Apple Sending Replacement AirPods With Unreleased Firmware, Rendering Them Unusable

Customers who require a replacement AirPod from Apple have in some cases been receiving an AirPod running 2D3 firmware, which is not a version of the AirPods firmware that's been publicly released. As described on and Reddit (via iMore), customers who get an AirPod with the 2D3 firmware are unable to pair it with the existing unreplaced AirPod, leaving the ‌AirPods‌ unable to be used together. Apple has apparently been shipping these ‌AirPods‌ running the unusable firmware since March 25 o...

The internet is obsessed with redesigning the new PS5 controller

In an unexpected announcement yesterday, Sony unveiled DualSense, the controller for the upcoming PlayStation 5 — and this thing looks absolutely gorgeous. The controller sports a new elegant aesthetic that blends a black and white color scheme into a clean, minimalist design, with a hint of blue around the center touch pad. As many have pointed out, it looks like the lovechild of the black DualShock and the white Xbox One S controllers. I don’t disagree. No matter how stunning, though, people h...

A top YouTuber slammed Dasani over additive conspiracy theories. Experts say they don't hold water.

Consumers are taking to YouTube and other social media platforms to complain about the taste of the Coca-Cola water bottle brand Dasani. In a new YouTube video, Shane Dawson reviewed claims that the product tastes strange, makes a "fizz" sound upon opening, and that the ingredients list includes salt among other additives — suggesting that something nefarious is afoot with the water. A bottled-water expert told Business Insider that Dasani is using many of the same practices that other bottled...

Animal Crossing: New Horizons player masterfully recreates ‘Hyrule’ from The Legend of Zelda

The new Animal Crossing game, New Horizons, has been out just over two weeks, and players have already created works of art in it. The most impressive, by far, is the player who recreated Hyrule from A Link to the Past on their island. Reddit user VaynMaanen posted screenshots of his island to the Animal Crossing subreddit, where it quickly accrued the acclaim of his fellow players. One and all, they agreed that this was not only a great island, but that it must have taken quite a lot of time an...

Words of the week: More coronacoinages

Too many words are being invented in response to the COVID-19 pandemic for me to pick just one this week. Thus this update of my March 16 post, which covered quarantini, coronials, coronadouche, and other coinages, some of which have already slipped out of usage.   Infit: An outfit worn indoors while self-isolating or quarantining.   Lockdowning. Lockdown has been a noun since the 1830s, when it was first coined in North America to describe “a piece of wood used in the construction...

Some Users Experiencing System Crashes on macOS 10.15.4, Especially During Large File Transfers

A sizeable number of Mac users are experiencing occasional system crashes after updating to macOS Catalina version 10.15.4, released a few weeks ago. The crashing issue appears to be most prominent when users attempt to make large file transfers. In a forum post, SoftRAID described the issue as a bug and said that it is working with Apple engineers on a fix for macOS 10.15.5, or a workaround. SoftRAID said the issue extends to Apple-formatted disks:There is a serious issue with 10.15.4. It ...

As tech layoffs surge, some support emerges for those without a job

The massive surge of COVID-19-related layoffs has put tech in a unique position. While the startup world is facing layoffs itself, it is also trying to help get people back to work. Back at the end of 2019, the SoftBank-backed belt-tightening period led to a flurry of crowdsourced spreadsheets with employee names from companies like Oyo, WeWork, Zume and more. The spreadsheets popped up as a bet on the network effect, with the ultimate goal of hoping the sheets land in the hands of a recruiter l...

Following two interest rate cuts by the U.S. Federal Reserve in March, the Apple Card's base APR has now decreased from 12.49 percent to 10.99 percent for some cardholders, including MacRumors reader Zed and others on Reddit.

Thru-hiking during coronavirus

The coronavirus has upended society across the globe. In the outdoors world, the spotlight has been turned to thru-hikers after a hiker’s death along the Pacific Crest Trail on March 28. The hiker, who suffered unspecified injuries in the San Jacinto Mountains, was pronounced dead by the rescue team upon arrival. The following day, two other hikers were rescued after being stuck on a patch of trail covered in snow and ice. Though these incidents were not directly related to the coronavirus, t...

iPhones and iPads Could Someday Automatically Adjust Screen Orientation Using Face ID

1980's 12-year-old post-punk sensation Chandra sings "Concentration"

Reddit: Chandra Oppenheim’s story is one of the most innocent but interesting stories to come out of post-punk NYC. After glam moved into punk and punk moved into post-punk/new wave/no wave/noise/outsider disco/mutant disco/art punk/etc/etc, it was a musical free for all. So it makes sense that an unassuming 12-year-old from Brooklyn would enter the scene backed by a post-punk, outsider disco group under the name Chandra. Chandra Oppenheim was just twelve years old when her debut album ‘T...

Campus Is Closed, So College Students Are Rebuilding Their Schools In Minecraft

An anonymous reader quotes a report from The Verge: The day before University of Pennsylvania students were told that their college commencement would be held online, junior Andrew Guo thought of an alternative to holding the address over Zoom. Students could have a "Hey Day" and graduation inside Minecraft, just as a Japanese elementary school had organized days earlier. Quickly, "Penncraft" students began to recreate dormitories, food trucks, and local sculptures in-game. Makarios Chung, an ea...

What’s the origin of the ‘well-dressed, articulate, educated gay man’ stereotype?

From Stanford in Sex and the City to George in My Best Friend’s Wedding and even David in Schitt’s Creek, we’re overwhelmed with stereotypical depictions of gay men as witty, well-groomed, and well-spoken (and, unfortunately, disproportionately white). But as one Redditor recently asked, where does that trope even come from? from askgaybros Other Reddit users readily replied with theories. “Gay men from the upper class or bourgeoisie were more likely to be ‘out’ for c...
