Attendees of the first ever Fortnite Live festival were disappointed with the event complaining about long lines and lackluster attractions. The two-day festival, which took place at the Norfolk showground near Norwich, was advertised as "a celebration of the Fortnite game organised by fans for fans." Hundreds of people have demanded refunds after paying $15 to $20 for unlimited wristbands.

Parents were surprised to learn that the event only featured a few fairground attractions with limited space for children to participate.

5G E cellular data AT&T iPhone

iPhone owners with the latest iOS 12.2 beta have started noticing that in certain areas, the AT&T "LTE" logo has been replaced with "5G E". While this was previously launched by AT&T on non-Apple devices, it wasn't clear whether Apple devices would follow suit. The move has not been without its detractors, who claim that AT&T's 5G Evolution amounts to nothing but a marketing gimmick.
