Star Wars Episode VIII’s title is simply brilliant trolling

Disney pleasantly surprised Star Wars fans by revealing the official title of Episode VIII on Monday: The Last Jedi. With 11 months to go until the movie launches, that title practically ensures that people will be debating what it must mean. Forget about who Rey’s parents are. We want to know what this "last Jedi" thing means. That’s just brilliant trolling from Disney. There are various interpretations for the title already. For example, Luke might be rightly perceived as the last Jedi. Yoda told him so. But that’s before he recruited others whom he wanted to train. That essentially meant he wasn’t the last Jedi any longer. Both Rey and Kylo Ren — or at least Kylo Ren — were his disciples. Some of those Jedi-in-training died, some took to the Dark Side, and some were left on a deserted planet. Technically, Luke is still the last Jedi, but he’s probably training Rey after their meeting. She’s very strong with the Force, just as he was. Plus, recent spoilers told us that she’s going to train with him. https://twitter.com/forcechokeme/status/823585885107064832 So the last Jedi might refer to Luke and Rey after she receives her Jedi degree. Jedi, after all, is used for both singular and plural. https://twitter.com/HonestK2SO/status/823569443880103936 But what if Luke dies in Episode VIII ? That would make Rey the last Jedi, wouldn’t it? Apparently, plenty of people saw the title as an indication that Luke dies. Even if that’s the case, it’s not a bad thing. In fact, Jedi deaths are somewhat of a recurrent theme in Star Wars . And it’s all but expected considering what kind of life they tend to live. https://twitter.com/ThomasGDNFB/status/823617670809415680 What if the movie is actually about Kylo Ren somehow? Maybe he completed his training before turning to the Dark Side? Such an interpretation also makes sense. Even in such a case, we’d have at least three Jedi on the set, including Luke, Rey, and Kylo Ren. Each of them would have different Jedi proficiency levels, but together they’d be the last Jedi. https://twitter.com/The_Patalat/status/823613012799930368 Some believe that Finn might be Force-friendly too. What if he is the last Jedi? Let’s not forget that gifted people who feel the Force are born every day. Even if the Jedi all but disappear in the following episodes, there will come a time when someone will just wake up one day realizing he or she has special powers and a great heart. Surely such a person would come up with a marketing term for themselves, and the Jedi order would be reborn. https://twitter.com/Jimadebo/status/823617925085073408 Regardless of what your interpretation of The Last Jedi might be, one thing is certain, Disney found a great title for Episode VIII — CNET has a great collection of additional Twitter reactions for Star Wars: The Last Jedi

This is our best look at the LG G6

In about a month, LG will take the wraps off its next-gen flagship handset. The LG G6 will be nothing like its predecessor, as LG came to the conclusion that modularity shouldn’t be a characteristic of high-end handsets. The company already hinted that it’ll unveil the handset at MWC in late February, and revealed that the phone will have a brand new type of display. We already saw a purported LG G6 leak coming from case makers, but now we got something even better, a high-quality picture of the LG G6. Obtained by The Verge , the following image only shows the top half of the handset. From the looks of it, it’s a press render that seems to indicate the LG G6 will be a premium device. The top bezel stands out for its thinness, and the screen has rounded corners. The picture might not show the LG G6 in full, but the phone is supposed to feature an all-screen design, complete with a large 5.7-inch display with 2:1 aspect ratio. The Verge says the screen ratio is greater than 90%, and the bottom bezel is only slightly taller than the top bezel. The phone will be made of glass and metal, the report notes, and the battery will be no longer user-replaceable, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. The phone will be waterproof, a feature LG teased in a promo video, and it will have a standard 3.5mm headphone jack. On the back, the LG G6 is expected to feature a dual-camera and a fingerprint sensor, just like its predecessor (top image). Veniamin Geskin used the image above to imagine what the entire phone might look like. The following, however, isn’t an official LG press image: https://twitter.com/venyageskin1/status/823704542470606850

Charter just tweeted out the worst internet security tip of all time

Every year, without fail, some analytics firm comes out with a list of the most absurdly bad passwords that real people are actually using to secure their various web accounts. There's stuff like "password," "qwerty," and "baseball" on the list, and we all collectively hang our heads in shame. But why do people keep hampering their own security? Maybe it's because companies like Charter — which is currently the third most popular cable company on in the United States behind Comcast and the AT&T-DirecTV megalith — keep treating security like a joke. In a recent tweet by Charter, the company advises that users change their Wi-Fi password, which is good advice, but it's what they suggest as a new password that is terribly short-sighted. The tweet, captured by TechCrunch, attempts to capitalize on the Super Bowl hype by telling football fans to change their passwords to the name of the team they support. "Change your WiFi password and show guests where your loyalty lies!" the tweet reads, followed by the hashtag #ThatsMyTeam. The image included with the tweet is the real kicker: Ah, lovely. There's nothing like advising your 18 million customers to change the key that secures their internet service to something as predictable as their favorite sports team to remind us just how much you care about digital security. As you might expect, the tweet has since been deleted from Charter's account, though the company hasn't posted any statement, apology, or even acknowledgement of the obvious gaff. Whatever you do, don't take security advice from a cable company.
