Awesome Video of the Day

This video has nothing much to do with tech (other than the GoPro), but it is still amazingly awesome. Enjoy!

 

Amazon Echo Listens to Everything You Say

Amazon has quietly released their latest piece of hardware for your home - the Echo. This is a stand-alone 'Siri' that is always on, always connected and always ready to help you with any information you're searching for - not only that, it's also a Bluetooth Speaker. This has "far-field" voice recognition - meaning that is can listen to you no matter where you are in your home. Creepy? I think so. The big bonus is that if you're a Prime member, you get spied on for $100 less than the average consumer. Good deal!

Tucked under Echo's light ring is an array of seven microphones. These sensors use beam-forming technology to hear you from any direction. With enhanced noise cancellation, Echo can hear you ask a question even while it's playing music.

Unlimited OneDrive Storage Now Rolling Out

If you were (im)patiently waiting for your "unlimited" OneDrive storage to show up, it should be rolling out now. Of course, this massive storage space is only available for those that subscribe to Microsoft's Office 365. Nothing is free, but if you were on the fence, this could be the clincher. The value of the unlimited storage is fantastic and is worth the price of the subscription alone - and you get a working Office program as well. I think it's a great idea personally, and this may just push me over the edge to subscribe to Office 365.

If you have a subscription to the Office 365 service, you should be receiving an email very soon-- if you have not already-- informing that you now have additional storage. We say additional storage because it looks like Microsoft is bumping all accounts up to 10TB at first as they rollout the additional storage.

Ridley Scott's Halo TV Show - Not So Good

According to people have seen the entire pilot for the Halo TV series (available to Xbox owners only), it's not so good and will likely only last for a season. After watching the trailer, I was a little excited, but they do make some good points about trying to make a TV-series out of a game that has a cult-like following. 1) It needs to be amazing. 2) It MUST follow the game dynamic. If you want your dreams dashed, take a look at the link below for more real opinions.

When Halo Nightfall was announced with Ridley Scott attached, instant giddiness ensued. It was going to happen this time. Someone as talented as Ridley Scott was bound to get this universe right. After watching the premiere episode, I couldn’t have been more wrong. Halo Nightfall tries to briefly introduce the audience into this world (via text) and then immediately turns into a generic sci-fi show with some of the worst CGI I’ve seen in recent years. It doesn’t feel grand or epic or ancient.

Eee Brand Returns with $199 X205 Windows Laptop

ASUS has resurrected the Eee brand as they just launched their new EeeBook X205 Windows 8.1 laptop. This is direct competition to the $199 HP laptop that also boasts similar specs. The beatiful thing about the EeeBook is that it has Bluetooth 4.0 2GB of RAM, 64GB of storage and a microHDMI port. The downside is that the resolution of the 11-inch screen is the crappy 1366x768. I really do wish that companies would give a minimum resolution of 1600x900 at least.

As Liliputing reports, the ASUS EeeBook X205 is now on sale at Amazon in dark blue, with availability at other retailers, and in other colors, coming soon. The tablet features full Windows 8.1, and while it's not likely to offer much in the way of performance, at this price, it could well be an ideal choice for a second PC to use for occasional web browsing, or updating Facebook on the couch.

Microsoft Office for Tablet Now "Freemium"

Microsoft has been giving away their Office software for mobile for a while now and while the platforms tended to be limited to iOS and Windows RT, it looks like it will now extend to the Android world. Although the applications and service will be free, in order to get a "full experience", you'll need to be an Office 365 subscriber. You can even sign up if you want to participate in the Android test.

There are also new features in the Office apps. Dropbox support has been added throughout, in line with the recently announced partnership between Dropbox and Microsoft. Chart customization is also available in all the apps, as a premium feature. PowerPoint gets the ability to add and edit animations, and zoom support in presenter view.

Apple Malware now on iOS

Apple has erroneously been touted as "not able to get viruses" for many years, but now Apple themselves are pointing out that Malware has hit their mobile devices - as well as they Macbook. Trojans have been delivered via Apps for quite a while and now malware, Trojans and more can be delivered to your device (and propagated), simply by plugging into an affected device. This spreads as you plug in to other devices. Keep your USB stick to yourself and your USB ports closed.

What's more, it's the first that can infect iOS applications like a traditional virus, and even auto-generates infected software. Some 467 apps have been infected and downloaded over 350,000 times, and could have affected "hundreds of thousands" of users. And here's where the regional issue comes into play: the malware is hosted on Maiyadi, a Chinese, third-party app store.

Rage Keyboard

If you are one of those guys (or gals) that sometimes rages when you're at your computer, this keyboard is probably the best thing you've ever seen. It's a full-on bunching bag gym that will require you to get up, move around and punch different bags as each bag is its own "key". It would take a lot of effort to write a review - or news, but it would be a little fun.

A majority of our entertainment comes from computers, but a majority of our frustration comes from them as well — whether it’s from a tedious day of writing reports, an inexplicably broken internet connection, or getting targeted and griefed in an online game. Gone are the days of throwing a sturdy Nintendo controller against a wall to relieve our frustrations with no repercussions, but design studio bless has designed a solution: a keyboard made out of punching bags.

Amazon Cloud Drive Unlimited Photo Storage for Prime

Everyone wants your data - namely your pictures. Amazon has now joined the fray with their new "unlimited photo storage" for their Amazon Prime users. This isn't the reason why you should rush out and grab a Prime membership, but if you're already a member, this is a nice touch that gives more value to your plan. Cloud Drive is pretty affordable at the lower tier, but when it comes to 1000GB of storage, Googe's own Drive is much, much more affordable.

Prime now includes free storage in Amazon Cloud Drive for your entire photo collection. Enjoy secure photo storage, automatic photo and video backup, and anywhere access with Cloud Drive.

Windows 10 Natively Supports MKV

If you don't know that "Native MKV" support is, then you obviously haven't tried pirating videos off the internet. While the MKV fiel format is much more than just for pirating, it has always required certain players in order to play back this format. Thankfully, Windows 10 will now officially support this high-compression, high-quality video format. I'm sure that every Torrent user is a little happier with Windows 10 now.

If you want to test out support for MKV on your install, you can download a sample video from Jellyfish. After the file downloads, when you open it up, Windows will ask you what app you want to use to open this type of file with; select Windows Media Player. After you select WMP, a warning will pop up saying that the player does not support this file but if you click 'Yes', the file will then play without issues.
