Weekend game, movie, hardware deals - briefly

Like every week, here's a selection of this weekend's PC / Blue-ray movies, hardware deals!
TechNews - Wireless Routers 101 - tech
(hx) 01:24 PM EST - Feb,13 2016 - Post a comment
  • Wireless Routers 101 -  Choosing a router can get complicated. You have tons of choices across a range of price points. You'll want to evaluate your needs and consider variables like the speed of your Internet connection, the devices you intend to connect and the features you anticipate using. My own personal recommendation would be to look for a minimum wireless rating of AC1200, USB connectivity and management through a smartphone app.
  • Apple Pushes Out New iOS, WatchOS, tvOS Betas - Apple has made several new beta operating system available to developers. First up is iOS 9.3 beta 3. Apple didn't spell out what's new in build 13E5200d, aside from performance tweaks. iOS 9.3's previously disclosed new features include richer tools for education, Night Shift to reduce eye strain, as well as new behaviors to Notes and Health. WatchOS 2.2 beta 3 updates the map app and makes it possible to pair the Apple Watch with more than a single iPhone. Last, tvOS 9.2 adds support for Bluetooth keyboards. The betas are available to developers to download starting today. Apple generally makes public betas available to consumers a day or two after it releases developer betas.
  • Don't set your iPhone's date to January 1, 1970! - A bug has been discovered that causes some recent iOS devices to be permanently bricked if the user changes the date to January 1st, 1970, and reboots. So please, don't try this at home, although it's hard to understand why anyone would want to
  • Check your Google security settings, get 2 GB of free Drive storage - There really aren't any catches to this one: if you check your Google account's security settings, Google will give you an extra 2 GB of free Google Drive storage to go on top of the 15 GB the service already offers for free. To claim the free 2 GB, the process of checking your account security is incredibly simple. Firstly, you head to your security settings, where Google will ask you to review your recovery information. If the information listed there is correct, you can proceed to checking the list of devices connected to your account, where you should remove anything that looks unfamiliar. The third step involves reviewing all the apps that have permission to access your Google account. Again, you'll want to remove anything that looks out of place or that you don't use anymore. After that, you have to check your app passwords, revoking anything that looks suspicious. And finally, you'll be asked to review any two-step verification settings if you have enabled this feature on your Google account. When you complete all the aforementioned steps, a small notice appears telling you that Google has added 2 GB of free Drive storage to your account to celebrate Safer Internet Day 2016. A quick check of Drive's storage information suggests this free 2 GB of space does not expire. If you want to claim your free 2 GB of storage, increasing the amount of free storage in your account to 17 GB, spend the two minutes to check your security settings before the promotion expires on February 18th.
  • Gmail to Call Out Insecure Emails - Google is hoping to protect Gmail users by making them more aware of secure and insecure messages. Moving forward, Gmail will display an open lock icon for Google Apps users who receive messages from email services that don't support an encrypted connection. The same applies when users are about to send an email through unprotected servers. Google says people sending messages between Google-hosted domains won't see the open lock icon because Gmail operates through secure servers. Further, if Google can't authenticate the sender of an email via Sender Policy Framework or DKIM, it will replace the sender's profile photo with a question mark. Google believes these visual clues will help people tread more carefully when opening and responding to emails. Google also suggests Gmail users take advantage of two-step verification, activate Data Loss Prevention, check and fine-tune spam settings, and enforce mobile device policies. These changes will role out to Google Apps users (business accounts) over the next few weeks.
  • Sprint Ups the Ante with $150 Unlimited Family Bundle - Sprint today announced a new promotion that will give a family of four unlimited talk, text, and data for $150 per month. A single line for the unlimited plan costs $75 per month. Two lines cost $120 per month, three lines cost $150, four lines cost $150 (fourth is free), and lines five through 10 cost $30 each. In addition to the calling, messaging, and LTE 4G access, the unlimited plan includes 3 GB of mobile hotspot and Sprint Global Roaming with unlimited 2G data and text messaging in select countries. Sprint's new unlimited pricing will be available beginning February 12 for a limited time. Sprint also extended its 50% rate plan promotion for AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon Wireless customers through March 31.
  • Sprint Offering $200 In Credit for Trade-Ins - Sprint today is kicking off a limited promotion that will reward new and existing customers with $200 in credit towards a new device when they trade in a working smartphone. The credit can be applied to the Samsung Galaxy S6 or Galaxy Note 5. Sprint says the $200 credit drops the monthly lease cost of the GS6 to $9.76 per month and the Note 5 to $16.67 per month. The $200 trade-in credit is available to shoppers at Sprint's retail stores starting today, and will be available online and via phone by the end of the week. Sprint says the device being traded in cannot be a lease, and existing customers must be upgrade-eligible to score the $200 trade-in credit. The offer can be combined with Sprint's current half-off rate plans to customers who switch from AT&T, T-Mobile, or Verizon Wireless.
  • Einstein's gravitational waves 'seen' from black holes - Scientists are claiming a stunning discovery in their quest to fully understand gravity.  Being able to detect gravitational waves enables astronomers finally to probe what they call "dark" Universe - the majority part of the cosmos that is invisible to the light telescopes in use today.
  • Hardcore Henry - Official Trailer - Strap in. HARDCORE HENRY is one of the most unflinchingly original wild-rides to hit the big screen in a long time: You remember nothing. Mainly because you've just been brought back from the dead by your wife (Haley Bennett). She tells you that your name is Henry. Five minutes later, you are being shot at, your wife has been kidnapped, and you should probably go get her back. Who's got her? His name's Akan (Danila Kozlovsky); he's a powerful warlord with an army of mercenaries, and a plan for world domination. You're also in an unfamiliar city of Moscow, and everyone wants you dead. Everyone except for a mysterious British fellow called Jimmy (Sharlto Copley). He may be on your side, but you aren't sure. If you can survive the insanity, and solve the mystery, you might just discover your purpose and the truth behind your identity. Good luck, Henry. You're likely going to need it…

