Microsoft brings its To-Do app to Mac

Microsoft in 2017 said it would eventually shut down Wunderlist, a company it acquired, in order to forge ahead with its own “to do” app. It has since launched To-Do, as the app is called, on Windows, iOS, Android and the web and expanded its feature set. Today, it’s bringing the app to the Mac, as well. The company announced this morning its To-Do app is live on the Mac App Store, where it will support most of the core features right away, including the ability to create and manage tasks, work offline, share lists, utilize tags and more. It also will integrate with Microsoft Outlook to pull in your “Flagged” email list and will support integration with Planner soon, allowing you to see any items assigned to you. The Mac version also takes advantage of its new platform to offer a handful of keyboard shortcuts, like ¿2 to minimize the app so it only displays the list view, and ¿1 to return to viewing all your lists. You can click on a task’s text to edit it directly from the list view, as well. It’s worth noting that Microsoft built this native Mac app using 100% AppKit, it says. At Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference this month, the company announced a new set of tools — called Project Catalyst — that allow developers to bring their iPad apps to the Mac by leveraging their existing codebase. This is expected to bring more Mac apps to Apple’s Mac App Store over time, as it simplifies the process of maintaining multiple apps for various platforms. Twitter, for example, said on Friday that it would leverage Project Catalyst to bring its app back to the Mac. Microsoft, however, went a different route. We understand the company wanted to ship the new app to Mac users running older versions of macOS (macOS High Sierra and higher), which Project Catalyst wouldn’t allow. A big question now is what today’s news will mean for Wunderlist — an app that has a near-perfect 4.9 out of 5 stars rating on the Mac App Store and is the No. 21 most popular free app in the store’s Productivity category. As of today’s launch, Microsoft To-Do has seen a surge of downloads and jumped ahead of its predecessor — it now claims the No. 11 spot in the same category (as of the time of writing). Microsoft had earlier promised that it wouldn’t close down Wunderlist until it was confident that it has “incorporated the best of Wunderlist into To-Do.” Some of the company’s initial concerns were adding support for list sharing in To-Do and rolling out support for all platforms — which Microsoft has now done with this Mac app launch. We asked Microsoft if it will comment on its updated plans for Wunderlist as a result of this launch. “We’re not currently working on new features for Wunderlist as we’re concentrating on our new app, Microsoft To-Do,” a spokesperson said. “Once we are confident that we have incorporated the best of Wunderlist into Microsoft To-Do, we will retire Wunderlist,” they added. ...

US sending 1,000 additional troops to Middle East amid Iran tensions

Washington (CNN)The US will send 1,000 additional US forces and more military resources to the Middle East amid tensions with Iran, the Pentagon announced Monday. "In response to a request from the US Central Command for additional forces, and with the advice of the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and in consultation with the White House, I have authorized approximately 1,000 additional troops for defensive purposes to address air, naval, and ground-based threats in the Middle East," acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan said in a statement. "The recent Iranian attacks validate the reliable, credible intelligence we have received on hostile behavior by Iranian forces and their proxy groups that threaten United States personnel and interests across the region," Shanahan said, adding that the "United States does not seek conflict with Iran." Shortly before the announcement the Pentagon released a detailed set of photos that it said showed Iranian boats removing a mine from one of two tankers attacked in the Gulf of Oman on June 13. The US attributes the attack to Iran. Tehran has vigorously denied the charge. "The action today is being taken to ensure the safety and welfare of our military personnel working throughout the region and to protect our national interests," Shanahan said. "We will continue to monitor the situation diligently and make adjustments to force levels as necessary given intelligence reporting and credible threats." One US official says the deployment will include intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance aircraft and missile defense for force protection. News of the additional troop deployment comes as the State Department announced Monday that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will travel Tuesday to the command center that oversees Middle East military operations. A day earlier, Pompeo said the Trump administration is still mulling military action against Iran. The State Department announced Pompeo's trip to US Central Command in Florida after a senior Iranian official told CNN that the US and Iran are headed toward "a confrontation which is very serious for everybody in the region." Separately, Iran announced Monday that it will break uranium stockpile limits set by the international nuclear pact the Trump administration pulled the US out of in May 2018. ...

