The difference between 4G and 5G in some parts of London is wild
Finally got round to watching Captain Marvel and I’m shocked to see the Windows ME recycle bin in a movie set in 1995. Windows ME was released in 2000 😉
 
Great. Now I have to go back and double-check the accuracy of that Alta Vista layout! In seriousness, I thought they did a great job with the throwbacks.
 
yeah they did. Even this one was pretty accurate compared to the weird Linux / Windows hybrids we usually see!

Monzo and Starling are UK mobile banks that are completely changing how Brits spend and manage money. They’re showing the US how it’s done. I sat down with Starling CEO @AnneBoden and Monzo CEO @t_blom to talk about how they’re challenging big banks: https://www.theverge.com/2019/6/13/18663036/monzo-starling-mobile-banks-uk-report?utm_campaign=tomwarren&utm_content=chorus&utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter
UK-based digital bank Monzo launches in the US, says it doesn't have its own US banking license and won't be lending US customers money (@tomwarren / The Verge) https://www.theverge.com/2019/6/13/18677298/monzo-bank-us-launch-date-availability http://www.techmeme.com/190613/p10#a190613p10
Monzo is launching its “bank of the future” in the US today. Monzo is revolutionizing banking and spending in the UK, and it has ambitious US plans.

Surprised Telegram can't handle and offload these types of DDoS attacks. Akamai does a good job at offloading these for other vendors, and Telegram's one (400Gb/s) wasn't the worst we've seen https://twitter.com/verge/status/1139085441775415296
I didn't really hear this as an apology. "Sorry for any offence caused" isn't "sorry for what I said". It's not "sorry I hit you", it's "sorry that you're feeling pain". https://twitter.com/BethRigby/status/1138786938209652736
 
yeah it’s the clever way of saying sorry
I wonder what the front of the phone looks like, because every Pixel has been pretty damn ugly so far. This camera bump looks like it’ll make it into the iPhone 11 too. Le sigh

"Project Scarlett and all of its power and all of its performance is the foundation of our future in console and the formation of our future in cloud," says Xbox chief Phil Spencer.

Microsoft has dropped big hints about the future of its xCloud game streaming service. The company has been suspiciously silent at E3, but Project Scarlett is now the hardware that will power xCloud. Details here: https://www.theverge.com/2019/6/10/18659448/microsoft-xcloud-game-streaming-e3-2019?utm_campaign=tomwarren&utm_content=chorus&utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter
"Microsoft's xCloud game streaming service begins in October" I've seen a lot of confusion around xCloud. Microsoft did NOT announce launch dates for xCloud, they announced a Console Streaming feature that will be in preview in October. They're expanding the definition of xCloud
Microsoft’s Project Scarlett unveiling was similar to Scorpio, but it lacked details. Scorpio unveil video was nearly identical, but Microsoft called it “the world’s most powerful console” and a “monster” while detailing memory speeds, 6 teraflops, etc https://twitter.com/tomwarren/status/1137553879816650752
If you look closely at Microsoft’s Project Scarlett video you’ll notice the motherboard is based on Project Scorpio, with the RAM aligned around the main SoC
Microsoft really still struggles with product names. What the hell is “Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2.” Just call it Xbox Elite controller 2. This is as tragic as Windows Phone 7 Series
