League of Legends developer Riot Games has announced it is working on a new, character-based shooter for PC. Based on the description, it sounds like Riot’s version of competitive shooters like Overwatch or Rainbow Six Siege. Riot’s hero shooter doesn’t have an official title yet, so it’s currently codenamed Project A. However, Riot did reveal that the Project A shooter will take place on a near-future Earth and will boast a “lethal cast of characters.” During the livestream, Riot says that it’s focusing hard on combatting PC and network-related issues like picker’s choice, low ping, and cheaters. Like in Overwatch…

After months of leaks, I thought I had a pretty good idea of what the Pixel 4 would look like when I picked one up for the first time, but I was pleasantly surprised. Yes, the bezels are huge, the forehead and chin are terribly asymmetrical, and the camera square isn’t nearly as pleasing as the iPhone 11’s. But the design of the Pixel 4 isn’t quite the eyesore I expected it to be.And, besides, the Pixel 4 isn’t trying to sell you on its looks. Not once during its hour-long presentation did Google talk about precision milling or diamond…

Windows 7 support expires on January 14, 2020. And if you’re a Windows 7 Pro user, Microsoft is going to tell you that right on your PC screen via a popup notification.In March, Microsoft warned that it would begin using popup reminders to let Windows 7 users know that it was time to upgrade, and began pushing some to Windows 7 users. In an update to Microsoft’s original blog post, Microsoft is now saying that it’s begun specifically extending notifications to non-domain-joined Windows 7 Pro users—consumers, in everyday language. (ZDNet’s Mary Jo Foley reported this earlier today.)To read this article…

There has been a murder. Last week a man was hanged behind the Whirling-In-Rags hostel (and cafeteria). I know who did it, but I need to confirm why they did it, so I head to the docks to ask some questions.Or at least that was my intention. Instead I find myself embroiled in a spirited debate about the merits of communism, about how I’m destined to foment a worker’s uprising one overlong hug at a time—or maybe I’m not. Also, I’m having this philosophical debate with myself, or maybe it’s with my possibly sentient necktie.My partner looks on in concern. Of course,…
