So how much more powerful does this make the PS4 versus the Xbox One now?
Sony did not release any official announcement about this, and the SDK itself is under NDA, so we should consider this as rumor, and take it with the traditional pinch of salt until an announcement is made. That said, it’s certainly promising.
Alien: Covenant and the following two films will be origin stories, answering the "very basic questions posed in Alien: why the alien, who might have made it and where did it come from?" Scott revealed at a press conference in Sydney where he is starting pre-production on Covenant, the first sequel to Prometheus.
Prior to his implementation of a streamlined operation to help ship code faster, there was roughly a one-to-one relationship between developers and those who test the code for stability and bugs. After the layoffs, which gutted a significant portion of the employees who were in the testing group, management pushed down the idea that developers should be fully responsible for their own code. This, in itself, is not a crazy idea, but the transition to this methodology is starting to show its weakness in the products that Microsoft has been shipping since the release of Windows 10.
The World Robot Conference in Beijing was reportedly taken by storm this week when the latest iteration of Geminoid F an almost terrifyingly-realistic robot woman made an appearance during the show. Known to many as "the world's sexiest robot," the rubber-skinned android can speak, sing, and even act according to China's state-run news service.
As the alternative to paying a hefty fine, this guy was asked to make an anti-piracy PSA video that got 200K views. So far, he's at over 750K.
the BSA say that the 30-year-old’s fate lies with how popular the video becomes. Unless the video gets 200,000 views on YouTube, there’s a suggestion that a huge fine will become payable. "If I promote my story and my video gets at least 200 thousand views, I will only serve the general part of my sentence," Jakub explains.
I wonder how many people managed to miss the disclaimer and thought they were getting something.
Why would people pay Cards Against Humanity $5 for absolutely nothing? I assume that most know it’s a joke and feel like the bucks are simply a tip. Maybe for the smile they got from the company or because they’ve long enjoyed their products.
Apple thinks it’s okay to get rid of a connector standard and make you pay for an adapter just to use your wired headphones.
The report, citing a "reliable source," claims the new same-sized Lightning connector will support Lightning-equipped and Bluetooth headphones, and have a DAC, or digital-to-audio converter, for backwards compatibility with wired headphones using standard 3.5mm stereo jacks. A 3.5mm to Lightning adapter would be required.
Let’s hope this move will push down the prices of OLED TVs further.
The company said it will spend an initial 1.84 trillion won to begin building the plant, called P10, in Paju, South Korea, to make panels across all product segments including large screens for TVs and flexible OLED panels for devices such as smartwatches and auto displays. Production is expected to begin in the first half of 2018.
We have tested this with nine prominent VPN providers that offer port forwarding. Five of those were vulnerable to the attack and have been notified in advance so they could fix this issue before publication. However, other VPN providers may be vulnerable to this attack as we could not possibly test all existing VPN providers.
In what may be the "fourth largest consumer data breach to date," the toys and gadgets company had its database accessed via SQL injection, which includes the identities of many children.
The hacked data includes names, email addresses, passwords, and home addresses of 4,833,678 parents who have bought products sold by VTech, which has almost $2 billion in revenue. The dump also includes the first names, genders and birthdays of more than 200,000 kids. What’s worse, it’s possible to link the children to their parents, exposing the kids’ full identities and where they live, according to an expert who reviewed the breach for Motherboard.
I figure this should greatly reduce the number of sticks computing centers will need to order and install.
The 128GB TSV DDR4 RDIMM is comprised of a total of 144 DDR4 chips, arranged into 36 4GB DRAM packages, each containing four 20-nanometer (nm)-based 8-gigabit (Gb) chips assembled with cutting-edge TSV packaging technology.
The original Raspberry Pi Model B and its successors put a programmable computer within reach of anyone with $20-35 to spend. Since 2012, millions of people have used a Raspberry Pi to get their first experience of programming, but we still meet people for whom cost remains a barrier to entry. At the start of this year, we began work on an even cheaper Raspberry Pi to help these people take the plunge.
