Roku is giving its affordable Express a 4K upgrade, creating a new product that rivals not only the latest 4K streamers from Amazon and Google, but also our favorite streamer for the money, the Roku Streaming Stick Plus . Called the Express 4K Plus, the new $40 player arrives in mid-May. The small box keeps the same design as the HD-only Express but adds a faster, more powerful processor, dual-band Wi-Fi support and a voice remote. The point-anywhere voice remote is the biggest improvement over the older $40 Roku Premiere , which included an IR-based "simple" remote that lacked voice control. The remote included with the Express 4K Plus is basically the same remote as the one on the Streaming Stick Plus, complete with the ability to accept voice commands and control your TV via power, volume and mute buttons. It lacks the headphone jack, shortcut keys and near-field voice features of the new Voice Remote Pro , but it brings the Express 4K Plus up to remote parity … [Read more...] about Roku Express 4K Plus includes voice remote, TV control and HDR, costs just $40

In context: Epic Games has been spending the big bucks to compete against Steam. From free game offerings to signing exclusivity deals with third party developers, Epic has been somewhat successful at pulling more customers to its platform, but at what cost?

L'épisode 5 de Falcon et le soldat de l'hiver s'annonce comme un chapitre inoubliable. Non seulement, il devrait développer le cliffhanger dramatique de la semaine dernière, mais cerise sur le gâteau, il proposerait aussi l’un des caméos les plus exceptionnels jamais recensés dans le Marvel Cinematic Universe. Récemment, diverses rumeurs ont évoqué la participation du regretté Chadwick Boseman, décédé en août 2020, qui apparaîtrait pour la dernière fois en tant que Black Panther / Roi T'Challa. Une spéculation qui fait suite aux commentaires du showrunner Malcolm Spellman, évoquant auprès de ComicBook.com une intervention surprenante qui ferait pleurer dans les chaumières.

Dans une interview accordée à Vanity Fair , Nate Moore, producteur chez Marvel Studios, a déclaré qu’un caméo de M.
