The recently announced $670 OnePlus 7 Pro is available to buy now, but it's the priciest OnePlus phone to date.The OnePlus 6T is still a fantastic smartphone that costs $120 less than the OnePlus 7 Pro.Keep the price difference between the two phones in mind when you consider what the OnePlus 7 Pro has compared to the OnePlus 6T.The OnePlus 6T runs on an older chip than the OnePlus 7 Pro — the Snapdragon 845 versus the Snapdragon 855, respectively.The older Snapdragon 845 from 2018 is still a workhorse.Coupled with OnePlus' lightweight Oxygen OS interface that runs on top of Android, and the fact that the OnePlus 6T comes with 8 GB of RAM, the OnePlus 6T is still an extremely capable smartphone.

Loyal to the Chinese manufacturer’s “flagship killer” philosophy, the phone packed best-in-class specs at a price much lower than its flagship counterparts – a compelling reason not to fork out a thousand dollars just for a new phone.Android phones may be cheaper than reliable iPhones, but we need them to last more than a couple of months to make it worth it.I don’t have a timer to test it out, but there is no noticeable lag, and it can handle a whole bunch of heavy apps – from games to editing tools – confidently, without issues.Equipped with 8GB RAM and a beefy SnapDragon 845, it was the arguably the fastest and most powerful phone on the market in time last year.Camera is now better with third-party helpOnePlus is certainly trading blows with the big boys when it comes to performance, but its always trailed a little in the camera department.

Alongside news of the Rescue Rangers film, the Hollywood Reporter dropped one more bombshell last night, in the form of a well-sourced rumour about the future of Matt Reeves’ The Batman movie: in particular, its villains.According to the report, Reeves is still working on his script, but it’s said to have, at this stage of development, at least two villains: The Penguin and another mystery villain.Catwoman is also rumoured to play a role in the story, though whether it’s as a villain or something more complicated is not known.The Penguin hasn’t seen a big-screen adaptation since Batman Returns in the early nineties, so he would make an interesting choice.Though it’d also be lovely to see a villain or two we’ve never seen before.The Batman is roughly scheduled for a 2021 release, and Robert Pattinson is apparently in the lead for the headline role.

I’ve got a bad feeling about thisFrom the beginning of the game, however, something feels amiss.Everything is standard fare—you move a few spaces, interact with a randomized market of goods and services, and finally conclude your turn with an encounter specific to the planet you’ve landed upon.I’ve flown the Verse in Firefly: The Board Game, I’ve taken odd jobs and hunted NPCs in Xia: Legends of a Drift System, and I’ve managed my relationship status with sovereign nations and military entities in Merchants & Marauders.This causes more congestion as you collide with NPC patrols, though it can also result in frustration as the only available jobs require you travel to the other side of the rim with no shortcut.More impactful is the claustrophobic atmosphere this board creates, which severely blunts the “vastness of space” feel.

To ride a bus, you first must know where the bus is going and where it stops.“We wanted to do something to help reduce traffic, help the environment, help people get around in something cheaper than taxis or than having a car, because some people can't afford one,” says Yara Nassar, now a former AUB student with Yalla Bus.They visited the owners of the bus fleets that operate in the city, and convinced them to allow the startup to mount GPS trackers on their vehicles.Last month, after two years of work, Yalla Bus rolled out its bus map online.A civic tech group at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology says more than half of the world’s big cities lack transportation maps.In the past five years, volunteer mapping enthusiasts in cities including Cairo; [Managua], Nicaragua (https://www.mapanica.net/); Amman, Jordan; Nairobi, Kenya; and Addis Ababa, Ethiopia have taken to routes all over their cities to put what already exists onto paper, or into computer data, to be crunched or analyzed.

Prince Harry won a legal dispute with Splash News, a photo agency which used a helicopter to take pictures inside his home.This is an unexpected application of data law, which is more commonly thought of as governing large online databases and spammy mailing lists.It opens a new avenue in the royal family's never-ending struggle to keep parts of their lives out of the public eye.Prince Harry this week notched another victory in the royal family's long-running battle with paparazzi photographers, securing a "substantial payout" from an agency which used a helicopter to take pictures inside a house he was renting.Potentially even more interesting than that is the way in which he won his battle — basing a legal case partly on a sweeping new European data law that is less than a year old.According to a statement delivered to London's High Court on Thursday, in which the paparazzi agency Splash News apologized to Harry, also known as the Duke of Sussex (emphasis ours):

