It's that time of the year again when Activision releases live-action Call of Duty trailers for its upcoming game. This time, we get one for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare that features Olympic swimming champion Michael Phelps and comedic actor Danny McBride (This Is the End). The trailer opens on a fictional Earth where Europe leaves the EU and a debate moderator punches a presidential candidate in the face. One fed-up citizen says, "Screw this, let's go to space," and blasts off in a rocket. Lots of shooty-bang-bang happens and then Phelps and McBride show up. Check it out.

Blizzard Finally Introduces Native Voice Chat - tech
(hx) 11:18 AM EDT - Oct,24 2016 - Post a comment
Blizzard gamers have an alternative to Skype or Ventrilo now, as the company has launched a built-in voice chat service. The article claims that the voice quality is "remarkable," but you can judge for yourself by simply updating to get the feature.
The company has been trying to introduce some form of voice chat into its ecosystem for a while now. There’s been a decent but limited voice chat implementation in World of Warcraft for a long time, but that was only available inside of the MMORPG. But as of right now, everyone using the latest version of the app can jump in and use voice chat with friends across all of Blizzard’s titles – and outside of them as well. All a user needs to do is update the app to version 1.5.1, Build 8098, or newer. After logging in, you’ll be prompted with a new pop-up informing users that Voice Chat is now available. To enable it, simply head over to the friends list, create a channel with some friends and click on headphone icon.
Battlefield 1 - patch v1.02 - patch
(hx) 09:21 AM EDT - Oct,24 2016 - Post a comment / read (3)
DICE has just released the first update for Battlefield 1. This update is around 766MB in size, however the team has not revealed yet its release notes. As such, I don't know what this patch actually fixes or improves. However, some users are already pretty satisfied:
Yes I know there are a bunch of threads, but this cuts to the chase. Those moaning about Player movement fluidity being out of sorts before, happy now? Notice the difference? I'd say it feels like a proper game now!

    Fixed an issue where players were missing “The Insider” Dog Tag.
    Tweaked calculations of values in End of Round.
    Fixed issue where Class Rank was incorrect.
    Note: This fix may result in players going down in Class Rank to the correct rank. In this scenario, any unlocks purchased at a higher and incorrect rank will not be lost.
    PC: Fixed an occasional crash when a user shutdown the game.
    PC: Fixed an issue where players experienced troubles with A and X button functionality on PC while using an Xbox One controller.
    PC: Fixed an issue where players experienced crashing while closing the client during streaming installation.

  • Part 1: DirectX 11 Gaming And Multi-Core CPU Scaling - The chaps over at THG have tested five theoretical Intel CPUs in 10 different DirectX 11-based games to determine what impact core count has on performance.
  • Seagate Announces BarraCuda ST5000 - Seagate has just announced its new BarraCuda ST5000, which bumps the maximum storage capacity of its 2.5-inch mobile hard drive from 4TB to an impressive 5TB. Seagate was able to achieve this feat using its new 2.5-inch 1TB platters that were first announced in January. For those that don't need a staggering 5TB at their disposal, cheaper 4TB (ST4000) and 3TB (ST3000) versions will also be offered. All of the drives in the new BarraCuda family spin at 5400RPM and have 128MB of cache onboard. However, beware that the BarraCuda ST5000, ST4000, and ST3000 all have a 15mm z-height, which means that you won't be cramming these drives into most notebooks (with the exception of massive gaming notebooks). Seagate says that drives are destined to go into all-in-one PCs and ultra-slim desktops that need to provide a lot of storage, but don't have enough room to fit a 3.5-inch hard drive. You can also expect to see these drives pop up in external enclosures. Seagate also announced a new 2TB FireCuda drive that includes 8GB of flash onboard to improve boot times and help you load applications faster
  • The Samsung 960 Pro (2TB) SSD Review - The $1299 MSRP on the 2TB 960 Pro is almost as shocking as the $1499 MSRP for the 4TB 850 EVO was. This drive is not for everyone, though it might be coveted by everyone. But for those who have the money, the price per gigabyte is not outlandish. Aside from Intel's TLC-based SSD 600p, PCIe SSDs currently start around $0.50/GB, and at $0.63/GB the 960 Pro is more expensive than the Plextor M8Pe but cheaper than the Intel SSD 750 or the OCZ RD400A. Samsung is by no means price gouging and they could justify charging even more based on the performance and efficiency advantages the 960 Pro has over the competitors. The 960 Pro and 960 EVO are not yet listed on Amazon and are only listed as "Coming Soon" with no price on Newegg, but they can be pre-ordered direct from Samsung with an estimated ship time of 2-4 weeks.
