The verge - Sun, 01/20/2019 - 21:14

Tomorrow, Facebook will launch a petitions feature called Community Actions, reports TechCrunch, which will allow users to notify their local officials of actions that they’d like to see happen.

TechCrunch says that the feature will roll out to users tomorrow across the United States, who will be able to create a petition, tag relevant public officials or organizations, and get their friends to support their cause. Supporters for any given petition will be able to discuss the topic with fellow supporters on the page, and will also be able to create events and fundraisers.

The site characterizes the feature as one aimed squarely at organizing around public officials, citing examples that range from a “Moratorium on New Drilling” page in...

The smoke monster from ‘Lost’ talks to us about playing a cop on Amazon’s longest-running drama

BGR - Sun, 01/20/2019 - 20:21

Titus Welliver has always flocked to tough guy acting roles like a moth to the flame, turning in unquestionably memorable performances that transfixed viewers in shows like Lost, via his portrayal of the mysterious smoke monster that terrorized the island.

It's not that he necessarily seeks out one kind of specific role. Talk to enough actors, and that’s what they all tell you. That they’re looking for a certain kind of story, a certain appeal, they’ll know it when they see it. Yes, a certain kind of thing does seem to come naturally to Titus, a taciturn actor whose resting face tends to be of the stern, contemplative variety and whose baleful eyes easily convey menace and a rebel streak that he’s brought to Lost, as well as to series like The Good Wife and Sons of Anarchy.

What Never Was is a somber Myst-like adventure that leaves you wanting more

The verge - Sun, 01/20/2019 - 17:00

It can be difficult to find time to finish a video game, especially if you only have a few hours a week to play. In our biweekly column Short Play, we suggest video games that can be started and finished in a weekend.

Shortly after the death of her grandfather, Sarah Wright is tasked with cleaning out the attic of his home in rural England.

This is the setup for What Never Was, a first-person adventure that feels like a cross between Gone Home and Myst. It’s smaller in scale compared to Gone Home — in What Never Was you only have access to...

The verge - Sun, 01/20/2019 - 16:53

The series is based on the 2001 fantasy novel by Neil Gaiman, which follows a former convict, Shadow Moon (played by Ricky Whittle in the show), after he’s hired by a mysterious individual named Mr. Wednesday (played by Ian McShane).

We spoke to a Waymo One customer about how robot taxis get confused by rainstorms

The verge - Sun, 01/20/2019 - 16:00

Last month, Waymo launched its first self-driving taxi service — Waymo One — in Phoenix, Arizona, but you would hardly know it by scrolling through your feed. No Facebook posts, no live-streaming videos, no tweets. We don’t know how many people are using the Google offshoot’s self-driving minivans (Waymo won’t say), but the ones that are have been surprisingly mute on social media.

One exception is Shawn Metz, a 30-year-old HR manager who lives in Chandler, Arizona. Since he was invited to use Waymo One in December, Metz has posted at least a dozen videos on Instagram and YouTube, documenting his experience using Waymo’s self-driving minivans.

He’s become the hero of autonomous vehicle enthusiasts on Reddit

Everything new coming to Netflix this week, and everything leaving (week of Jan. 20)

BGR - Sun, 01/20/2019 - 15:41

We don't get many slow weeks when it comes to Netflix releases, but this week certainly counts. With just ten shows and movies on the docket (nine of which are Netflix originals), there's a decent chance that nothing here will really stand out for you. Personally, I will be delving into the final six episodes of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt as soon as they go live, since it's one of the two or three best sitcoms on the service.

If you're a fan of serial killers (well, not a fan, but you know what I mean), Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes should be on your radar as well. And all I now about Polar is that it features Mad Mikkelsen with an eye patch, so I'll probably check it out. And hey, at least nothing is leaving the streaming service this week!

India wants social media platforms to remove content it deems ‘unlawful’

The verge - Sun, 01/20/2019 - 15:00

The Indian government has proposed new rules aiming to stop the spread of fake news and misinformation in the country on social media — and local civil liberties groups aren’t happy. Late last month, the Internet Freedom Foundation penned a statement saying that these new rules would act as a “sledgehammer to online free speech.”

The proposed rules would amend Section 79 of India’s IT Act, the primary law in the country concerning online commerce and cybercrime. The IT Act works in a similar manner as the US’s Communications Decency Act, and the specific section that would be amended reads a lot like Section 230. If the amendments are approved, platforms like Facebook and Twitter would be required to censor content that the Indian...

Apple is once again selling its iPhone SE — for now

The verge - Sat, 01/19/2019 - 22:32

Last September, Apple officially stopped selling its iPhone X, iPhone SE, and iPhone 6s models, following the release of the iPhone XS and XR. This weekend, MacRumors noticed that Apple has quietly begun to sell the iPhone SE once again in its clearance section.

The 2016-era phone is available in 32GB and 128GB sizes, with $100 and $150 knocked off the price, respectively. The phones are available in space gray, rose gold, gold, and silver colors.

It doesn’t appear that Apple has made the iPhone X or iPhone 6s for sale once again, but if you’ve been missing a decent phone with a headphone jack, this might be the time to pick one up.

Leaked image shows off three variants for the Samsung Galaxy S10 lineup

The verge - Sat, 01/19/2019 - 22:12

Samsung will hold its next Unpacked event next month, where it’s expected to show off a “fully functional” version of its foldable phone, along with the next iteration of its Galaxy lineup, Galaxy S10. A new leaked image from Evan Blass shows off three versions of the phone, the S10E, the S10, and the S10+.

There have been rumors floating around since last fall that the S10 would come in three variants: the S10 and S10+ with a curved OLED screen, hole-punch selfie camera, and in-display fingerprint scanners, with a third (presumably the S10E), serving as a cheaper edition without all the bells and whistles. The company is also rumored to have been in discussions with Verizon to bring a 5G version of the phone to the US. A leak from...
