We heard early this year that Motorola would be as a pricy smartphone with a vertically folding screen, and in February it was working on a foldable for this year. Now, that the company has sent out invites for a November 13th event that prominently displays the unmistakable silhouette of a classic RAZR as part of an animated teaser image. While it’s hard to tell for sure, it sure looks like we’re seeing the RAZR’s signature hinge pulled away from the edge of the handset to reveal a different sort of hinge underneath — perhaps to better house a true foldable screen like . Motorola appears to have multiple taglines for the event, but they...

Because Yahoo didn’t give the internet much warning, a lot of weird externalities of the company’s decision are being worked out in public.

Berkeley Seismological Laboratory. Seconds before an earthquake hits anywhere in California, people nearby will now get a warning on their smartphones to duck and cover. The first state-wide early warning system in the nation launched today, on the 30th anniversary of the devastating Loma Prieta earthquake that killed 63 people in the San Francisco Bay Area. The early warning system will reach people in two ways: through an app called MyShake and through the existing wireless emergency alerts that sound an alarm on cellphones for flood warnings and missing children (Amber Alerts). If all goes well, it will give people up to “tens of seconds” of advance notice before they might feel the ground shaking.

is just days away from its October 25th release date, and how it’ll be running the in-game economy for the upcoming shooter. Specifically, Modern Warfare will be the first Call of Duty game to use a battle pass system, instead of the much maligned random loot boxes, to dispense content and cosmetics to players. Popularized by Fortnite , the battle pass system allows for players to buy the pass at the beginning of the season, and unlock a variety of items as they progress. Modern Warfare ’s system sounds like it’ll be extremely similar to the Fortnite model (which has since been adopted by other major titles, like Destiny 2 and PUBG ).

Lessard said rLoop might try to revive some of the deals that Arrivo had been working on, like a test track outside of Denver, Colorado, and that it may hire back some of Arrivo’s former employees. But, Lessard said, rLoop is still only in the “final stages” of assessing the progress Arrivo’s employees had made toward developing a type of hyperloop that relies on magnetic levitation (as opposed to the vacuum-based solution that was originally...

In a speech at Georgetown University on Thursday, Mark Zuckerberg laid out Facebook’s approach to moderation in terms of an ongoing commitment to free expression — and in one particular section, drew a sharp contrast with Chinese companies that may not share those values. As Zuckerberg described it, regulators and technologists face the question of "which nation’s values are going to determine what speech is going to be allowed for decades to come," China or the US.

Mark Zuckerberg defended Facebook’s policy of letting politicians lie in political ads — along with free speech more broadly — . “I don’t think it’s right for a private company to censor politicians” he said. Zuckerberg’s speech, which amounted to a rallying cry for the First Amendment during a time when speech rights are under siege globally, acknowledged the fact that Facebook profits off misinformation — but said that’s not why the company decided to allow inaccurate ads to remain on the platform:. Given the sensitivity around political ads, I’ve considered whether we should stop allowing them altogether. From a business perspective, the controversy certainly isn’t worth the small part of our...

Photo by Vjeran Pavic / The Verge. Google came up with its own face unlock system using those advanced sensors in the phone’s top bezel. The technology behind it is similar to Apple’s Face ID, and aside from just letting you into your phone, Google believes face unlock is secure enough to serve as an authentication method across Android. (There’s no more fingerprint sensor on the Pixel 4, remember.) And it’s very fast. But has noticed an alarming privacy concern with Google’s face unlock: it works even if your eyes are fully closed.

Putting aside the monstrous thirst for flesh, a zombie is essentially halfway between a living human and a rotting corpse, animated but staggering around without much grace, a desiccation disguised as a person. Zombieland: Double Tap occupies a similar space in the world of sequels. As a decade-later follow-up to 2009’s irreverent horror-comedy Zombieland , it isn’t an entry in an active franchise. It’s more like an 1980s-style cheapie retread, disguised as a more respectable legacy sequel. Given the endless (and mostly basic) references to both pop culture and the original Zombieland , it wouldn’t be out of character for Zombieland: Double Tap to lay out this sequel-as-zombie parallel itself.
