Weekend game, movie, hardware deals - briefly
(hx) 09:50 AM EDT - Nov,01 2014 - Post a comment
Here's a selection of this weekend's PC / Blue-ray movies, hardware deals:
TechNews - Graphics cards with 8GB of RAM - tech
(hx) 09:17 AM EDT - Nov,01 2014 - Post a comment
There is not really much to say about the 8GB model, as MSI R9 290X GAMING 8GB looks exactly the same as 4GB model. The only way to determine whether you are looking at 4GB or 8GB model is the packaging, where it clearly states the size of the frame buffer. Both variants are equipped with the backplate, so even if 8GB model had dual-sided memory, you wouldn't even notice. However since MSI R9 290X 4GB GAMING doesn't really have any space left on the back of the PCB (high-res picture here), it is safe to assume 8GB models will simply feature higher capacity modules.
  • Get ready for more graphics cards with 8GB of RAM - Cards with twice as much memory are reportedly on the way, though. According to Sweclockers, AMD will answer the GeForce GTX 980 with an 8GB version of the Radeon R9 290X. That variant is due on November 6, the site says, putting it less than a week away.
  • Synology DS415+ Review: DSM on Intel Rangeley - Synology recently launched the DS415+, their first Intel Rangeley-based NAS. This 4-bay NAS, targeted towards SMBs and SOHOs, finally brings about hardware accelerated encryption
  • Xbox 360 And Xbox One Built Into A Laptop Unit - Console modder Edward Zarick has revealed his latest creation, and it does not disappoint. The "Xbook Duo" is a laptop that combines an Xbox 360 and Xbox One in one package, solving the problem of backwards compatibility, Zarick says. The Xbook Duo, which unfortunately is only a prototype and is not for sale, can play either Xbox 360 or Xbox One games with the flip of a switch.
  • Microsoft has released a new Outlook for Mac - Microsoft has announced a new version of Outlook for OS X users and if you subscribe to Office 365, you can download the updated email client today. Also, the company has said that a public beta of Office for Mac will arrive in the first half of 2015. This is the first large release of a new Outlook client for OS X in some time. The last major update was the Office 2011 release and this update brings with it many new features and improvements.
  • Watch Microsoft's Band in action -  The device, called the 'Band,' has a bunch of fairly unique sensors and can also show you alerts from your PC/smartphone on its screen. Along with the announcement, Microsoft has released the first video of the device that can be viewed above. You can see how the device integrates into your life as a fitness tracker but also has extra functionality to make it useful for when you are not running too.
  • Tim Cook: 'I'm Proud To Be Gay' - Apple CEO Tim Cook publicly confirmed he is gay in an opinion piece published Thursday, making him the highest-profile chief executive to come out.
  • Jailbreak iOS 8 And iOS 8.1 With Pangu On iPhone 6, 6 Plus, 5s, iPad - Team Pangu has released a tool allows you to jailbreak iOS 8 to iOS 8.1 untethered on iPhone 6, 6 Plus, 5s, 5c, 5, 4s, all iPads, and iPod touch 5.
  • iPhone 6 Plus Bending Prank - The video is in German (subtitles are there), and it seems to be kinda fun hearing someone swearing in the language. How would you have reacted if someone bend your iPhone right in front of you? :D
  • Samsung Galaxy A3 and Galaxy A5 officially announced - After indulging in metal frames on the Galaxy Alpha and Galaxy Note 4, the Korean manufacturer has decided to go all in. Both the A3 and A5 have an all metal unibody exterior - that means the backs on the devices are non-removable, which, along with the metal unibodies, are a first for an Android device from Samsung. The A3 and A5 are also the slimmest Samsung phones after the Galaxy Alpha. The A3 measures in at 6.9mm thin, while the A5 is even thinner at 6.7mm. In terms of hardware, there's not a lot to be impressed about. The Galaxy A3 and A5 feature 4.5-inch qHD and 5-inch HD Super AMOLED displays, a quad-core 1.2GHz processor, 1/2GB of RAM, 13/8-megapixel cameras, 16GB of expandable internal storage, LTE connectivity, and 1,900/2,300 mAh batteries. Both devices run on Android 4.4.4 KitKat, with an option to choose between four different themes, another feature that we haven't seen on any Samsung-made Android phone before.
  • Samsung Galaxy Note 4 vs Knife - As you will see in the clip, the Note 4's screen is highly sensitive. Even with a knife you can fully operate the device and the capacitive button is also working when the knife touches it. From the looks of things, the Note 4's display is more sensitive than that on the Xperia Z3. And thanks to the Gorilla Glass 3 protection, the screen on the Samsung device is not damaged after the blade attack.
