Mustafar might exist, and it has a cute lil’ rainbow on it

Plus, people actually put their phones down for, like, two minutes this week.

Apple Vision Pro at work: For now, it's just an expensive MacBook accessory | Popular Science

“I've been using the Vision Pro for a couple of months now, and for the last week, I tried using it in place of my traditional PC setup to see how much I could accomplish. The good news is that the Vision Pro has the power and flexibility to serve as your virtual office. The bad news is that you’ll need some extra equipment — including a MacBook — to really get the most out of it.”

Jurny - What will hotel management look like in the future of AI? [Partner]

With Jurny, it’ll be a lot more seamless, that’s for sure. Imagine a future where the concierge isn’t asking you to hunt down a confirmation code at check-in. Where cleaning and room services are actually, you know, convenient and not all up in your biz. Where customer service doesn’t mean waiting to speak to an agent for 40 minutes (things we won’t miss: tacky hold music). That’s the kind of future AI is bringing to the labor-intensive hospitality industry. By automating operations for hotels and short-term rentals, Jurny is setting out to create better accommodation experiences for the weary traveler. Invest today at just $1.61 per share and become part of the future of happier, stress-free getaways. [Ad]

We may have just seen the first rainbow-like glory on a world outside our solar system | IFLScience

“Astronomers have spotted evidence of the meteorological phenomenon known as a glory on another planet. If this were Mars or Jupiter it would be remarkable enough, but the planet in question is WASP‑76b, which is millions of times further away than either of them, outside the Solar System… and so hot it is thought to rain iron. … You’d expect such a world to be more associated with devils’ horns than saintly halos. Yet the ESA’s Characterizing ExOplanet Satellite (Cheops) found an unexpected pattern of light coming from this hellhole.

Internet traffic dipped as viewers took in the eclipse | The New York Times

“As the moon blocked the view of the sun across parts of Mexico, the United States, and Canada on Monday, the celestial event managed another magnificent feat: It got people offline. According to Cloudflare, a cloud-computing service used by about 20 percent of websites globally, internet traffic dipped along the path of totality as spellbound viewers took a break from their phones and computers to catch a glimpse of the real-life spectacle.”

HP 5101 - Okay, okay… how cool can a printer honestly be? [Partner]

The answer: pretty dang cool, actually. This ain’t the one you grew up using at school. You know, that dinosaur of a machine that made lots of noises and kinda smudged all your papers? The HP Smart Tank 5101 is a top-of-the-line model but at a low-budget cost. So you can expect a seamless wireless connection, mess-free refills, and high-quality printing — all for only $170. [Ad]

Lego's Dungeons & Dragons set is one hell of an adventure | Gizmodo

“Lego Dungeons & Dragons: Red Dragon’s Tale clocks in at a whopping 3,745 pieces — almost two-thirds the size of Lego’s epic-scaled Lord of the Rings Rivendell set from last year. Depending on your experience, the set could take you 15-20 hours over the course of a weekend, but a good aspect of the set is that it’s built in relatively modular steps: it can be broken down into the inn, the forest ruins, the dungeon, the tower, and then finally Cinderhowl the red dragon, so there’s natural stopping points if you get a bit square-eyed from sorting Lego bricks. Otherwise, slap on an actual play stream or two and get building. Or just watch Honor Among Thieves like, 10 times in a row. It’s what that movie deserves.”
