#Nintendo #NESClassic – Nintendo NES Classic: How To Buy It Online? Future Company Plans Unveiled : The Nintendo NES Classic Edition has, yet again, gone out-of-stock. Retailers like Target and Toys R Us have sold out all the NES Classic that came by for the Holiday season sale. However, it has been reported that fans can still get their hands on the NES Classic with its last stock at Tesco.

Buying NES online

Right now, the only option for fans to be able to buy the Nintendo NES Classic Mini is through online retailers like Amazon and eBay. But, it is indeed unfortunate that the NES Classic has not reached on time before the end of the Christmas season, as per the report.

CEX Stocks up NES Mini Classic

According to reports, it seems like CEX has stocked up again with the NES Classic Edition consoles. Players can check the stock’s availability from the stock checker on their official website or in the NowinStock website. NowinStock is programmed to update if any new stock has arrived in big retailer stores.

Nintendo game to have animated series?

According to reports, one popular title from the NES is going to have its very own animated series. Fred Seibert of the Federation Studios animation has confirmed that they are currently working on an unnamed project which is heavily based on one of the most popular video games that have dominated the market in the last 30 years.

It has been the main reason why they had not gotten it started for about twelve years despite the fact that they had it in their shop. He also added that there will become great characters and storylines that will eventually get it to get going.

Nintendo to use an IP that Everyone Knows

Nintendo’s President Tatsumi Kimishima already confirmed last May 2016 that Nintendo will be using a popular IP that everyone already knows. However, he also made it clear that it will not be Super Mario, but something that most fans know very well.

How to watch Cubs vs. Indians Game 4 online on World Series live stream

#CHICAGOCUBS #GameOnline – How to watch Cubs vs. Indians Game 4 online on World Series live stream : Once again, the Indians have the lead. After two semi-blowouts in Games 1 and 2, both teams were stifled last night as only a single Indians run scored. Now, with momentum swinging in Cleveland’s favor, the Cubs have to find a way to win at Wrigley on Saturday night. Game 4 begins at 8:08PM ET on Fox.

MUST SEE: Scientists have developed formal guidelines on ethics robot

If you missed the game last night, you missed a stressful, spectacular pitching duel. Although both offenses attempted to rally throughout the night, only an RBI single from Coco Crisp would result in any scoring. The Cubs had men on second and third in the bottom of the ninth, but a strikeout would snuff out any hopes of a comeback, putting the Indians up 2-1 in the World Series.

In Game 4, Indians starter Corey Kluber (18-9) and Cubs starter John Lackey (11-8) will face off, with Kluber looking to bring his club to within a game of taking the World Series and Lackey looking to tie the series up again and force Game 6.

This is already Kluber’s second start of the series, but it will be the first time Lackey has taken the mound in ten days. Can Kluber replicate his success from Game 1? Can Lackey help lead the Cubs to their first win at home?

If you want to watch Game 4 online, you have two options. First, you can head to Fox Sports Go in your browser or download the app on your tablet or smartphone. Remember, you’ll need a cable subscription in order to log in. Alternatively, you can buy the Postseason Package from MLB.TV, but you still have to subscribe to a pay TV provider if you want to access the stream.

Windows 10 is under attack and Microsoft users must do this right now

#Windows10 #Microsoft – Windows 10 is under attack and Microsoft users must do this right now : If you use Windows 10 you should update your PC right now. Microsoft has just released some important security patches after finding around 50 vulnerabilities within its Windows 10 operating system.

The important software update fixes five critical flaws in Windows 10 including problems with Internet Explorer, Windows 10 default web browser, Microsoft Edge and Office.

According to Microsoft, previous versions of the software contained four zero-day flaws – so-called because the critical bugs have never knowingly been exploited by hackers in the wild. None of these flaws have been publicly disclosed until now.

One flaw that was found in Internet Explorer could allow a hacker to take control of an affected system. This attack could then be used to install programs – view, change, or delete data – or create new accounts with full administrator rights.

Microsoft’s latest Edge browser also had a dangerous zero-day flaw, called CVE-2016-7189. This would allow an attacker to remotely execute code on the victim’s machine, but again, the criminal would need to convince a user to visit a malicious website.

An attacker who successfully exploited the vulnerabilities could gain the same user rights as owner of the computer, Microsoft warned in its official blog.

