Battlefield: Hardline Coming March 17th - briefly
(hx) 02:32 AM EDT - Oct,29 2014 - Post a comment
Electronic Arts has announced the release windows for Battlefield: Hardline, Star Wars: Battlefront and the next Battlefield game. According to the big publisher, Battlefield: Hardline is expected to hit stores in March 17th, 2015. On the other hand, the release windows for both Star Wars: Battlefront and the next major Battlefield game are Holiday 2015 and Holiday 2016, respectively.
In a crime drama filled single player story, Miami is embroiled in a drug war and officer Nick Mendoza has just made detective. Alongside his partner, veteran detective Khai Minh Dao, he follows the drug supply chain from the streets to the source. In a series of increasingly off-the-books cases the two detectives come to realize that power and corruption can affect both sides of the law.

In multiplayer, the world is simple. You're on one side of the law or the other - a baton or bat, stun gun or rifle, armored police truck or powerful muscle cars. But either way, teamwork is going to be essential if you're going to want to pull off that perfect heist or big time bust in this new take on Battlefield multiplayer.

Live out your fantasy of being a cop and criminal. Pre-order now here.

Hit the streets of Battlefield Hardline March 17, 2015 on PlayStation4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC.
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare-Season Pass Trailer - briefly
(hx) 02:24 AM EDT - Oct,29 2014 - Post a comment
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare publisher Activision announced the game's season pass today, releasing a trailer that shows off a bonus multiplayer map included in the package. The season pass comes with four add-ons - Havoc, Ascendance, Supremacy and Reckoning - for $50, which represents a $10 savings over buying each $15 DLC pack individually. Customers who purchase the season pass will receive instant access to an additional multiplayer map, Atlas Gorge, which is featured in today's trailer. The season pass also offers early access to bonus DLC weapons. Havoc, the first DLC pack for Advanced Warfare, is scheduled to be available in January on Xbox 360 and Xbox One. As usual, all Advanced Warfare DLC will arrive first on Xbox platforms; the content has traditionally been released about a month afterward on PlayStation and Windows PC.

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is set for release Nov. 4 on PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.

