Zuckerberg for President?

The rumor floating around for a while has been that Mark Zuckerberg (Facebook) wants to run for president. Silly rumor right? Well the rumors keep going thanks to Mark hiring one of Hilary Clinton's pollsters which only get the rumor going even more. The official reasoning behind the hiring is to help them with research for their nonprofit but I think it's safe to say the rumor probably isn't going anywhere as Zuckerberg is touring the country as part of his "Year of Travel". The Hill takes a closer look at the Zuckerberg for President rumors.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg hired Hillary Clinton’s former pollster as the tech mogul denies he’s running for president.

Joel Benenson, the chief strategist in Clinton’s 2016 campaign, is conducting research for Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan’s nonprofit, the Zuckerberg-Chan initiative, Politico reported Wednesday.

While Benenson’s work, done through his company Benenson Strategy Group, will focus on the couple’s philanthropy, it gives Zuckerberg access to a top pollster as rumors emerge of a potential presidential run.

Hollywood's Favorite Video-Editing App Has a Free Version

I am a fan of Adobe photo and video editing tools, but a free tool from Avid is worth looking at. In fact, Hollywood uses Avid Media Composer a lot and the free version is call Media Composer First. It has almost all of the main editing features of the paid version, but your output is limited to 1080p and the number of streams is limited as well. For basic home and YouTuber use, it's probably more than enough. Either way, you can try it out free, and if you don't like it, you can have your money back!

The new free version, Media Composer First, mirrors Avid's expensive software in most ways that count. "We've been showing Media Composer First to Hollywood film and TV editors, and they all asked the same question: 'What isn't in Media Composer First? This works just like my Media Composer,'" Avid's Matt Feury told No Film School.

SNES Classic Pre-Orders Coming This Month

Nintendo has just put out an official notice and timeframe on when the SNES will be available for pre-order. The console itself will go on sale officially on September 29, 2017. However, if it's anything like the NES pre-order situation, you'll want to get your name on the list as soon as possible. Later in the month of August, they will be available for pre-order. Keep your eyes open for more as I'm sure the pre-orders will even sell out very fast. 

Nintendo is also pledging that “a significant amount of additional systems will be shipped to stores for launch day, and throughout the balance of the calendar year.” How many does “significant” actually mean? Who knows. Nintendo has suggested that the nostalgic mini-console will be easier to purchase than the NES Classic, but there are really no guarantees.

You Can Now Install Windows 10 S

Microsoft announced back in May that Windows 10 S was coming. It is now available and ready for everyone. You can "upgrade" to this limited version of Windows from Windows 10 Pro, Pro Education, Education or Enterprise. If you are running one of these wonderful versions, you can limit yourself to a poor experience and Windows Store Apps only by upgrading downgrading to Windows 10 S. I'm not sure why anyone would do that - except for testing purposes. Either way, this was previously availalble for MSDN subscribers only, and is now available for all.

At an event in May that was focused on the educational market, Microsoft announced Windows 10 S, a version of the operating system that can only run apps from the Windows Store. While the Surface Laptop was the first device to launch with the OS, and some new education-specific PCs were announced today, the firm didn't actually release any images of Windows 10 S until last week when ISOs were made available to MSDN subscribers.

Titanfall 2 Coming to Access

Titanfall 2 seemed to land on consoles and PC to mixed reviews. If you don't feel like dropped $40 to $50 for an average title, you can now play this on your console or PC through either EA Access or Origin Access. If you haven't played it yet, you should give it a go. Even if you aren't a subscriber, it may be worth a month or two worth of subscription to play through.

 

Xbox One X Already Has 80 Confirmed Games for Enhanced

The Xbox One X was revealed at E3 earlier this year and there will be a bunch of new games released for the enhanced console. They will of course run at 4K and have higher texture packs to showcase the powerful console. The question originally was raised regarding the number of titles available for the Xbox One X. At this moment it appears that there will be 80 games available at launch. That's a good number and it appears that there could be more within a few weeks of launch. This could be a very good launch for Microsoft.

The Xbox One X has over 80 that are already optimized for this system. There’s a full list of these games on this NeoGAF thread. Existing games like Forza Horizon 3, Final Fantasy 15, Gears of War 4 and Halo 5 already have been optimized by their developers for the One X, with the latter three HDR support and full 4K resolutions. Some other major releases that have already been made Xbox One X enhanced are Resident Evil 7, The Witcher 3, Injustice 2 and Fallout 4.

Samsung Shows off Features of Note 8's Dual-Camera

Some thought that Samsung wouldn't release the Galaxy Note 8 due to the troubles with the Note 7. They have pulled up their britches and gone ahead with the Note 8 and have added some nifty features and a dual-camera. Their dual-camera is more than just a 3x zoom though and they have just shown off some of the nifty tricks that you'll be able to do with their latest device. I really, REALLY hope that there are no major issues with this Note - or the Note line will be dead for good.

It's no secret that the Galaxy Note 8 will likely include dual rear cameras given all the leaks, but you don't have to take the rumor mill's word for it -- Samsung appears to have dropped a not-so-subtle hint of its own. The company's electromechanical division has posted a feature list for a dual camera module that lines up eerily well what's expected from the Note 8's rear sensors. To begin with, the second camera allows for 3X optical zoom, or a notch better than the 2X you see in the iPhone 7 Plus and OnePlus 5.

Google Puts Native Ad Blocker in Canary and Dev Chrome Builds

Google has decided to put a native Ad-Blocker in their latest build of Chrome browser. They still offer the ability to install ad-blocking extensions, but once their version hits the mainstream channels, I'm sure that they will make it harder and more clunky to use third-party applications. I get ad-blocking from sure, but as a content producer, it bugs me on a certain level. As such, I don't use ad-blockers myself, but certainly don't blame people who do. Google's big drive here is that their blocker will block non-Google ads, but allow their ads to pass through.

It may seem strange that Google is introducing an ad blocker to its browser, given that its core business is in online advertising. It actually makes a lot of sense, as the ads that will be blocked will be the intrusive ones that have nothing to do with Google. The standards will be agreed upon by members of the Coalition for Better Ads, including Google. By blocking the offending ads, the company hopes to dissuade users from installing third party blocking software that does impact its business.
