  • Beastly Next-Gen DDR5 To Offer Twice The Bandwidth And Density Of DDR4 Memory - DDR5 is going to be two times faster than DDR4, and of course more power-efficient (which should come in handy for mobile devices). The current highest clock JEDEC allows before "overclocking" takes over is DDR4-2400, with timings ranging from 15~18 for the CAS latency, as well as tRCD, and tRP. If DDR5 is to be "twice as fast", that could imply that we could end up seeing DDR5-4800, or perhaps a safer 4266 (twice the standard 2133MHz). If that somehow doesn't sound impressive, consider the fact that DDR4-4266 are the fastest kits sold today, and they're far from common.
  • Dell's Jaw-Dropping 8K Monitor Now Available to Order - Dell's exquisitely detailed UltraSharp 32 8K monitor is now up for grabs - if you just so happen to have a spare $5,000 lying around, that is. Now on sale direct from Dell, the (decidedly unsexy sounding) UP3218K may cost an arm and a leg (and another leg), but it promises an insane amount of detail and excellent color accuracy. The display itself is packed inside of a relatively staid exterior typical of Dell monitors. At 31.5 inches, the 7680x4320 resolution comes out to 280ppi. Aside from packing a crazy 33.2 million pixels into that space, Dell is touting the UP3218K color accuracy as one of its strong points.
  • Orange Pi 2G-IoT Matches Raspberry Pi Zero W’s $10 Price - Just over a month ago, Raspberry Pi upgraded its Zero with 802.11n and Bluetooth 4.0 wireless connectivity, dubbing it the Zero W. This new wireless functionality came with an added cost, doubling the price of the computing board from $5 to $10. Not to be outdone, Chinese company Orange Pi has come out with its own counter to the Raspberry Pi Zero W. The Orange Pi 2G-IoT incorporates 802.11n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 2.1, but it goes one step further by providing a 2G radio for cellular connectivity. The 2G radio supports GSM/GPRS data connections, and there is a SIM card slot on the underside of the board. Other features include an RDA Micro 8810PL ARM Cortex A5 32-bit processor running at 1GHz, 256MB of RAM, a Vivante GC860 GPU and 512MB of onboard NAND storage. External storage is supported by a microSD slot and you'll find a single USB 2.0 port. You'll also find a camera connector, 40-pin GPIO connector, which is compatible with Raspberry Pi accessories.
  • "Windows 10 Destroyed Our Data!" Microsoft Hauled into US Court - Three people in Illinois have filed a lawsuit against Microsoft, claiming that its Windows 10 update destroyed their data and damaged their computers. The complaint charges that Microsoft Windows 10 is a defective product and that its maker failed to provide adequate warning about the potential risks posed by Windows 10 installation – specifically system stability and data loss. Microsoft "failed to exercise reasonable care in designing, formulating, and manufacturing the Windows 10 upgrade and placing it into the stream of commerce," the complaint claims. "As a result of its failure to exercise reasonable care, [the company] distributed an operating system that was liable to cause loss of data or damage to hardware."
  • Crazy Game Controller Manufacturer Mad Catz Files For Bankruptcy After Decades Of Innovation - So what happened? Three words: Rock Band 4. Mad Catz announced in 2015 that it would co-publish Rock Band 4 along with Harmonix and produce the controllers for it. Under the agreement, Mad Catz was in charge of pretty much everything but digital sales and content. Unfortunately, Mad Catz may have put too many eggs in one basket. The game did not do as well as anticipated, and the company was forced to lay off 37% of its workforce in February 2016. (PR)
  • Why Did Old PCs Have Key Locks?  - Retro computer cases often had a locking mechanism, complete with a key that came with the machine. But what exactly did these do, where did they come from, and why aren't they so commonplace anymore?
  • DoubleAgent Zero-Day Attacking Norton Antivirus - Security researchers at Cybellum have identified a Zero-Day attack that grants full control over many Antivirus solutions on the market today. Born from the ashes of a 15 year old Microsoft tool, Cybellum has named this attack "Double Agent". Double Agent uses Microsoft's fairly ancient "MS Application Verifier" to infiltrate it's victims.
  • Apple Patches 911 Bug Via iOS 10.3 - Apple this week distributed iOS 10.3 and with it a plug for a serious vulnerability that impacted 911 call centers. Last fall, an Arizona man created code that forced iPhones to call 911 over and over. The code, which appeared as a link, spread via Twitter and it was later shared as a prank. The results led to thousands of unintentional calls to 911 centers is some 12 states around the country. Some of those call centers were overwhelmed. The exploit only impacted iPhones and did not cause problems for Android devices. The person who wrote the code was arrested and charged with computer tampering. Apple said iOS 10.3 prevents the accidental 911 calls from connecting by requiring a second confirmation press before dialing calls initiated via links. Apple is working with developers that include phone-making functionalities within their own apps to ensure the fix is universal.
  • Galaxy S8 Facial Recognition can be Bypassed With a Photo - If you plan on getting one of those sharp looking new Samsung Galaxy S8 phones, you might want to think twice before utilizing the face unlock feature. iDeviceHelp has posted a video on YouTube showing that the face unlock feature can me fooled with a picture. 
