Summer may seem like the time to go outside and do things, but let’s be real: it’s time to sit indoors and watch TV. Networks generally try to keep things fun and light for their summer premieres, and these seven shows will have something fun for every type of person out there. 

If you need new heroes to root for after the end of Infinity War…try Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger (June 7)

The TV branch of the ever-expanding Marvel Cinematic Universe gains two new heroes this summer Tyrone Johnson and Tandy Bowen are two teens with the kind of superpowers audience haven’t yet seen from the MCU. 

Ty can envelop people in a dimension of pure fear and darkness, and Tandy can create daggers of pure light that have adverse effects on people who come in contact with them. This Freeform show places the teen heroes in New Orleans instead of New York, and already has some tenuous connections to the extant MCU (peep that Roxxon sign in the trailer). 

If you want a little sparkle in your life…try Pose (June 3)

Because the heat death of the universe will occur before Ryan Murphy takes a vacation, the television mastermind behind American Horror Story, American Crime Story, Glee, Scream Queens, and seriously so many other shows will premiere his latest project this June. 

Pose is a look into the origins of voguing in the ballroom scene at the end of the 1980s and will feature television’s largest cast of transgender actors ever. The dance numbers are Moulin Rouge-level elaborate, the costumes are amazing, and the overarching theme of finding family within a marginalized community is nothing short of beautiful. 

If you want to jump-start the revolution…try Dietland (June 4)

The first minute of the Dietland trailer makes the show seem like the semi-generic story of a woman who ghostwrites advice columns for a perfect-looking editor-in-chief of a major women’s publication…and then the murder part happens. Dietland is based on a book by Sarai Walker and is extremely ballsy about its twist conceit, which involves murdering a lot of men accused of sex crimes. 

It’s the kind of perfectly timed satire that’s going to dominate The Discourse this summer, so it’s important to stay caught up.

If you like Black Mirror and love being afraid…try Castle Rock (July 25)

Stephen King’s body of work is so large no one would be surprised if he turned out to be several smaller, very talented people trapped in a secret room hidden behind a trick bookshelf. But that’s simply not true, and Castle Rock on Hulu promises to be a well realized encapsulation of King’s massive canon. 

Set in the fictional town of Castle Rock, Maine, which is mentioned in many of King’s allegedly unrelated stories, the show will weave together the many tales that surround the cursed town to tell a narrative that is sure to surprise and terrify its viewers. Oh, and Moonlight’s André Holland stars in it. 

If you like brain-twisting procedural dramas or are super into ecstasy…try Reverie (May 30)

Reverie looks like what happens when you take the concept of Inception and throw it in a blender with the visuals from Eternal Sunshine of The Spotless Mind, then top it off with a cop. In the show, a former hostage negotiator’s new job involves wrenching people trapped in their own memories back into the real world, and it looks like it’s going to be this year’s fun twist on the ordinary “Cop With X Now Has To Y” television formula. 

If you like satan, butts, or rockets…try Strange Angel (June 14)

Strange Angel tells the true story of Jack Parsons, an engineer who founded the Jet Propulsion Laboratory and helped to usher in the age of modern rocket science. He also joined a cult and attempted to ritualistically summon a goddess called Babalon, had an affair with his wife’s sister who ended up leaving him for the father of Scientology, and was accused of spying on the United States. He certainly lived a life. 

As the trailer suggests, anyone tuning into Strange Angel should expect “a tale of rocket science and sex.” Sounds great, TBH. 

If you miss 24…try Jack Ryan (August 31)

While 2014’s Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit movie starring Chris Pine did just OK at the box office, Tom Clancy’s CIA spy guy returns this summer in Jack Ryan, an Amazon show starring buff John Krasinski. It’s a big move for Amazon to take a character who’s starred in five blockbuster movies (including 1990’s The Hunt for Red October) to the small screen, but what’s summer TV without an action-oriented series where a lot of stuff blows up and someone with a fantastic abdomen does awesome stunts?

If you’re shopping online from a bunch of different sites, it can be difficult to keep track of every purchase. Download a killer parcel tracking app and get your ducks in a row before a fat guy comes down your chimney.

Deliveries

Deliveries is likely one of the first names you’ll hear when you want to find a great package tracking app. It supports over 40 shippers and couriers, as well as postal services in 21 countries.

You can sync your packages across your devices, and in most cases track packages using Google Maps, so you can see exactly where your stuff is at all times. You can even get notifications when shipping statuses are updated.

Download: Deliveries (Free, IAPs)

ParcelTrack

ParcelTrack is another wonderful tracking services that brings all of your incumbent deliveries into one place where you can monitor each one’s status on the go.

You’ll be provided with push notifications for shipping updates, and the very handy ParcelTrack Inbox simply extracts tracking numbers from the shipping emails you send its way, so you never need to tediously enter long tracking numbers.

