TechNews - Windows 10 is 'Recommended' Update - tech
(hx) 05:57 AM EST - Feb,06 2016 - Post a comment / read (3)
FYI, Microsoft quietly made its optional Windows 10 update for Windows 7 and 8.1 users into a ''recommended'' update, and your system may automatically upgrade to the new operating system depending on your Windows Update settings.  The good news is that the Windows 10 installation will not finalize without first prompting the user. However, some home users may want to double check what they are clicking when the notification pops up to avoid an unintentional operating system upgrade. Home users can disable recommended updates in the Windows Update settings, and Enterprise IT administrators can disable the upgrade using Group Policy settings or by using the DisableUpgrade registrykey. In a worst-case scenario where your PC is updated to the new OS but you don't want it, the process can be rolled back for up to 31 days after the upgrade. (Unfortunately, it's not so painless process as they claim).  The change from "optional" to "recommended" may come off as an aggressive move from Microsoft, with the perceived pressure of upgrading to Windows 10 coming from the company's mission to update one billion devices to the new OS this year -- an ambitious goal that some contest may make the company eventually force users into an unwanted OS upgrade.

Microsoft provides instructions for disabling the Windows 10 upgrade, but they require hacking around in the Windows registry or Group Policy, ensuring most Windows users won’t feel comfortable doing this. The third-party GWX Control Panel app has been the best way to configure this, but it has to regularly update because Microsoft keeps finding ways around it
  • iPad Air 3 May Have 4K Panel And 4GB RAM - Apple is expected to unveil new models of its iPad Air in March 2016 and production will start in the second quarter, with General Interface Solution and TPK Holding to supply touch panels, according to Taiwan-based supply chain makers. The new 9.7-inch device will reportedly come equipped with a 4K resolution panel and up to 4GB in RAM, in addition to improved battery life. Apple believes that despite a decline in the tablet market and increased competition globally, it still has a base of dedicated customers who are looking to upgrade their iPads, the makers noted.
  • Apple Accepting Broken iPhones As Trade-Ins - Apple will now accept damaged iPhones as trade-ins when people wish to upgrade to a new iPhone. Previously, Apple only accepted working iPhones as trade-ins, but will now take in iPhones with "damaged displays, cameras, and buttons within reason." Apple will credit people who turn in a damaged iPhone 5s with $50. The company will credit people $200 for a broken iPhone 6 and $250 for a broken iPhone 6 Plus. Phones that don't have cracked screens or broken buttons may be worth up to $350. Apple hopes the change in policy will convince people holding onto older, possibly busted devices to upgrade. The new Apple trade-in policy is available at Apple's retail stores, but not online.
  • Thermaltake Launches 3DMakers Site - Can't find the exact part you are looking for in your latest PC build? Thermaltake is looking to make that a situation that will never happen again. 3DMakers.com allows users to upload and download free 3D printable PC mods of all kinds. If you are into 3D printing, and you might be soon, you will be glad to learn that all of the files are in a 3D-print-ready STL format.

  • Microsoft Building Underwater Data Centers? - Introducing Microsoft Project Natick, a Microsoft research project to manufacture and operate an underwater datacenter. The initial experimental prototype vessel, christened the Leona Philpot after a popular Xbox game character, was operated on the seafloor approximately one kilometer off the Pacific coast of the United States from August to November of 2015. Project Natick reflects Microsoft's ongoing quest for cloud datacenter solutions that offer rapid provisioning, lower costs, high responsiveness, and are more environmentally sustainable.
  • Unpatched eBay Vulnerability Allows Attackers To Distribute Malware - You know what the best part about this vulnerability is? eBay stating that they have no plans to fix it :-(
  • Dutch police training eagles to take down rogue drones - Using these birds of prey to capture drones is part of a new trial by the Dutch police in collaboration with Danish raptor training firm Guard from Above. Once an eagle is trained to recognize a drone, it can then grab one from the sky and carry it to safety. The handlers then trade the drone for treat to reward the eagle. Drone-killing eagles is just one solution the police force is testing against illegal UAV activity. They are also trialing a variety of other physical and electronic methods, including using a net, but the biggest advantage the birds have is that they can carry a drone away from a crowd, meaning there's little risk of an incapacitated UAV falling and injuring someone below.
  • Google, BlackBerry Make February Security Patch Available - Google is now delivering a security patch to Nexus smartphones and tablets. The patch resolves 10 issues, of which five are considered to be critical. The two most severe problems could allow for remote code execution through a WiFi driver and a media server. Google found the vulnerabilities in January and alerted its hardware partners to the problems. The security patch is available via factory images from Google's developer web site, but the company will push the update out over the air in the days ahead. Google plans to provide a new version of Android 6 Marshmallow to the Android Open Source Project in a day or two. Google says to the best of its knowledge that the security holes were not exploited. BlackBerry, too, is pushing the February security patch to the BlackBerry Priv smartphone. Other phone makers are expected to deliver the patch in the weeks ahead.
  • T-Mobile Offering Free Phone to New Prepaid Customers - T-Mobile will give a free phone to new customers who sign up for one of its prepaid services.