The fixes for these zero-day flaws are currently available via the Windows Update app. Microsoft has also issued an update aimed at improving security and reliability issues for Windows 7, 8.1, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2012 and Server 2012 R2.

The news comes as Microsoft is due to release a range of new Windows 10 powered devices. Microsoft has already sent-out invites to a media event on October 26th, where the US technology firm is expected to debut new Surface hardware, including an all-in-one desktop computer and potential refreshes to the Surface Book and Surface Pro line-up.

Windows 10 Privacy Boosting Tips: Four Settings To Turn Off For Maximum Privacy

#Windows10 #Microsoft – Windows 10 Privacy Boosting Tips: Four Settings To Turn Off For Maximum Privacy : Windows 10 Privacy Boosting Tips: Four Settings To Turn Off For Maximum Privacy : Windows 10 runs on more than 400 million hardware units; however, Microsoft did include many features that are forcing users to share their data with the company, so we listed a number of tips to reverse that.

No More Privy Cortana

The virtual personal assistant improves its AI capabilities by storing and analyzing what you say, write and type. This means that Cortana gets full access to your contacts, location, browsing history and calendar.

Users can put a damper on Cortana’s data gathering, but will trade off voice dictation when addressing the assistant.

To stop this from happening, go to Settings – Speech, Inking, & Typing – Getting to Know You tab. Once there, click on Stop Getting To Know Me. This switches off dictation and purges any information that was collected on your device.

Disable Your Location

Mobile devices have the habit to allow third-party apps to find your location. While navigating the streets of a new city, that is reasonable, but at other times, you might want to disable the feature.

As long as your location detection is on, Windows 10 holds on the device’s location history for a good 24 hours. A good alternative is to define a location manually, so apps are happy and you retain more privacy.

To turn off the location, go to Settings, and find Location. Navigate to Location for this device is on – Change to switch it off for all users of your device. While you are here, you might want to dissolve your Location History, and can select which apps to detect your location and which you want to be under the radar from.

A fast way to enable/disable your location is by tapping into the Action center. Play with the Location switch to rapidly chance between on and off.

Zero Syncing

Users who sign in with a Microsoft account get their settings and credentials synced between devices, alongside the notifications which get the same treatment.

Disabling the sync feature means that each device will maintain their own settings and passwords, even when users log in with a Microsoft account. This implies that passwords will have to be inputted manually.

Lock Screen On

The lock screen could holster a myriad of data that you want to keep private. By going into Settings – System – Notifications & Actions you can tick off the Show notifications on the lock screen, thus having no notification appear on the lock screen.

Earlier this year, Microsoft was in hot water in France when it was revealed that Windows 10 is collecting user data sans users’ permission. France’s Chair of the National Data Protection Commission (CNIL) gave Microsoft three months to update its OS so that Windows 10 users’ privacy is better protected.

“We will work closely with the CNIL over the next few months to understand the agency’s concerns fully,” says David Heiner, VP and deputy general counsel at Microsoft. Source : techtimes

Fix for public Wi-Fi network connection issues

After you connect to a Wi-Fi hotspot, open your browser to check if you need to add something else. Some hotspots require signing in or agreeing to terms of use. Wait for a while and try connecting to the Wi-Fi hotspot again. Some hotspots limit the use to a certain a number of devices that can be connected at one time. Source: ibtimes

Here’s how selfies will keep you safe when hailing an Uber

#Uber #App – Here’s how selfies will keep you safe when hailing an Uber : Uber now requires that drivers periodically take a selfie that will then be compared to an image on file. The selfie requirement is part of Uber’s Real-Time ID Check that utilizes Microsoft Cognitive Services to ensure riders know exactly who their driver is.

Before going online and sporadically in between their work hours, Uber drivers will be asked to take a selfie. Verification, Uber claims, only takes a few seconds. If the image doesn’t match the one on file, the Uber driver’s account will be temporarily blocked.

The selfie program was first instituted in China earlier this year, with select cities in the US, which include New York, Atlanta, Miami, and Los Angeles, requiring drivers to use the technology. But the safety feature will now be expanded to the entire nation.

Joe Sullivan, Uber’s security chief, claims that more than 99 percent of drivers were verified during the company’s testing period over the past few months in a blog post on the company’s website. Microsoft Cognitive Services is in charge of doing the comparisons, with Uber stepping in if the images don’t match one another.

According to a report by The Washington Post, Sullivan stated the technology did have some issues during the pilot stage, where the software would require drivers to take a selfie while the vehicle was in motion and to reduce “false-positive deactivations” for drivers with glasses.