  • Google Opens Nexus 6 Preorders, But Phone Already Backordered - Google has began accepting preorders for the Nexus 6 smartphone via the Google Play Store. However, Google almost immediately sold through its initial supply of the phone. Google says it is "out of inventory" and interested consumers should "check back soon." The phone, made by Motorola, comes in indigo blue or white, and either 32GB or 64GB variants. None of the four models is available. Google didn't say when it will replenish its inventory. Google only offers the unlocked model, which starts at $649. The phone will be sold by AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, U.S. Cellular, and Verizon Wireless in the weeks ahead. The carriers will offer the phone with contract and monthly installment pricing.
  • It's official: Google Glass is banned in movie theaters - Wearing Google Glass at the movies never was cool to begin with, and now it's official: You can't use the smart eyewear inside theaters. The Motion Picture Association of America and the National Association of Theatre Owners on Wednesday said they were officially banning the use of Glass and other wearable recording devices in the cinema as part of an updated "anti-theft policy." The MPAA has said the movie industry loses billions of dollars a year due to piracy.
  • Virgin Galactic's SpaceShipTwo Crashes - CNN: Officials: 1 pilot dead, 1 injured in SpaceShipTwo test-flight failure + video
  • AT&T Adds More Data to Mid-Range Plans - AT&T today tweaked its Mobile Share Value plans and added data to two of the options. Specifically, the $40 plan improves the data allowance from 2GB to 3GB, and the $70 plan improves the data allowance from 4GB to 6GB. All other plans/costs remain unchanged. The Mobile Share Value plans have a per-line access charge of $25 per month for AT&T Next subscribers or $40 per month for contract customers. The data packages are in addition to the per-line fees. AT&T also offers 300MB for $20 and 1GB for $25. All the plans include unlimited talk and text. Tablets still carry a $10 monthly access charge. The new plans will be available to new and existing customers from November 2 through November 15. Customers who need more data to share can take advantage of AT&T's Double the Data offer on its Mobile Share Value plans (15GB to 50GB), which now runs to November 15.
  • FTC Sues AT&T Over Throttling Practices - The U.S. Federal Trade Commission today filed a lawsuit against AT&T alleging the company has deceived consumers by throttling the speeds of subscribers to its unlimited plan. AT&T has throttled wireless speeds since 2011, but the FTC says it hasn't properly informed customers about the parameters that trigger it. According to the FTC, AT&T has slowed down broadband speeds of 3.5 million subscribers a total of 25 million times.
  • Sprint Lights Up 17 More Spark Markets - Sprint has launched its Spark service in 17 new markets scattered around the country. Spark uses three different spectrum bands to ensure the best possible LTE connection and speed. The new markets include Sacramento, Calif.; Denver, Colo.; Bay City, Flint, Midland, and Saginaw, Mich.; Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minn.; Henderson, N.C.; Cleveland, Columbus, Mount Vernon, New Philadelphia, Tiffin, and Youngstown, Ohio; Ogden, Utah; Seattle, Wash.; and Sheboygan, Wisc. Sprint says Spark is available in 46 markets and will meet its goal of covering 100 million POPs by the end of the year. Sprint sells 38 devices that are compatible with Spark.
  • Samsung Gear S Goes On Sale Nov. 7 - Samsung and its carrier partners announced availability and pricing details for the Gear S smartwatch today. AT&T and Sprint will offer the device starting November 7, but T-Mobile won't sell it until November 9. Pricing for the wearable varies by carrier. The full retail price is $350. AT&T is offering it for $200 with a two-year contract and $10 monthly service charge. Sprint says customers can get the Gear S with $0 down followed by 24 monthly payments of $16. Sprint's Gear S plan also costs $10 per month. T-Mobile is selling the Gear S for $0 down followed by payments of $14.58 for 24 months. T-Mobile's Gear S service plan costs $5 per month. Verizon has yet to announce its pricing and service plan details. The Gear S requires a service plan because it can access 3G networks and make voice calls independent of a smartphone. The Gear S is based on Samsung's Tizen platform and features a 2-inch, curved Super AMOLED display with 360 x 480 pixels. In addition to 3G, the Gear S includes Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. Samsung says it can transition between cellular and Bluetooth connections seamlessly. It includes Samsung's S Voice service for voice commands, and has an on-screen keyboard for composing messages. Other features include Samsung's S Health and fitness apps, music player and gallery apps, and the ability to receive notifications from a variety of services. The Gear S is powered by a dual-core 1.0GHz processor with 512MB of RAM and 4GB of storage. It has a 300mAh battery, which Samsung claims provides for two days of usage per charge.
  • Youtube supporting 60fps uploads starting today (chrome only) - Google's YouTube announced that it's adding two new features that will especially benefit people who enjoy watching gameplays and those who stream games live. Most excitingly, the site is rolling out 60 frames per second video playback. You need Google Chrome to watch YouTube videos at 60FPS, and you need to watch them in HD!

