Today, Apple announced changes to its iMac product line, with significant upgrades in the 27-inch model, a move to SSDs in the 21.5-inch model, and more performance at lower prices for the iMac Pro.

The 27-inch iMac still has a 5K display, and its chassis is the same. Those hoping for smaller bezels will be disappointed. That said, Apple is bringing TrueTone to this display, and it's offering the same NanoTexture tech we've seen in the company's Pro Display XDR as a $500 upgrade.

It's also getting 10th generation Comet Lake CPUs across all configurations, with 6- and 8-core CPUs standard. The top available CPU configuration is a 10-core Intel Core i9 with Turbo Boost up to 5GHz. 8GB DDR4 at 2666MHz is still standard, but the maximum capacity you can configure at purchase has doubled to 128GB.

Unsolved Mysteries of the Mortal Kombat Universe

Ars Technica - 19 min 33 sec ago

Video directed by Justin Wolfson, edited by Ron Douglas. Click here for transcript.

Since the early days of Mortal Kombat, the series has had a wonderfully B-movie-like approach to universe building. Gods, portals to other realms, skeletal ninjas returning from the dead, shapeshifters, cyborgs, monsters, and things you figured would never really be explained because they were just there for the hell of it.

Why were there screaming trees in the background of Mortal Kombat 2? I never felt the need to know as a kid; just looking cool was enough.

Turns out the trees—excuse me, the Living Forest—has a fan wiki entry and a multi-game-appearance track record, because of course it does. The Mortal Kombat team has developed a fanatical devotion to building out their game world over the decades. Their dedication is matched only by the enthusiasm of the franchise's fan base to consume and dig into this backstory.

Microsoft has said it wants to buy the US arm of TikTok, the Chinese viral short-video app that is in the crosshairs of regulators and the White House.

But a deal, which is likely to run to several billion dollars, faces myriad technical and political challenges and will have to satisfy Zhang Yiming, the app’s founder, his powerful investors both in China and the west, and the Trump administration.

Microsoft said it would aim to complete a deal by September 15, but in an internal letter to staff on Monday, Zhang said the talks were “preliminary” and the exact details had not been worked out. Here is what is left to be decided.

At least 36 crew members and five passengers of the Norwegian cruise ship, MS Roald Amundsen, have tested positive for COVID-19.

Four of the infected crew members have been hospitalized and hundreds of passengers are in quarantine, awaiting test results.

MS Roald Amundsen is run by the Norwegian firm Hurtigruten, which in mid-June became the first cruise ship operator in the world to resume voyages amid the coronavirus pandemic. Hurtigruten assured travelers that it followed national public health guidelines and touted safety precautions for passengers on board, including social distancing, increased hygiene and sanitation protocols, and a vow to sail at no more than 50 percent capacity.
