrayed, Huawei’s position is looking increasingly shaky.Already, carriers have moved to hold the phone-maker at arm’s length.Citing concerns around the long-term stability and security of its devices, two UK carriers announced earlier this week that they would no longer be including Huawei’s 5G phones in their roll-out of next-generation networks.Losing access to the full version of Android that many are familiar with – including Google’s own custom apps for Gmail, YouTube, and the Google Play store, among others – could, theoretically, be dealt with.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued its first approval for a gene therapy treatment targeting young children.The gene therapy is called Zolgensma, and it is designed to treat the rare genetic disease spinal muscular atrophy in children under the age of two.The FDA’s Acting Commissioner Ned Sharpless called the approval a ‘milestone’ for gene therapy.Spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) is the rare result of a genetic mutation involving the survival motor neuron 1 gene.In the most common (and severe) cases, SMA onset starts during infancy, with symptoms appearing by the age of only six months old.The motor neuron problems caused by SMA result in severe complications, including trouble breathing and swallowing.
