Horizon Zero Dawn’s Aloy is coming to Genshin Impact and you can get her for free

With Horizon Forbidden West on the way, it makes sense that Sony would want to cross-promote the game and its characters with other popular games. It's little surprise, then, to hear that Aloy - the main character in Horizon Zero Dawn and Horizon Forbidden West - is coming to Genshin Impact. She'll be going live in an upcoming update and will first be available to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 players.

Twitter lets users downvote tweets, but not to encourage negativity

Twitter lets users downvote tweets, but not to encourage negativity

Twitter is now testing upvote and downvote buttons on tweets, though they're only visible to users who access the platform through the company's iOS app at this time. The idea of upvote and downvote buttons are nothing new -- they're a core aspect of Reddit, for example, and many people have asked for them on platforms like Facebook. They're also a potential problem for social media sites.

iPadOS 14.7 released a day after iOS: What’s new?

iPadOS 14.7 released a day after iOS: What’s new?

The iPad version of the "14.7" update post-Beta was released today, right around a day after its iOS equivalent. The software operating systems known as iOS and iPadOS are different, each of them different based on their intended device family, so it shouldn't seem unreasonable that they wouldn't always be released at the same time. But given the release schedule of iOS and iPadOS versions so far, and the fact that they have the same software version number, it's odd to see their release dates differ.

If COVID crowding on public transit scares you, Google Maps could have the fix

If COVID crowding on public transit scares you, Google Maps could have the fix

While it might feel like we're coming out of the pandemic here in the US, where vaccines are easily obtainable, COVID-19 is still out there. With a significant unvaccinated population potentially giving rise to more resilient variants, it's hard to blame those who want to take more precautions when venturing out into the world. Google Maps is going to help out on that front, as it's rolling out some new features to help users around the world "navigate new normals."

Five iPhone 13 release day feature tips: The best or bust?

Today we're taking a peek at the latest batch of iPhone 13 leaks and likely features to compare to what's already likely in your pocket - or in your hand right now. If you JUST purchased an iPhone 12 or iPhone 12 Pro this year, you might want to turn away and pretend the iPhone 13 doesn't exist, as it'll be JUST different enough that you'll wish you'd waited. If you purchased an iPhone 11 last year, or the year before that, the time to upgrade to an iPhone 13 might be at hand for you at the end of this year.

The early iPhone 13 leaks may have been a bit too touchy

The early iPhone 13 leaks may have been a bit too touchy

Revelations this week suggest we're going to see an iPhone 13 this year without features reported in the earliest of smartphone leaks. The iPhone 13, as it's still unofficially called since Apple hasn't officially confirmed its existence, will likely appear at the same time as the iPhone 12, in or around October of the year 2021. At that time, it no longer seems likely that the device will have any finger-based login system - no Touch ID as such.

Pocket Casts acquired by WordPress owner Automattic: What will change?

Pocket Casts acquired by WordPress owner Automattic: What will change?

The people that own WordPress just acquired Pocket Casts. In a world where popular, widely used, and excellent apps and companies are acquired and destroyed all the time, this acquisition actually seems like a best-case scenario. Given the relatively reasonable and decidedly non-destructive nature of the company since inception, it seems likely Automattic won't take a knife to Pocket Casts in any major way after acquisition is complete.

This will be one of two devices with the name "Pro" in the iPhone 13 lineup, more than likely.