Download: ParcelTrack (Free, IAPs)

AfterShip

AfterShip is a completely free service that helps you track your shipments with over 360 couriers and does it all ad-free.

The developer recently added a data sync feature so you can keep track of your parcels across your devices, and when you copy and paste in tracking numbers, AfterShip automatically detects the courier to save you the hassle.

Download: AfterShip (Free)

17TRACK

17TRACK is a great app to use if you like to often order from China or countries where shipping to North America is sometimes dicey at best. It supports over 170 postal carriers, as well as many, many of the world’s largest couriers, like DHL, UPS, FedEx, and a ton more.

You get a custom widget for your home screen, alerts for status changes, syncing across devices, and you can add multiple tracking numbers at once, while the app auto-detects carriers and tracks your packages accordingly.

Download: 17TRACK (Free)

TrackChecker Mobile

TrackChecker Mobile might just be the most versatile package tracking app around and is great if you like to order parcels from those hard-to-reach places. It tracks packages being carried by over 550 couriers and postal services in 200 countries.

Customization is a big part of TrackChecker Mobiule’s charm; you can choose how frequently you want to receive notifications, and you can even export and imports tracking information to and from your PC.

Download: TrackChecker Mobile (Free, IAPs)

Package Tracker Pro

Package Tracker Pro has been around for a long time, so it’s no wonder that it’s everyone’s favorite paid tracking app. It offers you features by the boatload, in the form of customization options, sorting options, the ability to archive tracking numbers, route maps, and a whole lot more.

The other great benefit of buying Package Tracker Pro is the support you get from the developer. You can email or contact Minstech Software via its website with any questions or suggestions you might have.

Download: Package Tracker Pro ($1.99)

Slice: Package Tracker

Slice is great — if you’re ok with an app having access to read your email. That’s the whole point of this app: it reads your email, determines whether or not that particular email is for an online order, and automatically pulls your order details, organizing them for you and giving you updates on delivery status.

Slice pulls data from all the major U.S. carriers, like USPS, UPS, FedEx, DHL, and others, and it even goes so far as to notify you if the price of something you bought from a particular retailer has dropped since you bought it. If the retailer is supported by Slice, like Best Buy, Nordstrom, Walmart, and others, you can actually claim the price adjustment right from the app.

The main thing you have to be cool with here is Slice having direct access to your email. If you’re not cool with that access, then settle for manually adding information to other apps. But if you want to go down the automatic route, this is the app.

Download: Slice: Package Tracker (Free)

How do you keep track?

When it comes to portable, computer-less media backup, there are precious few options. Gnarbox sprang into life to address this very need, raising over half-a-million dollars on Kickstarter for its first product, a rugged backup solution designed to go anywhere built around a solid-state drive. But now, LaCie — a subsidiary of hard drive manufacturer Seagate — has entered into the segment with the new DJI-branded Copilot. That’s right, this thing has three brand names attached to it.

Built around a spinning disk of unspecified rotational speed, the Copilot is the first product in LaCie’s BOSS line, which stands for Backup On-Set Solution. It is battery powered and features an SD card slot, USB 3 Type-C and Type-A connectors, a built-in monochrome display, and comes with USB-C, Micro USB, and Lightning cables for plugging in your smartphone (which will charge while connected).

By using a traditional hard drive rather than an SSD, the Copilot’s most apparent advantage over the Gnarbox is capacity. At 2,000GB, it’s nearly eight times larger than the highest-capacity Gnarbox (256GB). The trade-off, of course, is transfer speed and physical size. However, due to the lower cost of hard disks versus SSDs, you can pick it up for just $350 — $50 cheaper than the 256GB Gnarbox.

But that’s not the Copilot’s only competitor. Western Digital also makes a line of battery-powered backup drives with built-in SD slots, both in SSD and HDD variants — although the SSD version isn’t terribly fast. Its 2TB HDD version sells for just $179, but lacks the screen and rugged design of the LaCie. It does, however, function as a Wi-Fi hotspot, support backups of phones and tablets via an app, and can even stream content to a TV using Plex. But the Copilot’s reliance on hardwired connections may actually be better suited to its target user of professional content creators.

Design and interface

Measuring 5.3 x 4.4 x 1.4 inches and weighing 1.2 pounds, the Copilot is about an inch wider, nearly half-an-inch deeper, and just slightly heavier than the Gnarbox. With its gray rubber bumpers, it looks like a more mature, business-ready version of LaCie’s Rugged-series drives (which sport much more eye-catching orange exteriors). One side of the bumper can be removed, revealing the ports behind it. A groove running around the perimeter of the device cuts through the bumpers and makes room for the phone-connector cable. It’s a smart way of fitting a longer cable without cluttering up the main port bay.