Dragon Age: Inquisition Has Gone Gold - gold
(hx) 06:21 AM EDT - Nov,01 2014 - Post a comment
BioWare has announced that Dragon Age: Inquisition has Gone Gold and will launch on November 18th for current and last-generation platforms.
From Mark Darrah, Dragon Age Executive Producer:

I'm excited to announce that Dragon Age: Inquisition has gone gold on all platforms! This milestone is a testament to the hard work of the developers (and their families!) who put so much into this game, and took on every challenge that was put before them. That we've made it this far is also an acknowledgment of tremendous support and patience from our fans: you've been an inspiration to us since the beginning.

We started working on this game in earnest more than four years ago, before we'd even finished Dragon Age II. Back then, our goal was simple: do whatever we had to in order to tell the biggest story we'd ever told in the Dragon Age universe. Achieving that meant leaving no stone unturned from adopting a new engine in Frostbite 3, to reimagining combat so it could blend tactics and action better than ever. It meant bringing back playable races in addition to gender choice, to work in conjunction with the biggest and deepest character creator we've ever built. It meant building a beautiful and detailed online platform to ensure your decisions from the previous games carried over. But most importantly, it meant crafting a story that put you in the role of a leader, with the biggest supporting cast we've ever had, made up of both new and returning characters.

These are characters who can challenge you, support you, fall in love with you, and maybe even betray you over the course of hundreds of hours of playing. Perhaps you'll do the same with them. Looking over the vastness of the game we've finished, it really is the Dragon Age experience we've always wanted to make for you.

The biggest story of the year is yours to play, very, very soon. Thank you.
Alone in the Dark: Illumination First Trailer - movie
(hx) 06:07 AM EDT - Nov,01 2014 - Post a comment
Yesterday, Alone in the Dark: Illumination went up for pre-order on Steam. Today, Atari is finally showing video of the game. The game features four-player cooperative action, in which light plays a vital role in surviving the enemy onslaught. You and your team will progress through a multi-stage encounter with a final fight against an elder god. And, because you can't really kill a god, you'll need to trap it or escape. The title plays out in third person, with a tight camera similar to recent Resident Evil titles and The Evil Within. Another significant difference from Left 4 Dead is that the four classes (hunter, witch, priest, and engineer) all have their own abilities and weapons and are connected to characters from the original Alone in the Dark titles.

Prey 2 Has Been Officially Cancelled - briefly
(hx) 10:35 AM EDT - Oct,31 2014 - Post a comment / read (4)
During this year's PAX Australia, Bethesda's vice president Pete Hines told CNET that Prey 2 has been officially cancelled. Yeap, Prey 2 is no more, despite some earlier rumors suggesting Arkane Studios picking up development.
It wasn't up to our quality standard and we decided to cancel it. It's no longer in development. That wasn't an easy decision, but it's one that won't surprise many folks given that we hadn't been talking about it.

Human Head Studios is no longer working on. It's a franchise we still believe we can do something with - we just need to see what that something is.
