TL;DR: A lifetime subscription to SheetMagic is on sale for £39.82, saving you 83% on list price. ChatGPT is useful, but you can still only enter one query at a time. Even if you're quick and the results don't need revision, it can still be tedious to enter each prompt individually, wait for the answer, revise, and repeat. That is unless you do it all in bulk from the comfort of your favourite spreadsheet app. Now you can combine ChatGPT with Google Sheets for quick, simple mass content creation, whether answering a question or generating a headline.
By all appearances, Foe is a beautiful movie. Beautiful people -- Saoirse Ronan, Paul Mescal, and Aaron Pierre -- explore beautiful landscapes, talking about beautiful human emotions like love and loss. There is indeed some attempt at substance here, but it's buried under layers of nonsensical storytelling and clumsy dialogue. Not even its prestigious stars can sell it. Ronan and Mescal play Hen and Junior, a married couple living through the climate crisis. The year is 2065, and water and habitable land are scarce.
Adventure awaits in even the most mundane of tasks in Riddle of Fire. The enchanting feature debut from writer/director Weston Razooli celebrates childlike wonder by turning a series of familiar chores into a magical romp through moonlit forests and villains' lairs. With its nostalgic quality and plucky children protagonists, Riddle of Fire feels right at home alongside classic kids' adventure films like The Goonies. However, its dreaminess still sets it apart from its predecessors, making for a fiercely original fantasy tale. You can't have a fantasy adventure without a group of heroes, and in Riddle of Fire, our heroes take the form of scrappy kids: brothers Hazel (Charlie Stover) and Jodie (Skyler Peters) and their friend Alice (Phoebe Ferro). They call themselves the Three Immortal Reptiles, and they ride around their hometown of Ribbon, Wyoming, on mini motorcycles, wielding their paintball guns against anyone who stands in their way.

The Quest 3 doesn't come out for a couple of weeks, but Meta is already announcing some promising updates for prospective buyers Per UploadVR, the Quest 3 (which launches on Oct. 10) will get an update in December that delivers upper body tracking and "AI-estimated legs." The headset has some side cameras that aim down, allowing them to track your torso and other appendages for more immersive, realistic body movements in simulated environments. Before the update, Quest 3 (and pretty much all other VR hardware) could only accurately track head and hand movements. Leg-wise, things are a bit more interesting. Quest 3 will use AI to make educated guesses about where your legs are and will try to incorporate them into gameplay.
It's no secret that Meta has a vision for generative AI coming to all of its platforms -- Instagram, WhatsApp, and Facebook -- in every way possible. But generative AI isn't trained on nothing. According to a report from Reuters, Meta AI, the social media tech giant's new assistant, will be trained on your public Facebook and Instagram posts. At Meta Connect 2023, CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced new AI features for image generation, AI-generated celebrities, and a personal assistant. The personal assistant will, ideally, provide users information they need (think ChatGPT) and also perform tasks across its products and services, including WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger and Instagram.
Websites can now choose to opt out of Google Bard or any other future AI models that Google makes. Google made the announcement on Thursday introducing a new tool called Google-Extended that will allow sites to be indexed by crawlers (or a bot creating entries for search engines), while simultaneously not having their data accessed to train future AI models. For website administrators, this will be an easy fix, available through robots.txt In a statement, the company's VP of Trust Danielle Romain said that Google has learned from web publishers "that they want greater choice and control over how their content is used for emerging generative AI use cases." "By using Google-Extended to control access to content on a site, a website administrator can choose whether to help these AI models become more accurate and capable over time," Romain added.

Apple's former VP of Industrial Design Jony Ive is working with ChatGPT maker OpenAI to make something vaguely described as the "iPhone of artificial intelligence," according to reports from The Information and Financial Times. They reportedly received $1 billion in funding from Softbank CEO Masayoshi Son, so this is a serious project, but it's still in the early stages of planning. The alleged concept behind this venture is give users a more natural and intuitive way of interacting with AI than what is currently available. Using ChatGPT on a laptop or an iPhone is perfectly fine, but that's not what those devices were explicitly designed to do. Ive's new project would theoretically involve hardware deeply entrenched with AI.
