Over the last few years, game developer Capcom has experienced something of a renaissance after largely struggling during the industrys push into HD. 2017 saw the release of Resident Evil 7, which shifted the long-running series to a first-person perspective, imbuing it with a new sense of horror. One year later Monster Hunter World debuted with a seamless, open-world structure that turned a once niche Japanese action series into a global phenomenon.
While all of this was happening, Hideaki Itsuno was secretly working on the first new Devil May Cry game in a decade. As he watched his peers continued success, the director says that he was largely unaffected by the resurgence of other iconic Capcom franchises. But he admits that it…
With its latest update, Gmails iOS app finally lets you customize what happens when you swipe your emails. Five different actions are supported, including archiving or deleting emails, marking them as read or unread, snoozing, archiving, or moving them to a different folder. You can also assign different actions to left or right swipes.
The update brings the functionality of Gmails iOS app into line with its Android equivalent. Until recently, the iOS app only let you archive or delete emails by swiping, and swiping in either direction would do the same thing. The update comes as part of a broader redesign announced by Google back in January.
The functionality is available in the latest version of the Gmail app, which began its rollout…
Telerik UI for Blazor is a brand new library of UI components for the Razor Components and Blazor frameworks. Even though Telerik UI for Blazor is in an "Early Preview" stage it ships with one of the most popular and versatile UI components, the data grid. The data grid features out-of-the-box functionality like paging, sorting, templates, and themes. In this article, we will focus on how to get started with the grid’s basic features.
Since the ASP.NET Preview is are moving at a rapid pace, it’s best to update your bits. Make sure you’re on the current version of Razor Components (server-side) and Blazor (client-side) since we’ll be working with both. Detailed installation instructions for both frameworks can be found on the Blazor getting started page.
A while ago, [Skippy] bought a cheap knock-off of the Apple USB mains charger from an AliExpress seller, for the British low, low price of 89p. Normally we’d give you a dollar conversion, but since that’s coincidentally the price of the basic McDonalds hambuger in the UK we’ll go with …read more
I used to use Redux for application state management, but due to complex code patterns and a lot of boilerplate code, it was not friendly to me at all. Recently, I’ve started exploring MobX. MobX is a clean and handy framework for state management. All my recent development efforts have been with MobX.
Getting my first project set up with the latest versions of MobX 5, I found some difficulties in packaging and wiring everything together with MobX decorators or annotations. Finally, I was able to resolve the issues and thought of sharing my experience in a blog post.
Its latest flagship the Galaxy S10 might be getting the most attention these days, but Samsung is still trying to generate some sales of last years Galaxy Note 9 ahead of its own refresh this coming summer. This evening, the company is holding a brief 6-hour sale during which you can save $300 on the unlocked Note 9 in either the 128GB storage / 6GB RAM or 512GB / 8GB configurations.
This might be the Note 9s lowest price ever; it ticked down to just over $700 a few weeks ago, but has since risen back up to $899 or its standard $999 at most retailers.
For most people, a flashlight is just something you keep in a drawer in the kitchen in case the power goes out. There’s even a good chance your “flashlight” is just an application on your phone at this point. But as we’ve seen many times before from mechanical keyboards to …read more

Amazons decision to greenlight a 2016 pilot for a new live-action adaptation of Ben Edlunds superhero spoof comic The Tick is only getting smarter with time. 2019 is expected to see the release of six major superhero films, and caped crusaders can now be found on nearly every major network and streaming service. The original animated version of The Tick was a cult hit in the 1990s on Fox and then Comedy Central, and a subsequent live-action series in 2001 mined some of the same anarchic humor. But back then, the gags were mostly for younger viewers who read comics or watched cartoons full of superheroes. In 2019, the tropes The Tick is mocking have become so mainstream and ubiquitous…
Nearly a decade after the original Borderlands, Gearbox Software has announced a third main installment in the series alongside a trailer that features a few familiar characters. Theres very little hard detail about its plot, features, or release date, but this marks the first new, numbered game since 2012, and well supposedly learn more about it on April 3rd.
The Borderlands 3 trailer seems to promise the same thing as Borderlands, Borderlands 2,and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. It looks like a colorful shooter for up to four players, with a distinctive cartoonish style and endless (over one billion, up from the original games literally world record-holding 17.75 million) varieties of procedurally generated firearms.
The original Handle was designed largely as an experiment that applied Boston Dynamics robot know-how (typically used for bipedal or quadrupedal bots) to one with wheels. The new version looks far more polished, though, applying the original into an actually useful machine that can automatically load and unload pallets of products in a warehouse, as demonstrated in the video. Its easy to see the applications of Handle in automating warehouse work (like say,…

Today, Twitter announced expanded ‘dark mode’ options for iOS users. Previously, Twitter offered a blue/gray dark mode theme, but they’ve added a true black/white Lights Out mode, and an automated dark mode.
Giving more people options to personalize their experience on Twitter based on what makes them most comfortable is what the latest update to Dark Mode is all about, Bryan Haggerty, Senior Design Manager at Twitter, said in the company’s announcement.
Dim: Dim is the current Dark Mode theme that we introduced in 2016 a blue/grey color that still gives people a more comfortable way to enjoy Twitter for any environment youre in and helps reduce eye strain in low lit environments.
Lights Out: Our new theme for Dark Mode, which is a pure black color palette that emits no light since the pixels are turned off. This is a great option for those who want an even darker theme for low lit environments that reduces eye strain, and can potentially help with saving battery.
Automatic Dark Mode: Now, Twitter for iOS devices can enable automatic dark mode to switch from light to the dark mode theme of their choice according to their timezone. This feature takes the burden off of people to make the adjustments. If youre using Twitter all day long, its better on the eyes to have a tool that adjusts for the varying environments, contexts, and atmospheres youll experience throughout the day.
You should be able to launch the new modes with a close/reopen of the app, if updates are enabled. Read the rest

Twitter, showing that it does occasionally listen to user requests, has delivered on CEO Jack Dorseys promise of a true, battery-saving dark mode. The company has just tweeted the announcement that its dark mode with a proper black background, which its dubbing lights out, is rolling out today, presumably to both its Android and iOS apps.
With every modern flagship phone, iPhones included, now having an OLED screen, the use of a black background in the most popularly used apps can really be a help with extending battery life. The OLED panel only lights up the pixels that arent black, so a lot of energy can be saved if youre just perusing the endless scroll of pained screams into the digital ether in the true dark.
