The Killing Joke Movie Is a Disaster, Right Down to Its Comic-Con Panel

We thought if we were going to expand this to feature length, we didn’t want to just pad out the original story... So we took that opportunity to basically tell a Batgirl story, which we don’t often get a chance to do these days. And it was great, because we could spend more time with her as a character and get to understand what she’s all about and how she’s similar to Batman in some ways, and really different in others. .... The good side of that is we get to spend more time with her and learn that she’s an interesting character. The bad side of that is that we get to like her so much that when The Killing Joke part of the story happens, it’s, like, “Oh, no!”, because we really like her.

Mossberg: I just deleted half my iPhone apps — you should too

Over the past few days, I’ve methodically deleted 165 apps from my iPhone, about 54 percent of the 305 apps I had on the phone when I started culling the herd. When I was done, I had significantly decreased the phone’s clutter: I’d gone from 15 home screens to eight, and reclaimed nearly 8GB of free space, about a 24 percent gain in my case.

26 Hidden Chrome Features That Will Make Your Life Easier

These numbers are based on visitors to W3's site, so they aren't a definitive representation of the greater population; Net Applications gave Chrome about 35 percent of the global browser market share in January, for example. But numbers aside, Chrome is a popular browser, and if you're not using it, you should at least consider checking it out.

Transistors Will Stop Shrinking in 2021, Moore’s Law Roadmap Predicts

The new report embraces these trends, predicting an end to traditional scaling—the shrinking of chip features—by the early 2020’s. But the idea that we’re now facing an end to Moore’s Law “is completely wrong,” Gargini says. “The press has invented multiple ways of defining Moore’s Law but there is only one way: The number of transistors doubles every two years.”

Comic-Con 2016: Marvel Gives Deadpool a Shakespearean Makeover - IGN

There's no end to the sorts of crazy adventures Deadpool can get into in his spare time. Today at the Diamond Comic retailer Presentation at Comic-Con, Marvel revealed their ambitious plans for October's Deadpool #21. Not only will this issue feature a standard-length tale from regular writer Gerry Duggan and artist Matteo Lolli, it'll also include a 60-page backup story that drags Deadpool back to Shakespearean times. Deadpool will try his hand at iambic pentameter and bump elbows with plenty of familiar faces.

Comic-Con 2016: Joss Whedon Would Direct a Black Widow Movie if Marvel Asked - IGN

During an interview with IGN, Joss Whedon said he would be down to direct a Black Widow solo film. He developed and fleshed out the character over the course of two Avengers movies, there's been a huge surge of fans wanting to see her get a solo feature, and he recently said if he ever came back to Marvel that it would be to do something female-driven, so it seems an obvious fit.

Comic-Con 2016: What We Saw from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 - IGN

And he is. Yondu and Rocket ask the mute Groot to retrieve a prototype weapon for them so they can escape, but Groot doesn’t quite seem to understand, as he keeps bringing a series of very off-the-base objects back to the duo (even dragging a desk in to the cell area at one point). But finally Rocket is able to communicate with his old partner (or is this the offspring of the original Groot?), and the weapon is delivered. Fans of the old Guardians comics will immediately recognize the device: It’s a mechanical version of Yondu’s Mohawk, which he puts on his head, breaks out of the jail, and immediately starts taking out Ravagers using the thing’s enhanced ability to control his deadly space arrow.

Star Trek's William Shatner on Leonard Nimoy: 'He was my brother'

Star Trek has been one of the biggest draws at this year's convention, as the iconic sci-fi property celebrates its 50th anniversary. Aside from the new film's premiere -- where organizers went all out with a fireworks show and a concert from the San Diego Symphony Orchestra, which played the movie's score -- there have been several panels and exhibits on the show. Those included a panel on the science of Star Trek and an exhibit of artwork commemorating its characters. One brewery even debuted an official Star Trek beer .

This was the first test, and it was really successful. We intended to fly it for 30 minutes, and it was doing so well that we actually kept it up for 90 minutes. One thing that really excited the team and me is that the design ended up being even more efficient than we’d guessed, and it used even less power to stay up than we thought. We did pick up a lot of telemetry and data, and there were some things that we want to tweak. We’ll do another test flight, and at some point soon we’ll test the solar-powered plane with the communications payload in it. That way we can test it actually beaming down connectivity. We’ve tested that piece separately — that’s a lot easier to test without the plane. That whole side of things is really awesome, too. We have this laser communications system which can beam data at tens of gigabits per second, which is 10 times faster than anything that’s existed before.

Star Trek: Discovery Officially Takes Place in the Prime Universe

In a packed panel during San Diego Comic-Con, the name of the new Star Trek series—which, in the grand tradition of Star Trek , is also the name of the ship—was revealed. In a press conference after the panel, executive producers Bryan Fuller and Heather Kadin gave just a few more details about the show.

Sound Art Shows You What Musical Notes Actually Look Like

Louviere vibrated the water with the amp by adjusting the generator’s frequency. As he did so, he used his tuner to seek out the frequency of each of the 12 notes—A, B, C through G, plus the five halftones. While Louviere dialed the knobs, Brown stood on a ladder above the contraption illuminating the water with a ring light, her camera in hand. When the tuner registered a note—reading 220 hertz, the frequency that produces an A, for instance—Louviere stopped adjusting. As each note’s unique vibration induced its characteristic pattern into the water, Brown captured it with her camera. The pair worked together to obtain a “portrait” of each of the 12 notes.

