James TrewManaging EditorStill waiting for Half Life 3? I can empathize. New material for the 30-year old Atari Lynx is (understandably) rare, but fans of the original color hand-held are a patient bunch. The trickle of content we do get is often barely more than a playable demo or a simple puzzle game. Wyvern Tales, created single-handedly by Jasper van Turnhout (under his Nomad Studio imprint) is the rarest of beasts: a new Lynx game with -- gasp! -- hours of play, a storyline, strategy and cute '90s-era graphics. You scoff, but this is a big deal for the hundred(s?) of people like me who refuse to let the Lynx die.Wyvern Tales is special for a few more reasons. For one, it's an RPG, which means it plugs a decades-long hole in the Lynx's (already limited) library. Atari's IP at the time (well, at all times, really) was mostly arcade titles. If you liked platformers in 1992, for example, Nintendo and Sega were where it was at.While everyone else was enjoying platform-specific versions … [Read more...] about What we’re playing: A new Atari Lynx game in 2018
Behold i will do a new thing
I fell into my mission by accident — it certainly seemed like an accident that Wikipedia took off as successfully as it did. It might have been what we wanted and planned for, but that it did take off was as much a surprise to me as anyone. Anyway, Wikipedia’s success led to a discovery about myself, that — at least when it comes to Internet projects — more than anything, I want to develop communities in which people come together to improve the world’s knowledge. I started building online groups on a smaller scale in the mid-1990s, with academic discussion groups. Such groups are actually how Jimmy Wales (the other co-founder of Wikipedia) and I got to know each other. I still very much believe in the ideal of collecting “the sum total of human knowledge.” That is, I think, a very worthwhile mission. But I also believe we can do much better than Wikipedia. I’m a philosopher at heart, though I haven’t taught … [Read more...] about Wikipedia co-founder’s 8,000-word essay on how to build a better Wikipedia
Richard Feloni, provided by Published 5:33 pm, Saturday, April 7, 2018 Sarah Jacobs/Business Insider Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards has a new memoir called "Make Trouble." Richards brought Planned Parenthood back to its movement roots and has defended it from members of Congress throughout her tenure. Planned Parenthood provides a wide variety of women's health services across the United States, but its abortion services have made it one of the most controversial organizations in the country. Richards told Business Insider that she's been inspired throughout her career by her late mother, Texas Governor Ann Richards, and her upbringing in an activist family.

ThinkPads are unmistakable. While other OEMs focus on achieving the thinnest and lightest chassis, the perfect shade of rose gold to attract the masses, and nearly invisible bezels, Lenovo has given the ThinkPad family thoughtful updates that keep its original focus and also attempt to stay on top of the newest laptop design and use innovations. The 2018 ThinkPad X1 Carbon combines a familiar yet durable and sleek design with a few new features—an HDR-ready screen, a webcam shutter, and new mics. While these are small updates overall, they show that Lenovo continues to pay attention to what its customers want as well as what they may want in the future. The new X1 Carbon reminds us all that Lenovo's classic laptop line can hold its own against flashier, trendier competing devices—it can even outshine them in some ways. Look and feel Lenovo has given ThinkPad diehards plenty of reasons to love these premium work laptops, and the sixth-gen ThinkPad X1 Carbon doesn't … [Read more...] about ThinkPad X1 Carbon 2018 review: The only laptop in a professional’s paradise
0. phoneArena posted on yesterday, 10:38 Copycat legalities aside, the "notch" allows a manufacturer to boast extremely high screen-to-body ratios. The new Asus Zenfone 5 boasts 83.69% of it in our benchmark calculations, which is a bit higher than the iPhone X's 82.35%, as the Zenfone has narrower notch, and still, the Galaxy S9, which sports an oldfashioned uninterrupted, but very thin top bezel, beats them both with 84.36%, and only gives way to the Essential Phone's 84.85%, but this one has the most minimalistic "notch" of them all.
