Microsoft turns Flash on by default for Windows 8 and Windows RT

first_imgSince the launch of Windows 8 and Windows RT, users haven’t had wide-open access to Adobe Flash content on the web. Microsoft had opted to restrict Flash playback to certain sites that it believed to offer an acceptable “Windows experience for touch.”That’s changed today, with Microsoft announcing that Flash playback will now be switched on by default for Internet Explorer 10 on both Windows 8 and Windows RT. The change applies to both the immersive and desktop versions of IE10 On Windows 8. Additionally, the IE10 desktop browser on Windows 8 will play all Flash content by default.Other versions of Internet Explorer 10 will follow a new list. While most content should just play, certain sites that are known to be incompatible will be blacklisted. Microsoft says it’s a small list, but doesn’t offer any specifics. If you happen to stumble across a site that streams video using Flash and it doesn’t work, you’ll know you found an IE10 blacklist entry.One reason Microsoft cites for making the change now is that web developers have clearly been working hard to make sure their Flash-based apps are working well with Windows 8. Fewer than 4% of the thousands of domains that Microsoft tests for compatibility are still causing issues just six months after the Windows 8 retail launch.It’s an interesting about-face. Microsoft was accused of trying to put the final nail in the Flash coffin last October, since its whitelisting approach had the potential to create a content delivery nightmare for sites that weren’t quite as well-known as Disney or ESPN. Now, it turns out that Microsoft wants to make sure that more of the web “just works” with Windows 8.last_img read more

After Bungie and Destiny Please Free Blizzard From Activision

first_imgStay on target The Current State of Destiny 2Hands-On: Destiny 2 is Destiny, Too Our hearts go out to the nearly 800 employees recently laid off from Activision Blizzard, a company that failed to meet its expectations despite record revenue in our very cool current economic system. But while now there may be fewer Blizzard workers now left to save, they are still worth saving. Or, you know, unionize.Bungie has always had a complicated relationship with authority. The Marathon games were a highlight of Mac gaming, so much so that in 1999 Steve Jobs himself helped unveiled its spiritual successor Halo to the Apple faithful. But the next year Bungie was bought out by Microsoft and now-exclusive Halo single-handedly made the original Xbox a console worth owning. Ten years later though, Bungie split from Microsoft, and although they were forced to leave Halo behind, the developer’s new ten-year contract with Activision gave them total ownership of their next seismic sci-fi shooter: Destiny.Now, about ten years after that, Bungie dropped the bomb that they are ending their partnership with Activision and taking Destiny with them. The publisher that only puts out like three games is going to put out one less game. Supporting a huge (if extremely uneven) franchise like Destiny without the support of one of the world’s biggest video game publishers is going to be difficult.But based on how positive the reaction has been from Bungie employees and Destiny fans alike, freedom from Activision’s dumb package goods demands sounds totally worth it for the game and its live future. And if that’s the case, there’s another company that also deserves to be free from Moneyball’s Bobby Kotick and his craven video game assembly line: Blizzard.In 2008, not that long before Bungie jumped ship from Microsoft, Activision merged with Vivendi games giving the Call of Duty company rights over new franchises like Crash Bandicoot and Spyro the Dragon. But the biggest piece of the pie was Blizzard, riding high on World of Warcraft’s Earth-shattering success. The new company was renamed Activision Blizzard, reflecting who really mattered.Fortunately, for years it seemed as if gamers could hardly notice that one of the most despised publishers in the business had merged with one of the most beloved developers in the business. As Activision kept running franchises like Guitar Hero and Tony Hawk into the ground with aggressive and unnecessary annual releases, Blizzard continued releasing games at its own famously relaxed and methodical pace. StarCraft 2, Diablo 3, and new WoW expansions may have had their issues among the super hardcore, but their sheer craft and quality meant the brands themselves weren’t poisoned, not even by bad live-action movies about famous orcs.Heck, even Blizzard’s weird small experiments turned into new cash cows. Who knew so many people would be down with a reimagined collectible card game like Hearthstone or a streamlined MOBA like Heroes of the Storm. They even managed to make their first new franchise in years, the colorful hero shooter Overwatch, into a crucial fixture of modern gaming culture after picking the bones of their failed MMO Titan. Although now in retrospect that game’s aggressive lootboxes should’ve clued us in to Activision’s creeping negative influence as reported on sites like Kotaku.Very recently though Blizzard just makes me sad, almost in a Valve way. But whereas Valve’s problems are more complex, Blizzard’s seem to simply trace back to the publicly traded Activision overlords. Longtime Blizzard CEO Mike Morhaime has essentially left the company. We’re seeing increasing reports of financial executives having more of a say over creative aspects game development. Former employees are speaking out about workplace harassment.And it keeps going. Remember the stupid drama over Diablo Immortal? There’s the mystery surrounding the quick hiring and firing of CFO Spencer Neumann who just moved to Netflix. Projects like Heroes of the Storm have abruptly had funding pulled, greatly hurting loyal eSports community. And in general we keep hearing there’s more pressure on Blizzard from Activision to make more with less, to get closer to the annual release model that’s already killed Activision’s other franchises.Maybe World of Warcraft is so old and not what it used to be that it just can’t protect Blizzard anymore. Maybe the two halves of the companies are just too entwined to keep the bad parts of one from affecting the other. But if it’s at all possible, we’d love for Blizzard to pull a Bungie and escape from Activision while taking all of its toys with them. Gamers can live without Call of Duty Black Ops 4 on Battle.net. Besides, Activision will be fine. This is the same company that spent nearly $6 billion on King, the makers of Candy Crush Saga. They probably won’t even notice the loss.If that doesn’t work, Blizzard, like all game developers and really all workers, should just form a union.center_img 1.

