Halloween is going to look a little different this year, thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic. If you have kids, you’ve probably already put a decent amount of thought into how to be able to give them some type of Halloween experience, whether that’s through creative use of face masks, candy chutes or DIY decorations.

But what about yourself? If you work in a place that embraces Halloween, like Dunder Mifflin, wearing costumes to work from home isn’t the same. And a Halloween Zoom happy hour isn’t quite the same thing as getting buzzed with your colleagues and then eating an entire bag of candy corn to try to figure out whether or not you like it.

Allow us to present another option: adding a creepy Zoom background for your meetings this week. Not only will it hide the mess in your home office (aka the corner of a kitchen counter), but it’ll get your colleagues in the Halloween spirit. Here’s what to do.

How to download free Halloween Zoom backgrounds

Sure, you can go the traditional route and find a spooky photo and make it your Zoom background. Or, you could download a Halloween Zoom background from the video platform Clipchamp and use that instead. And did we mention these backgrounds were videos? They are available to download for free on the Clipchamp website.

The options include the usual: bloody hands, old-timey damaged baby dolls, a hand reaching out from the ground in a graveyard, a TV with static, an abandoned psychiatric hospital, a single light bulb swinging in a room, a few different shots of the moon, a person pressed up against the outside of a window, and a ghost town. And if you’ve never set up a video as a Zoom background before, Clipchamp provides this handy step-by-step guide.

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.
