What you need to know

The Witcher 3 on Nintendo Switch will include everything: including expansions Heart of Stone and Blood and Wine.
You can pre-order it now on Amazon

It is being released on October 15th, 2019.
We’ve known that The Witcher 3 was coming to the Nintendo Switch for a little while now, but no release date has officially been given by CD Projekt RED — until now.

Public jailbreak released after Apple mistakenly reverses vulnerability

It’ll only be a matter of time before Apple fixes its mistake.

What you need to know

Apple has apparently unpatched a vulnerability in iOS 12.4.
This has prompted a new public jailbreak to be released.
Security researchers are warning the unpatched vulnerability could lead to big problems for iPhone users.
A vulnerability that Apple previously patched has reportedly been mistakenly unpatched in iOS 12.4, making it possible to jailbreak modern iPhones.

According to Motherboard, security researchers discovered Apple’s snafu over the weekend. A jailbreak from Pwn20wnd was then released on Monday, making it the first time a jailbreak has been publicly released in several years.

These days, jailbreaks are apparently kept private in an effort to keep Apple from discovering and patching exploits. As Motherboard points out, major iPhone exploits can sell for millions of dollars.

The latest jailbreak can supposedly be used with any device running iOS 12.4 and below. That’s a big problem…

Former Siri boss has found a new home with Microsoft, says report

What you need to know

Former Siri team leader Bill Stasior has joined Microsoft’s AI team.
He was previously at Apple for nearly seven years.
He will now report directly to Microsoft CTO Kevin Scott.
Bill Stasior served on Apple’s Siri team for nearly seven years.

Former Siri vice president Bill Stasior is joining Microsoft’s AI team, according to a new report from The Information. Stasior was previously on Apple’s Siri team for nearly seven years before departing back in January.

Stasior joined Apple back in 2012 as part of the fairly new Siri team. Over the course of his time with the team, Siri made vast improvements but was never able to reach its true potential. Eventually Apple’s voice assistant was surpassed by Google Assistant and has trailed ever since, though the gap has closed recently.

It’s unclear if the lack of traction in the voice assistant battles was the reason for Stasior’s departure. He will now join Microsoft as corporate vice president of technology directly…

Astronaut Luca Parmitano held the first-ever live-streamed DJ set from space.
He used nothing but an iPad and a DJ app to deliver the musical set to a group of partygoers on a cruise ship.
The whole set proved to be a success.
All it took was an iPad and a DJ app.

Luca Parmitano may call being an astronaut his full-time job, but he’s also a part-time DJ and he just accomplished a major musical feat. Using his full-time job, he became the first person ever to perform a DJ set live-streamed from space using nothing but an iPad.

First spotted by Digital DJ Tips, the whole feat was captured on video and posted on YouTube. Parmitano is currently on the International Space Station on behalf of the European Space Agency.
