Weekend game, movie, hardware deals - briefly

Here's a selection of this weekend's PC / Blue-ray movies, hardware deals. The best monster slaying series on PC is up to 85% off at GOG.com until June 1. And wouldn't you know it, The Witcher 3's second expansion, Blood and Wine, releases May 31- rather convenient for the thrifty witcher. As you'd expect, the biggest discounts are on the back catalogue. The Witcher 1 and The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings get the full 85% discount. So does The Witcher Adventure Game, the digital adaptation of The Witcher Board Game. The Witcher 3 has a smaller but substantial 50% markdown. If you're binging, The Witcher 3 and its expansions together get 33% off. And finally, if you just want a good deal on either expansion, Hearts of Stone and Blood and Wine can be bought separately at 10% below RRP. I'll let you penny-pinchers in on a secret though - Blood and Wine is actually 10p cheaper on Steam.

  • The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Preview: A Look at What's to Come - Looking at the raw specifications then, GTX 1080 does not disappoint. Though we're looking at fewer CUDA cores than the GM200 based GTX 980 Ti or Titan, NVIDIA’s significant focus on clockspeed means that GP104's 2560 CUDA cores are far more performant than a simple core count would suggest. The base clockspeed of 1607MHz is some 42% higher than GTX 980 (and 60% higher than GTX 980 Ti), and the 1733MHz boost clockspeed is a similar gain. On paper, GTX 1080 is set to offer 78% better performance than GTX 980, and 47% better performance than GTX 980 Ti. The real world gains are, of course, not quite this great, but they’re also relatively close to these numbers at times.
  • NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Founders Edition Review - The GTX 1080 is packing 8GB of ridiculously fast GDDR5X memory and a core that just thumps down an impressive FPS performance that is needed to deliver great gameplay in today's ever more visually appealing games. All while running the eye candy turned way up even when running at 4K. There really is no performance comparison at this time that comes close. Even the Maxwell-based fastest cards on the planet pale in comparison to the GTX 1080.
  • Microsoft releases update rollup for Windows 7 SP1 - Microsoft has released an update rollup for Windows 7 Service Pack 1 and Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 that it's calling a "convenience rollup." Since this update roll-up includes almost all of the updates Microsoft has released since Service Pack 1 was released, it should simplify new Windows 7 installs. Unfortunately, the convenience rollup is only available through the Microsoft Update Catalog, a legacy website that doesn't support non-Internet Explorer browsers. Running Internet Explorer with ActiveX controls enabled is currently the only way to download the package.
  • Windows Malware Tries To Avoid 400 Security Products - The malware's name comes from Latin and means 'stealthy,' Yotam Gottesman, a Senior Security Researcher at enSilo explains, adding that the program goes through great lengths to avoid being caught by security parties: it includes checks for 400 security products. Should any of the products on this extensive list be found on the targeted machine, the malware terminates itself and leaves the computer unharmed.  Built to target Windows computers, the malware was first discovered by a researcher that goes by the name of @hFireF0X, who noticed that none of the 56 anti-virus programs tested by VirusTotal service detected the new threat. It's unclear who is behind the malware as of now, but it is clear that the actor would abort infection rather than being caught.  Furtim is deployed as a binary file named “native.dll,” which is a driver supposedly meant to be loaded by the kernel, researchers explain. The analyzed sample was 295 KB in size, was compiled on October 22, 2015, and came unpacked, although it did show protection mechanisms.
  • Google Shows Off YouTube VR App for Daydream - Google has announced YouTube VR, a version of YouTube dedicated to virtual reality. It will be among the first apps to support Daydream, Google's new VR platform for Android devices. YouTube says the VR app will support voice search, browsing/discovery, and playlists. Google says all YouTube content - whether captured in 360-degree/3D or not - will be available via YouTube VR. Google is working with content creators and camera makers to ensure that plenty of 360-degree content is available when the app launches. Google expects YouTube VR to arrive with Daydream in the fall. It will only work with Android phones. Google didn't say if YouTube VR will be compatible with other VR headsets, such as Gear VR or Oculus.
  • Android Apps Headed to Google's Chromebooks - Google has said its Chrome operating system will soon have access to the Google Play Store and the Android apps therein. ChromeOS will support all Android phone and tablet apps, including games, productivity apps, and social networking. Android apps can run in three different window sizes in ChromeOS and users will be able to move the windows around and multitask as needed. Keyboard, mouse, and touch input will all work together within Android apps, and Android-based notifications will be pushed to Chromebooks as well as phones. Moreover, users will be able share files seamlessly between Chrome and Android devices through a new Files app. Google says developers can add admin-level network support to their Android apps for Chrome so businesses and schools can control options such as Bluetooth and WiFi. Android games should run very well on Chromebooks, according to Google. Google Play for Chrome will be available to developers on the Asus Chromebook Flip, Acer Chromebook R 11, and the Chromebook Pixel with a wider launch expected later this year. Google says it will add support for Android apps to more Chromebooks over time. ChromeOS is Google's light-weight, browser-based operating system that runs on inexpensive laptops.
  • Apple releases iOS 9.3.2, OS X 10.11.5, watchOS 2.2.1, and tvOS - After a seemingly endless beta cycle, Apple has finally released iOS 9.3.2, OS X 10.11.5 El Capitan, watchOS 2.2.1, and tvOS 9.2.1 to all supported devices. As the version numbers indicate, there isn't any notable front-facing features in these updates. Instead, they focus on bug fixes and performance improvements.
  • Apple pulls iOS 9.3.2 for the 9.7" iPad Pro after bricking reports - Apple has pulled iOS version 9.3.2 for its 9.7" iPad Pro today after users reported that the update caused their devices to enter an unusable state. iMore's Rene Ritchie shared a Tweet with a statement from Apple that confirms the take-down. The problem reared its head as early as Tuesday, when Ritchie posted a statement from Apple indicating that iOS 9.3.2 was bricking a "small number" of customer iPads with an "Error 56" message. "Error 56" indicates a hardware error with the device. Affected users are told to attempt an iTunes restore to recover the device, but MacRumors reports that the recovery process enters into a boot loop where the device is never able to restore. Apple says affected users should contact its customer support team for assistance. This issue doesn't appear to affect any other Apple devices aside from the 9.7" iPad Pro.
  • Sprint Rolls Out BOGO Offer for the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus - Sprint today launched a buy one, get one free promotion for Apple's latest iPhones. The offer includes both the iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s Plus. Customers must have an eligible upgrade and initiate at least one new line of service in order to qualify for the offer. Sprint said customers may purchase the iPhones on a monthly installment plan, lease the iPhones, or lease one and buy the other. However customers choose to pay for the iPhones, the cost of the second handset will be offset by a service credit applied each month. Sprint is also offering to cut $200 from the price of the latest iPads for customers who buy a new iPhone and iPad together on an installment plan. Sprint didn't say how long the buy one, get one offer will be available. It has offered similar programs for the Samsung Galaxy S7 and LG G5 smartphones.
  • Sprint Packages 40GB Shared Plan with Amazon Prime  - Sprint today announced the Amazon Better Choice XXL plan, which includes 40GB of shareable LTE data and a year of Amazon Prime. Subscribers also get unlimited talk and text, Sprint Global Roaming, international texting, and mobile hotspot. The Amazon Better Choice XXL plan costs $100 per month, which does not include per-line access charges ($20) and monthly device payments. This plan, which is available to new and existing customers, requires subscribers to sign a one-year contract. Customers not interested in signing a contract can still choose to add Amazon Prime to their monthly bill for $10.99. Amazon Prime includes online storage for files and photos, as well as Amazon Music and Amazon Video streaming services, and expedited shipping on purchases made from Amazon.com.

