Xbox Game Pass Subscription Service Launching Next Month

Adnan Farooqui May 24, 2017

Microsoft announced in February this year that it was going to launch a subscription service for the Xbox One. The service is called Xbox Game Pass and it will provide access to more than 100 games for the Xbox One and Xbox 360 to those who decide to pay $9.99 per month for the service. Microsoft has now confirmed that Xbox Game Pass is going to be launched in June.

Xbox Game Pass is different from Sony’s PlayStation Now game streaming service. Subscribers will actually be able to download the titles that are offered as part of their monthly subscription. They will even be able to buy some of the titles at a discount by virtue of their subscription.

The service’s library includes some great titles initially, including the likes of Halo 5 and Gears of War 3. Microsoft promises that it will continue to expand the Xbox Game Pass library in the months to come.

“Each month, Xbox Game Pass will add a new set of games to the catalog so there is always something new to play across a diversity of experiences, genres, ratings, and more,” it promises.

There’s good news for Xbox Live Gold subscribers. They can get early access to Xbox Game Pass starting today. Microsoft is going to launch Xbox Game Pass for all Xbox owners in June.

LG V10 Android Nougat Update Released

Adnan Farooqui May 24, 2017


Google released the Android 7.0 Nougat update late last year and it still hasn’t arrived on quite a few compatible handsets. That’s what fragmentation gets you on the Android platform. Nevertheless, LG V10 owners have something to look forward to now with regards to a software update. LG has finally started rolling out the Android 7.0 Nougat update for the LG V10.

The only caveat here is that this update is being rolled out in LG’s home market of South Korea at this point in time. However, since it’s out there, it’s only a matter of time before LG releases it in other markets across the globe.

Those who own carrier-locked versions of the LG V10 will have to wait even more as carriers tend to hold up updates for a few weeks. They do that to make their own little changes, add bloatware, and conduct tests on the firmware before they roll it out to users on their network.

Software version v30d is now being rolled out for the LG V10 in South Korea. The hefty update brings Android 7.0 Nougat and LG UX 5.0+. It’s out now for F600L, F600K, and F600S carrier variants in South Korea and can be downloaded from LG Bridge PC software.

Official Game Of Thrones Season 7 Trailer Released

Adnan Farooqui May 24, 2017

Game of Thrones fans have been waiting for a very long time and they will be rewarded soon. HBO is going to release Game of Thrones season 7 in July this year. It has previously released teasers online which didn’t really provide a glimpse of what to expect from the new season. The cable giant has released the official Game of Thrones season 7 trailer today, giving fans a preview of what to expect from one of its biggest shows ever.

The new official Game of Thrones season 7 trailer features actual footage from the upcoming season, so it will no doubt excite ardent fans of the series, and there are millions of them across the globe.

The trailer shows that there’s going to plenty of action in the upcoming season, with Cersei Lannister declaring that the Lannisters have “enemies to the East, enemies to the West, enemies to the South, [and] enemies to the North — whatever stands in our way, we will defeat it.”

The previous season left a lot of questions unanswered about the fate of our favorite characters. What will happen to Cersei now that she has cemented her grip on the Iron Throne? What will be Jon Snow’s next move now that his stock as the King in the North is rising? and when Daenerys Targaryen will attack Kings Landing with her army.

All this and more will be revealed in the upcoming season. Game of Thrones season 7 premieres on HBO come July 16th.

LeEco Lays Off 70% Of Its Workforce In The United States

Adnan Farooqui May 23, 2017


LeEco had big ambitions for its business in the United States when it launched its products in the country with much pomp and circumstance. The reality has been different, though. The company has been facing financial issues which even caused it to abandon its proposed acquisition of Vizio. The company has now confirmed that it’s laying off most of its workforce in the United States.

China-based LeEco has said that it’s laying off a majority of its workforce in the United States. Around 325 employees will be let go, they account for 70% of LeEco’s entire workforce in the country.

