Microsoft appears to be readying a special Fortnite-style version of the company’s Xbox One S console. WinFuture reports that Microsoft will release a purple edition of the Xbox One S in the coming weeks, in a bundle designed for Fortnite fans. The Xbox One S Fortnite Limited Edition will reportedly include a new “Dark Vertex” skin and 2000 V-Bucks in-game currency. The bundle is also said to include a month of Xbox Live Gold, EA Access, and Xbox Game Pass.
It’s not clear exactly when Microsoft will announce this new color variant, but it’s rumored to debut at $299 with 1TB of storage and the Blu-ray optical drive. This certainly isn’t the first time Microsoft has customized an Xbox One S console...

Following its launch in 2011, Game of Thrones became one of the most talked about and loved TV shows in history. Eight years and dozens of Emmy awards later, episode six of season eight aired last Sunday, bringing the curtain down for the final time. While millions were able to soak up this momentous TV occasion, fans in China were left brokenhearted. Tencent Video, the Chinese platform that has held the local distribution rights to the HBO series since 2014, revealed that it would not be broadcasting S08EP06. Citing a mysterious “media transmission problem”, Thrones fans were told that if they wanted to watch the show, that would have to be at a later date. Strangely, however, HBO told the Wall Street...

In the wake of the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. on April 4, 1968, a newly formed group called the Black Psychiatrists of America began to challenge their white colleagues to think about racism in a new way. Its members had been discussing for some time the possibility of creating an organization that would address their lack of representation within the key bodies of American psychiatry. But now, as one of these men, Dr. Chester Pierce, later put it ”we anguished in our grief for a great moderate leader,” and it seemed that the time for moderation on their side was also over. In Pierce’s words: “As we listened to radio reports and called to various sections of the country for the on-the spot...

In the years following the bitter Civil War, a former Union general took a holiday originated by former Confederates and helped spread it across the entire country. The holiday was Memorial Day, and this year’s commemoration on May 27 marks the 151st anniversary of its official nationwide observance. The annual commemoration was born in the former Confederate States in 1866 and adopted by the United States in 1868. It is a holiday in which the nation honors its military dead.
Gen. John A. Logan, who headed the largest Union veterans’ fraternity at that time, the Grand Army of the Republic, is usually credited as being the originator of the holiday.
Yet when General Logan established the holiday, he...

Underfloor heating is a wonderfully luxurious touch for a bedroom and en-suite bathroom, and [Andy] had it fitted so that he could experience the joy of walking on a toasty-warm floor in the morning. Unfortunately after about a year it stopped working and the culprit proved to be its thermostat. A replacement was eye-wateringly expensive, so he produced his own using an ESP8266-powered Sonoff wireless switch.
The thermostat has a thermistor as its temperature sensor, embedded in the floor itself. This could be brought to the ESP’s solitary ADC pin, but not without a few challenges along the way. The Sonoff doesn’t expose the pin, so some very fine soldering was the first requirement. A simple voltage...

At first glance, Matthew Rugamba’s big break was the result of pure serendipity.
The Rwandan designer had long harbored dreams of designing for Hollywood’s biggest stars. Since 2011, he has built a loyal following for his House of Tayo brand, fusing African heritage with contemporary designs to create brightly colored, mixed-print items like bow ties and infinity scarves. But he had struggled to break out from the local fashion scene.
That changed in 2018, with the premiere of one of the most anticipated movies of the year: Black Panther. Rugamba discovered that a mutual friend knew Peter Junior Nyong’o, the brother of Kenyan Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o, who plays the powerful spy Nakia in the...

A small UK political party is benefitting from anchoring its campaign around a big, brash British word: “bollocks.”
The distinctive word isn’t just colorful or crass. It has a long political history as a bold statement. And the Liberal Democrats, a pro-EU centrist party, is hoping that history, wrapped up in its campaign slogan “Bollocks to Brexit,” could help it win over frustrated voters.
Indeed, the Lib Dems are polling in the number two spot among UK parties in the European Parliament elections, ahead of both the ruling Conservatives and the opposition Labour party. The UK voted on Thursday, while other EU members will wrap up their elections by Sunday.
The word choice is certainly getting...

If you are an Indian liberal today, first get over yourself. Get over your self-involved grief and your indictment of an entire electorate as bigoted. You might still know better than them—but for starters, accept their decision.
The new government isn’t a result of a coup or an unconstitutional takeover, but that of a popular election and free will. Begin by acknowledging that this is democracy at work. It may be flawed and damaged, but it is our democracy and it is free choice. Which means you also have the choice to dissent and disagree with the choice, but begin by respecting it.
There is very little grace or sense of proportion in this general bleakness. References from Harry Potter and Avengers:...