  • Samsung Kicks Off Production of 10nm SoCs - Samsung has said it has begun producing systems-on-a-chip using its 10nm FinFET process. The SoCs will eventually be used in application processors for mobile devices, such as smartphones and tablets. Samsung's 10nm FinFET process relies on 3D transistors and new methods such as triple-patterning to generate significant improvements over its 14nm process. For example, SoCs made with the 10nm process are 30% smaller, require 40% less power, and can boost performance by up to 27%. Samsung believes the first devices to rely on its 10nm FinFET process will reach the market it early 2017, with more to follow throughout the year.
  • Qualcomm Intros New Snapdragon 600 and 400 Processors - Qualcomm today announced new Snapdragon application processors for mid-range and volume mobile devices. The Snapdragon 653, Snapdragon 626, and Snapdragon 427 are all paired with Qualcomm's X9 LTE modem with Cat 7 download (300Mbps) and Cat 13 upload (150Mbps) speeds; 2x20 MHz Carrier Aggregation; 64-QAM on the uplink; and VoLTE with Enhanced Voice Services. The Snapdragon 653 improves upon the Snapdragon 652 with faster CPU/GPU performance and double the RAM (now 8 GB). The Snapdragon 626 improves upon the Snapdragon 625 with quicker CPU performance, a better antenna, and wider software compatibility. The Snapdragon 427 is an update to the Snapdragon 425 with better CPU/GPU speeds and Qualcomm's TruSignal antenna tuning. Qualcomm says the Snapdragon 653 and 626 will reach mobile devices before the end of the year, but the 427 won't arrive until early 2017.
  • iPhone 7 Plus Intel Modem Not Equal to Qualcomm Modem - Under poor network conditions, the iPhone 7 Plus with Intel inside does not perform as well as the iPhone 7 Plus with Qualcomm inside. Apple sourced the iPhone 7 Plus modem from both Intel and Qualcomm. This represents a major change for the company, which has relied solely on Qualcomm modems for years. The Intel modem (XMM7360) is found in the AT&T and T-Mobile variants of the iPhone 7, while the Qualcomm modem (MDM9645M) is found in the Sprint, Verizon, and unlocked variants of the iPhone 7. Cellular Insights conducted extensive signal tests on the iPhone 7 Plus in LTE Bands 12, 7, and 4 to see if any performance differences exist between the two modems. Under optimal network conditions both the Intel- and Qualcomm-equipped iPhones demonstrated an equal level of performance in speed and maintaining a connection. Under weak network conditions, however, the Intel-equipped iPhone 7 Plus posted speeds that were on average 30% slower than those of the Qualcomm-equipped iPhone 7 Plus. The slower speeds at the cell edge mean the Intel-based iPhone 7 Plus may be more likely to experience dropped VoLTE calls and other, similar behaviors. "In all tests, the iPhone 7 Plus with the Qualcomm modem had a significant performance edge over the iPhone 7 Plus with the Intel modem," said Cellular Insights in its report. Apple has not said why it selected modems from two separate suppliers for the iPhone 7 Plus.
  • Apple Releases iOS 10.0.3 to Resolve iPhone 7 Connectivity Bug - Apple today made iOS 10.0.3 available to the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. This update is targeted at Apple's newest iPhones and resolves an issue that impacted cellular connectivity. Apple recommends all iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus owners apply the update when possible.
  • Phone 7 bursts into flames, destroys vehicle - A south coast surfer says his iPhone 7 burst into flames and destroyed his car. Mat Jones says he had left the phone under clothes in his car while taking a surf lesson. When he returned, he was shocked to discover the vehicle filled with smoke. The tech giant Apple wouldn't comment but said they were aware of the complaint and they are investigating. It follows concerns in the past few weeks from Samsung Galaxy Note 7 owners about their phones catching fire.