The Gift of Lift broadens reach forming new partnerships

first_imgDonate a bra, change a life.The Gift of Lift premise is simple: Donate your new and gently used bras, and The Gift of Lift will get them into the hands of women who need them most. Some are shipped to nonprofit organizations across the United States. Others are taken on medical missions to foreign countries. And a portion of them are distributed locally, given to organizations and schools that serve women and girls who may not be able to afford brassieres.“Gift of Lift has made a lot of impact,” said Michelle Bart, president and co-founder of National Women’s Coalition Against Violence and Exploitation.Since its inception in late 2011, The Gift of Lift has collected about 15,000 bras, Bart said. In the two and a half years since her organization took over the program, more than 12,000 bras have been collected and distributed to women in need.“It’s a really positive experience,” said Robin Helm, Gift of Lift coordinator. “Bras are intimate. When you share an intimate garment with another woman, it brings your hearts closer.”Nonprofit groupThe Gift of Lift effort was launched by Dr. Allen Gabriel, a Vancouver plastic surgeon, who hoped to collect 500 bras to take with him on a trip to Haiti. The community responded in a big way, donating more than 2,000 bras in a few months.last_img read more

Kellen Winslow II released from Vista jail after posting 2 million bail

first_img Posted: July 13, 2018 Kellen Winslow II released from Vista jail after posting $2 million bail Updated: 6:16 PM KUSI Newsroom July 13, 2018center_img VISTA (KUSI) — Hours after he was ordered to stand trial for allegedly kidnapping and raping two women in his hometown of Encinitas, Kellen Winslow II posted $ 2 million bail and was released from jail Friday.Winslow, 34, the son of San Diego Chargers legend Kellen Winslow, will remain on house arrest and GPS monitoring while awaiting trial.On Thursday, after a two-day preliminary hearing, Vista Judge Harry Elias said enough evidence was presented for Winslow II to face felony charges of kidnapping, forcible rape, forcible oral copulation and forcible sodomy, and misdemeanor counts of indecent exposure and trespassing. The defendant was then immediately arraigned on a new complaint charging him with forcible rape and rape of an unconscious 17-year-old minor in 2003.Winslow II faces life in prison if convicted.In the case filed last month, Winslow II is accused of luring a 54- year-old transient — who was hitchhiking — into his Hummer for a ride, then raping her on March 17.Prosecutors also allege that the defendant picked up a 58-year-old homeless woman that he knew from a prior encounter and offered to take her to have coffee on May 13, but instead took her to a secluded area and raped her, then threatened to kill her if she told anyone.Another woman testified Wednesday that a man — later identified as Winslow II — rode his bicycle up to her home, asked her if she was married, then took off his pants in front of her. The 58-year-old Cardiff-by-the-Sea resident said she was cutting flowers in her yard the afternoon of May 24 when he came up and said hello.The woman — identified as Jane Doe 3 — said she recognized the man from a similar encounter two weeks earlier, in which he told her his name was “David” and that he lived up the street.She said Winslow II asked if she was married. “I told him I was.”The woman testified that in the May 24 encounter, she greeted Winslow II and then walked toward her orange tree and noticed he was following her. That’s when he took of his pants, she said.A 71-year-old woman — identified as Jane Doe 4 — said she learned of Winslow II’s arrest when watching a newscast on June 8 and noticed that he the same man who had entered her home the day before.Jane Doe 4 said she called the sheriff’s department at the urging of a friend, even though she didn’t feel like Winslow II was ever going to harm her. She said she thought he was at the wrong mobile home park looking for someone.A sheriff’s deputy testified that he responded to a mobile home park on North El Camino Real the afternoon of June 7 after a woman said she saw a stranger inside her 86-year-old neighbor’s house.The woman confronted the stranger — identified as Winslow II — as he came outside, according to the deputy.“He said he was looking for his red dog named Flipper,” the deputy testified.The octogenarian who lived in the mobile home where Winslow II was seen was asleep on a couch and her 86-year-old husband was out walking the dog when the defendant was inside, according to court testimony.Winslow II grew up in San Diego and attended the University of Miami. He played for four NFL teams between 2004 and 2013.A Superior Court arraignment was set for Aug. 25.

