    Password Methodology

    Its best to allow apps like LastPass generate them for you. There was a time I would just grab a medical dictionary to generate the framework for a password since most brute force attacks are in Websters.

    Firefox Quantum 67.0

    Firefox Quantum 67.0 by Razvan Serea Firefox is a fast, full-featured Web browser. It offers great security, privacy, and protection against viruses, spyware, malware, and it can also easily block pop-up windows. The key features that have made Firefox so popular are the simple and effective UI, browser speed and strong security capabilities. Quantum is Mozilla's project to build the next-generation web engine for Firefox users, building on the Gecko engine as a solid foundation. Quantum will leverage the fearless concurrency of Rust and high-performance components of Servo to bring more parallelization and GPU offloading to Firefox. Firefox (Quantum) users will be impressed by the modern new design that puts their needs first. With the new (fast and fluid Photon) design, Firefox leaps ahead with a new interface that reflects today’s reality of High DPI displays and users who are more task focused than they’ve ever been. Photon doesn’t just look good, it’s also smarter. If you’re using Photon on a Windows PC with a touch display, the menus change size based on whether you click with a mouse or touch with a finger. Firefox includes pop-up blocking, tab-browsing, integrated Google search, simplified privacy controls, a streamlined browser window that shows you more of the page than any other browser and a number of additional features that work with you to help you get the most out of your time online.

  6. They do have some good exclusive franchises, Forza and GoW for example (just because you don't like them does not mean they don't count). Also, 3rd party, multiplatform games are a thing. Besides, E3 is like a month away.
  7. I think the bigger problem is that most games DO have a simple "Mute" button. People screaming about toxicity should learn how to use it. Now I'm not saying that there is nothing that can be done but many tools exist already and I don't really want to start people being permanently banned because they said a swear word in 18+ game (because But Think of the kids!)

    Password Methodology

    I just look on my phone for the password and use it. But I also rarely use public computers.
  10. This is all nice, and sounds good but you know, one way to get away from toxic gamers is to not force us to play with them. And what I mean by that is that more games are starting to go the "shared world" path, and everything is more co-op this and multiplayer that. Sure it's fine if you've got a nice flexible schedule and your friends match up with you and it all works out. That's not the case for everyone though, my schedule is a mess in the summer, so these types of games are left up to match-making etc. Some times I just want to play a nice single player, offline, game with a good story and not worry about all the online this and loot box that etc. Just saying.

  12. Phil Spencer commits to making gaming more inclusive, announces upcoming features for Xbox by Hamza Jawad Inclusivity and accessibility in gaming is something that is often brought up and can be quite an important factor for many gamers. Last year, Microsoft introduced the Xbox Adaptive Controller that was specifically designed for people with disabilities. Today, Phil Spencer, Executive Vice President of Gaming at Microsoft, committed to making gaming safe and inclusive for everyone. Boldly terming video games a "unifying force for the world", he went on to announce steps that would help solidify this stance. To start off, Spencer reiterated the "fundamental truths" he believes hold in the gaming world. Firstly, that gaming is for everyone and is not limited to age, gender, and the like. Secondly, that a gaming environment must be completely safe and protect the whole community - which is the responsibility of both the gamers, and the gaming industry. He then went on to discuss various benefits brought through the gaming world, whether it might be in the accessibility department, or helping people improve their skills in general. However, he did concede that digital life in today's world brings with it increased toxicity that is unavoidable. In order to work toward a "safe and inclusive gaming environment for everyone", the Xbox Gaming Head has announced full commitment from Microsoft, Team Xbox, and his own end. Three principles have been outlined as part of this commitment: Being vigilant, proactive, and swift Empowering you to safeguard your gaming experience the way you want Committing to working across the gaming industry on safety measures To increase the potential for quick identification and removal of abusive elements on Xbox, Microsoft will be looking to expand the composition of the Xbox Safety Team. The recently refreshed Xbox Community Standards have been specifically noted, while continued rollouts of new health-related programs for the gaming community have been promised. Moving on, upcoming proactive content moderation features for Club community managers to help with the formation of "safe spaces" for gamers have been announced. These new features will be available to everyone by the end of the year. Similarly, it will also soon become easier for parents and guardians to create Child or Teen accounts. With the recent workshops rolled out by Microsoft to help parents better understand tools like these, and now the upcoming changes, the company believes that gamers will have much more control of their own experiences. The tech giant has also committed to open sharing of all safety innovations with the gaming industry. Multiple teams are said to already be working across the industry to reveal insights regarding the best practices that can be adopted where safety, security, and privacy are concerned. At the end, Spencer has urged gamers and industry partners to help implement the aforementioned principles in order to play their part in making gaming more accessible and inclusive.

