Google today outlined some of the new features in Google Play Services 9.0. Specifically, there are a handful of new APIs that will let developers add more functionality to their apps. For example, the Video Recording API will allow developers to add video recording the their own apps, as well as make those videos easy to share via YouTube or other apps. The updated Nearby API will let apps scan for nearby Bluetooth low energy beacons without additional permissions. This will give beacon owners (and the developers who wrote the apps for them) more leeway to send messages to Android devices as they roam near beacons. Play Services 9.0 makes changes to the Player Stats API, which lets developers gain more insight to gameplay, what actions gamers are likely to pursue, and whether or not they'll spend more money. In a related change, Play Services 9.0 makes improvements to how developers can integrate ads and ad campaigns into their apps. Google didn't say when Play Services will be distributed to end-user devices.

        Performance increase by up to 35% on AMD Radeon R9 390 series products in Doom versus Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.5.2

Known Issues

        A few game titles may fail to launch or crash if the AMD Gaming Evolved overlay is enabled. A temporary workaround is to disable the AMD Gaming Evolved "In Game Overlay".
        Users in Quad AMD Crossfire technology configurations may be unable to re-enable AMD Crossfire mode when using the global AMD Crossfire option in the "Gaming" tab and toggling it from on to off.
        The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt inventory and character pages may exhibit flickering in AMD Crossfire technology mode.
        Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare may exhibit stuttering when using AMD FreeSync technology and AMD Crossfire technology in conjunction.
        Installing Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.5.2.1 multiple times on the same machine after rebooting may cause the installer to hang.
        The AMD Crossfire mode options in Radeon Settings may not take effect on Origin or Uplay applications.
        Radeon Settings Additional Settings page may not be available when upgrading to Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.5.2.1 from the current windows update driver. As a work around please clean uninstall all current Radeon Software when upgrading if your system exhibits this issue.

TechNews - Samsung Reveals 256 GB MicroSD - briefly
(hx) 05:31 PM EDT - May,14 2016 - Post a comment
  • Samsung Reveals 256 GB MicroSD Memory Card - Samsung has announced the EVO Plus 256 GB microSD card, what it claims is the highest-capacity memory card available for sale. Samsung says the card can hold 33 hours of full HD video, 12 hours of 4K / UHD video, 55,200 pictures, or 23,500 music files. It offers read/write speeds 95Mbps and 90Mbps, respectively. The card is heat, x-ray, magnet, and waterproof. The EVO Plus 256 GB microSD card will go on sale in the U.S. and other countries in June for $250.
  • Microsoft Pulls WiFi Sense from Windows 10 - Microsoft has decided to remove the WiFi Sense feature from all versions of Windows 10, including mobile devices and PCs. The feature was pulled from the most recent preview build of Windows 10 for PCs; it will be pulled from phones, too. WiFi Sense allowed people to share their WiFi logins with social network connections, as well as connect to public WiFi networks with less hassle. "The cost of updating the code to keep this feature working combined with low usage and low demand made this not worth further investment," explained Microsoft. Microsoft said people who leave WiFi Sense running on their phones will still be able to connect to open WiFi hotspots that are already in Microsoft's shared database. Microsoft recently released a new preview build of Windows 10 for handsets. Build 14332 mostly targets bugs and makes refinements to the user interface of select apps. The next preview build for phones will likely strip out WiFi Sense.
  • Opera Debuts VPN for iPhone and iPad - Opera Software today launched a free VPN for iOS devices that allows iPhone and iPad owners to browse the web more securely and access what might be prohibited content when using managed networks. The VPN removes ad trackers for privacy purposes and supports virtual locations (U.S., Canada, Germany, Singapore, and the Netherlands), which should let people get around some region-based restrictions. The VPN supports a handful of languages, including English, Arabic, French, German, Indonesian, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish. Opera imagines the VPN will be useful to students and office workers who are restricted from accessing social networks or other types of web sites when using campus or office WiFi. Opera VPN can be downloaded directly from Opera's web site.
  • New Attack Reported On Global Banking Network - Petya has recently been known as that nasty piece of ransomware that not only encrypts your files and holds them hostage in exchange for bitcoins, but also manipulates the booting process along the way. This makes it harder for victims to operate their computers, urging them even further to pay up. In order for Petya to activate, a user must first grant the program administrator rights through the UAC security feature. If a user rejects the request query, the infection process will be terminated. However, the developers behind Petya have recently worked around this, releasing a new type of ransomware even if the user rejected the program access to the computer.
  • Adobe Issues Another Security Advisory For Adobe Flash Player - Adobe, a world leader in overlooking critical security flaws in its own products, has issued another security advisory for Flash. Update is already available.
  • Google Bakes Search Into Keyboard App for iPhones - Google has revealed GBoard, a keyboard application for iPhones that includes search capabilities. Google is pitching GBoard as a way to simplify how people use the iPhone by allowing users to perform searches without leaving the current app, such as text messaging. A dedicated button calls up the search tool, which presents results in card form with important details, including addresses, business hours, and phone numbers, on the screen. iPhone owners can then send search results, such as restaurant info, flight times, and news articles, in messages or emails with a single tap. Beyond the search tool, GBoard also brings searchable GIFs to the iPhone keyboard, and makes it easier to find emoji. Last, the app includes swipe-style typing, so iPhone owners can trace their finger across the keyboard rather than peck at individual letters. GBoard is free to download from the iTunes App Store.
  • How torrenting works - A torrent might look like a typical download, but the difference is the only thing keeping you out of legal trouble. Russell Brandom explains.
  • HoloFlex: Holographic, flexible smartphone projects princess Leia - Researchers at the Human Media Lab at Queen's University have developed the world's first holographic flexible smartphone. The device, dubbed HoloFlex, is capable of rendering 3D images with motion parallax and stereoscopy to multiple simultaneous users without head tracking or glasses.
  • Hyperloop One Completes 1st Test of Futuristic Transportation System - The Nevada test, in which a sled accelerated to 116 mph (187km/h) in 1.1 seconds, represents a very early proof of concept; there are a vast number of hurdles that the developers of Hyperloop still have to clear if the technology is to become a reality.
  • Outcast Season 1 Trailer for the new Cinemax Series - From the creator of The Walking Dead, Robert Kirkman presents Outcast. Coming to Cinemax on June 3rd.
  • Star Wars Minus Williams - Throne Room - Episode 4 is nearly here.
  • Assassin's Creed - Trailer World Premiere - This is the trailer for the movie Assassin's Creed starring Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard, which hits theaters December 21st.
  • Duncan Jones, The Best of Star Wars Day - Warcraft director Duncan Jones talks about the film and his experiences with Star Wars, we take a look back at the highlights of Star Wars Day, unveil a big Celebration Europe announcement, visit UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital, and much more!
  • Wingsuit Flight Through Ring of Fire with Uli Emanuele - Human flight artist Uli Emanuele has brought to life another one of his sensational dreams, to fly through a ring of fire. With the help of some friends they cart the heavy metal contraption high into the Italian Alps. With a little improvisation the support crew get everything ready just as the wind slows allowing Uli to soar through the flaming circle.
  • Crushing gummy bears with hydraulic press - The Hydraulic Press Channel has been around for awhile now, and consistently puts out good pressing content. Every once and awhile, though, it puts out a true gem, like the press crushing these gummy bears.

