Google Stadia is just for early adopters now, but it has so much promise
Hey Google, here's some free marketing advice: Stadia is an early access product. The fact that I'm dispensing this advice in a review is proof that mistakes have already been made. The streaming service that Google's been pitching since March — think Netflix, but for games — is meant to go toe-to-toe with the PlayStations and Xboxes of the world, but on the eve of its Nov. 19 launch, it's simply not ready. That's fine! Early access isn't a dirty idea. It's a descriptive term that, in just two words, tells consumers everything they need to know: this product isn't quite finished, but it's good enough to be something you can purchase as an early adopter. Even at launch, Stadia does the key thing it needs to do: it works. Read more...More about Google, Stadia, Entertainment, Gaming, and Streaming Services

How the Falcons can still upend the NFC playoff race
Photo by Grant Halverson/Getty Images The 3-7 Falcons have upset two teams in a row, and they could shake things up in the NFC playoff race. The Atlanta Falcons’ 2019 season isn’t exactly going as expected. Their firepower on offense paired with a ton of talent on defense had them as a potential sleeper Super Bowl pick heading into the year. But we’re more than halfway through the NFL season, and the Falcons are just 3-7. The good news though is that they’ve found some rhythm and are now officially playing the role of spoiler in the NFL. In the last two weeks, the Falcons have upset the Saints and the Panthers to disrupt the NFC South race. That turnaround is a surprise, given that just a few weeks ago head coach Dan Quinn was expected to be fired at the end of the year, if not before. While he still might be headed for the unemployment line, the Falcons are finally looking like the team we thought’d they be all season. So what’s changed? Atlanta’s defense has majorly stepped it up the last couple of weeks. The biggest difference is the defense has been getting after the quarterback a lot better than it was earlier in the season. Before Week 10, the Falcons only had seven sacks all season. Then, they sacked Drew Brees six times, with Grady Jarrett recording 2.5 of them. That continued in Week 11 against the Panthers as the Atlanta got to Kyle Allen five times. Adrian Clayborn had two of those, while Takkarist McKinley registered his first full sack of the season. Sunday was also a turning point for another problem that had been plaguing the Falcons’ defense: its inability to create turnovers. Coming into the week, the defense had forced an NFL-low four turnovers. Against the Panthers, it picked off Allen four times. In the last two games, Atlanta’s defense hasn’t allowed a touchdown either — only the fifth time in franchise history it’s done so. The defense was giving up an average of 31 points per game before then and has averaged 6 points per game in back-to-back wins. The Falcons also outscored the Saints and Panthers by a combined score of 55-12. Part of the defensive improvement might be the coaching changes Quinn has made. After the team’s bye week on Nov. 3, the Falcons announced that Raheem Morris, who was coaching the receivers, would move over to work with the defensive backs. The switch made sense, considering Morris has spent many years of his career coaching secondaries. Then news broke that Quinn, who was calling the defensive himself, delegated the defensive playcalling to Jeff Ulbrich and Morris. In the last two weeks, those moves seem to have paid off; the defense looks like a completely different unit. However, cornerback Isaiah Oliver insists things are just working better for the defense later in the season. “Defensively, we have the same players on the field, we’re calling the same calls we have been calling, running the same defense — it’s just working better, honestly,” Oliver told reporters after the Panthers win. “Guys are communicating more and getting to the ball quicker. But in terms of the schemes, everything is the same.” Meanwhile, Matt Ryan and the Falcons’ offense have been productive recently, too. Ryan has thrown for 493 yards and three touchdowns over the last two weeks, and receivers Calvin Ridley and Julio Jones are each averaging around 85 yards per game in that time span. The one area that could use some improvement is in the Falcons’ running game. While it has had to deal with injuries to running backs Devonta Freeman and Ito Smith, the Falcons have just four rushing touchdowns all season, and they’re averaging just 3.6 yards per play on the ground. The Falcons are a long shot to make the playoffs, but they can be a spoiler. The Falcons have three home games against the Bucs, Saints, and Panthers before traveling to San Francisco to play the 49ers on Dec. 15. Atlanta then ends its schedule with a home game against Jacksonville and a game on the road against the Bucs. The Panthers, Saints, and especially 49ers losing to the Falcons could shake up the playoff seedings, both in the NFC and wild card standings. Here’s a look at the current NFC playoff seedings: 49ers (9-1) Packers (8-2) Saints (8-2) Cowboys (6-4) Seahawks (8-2) Vikings (8-3) In the hunt: Rams (6-4), Eagles (5-5), Panthers (5-5), Bears (4-6), Lions (3-6-1), Cardinals (3-7-1), Falcons (3-7) The conference as a whole is a lot more top-heavy than in previous years, too: NFC teams with 8+ wins thru Week 112019 - 52018 - 22017 - 32016 - 12015 - 22014 - 12013 - 22012 - 12011 - 22010 - 12009 - 22008 - 22007 - 22006 - 12005 - 12004 - 22003 - 12002 - 2It's never been like this at the top in this era.— Scott Kacsmar (@ScottKacsmar) November 18, 2019 The Falcons have eight teams in front of them in the wild card race, so them making the postseason doesn’t look too likely, but it’s not impossible. Their best bet would be to win the division, which doesn’t look all that easier either. Here’s a look at the current NFC South standings: Saints (8-2) Panthers (5-5) Falcons (3-7) Tampa Bay (3-7) Still, they can try to ruin things for their rivals, whether that’s keeping the Saints from a first-round bye or keeping the Panthers out of the playoffs altogether. The one downside to Atlanta winning is it moves the team further down the draft board. The Falcons are still in contention for a top-10 pick, at least right now. But even if they win two more games, they’re likely to miss out on a can’t-miss prospect like Ohio State defensive end Chase Young. That’s not on the players’ mind, though. The consecutive wins have the Falcons feeling good. Cornerback Desmond Trufant talked after the game about keeping the momentum going: ✌️ division wins and we're not done yet.— Atlanta Falcons (@AtlantaFalcons) November 17, 2019 This season obviously hasn’t been ideal for the Falcons, but beating their remaining NFC South opponents — most importantly, the Saints and Panthers again — would be a decent end to a disappointing year. Even if they don’t make the playoffs, playing spoiler wouldn’t be a bad alternative.

