  • Intel 2016 CPU Roadmap Leaked - The latest Intel CPU roadmap for 2016 has leaked and it features information on several upcoming CPU models including Broadwell-E, Apollo Lake, and Kaby Lake-S. Broadwell-E is the next entry in the "high-end" CPU market and will have four different models with the lowest level CPU sporting six cores at 3.4GHz. Kaby Lake-S will replace the recently released Skylake processors though it should be noted that its release was only enabled by the delay to Cannonlake. It will add support for USB 3.1, HDCP 2.2, and increase PCIe 3.0 lanes from 20 to 24. Apollo Lake will take the place of Braswell, a low power chip designed for mobile devices.
  • MSI Z170A Gaming M5 Motherboard Tested - MSI was among the first to participate in our Z170 review series. Will the now-mature firmware give its $180 Z170A Gaming M5 a lead in the upper-midrange LGA 1151 enthusiast segment?
  • ASUS Announces 20th Anniversary Gold Edition GTX 980 Ti - ASUS is releasing the GTX 980 Ti version for the 20th Anniversary Golden Edition to celebrate 20 years of making graphics cards. This will be the last chance to get the limited edition gold card. It is not just a GTX 980 Ti in gold, this is the fastest GTX 980 Ti on the planet - even without liquid cooling! Yes, you can buy it, with the GPU base clock set to a whopping 1,266MHz, and 1,367Mhz for GPU boosted clock! To put that in perspective, that is even higher than the mighty ROG Matrix GTX 980 Ti with a base clock of of 1,216 MHz and boosted clock of 1,317Mhz! This translates to 22.1% more performance in Grand Theft Auto V and 20.8% more frames per second in Witcher 3 when compared to reference!  Advanced features such as Memory Defroster for LN2 overclocking, color-coded Load Indicator to display GPU load level, and Safe Mode for instant VBIOS reload are all onboard. DirectCU II with 0dB fan technology provides complete silence for general use, while being 30% cooler and three times quieter than reference during more intensive gaming.
  • Radeon R9 Nano roundup - At 1440p the AMD Radeon R9 Nano provided a decent gameplay experience. In most games we were able to use nearest to highest, if not highest game settings in games. The only game we only really needed to back down on settings was The Witcher 3. All other games were playable at enjoyable game settings on the Nano. Considering the small form factor computer we had built this is good news for the 1440p gameplay experience. The AMD Radeon R9 Fury X took it further and was faster than the AMD Radeon R9 Nano. Though we were already experiencing a high level of gameplay, the Fury X added more performance to the mix and did allow some higher settings. Even better still the GeForce GTX 980 Ti had the best performance, and allowed the highest overall settings. In pure terms of an enjoyable 1440p gameplay experience, the Fury X and GTX 980 Ti are faster, but the Nano did deliver an enjoyable experience, it did not suffer.
  • NEC EA275UHD 27-inch UHD Monitor Review - If you're interested in Ultra HD for gaming, this monitor doesn't break any new ground. It's a 60Hz panel and forgoes both G-Sync and FreeSync. A 60Hz refresh rate at 3840x2160 resolution is likely to be with us until newer DisplayPort and HDMI standards are able to handle the extra bandwidth. And at this writing the only frame-rate-matching-capable UHD screen available is Acer's XB280HK which offers G-Sync technology. The EA275UHD therefore is squarely aimed at the enterprise. Pretty much anything NEC makes can be considered luxury business class based on build quality alone. The Ultra HD factor however takes this display to the top of its category.
  • Microsoft cumulative update (KB3120677) for Windows 10 - Microsoft has now rolled out an updated Cumulative Update (KB3120677) via Windows Update, replacing the previous one that rolled out a week ago, and now brings the OS version up to 10586.14. This update only applies to systems updated to version 15/11 (November Update). You can apply it by going in to All Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update and then 'Check for updates', or simply wait for Windows 10 to automatically apply it.