'Gears of War 4' will have plenty of PC-specific features

Other perks? There's a benchmarking mode to make you feel good about your hardware upgrades , and you have full control over the keyboard and mouse input. In short, this should feel like a PC-native game even though it's likely to be the definitive Xbox One title for 2016. That's still not going to make everyone happy (developers have railed against UWP's closed ecosystem for years), but it beats having to deal with console-like limitations just to play some big Xbox hits on your Windows gaming rig.

Building as a modular gadget

Researchers Look At Ancient Poop To Discover The History of Infectious Diseases

“When I first saw the Chinese liver fluke egg down the microscope I knew that we had made a momentous discovery,” said Hui-Yuan Yeh, one of the study’s authors. “Our study is the first to use archaeological evidence from a site on the Silk Road to demonstrate that travelers were taking infectious diseases with them over these huge distances.”

The assimilation of robots into the workforce as peers, not replacements

Her job was really, really hard. She had to take hopelessly vague tasking like: “Give me a George Clooney haircut but kind of a bit more fun and crazy.” What does that mean? I can pretty well guarantee that a robot won’t ever know what that means. Regardless of trying to understand the semantics, a much harder task is figuring out how many small scissor cuts will result in an emerging look. Cutting hair is not an easy job; I know I could never do it. I believe it would scare any robot as well.

The show is also getting a proper name today, Star Trek Discovery.

A Colorado Town Has No Reason To Freak Out About THC in its Water [Updated]

According to the Denver Post , it was a Hugo-based company that first raised the alarm. After getting “inconsistent” results when using a THC field test (not unlike a pregnancy test) on its employees, the company decided to test the water and was surprised to see it come back positive. This prompted an investigation by the county, which performed ten field tests with two different kits, yielding six positive results.

‘The Revenant’ bear mauls Comic-Con: Adam Savage's latest costume includes dead DiCaprio

What was the trickiest part?  I don’t want the bear’s face to look like taxidermy. I want tit to look more furry and less fuzzy. This was a real departure for me because I’m not trying to copy something somebody else designed, I’m making this from scratch. This feels like a whole different skill set to bring to bear, so to speak. And I like where it moves the discussion about costuming. This bear is from such a totally different place — it’s not a high quality replica, it’s a costume I felt the need to make and put on. I love that it’s so weird and different it gives it a different kind of permission. Some of my favorite costumes are the ones made by people without a lot of money. I want people to be inspired.

Check Out the Hulk's Gladiatorial Armor From Thor: Ragnarok

Chuck Wendig's final Aftermath novel will help set up The Force Awakens

Wendig's  Aftermath trilogy is part of the new continuity that the Star Wars Story Group has been setting up in place of the franchise’s Expanded Universe. It’s no small task: Wendig is helping to filling in a now vacated three-decade gap that leads to The Force Awakens .  The battle has already been featured in Star Wars: Battlefront , and is the cause for the crashed Star Destroyer on Jakku that figured prominently in the first act of The Force Awakens.

Phones without headphone jacks are here... and they're annoying AF

I know transition periods are painful. It was hard moving from Apple's 30-pin connector on the iPod and iPhone 4S (and older) to Lightning. I had to buy new docks and new cables. I'm sure Apple and all the accessory makers really raked in the dough then and they're going to do so again when people have to buy new Lightning headphones.

Neil Gaiman Could Not Be Happier With the American Gods TV Series

For example, Gaiman said that he gave them all 4,000 years of history on the leprechaun Mad Sweeney (Pablo Schreiber) and that “maybe” that’d be worked into the series. Gaiman also said that, when he wrote the first draft of the book, he had a portion set in a Japanese internment camp during World War II and there was a whole “kitsune” (the Japanese word for “fox,” which has a large role in Japanese mythology as a spirit) story that he eventually had to cut. “So maybe I’ll just persuade Bryan [Fuller] to do that story at some point,” Gaiman said. “Or maybe that will be in the next American Gods book if I do another novel, which is seeming more and more likely these days.”

How to track and find rare Pokémon in 'Pokémon Go'

These apps are a relatively new tool in helping trainers catch rare Pokémon. The most popular, Poke Radar , jumped to the No. 2 spot in the U.S. App Store just two days after it was released. It lets users map where they've found certain types of Pokémon in a given city and allows other users upvote or downvote submissions as quality control. The methodology here is that certain Pokémon tend to reappear in the same spot after a given time period. While this method may be new and untested, it certainly can't hurt in your quest to find Snorlax.

'Inhumans vs. X-Men' is the next major Marvel Comics battle

We saw the X-Men battle the Avengers in 2012, which set into motion events that reverberated throughout Marvel Comics for years. Can we expect similar consequences here?    JL : Absolutely. This is a huge story with wide-ranging implications and consequences. It will set up events in both the Mutant and Inhuman worlds for years, but also the wider Marvel Universe.    CS : Part of the fun of an event like this is that all the stories we’ve been telling in our books (and by “we” I mean not just Jeff and myself, but all the Inhuman and X-Men writers over the past few years) are essentially a big line of dominoes we’ve been setting up. We get to knock them over in IvX , but then we get to start setting up the next big thing. The circle of comics life!    Is this a fair fight? Aren't there significantly more Inhumans than X-gene carriers?    JL : Like any large group of people, neither the Mutants nor Inhumans act like they have a hive mind. Meaning they are a diverse group, with many points of view and many agendas. So it’s not so black and white. There are not simply two sides to this battle.

Top 10 Pokémon Go Tips, Tricks and Cheats

While Pokémon Go is designed to be played on foot or while biking, you can get a lot done during your commute. Users are reporting that as long as you’re going below 20 miles and hour, the distance will count against your Pokémon hatching and power-ups. So next time you’re taking the bus or an Uber, fire up Pokémon Go.
