Did the INCREDIBLES 2 Trailer Secretly Reveal Its True Villain? | Nerdist

It only took fourteen years to get a glimpse at what happened to the Parr family after The Incredibles, but the first real trailer for Incredibles 2 hit this week and it's going for a full superhero Mr. Mom riff! Yes, it's true. Mr. Incredible is staying at home to take care of the kids while Elastigirl is taking on a bigger role as she helps the superhero population make a comeback. And while we know that the Underminer will be menacing the Parr family in the sequel, the trailer may have given us a glimpse of the story's true villain. Today's Nerdist News is hitting the trouble alarm and pointing fingers at the new big bad! There are potential spoilers ahead for Incredibles 2. Consider yourselves warned! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YBpdL9hSac4 Join host and the only babysitter that Jack-Jack can't intimidate, Jessica Chobot, as she identifies the sequel's villain as Bob Odenkirk's Winston Deavor.

Because companies have a duty to comply with equal employment laws and an interest in promoting diversity, “employers must be permitted to ‘nip in the bud’ the kinds of employee conduct that could lead to a ‘hostile workplace,’ rather than waiting until an actionable hostile workplace has been created before taking action," Sophir wrote.

Embedding a Tweet Can Violate a Copyright, Judge Rules

"Having carefully considered the embedding issue, this Court concludes… that when defendants caused the embedded Tweets to appear on their websites, their actions violated plaintiff's exclusive display right," Judge Katherine Forrest wrote in a summary judgement opinion.

Unlocked phones vs. locked phones: What's to know

For instance, Apple sells two versions of  the iPhone 7, 7 Plus, 8, 8 Plus and X. Unlocked versions of these phones that aren't sold through a carrier are compatible on all four US carriers. The iPhones sold through Verizon or Sprint can also be used on both CDMA and GSM networks, which means they are compatible with AT&T and T-Mobile. But iPhones sold through AT&T and T-Mobile don't include modems for CDMA, so they can't be used for voice service on Verizon or Sprint.

Facebook will mail out postcards to verify US election advertisers

“If you run an ad mentioning a candidate, we are going to mail you a postcard and you will have to use that code to prove you are in the United States,” Katie Harbath, Facebook’s global director of policy programs, said on Saturday. She acknowledged to Reuters that the process “won’t solve everything” but is just one step Facebook is taking to prevent foreign nationals from spending money under fake cover to influence US politics. (The verification method won’t be required for ads that focus on political issues — only for those that mention a specific candidate.)

Best photo editing software for your desktop

The CyberLink software offers useful everyday photo-editing tools and an interface that's split into six modules. There's the Library module to import, mark, and prepare photos for editing, but all the magic happens in the Adjustment module. It gives you tools to crop, straighten, and adjust tonality. There's a spot remover tool for blemishes and an adjustment brush to isolate areas you want to alter. Add a gradient mask, saturate or desaturate, and adjust color temperature. If retouching and skin smoothing tools is what you're after then the Edit allows you to do just that, along with a cool body shaping feature.

The best password managers for 2018

And -- let's be honest with each other -- "chaos" is an accurate description. The use of user IDs and passwords for account authentication is a fundamentally flawed security mechanism. User IDs are often guessable, derived from the account holder's name or other characteristics. Complex passwords are difficult to remember, so many users have defaulted to passwords like "password," "abc123," their pet's name and other easily guessable or breakable naming conventions. And in a world where the size of password breaches can number in the hundreds of millions or more, it's plausible that your passwords may already be floating around the seedier corners of the internet.

Apple HomePod review: A great speaker that’s not so smart

Even if we put third-party support aside, Siri on the HomePod still feels limited. Alexa and Google Assistant can, for instance, handle multiple timers at once. They can peer into your calendar and tell you what's next on your schedule (Alexa needs some external skills for this), which Siri simply can't do right now. Siri also can't initiate phone calls, even when the iOS device it's associated with is on the same network. Before receiving the HomePod, I had hoped Apple's devotion to building a smart speaker that connected to a tightly defined list of devices and services meant the integrations themselves would be tight as well. That might eventually be the case, but it isn't now.

The $800 Huawei Mate 10 Pro is a solid Android smartphone that's also sleek and stylish

A solid plus is that it's water resistant and is IP67 certified, which is on par with the iPhone 8, iPhone X and Google Pixel 2. If you want a phone that is IP68 certified, look at the Samsung Galaxy S8. What this basically means is that you can submerge an IP67 certified phone for up to 30 minutes in 1 meter of water, and you can submerge an IP68 phone for up to 30 minutes at a depth of 1.5 meters. So either certification means that the phone will survive a dunk in the toilet or sink.