Charlie Brown and Snoopy go to the MoonPart One Today marks the 50th anniversary of Apollo 10, the mission that would do pretty much everything except land on the Moon.Flushed with success following Apollo 9's shakedown of the Lunar Module in Earth orbit (despite a poorly astronaut for much of the trip), NASA pressed ahead with the first mission to send the complete Apollo stack – Command and Service Module (CSM) and Lunar Module (LM) – into orbit around the Moon and take the LM out for a jaunt.Unlike Apollo 9, Apollo 10 was made up entirely of veteran astronauts, all of whom had spent time squeezed into the cramped confines of the Gemini capsule.With nothing with which to dock, NASA ended up launching 6A on 15 December 1965 to rendezvous with the Gemini 7 of Frank Borman and Jim Lovell, who had been "enjoying" a lengthy spell in their capsule following a 4 December launch into orbit.Stafford later commented that had Schirra done so, the pure oxygen atmosphere would have sent the 'nauts out like "two Roman candles".

This summer, Amazon will launch a number of warehouses designed specifically to hold hazardous materials, such as the bear mace that caused some of its employees grief last year.The company has been developing these facilities for months, it confirmed in a recent report, including a 500,000sqft fulfillment center that will open in Mississippi in coming weeks.These facilities will be home to products that range from common cleaning agents to nail polish.Amazon confirmed plans to open warehouses dedicated to hazardous materials, telling Wired that it began developing the facilities before a bear mace incident last December that sent several employees to the hospital.The development kicked off with an 80,000sqft test facility in Virginia, the company said, paving the way for the 500,000sqft Mississippi facility it will launch this summer.The facilities are ‘specially engineered’ for these risky products, which can include things like flammable items, potentially troublesome aerosols, cleaning agents, and other similar items.

Gather around, friends, because we have pricing for GMC's totally awesome Carbon Pro-edition Sierra 1500 models and once we tell you how much it costs, you'll likely need a hug.Before we get to the price, though, we should say that the 2019 GMC Sierra 1500 Carbon Pro editions are available on Denali and AT4 trucks anyway, so these bad boys are loaded, and the Carbon Pro trim piles even more cool stuff on top of that (other than the bed itself).OK, are you settled in?The 2019 GMC Sierra 1500 Denali CarbonPro edition will retail for $70,020 and the AT4 CarbonPro edition will set you back $66,635.Now that we've ripped the bandage off, what exactly are you getting for that sizable outlay of quiche?And really, the CarbonPro package is only around $4,000 more than a similarly equipped truck with a steel bed.

At Google I/O 2019, Google announced it was renaming the Google Home Hub smart display to be the Google Nest Hub while also combining the two brands into a presumably more harmonious single entity.Now Google wants Nest users to better understand what’s happening.And yesterday, Google posted another blog further clarifying what’s going with its big smart home migration, so here’s a quick rundown of what Nest owners should know before their devices stop getting new features.So what’s going on with Nest accounts?This also holds true for any Nest devices reliant on the Works with Nest support in order to talk with other smart home devices outside of the Google/Nest ecosystem like an Amazon Echo.However, starting August 31st, 2019, Google will stop accepting new Works with Nest connections, which means if you haven’t tried to set up cross-platform smart home integration by then, you may be temporarily out of luck.

Peter Parker lives a pretty cool life – one that gets a bit cooler in Spider-Man: Far From Home (even if he doesn’t want it to) when superspy Nick Fury shows up and gives him a mission.The endeavour gives Peter a new costume to play with... one that, at first, the team behind the movie made look almost too cool for someone who’s also a bit of a dork.Gifted to Peter by Nick after the former is roped into the latter’s investigation of mysterious elemental monsters appearing all over Marvel’s post-Endgame Earth, the “Stealth Suit” seen in Far From Home is two things to Peter.Firstly, it’s a way for him to operate in Nick’s world of subterfuge without recognisably being “Spider-Man” during his time as a civilian in Europe with his school friends.Secondly, as we learned on the set of Far From Home last year, it’s a design that strips Peter back down to his heroic basics – relying less on tech and more on his abilities – but at the same time, also back down to who he is at his core: a young kid in the big leagues who, no matter what cool things he can do, is still awkwardly nerdy deep down.“It’s not actually capable of much – it sort of strips Spider-Man back, and it’s now him relying on his powers.
