Today we got a taste of two highly-anticipated things: The new Dune movie from Dennis Villeneuve (which has a new trailer), and the innovative new Framework Laptop (which we got to test out!). Check 'em out!

MOVIE TRAILERS

by Stephanie Topacio Long

Frank Herbert’s Dune is one of the most popular and influential science-fiction novels ever published, and Oscar-nominated Blade Runner 2049 and Arrival director Denis Villeneuve is bringing it back to the big screen. 


Villeneuve has promised that his adaptation of Dune will be a more faithful take on the source material than prior adaptations, and he’s assembled an all-star cast to make it a reality. Here’s everything we know about Villeneuve’s Dune so far, including its new release date of October 22, 2021.

FUTURISTIC LAPTOPS

by Luke Larsen

Even the very best laptops are only meant to last four or five years. Warranties expire, components get outdated, damage occurs, and not much of it is repairable.


That’s where the Framework Laptop disrupts the norm. It comes with a screwdriver included in the box, and customizing, updating, and repairing of all kinds is highly encouraged. A piece of technology that doesn’t run out of steam in a couple of product cycles? Now, there’s a novel idea.

GOOGLE EARBUDS

by Michael Allison

Google appears to have discontinued its Pixel Buds, as evidenced by their newfound absence from the Google Store in the U.S. and Canada. Now, searching for the Pixel Buds on either store will give you the option to see the Pixel Buds A as well as a banner telling you that the Pixel Buds are out of stock.


While being out of stock would not ordinarily be an issue, Google has also appeared to remove all the information about the Pixel Buds from its storefront, making it likely that the sales run of the Buds has concluded.


Though Google has yet to comment on whether the Buds have been discontinued, a Google spokesperson shared the following statement to Digital Trends: “Pixel Buds are out of stock in the Google Store in the US and Canada and at this time, we do not have additional stock in those markets. Some third-party retailers may still have inventory available and they remain on sale in other markets as inventory allow.”
