With 50 titles, including 15 Xbox exclusives, today’s Microsoft E3 event was wall to wall with new game trailers. As the first press conference of the big three, the company clearly wanted to put on a big (and extremely loud) show — and largely succeeded on that front. We won’t bo…

On June 16, 2010, Apple reports a massive surge of interest in its upcoming iPhone 4, with 600,000 sales on the first day of preorders. The company calls the number "far higher" than expected. At the time, it's the largest number of iPhone preorders Apple has ever taken in a single day.

PNNL: News - Seawater yields first grams of yellowcake

For now, based on the successful scaled-up testing in Sequim and significant production of yellowcake, LCW is applying for further SBIR funding for a uranium extraction field demonstration, to be led by PNNL, in the Gulf of Mexico, where the water is much warmer. The material performs much better in warmer water and extraction rates in the Gulf are expected to be three to five times higher, therefore making it more economical to obtain uranium from seawater.

Theranos founder Holmes, former president indicted for fraud

Vizio M-Series 2018: Another high-performance TV bargain

The on-screen home page takes too long to load after you press the "V" button on the remote and once it does arrive, there's not much there. Just 18 apps appear along the bottom, and while six are heavy hitters (Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, Vudu, YouTube and Plex) the rest are minor, and it doesn't have plenty of other big apps like DirecTV Now, HBO, ESPN, CNN or Pandora. You can't remove or reorder apps, or in any way customize the Discover section, which occupies most of the screen with movies and shows you probably don't care about. And even if you do, you'll need a TV provider sign-in for a lot of them.

SHANGHAI (Reuters) - China responded vigorously in state media on Saturday after the administration of U.S. President Donald Trump said it would impose tariffs on $50 billion (37.7 billion pounds) of Chinese imports, but some commentary left room for further negotiations.

RIP, 'Pro Evolution Soccer'

Still, UEFA's announcement made it seem as if it was Konami's decision to end the relationship, which seems like a baffling move from the Japanese developer. "The UEFA Champions League license has given us a platform to create unique experiences and provide football fans from all over the world with an opportunity to enjoy this competition first-hand," said Jonas Lygaard, senior director of brand and business development for Konami Digital Entertainment B.V. "This year, however, we will shift our focus into other areas. We will continue to explore alternative ways UEFA and Konami can continue to work together, as our relationship remains strong."

How to protect your company from tax season phishing scams

For example, if an employee named Ray Donovan sends a W-2 form from his corporate email address ( to his Gmail address (, UEBA can determine that it's highly likely this information is being sent to the same person and will not send a critical alert nor block the transmission. It helps if Ray has a history of sending himself emails of this nature so UEBA can mark that behavior as normal.

E3 2018 was full of games, tears and Fortnite -- lots of Fortnite

Yeah, the lines are long, the food's bad and the traffic around the Los Angeles Convention Center is insane. But entertainment in the right doses is good for the soul. And since video games  have been entertaining me since I was a little kid , this is my type of show. E3 is an event where people geek out over an industry they love so much that this past week isn't even the first time I've seen someone cry with joy over a video game. If you don't find that endearing, you're just missing out.

Instagram won't tell you when someone screenshots your Stories

The feature was only ever available to a small set of users as part of its beta testing, so it's not going to be missed by a lot of people. But if you were hoping to eventually get it before you go all in on documenting your life on social media without having to leave a permanent record, then this probably kills your chances. That is, unless Instagram is cooking up a similar-but-ultimately-different feature for wider release.

How to run VirtualBox virtual machines from the command line

If you're using VirtualBox as a virtual machine (VM) server in your data center, chances are you're going to want to know how to run those VMs without having to rely on the VirtualBox GUI. This makes it much easier to run your VMs without having to be at the host machine (you can ssh into the host and then manage the VMs) or without having a number of GUI windows open to clutter your server desktops (or be readily available for prying eyes).

Automation: How iRobot's Roomba vacuum cleaner became part of the family | ZDNet

We looked at it, thought it was silly but then thought of it as a video game pet. We thought, why don't we create a real robot pet? First we built a robot doll. And we took that around different toy companies and they said, "It's very nice but what we really want is a robot baby". So we partnered with Hasbro. We did this for about three and a half years and we built some good toys and had some success. Most importantly, because of them we went to the best factories in China and learned how to build at very low cost.

iOS 12 for iPhone brings bad news for iPhone hackers

So to all the people that held off paying $999, you might be in luck. In September, it's possible you could get an almost all-screen iPhone starting for as low as $600. The 6.5-inch iPhone X successor with an OLED screen could still cost between $900 and $1,000, Kuo forecasts, so save up.

