As an unabashed homage to geek culture and 80s nostalgia smorgasboard, you probably assumed Ready Player One would be dripping with Star Wars references.
You'd be wrong.
While the marketing for Steven Spielberg's upcoming movie showed zero restraint when it came to pop culture references, the director said he was actually careful about name-dropping Star Wars. Or rather, which Star Wars movies he included from the ever-expanding movie franchise.
"We didn’t want to use the main cultural icons from any of the Disney Star Wars films, because those are ongoing. That’s really part of our contemporary world right now. And even though it began in the ’80s, it is so much a part of our real life today in the 21st century. So we asked for some of the smaller items, and Disney gave us everything we asked for," Spielberg said at a SXSW interview with Fandango.

D'oh! What are you doing Microsoft?
Do you really think it's a good idea to only let users open links from within Windows 10's default Mail app in the Edge browser? Go ahead and slap your face a few more times and maybe splash a glass of cold water on it to wake yourself up.
In this latest episode of "Who the heck thought this was a good idea?," Microsoft is reportedly punching itself in the face again.
According to PC World, the newest closed beta version of Windows 10 Build 17623, a version of the operating system due to be released this fall, forces all links from within the Mail app to only open up in Microsoft's Edge browser.

As always for Apple, the invite is a bit cryptic. "Let's take a field trip," and "join us to hear creative new ideas for teachers and students," the invite reads.
Beyond pushing kids to learn its Swift coding language and to program in general (an initiative CEO Tim Cook champions every chance he gets), what else could Apple have in store? Let's see if we can make a few educated guesses.
The location of the event, a high school, gives us a clue as to who Apple might be targeting for this event. Read more...More about Apple, Iphone, Ipad, Ios, and Mac
The recently released Love, Simon is not only making LGBTQ+ history; it's also elevating the rom-com genre in unprecedented ways.
It's been met with a choir of critical praise so far. Mashable's own MJ Franklin showered it with love in a review that called it "a gotdamn delightful romcom, and gay as hell." In a perfect summation of the movie's far-reaching impact, he wrote:
Voices all around the internet are in agreement: Love, Simon is not only a triumph of cinema, but a huge leap toward a long overdue and desperately needed cultural shift.Watercooler, Entertainment, Twitter Reactions, Gay Rights, and Inclusion
Over the years, you've probably logged into a lot of services on Facebook without thinking about how those services use your data. Some of those services may have leveraged your data to undermine the very foundations of American democracy. Hard to say!
New reports from the Guardian and New York Times reveal how a Trump-aligned data-gathering service called Cambridge Analytica "exploited" information from millions of people in the lead-up to the 2016 election. It was pretty simple: The firm created a personality test app called "thisisyourdigitallife," and people opted in to take it, granting the app permission to scrape their personal data in the process. It also harvested their friends' data. Read more...More about Tech, Facebook, Data Collection, Data Sharing, and Tech