LeEco says that a lack of funding is the reason why these positions are being terminated. LeEco says that will continue operations in the United States but will now focus its energies on the niche market of Chinese-speaking households.

LeEco also gained popularity in the United States due to its financing of electric car company Faraday Future. The company unveiled its FF 91 all-electric car at the Consumer Electronics Show 2017.

Faraday Future says that this development is not going to impact its daily operations. It tells The Verge that the company is moving ahead with the development of the FF 91 and its manufacturing plans in North Las Vegas.

No layoffs have been planned for Faraday Future employees at this point in time and the company is working on securing new rounds of funding.

Verizon To Launch Over-The-Top Streaming Service

Adnan Farooqui May 23, 2017


Verizon has confirmed that it’s going to launch a new over-the-top content streaming service after it completes the acquisition of Yahoo’s internet business. The deal has been through rough waters and at one point it seemed that perhaps Verizon may not go through with it. The acquisition is likely to be closed next month and once that happens, Verizon will launch its OTT service.

Verizon chairman and CEO Lowell McAdam. has confirmed that the company is going to use a combination of Yahoo and AOL, touting a combined user base of 1.3 billion people, “to test out an over-the-top service.”

He didn’t reveal any further details about this content streaming service but it will presumably be launched alongside Verizon’s existing Go90 ad-supported mobile video service.

Reports suggest that Verizon has been thinking about launching a skinny TV bundle offering of its own which would be similar to other online TV streaming services like AT&T’s DirecTV Now and Dish’s Sling TV.

We can expect more information about this service to come up in the weeks after the acquisition of Yahoo’s internet business is officially completed by Verizon. It will be interesting to see just how Verizon is planning to shake up the online content streaming industry.

Zack Snyder To Step Down From Justice League Film

Tyler Lee May 23, 2017

We’re sure that many moviegoers and comic book fans are eager to see how DC’s Justice League movie will hold against the competition that is Marvel’s The Avengers. So far DC’s standalone movies haven’t exactly been well-received, although early reviews of Wonder Woman are off to a good start.

That being said, there is some rather unfortunate news as it has been announced that Zack Snyder will be stepping down from his role with the Justice League movie. It seems that this decision came about following Snyder’s daughter, Autumn Snyder, suicide in March earlier this year where she was 20.

So far her death has been kept private and the movie was actually put on hold for two weeks while the family dealt with it. However it seems that the family needs more time to deal with this, hence the decision to step away. According to Snyder, “In my mind, I thought it was a cathartic thing to go back to work, to just bury myself and see if that was the way through it.”

“The demands of this job are pretty intense. It is all-consuming. And in the last two months, I’ve come to the realization … I’ve decided to take a step back from the movie to be with my family, be with my kids, who really need me. They are all having a hard time. I’m having a hard time.” Taking his place will be Joss Whedon, although Warner Bros. Pictures president Toby Emmerich has stated that Whedon’s will be minimal, and that this was for additional scenes and will not change the direction of the movie.

According to Emmerich, “The directing is minimal and it has to adhere to the style and tone and the template that Zack set, We’re not introducing any new characters. It’s the same characters in some new scenes. He’s handing the baton to Joss, but the course has really been set by Zack. I still believe that despite this tragedy, we’ll still end up with a great movie.” Justice League has been set for a release on the 17th of November, 2017.

Google’s AlphaGo Beats The World’s Number One Go Player

Tyler Lee May 23, 2017

If it isn’t scary enough that robots could soon be taking over our jobs, it seems that computers are now smart enough to beat some of the best humans at their own game. In this case, it looks like Google’s AlphaGo AI has managed to beat the world’s number one Go player, Ke Jie, further cementing just how smart it is.

For those unfamiliar, AlphaGo is based off on Google’s DeepMind AI in which it was created to test its skills against real-life Go players. Back in 2016 it managed to win against legendary Korean champion Lee Se-dol, and while Lee did manage to win one round, AlphaGo ultimately trounced the player.