Former GM Exec Bob Lutz Impressed by Random Tesla Model 3

Bob Lutz, a former top executive from all three of the major American automakers, occasional Corvette-powered Fisker investor, and casual skeptic of Tesla, recently came across a Tesla Model 3 and was surprised to be impressed by its build quality. I didn’t have room to mention up there that Lutz also occasionally contributes to Road & Track, his latest contribution detailing this run-in with a random Model 3 on the street—a car known for its reported production and quality issues. Here’s how Bob explains the experience: When I spied a metallic-red Model 3 in an Ann Arbor parking lot, I felt compelled to check it out. I was eager to see the oft-reported sloppy assembly work, the poor-fitting doors, blotchy paint, and other manifestations of Tesla CEO Elon Musk’s “production hell” with my own eyes. But, when next to the car, I was stunned. Not only was the paint without any discernible flaw, but the various panels formed a body of precision that was beyond reproach. Gaps from hood to fenders, doors to frame, and all the others appeared to be perfectly even, equal side-to-side, and completely parallel. Gaps of 3.5 to 4.5mm are considered word-class. This Model 3 measured up.¿ Lutz points out that he hasn’t seen much of the Model 3 since it’s a little difficult to purchase in his home state of Michigan, which has a bunch of dealer legislation that prevents Tesla from selling its cars directly to customers. We’ve reported on the Model 3's issues with panel gaps plenty of times in the past, so it’s only right to acknowledge when game recognizes game and a good example of Tesla craftsmanship makes it out of Fremont. He also clarified that he’s still skeptical of Tesla and Elon Musk’s business practices, having previously speculated that the Model S would become a collectible car after Tesla eventually goes bankrupt. As entertaining as it is to see Bob Lutz, known climate change skeptic, embrace Tesla’s products as quality performance vehicles, I appreciate his anecdotes even more. So I’ll leave you with a snippet about panel gaps from his time at GM: I had assembled most of the GM products at the proving ground and flanked them with role models from Germany (surprisingly not the best), Japan (better, but second) and Korea (the world’s best.) I lead the cluster of proud GM execs from car to car until the enormous, Harley-jacketed Joe Spielman—then president of assembly—literally grabbed me by the collar and said “Enough of this crap! Just show me what you want, and I’ll get it for you, guaranteed!” The initial story was that it would take time, and millions for new assembly equipment, which I was ready to approve. ...

US recommends Windows users patch against worm vulnerability

Microsoft Windows users who haven't patched their OS (or are using an unsupported version) are at risk of attackers exploiting a vulnerability known as BlueKeep. The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), Homeland Security's lead cybersecurity agency, said it successfully tested a working exploit for the BlueKeep vulnerability. Specifically, the agency was able to remotely run code on a Windows 2000 computer using BlueKeep, it stated in an advisory. The bug effects computers that are running Windows 7 or earlier (as well as Windows Server 2003 and 2008), and gives potential attackers access through Microsoft's Remote Desktop Services. The BlueKeep vulnerability is "wormable", meaning an attacker only has to gain access to one computer in order to gain control of all the other devices on its network. Microsoft already issued patches for the bug last month, but private security firm Errata estimated that millions of devices still remain vulnerable. While an attacker has yet to take advantage of the bug, doing so could easily lead to a repeat of 2017's WannaCry malware outbreak that impacted systems worldwide, including Britain's NHS, Honda and FedEx. CISA is asking users of older Microsoft systems to install the available security updates. Microsoft has even released patches for operating systems that are no longer officially supported, including Windows Vista, Windows XP, and Windows Server 2003. If you're a regular end-user running Windows 7 or older, you're likely better off upgrading to a newer version of Microsoft for added security.

