Alienware‘s m17 is a hard laptop to pigeonhole.For all appearances it’s just a bigger version of the m15, but in practice it’s something entirely different.Sure they look the same, but the smaller one only really competes against other gaming laptops.I think this is fantastic because it means there’s more of the gorgeous red soft-touch material covering its lid.I won’t tell you it’s the fastest gaming laptop out there – it’s not even the fastest Alienware laptop – but I will say that it’s fast enough play most games on max settings at 1080p resolution while maintaining 100 FPS or higher.It’s also more than suited for Photoshop, 4K video editing and rendering, and other similarly resource-intensive design and software functions.

World Champion thrower Logan Broadbent says it's pretty simple."Basically the best way to think of it is that each wing is an airplane wing," he says."The top side is curved and the bottom side is relatively flat and that shape allows the boomerang to generate lift.""But a boomerang is thrown vertically so the directional lift is to the side, unlike an airplane flying horizontal where the directional lift is up in the air.So you throw it nice and vertical, straight up and down, it'll curve around and come back."Broadbent, a former boomerang trick shot champion, first joined the US Boomerang team at age 14, and currently ranks number two in the world.

Fast-forward several months and Speedgate, the quirky game their neural network created based on data from more than 400 sports, is in high demand among recreational enthusiasts worldwide, according to AKQA creative director Whitney Jenkins.So far, 10 universities have committed to hosting intramural leagues, including the University of Maryland, the University of Idaho and Brigham Young University.The agency has fielded inquiries from hobbyists, recreational organizers and colleges in at least 40 countries who are also interested in hosting their own competitions, according to Jenkins.The sport has even earned an official designation from the Oregon Sports Authority.“This morning, I actually had to answer a Russian email that was disputing out-of-bounds penalties if the out-of-bounds was intentional,” he said.While the sport is best described as a cross between rugby, ultimate frisbee and soccer, Jenkins said the process that created it was a lot more complex than a simple combination of various game elements.

More than three years after Facebook released one of the biggest gambles in its existence, a virtual reality headset it paid billions to launch as its own, the company has grown more embattled but its moonshot VR flagship has grown safer.Facebook’s sequel to the Oculus Rift is not the Rift 2, it is the Rift S. Just as the iPhone naming scheme denotes the tock to a tick rather than a full revolution; the latest product is a hardware update, albeit a pretty minor one, more of a 1.2 than a 2.0.It wasn’t always going to be this way — the company’s founding CEO had other plans.But the Rift S represented a way for Facebook to push the accessibility of its most high-end headset and likely the profit margins of the cheaper-feeling headset, which does cost $399 versus the original Rift’s $349 price tag, a number that danced and dwindled its way down from a Rift + Touch launch price of $798 at the end of 2016.The hardware design isn’t really the story that Facebook and Oculus are pushing with the Rift S. The hardware is a product of sacrifices that give the entire headset a lower-end feeling than the Quest or Go, it was largely built by Lenovo after all; as such this release is mostly about the software advancements.Gone are the external sensors and their damn driver updates, gone are the constant needs for recalibration when a headset was bumped out of place — this is a headset that learns from your space.

The extended battle between Tesla CEO Elon Musk and the Securities and Exchange Commission finally reached a head earlier this month when a Federal judge ordered that the two parties "put on their reasonableness pants" and come to an agreement on what Musk needs to have approval to post on social media.As early as Friday morning, both parties sought an extension to the judge's initial two-week timeline, but according to a report published late on Friday by CNBC, Musk and the SEC have come to terms and have submitted documentation to the court outlining them.The quick version of what it says is that Musk needs to have the approval of a specialist securities lawyer -- which Tesla has to pay for -- to say anything in written form or on an earnings call that relates to topics like production numbers, delivery numbers, mergers and acquisitions or new business lines (like leaf blowers, for example).If that seems kind of like what he agreed to the first time Musk and the SEC reached a settlement post-"Funding secured" that's because it is similar.This is just in a more clear and easily enforceable language.Now, whether it will actually work and whether the internet's newest meme lord will be able to keep himself under control remains to be seen.

From Infinity War to Black Panther to Captain Marvel, Marvel movies keep smashing box office records.Yup, we seriously can't get enough of Marvel movies.The MCU has expanded to 22 films, reinvented serialized movies, and made more than $18.6 billion at the global box office -- but when it began a decade ago it was actually quite a gamble.Cast your mind back years before Endgame, before Thanos and the Infinity War snap, before the Avengers assembled...For starters, the Iron Man character had never appeared in a movie or live-action TV show, putting him behind the likes of Spider-Man and the Hulk in terms of general public awareness."In the late 1990s Robert Downey Jr. was uninsurable," says box office analyst Stephen Follows, "making him unemployable to any production which wanted to get a completion bond."

The Samsung Galaxy Fold was already a controversial smartphone well before review units of the device were sent out earlier this week.Media outlets like CNBC, The Verge, and Bloomberg, along with popular YouTube tech reviewer MKBHD, all reported that the larger inside screen stopped working after only a day or two.While at least a couple of these units failed because a protective film on the display was removed, it looks like the screens on the Galaxy Fold units given to CNBC and The Verge failed because the displays themselves broke down.Check out this commentary from our colleague Scott Adam Gordon for more information.Samsung has already announced it plans to “thoroughly inspect these units in person to determine the cause of the matter.” However, it also indicated that the April 26 launch date for the Galaxy Fold will go on as scheduled.However, we are still talking about one of the most expensive phones ever made for general consumers.
