As you might have noticed, there are no standard weekly Fortnite: Battle Royale challenges this week and that's because the 10 weeks that made up season 7 are already over. Instead, Epic pushed the start date for season 8 up to Feb. 28, letting you enter pop-up tournaments and several other activities. Thankfully, this means you have extra time to catch up on season 7 challenges (read our guide). But Epic also added a new set of quests called Overtime challenges. There are 16 free Overtime challenges that will slowly unlock over the next eight days. Five are available now, with three more unlocking on Saturday, four more on Tuesday and the remaining four next Friday. The best part is that if you complete 13 of the 16 total Overtime challenges over the next two weeks, you'll be rewarded with a free season 8 Battle Pass. That's like getting $10 just for playing Fortnite, which seems like a pretty great deal to me. With the extra time to catch up, season 7 Battle Pass owners who … [Read more...] about Fortnite: How to complete overtime challenges to get a free Battle Pass

Everyday it seems like there are rumors and leaks about another company working on a foldable phone. Xiaomi, Huawei, LG, Lenovo, Motorola all are rumored to have a bendable or foldable phone in the works. On Thursday, Apple updated a patent that showed drawings of a foldable clamshell phone. This is a continuation of a patent filed in 2011 for an iPhone with a flexible display.What makes this new patent particularly interesting is the timing. On Wednesday, Samsung is expected to show off more of its folding Galaxy X phone.The patent shows a phone that folds up in half. It's a similar approach Motorola has in a patent for a new Razr phone to make the phone more pocketable when not in use. Samsung and Xiaomi's approaches seem more about transforming a phone into a mini-tablet.Of particular interest in the patent are the various ways Apple shows incorporated hinges and housing around a flexible OLED display to make it bend.

Will Colton Underwood lose his virginity on The Bachelor? (In case you missed it because no one ever, ever mentions it on the show, this season's lead is a VIRGIN.) The far more pressing question about Colton's future, however, is when he'll jump the fence. A promo for season 23 shows the former football linebacker stomping toward a fence in the dark and declaring "I'm f-cking done," before hopping over it with the ease of someone who's definitely not a fence-jumping virgin. Dramatic music plays, the women contestants scream and host Chris Harrison drops a "holy s**t," looking into the camera with what looks to be a knowing Chris Harrison smirk. Could this actually be the "most dramatic season ever" ABC has promised so many times? It's the kind of moment reality TV was born for, one that's given viewers of the long-running dating show something to look forward to in an otherwise hum-drum season largely characterized by make-out sessions -- and a requisite … [Read more...] about Bachelor Colton Underwood’s fence hop has Twitter feeling so jumpy
It seems like today everyone is trying to hop on the video-streaming-service bandwagon. Disney, NBCUniversal, AT&T and Apple are all making their way into the paid streaming game, and they're surely not the last. These hugely successful corporations want to stake their claims in this already crowded entertainment sector. Disney's service, Disney+ is set to unveil this year and will take advantage of its overarching ownership of many franchises, such as Star Wars, Marvel and the Pixar movies. AT&T's service well presumably use everything under the Warner umbrella. NBCUniversal's will include original content as well as licensed titles. Apple's service is a bit of a mystery as to what will be included with its streaming service, but a company of that size is sure to be competitive. These are just the ones yet to debut. Think about how many are already available. When does it end? Netflix, Amazon Video, Hulu, CBS All Access (Disclosure: CBS is CNET's parent … [Read more...] about CNET Asks: Are there too many video-streaming services?
