In recent weeks, Fortnite‘s Pressure Plant (the new destination inside of the volcanic crater) opened to reveal the previously leaked Robot Factory.Though the opening didn’t do anything significant at the time, players were presented with the legs of a huge robot currently under construction.As of the most recent update, the robot is almost complete.The Robot Factory is located where the Pressure Plant was previously placed, which itself had replaced the Volcano point of interest before the season 8 eruption.News of the Robot Factory’s presence first surfaced in a couple of leaks, but thus far the new point of interest hasn’t been terribly, well, interesting.It has become clear that a singular massive robot being built at the factory will play a role in Epic’s overall storyline for the game, however.

I must say, I do love a good supervillain.And Blofeld, the villainous rival of spy James Bond, is a great one.As played by Christoph Waltz, he’s a compelling force, and he’s returning in the newest Bond film.As Variety reports, Waltz will be returning to the franchise for the 25th Bond film, which has suffered more than a few hiccups during its long production, the latest of which was Daniel Craig injuring his ankle.According to Variety, Waltz’s return was confirmed by insiders close to production, which puts this in not-quite-confirmed territory, but it’s very likely true.That means he’ll join a cast that includes Daniel Craig, Lashana Lynch, Rami Malek, and Ralph Fiennes, on a film directed by Cary Joji Fukanaga and written by Phoebe Waller-Bridges.

The mCable Gaming Edition HDMI cable from Marseille promises to "eliminate jagged edges and shimmering texture without creating blurring artifacts" among other things.The mCable is more than just an HDMI cable, so there's a good reason why it's pricier.Inside one end of the cable is a graphics processor (powered by the connected USB cable) that upscales the low-resolution graphics from older or retro consoles, PC games and the Nintendo Switch.The Switch's native output is 1280 x 720 pixels and it can use some help, especially when it's connected to a large full HD or 4K UHD TV.And, as I mentioned at the top, it promises to help with aliasing (aka jaggies) on curved lines and punch up contrast and color in addition to the upscaling.However, while the cable doesn't miraculously create straight lines and smooth curves from jagged edges, the processing does soften them so they appear less severe and it does this without smearing details.

With display resolutions on TVs, smartphones, laptops, and all other electronics getting better and better, you want to be certain that the media you stream matches the quality of your display.Also, it should be noted that only select content on Netflix will have a 4K option.You’ve got your standalone devices like a Roku or Fire TV, as well as smart TVs with various apps pre-installed.You’ve also got laptops, smartphones, and tablets, all of which might have different operating systems and different features and limitations.However, if you were to get picky, Netflix is supported on more devices than Amazon Prime.This prevents you from sharing your account with your extended family or large friend network — though many still do it.

Albert Einstein's work in part led to the prediction of quantum entanglement: the idea that two particles can remain connected across vast distances of space and time.Einstein found the idea absurd and "spooky," but it has since been proven with countless quantum physics experiments.No had ever photographed entangled photons (pieces of light), though, until one research team recently did so with a high-tech laser experiment.However, the ghostly, eye-like shapes illustrate a strange phenomenon that rattled Albert Einstein so much that he died disbelieving it could exist."The image we've managed to capture is an elegant demonstration of a fundamental property of nature, seen for the very first time in the form of an image," Paul-Antoine Moreau, a physicist at the University of Glasgow, said in a press release.Then at the exact moment of observation, even if the particles are separated by light-years of space, the other particle takes on the opposite state of its twin.

The rumors and leaks surrounding the Pixel 4 barely started when Google tweeted out a photo of the handset.The search giant didn’t share any additional information but learning bits and pieces about the phone from code teardowns.So with what we do know, we decided to ask you: What do you think of Google’s upcoming Pixel 4?Interestingly, out of the nearly 20,000 people who voted in this week’s poll on the website, Twitter, and YouTube, the votes were almost equally split between the three options.Digging through the comments, it’s pretty clear that most are tired of Google releasing mediocre phones with flagship prices.Some have a small amount of hope that the company has learned from the past and will include an ample amount of RAM and doesn’t suffer from software bugs when launched.

In late August and early September of 1977, NASA launched twin spacecraft, Voyager 1 and 2.These two missions fundamentally changed the way we understand our solar system: Scientists saw massive storms on Jupiter.They found Io covered in erupting volcanoes.They captured Saturn’s rings in such unprecedented and tantalizing detail that it warranted a return trip, with Cassini in the late 1990s.The Voyager craft were originally meant to study Jupiter and Saturn.However, after their revolutionary discoveries, NASA extended the missions and sent Voyager 2 onward to Uranus and Neptune.

I spent a few weeks revisiting Amazon’s phone failure, and to be sure, reviewers were not wrong when it was released—It’s still a terrible gadget.With a 4.7-inch HD display and a Snapdragon 800 processor, the device’s specs were competitive with other phones on the market at the time.Although the device sold at a premium price of $600 (£479.99 in the UK), this rubber manages to make the thing feel a bit cheap.What makes the Fire Phone hardware unique, however, are the six cameras crammed into every corner of the device.Then there are four more cameras on the front that work together to create something called Dynamic Perspective.In his 2014 review of the Fire Phone, former Gizmodo writer Eric Limer said that Dynamic Perspective was “impressive tech… also pretty useless.” Five years later, I would argue that it’s deeply useless.
