Middle-earth: Shadow of War Gets Awesome New Trailer - movie
(hx) 12:36 PM EDT - Aug,21 2017 - Post a comment
The new trailer for Shadow of War highlights the monsters that are featured in its world. Throughout the video, we see many iconic foes such as the fearsome Balrog and a variety of caragors. While we don’t see a whole lot of new gameplay, the trailer is definitely one of the cooler ones that we have seen since Shadow of War was announced earlier this year. Shadow of War is slated to release later this fall on October 10 for Xbox One, PS4, and PC.

World of Tanks: Coming to Xbox One X - console
(hx) 12:35 PM EDT - Aug,21 2017 - Post a comment
With the Xbox One X on the horizon, gamers are likely looking to see which game’s they will be able to enjoy once the console releases in November. Today, during the Microsoft Gamescom conference in Cologne, Germany, Microsoft announced that World of Tanks will be enhanced in 4k and released alongside the launch of the console on November 7, 2017.

Introducing Xbox One X Project Scorpio Edition - console
(hx) 08:21 AM EDT - Aug,21 2017 - Post a comment
Microsoft has officially unveiled the Xbox One X Project Scorpio Edition, a limited edition that will feature a custom design with the words "Project Scorpio" printed on the console and the controller, alongside a sophisticated and dynamic graphic pattern across the exterior. It’s supposedly available for pre-order now, yet none of the links appear to be working.



FYI, you’ll be able to copy the settings from your old Xbox into an external storage devices, and then plug them directly into your Xbox One X, in order to be able to just carry on with the same settings. Players will also be able to download 4K patches for the games they own ahead of time, and then transfer them via external storage or home network. Incidentally, Microsoft also announced this evening that over 100 existing games will get an update to support the new console. Last, but not least, you can copy your existing Xbox One games to the new Xbox One X via your home network. Of course, using the same external storage will also work.

Mass Effect: Andromeda Single-player Support Ends - briefly
(hx) 04:35 PM EDT - Aug,20 2017 - Post a comment / read (4)
The BioWare Blog offers an update on Mass Effect: Andromeda, saying there will be no more single-player updates for the latest installment in the sci-fi RPG series
Since the release of Mass Effect™: Andromeda, we’ve worked hard to address feedback from our community. From improving animations to expanding customization options, we looked to respond to your concerns, and build on what you loved.

With each patch, you let us know we were heading in the right direction, and we’re grateful to everyone who joined us on this journey. We’re proud of what we created, and we hope you enjoyed it as well.

Early in development, we decided to focus Mass Effect: Andromeda’s story on the Pathfinder, the exploration of the Andromeda galaxy, and the conflict with the Archon. The game was designed to further expand on the Pathfinder’s journey through this new galaxy with story-based APEX multiplayer missions and we will continue to tell stories in the Andromeda Galaxy through our upcoming comics and novels, including the fate of the quarian ark.

Our last update, 1.10, was the final update for Mass Effect: Andromeda. There are no planned future patches for single-player or in-game story content.

In the coming weeks, our multiplayer team will provide details of their ongoing support and upcoming content, including new multiplayer missions, character kits, and what’s in store for N7 Day.

We appreciate all the millions of people who came with us to the Andromeda galaxy. We hope to see you again in the Mass Effect universe.

