The Darkness invasion was teased all the way back at the end of The Red War, Destiny 2’s launch campaign.

I’ll tell you what, though, Destiny’s enigmatic geometry doesn’t hold a candle against that other The Darkness.

Lurking in the shadows of Bungie’s space-knight loot shooter, The Darkness have finally put voice to their long-awaited return by broadcasting an ominous hum on the Destiny 2 Twitter account.

The Adventures Of Mr. Me & His Noble Steed Colin — Going To The Movies

Anyway, you’re my Electric Monk, Colin!

Colin: “Yeah, I found this online: ‘The Electric Monk was a labour-saving device, like a dishwasher or a video recorder.

Colin: “It’s the Media Control Unit, or MCU, that’s streaming it to you.

We’re just hanging out at the local Supercharger — Colin slurping electrons at a blistering rate, and Mr. Me enjoying some light in-car entertainment.

2 hours and a few distractions later (ICE vehicles not being able to turn their lights off in order to have their radio on, and thus having bits of plastic attached to cover part of their bodywork, at the risk of a flat 12V battery — so embarrassing …), Colin’s range had dropped by only 23 km (14 miles).

Tom Ellis Signs on for an Almost Inevitable 6th Season of Lucifer

As reported by TV Line on Friday, Tom Ellis, the show’s lead, has signed a new contract for the show.

This new deal would be inclusive of a sixth season of the show, and would replace a former deal that, according to prior reporting by TV Line, was allegedly proving unsatisfactory for Ellis.

This deal comes after news in February that Netflix was looking to put together yet another season of the show, the third it would produce alongside Warner Bros. after Netflix’s initial cancellation.

As for the fifth season of the show, which is already produced, it’s yet to hit the air.

Netflix hasn’t announced a premiere date for it, either, and it remains one of many, many television shows whose release is somewhat up in the air in the tumultuous times caused by the ongoing pandemic.

OLED vs QLED vs LED: Which Type of TV Should You Buy

However, most LED TVs have a single backlight powering the entire LCD panel, and therefore aren't capable of rendering the deep blacks you can see on OLED TVs.

Since there's no need for a backlight, OLED TVs are thinner and have narrower bezels than those that use other TV screen technologies.

As a result, OLED TVs are capable of deep blacks, high levels of contrast, and realistic colours.

Ever since old-fashioned CRT televisions made way for flat-screen panels, the type of screen has been almost as important as the brand of TV itself.

As a result, QLED TVs have better colours and brightness than LED and most OLED TVs, but stop short of the contrast levels and deep blacks that OLED TVs offer.

Performance - Helping FSGSBASE Patches Spun For Linux A 13th Time

Unfortunately due to the timing of these patches and the Linux 5.8 merge window likely opening next week, we likely won't see this work merged until at least Linux 5.9 if later given other upstream developers don't see to be in a rush in supporting this years old instruction.

The FSGSBASE patches have the possibility of helping out various workloads particularly those like Java and software frequently performing context switching, one of the areas harmed in recent years by all of the CPU security mitigations.Earlier this month I did run benchmarks of the recent FSGSBASE patches on Intel and AMD CPUs and indeed for some workloads these patches did enhance the performance.With the v13 patches , some of the patches have been reformatted and some of the changes omitted.

The FSGSBASE Linux kernel patches that have the potential of helping performance going back to Intel Ivy Bridge era CPUs in select workloads have now hit their 13th revision to the series in the long-running effort to getting this support mainlined.Linux kernel developer Sasha Levin of Microsoft has been overseeing these patches recently as even Microsoft has seen performance benefits to these kernel patches presumably for their Azure workloads.

Artist Imagines Simpsons Characters In Real Life

This is a series of 3D models created by Turkish character artist Hossein Diba imagining the Simpsons family (plus Mr. Burns) in real life.

As you can see, Marge is not nearly as alluring in realistic form as she is in cartoon form.

I'm kidding, Marge could never not be a stone cold fox, even without those bedroom googly eyes of hers.

I'm just thankful Hossein didn't decide to do Marge's sisters too.

Keep going for a video of each family member, and Mr. Burns, as well as a video of Hossein actually creating the Homer model.

6 new TV shows on Netflix, Hulu and other streaming services this weekend

Netflix has debuted one of its biggest new shows of the year in Space Force, an armed forces-based sitcom starring Steve Carell that features an array of supporting comedic talent.

Below, we've captured highlights available on Hulu, Apple TV Plus and other streaming services over the next few days, including the return of a cult favorite Marvel TV show, a compelling dramatization of a quiz show scandal, and the latest Apple TV Plus original series.

The show is disappointingly light on laughs despite having an amazing comedy cast (Steve Carell, Lisa Kudrow, Ben Schwartz, John Malkovich), and it feels like the big concept of the show – that it's about the president's 'Space Force' initiative – gets in the way of it being an effective workplace comedy.

Now streaming on Apple TV Plus If you're done marathoning the Marvel movies, Agents of Shield is the new only live-action Marvel content you can have right now, after the MCU went on hold over the current global pandemic.

Available to stream on AMC Premiere from 31 May Let comedy writer and host Phil Rosenthal remind you of a time when you could eat food outside of your home in the latest season of his Netflix food series.

Facebook’s New App Wants Sports Fans Looking at Their Mobile Phones

Facebook has created an app that’s designed to lure the eyeballs of sports fans from their televisions to their mobile devices.

The app, dubbed Venue, comes as fans increasingly watch games while holding a mobile device, or second screen, where they engage on platforms devoted to things like social media and sports betting.

Here’s how it works: The commentators will host a so-called venue for each event, where they’ll provide commentary, pose questions or polls and participate in chats tied to a specific moment in the game.

Fans will be notified when there’s a new moment, enabling viewers to participate if they want to.

“Digital spaces can connect us when we can’t be together in person,’’ said Ime Archibong, head of Facebook’s New Product Experimentation Team, “and Venue is one way to feel the energy of watching live events with other fans.’’