The 5G iPhone is coming in 2020, says analyst Ming-Chi Kuo

Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo is the most trusted source of Apple rumors — once predicting that the company would sell three different iPhones well over a year before that came true. Now, he’s betting that we’ll see the first 5G iPhones in 2020, despite the fact that Apple’s original 5G modem supplier is no longer making them anymore (via MacRumors and 9to5Mac). You see, we’d already heard that Apple might have a 5G iPhone by 2020, but it was slated to use an Intel radio chip — something which we’ve since learned won’t be happening, because Apple chose to go with Qualcomm instead, forcing Intel to close up its 5G modem shop. That came at a great cost: Apple agreed to settle all its pending lawsuits with Qualcomm and spent at least $4.5 billion to secure the chipmaker’s cooperation, for the sake of the iPhone’s future. The shuffle left us with some big questions, including when we might see the first 5G iPhone now that Apple has to scramble to swap out its Intel radios. If Kuo’s right, the answer is: “Right on schedule.” Both a new, smaller 5.4-inch iPhone and a even larger 6.7-inch one will have 5G support in 2020, according to Kuo’s prediction. (Sounds like the XS is getting smaller and the Max is getting bigger, based on those screen sizes.) And he says all three of Apple’s 2020 iPhones — including a low-cost 6.1-inch iPhone XR successor that’ll stay on LTE for now — will feature the vibrant colors and inky blacks of OLED screens, as opposed to the cheaper LCD panel you see in today’s XR and that will reportedly stick around for the 2019 model. That means every iPhone will theoretically have an OLED panel in 2020. Kuo expects all of them will have 5G support in 2021, with Apple having the opportunity to switch from Qualcomm radios to its own in-house modems in 2022 or 2023. From what we’ve seen of 5G so far, 2020 doesn’t seem too late to introduce a 5G phone.

Cellebrite's Latest Hacking Hardware Can Unlock Any iPhone Much To Law Enforcement's Delight

It appears that no one is safe from the hacking capabilities of Israeli security firm Cellebrite. Cellebrite is well-known in law enforcement circles for its lineup of hardware devices that are able to use brute force methods to hack smartphones and tablets. The company recently announced that it has the capability to "perform a full file system extraction on any iOS device" with its latest Universal Forensic Extraction Device (UFED). This newest product, dubbed UFED Premium, can chew through any and all passcodes on an iOS device to unlock them. What's even more critical, which Apple has attempted to thwart in the past with USB Restricted Mode, is that UFED Premium can perform its magic with sophisticated algorithms that minimize unlock attempts. According to Cellebrite, UFED Premium can even unlock iPhones and iPads that are running the latest publicly available version of iOS: iOS 12.3. UFED and UFED Premium are targeted specifically at law enforcement, which use them to unlock devices that may have been linked to a crime when a suspect is either unable (or unwilling) to provide a passcode or biometric access. Law Enforcement agencies would simply buy UFED Premium and have it on-premises for whenever they need to access a suspect’s smartphone. However, with this hardware available to law enforcement, there runs the risk that these hacking tools could fall into the wrong hands -- either with the hardware itself being stolen from law enforcement, or unscrupulous police personnel using it for their own personal gains not related to ongoing cases. In fact, some of Cellebrite's iPhone hacking tools have been found for sale on eBay for as little as $100. In addition to infiltrating iOS devices, Cellebrite brags that UFED Premium can "bypass or determine" locks for any flagship Samsung smartphone, and can "perform a forensically sound physical or full file-system extraction". Cellebrite also says that its hardware supports data extraction from other Android devices including those made by Motorola, Xiaomi, and Huawei. In other words, almost no device is safe if it lands in the hands of law enforcement today. And now that Cellebrite hardware is finding its way out into the public space, chances are that it won't be long before criminals are using the proprietary techniques developed by the Israeli company to advance their dastardly deeds.

