Dan Fogler’s Jacob Kowalski echoed a sentiment we shared at the end of the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them trailer: “I want to be a wizard.” And just getting to see more of what the new J.K. Rowling film is all about gets us extra excited. Debuting at Hall H at the San Diego Comic-Con, Fantastic Beasts’s shows us Eddie Redmayne’s Newt Scamander smuggling magical creatures into the U.S. that somehow managed to escape. He wants to recapture them and keep them from “the most vicious creatures on the planet” a.k.a. humans. He enlists the help of Porpetina Goldstein (Katherine Waterston), a witch from the Magical Congress of the United States of America, and Kowalski. Of course, he’s being hunted by an intimidating and villainous-looking auror Percival Graves (Colin Farrell). There’s just a lot of things we’re excited for with Fantastic Beasts and we can’t wait for its release this November.
DC looks like they’re taking themselves a lot less seriously while packing in all that action with the new look at Wonder Woman and the Justice League. For me, Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman was the best thing about Batman v. Superman so seeing her kick ass in her own film is a delight to see. It’s especially amazing, and definitely long overdue, that we get a female superhero lead. We just have to wait until June 2017 finally see if the film is just as amazing as the trailer.
Sony Electronics revealed the Z series, the next generation in television display technology with the ability to reproduce the deeper blacks, brighter lights, and vibrant colours of the real world.
The new flagship Z series sits atop Sony’s current X series line-up of premium 4K HDR Ultra HD TVs, which includes the award winning X930D and X940D.
The new “Z” brand designates a significant leap forward and the ultimate in display technology. With this advance, Sony brings 4K High Dynamic Range (HDR) to a new level with ultra-contrast and even more realistic, accurate colour, in order to express what the content creators truly intended.
If we were to think about one good thing about the Motorola brand before, it was the stock version of Android it ran that received software updates and security patches quickly. But now that it’s under Lenovo, people have been questioning if the tech company will be able to release timely updates, including the monthly security updates Google releases. Some were pointing out it took Lenovo three months to release a security update for the Moto X Pure and this might carry over to the new Moto Z and Moto G4 phones.
A representative from Lenovo told Digital Times in an email that the Moto Z, Moto Z Force, and Moto G Family will support the Android Security Bulletin patches and “they will receive an update shortly after launch with additional patches.” However, they didn’t specify how often or up-to-date the patches will be. Tech companies are notorious for taking their time to release updates. Let’s just hope they buck this trend.
