Plex says its users will get access to 'dozens' of movies under this deal and that they'll arrive on the platform before the end of the year.

NASA’s X-57 electric plane is one big step closer to takeoff

NASA’s X-57 electric plane is one big step closer to takeoff

NASA has shown off its first all-electric plane prototype, with the X-57 Maxwell previewing a commuter aircraft that could one day be quieter, more efficient, and greener to operate than existing planes. It's the US space agency's first crewed X-plane in two decades, and its first all-electric aircraft, and though it's not intended to go into space the longer-term implications of the X-57 could be just as significant.

Microsoft HoloLens 2 preorder ‘now shipping’ contradictions

Microsoft HoloLens 2 preorder ‘now shipping’ contradictions

On November 7, 2019, Microsoft announced that HoloLens 2 was "now shipping to customers." The confusing bit here was the less-than-perfect clarity in the message and the differences between the various different sorts of "customers" about which Microsoft was speaking. The first sentence in the Microsoft news post was a bit broad, saying "Now shipping to customers, HoloLens 2 uses AI to facilitate one of the most basic human impulses: exchanging knowledge."

Apple smart glasses roadmap leaks and there’s good news and bad

Galaxy S10 receives more Galaxy Note 10 features

Galaxy S10 receives more Galaxy Note 10 features

Perhaps the age when Samsung kept its flagship lines separated through features is slowly coming to an end. While there are still things that the Galaxy S10 can't do without an S Pen, Samsung is slowly bridging that gap through feature updates. The latest feature set may not be as high-profile as the previous one but Galaxy S10 owners can now at least enjoy some more feature parity with the Galaxy Note 10.

Pixel 4 Motion Sense gestures can be remapped but you need root access

Pixel 4 Motion Sense gestures can be remapped but you need root access

The radar-based Motion Sense is in danger of becoming the Pixel 4's Bixby Button, unwanted and unused. Or to be more precise, it's unused because it's actually unavailable in most markets, at least officially. Perhaps that's the reason why Google is in no hurry to make any Motion Sense API available to app developers to use outside of Google's official list. Fortunately, just like Motion Sense itself, some developers have developed ways to work around those limitations but it won't be an easy task.

Pixel 4 compact Google Assistant UI rolls out to some Pixel 3 and 3 XL phones

Pixel 4 compact Google Assistant UI rolls out to some Pixel 3 and 3 XL phones

Google seems to be pushing Assistant as its one interface to rule them all, connecting users to its services no matter what device they're on. That, however, doesn't mean Google Assistant needs to be "in your face", especially during the brief moments you interact with it. That kind of "ambient computing" is what Google is now trying to push, starting with the more compact Google Assistant in the Pixel 4 that has now started to land on the Pixel 3 as well.

Google Assistant Android Auto bug keeps the AI helper silent

Google Assistant Android Auto bug keeps the AI helper silent

If recent developments, or lack thereof, with Android Auto is any indicator, Google's thrust in the in-vehicle infotainment market might be on the decline. It promised an upgraded Android Auto experience last I/O 2019 in May but missed the deadline to roll Assistant on Android Auto properly with Android 10. If that weren't bad enough, users have started experiencing problems not only with the app itself but now with Google Assistant running on Android Auto as well.

Samsung dual-screen folding phone patent takes on the Microsoft Surface Duo

Foldable phones, ones with actual flexible and folding screens, are slowly becoming a dream come true for phone makers and tech pundits. Consumers, however, are still on the fence on the drawbacks of such experimental devices. The announcement of the Microsoft Surface Duo, not to mention the launch of the LG G8X ThinQ Dual Screen, seems to have struck a chord with more practical users and, unsurprisingly, Samsung may have a solution for that as well.

OnePlus 8 seen in the wild, hints at upcoming features

The OnePlus 7T has just launched last month to some amount of success but it seems that the company may actually be done with its next flagship. Unless OnePlus suddenly changes its schedule, it won't be another 6 or so months before the OnePlus 8 actually breaks cover but, unsurprisingly, leaks are already popping up. What is surprising, however, is that what could be the OnePlus 8 has already been spotted in the real world, providing clues on what it may have in store for 2020.