iOS 13 Is Going To Improve Your iPhone's Battery Life By Not Fully Charging It

Apple is rolling out a new feature for the iPhone called "Optimized Battery Charging" with iOS 13. It's designed to improve overall battery life and prevent early degradation by implementing better charging practices based on the users' habits. iOS 13 To Save iPhone Batteries As spotted by Mac Rumors, the new feature is in Settings and then Battery and under "Battery Health." What it basically does is it keeps the iPhone from charging all the way to 100 percent and maintains the charge up to 80 percent until the user needs to use the device. "A new option helps slow the rate of battery aging by reducing the time your iPhone spends fully charged. iPhone learns from your daily charging routine so it can wait to finish charging past 80% until you need to use it," Apple says in the preview page of iOS 13. As an example, an iPhone left to charge overnight will go up to only 80 percent, and based on what iOS has learned on a user's personal habits, it'll start fully charging to 100 percent an hour or so before the user wakes up. That way, the lifespan of the battery itself will be extended since leaving a device plugged in at 100 percent for hours can speed up the degradation of its battery. Just to be clear, this doesn't exactly mean that iOS 13 will make an iPhone last longer in a day. It'll just help keep the battery's health in tip-top shape, meaning the device will be in optimal condition longer than usual before it has to, say, get throttled or something along those lines. iOS 13 Features At its annual Worldwide Developers Conference, Apple gave a preview of what to expect from iOS 13. Some of the highlight features in tow include the new Dark Mode, QuickPath that allows users to swipe across the virtual keyboard to type, and Sign In with Apple, a secure one-tap sign-in button similar to the social login buttons of Google and Facebook. Another notable feature in the software update is a tool that combats robocalls by sending unknown numbers to directly to voice mail. The iOS 13 beta for developers is already available, while the final version for consumers is expected to make its way to the iPhone 6s and later models this fall.

Apple TV is getting a Picture-in-Picture mode so you can watch two shows at once

Apple TV is getting a Picture-in-Picture mode that will allow users to stream two shows at the same time, TechCrunch has confirmed. The feature’s forthcoming launch was first reported by Apple news site 9to5Mac earlier today, following today’s release of new beta software for all of Apple’s operating systems, including tvOS. After installing tvOS beta 2, Twitter user Nikolaj Hansen-Turton noticed a new option — the ability to play content in a smaller window in the bottom-right of the screen, overlaid on top of the main Apple TV interface. Or, simply put, it’s a Picture-in-Picture mode. (See tweets below). ...

2020 BMW X3 M and X4 M first drive review: The modern shape of M

If you needed a sign that the booming crossover SUV market has reached full maturity, just look at the number of niche variants splitting the difference between established models. While new entrants like the Mercedes-Benz GLB and the BMW X2 fill alphanumeric gaps, special flavors like these latest M-branded BMW X machines make it clear that the tall-car performance wars are well under way. In Competition trim, the new BMW X3 M and X4 M produce a whopping 503 horsepower. That just so happens to be within a hair's breadth of both the Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio and exactly the same as the Mercedes-AMG GLC63 S -- either a curious case of cross-brand collusion or the world's greatest coincidence. How does the BMW stack up on the road and on the track? Let's start with a look under the hood. Source of the power We've certainly seen and driven the new BMW X3 before, most recently in plug-in xDrive30e trim, where we found it to be both engaging and efficient. But it's safe to say we've never see it like this. Under the hood, BMW has given one heck of a heart transplant, a 3.0-liter inline six making 473 horsepower and 442 pound-feet of torque. Step up to the Competition model and you get a bonus 30 ponies, plus bigger wheels (21s vs. 20-inchers) and a few other visual upgrades. This engine is said to be 90% new compared to the seemingly similar lump that appears in the X3 M40i, featuring forged pistons and a specially baffled oil pan BMW says offers nearly all the trackday benefits of a dry-sump system. Despite the dual turbochargers, the engine still revs to a healthy 7,200 rpm, though you won't need to probe the upper limits to make use of that power, with peak torque coming at just 2,600. That power is routed through an eight-speed automatic transmission before being split front and rear. Though the X3/4 M lack the BMW M5's ability to go full-on rear-wheel-drive, an electronically managed clutch-type center differential handles the torque split, sending a majority to the rear. At the back, an Active M differential ensures both wheels keep turning, but not spinning. All that makes for a huge upgrade over the base X3/4's 248 hp, and thankfully BMW made some chassis upgrades to match. Additional bracing spans the front strut towers and hangs out beneath the rear sub-frame, while massive, 395mm front brakes are squeezed behind 20- or 21-inch wheels. The Competition rolls on 255/40 front and 265/40 ZR21 rear Michelin Pilot Sport tires. That's a lot of sticky stuff on the asphalt, and that slight offset size speaks to the extra power going out through the back. It all sounds suitable enough for the track -- at least, until you factor in the weight. The X3M hits the road at around 4,500 pounds, a full 900 more than a BMW M4 and, just for kicks, almost twice the weight of a Mazda MX-5. Good thing that it has nearly three times the power. ...

