• Microsoft Edge Has A New Mini Game You Can Play When You’re Offline

    Did you know that one of the Easter Eggs for Google’s Chrome browser is an endless runner game that can be activated when the browser detects that you’re offline? It turns out that Microsoft loves that idea and has since announced that its Edge browser, now built using Chromium, will be gaining a similar feature as well.

    Similar to how Chrome implements their game, Microsoft’s Edge surfing game can be activated when you’re offline, or if you’re online but you’re bored, you can actually launch it by typing edge://surf into the address bar of the browser. According to Microsoft, the game was in testing with Insiders since February, but the company has released it to the public in the latest update to the browser.

    Based on the description of the game, “Inspired by the classic Windows game SkiFree, the surf game challenges players to ride through the water while avoiding

  • Trump’s New Space Force Missile Might Be Too ‘Super-Duper’

    Last week the White House unveiled the flag for the new branch of the US military, the Space Force. But wait! There’s more: The president also said the US is developing a new “super-duper missile” that will be 17 times faster than the ones we have today.

    I don’t know everything there is to know about rockets and missiles, but I do know basic physics. And I’ll be honest, this seems crazy. For comparison, among current missiles, the UGM-133 Trident II might be the speediest. It’s a submarine-based missile that hits about 8.06 kilometers per second (18,000 mph for you imperial unit people). Yes, that’s already insanely fast.

    So what if you raise that by a factor of 17? That means a super-duper missile would have a velocity of 137 kilometers per second. That’s about 400 times the speed of sound—Mach 400. It could travel across the country, coast to

  • Apple’s iPhone 11 Has Surpassed The iPhone XR As The World’s Most Popular Smartphone

    It looks like Apple could have a winning formula on their hands because according to data released by Omdia, it has been suggested that the iPhone 11, released last year, is now the “world’s most popular” smartphone, surpassing that of the iPhone XR which was released in 2018.

    This is based on global smartphone shipments in which the iPhone 11 managed to ship 19.5 million units in Q1 2020. This is versus the iPhone XR which managed to ship 13.6 million units in Q1 2019. It also shows what a massive lead the iPhone 11 has over its competition, like the Samsung Galaxy A51 which comes in second place, although it is very far behind at only 6.8 million units.

    Like we said, this seems to suggest that Apple has a pretty good formula on their hands. What do we mean by this? For those unfamiliar, the iPhone XR and

  • Fujifilm releases app to turn mirrorless cameras into webcams

    Fujifilm has released new software that lets you use certain X-series and GFX-series mirrorless cameras as ultra-high-quality webcams. The app is called Fujifilm X Webcam and works over USB, letting you benefit from much sharper lenses and larger image sensors than the potato camera in your laptop. You’re even able to use Fujifilm’s renowned film simulation modes.

    The COVID-19 pandemic has driven unprecedented demand for webcams due to the shift to remote work, with extreme stock shortages and jacked-up prices. Canon has already released a similar webcam utility for many of its digital cameras, and it’s possible to make other companies’ cameras work as webcams with a little extra hardware.

    We published a guide to doing this earlier in the month. Here’s how Dan Seifert’s laptop webcam compares to his Fujifilm mirrorless camera:

    On the left is an image from Dan’s laptop’s built-in 720p webcam. On the right is a

  • Learn Your MSc At Techincal University Of Denmark

    Biotech companies are people who make use of biotechnology for producing items and services. Possibly it’s time for us to ask why we expect the issues and do the issues we do. Why are we so prepared to dismiss the ideas and methods of others? Why are we so illiberal? We really do need to learn to equitably share this tiny planet with its paper-skinny layer of life-giving ambiance. I read that the handful of multi-billionaires who dominate the digital landscape are actually planning to build a settlement and colonize Mars so that they have a place to go when Earth becomes uninhabitable. If they’re going to Mars, I will keep right here and take my chances. Google that!” internet Titans.

    Just lately, I used to be concerned in a dialogue on Google+ in regards to the new Motorola X telephone. A number of the folks on these posts slammed …
