    Star Trek has sustained a seemingly endless amount of discussion for nearly half a century now. And the newly announced spin-off After Dark will continue that tradition for the upcoming Star Trek: Discovery series. Following in the footsteps of Nerdist host Chris Hardwick — who practically invented the aftershow with The Talking Dead, Talking Bad, and Talking Saul — After Trek will be hosted by fellow Nerdist Matt Mira.  (We're assuming Chris Hardwick could not host because he was previously engaged in the aftershow for his aftershow's aftershow.)

When swapping bands, it’s a little tricky to get it on and off if you keep it in one piece.

    Speaking of the new iPhone cameras, John Paczkowski goes behind the scenes on the development of Portrait Lighting mode with Phil Schiller and designer Johnnie Manzari: And to get it right, Apple relied on what it does best: enthusiastic study and deconstruction of the art form it wishes to mimic and advance. In the case of the iPhones 8 Plus and X, this meant pouring over the way others have used lighting throughout history — Richard Avedon, Annie Leibovitz, Vermeer. “If you look at the Dutch Masters and compare them to the paintings that were being done in Asia, stylistically they’re (...)

    DXO has released its review of the iPhone 8 Plus camera, and it got their “highest scores” ever. No one should give a shit. They assign precise numbers like 96 for “photos”, 89 for “video”, and 55 for “bokeh” — but these numbers just give a false illusion of scientific rigor, as though they’re like CPU or GPU benchmark scores. (And CPU/GPU benchmark scores have their own problems.) They’re not. There are certain aspects of a camera that you can measure objectively, but the overall quality of a camera is utterly subjective.
