The history of video games has seen many fine upstanding leaders, prime ministers and presidents.Stoic Marion Bosworth from Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 who instigates the fight back against cyber terrorist Raul Menendez; The President in Saint s Row IV who must defend their country against an alien invasion; and who can forget President Ronnie in Bad Dudes who remains steadfast in his love of burgers, even after being kidnapped by DragonNinja?But sometimes these digitised demagogues fare less well, and understandably, it s these more troublesome characters that have come to mind this week.Howard T Ackerman, Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3You had one job: In an alternate 20th century timeline where Japan seeks world domination, Ackerman is tasked with forging an alliance with the Soviets to mount a defence of Europe.Impeachment rating: pretty much the nightmare scenario.

the Panasonic stoppers looks really not like all the others.They have a very high-tech look with its shimmering shell where through slots expect a red-hot internal.A problem with the rather large plugs is that they stand out a bit from the ear.One advantage with the very simple remote is that it works both with Android and iOS.the Downside is that you can't control much, not even the volume.the Reason the plugs become relatively large is that the Panasonic has squeezed in an extra set of voice coils and neodymium magnets.

Sony has announced that its PlayStation VR headset can now be used to watch YouTube s 360-degree videos.The videos are exactly what they sound like — the 360-degree videos that have been available for watching via Cardboard and other headsets.Following its launch in October, PlayStation VR now finally supports those videos, bringing another element of entertainment to the platform.In the grand scheme of things, it is a simple update, but a very welcomed one considering how popular YouTube is and how many high-quality 360-degree videos it has.These videos, when watched with a VR headset, allow the user to look around within the video and experience it in a generally life-like though not truly 3D way.As with some other headsets, the PlayStation VR can be used to create a virtual personal big screen experience, watching whatever you d like in proper isolation in what, in some cases, is designed to look like a proper theater room.

After The Ridiculous 6 proved to be a hit for Netflix, the streaming giant is continuing to bet on that film's star, Adam Sandler.Adam Sandler will soon deliver the third film in his four-movie deal with Netflix.The streamer has dropped a new teaser trailer for Sandy Wexler, a comedy set in 1990s Los Angeles that stars Sandler as the titular character.The teaser gives a roughly 30-second look at Wexler, a talent manager and apparently somewhat oblivious guy.He is shown interrupting production on a film set, and then being escorted away by security after he continues to create problems for the cast and crew.Not surprisingly, the character is a little over-the-top, not picking up on the fact that the camera is rolling, even after being explicitly told as much.

There s nothing worse than driving to a busy downtown megaplex and coming to the sudden, horrifying realization that there aren t any parking spaces in sight.It can easily ruin a night if you re pressed for time, and that s why the ever-astute Google is prepping salvation: Parking availability alerts in Google Maps.References to parking alerts were first discovered in a teardown of the beta version of Google Maps by Android Police, and now the outlet is reporting that the feature is rolling out to some users through the Maps v9.44 beta.Those alerts will do exactly what you d expect it to: Indicate how difficult finding a parking space is likely to be in a given locale.The app will describe congestion in levels of increasing severity, easy, medium, and hard, and provide descriptions for each.Parking availability will be shown through a small P icon next to the driving duration estimate.

Samsung has finally completed its investigation into why a number of Samsung Galaxy Note 7 handsets exploded, with the findings anything but surprising.Although Samsung is still yet to share its official word on the investigation, a person familiar with the matter has confirmed to Reuters that the battery, as expected, was indeed to blame.The internal tipster, who was not authorised to speak on the findings and so requested to remain anonymous, claimed issues with production of the phone s batteries had triggered the worryingly dangerous events.This rules out the possibility, as suggested by some experts, that the aggressively thin design of the phone was to blame for the fires.Blamed for causing cars, houses and even people s clothing to catch fire, the safety concerns saw Samsung quickly issue a global recall for the 5.7-inch device.The phone was also banned from airlines for fear of causing an on-board fire.

