Subheadings included “‘It’s very pretty up here … a fine, soft surface’” and, of course, “A giant leap for mankind.”One leap forward, three steps back.That newspaper was dated fifty years ago today, as I type this.Apollo 17 — “the most recent time humans have travelled beyond low Earth orbit” — took place in December 1972, a date at which a large majority of humanity today was not yet born.It is the stuff of history books, of yesteryear, of scratchy black-and-white TV, of that yellowing newspaper cover of my youth.I mean, lots, but ultimately the costs were too high, the tangible benefits too nonexistent, and the Space Shuttle was too much of an unmitigated disaster from start to finish in every way.
After all, we’re dumping loads of cash into the hardware so we can get the most immersive experience possible.But there’s always some type of hiccup, whether it’s a fault in the game itself, issues stemming from hardware, and so on.You’ve seen a game setting called “Vsync” that supposedly fixes this issue.First, we will cover your monitor’s refresh rate followed by the output of your PC.Movies, TV shows, and games are nothing more than a sequence of images.James Cameron initially targeted 60Hz with Avatar 2 but dropped the rate down to 48Hz.
Thor: Love and Thunder has just been announced at Comic-Con, along with a host of other Marvel movies at Comic-Con.It will the fourth movie in the series and, like a greatest hits album, will bring back Natalie Portman alongside Chris Hemsworth, plus Tessa Thompson and director Taika Waititi when it TH4R (as the internet has rightly deemed it) arrives in theaters Nov. 5, 2021.The film, Waititi says, is inspired by his recent readings of The Mighty Thor series and female Mighty Thor.Yes, that's right, Portman will BE LADY THOR.Once she appeared onstage, Waititi handed Portman Moljinir in the delightfully ceremonial way seen above, offering her the hammer on his knees.Portman did not appear in Thor: Ragnarok, but appears to be returning with a newfound sense of worthiness as Lady Thor.
DC Comics' own group of misfit superheroes in Doom Patrol might not get the adoration they deserve from the public, but they have their own live-action show on the DC Universe streaming service and it's just been renewed for a second season.The show's renewal was announced Saturday night during the DC Universe panel at San Diego Comic-Con 2019.Doom Patrol is a reimagining of superhero outcasts Robotman (played by Brendan Fraser), Negative Man (Matt Bomer), Elasti-Woman (April Bowlby) and Crazy Jane (Diane Guerrero), who are led by scientist Dr. Niles Caulder, also known as the Chief (Timothy Dalton).In the series, the Doom Patrol members suffered horrible accidents that gave them superhuman abilities but left them physically and emotionally scarred.But this team of heroes found their purpose through the Chief, who brought them together to investigate weird threats against humanity.Following the mysterious disappearance of the Chief, the heroes find themselves called to action by Cyborg (Joivan Wade), who comes to them with a special mission.
It’s a hallmark of Comic-Con International that Marvel Studios honcho Kevin Feige will take the stage and announce a huge slate of films—essentially laying out huge chunks of what will be hitting theaters in the coming years.Only this time, not everything he hyped will see the inside of a multiplex.That means that, in addition to huge highly anticipated movies like Eternals and a new Thor flick—now with the great subtitle Love and Thunder—the next phase of the MCU will have WandaVision, an original series where Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany reprise their roles as Scarlet Witch and Vision, and Loki, about, well, Loki.Also on the menu: Hawkeye, which will introduce female archer Kate Bishop, What If…?, which will present alternate realities of events in the MCU, and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, which follows Sam Wilson and Bucky Barnes’ adventures after Avengers: Endgame.It’s an amazing lineup, especially when you consider that all of the big movie stars are reprising their roles for the smaller screen.The actually cinematic Marvel Cinematic Universe is clearly going into wildly different directions with movies like The Eternals, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, and Thor: Love and Thunder, which will introduce Natalie Portman’s Jane Foster as the new Female Thor.
There’s the one where we click through interfaces and hit menu buttons and dive down predictable lines of inquiry and find predictable ends.What intrigues me here is that a few days ago Instagram announced that it was further rolling out a test to hide like counts from users and that it has been further minimizing the prominence of follower counts on profiles.It’s an (admittedly small) step in the evolution but it hinges a bit more on how internet giants have come to realize UX transparency can actually lead to some negatives.There’s of course the ethical argument where you think about the responsibility that Facebook has not to make people feel shitty about themselves by offering a dopamine-hit conveyor belt as a platform, but a more fascinating idea is what a change like this opens up to the company in terms of returns and what it means for how platforms portray the nebulous idea of “engagement.”One of the easy returns I bet Instagram finds as they expand this test is that by eliminating the conforming social pressures inherent to seeing what other users are enjoying, Instagram might paint a clearer picture of its users.Without giving users a groupthink crutch to influence their own decisions on what to click the heart button on, a web of content less-focused on stats might lead them to things that actually break into.
