TechNews - DirectX 12 = AMD + NVIDIA combo? - tech
(hx) 03:57 PM EST - Feb,28 2015 - Post a comment
  • DirectX 12 rumoured to allow combining AMD and Nvidia cards on same PC - A new rumour has emerged suggesting that Microsoft could be working on a revolutionary feature with DirectX 12, allowing users to combine graphics cards from Nvidia and AMD on the same machine.
  • Intel NUC5i5RYK Review: A Broadwell-U UCFF PC for Enthusiasts - The migration from 22nm to 14nm has allowed for higher base clocks while maintaining the same power envelop. The performance delta over the Haswell-U-based D54250WYKH (particularly, on the graphics side) is noticeable. That said, while migrating from Sandy Bridge or Ivy Bridge is a no-brainer, there is not enough on offer to recommend migrating from a Haswell-based UCFF PC.
  • System Builder Marathon, Q1 2015: The Articles - Here are links to each of the five articles in THG's System Builder Marathon
  • Synology DS2015xs Review: An ARM-based 10G NAS - Compared to the last 10G desktop NAS (based on an Intel Xeon platform), the power consumption is much lower At $1400, the DS2015xs is affordably priced, considering the 10G features built into it. DSM's business-oriented features (very important for the DS2015xs's target market) are stable and industry-leading. The presence of dual 10G ports and eight native SATA III ports might delude consumers into thinking that they are purchasing a Ferrari. Unfortunately, consumers only get a souped up Volkswagen engine inside. That said, with tempered expectations, the $1400 Synology DS2015xs can fulfill the role of a cost-effective power-efficient high performance NAS.
  • Mac OS X and iOS top 2014 security vulnerability list - Apple's operating systems saw an increase in security vulnerabilities in 2014 and because of their severity, caused OS X and iOS to top the charts for 2014. Over the years, Windows has consistently come under fire from security researchers for not being secure enough and having unpatched vulnerabilities. However, for the past few years, Microsoft has been taking security of its OS seriously and has released timely patches to protect users from threats; effectively dropping out of the top 3 vulnerable OSes list
  • Microsoft Gives Students And Teachers Free Office 365 Worldwide - Microsoft has announced that it is extending its offer of free Office 365 for students and teachers where Office 365 is available around the globe.
  • Microsoft Made An Android Keyboard Designed For Excel - Microsoft has launched Keyboard for Excel, an Android virtual keyboard designed to be used with Excel.
  • Google's Calendar App Enjoys a Useful Update - Google pushed out an update to its calendar app for Android devices today and added several features requested by users. For example, the calendar now offers a seven-day view and pinch-to-zoom. Users can now add Google Drive files directly to events and control whether or not birthdays are shown from Google+. The calendar can also show week numbers and import .ics files from within Gmail and other apps. Google Calendar for Android devices is free to download from the Google Play Store
  • Samsung Shows Off 128GB Embedded Flash Module - Samsung today announced that it is producing embedded memory modules for flagship smartphones using the new Universal Flash Storage (UFS) 2.0 standard. UFS is a generational leap compared to the eMMC standard, which is used widely in mobile devices today. The UFS standard uses a serial interface rather than an 8-bit interface common to eMMC modules, which helps produce speed gains. Samsung claims its UFS-based storage offers significantly faster read/write speeds compared to eMMC, while still delivering a 50% reduction in energy needs. Further, the ePoP (embedded package on package) solution can be stacked directly onto the logic board, reducing space requirements by 50%. The UFS chips can support 4K (Ultra HD) video playback while performing other tasks. Samsung is manufacturing 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB varieties of the module. Samsung imagines the new UFS memory modules will be ideal for flagship smartphones and tablets. It will continue to use eMMC-based memory products for mid-range and entry-level phones
  • T-Mobile Teases Samsung's Galaxy S6 - T-Mobile CEO John Legere today teased the forthcoming Samsung Galaxy S6 smart phone in a post to his personal Twitter account. Legere said, "Was there even a question? Of course T-Mobile will carry The Next Big Thing." Legere supplied a link to T-Mobile's web site, which has a sign up page for an unnamed Samsung device with the phrase "Six Appeal" emblazoned across the top. The silhouette on the page shows a phone with a curved display, much like the Galaxy Note Edge. Samsung is expected to reveal the Galaxy S6 in Barcelona on March 1
