The one-night-only theatrical release of a new black-and-white cut of Logan was announced just three weeks in advance, with director James Mangold boasting a “ sumptuous ” experience for hardcore fans, and theaters announcing a black-and-white dress code for attendees. Brooklyn’s Alamo Drafthouse went so far as to post a disclaimer saying that moviegoers were “required” to wear black and white and the dress code would be “strictly enforced.” The self-serious dress code was later rescinded, but the posturing around Logan Noir continued unabated. There would be a Q&A session live-streamed from Brooklyn to all of the other participating theaters, featuring Mangold, producer Hutch Parker, and of course, Wolverine himself, Hugh Jackman. A week before the event, a press release went out sporting the heading “HIS TIME HAS COME.” There’s no real reason for Logan to get a black-and-white version other than Hugh Jackman, who Marvel fans are being asked to say goodbye to … [Read more...] about Logan Noir is a sweet, silly attempt to drag out Hugh Jackman’s goodbye
When Laura Cressman married her husband in 2012, she added an unconventional guest to her wedding party: the Dragon Runner, a small, unmanned military robot designed for urban combat. As "Mr. Roboto" played in the background, the Dragon Runner rolled down the aisle, controlled sight unseen by one of Cressman's friends. "The reaction was amazing," Cressman told Mashable in an email. "My favorite comment of the night was from my best friend Jeff: 'It really hit me how bad a dancer I was when the bomb disposal robot kept better rhythm on the dance floor than I did.'"

It's now been a full year since many Americans first entered lockdown for the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Since then, we've hit milestones both grave and hopeful. Still, masking is as important as ever: the CDC recently released new studies to support guidance on double-masking and further pleas to continue to wear masks, even for those who have been vaccinated. So as the SARS-CoV-2 virus continues to live on and evolve, so too does our guide to choosing and maintaining face masks. The same basic science still applies, as do the recommendations from the WHO and CDC. Changes in manufacturing, product availability, and newer, CDC-backed solutions have informed our latest updates. While there's little debate as to the efficacy of masks at this point, public discourse is turning more towards "How much longer?" That answer isn't yet clear, but making sure you have an effective mask is a crucial part of materializing, and perhaps for some, living in the "After Times." To that end, … [Read more...] about Mask up! How to choose and maintain the best masks for use against COVID-19 [Updated]

C’est une petite modification pour Zoom mais un grand pas pour ses utilisateurs. L’interface de l’application a quelque peu changé et devrait désormais rassurer les victimes de « Zoom-bombing », afflux massif d’invités indésirables qui se joignent à un appel vidéo sans le consentement de l’hôte, et ce dans le seul but d'ennuyer ses participants. Zoom est devenu très populaire ces dernières semaines, suite aux mesures de confinement et à l’explosion du télétravail. Logiciel de visioconférence complet, Zoom a été privilégié et recommandé par de nombreux utilisateurs, se permettant même de passer devant des applications de messagerie vidéo plus fiables telles que Skype. Mais après l’émulation, vient la désillusion. Depuis quelques jours, Zoom est régulièrement épinglé par les experts de sécurité informatique, les entreprises, voire même certains gouvernements, pour ses faiblesses en matière de confidentialité et de protection de la vie privée. Vos appels vidéo écoutés sur … [Read more...] about Les communications vidéo sur Zoom sont-elles enfin sûres ?
