No longer will you need a pickup truck to successfully shop at Costco. 

The big-box store just launched CostcoGrocery, which will provide two-day delivery on dry goods. The two-day window makes it kind of like Amazon Prime—except you can probably get a better deal on a year’s supply of toilet paper. Delivery is free for online orders over $75. 

Along with its two-day delivery service, Costco expanded a partnership with Instacart for same-day delivery on all kinds of products carried at the superstore.

'The Walking Dead' will finally cross over with 'Fear,' says Robert Kirkman

TwitterFacebook

Ever since The Walking Dead got its spinoff (aka prequel) series, Fear the Walking Dead, fans and reporters alike have been badgering the producers behind the two shows about the possibility of a crossover — and apparently said badgering has finally paid off.

“There are two Walking Dead shows, I’m not gonna name them… There is one character that is going to go from one show, that I will not name… and appear in the other show, which I will not name,” series creator Robert Kirkman revealed at the show’s New York Comic Con panel. “So what does that mean, because these timelines, how does that work? Are we going to see an interesting backstory of a Walking Dead character showing up in Fear the Walking Dead, or are we going to see a Fear the Walking Dead character show up in The Walking Dead, and see a future version of a character? What’s gonna happen? Is it going to be something completely different than that? Who knows?” Read more…

Finally! Pull down the Note 8 or S8 notification bars from anywhere on the screen

We have been whining about the lack of a pull-down notification bar gesture from anywhere on a Samsung phone screen for a while now, but this fever reached a crescendo mode with the big and tall Galaxy Note 8 or Galaxy S8+. 
For some reason, Samsung decided that it is a good idea to introduce swipe up and down gestures anywhere on the home screen, but these did the same thing – pulling the app drawer – as you can see in the short GIF here. To bring down the notification bar, you had to stretch all the way up to the top of the screen, which, on a large handset …

Finally! Google will kill video and ads sound autoplay in next Chrome update

There’s nothing more annoying on the web than autoplaying vids with sound to your unsuspecting ears and colleagues while you simply browse for a pair of sneakers instead of actually working. Hey, the latest studies show you are more productive because of those breaks! Some sites are worse than others in that respect (looking at you, CNN, blasting videos at full volume with each refresh!), but Google has a solution to this first-world problem.

Starting with the next big Chrome update, likely version 64 that is arriving in January, Google’s experimental …

Sony rumored to finally be ditching its OmniBalance design at MWC 2018

Pretty much any mention of the words “Sony Xperia” online will inevitably get you the same reaction: people unhappy with the manufacturer’s decision to stick with its years-old design principles (even though it’s far from the only company doing it).

But this might soon change, if a new rumor is to be believed: Sony is said to be retiring its OmniBalance for good starting next year. Rejoice!
As you may know, Sony likes releasing its major smartphones in two batches: one early in the year at the Mobile World Congress, and one in …

Jet Black color option finally available for 32GB iPhone 7 and 7 Plus

Apple is finally offering 32GB versions of the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus in the stylish jet black finish. This slight revision is one of the several changes introduced to the Apple Store following last night’s iPhone announcement event.
Previously, the color variant was only available to the 128GB and 256GB versions of the 2016 flagships. Customers had to pay a price premium for the shade due to it being difficult to manufacture. 
Although undeniably attractive, the glossy, reflective finish does have some drawbacks. …

'Outlander' Season 3 premiere finally reveals how Jamie and Black Jack's story ends

TwitterFacebook

Spoiler warning: This recap contains plot details for Outlander Season 3, episode 1, titled “The Battle Joined.”

Try as Jamie Fraser might, he just can’t seem to die. 

He enters the Battle of Culloden devastated by the reality of having to say goodbye to his wife and unborn child, but also assured of their safety, having sent them (and the rest of his Lallybroch men) out of harm’s way before the battle begins. 

That leaves his way clear to die a heroic (if unnecessary) death among his countrymen, knowing the defeat that awaits them thanks to Charles Stuart’s hubris. But even after one final, bloody, surreal showdown with Black Jack Randall, death refuses to come for our noble hero.  Read more…