While both Microsoft and Sony are waiting until next year to release their next generation of game consoles, Google is beating them to the fight.

The GOP's defenses in the Trump impeachment inquiry are about to blow up in spectacular fashion this week
Reuters Republican lawmakers have trotted out a series of floundering defenses of President Donald Trump in the wake of evidence of his efforts to pressure Ukraine to launch politically motivated investigations.  This week, those defenses are going to blow up in spectacular fashion.

They are expected to give firsthand accounts of his attempts to strongarm Ukraine to deliver political dirt on his rival ahead of the 2020 election. Their testimony will throw a wrench into the Republican Party's key talking points as they struggle to defend Trump in the wake of a rapidly expanding scandal.

The Ravens didn't interview Lamar Jackson before the draft because they didn't want rumors to spread about how badly they wanted him
Gary Landers/AP The Baltimore Ravens traded up for the 32nd pick to take Lamar Jackson in the 2018 NFL draft. According to Peter King of NBC Sports, the Ravens feigned disinterest in Jackson before the draft, choosing not to interview him so there wouldn't be any rumors connecting them to Jackson.

Jack Ma, Jedi, and surfing: These are the 10 juiciest details from Fast Company's deep dive into WeWork
Jackal Pan/Getty Images; Jacqueline Larma/AP Images; Samantha Lee/Business Insider Fast Company published a deep dive into the relationship between WeWork cofounder and former CEO Adam Neumann and SoftBank CEO Masayoshi Son, the coworking startup's biggest backer. Son compared Neumann to Alibaba's founder Jack Ma and likened WeWork to Amazon to justify its astronomical valuation, Fast Company reported. The magazine story also includes Neumann's comments on subjects such as Saudi's crown prince, and details about how he likes to surf. Scroll down for the 10 best bits from the Fast Company story. For more stories on WeWork, click here. 1. "The last person I felt this with was Jack Ma" Shu Zhang/Reuters SoftBank CEO Masayoshi Son reportedly told WeWork's cofounder and former boss Adam Neumann that he reminded him of Alibaba's founder, the driving force behind Son's most successful investment ever. "The last person I felt this with was Jack Ma," Neumann recalled Son saying to him before WeWork's IPO collapsed, Neumann was pushed out, and SoftBank bailed out his startup. Son was so impressed by Neumann that he drew up the terms of a $4.4 billion investment on an iPad in the back of his car, and he and Neumann signed at the bottom, Neumann told Fast Company. "When Masa chose to invest in me for the first time, he only met me for 28 minutes. Okay?" Neumann told the magazine. Read more about this story here. 2. "Masa is a Jedi" YouTube/Star Wars Clips Neumann reportedly compared WeWork to Amazon to make its astronomical valuation look cheap by comparison.

"Masa is a Jedi," Neumann told the magazine, referring to SoftBank's Son and the Amazon narrative he pushed for WeWork. "He has a lot of superpowers." Read more about this story here. 3. "Adam's only boss is Rebekah" DAVID X PRUTTING/Patrick McMullan via Getty Images Neumann's wife, Rebekah, played an integral role in drafting WeWork's IPO prospectus, according to Fast Company.

Review: Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order
"I have had it with these motherfucking Sith on this motherfucking train!" --GPS1138, Video Game Enthusiast Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order is the best Star Wars game I've played since Knights of the Old Republic, which is one of the best video games of all time. I did not want to buy Fallen Order. I figured that much like all the other bullshit EA opportunities to rake in cash from Star Wars fans, this game would probably suck. The trailers tempted me but the game's protagonist was yet another whiny appearing young white male with resting Sith face. Day one and two reviews were so strong, I found myself watching others play on Twitch and quickly realized I wanted to play through this adventure myself. I bought the game. Meet Cal Kestis, a young man who was formerly a Jedi Padawan. Having survived Order 66, Cal starts the game with all the cringe-inducing drama and angst of a Star Wars Jedi trainee. Cal is trying to keep his force powers hidden but must use them to save a pal, thus ensuring the Inquisitors immediately arrive and he must run. BD-1 rapidly becomes Cal's droid pal and is the most useful and fun droid in a Star Wars game yet. I feel obligated to say BD BD BD often.

How long a cold should last — and when you should see a doctor
Getty/ BSIP / Contributor The common cold lasts from 7 to 10 days for a healthy adult. The common cold usually isn't serious enough to warrant a doctor's visit. You should see a doctor if your symptoms get worse or change to something more severe after 10 days.  This article was reviewed by Rod Oskouian, MD, at the Swedish Neuroscience Institute. There are more than 200 viruses that can cause the cold. That might help explain why many adults contract two to three colds each year, mostly by coming into contact with someone who's already infected. Whether you inhaled infectious particles from someone's sneeze or you didn't wash your hands after touching an infected surface, when you catch a cold you're facing at least a week of misery. See the rest of the story at Business InsiderNOW WATCH: Behind the scenes with Shepard Smith — the Fox News star who just announced his resignation from the networkSee Also:You're most contagious with the cold virus in the first three days of infectionVitamin C for the common cold is a myth, sort ofYes, you can still get the flu after a flu shot