  • Wi-Fi enabled Barbie doll can be easily hacked - Security experts have warned that Mattel's latest Wi-Fi enabled Barbie doll can easily be exploited by hackers to spy on children and listen in on household conversations without the owner's knowledge. In addition to having Wi-Fi capabilities, the Hello Barbie doll features speech recognition technology that allows it to listen to a child and respond via voice – like a less-advanced version of digital assistants such as Cortana and Siri. Mattel says the toy "listens and remembers the user's likes and dislikes, giving everyone their own unique experience."  The conversations are recorded and stored on the servers of ToyTalk, the company behind the technology. There's even an option for parents to upload and share the conversations online. Security researcher Matt Jakubowski discovered that when connected to a Wi-Fi network the doll was vulnerable to hackers. He was easily able to access the doll's account information, system information, stored audio files and microphone.
  • Anonymous takes down ISIS website, replaces it with Viagra ad - Anonymous seems to be going all out with waging war against terrorist group ISIS. Ghost Sec, a group related to the global hacktivist network, defaced a website that promotes ISIS propaganda, and replaced its contents with an advertisement for the sexual performance-enhancing drug Viagra.
  • $10 Tool Can Guess (And Steal) Your AMEX Credit Card Number - Watch-sized gadget, called MagSpoof, can store more than a hundred credit card numbers and emit an electromagnetic field that's strong enough to hit a credit card reader's sensor from close proximity, sending a signal that imitates a credit card being swiped. Kamkar's device also includes a button that implements prediction algorithm.
  • Xiaomi Adds Fingerprint Sensor to Redmi Note 3 - Xiaomi today announced the Redmi Note 3, a big-screened smartphone that includes several firsts. The Redmi Note 3 is the first phone from Xiaomi made from metal, and also the first to offer a fingerprint sensor for securing the handset. Xiaomi says the fingerprint sensor can read prints in 0.3 seconds. The Redmi Note 3 has a 5.5-inch full HD screen and is powered by a MediaTek Helio X10 processor. The main camera features a 13-megapixel sensor and the front camera has a 5-megapixel sensor with dozens of beauty modes for selfies. The Redmi Note 3 packs a 4,000mAh battery, WiFi, Bluetooth, and dual SIM slots. It will be sold in two variants, 2GB RAM with 16GB of storage ($140) and 3GB of RAM with 32GB of storage ($172). The phone runs Xiaomi's MIUI 7 operating system, which is based on Android. Xiaomi did not announce plans to bring the handset to the U.S.
  • Skype for iPhone Adds Number and Address Detection - Skype improved its app for the iPhone and iPad today with support for call and calendar actions. Skype 6.6 now highlights phone numbers, addresses, times, and dates. Tapping on highlighted text starts the corresponding action. For example, tapping a phone number within a message will bring up the Skype dialpad with the number preloaded, or tapping an address will open Apple Maps and search for the location. Similar actions are available for the calendar, as well. Skype will automatically set up events and pull in any relevant details from the message thread. The calendar appointment will include a Skype chat URL in the notes, too, that goes back to the message. Last, Skype 6.6 improves multitasking by making it easier to return to Skype audio/video calls from the instant messaging or contact sections of the app. Skype 6.6 for iOS is free to download from the iTunes App Store.
  • Verizon Allowing Customers to Send Data as a Gift - Verizon Wireless today made it possible for subscribers to send one another the gift of data access. Verizon customers can send 1GB of LTE 4G data to family/friends for $10. Gifted data will be billed directly to the sender's account. The data can be purchased through the Verizon Messages app or Verizon's web site. Verizon said an update to the Verizon Messages app for Android, being pushed out today, adds the data-gifting feature.

