Naughty Dog is pulling a mind trick on its fans with Uncharted: The Lost Legacy.Its heroes are two women who weren’t exactly on the side of good in the previous games in the series.Nathan Drake hung up his grappling hook at the end of Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End as he finally retired from Sony’s award-winning Uncharted action-adventure series.I played a big, open-world style level in the game, and then I interviewed Josh Scherr, the writer of the game, at Sony’s Naughty Dog studio.From what I’ve viewed of the game, the relationship between Frazer and Ross is something we haven’t seen in the series so far.On the first Uncharted I was the cinematics animation lead, but I also worked on story development with Amy and Bruce and Neil.

Step through the stage door of the National Theatre on London's South Bank and you will find yourself in a corridor with a bright yellow floor."We call it the 'yellow brick road'," said George Tunnicliffe, the theatre's head of IT operations, who could be considered the wizard at the heart of this venerable institution."We want those guys to work without having to think about cyber-security and things like that, their job is to put on an awesome production," he said during a backstage tour of the theatre.Mr Tunnicliffe organises its defences against not only the kind of cyber-attacks faced by other companies, but theatre-specific ones like touts trying to grab tickets to popular shows."We've spent a lot of time understanding how everyone works," he said."We have a monitoring board in the IT office so we can see minute-by-minute what's going on and where issues are happening."

As Tom Dale, a senior software engineer at LinkedIn and a JavaScript luminary, more colorfully described it to me, “JavaScript is like the hippie parents who let you have premarital sex and smoke weed.” That sounds great, he notes, even liberating, but “eventually you resent that you didn’t have any structure and now you’re 32 and living in their basement.”Java, by contrast, “is like the super controlling parents who won’t let you drink soda or watch TV.” TypeScript is the happy medium between the two, a fact that has launched it into the top-20 programming languages in a short span of time.JavaScript, as Udell points out, “was never intended for large programs built by teams that use sophisticated tools to manage complex communication among internal modules and external libraries.” Such teams normally default to a strongly typed language like Java, which helps to minimize dumb coding errors.For a variety of reasons, however, we ended up with JavaScript as the lingua franca for web development.Every move is monitored, you can’t make decisions for yourself, and dating is prohibited until after you graduate college.Many people have a breakdown after living with this for so long.” The “parental” intentions may be good, but the impact is decidedly negative.

The evidence for repealing net neutrality rules isn't good enough, Senator Edward Markey (D-Mass.)Pai claims that the rules issued in 2015 are reducing investment in broadband networks, but Markey pointed out during a Senate hearing that ISPs have not reported any dramatic problems to their investors.Publicly traded companies are required by law to provide investors accurate financial information, including reporting any risks or financial burdens.ISPs are quick to tell the FCC and the public that Title II is harming network investment, but they have presented a much rosier view when talking to investors.Publicly traded companies are required to give investors accurate financial information, including a description of risk factors involved in investing in the company.The Senate is also considering the nominations of Republican Brendan Carr and Democrat Jessica Rosenworcel.

Samsung will once again produce the processors Apple needs for the company’s best selling product according to a report from Korea.This move would place Samsung’s chipmaking factories back in line with iPhone hardware after losing their contract with Apple to TSMC in the year 2013.That was a chip contract loss for the history books.The Next iPhone Chip (likely A11)The next iPhone will be rolling with 7-nanometer mobile processor chips in their next smartphone lineup, according to The Investor – part of The Korea Herald.This would come just after the Apple A10 chip with 16nm process, manufactured by TSMC, and the A10X chip with 10 nm process, also manufactured by TSMC.

Do you remember the futuristic movies that showed us what daily life might look like 50 to 100 years from now: the autonomous cars in Minority Report or the drone deliveries and parachuting packages in The Hunger Games?And it continues to grow, with new products and services popping up every day as entrepreneurs scramble to capitalize on society’s desire for convenience.With that said, these new technologies — which have not yet been fully tested — have more than a few inherent risks.To do this and do it right, we need to start thinking about a higher-level network of drones and driverless vehicles.This means taking a look at how they should be deployed, managed, and used so that not only individual consumers benefit from these technologies, but society does as well.For example, it does not make economic or practical sense to send a driver with a car on a two-hour drive to deliver a single package in a rural community, burning through the driver’s time and gas and wearing down the delivery vehicle.