  • AMD Responds to Radeon RX Vega Pricing Outrage - Some had claimed that AMD would be dropping its standalone air-cooled Radeon RX Vega 64 $499 SKU in a bait-and-switch scheme, but an official statement by the company suggests otherwise: demand of the card is merely exceeding expectations, and AMD is working hard to restock both standalone versions and Gamer Packs. Radeon RX Vega 64 demand continues to exceed expectations. AMD is working closely with its partners to address this demand. Our initial launch quantities included standalone Radeon RX Vega 64 at SEP of $499, Radeon RX Vega 64 Black Packs at SEP of $599, and Radeon RX Vega 64 Aqua Packs at SEP of $699. We are working with our partners to restock all SKUs of Radeon RX Vega 64 including the standalone cards and Gamer Packs over the next few weeks, and you should expect quantities of Vega to start arriving in the coming days.
  • The AMD Radeon RX Vega 64 & RX Vega 56 Review: Vega Burning Bright - So how does AMD fare? The answer to that is ultimately going to hinge on your opinion on power efficiency. But before we get too far, let’s start with the Radeon RX Vega 64, AMD’s flagship card. Previously we’ve been told that it would trade blows with NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 1080, and indeed it does just that. At 3840x2160, the Vega 64 is on average neck-and-neck with the GeForce GTX 1080 in gaming performance, with the two cards routinely trading the lead, and AMD holding it more often. Of course the “anything but identical” principle applies here, as while the cards are equal on average, they can sometimes be quite far apart on individual games.
  • Intel Atom C3000 Product Briefing - Intel has spilled the beans on its latest Atom processor: the C3000 is the company's third generation system-on-a-chip based CPU manufactured on their optimized 14nm process technology. Unlike their older brethren, these Atoms will primarily live in network and enterprise storage products instead of home devices (e.g., Ultrabooks and tablets).
  • Acer launches new Chromebook - Opening up the Chromebook 11 C771 reveals an 11.6 inch IPS panel with a resolution of 1366x768 that optionally comes as a touch screen (C771T). Although not pictured, the hinges allow a full 180 degrees of range so that touch screen users can enjoy a flat surface to work on. A fairly simple 720p webcam with built in microphone is centered above the screen. Inside the C771, a 6th Generation Intel Celeron 3855U comes standard, although Core i3 and Core i5 models will also be available. A 32GB eMMC module can be found for storage alongside 4GB of RAM.
  • The Ultimate Ryzen Hackintosh - AMD Ryzen PowerMac G5 Hackintosh Build (2017) vs a REAL Mac - PowerMac G5 case mod and PC build! This water cooled Ryzen 1700 Hackintosh is so epic. How do you build an AMD Hackintosh? This custom G5 case and Hackintosh beats a Mac Pro. This gaming and editing PC Hackintosh is packing some serious specifications. 
  • Microsoft unveils Windows 10 Pro for Workstations - Windows 10 Pro for Workstations has a focus on high-end hardware, which means support for server grade Intel Xeon or AMD Opteron processors. Unlike the current Windows 10 Pro, which only supports up to two physical CPUs and 2TB of RAM, this newest version can handle up to four physical CPUs and up to 6TB of memory.
  • iOS 11 Lets Users Temporarily Disable Touch ID - A new setting discovered in iOS allows iPhone owners to quickly and temporarily disable Touch ID. Pressing the power button rapidly five times activates SOS Emergency mode. The purpose of this mode is to let people bypass the lock tools to make an emergency phone call. A byproduct of entering SOS Emergency mode is disabling Touch ID. The only way to unlock the phone once Touch ID has been disabled is via the PIN or password. Because users are able to do this quickly and discreetly, it could be useful to help safeguard the iPhone in a situation when the owner might be compelled to provide their fingerprint. The feature was first spotted on Twitter and later verified by The Verge. iOS 11 is still in beta testing. It should be rolled out the general public next month. 
  • Bitcoin Is Forking. Again. - There's a third group of bitcoin developers, companies, and users who advocate for a "best of both worlds approach." This group includes Bitmain, the largest bitcoin infrastructure company in the world, and legendary bitcoin developer Jeff Garzik. They got together back in May and signed what is known as the "New York Agreement," which bound them to implement a two megabyte block size increase alongside segregated witness via a hard fork within six months of the time of signing. They call the fork Segwit2x.
  • China cracks down on VPN vendors, targets Alibaba and other - Chinese authorities have issued a warning to five of the country's well-known e-commerce platforms, over the sale of illegal virtual private networks (VPNs); that allows users to evade state censorship controls. Online retailers named in the notice include Alibaba, social shopping network Mogujie, and entertainment platforms Xiami and Peiyinxiu. This step is the latest in a chain of measures the Chinese authorities have taken in order to maintain more control over online content. A little over a month ago, China blocked VPN access for individuals, instructing companies to register with the government. Later on, complying with this mandate, Apple removed all major VPN apps from the Chinese App Store.
  • Google Drops August Security Patches for Android - Google has made its monthly security patches available to select Android devices. This month's patches plug a significant number of security holes that threaten most Android devices. Google found dozens of vulnerabilities, including a number of which classified as critical, or able to remotely execute code. Some of problems are related to specific hardware and the associated software drivers that control them. Google is pushing two separate patches to cover these vulnerabilities, one dated August 1 and the second dated August 5. As always, Google is delivering the patches directly to its own Nexus- and Pixel-branded devices first. Google has already posted factory images for download from its web site. Google's handsets will receive both patches in a single download. As far as Google is aware, none of these security holes have been exploited by hackers or other entities. Google has already given the patches to its device-maker partners. Phone manufacturers are responsible for updating their own smartphones with the patches.
  • Bionik Labs' ARKE Exoskeleton with Amazon Echo Integration - The ARKE is a prototype exoskeleton from Bionik Labs intended for paraplegic people and others with mobility problems. The robotic exoskeleton enables users to stand up from their wheelchairs and walk on their own legs. Bionik Labs integrated the hardware with the Amazon Echo system, allowing uses to issue commands and check parameters by addressing Amazon Alexa, the virtual assistant used for home automation