  14. You know telemetry has been a part of Windows since at least XP. Yep, and no one wanted it even then! No one tossed such a big fit about it till Windows 10 though. And actually, while I agree to the option to have it on or not, some basic level of telemetry is needed or how will they know if a update breaks something? Or if some apps aren't working due to a API change or something? Or if some driver is the cause of a BSOD from a 3rd party hardware maker? I'm perfectly fine with MS collecting basic and anonymous error data so they can fix issues and know what's working and what's not. Because Microsoft said openly they are doing it. Google does it and they try to hide it. I also love that mentality "They should fix Windows first"... How are they supposed to do that when you block all telemetry (so they don't know what went wrong) and don't engage on Technet forums?
  15. You know telemetry has been a part of Windows since at least XP. Which was switched off by default, on windows 10 you cannot switch it off, there is a huge difference. It was not.
  16. Keep repeating a FUD enough and the world will start chanting it as if it's real. They killed millions in Iraq on the FUD of WMD without ever giving a single evidence and then later accepting it. I don't understand how long western countries keep bending their back to this US bs
  17. "instead of google crap" Yeah, because half-baked Chinese software is so much better... I'm no fan of Google but c'mon lol. Remember the Chinese hardware also once used to be half-baked. Now, US companies can only dream to compete with Huawei on that front. Never undermine someone's will power and determination. If they get enough people start using their half-baked crap, they will eventually make it fully baked.
  18. How long have you been under the rock? Or perhaps you are the case study of why people shouldn't watch Fox News?
  19. Why? Because US companies failed to compete? Well, that's another level of shamelessness US is putting nails one by one in its own coffin of "Super Power" status which is more damaging in the longer run for US than anyone else
  20. Google Glass is back with a new Enterprise Edition by Rich Woods First introduced in 2012, Google Glass made its debut as an enterprise device in 2014. Today though, Google announced Glass Enterprise Edition 2, promising that it's faster, better, and more useful. The company noted that it's received a lot of feedback from businesses regarding the device, and it used that feedback to develop the second iteration, something that's common with new form factors like Glass. Glass Enterprise Edition 2 uses Qualcomm's Snapdragon XR1 chipset, which is designed for mixed reality. The ARM chipset has a "multicore CPU" and an AI engine, which should result in better AR performance. There's better camera performance as well, for features like video streaming and collaboration. Most importantly though, Google says that Glass Enterprise Edition 2 is easier to develop for and to deploy. It uses Android, which means that it's easy to port over apps, using the same services and APIs. Also, the device now supports Android Enterprise MDM. You'll also notice that this version of Glass comes with frames, and that's meant to make it safer for "demanding" work environments. Obviously, it also makes it an easy device to pick up for those that wear glasses. If you're interested in Google's Glass Enterprise Edition 2 headset, you can contact a Google sales rep, and it will run you $999.

    Password Methodology

    Yes actually, and no, they're not the same password. For the times I do forget I can fall back to last pass and pull them out, but I'll forgo the random gibberish passwords that get generated and are impossible for a human to remember. And yes, I check my passwords through various tools for security/strength.
