I swear if my PS4 is DOA I will rage quit life after the nonsense I've had to deal with my X1 :no:

Amazon wouldn't post my review about my BLOD. Maybe I will pick one up when it becomes available in Korea in December, but it seems like there aren't any real stand out games that I am missing out on. At this point the PS4 seems like something just to experiment with until the really good games start rolling out.

 

I forgot to mention the packing on mine too. The box was too big and the bubble wrap loosely placed in the box. My box had been taped up a second time so I guess the PS4 slid around against the top during transit until it finally just broke out of the box, and USPS put it back in and taped the box back up. That could of been the cause of my BLOD too.

I hope the one I got is okay. I'm tempted to open it up and test it. I'm not one to open gifts before I give them but I'd hate for it to turn out bad on Christmas day :/

I remember when mine showed that..  Started at 6AM on the 15th... ended at 11PM on the 15th (when it did finally ship).  I checked the status every hour.  Yep.. was 3 days after launch before I actually got it.

3 days, yay! Got my copy of AC4 from Currys for ?26. There was a ?20 off xboxone code that wasn't suppose to go public, looks like Currys honored most of the purchases with it as well.

 

At launch I'll have KZ, AC4, Resogun and all the other PS+/PS3 title ports (likes of Flower/Sound Shapes).

 

 

Assassin's Creed series has never been my thing.  I tried to give the AC-I and AC:II a whirl.... Could never get into the series...

Glad everyone is getting there consoles now. I feel bad, I got mine on launch day and I've barely touched it. Work has been absolutely ridiculous, and now that I'm actually home on Thanksgiving I have a ton of things to catch up on at the house. :laugh: Hoping to get to play a little later.

It's actually good for me, the area I want to put it needs to be cleaned up and I've been really lazy, gives me a couple more days.

      Microsoft Stores for Business and Education are not supported in Windows 11
      by Usama Jawad

      Back in March, we speculated that Microsoft may be killing off the Microsoft Store for Business and Education soon, due to the fact that it had stated that users will not be allowed to purchase paid apps from April 14. The move had been previously rumored to kick off in June 2020 but the pandemic put a dent in those plans, and it seems that Microsoft pushed the date forward internally. Today, the firm has categorically confirmed that the Microsoft Store for Business and Education will not be supported on Windows 11 - which is scheduled for a release later this year.



      Starting from the first half of 2022, customers will be able to find and deploy applications to their managed devices using Microsoft Intune or their unified endpoint management (UEM) solution. For unmanaged devices, deployment is possible via the WinGet tool in Windows Package Manager. This will be applicable to all existing and new app types coming to the redesigned Microsoft Store experience.

      In light of the above, Microsoft Store for Business and Education are being killed off in the first quarter of 2023. The portals will not be supported in Windows 11 but admins can still utilize UEM solutions to harness the connection to the respective portals, and use it to deploy apps to managed Windows 11 devices, until the Stores are retired completely in 2023.

      Windows Package Manager can be used to query and centrally deploy private and public apps to Windows 10 devices, and the same capability will be present on Windows 11. UEM solutions can be utilized to manage repositories. A preview for these capabilities will be released in the first half of 2022, with general availability targeted for the second half of 2022.

      The overall and simplified timeline for this evolution in the commercial app deployment process is outlined below:

      The company also has a list of useful FAQs on its announcement blog post for you to peruse if you're affected by these changes.

      Google is deprecating Play Services support for Android Jelly Bean
      by Usama Jawad

      Google announced Android Jelly Bean in June 2012. The update spanned across Android versions 4.1 to 4.3.1 released in 2013, and was followed up by version 4.4, dubbed "KitKat". Now, after nine years of support, the firm is finally deprecating Play Services support for the operating system.



      Google has explained that Android Jelly Bean is currently present on less than 1% of active devices and considering that the OS does not support a bunch of modern capabilities, developers have to spend a lot of time on workarounds. As such, it is deprecating support for Google Play Services on this flavor of the OS. APK version 21.30.99 scheduled for release in August will be the last supported version.

      This change affects developers utilizing API levels 16, 17, 18 as the minimum version in their SDK. While the functionality present in existing versions of the SDK will continue to work, newer components may not support these API levels, which means that developers will be hit with errors when trying to build their app.

      There are two workarounds for this problem. The first and obvious one is to change the minimum SDK level to 19. The impact of this is that users on Android Jelly Bean and older devices will not be able to see or download updates to the app. That said, given the few number of users actively using these devices, Google does not believe that this impact will be massive. The second workaround involves building multiple flavors of your app. One version for modern devices and the other for legacy handsets. Of course, there are compatibility caveats to consider with this approach as well, so we recommend that you have a look at Google's documentation here.
