I’m not expecting to see any new Xboxes or PlayStations. But I’m counting on E3 to showcase enough new video games and gadgets arriving in the next year to keep avid gamers, including me, excited about what’s coming next.

t’s been over a year since Microsoft, Qualcomm and Intel unveiled the Always Connected PC (ACPC) ecosystem at WinHEC 2016. At Computex 2017, we learned about Qualcomm’s undertaking to power PCs with its mobile processors and Intel pledged to support eSIM in all its upcoming radios. The first wave of devices trickling out haven’t gained much traction with the public, though.

THERE’S REALLY NO nice way to put this: In his new film, Zone Out, Silicon Valley star Thomas Middleditch makes you want to do just that. It’s not simply that he talks about having sex with a jar of salsa, it’s also that he looks absolutely ghastly.

His co-star, Elisabeth Gray, doesn’t fare much better: a mustache—someone else’s—finds a home above her lips.
