  4. Enlarge / This was not a real slide from Google I/O 2022, but it could have been. (credit: Google / Ron Amadeo) Google held its I/O conference earlier this month, and for longtime Google watchers, the event felt like a seance. Google CEO Sundar Pichai stepped on stage for his keynote address and channeled the spirits of long-dead Google products. "I'm hearing... something about an Android tablet? And a smartwatch?" he seemed to say. By my count, "resurrecting the past" accounted for around half of the company's major announcements. In all of these cases, Google would be in a much stronger position if it had committed to a long-term plan and continuously iterated on that plan. Unfortunately, the company doesn't have that kind of top-down direction. Instead, for most of the resurrected products, Google is trying to catch up to competitors after years of standing still. There's a question we have to ask for every announcement: "Will things be different this time?" Read 38 remaining paragraphs | Comments View the full article

  6. Hi everyone, thank you so much for all these cool suggestions! I've been looking for this information for a long while, and you have no idea how lucky I feel to have bumped into this post. Besides being a big MLB fan, I've also played Minecraft for more than ten years. I thought I was the only one who successfully combined these two hobbies! Anyway, I have pals from the Best Faction Servers Minecraft platform who are incredibly intelligent and creative. They've been looking to put their abilities to use for a while, so I will show them this post. Cheers!
  7. Enlarge (credit: Qualcomm) Qualcomm's mid-cycle "plus" chip refresh—the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1—has been announced. As usual, Qualcomm is promising some modest improvements over the existing 8 Gen 1 chip. The company said the chip will provide "10 percent faster CPU performance," thanks to a 200 MHz peak CPU boost (up to 3.2 GHz now) and a 10 percent faster GPU. The real shocker is a "30 percent improved power efficiency" claim for the CPU and GPU. For the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Plus, Qualcomm is moving the chip from Samsung Foundry to TSMC, which is apparently where the power improvements are coming from. That's a serious slam against Samsung's 4 nm process versus TSMC's 4 nm process, but it lines up with earlier reports of troubles at Samsung Foundry. Swapping foundries as part of a mid-cycle upgrade is not normal, and it seems that Qualcomm has a bit of a salvage operation on its hands with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. The chip has not fared very well in the real world, with the CPU regularly turning in lower benchmark scores than 2021's flagship Snapdragon 888.

  8. Enlarge (credit: Anker/YouTube) If you have an M1-based Mac, Apple says you're limited to just one external monitor. But Anker, which makes power banks, chargers, docks, and other accessories, this week released a dock that it says will boost your M1 Mac's max monitor count to three. The $250 Anker 563 USB-C docking station, spotted by MacRumors, connects to a USB-C port on your computer (which doesn't have to be a Mac) and can also charge a laptop at up to 100 W. Of course, you'll also need to plug in the dock's 180 W power adapter. Once connected, the dock adds the following ports to your setup: 2x HDMI (version not specified) 1x USB-C (3.1 Gen 1): charges devices at up to 30 W 1x USB-A (3.1 Gen 1): charges devices at up to 7.5 W 2x USB-A (2.0) 1x 3.5 mm headphone jack 1x Ethernet Port selection. (credit: Anker) You'll need the two HDMI ports and DisplayPort to add three monitors to an M1 MacBook. There are some notable limitations, though.

  9. The Arkham series of games is definitely a cult, at least the trilogy. In its time, it earned praise from critics and viewers alike. But when the third part was released, I got a disc with another game in my hands, and playing this game, I forgot that I live, that I have some things to do and responsibilities. It was a great time. The game absorbed me with my head. Its name is Rust. This game was so big and not so vast that the players created a website https://totalrust.com. They collected various useful guides and information, a kind of Wikipedia on the world of one game.