Halo 5: Guardians Edition for Windows 10 Announced - briefly
(hx) 11:26 AM EDT - May,20 2016 - Post a comment / read (2)
Xbox LIVE's Major Nelson has the news that Microsoft is planning a Windows 10 version of Forge - Halo 5: Guardians Edition that will be completely free, and will include some new features specifically for the PC.
Today, we're excited to announce that we're bring this same spirit of creation and collaboration to the PC later this year with Forge – Halo 5: Guardians Edition for Windows 10. Best of all? It will be absolutely free. In addition to the evolutions already present in the mode on Xbox One, Forge – Halo 5: Guardians Edition for Windows 10 will include some exciting new features designed specifically with PC users in mind, including:

        Keyboard & Mouse Support – For the first time ever, Forgers will have the option of using a keyboard & mouse allowing for more precision control than ever before.
        Increased Resolution – Support for multiple resolutions including 4k.
        Test and Play with Friends – Enlist the help of Friends to help build, test, and play your Forge creations on Windows 10.
        Build on Windows 10 and Publish to Xbox One – Experiences built on Windows 10 can be published to and played on Xbox One, opening the doors for countless new experiences to be enjoyed by players all over the world.

If you're already finding yourself excited about the incredible possibilities that are opened up by expanding Forge to the Windows 10 platform, trust us, you're not alone. 343 Industries UGC Director, Tom French, and his team are already chomping at the bit to get these new creative tools into the hands of the community.

Since we released Forge in Halo 5 we've seen so many amazing new things come from it – from weird mini-games we could have never anticipated to meticulously crafted maps that are even approaching the visual quality of internally built maps. The team has continued to wonder what we'd get if we could put Forge in the hands of as many people as possible, and making it free on Windows 10 literally gives the chance to anyone who wants to jump in and try their hands at building a cool new map for Halo 5. I'm excited to see what the future content from the community will bring!” –Tom French, UGC Director, 343 Industries

We'll have a lot more to share about Forge – Halo 5: Guardians Edition on Windows 10 later this year, but look for even more exciting updates coming to the Forge experience in Halo 5: Guardians on the Xbox One in the coming months – including new environments, advanced file sharing capabilities, new pieces, palettes, props, and much more.

Google I/O 2016 - Keynote - tech
(hx) 05:36 PM EDT - May,18 2016 - Post a comment / read (3)
Google today outlined some of the new features in Google Play Services 9.0. Specifically, there are a handful of new APIs that will let developers add more functionality to their apps. For example, the Video Recording API will allow developers to add video recording the their own apps, as well as make those videos easy to share via YouTube or other apps. The updated Nearby API will let apps scan for nearby Bluetooth low energy beacons without additional permissions. This will give beacon owners (and the developers who wrote the apps for them) more leeway to send messages to Android devices as they roam near beacons. Play Services 9.0 makes changes to the Player Stats API, which lets developers gain more insight to gameplay, what actions gamers are likely to pursue, and whether or not they'll spend more money. In a related change, Play Services 9.0 makes improvements to how developers can integrate ads and ad campaigns into their apps. Google didn't say when Play Services will be distributed to end-user devices.
