Pentagon Rethinks $10 Billion JEDI Contract That Amazon Believes Was Influenced by Trump

Pentagon Rethinks $10 Billion JEDI Contract That Amazon Believes Was Influenced by Trump

The U.S. Department of Defense has filed for permission to rethink some parts of the $10 billion JEDI cloud computing contract it awarded to Microsoft back in October. In other words, Amazon refuses to let this thing go if there’s even the slightest chance it can wrest this deal from Microsoft’s fingers.

A quick recap of this monthslong saga. The $10 billion JEDI contract was a meaty win for...

Here's What Dave Filoni Had to Say About Ahsoka Tano's Voice in The Rise of Skywalker

Here's What Dave Filoni Had to Say About Ahsoka Tano's Voice in The Rise of Skywalker

Just because Rey heard Ahsoka Tano’s voice mixed in with a bunch of dead Jedi in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, it doesn’t necessarily mean she’s dead. That’s the implication the character’s co-creator Dave Filoni gave io9 when we spoke to him this week.

To recap, right before Rey defeats Palpatine in The Rise of Skywalker, she reaches out with the Force and hears the voices of several...

A federal judge just put the brakes on a major military contract after Amazon argued it only lost out to rival Microsoft because the president wanted to “screw” CEO Jeff Bezos .

This injunction marks the latest development in the Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure (JEDI) project’s ongoing saga. The contract—an up to $10 billion purchase order to set up cloud computing services for the...

Amazon, Still Sore Over Lost $10 Billion JEDI Contract, Calls on Trump to Testify

The intentionally public feud between two powerful and deeply unlikeable men continues—this time over a lucrative government contract which was awarded to Amazon rival Microsoft in October . Who will win, and can it please be neither of them?

The contract in question, Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure (JEDI), is more or less a Defense Department purchase order for $10 billion worth of...

The Jedi That Fucked

The Jedi That Fucked

The Jedi Order has long been an establishment of hypocrisy . It’s what led to its undoing across generations of its existence multiple times. Its hubris is what brings about the fall of Anakin Skywalker and its destruction in the Star Wars movies . One such hypocrisy? Those infamously loveless warrior monks sure did have a lot of sex.

The conflicting ideas of the Jedi Order’s establishment of...

Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order es como protagonizar tu propia película de Star Wars

Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order es como protagonizar tu propia película de Star Wars

Ha pasado mucho tiempo sin un juego nuevo de Star Wars centrado por completo en una campaña single player. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order es el juego que muchos esperaban, y mi pregunta antes de comenzar a jugarlo era: ¿estará a la altura de la franquicia? Tras muchos combates con sable láser, he hallado la respuesta.

Así ha sido la evolución de los Stormtroopers en 40 años de películas de...

Amazon Cites 'Unmistakable Bias' in Challenge to Pentagon's $10 Billion JEDI Contract Decision

Amazon Cites 'Unmistakable Bias' in Challenge to Pentagon's $10 Billion JEDI Contract Decision

We all knew Amazon wouldn’t take losing the Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure contract lying down. Now—just weeks after the government awarded the $10 billion project to Microsoft —the company’s taking the first step to push back against what it calls “unmistakable bias” in the Pentagon’s decision process.

The tech giant has filed a notice to protest under seal with the U.S. Court of...

Leia, no Luke, iba a ser “la última Jedi” en Star Wars (y hasta tenía sable de luz)

Leia, no Luke, iba a ser “la última Jedi” en Star Wars (y hasta tenía sable de luz)

Cuando Lucasfilm anunció el título de la octava entrega de Star Wars, The Last Jedi, todos nos preguntamos: ¿quién es el último Jedi? Muchos pensaron que sería Luke, otros que sería Rey, como la nueva sucesora de la orden, pero en realidad, iba a ser Leia Organa, según comentó el hermano de Carrie Fisher.

Esto es lo pasó en realidad durante el famoso abrazo entre Carrie Fisher y Daisy Ridley...

The Game of Thrones Showrunners' Canceled Star Wars Movies May Have Explored the Origins of the Jedi

The Game of Thrones Showrunners' Canceled Star Wars Movies May Have Explored the Origins of the Jedi

Star Wars fans know how the Jedi fell (damn you, Order 66 ) and soon may see some kind of resurrection (hello, Rey! ). But where did they come from in the first place? We almost found out and now, may never know.

Earlier this week , news broke that Game of Thrones co-creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, who’d been in line to write the next live-action Star Wars movie, were leaving those...

'Jedi' Just Got a Dictionary Definition, Which Feels Weird, Given Everything Happening in Star Wars Right Now

'Jedi' Just Got a Dictionary Definition, Which Feels Weird, Given Everything Happening in Star Wars Right Now

At a time when the Star Wars movies and tie-in materials are now more than ever questioning the legacy of the Jedi—and what it means to be a Jedi —there is a certain irony to there now being a literal dictionary definition of what a Jedi is.

Language is a fluid thing, and popular culture’s impact upon it is indelible. Just look at how many words Shakespeare gave to English through his...

So, What Can a Force Ghost Do?

So, What Can a Force Ghost Do?

In the mythos of Star Wars’ cosmic energies, the ability to exist after death as a Force Ghost is one of the most rare and powerful abilities a wielder of the Force can master. Or rather, attempt to master. Because if anything, despite its importance to the Star Wars saga at large, what we think we know about Force Ghosts is not all that much.

With The Rise of Skywalker months away, it stands...

Oracle Document Claiming an Amazon 'Conspiracy' to Win Military Contract Makes It to Trump's Desk

Aides to Donald Trump presented him with a document identical to one created by a top Washington lobbyist for cloud-computing giant Oracle, Kenneth Glueck, implying that competitor Amazon is only a favored contender for a major contract with the U.S. military due to a far-ranging “conspiracy” orchestrated by Jeff Bezos, CNN reported on Saturday.

According to CNN, the one-page document is the...