AlphaGo’s match against Ke Jie was announced last month where the 19-year old Chinese player was considered by many to be the best in the world and ranked number 1 worldwide. What was interesting in this match is that Ke Jie was found to have learnt from AlphaGo’s more unorthodox moves and tried to use it against the AI.

Ultimately AlphaGo won, although it seemed like a pretty close match as the AI won by just half a point. According to DeepMind CEO and co-founder Demis Hassabis, “I think it was a really wonderful game. Huge respect to Ke Jie for playing such a great game and pushing AlphaGo to its limits.” Note that this match is just the first and that the second will be played this Thursday, with the finale taking place on Saturday (both days are based on China time).

Nokia And Apple’s Patent Dispute Comes To An End

Tyler Lee May 23, 2017

Towards the end of 2016, Nokia filed a patent infringement lawsuit against Apple in which they claimed that Apple had infringed upon 32 patents that belonged to them. However it looks like whatever beef either company had with each other is gone because the dispute has come to an end with a new licensing agreement.

It should be noted that Nokia’s patent licensing agreement with Apple was previously said to be good until the end of 2016, so we guess it makes sense that they are renewing it now. According to Maria Varsellona, Chief Legal Officer at Nokia, “This is a meaningful agreement between Nokia and Apple. It moves our relationship with Apple from being adversaries in court to business partners working for the benefit of our customers.”

With this new agreement, it is said that Nokia will be providing “certain network infrastructure products and services” to Apple, while Apple has agreed to return health products owned by Nokia to Apple’s retail and online store, which in case you didn’t know are Withings-branded products which Apple promptly removed following Nokia’s lawsuit.

Unsurprisingly the figures involved in the new licensing agreement were not disclosed, but Apple is expected to pay Nokia an upfront cash payment along with additional revenues from the future stemming from the new agreement.

Samsung Unveils New Stretchable OLED Displays

Tyler Lee May 23, 2017

For the longest time ever, displays were typically seen as rigid sort of devices where they were pretty much fixed and were unmovable. For the most part this is true since trying to bend your TV, monitors, or phone will result in it cracking. However we’ve known that Samsung and LG have been working on displays that can flex, but Samsung is taking it one step further.

The company has recently announced (via Engadget) what could be the world’s first stretchable OLED display. Yes, instead of merely being able to bend or fold, this display can stretch (to a certain extent) which means that damaging it will be harder than traditional displays, since the stretchiness means slightly more give when getting knocked around.

The prototype that was unveiled by the company came in the form of a 9.1-inch display that can be bent, rolled, and survive dents of up to half an inch deep before reverting back to its final form. We’re not sure what such technology could be used for, but given that it sounds like it will be highly adaptable, it could be used for all kinds of things such as for cars, home appliances, computers, TV, phones, wearables, and so on.

Unfortunately the technology behind these displays is still relatively young, which means that it will be a while before we see it commercialized. In the meantime phones with flexible displays have yet to become mainstream, but rumor has it that Samsung is planning to launch such devices later this year.

YouTube TV Can Stream To Apple TV With AirPlay Support

Tyler Lee May 22, 2017

If you wanted to watch YouTube TV on your Apple TV, for some strange reason YouTube has yet to create a dedicated app for the service yet. However the good news is that while a native app for the Apple TV has yet to be launched, YouTube has made some changes to its iOS app that should help make things a bit more convenient.

If users were to update to the latest YouTube TV app, they will be pleased to learn that the update will bring about support for AirPlay. What this means is that users will now be able to beam YouTube TV from their iOS device to the Apple TV and enjoy it on the big screen. We know that this seems like a convoluted solution that an Apple TV app would solve in an instant, but we guess that’s just the way that users have to go about it for now.

Note that there are other ways to watch YouTube TV on your television, such as with the Google Chromecast, but if you do not own a Chromecast device then we guess this method will have to suffice for now. We should also remind users that a YouTube TV app for set-top boxes is still MIA but given that the service is only a few weeks old, we guess that YouTube will eventually get around to it. In the meantime users can update the iOS YouTube TV app via the iTunes App Store.