  • Samsung to Reward Note7 Owners' Loyalty with Cash - Samsung is offering a cash incentive to Galaxy Note7 owners if they stick with the Samsung brand. U.S. consumers who exchange their Note7 for any other Samsung handset will be rewarded with $100 in bill credits. Consumers who exchange their Note7 for a phone made by another company will be given $25 in bill credits. The financial incentive arrives as Samsung expands its recall of the Note7 to all devices, both the original and the replacement. The number of Note7s being recalled in the U.S. stands at about 1.9 million. Samsung hasn't said how many have even returned/exchanged. "We appreciate the patience of our consumers, carriers, and retail partners for carrying the burden during these challenging times," said Samsung Electronics America COO Tim Baxter. "We are committed to doing everything we can to make this right." There have been 96 documented cases of the Note7 overheating in the U.S., according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, with 15 of those coming from supposed safe devices.
  • Google Pixel Hits Verizon Stores Today, But Pixel XL 128 GB Sold Out - Verizon Wireless said the Google Pixel and Pixel XL are available at its stores today. The Pixel 32 GB ($650) and 128 GB ($750), and the Pixel XL 32 GB ($770) are in stores in black, white, and blue. The Pixel XL 128 GB ($870) is sold out and not available. Monthly pricing over two years breaks down to $27.08, $31.24, $32.08, and $36.24, respectively, for the Pixel 32 GB, Pixel 128 GB, Pixel XL 32 GB, and Pixel XL 128 GB. Verizon will offer up to $300 for select trade-ins, including the HTC One M9, iPhone 6 or 6 Plus, LG G4 or V10, Samsung Galaxy S6, S6 edge, S6 edge+ or Note 5. Customers who buy either Pixel device may also preorder the Daydream View virtual reality headset.
  • Reviewer Unboxes The Google Pixel And Discovers Its Horrifying - Christopher Bingham is here to unbox Google's new flagship phone and show us - what's that, you can use it to call the dead?
  • ZTE's Project CSX Picks Eyeball-Controlled, Sticky Phone - ZTE has announced that the winning entry of its Project CSX crowd-sourced competition is an eye-controlled smartphone. Owners of the device, which will be built by ZTE over the course of the next year, will be able to control the handset by moving their eyes around. The phone will also include a self-adhesive rear panel so it sticks to surfaces like car dashboards without help. Thousands of voters selected from dozens of initial entries that were narrowed down to five entries this week. "We are overwhelmed with the amount of consumer participation and positive reception to Project CSX," said Lixin Cheng, chairman and CEO of ZTE USA. "As the first smartphone manufacturer to take on crowdsourcing its next mobile device from start to finish, we are proud of how this project pushed the envelope, and that consumers from around the world have chosen to be part of this industry-disrupting process." The eye-controlled, self-adhesive phone won with 36% of the vote. ZTE will work with the winner to design, engineer, and manufacture the device, which it hopes to bring to market by late 2017.
  • Bendable Touchscreens Are Getting Closer To Reality - This is Xiaomi's attempt at a flexible touchscreen. It looks pretty nice!
  • Why Was Half The Internet Down This Morning? - Twitter, Spotify and Reddit, and a huge swath of other websites were down or screwed up this morning. This was happening as hackers unleashed a large distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack on the servers of Dyn, a major DNS host. It's probably safe to assume that the two situations are related.  Domain Name Servers (DNS) act as the Internet's phone book. Basically, they facilitate your request to go to a certain webpage and make sure you are taken to the right place. If the DNS provider that handles requests for Twitter is down, well, good luck getting to Twitter. Some websites are coming back for some users, but it doesn't look like the problem is fully resolved. Dyn posted this update on its website: "Starting at 11:10 UTC on October 21th-Friday 2016 we began monitoring and mitigating a DDoS attack against our Dyn Managed DNS infrastructure. Some customers may experience increased DNS query latency and delayed zone propagation during this time. Updates will be posted as information becomes available."
