Veteran game maker Sega announced it was getting back into the hardware game at the Sega FES 2018 event over the weekend, with a shrunken version of its classic Megadrive (or Genesis) console.In an announcement in no way connected to the success of Nintendo’s SNES Mini, Sega might well have been inspired by the tried and trusted formula of preloading a bunch of elderly games into what could well to be an emulator running inside a retro plastic shell.Of course, we have no insight into what software and hardware will be used.Sega hopes to get the device on sale this year, in time for the 30th anniversary of the Japanese launch of the original console.European residents with long memories will remember the frustration of having to wait the additional two years until the Mega Drive arrived on UK shores.Hopefully eager buyers will not face the same delay this time around.

The other is repeatedly reminding the world that he’s still not over Game of Thrones cutting one of his favourite characters from the novels: Lady Stoneheart.Michelle Fairley as Catelyn Stark in slightly happier, slightly less dead, times on Game of Thrones.Stoneheart—the resurrected, undead form of Catelyn Stark who, in Martin’s books, becomes the vengeful leader of the Brotherhood Without Banners, turning them into a bloodthirsty force enacting executions across the Riverlands for criminals she perceives as having aided the Lannisters enact the infamous Red Wedding—should have shown up by around Game of Thrones’ fourth season in 2014.But she didn’t, and despite constant fan speculation about her arrival, she has yet to show up even as the HBO series barrels along to its conclusion.Back when her storyline would’ve made the most sense to appear, the team behind the show made it pretty clear that they didn’t ever consider bringing Catelyn back as Lady Stoneheart, but that has not stopped fans from asking about her.And it’s certainly hasn’t stopped her most prominent fan, Martin himself, from spending the last few years telling the press that he’s sad the show left her behind.

The growing dominance of a few cloud infrastructure players could put pressure on enterprises, argues GartnerGartner has warned enterprises to be wary of the growing influence of the biggest cloud infrastructure vendors, as a growing market is set to hand them an ever more dominant proportion of sales.Cloud-based infrastructure, or Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), is the fastest growing part of the cloud market, set to grow 35.9 percent this year to $40.8 billion (£28.7bn) and to $83.5bn by 2021, Garter forecast.It expects the broader cloud market to be worth more than $302bn by the same date.The largest 10 providers, including Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft and Google, accounted for half of all infrastructure sales in 2016, a figure set to rise to 70 percent by 2021.That could pose problems for their clients, for whom a competitive market is preferable, Gartner said.

You've ditched the CDs, have your vinyl lined up like ornaments and use your cassette tape as a skipping rope.Streaming has totally taken over the way we listen to music, but the monthly fee for services like Spotify can still burn a little.However, if you're looking to be both a Spotify Premium AND PlayStation Plus subscriber through a PS4 console, you can get a chunk of change off that monthly cost.Simply set up your Spotify subscription through the Sony service, and you can knock ten percent off the monthly fee.So in the UK, that brings the price down from £9.99 a month to £8.99, and in the US it's similarly down from $9.99 to $8.99.Now, that's just a £12 / $12 saving, but every little helps, right?

Another is the former licensing chief at Apple and current CEO of Conversant, one of the non-practicing entity (NPE) patent licensing companies that have been a target of Ira Blumberg’s criticism.And the third is president of Swiss-neutral patent pool operator Via Licensing, who has criticized companies on both sides of the patent wars for their gamesmanship, lack of transparency, and litigiousness.Unless we find a way out of this conflict, we will almost certainly see a repeat of yesterday’s costly and wasteful smartphone wars in tomorrow’s wireless connected car sector.Product makers accuse patent owners of threatening lawsuits and using the expense of the legal process in order to demand extortionate royalties for their patent rights.This only ensures that both sides suffer a negative outcome in outrageously-expensive litigation.But what’s fair or reasonable about the fact that an impossibly-large number of LTE (4G) cellular patents — more than 60,000, in fact — have been declared “standards essential” without any independent evaluation of those patents whatsoever?

