How Wordle works
Wordle is a vocabulary game in which players get six tries to guess a five-letter word. Once you enter a guess, individual letters within the word you entered will appear in different colors. Each color has a different meaning.
Green: The letter entered is 100% correct — the right letter in the right space.
Yellow: The entered letter is in the correct word, but you’ve placed it in the wrong space.
Gray: The entered letter is not used in today’s Wordle answer, so it’s time to go back to the drawing board.
The goal is to guess the correct word in as few attempts as possible. If you don’t get the answer in six guesses, you lose.

Google has confirmed user reports of a pairing bug on the Pixel Buds A-Series earbuds.
The bug sees users being unable to switch to a second paired device.
The company will issue a firmware update next week that addresses the issue.
Google’s Pixel Buds A-Series are a pretty decent pair of budget true wireless earbuds, offering great Android integration and a reasonable price tag. Unfortunately, a pairing-related bug has popped up in recent days, but it turns out Google is aware of the issue.
Some Pixel Buds A-Series owners found that the earbuds refused to connect to a second, previously paired device as of the v3.519.0 firmware update. Fortunately, Google has now confirmed on its community forum that it’s aware of the bug and working on a fix that should roll out soon.
“We are aware of an issue with our latest firmware update for Pixel Buds A-Series (v3.519.0) that affected some users’ ability to connect Pixel Buds A-Series to a second device (e.g. moving the connection from your phone to your tablet),” the company explained.
It added that the fix would be pushed out to all users as part of an update on February 6. So if you haven’t updated your Pixel Buds A in a while, you might want to hold off on doing so until that date.
The buds don’t support Bluetooth multi-point for multiple simultaneous connections, but you’d expect that the basic ability to switch between multiple paired devices would work fine. We’re nevertheless glad to see Google addressing the issue.
Snapchat has more than 2 million paid subscribers on its Snapchat+ program, the company said during its latest earnings report. Snap noted that the paid plan, which costs $3.99 a month, is a part of “diversifying” its revenue pipelines.
The social network first launched Snapchat+ in June 2022 in countries like the US, Canada, the UK, France, Germany, Australia, New Zealand, and the United Arab Emirates. Later, it expanded the subscription service to India, Kuwait, Qatar, Oman, Bahrain, Egypt, Israel, Denmark Norway, and the Netherlands.
Snap was able to attract a million subscribers within 60 days of introducing Snapchat+. So comparatively it has taken more time for the company to reach to 2 million paid users.
Snapchat+ offers users features like the ability to pin someone as their #1 friend; priority in replies to Snap Star, the company’s program for popular creators; and see “the general direction of travel for where friends have moved recently” if they have turned on location sharing.

