Engineers at Google have unveiled Dex, a prototype functional language designed for array processing. Array processing is a cornerstone of the math used in machine learning applications and other computationally intensive work.
The chief goal for the Dex language, according to a paper released by Google researchers, is to allow programmers to work efficiently and concisely with arrays using a compact, functional syntax.

Loupedeck has announced a new editing console for creative work called the Loupedeck Creative Tool. Its designed to help bridge the gap between the infinite toolbars and toggles of apps like Photoshop, Lightroom, or Final Cut to the real world through an array of customizable buttons and dials.
Its a similar concept to the companys original Loupedeck and Loupedeck+ consoles, but the Creative Tool takes things a bit further by having a far more customizable user interface. Where the original Loupedecks offered a mix of pre-labeled dials for things like contrast and exposure alongside unlabeled user-customizable dials, the Creative Tool uses miniature screens to assign whatever tools or functions youd like to the buttons and dials…

Toronto’s Andrea Addario lives next to one of the world’s greatest Halloween haunters. As she tweeted, he exhibits “extreme genius” every year, and this year is no exception: he’s studded his tree with giant measles viruses made out of pumpkins and carrots, along with a coffin-shaped sign reading “VACCINATE YOUR KIDS.” (Thanks, Allen!)
In 2004, Howard Hallis celebrated the devilishly wonderful crossover of Disney and Goth culture with the now-classic “Haunted Bela,” a mash-up of Bauhaus’s “Bela Lugosi’s Dead” with the spooky narration heard in Disneyland’s Haunted Mansion dark ride.

Motorola is planning to unveil its foldable RAZR phone next month, but a new leak has given us an early look at the handset. Evan Blass (evleaks) shared an image of the foldable RAZR on his Twitter account today, and it looks a lot like the classic RAZR V3 from 2004. Motorola has already teased a new hinge for this foldable RAZR, and this leaked image shows the displays will flip into the place.
The image doesnt really reveal much more. Theres what appears to be a button or perhaps even a fingerprint reader at the base of the device. It could even be a home button, or used to flip the display out.
Apple TV Plus wants potential subscribers to be excited about streaming. Its launching with four big-budget shows featuring household names. But early reviews tell a different story, one where Apples presence in an oversaturated streaming space doesnt seem necessary. Negative reviews right out of the gate arent improving Apples chances, but that doesnt mean the streaming platforms future is doomed.
At $4.99 a month, Apple TV Plus is one of the cheapest streaming services entering the streaming wars space. Its not a Netflix killer or even a Netflix competitor. This isnt the streaming service youll cancel Hulu for. Apple knows this. Thats why the company is giving anyone who purchases an Apple product, new or refurbished, a…

Intel likes 5.0 GHz processors. The one area where it claims a clear advantage over AMD is in its ability to drive the frequency of its popular 14nm process. Earlier this week, we reviewed the Core i9-9990XE, which is a rare auction only CPU but with 14 cores at 5.0 GHz, built for the high-end desktop and high frequency trading market. Today we are looking at its smaller sibling, the Core i9-9900KS, built in numbers for the consumer market: eight cores at 5.0 GHz. But you’ll have to be quick, as Intel isn’t keeping this one around forever. Read on for the full review.