Does this only mechanically interface over an SODIMM slot or could you program something to read its RAM slot but actually be reading the values from this?I'm not sure what application I have in mind but it seems like that's a path to coherent heterogenous computing where not only is the memory shared between devices but one device is actually operating on the memory of another device perhaps at a basic level like the OS.It is just reusing the form factor to reduce integration costs.If you try plugging one into a SODIMM DDR2 memory slot you will probably end up releasing the magic smoke that makes it work.It wasn't intended to do that.I imagine the reason for picking DDR2 not DDR3 or 4 is to reduce the chance of someone doing exactly that and blowing up both the host and the compute board.

In addition, Bloomberg reports, "Essential's engineers are developing a proprietary connector that serves double duty for charging the battery and expanding the phone's functionality over time, one person familiar with the planning said.The magnetic connector would allow Essential or even third parties to create hardware accessories that add features to the smartphone."At the turn of the millennium, the Bluetooth industry was keen on PANs Personal Area Network and "piconets", which anticipated much of today's mobile and IoT gadgetry: device would mediate with device.Although the PAN vision was never fulfilled, smartphones today arguably conduct much of the work of a "device hub" anyway.LG admitted that its Friends expansion slot didn't help sales of its flagship.And the concept faces several challenges: the first generation of IoT has failed to enthuse the mass market, and its rotten security has raised economic and privacy concerns.

The "Dark Web" is a hidden corner of the internet that is home to many things people want to keep in the shadows: drugs, counterfeits, stolen items, and so on.But there are also far stranger elements.A popular thread on Reddit once asked the simple question, "What's your Deep Web story?" In other words, the Reddit user was asking people to share any weird experiences they had encountered while using anonymous web services to access secret websites.Services like Tor, which mask a user's identity and let them browse the internet anonymously, give access to a slew of websites better known as the Dark Web or Deep Web .These sites won't work on a typical web browser like Google Chrome.Silk Road is the prototypical example of a Dark Web site, a now-closed black market for goods, whose notorious founder is now in prison.Silk Road is closed, but what else is out there?Here are some of the bizarre and creepy things you can stumble on when accessing the dark underbelly of the web, as told by the people who actually experienced them.The post is based on a previous post by Cale Guthrie Weissman.

Nearly six years after Apple first sued Samsung for patent infringement, the ongoing legal battle between the two tech behemoths shows no signs of slowing down.Even though all of the devices that were at issue in the original case are completely outdated, the two companies are still engaged in a bitter dispute regarding damages.Following a recent Supreme Court ruling that wiped $399 million in damages from Samsung s original bill to Apple, MacRumors reports that the two companies will now head down to the U.S. Court of Appeals where a more precise determination will be made as to how much money Samsung owes Apple for infringing upon the look and feel of the iPhone.Before diving in, it s worth noting what is and what isn t in dispute here: That Samsung released a handful of devices that infringed upon a swath Apple patents is not open for debate, but what remains unresolved is how the damages for said infringement should be calculated.Whereas Samsung believes that Apple should only be entitled to damages based on the portions of its accused devices that actually infringe, Apple maintains that it s entitled to all of the profits Samsung enjoyed from its infringing devices.Previously, Apple quoted Congress while arguing that it is the design that sells the article and that it s practically impossible to attribute profits to a specific portion of a device.

Corporate veteran to re-invigorate big-data salesHortonworks has named Raj Verma as its new president and chief operating officer in the latest of a string of shakeups designed to reinvigorate the Hadoop business following sliding sales.The Santa Clara-based business announced the departure of its former president, Herb Cunitz, alongside its second-quarter results last year.At the time, Cunitz was bid a polite farewell by CEO Rob Bearden, whose comments made more mention of Cunitz's own ambitions to become a CEO and less of the company's deepening operating losses.The roles of president and chief operating officer have been vacant until now.Verma will arrive on Monday into the relative vacuum of Hortonworks' sales departments, with a number of workers being laid off last year as part of what the company described as "a shifting sales model".
