Refresh 2021-10-22T04:56:17.105Z GameStop PS5 restocks in-store events remain rare The last time there was an in-store PS5 restock event in the US, it was at GameStop nearly one month ago (Friday, September 29). These in-person events are rare ; most times we see PS5 for sale online. There have been three PS5 restock in-store events so far in 2021 – besides the two at GameStop in the last 23 days ago, Best Buy also had a restock on September 23. Our inside sources say Walmart is holding back PS5 console inventory for Black Friday 2021 . We're back reporting live from the second GameStop restock event – and third overall in the US. 2021-10-22T05:46:39.785Z How early do you have to line up at GameStop? It varies greatly and sometimes GameStop stores in major city centers see fewer people waiting overnight. In suburbs, there are more people, though, rules sometimes prevent camping for consoles (and other wares) at malls. In those cases, it's a scramble … [Read more...] about GameStop PS5 restock: time, store locations, bundles, crowds – and when to get it next

Google's Pixel phones have been the spark behind today's incredible computational photography revolution – and the new Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro look to once again break new imaging ground with some impressive new camera tricks. The two phones have powerful camera hardware, including 50MP wide cameras and 12MP ultrawides (with 4x optical zoom on the Pixel 6 Pro). But it's actually their new software features, driven by Google's new Tensor chip , that are the most interesting part of the Pixel range's photographic story. Google has previously established its camera supremacy in areas like Night Sight, but this time the approach is a little different. The Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro have modes designed to overcome limitations in the hardware, your skill as a photographer and even in the scene you’re trying to capture. These new modes are Magic Eraser, Face Unblur and Motion mode. They offer effects you can recreate in Adobe Photoshop and comparable image editing suites, but … [Read more...] about The Pixel 6’s AI camera tricks explained – and why they’re a threat to Photoshop
Whether you're getting Apple's new iPhone 13 or holding onto a 6-year-old iPhone 6S , iOS 15 is now available for download . The new operating system was in public beta for months undergoing a variety of tweaks leading to its final release. I've been testing iOS 15's new features, and everything from bigger additions like FaceTime call web links for friends on Android and Windows to smaller changes like pinning conversations to the top of the Messages app has improved my iPhone -- without disrupting my day. On the whole, iOS 15 feels like a continuation of iOS 14 , which felt like a continuation of iOS 13. These three updates are like a movie trilogy, but unlike The Lord of the Rings there isn't an ominous Eye of Sauron looming over your every move, just Siri. Following in the smart footsteps of iOS 13 and 14, iOS 15 lets you decide how much you want to change your iPhone experience. For instance, in Safari the tab bar can be moved to the bottom of your … [Read more...] about iOS 15 review: Focus mode, FaceTime web links and live text are game-changers
The iPhone 13 and 13 Mini received a number of significant upgrades including new cameras , a bigger battery , more storage and a brighter screen. The iPhone 13 is a delightful upgrade to last year's already wonderful iPhone 12 family. Some will be disappointed because it's not radically different from previous models, but that's actually part of the charm. Familiarity has been one of the keys to Apple's success with the iPhone, and the iPhone 13 and 13 Mini are those same reliable friends that seemingly never change. The iPhone 13 starts at $829 (£779, AU$1,349) and the 13 Mini at $729 (£679, AU$1,199). That's for the base model, which comes with 128GB of storage. If you buy and activate your phone on a carrier plan, that price drops by $30, and that's before adding on the impressive deals from carriers .

Mice, rats and pigs all share a secret superpower: They can all use their intestines to breathe, and scientists discovered this by pumping oxygen up the animals' butts. Why run such experiments, you ask? The research team wanted to find a potential alternative to mechanical ventilation, a medical treatment where a machine pushes air into a patient's lungs through the windpipe. Ventilators deliver oxygen to the lungs and help remove carbon dioxide from the blood, but the machines aren't always available. Early in the COVID-19 pandemic, for example, hospitals faced a severe shortage of ventilators, The New York Times reported . Although doctors can also use a technique called extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO), where blood is pumped out of the body and reoxygenated with a machine, the procedure carries inherent risks, such as bleeding and blood clots; and it's often less readily available than ventilators, according to Mayo Clinic .

With the recent release of the MacBook Pro 14-inch (2021) , you might have some questions regarding just how that stacks up against the MacBook Pro 13-inch (2020) . Whether you already own the latter and you’re getting some serious FOMO, or don’t currently own a MacBook Pro laptop, there are a few key differences that could sway you in favor of either device. Apple is well known for making some of the best laptops on the market, especially for creatives and working professionals. From their design, the attached Apple ecosystem and running macOS, it’s pretty difficult to start using a Windows based device if you’ve already been sucked into using a MacBook or iMac previously. And of course, both of these options have ditched the Intel processors used by their predecessors and are now powered by Apple's very own silicon. We made previous comparisons for the MacBook Pro 16-inch (2019) vs MacBook Pro 16-inch (2021) to see how Apple silicon fares against well-established … [Read more...] about MacBook Pro 14-inch (2021) vs MacBook Pro 13-inch (2020)
Every once in a while, a friend attends therapy for the first time and starts breathlessly reporting all the revelations she’s learned. In many of these circumstances, it’s all I can do to stop myself from yelling that I, or any of her other friends, could just as easily have told her these same “discoveries.” But I shouldn’t throw stones. When I announced that I finally realized I wanted to report on science, my best friend rolled her eyes at this obvious (to her) fact. Almost nobody is self-aware, says psychologist Tasha Eurich in her new book Insight . So many of us are obsessed with “knowing ourselves” and spend hours contemplating who we are and how we appear to others. But few truly know either our own desires and goals (what she calls “internal self-awareness”) or how others see us (or “external self-awareness.”) The Verge spoke to Eurich about myths about self-awareness, how we can fix our delusion, and whether we even want to know the truth. This interview … [Read more...] about A psychologist explains why we’re probably all delusional and how to fix it
Apple's iPhone lineup now includes eight different devices at various sizes and prices, from the supersized iPhone 13 Pro Max to the compact iPhone SE . While there are many hardware differences between models, iPhones generally run on the same software.

All of the iPhones you can buy from Apple right now run iOS 15 , which is packed with improvements to FaceTime, Safari, and many other new features .

On January 3, 2009, the first Bitcoin mining operation went underway, and a 50 BTC reward was sent to address 1A1zP1eP5QGefi2DMPTfTL5SLmv7DivfNa . Although unconfirmed, it most likely went to the mysterious Satoshi Nakamoto, the inventor of Bitcoin. While no official transactions were recorded in the genesis block, the embedded text, “The Times 03/Jan/2009 Chancellor on brink of second bailout for banks” was a nod to the financial crisis of the time, and a major motivator behind the decentralized currency’s inception. Fast forward to May 2021, and those 50 bitcoins would collect you a cool $2.9 million USD. However, due to either a quirk in the system or an intentional implementation in the code, the first 50 BTC can’t be spent. Instead, the first mining operation launched what would become global recognition of Satoshi Nakamoto’s vision of a decentralized currency, and become a financial and technical force to be reckoned with. Today, there are at least 1 million unique … [Read more...] about What is Crypto Mining?
