Apple has made a new commercial featuring MacBooks (and MacBook-like laptops) from popular anime. The clips come from Mr. Osomatsu, New Game!, Keroro Gunsou, Your Name, Weathering With You, and more, according to Polygons resident anime expert Julia Lee.
The video spot shows how pervasive Apple laptops have become in popular culture. I found it particularly interesting that even though many of the laptops featured dont actually have the Apple logo on them, theyre all instantly recognizable as MacBook-esque because of their clean silver lines, black keyboards, and some kind of small logo embossed on the back.
And some of those alternate takes on the Apple logo are pretty fun heres a few I screencapped:
And its not just MacBooks…
Facebook first showed off its 3D photos back in 2018, and shared the technical details behind it a month later. But unless you had one of a handful of phones with dual cameras back then (when they weren’t so common), you couldn’t make your own. Today an update brings 3D photos to those of us still rocking a single camera.
Cortana on Windows 10 is getting some changes, Microsoft announced today, as the company shifts focus for what it wants its personal assistant to be. The new Cortana will emphasize productivity features, like helping to manage your schedule, adding to-do items, or sending emails.
As part of that shift, Microsoft is removing some of the older consumer-facing functionality like the ability to control music, manage a smart home, or support for third-party Cortana skills. In other words, Microsoft is going to stop trying to have Cortana emulate Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant, and focus more on features that fit in with the rest of Microsofts software suite.
Microsoft isnt removing everything…

According to Wikipedia, the first electrical motor was a homopolar motor. “Its operation was demonstrated by Michael Faraday in 1821 at the Royal Institution in London.” I have to admit I’m with Insane Clown Posse on how they work, but you can easily make one at home with a few simple parts, as shown in this video by DaveHax.

In this absolutely fascinating segment on a 1970 episode of The Dick Cavett Show, two members of the Women’s Liberation Movement, Susan Brownmiller and Sally Kempton, argue with Playboy founder Hugh Hefner about the depiction of women in his magazine. After Brownmiller and Kempton present their argument, Hef says, “I’m more in sympathy then perhaps the girls realize,” in one of his many cringeworthy self-owns on the episode.

Its been six months since Xiaomi unveiled the Mi Mix Alpha, with its intriguing surround screen that wraps almost entirely around the phone. Now, tech YouTuber Marques Brownlee (also known as MKBHD) has a more in-depth look at the prototype hardware running prototype software. And while it seems very polished for an unfinished product, a closer look reveals a few areas where its software needs some optimization and where some of its hardware doesnt quite seem as magical as it did at the unveiling. Lets touch on the specs first.
Unsurprisingly, the display is the main highlight here, and its dazzling to behold. Its a 2088 x 2250 resolution display, wrapping all the way around the phone and meeting at a ceramic strip on the phones…

I Am Not Okay With This begins with Sydney Novak, covered in blood, running down the middle of the street at night. There are probably other ways shed rather be spending her time. That would seem to make sense with the seriess narrative: her life is pretty normal up until the part where you find out she has superpowers that allow her to blow things up with her mind.
Netflixs new comedy is a work of low-key dread that recalls a lot of other stories about young women coming of age. It has Carries supernatural angst, Junos oddball quirk, and the smart-twee edge of Scott Pilgrim. Syd is a gross weirdo shes equally fascinated and frustrated by her leg acne, pretty fine with being ostracized by her classmates, and perplexed by the…

Two things that grabbed our attention this week at The Verge was Samsungs Galaxy S20 Ultra and Bob Iger stepping down as Disney CEO. So thats what took up a lot of discussion on The Verges flagship podcast The Vergecast.
Executive editor of The Verge and co-host of The Vergecast Dieter Bohn published his review of the Galaxy S20 Ultra this week, and the podcast expands upon it, focusing mostly on the camera (pun intended, I guess, since this is edited).
In the second half of the show, Verge reporter Julia Alexander returns to discuss the news that altered her week significantly: Bob Iger has stepped down as Disney CEO. Julia explains how this will affect Disneys business and whos in charge now.
Theres a lot more news sprinkled…

Google Stadia had a rough launch, with plenty of missing features and unfulfilled promises. But the latest update to the Stadia app hints that some of those features might be coming soon, including the highly anticipated free tier, YouTube streaming, family game sharing, and more, as spotted by 9to5Google.
The biggest thing is an indication that Google is gearing up to launch its free Stadia Base tier of service soon. 9to5Googles report found strings in the app that allow for registration without a paid Stadia code, along with a free one-month trial for Stadia Pro memberships (which includes several free games, along with other benefits).
Also found in the app is an indication that Google may be limiting the number of people who can…