  21. Dropping out of music school in the middle of a global pandemic might sound like a bad idea, but for Lizzy McAlpine, it was the opposite. After completing two years at Berklee College of Music in Boston, McAlpine decided to leave homework behind and focus on just releasing music instead. Most importantly, she wanted to release songs she wanted to release, not the one her followers on TikTok were obsessing over. “I feel like I have a love/hate relationship with TikTok,” she laughed during a phone conversation. “It’s definitely weird at times and can be hard to navigate or understand. The videos that I post that I think are stupid are the ones that do the best, and that’s really strange.” One example is “You Ruined the 1975 for Me,” a super-viral TikTok video with close to 2 million likes that McAlpine posted off the cuff, a somewhat petty reflection on how a band can get inextricably tied to one person, and how much that tie can hurt when they’re no longer in your life. And though the internet fell in love with McAlpine, sitting on her bathroom floor, riffing about an ex and Matty Healy’s music, that song doesn’t represent who she wanted to be as an artist. “cmon just finish it <3” reads one of 25,000 comments under the video snippet, this one posted as recently as March 2022. McAlpine’s response? “no<3” — and she’s still never released it. Instead, she gave the world her de facto debut album, Give Me a Minute, in August of 2020 as the pandemic shut down schools and offices, and left most people feeling way more isolated than the increasingly digital world had already made them feel. Technically preceded by an eight-song EP called Indigo released in 2018, McAlpine’s album resonated deeply, mostly due to her knack for unraveling the more twisted, difficult feelings we all face, and laying them out directly in terms that are poetic in their simplicity. “Pancakes For Dinner” became a streaming hit, Phoebe Bridgers praised her music, and McAlpine moved directly into working on new material instead of attending classes in the fall. (Credit: Gus Black) “I hadn’t listened to [Phoebe] until right before Give Me a Minute came out,” McAlpine says. “But she slid into my DMs like a month after the first record came out and was like ‘I love the record, I’m a big fan.’ And I was like what is happening? It was really wild. On this new record we referenced Punisher a lot, just because Ethan Grushka’s production is so fantastic we used that as a base.” Listeners will hear similarities between the two artists, as they both tackle life’s tougher moments with a solemn fearlessness, hushed vocals, and folk-pop instrumentation. In that same vein, Finneas is another like-minded artist who was also a fan of McAlpine’s work — and, eventually, became a collaborator as well. “With Finneas, I literally just DMed him and told him I thought he would sound really good on the song,” she says. “And like five minutes later he was like ‘Yes, send me the song. Here’s my number, I’m so psyched.’” Their collaboration, “Hate To Be Lame, became one of the standout tracks on Five Seconds Flat, and Finneas even invited McAlpine to perform it with him at Coachella last month, an experience she can only describe as “surreal.” Though her decision to leave college when she did was the right one for McAlpine, that doesn’t mean she knocked the process. Berklee was where she met her closest collaborator, producer and instrumentalist Philip Etherington, and also gave her a community of fellow artists and music lovers. “The best thing that I got out of Berklee was the people that I met,” she says. “It’s really good for making connections and meeting people. I’m very glad that I went, I met some of my best friends. I think it’s important to make connections, especially in music, and music school can definitely help with that. I don’t think you necessarily need to learn about songwriting to be a good songwriter. You can just write songs and you don’t need to go to class for it.” Perhaps now that she’s delivered Five Seconds Flat, a 14-track collection of songs that all easily eclipse that TikTok snippet, with wider scopes and much more nuanced reflection on how a relationship’s the failings is the work of both people, fans will focus on what this young artist has always been telling them — she has so much more to give. “With every project that I make, I’m growing in some way,” she says. “As a human but also as an artist. Making Give Me a Minute, we were just in Phillip [Etherington]’s tiny apartment in Boston, and we did most of it remotely because of the pandemic. With Five Seconds Flat, we had more time in his studio, working just us two. I wanted it to sound way different, so we were experimenting; it felt like we were growing together. That’s why I love working with Phillip, we’ve been working together from the beginning.” (Credit: Gus Black) For new listeners, both of McAlpine’s albums are well worth a spin, even if Five Seconds Flat sounds like the logical continuation and expansion of her sound on Give Me a Minute. McAlpine says she went into the process steering toward an indie rock sound, but in the end, the songs did what they wanted to. “I went into it with the idea that it would be indie rock,” she says. “But as we started making some of the songs I was like ‘Ok, not all of these fit into that category, so lets just make the songs how they’re meant to sound, and at some point they’ll all belong on the same record.’ Another element that helps bring all the disparate songs together, aside from McAlpine’s signature soft-spoken vocals, is a short film that she made to accompany the album. “I really like storytelling and scriptwriting,” she says. “So to incorporate that into my music was a huge thing for me. It was very fulfilling.” The next stage in her evolution is live performances and touring, elements that were understandably put on pause for an artist who broke out during the pandemic. Now that Five Seconds Flat is out in the world, McAlpine is embarking on a sold-out tour behind her new album. But don’t hold your breath for a certain song to make the setlist — instead, listen for new standouts, and keep an open mind.

  24. The youredm.com team came across this absolute bop a few weeks back. Ever since we’ve been playing Sophia at the office and watching her career pretty closely. What we noticed was a huge uptick in her song “Close To Me”. We reached out to Sophia’s team, and found this tune was released completely independently. No promotion or budget: just a diehard fan base and a few TikToks to let people know. A few months after the song dropped, they saw it start to move: “Close To Me” got added to hundreds of playlists on Spotify and has gone from about 25 streams/day to over 1,000. Sophia said: “One day I woke up and my numbers looked completely different. It did 22 streams on Wednesday, 600 on Thursday and the numbers just keep rising. I’m quite beside myself and so is my team. We’re just really excited.” Behind the boards on this track is former SonyATV/Stellar Songs Producer: C-Ray, with a hand lent on writing by the infamous Tatu – who’s known for her work with 24KGOLDN and Jeremih. We are certainly going to be keeping an eye out for every move Sophia makes, with the next being a single and video release for her song KissNTell, co-written by Grammy winner Autumn Rowe. We haven’t been this excited about an artist in years. Connect with Sophia Treadway below while you still can! This article was first published on Your EDM.

