Netflix announces cast for season 2 of ‘Altered Carbon’

Sci-fi series Altered Carbon is making a comeback on Netflix, and the streaming service just announced who will be joining the cast for the second season. Two cast members coming back include Hamilton’s Renée Elise Goldsberry as revolutionary leader Quellcrist Falconer and Chris Conner as the AI hotel manager Poe. They will be joined by the new Takeshi Kovacs, played by Anthony Mackie, who you might know as Falcon from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Speaking of Marvel, Simone Missick, who plays Misty Knight in the now-cancelled Marvel television universe on Netflix, will be joining the cast as a highly-skilled bounty hunter named Trepp. Daredevil's Dina Shihabi will play Dig 301, an obsolete AI program that focused on archaeology projects. Torben Liebrecht will play Colonel Carrera, a leader of the Protectorate Special Forces. And James Saito will play Tanaseda Hideki, a Yakuza boss who has personal history with Takeshi. Altered Carbon is based on books by Richard K. Morgan and is helmed by Laeta Kalogdris and Alison Schapker. There is no word yet about the second season's release date.

SourceCode: Samsung ushers in new Foldable segment

We can argue about the exorbitant price, the limited availability at launch, and how no one really needs the Samsung Galaxy Fold but that would diminish what Samsung has accomplished in giving the world an entirely new Foldables category.

By Gadjo Cardenas Sevilla

While Samsung’s most recent Unpacked event focused mainly on their rather iterative update to the Galaxy S line with multiple Galaxy S10 handsets raising the bar (and the price) of what Samsung flagship smartphones can offer, this moment clearly belonged to the all-new Samsung Galaxy Fold.

Being the first folding smartphone from a leading manufacturer (and available in April 2019), the Galaxy Fold puts Samsung in the driver’s seat of an entirely new product category, one that, if developed properly, might eclipse smartphones and tablets in terms of future-facing functionality.

Gwyneth Paltrow is ready to retire her Marvel character

Looks like Chris Evans isn't the only one ready to hang his Captain America suit. According to actress Gwyneth Paltrow's interview with Variety, she plans to retire her role as Pepper Potts after Avengers: Endgame. “I mean, I’m a bit old to be in a suit and all that at this point,” Paltrow, 46, told Variety. “I feel very lucky that I did it, because I actually got talked into it. I was friend with [Iron Man director] Jon Favreau. It was such a wonderful experience making the first ‘Iron Man’ and then to watch how important it has become to fans."

She has said she'd be open to doing cameos and the like. “I feel honored to be a part of something that people are so passionate about,” she said. “Of course, if they said, ‘Can you come back for a day?,’ I will always be there if they need me.”

Samsung lets users remap Bixby button on S10 and other Android Pie-powered phones

Dieter Bohn / The Verge

Samsung has finally conceded and is letting users remap the Bixby button to their third-party app of choice. There's now a built-in setting that will let you assign a third-party app to open either with a single or double press. Whatever option you don't choose will be given to Bixby. For example, if one press will open Spotify, then a double press will open Bixby. Now, holding down the button will trigger Bixby Voice, no matter what.

According to The Verge, Samsung will reportedly let owners of the S8, S9, and Note 8 and Note 9 with Android Pie and One UI customize the Bixby button as well.