Opposition strong in Dunleavy budget testimony in Bethel

first_imgBethel resident Vicki Malone testifies against Gov. Dunleavy’s budget on March 23, 2019.(Photo credit Katie Basile / KYUK)Twenty-five people came out to testify about Gov. Mike Dunleavy’s proposed budget to a full room in Bethel on Saturday. Dunleavy campaigned last year on the promise of a full Permanent Fund Dividend, which would be $3,000. To make that happen, Dunleavy plans to cut $1.6 billion in funding.Susan Taylor is a long-time Bethel resident who testified against Gov. Dunleavy’s proposed budget. She held up a slide from the presentation that two lawmakers overseeing the testimony had handed out to the audience.“Say this happens and we get our $3,000. Even the big families where it’s multiplied out, these cuts are going to cost us more than what this check is,” Taylor said.Rep. Tiffany Zulkosky, a Bethel Democrat who represents most of the Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta in the state House, and Rep. Andrew Josephson, a member of the House Finance Committee, oversaw the testimony on Saturday.Dunleavy’s budget cuts would decimate or erase a lot of services that people in the Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta rely on. One of these is Medicaid expansion. The governor wants to cut $249 million from state matching funds, which would jeopardize federal funds. Walter Jim, the Board Chair of the Yukon-Kuskokwim Health Corporation, which is the largest healthcare provider in the region, spoke out against that cut.“Many patients do not have the money to pay for a plane ticket to Bethel or even a sub-regional clinic,” Jim said.The YKHC board came out against the budget just two days before the hearing. Medicaid funding made up 57 percent of YKHC’s budget last year, according to YKHC CEO Dan Winkleman.People spoke out against the deep cuts to K-12 education, Power Cost Equalization, and the Head Start programs. Gov. Dunleavy would slash $357,958 from Head Start, which would also eliminate federal funding.The region’s biggest school district, the Lower Kuskokwim School District, stands to lose $15 million, or about 17 percent, of its state funding. Dunleavy proposed to cut state reimbursement for school construction bonds. LKSD needs to move a school in Napakiak and build a new one after the village of Newtok moves to its new location.Dunleavy also wants to cut $3 million from the Village Public Safety Officer Program. There are currently only eight VPSOs for 48 villages in the Y-K Delta. That cut compelled the Association of Village Council Presidents to cut out funding for regional VPSOs in its fourth quarter budget for this current fiscal year.Then, there’s state funding for local government. The City of Bethel stands to lose $393,287. That would cut positions and abolish the public library, the Teen Center, and public transit. Mayor Fred Watson wasn’t surprised by Dunleavy’s budget cuts, but he urged lawmakers to look for other revenue sources.“Why haven’t we looked at changes to tax credits, changes to taxes on oil?” Watson said.Other cuts could jeopardize funding for Bethel’s Winter House and the Tundra Women’s Coalition, hurting some of the most vulnerable people in the Y-K Delta, according to Eileen Arnold, executive director of TWC.Public broadcasting also fell under the ax. KYUK board chair Max Angellen came down from Kwethluk to protest Dunleavy’s cuts to public broadcasting.“Our tribal governments and agencies and all others listen to what’s going to happen next, like for this meeting today. We heard it on the radio; that’s why I’m here,” Angellen said.No one in the room testified in favor of Dunleavy’s budget. Several residents made it a point to say that they would gladly take a lower Permanent Fund Dividend if it meant that these programs would stay.last_img read more

