Lotto fever grips U.S. as Mega Millions jackpot hits $1 billion
The winner of such a prize would be worth more than Vera Bradley Inc and easily have enough money left over to buy a full set of the company's trademark paisley purses and luggage. Mega Millions tickets are sold in 44 U.S. states, the District of Columbia and the Virgin Islands. If more than one winner is picked, the jackpot would be divided proportionately, as happened when the previous Mega Millions record of $656 million was drawn in March 2012 and was shared by winners in Kansas, Illinois and Maryland, a lottery official said.

Google's most enthusiastic users have good reason to be wary
If you're reading this column, there's a decent chance you're among Google's most enthusiastic users — y'know, the type of person who's super-tuned in to the company's latest launches and is always eager to try out the exciting new app or service of the moment.

And if you are such an individual, there's also a decent chance you're feeling a bit dispirited and let down right about now. The truth is, I can't blame you. I feel that way myself.

I'm not talking about the usual "Holy moly, Google's watching my every move!" kind of concern. No — if you're a Google superuser, you're well aware of the company's business model and the options available to you in that regard. What I'm talking about is the pattern Google has established of drawing its most dedicated users into new services with lofty visions and grand promises — and then, once said users have thoroughly invested in adopting those services and integrating them into their lives, changing its tune and abandoning the efforts entirely.

A second bad driver — this one for audio — gets pushed out by Windows Update. Protect yourself!
Don't know about you, but I'm well beyond fed up with all of the pushed Windows bugs. If you installed your Patch Tuesday patches last week like a good little lemming, Microsoft may have put you in an inescapable loop of blue screens, or turned off your audio.

If either of those plagues hit you, there's a complex series of manual steps you can take to work around the problem, combined with two new patches that may help if you can get your PC to boot. That's assuming you haven't already bought a new machine, or taken the busted one in for repair.

First, the HP blue screens. I talked about the symptoms on Thursday: After installing the latest Win10 1803 or 1809 cumulative updates, HP machines sprouted WDF_VIOLATION blue screens. If you reboot, the BSOD comes back. Ends up that the BSODs weren't caused by the cumulative updates — at least not directly — but were, in fact, caused by a bad keyboard driver update that was pushed out the Windows Update chute at the same time as the cumulative updates.

Pixel 3 XL camera first look: Awesome features you need to see in action
If we had to pick one reason to pre-order the Pixel 3, it's the camera. Or rather, the camera app. Like always, Google has packed the Pixel 3 with tons of cool tricks to take advantage of the beefy Pixel Visual Core and its second-to-none AI- and ML-powered processing.

But this time around Google also has another camera to play with. It's not on the back, it's on the front, but it's not for portraits or stage lighting. It's a wide-angle lens for a feature Google calls Group Selfie Cam. There's a new slider at the bottom of the screen that lets you adjust the camera's field of view from 75 degrees to 97 degrees so you can fit more people without reaching for a selfie stick.
