'Game of Thrones' finale defended by 'Seinfeld' star Jason Alexander

Wednesday May 22nd 2019

Game of Thrones is done and dusted, wrapping up its polarising eighth and final season with an equally debated finale.

While many have criticised the final episode of the beloved HBO series, there are some who have jumped to defend it.

And if anyone knows a thing or two about polarising TV series finales, it's the Seinfeld cast.

Star of the legendary sitcom Jason Alexander, better known as your ol' pal George "Can't-Stand-Ya" Constanza, has offered up kind words for the Game of Thrones crew on Twitter.

"I know a little something about finales and disappointed fans," he wrote on Tuesday.

"My advice: live in joy that you are part of something that moves people so. You were all magnificent. My family and I loved it all. Thanks." Read more...

Google stored some users' passwords in plain text for years

Wednesday May 22nd 2019

Google has revealed it had left some business users' passwords exposed in plain text.

In a blog post on Tuesday, the tech giant said it had discovered the issue in Google's popular enterprise product, G Suite, back in January. 

When stored in a system, passwords are cryptographically hashed — scrambled into a random-looking assortment of numbers — which make it near-impossible to try and guess what it is. 

The bug, which had existed since 2005, stored an unhashed, plain text copy of the password in G Suite's administration console. The console had allowed administrators to reset a password for a user, in case they forgot it, but Google said the function no longer exists. Read more...

Amazon prevails in battle with South American countries for ‘.amazon’ domain name

Tuesday May 21st 2019

E-commerce giant Amazon has prevailed in its domain name battle with Amazon, the geographic region in South America.

The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, or ICANN, has approved of Amazon’s proposal to run the top level domain name extension “.amazon” after a 7 year dispute with more than a half dozen countries, according to the Financial Times.

The dispute was backed by the Amazon Cooperation Treaty Organisation (ACTO), a group promoting the development of the Amazon Basin. Its member states include Brazil, Peru, Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador, Guyana, Suriname, and Venezuela. Read more...

Ben Carson mixed up the real estate term 'REO' with Oreo cookies

Tuesday May 21st 2019

Can you picture a scenario in which Oreo cookies are discussed at a House Financial Services Committee hearing?

No? That's OK. No need to imagine hypotheticals, because as it turns out, on Tuesday HUD Secretary Ben Carson name-dropped the popular Nabisco sandwich cookie on the stand. He accidentally mixed Oreo cookies up with REO, a common real estate term. Casual!

After California Congresswoman Katie Porter asked Carson to explain a disparity in REO rates, she took the time to confirm that he actually knew what REO stood for. And it's a good thing she double checked, because Carson most certainly did not know. Read more...

Comcast, a trusted company, wants to monitor you with a smart device

Tuesday May 21st 2019

It looks like you fell down. Someone will be there between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. to assist you. 

Yes, that's right, everyone's favorite and definitely trusted company, Comcast, is working on a smart  device of some kind with voice-interactive features to monitor customers' health. The news, first reported by CNBC, was independently confirmed by Mashable. The tracker will be pilot tested laster this year. 

Importantly, unlike the Google Home or Amazon Echo, Comcast's foray into in-home devices won't search the web or recite the forecast. Instead, it will reportedly track customer bathroom trips, and how much time they spend in bed. The company is also reportedly working on a way to track if customers have fallen down in their homes.  Read more...

Tesla hires the 'absolute unit' meme guy to run its social media

Tuesday May 21st 2019

Tesla has reportedly hired Adam Koszary, the man responsible for the "absolute unit" meme, as its new social media manager.

Koszary, who used to work as the program manager for the Museum of English Rural Life, is known for tweeting a photo of a large ram from the museum's account in April 2018. The caption: "Look at this absolute unit." 

A lot of people did look at that absolute unit, and thus a genuinely good meme was born.

look at this absolute

— The Museum of English Rural Life (@TheMERL) April 9, 2018

But nothing gold can stay. After a full calendar year in the "wholesome" category, the meme was ruined last month when Tesla founder and CEO Elon Musk saw it in a tweet from the MIT Technology Review, then decided he liked it. He even changed his Twitter avatar to the sheep (an Exmoor Horned aged ram) and his bio to "absolūt unit." (Both have since been removed.) In response, the museum changed its avi to a photo of Musk. It was a whole thing, but at least Elon wasn't getting in trouble with the SEC for it. Read more...

This 'Game of Thrones' meme is brilliant and should be studied in any film class

Tuesday May 21st 2019

Warning: The following post contains spoilers for the finale of Game of Thrones

Game of Thrones may have come to an underwhelming end, but the memes keep on giving. The film boys are out, and they have takes.

While not all fans were pumped with how the show ended, it has always been visually stunning, aside from a few wayward beverages. From the incredibly detailed costumes to the shots of sweeping landscapes, we can at least agree on one thing: Game of Thrones is beautiful. But one cinephile took to Twitter to emphasize just how amazing the one scene in the finale was. 

Fresh off her murderous rampage after destroying the city she tried to liberate, Daenerys turns to face her army of Unsullied and Dothraki soldiers. As she walks toward her force, her dragon opens his wings and takes flight, and the queen appears to have dragon wings sprouting from her back, too.  Read more...

The 6 Oculus Quest games everyone should get on day one

Tuesday May 21st 2019

Can Oculus Quest change the game for virtual reality? Titles like Beat Saber and Vader Immortal could have the answer.

The new VR headset became available on Tuesday for $399. It doesn't pack the same power as the Oculus Rift S, which needs to be connected to a high-powered PC. But it has a couple of big advantages. Namely, no wires and inside-out tracking (which means no need for external sensors). It's a self-contained gaming console that you can take with you wherever you go.

The Quest launches with a big library of games and other software to check out. Read on for the games you absolutely need to consider if you're taking the plunge into this new Oculus platform. Read more...

What makes a kart racing game great? Because 'Team Sonic Racing' doesn't have it.

Tuesday May 21st 2019

Team Sonic Racing is a huge disappointment. 

Yes, it’s a very mediocre and even frustrating kart racing game, but what really makes it such a bummer is the fact that its predecessor, Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed, is perhaps the best kart racing game of all time.

Perhaps my own expectations were too high, but Team Sonic Racing gave me whiplash. It’s astounding how a series could regress so much and seem to ignore every aspect that made it stand out from the kart racing pack. 

Where did Team Sonic Racing go wrong? And what exactly makes kart racing game great?

Let’s take a step back real quick.