  • Apple wants to replace car keys with the Apple Watch -  Speaking about the battery life, the Apple CEO assured that the device would work for 24 hours and will take very less time to charge, although earlier reports have indicated at a disappointing battery life on the Apple Watch. OMFG is it a joke?? You watch battery dies and there go your keys :D Steve Jobs is probably rolling on his grave at how crappy Apple has became making products that sucks...
  • A Demonstration Of The Tech That Might Replace LTE - They'll be building a network soon in San Francisco to see how well it works in practice.
  • Hack gave U.S. and British spies access to billions of phones - U.S. and British spies hacked into the world's biggest maker of phone SIM cards, allowing them to potentially monitor the calls, texts and emails of billions of mobile users around the world, an investigative news website reported. The alleged hack on Gemalto (GTO.AS), if confirmed, would expand the scope of known mass surveillance methods available to U.S. and British spy agencies to include not just email and web traffic, as previously revealed, but also mobile communications. The Franco-Dutch company said on Friday it was investigating whether the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA) and Britain's GCHQ had hacked into its systems to steal encryption keys that could unlock the security settings on billions of mobile phones. The report by The Intercept site, which cites documents provided by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden, could prove an embarrassment for the U.S. and British governments. It opens a fresh front in the dispute between civil liberties campaigners and intelligence services which say their citizens face a grave threat of attack from militant groups like Islamic State. It comes just weeks after a British tribunal ruled that GCHQ had acted unlawfully in accessing data on millions of people in Britain that had been collected by the NSA.
  • Lenovo.com appears to be hacked by Lizard Squad - Lenovo.com has been hacked. As of 4PM ET, users visiting the site saw a slideshow of disaffected youths, set to the song "Breaking Free" from High School Musical. By 4:17, the site seemed to have reverted to its normal self, although HTML problems persist and in some instances, the song continued to play in the background. The hacked version has reappeared intermittently as cached versions work through the system. The source code for the hacked page identified it as, "the new and improved rebranded Lenovo website featuring Ryan King and Rory Andrew Godfrey," both of whom have been publicly identified as members of the hacker collective Lizard Squad. It's unclear whether King and Godfrey are actually related to the hack, or if the attackers are simply using their names and photos to muddle their true identity. The attackers seem to have hijacked Lenovo's domain record, an attack that would have given them the power to redirect the lenovo.com url to a new server under their control. The attack targets entirely external infrastructure, similar to the Syrian Electronic Army's attacks against Twitter and The New York Times in 2013. As a result, there's no reason to believe the attackers have breached Lenovo's internal network.
  • Simple iframe attack compromises SOHO routers - The end users who clicked the link in the phishing e-mail were sent to a website with malicious code contained within a hidden iframe. The malicious code uses nothing more than HTML to attempt to log into the router and change the DNS settings. Tools like NoScript can't protect you here, nor can your browser's same-origin policy, since those tools protect against JavaScript attacks, not HTML.
  • Uber security breach may have affected up to 50,000 drivers - Thousands of Uber driver names and driver's license numbers may be in the hands of an unauthorized third party due to a data breach that occurred last year, the ride-hailing company said Friday. lRelated 13.5 million Californians affected by Anthem data breach. In a statement, Uber's managing counsel of data privacy, Katherine Tassi, said the company discovered on Sept. 17, 2014, that one of its many databases could have potentially been accessed because one of the encryption keys required to unlock it had been compromised

