The first trailer of The Witcher It's already here, and Netflix's new series looks really promising, so much so that it leaves us eager to see more of the adaptation of the epic story of Geralt de Rivia, better known as El Brujo.

Until now the first images of the series had left us with a bit bittersweet taste. Yes, the costumes, the sword and the stage looked really good, but many of us could not stop staring, scared, in that infamous wig similar to the hair of Legolas, the elf of The Lord of the rings.
However, it seems that the wait will be worth it. The first trailer has everything we could expect from the adaptation of Andrzej Sapkoswki's saga of novels: monsters, magic, swords, a Geralt with yellow eyes and a plot that promises to be dark and adult (something that has already confirmed the responsible for the series).
Unfortunately, we still do not know when we can watch the series on Netflix. It just remains to wait and, meanwhile, venture into the novels (or games) to make more pleasant waiting.
July 16, 1969, 16:32 French time, the countdown begins for Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins in Houston (Texas). On board the giant Saturn V launcher, they take off with one goal: to be the first to walk on the Moon. On the 21st of the same month when it is 3:56 in France, it's done: Armstrong and Aldrin tread the lunar ground and mark history. It is a decisive turning point in the space conquest and a symbolic victory over the Soviet rival.
The adventure is beautiful and those who lived it live often speak with stars in their eyes. That's not your situation ? NASA offers you the chance to catch up with the site Apollo 11 in Real Time, a real gold mine that takes you behind the scenes of the most famous missions in space. You can relive in real time all the stages of the trip, by personalizing your experience with the original documents put online by the space agency. Believe us, with photos, audio recordings and other transcripts of conversations between astronauts and NASA, you almost feel like you are.
Immersed in space
The site offers many customization options. From the home page, you have the choice to join the mission en route (at the exact level of its progression half a century ago) or a minute before the launch of Saturn V. In practice, both options are equal. Those who want to live the experience thoroughly every day will prefer to put themselves in the shoes of astronauts live. The others will embark for the journey in offset. A bit like watching a good movie, only that it lasts more than 192 hours.
We decided to take the ship en route. First thing that is obvious: the design more than neat site. NASA has put the package. From the start, you feel behind the scenes of the mission. On the left, a first vignette summarizes its progress exactly fifty years ago to the day. Useful for locating with a quick summary of the most basic information about space travel. Especially since the site is so rich that we do not really know where to turn.
The other indispensable is the timeline that sits at the top of the page. From the countdown, to the return to Earth, to the moon landing, all the milestones of the adventure are annotated. As time progresses, the enrichments follow. And they are many :
Bottom left, there are written transcripts of conversations between the ship and the NASA premises in Houston
In the center, the possibilities are many: first access to audio recordings of these same conversations between astronauts and different checkpoints
Then more than 2000 photos taken at all stages of the journey, the Earth, but especially the lunar satellite
Finally, a more theoretical part that informs about the rock samples taken on the moon
There is so much to read, listen to and watch that it is very difficult to go through everything. Apollo 11 in Real Time is in English but remains quite intuitive. No need to be bilingual to enjoy without problem.
Apart from its initial promise, what makes the quality of this site is undoubtedly the thousands of documents made available by NASA. Never have archives of this quality been collected in one place. The photos are exceptional because they document the trip at all times, or almost. The image has a strength that the sound does not have, it is she who actually exists Apollo 11 in the eyes of the public and attest to the first steps of the Man on the Moon. Here, we have a real little illustrated diary available.
The audio recordings bring something else. By immersing him, they make the viewer an actor of adventure and he can live as if he was there, even fifty years later. Let's not lie to ourselves, hearing Armstrong and Aldrin interacting with the control tower is pretty fantastic. Same thing for written transcripts of their daily exchanges.
One thing is certain, this site created by Ben Feist with the help of the archivist Stephen Slater is to be seen, whether one is nostalgic of the lunar journey of the Americans, or not. It is accessible to all and the takeoff is done whenever you want.
General Motors presented on Thursday July 18 the new Chevrolet Corvette 2020 with its official name Chevrolet Corvette Stingray 2020, the eighth generation of this renowned model.
