We've had induction charging and NFC for YEARS now. Why is NFC/BT enabled charge pads NOT the standard already‽‽

I realize it was only recently that Apple invented magiciacally charging and iPay, but seriously. Do we honestly care more about shaving a mm or two off a device over ease of use and technological progress?

'Star Trek: Discovery' has been consulting with a black woman astronaut. Could this mean they're looking to cast a black woman as the starship captain for the new CBS All Access series?

+Heidi Schabziger Yes, minorities are still hardly represented. I guess you didn't get the memo of #OscarsSoWhite a second year in a row? Good thing the Emmys didn't follow suit.

"Extra help?" I'd say it's righting a wrong.

Review of Batman: The Killing Joke

3 out of 5 stars.

No spoilers here. Saw it in the theater on July 25, 2016.

I had never read The Killing Joke (on purpose - DC was and is milking Batman more than any other character or group is, DC OR Marvel, for the past 20 years. There is too much content. Wolverine for a while was a close second I'd say.

I found the movie enjoyable overall. I am aware that a couple things were added (of course they were) which were not part of the original story, but still found the movie very good.

My biggest complaint is with what my fellow collectors would call the most important scene. I won't name it, but they'll know what I mean. It actually did NOT work well with me. Part of the reason was because they missed a key "sound effect" (a police siren), and then they altered how the "word play" went. Since the scene in question has been a long-standing point of contention with people (because it's left deliberately unclear in the comic book), I felt that they could have handled it better.

The animation was typical American half-assery (which was annoying because the "frame rate" was as log as any regular cartoon) and if they thought this was going to be a masterpiece, they should have made the animation smoother.

Voice actin was spot on, and that was expected since they used voices that are known and loved.

Another shortcoming was the MUSIC. Despite, in the theater, there being a big to-do after the movie about the music composition and production, it was sorely lacking. There were far too many "silent" moments in the movie where music would have fixed it and made it better. And the "musical number" that was to be a key eerie point of the story? Bah. Fail.

So, due to the shortcomings, I give this a 3 out of 5 stars.

Batman: The Dark Knight Returns (parts 1 and 2) was FAR better.

Is this similar to the invisible dog? I took the leash of mine, and now I can't find him.

Freewheeling Galaxies Collide in a Blaze of Star Birth

A dusty spiral galaxy appears to be rotating on edge, like a pinwheel, as it slides through the larger, bright galaxy NGC 1275.

These images, taken with Hubble's Wide Field Planetary Camera 2  (WFPC2), show traces of spiral structure accompanied by dramatic dust lanes and bright blue regions that mark areas of active star formation.

Inception was a joke compared to this. Get ready for the Marvel acid trip that is Doctor Strange!

+SuperXrooT Dr Strange is Marvel, not DC but yes, I agree, this is way inferior FX, way too basic in comparison.

I really don't want to pop anybody's bubble but this is a serious problem. I don't have any recommendations as to what to do about it though.
You?

Any thoughts as to why cooling loop doesn't cool?

GIGABYTE GA-Z170N-WIFI (rev. 1.0)
Cooler Master SickleFlow 120

Radiator doesn't seem to do anything when I'm in BIOS (switching to CPU monitoring screen shows temp climb to 100C), but goes back down when boot into OS.
However, with fairly small load (25-50%), radiator blows cool air while CPU runs ~87-100C.

That's my point. The coolant cannot be flowing. It's either the cooler not working or the mobo not working, but unless there needs to be more than just power to the radiator, that must be the problem point.

I woke up and took to twitter. Right away I start seeing all of the trailers for upcoming super hero films/tv shows announced/shown at SDCC. The one that I am most interested to see more about is Legion that will be premiering on FX. For those who don’t know, Legion is the son of Professor …