What Makes NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 1080 So Fast? - tech
(hx) 05:31 PM EDT - May,13 2016 - Post a comment
The chaps over at VR World think they have a pretty good handle on what makes NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 1080 so fast. Definitely good reading!
Stock GTX 1080 is clocked at 1.66 GHz, with Turbo Boost lifting it to 1.73 GHz. Founders Edition includes overclocking-friendly BIOS to raise the clocks to at least 2 GHz, and the presentation showed the chip running at 2.1 GHz. The main limiting factor for the overclocking beyond 2.2 GHz is 225 Watts, which is how much the board can officially pull from the power circuitry: 75 Watts from the motherboard and 150 W through 8-pin PEG connector. However, there are power supply manufacturers which provide more juice per rail, and we've seen single 8-pin connector delivering 225 W on its own. Still, partners such as ASUS, Colorful, EVGA, Galax, GigaByte, MSI are preparing custom boards with 2-3 8-pin connectors. According to our sources, reaching 2.5 GHz using a liquid cooling setup such as Corsair H115i or EK Waterblocks should not be too much of a hassle.

Search for performance lead the company to remove as much legacy options as possible, and you can no longer connect the GTX 1080 with an analog display. D-SUB15 is now firmly in the past, and you cannot make the connection work even if you use a 3rd party adapter. The rest of connectors include a 144Hz-capable DVI, three DisplayPort 1.4 and a single HDMI 2.0B connector.
GeForce Game Ready 365.19 WHQL drivers - tech

NVIDIA has released a new GeForce Game Ready driver, namely version 365.19 WHQL, which promises to provide the best gaming experience while playing Doom, Homefront: The Revolution, and Master of Orion titles.

Moreover, these computers also receive Control Panel fixes (for GeForce GT 720 users), performance improvements in Glacier NVIDIA D3D test application, DisplayPort workarounds to correct playback behavior, and more.