The Chevrolet Corvette Stingray 2020 represents perhaps the biggest change since this sports car was introduced in 1953 in its first generation, also known as Chevrolet C1.
Generation after generation, the Chevrolet Corvette has changed in some ways, but kept its engine in the front with rear-wheel drive.
The new Chevrolet Corvette 2020 or C8 (represents its generation) now places its engine behind the chairs to change not only the appearance, but also with the promise of offering another driving experience. This kind of engine is known as a central engine.
General Motors ensures that the Chevrolet Corvette 2020 still has multiple features of the other Corvettes, but should be handled much better than any of the previous models.
The location of the Chevrolet Corvette 2020 engine would allow the experience and driving force to feel more in control of the driver.
In addition, because the engine is no longer located in the front, the driver may have more visibility than before.
The base model of the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray 2020 will have 495 horsepower in a 6.2-liter 8-cylinder engine.
In addition, this Chevrolet car has a box of 8 changes with automatic transmission. The Chevrolet Corvette 2020 has fin type shift controls on the rear of the rudder, but this time the company will not offer manual transmission.
The Chevrolet Corvette Stingray 2020 will be the fastest manufactured to date, and can reach 0 to 60 miles per hour (or 0 to 100 kilometers per hour) in just three seconds – this with package performance
The interior of the Chevrolet Corvette also has changes that include more elegance and the latest generation of the system GM infotainment It offers great visual quality on the screen and an experience similar to that of a cell phone.
The price of the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray 2020 will not have major changes, since it can be purchased from a little less than US $ 60,000.

Audi E-Tron 2019: Look at the first electric vehicle …
At the current rate, there will soon be much more to discover Google Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL. The presentation conference that will take place at the end of the year will certainly not be the most surprising … After the design and the photo module, it is the turn of the technical sheet of leak on the internet.
Google Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL: a reinforced technical sheet
The site BGR would have gotten hold of many details, starting with the definition of screens. The Pixel 4 would benefit from a slab of 2,280 x 1,080 pixels, while the XL version would have a definition of 3,040 x 1,440 pixels. A slight improvement which means that there should be a change of format. As a reminder, the previous generation was content with a definition of 2,160 x 1,080 pixels and 2,960 x 1,440 pixels.
In addition to that, we learn that both models have 6 GB of RAM (against 4 GB for pixels 3) and an option with 128 GB of storage. The presentation of the new Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL is not expected before the last quarter of 2019. There are many months to wait. By then, Samsung will have introduced its new Galaxy Note 10 and Apple's next-generation iPhone.

When Huawei entered the blacklist of the government of the United States, Google closed the door of Android to the future telephones of the company. Weeks later, the director of Huawei Consumer told the Chinese press that Huawei would have its own operating system ready by spring 2020.
Indeed, Huawei has been developing its own system. It is called Hongmeng OS and was recently registered in Europe with the name ArkOS. But according to Catherine Chen, vice president and board member of Huawei, it can not replace Android because it is not designed for it.
In a round table held yesterday in Brussels, Chen said that Hongmeng OS is a system for industrial use that has been in development since 2012, long before the Trump administration imposed the veto on Huawei.
According to Xinhua, a system for smartphones contains tens of millions of lines of code, while Hongmeng OS contains only hundreds of thousands of lines. As a result, Hongmeng OS can not replace Android, but it is "very secure" and has an "extremely low" latency in comparison.
The vice president of Huawei said that the company intends to continue using Android while it can, but its statements are in conflict with previous statements by the director of Huawei Consumer or even Richard Yu, the CEO of Huawei. Will Huawei be developing a second system based on AOSP, the open source project from which Android comes out?
Rumors and leaks are multiplying around Google Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL. What are the next flagships of the American giant? We have compiled all the sounds of corridors heard for several months to allow you to see more clearly. Since our last update, the Google Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL have been unveiled but also tested by our editorial staff. This article will therefore only deal with Google Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL.