  • Free Energy Nitinol Heat Machines invented in the early 1970 - This video is about Nitinol memory metal engines that are basically Stirling heat engines and work on a very low temperature difference. This technology can be easily scaled up into the KWatts range and drive a power generator to generate 50 or 60 HZ AC power. If you use solar power via Fresnell lenses to heat the hot water bath you can convert this heat energy into mechanical motion energy and then use a generator to generate 120 Volts 60 Hz AC or 230 Volts 50 Hz AC power.

Delay for CoD:Advanced Warfare's Latest DLC on PC - briefly
(hx) 11:03 AM EST - Feb,27 2015 - Post a comment
Sledgehammer Games has delayed the PC release of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare's first DLC, Havoc, after the developer discovered an "unexpected issue." The expansion was supposed to arrive today, but has been pushed back a week and will now launch March 3. Havoc originally launched in January for Xbox 360 and Xbox One. It arrived today for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4.
Santa Monica, CA - February 26, 2015 - Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Havoc, the first DLC pack for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is now available for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3. Packed to the brim with content, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Havoc includes four new, epic multiplayer maps, access to the versatile AE4 directed energy assault rifle, the AE4 Widowmaker custom variant, plus an exciting all-new cooperative mode called Exo Zombies.

Havoc's four exotic and diverse multiplayer maps are set around the globe and are tailor-made for players to unleash their exoskeleton's abilities:
  • Core: Deploy to the Gobi desert where the ravaged ruins of a nuclear fusion plant set the stage for a high-octane warzone. Take down enemies through the wreckage in long-range combat or get up-close and personal in the tunnels surrounding the central turbine. Activate decontamination drones using the map-based scorestreak to help clean out the competition.
  • Urban: Prepare yourself for brutal, high-speed combat in Dallas Ward 3, a future mega structure, funneling players into a close-quarters free-for-all. This modular compound's verticality unleashes the exoskeleton's capabilities. Stay focused during the timed event as blast doors alter the map's flow and sightlines.
  • Sideshow: In the shadow of Devil's Tower, Wyoming, this abandoned inn's open layout amplifies its creep factor. Blast your way through the clown inn with close-quarters battles or use long-range site-lines from the mining facilities and natural terrain. Use the map-based scorestreak to activate the lights, music, and magic of the clown marquee and rain down a barrage of rainbow smoke-trailed cannonballs.
  • Drift: An idyllic ski resort high in the Rocky Mountains is transformed into a festive high-altitude playground, perfect for an all-out firefight. Make your way to the highly contested over watch in the glass observation deck or take a ride on the carousel to deliver 360 degrees of carnage. Players can use the map-altering timed event to their advantage as an avalanche of snow and debris disorients players, intensifying the battle.
Havoc's new cooperative experience, Exo Zombies, features a story told through the eyes of four employees of the Atlas Corporation. Played by a celebrity cast consisting of John Malkovich (In the Line of Fire, RED, Burn After Reading), Bill Paxton (Aliens, Titanic, Edge of Tomorrow), Rose McGowan (Planet Terror, Scream), and Jon Bernthal (Fury, The Wolf of Wall Street), Exo Zombies ushers in a new breed of zombies and a truly unique experience in the Havoc DLC Pack.

Shadow of Mordor: The Bright Lord DLC Trailer - movie
(hx) 01:27 AM EST - Feb,25 2015 - Post a comment
Shadow of Mordor: The Bright Lord DLC is available as now as the final DLC pack for the game. Before The Bright Lord, the other DLC packs consisted of new skins, enemies, and hunting missions. The Bright Lord however stands out as the sole story DLC for the game, and promises to look like a formidable final battle. It promises 10 new missions and a new elite nemisis system for war chiefs and enemies. Let's just hope it will not be so reliant on quick time events as the main campaign's final battle bout was. Players can also play in a new challenge mode against high level enemies and earn high level runes.

Now it's up to the managers of Steam, XBL, and PSN to update the store :-)
