Fast enough for gaming, fast enough for drivingnews 2016 audi tt 28

Image by Audi

While you look at this 2016 Audi TT, the driver is looking at the 'virtual cockpit, an all-digital instrument cluster powered by an embedded Visual Computing Module (VCM). Nvidia's quad-core Tegra 30 processor brings fast, 60fps response time to the 12.3-inch, 1,440x540-pixel display. That's fast enough to play PC games?but here, that power helps the digital readouts react in real time to how the car is driving.

Don't get fooled into clicking phony Windows 10 upgrade emails

If you?re still waiting for your reservation to come up as Microsoft rolls out Windows 10, we can?t blame you for being eager to get your virtual hands on Microsoft?s latest OS. But if you get an email encouraging you upgrade to Windows 10, you?ll want to exercise a little caution, lest you get taken by scammers.

A post published to Cisco Systems?s company blog outlines how scammers are taking advantage of Windows 10?s launch to push ransomware onto unsuspecting PC users.  At first glance, the emails look reasonably legit: Cisco notes that scammers are spoofing the sender?s email address to make it look as if the message is from Microsoft. Also, the blue-and-white color scheme used in the message nearly matches the colors Microsoft is using for Windows 10 marketing materials. So unless you look carefully, you could get fooled into thinking the email is actually from Microsoft.

Mt. Gox CEO Karpeles arrested by Japanese police

The CEO of failed Bitcoin exchange Mt.Gox was arrested in Japan early Saturday by police, according to several media reports.

Mark Karpeles faces charges related to the loss of 650,000 bitcoins worth hundreds of millions of U.S. dollars when the Tokyo-based trading exchange collapsed in February 2014.

Karpeles, a French citizen, is suspected of accessing the company?s computer systems and falsifying financial data, according Japan?s Kyodo News.

Japanese broadcaster NHK showed video of a man that appeared to be Karpeles being led to a car by police in a residential district of Tokyo. The TV station said the footage was recorded around 6:40am Saturday, or Friday afternoon U.S. time.

How to change Windows 10's default web browser to Chrome, Firefox, or Opera

When you claim your free upgrade to Windows 10, the operating system pulls a nasty trick that could confuse non-techies that don?t know how to go digging around in system settings. The express installation option?a.k.a. the one non-technical users will choose?automatically sets your default web browser to Microsoft?s new Edge, even if you defaulted to Chrome, Firefox, Opera, or another web browser in Windows 7 or 8.

Into the Stars preview: Call it Space Oregon Trail, call it FTL, call it Ishmael

When I look at Into the Stars, I picture the stereotypical Hollywood producer, hands held up in front of the face like an invisible camera lens pointed at an imaginary marquis: "Imagine FTL," says the producer, eyes glinting, "but you fly the ship."

Boom. Elevator pitch over. Greenlit. Start production.

Space jam

I mean, it says it right on the Kickstarter page: Into the Stars is "Oregon Trail meets FTL in an open world." Which is honestly a bit like saying "Oregon Trail meets Space Oregon Trail" but that's fine.

Into the Stars

You're the captain of the starship Enterprise Non-Copyright Infringing Name. Its mission? To explore strange new worlds, mine them for resources, and hopefully not get shot to bits by a pursuing enemy ship or have the entire crew starve to death.

Microsoft bests Google in patent case appeal

A federal appeals court has handed Microsoft a win against Google in a long-running lawsuit over patent licensing that was originally filed against Motorola in 2010.

A panel of three judges from the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco upheld a lower court ruling that set a licensing rate for some patents owned by Motorola that was significantly lower than the company had originally asked for.

The dispute began after Motorola sent a letter to Microsoft asking it to pay as much as $4 billion per year to license patents relating to the 802.11 standard that underpins Wi-Fi and the H.264 video encoding standard. Since then, Google purchased Motorola Mobility and its patent portfolio, including the patents at issue in this case. It then sold Motorola Mobility to Lenovo while retaining ownership of the patents.
