Everything you need to know about Rainbow Six Siege’s next two operators

Next month Rainbow Six Siege gets two new operators, the first of eight due as part of the Year Three Pass . The newcomers, Finka and Lion, have a few things in common. They’re both attackers, they’re both part of a new "CBRN" (chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear defense) unit, both are ‘middleweights’ with two armor and two speed, and both of their special abilities are global (Ubisoft’s descriptor), meaning that they affect the whole map upon activation.

They also both rely on timing and coordination, and have the chance to be especially useful at lower skill levels. Here’s a closer look at them based on my time playing Operation Chimera over the weekend in Montréal. Finka’s a potentially powerful […]

 Clean the air pipe and the vent pipe very well after each use (a pipe or straw cleaner works great). It will not be safe to cook with clogged vents. Oil the rubber gasket or sealing ring every time you use it, so it doesn’t dry out. Cooking frozen food is not recommended, but if […]

Monster Hunter World Is a Jurassic Park Role-Playing Game With Cats

Monster Hunter World Is a Jurassic Park Role-Playing Game With Cats

Monster Hunter World is the latest entry in Capcom ’s long-running action role-playing game franchise. The previous game, Monster Hunter XX for the Nintendo Switch helped Nintendo gain $2.2 billion in market value on the Tokyo stock market after being announced for the console in 2017.

While the Monster Hunter franchise has always been popular in Japan, it hasn’t had the same success in the West. Most entries have graced handheld consoles that didn’t have the flexibility in controls that the likes of the PS4 and Xbox One do, along with a steep learning curve, and dense presentation (each weapon would have multiple screens packed with information). These made it a tough sell for many – until now. Gadgets 360 […]

Wireless Power: Fli Charge Branches Out

Wireless Power: Fli Charge Branches Out

Cliff Weinstein, CEO of Fli Charge, shows the company’s forthcoming second version of the "FLIway" charging plate. As I wrote several times last week, various forms of wireless power were on display at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, methods of juicing a gadget without using cables.

The main contender, of course, is the technology that has become the standard bearer, Qi. That technology powers Apple ’s ( AAPL ) iPhone X , as well as most models these days of Android-based phones.

There were also competing initiatives, such as the highly controversial efforts of startup Energous ( WATT ) to make into a reality the sending of power via radio waves.

And then there are the innovations of the magnetic […]
