New Lord Of The Rings And The Hobbit 4K Gift Set Contains Extended And Theatrical Trilogy

October is barely underway, but the holiday season is well within view: Amazon has nonchalantly posted–and later removed–a new listing for a Lord of the Rings gift set of the full Peter Jackson trilogy in 4K UHD and digital available for $140. The set is currently up for pre-order but does not yet have a release date. There was also a standard 4K set available for $90. Both sets contain both the extended and theatrical cuts of The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers, and The Return of the King.

The links are gone now, but they may reappear on Amazon Prime Day, which takes place on October 13. Sean Astin, who played Samwise Gamgee in LOTR announced the release of the three films along with all The Hobbit movies in a recent video.

As is usually the case with Amazon pre-orders, if you’re at all interested it would

The secret behind wedding rings of Meghan Markle, Queen Elizabeth and Kate Middleton have been revealed and according to a report these were made of Welsh gold.

For nearly 200 years, British royal family has chosen Welsh gold, the rarest and most expensive type of precious yellow metal in the world, for wedding and engagement rings.

Amazon picking up its Lord of the Rings series was as transparent a grab as one could imagine for the vacuum left by the wildly successful Game of Thrones.

But Tolkien fans are up in arms following rumours that the billion-dollar show could be rather raunchier than the source material.

Tolkien site TheOneRing has picked up on a number of casting call and crew-member additions to the series, which, like Peter Jackson’s LOTR movies, is being filmed in New Zealand.

Apple’s smart rings could recharge in an AirPods-style case

A future control system for Apple devices like Apple Glass could consist of finger-mounted “smart rings” with research suggesting that charging the peripherals could be accomplished with an enclosure similar to the AirPods charging case attached to a VR headset.

When devising the future of computer-human interactions, companies have many things they have to consider, ranging from the form factor to how each interaction fundamentally works, to the design and the perception of the user to others as they use it. One key area is power, one that is especially useful for wire-free hardware.

While there have been attempts to use smart rings on fingers as a way for a user to control a computer, they have typically taken the form of an actual ring, usually as a fairly large and clunky piece of hardware. Slimming down the size of the ring may make it more appealing to