Google Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL: the most credible rumors
Two Google Pixel 4 – credibility index: 95%
A square block with several cameras on the back of both models – credibility index: 95%
No notch in the front – credibility index: 90%
Release in October – credibility index: 90%
Project Soli – credibility index: 50%
As usual, this article will be updated as new rumors appear. Last update on July 19, 2019.
A new format with more RAM
The site BGR would have obtained some information about the design and technical configuration of Google Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL. The first would have a screen with a resolution of 1080 x 2280 pixels and the second could accommodate a slab of a definition of 1440 x 3040 pixels. On the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, we were entitled to 1080 x 2160 pixels and 1440 x 2960 pixels. This suggests that the next smartphones of the American giant will offer a longer format.
The Google Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL would rely on 6 GB of RAM rather than 4 GB as the previous generation. On the internal memory side, these two phones would offer 128GB of storage space.
Two, two, two you'll know two on Pixel 4
Google should logically launch at the end of the year a Pixel 4 and a Pixel 4 XL. We do not see the Mountain View firm release a Lite version a few months after the Pixel 3a and 3a XL.
A brand new design
In front of the numerous leaks of which the Pixel 4 was the victim, Google decided to publish on Twitter a photo of the back of its next terminal. The Google Pixel 3, 3 XL, 3a and 3a XL do a great job with one goal but the Google Pixel 4 should go even further since the firm has opted for a dual camera. This takes place in a square block alongside the flash and what could be an infrared sensor.
This trio of sensors was again seen on two Google Pixel 4 immortalized in London. Only the back of the smartphone is visible on these snapshots and there is no trace of the fingerprint reader. Like many smartphones in 2019, the Google Pixel 4 could integrate this technology under the screen or offer only 3D facial recognition.
In the front, there is a good chance that Google gives up the notch. On some renderings, the Pixel 4 has a punch like the Samsung Galaxy S10.
On others, it incorporates a large upper border that hosts the photo part for selfies. The Pixel 4 would therefore display a less classic and more refined design.
A telephoto and an infrared sensor for Pixel 4?
It's by digging into the source code of the latest version of Google Photos that the teams of XDA-Developers have spotted some information on the sensor that accompanies the main objective on the back of Pixel 4. It would be a telephoto and after a small calculation, our colleagues of 9to5Google found the resolution of this module that would be 16 million pixels. The source code of version 6.3 of Google Photos also tells us that the Google Pixel 4 has an infrared sensor that could allow him to offer 3D facial recognition.
The Google Pixel 4 would be the first smartphone to integrate a chip Soli according to our colleagues of 9to5Google. On paper, this technology unveiled at the Google I / O 2016 allows the user to control his smartphone with gestures without having to touch it.
An improved dual SIM
Pixel 4 could allow the user to switch between two telephone lines. The Pixel 2 and Pixel 3 (and their Pixel 2 XL and 3 XL counterparts) have a standard SIM card slot and an eSIM. Although you can have two phone numbers, only one SIM card can be activated at a time. Pixel 4 would be able to have two active SIMs. However, if one of the lines is used to make a call or to send an SMS, the other line will not be able to take calls or SMS. It's similar to the new iPhone and other Android smartphones.
The Pixel 4 Android Q
As is customary with Pixels, the next model will release the latest Android update. According to the alphabetical nomenclature retained by Google, we are at the letter Q. According to the first indiscretions, Android Q will generalize the dark mode to the entire interface, should introduce new permissions controls, improved facial recognition and increased security.
Probable release in October
Since the first launch of Pixel in 2016, Google has been in the habit of presenting its flagship in October. It is reasonable to expect that the same calendar will be preserved.
What price ?
No information has leaked about it but the price of Google Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL should be very close to that of Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. As a reminder, these were respectively launched from 859 and 959 euros.
FaceApp has gone viral and with its popularity also several privacy lessons.
FaceApp is not a new application, far from it, but in the last hours it has gone viral in the main social networks like Twitter or Instagram.