PayPal is looking to expand into something closer to a real bank, according to a report in The Wall Street Journal.It’s beginning to roll out more traditional banking services to customers, including ATM-compatible debit cards, direct depositing paychecks, and FDIC insurance.How PayPal can actually do this is fascinating since it doesn’t actually have a banking license in the US.According to The Wall Street Journal, the company is getting around that by quietly partnering with several small banks that can provide those services.So behind the scenes, it’s not PayPal running these services, but a Delaware bank handles debit cards, a bank in Georgia deposits checks that users take pictures of, and banks in Utah offer loans to customers and small businesses.So far, PayPal has only been offering the features to a small group of customers.

Scenes from the BBC's 2011 series Human Planet were faked in part, the corporation has admitted, with the local tribespeople revealing that they pretended to need a new treehouse in order to give the film crew something interesting to record.This particular tribe in Papua New Guinea seems to have become the go-to tribe for BBC documentary makers, as the revelation of past BBC fakery came while a new programme featuring the supposed tree-dwelling Korowai people was being filmed.One of the Korowai told the latest documentary crew that they erected a new house in the trees "...for the benefit of overseas programme makers," although it wasn't specified whether the crew specifically requested a house building sequence or if the tribespeople, ever keen to help, decided themselves to build something to entertain the incomers.The BBC has confirmed it broadcast something not entirely genuine, with a spokesperson saying: "During the making of BBC Two’s upcoming documentary series My Year With The Tribe, a member of the tribe discusses how they have built very high treehouses for the benefit of overseas programme makers.The BBC has reviewed a sequence in Human Planet depicting this and found that the portrayal of the tribe moving into the treehouse as a real home is not accurate."

My 2018 Land Rover Range Rover Sport SVR is wearing aggressive summer tires that are barely at home in the rain, let alone grass and mud.Throttle down, persistent acceleration and furious V8 noise -- the hottest Land Rover makes it to the crest with very little drama.The rear end gets integrated tailpipes, which look nice and don't mess with the Sport's off-road-friendly departure angle.They don't take long to get used to, although I do lament the loss of physical switches.For this Sport SVR, Land Rover massages its 5.0-liter supercharged V8, too.Despite a curb weight north of 5,000 pounds, the SVR will hit 60 miles per hour in 4.3 seconds, which borders on black magic when you feel the acceleration come on.

Cybercriminals who ran off with info on five million payment cards from Saks Fifth Avenue (including its discount brand) and Lord & Taylor databases appear to be preparing to sell them on the dark web, according to a Sunday report from Gemini Advisory.The majority of the stolen payment cards were taken from stores in New York and New Jersey, though as Engadget noted, three Canadian stores in Toronto, Brampton, and Pickering could have been targeted.Gemini wrote that “the preliminary analysis suggests that criminals were siphoning the information between May 2017 to present.” They added a group named Fin7, which markets stolen credit information on a hub called Joker’s Stash that reportedly advertises millions of stolen cards, is currently listing 125,000 of the stolen accounts for sale but more will likely be released in coming months.Hudson’s Bay Company, which owns the chains in questions, confirmed the breach on Sunday.It wrote in a statement that customers would not be held liable for any charges, will offer free identity protection services to those affected once the situation has “more clarity around the facts,” and has “taken steps to contain” the scope of the breach.According to the New York Times, the card data was likely obtained by sending phishing emails to retail employees.

BMW has an ambitious plan to launch 25 electrified vehicles by the year 2025, 12 of which will be pure EVs.Stefan Juraschek, BMW's head of electric powertrain development, isn't the least bit worried.Speaking to Roadshow at the New York Auto Show last week, Juraschek said that this will all be possible thanks to a new modular architecture that'll launch in in 2021."It's a little bit complicated to bring batteries inside the conventional cars," Juraschek said."We are developing modular kits from the components side, together with the new architectures from the vehicle side."In other words, in addition to modular vehicle architecture, the electrified powertrains themselves will be scalable.
