Only Those Worthy Can Win This Thor: Love And Thunder Xbox Series X

Microsoft, the company that brought us furry Sonic controllers and a Far Cry 6 console that resembled a bomb, has unveiled its latest kooky Xbox Series X sweepstakes, and it may be the coolest/dumbest one yet. Hot on the heels of the premier of Thor: Love and Thunder on July 8, the company is giving away a custom Series X modeled after Thor’s trusty hammer, Mjölnir. That means the console looks like a big, cracked slab of dwarven-crafted uru that still channels electricity and may or may not be liftable depending on if you’re worthy. It's hard to tell if that handle is real or simply edited into the photo for full effect, but you should probably assume the worst (best?) when considering making space for this thing.  The contest begins today and concludes on July 21. To enter, you just need to follow the Xbox Twitter account and retweet #ThorLoveandThunderXboxSweepstakes. You can read the full contest rules here.

    YouTube is sharing more ‘authoritative’ election info with voters

    Sponsored Links YouTube YouTube already has a few election protection measures in place, like removing videos that encourage election meddling and banning claims that could mislead voters. Today, YouTube announced that it’s paying special attention to mail-in voting content and stepping up its efforts to fight misinformation with “authoritative information.” Under videos that mention voting by mail, you’ll now see an information panel that directs you to authoritative info from the Bipartisan Policy Center think tank. YouTube is also adding more information panels, which will appear when you search for 2020 presidential or federal Congressional candidates, and it has created new panels on voter registration and how to vote. Those are available in English and Spanish. Other Big Tech and social media companies are also rolling out election initiatives. Facebook is running a national ad campaign to encourage voting and is pointing people towards its Voting Information Centers on Facebook and Instagram. Twitter is making its “biggest push ever” to encourage voter registration, and Snapchat has added voting resources to boost voter turnout.
