  2. Microsoft unveils the Xbox Series X console, its next-generation Xbox, at The Game Awards by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe In a surprise reveal, Microsoft today gave a first look at the next-generation Xbox console at The Game Awards 2019 show. Phil Spencer stepped out on stage to unveil the Xbox Series X, confirming both the new name and the look of the upcoming device. This is the Project Scarlett console that's been teased by Microsoft for some time now, and in the trailer seen above, we also get a look at the new Xbox Wireless Controller. Microsoft said the following in an accompanying blog post regarding the console: Xbox Series X will be our fastest, most powerful console ever and set a new bar for performance, speed and compatibility, allowing you to bring your gaming legacy, thousands of games from three generations and more forward with you. Its industrial design enables us to deliver four times the processing power of Xbox One X in the most quiet and efficient way, something that is critically important in delivering truly immersive gameplay. Via @majornelson The very PC tower-like shaped console will support horizontal and vertical orientations. The disc drive slot can be seen clearly on the front, while the top of the tower is grated, possibly equipped with some fans for airflow. As for its innards, a custom AMD chip utilizing Zen 2 and RDNA architectures is powering the console, featuring "hardware accelerated ray tracing and a new level of performance never before seen in a console." Microsoft said the console will push 4K 60FPS gameplay, with that possibly bumping up to 120FPS also. Meanwhile, the new controller is very similar to the current Xbox Wireless Controller, but its shape and size have been refined somewhat according to Microsoft. The new d-pad will be similar to the Xbox Elite Series 2 controller's apparatus, while a new dedicated physical Share button has been implemented as well for capturing clips and screenshots. It will come with support for both The Xbox Series X console with the new Xbox Wireless Controller is landing holiday 2020.
  3. How they gonna hit 6 mil... The people that could afford to try it already got theirs. Unless they drop some prices (like they do with all their other phones), there's no way I see them hitting selling another 6 mil in 2020. The best thing it has going for it are the specs. The notch is insane. The outer screen is hilarious. The hinge is still whack, despite the caps they added. What do? 🤷‍♂️
  4. I'm confused... why they announcing this like there aren't any other wireless charging headphones out there? Not really a fan of knock offs. The whole point of competition is to do something different... Features can be the same, but if everything looks the same, there's no point... Many people aren't buying AirPods because of the way they look either, but rather because of how they function with the phone.

    Can't begin to remember when I started using this, been a very long time, but still use it when on a Windows computer.
  6. Exactly my first thought. "Unfortunately, Microsoft didn't actually say when these new icons will be available. Hopefully they all come as one feature update for Windows 10" This is what constitutes a "feature" update? Could care less about what the icons look like anyway. Only look at it long enough to click it. I'd just as soon they stayed the same for familiarity reason.
  7. Nintendo shows off first trailer for No More Heroes III at The Game Awards 2019 by João Carrasqueira Nintendo formally announced No More Heroes III during this year's E3, but the game got little more than a teaser featuring the main character Travis Touchdown. Today, during this year's edition of The Game Awards, Nintendo showed off the first proper trailer for the game. The trailer goes over the plot of the game, telling the story of an alien who used to be friends with a human kid, but left the planet twenty years ago. Now, it seems to have made a habit of destroying planets, and it has returned to wreak havoc on Earth with some of its friends. The trailer sees what appears to be the antagonist of the game describing itself as a superhero, prior to being interrupted by Travis Touchdown. Despite some of the new information, the trailer doesn't show any gameplay, nor does it include a more specific release date. The title is slated to arrive sometime in 2020.

    The Escapists is free to claim on the Epic Games Store

    I've believe I have a Steam key for The Escapists 2, if you have any interest in that. Seems to have great reviews just like the first. PM me if you're interested.

  10. There are some features that don't require Bluetooth (reading SMS messages, getting notifications on the PC). Other features need Bluetooth: Screenmirroring (only available on some Samsung phones, I think?) and the call feature. I don't know this for sure, but I guess Bluetooth is a requirement for calls because it will use Bluetooth to transfer voice data between the devices, so no MS servers should be involved. Screen mirroring no longer requires BT on my Note10+, but the calling feature currently does.

    Collections is now live in Edge Dev and Edge Canary

    I think people overlook the fact that these should work with Office apps, so any item in the collection can then be quickly placed in something like Word/OneNote and so on, to speed up your work. And send that data to Ms, oh what fun. i will keep with my bookmarks, not that I use Edge anyway. And yet you felt the need to come in here and comment about Edge. What do you use anyways? God I hope it's not Chrome if you have such fears about privacy. And why would think MS is "spying" on users collections anyways? I never said anything about "spying." I'm talking about marketers using the metadata collected from Collections. And yeah that's a gold mine for marketers. Now if you think it's "spying" ok.

    Collections is now live in Edge Dev and Edge Canary

    I think people overlook the fact that these should work with Office apps, so any item in the collection can then be quickly placed in something like Word/OneNote and so on, to speed up your work. I suppose that could be a use. But I'm trying to think of how often some one would want to collection things off websites just to export them to Word/OneNote? I use OneNote a lot at work and home. But I haven't sent a collection of things from website to it. I've saved some sites or articles in doing research to OneNote but not things like headphones or items I'm shopping for. It's just been URLs, linkes to sites.
  13. Have you tried turning on Anti-lag and RBoost at the same time on my card I get only one or the other but not both

    What solves world hunger and over population

    Eugenics??? It should be like the Hunger Games though, that would at least be a merit based selection pool.

  22. FTC might block Facebook's plans to unify its messaging infrastructure by João Carrasqueira Earlier this year, Facebook announced plans to merge the messaging infrastructure across Facebook Messenger, Instagram, and WhatsApp, which would make it possible for users to communicate across the different platforms. It looks like those plans might be stopped in their tracks, though, according to a report from the Wall Street Journal (via Reuters). According to the report, the United States Federal Trade Commission is considering an injunction against Facebook due to concerns over how the company's policies on how its apps interact might violate antitrust law. The injunction could stop Facebook from enforcing policies on how its apps interact with rivals or integrate with each other. Specifically, Facebook could be prevented from merging the messaging infrastructure. The injunction could be filed as early next month, per the report. The stock market didn't respond well to the news, with Facebook shared dropping by 4% during today's trading as a result, according to Business Insider. Neither Facebook nor the FTC made any comments on the report. Facebook has had its share of legal trouble in recent years, and tech companies in general have been under scrutiny recently. Earlier this year, the Department of Justice announced it would be conducting an investigation on numerous companies, including Facebook, Google, and Amazon.

    I'm very happy with this program for many years. It starts up fast and does a lot and has great batch actions and shortcuts to open the file in different editors. That said it needs a new default toolbar.
  24. Not worth giving up those profits to telcos, and there would be more strings attached than we’d want. The ad driven model works for almost all companies, even if we hate them. Not if we block them