Genius Accuses Google of Lifting Lyrics

Google publishes lyrics directly in search pages, and Genius claims that the search engine giant lifted lyrics without permission. In a new report from the Wall Street Journal, representatives from Genius said the site’s “watermarked” lyrics are showing up on Google. Representatives from Google say the company is currently investigating Genius’ claims. Genius’ watermark, established sometime around 2016, makes it so apostrophes within lyrics alternate between straight and curly single-quote marks (' and ’) in the same sequence for every song. When you convert the two types of apostrophes to dots and dashes, they spell “red handed” in Morse code. “Over the last two years, we’ve shown Google irrefutable evidence again and again that they are displaying lyrics copied from Genius in their Lyrics OneBox,” Genius’ Chief Strategy Officer Ben Gross said in a statement. “This is a serious issue, and Google needs to address it.” “The lyrics displayed in the information boxes on Google Search are licensed from a variety of sources and are not scraped from sites on the web,” a Google spokesperson said in a statement. “We take data quality and creator rights very seriously, and hold our licensing partners accountable to the terms of our agreement. We’re investigating this issue with our data partners and if we find that partners are not upholding good practices we'll end our agreements.” Google says its lyrics results come from a licensing partnership with the Canadian company LyricsFind. “We do not source lyrics from Genius,” LyricFind Chief Executive Darryl Ballantyne told the Wall Street Journal in a statement. ...

Tens of millions suffer as power outage hits Argentina, Uruguay

Buenos Aires, Argentina - A massive power outage plunged tens of millions of people in Argentina, Uruguay and parts of Paraguay into the dark on Sunday, in what government officials called an "extraordinary" and unprecedented blackout, the cause of which is not yet known. The blackout struck 7:07am local time (10:07 GMT), triggered by what Argentine government officials called a failure in a coastal grid that serves a number of countries, and a "total disconnection". It paralysed transportation systems, closed shops, caused long queues at petrol stations, and delayed provincial elections in Argentina, forcing voters to cast ballots by flashlight or by the light of their mobile phones. The lights went out as Blanca Brito was leaving her house to head to work at a hair salon in the capital, Buenos Aires. "At that hour, you couldn't see anything. The bus was travelling in slow motion because the driver was afraid he might hit someone. It was terrible," said Brito, a manicurist, standing in the dark in the Crema Rusa salon as she waited for clients to arrive. Aida Suarez, her colleague who recently arrived from Venezuela, said her thoughts went to her home country. "They are things that take you back, to live a little of what you have already lived," she said. 'Extraordinary event' At the Parilla de Rolo restaurant in the capital, there was no power for the entire morning. But the lights came on around 1:30pm (16:30 GMT) and within an hour, hungry clients were streaming in amid the waft of meat on the grill. Running the cash register, Adriana Rasgido sighed in relief. They had stocked up for Father's Day, and bills had to be paid. "Five years ago, there were power outages all the time. I went five days without power at home at one point. But never at work. This is the first time I've seen anything like this," she said. By midafternoon, nearly half of Argentina, with a population of 44 million people, was still without power. "This is an extraordinary event that should never have happened," Argentine Energy Secretary Gustavo Lopetegui told reporters at a press conference in Buenos Aires on Sunday afternoon. "It's very serious. We can't leave the country without power from one moment to another." Argentine power distributor Edesur said that the failure originated at an electricity transmission point between the Yacyreta and Salto Grande power stations, in the northeast part of Argentina. 'Nothing ruled out' The government is not ruling anything out, including a cyberattack, although Lopetegui said it is not among the primary potential causes being considered. ...

