After experimenting with different video options over the last few months – including briefly blocking access to 4K video behind a firewall – YouTube decided to introduce 1080p Premium in addition to the existing options.

Tired of virtual Microsoft Teams environments? You can now use Snapchat lenses instead

Despite recent announcements about improvements to Teams filters and backgroundsthe interactive elements of video conferencing software were a bit disappointing compared to social media platforms.

In his latest Teams update, however, Microsoft is building on the success of Snap by integrating more than 20 Snapchat lenses directly into the Teams experience without additional software.

BioShock 4: everything we know about the new BioShock

BioShock 4 is technically still slated for release at some point, even though there have been no updates since its announcement over two years ago. Since then, almost nothing has been revealed about BioShock’s next major title.

When it finally releases, it’s unlikely the next major BioShock game will be called BioShock 4. For now though, that’s what we’re calling it until 2K Games reveals the true title. It’s not just a title we’re waiting for. At the time of writing, no release window or setting information has been announced.

Google has quietly announced that it has ended software support for third-party smart displays from Lenovo, JBL and LG – and the move is another nail in the coffin of the current Voice Assistant.

The swashbuckling trailer of Disney Plus’s Peter Pan and I’m Addicted

Disney has released the latest trailer for its production Peter Pan and Wendy movie premiering on Disney Plus on April 28, 2023 – and the combination of swashbuckling action, growling Jude Law and tons of great shots of flying people/ships has officially piqued my interest.

I already noticed him, only because he directed it and co-wrote it with David Lowery, who also wrote and directed the fantastic Green Knight, with whom the new Disney movie seems to share some themes. But you never know how much a director will be able to go through on a major Disney project, and it looks like there’s plenty of Lowery in there, thankfully.