Nintendo Is Putting The Kibosh On This RealLife Mario Kart Attraction

first_imgStay on target How AMC’s ‘The Terror’ Uses American History to Delive…33 Killed in Suspected Arson Attack on Kyoto Animation Studio in Japan Mario Kart would be an amazing event in real life. Just think about how fast you could go zipping around little tracks with Mario-themed karts and even “power-ups” to use. It would attract so many people it’d be ridiculous. It seems one company in Tokyo has done its best to provide this kind of experience to tourists.MariCAR Shinagawa has been serving up lookalike Mario Kart cars for anyone who wants to zoom around Tokyo in style. There are even special onesies for tourists to wear to put them in the shoes of their favorite characters while riding around in the karts.Unfortunately, with all the Mario Kart characters and cars available, Nintendo has taken an exception to this service and has stated that the karts are a little too close to the original Mario Kart models for comfort. These rides were being given without the permission of Nintendo, and Nintendo has this operation in its crosshairs now.AdChoices广告via flickr.com/mujitraMariCAR states that they previously spoke to Nintendo as well as their personal legal experts to ensure they were doing nothing that wasn’t above the board. But it seems that Nintendo feels otherwise, as the company wants to make sure there’s a clear demarcation between Mario Kart copycats and its own brands, especially as there seems to be a new Mario Kart attraction coming soon at Nintendo’s theme parks in the future.MariCAR is indeed frustrated by the situation, especially since the attention attracted by the lawsuit Nintendo has filed against them has already caused their website to crash. They also don’t have the money to take on a giant like Nintendo in this type of situation, so it’s likely the business will just shut down.MariCAR is still giving rides for now, but the focus of their brand has been altered slightly, with the company’s website now states:“MariCAR is in no way a reflection of the game ‘Mario Kart’. Therefore, when riding the go-carts none of the following will be allowed. 1. No racing each other on the streets. 2. Do not throw banana peals or any other garbage on to the streets. 3. Do not throw red turtle shells or any other objects to each other. MariCAR is a very exciting once in a life time experience tour you can enjoy in the streets of Japan.” Unfortunately, this story will likely end with the MariCAR service going away, but it was a very cool idea from the Tokyo-based business. Hopefully whatever Nintendo comes up with will be equally awesome to merit getting rid of this service.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img read more

Singapore Tops US for Best Cybersecurity

first_imgJuly 6, 2017 2 min read The U.S. has some of the world’s best cybersecurity infrastructure, second only to Singapore, according to a United Nations survey published on Wednesday.The survey, from the U.N.’s International Telecommunications Union (ITU), ranks countries based on five criteria. Among them are the ability to prosecute hackers, the technical ability to prevent cyber attacks, cooperation with other countries, the strength of the local cybersecurity industry and how well a government’s cybersecurity agency is organized.The U.S. achieved a perfect score for the legal and industry categories, and its technical and organizational scores were both above 90 percent. It didn’t fare as well when it comes to cooperation, however, scoring 73 percent in the ITU’s weighted average. The U.S.’s overall score was 91 percent, placing it ahead of Malaysia (89 percent), and behind first-place Singapore (92 percent).In addition to those three countries, the ITU’s top 10 list includes other developed countries like France, Canada and Australia, but also smaller, less developed nations including Estonia, Mauritius and Georgia. The only Middle Eastern country in the top 10 was Oman, which ranked fourth.The ranking is based on surveys the ITU distributed to its 193 member countries. The agency compiled rankings for the 59 countries that didn’t respond to the survey on research from publicly available sources.The 2017 ranking is the ITU’s second cybersecurity report. It issued the first in 2014, and noted that while countries have made progress in countering cyber attacks since then, hackers are getting better, too. Nearly 1 percent of emails sent in 2016 were malicious attacks, ITU’s Telecommunication Development Director Brahima Sanou wrote in the report.”Governments across the world recognize that digital transformation has the power to further the prosperity and wellbeing of their citizens,” he said. “In supporting this transformation, they also recognize that cyber security must be an integral and indivisible part of technological progress.” Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global This story originally appeared on PCMag Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box.

