Wireless charging is inefficient in many ways. It charges your phone more slowly than using a cable, uses more energy, and requires near-perfect alignment on a charging pad to even work. But inefficiencies aside, it’s just so dang convenient. So when Apple added a ring of magnets to the iPhone 12 and dubbed it “MagSafe,” things got much more interesting. Not only do the magnets guarantee perfect alignment every time but also, with a MagSafe-certified charger, your iPhone can charge at up
Last month, Amazon confirmed that, after a lengthy hiatus, Good Omens was coming back for a second season on Prime Video — and now, we have our very first look. The new season once again stars Michael Sheen and David Tennant as unlikely (and unholy) buddies, and this time around, they have to deal with the sudden disappearance of archangel Gabriel (Jon Hamm). The initial season of the show was based on the novel by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman, while season 2 “explores storylines that
The year is 2025. I’m sitting on the couch next to my husband, who appears in my field of vision whenever we talk to each other. When we aren’t talking, he fades out of view so I can focus my attention on the screens in front of me. I’m editing a presentation for work, FaceTiming with my family across the country, learning Spanish, and watching cooking demos on YouTube at the same time. I get a notification — it’s time for my daily meditation. The screens darken, and the room around m

Meta could be the latest company to test the social potential of AI chatbots. A screenshot shared by leaker Alessandro Paluzzi on Twitter shows what seems to be an intro screen for the new Instagram feature. It says the chatbots will be able to answer questions, give advice, and help users write messages. It also says that users will be able to choose between “30 AI personalities and find which one you like best.” Meta hasn’t announced any formal plans for such a feature, but chatbots w

Eliminating the need to go through extra menus Earlier this year, Google introduced a ‘Memory Saver’ feature that puts inactive Chrome tabs to sleep.
The feature, which essentially works by putting inactive tabs to sleep, helps free up resources to use elsewhere. Said tabs remain visible in your tab list, and reload when you click in them.
Now, with Chrome Canary 116, Google is further improving the visual design of the feature, and letting users know how much memory Chrome is savin
Instagram’s algorithms are actively promoting networks of pedophiles who commission and sell child sexual abuse content on Meta’s popular image sharing app. A joint investigation from The Wall Street Journal and academics at Stanford University and the University of Massachusetts Amherst has revealed the extent to which Instagram’s recommendation systems “connects pedophiles and guides them to content sellers.” Accounts found by the researchers are advertised using blatant and expl
Coca-Cola has come up with a way for you to level up in real life. In a collaboration with Riot Games and in celebration of League of Legends, the two companies have developed a soft drink that they claim is what experience points taste like. (Author’s note: there are many different words people across the world use for soft drinks. As an American, specifically a Midwestern American, I will henceforth use what I know as the word’s one true morphology: pop.) Coke is calling the drink Ultima
It was time to download Google Chrome on a new Windows 11 computer. I typed “Chrome” into the Microsoft Edge search bar. I was greeted with a full-screen Microsoft Bing AI chatbot window, which promptly told me it was searching for... Bing features. Search query: “Chrome.” Search result: “news articles about Bing features.” Screenshot by Sean Hollister / The Verge I picked my jaw up off the floor and tried again. Same result every time. Same exact text,
