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.

    Apple is allowing Solo Loop returns without sending back the Watch

    Sponsored Links Engadget With the launch of the Watch Series 6 and Watch SE, Apple also introduced clasp-free stretch bands, the Solo Loop and Braided Solo Loop. However, sizing them proved to be tricky despite a printable price/size chart, so many buyers found themselves with an ill-fitting band. To make matters worse, Apple’s return policy meant that you had to send back the entire Watch to get the band replaced, a process that could have taken until November. Apple Apple has now addressed issues of fit and returns, according to MacRumors and several Twitter users. You can reportedly send back the band only and should be able to get the return processed in a matter of days. On top of that, Apple has released a new, more detailed sizing chart for the bands that makes it easier to pick the right size. To use it, you’ll need to print it, cut it out and wrap it around your wrist and the correct size among the nine available will appear between the green arrows, as shown above. They're also throwing in a free Sport Band, and profusely apologizing. The agent kept saying, "We messed up, it's on us," and said if I don't get a return label just keep the original braided band that came with my watch-What a complete turnaround compared to the response Monday. — Eli Hodapp (@hodapp) September 24, 2020 MacRumors said it was able to do a band swap yesterday without returning the Watch, which it couldn’t do the day before. GameClub exec Eli Hodapp had the same experience and tweeted that Apple Support even let him try an extra band to ensure he got the right size. Apple also “threw in a free Sport Band” and apologized for the error, “a complete turnaround compared to the response Monday,” he said.