In between MCU Phase 4 reveals for Marvel Studios' films like Black Widow, Thor 4 and Shang-Chi, the first Marvel television shows destined for the Disney Plus streaming service were detailed Saturday at San Diego Comic-Con 2019.Marvel's WandaVision, starring Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany, will have a multiverse aspect which will directly tie into 2021's Doctor Strange: In The Multiverse of Madness.The show will also include an adult Monica Rambeau, first seen as a child in Captain Marvel, played by Teyonah Parris.WandaVision is set to debut on Disney Plus in spring 2021.Coming a bit sooner than that will be The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, starring Anthony Mackie, Sebastian Stan and Daniel Brühl.A new logo for the show includes an aspect of Captain America's design, possibly confirming that we'll pick up with Falcon essentially being the new cap.
Several Black Mirror episodes focus on virtual reality and its implication for the future of society and technology.But what about an actual Black Mirror VR experience?The entire show is built on the idea of what negative (and sometimes positive) effects advanced technology, especially that of the simulation variety, could have on us as people and some of its best episodes are squarely focused on VR.In an interview with Deadline, series creator and writer Charlie Brooker mentioned the possibility of seeing future iterations of Bandersnatch and other Black Mirror episodes getting the VR treatment.“Going forward I hope you’ll find that interactive becomes another genre, or approach, or style [of storytelling] along the lines of a musical,” he said.“… “I actually had an idea for a VR port of ‘Bandersnatch,’ which you could do very easily,” Brooker hinted.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe is about to get a new superstar.Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings is joining the MCU's Phase 4 slate of films, as revealed Saturday at the Marvel Studios San Diego Comic-Con 2019 panel.Newcomer Simu Liu is set to star as Shang-Chi, and will be the Asian lead in a Marvel movie to date.Awkwafina, who we seen most recently in The Farewell will also star alongside Tony Leung.Destin Daniel Cretton is set to direct a script written by Dave Callaham.Shang-Chi will be the third film for Marvel's fourth phase, coming right after Eternals, and will see Shang-Chi facing off against the Ten Rings organisation introduced in Iron Man.
Fifty years later, to the day, I did this moon landing virtual reality thing at San Diego Comic Con.Which feat is more impressive?I don't know, I'm not a scientist.The firm, which is based in both Beijing and Miami, set up a VR simulation that lets people feel like they are on a lunar mission.You can fiddle with controls and pull levers.While walking down narrow hallways of docking bays and moving up and down on elevators, the sense of motion feels realistic.

"Avengers: Endgame" is expected to dethrone "Avatar" as the highest-grossing movie of all time by the end of the weekend, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige said on Saturday.Disney, which owns Marvel Studios, owns the "Avatar" franchise after the Fox merger and is releasing four sequels in the coming years.Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories."Avengers: Endgame" is expected to surpass James Cameron's "Avatar" this weekend and snag the record for the biggest global box-office gross of all time, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige announced on Saturday at San Diego Comic-Con."Avatar" held the record for a decade with $2.79 billion, and it seemed out of "Endgame's" reach before Disney rereleased the movie last month."Endgame" was only $500,000 behind "Avatar" as of Friday, and will top it by the end of the weekend, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
It finally happened: Avengers: Endgame has dethroned Avatar as the moneyest movie of all time.Marvel chief Kevin Feige and team announced the milestone at San Diego Comic-Con late Saturday afternoon.During a Marvel panel, Feige also announced movie release dates for phase 4 of the MCU."To the greatest fans in the universe, from the bottom our our hearts ... thank you," the Russo brothers, who directed the film, tweeted Saturday evening.Avatar, released in December 2019, held the international box office record for almost a decade with $2,787,965,087 since 2010, having earned the top spot by passing Titanic's previous record of $1.9 billion after just 41 days in theaters.It took Avengers: Endgame a little over three months to beat Avatar's record.
Google Chrome 76, scheduled to roll out on July 30, will fix a loophole that allows websites to detect visitors who are Incognito Mode, a move that will affect how publishers implement paywalls for their content.In a blog post, Google said that some websites have been taking advantage of an unintended loophole involving Chrome’s FileSystem API.When in Incognito Mode, the API is disabled so that people will not leave traces of activity.Websites have been checking for the availability of the API, and if they do not find it, they determine that Incognito Mode is activated.In Chrome 76, the behavior of the FileSystem API will be changed to prevent the Incognito Mode detection.Google also expressed its commitment to the principles of private browsing by saying that it will fix any other means of Incognito Mode detection.
