There’s actually a way to make the ‘Game of Thrones’ finale less awful

%name There’s actually a way to make the ‘Game of Thrones’ finale less awful by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley

The last season of Game of Thrones turned out to be a huge disappointment for fans of the show, and it was comprised of the worst episodes in the entire series when it comes to reviews. Yes, the show got record ratings as millions of people tuned in to see how the epic saga would conclude, though many of those people were hate-watching the entire time. And yes, there were plenty of good things about it, but the thing that should have turned this final season into an epic accomplishment is practically the thing that ruins it: the writing. The plot is rushed and full of inconsistencies that don’t do Game of Thrones justice. No wonder so many people signed that petition begging HBO to remake the final season — not that HBO would ever do it. However, if you want a better Game of Thrones finale experience, there actually is something you can do to make it far less painful.

10 movies and shows to watch on Netflix before they’re removed in June

%name 10 movies and shows to watch on Netflix before they’re removed in June by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley

Whether it’s intentional or not, it often seems to be the case that whenever Netflix has a good month in terms of new additions, it also loses a bunch of great content. That is indeed the case for the month of June, as we’re losing a ton of blockbusters, including Apocalypse Now, Apollo 13, I Am Legend, and The Pianist.

The slow trickle of Disney removals continues as well in the lead up to the launch of Disney+, with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 leading the way (along with several movies that didn’t make it on this list, including An Extremely Goofy Movie). But this biggest loss of this month might be both volumes of Kill Bill, which are personally my favorite Quentin Tarantino movies. At least we have the extended cut of The Hateful Eight in their place.

Imagine using a black and white photo of your great-grandparents to see what their facial expression would have looked like as they speak. That’s the kind of trick current technology can actually make possible. Using artificial intelligence and machine learning, companies only need a single picture to bring it to life, whether it’s someone’s photo or a painting like DaVinci’s Mona Lisa. Now imagine someone using this deepfake technology to create and spread fake clips of politicians saying horrible things. Yes, the tech is equal parts amazing and terrifying, and Samsung is the latest company to create mind-blowing deepfakes.

Remember two years ago when OnePlus had to explain that the OnePlus 5 phone it had just launched didn’t really have true 2x optical zoom like the company said? Well, it happened again. The OnePlus 7 Pro now comes with 3x optical zoom on paper, which is an impressive feat for a mobile phone. But before you get too excited, you should know that it’s not quite the 3x zoom you thought you’re getting.

Stunning new video shows off Apple’s leaked iPhone 11 design

%name Stunning new video shows off Apple’s leaked iPhone 11 design by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley

There’s no such thing as a surprise anymore in the smartphone industry. There are simply too many hands in the pie and too much hype surrounding big smartphone launches. As a result, there’s no way that all the people involved with building flagship smartphones can keep things secret. It’s just not going to happen.

Leaks also tend to follow the same pattern time and time again. When it comes to Apple and its upcoming new iPhone models, the first details always come from plugged-in Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kui, who now works for TF International Securities. He has multiple contacts deep in Apple’s supply chain, and the information he gets from them is almost always accurate. Then, a few months later, schematics for the unreleased iPhone models are stolen off of Foxconn’s servers in China. Third-party accessory makers use these files to build protective cases that are ready in time for release, and graphic designers use them to mock up accurate renders of upcoming iPhone models. That’s the phase we’re in right now, and a recently released video gets up close and personal with Apple’s new overhauled iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Max design.
