TNT 1835: Crepuscular Rays
Google is set to release the next version of Android, as well as finally sharing with the world what tasty dessert it chose to represent Android O. iOS 11 beta 6, released earlier this week, includes a feature that lets users disable touch ID by tapping the lock button five times quickly. Beta testers are calling the feature a "cop button" because it forces you to enter a passcode to unlock the device once it's activated. Bloomberg reports that Warner Bros. and Universal Pictures could partner with Apple and Comcast to offer digital rentals of films just a few weeks after they debut in theaters. Studios and digital distributors seem close to a deal, but theater chains are not pleased. Also, Essential reviews are pouring in, Chuck E. Cheese's robots are going away, and Sam Machkovech from Ars Technica talks about the retro gaming trend.