American Airlines offers satellite WiFi to its entire mainline fleet

If you're relying on American Airlines for a summer trip, there's a good chance you'll have internet access most of the way. The company has finished deploying satellite-based internet access to the fleet of 700-plus narrowbody aircraft that mainly handle its domestic routes. Depending on where you're going, you'll have either Gogo 2Ku or ViaSat Ka connections providing speedier, more consistent WiFi than the ground solutions of old. American deployed satellite broadband to its widebody aircraft roughly a year earlier. The airline also plans to install power outlets in every seat for its mainline and two-class regional fleets, and expects to roll out tablet holders to most narrowbody aircraft. You'll usually have to pay to go online mid-flight. While American does offer free Apple Music streaming, others have been offering free messaging. Delta has even started testing free WiFi. Still, this beats having to either struggle with mid-air WiFi or wait until landing to reconnect with the outside world.

Bethesda’s E3 2019 press conference: watch it here

Bethesda kicks off its E3 2019 festivities with a press conference on Sunday, June 9, at 5:30 p.m. PDT/8:30 p.m. EDT. You can watch it live right here, or on Twitch, YouTube, Twitter, Mixer, and Facebook Live. We know from the company’s official blog post that Bethesda will be showing an in-depth look at Doom Eternal during the event, but the rest is open to speculation. Todd Howard has previously said not to expect much, if anything, on the upcoming Elder Scrolls 6 or Starfield, however. The theme of the event, or at least the official catchphrase, is “be together,” so take from that what you can. Bethesda may be one of those companies with a good percentage of its business wrapped up in games that will launch alongside, or near, Microsoft and Sony’s upcoming next-generation consoles, so this could be a relatively slow year for big announcements. Still, Rage 2 may get a little more love with post-launch content, and Doom Eternal is nothing to sneeze at, based on what we saw last year. And there’s always room for surprises, so we’re looking forward to watching the event with you this Sunday. See you then! Or... you can see us on Polygon’s Twitch channel, where we’ll be streaming the conference with commentary (and a drinking game).