The Dark Side of Psychedelic – Ivana Veljović – Medium

Psychedelics are tools that can be used in different ways. They can be used for healing, inducing spiritual experiences, or for nonethical experiments. The way forward safely and intelligently is to understand protections we have available to us. The power of psychedelics is to open the mind to new information, not simply to make the world look better than it is. It’s to address the shadow side of life. Psychedelics help to understand the life, not by giving us all answers, but they dismantle unhealthy beliefs that shadow our vision. They offer anew perspective to worldviews and because of this, a new and more relevant understanding of the actual world we live in.

How the 22nd century should remember Trump

And at that point we're basically in the timeline foreseen by the 20th century's foremost future historian, science fiction writer Robert Heinlein. In 1953, Heinlein described a folksy, racist, populist TV preacher winning the White House with a minority of the popular vote — in the election of 2012. (What's four years' difference at that many decades' distance, right?) This president then "needed stormtroopers" and so "revived the Ku Klux Klan in all but name." America's economy stagnated, and elections soon became a thing of the past.

How to use the Firefox Multi-Account Containers extension

That's all there is to adding another layer of privacy to the Firefox browser. I highly recommend making use of this extension, especially if you depend upon social networking to help spread the word of your business or services. The last thing you want is to allow those sites to easily track your web footprint. With the Firefox Multi-Account Containers extension, you gain a bit of added privacy while also enabling you to use multiple accounts for any site you use. Give this extension a go, and see if it doesn't wind up becoming a permanent fixture in Firefox.

Microsoft gives Office a refreshed look and feel

“Word, Excel, and PowerPoint on Windows offer our deepest, richest feature set – and they’re the preferred experience for users who want to get the most from our apps,” the company writes in today’s announcement. “Users have a lot of ‘muscle memory’ built around these versions, so we plan on being especially careful with changes that could disrupt their work. We aren’t ready to bring the simplified ribbon to these versions yet because we feel like we need more feedback from a broader set of users first. But when we do, users will always be able to revert back to the classic ribbon with one click.”

Microsoft revealed the game during its Xbox E3 showcase. In Gears 5, you'll play as Kait Diaz, one of the key characters from Gears of War 4. Unlike prior entries in the franchise, it appears Microsoft has dropped "of War" for the series' fifth main entry.

Microsoft plans to fix its Xbox-exclusive problems with these five new studios

For Xbox gamers, this is likely going to mean plenty of new titles coming exclusively to Xbox or Microsoft Platforms. And, for fans of these studios, the monetary support from Microsoft should help them put out some great new content. Spencer even said the studios would have "creative independence," which should help ease any worries that Microsoft could spoil these studios. 

The Real Reason Apple and Google Want You to Use Your Phone Less

This week Apple follows Google by announcing features to help people cut back on their tech use. Why would the companies that make your phone want you to use it less? If tech is “hijacking your brain” with their “irresistible” products, as some tech critics claim, why are these companies now acting against their own interests? Perhaps the tech giants have had a change of heart or have been persuaded by public pressure to change their ways? Hardly.

Google's new ad settings will let you switch off adverts that know too much | ZDNet

"Turning off a factor means you'll no longer receive tailored ads related to it across our services, and on websites and apps that partner with us to show ads, as long as you're signed in to your Google Account. The ads you see can still be based on general factors, like the subject of what you're looking at or the time of day, or any other factor that is still turned on," Google explained in a blogpost .

Sweet deals on 3 totally unique speakers

As for the speaker, it begs the question: Why are all other speakers naked? The Scroll's lovely leather wrapper unfurls to form a base, exposing the grill enough for you to hear your tunes. This is easier shown than explained, hence the video. Is the casing just a gimmick? Maybe, but I find the overall design really slick, especially in contrast with the basic-brick design of so many other speakers.

Here's every power Jack-Jack has in Incredibles 2

OK, this one might be a stretch. Jack-Jack seems no older than 18 months, tops. Yet after spending a few days with Edna he can accurately mimic her walking gait and facial expressions. This is different from the metamorphosis power mentioned before. It could be that the kid is just a naturally skilled mimic (or it could just be a cartoon thing), but my kid was definitely not up to this level at 18 months. It's uncanny.

Google makes G Suite's App Maker generally available | ZDNet

Google pitches App Maker as a valuable tool for organizations that don't have room in their IT budgets for custom apps. Given that IT budgets typically prioritize big-ticket enterprise apps like CRM and ERP tools, it can be challenging to find resources for custom apps that focus on other needs, such as resolving help desk tickets.

Can Russian hackers be stopped? Here's why it might take 20 years | ZDNet

"I think the national security community has lacked a bit of creativity when it comes to thinking of the sheer scope and scale of a massive cyberattack, and the physical consequences that come from that, so I think the nuclear deterrent is interesting--it's part of the evolution of what is going to be a truly effective deterrence. We just don't know yet, and I don't think we will know for about 20 more years," said Rudolph.
