Apple’s WWDC 2018: Here’s what to expect

  Apple’s WWDC 2018: Here’s what to expect Wondering what to expect at Apple’s WWDC event later today? Let’s start with the most obvious stuff first. iOS 12 is expected to be announced today, but it’s mostly going to bring stability and performance improvements, some health and parental control features, a revamped iBooks experience for reading ebooks, and some ways to cut down on how much time you spend on your phone.

A little over 10 years ago when the first GSM networks rolled out their services, life and living in Nigeria took on a new meaning. There was great exhilaration that people could now talk with each other, irrespective of the distance, courtesy of the GSM telephone handsets.

Think you know a lot about technology? Just try remembering when these gadgets were originally released to the world. You 're the person everyone — friends, family, co-workers — seeks out for advice on what phone to buy or how to set up their new printer.

E3 2018: The 15 games we're most excited about .
Another E3 has come and gone, and the gaming expo has left us with a lot to chew on in the coming months. Titles that have been years in the making are now coming to fruition, while fledgling works seek to chart their own paths in a landscape flooded with veteran brands, sequels, and prestige games. We’ve seen glimpses of them all over the past few days at the Los Angeles Convention Center. Now it’s time to make sense of it all. The Last of Us Part II The latest trailer for The Last of Us Part II shows off the contradiction that made the first game in the franchise so great: a beautiful, subtle bond taking root within a brutal and unkind world. The relationship between Ellie and Dina, to the extent that it’s been shown, is a sweet teenage love story, and the extended gameplay footage proves that Ellie has matured to be capable of the kind of rough and tumble, visceral combat Joel mostly handled in TLOU. If the Paris Games Week trailer from 2017 left some fans cold, this E3 footage was a solid recovery to get hype for the game back on the right track. —Evan Lewis Super Smash Bros. Ultimate We don’t have to craft one of those “Super Smash Bros. characters we want to see in the new game” lists because everyone — yes, everyone — is coming for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate on the Nintendo Switch. Super Smash Bros. director Masahiro Sakurai confirmed that all characters who appeared across the franchise, even if they “only appeared once in the past” or through a DLC, will be featured.