In the last quarter, the company introduces new things to the subscription such as custom notification sounds, story expiration controls, customizable chat wallpapers, and a plan gifting option.
According to data from analytics company Sensor Tower, Snap’s subscription was faring way better than the legacy Twitter Blue subscription. Till October end, consumers had spent a total of $6.4 million on the Twitter app. In comparison, Snap’s paid plan generated $28 million after its launch with many folks opting for the $39.99 annual plan. While the Elon Musk-led company has launched a new Twitter Blue plan that costs $8 per month, there are no estimates of how many people are actually paying for it.
Snap registered a revenue of $1.3 billion in Q4 2022, which was marginally higher than $1.298 billion for the same period in 2021. The company noted that its annual revenue jumped 12% from $4.1 billion to $4.6 billion. It also had a 17% bump in daily active users to get to the 375 million mark.
The company has been pushing actively to achieve revenue growth. Apart from the subscription plan, the social network has also tested a way for people to pay for Lenses. What’s more, a report from Business Insider published Tuesday indicated that Snap could also start charging people to restore their broken Snap streaks.
Keeping a 35-year old system like the MacIntosh SE and its successor, the SE/30, up and running requires the occasional replacement parts. As an all-in-one system, the analog board that provides the power for not only the system but also the 9″ (23 cm) built-in CRT is a common failure location, whether it is due to damaged traces, broken parts or worse. For this purpose [Kay Koba] designed a replacement analog board, providing it with a BOM of replacement components. This also includes the neck board, which is the part that the CRT itself connects to.
As [Kay] notes in the project log, the design was inspired after building [Kai Robinson]’s Classic Reloaded logic board, which we covered previously. After a few revisions, [Kay] has now begun selling the PCBs for $42. The product page also links to BOMs for both the analog board and the neck board, with most of the parts simple through-hole parts. If the board’s fancy styling and LEDs compared to the original board isn’t your cup of tea, it does look like there exists interest in a more subdued version as well.
Remember when movie adaptations of video games were universally terrible?
That’s a distant memory because, as a culture and a collective, we’ve seized upon a solution: TV shows. Ever since some bright spark decided to stop shoehorning 30-hour video games into a rigid three act structure, adaptations of classic video games have gone from strength to strength. Netflix, in particular, has had an incredible run, producing and streaming some truly incredible TV shows based on the video games we all love.
But, for now, here are some TV shows, based on video games, that you can watch right now.
I’ve waxed lyrical about Cyberpunk: Edgerunners before, and I’ll do it again.
This was my favourite anime of 2022, and maybe my favourite show period. Visually, there’s nothing quite like Cyberpunk: Edgerunners and narratively it’s as tight as a drum. The short, frenetic pace of the 20-minute episodes put you on a roller coaster almost immediately. You’ll finish this show without breathing, and start watching it all over again.
We’re barely halfway through the first season of The Last of Us, but it’s already a smash hit. Unopposed in the schedule, this perfectly made adaptation of the Naughty Dog classic is all anyone wants to talk about — and with good reason.
Not quite as schlocky as The Walking Dead, but more approachable than Station Eleven, The Last of Us is striking a delicate balance. It’s probably our favourite live action video game adaptation ever. Extremely good.
(I’m keeping this at number 2 for now. If it sticks the landing I might push it up.)
Arcane is loosely based on the lore of League of Legends, a competitive online multiplayer MOBA played obsessively by millions. It’s probably the last game you’d expect to see made into a TV show, but here we are.
Because Arcane doesn’t just exist — it rules. It was arguably the best show Netflix released in 2021. It has a gorgeous, completely unique aesthetic that elevates everything. It’s beautiful to look at, and the story also delivers in spades.
But yeah, a quick Trigger Warning: Imagine Dragons does feature heavily in the soundtrack. Don’t say I didn’t tell you.
Technically The Witcher is based on the series of novels, which eventually became a trilogy of critically acclaimed video games, but let’s be real here for a second: The TV show doesn’t happen if it wasn’t for the runaway success of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.
Regardless, for now, the show is excellent. We’ve got an interesting twist in the tale with Henry Cavill leaving the show and being replaced with Liam Hemsworth, but even if that falls apart, there are still a few quality seasons of The Witcher in the books. Give it a go!

I love Castlevania the video game, but at this point I feel like — in terms of cultural relevance — the Netflix TV show has completely eclipsed it.
It’s truly wild that a big budget TV show, based on a somewhat overlooked video game series can be such a huge hit, but that’s a testament to just how good Castlevania is. The best part — it continues to get better. We’re four seasons deep now, and there’s no dip in quality yet.
The Pokemon Company
It’s almost hard to consider Pokemon as a video game adaptation. After literally hundreds of episodes across dozens of TV series and movies, I think of the show as something separate to the games.
Regardless, given the cultural impact of the Pokemon show, I’d be crazy to leave it off this list. So here it is!
Alright, hollup. Let me cook.
Yes, I get it. This new TV version of Halo dramatically diverges from video game’s relatively straightforward story. Yes, Master Chief takes his helmet off and that’s upsetting. But come on man… Halo was never The Last of Us. It was never going to hold up to straight forward adaptation.
I think what we get, ultimately, is a fairly solid sci-fi action show that I quite enjoyed watching. This one was renewed for a second season on Paramount, so we’ll be seeing more Halo on our TV screens quite shortly.
Cuphead is a strange one. It’s a cartoon, based on a video game which is, in itself, a homage to cartoons made in the 1930s.
It doesn’t 100% work, but it’s a lot of fun, and beautiful to look at. Episodes are nice and short too.
