MacBooks may ditch terrible 'butterfly' keyboards starting later this year

Image
Many words have been spilled about the controversial keyboards in Apple's MacBooks. Most people find the keyboards which use a "butterfly" mechanism to achieve their razor-thin profiles to be too flat, too noisy, and too unreliable. With Chief Design Officer Jony Ive heading towards the exit, it appears Apple's going to do a u-turn by returning back to the "scissor" mechanism keyboards with better key travel.In his latest note to investors (via MacRumors), top Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says Apple will introduce a new keyboard with scissor mechanism in a new 16-inch MacBook Pro slated for launch in the fourth quarter of this year.

Flyboard rider attempts to cross English Channel, falls into the ocean instead

Image
What is more noble than man's mastery of the sky? The quest to conquer not just land and sea, but also air? The casting off of the shackles of earthbound existence?Oh, we're talking about a failed "flyboard" mission that ended minutes after takeoff with a plop into the English Channel? Never mind.On Thursday, the French inventor Franky Zapata attempted to cross from France to the U.K. over the English Channel on a device of his creation, the "Flyboard Air." Alas, he missed the platform on which he was supposed to land and refuel, and fell into the sea. Oh well.Franky Zapata takes off in his bid to cross from France to England on his flyboard. The Frenchman's attempt failed a short time later when he missed a landing platform to refuel.

Instagram disables accounts for celebrity photographer Marcus Hyde

Image

The messages showed him trying to exchange a free photoshoot with Nash for her nude photographs earlier this week. Now BuzzFeed News is reporting that Instagram has disabled both Hyde's main account and his second account, @marcushyde_2.

Microsoft's 'Office Online' is now just 'Office'

Image
Microsoft offers a few different versions of Office, with the main three being Office 2019, Office 365, and Office Online. However, that last version is now dropping the Online bit and becoming simply Office.So why the change? In a post on the Office Apps Blog, Bill Doll, Senior Product Marketing Manager for Office Apps Strategy, explains that because Office is now offered across a range of platforms, it makes little sense to use any "platform-specific sub-brands." With that in mind, Office Online drops the Online sub-brand, as do all the apps under its umbrella, so Word Online, Excel Online, Powerpoint Online, etc. all drop "Online," too. Read more...

There’s no longer the option of going back to the old design people knew and loved.Or is there?Twitter isn’t providing an official way to go back to the way the site was before it rolled out the new design to everyone.

Heat records in Europe are dropping like flies

Image
Paris. Germany. The Netherlands. Belgium. The second potent heat wave to hit Europe in the span of a month is currently toppling all-time temperature records in a region that keeps many of the oldest weather records in the worldA number of national records broke on Wednesday, but Thursday, July 25, is shaping up to be even hotter.Every heat wave has both weather and climate influences. The foundational idea is that weather patterns carry in masses of hot summer air, but the added heat produced by human-caused climate change amplifies modern heat waves. That's why a cluster of heat records are now falling.  Read more... More about Science, Europe, Global Warming, Climate Change, and Heat Wave

BTS fans are bringing the memes after RM remixed 'Old Town Road' with Lil Nas X

Image
BTS is on a much-needed break for the summer, but that doesn't mean its members can't goof around on the side — especially when that means doing a remix with some big yeehaw energy.On Thursday, Lil Nas X released his newest remix of "Old Town Road" featuring RM (aka Kim Namjoon) of BTS. It's appropriately titled "Seoul Town Road." Who knows how many NDAs everyone had to sign to get this to the public without BTS fans ARMYs sniffing it out, but it worked.It came completely out of left field for both K-Pop fans and fans of Lil Nas X, and both sides reacted accordingly. There are a lot of layers to take in here — RM's pun-filled wordplay in the verse, the mashup of aesthetics.  Read more... More about Memes, Bts, Lil Nas X, Old Town Road, and Culture

'Avengers: Endgame' is now available for pre-order at Walmart

Image
TL;DR: You can now pre-order Avengers: Endgame for $29.96 from Walmart.I think it's pretty safe to say that Avengers: Endgame is one of the biggest movies ever. Not only is it every Marvel fan's dream to see all of their favorite heroes interacting on screen together (will my fellow Ant Man stans please reveal themselves), it also just defeated Avatar to become the highest-grossing film of all time. The continuation of the “most ambitious crossover in history," the Endgame hype was huge before the movie even came out. Pre-orders for tickets were in such high demand that customers crashed AMC movie servers (and this was just for tickets)Endgame also basically broke the internet as it was the most tweeted-about movie ever, so chances are if you hadn’t seen it already, it was spoiled for you online.

'Overly Attached Girlfriend' Laina Morris leaves YouTube with candid video about mental health

Image
Laina Morris, best known as the face of the Overly Attached Girlfriend meme, uploaded her last video to YouTube on Wednesday.In the video, the 28-year-old YouTube star detailed her reasons for leaving the platform, many of which were mental health-related. In particular, she discussed her experience with depression, which began shortly after her viral video took off. "I felt a lot of pressure to make up my mind career-wise," she said. "I couldn't do it confidently and it really stressed me out."Morris was also candid about her struggle to begin taking medication, a transition she found surprisingly difficult. Now, though, she's glad she made the right decision for her.  Read more... More about Youtube, Memes, Culture, and Web Culture

Red's explanation for why its 'holographic' phone failed is very stupid

Image
Red's overpriced Hydrogen One and its gimmicky "holographic display" (more like headache-inducing, glasses-free 3D screen) was a disaster before it even launched. But why did one of the most hyped phones of 2018 end up being the worst tech product of last year? And where the heck is the promised modular attachment that's supposed to turn the phone into a cinema-grade camera?After months of silence, Red founder Jim Jannard's offered an explanation. Jannard pins the phone's failure on the hardware manufacturer Red selected to build the phone. Instead of owning up to Red's own poor design choices, the company's deflecting blame on its outsourced help. Read more... More about Mobile, Android, Red, Holographic Display, and Hydrogen One

New research report about the 2019 Apple iPhones would make Steve Jobs say "Yuck!"

Image
According to an analyst's note sent out to clients by Citi Research, the upcoming Apple iPhone 11 series could include a feature that will make the late Steve Jobs spin in his grave. As noted by Business Insider, the research arm of Citibank's Private Banking unit says that it expects to see "support for (an) iPhone pencil/stylus" with the new models expected to be unveiled in September. But remember, it is a rumor and a similar one made the rounds last August before the 2018 iPhones were introduced. Obviously, that report was inaccurate.

Back in January of 2007 ...
