Shazam! Fury of the Gods’ first trailer introduces a delightful villain

Shazam! brought a lighthearted tone to DC’s theatrical run when it debuted in 2019, and the sequel looks to do much the same later this year — at least if the debut trailer is anything to go by. It’s called Shazam! Fury of the Gods, and at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, DC revealed a […]

Monkeypox is now a global emergency, World Health Organization says

Monkeypox is now a global public health emergency, the head of the World Health Organization decided on Saturday. The viral disease is officially a Public Health Emergency of International Concern, putting it in the same league as polio and COVID-19. In May, clusters of monkeypox cases were detected in the UK and Europe. Since then, […]

Quick question: would you buy a monitor from a company called Dough?

Dough is fantastic. You can make bread with it! Not to mention biscuits, cookies, pies, pizzas, pasta, and pastry. But — to the best of our knowledge — you cannot make a PC monitor with the stuff. Perhaps that’s why I can’t stop giggling at this message (via Liliputing): Eve is the company that makes […]

Walk The Distance makes exercise fun for those who’d rather be hiking

Walk The Distance is the type of app that’ll motivate a very specific type of person to get off the couch and get some exercise.

John Wick 4’s first trailer questions when it all ends

After a trilogy’s worth of exhausting fights, John Wick is returning — but it’s not clear how much more fight he has left in him. The first trailer for John Wick 4, which was a surprise reveal during San Diego Comic-Con this weekend, features all the highlights you’d expect from a Wick movie, including Keanu […]

Streaming video apps all look the same now

Earlier this week, Amazon announced a major redesign of Prime Video, and the overwhelming response was “finally.” Prime Video had become a relic frozen in time, with an ugly, laggy interface that seemed stuck in 2010. Amazon’s streaming competitors, meanwhile, have routinely switched up and refined the user experience. And it seems like Prime Video’s […]

The Pixel 6A comes with a better Magic Eraser

Google’s clever Magic Eraser tool debuted on the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro. It’s an editing feature that’s designed to remove people or objects you don’t want in the background of your photos. Considering that it’s dead simple to use, the results are okay, but it’s definitely not putting Adobe out of business anytime soon. […]

Preorder Google’s Pixel 6A and get a free set of Pixel Buds A-Series earbuds

Welcome to the weekend. This week was a deal drought relative to last week’s Prime Day-filled coverage, but there are still some cool, limited-time offers that are worth highlighting. For one, Google flipped on preorders for the Pixel 6A phone and the Pixel Buds Pro after a long wait since their announcement at Google I/O […]