  • Apple Responds to Hacker's Threat to Wipe Millions of iPhones - It was reported on Tuesday that a hacker group claimed access to as many as 559 million Apple email and iCloud login credentials, which they threatened to wipe unless Infinite Loop would pay them $75,000 in cryptocurrency or $100,000 worth of iTunes gift cards. Apple claims it is all total BS
  • Over 15,000 Fraudulent PayPal Certificates Issued to Phishing Sites - Let's Encrypt was launched publicly in December of 2015 under the premise that websites would be encrypted and served to the end user over Transport Layer Security (TLS). The thought was that TLS would protect user data from pilfering. Many Cyber Security experts expressed fear that these free certificates would be abused as the issuance processes are automated. These fears were realized when encryption pro Vincent Lynch confirmed that 96.7% of the 15,270 security certificates including the term "Paypal" were issued to illegal phishing sites.
  • Apple Announces (Product) Red iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus - Apple today debuted Red versions of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. The devices are identical to the iPhones released last year, the only difference is the color. A portion of the proceeds from (Product) Red iPhone sales will contribute to the Global Fund to help fight AIDs. The red-colored iPhones will only be available in 128 GB and 256 GB capacities. The 128 GB (Product) Red iPhone 7 costs $749 and the 128 GB (Product) Red iPhone 7 Plus costs $869. The special edition (Product) Red iPhones will be available online and in stores beginning Friday, March 24. In addition, Apple today gave the iPhone SE a modest update thanks to improved storage capacities. Beginning this week, the iPhone SE will be available in 32 GB and 128 GB versions. These replace the 16 GB and 64 GB models. The refreshed 32 GB iPhone SE starts at $399 and will be available online and in stores starting March 24. Other than the storage boost, the iPhone SE's other specs remain unchanged. Apple first released the iPhone SE about this same time last year. It has a 4-inch display and relies on the same design Apple used for the 2012 iPhone 5 and 2013 iPhone 5s.
  • Want a Black Screen on Your Red iPhone 7? - JerryRigEverything has posted a video on how he swapped his, but the phone is no longer waterproof and it keeps the ugly white button, which is actually necessary if you want to retain Touch ID functionality.
  • Apple Releases iOS 10.3 to Everyone - Apple today made iOS 10.3 available to the public after several months of beta testing. The most significant feature of iOS 10.3 is a tool called Find My AirPods, which helps people locate lost earbuds via an audio alert. The system update also adopts the Apple File System, refreshes the Apple ID profile behaviors, tweaks animations, and provides more details concerning iCloud storage use. Other features include wider HomeKit compatibility with connected lightswitches, alerts concerning out-of-date apps, more CarPlay actions, and refined SiriKit behaviors for voice-based payments and other activities. People who own an iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch can download and install iOS 10.3 for free. Apple also released final, public builds of watchOS 3.2, tvOS 10.2, OS X Sierra 10.12.4, and Xcode 8.3.
  • Google Gives Developers An Early Look at Android O - Google today announced the first preview of Android O, the unnamed next version of its core mobile operating system. This early version of Android O brings with it a handful of new features that clearly target developers and device makers more so than end users. The primary consumer-facing function is a picture-in-picture viewer for Android phones (this feature is already available to Android tablets). Developers will be able to take advantage of a new background limiter, which can control how much power apps are allowed to consume when running in the background. Android O takes a new stab a notifications with what it calls notification channels. These will let users manage which types of notifications are allowed from individual apps, including new visual groupings that make it easier to see what's going on. The new Autofill API will let developers of apps such as password managers choose autofill defaults across keyboards. Adaptive icons for the home screen will automatically change based on system preferences so they can adapt to different phones and user interfaces. Android O adds new support for Bluetooth audio codecs, such as Sony's LDAC codec. Other features include: in-app pinning of shortcuts and widgets; support for Wi-Fi Aware; XML fonts; wide-gamut color apps; new WebView APIs; expanded accessibility options; improved support for multiple displays; and changes to the MediaPlayer, including new support for the MPEG2_TS codec for media streaming. Developers can install this first Android O preview on their Pixel, Pixel XL, Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X, Pixel C, and Nexus Player, but will have to do so manually via their computer. Google says Android O will see at least one more developer preview before the company releases a consumer beta of the operating system. Google didn't suggest when the final version of Android O might be ready, but it typically releases new Android operating systems in the fall.