Some Uber drivers are sure to grumble with the new measure to post a selfie every couple of hours, but riders will definitely appreciate the safety feature that will reduce the risk of getting into a vehicle with the wrong person.

Earlier this year, Uber rolled out various safety features including using GPS and smartphone technology that detects dangerous driving behavior, sends daily driving reports to drivers, offers driver reminders, and more.

It’s likely that Uber will continue to roll out new and improved safety features… at least until the company manages to replace human drivers once and for all. Source: autoblog

How to Use the iPhone 7 Plus Zoom

#iPhone7Plus #iOS – How to Use the iPhone 7 Plus Zoom : Learn how to use the iPhone 7 Plus camera zoom in 30 seconds, and why shouldn’t zoom in too much when you take a photo with your new iPhone.

The iPhone 7 Plus is the first iPhone with two cameras on the back and the first iPhone with optical zoom. This allows you to zoom in on an object like a kid, a pet or a game without degrading the quality of the photo.

Technically the iPhone 7 Plus zoom is just switching to the lens that is already zoomed in more, but the effect is still the same – you are closer to your subject. Here’s how to use the iPhone 7 Plus zoom to get closer to your subject.

Open the iPhone 7 Plus camera app either by tapping on the camera app on your home screen or swiping in from the right on the lock screen. Once you are in the camera app look for the 1X on screen button. It’s in the middle of the bottom edge in portrait or in the middle of the right side of the screen in landscape.

Tap on the 1X on screen button to quickly jump to a 2X zoom. This is an optical zoom and does not change the quality of your photo. It’s the same as getting twice as close using your iPhone 7. Tap again to zoom back out to 1X.

The iPhone 7 Plus zoom uses the two cameras on the back of the new iPhone.

The iPhone 7 Plus zoom uses the two cameras on the back of the new iPhone.

You can also tap and hold on 1X or 2X and then slide your finger to the left to zoom in and to the right to zoom out. You can zoom in up to 10X, but anything past 2X is a digital zoom or software zoom.

The iPhone 7 Plus zoom also allows you to pinch to zoom, just like on the iPhone 7 and older iPhones. This is the same as cropping an image so you end up with lower overall quality for your photo.

It’s always better to get closer to the subject than to use the software zoom, but sometimes you cannot get any closer. In that case the software zoom is handy.

Above you’ll see a similar photo shot at 1X, 2X and 10X zoom on the iPhone 7 Plus. Notice that the photo quality is the same in the first two photos, but changes with the last photo. Source: gottabemobile

13 Snapchat tips and tricks to turn you into a messaging master, from filters to friend finding

#Snapchat #Tips – 13 Snapchat tips and tricks to turn you into a messaging master, from filters to friend finding : Snapchat is now well beyond its original 14-year-old audience of early adopters. It’s fun, and way more spicy than a plain old Facebook update or WhatsApp message. It’s the new social giant in town… and it’s bloody confusing.

If you want to get up to speed in the next 3 minutes and 15 seconds, soak up our 13 top Snapchat tips and tricks. And maybe even a few of you who have been using Snapchat for a year may still learn something new. Heck, you could even become a Snapchat winner like this student who used it to land his dream job.

1. How to make a video your friends can see more than once

The whole point of Snapchat is that it lets you send videos that can only be seen once, right? Well, not quite. If you’re a bit too proud of your latest creation, there’s another option. You can turn it into a Story, which can be seen as many times as you like for 24 hours.

These stories are like little strings of Snapchat bits, not unlike a sort of holiday photo album. They can be pictures or video clips (to take video you simply hold down on the shutter button rather than tapping, by the way), and you add one to a Story by pressing the little icon at the bottom of the screen that looks like a box with a ‘plus’ icons in the top-right corner. In the View My Story part of Settings you can also customise who gets to see these Story posts.

2. Using those amazing face-changing filters

The best part of Snapchat has to be the face-fiddling filters that make you vomit rainbows and mutate your face into something a hall of mirrors can’t touch. Yep, we’re 9 years old, deal with it.

It’s not immediately obvious how to actually use these “Lenses”, since Snapchat is apparently too cool for things like traditional menus. To open up the Lenses toy box, just hold a finger down on a face in the scene, most likely when using the selfie camera. You’ll see the available effects appear down at the bottom. Now start the rainbow-vomiting.
