‘Servant’ Season 3 Ordered By Apple TV+ Ahead of Season 2

Servant season 2 hasn’t dropped yet, but Apple TV+ has already gone ahead and ordered season 3. The creepy M. Night Shyamalan-produced series created by Tony Basgallop and follows a mysterious couple who hire a mysterious nanny – everything is very mysterious in this show.

Plastic Pipes Are Polluting Drinking Water Systems After Wildfires

An anonymous reader quotes a report from The Conversation: When wildfires swept through the hills near Santa Cruz, California, in 2020, they released toxic chemicals into the water supplies of at least two communities. One sample found benzene, a carcinogen, at 40 times the state's drinking water standard. Our testing has now confirmed a source of these chemicals, and it's clear that wildfires aren't the only blazes that put drinking water systems at risk. In a new study, we heated plastic water...

When will virtual reality take off? The $100 bet.

About four years ago, Professor Daniel Lemire and I made a $100 bet on how quickly virtual reality would reach a broad, mainstream market. Specifically, my side of the bet was, "Virtual reality hardware (not counting cardboard) will not sell more than 10M units/year worldwide before March 2019." He bet that it would. In early 2020, we decided to wait settle the bet because it looked like there was some chance VR would reach 10M units/year in 2020. Because of COVID and people looking for entertai...