  • Facebook Intros A Dedicated Video Platform Called 'Watch' - Facebook hopes its new platform will entice people to consume more video content through Facebook. Facebook Watch is a place for episodic shows that will be available on mobile, on PCs, and in Facebook's TV apps. Facebook says the service is personalized to help people find new content, sometimes based on what users' friends and communities watch. People will be able to leave comments on shows in order to connect with friends and others. Shows may offer dedicated Facebook Groups for more in-depth discussions. Facebook says Watch is a platform for creators and publishers seeking to find dedicated audiences, similar to the way YouTube stars have created their own niches. The company has high hopes that creators will put together daily episodes, live shows/events, and even shows that follow a narrative arc. The company has funded a small collection of original programming in order to get Watch on its feet. Facebook will be testing Watch with a limited number of people in the U.S. first. The social network expects to roll it out to wider audiences over time.
  • Samsung Makes Its Internet Browser Available to Most Android Phones - Samsung has made a version of its mobile browser available to non-Samsung handsets. The company has been beta testing Samsung Internet Browser on Nexus and Pixel phones since April. The latest build, v6 Beta, is compatible with all Android devices running version 5.0 Lollipop and up. Samsung says its browser can sync bookmarks with Chrome on desktop machines, or other machines via the Samsung Cloud. The Samsung browser also includes content blockers, high-contrast mode, CSS Grid (for control over certain layouts), and the latest Chromium engine. Advanced users might take advantage of several beta features, including WebVR, web-based Bluetooth, WebGL 2, and Gamepad extensions. The Samsung Internet Browser Beta can be downloaded directly from the Google Play Store.
  • Google Home Owners Can Now Make Free Calls - Google today enabled free voice calls from its Google Home speaker. Google Home is powered by the Google Assistant. Google says Home owners in the U.S. and Canada can initiate free voice calls to anyone in their contacts, as well as any business, by simply asking Google Home to make the call. The calls are completed over the Home's WiFi connection. For now, those who receive a call made via Google Home will see "unknown" or "no caller ID" when it rings their number, though Google hopes to let people display their mobile device number in Home calls by the end of the year. People who subscribe to Google Voice or Project Fi can use their Google number with Home right away.
  • HMD Global Intros Nokia 8 Flagship Smartphone - HMD Global, the sole licensee of the Nokia brand, today announced the Nokia 8 flagship Android smartphone. The handset is milled from 6000 series aluminum and polished to a high-gloss finish in black, blue, silver, and copper. The Nokia 8 boasts a 5.3-inch quad HD screen with curved Gorilla Glass 5, and it is powered by a Snapdragon 835 processor with 4 or 6 GB of RAM, and 64 or 128 GB of storage (depending on color selection.) All versions support microSD memory cards up to 128 GB. Like many modern flagships, the Nokia 8 adopts a dual-camera configuration with two 13-megapixel cameras on the rear with LED flash. One camera captures full color images and the other captures monochrome images along with depth and contrast information. Both feature Zeiss optics. The front camera has a 13-megapixel sensor, too, with a display-based flash. All three cameras have f/2.0 lenses. The Nokia 8 includes software that allows people to shoot photos and/or video with both the front and rear cameras at the same time. Other specs include a 3.090mAh battery, Bluetooth, GPS, WiFi, NFC, and Cat 9 LTE. The phone runs Android 7.1 Nougat and costs $700. HMD Global didn't immediately specify where the Nokia 8 will be sold.
  • New Qualcomm Tech Aims to Bring High-Quality AR and VR Mainstream - Qualcomm has announced a major expansion of Spectra, its effort to offer manufacturers a drop-in hardware and software solution for easily and affordably adding advanced camera technology to phones and other devices powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon chips. The expanded Spectra suite includes three new hardware camera modules. The flagship module is an active depth-sensing camera that uses an infrared projector and camera to create a 3D map of its environment, much like LIDAR. 
  • Cruise Anywhere App - It's pretty amazing how fast driver-less car technology is accelerating (no pun intended). It's not something I'm personally interested in, as I am a driving enthusiast, I'm starting to see the potential in cities more and more. Cruise uses the GM Bolt EV as its self-driving car of choice and expects to add another 100 vehicles to the fleet in the next few months. That should open up the app to more employees, though it may be over a year before the company is ready to open it up to everyday users.
  • Video Stabilization Algorithm Goofs Up - Video stabilization software is really cool, but it's not perfect (yet). Case in point: this car's jello-like windshield.
  • Army Discovery May Offer New Energy Source - Army scientists at Aberdeen Proving Ground have made a discovery in the form of an aluminum nanomaterial that can separate the hydrogen and oxygen in water, or any liquid containing water without the need for a catalyst. Dr. Anit Giri said "Also, it is very fast. For example, we have calculated that one kilogram of aluminum powder can produce 220 kilowatts of energy in just three minutes."
  • In The Event Of A Nuclear Blast, Don't Condition Your Hair - If, for some reason, you find yourself in a situation where you need to wash radioactive material from your body, don't reach for the bottle of hair conditioner. Conditioner can bind radioactive particles to your hair. That warning was part of guidelines issued last Friday by Guam's Office of Civil Defense, following threats from North Korea that it was preparing to test a missile that would create an "enveloping fire" around the U.S. territory. On Tuesday, North Korean state media reported it would not carry out the test after all. Still, the guidelines, which also include information on how to take cover before an explosion, are correct. They're the same guidelines posted on the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's website, Ready.gov. The reason conditioner can be dangerous has to do with the physical characteristics of human hair, the chemistry of hair conditioner and properties of nuclear fallout.
  • Peter Dinklage's "Rememory" Will Be Free on Google Play  - In a rare move, Google Play Movies & TV is debuting a new, full-length film before it hits theaters -- and not only that, it'll be offered for free: you may visit the store between August 24th to September 20th for a copy of sci-fi thriller "Rememory," which stars Peter Dinklage as some guy who is involved with a memory recorder/playback machine. The film tells the story of visionary scientific pioneer (Martin Donovan) and his invention that can record and play people's memories. He's found dead soon after its unveiling, causing his widow (Julia Ormond) to isolate herself from the outside world until a mysterious character (Peter Dinklage) appears to help solve the mystery. It's currently got a rating of 8.6 on IMDB, so could be worth seeing.
  • Marvel's The Defenders - Official Trailer 3 - Don't call it a team-up. Marvel's The Defenders focuses on four heroes that come together as an ancient, powerful group threatens all of New York. The Netflix original series launches globally on August 18, 2017.
  • Zane Plays Proboid - Polaris Animated Universe - Zane is a deep space scout exploring the unknown in his two-legged vehicle, the PROBOID. He's utterly alone except for an emergency chat channel filled with viewers spamming his only lifeline with expired memes, emote spam, and shoutout requests. Will any of his fellow scouts find him?

