Dungeons 3 Announced - briefly
(hx) 02:37 PM EST - Feb,21 2017 - Post a comment / read (1)
Kalypso Media announces Dungeons 3 is in development at Realmforge Studios for release this autumn. They say this will be the "biggest and best entry yet" in the dungeon creation series, and they are gearing up to show it off for the first time next week at GDC 2017 in San Francisco.
In Dungeons 3, the Dungeon Lord has successfully united the forces of evil and established the roots of his dark empire, leading him to the next step in his diabolical quest: expansion!

Through enticing the dark elf priestess Thalya from the fluffy clutches of the surface world to become his chief lieutenant, the Dungeon Lord has found a way to direct his campaign of conquest from the confines of his underground lair. With Thalya on the front line, and the united forces of evil to support her, players will have to use every trick in the book to best those do-gooders of the overworld, once and for all!

Unleash your dark side in Dungeons 3 by creating a unique underground dungeon from a huge array of rooms, traps and structures. Raise the most terrifying army the world has ever seen, by choosing from despicable creatures such as orcs, succubae, zombies and much, much more. Then, once you have built your forces, emerge from the darkness and guide your army to the light of the overworld, where you will corrupt the land and dispatch anything even vaguely heroic, cute or unicorn-shaped. And in a first for the Dungeons series, experience randomly generated levels, so that no two sessions are alike – never-ending fun for any evil conqueror!

Dungeons 3 is currently planned for an autumn 2017 release.

NieR Automata PC may be slightly delayed - briefly
(hx) 06:16 PM EST - Feb,20 2017 - Post a comment
While the PS4 version of NieR Automata is currently scheduled for a March 7th release, there is still no word for the release date of the game’s PC version. And from the looks of it, NieR Automata may be slightly delayed on the PC. In a recent stream, NieR Automata’s producer, Yosuke Saito, claimed that the Steam version of the game may be slightly delayed. While PlatinumGames is currently working on it, Yosuke Saito claimed that they (PlatinumGames and Square Enix) will have to do something about the piracy that plagues the PC platform. It will be interesting to see whether NieR Automata will be powered by Denuvo or not.

Corsair Bulldog V2.0 Build - tech
(hx) 06:08 PM EST - Feb,20 2017 - Post a comment
The Corsair Bulldog, version 2.0, is now shipping and upgrades the internal components to a Z270 motherboard and upgrade fans with improved noise profiles. Other than that, the Bulldog looks, style, form and function remain unchanged. The design is likely still dividing opinions; the short squat form factor with angular exterior will appeal to some, but the dimensions are perfectly suited to sitting in or around a TV and entertainment center. And because of the spacing and design of the interior, the mini ITX form factor can support any performance level of GPU and Intel's latest Kaby Lake processors. This gives users the flexibility to build for ultimate performance, making the dream of a 4K-ready gaming PC in the living room a possibility.

