Did my office suddenly fill up with onions, or am I still bawling my eyes out? The season finale of The Magicians pulled one of its biggest, and most shocking, surprises to date. You might think (or hope) it’ll lead to another epic quest, such as the one to bring back magic in season three. But according to the showrunners, this decision was intentional, purposeful and permanent.
Unfortunately, Samsung’s version has some weird restrictions that only enables Bright Night in very low light conditions, instead of letting you turn it on whenever you want. It’s really annoying and something I called out in my Galaxy S10 review. But that’s no longer the case.
Scribd has become a popular place for people to upload PDF documents to share with the world. But the hosting site’s algorithms aren’t handling the release of the Mueller Report very well, according to a new report from Quartz. Scribd’s robots are flagging the document as a copyrighted work, despite the fact that, as a government-produced document, it’s in the public domain.
North Korea has developed a brand new weapon according to dictator Kim Jong Un, who made the announcement this week through state-controlled media channel KCNA. But Kim didn’t stop there. Just hours after the news, the country dropped another bombshell, explaining that North Korea wants US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo removed from nuclear negotiations.
Marcus Hutchins, the security researcher best known for helping to stop the widespread WannaCry ransomware attack, has pleaded guilty to charges related to malware unconnected to the 2017 attack.
Six apps have reportedly been removed from the Google Play Store after a Buzzfeed investigation found that they were involved in ad fraud.

Two sources familiar with the US Federal Trade Commission’s investigation into Facebook say that Mark Zuckerberg himself is now a target. According to The Washington Post, the agency wants to hold the company’s co-founder, chief executive and board chairman — Zuck is all of those things — accountable for mishandling Facebook user data.
And since Zuckerberg told Congress last year that he’s responsible for what happens at Facebook, the FTC’s idea to pin him with the blame for the company’s many, many misdeeds actually makes a lot of sense.
On Friday, at just about the same time as the most highly anticipated government document of the decade was released in Washington DC, Facebook updated a month-old blog post to note that actually a security incident impacted “millions” of Instagram users and not “tens of thousands” as they said at first.
As someone who’s obsessed with portable gaming, on paper, the Switch seems like the perfect console for me. But I actually find it a little too big to leave the house with, so I’m optimistic about a report from Japan’s Nikkei newspaper which claims a couple of new Switch consoles are en route, including a smaller, cheaper version, and one with more horsepower.
US Congress has long been clamouring for the Mueller report, and the US Justice Department finally delivered the report yesterday. With a twist. Congress got the 400-page report on some now semi-ancient tech: CDs.
A strange Hellraiser teaser and a new image from Spider-Man: Homecoming. Jon Favreau tries to quell rumblings of the so-called shot-for-shot remake of The Lion King. Avengers: Endgame tie-in marketing won’t stop, and our first look at the series finale of Gotham. Spoilers are rolling right this way...
A man who goes by the name Lucas Lambert reportedly spent months setting up meetings with three cybersecurity experts under false pretenses last year, hoping to get them to say that they were paid to criticise Kaspersky Lab. Lambert was unsuccessful, but the attempt sheds new light on alleged covert activity potentially carried out on behalf of the Moscow-based cybersecurity firm.
Your dog could very well make for a decent fitness coach, according to a new study out Thursday. It found that adults in the UK who owned a dog were fourfold more likely to get the recommended amount of weekly exercise as non-owners. The boost in exercise, however, might not necessarily be as dramatic for dog owners living outside of the UK.