  • Batman v. Superman: The Batman Suite Music Sample - Now imagine this with some Batman action on IMAX :-)
  • Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice - Official Final Trailer - To celebrate this movie it inspires an observation. Superman is powered by day, Batman is empowered by the night. One inspires hope, the other uses fear. Metropolis is shiny, clean while Gotham is opaque and rough looking.

  • S7 Airlines OK Go, Upside down & Inside Out - OK Go are known for making crazy music videos but what they've pulled off with their new video for 'Upside Down Inside Out' is the craziest thing they've done yet. The band went on an S7 Airlines flight and shot the entire video in zero gravity, which let them pull off a bunch of crazy stunts. This really has to be seen to be believed.

Ghost Recon: Future Soldier's e3 2010 Build - movie
(hx) 01:01 PM EST - Feb,13 2016 - Post a comment
PtoPOnline has posted a video of the E3 2010 build of Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, showing why this particular build looked and played differently than the final build. The video shows how the developers were able to cut CPU and GPU cycles by scripting various events and disabling AI. This proves that nothing shown at E3 should be taken for granted :-)

Star Citizen's Discount Package for Backers - briefly
(hx) 06:29 PM EST - Feb,12 2016 - Post a comment / read (5)
Roberts Space Industries announces the chance for backers to buy a second Star Citizen bundle at a discount to give away as a gift before the price increases of their impeding package split.
The Star Citizen/Squadron 42 package split is almost here, so we thought we’d give existing backers one last chance to get both elements together at a small discount. All existing Star Citizen backers will have access to a $40 USD giftable Aurora package up until the package split occurs on February 14th, 2016! Why not take this final opportunity to gift your Valentine both Squadron 42 and Star Citizen's persistent universe?1

1 – DISCLAIMER: Cloud Imperium Games assumes no responsibility for any impact on your relationship that might occur should you decide to gift your significant other an Aurora MR package instead of, say, flowers and candy. That’s not to say it’s a terrible idea all around, as there certainly are plenty of people who’ll appreciate bare-knuckle multiplayer space combat in an immersive multiplayer universe and epic, cinematic storytelling… just, use common sense on this one. Maybe err on the side of buying a pillow that has ‘I LOVE YOU’ with a picture of a bear embroidered on it instead of the Aurora MR, the latest hard-flying starter ship from Roberts Space Industries’ legendary line of sturdy spacecraft.

Need for Speed Coming to PC on March 17th - briefly
(hx) 06:50 PM EST - Feb,11 2016 - Post a comment
Need For Speed will be released on March 17, and it will include a host of improvements, some of which should probably have been included in the game in the first place. As Ghost Games mentioned, Need For Speed was delayed in part because of the locked frame rate. The PC version will come with completely unrestricted framerates. Ghost Games also included 4K textures for gamers with 4K displays. When Need For Speed comes out on PC, the game will finally have a manual transmission option. The original release of the game didn't have one, and Ghost Games said that the feature was one of the additions that the community demanded the most. The developer said that the console versions of the game will also get the manual transmission option when the game launches on PC.

Wheel support is another community-requested feature that Ghost Games has taken seriously. The company said that the PC version of the game will ship with support for select wheels from Logitech, Thrustmaster and Fanatec. It’s not clear if wheel support extends to the console versions of Need For Speed.
