    Arstechnica: The Mandalorian was shot on a holodeck-esque set with Unreal Engine, video shows

    Anamorphic lenses are not soft focused. Star Wars is not a movie with shallow focus at all. Basically every single shot in Star Wars has deep focus. Using shallow focus extensively is a more modern technique which allows everybody to be lazy because they don't have to worry about anything other...

    Arstechnica: The Mandalorian was shot on a holodeck-esque set with Unreal Engine, video shows

    Very cool tech. I haven't seen the show, but in the video nearly all of the shots were quite shallow focused, which probably helps them out a lot. That way, the background graphics really don't even have to be very good for it to look believable, since they'll be way out of focus anyway.

    Tesla disables feature after car is purchased, claims feature 'wasn't paid for'.

    Just wait until all cars are like this. It should come as no surprise that governments are pressing high tech electric cars across the globe. Once the car is synced with your government social credit profile the possibilities are endless. Gps tracking, facial recognition of driver and...

    Samsung’s stunning ‘The Space’ PC monitor is near its lowest price ever in this limited-time deal

    Scientists may have discovered fifth force of nature, laboratory announces

    The new particle would be a gauge boson, which is a force carrying particle. New gauge boson = new unknown force (maybe?)

    The Witcher | Official Teaser | Netflix

    This new trailer looks a lot better than the previous one. Are they hiding the black girl that plays Triss to keep the anti-SJW comments to a minimum? I don't think I saw her this time.

    Remember Microsoft PowerToys? Windows 10 Is Getting Them

    I already have the PowerToys Calculator installed on Win10. You can get the old ones running without much difficulty.

    2011 Failures in NASA's Taurus XL rocket: fake metal

    The article says the launch failures cost $700 million but the company settled for $46 million. The IRS will audit the shit out of you over comparably trivial amounts, but this company that is demonstrably and admittedly guilty is let off for 15 cents on the dollar.

    YouTube TV prices will raise to $50

    Ditch cable because it's too expensive. Go to streaming services and find that the a la carte pricing adds up to more than you paid for cable. Also, you still have your internet bill which is cheaper when bundled with cable. And there's still nothing to watch!

    Lazareth Teases a Transforming Hoverbike

    Can't find a better video, but you know what's up. Also, did you notice the pilot was a skinny girl? Probably doesn't make much thrust. Sorry fat Harley guys.

    Captain Marvel Will Lead the MCU, Kevin Feige Says

    Every MCU movie is the exact same paint-by-numbers filmmaking-by-committee stupid cgi fest. Also, they're all at least 20 minutes too long. You can only remake the same movie for so long.

    Controversial Game Pulled by Steam after Outcry

    The censors strike again. I wonder if Valve will quietly reinstate it like they did with Hatred.

    Beyond Good & Evil 2 Will Require a Constant Internet Connection

    In the first one, to get one of the pearls, you had to go online to a website. Of course the website has been gone for many years. So when they shut down the servers after 1-2 years, will the game be unplayable?

    Australia Passes World's First Anti Encryption Law

    Look at that Commonwealth politeness and decency, passing a law and all. Meanwhile, other countries just invade your privacy even when it's illegal to do so.

    Software Patents Stifle Innovation

    I read somewhere that because all computer programs can be expressed as math equations using Lambda calculus, and since you can't patent an equation, you therefore can't patent a program.

    Venom Is a Waste of Tom Hardy's Talent and Your Time According to Reviews

    Robocall Firm Is Facing a $37.5 Million Fine from FCC for Spoofing Consumer Numbers

    They should strip all the assets from the company. Take all the hardware and electronics, search them for any evidence, then send them to e-waste. Can't risk auctioning them off cuz some other fucker would buy them for the same plan. Next, they take the owner(s) and throw them in prison...

    Russia’s Answer to Tesla: The Kalashnikov CV-1

    I think it looks good except for the rear. If they just shortened the back end and copied the rear end of most modern hatchbacks, it would look pretty cool. Less storage space though. The prototype is also missing mirrors... I guess because nobody seems to use them in Russia anyway.

    The Last Remnant Will Be Removed from Storefronts in September 2018

    I would imagine they announce this to get people to buy it in a rush. Then they pull the game. Then they release a crappy remaster.

    Crytek Responds to CIG's Request to Dismiss Star Citizen Case

    Crytek doesn't pay their employees. CIG is a giant scam machine. I hope both companies' legal costs are so large that they both go under and in the end the case is just dismissed anyway.

    Hunt Down the Freeman in 3 Weeks

    I'm a fan of basically all HL2 mods and custom campaigns. There's no gameplay presented in the video so it's too early to judge. Also, there is no price listed on the steam store. It's possible it will be released for free. Did anybody notice the 60gb install?
