    The one-of-a-kind music festival Le Guess Who? will return to Utrecht this Nov. 9-12. Today the event has announced its guest curators for 2023 — the legendary Stereolab, acclaimed mastering engineer Heba Kadry, ambient jazz composer Nala Sinephro, and Standing On The Corner’s Slauson Malone 1 — and shared the program each of them has assembled, in addition to the general festival lineup.

  2. Jeff-Rosenstock-_LIKED-U-BETTER_-Single-

    Last we heard from Jeff Rosenstock in February, he was joining fellow ska revivalist JER in a ska-reimagining of Vampire Weekend’s “A-Punk.” Last fall, he and Laura Stevenson released their second EP of Neil Young covers. Prior to that, we got 2020’s NO DREAM and its ska reinterpretation SKA DREAM — not to mention the quarantine collection 2020 DUMP. Today, Rosenstock is announcing a big fall/winter US tour and sharing a brand-new song: “LIKED U BETTER.”

    Militarie Gun are just releasing the songs from their official debut LP Life Under The Gun in order, and why not? The first two, “Do It Faster” and “Very High,” were among the best hardcore-informed pop-rock songs of the year. The album’s third track, “Will Logic,” is another fine example of Ian Shelton shout-singing over violently catchy guitar work and a rhythm section hard enough to crack your skull.

  4. The RTX 4060 Ti Founders Edition.

    Nvidia's announcement of the GeForce RTX 4060 series last week broke the pricing trend set by every other RTX 4000-series card released so far: The 4060 Ti is launching at the same price as its predecessor, and the 4060 is actually getting a small price cut.

    But these cards also continued a trend that we noted in our RTX 4070 review—compared to past generations, the performance upgrade just isn't as impressive. The $400 RTX 3060 Ti could match or beat a $700 RTX 2080 Super from the previous generation. The 4060 Ti... well, it can definitely beat a 3060 Ti.

    It's a very capable mid-range graphics card that's great at 1080p and can often stretch to 1440p. It gives you more performance and lower power consumption at the same price you'd pay for a 3060 Ti yesterday. And it does all of the Ada Lovelace architecture's special tricks, like DLSS Frame Generation and hardware-accelerated AV1 video encoding. But it doesn't bring last generation's high-end performance down to a more reasonable price the way older Nvidia cards have.

  5. Jeff-Beck-tribute-1684844827.jpg

    In January, the iconic British blues-rock guitar hero Jeff Beck died at the age of 78. Beck had suffered from a brief illness, but his passing was sudden and unexpected. Soon afterward, Beck’s peers and admirers put together an all-star tribute at London’s historic Royal Albert Hall. The show happened last night, and it featured a whole lot of guitar legends on the same stage at the same time.

  6. Mimestream's got a lot of direct Gmail integrations, but its own Profiles separation is quite useful.

    When I searched for the best Mac email clients for Gmail/Google Apps users in September, I was surprised to find that there was an app built specifically for this purpose. You didn't need to customize it, change its settings, or bolt on a bunch of extensions to make it work and feel right; Mimestream was both deeply hooked into Gmail and very much a Mac app.

    Mimestream spent more than three years in a free beta period, releasing more than 220 updates for 167,000 users and adding more than 100 features. Now that a 1.0 release is out—and the company has grown from a solo developer to a five-person team—there's a price for the product.

    Mimestream is $30 per year if you buy during this launch period, then $50 per year after that (if you were a beta user, check your inbox for a bigger discount code). There's still a 14-day, no-credit-card-required trial period. Individual users can install it on up to five devices, and there's Family Sharing across iCloud accounts.

    Blur are back in action, and it feels so good. Last week the Britpop greats announced their first album in eight years, The Ballad Of Darren, and returned to the stage with a homecoming underplay in Colchester featuring new songs and rarely heard classics. They brought some more rarities to another warmup show Sunday at Winter Garden in Eastbourne, as well as a reunion with primary “Parklife” bloke Phil Daniels.

  8. HP OfficeJet Pro 9025e printer

    A firmware update has rendered several models of HP OfficeJet printers useless for weeks. As reported by Bleeping Computer on Saturday, a recent firmware update inadvertently left many users with devices that won't print and will only display a dreaded blue screen.

    HP's support forums are currently littered with users complaining that their printer is no longer functioning and that its screen has turned blue with the error code "83C0000B " displayed. The issue goes back as early as May 8. According to Bleeping Computer, the issue is impacting owners of OfficeJet 902x printers.

    At least one HP rep on the forum had previously suggested that the error came from "a problem with the printer's head." However, Bleeping Computer has reported that the issue is due to a firmware update released in May.

    Here it is: Absurdist Adult Swim variety show host extraordinaire meets pop-star provocateur and internet-breaking meme lord in the epic showdown you’ve all been waiting for. Or something! Of the many celebrity guests announced for The Eric Andre Show’s “sexy season six,” Lil Nas X seemed like one of the most obviously attuned to the series’ wavelength. He nonetheless still seems somewhat disoriented in a brief preview clip “filled with mysterious gases and strange furniture,” watchable below.

    Def Leppard drummer Rick Allen was tackled to the ground while smoking in the valet area outside a hotel in Fort Lauderdale back in March while on tour with the band. At the time, he told local reporters that he intended to prosecute his attacker, 19-year-old Max Hartley. Allen injured his head upon being tackled and has since been recovering at home in Sheffield, UK. Now, ahead of Leppard’s UK and European tour kickoff tonight, he’s given his first proper interview since the incident, sitting down with Good Morning America.

  11. Bike rider delivery DoorDash in Manhattan

    A class-action lawsuit claims that DoorDash uses hard-to-pin-down delivery fees to systematically charge the delivery service's iPhone users more than others.

    The lawsuit (PDF), filed May 5 in the District of Maryland, came in hot. Plaintiff Ross Hecox, in addition to his two children and a presumptive class of similarly situated customers, briefly defines DoorDash as an online marketplace with 32 million users and billions of dollars in annual revenue.

    "Yet, DoorDash generates its revenues not only through heavy-handed tactics that take advantage of struggling merchants and a significant immigrant driver workforce, but also through deceptive, misleading, and fraudulent practices that illegally deprive consumers of millions, if not billions, of dollars annually," the suit adds. "This lawsuit details DoorDash’s illegal pricing scheme and seeks to hold DoorDash accountable for its massive fraud on consumers, including one of the most vulnerable segments of society, minor children."

  12. Motorola is still not giving up on the whole idea of a flexible-display Razr phone, and the company actually has a fourth generation of the device coming up. The launch date is already official, set for June 1. The new Razr line comprises all new-school flip phones that are about the size of a normal smartphone when open, but when you're done with them, the whole device, including the screen, can fold in half, giving you a smaller square to fit into your pocket.

    There are two models of the upcoming device, called either the "Razr 40 Ultra" or "Razr+, and a cheaper model that might end up being called the Razr 40. Legendary leaker Evan Blass has been all over the release of this phone, sharing press images and other details, while MySmartPrice has leaks of the cheaper model. We don't necessarily know every tiny difference between the two models, but the big difference will be the cover display.

    These foldable devices are closed a lot of the time, so an outer display is very useful for the 100-plus times a day you check your phone—it's nice to just quickly look at it without needing to open up the phone. The Ultra model is going for about as big of a front display as possible, including wrapping around the two primary cameras that live in the bottom-right corner of the front of the phone. Working around all that dead space is going to make for some interesting software design decisions. The cheaper model, meanwhile, has a much smaller display, similar to the first-generation Galaxy Flip. It's a tiny little thing to the left of the camera array and can only show smartwatch-style widgets.