TechNews-How often do you replace your smartphone? - tech
(hx) 04:15 AM EST - Feb,19 2017 - Post a comment / read (7)
How often do you replace your smartphone? Are you the type that resides on the cutting edge of mobile technology or are you content to use a phone for at least a few years before upgrading? Perhaps you're accident-prone and find yourself buying a new smartphone more often than you'd like? FYI, I replace my smarphone maybe every 3, sometimes 4 years. It's not as though they're leaps and bounds ahead of the previous years predecessor so I see no point in replacing them very often. My first smartphones - HTC Touch HD and Samsung Galaxy Note 1 I replaced when they were too slow to use as internet and media device. Now I use my third one which is Samsung Note 3. I have this phone +3 years and I'm still happy with this phone especially after Samsung Note 7 fiasco. Whatever the case, feel free to share your preference in the comments section below!
  • Intel Core i3-7350K Review -The chip operates at a base clock rate of 4.2 GHz, similar to a Core i7-7700K. But it doesn't support Turbo Boost, though this isn't altogether disappointing given the unlocked multiplier. Intel shares 4MB of last-level cache across the die, yielding a ratio of 2MB per core, also like the higher-end models. And whereas the locked Core i3s are rated at 35W and 51W, the Core i3-7350K is the lone 60W SKU. Intel also re-introduced TSX-NI support, which can boost multi-threaded performance, to the i3 series.
  • GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Reportedly Launching in Late March - Nordic Hardware article includes a claim that the 1080 Ti is dropping by March 20. For those who are unaware, Nvidia is hosting their GeForce GTX Gaming Celebration at the end of February, and many are assuming they may divulge more information during this event.
  • For Honor: Graphics & CPU Performance (a total of 45 GPUs tested) - For those of you targeting 60fps at 1080p, the RX 470 or GTX 1060 3GB will be required. That said, aging weaponry such as the GTX 780 Ti and R9 290X provided strong performance here, pushing well over 60fps on average. In fact, using the extreme quality preset we find that For Honor is surprisingly GPU-friendly at 1080p. For a 50fps average, dated cards such as the Radeon HD 7950 Boost and GeForce GTX 680 hold up well. Moving to 1440p, you can forget about any sub-$150 offerings, in fact even the RX 470 struggles here using the extreme preset. The 3GB GTX 1060 takes a bit of a hit on the minimum frame rate and while not catastrophic it does fall clearly behind the 4GB RX 480.Mark Zuckerberg’s manifesto is a political trainwreck
  • Blizzard Dropping Windows XP and Vista - announces Blizzard will start dropping support for Windows XP and Windows Vista beginning later thins year
  • Google CEO writes back to girl, 7, who wants a job - Sundar Pichai has penned a letter back to a 7-year-old girl who wanted a job at Google after her dad advised her that the company's perks included bean bags and go karts.
  • Apple Backs Qi Wireless Charging Standard - Apple has joined the Wireless Power Consortium, according to IHS Technologies and the WPC's own web site. Apple is listed as a backing member of the organization, which is behind the Qi wireless charging standard. This is the first time Apple has appeared to support either of the two competing standards. Apple is not backing the AirFuel Alliance (formerly the Power Matters Alliance) wireless charging standard, at least not according to the Alliance's web site, where Apple is not listed as a member. Apple's membership in the WPC does not necessarily mean the company plans to bring wireless charging technology to its mobile devices; rather, it means Apple can contribute its own technology to the standard, as well as take advantage of the standard's existing feature set. Many of Apple's competitors already back at least one of the two major wireless charging standards. Samsung, for example, supports both Qi and AirFuel, which makes its devices compatible with most wireless chargers. Wireless charging is one of a handful of technologies that Apple's iPhone has yet to adopt.
  • Apple to begin manufacturing the iPhone SE in India this April - A report published by Reuters has revealed that the first iPhone to be manufactured in India will be the iPhone SE, one of its most affordable models. An earlier report from Indian publication The Economic Times had claimed that Apple is planning to assemble 300,000 to 400,000 units of the iPhone SE in India initially, but the Reuters report claims the actual number will be much lower. It is also not clear at this point if Apple will be assembling other iPhone models in the country, although a final decision will depend on the success of the initial iPhone SE production runs.
  • Google Home Gains Voice-Based Shopping to Compete with Amazon Echo - Google today added the ability to shop for certain goods to its voice-controlled Google Home speaker. Google says people can use Google Home to purchase everyday essentials from more than 50 national and local retailers. Some of the initial stores include Costco, Whole Foods Market, Walgreens, PetSmart, and Bed Bath & Beyond. Google Home owners need only say "Ok Google, how do I shop?" or "Ok Google, order paper towels" to get started. The Google Home app on the Google Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones allows Home owners to configure their default credit card, shipping address, and other settings before making their first purchase. Google says now through April 30, people who shop via Google Home won't be dinged with service or membership fees associated with its retail partners. Google expects to enable purchases from more apps and services over time.
  • Print security is often overlooked by IT - It's not that printers are bad, but a series of factors make them perfect targets for hackers.
  • New Xagent malware variant for macOS - Security researchers at antivirus software company Bitdefender have discovered a new variant of the Xagent malware that targets macOS and acts as a backdoor that can be customized depending on the objectives of an attack. Researchers traced similarities in the code that tied the malware variant to APT28, the hacking group accused of hacking into the U.S. Democratic National Committee last year. Bitdefender isn't entirely sure how the Mac version of Xagent is being distributed, but says it's likely planted on the system via a known macOS malware downloader called Komplex. Once installed, the backdoor checks for the presence of a debugger. If it detects one, it terminates itself to prevent execution. Otherwise, it waits for an Internet connection to communicate with the C&C servers. The Xagent payload includes modules capable of searching a target Mac's system configuration, offloading running processes and executing code. Capabilities include logging passwords, reading files, snapping pictures of screen displays, and stealing iOS backups stored on the compromised Mac.