Everything Microsoft Announced At E3 2019

The first details on a powerful new Xbox console, release dates for anticipated games like Cyberpunk 2077, and another developer acquired by Xbox Game Studios led Microsoft’s packed slate of announcements for its E3 briefing on Sunday. Project Scarlett, the next-generation Xbox console, will be released for the 2020 holiday season. Halo Infinite will launch alongside it. The pitch sounds a lot like what Sony was talking about with PlayStation 5. The emphasis is on “reducing load times.” There will be a solid-state hard drive which can be used as “virtual RAM” to cut down on loading times. The AMD processor will be “four times more powerful than Xbox One X,” it will use “high-bandwidth GDDR6” RAM, and will be able to do 8 K resolution and 120 FPS. Cyberpunk 2077 will star Keanu Reeves, and it’s coming out on April 16, 2020. “How’s it going? Hello, Los Angeles! E3! All right. Good to see you. All right. I gotta talk to you about something. CD Projekt Red. Cyberpunk 2077. All right.”—Keanu Reeves, appearing on stage to rapturous applause. “It’s nothing short of breathtaking.”—Reeves. “You’re breathtaking.”—Audience member. Double Fine Productions is joining Xbox Studios. Microsoft continues its string of big developer acquisitions by buying the creator of Psychonauts. A new trailer for Psychonauts 2 followed. Xbox One is getting “console streaming,” aka remote play. You’ll be able to stream your games off of your home Xbox One, to “anywhere,” starting in October. Gears 5 is coming on September 10. It’s not called Gears of War 5, but that’s what it is. You’ll be able to play it four days early by buying the special edition or having Game Pass Ultimate. A multiplayer tech test, with a new game type called “arcade,” will hit in July. The new horde mode will be shown at Gamescom in August. There will also be a Terminator: Dark Fate crossover character pack. There’s an all-new, redesigned Elite controller, called “Series 2.” It’s got an internal battery this time, that will give you up to 40 hours of gameplay on a single charge. It’s got a charging dock. It’s got Bluetooth. It’s probably pretty expensive. Sega’s online RPG Phantasy Star Online 2 is finally coming to the West, on Xbox One and PC. It’s free to play. Spring 2020. Tales of Arise is coming in 2020. The latest from Bandai Namco’s Tales RPG series. Coming to PC as well as Xbox. (And, you know, probably other platforms, but Microsoft isn’t gonna mention those.) Elden Ring was officially announced. This is the collaboration between Hidetaka Miyazaki (Dark Souls) and George R.R. Martin (Game of Thrones). ...

Keanu Reeves to star in Cyberpunk 2077, release date April 2020

Cyberpunk 2077 showed up at the E3 2019 Microsoft press conference on Sunday, and there's a new star of the show: John Wick himself, Keanu Reeves. Reeves showed up on the stage after the premiere of a new Cyberpunk trailer, which ended with his appearance. He announced the game will release April 16, 2020. n the trailer, V is about to make a deal for a chip and has a flashback of his friend dying during the heist. When he comes back to present time, he finds himself betrayed and has to use his cybernetic body to take out the bad guys. It's later in the trailer when Reeves shows up. It's an evolution of what we learned last year about Cyberpunk 2077, but still no clues to who Reeves is playing. Upcoming E3 press conferences Saturday, June 8 Electronic Arts -- The game maker showed off 15 minutes of gameplay for its upcoming adventure game, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. It also announced new features for its free-to-download Apex Legends last-man-standing battle royale game, offering a new character and weapon to play with. The company also showed off a new paid update for The Sims 4, called Island Living, that brings the series to a tropical beach. Finally, the company did discuss drama over the mixed reviews for its Anthem action adventure game, saying it "learned a lot" and had more updates and features planned soon. Sunday, June 9 Microsoft / Xbox -- The gaming giant's biggest news was Project Scarlett, its next-generation Xbox, coming in 2020. The new device is up to 4x more powerful, the company said, and like the next-gen PlayStation it'll include a fast non-mechanical SSD hard drive, and it'll be powered by custom innards built with the help of chipmaker AMD. The company also announced that Halo Infinite will launch alongside Project Scarlett next year. Meantime, Microsoft is starting public tests of its Project xCloud streaming service in October, promising people the ability to play high end games on their mobile devices while away from home. While fans wait, Microsoft announced an update to its Xbox Elite Controller Series 2 as well as a slew of new games. And action star Keanu Reeves, fresh off the success of John Wick Chapter 3: Parabellum, was on stage to announce his involvement with Cyberpunk 2077, which is coming next year. Bethesda -- Bethesda kicked off its event with humility over the mixed response to Fallout 76, but quickly went back on the offensive. Fallout 76 got a new Battle Royale mode, Wolfenstein Youngblood received a new trailer and a co-op mode. We got a new game called Deathloop from the clever folks behind Dishonored and Bethesda introduced us to Orion, a piece of tech from ID Software designed to make game streaming better on services like Google Stadia. The lion's share of attention, however, went to Doom Eternal, which looked fantastic in both single player and multipla
