The Apple TV 4K hits stores today, but it might be helpful to know that, while the device will finally support 4K content, you’ll only be able to stream said content, not download it locally. MacRumors reports that a support document from Apple regarding the new set-top device clearly states that, while you can download HD content from iTunes, 4K is strictly for streaming. It’s unclear if that will also apply to HDR and Dolby Vision versions. “You can download a local copy of an HD movie, and...

Star Trek: Discovery is the first new Trek show in more than a decade, and fans will be watching this weekend’s premiere closely to see how it manages the weighty expectations that come with any new entry in one of the most storied science fiction franchises of all time. The show is set chronologically in an era of Star Trek following Star Trek: Enterprise, but before the 1960 Star Trek that fans now refer to as The Original Series. Discovery is a rare new piece of Trek media that takes place...

With the breakout success of battle royale shooter PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, it was inevitable that other studios would start creating similar experiences. One of the most aggressive has been Epic Games, which announced a battle royale mode for its survival game Fortnite, which will be free to all players starting September 26th. Epic has even gone so far as to cite PUBG as an inspiration. “We love battle royale games like PUBG and thought Fortnite would make a great foundation for our...

Today’s the day that the new iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are in stores across the world. The iPhone 8 isn’t the exciting new Apple product this fall — that honor is reserved for the forthcoming iPhone X — but it is the new, mainstream iPhone that millions of people will be buying this year and next. You already know what the iPhone 8 looks like — it’s just like the last three generations of iPhones, but with a glass back. That glass back enables one new feature, wireless charging, and it makes...

It's still allowed to operate while any appeals process goes through, but its fate is uncertain.

Hurricane hunter Ian Sears often jokes that the most dangerous part of his day is not flying through the eye of a hurricane, it’s driving to the runway and climbing a steep ladder to get on board the plane. Sears is a meteorologist with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). He flies on sturdy planes through some of the planet’s strongest storms to gather precious data that will help forecasters determine where a hurricane is heading and how powerful it’ll be when it gets...

Netflix’s original series Neo Yokio has some strong names in its roster. The series creator is Ezra Koenig, lead singer of Vampire Weekend, which makes good music. So does Jaden Smith, who stars in the series. So does Dev Hynes — aka Blood Orange, my favorite indie artist on Spotify — who composed original music for one episode. Some of the best anime storyboard artists are on this project as well: Kazuhiro Furuhashi, who worked on classic hits like Rurouni Kenshin and the more recent Hunter x...

Ikea introduced furniture that can charge your phone through the Qi wireless charging standard back in 2015. Now, that Apple is adopting Qi in its latest iPhone 8 and iPhone X models, Ikea is piggybacking on the anticipated surge in popularity with some witty ads that play off a few of Apple’s most well-known phrases. Essentially, Apple’s “This changes everything” mantra has become the “This charges everything” ad campaign, while “Think different” is now “Link different.” Ikea’s wireless...

It’s hard to tell just how well PlayStation VR is doing in Japan, but demand is still outstripping supply — the headset remains extremely difficult to buy in Sony’s home country almost a year after going on sale. Sony isn’t exactly discouraging people to try their luck with the infrequent in-store lotteries, either, announcing a price cut and some new VR releases ahead of Tokyo Game Show this week. I spent some time at the VR section of Sony’s booth this afternoon; here’s what I played and...

The new S60 is a manly phone, says its Chinese phone maker Doogee. It’s absolutely the manliest manly man phone ever created. I’m impressed because it’s a rugged hunk of metal that’s clearly made for doing manly things like having adventures and going outside and “working in the fields.” The body is strong and made of metal, and can “take care of itself” as you’d expect any self-respecting man to be (except for the metal part, unless you’re into that). There’s a suite of apps collected into...

London’s transport authority, Transport for London (TfL), says it will not renew Uber’s license to operate in London when it expires at the end of the month. TfL claims Uber’s “approach and conduct demonstrate a lack of corporate responsibility in relation to a number of issues which have potential public safety and security implications.” Uber originally arrived in London five years ago, but rivals like Lyft, Via, and Juno do not operate in the city yet. TfL cites Uber’s approach to serious...
