Wild video shows the moment an F-16 fighter jet crashed into a California warehouse

BGR - Sat, 05/18/2019 - 20:22

In a wild story that was captured on video, an F-16 fighter jet crashed into a warehouse in Riverside, California shortly after takeoff yesterday afternoon. The pilot managed to safely eject from the plane before the crash and is said to have suffered no injuries, according to a report from the Los Angeles Times.

A full-on investigation into the cause of the crash will certainly yield more details, but early reports suggest that a hydraulics failure was the reason behind the malfunction and subsequent crash.

Valve is making Dota 2 players pay to avoid toxic gamers

The verge - Sat, 05/18/2019 - 20:00

Dota 2 is no longer free to play if you want to have the best experience. In this year’s Dota 2 “Battle Pass” — a premium subscription that usually offers cosmetics and other optional curiosities to the game — Valve bundled one of the most important features it has ever created. Players who buy the Battle Pass can now use an “experimental” Avoid Player feature, which is supposed to keep toxic players away from you. Here’s a different way to say it: Valve is now charging players a minimum of $9.99 to avoid harassers.

I’m glad to see that Valve is finally taking more steps to address its toxic player community and protect Dota 2 players from the worst of the bunch. But it’s telling that the company sees this as an add-on, and not part of...

A Memory Called Empire is a brilliant blend of cyberpunk, space opera, and political thriller

The verge - Sat, 05/18/2019 - 19:00

In Arkady Martine’s debut novel, A Memory Called Empire, Ambassador Mahit Dzmare, an emissary from the distant Lsel Station, is called to the center of the vast Teixcalaanli Empire after her predecessor winds up dead. As she begins to understand the ins and outs of her new role, she also has to figure out how to keep her home station from being absorbed into the Empire, and what happened to her predecessor. Author Martine lays out a fantastic look at how a society’s memory steers cultural and political events, and offers a meditation on the lengths people will go to be free.

The novel is set in the very distant future: humanity has spread throughout the stars, traveling from system to system by way of a stargate-style network. That’s...

9 new trailers you should watch this week

The verge - Sat, 05/18/2019 - 18:00

Welcome to the annual biggest week in trailers, aka TV upfronts week. This is the week when TV networks present glimpses of their new shows to advertisers, trying to woo commitments ahead of the shows’ debuts later this year. Naturally, those trailers also end up online.

I love watching all the upfront trailers because they’re just incredibly awkward and strange most of the time. At this point, the shows have each only filmed a pilot episode, and so a trailer for them is basically a three minute tour through a single 20-or-so minute episode of TV. No surprise, a lot of them are pretty bad, but there are always a few gems.

I’ve included some highlights below, but if you want to watch them all, you can check out trailer roundups for ABC, N...

Game of Thrones fans fixed some of the worst things from season 8, and it’s so much better now

BGR - Sat, 05/18/2019 - 17:44

The final episode in the final Game of Thrones season airs on Sunday night, and at this point, we have no expectations considering the lousy writing that we've witnessed so far — not to mention that we already know where this journey is heading. Fans have voiced their concerns with season 8 ever since the first episode aired, and it all culminated with a petition for HBO to completely redo the final season. That petition means absolutely nothing to HBO when it comes to revising the show, but HBO is surely watching and learning from this mess. And before Isaac Hempstead Wright takes it personally again, I'll make it clear: as a Game of Thrones fan, I do not want a different ending. I do not expect a happy end or anything like that. It's perfectly fine where this season 8 journey has led so far. I just want the writing to be as good as it used to be, instead of the daytime soap opera trash we've seen so far. By the way, Isaac, don't forget that D&D destroyed Bran's character too. Also, the petition targets just the writing, not all the hard work that went into making season 8.

While there's obviously no way HBO will ever redo the show, several Game of Thrones fans out there recreated some of the key scenes from season 8, and it turned out so much better than the real thing.

How to use Google Maps to help someone find you

The verge - Sat, 05/18/2019 - 16:00

Google Maps is great for helping you find your way — or even helping you find your car — but the app can also help other people find you.

Maps has an easily overlooked feature for sharing your real-time whereabouts with someone so they can see exactly where you are, even if you’re moving, and then navigate to your location. You can use the same feature to let a trusted person keep tabs on your travel progress to a particular place and know precisely when you’re set to arrive.

The best part? It’s all incredibly simple to do. The trick is knowing where to look.

Share your real-time location

When you want someone to be able to track your location:

  • Open the Maps app on your iOS or Android device
  • Tap the blue dot, which represents your...
