'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…

GM leak of iOS 11 reveals 2017 Apple iPhone names: iPhone X, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus

In just three days, many of the questions that we’ve had about the tenth anniversary edition of the Apple iPhone will be answered. One of the biggest questions is, what will Apple name this version of its iconic smartphone? From the very first rumors, most of us in the media have labeled it the Apple iPhone 8. The two iPhone 7 sequels were called the Apple iPhone 7s and Apple iPhone 7s Plus.

But last week, we passed along a couple of new rumors. One had the tenth anniversary model named the Apple iPhone Edition while the sequels were titled the Apple iPhone 8 and Apple iPhone 8 Plus. The …

RED reveals what the Hydrogen's "holographic display" is all about

RED Digital Cinema, possibly the most well-known cinema camera maker, made a weird announcement two months ago: apparently, it had been working on its own take on the smartphone, called the RED Hydrogen, complete with a modular design and a so-called “holographic display.” And even though the closest thing we had to a look at the device at that point was a render of its back, the company started taking pre-orders immediately after its announcement.

So you would be excused for thinking this brand-new screen tech is just a dumb marketing gimmick — or even an …

This Essential Phone scratch and bend test reveals the toughness of titanium and ceramic

Priced at $699, the Essential Phone is more than just another high-end handset – thanks to its design and the rather rare materials that it’s made of, including titanium and ceramic. As it turns out, these materials make the phone tougher than most of its competitors.

The scratch and bend test seen in the video below shows that the Essential Phone is seriously well built. The entire front of the device (camera included) is covered by Gorilla Glass 5 – this puts it on par with the likes of Apple iPhone 7 and Samsung Galaxy S8. In other words, the handset’s …

Furthermore, the company announced that it is now testing different tools that …

Galaxy Note 8 marketing booklet caught in the wild, reveals details about the unannounced phone

So, we all know the Note 8 is coming. And, thanks to a bucketload of leaks, we also pretty much know what it’s going to look like. There’s a point to be made about leaks ruining the excitement of a phone reveal somewhere around here, but we’re not trying to make that point right now.

For a while now, we’ve known that the Note 8 would have a dual camera module on the back. But it has been up in the air how Sammy plans to use it — would it go for a wide lens, RGB and monochrome sensor combo, or do the telephoto lens portrait shooter thing? Well, recent leaks suggest …

Code reveals how the iPhone 8's resizable home key could look, tips 240fps slow-mo at 1080p

Among new HomePod firmware revelations about the upcoming iPhones, such as slow-mo video with 240fps at 1080p instead of 720p, and “MultiBiometrics” security, code diggers have found this gem – the iPhone 8’s virtual home button might be resizable, and there could indeed be a “function” area around it, as analysts predicted.
Developer Steve Troughton-Smith has made a deep dive into the HomePod firmware code with the specific goal to find any reference to an on-screen home key, as many analysts tipped the lack of a physical one on the iPhone 8. Lo and behold, he found …

Elon Musk reveals SpaceX Falcon Heavy launch animation, and it's amazing

TwitterFacebook

We’re only about four months away from the first SpaceX launch of the most powerful rocket ship on the planet, the Falcon Heavy, and now we have an idea of what that’ll look like. 

In a post on his Instagram page on Friday, SpaceX founder Elon Musk revealed a new animation that shows exactly how he hopes the launch of the massive spacecraft will come off. 

There’s no dramatic music or special effects. Those aren’t needed — the process alone is amazing enough. First we see the Falcon Heavy lift off, and soon after its two booster rockets separate and return to Earth in controlled landings, intact and ready to be prepared for future missions.  Read more…

iPhone 8 leaked picture reveals vertically mounted dual-camera module

The iPhone 8 is supposed to be the most expensive iPhone launched by Apple this year, as analysts predict a price of at least $1,000 for the device. On top of that, the Cupertino-based company might not be able to make it available on the market until late October, unlike the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus which should go on sale in mid-September.

Nevertheless, those who want to purchase the most advanced iPhone to date will most likely wait for the iPhone 8. A picture allegedly showing an iPhone 8 dummy unit leaked yesterday. The image suggests the handset will feature a dual-camera …
