Google patented the design of Google Pixel 4

We will probably have to wait until autumn before we will be able to see Google Pixel 4 live, but it is today that we can take a first look at this upcoming smartphone’s design. Graphics that depict it can be watched here, here and here. The graphics present us with a few interesting bits of information: they show us a single main camera, fingerprint scanner and, last but not least, a nearly completely borderless screen. The design does not include, sadly, any specifications: all we know is that the smartphone will run on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 CPU. ...

Ghostbusters 3!

It is not often that IMEI writes about filmography, but there are some flicks that just cannot go unmentioned. A teaser trailer has just been released, promising us nothing else but the third Ghostbusters movie! The short teaser tells us very little, but that very little is well enough to give us some ideas about the movie’s plot. The sight of the Ghostbusters’ car hidden in some shack in the middle of nowhere suggests that the group has split up and ceased their anti-supernatural activities. The fact that the unnatural forces seem to manifest in the shack itself might mean that ...

More video game news, and more bad video news at that. Remember the rumoured open-world Star Wars game where we were supposed to play as a bounty hunter and have lots of fun adventuring across the stars? No? Well, never mind now; the project has been cancelled. Shutdown follows the shutdown of the game’s developer, Visceral Studio, the one responsible for the awesome (well, mostly) Dead Space trilogy.

Without delving into the technical details, it allows hackers a relatively easy access to the players’ accounts, giving them the possibility of stealing their V-bucks currency.

YouTube is banning the ”dangerous jokes” videos

Various kinds of ”pranks” and challenges are very popular these days. You surely know what am I talking about: Spider-Dog, plank challenge, Bird Box challenge et cetera. Some of them are scary, others are funny (or both), but many of them have one unfortunate thing in common: they are dangerous. The best and latest example of this danger is the aforementioned Bird Box challenge. Based on the recent movie starring Sandra Bullock, it has people trying to live through the day blindfolded, just as the movie characters are forced to. A few days ago one not very bright 17 years old ...
