Adapt your strategy mid-match when construction drones shift apartment modules, creating new routes and cover positions.
-  Site 244: An alien spacecraft has crash landed, spilling its mysterious cargo under the shadow of Mt. Rushmore, USA.

Use the map-based scorestreak to crack open an alien spore and instantly enhance your perks and exo abilities.
-  Climate: Fight your way through a futuristic man-made utopia in this lush, climate-controlled enclosure. In this small to medium sized circular map, land and water routes channel frenetic combat around the central island structure. Watch your step when the river water changes from an asset into a deadly bubbling obstacle.
-  Chop Shop: Think fast as you make your way through the black market exoskeleton industrial complex and engage in fast-paced shootouts in this medium sized, symmetrical map. Activate the map-based scorestreak to take control of an Advanced Repulsion Turret that radiates a deadly microwave EMP to help lock down key areas.

The Exo Zombies saga continues in the all-new episode, Infected, as the four Atlas employees, portrayed by the returning celebrity cast of John Malkovich (In the Line of Fire, RED, Burn After Reading), Bill Paxton (Aliens, Titanic, Edge of Tomorrow), Rose McGowan (Planet Terror, Scream), and Jon Bernthal (Fury) fight tooth and nail through undead zombie hordes.

  • The 10 Worst Things About Building a New Gaming PC - There are a thousand things that could go wrong, and any one of them could wind up costing hundreds of dollars. And yet we do it anyway. Why? Lord only knows.You shouldn't have chosen that CPU. It's a Haswell chip, and Haswells run too hot. You shouldn't have gotten those GTX 770s, because Nvidia is obviously going to reveal the 800 series soon and those will be much faster. You shouldn't have gotten that heatsink, because a water cooler will let you overclock much more. You shouldn't have gotten that monitor, you shouldn't use that keyboard, and you shouldn't have gotten the RAM with the heatsinks, because now your cooler fan won't fit in your case.
  • World's Smallest Computer - The University of Michigan's computer science department has developed a computer smaller than a grain of rice.
  • Here's what happens when you plug a Surface 3 into itself - Microsoft's new Surface 3 features USB charging which is a great addition to the tablet as it does away with the proprietary connectors of the past. So the question becomes what happens if you plug the Surface 3's USB 3.0 port into the charging port that is micro USB? When you create the connection, the Surface 3 acts as if it is plugged in. The icon in the taskbar switches to the charging icon and the device goes into the power mode as if it was plugged into the wall (brightness 100%) :D After a few minutes, Windows will say 'Plugged in but not charging' which means that the device is smart enough to not create a loop ;-)
  • Windows Redstone Will Come in Two Waves, June and October 2016 - With every new release of a Microsoft operating system, we always expect to see the inevitable service pack to improve upon the original release.

The update adds several new features to Apple's mobile devices, including more than 300 new emoji and an updated keyboard for using the emoji to personalize messages. The update adds the ability to filter incoming messages to help sort out junk. Siri gains the ability to speak Danish, Dutch, Portuguese, Russian, Swedish, Thai, and Turkish in iOS 8.3, and can now initiate phone calls via the speakerphone when requested. iOS 8.3 was released as a public beta earlier this year. The update is free to download. Apple also released OS X 10.10.3, which, among other things, adds Apple's new Photos application. The Photos app on Apple's Mac computers now mirrors the version on iOS devices. Apple is offering users a handful of cloud storage options for managing images stored in Photos, which can be accessed from Macs, smartphones, and tablets. OS X 10.10.3 is also free to download from Apple.

  • Star Trek: Renegades Official Trailer - It has been seven long years since Enterprise left the air, and though we've had the recent big screen adaptation of Gene Roddenberry's futuristic vision (and the sequel coming next year), we feel the true home of Star Trek is as a continuing episodic series. The goal of this project is to make that happen. We, the team who brought you Star Trek: Of Gods and Men, are proud to announce Star Trek: Renegades, a professionally produced television pilot to be presented for a possible online series. Renegades, as the name suggests, will be bold, edgy and a little dark. Renegades will feature a combination of familiar Star Trek faces, plus a collection of hot, new rising actors.

Grand Theft Auto - Windows Username Bug - briefly
(hx) 05:02 AM EDT - Apr,14 2015 - Post a comment / read (5)
Released for the PC today, Rockstar's Grand Theft Auto V is experiencing issues despite the 17 extra months the team had to work the bugs out. According to Steam, if you're having trouble getting GTAV on the PC to run it might be because your windows username contains anything other than a 0-9 or A-Z. Rockstar suggests you create and play under a new user account until they fix it :P
Question: I am having problems installing or playing GTAV PC, and my Windows username includes characters that are not in the table at the bottom of this page. Issues include an error message saying "The Rockstar update service is unavailable (code 1)", or the game hanging while trying to download the update. How can I fix this?

Answer: We have identified an issue where players with Windows usernames that include characters not found in the table at the bottom of this page will likely run into difficulties when attempting to download, install, or play GTAV. We are currently working on a fix for this issue.

If you don't want to wait for a fix, you need to create a new Administrator User Account for your Windows system that only includes letters A to Z, a to z or numbers 0-9 from the basic roman alphabet. For a full list of supported characters, see the table at the bottom of this page. Please note that simply renaming your current User Account will not correct this issue. Once your new account is created (or if you already have an account that only uses these characters) we recommend you restart your PC and log in with that account before starting or continuing with the installation process
