Good bye winter – vagina does not hurt! “Fortnite Battle Royale” says goodbye to the snow and ice of season 7. Because on Thursday, with the start of season 8, spring will be on the hard-fought island. Official information is still retained by developer Epic Games. But two mysterious tweets are already showing details. “Something shimmers in the cave, but beware of those who arrive with the waves.” According to the latest teaser in the predecessor tweet, pirates seem to play an important role in Fortnite 8. Ob Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow also shows up, while Reddit is providing more up-to-date information on the new season, eliminating the potential for eliminated teammates, eliminating the controversial aircraft, replacing a ship as a new vehicle: sound, graphics and communications Epic also wants to improve significantly in the game.

‘X’ Marks The Spot

Loot that has been lost
Can always be found.

So then: Apple Pay for customers of the Sparkasse

Apple Pay could soon also work for savings bank customers (Photo:

They do not do “that with the flags” – but with Apple. After the savings banks have so far stubbornly refused to offer their customers Apple Pay, they are now “very positive talks with Apple”. That explained now a speaker of the German savings bank and Giroverbandes (DSGV). So far, no cooperation has come about because Apple is not prepared for security reasons to open the NFC radio chip in the iPhone for other providers – for example, for the “mobile payment” -App the savings bank. The supposedly great interest of their customers in Apple Pay now leads to the fact that the savings banks have an introduction but check and even have praise for Apple’s “highly secure and private solution” ready. According to the iTopnews Apple specialists, an introduction is more likely to be for the entire group, and not just for individual savings banks. But there is not an appointment yet.

This is how Samsung is cheating on its folding smartphone

Do not fool me! Samsung tricks in Barcelona (Photo: Gizmodo)

Samsung’s folding smartphone Galaxy Fold is as well protected at the MWC in Barcelona as the Queen’s crown jewels. The kinky mobile phone can usually only be seen in a glass display case where countless reflections of light swallow details. Experts suspect that Samsung wants to disguise so that the kink between the two screen halves is relatively uneven and strong recognizable. That should not be talked about too much before the sales start in April – or until then Samsung comes out of the kink to make the kink less inconspicuous. Anyway, blogger Rich Brome has succeeded in taking photos that give an idea of ​​the uneven spot. Gizmodo scoffs at “Crease anxiety” among Koreans. And Twitter is already ready with the hashtag #Foldgate.

Hmmmmmm. #GalaxyFold

Who would not want that? A smartphone that lasts for days without having to plug in the power. Battery maker Energizer makes it possible – with one of several new smartphones that the company presents at the MWC. The cell phone with the not too memorable name Energizer Power Max P18K Pop has built a massive 18,000 mAh battery. For comparison, the iPhone XS Max is 3,174 mAh. Result Expert Expertise: The Energizer phone in normal operation is actually a week short – but is a good 1.8 centimeters thick whipping, reminiscent of the darkest ages of mobile. Conveniently, the 600-euro battery monster, which will be released in June, also serves as a power bank for other devices. Nevertheless: Dear the iPhone every evening to the electricity!

Again: Twitter trouble for Elon Musk

He has done it again: electric car savior Elon Musk has again trouble with the US Securities and Exchange Commission. And once again it’s about tweets that the CEO of a listed company may not publish. The latest case: Last week, Musk had informed its 25 million followers that Tesla would build “around 500,000 cars” in 2019. Four hours later, he rowed back and said that Tesla was only on the way to build 500,000 cars per year in the future – that it will be only 400,000 in 2019. Because Musk has not slipped on the mouse button for the first time, according to Recode, the SEC now determines against the repeat titter.

Meant to say annualized production rate at end of 2019 probably around 500k, ie 10k cars / week. Deliveries for year still estimated to be about 400k.

The end of the LEAD: Apple boss Tim Cook and the emails from customers

Cook mails
Supposedly happy about every customer mail: Apple CEO Tim Cook (Photo: Apple)

“Dear Tim” – who writes an e-mail to Tim Cook and complains about the rattle keyboard of his MacBook, for example, has a good chance that the Apple boss reads the e-mails. As CNBC explains, the messages sent to [email protected] end up with an assistant, who then forwards the most interesting emails to Cook. The boss then distributes them to the relevant departments. So far, the “Dear Tim” emails have had the biggest impact on the further development of the Apple Watch. Here, numerous e-mails have provided the focus on the topics of fitness and health, which are the focus of the Apple Watch today. Legendary is a customer’s e-mail about the poor quality of holding music from Apple – after the Cook personally provided for improvement.