Basel Switzerland – Reported by Elite Traveler t

first_imgBasel, Switzerland – Reported by Elite Traveler, the Private Jet Lifestyle MagazineIn 2011, Blancpain is pursuing the reinterpretation of its Villeret collection initiated in 2010. The Manufacture du Brassus is offering an exclusive preview of its first Villeret Demi-Fuseau Horaire, a model that serves to adjust the second time zone in half-hour increments. Travellers to countries with half-hour time-zone differences, such as India, will thus be equally punctual while in those particular destinations!Blancpain’s first ever dual time-zone model is extremely user-friendly. A few turns of the crown are enough to perform all adjustments on this watch: date, time zone and reference time. A pusher located on the head of the crown serves to select fast correction or half time- zone adjustment mode. It is worth noting that correcting the reference time automatically modifies that of the second time zone.The smooth and easy handling of this half-time-zone function is the physical expression of the ingenuity displayed by the Manufacture in Le Brassus in developing its Calibre 5254DF. This new 321-part self-winding mechanism is endowed with a 72-hour power reserve. It displays the reference time at 12 o’clock; the half-time-zone and seconds in the centre; the day/night indication for the reference time at 9 o’clock; the date which changes in step with the second time-zone at 6 o’clock; and the Date Change (D) or Time-Zone (F) indication at 4 o’clock. It is a further demonstration of Blancpain’s incredible spirit of innovation and now takes its place in the brand’s movement parade that began in 2006.The Villeret Demi-Fuseau Horaire features a half-hunter case in red gold fitted with a sapphire crystal case-back revealing the finesse of the movement and of the guilloché-work oscillating weight. The subtly engine-turned opaline dial is enhanced by red gold hour- markers, and the watch is fitted with an alvazel-lined leather strap.www.blancpain.tvlast_img read more

Army sergeant remanded in connection with 2006 cold case

first_imgA 47-year-old National Guard master sergeant was remanded in custody for eight days on Thursday after his DNA was matched to explosives found during a drug bust in Limassol in 2006.The sergeant also faces separate charges in connection with illegal arms found at his barracks earlier this month, which authorities also linked to him through DNA.On Thursday, police told the court that the suspect was not cooperating, telling investigators that whatever he has to say he will say it in court.He also refused to provide a blood sample.His defence objected to him being remanded in custody, arguing that he had never been named by the two suspects police arrested back in 2006.The sergeant was arrested on Wednesday, shortly after he was released by a court-martial where he was charged the previous day in connection with illegal arms found at his barracks earlier this month. His trial starts on October 9.The 47-year-old from Limassol, faces charges of illegal possession of a revolver, a hand-grenade and other items, as well as theft.The weapons were found on August 1 while repairs were being carried out to the ceiling of the showers at the barracks in the Larnaca area.Workers found a revolver, a hand grenade, explosives, a hood and smoke grenades wrapped in waterproof material.The items underwent forensic tests, including collection of genetic material, which was later matched to the suspect.The non-commissioned officer was re-arrested after authorities matched his DNA with genetic material lifted from explosives found in a flat in Yermasoyia during a drug raid on March 18, 2006.Police at the time arrested two men, aged 31 and 50, for possession and trafficking of 1.2 kilos of cocaine and 6.5 kilos of cannabis.They also seized two pieces of TNT explosive weighing one pound, two detonators, and two pieces of detonation cord.Forensics found genetic material on the two pieces of TNT and one of the cords, which they matched to the sergeant 12 years later.The two traffickers were convicted to 12 years in jail early in 2007.You May LikeHaveTip9 Things Done by a Man When He no Longer Loves YouHaveTipUndoNewsxoxo7 Natural Remedies for Constipation You Should Try!NewsxoxoUndocarinsurance.netDid You Get a Discount on Car Insurance This Year?carinsurance.netUndo State Legal Service condemns attack on attorney-generalUndoData is the new oil so watch out for mass mining – Netflix filmUndoIran’s Revolutionary Guards publish purported exchange with British warshipUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
