  • Apple updates 15-inch MacBook Pro, adds Force Touch - Apple has refreshed its 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display, while also dropping the price of its top-of-the-line iMac with Retina 5K Display. The new 15-inch MacBook Pro comes with the pressure-sensitive Force Touch trackpad that debuted in the new MacBook and updated 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display along with some user interface enhancements. The upgrades don't stop there as Apple has also included faster flash storage that adds an extra hour of battery life and AMD's new graphics hardware. The iMac with Retina 5K Display has had a price drop and now starts at just $1,999 with the top-end model just $300 more at $2,299. The new lower starting price was achieved by dropping the Fusion Drive, which combined a traditional 1TB hard drive with a 128GB SSD and automatically moved applications between the two depending on which were in use at the time, but it's worth noting that the higher priced iMac with Retina 5K Display still comes with a Fusion Drive.

  • Factory reset might not remove all data from Android phones - The factory reset feature, which is assumed to be the final step before selling off an old device, has been found to be flawed by the researchers who tested it on 21 devices from five manufacturers. The devices used for the research were rather old and ran builds of Android lower than version 4.4 but the researchers are confident that these issues might still persist in the newer versions of the OS. According to the research paper, the devices that were tested retained data SMS data, emails, contacts, authorized accounts and information from various apps such as Facebook and WhatsApp. Digging deep into retained data, the researchers were able to obtain Google's master token used for authenticating apps such as Calendar and Contacts on the device, as well. It is said that the drivers required for completely wiping the device might not be included by the manufacturers, who generally tend to customize the standard functioning of the operating system, making it not just Google's problem.

The Witcher 3 infinite money exploit - briefly
(hx) 05:00 PM EDT - May,22 2015 - Post a comment / read (2)
WhatsMyGame found an infinite money exploit in The Witcher 3 that involves killing some of the most innocent creates in the game: cows. When you kill a cow, you can harvest their hide for a cool 27 gold. After slaughtering such an innocent creature, Geralt will need to meditate for at least two hours for the cows to respawn, which you can then kill them over and over and over again. There are a few drawbacks to this exploit, although they're not really deal breakers in the grand scheme of things. First, the cow corpses don't immediately vanish, which could very well make you look like a complete psychopath if anyone should catch you mid-slaughter. The other is the fact the shopkeepers will quickly run out of money if you continue to sell them hide, so be mindful of that so you aren't stuck with a ton of hides in your inventory.
