Sony's PS4 hits 10 Million

Sony was more than happy this week to announce that they've sold 10 Million PS4 consoles so far as they continue to outpace the competing Xbox One from Microsoft. Microsoft hasn't released any numbers recently but it is being reported that the PS4 could be ouselling the Xbox One by a margin of 3-to-1 in the past few months. The best part of the whole deal is that the fierce competition is great for consumers as we've already seen a price drop from Microsoft and chances are good that Sony will have to follow suit eventually which I doubt any will complain when they have to spend less money. The WSJ has the story.

 Sony Corp. said Tuesday it has sold 10 million PlayStation 4 videogame consoles to consumers, as the Japanese consumer electronics company continues to outpace Microsoft Corp. in the new console sales war.

The PlayStation 4's dominance over Microsoft's rival Xbox One console has been a hot topic in the videogames industry, which is gathering in large numbers in Cologne this week for the annual Gamescom conference.

Break Cryptography With Your Hands

With enough technical savvy you can do almost anything. That's the word from Tel Aviv University anyhow. They manage to actually break cryptography with your bare hands by measuring the electical "ground" potential in computers when you physically make contact with them. This sounds completely unbelievable (unless your Lucy using 25% of your brain), but in reality it's true. Take a look and find out exactly how they can pull this off.

A signal can be picked up by touching exposed metal on a computer’ chassis with a plain wire. Or that wire can make contact anywhere on the body of an attacker touching the computer with a bare hand (sweaty hands work best). The ground signal can also be measured by fastening an alligator clip at the far end of an Ethernet, VGA, or USB cable attached to the computer, or even wirelessly with sensitive voltage-detection equipment.

Windows Threshold Preview for ARM

It's nothing new to get a preview of a main Windows OS and we've expected a preview of Windows Threshold for a while now. What we didn't expect is that there was a preview for ARM powered devices as well. This could include a non-pro Surface 3 and will definitely include Windows Phone. It will be interesting to see what devices are supported for the preview and how it will work out. In the past, ARM devices have been notoriously difficult to upgrade to preview versions of Windows.

There will be a separate preview of Threshold running on ARM processors, too. My sources are saying the current target date for that preview is January or February 2015. As the ARM-based version of Threshold -- which should run on both Windows Phones and tablets -- isn't expected to include the Windows desktop, the focus will be on changes Microsoft is making to the Metro-Style Start screen environment.

Ram Headbutts Drone then Pilot

If you are flying a drone around wildlife and the drone gets knocked out of the sky by the wildlife, maybe you should be a bit more cautious when trying to recover the drone. Just saying. This dummy didn't figure that out - at first.
