Verizon is stepping up its 5G efforts. The company has announced the rollout of its “nationwide” 5G network, which finally does away with the idea that its 5G network relies entirely on mmWave “ultra wideband” frequencies, and embraces the much more reliable Sub-6 networks that other carriers have been using.

According to Verizon, the new rollout will cover over 200 million people in 1,800 cities across the country. But there are a few caveats to the launch. Namely, there’s no guarantee that you’ll experience faster speeds on 5G than on 4G. In fact, it’s likely you won’t.

When Verizon first started launching its 5G network, it relied exclusively on mmWave tech that delivered fast speeds in very small, concentrated areas. Those networks are unreliable at best, and unusable at worst. To launch its new nationwide 5G network, Verizon is using a technology called Dynamic Spectrum Sharing, or DSS, which essentially

Facebook updated its rules on Monday to explicitly ban any content that “denies or distorts” the Holocaust, after years of allowing people to deny that the genocide occurred.

The move reverses Facebook’s previous stance, which was articulated by CEO Mark Zuckerberg in years of interviews as not wanting his company to be an arbiter of truth.

“I’m Jewish, and there’s a set of people who deny that the Holocaust happened. I find that deeply offensive. But at the end of the day, I don’t believe that our platform should take that down because I think there are things that different people get wrong,” he told Vox’s Recode in 2018.

Zuckerberg’s position, and Facebook’s, has “evolved” since then, he said in a Facebook post published

Tachanka has long been considered a subpar operator in Rainbow Six Siege, even becoming a meme known as Lord Tachanka. At long last, Ubisoft has revealed a rework for the character, and it involves modifying how his turret works and providing him with a brand-new gadget. Here’s how Tachanka’s changing, and how to check out the adjustments for yourself right now, complete with the full patch notes for the test server. You may even want to try using him after this.

Tachanka’s rework comes in two key areas: a new primary weapon, and a new primary gadget. His turret is no longer locked down to the floor, but he still packs a lot of power with the DP27 LMG. Now he’ll carry it around with him, giving him more mobility. He’s still slow, but his portable LMG can be used to cut through soft walls easily and deal heavy damage.

With just over a month to go before the PlayStation 5 arrives, Sony has at last revealed which PS4 games won’t work on the next-generation console. Thankfully, the list is very short.

The 10 titles that won’t make the cut, via @Nibellion, are DWVR, Afro Samurai 2 Revenge of Kuma Volume One, TT Isle of Man – Ride on the Edge 2, Just Deal With It!, Shadow Complex Remastered, Robinson: The Journey, We Sing, Hitman Go: Definitive Edition, Shadwen and Joe’s Diner.

Sony has been saying for months that the vast majority of PS4 games will work on PS5 through backwards compatibility, and it’s good to get some clarity on those that won’t work. Microsoft, on the other hand, says titles going all the way back to the original Xbox will work on Xbox Series X and Series S.

There are some other details about the PS5 backwards

It’s been over a year since a Starbucks cup mysteriously found its way into Winterfell during an episode of the last season of Game of Thrones. The episode, “The Last of the Starks,” featured a scene where the House of Stark allies are celebrating a dramatic victory and a Starbucks coffee cup can be seen in the background…and the creators of the series are finally speaking out about the mishap.

It all went down in May 2019, and though that seems like lightyears ago, the confusion and humor of it all is still fresh as ever. Not only did fans go crazy over the appearance of a coffee cup in the middle of one of the most dramatic episodes by posting and creating memes, but there was so much speculation about who left the cup there in the first place. Spoiler alert: Emilia Clarke

Join me on a quick trip to fall 2007. The orange enV is the hot phone everyone wants. Regular paparazzi muses are still wearing cleavage-y dresses on top of jeans. The decision to wear one’s Uggs rolled or unrolled causes the occasional existential crises. And one fashion item reigns supreme: North Face’s zip-up fleece.

Amazon Essentials’ sherpa-lined fleece is finally back in stock in most sizes. See why reviewers are so obsessed and shop our favorite colors now.

Not unlike myself, or so I’d like to think, fleeces have finally had their long overdue glow up in recent seasons. At the forefront of the fleece renaissance has, of course, been industry favorite Sandy Liang, who was the first to readopt the fuzzy staple back in 2015. (Though it wasn’t until SS19 that the designer’s creations skyrocketed in popularity.)