  • Samantha Bee Kills Aliens In The Promo For 'Full Frontal' - Full Frontal With Samantha Bee: late-night topical comedy coming to TBS February 2016.

Both will join Poe Dameron, the trusted pilot of the Resistance who uses his expert flying skills to travel the galaxy, and Kylo Ren, an enforcer for the First Order who terrorizes the galaxy with devious acts.

PS4 Remote Play Is Officially Coming To PC & Mac - briefly
(hx) 05:31 AM EST - Nov,28 2015 - Post a comment / read (2)
Shuhei Yoshida, President of Worldwide Studios at Sony Computer Entertainment, revealed via twitter that Sony is working on an official Playstation 4 Remote Play application for PC and Mac.
Some people asked if we plan to provide Remote Play function to PC, and yes, we are indeed working on an official application for PC/Mac. :D
It will be interesting, because on Wednesday, the indie developer released a modified version of Sony's PS4 Remote Play for PC that he has been working on for the past year. His PC app is actually a port of an Android version he previously created. As of now, Sony's official PS4 Remote Play app only works with the Vita and a select few Android smartphones. A reaction from Sony isn't all that surprising, especially considering the fact that Twisted’s PC app isn’t free (it sells for 6.50 GBP or roughly $9.78).

Fallout 4 - First Texture Mod - mod&map
(hx) 01:17 PM EST - Nov,27 2015 - Post a comment / read (3)
Modder Hein84 has released the first Texture mod for Fallout 4 that overhauls the game's terrain surfaces. What is also amazing is that while these overhauled textures look better than the original ones, they are also about 1/4 less V-Ram heavy.

In related news, Fr4nsson has released a new mod that fixes the out blown lightsM in Fallout 4 both indoors and outdoors and remove skylights a.k.a FakeLights indoors. Do note that this mod makes the game darker.

BTW: Anyone run into this problem playing Fallout 4? There appears to be no cure for this.

Star Wars Battlefront Free DLC Plans - briefly
(hx) 04:52 PM EST - Nov,25 2015 - Post a comment
An update to EA's Star Wars website from Patrick Söderlund talks about Star Wars Battlefront, saying it is "the biggest launch of a Star Wars video game ever and is the largest digital launch in the history of EA." He also outlines plans for free content coming to the Star Wars action game along with the planned premium season pass DLC:
Best of all, this is just the beginning. We have lots of new content coming over the next several months that will provide new ways to immerse yourself in Star Wars.

In two weeks, The Battle of Jakku launches. Taking place 29 years before the events of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, The Battle of Jakku is a free DLC pack* that adds two new maps (including one for popular modes like Walker Assault and Supremacy) and a new mode to the game. The coolest thing is that it's the only place you'll be able to experience the pivotal events that help shape the look of one of the next iconic planets in the Star Wars universe. We can't wait for you to step onto Jakku for the first time with us.

Of course, we are also planning to support Star Wars Battlefront with new content well into the future. We will be adding more of what you love about the game, like new maps and Star Cards, for free in the coming months, in addition to all of the content we have coming with Season Pass. We'll have more to share soon.

How To Play PS4 Games On Your PC - briefly
(hx) 01:03 PM EST - Nov,25 2015 - Post a comment / read (3)
There's a video showing how the remote play works between PC and PS4 and how smooth it is, running the game almost smoother and faster than the PS4. Over on the website, the lone developer of Twisted Productions announced that the PC to PS4 app would be released... for a price. There are definitely a lot of people out there who would likely pay a small fee to own the app, even though the function of the app really is redundant if you already own a PS4. Essentially it just allows you to play games remotely on your PC through your PS4. It does not actually make PS4 games work on PC like an emulator. It's literally identical to the Windows 10 streaming of Xbox One games through the Xbox app, only it's for the PS4 and you don't need Windows 10.

Heroes of the Storm: Towers of Doom Overview - movie
(hx) 12:59 PM EST - Nov,25 2015 - Post a comment
Heroes of the Storm players have one more battleground to fight over starting today. Blizzard has released "Towers of Doom," a spooky map with new objectives for players to tackle. In "Towers of Doom," players must once against destroy the enemy team's Core to win. However, they can't directly attack the enemy base. The Core is protected by a walled fortress topped with cannons that can't be attacked, much less destroyed. To damage the Core, players need to instead activate Altars that periodically appear on the map. Using the altar requires you to stand next to them and channel for a few seconds. Assuming an enemy doesn't disrupt this process by hitting the player, the altar will be activated and make all of a team's Bell Towers fire on the enemy Core.
