Aesthetic wallpapers in high resolutions, perfect for your Galaxy S8, Pixel XL, iPhone 7, LG G6, LG V20, HTC U11 and others

Hey kids, have you ever dreamed of browsing the web on your Nintendo 64 while waiting for the cassette deck to finish recording your friend’s hot new mixtape (that features 45 minutes of a 56k modem having a seizure with Windows 95 sounds playing in the background)? No? Well then… Have you ever dreamed of cruising around Miami in your DeLorean, slowed-down 80’s elevator music blaring in the background, as you speed along a seemingly endless row of palm tree silhouettes smeared against neon-lit skies?

If the answer to at least zero of these questions is “YES”, …

If you're not excited after this 'Pitch Perfect 3' trailer then you're clearly dead inside

The Bellas are back and they’re finally college graduates. Which is to say: they’re buried in debt, desperate for work, and rapidly learning that music isn’t a sustainable career for most people.

Fortunately for them, this is the movies. Can’t get a job? NBD! Ditch everything, get the band back together, and give the troops a boost on a USO tour.

That’s the premise for Pitch Perfect 3, which is dubbed in this new trailer as the Bellas’ “farewell tour.” As if it’s up to anything other than the movie’s box office performance to make a decision like that.

Pitch Perfect 3 arrives in theaters on Dec. 22. Read more…

Monument Valley 2 review: a perfect visual experience, less so a game

The original Monument Valley game launched in the middle of 2014, nearly three years ago, and since then it has been a benchmark for excellence in graphics and atmospheric story-telling. In our review, we called Monument Valley “impossibly beautiful”. Yet as popular as it was, it was by no means perfect: the original game was way too short, ending in just an hour and a half or less, and it never felt like a ‘game’ per se, lacking nearly completely the competitive aspect of gaming, but instead feeling more like a walk in a beautiful virtual garden.

An ode to strawberry rhubarb pie, the perfect summer dessert

TwitterFacebook

It is rhubarb season. It is strawberry season. And thus, it is the season for strawberry rhubarb pie, a flawless summer dessert.

A good strawberry rhubarb pie (henceforth referred to as “SRP”) is everything a dessert should be all at once. It is both tart and sweet, both soft and crumbly, both complex and comforting. It fits in just as well — and tastes just as delightful — on a glittering NYC rooftop as it does in the dust of a midwestern state fair.

It is so good.

And, just like you can’t take the Midwest out of the girl, you cannot coax a single bite of SRP from me once I have it on my plate. Get your own slice, you freeloader. Read more…

30+ beautiful high-res wallpapers, perfect for your Galaxy S8/S8+, Pixel XL, LG G6, HTC 10, and others

High-resolution, and high-quality wallpapers are not the easiest thing to find, especially if you have as many as 1440 x 2560 pixels to fill with information – as would be the case if your smartphone has a QHD display.

The reasons for that are several. Perhaps most importantly, however, it’s just exceedingly easy for wallpaper repositories to simply upscale lower resolution content to make it appear as if it would fit perfectly on your fancy screen, but the reality is that stretching the image takes a ton from the quality. And that’s not what you want if you’re looking to …

Google wants to help people find their perfect job, and companies to find the best talent

Closing out the Google I/O keynote, CEO Sundar Pichai talked about a new project that Google is working on, which should help employers find the right talent, and people to find the right job for them. According to stats that Mr. Pichai quoted, 46% of US employers are struggling with filling up vacant job spots, and Google decided to use the thing it does best — search and machine learning — in order to lend a helping hand to the job market.

The initiative is called “Google for Jobs”. The new feature will be available inside the Google app — you just need to type out …

New Samsung commercials present the Galaxy S8 as a perfect travel guide, excellent VR gaming device

It’s been two weeks since Samsung released the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+, so the novelty surrounding the two phones has worn off a bit. But Samsung’s marketing machine marches on, and, with two brand new commercials released on YouTube, it’s making sure that potential customers know what the S8 series has to offer.

The first new commercial presents the Samsung Galaxy S8 as a perfect travel guide – after all, the smartphone can provide information on pretty much anything you need when travelling (as long as you’re connected to the internet, that is), and it also has a great photo camera. …
