The Creator review: A visually stunning, yet deeply shallow, AI epic
Equal parts Terminator, The Golden Child and The Matrix prequel, The Creator is yet another sci-fi epic about a war between humans and AI, one told by someone who just can't shut up about their time backpacking across Asia. Director Gareth Edwards clearly understands the power of scale and spectacle, something he demonstrated with his indie knockout Monsters, as well as his big-budget efforts, Godzilla and Rogue One. But The Creator, like those films, also suffers from a disjointed narrative, weak characters and a surprisingly shallow exploration of its (potentially interesting!) themes. It's a shame — at times, the film also proves he can be a genuine visual poet. 

The Creator stars John David Washington, fresh off of Christopher Nolan's Tenet, as Joshua, an American soldier embedded among a group of AI rebels as a double-agent. When an operation goes wrong early on, he loses his rebel wife Maya (Gemma Chan) and the will to keep fighting the war between the anti-AI West and the AI-loving country of New Asia. (Yes, this is a film where the many people, cultures and languages throughout Asia are flattened into a single nation.)

Meta's metaverse is getting an AI makeover
Meta's Connect keynote felt different this year, and not just because it marked the return of an in-person event. It's been nearly two years since Mark Zuckerberg used Connect to announce that Facebook was changing its name to Meta and reorienting the entire company around the metaverse.

But at this year's event, it felt almost as if Zuckerberg was trying to avoid saying the word "metaverse." While he did utter the word a couple of times, he spent much more time talking up Meta's new AI features, many of which will be available on Instagram and Facebook and other non-metaverse apps. Horizon Worlds, the company's signature metaverse experience that was highlighted at last year's Connect, was barely mentioned.

That may not be particularly surprising if you've been following the company's metaverse journey lately. Meta has lost so much money on the metaverse, its own investors have questioned it. And Zuckerberg has been mercilessly mocked for trying to hype seemingly minor metaverse features like low-res graphics or avatars with legs.

AI, on the other hand, is much more exciting. The rise of large language models has fueled a huge amount of interest from investors and consumers alike. Services like OpenAI's ChatGPT, Snap's MyAI and Midjourney have made the technology accessible — and understandable— to millions.

Risk level 10: Critical security hole affects widespread software

The WebP image file format is particularly popular on the web because it offers a good balance between storage size and quality. But the vulnerability allows attackers to use a specially crafted WebP image to create a heap buffer overflow and execute malicious code. To do this, the image must be opened in an application; in browsers, simply calling up a website is sufficient. The code executed in the background can then install malware, for example.

Numerous known applications affected The vulnerability, which was discovered by Apple's Security Engineering and Architecture (SEAR) and the Citizen Lab at the University of Toronto's Munk School, was initially wrongly classified as a pure Chrome bug; common web browsers were quickly protected with a security update. But as it has now turned out, significantly more applications are also affected.

The vulnerability is related to the open Libwebp library, which is used by numerous programs. Thus, applications such as Gimp, Libreoffice, Telegram, 1Password and many others could also become targets of an attack. As a result, the CVSS, a standardized score for evaluating security vulnerabilities, has been

Google Podcasts, which is an actual thing, to shut down next year
The Google Podcasts app is heading to a farm upstate run by Marc Maron and Sarah Koenig, as the service is shuttering next year. The app has been around since 2018, but it never approached the kind of mass adoption enjoyed by rivals Overcast, Spotify and the recently-improved Apple Podcasts. In other words, don't feel bad if you've never heard of it.

The entire service is being folded into YouTube and its companion app YouTube Music. This is for good reason, as YouTube's already a popular destination for podcast fans. According to statistics provided by Edison Research and published by Variety, YouTube services 23 percent of podcast listeners in the US. Google Podcasts, on the other hand, accounts for just four percent of listeners, despite having podcasts right in the name. It's easier to pick up stakes and head to the where the fish are instead of trying to lure the fish to a random podcast app that nobody knows about.

YouTube announced that 2024 will see a significant increase in its "investment in the podcast experience," right after parent company Alphabet puts the kibosh on Google's dedicated app. It looks like YouTube Music will receive the lion's share of these investments, with forthcoming "robust creation and analytics tools" in addition to streamlined RSS uploads for podcasters.

The company promises to also expand the ability to listen to podcasts in more locations, stating they'll be available "everywhere YouTube Music listeners are already consuming th
