GOG Galaxy, the Steam-like client from GOG.com - briefly
(hx) 11:25 AM EDT - May,05 2015 - Post a comment
If you're looking for a Digital Rights Management-free alternative to Steam, then GOG have got your back. The retailer of DRM-free older PC games, and now plenty of new games too, has created their own platform and client to play games bought through the service with. It's been in alpha for a little while, but has now launched in open beta form for all to try. The service is optional, and you can continue to buy and play games from GOG.com without the use of the Galaxy client. But using Galaxy will give you access to Steam-like features such as automatic updates and achievements. The software is cross-play enabled too, meaning Steam and Galaxy users can play together. Galaxy launches with 1,000 games, and more will be added as time goes by. To try it out now!

Rockstar Banning Players For Modding GTA V - briefly
(hx) 02:00 AM EDT - May,05 2015 - Post a comment / read (4)
Rockstar has recently made modding Grand Theft Auto V a violation of their terms of service, enforcing a ban on players found to be using mods. This wouldn't be a surprise for mods affecting the online mode, but it seems that even single player mods can get you banned. To justify the banning of players, some Rockstar representatives are referring players to the EULA where the following can now be found:
You agree not to:
[..] reverse engineer, decompile, disassemble, display, perform, prepare derivative works based on, or otherwise modify the Software, in whole or in part;
According to the new terms of service, unless there is a change in Rockstar’s EULA, the Grand theft Auto V modding scene, one of the biggest sell-points for the PC version, is not allowed to take off, effectively forcing players to choose between modding their game or the ability to play online.

  • The free Windows 10 upgrade is really a 'promotional activity' - Microsoft may be offering a free upgrade to Windows 10 for consumers who own a Windows 7 or 8.1 PC. However, for accounting purposes, the company is labeling this generous deal as a "marketing and promotional activity" in order to avoid a situation that would have normally forced Microsoft to defer revenues from the Windows division in their quarterly financial results. Meanwhile Windows 7 is still the reigning champ of all operating systems for the 14th month in a row. In what has to be an embarrassment to Microsoft, Windows XP is still in the number two position, followed meekly by Windows 8.1, at a dismal third.
  • R.I.P., Windows Media Center - Media Center will not be included in the Windows 10 rollout this summer and will not be offered as an add-on, according to a Microsoft executive
  • Microsoft invites Android and iOS apps to join Windows 10 - Microsoft's Terry Myerson confirmed onstage at Build what many of us suspected in the hours leading up to the event -- the company's going to make it easier for developers to bring Android apps into the Windows Store. To make this possible, Myers said, Windows phones "will include an Android subsystem" meant to play nice with the Java and C++ code developers have already crafted to run on a rival's operating system. Turns out, that's not the only dev-friendly coup we're seeing today: iOS developers can compile their Objective C code right from Microsoft's Visual Studio, and turn it into a full-fledged Windows 10 app. This, frankly, is huge. With one announcement, drawn out of the course of a few minutes, Microsoft may have just changed its mobile trajectory completely.
  • Apple Watch Costs Under $85 To Make - That shiny new Apple Watch Sport may have set you back $350, but from a hardware and manufacturing standpoint it only cost Apple $83.70. According to a teardown carried out by IHS Technology the actual hardware costs of the 38mm Apple Watch Sport are only about 24 percent of the manufacturer's suggested retail price, giving it the lowest hardware costs compared to retail price of any Apple product. The most expensive component is the LG display, which is estimated to cost $20.50, while the processor adds $10.20 and the memory a further $7.20. That tiny battery is estimated to cost a mere $0.80, with the contents of the box - which includes a charger and spare wristband - adding $9.00 to the cost.
  • Elon Musk lays out vision for a battery-powered future - Tesla may be best known for its electric cars, but founder Elon Musk has broader ambitions for the company's battery packs. Last night, the would-be battery baron unveiled his vision. Operating under the umbrella of Tesla Energy, Musk wants to use Tesla's battery technology to help improve the viability of solar power and other renewable energy generation methods.
  • Tesla announces Powerwall, a home battery system starting at $3,000 - s part of a new product line called Tesla Energy, the Powerwall is a battery system that can be installed on the inside or outside of your home. It's designed to be paired with solar panels, charging during the day when solar energy is the highest but usage is relatively low, and then discharging during the night or morning. The Powerwall helps create a sustainable home, as it balances out the load on the power grid throughout the day, reducing consumption during peak periods, which in turn helps curb carbon emissions. It also can save a home owner money, as the Powerwall can charge during off-peak times at a lower cost, and then deliver off-grid power to your house during the more expensive peak periods.  The entry level Powerwall is a 7 kWh unit that will cost $3,000, but there's also a 10 kWh model available for $3,500 (plus installation costs). The units are around six inches thick, four feet tall, and three feet wide. All units will come with a 10 year warranty, and better yet, up to nine units can be stacked together to create a battery as large as 90 kWh. A business-grade battery called the Powerpack will also be available, which will start at 100 kWh and scale "infinitely" to power packs beyond a gigawatt-hour.
  • Stephen Hawking on One Direction (Ideas at the House) - Stephen Hawking answers the important questions on stage at Sydney Opera House: "What is the cosmic effect on the universe of Zayn Malik leaving One Direction?"
  • NASA One Step Closer to Warp Drive? - NASA looks to be getting closer to developing a faster than light drive to power future spacecraft to other planets in relative short time spans and even interstellar travel to explore other stars systems. The drive doesn’t run on Dilithium Crystals or anything as exotic as Star Trek's warp propulsion systems, it’s just a hopped-up electromagnetic drive that will be powered by a on-board nuclear reactor on steroids
  • Highlights From Blue Origin's Rocket Launch - Highlights from Blue Origin's New Shepard space vehicle as it makes its first developmental test flight.
  • Acoustic Levitation in Ultra Slow Motion - The cascading drop explosions reminds me of the movie Gravity.
  • How to control someone else's arm with your brain - Greg Gage is on a mission to make brain science accessible to all. In this fun, kind of creepy demo, the neuroscientist and TED Senior Fellow uses a simple, inexpensive DIY kit to take away the free will of an audience member. It's not a parlor trick; it actually works. You have to see it to believe it.
  • How To Break Open Any Master Combo Lock In 8 Tries Or Less - This online tool and new technique will allow you to learn the combination of any Master combo lock with only eight attempts maximum.
  • 2016 Cadillac CTS V 640 HP Top Speed of 200 mph - Cadillac has announced pricing for the 640-horsepower CTS-V, and not only will the new super-sedan outgun its heartiest German rivals, it'll undercut them on price, too. Kicking off at $83,995 (not including a $995 destination charge), the CTS-V is nearly $10,000 less than the 560-hp BMW M5, almost $18,000 less than the 577-hp Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG S 4Matic, and is nearly $25,000 less than the 560-hp Audi RS7.