TechNews - Windows 7 sales end this Friday - tech
(hx) 06:21 PM EDT - Oct,28 2014 - Post a comment
  • Office 365 Subscribers Now Get Unlimited Cloud Storage - Microsoft has added unlimited One Drive cloud storage for Office 365 subscribers.
  • The clock on most Windows 7 OEM sales runs out this week - At the end of this month, Microsoft will pull the plug on the sales of Windows 7 licenses to OEMs for most versions of the OS. What this means is that vendors, such as HP and Dell, can no longer buy the licence keys from Microsoft for the OS, but they will still be able to sell through their existing stock. So, on November 1st, Windows 7 machines wont disappear completely but they will quickly become much harder to find. For Dell and HP, this is not good news as both companies are still pushing the five-year-old OS with promotions and prominent placing on their websites. As you can see in the images in this post, HP and Dell are still attracting enough customers who want Windows 7 to warrant placing links that are highly visible on their websites.
  • Researchers upgrade fiber tech to transmit data at 255 Terabits/s - Researchers at the Eindhoven University of Technology and the University of Central Florida have successfully transmitted data over a new type of fiber at a blistering speed of 255 Terabits per second. The new fiber consists of 7 cores as supposed to the 1 core that standard, state-of-the-art, fibers currently carry. Furthermore, the researchers also implemented two additional "orthogonal dimensions" for data transmission, which is purportedly similar to having 3 cars driving on top of each other. These two methods in turn help to deliver 21 times more bandwidth than the 4-8 Terabits per second of current fiber technology.
  • AT&T ruins Apple SIM by locking it to their carrier - The Apple SIM concept wasn't exactly revolutionary, but it was a pretty great introduction of the technology. The concept is fairly simple: there are a lot of different carriers out there, and rather than buying a SIM card locked down to a specific carrier, you should be able to change your carrier and retain your SIM card. Great right? Unfortunately, it seems that AT&T was unhappy with this level of freedom. The CEO of T-Mobile, John Legere, posted a series of photos on Twitter showing that once a user selects AT&T as their carrier, they can never change it to something else. This effectively turns the Apple SIM into an AT&T SIM card, and ruining a fairly interesting element of Apple SIM. The device itself isn't locked-- you can get a new Apple or carrier SIM and keep using it as you normally would, but the SIM card itself is locked at that point.
  • Apple Watch to iPhone home screen prototype - The inspiration for the project started when programmer Lucas Menge, read an article about modernizing the iOS home home screen by utilizing the design language from the Apple Watch. The result, although only a prototype, is fairly impressive. The iOS home screen has been completely changed to reflect the interface that is found on the Apple Watch. The icons span edge to edge, making better use of the screen real estate. Menge has also made navigation a bit simpler by adding a function that will allow you to zoom in and out of the icon map just by tapping in the corresponding section or tapping a blank area.
  • Apple iPhone 6 Plus Crushed By A Tank - The chaps over at TechRax traveled to Tank Town USA to crush an iPhone 6 Plus by driving a tank over it. And they ended up crushing two iPhone 6 Plus units as the guy who was doing the recording forgot to hit the record button during their first attempt
  • Sony XPERIA Z3 Burger on fire! - Some folks are placing a Sony Xperia Z3 inside the patty of a burger and grilling it to test the device's heat resistance. It's a very dangerous experiment as the phone's battery can overheat and explode. But it doesn't explode and the handset also survives the test. In the end, the device's display appears to be working fine. The screen was greasy as it was inside the burger; maybe they can give it a hot bath to remove the fat.
  • Samsung Galaxy Note 4 TV ads focus on the S-Pen and camera - Samsung has been busy promoting its new Galaxy Note 4 with recent short and long form TV ads. Now the company has released two more commercials for the recently launched 5.7-inch smartphone.
  • One-on-One with Elon Musk - MIT AeroAstro Centennial Symposium - The high point of the MIT Aeronautics and Astronautics Department's 2014 Centennial celebration is the October 22-24 Centennial Symposium featuring some of the most illustrious names in aerospace reflecting on past achievement, celebrating today's innovative research and education, and offering their perspectives on what lies ahead.
  • Robots to fly planes where humans can't  - Researchers in South Korea are developing a robotic pilot that could potentially replace humans in the cockpit. Unlike drones and autopilot programs which are configured for specific aircraft, the robots' humanoid design will allow it to fly any type of plane with no additional sensors. Ben Gruber reports.
  • Littlefinger (Game Of Thrones) Stars In Sci-Fi Short Film - check it out
  • The Most Epic Safety Video Ever Made - Released by Air New Zealand, this one cleverly cashes in on the Hobbit obsession and has been released in time before the final film of the trilogy. The instructional video features Elijah Wood, Peter Jackson, orcs, wizards, a shiny ring and nearly everyone else you'll spot in Middle Earth. This one also sports cameos by Dean O'Gorman and Sylvester McCoy and was shot in places that hosted the trilogy, including Hamilton and Central Otago.
  • Lincoln Ads - Saturday Night Live - Matthew McConaughey (Jim Carrey) ponders the important questions in life and takes Allstate spokesman Dennis Haysbert (Kenan Thompson) for a ride in a new set of commercials.
  • 'Thriller' Covered In 20 Different Styles - Ten Second Songs is ready for Halloween. Are you?
  • When Mom Isn't Home -"Son, I burned dinner, but instead we're gonna order pizza and do this."

The Old City: Leviathan - Trailer - movie
(hx) 02:38 PM EDT - Oct,27 2014 - Post a comment / read (1)
The Old City: Leviathan is an experiment in first person exploration that focuses entirely on story.

Everything else is secondary. All that exists is you and the world. Set in a decaying city from a civilization long past, The Old City: Leviathan puts the player in the shoes of a sewer dwelling isolationist. You progress through the narrative by simply exploring the world. The story itself is told via the musings of your character and, chiefly, the environment itself. This environment has been designed to be diverse, interesting, and meaningful to the narrative of the game. Our nameless protagonist's perspective has been unfolded before you in the form of a visualized landscape of ideas painting his universe and dreams painting his mind.

The objective is to understand. The story of The Old City: Leviathan is not told in a traditional manner. As you progress through the narrative, you will overhear a conversation between two entities. The first entity is the nameless character you are controlling who communicates through a monologue. The second entity is the depths of the environment, details and all. Your task is to piece together the narrative as if you are jumping into a conversation with no context. The more you explore, the more you will potentially understand.
