The 3 Point Contest was pretty close this year with Devin Booker, who got into the contest as a replacement for Damian Lillard, lost by 1 point in the final round to Buddy Hield from the Sacramento Kings.

NBA All-Star Game Snubs

This week, the roster for the NBA All-Star game have been published and as always, we hear some voices of players who aren’t happy with their absence in those published rosters.

3 of the biggest names in the NBA who won’t be playing in the traditional All-Star Game are Kyrie Irving (mostly due injuries), Bradley Beal and Devin Booker.

Beal said – “A little pissed off about it … It’s disrespectful. … I’m gonna try and get my team in the playoffs for sure.”

Devin Booker said – “It was always a goal of mine, but it just re-proves the point that the NBA is different than the game that I fell in love with at the beginning of all the best players in the All-Star game growing up, And now it’s an entertainment, drama, political-filled league. But we’re a part of it now. It pays well, so I guess we should be quiet about it.”

Other NBA players shared their thoughts about it –

And on the other side of the coin, there will be 9 first time all stars in the game, on of them is Bam Adebayo who got the news with his family –

The game this year will be dedicated to Kobe Bryant who died in a helicopter crash in January.

10 Things You Can Do On Telegram And Not On Whatsapp

We assume that Whatsapp will continue to be the biggest player in the field of messaging apps but it doesn’t mean it has the most features.

Telegram is one of Whatsapp’s biggest competitors, and we wanted to share few features that might get you interested enough to download it –

  • Deleting messages – Whatsapp always notify the other member of the chat that you deleted a message and let you delete it for a short period of time. With Telegram you can delete the message at any time with no notification sent to the other members.
  • Editing messages that already been sent – Most of the time, when we have small typing mistakes, we sent a new message with the corrections. Not anymore! Just press the message, click edit and it fixed!
  • Opening multiple accounts – You will be able to open different accounts on the app. It can become useful to have to accounts – one for business and one for private life.
  • Online without your phone – Whatsapp web works only if your phone has internet connection, but on Telegram its another story. You can log to your account from any device, even if your phone is dead.
  • Don’t wake them up – If you send a message to a friend in the middle of the night, you can send the message without sound.
  • Last Seen – On Whatsapp you have only 3 options to share your Last Seen status – everyone, contacts only, nobody. On Telegram you have a list of people you can add to in order hide your status.
  • Using Hashtags – Great way to let people search for specific messages.
  • Schedule messages – You can schedule a message to anyone, that way you never miss another birthday message again. You also can set the message to be sent only when the contact is logged in.
  • Gifs – You will have your private Gif library which will be filled with all the Gifs you used.
  • Secret Chat – If you have a super-secret message to send, you can open a secret chat with a contact and all the messages in this chat will go under encryption, message forwarding is not allowed and even screen shots.

Spider-Man 3 To Start Shooting on July & New Marvel Movie is Coming

Spider-Man 3, which has no title yet, will be filming in many locations such as New York, Atlanta, Iceland and Los Angeles.

The movie should be released on July 2021.

Michelle (Zendaya) catches a ride from Spider-Man in Columbia Pictures’ SPIDER-MAN: ™ FAR FROM HOME.

We got another chance to see Tom Holland again as Spider-Man and the movie will be directed by Jon Watts.

There aren’t many details yet available but it will continue where the last movie ended (Spider-Man: Far From Home)

We just got the trailer for the next big Marvel movie, Morbius. The character of Morbius is originally a Spider-Man villain.

In the cast we can find big names such as Oscar’s winner Jared Leto, Tyrese Gibson (Fast and Furious), Jared Harris (Chernobyl), Adria Arjona (Pacific Rim Uprising) and Matt Smith (Doctor Who).

Summury: “One of Marvel’s most compelling and conflicted characters comes to the big screen as Oscar winner Jared Leto transforms into the enigmatic antihero, Michael Morbius. Dangerously ill with a rare blood disorder, and determined to save others suffering his same fate, Dr. Morbius attempts a desperate gamble. What at first appears to be a radical success soon reveals itself to be a remedy potentially worse than the disease.”

Leto said about his role to IGN: “Inside of Morbius, there’s a person who has a moral code. There’s a good person. Ultimately it’s that common struggle between good and evil. And, I guess, we’ll see what ultimately prevails. That’s what I like a lot about this movie. We’re not walking such a clear path. There’s not a clear line between what’s right and what’s wrong. There’s some gray area there. And Morbius is an imperfect person. He’s not your grandfather’s superhero. He’s a deeply complex character and imperfect. And I really loved that aspect that here we’re taking someone who is like all of us, has a fair amount of challenges and issues.”

Lenovo Announced on a New Folding Laptop

After few tech giants such as Motorola and Samsung released folding phones, Lenovo is about to take the first step into the folding laptops industry.

Two and a half years ago Lenovo showed a new concept laptop that should be flexible as a newspaper. Back then it seemed so far fetched but today, it looks like the next evolution in laptop computers.

This folding laptop is a mix of laptop and smartphone. It will have a 13.3 – inch LG OLED screen and in any given moment you will be able to pull out a its Bluetooth keyboard that’s being charged when its not in use. You will be able to use your laptop as a tablet or divide it into two screens like a book.

Why would you use this folding laptop?

For example –

If you are in a university lecture, you will be able to open the slides on one side and write some comments on the other side.

You will be able to have a group chat or a face time call on one side and edit a document on the other side.

The ThinkPad X1 Fold will have intel processor and will run at first Windows 10 and later Windows 10X which will be built for folding devices.

The price tag is not so exciting – starting at $2,500.

This new laptop should arrive to stores in mid – 2020.