By all accounts, it is the first time that a drone has been deployed for a major act of public vandalism.

Black Mesa - Mysterious Countdown Timer Appears - briefly
(hx) 04:28 AM EDT - May,02 2015 - Post a comment
When Black Mesa was released, it was always with the intention of a 'complete' version being released on Steam, while the older version remained free. At least, that's the info from the game/mod project's own website: "The first of two releases of Black Mesa is currently available free for download. This release includes over 8 hours and 14 chapters of gameplay. The final release, via Steam, is under development." The new version is expected to feature the missing levels from the original Black Mesa release. Now, a mysterious countdown timer appeared on Black Mesa's official website. The counter seems to indicate that in three days time there will be some kind of reveal which could well be an actual release for the Steam version. Or possibly an announcement of that release date. There is, of course, also the possibility that it's something else entirely

According to its source code, the timer is counting down to the 05/05/15 8:47:00 GMT-6.

Male characters in The Sims 4 are getting pregnant - briefly
(hx) 05:51 PM EDT - May,01 2015 - Post a comment
Male characters are reportedly getting pregnant in The Sims 4 due to an in-game bug, which was apparently triggered after the "Get To Work" expansion pack was released in late March. While this first expansion was intended to include only aliens, new careers and workplaces, it also introduced the aforementioned glitch.
Male and female sims can get pregnant from abduction. I assumed I'd have to find the aliens through the science career, but they found me first one night while my sim was working on his rocket. lol A day after his return he had an upset tummy moodlet, and things went crazy after that. He gave birth to an adorable alien boy a few days later. ;) Here are a few screenshots for you!
As a result, Electronic Arts reduced the number of alien abductions and stamped out male pregnancies as well - or so they believed. Players are now reporting that male characters in the game are being impregnated without alien interference. Simmers say that now their pregnant male characters are always hungry, glitter explodes from their bellies as the bump grows, and they look "distressed" and "confused", to say the least ;-)