The status display completely vanishes when turned off, but blinks into existence at the press of a button, showing battery life and available capacity. There’s only one button (the “action button”), which, aside from waking the device, can be used to control the Copilot by essentially answering yes/no questions. Copy all data from memory card? Short press for yes, long press for no. (A short press is anything up to 1 second, while a long press is defined as 3 seconds.)

Daven Mathies/Digital Trends

The capabilities of the system are further expanded via the mobile app (more on this later), but we can’t help but feel that a two-button interface on the device itself would have been simpler than the short-press/long-press solution that LaCie went with. Also, should an issue ever arise that requires you to reset the device, make sure you have a thumbtack or paperclip on hand, because you’ll need to insert it into a pinhole to trigger a reset. Luckily, we never had any problems with the unit, but it seems like a simple power switch could have sufficed — although, presumably LaCie wanted to avoid this in order prevent accidental shutdowns while the Copilot is bouncing around in your backpack while copying data as you bomb down a rocky singletrack trying to look epic for your DJI Inspire 2 flying above.

Fortunately for the action sports minded, the device should be able to handle rough conditions, and is drop, splash, and dust resistant — although, LaCie does not offer any specifics about how high of a drop or how much water and dust it can take.

No computer? No problem

Despite the DJI co-branding, there is nothing specific to drone flying about the Copilot — anybody who produces media in the field can use it to offload their memory cards. Drone pilots are one such demographic, but all manner of photographers and videographers can potentially benefit from this type of device.

The selling point is its completely computer-free backup. A regular external drive requires a computer to actually run it, which means you have to lug a laptop around with you to use it in the field. The Copilot has its own battery and runs its own operating system so that it can copy data from an SD card all by itself. Simply plug in your memory card, press the action button, and when it prompts you to copy the card, press it again. Alternately, you can connect the drive to your phone to initiate transfers via the DJI Copilot BOSS app.

lacie dji copilot product experience app screen

By using a hardwired connection, you can also browse and manage files from your mobile device without any cumbersome Wi-Fi setup. Create folders, view and delete images and videos, and even transfer files for offline viewing. This all works really well, and while the Copilot keeps your phone’s battery topped up, take note that its own battery won’t last forever. Don’t run it too low until you’re done backing up all of your files for the day.

In our testing, we copied 58 gigabytes of data from a UHS-II SD card in roughly 7 minutes, for an average write speed of about 138 megabytes per second (the card was rated at 200MBps). In that time, the battery dropped 8 percent, so you should be able to back up around 725GB on a single charge.

While 138MBps is about what we would expect for write speed — and is, in fact, faster than the 100MBps write speed of the Gnarbox — the Copilot slowed to a crawl when transferring data to a computer. Here, we averaged just 39MBps over USB 3.0, which isn’t great. LaCie does not specify the read and write speeds of the Copilot, but perhaps this is why. Compared to the 270MBps read speed of the Gnarbox, this is probably the Copilot’s biggest drawback.

Given that transferring files to a computer from the Copilot is considerably slower than transferring straight from an SD card (assuming you have a relatively new and fast card), our advice is to use the Copilot primarily as a redundant backup and keep all of your media on your memory cards whenever possible. Naturally, sometimes you just won’t be able to do this — and part of the appeal of a device like the Copilot is the ability to keep reusing your same memory cards — but just keep in mind that you may endure some long ingest times when you finally return from the field. Also, particularly for high-bitrate 4K content, editing straight from the Copilot may not be possible.

Is it worth it?

As with insurance, the most valuable aspect of the Copilot is the peace of mind it brings you. For content creators who spend days or weeks at a time without the safety net of the internet or the ability to power a computer, getting 2TB of ruggedized, on-the-go storage is a big deal. LaCie also throws in a one-month Adobe Creative Cloud All Apps plan, valued at $53.

But not everyone will need so much storage in the field, and the Copilot’s less-than-stellar export speed could be the deal breaker for such individuals. Here, the 256GB Gnarbox may be the better buy. As expected, some people have also raised concerns about the presumed risks of using a spinning disk, with all its sensitive moving parts, in rough field conditions. Rubber bumpers or not, nobody wants to risk dropping a hard drive. We encountered no issues, but beyond tossing it into a backpack, taking it on a hike, and letting it slide around the back of a car, we didn’t exactly try to push the limits. If consumers feel safer with solid state media — and if peace of mind is what they’re buying — they may choose to pay more for an SSD.

However, for those who need a high-capacity, portable backup system, SSDs may just be too costly. That said, with the much cheaper options from Wester Digital, the LaCie DJI Copilot may also be too costly. If you like the idea of its splash and dust-proof design, built-in screen, and hardwired phone cable, that could make it worth it, though. It is also easy to use, includes some practical connectivity features, and while it’s not exactly fast, it will get the job done.

