How to Visit Joe Biden’s Island in ‘Animal Crossing: New Horizons’

Published

on

The 2020 presidential election was bound to be a weird one, and not only because COVID-19 has made in-person events like rallies and door-to-door canvassing more fraught than ever. Thankfully, there’s always Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

Players have been able to show their in-game support for candidates using digital campaign signs, and now players can visit Joe Biden’s official Animal Crossing island by using the Dream Code DA-7286-5710-7478. The charming town is filled with neat photo ops, including a villager version of Joe Biden and links to volunteer opportunities if you’re interested.

Screenwriter Gary Whitta and Greg Miller of Kinda Funny Games were the first Animal Crossing players to visit the official island of the Joe Biden campaign. They unveiled on Kinda Funny’s Twitch channel earlier today as part of Whitta’s popular “Animal Talking” web series where he chats with celebrities, game developers, and other popular figures while playing Animal Crossing.

For those unfamiliar, Animal Crossing: New Horizons is a popular video game on the Nintendo Switch, and one of the few bright spots in this murky span of time otherwise known as 2020. The relaxing town management sim lets players create their own personalized island populated with likable animal townsfolk.

The game released back in March 2020, but is already the second best-selling game on the system, having moved almost 23 million copies. It’s also the second best-selling game of all time in Japan. It has a massive following from players of all ages and backgrounds—including U.S. Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. AOC even guested on Whitta’s “Animal Talking” show after she made headlines by visiting other players in the game—including Lifehacker’s own Senior Technology Editor, David Murphy.

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.