  • Samsung's Bixby Is Far More than A Voice Assistant for the Galaxy - The Galaxy S8 and S8+ smartphones feature Bixby, a voice-based user interface developed by Samsung. It's more advanced than a simple voice assistant, as it voice-enables every function of an app. At its core, anything you can do with touch on the phone you can do with voice through Bixby. That means opening apps, but then also selecting menu items or other on-screen controls within those apps. Bixby is also able to take advantage of the camera for what Samsung calls Bixby Vision. It can translate languages, read business cards, recognize landmarks, and read QR codes. Samsung said it developed Bixby in order to minimize friction between the user and the phone in terms of how voice commands are issued and understood. Samsung calls Bixby a user interface that relies on artificial intelligence. Samsung adapted Bixby's ability to listen and understand commands based on how people speak, rather than force people to issue specific commands. Bixby embraces something it calls "completeness" - meaning if an app is Bixby enabled, Bixby will be able to interact with nearly every task that app is capable of completing. Bixby is contextual, which means it will work seamlessly in voice mode or touch screen mode without forcing people to start over or lose their place within a command sequence. Last, Bixby will include cognitive tolerance, or the ability to "understand commands with incomplete information and execute the commanded task to the best of its knowledge." The Galaxy S8 and S8+ each include a dedicated Bixby button. Owners can press the Bixby button and issue the command they want without first unlocking the phone. Samsung says a small subset of apps on the Galaxy S8 are Bixby-enabeld at launch, though it expects to add more over time. The company will release an SDK so third-party developers can add Bixby functionality to their own apps
  • HTC can Track Eye Movement in VR - HTC has devised a new system where companies can place advertising in VR applications and then HTC can track your interest in the advertisement. If your gaze leaves the advertisement such as you intentionally looking away, the advertiser doesn't have to pay for the placement.
  • Twitch Adds 1080p/60fps Video Support - Twitch.tv has added 1080p/60fps streaming capabilities to their service by increasing the allowed ingest bitrate to 6000 kbps. This will allow for much more fluid video playback on channels where it has been enabled. Those channels will have lower bitrate options also! It is coming to all of Twitch in the coming weeks, but for now they are rolling it out slowly to a few channels. To test and see if your channel supports the new higher bitrate formats, visit Twitch Inspector and see if your channel supports "Transcode V2." If so then you're ready to test the higher bitrates and increased quality streams
  • Facebook Messenger Adds Message Reactions and @Replies - Facebook has announced several new features for Messenger that should make the messaging application even more interactive. First, the app adds the ability to react to messages in one-on-one or group chats. Pressing and holding any message brings up the love, smile, wow, sad, angry, yes, and no emojis, which can then be applied to the highlighted message. These same reactions are already available for news feed items. Participants in the conversation will be alerted when their messages receive a reaction, such as notifications on the lock screen. Messenger also gains the ability to mention specific people in a group chat by using an @reply construction. Using the @ symbol and then a participant's Facebook name calls them out specifically within a conversation. Like the reactions, @replies added to messages will generate notifications for those mentioned in the thread. The new tools are reaching Facebook Messenger for Android and iOS in the days ahead.
  • AMC is working on streaming subscription service -AMC is planning to launch a streaming subscription service that would offer commercial-free access to the network's catalog of hit shows including The Walking Dead, Better Call Saul and Breaking Bad. Unlike most standalone offerings that can be used by anyone willing to pay, AMC's offering will reportedly be available exclusively to cable and satellite TV subscribers. What's more, it won't be cheap. Sources familiar with the matter tell Reuters that AMC is considering pricing the subscription service between $4.99 and $6.99 per month.
  • Amazon Prime Air MARS 2017 - This video could have used a couple of buckshots to make things more interesting, but here is footage of the first Amazon package publicly delivered by drone in the US. Does this mean that Prime Air is ready to roll out? Definitely not, since most drone deliveries can't work with current FAA rules—they need to be kept within line of sight of the operator at all times.
  • Norway Wants to Build the World’s First Full-Scale Ship Tunnel - The Stad Penninsula in Norway has one of the most dangerous coastlines in the region. As the meeting place between the Norwegian Sea and North Sea, the turbulent waters have claimed the lives of dozens sailors over the last several decades. Which may explain why Norway's top coastal agency wants to dig a $272 million, mile-long "ship tunnel" to create a safer passage for commercial vessels. Designed to accommodate ships as massive as Norway's Hurtigruten cruise vessels, the tunnel would be nearly 150 feet tall, 118 feet wide, and more than a mile long. The Norwegian Parliament earmarked one billion Norwegian kroner, or around $118 million, for the project in the National Transport Plan for 2014-2023. Construction is set to begin as early as 2018.