We like to pretend that wires are perfect all the time. For the most part that’s acceptable, but sometimes you really do care about those tiny fractional ohm quantities. Unfortunately though, most meters won’t read very low values. There are tricks you can use to achieve that aim, such as measuring low currents through a device with a known voltage applied. It is handier though to have an instrument to make the reading directly, and [Kasyan TV] did just that with a surprisingly low part count.
The whole thing is built from an LM317, a resistor, and a voltmeter module, that’s it. [Kasyan] mentions the meter’s accuracy means the lower digits are not meaningful, but it looks to us as though there are...

Summer in the Northern hemisphere means outdoor cooking. Matches are old school, and you are more likely to use a piezoelectric lighter to start your grill. [Steve Mould] has one, but he didn’t understand the physics behind why it works, so he decided to do the research and share it in a video.
The first two minutes is a recap of things you already know. But after that [Steve] gets into the crystal lattice structure of quartz. Using some computer animations and some peanut butter lids he shows you exactly why compressing the crystal generates electricity. If you think you don’t care about barbecue lighters, [Steve] reminds you that the same effect is what makes the quartz crystals we use in crystal...

X-acto knives are popular as the scalpel of the craft world. Obviously, holders for the blades are available off-the-shelf, but you needn’t settle for store bought. [Ariel Yahni] set about making an X-acto handle of their own, and it shows just how quick and easy making your own tools can be.
The blades are first measured to determine the appropriate dimensions for the holder. With this done, the basic shape of the handle is drawn up in CAD software using simple primitive shapes and lines. Then it’s just a simple matter of jigging up a piece of aluminium stock in the CNC machine, and letting it do its thing.
The final result needs minimal finishing – primarily just an inspection of the parts, minor...

It's election time this May and JEF Germany are doing a #EuropaMachen campaign for a better European Union. The New Federalist and its German sister edition Treffpunkt Europa look at their demands – today: a European army and a common seat at the UN Security Council! Already, soldiers from different Member States are jointly deployed on certain missions. An EU army does not exist, however. Proponents of this idea consider it an indispensable element of an effective European foreign policy, critics fear that nation-states lose a vital competence.

Brian Krebs has revealed that a company that primarily works in real estate insurance has left as many as 885 million records exposed on its website — going back to 2003. First American Financial Corp’s big mistake should have been obvious to anybody who would have given a second thought to security. If you had the URL for any document on its website, you could simply add or subtract one to a number in the URL to access another document. Given the type of business this company is in, those records include incredibly private information. Krebs spoke with Ben Shoval, who brought the exposure to his attention and who says the documents potentially included “Social Security numbers, drivers licenses, account...

Snap is in talks with Sony Music Entertainment, Universal Music Group, and Warner Music Group to license songs for users to embed in posts, according to a Wall Street Journal report. The deal would give users access to a broad catalog of songs to post on Snapchat, much like the features available for Instagram Stories and TikTok.
The licensing deal would come at a time when tech companies are increasingly leaning into music features as a core part of their offerings. The popularity of these videos has allowed social media platforms to launch hit songs — Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road,” which has been the number one song on the Billboard Top 100 for several weeks, first gained popularity through TikTok as a...

By all accounts, the OnePlus 7 Pro is the nicest phone released by the company yet — with a higher price that reflects as much. But some early buyers are reporting that they’ve noticed phantom screen presses, where apps are responding as if something on the screen had been tapped even when the phone is sitting idle. OnePlus is aware of the issue, according to Android Police, and says it’s treating it as a high priority after managing to successfully reproduce the problem. If you just bought this phone, you’re no doubt hoping that the phantom taps are something that can be eliminated through a software update and aren’t indicative of a deeper hardware dilemma. The OnePlus 7 Pro has a first-of-its-kind...

Over the last few years the open-source RISC-V microprocessor has moved from existing only on FPGAs into real silicon, and right now you can buy a RISC-V microcontroller with all the bells and whistles you would ever want. There’s an interesting chip from China called the Sipeed M1 that features a dual-core RISC-V core running at 600MHz, a bunch of I/Os, and because it’s 2019, a neural network processor. We’ve seen this chip before, but now Seeed Studios is selling it as a Raspberry Pi Hat. Is it an add-on board for a Pi, or is it its own standalone thing? Who knows.

In the early 2000s, the RIAA started going after against tens of thousands of alleged music pirates.
The music industry had just defeated Napster, but P2P file-sharing remained a massive problem. Applications such as KaZaA, Morpheus, Grokster, and eDonkey, had millions of users each.
Since filing federal lawsuits is relatively expensive, the RIAA attempted to take a shortcut by applying for so-called DMCA subpoenas. These are not reviewed by a judge, as regular subpoenas are, and only require a signature from the court clerk.
While this worked initially, Internet providers soon started to object. They argued that DMCA subpoenas are only valid when an Internet service stores or links to the infringing content,...

Diligently following top-tier Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) events has never been an inexpensive pastime.

Nevertheless, there is no shortage of fans who’d prefer not to pay anything at all.