The users have used the hashtag#FaceAppChallenge to upload their photos converted to the elderly and, of course, also how age affects celebrities around the world. Anyone can join this summer viral fashion. We tell you how to use the app and how to easily share your modified images; however, you should keep in mind there are reports about the precarious privacy that the app offers when you accept their policies, so think twice before becoming part of this viral fashion even though the company says that does not save more than 48 hours Most of the photos
The first thing you should do is download the application from Google Play or App Store, depending on the operating system of your phone. FaceApp is free download, although to access some extra options or delete the watermark of the photos you will have to buy the Pro version. The free version has the "Elderly" filter, which is the one that matters to us. #FaceAppChallenge.
To age a few years the first thing you have to do is open the app and select in the bottom left the option "Photos" to choose a photo from the gallery of your phone, or slide the screen to the right to open the camera and you take a picture.
Afterwards, you will see how the image is processed and all the available filters appear.
Swipe to the right until you reach "Age" and within this section choose "Elder". Your photo will automatically appear where you will see 50 years (or more) older.
You can download the image to your phone by clicking on the arrow pointing down, located in the upper right corner of the screen.
If you prefer to share it directly without saving it, click on the arrow icon that points up and choose the way to share; You can choose messaging applications like WhatsApp or Telegram and also social networks like Instagram or Twitter.
What happens if there is more than one person in the photo? You will see that when you upload the image asks you to choose only one face, but if you want to age more than one person (as in the image above), you will have to age first one, download the photo on your reel and go back up same photo already edited to FaceApp, to select the other face (or faces) that you lack.
FaceApp enjoyed great popularity in 2017, after thousands of users published memes of the photography tool, in which they put smiles on the most diverse characters, such as Pope Francis. However, it was also viralized by something negative: the filter to make people more attractive within the app It cleared the skin of the users in the photos.
Yaroslav Goncharov, creator of FaceApp, apologized for the failure, but at CNET en Español we verified that it has not yet been corrected.
Editor's note: This article was originally published on July 16, 2019 and has been updated with new information since then.

The first full-length trailer of the expected adaptation of the Philip Pullman series of books, His Dark Materials, was launched a few hours ago in the framework of the Comic-Con of San Diego. If we had to bet on the images, we would say that we are facing something big.
The series is set in a world that is not very different from ours, except that each person has an animal soul mate known as a "demon". At the center of the story is Lyra, a young woman who becomes entangled in a dark conspiracy after they kidnap her friend.
If the new HBO series can capture the spirit of Pullman's most popular trilogy, viewers have a long and exciting journey ahead, perhaps the best hangover after the end of Game of Thrones.
His Dark Materials it will be released in the fall and has James McAvoy, Ruth Wilson and Lin-Manuel Miranda as the main protagonists. [The Verge]
People who visit adult websites by activating the
browsing mode of their browser to guard against tracking
indiscreet will be disillusioned. Microsoft and Carnegie Mellon Universities and
of Pennsylvania have just published a study that reveals that the
vast majority of porn sites contain trackers that
transmit information to third parties for advertising purposes.
Of the 22,484 pornographic sites analyzed, 93% share data
users to a third party. 79% of these sites use third-party cookies and
only 17% of them are encrypted. The study identified 230
different companies and services that track users. Google and
DoubleClick ad network leads with trackers
present on 74% of the X sites examined. Next come Oracle (24%) and
" In the United States, many advertising hosting platforms and
of video prohibit adult content. For example, YouTube from
Google is the largest video host in the world, but does not allow
pornography The researchers write. " However, Google has no
policy prohibiting websites from using their code (Google API) or
their audience measurement tools (Google Analytics). So, Google refuses
to host pornography, but has no limit to observe the
pornography consumption of users, often without their knowledge. "
" We do not want adult websites to use our tools
because this type of content is a violation of our standards
Community. When we learn that these types of sites or
applications use our tools, we oppose them Said Joe
Osborne, spokesman for Facebook, in an email sent to our colleagues
from Cnet.com. Google has not commented yet. In an interview with the New York Times, Elena Maris, a researcher from
Microsoft who worked on the study, said that " the fact that the
tracking mechanism for adult sites Is so similar to the sale in
line should be ' a huge red flag [..] We do not talk about choosing a sweater and seeing it follow you on the Web.
It's much more specific and deeply personal. "
