How the Xbox One X stacks up against the PlayStation 4 Pro

When it comes to hard specifications, Microsoft has Sony soundly beaten here. The Xbox One X has a faster processor, a more powerful GPU, and more memory than even the PlayStation 4 Pro. Specifically, the Xbox One X has 6 teraflops (which, in very basic terms, is how many calculations it can perform per second), compared to 4.2 teraflops on the PlayStation 4 Pro. And the extra boost in RAM — 12GB vs. 8GB — is also pretty significant, at least on paper.

https://yro.slashdot.org/story/17/06/12/1949207/covfefe-act-would-make-social-media-a-presidential-record?utm_source=slashdot&utm_medium=twitter

Rep. Mike Quigley (D-Ill.) introduced legislation Monday to classify presidential social media posts -- including President Trump's much-discussed tweets -- as presidential records. The Communications Over Various Feeds Electronically for Engagement (COVFEFE) Act, which has the same acronym as an infamous Trump Twitter typo last month, would amend the Presidential Records Act to include "social media ." Presidential records must be preserved, according to the Presidential Records Act, which would make it potentially illegal for the president to delete tweets. "President Trump's frequent, unfiltered use of his personal Twitter account as a means of official communication is unprecedented. If the President is going to take to social media to make sudden public policy proclamations, we must ensure that these statements are documented and preserved for future reference. Tweets are powerful, and the President must be held accountable for every post," said Quigley in a statement. Most people took the "covfefe" tweet to be a typo, although press secretary Sean Spicer told the media that the term was used intentionally.

Wordpress's owner is closing its San Francisco office because its employees never show up

Trump makes bizarre claims at press event as Cabinet members take turns praising him

Typically, a president's initial comments mark the end of on-camera coverage of White House Cabinet meetings, with administration aides then escorting members of the small press "pool" out of the room.

Predator Is Brilliant Because It's Rambo, But With an Alien

Best of all, though, is Predator ’s villain. While Rambo is tasked with fighting Soviet and Vietnamese soldiers, as well as a government that doesn’t share his outlook on patriotism, Schwarzenegger’s Dutch has a way more complicated opponent. Sure, he has to nail some commie bastards along the way; it’s 1987, after all. But he taps into his true heart of darkness by battling an alien who has come to Earth to test its own warrior prowess. It doesn’t want to invade. It doesn’t want to abduct anyone (at least, not until 2010's Predators ). It just wants to brawl with the most kick-ass dude on the entire planet, so it travels to the gnarliest war-torn terrain it can find and lurks around waiting for someone exactly like Dutch to cross its path. It has weapons and gadgets and invisibility capabilities bolstered by its extraterrestrial technology, but it also knows there’s a time to rip off the mask (inspiring the not-incorrect insult “You are one ugly motherfucker!”) and engage in hand-to-hand combat with its specifically chosen opponent.

No more fun and games for Gymboree

Kids clothing brand Gymboree has just filed for bankruptcy protection and is the latest in a long list of retail brands–from Payless Shoe Source to The Limited–that are suffering from declines in mall traffic and increased online competition. According to court filings, the brand plans to stay in business, but will close up t0 450 of its 1,281 stores. This means that thousands of workers will be losing their jobs. As USA Today points out , Gymboree didn't innovate quickly enough: it was late to incorporate analytics, email newsletters, and in-store tablets for employees.

Katy Perry livestreams until the word 'overexposure' has lost all meaning

While Perry slept this morning three days into the experiment, a famous pancake artist (to the extent that that's a thing) made breakfast in her likeness, speaking softly to the small crew assembled in the kitchen. It's almost like an ASMR video. Perry slept on as her breakfast got cold. Eventually, a gospel choir enters her room and wakes her up with an a cappella rendition of "Firework." She eats a salad while responding to comments and the pancakes get cold. Bon appétit, baby.

Best Buy will let you rent gadgets before you purchase them

Best Buy's website will have a button that sends you to Lumoid's site to manage the actual rental of these items, many of which may be "open box" returns instead of new items. You'll earn about 20 percent of the rental price in Lumoid credits, which can then be applied to a purchase of the rented item. Best Buy gets to breathe new life into items people have already bought and customers get to check out big-ticket items for a low monthly fee.

The Sneaky Psychology Of Apple Pay–And How It Could Cost You

Well, kind of. It doesn’t flow directly into the recipient’s bank account. It goes onto an Apple Pay cash card. Call it Apple bucks. Cupertino’s Monopoly money. The equivalent of a gift certificate. To actually collect any of the money for rent, utilities, and all those pesky things that matter, your friend will need to manually transfer it to their bank, via an interface undisclosed in the process. It cannot be automated. In other words, Apple is making the conscious choice to sit on your money, most likely reinvesting it for millions in returns, while offering you the equivalent of a gift card for your efforts.
