Red Dead Redemption, the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 cowboy simulator, has never come to PC, and that has always upset Rockstar fans who prefer the more powerful platform. But as Dr. Ian Malcolm always says, “life finds a way.” Red Dead Redemption V …

Apple gets all the attention, but Android remains the world’s biggest operating system. You find it everywhere, which means it absolutely must work on devices of every size, shape, and spec. Now that you can use Android apps on ChromeOS, that opens them up to gadgets with trackpads, keyboards, pens, and who knows what else. Android works in your car, on your TV, and on your face. All of which makes being an Android dev complicated, and gives Google a lot to consider as it works on upgrades. Google just released a few tidbits about the next version of Android, which arrives later this year and is known for now as Android O. (Not that I’m speculating, but Android Oreo? Android …

Everything is a stew of contradictions. It’s slow and it’s thrilling. It’s silly and it’s clever. It’s strange and it’s familiar. Everything was created by artist David OReilly, who worked on the video game animations in the movie Her. His only previous game, Mountain, was about being a mountain. Not much happened, but it was a welcome curiosity. This game is a lot bigger than Mountain. It’s one of the most extraordinary games I’ve ever played, a magical playpen of being, rather than doing. The premise of Everything is simple. I begin as a pig, roaming green hillsides. I come close to another thing: a rock, a frog, a plant; it doesn’t matter. Let’s say it’s an oak tree. I …

Craig’s first major break in the case came in September 2009. With the help of some industry experts, he identified a New York–based server that seemed to play some sort of role in the Zeus network. He obtained a search warrant, and an FBI forensics team copied the server’s data onto a hard drive, then overnighted it to Nebraska. When an engineer in Omaha examined the results, he sat in awe for a moment. The hard drive contained tens of thousands of lines of instant message chat logs in Russian and Ukrainian. Looking over at Craig, the engineer said: “You have their Jabber server.” This was the gang’s whole digital operation—a road map to the entire case. The cybersecurity firm …

Mass Effect 2 is one of the best games ever. But as 2017 rages on with one hit after another, I’m not sure BioWare’s sci-fi epic would hang anymore. And that’s a problem for the studio’s Mass Effect: Andromeda, the latest entry in the series out March 21 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, because it is no Mass Effect 2. What you’ll like Fun combat Andromeda takes Mass Effect and its conceits to a new galaxy. You leave Commander Shepherd, the hero who ended the last trilogy as a mythological savior (and a band of hot aliens) behind in the Milky Way. After 600 years of travel in cryostasis, your character — you choose either the male or …

Magic Leap, the virtual reality backlash and the arc of technology

In Business, Gaming, Government, Start Up by Venture BeatLeave a Comment

Tech News Keywords: , , , ,

Magic Leap has drawn more than $1.4 billion in investment. There’s also some troubling reports regarding demos and delays that are getting a lot of press. I know a game designer who works there, and I still believe they could pull it off. But when a Google search for “magic leap fail” turns up about 670,000 results, one has to admit that the prospect of failure exists. It’s not just Magic Leap who faces failure. The total shipments in 2016 for VR gear has disappointed a number of people in and outside the sector. Why all the press?  Think about NASCAR automobile racing.  The most popular answer to the Quora question “Why do people watch NASCAR?” is: “Crashes, mostly.

Why Apple should make its Pencil work with the iPhone

In Business, Gaming, Government, Mobile Technology by Venture BeatLeave a Comment

Tech News Keywords: , , , ,

Apple has a choice to make. Will it make its Apple Pencil stylus compatible with devices other than its high-end iPad Pro tablets? I think it should. In 2015, when Apple first unveiled the Pencil, people wondered why the stylus wouldn’t work with non-Pro iPads, let alone iPhones. Then, in 2016, when Apple announced the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, people wondered why Apple didn’t make the phone capable of supporting the Pencil. Now Apple is said to be planning its third iPad Pro. It’s reasonable to expect Pencil support on the new 10.5-inch iPad Pro. But will Apple make an oh-by-the-way announcement about expanded support for Pencil after revealing the new slab? Unlikely. If anything, Apple could finally bring …

Enlarge Keith Allison reader comments 21 Share this story AT&T this week acknowledged that DirecTV has been charging the wrong regional sports fees to some customers and is now issuing bill credits to those who paid more because of the mistake. “We have identified a small percentage of customers who are receiving some inaccurate bills for regional sports network fees,” an AT&T spokesperson told Ars yesterday. “We are working as quickly as possible to notify those customers and issue credits.

Samsung’s reach stretches across nearly every part of the home, from appliances to televisions, computers, tablets, light bulbs, and smartphones. And the company isn’t stopping there — it’s also extending itself into third-party connected devices through its SmartThings offering. And as it builds out an ecosystem for the home, the next step is to offer a way for consumers to communicate with the devices in a way that feels normal. “At a greater level, you have to think about how to make the voice technology easy to use and user-friendly so everyone embraces the technology,” remarked Won-Jin Lee, Samsung’s executive vice president for its video display business. In an interview with VentureBeat, he explained the way to accomplish this is with …