  26. Scharon Harding and iFixit's Kyle Wiens on the right to repair. Click here for transcript. (video link) The fight for the right to repair remains an active battle as various companies and lawmakers claim worries around safety, cybersecurity, and design innovation. But with concerns about e-waste, device quality, and the health of independent repair shops mounting, advocates like iFixit CEO Kyle Wiens are keeping their gloves up. In the lead up to Ars Technica's first annual Ars Frontiers event in Washington, DC, last week, we held a livestream with Wiens exploring this critical tech issue. Making a federal case of it Tech repairs got complicated in 1998 when Congress passed the Digital Millennium Copyright Act [PDF]. Section 1201 of the copyright law essentially made it illegal to distribute tools for, or to break encryption on, manufactured products. Created with DVD piracy in mind, it made fixing things like computers and tractors significantly harder, if not illegal, without manufacturer permission. It also represented "a total sea change from what historic property rights have been," Wiens said. Read 13 remaining paragraphs | Comments View the full article
  27. I am a sucker for crispy chicken. I am constantly craving (and cooking, and eating) chicken wings. I've made my entire apartment reek of oil just to fry chicken. I am legit ashamed of how many late-night orders of chicken tenders I've placed in my life. So it tracks that when I saw a viral TikTok recipe for simple, air fryer chicken nuggets, I had to give it a go. The recipe from @doosifit on TikTok promised tasty, healthy nuggets that were incredibly easy to make. Spoiler alert, I found that to be true. Here's what you need to know. SEE ALSO: The best air fryers for making crispy food faster than the oven IngredientsAbout 8 oz. of ground chicken Nacho cheese Quest chips Seasoning of your choice (I used salt, pepper, garlic powder, and chili powder) DirectionsSeason your chicken and mix it well to distribute the seasonings evenly. Shape the ground chicken into nuggets. Eight ounces should yield about eight nuggets. Dump your chips into a resealable plastic bag. After sealing the bag, smash the chips into crumbs. Dip the nuggets into the chip crumbs to form a crust. Air fry at 390 degrees for 10 minutes, flipping halfway through. Enjoy! Here's how the process looked for @doosifit. Just two real ingredients and ten minutes for homemade nuggets. Credit: Screenshots: TikTok / @doosifit The detailsOK, so first, a confession. We're always on a bit of tight schedule here at AirFryDay. And this week we had to ditch Mashable's office and film in my new apartment — which I just moved into Saturday — because of scary COVID levels in NYC. What I'm trying to say is I couldn't find Quest chips for the life of me. I searched two grocery stores, a CVS, and a Duane Reed. No dice. So...I had to ditch the whole "healthy" thing and use Spicy Nacho Doritos rather than the protein chips. The sacrifices I make for content. Now the actual process of making these nuggets is stupid easy. Like beyond simple. All you do is season some chicken then form nugget shapes out of that ground chicken. Basically just smoosh out a rectangle. Then you drop the nuggets in crushed chips and it coats itself. Ground chicken is incredibly sticky, so it takes zero effort to get the chips to stay on the nuggets. Then you just spray your air fryer with nonstick and plop the nuggets in. Here's how mine looked before being cooked. Ready to air fry. Credit: Mashable I air fried at 390 degrees for 10 minutes — flipping the nuggies halfway through — and bing, bang, boom I had a pretty decent lunch. Here's the finished product. Not bad! Credit: Mashable The verdict? Listen, this isn't gourmet. It's not even nuggets like you'll get from a fast food joint — all greasy, juicy, and crispy. But the air fryer nuggets are crunchy. And the recipe is easy. They're sort of a simpler cousin of the tender recipe I tested a few weeks ago. The lean ground chicken is a little dry and the crisp chips lose a little bit of crunch as they soak into the meat. Still, you get a relatively crunchy bite of chicken that's perfect to dip into your favorite sauce. The saltiness of the chips adds to the crust, even if it's not as good as a more complicated nugget. I don't think much would be lost subbing in the Quest chips for the Doritos, if you can get your hands on the healthier snack. The crust hardly even tasted like Doritos, it was more just a salty crunch, which I think any old chip could accomplish. All in all, in like 15 minutes total, this recipe yields a perfectly fine version of a chicken nugget. That's kind of the ideal for a viral air fryer recipe — something simple and tasty, ready in a pinch. View the full article