In fact, in just a week she was already able to book her first campaign with none other than the renowned underwater photographer Zena Halloway. She has been really successful in the fashion ever since. Why? Because she's hot, that's why! She has even been chosen to be a part of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit calendar already. There's no need to get the calendar though because her sexiest pictures are already right here!

Valve Is Limiting Bulk Requests for Steam Keys - briefly
(hx) 04:48 AM EDT - Aug,20 2017 - Post a comment
A leaked picture from the private Steam forum for developers has emerged, that show Valve will in fact limit the amount of keys developers can generate if it isn't worth the cost to Valve. FYI, this post explains how the $100 Steam Direct fee could result in $9000 earned. Valve has provided us with the following statement with regards to future free Steam key allocation:
Steam keys have always been available for free to our partners to help them sell PC games at physical retail and on other digital stores. In return, we've asked that partners offer Steam customers a fair deal, similar to what they're offering on other stores. None of that is changing.

But over the last few years, new features and additions to Steam have changed the way Steam keys were being used, for instance as a means for game-shaped objects to monetize on Steam through methods other than actually selling fun games to customers. Most notably, this meant farming Steam Trading Cards. We shared a lot of info about that issue, and our response to it, here.

While our changes did impact the economics of trading card farming for new products coming to Steam, there are still a lot of games and game-shaped objects using Steam keys as a way to manipulate Steam systems. As a result, we're trying to look more closely at extreme examples of products on Steam that don't seem to be providing actual value as playable games-for instance, when a game has sold 100 units, has mostly negative reviews, but requests 500,000 Steam keys. We're not interested in supporting trading card farming or bot networks at the expense of being able to provide value and service for players.

It's completely OK for partners to sell their games on other sites via Steam keys, and run discounts or bundles on other stores, and we'll continue granting free keys to help partners do those things. But it's not OK to negatively impact our customers by manipulating our store and features.