  • Bill Gates thinks we might have to start taxing robots in the future - According to one report, over half the jobs done by humans today are vulnerable to being replaced by robots within just a few decades, all of which would represent over $15 trillion worth of wages worldwide that will not be taxed
  • Mark Zuckerberg's manifesto is a political trainwreck - Zuckerberg adds that he's thinking of creating "worldwide voting system" for Facebook users which could then be used as a template for how "collective decision-making may work in other aspects of the global community." That's a vague formulation. But coming on the heels of his comments about politicians with Facebook engagement, he sounds like he's floating the idea of turning Facebook into the infrastructure for managing elections.
  • Facebook videos will now auto-play with sound enabled by default - The auto-play functionality for videos on both mobile and desktops has been available for quite some time now. Previously, these videos auto-played with audio disabled, and you had to click on them to hear it. Users could also navigate to their settings to disable this feature. Now, Facebook has introduced a change which enables audio by default in auto-played videos. The company says that it experimented this change on some news feeds and received "positive feedback". That said, if your phone is on silent mode, the app will detect it as such and sounds will not be played for videos. However, if this is not the case, then the audio will play at the current media volume of the device. Thankfully, users also have the ability to toggle off this functionality altogether.
  • Facebook Video to Turn Up the Volume - Facebook is making several big changes to how it treats video on mobile devices. First, sound will fade in and fade out as users scroll past videos in their News Feed as long as the phone's volume is turned on. Videos will not automatically play sound when the phone's volume is set to off unless users tap on the video to hear it. People who never want to hear sound from News Feed videos can turn sound off entirely via the app's settings. Second, Facebook is taking advantage of mobile devices' form factor to make vertical videos look better. Moving forward, vertical videos will display a larger preview windows that fill more of the phone's screen. The larger format is available to all users on Android and iOS. Third, Facebook is making it easier to watch a video and scroll through the News Feed at the same time. People can minimize videos into a picture-in-picture format that will continue to play in one corner of the screen as they browse through their Feed. Facebook says Android device users will be able to keep picture-in-picture videos playing in the background even if they exit the Facebook app. Last, Facebook plans to bring its video to smart TVs and other big screens. The Facebook video app for TV will roll out soon to app stores for Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, and Samsung Smart TV. Facebook says support for more platforms will follow. The TV app will let people watch videos from their News Feed, as well as those shared by friends, pages, or live broadcasts.
  • T-Mobile Adds HD Video and 10GB of Hotspot Data to One Plan - T-Mobile is prepared to improve its T-Mobile One unlimited service plan ($70) in the wake of Verizon's new unlimited plan ($80). Primarily, T-Mobile will give T-Mobile One subscribers access to high-definition video and 10 GB of LTE 4G mobile hotspot data. Previously, streamed video was limited to 480p definition and hotspot data was limited to 3G speeds. Verizon's new plan includes HD video and 10 GB of LTE hotspot data, but cost $10 more than T-Mobile's before taxes and fees. T-Mobile has matched the features of Verizon's plan without increasing its prices. Moreover, T-Mobile is offering these features to two lines for $100, and T-Mobile's plan includes taxes and fees. The news was shared by T-Mobile CEO John Legere via his Twitter account. Some details from still aren't clear; for example, whether "HD" means 720p or 1080p. The changes to T-Mobile's One unlimited plan, available to existing customers ad new customers alike, will go into effect Friday, Feb. 17.
  • Sprint Tweaks Unlimited Plan to Compete with T-Mobile, Verizon - Sprint has announced an updated version of its unlimited plan that improves video quality and includes up to 10 GB of mobile hotspot data. Sprint says the new plan allows customers to stream video at up to 1080p HD rather than 480p; stream music at 1.5 Mbps rather than 512 Kbps; and stream games at up to 8 Mbps rather than 2 Mbps. These represent significant improvements over Sprint's previous unlimited plan, but subscribers will still be subject to data deprioritization when the network is congested. The deal is only available to new customers and they must sign up for Unlimited Talk, Text and Data with Sprint AutoPay. The first line costs $50 for unlimited everything. The second line costs $40, and lines three and four are free, leaving the total monthly cost for up to four lines at $90 (plus taxes and fees). This rate, however, is only good through March 31, 2018. After that date, subscribers to this promotion will see the first line jump to $60 per month, the second line stays at $40, and lines three and four increase to $30 each. Moreover, after March 31, 2018, streamed video, music, and games will be capped at the lower bit rates. Accompanying the revised plan, Sprint is further tempting consumers with a free phone lease. Customers who switch to Sprint and port their number can lease the 32 GB iPhone 7 at no cost for 18 months with a qualifying trade-in. Eligible trade-in devices include the iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, Samsung GS7, GS7 edge, GS6, GS6 edge, Note 5, LG V20, G5, and Moto Droid 2. T-Mobile and Verizon Wireless have trotted out similar changes to their unlimited plans over the course of the last week.