Turning Android into a desktop-like environment is not a simple task, but Jide Technology took a crack at it anyway with Remix OS, which first tasted fresh air with the Ultra Remix tablet back in 2014.Since then, the company not only announced more products with its homegrown Remix OS, but also widened hardware support and what the software can do.In other words, at least on the outside, Jide pushed Remix OS into the consumer space as hard as it could, on both the hardware and software fronts.Alas, that push seems to have been short-lived, since Jide took to its various social media profiles to announce that it would focus solely on the enterprise.Unfortunately for Remix OS fans, a result of the pivot is that Jide is “restructuring [its] approach” to the operating system:Over the past year, we received an increasing number of inquiries from enterprises in various industries, and began helping them build great tools for their organizations by leveraging Jide software and hardware.

According to Pitchbook’s latest analysis, Limited Partners (LPs) remain committed to the asset class with 87 percent of VC funds hitting their targets, tracking 2017 as the ninth consecutive year the percentage of funds to hit their target has increased.On the deal front, value has increased 53 percent since 4Q 2016 as VCs focus on a high number of mega-financings and pull back on the angel and seed stage.On the heels of a record fundraising year in 2016 ($41 billion), LPs continue to show strong interest in the asset class, with 58 VC funds raised in Q2 contributing an additional $11.4 billion of dry powder.Additionally, first-time fund managers hit the ground running in the first half of this year with $1.5 billion raised across 15 funds – the highest level of first-time fundraising activity in the past decade.The increased interest in first-time fund managers is likely attributed to their hyper-focus on specific niche markets attracting investor interest (for example, fintech-focused Centana Growth Markets and real estate-minded Fifth Wall Ventures).What differentiates Q2 from earlier quarters is deal size – Q2 saw 34 transactions of at least $100 million in value, up from just 12 transactions in Q1.

When we talk about robots, it's natural for your mind to turn to the kind of human-shaped droids you may have seen on the silver screen.Such is the case with a robot called Stormram 4, a 3D-printed machine that can perform a biopsy, in which a piece of tissue is removed from under the skin.It's designed to address breast cancer, the most common form of cancer among women.That change gives it "the highest precision compared to other imaging techniques used in the diagnostic phase of breast cancer patients," according to Françoise Siepel, one of the researchers working on the robot.But my own recent experience of undergoing an ultrasound-guided breast biopsy gives me cause to pause rather than immediately welcome the Stormram 4 with open arms.By the time you have the biopsy, a doctor has usually confirmed that yes, you aren't imagining it, there is something there and you don't know what it is.

Good news if you are a fan of secure payment platform PayPal, as today it has announced that you will be able to use it as your preferred payment method on your Apple devices, but only in Mexico or Canada.According to the press release: “other countries including the US [will be coming] soon after”.What this means realistically is just that your money will be coming from PayPal rather than a credit or debit card that you have attached to your iTunes account.But if you are the sort of person who doesn’t like the idea of having your account details being stored on lots of companies servers, it could be a good way to cut that number down by one.Once selected, all “purchases of apps, music, movies, TV shows, and books, as well as Apple Music subscriptions and iCloud storage” will then come from your PayPal account.What’s more, you will benefit from PayPal’s secure One Touch payments, meaning you can make quick and easy payments on your iPhone, iPad and any device connected to your account like the Apple Watch and Apple TV.

Traveling can be a pain, especially when lost luggage, delayed flights and confusing train station layouts are the norm.Japan is hoping to make traveling safer, and maybe even more fun, by adding robots to give a helping mechanical hand at train stations.East Japan Railways last week announced the creation of JRE Robotics Station, a company that will design robots to help travelers navigate train stations and get to their trains on time.Other robots will be designed to carry luggage -- mainly assisting travelers with disabilities, not merely those who hate to lug around heavy suitcases.The robots will also be programmed to understand a variety of languages to accommodate foreign visitors.Other robots will be designed to clean floors and otherwise tidy up the train stations.

For others it is an office suite that challenges Microsoft's Office.Last year, however, the Picasa in the tomb, and the company is now focusing wholeheartedly on the Google Photo, which is a part of Google Drive.this is, of course, smooth, but to only save their photos in the cloud is a bit foolhardy.Although the risk for a Google bankruptcy is hardly imminent, but it is of course possible that you yourself do something stupid.It is easy to in a reckless moment delete an image from the cloud and in the worst case, that means it is gone forever.the basic Idea is, of course, the risk that something will happen at two different places at the same time is small and you want to be extra safe, do you naturally have double backups.

Image Credit: Shutterstock.com / momenteWhile we’re not going to let the bots take over just yet, it’s clear that bots are going to meet our needs, offer proactive advice, and serve us.Technology will try to understand us.The digital revolution was about humans becoming accustomed to using computers all day, connecting with each other over social media, and even more arcane activities like learning how to use Photoshop.I’ve mentioned in the past that technology has stalled out a bit in the automotive sector, based on my testing of around 400 to 500 cars in the past few years.As a foundational concept, it means the car will understand what we want.
