It's got the same rectangular shape complete with curved edges that seem to blend right into the metal frame, and a deep black display. However, that's not a display, and that's not a smartwatch. Apple Watch fans will also immediately recognize the absence of the Digital Crown and the side button. Also, you shouldn't be able to see the time on a Watch with the screen turned off. This is just trolling of the highest order. H. Moser even compares the device to "a smartwatch which is powered off or in...

Yes, part of the fun of pretending to visit an alien world is seeing what its food and drinks are like, but the frozen "Night Blossom" -- with its layers of purple and green, topped with orange boba balls -- reminded me of a nightmare I was still trying to forget. In the name of journalism, however, I faced my fear and decided to try it -- and thankfully discovered the Pandora specialty was pretty good. According to the menu at the Pongu Pongu drink stand -- that translates to "Party Party" in Na'vi -- it's made up of limeade, apple and pear...

When J.K. Rowling wrote Harry Potter, she came up with an immersive world and history, which is now playing out in the form of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and its upcoming sequels.... However, a group of fans are filming an origin story of their own: Voldemort: Origins of the Heir. After watching the teaser trailer for this fan film, we have a question: Can we just get this one instead? The story follows a witch named Grisha Mac Laggen (heir to Griffindor and original character to this film), who suspects trouble when Hepzibah Smith, a descendant of the Hufflepuff family, was found murdered. The case goes cold, but Laggen suspects that there's some sort of dark magic at play, and she believes that former Hogwarts student and...

Cheetahs, ostriches, octopi, cockroaches and humans. For decades, robot makers have turned to animals to help them understand how to build a machine that can travel over Earth's diverse terrain.... "Almost any animal you can imagine has been used as inspiration for robots," says Aaron Johnson, a roboticist and professor of mechanical engineering at Carnegie Mellon University. That's because animals -- including humans -- are good at doing things that roboticists would like their machines to do, like picking things up, jumping or maneuvering over rubble. Robots have been built to imitate the dash of a cheetah, the dexterousness of an opossum's tail and the manipulative grasp of a human hand. "Rather than try to mimic exactly the same mechanism and behaviors of animals, we try understand the...

Napster's founder is nowSean Parker, best known for founding Napster and getting in early on Facebook, has a strange new line of work. The entrepreneur has a startup that's meant to let you watch new-release movies in the... comfort of your own home, in return for a small fortune. Obviously, the only way Parker is ever going to persuade a movie exec to let him do digital rentals of brand-new movies is with a bunch of anti-piracy features. So, a man whose piracy-enabling software probably caused DRM to become popular is now thinking of crafty ways to prevent piracy. Parker's startup, which has yet to launch, is called Screening Room. The basic concept is you'd pay $50 to stream a movie the same time it came out in theaters. The idea is that rather than paying $40 for four movie tickets, then buying popcorn, you'd...

So, I have what might be an unpopular opinion: there are cute dogs, and then there are pugs. With their squished little faces, buggy eyes, and snuffling breaths -- there's not much about pugs to... recommend them (and I like dogs). But now, at least, scientists have a better idea about the genetics that make these little canines look like they ran face-first into a wall. The category of squish-faced dogs, more correctly called brachycephalic dogs, also includes bulldogs, Boston Terriers, Shih Tzus, Pomeranians, and other breeds. Centuries of breeding have shortened their heads from front to back, and widened the roof of their mouths. The shape of their face can make it hard for these dogs to breathe, and their bugged out eyes are easily...

Scientists discovered the incident when they received a distorted image from the spacecraft on October 13th, 2014, which scientists determined was caused by a sudden movement from one of the orbiter's three cameras. After ruling out normal equipment activity such as movement from the solar panels or antenna, they concluded that it must have been from a meteoroid.

Roadtrip Review Redux: The Fujifilm X100F

DP Review - 28 May 2017 14:00
Roadtrip Review Redux: TheBeautiful flowers in golden sunlight along the southern California coast I had to leave all my musical instruments in Cincinnati when I first moved to Seattle three years ago. Recently, I found the... time to road trip back and collect them. Seattle is about as far removed from the rest of the United States as a major US city can be, while still being part of the 'lower 48'. This means that if you're headed a great distance East, there are a number of ways you can go. And when you work at DPReview,there are also a number of cameras you can take. Welcome to my journey down the West Coast, where I have decided to discuss one of my favorite cameras from the past couple of years to use as a point and shoot. That 'point and shoot' bit is very important. This is my vacation. All of these photos...

The World That Trump and Ailes Built

The New Yorker - 28 May 2017 11:00
Roger Ailes died recently, at the age of seventy-seven, during a week when the ground shook beneath a stumbling Donald Trump. The two men were in many things near: in age and appetites, in temper and... coarseness. They were also in many things far apart: in intelligence and energy, in talent and purpose. Ailes was formidable, Trump brittle. Ailes's decline began last summer, when he was forced out of Fox News. Trump's fall, if he falls, is still to come. And yet at times it has seemed as if the two men were Humpty and Dumpty, tumbling off a wall that they'd built together, to divide one half of the country from the other.

According to notable leaker Evan Blass, the... original concept for the phone could also feature a slide-out secondary display. Blass released a series of renders, cautioning that the images are older mock-ups, and it's not clear if the phone is actually going to feature the secondary display as imagined. The renders reveal a primary screen that could slide up to reveal a second one under it, which could be used for a keyboard, search results, or additional controls that might otherwise obstruct what you're looking at.
