NASA’s new launch pad can shoot out 1,000,000 gallons of water a minute

BGR - Wed, 09/18/2019 - 05:07

Whenever there's a high-profile NASA mission on the horizon you can expect to hear about the various tests leading up to an eventual launch. Firing huge rocket engines is cool, and testing new instruments on a rover is pretty exciting, too, but spewing a bunch of water across a launch pad? Well, It's a little less glamorous, but still needs to be done.

The mobile launch pad for the upcoming Artemis I mission, called Pad 39B, will be the last piece of solid ground that astronauts will stand on before embarking on a mission to the lunar surface. As such, NASA has to ensure that all of its systems are in perfect working order well in advance of the big day, and a recent water flow test shows that things are shaping up nicely.

The verge - Wed, 09/18/2019 - 04:10
Pocket Casts

Pocket Casts, a popular podcast app, is changing up its money-making strategy and launching a subscription service. The company previously charged users between $4 and $10 to download the app, depending on the OS and platform. The app will now be free, but users will have the option to pay $0.99 per month, or $10 per year, for a premium service.

The subscription service, called Pocket Casts Plus, includes access to desktop apps, exclusive app icons and themes, and 10GB of cloud storage for people who want to upload their audio and video content. People who previously purchased the desktop app will be given three years of Pocket Casts Plus for free.

The way Netflix recommends shows and movies might surprise you

BGR - Wed, 09/18/2019 - 04:05

It's practically impossible to keep up with the sheer volume of new titles that hit Netflix every single month. From original programming to a revolving door of popular TV shows and movies, Netflix in September alone will introduce nearly 100 new titles for subscribers. And when you add that to an already sizable library of content, figuring out to watch can sometimes be a bit daunting.

Given the absolute avalanche of content Netflix houses, many subscribers simply rely upon the streaming giant's recommendation algorithm to determine what programs to watch next. And from my personal experience, the algorithm tends to be spot-on more often than it isn't. Interestingly enough, the recommendation algorithm isn't entirely based on what Netflix thinks you might enjoy. Every so often, the algorithm will try and present a program that Netflix wants you to give a shot.

FDA warns of cancer-causing impurity in popular heartburn drug Zantac

BGR - Wed, 09/18/2019 - 03:03

Heartburn, and its even uglier cousin, acid reflux, can leave a person feeling incredibly uncomfortable, which is why drugs meant to treat such conditions are so popular. But, given the choice, most people would likely choose a bit of digestive discomfort over other more serious conditions like, oh I don't know, cancer.

Apparently, that's a choice that some will now have to consider, as the FDA is alerting heartburn sufferers that rely on the medication ranitidine — sold under the brand name Zantac — that the drugs may be tainted with a potentially cancer-causing impurity.

Taiga Motors’ Orca is a $24,000 electric watercraft with a two-hour battery

The verge - Wed, 09/18/2019 - 03:00

Montreal startup Taiga Motors has spent the last few years tackling the tricky task of electrifying snowmobiles, but it’s now turning its attention to making cleaner and quieter personal watercraft. The company unveiled a pricey new Jet Ski-style watercraft called Orca at an event in Toronto Tuesday night that can last for up to two hours on a full charge.

The Orca has a top speed of 65 miles per hour, and has 134kW of power (about 180 horsepower) on offer, which sounds like it will make for a fun ride. The 23kWh battery can be charged on standard or level 2 (240V) outlets, or more quickly with a DC fast charger (from 0 to 80 percent in 20 minutes), provided owners can find one of those near enough to the water (or with enough space to...

Latest Google Pixelbook 2 leak shows the device in action weeks before launch

BGR - Wed, 09/18/2019 - 01:37

Google's Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL may be the stars of the show at its hardware event next month, but they won't be the only devices unveiled at the event. Google will undoubtedly bring a variety of new products to its October event, and one of those products might have leaked a few weeks early. This week, 9to5Google shared two new images which appear to feature the display of the unannounced Pixelbook 2 powered on and running.

As 9to5Google notes, a device codenamed "Atlas" has been appearing in rumors and leaked documents since last year, and those rumors seemed to point to the device being a next-gen Pixelbook. Based on those rumors, the design of the Pixelbook would be receiving a modest, but noticeable, update.

Lawsuit accuses AT&T of shady attempt to pump up DirecTV Now numbers

BGR - Wed, 09/18/2019 - 01:06

AT&T has been accused in a lawsuit of some pretty shady tactics meant to help the company boost the subscriber numbers for its streaming TV initiative formerly known as DirecTV Now.

These tactics include leaning on employees to create fake users for the service and adding multiple “fake” accounts to a real customer’s phone number, all in service of making DirecTV Now seem more successful than it was. That's according to the text of the lawsuit, which can be read here, and accuses the company of tricking investors.

Mars’ North Pole looks so bizarre in new photo by ExoMars orbiter

BGR - Wed, 09/18/2019 - 00:35

The Mars we often seen in photos from rovers and orbiters is dry, dusty, and barren, but there are parts of the planet that, when viewed separately, could trick you into thinking you're looking at a totally foreign alien land. The latest snapshot captured by the ExoMars Trace Gas Orbiter fits perfectly into that latter category.

The image was captured using the CaSSIS camera, one of the orbiter's many instruments, and it shows the frosty dunes that cover the northern region of Mars that is rarely seen up-close. It also definitely looks at least a little bit like cookie-flavored ice cream.

iPhone 11 preorders start strong as consumers flock to the Pro models

BGR - Wed, 09/18/2019 - 00:04

There's no getting around the fact that iPhone sales over the past few years have been somewhat stagnant at best. This, though, shouldn't come as much of a surprise given that iPhone users are holding onto their devices for much longer than in years past on account of improved durability and incremental upgrades.

The iPhone 11, though, might be just the device to compel existing iPhone owners to upgrade. With the early iPhone 11 reviews already out, the general consensus appears to be that Apple's next-gen iPhone is a tremendous upgrade thanks to a best-in-class camera and outstanding battery life. What's more, early reports suggest that iPhone 11 pre-orders are already more impressive than what Apple saw with its 2018 iPhone lineup.

When two big streamers ditched Twitch, Fortnite suffered too

The verge - Wed, 09/18/2019 - 00:03
Illustration by Alex Castro / The Verge

If you visit Twitch right now and click on the Browse tab, you’ll see a constantly updated list of the most popular games on the site. As I’m writing this, there’s a conspicuous absence from the big three: Fortnite. And its absence may be because two key streamers aren’t on Twitch.

According to the metrics site Twitch Tracker, Fortnite dropped from pole position, where it had been holding steady for months, and has lately been hovering somewhere around third or fourth. Right now, in the early afternoon on a Tuesday, the top three games on Twitch are World of Warcraft: Classic, League of Legends, and Just Chatting (a category that generally features people talking to their viewers directly).

So where’s Fortnite? It’s free and available...

Uber is bringing its self-driving cars to Dallas

The verge - Tue, 09/17/2019 - 23:41

Uber will begin testing its self-driving cars in Dallas, Texas in November, the company announced Tuesday. The vehicles will be operated by human drivers in downtown Dallas to start out, collecting mapping data and capturing driving scenarios which Uber’s engineers will then reproduce in simulation.

This doesn’t mean Uber is planning to offer trips in its self-driving cars or even perform self-driving tests in Dallas. “The data we collect will inform our next steps — we may not look to test our self-driving system in Dallas immediately following this first round of data gathering,” Austin Geidt, head of Uber ATG strategy, said in a Medium post. “While we are certainly excited by this possibility, we are also committed to ensuring that...
