In this episode, I talk about a friend that I haven’t seen in awhile and his sudden health issues; how you should grab life and own it, my oldest son and how I’m so proud of him for doing just that and my first upgrade experience with Windows 10 (on my laptop – DON’T UPGRADE YOUR MAIN MACHINE YET!)
Dynamic cruise control is one of those opulent car options that sound a little ridiculous until you actually try it, and then you can’t really imagine using a car without it. It is awesome. The concept is simple: instead of operating at a constant, set speed, your car continuously monitors for traffic ahead of you and adjusts your speed to maintain a minimum set distance, along with a maximum speed. For highway goers, it can mean traveling for hours at a time without ever touching a pedal. (As you might imagine, it’s also an important precursor to autonomous driving.)
Xbox Live is currently unavailable for some users, and Microsoft has confirmed that the service is experiencing issues.
Right now, if you try to connect to the Internet on your Xbox, you’ll probably be greeted with a message saying that Xbox Live is currently unaccessible. Reports have been coming in about sign-in problems affecting the service, meaning that people cannot see their friends lists, send messages, or play online games. I’ve personally been experiencing the Xbox Live log-in problems.
The spat between rappers Drake and Meek Mill is entering its second week, and it’s starting to get ugly. Here’s the shortest possible recap, just in case you haven’t been following every twist and turn: Meek Mill accused Drake of using a ghostwriter for “R.I.C.O.,” a track they recorded together for Meek’s new album Dreams Worth More Than Money. Drake stayed silent until Saturday night, when he released three new tracks during his OVO Sound radio show on Beats 1. One of them was “Charged Up,” a diss track aimed at Meek. Meek called the song “baby lotion soft.” He was supposed to premiere a rebuttal on New York’s Hot 97 Monday night, but the evening came and went without a new track. Drake took the opportunity to go on the offensive and…
Brazilian plant researcher Paolo Gonella probably wasn’t hoping to discover a new plant species when he was scrolling through his Facebook newsfeed, but when he came across a picture posted by Reginaldo Vasconcelos, that’s exactly what happened.
The plant is a previously undiscovered species of Drosera, or sundew, now called Droseramagnifica; it can grow to be up to five feet tall, and is the second largest carnivorous plant in North and South America, with sticky leaves that can trap insects as large as butterflies. According to Smithsonian Magazine, Vasconcelos first photographed the plant in a jungle on a mountaintop in southeastern Brazil, near where he lives, in 2012 and posted it on his Facebook to share with his friends.
If you’re a fan of collecting Fallout stuff, you’ll want to keep an eye on Loot Crate in the coming months. The service, known for its monthly deliveries of game items to subscribers, is partnering with developer Bethesda to create a very limited Fallout 4 Loot Crate.
This crate will be a little different than the normal monthly deliveries, and so Loot Crate is letting people sign up to get notified about when they can order it. According to the company, the Fallout 4 box will be “extremely limited.”
Bethesda and Loot Crate have yet to say anything about what will be in the box, but it’s safe to assume that there will be some cool, exclusive Fallout 4 items included. The crate’s contents will only be revealed once they’re delivered.
There’s no word yet on pricing, but in general, a Loot Crate will cost you around $20. The Fallout 4 crate will be delivered in November.
