Star Wars: The Last Jedi Official Teaser Released

So far Disney and Lucasfilm has done a good job with the recent Star Wars movies, at least in comparison to the prequel trilogy which many did not seem to like very much. Now given how well-received The Force Awakens and Rogue One was, safe to say that many are anticipating The Last Jedi.

The good news is that we are finally getting a taste of what’s to come, thanks to the official release of the teaser trailer. Now for those who don’t want to spoil any bit of the movie for themselves (we know you guys are out there), then maybe you’ll want to skip this teaser as it does show up quite a number of scenes that we can expect from the upcoming movie.

However for those who don’t care about spoilers (at least spoilers in trailer form), then you’ll definitely want to check it out. We won’t say anything about the trailer here just in case there are some who don’t even want to read the spoilers, but it is good! The movie is set for a release on the 15th of December, 2017 and at this time of writing, the teaser has managed to rack up over 9 million views in the last 8 hours or so since it was released.

Nope, Carrie Fisher Will Not Appear in ‘Star Wars: Episode IX’ After All

As you might have heard, last year the movie industry and Star Wars fans were dealt a pretty devastating blow when it was announced that actress Carrie Fisher had passed away. The actress was best known for her role as Princess Leia in the Star Wars franchise, and also as something of a wizard at fixing Hollywood scripts.

Unsurprisingly this led to some questioning what this meant for the future of the Star Wars movies. There was a report from about a week ago that “confirmed” that Fisher would appear in Star Wars: Episode IX (which would be the movie after The Last Jedi), but now a report from The Hollywood Reporter is claiming otherwise.

According to Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy, she confirmed that Fisher would not be appearing in Episode 9, but fans can expect to see her in Episode 8. “Sadly, Carrie will not be in nine. But we will see a lot of Carrie in eight.” This is a bit confusing because the previous report came from Fisher’s brother, Todd Fisher, who said that the family had given Disney and Lucasfilm permission to use recent footage in Episode 9.

However Kennedy has since said that maybe Fisher was “confused”. In any case this is as official as it gets, so we guess for fans of Princess Leia, Episode 8 will probably be the last we’ll be seeing of her for now.

WhatsApp For Web Could Get A Revoke Feature As Well

Last year it was revealed that WhatsApp could be getting a new feature in the form of “revoke”. For those unfamiliar with the feature, basically it allows users to take back messages and delete them. As it stands, deleting a message now only deletes in on your end, but revoking would remove it from both sides.

Now according to a tweet by @WABetaInfo, it seems that WhatsApp could also be considering bringing the feature onto the web version of the chat client. Basically this means that users on mobile and web will be able to get the same features at the same time, although we guess it shouldn’t be surprising given that the web/desktop client is more or less in line with the mobile version.

However the web version did reveal some additional details. According to the information, the revoke feature will work on messages that are sent in the last 5 minutes, meaning that you won’t be able to revoke older messages. However it has been noted that while the feature for the web was discovered, it has been disabled for now so don’t expect to use it just yet.

We’re not sure what’s with the hold up on the rollout of the feature, but we reckon it probably won’t be too long until it has been made available but we’ll keep our eyes peeled anyway.

Study Finds Pokemon GO Players Tend To Be Friendly And Positive

Competitive gaming can sometimes bring out an ugly side in people that you might not have noticed was there before. This is an issue with many games, which is why games like League of Legends and DotA 2 have tools in place to report such players, and why some games such as Hearthstone do not even allow gamers to chat with each other.

However not all games bring out the worst in people. In fact according to a recent study from the University of Wisconsin-Madison that was published in the journal of Media Psychology (via CNET), it was found that Pokemon GO players tend to be more positive, friendly, and upbeat kind of people.

The study observed 400 people about 3 weeks following the launch of Pokemon GO back in July last year. Out of the 400, 40% played the game and based on their observations, those who played the game tended to experience more positive emotions, made new friends, strengthened existing friendships, and even got more exercise as a result of the game.

According to the study’s author James Alex Bonus, “The more people were playing, the more they were engaging in behaviors that reflected making new connections — making Facebook friends, introducing themselves to someone new, exchanging phone numbers with someone, or spending more time with old friends and learning new things about them.”

Google Image Search Introduces ‘Style Ideas’ Feature

When it comes to fashion, it’s about how you piece an entire outfit together. While some items look great on their own, sometimes using it with another item might actually detract from the overall look you’re going for. However if you’re a seasoned fashionista then this shouldn’t be a problem, but for the novice it can be overwhelming.

However the good news is that Google is here to help. The company has announced a new feature of Image Search called “style ideas”. In addition to searching for images of a piece of clothing or fashion accessory, style ideas will also display lifestyle images of the product that you’re searching for so that you can get an idea of what it will look like in real-life, and the outfits and styles that you can use with it.

According to Google, “Now while perusing fashion product images, Image Search will surface a grid of inspirational lifestyle images and outfits that showcase how the product can be worn in real life. With style ideas, you can see real-life options of what bag and jeans look stellar with those red high heels you’ve been eyeing. Or if running gear is more your speed, no sweat—workout ensemble ideas are just a tap away.”

This new feature joins the likes of the “Similar items” feature that was announced a couple of days ago, where users could search for lifestyle images and find similar items worn in the photo that they’ll be able to buy. Note that this only works in the Google search app or on mobile web.

YouTube Has A Hidden Dark Mode You Can Enable

Dark and light themes are something that has been pretty common and has been offered for quite a while now. However in recent times, it seems that there is a greater emphasis on the feature, with apps such as Twitter finally introducing a night mode after all these years. Now it seems that YouTube has a similar feature you can check out.

In a post on Reddit (via 9to5Google), it turns out that YouTube has a hidden dark mode feature that users can enable if they want. Note that this only applies to the web version of YouTube, so if you’re on your phone, it looks like the feature hasn’t made its way onto the app just yet. As you can see in the screenshot above, it basically turns your entire YouTube black and it applies to every aspect of the platform save for the creator studio.

Note that this seems to only work for Chrome at the moment, so it is possible that Google is testing out the feature before making it an option for other browsers. To enable dark mode, you’ll want to hit Ctrl+ Shift + I (or Option + Command + I on Mac). Go to the “Console” tab and paste document.cookie=”VISITOR_INFO1_LIVE=fPQ4jCL6EiE; path=/”. Alternatively if that doesn’t work, try document.cookie=”VISITOR_INFO1_LIVE=fPQ4jCL6EiE” instead.

Close the developer tools and refresh the page and click your YouTube profile image (you’ll need to be signed into your account) and click the section titled “Dark Mode”, and you should be good to go! You might have to sign in and out again if it doesn’t work, but these are the steps.
