Today the folks at Ubisoft reported a pair of significant game delays. Before today, Far Cry 6 was aimed at a release of February 2021, while Rainbow Six Quarantine was previously postponed more than once – at one point headed for the first quarter of 2020, then the second half of the year (2020). Because of the global pandemic through … Continue reading
The light can now adjust its colors automatically. | Image; Eve
Eve’s smart light strip can now adjust its colors automatically throughout the course of the day thanks to iOS 14’s new Adaptive Lighting feature, the company announced. The light strip is the first product to support the new Apple HomeKit feature, according to Eve, but first requires a firmware update that owners can perform via the Eve app.
Adaptive Lighting is a new HomeKit feature introduced this year which allows compatible smart bulbs to adapt their colors to the time of day, showing warmer hues in the morning and evenings, or cooler ones at midday. Other manufacturers also appear to be working to support the feature, with iphone-ticker reporting (via MacRumors) earlier this month that Philips Hue beta testers in Germany were able...
"We have to sort of shake each other by the collar and say, 'take a look at what's going on. Look at the data. It speaks for itself,' Fauci said.
Apple hasn’t had that much luck with its own wireless chargers, at least if you look at the still MIA AirPower, so it was a bit surprising when it announced the all-new old-named MagSafe wireless charging system for the iPhone 12. That has almost made a lot forget about the wireless charging capabilities that have been rumored for iPhones since … Continue reading
Our antibody response to coronavirus could decline over time, new research has revealed.A study by Imperial College London and Ipsos MORI tested more than 365,000 people in England between June and September to see if they had any Covid-19 antibodies. Antibodies are a type of protein produced by the body in response to an infection to fight the attack. Researchers found that the number of people who tested positive for coronavirus antibodies was 6% between June 20 and July 13. But by the end of September, this had dropped to just 4.4%. Experts said the results of the study could suggest that our antibody response to Covid-19 reduces over time. Helen Ward, one of the lead authors, said: “This very large study has shown that the proportion of people with detectable antibodies is falling over time.“We don’t yet know whether this will leave these people at risk of reinfection with the virus that causes Covid-19, but it is essential that everyone continues to follow guidance to reduce the risk to themselves and others.” It remains unclear whether Covid-19 antibodies – which are produced when the body is attacked by an infection – provide any effective level of immunity. But the study found that the reduction in the prevalence of antibodies was not equal across all age groups. People aged 18 to 24 had the highest prevalence of antibodies between June and September – and this figure declined at the slowest rate out of all age groups. Meanwhile, people aged 75 and over not only had the lowest prevalence of antibodies, but also the biggest decline in numbers. In the latest round of the study, between September 15 and 28, the prevalence of antibodies was highest in London, and in those of Black and Asian ethnicity. Scientists said the results of the research showed that a vaccine is needed to protect large numbers of the population, and so-called “herd immunity” is still a “long, long way” off.Graham Cooke, professor of infectious diseases at Imperial College London, said: “The big picture here is that after the first wave, the great majority of the country still did not have evidence of protective immunity.”It means the country still has a “great majority of people” who are unlikely to have been exposed to Covid-19, he said. “So the need for a vaccine is still very large if you want to try and get a large level of protection in the population.”Related...

Western Digital has announced its first PCIe 4.0 M.2 NVMe SSDs, the WD Black SN850s, and they’ll offer fast read / write speeds of up to 7,000MB/s and 5,300MB/s that should help reduce load times on your PC and in games.
Those speeds are a notable increase from the SN750’s 3,100MB/s and 1,600MB/s read / write speeds, and on par (with a slightly faster write speed) with Samsung’s recently announced PCIe 4.0 NVMe SSDs.
Because they’re standard M.2 NVMe SSDs, the SN850s should work in most gaming PCs, as long as you have a compatible motherboard. Theoretically, they could also work as storage expansions for the PlayStation 5 — but Sony hasn’t actually said what drives will be certified as compatible with its next-generation console just...

Google Nest Audio
Google has officially announced the new Nest Audio smart speaker, the latest in its line of smart speakers powered by the Google Assistant. The Nest Audio replaces the original Google Home from 2016 as Google’s midrange smart speaker, slotting above the Nest Mini and below the Nest Max in the lineup. It costs $99.
Unlike the Google Home’s air freshener aesthetic, the Nest Audio’s soft rounded corners and vaguely rectangular shape make it more reminiscent of a loaf of bread standing on its end. Like the Nest Mini, it’s completely wrapped in fabric, which you can get in a few different colors. Also like the other Nest speakers, there are four colored LEDs embedded in the fabric that light up when the speaker hears or responds to a voice...