  • Samsung Kicks Off Production of 10nm SoCs - Samsung today said it has begun producing systems-on-a-chip using its 10nm FinFET process. The SoCs will eventually be used in application processors for mobile devices, such as smartphones and tablets. Samsung's 10nm FinFET process relies on 3D transistors and new methods such as triple-patterning to generate significant improvements over its 14nm process. For example, SoCs made with the 10nm process are 30% smaller, require 40% less power, and can boost performance by up to 27%. Samsung believes the first devices to rely on its 10nm FinFET process will reach the market it early 2017, with more to follow throughout the year.
  • Microsoft Debuts Skype Sign-In Across Services  - Microsoft has made it possible for Skype users to sign into other Microsoft services with their Skype username and password. For example, people who have Skype credentials will be able to use them to log into Xbox, Office, or OneDrive. Moreover, people will be able to use those services across devices and platforms with this new single sign-in, negating the need to enter separate usernames and passwords for each Microsoft service across their devices. Microsoft is now wholly managing the Skype sign-in screen, password change, and account recovery flow, but none of these changes impact how people access and use Skype. Microsoft says the single sign-in tool will be available in the newest versions of the Skype app across platforms in the days ahead.
  • New Android Malware asks for a selfie as it steals your information - McAfee Labs' Mobile Research Team discovered the malicious application, which is a new variant of the Acecard Trojan Malware (aka Torec) that was first identified back in February. In addition to asking for credit card details and information such as "mother's maiden name," the updated app offers "identify confirmation," which involves uploading photos of identity documents such as a driver's license along with a selfie of the gullible user holding the ID.  As is the case with many Trojans, Acecard installs itself by tricking the user into thinking they're installing a video codec/plugin or app for watching adult videos. Once it's on the Android device, the malware asks for administrator privileges, before running in the background while monitoring specific apps. Acecard then shows a phishing overlay that pretends to be Google Play asking for a credit card number. This is followed by requests for name, date of birth, phone number, card expiration date, and CCV. It will also request second-factor authentication for some cards. Anyone who lives in Hong Kong will be asked for a copy of their HK ID card, while Singapore residents must add their National Registration card and passport.
  • CryPy ransomware encrypts your files with a unique key for each one - The malware was found in a security flaw in a content management system called Magento, which allowed perpetrators to utilize a PHP shell script to a vulnerable web server in Israel, which now acts as the Command & Control (C&C) server of the CryPy ransomware. Moreover, the C&C server isn't used only for ransomware attacks; the server is also utilized to conduct phishing attacks, which are usually fake PayPal messages. It is believed that the malware developers are Hebrew-speaking. CryPy is composed of two files, namely ',' and '' The former is responsible for error-logging on the Windows platform, while the latter is the encryptor itself. Once a system has been infected, the ransomware disables Registry Tools, Task Manager, CMD, and Run, which are the usual features used to control and terminate malware. Soon after, it will start encrypting files. Typical ransomware encrypts all files of a system, then assigns a unique key for it, so when the developers demand money from victims, they can track the infected system. However, CryPy makes it a lot more difficult for its prey by assigning a unique key for each file that it encrypts.

Hello Neighbor is a first-person horror/stealth game that tasks players with breaking into their neighbors home to discover exactly what he has locked away in his basement. In this sense, players take on the role of a home invader, and so their neighbor understandably does what he can to defend himself.

To accomplish this, players will be allowed to interact with most everything in the environment, and are encouraged to experiment with its sandbox-style gameplay in order to solve the mystery.

Nvidia has just updated its GeForce drivers to be 'game ready' for Battlefield 1, Titanfall 2, Civilization VI, Serious Sam VR: The Last Hope, and Ubisoft's Eagle Flight. The green team provides a bit more blurb on the included driver optimisations thanks to its regular blog posts and accompanying PDF documentation. It is also good to see some recommended specs with corresponding GPUs for the likes of Titanfall 2. Battlefield 1 went live today for the masses and Nvidia recommends you "gear up" with at least a GeForce GTX 1060 3GB card to enjoy it at 60FPS, at 1920x1080, with high graphical details. Titanfall 2 is still a week from release but Nvidia already has assessed the game at resolutions up to 4K, running at 60FPS.