While this wasn't unexpected, it still sucks for our brothers and sisters across the pond.
Following the CJEU's decision in the Reprobel case (reported here and here), it is perhaps not surprising that the UK Intellectual Property Office has announced that it is to abandon the UK's private-copying exception which was introduced in October 2014, and which was effectively declared illegal by the High Court in July of this year, and so had to be withdrawn.
The Thermaltake Suppressor F31 is their latest full-tower, following on from their F51 chassis which launched earlier this year, designed with a relentless focus on silent performance. It’s been kitted out with thick panels, vast amounts of sound dampening materials, a front panel door and extensive air and water cooling support, giving you all the tools you need to build a power and super quiet system.
Don't feel bad, I thought this headline was insinuating that Microsoft had a problem with cocaine too.
A lot gets written about the problems of corporate culture in Silicon Valley. The workaholism, the sexism, the short-termism. But less gets written about the problems of corporate culture in Microsoft’s home turf of Redmond, Washington. Specifically, the milk.
How funny is this? The guy that cut a deal to testify against Kim Dotcom is already out of jail. Kinda makes you wonder if this will prompt others to take a deal to testify.
Earlier this year Andrus Nomm, one of the Megaupload employees indicted by the United States, was sentenced to a year in prison. Having done a deal with U.S. authorities and testified against Kim Dotcom, just nine months later the Estonian is a now a free man. The true cost to the Megaupload defendants is yet to be revealed.
You know what this means, don't you? You probably shouldn't use your phone until Monday.
The U.S. National Security Agency will end its daily vacuuming of millions of Americans' phone records by Sunday and replace the practice with more tightly targeted surveillance methods, the Obama administration said on Friday. As required by law, the NSA will end its wide-ranging surveillance program by 11:59 p.m. EST Saturday (4:59 a.m. GMT Sunday) and expects to have the new, scaled-back system in place by then, the White House said.
In fighting game circles, there is an interesting technique called "option select" which is essentially a combination of moves that guarantee the maximum possible best-case coverage depending on the scenario. While performing the exact same button or joystick combination, the result changes and switches in reaction to the opponent just by virtue of how the game engine works.
Unfortunately, preliminary Black Friday reports contain almost no useful information about the state of the economy. The first round of stories the ones on Thursday evening or Friday are driven almost entirely by anecdote: How many people showed up at the mall where a TV crew happened to set up its cameras? How long do the lines seem to be compared to last year, according to a mall manager with a vested interest in making sales look good? How much was spent by the handful of families willing to talk to journalists on their way back to the car? These stories help fill airtime on what is typically a slow news weekend, but they aren’t good for much else.
I have no idea how I picked it up. It must have happened last night on the walk back from The Memory Den in my second playthrough (where I am not using fast travel). Google "blurred Fallout 4" and you'll kick up panicked threads such as this one at GameFAQs. Others have reported glitches where their vision is in black-and-white (also an effect of taking a critical hit). There appears to be no cure for this.
The H440 2015 Edition slipped onto the market in a rather subtle way in October but hopes to make a lasting impression. NZXT has built on the success of the popular H440 by refining the cosmetics furnishing this 2015 Edition with an all-black matt finish which contains anti-scratch properties. The height and depth of the chassis has increased and a PWM fan hub makes an appearance too.
According to this data, Windows 10 market share is up at the expense of Windows 7.
The latest data from the massive United States Digital Analytics program shows that Windows 10 usage has climbed sharply, with older versions, including Windows 7 and Windows XP, dropping steeply. The only other desktop platform showing signs of growth is Chrome OS.
Apparently the Rainbow Six: Siege open beta hit a few snags right out of the gate but, according to this forum post, everything is back on track and should be good to go now.
We’re currently seeing issues with matchmaking times and disconnection on all platforms. As such we’re postponing the Open Beta until a later time and keeping the game under Closed Beta status. We apologize for the delay and can assure you this is our top priority. We will keep everyone updated regularly as we continue to deploy improvements.