25 Lost’ ancient Mexican city had as many buildings as Manhattan, laser map shows

Some bridges and roads are damaged and the main road to Hualien is closed. More than 100 earthquakes have hit off Taiwan's east coast in the past three days. The Seismological Observation Center said they are cuased by the friction between the Philipine Plate and Eurasian Plate.

iMac Pro review: Hard to upgrade, but holy Jony Ive it’s fast

Most workflows call for a very powerful processor and at least one very powerful graphics card. Further, it’s critically important for there to be an upgrade path—particularly with the GPU. Two mid-range workstation GPUs (as found in the Mac Pro) are not enough for some tasks. Annual performance gains in the CPU are not what they used to be, but graphics processors are still marching aggressively forward.

Intel researchers push quantum computing forward with new silicon chips

Spin qubits are similar to semiconductor electronics and transistors, and deliver quantum power by leveraging the spin of an electron on a silicon device. They offer several advantages over superconducting qubits, Intel noted: They are much smaller in physical size, and easier to scale, and can function at higher temperatures than superconducting qubits. The design of spin qubit processors is very similar to traditional silicon transistor technologies, which Intel has the equipment and infrastructure to manufacture.

SoundCloud doesn't disclose how many creators participate in the program currently, but Trainor said its alumni have booked 10 Grammy nods and three Grammy wins.

What Is 8K? Should You Buy a New TV or Wait?

Don't wait for 8K unless you want to stick with your old TV for another half-decade. Consumer 4K televisions first shipped five years ago, and it's only been in the last year or two that we've been confident that 4K has hit a state where consumers of any budget level can confidently purchase one. The first waves of these new TVs are always exorbitantly expensive, after which they spend a few years sitting on the top of manufacturers' product lists as flagship models that are still extremely expensive but comparably reasonable (less than five digits). After that, prices start to dip further, to the point that most consumers can afford one.

Michael B. Jordan Is a 'Black Panther' Encyclopedia

Need proof? Ask Jordan who Black Panther is and he won't just say "the king of Wakanda," he'll say that he “fought Captain America throughout Marvel comic history.” Ask him if the hero has superpowers and he’ll respond, “Yeah, he does. He takes a Heart-Shaped Herb; it gives him super strength, a lot of cat-like qualities. Pretty cool.” Ask him whether T’Challa or Cap is stronger and the answer is: “They’re the same, but Black Panther edged out Captain America in almost every battle that they had throughout Marvel history.” He even has an excellent argument for who would win in a battle between T'Challa and Wolverine. Sure, some of his intel may have been in the script, but there's no denying Jordan is an encyclopedia of Wakandan knowledge.

Google conducts test to help 911 accurately locate callers

The test was done in conjunction with two companies that have connections into 911 centers, West Corp. and RapidSOS. Under the current 911 system, wireless carriers are normally responsible for providing location information, but it isn’t very accurate. RapidSOS says that using Google’s technology, about 80 percent of the 911 calls had more accurate location data within the first 30 seconds. Google’s data also dramatically shrunk the estimated radius of a call’s location, from 522 feet down to 121 feet and arrived faster than carrier data.

Tesla is closing in on 200,000 U.S. electric vehicle sales thanks to the popularity of its luxury Model S sedan and Model X SUV. If it hits 200,000 U.S. electric vehicle sales in the third quarter, then the $7,500 tax credit would phase out in stages over 2019. GM also is getting close to the limit, having sold nearly 170,000 plug-in cars, including Bolts, Volts and others, through the end of last year, Green Car Reports estimated.

How the new cybercriminals use cryptocurrency to commit cybercrimes

Kleczynski: I think the difference between many of these cryptocurrencies is simply implementation detail, how the network is architected, how the transactions and ledgers is architected. There is a good degree of being anonymous using these cryptocurrencies. That being said, if you buy Bitcoin through an ATM that's in a public space, I mean, there are cameras around and that makes you less anonymous. So, many of these criminals use online services to acquire and trade these cryptocurrencies, which is why they're able to remain anonymous on the internet. But I think it's a matter of time before government intervention gets it to be a little less anonymous than it is today, or has been in the past.