defamation?

at least two my customers lost all data after force upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10

In my experiance upgrading around 100 PC's to Windows 10 from 7, around 25% of the Windows 10 upgrades completed succesfully, but were left with a half-working operating system afterwards.

Of course, the loss of data may not be entirely Microsoft's fault, but it is at least in part. Additionally if the upgrade caused the machine to be non-functional then no amount of backups will fix that for non-technically minded users. So it would absolutely be Microsoft's fault that the user had to pay for a tech guy to fix it for them (potentially putting them back on the previous OS and inadvertently causing another forced upgrade).

When you have such a colossal install base, pushing out mandatory forced updates is a really bad idea and you shouldn't be surprised when you break/delete stuff by accident, and you absolutely should be prepared to take at least some of the blame when that happens.

There was more than plenty ways to safeguard your data, and you can always opt out.

I've performed hundreds of installs, no problem, including upgrades to Pro and Enterprise. Colleagues have too.

@Tom
Since MS forced the update on more or less everyone and you can't buy new PCs without Windows 10, that's not very surprising.
Also, many people don't bother downgrading even though that's included in their licenses.
But these things do not make WinDOS 10 a better OS.
It's looking fancy and comes with new stuff, but that's not what makes me tick at least.

You're making excuses for idiots. :roll:

Win10 is a stable/usable OS and people are switching to it. I have yet to have a single problem myself and all my PC's at home run it. Really not a single thing I can come up with off the top of my head that's negative. And all my old software that was there when it was Win7 and Vista before that, ALL work.

I performed millions of installs, all failed.

joking aside: No you didn't. Few years ago you told us in some topic what do you do for a living, and all I remember was that it was nothing to do with IT. I also remember that you are an older man, with wife/kids/etc.
It should be beneath you to lie like that...

even if we put that aside, there are problems with win 10. Especially the 64bit one. Sure, everything that I have, you have and every tech savy person has, will most likely work. However, there are businesses that have some older tech that works fine on win 7 but doesn't work in win 10 because no driver that works (and compatibility mode solves nothing). If they refuse to pay for updating a lot of PCs with newer hardware and go through all the shit involved with it, the most sensible solution is to go back to windows 7. Hence the included "revert to windows 7" option provided by Microsoft themselves. Why would they provide that if "There are no issues" ? >.<

Umm ok :roll:, I have actually, both on physical and VM's, as our IT team is small I provided assistance and contributed to company wide upgrades. 90% of those were upgrades. IT is a BIG field there. I've also built a few PC's in recent months for people, all Win10 Home.

I use Win10 on 3 machines everyday at work on a name brand PC's as well as various lab machines and I have 4 PC's at home with Home and Pro. Sorry, I have no problems and never have. The ONLY thing that pisses me off about Win10 is that, at least for now, I lost 2 licenses that were from Win7 upgrades. Didn't know you could add these to your digital inventory on MS. I can get licenses for ~$30, really who cares?!

As for old hardware, I have an old HD dock used for cloning, uses Firewire, it works with actually built in drivers. I have a scanner I use for digitizing old media, prints, connects via a serial cable of all things. Works with the Win7 driver, installed manually. I have an ancient old laser B/W HP that works on a parallel port. Also works with built in MS drivers. Sure if you PC is F'ing ancient you might run into issues.

Ya you are right, I am an older person and with wife/kids and dog.

And to be honest, I grow tired of working with PC's, I prefer to code now these days but you know, you can never get away from it.

Csimbi(06:05 PM EDT - Apr,03 2017 )
Sounds like you are getting there ;-)
I got bored with PC building a decade ago and with coding about 5 years ago.

Tom(02:30 PM EDT - Apr,05 2017 )
Disappointed by Mad Catz though, these guys made good devices over the years, most notable gamepads, mice, keyboards aka Saitek. Looks like the top-heads saw it coming and jumped ship asap.