Customers must select a Simply Prepaid, Simple Choice Prepaid, or Simple Choice No Credit plan valued at $40 per month and up in order to receive the free phone. Customers who opt for a Simple Choice No Credit plan can receive an extra $50 mail-in rebate when activating a second line. T-Mobile didn't say how long the free phone deal will be available.
  • US Mobile Selling Xiaomi and Meizu Handsets - U.S. Mobile recently added several phones from Xiaomi and Meizu to its lineup, making it the first U.S. carrier to sell the Chinese handsets. Xiaomi and Meizu have both said they intend to enter the U.S. market, but have so far not landed any carrier deals. That changes today. U.S. Mobile is offering the Xiaomi Redmi 2 for $119, the Xiaomi Mi 3 for $139, the Xiaomi Mi 4i for $219, and the Meizu M2 Note for $149. U.S. Mobile is a prepaid carrier that resells access to T-Mobile's network. The phones from Xiaomi and Meizu run Android and can access T-Mobile's HSPA network, but not its LTE service. U.S. Mobile offers a wide assortment of service plans that can be customized to suit individual budgets. The Xiaomi and Meizu phone are available directly from U.S. Mobile's web site, where it sells an assortment of competing smartphones. "U.S. consumers have traditionally had to compromise to afford incredible devices," said Ahmed Khattak, founder and CEO of US Mobile. "Now, with the launch of our marketplace, we are thrilled to offer complete range of exceptional smartphones for low monthly payments and to give our customers access to exceptional phones otherwise not available in the U.S."

(hx) 01:50 PM EST - Feb,05 2016 - Post a comment
Ubisoft's time trial racing title Trackmania Turbo is launching next month. The title, announced during Ubisoft's 2015 E3 conference, will be releasing on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on March 25th. The publishers says that Trackmania Turbo comes with over 200 tracks in four environments Rollercoaster Lagoon, International Stadium, Canyon Grand Drift, and Valley Down and Dirty. The title was initially due to launch in 2015, but was delayed after the developers realised they needed more time to put the finishing touches to the game.

Today, Ubisoft announced that TrackMania Turbo, the latest installment in the TrackMania franchise developed by Nadeo, a Ubisoft studio, will be released on the PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One and Windows PC on March 25, 2016.

TrackMania Turbo features an easy-to-learn, hard-to-master, arcade racing universe with time attack gameplay, where players set their own limits and challenges. The game revolves around an exhilarating combination of matchbox car fantasy and massive scale, focused on the pursuit of the perfect run around the track.

Using the Trackbuilder tool, players can build an endless number of tracks to train and challenge their skills. TrackMania Turbo also includes more than 200 head-spinning tracks set in four beautiful environments, each with their own driving style: Rollercoaster Lagoon, International Stadium, Canyon Grand Drift and Valley Down & Dirty.

The brand-new Rollercoaster Lagoon is set in a tropical paradise, where drivers must race through sunny beaches and magnetic rollercoasters. The fan favourite International Stadium is back, along with the Canyon Grand Drift and Valley Down & Dirty environments, all reworked with updated graphics, gameplay, dedicated new car designs and a new artistic direction, creating a visual identity that immerses gamers in the arcade racing experience more than ever.
