A man from Roswell, Georgia, is dead after he attempted to sell his PlayStation 4 on Craigslist last week. The man, Daniel Zeitz, a 28-year-old, put an ad up on Craigslist to sell his PS4 and found some interested buyers, and they set up a time and place to meet. They decided to meet in a parking lot, and the “buyers” (a 20-year-old-man and a 16-year-old girl) decided to try to steal the PS4 from Zeitz. When the theft failed, the 16-year-old decided to get out a gun. In the chaos, the gun ended up going off with the bullet going through the 20-year-old’s hand before finally hitting Zeitz in the chest. He later died as a result of the injury.
Microsoft has officially announced Windows 10, not Windows 9 like most people were expecting. It looks to be a rather big update and at the event in San Francisco, Microsoft only revealed small parts of the new update.
Windows 10 will be available for all types of devices, anything from a four-inch smartphone to an 80-inch TV. Microsoft is looking for incredible scalability as well, with Windows 10 able to run on a small microprocessor or on something fit for Azure servers.
Windows 10 is for everyone – and it runs deeper than the scale. Microsoft has turned back on the radical ideas of Windows 8, the Metro UI and full touch-interface, replacing it with a more timid crossover between Windows 7 and Windows 8.
Towards the end of 2013, Apple signed a deal with GT Advanced Technologies that would see the former advance over half a billion bucks to the later, to be repaid over five years, beginning in 2015. Why? In order to accelerate the latter’s progress in constructing a state-of-the-art production facility that will allow sapphire glass to be produced in mass quantities and cheaply.
Places is a privacy-centric startup that’s building a secure Dropbox-style platform for file sharing and messaging — but one that has end-to-end, client-side encryption built in. It’s currently launched in early alpha and is inviting people to sign up for a forthcoming beta at Joinplaces.com. (The alpha is also open to Windows and Mac OS users.)
Windows 8.1 Pro includes built-in drive encryption tools. These tools work even if you don’t have a TPM chip. TPM, or Trusted Platform Module, is encryption-ready hardware. You’ll need a spare USB thumb drive, though. Encryption tools are hidden away in the depths of the machine, so finding them can make you feel like an International Person of Mystery.