Apple is preparing to launch a new family of devices under the “Star” codename, according to a report from 9to5Mac. The secret project apparently involves a line of lightweight Macs running ARM processors, which might combine the best bits of Apple’s laptops and mobile devices in one piece of hardware.

Treat this as speculative for now, even though rumors stretching back to last year have claimed Apple wants to get macOS and iOS merged together in some way. That’s an idea that Apple boss Tim Cook shot down in an interview last month.

Apparently Star prototypes have already been made and feature a touchscreen, a SIM card slot, GPS and a compass. They run the same basic firmware as current Mac devices, according to 9to5Mac’s sources, and that points to them being some kind of ultra-portable MacBook line of devices.

Reach for the Stars

At the same time, the new pieces of kit are also said to run a derivative of iOS, and are labelled as a different family to the iOS devices Apple currently makes – in the same way that the iPhone and the iPad are labelled as different families of devices.

That’s just about all the information we have, and even if this prototypes are real, there is of course no guarantee Apple is going to bring them to the masses. The company is no doubt experimenting with a variety of different ideas for upcoming hardware launches, with plenty of refreshes expected later this year.

What we do know is Apple has been pushing the iPad Pro as a laptop replacement for a while now, and seems to want to redefine what a computer is as we head towards the third decade of the 21st century. If the Star line-up does make it to market, expect to see launches by 2020.

There’s also room to save custom cook cycles in the app, and of course you can shut down the grill remotely. The Traeger app is also where you can download and apply updates to the Timberline should the need arise. During my time with the grill, the company pushed an update to add manual meat-probe calibration. Based on feedback from users (including myself), Traeger added the ability to adjust the meat probe if you felt it wasn’t accurate.

In my case, I noticed about a 12-degree difference between the built-in probe and the Weber iGrill Mini Bluetooth meat probe during my first few cooks. Once I applied the update, though — which took about five minutes — I didn’t have any issues. I was able to easily adjust the probe with the on-grill controls to compensate for the difference. Yes, it was an easy fix, but when you purchase a $1,700 grill, you kind of expect it to work perfectly out of the box. Still, it’s nice to see that Traeger took notice of a problem and acted to address customer complaints.

Aside from the meat-probe calibration, I didn’t encounter any other issues with the Timberline 850. I used it primarily as a smoker for chicken, pork shoulders and ribs, but I did crank up the temperature a few times to make sure it worked. Five hundred degrees is the max setting, but during those tests, the thermometer went as high as 505. That’s not really an issue; just pointing out that the Timberline is well equipped to hit 500 when you need a quick sear. I made some rookie mistakes on the chicken, but the multiple racks of ribs and pork shoulders I cooked during testing came out delicious. There’s a perfect amount of smoke flavor, and the meat was still moist and delicious.

At $1,700, the smaller Timberline is a serious investment, and the larger $2,000 option even more so. Traeger does offer more affordable options in a range of sizes and feature, starting at $450, but the Timberline 850 and Timberline 1300 are the only two that offer WiFi connectivity and all the extra tools it offers. You also have to consider that you’ll need to purchase bags of pellets, along with other supplies like gloves, aluminum foil and grill cleaner. As you might expect, Traeger recommends you use only its pellets, which come in a variety of options for $19 each (20-pound bag) — wood options like Hickory, Mesquite, Pecan, Oak, Apple and more. That’s usually more expensive than the same amount of charcoal, but it does save you from chopping or acquiring split wood if you want to go the all-wood route. During my test, one bag was enough to get me through about two cooks, but depending on temperature and cook time, your mileage may vary.

Other companies — like Pit Boss, Camp Chef and Green Mountain — make wood pellet grills, but their prices are comparable to Traeger’s smaller, non-WiFi-equipped models. Green Mountain also has WiFi, app-controlled models that range from $400 to $1,000, but the largest option offers less cooking surface than the Timberline 850. When you look at other top-level grills and smokers, Traeger isn’t asking too much for what it offers. I can certainly understand if you’d prefer to spend your money on a really nice gas grill or a Big Green Egg instead. If you’re looking to try your hand at low-and-slow methods, and like the convenience of wood pellets, Traeger has some of the best available options — even if you don’t bite on a high-end model.

Today’s Newest Deals

NES Classic in Stock at Amazon UK (Ships to the States)

Ignore the “will not ship to the US” blurb on the product page, because it does. They had the same message when the SNES Classic went up for preorder (again first in the UK), and I was able to successfully receive one. The NES Classic is powered by USB and all the games are already loaded into the unit itself so there is no “region locking” issue.

My recommendation? Preorder one. If you are able to successfully preorder another one in the United States, you can always cancel this order. If you have an Amazon US account, you don’t need to make a UK account.
