100 Thieves is turning its LA headquarters into a voting center

Published

on

100 Thieves is following in the footsteps of the NBA and turning its home base into a voting center. The gaming and lifestyle company announced today that the 100 Thieves Cash App Compound — a 15,000-square-foot building that officially opened earlier this year — will serve as an official LA County Voting Center, which will be open for early voters from October 30th to November 2nd, as well as on Election Day on November 3rd.

The company also partnered with graffiti artist Slick to create a temporary mural on the building; right now, it says “vote,” but it will be changed to say “we voted” on November 2nd. The voting process will also follow standard safety guidelines, as voters will have to wear face coverings and gloves while practicing social distancing. (For those in the area, the compound is located at 6050 Jefferson Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90016.)

“Ever since we put down roots in this pocket of Los Angeles with the opening of the 100 Thieves Cash App Compound at the beginning of the year, we’ve been looking for ways to give back to the community,” 100 Thieves founder Matthew “Nadeshot” Haag said in a statement. “We’re thankful to the Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder / County Clerk for the work they are doing this election season, and we’re excited to partner with them to offer up our space.”

100 Thieves is best known for its professional teams in games like League of Legends, Fortnite, and Valorant, along with signing big-name creators like Jack “CouRage” Dunlop and Rachel “Valkyrae” Hofstetter. It also has a burgeoning apparel business.

The news is the latest in an ongoing confluence between games and politics. Just this week, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) hosted one of the biggest Twitch streams ever while playing Among Us and encouraging viewers to vote, while last week, the Biden campaign launched an official (virtual) headquarters in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

Apple will replace AirPods Pro for free with faulty noise cancellation, static or crackling

Published

on

Today, exactly one year after Apple first launched the AirPods Pro — and thus the same day the very first AirPods Pro owners will see their one-year warranties expire — Apple has launched a repair program that offers free repairs or replacements for another whole year if your AirPods Pro experience issues with noise cancellation or static.

Specifically, Apple will fix:

Crackling or static sounds that increase in loud environments, with exercise or while talking on the phone

Active Noise Cancellation not working as expected, such as a loss of bass sound, or an increase in background sounds, such as street or airplane noise

Apple says only a “small percentage of AirPods Pro” are affected by the issues, but it apparently wasn’t just an early batch — Apple says affected units were manufactured “before October 2020,” meaning every AirPods Pro ever made might be eligible. That’s quite a recall if so. Apple says it will repair faulty AirPods Pro for two years after you first buy them.

We’ve heard complaints about degraded noise cancellation before, and at least one Verge editor has replaced their AirPods Pro under warranty. It’s nice to hear that Apple isn’t just cutting buyers off as soon as that warranty expires.
