  • Say Hello to Nintendo Switch Airport Lounges

    This might be the best thing to come to the airport since phone chargers. Thanks to Nintendo now when you are waiting for your plane to board you don’t have to find something to kill time. You don’t have to be bored out of your mind which can be excruciating depending. Any passengers lucky enough to be flying this spring might have to send a thank you note to Nintendo. Four US airports well be opening up pop-up Nintendo Switch lounges. So you and the kids can play hit Switch games, charge devices and grab some swag. The goal of Nintendo doing this beside the great PR, is to get people who have not experienced the Nintendo Switch yet excited about the product. Maybe even convert a few non-gamers into Nintendo Switch owners. I mean after all the Nintendo Switch is so portable that is a great companion for travelers. Passengers will be able to play the The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Super Mario Odyssey and Super Mario Party. They will also be available to play in both TV mode and portable mode.

    Once you get your fill and before they start calling your name over the terminal speakers, you can purchase a Switch and some games. However strange enough and a major oversight in my opinion; travelers can’t get their Nintendo Switch console on the same day and take them on their trip. Instead Nintendo will ship the products you buy. For all that you might as well buy it from Amazon or any of the Best Buy kiosks that have Nintendo Switch in them. Nintendo will give those that do order a Switch or Switch Lite a free carrying case and a Nintendo-themed luggage handle wrap plus a $10 Target coupon for any Nintendo purchase of $75 or more.

    These are the four U.S. Nintendo Switch pop up airport lounge and how long they will be available.

    • Chicago, Illinois’ O’Hare International Airport will have one in Terminal A’s Concourse B, between Gates B12 and B14, between February 17-March 29, 2020.
    • Dallas, Texas’ Dallas Love Field will have one in the West Terminal near Gates 14 and 16 between February 13-March 26, 2020.
    • Seattle, Washington’s Seattle – Tacoma International Airport will have one in Concourse C next to Gate C10 between February 17-March 29, 2020.
    • Washington, D.C.’s Dulles International Airport will have one one in Concourse B next to Gate B62 between February 17-March 29, 2020.

  • How to Pair Xbox One or PS4 Controller to iPhone or iPad

    Did you know that Apple has added native support for PS4 and Xbox One controllers? Add to that Apple Arcade as well as Google’s Stadia and you can quickly see how iPhones/iPads can become great gaming devices. Touch screens are great but nothing enhances the overall gaming experience more than a controller. If you have one of these systems and want to learn how to pair a PS4 or Xbox One controller with your iOS device, read our guide.

    First thing first; it’s a no brainer but I have to make sure it’s written down for that one person that assumes otherwise. Your iPhone or iPad must be running the latest iOS. As of this writing iPadOS or iOS13 for iPhones. Anything below that won’t work. You won’t have to switch between the touch screen and controller because all games support PS4 and Xbox controllers.

    Step 3: On your iPhone or iPad, you should see the ‘DualShock 4 Wireless Controller’ show up under Bluetooth. Tap on it to finish the pairing process.

    That’s It…but read this…

    That’s it! You have successfully paired your PS4 or Xbox One controller with your iPhone or iPad. Keep in mind once you pair your PS4 or Xbox controller to an iPhone or iPad, it won’t work on your system anymore. You will have to pair the controller with your console again if you want to use it on the system. You can work around this by simply using a microUSB cable connected to your system or getting another controller.

  • Saintel Daily’s Top Technology Stories That You Need in Your Life!
    google ai

    If you’ve been wondering what’s happening with technology these days, you need to look no further than today’s post:

    • A former Google employee has alleged that Google’s top lawyer had a child with her while he was married and then cut her off. In addition, she describes the culture at Google as toxic that protects elite men. Jennifer Blakely is the former Google employee, published details about her relationship with Alphabet chief counsel David Drummond.
    • Apple has apologized and announced changes to its AI assistant Siri after a report revealed that human workers regularly hear private voice conversations. Apple is now making a few changes to how it grades Siri’s accuracy, which includes not recording Siri conversations by default. This is in addition to some other new policies that Apple has recently announced.
    • Google executives told Reuters that despite Huawei’s 90-day license from the Department of Commerce, it can’t license Android OS for its upcoming phones. Huawei’s flagship Mate 30 is on the way, and an executive said that it cannot be sold with Google apps and services. Does this mean Huawei will be bringing the world their own operating system?
    • Oculus co-founder Michael Antonov has been accused of putting his hand under a woman’s skirt during a private Virtual Reality demonstration following an event at the 2016 Game Developers Conference. Antonov was Oculus’s chief software architect, but he left the company earlier this year. I wonder if there is a connection to this event?
    • The Grace Hopper Celebration, which is the world’s largest conference for women in technology, has dropped Palantir as a sponsor over its work with ICE. Prior to the announcement, a Change.org petition was published demanding that Palantir be dropped as a sponsor. And their efforts seemed to have worked.
    • The CEO of OnePlus has shared the first glimpse of the OnePlusTV, one of the most mysterious gadgets of 2019. The images shared by Pete Lau show him packaging the OnePlus TV off the production line as well as a OnePlus TV seemingly going through a screen calibration test. The OnePlus TV will have a premium price tag and will come with 4K resolution on a QLED screen and will run on an optimized and customized version of Google’s Android TV platform.
    • WeWork replaced 43 million of CEO Adam Newmann’s stock options with special “profit interests”. This is unsettling, according to a compensation expert. The company has warned investors that if they don’t like the way that Neumann is paying himself or running the company, there is little that they can do about it.
    • Microsoft’s massive online gaming service, Xbox Live, went down for millions of people this week. Microsoft warned of issues with core functionality including signing in, creating, managing or recovering an account and even the search function. That’s not very helpful for anyone trying to use Xbox Live this week.
    • Facebook is adding new verification requirements for ads on its platform related to social issues, elections and politics in advance of the 2020 US election. Starting in mid-September, organizations will have to prove they are registered with the US government to run political ads, and a disclaimer on the ad will list them as a “Confirmed Organization”.
