Finding a Charizard in Pokemon Go just got a whole lot easier

Over the past several weeks, Pokemon Go developer Niantic has been making significant changes—some obvious, some less so— to its popular mobile game.

First, the company launched Pokemon Go Plus — a device which can capture Pokemon and collect items from PokeStops with a single button press. Then the spawn rates of rare Pokemon suddenly shot up, with dozens of trainers confirming that they were seeing Pokemon in their neighborhoods they’d never seen before.

Now it appears that Niantic has made yet another major adjustment to Pokemon Go, as trainers are suddenly seeing evolved Pokemon at nests around the world.

Pixel vs. Pixel XL vs. Nexus 5X vs. Nexus 6P

See how Google’s new Pixel phones stack up to last year’s Nexus phones

See how Google’s new Pixel phones stack up to last year’s Nexus phones

Google is ditching Nexus branding on this year’s new smartphones in favor of a new “Pixel” moniker. The devices also come with a new pitch. They’re no longer pure Android devices, nor are they affordable. The Pixel and Pixel XL will be high-end smartphones that are meant to rival the iPhone 7 and this year’s top Android devices.

We’ve already seen them pop up in several leaks, but now it’s time to see exactly how Google’s two new Pixel phones measure up to last year’s Nexus handsets.

Note 7 Explodes

Samsung is investigating replacement Galaxy Note 7s that still have battery problems

Samsung is investigating replacement Galaxy Note 7s that still have battery problems

Samsung’s best ever smartphone has also been the biggest ever nightmare for the company’s mobile business. And now, the nightmare has somehow managed to get even bigger. Samsung was forced to issue a global recall of its just-launched Galaxy Note 7 flagship smartphone when a battery defect caused some units to explode while charging.

The company has now replaced a huge number of handsets with new phones that have been deemed safe, but it looks like Samsung’s rush to replace potentially dangerous Note 7 units may have caused yet another headache: Samsung has confirmed that it’s looking into reports that newer replacement Galaxy note 7 units still have battery problems.

But with great features comes great confusion, and not all the settings are immediately obvious. Here’s all the new stuff you should actually care about.

Samsung drama continues as company’s washing machines found to explode

Samsung’s issues with exploding devices may, oddly enough, extend far beyond the public relations disaster that was the recently recalled Galaxy Note 7. According to a report from ABC News, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has issued a warning in regards to top-loading Samsung washing machines after fielding numerous complaints about the machines exploding.

Hardly isolated incidents, the CPSC since 2015 has seen at least 21 reports from consumers involving exploding washing machines. In one story relayed by ABC News, one owner described the incident as being nothing short of harrowing.

The Lion King Remake Release Date

Hakuna Matata! Disney is making a new ‘The Lion King’ movie

By on September 28, 2016 at 2:08 PM.

Hakuna Matata! Disney is making a new ‘The Lion King’ movie

There’s no doubt about it, The Lion King is one of Disney’s biggest hits ever. First released in 1994, the movie brought in almost $1 billion at the box office (which was almost unheard of back then) and inspired the very popular Broadway play by the same name, which is still performed around the world.

So, naturally, Disney wants to remake it using some of the new tech available today. That’s hardly surprising, considering that its newly released Jungle Book movie also earned close to $1 billion at the box office, and that next year’s Beauty and the Beast is already one of the most hotly anticipated movies of 2017.

Apple New HQ

Apple’s newest HQ is a perfect super-villain hangout

Apple is in the process of building a giant new “spaceship” HQ at its traditional location in Cupertino, California. But when it’s finally done, it may not be the most striking building in the company’s collection.

Earlier today, Apple announced that it will move into Battersea Power Station, a former coal-fired power station on the River Thames in London. It’s the opposite of a modern building — it’s a hulking monument to heavy industry that’s been sitting unused for decades. And it’s the perfect place for Apple to open an office.

80 high-resolution iPhone wallpapers for people who love movies

A few weeks ago, it suddenly dawned on me that I’d been using the same wallpaper on my iPhone’s Home Screen and Lock Screen for nearly two years. Personalization of electronic displays has never been all that important to me, but it was about time I made a change. Unfortunately, I didn’t really know where to look.

Thank goodness for Reddit.
