Presented by Intel Like a lot of the indie studios that have cropped up over the last few years, Spearhead Games’ founders, Atul Mehra and Malik Boukhira, were originally AAA developers. The pair met when they were working at EA in Montreal on a project that wasn’t looking very healthy. “We were working on something that was just dying,” Mehra remembers. “But it was a coincidence that we teamed up; I was getting ready to leave EA when one of my old friends, who was working with Malik, said we should talk because we were thinking the same thing. So that’s when we started to consider doing something together.” And it’s when Mehra visited Boukhira at home to have a look at a prototype and got very excited about it. “That’s it,” he told Boukhira. “We’re quitting our jobs.” But Spearhead Games would take another four months before it was established and able to actually start working on projects. The … [Read more...] about Spearhead Games: From leaving AAA to making a time-traveling Columbo

If the iPhone X still had a finger print scanner (TouchID). Then maybe, but since it only has FaceID, then it's a no go. Apple could have included TouchID as well, but forcing people as your testers to improve your FaceID is just wrong. posted on 05 Dec 2017, 09:38 1 27. midan (Posts: 575; Member since: 09 Oct 2017) How they could have had Touch ID?

Until the early 1970s, it could be said that, like politics, all chemistry was local. That changed in dramatic fashion with a series of discoveries concerning the global effects of a family of chemicals called chlorofluorocarbons, or CFCs. These compounds had played a key role in the midcentury chemical revolution, allowing such innovations as safe refrigeration, cheap aerosol deodorants, and widespread air conditioning. First commercialized by DuPont in the early 1930s under the trade name Freon, CFCs appeared to be the perfect industrial chemical: nontoxic, nonflammable, and odorless. But in 1973, a pair of chemists at the University of California, Irvine–Sherwood Rowland and his postdoctoral fellow Mario Molina–began to explore the fate of the CFC gases that were being emitted into the atmosphere. Molina began the investigation of CFCs in October of that year, and by Christmas, the researchers had their answer: the CFCs were breaking down in the atmospheric … [Read more...] about Remembering the Montreal Protocol
WB Montreal, the studio behind 2013’s Batman: Arkham Origins, has reportedly canceled work on an unannounced Suicide Squad game.Kotaku reported that the decision to pull the plug on the project came after “a long period of turbulence” at the Warner Bros. studio, including the loss of both studio head Martin Carrier and executive producer Reid Schneider. The game was apparently — and logically — a co-op focused affair, but “failed to impress” Warner Bros. executives during the early stages of development.The same report also stated that in the place of the Suicide Squad game will be a new Batman adaptation starring Bruce Wayne’s son, Damian. Due to the finality of the elder Wayne’s story in Batman: Arkham Knight, and WB Montreal’s previous work with the series, this game wouldn’t be particularly surprising.There is another game rumored to be in development that is absent from the most recent report, however: a Superman … [Read more...] about Report: WB Montreal has canceled its ‘Suicide Squad’ game
What is Far Cry?I’ve asked that question many times. Far Cry the first is a first-person shooter set in a lush tropical environment. The game’s South Pacific archipelago offers wide expanses of space for players to stretch out in, but it’s not technically a true open world game. That’s what Far Cry 2 is, with the action staged against the backdrop of sociopolitical unrest in an unnamed African nation. The sequel excels at immersing players in the varied environments, with everything in the game — from shooting to driving to performing in-the-field first aid — locked in that first-person perspective. There’s an overarching narrative, but the real story in Far Cry 2 is the one that you write for yourself.Now we’re looking ahead to Far Cry 3, which hits PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC platforms on December 4, 2012. Ubisoft Montreal is bringing back the open world and the tropical environment, with the game’s … [Read more...] about As Far Cry 3 approaches, we ask Ubi Montreal: What is Far Cry?
“I like that my sounds are open to interpretation.”Sometimes, all it takes is two — or, in this case, make that deux, since we’re talking about the Montreal-based French-speaking electronic duo Essaie pas, whose name translates to either “Don’t Try” or “Try Not,” depending on how you look at it.That’s not to say vocalist Marie Davidson and instrumentalist/producer Pierre Guerineau have a negative outlook on their work — pas du tout! Instead, they’re more in step with the Charles Bukowksi maxim “Don’t try… wait for it to come to you” on their modern/retro-cool hybrid new album Demain est une autre nuit, out now in various formats via DFA Records. “Yeah, it’s a positive thing,” concurs Guerineau. “And when you’re taking action, have no fear. Whatever you have to do, just do it.”Guerineau and Davidson do it quite right all over Demain — the full title … [Read more...] about Montreal’s Essaie Pas push the limits of what you can do with a synth
LG just altered the TV landscape. Today, the company announced that one of its 55-inch OLED televisions is now available for pre-order in the U.S. for $3500, offering videophiles an affordable alternative to the now-discontinued plasma television. LG says Best Buy will be the first to sell the new curved OLED set starting August 24, and is accepting pre-orders now at BestBuy.com.Related: Why the world is shunning OLED TVs — and LG is embracing them.While $3500 might seem like a pretty steep price for a 55-inch TV, consider this: LG’s one and only OLED TV model last year, the 55EA9800, was introduced at $11,000 before dropping it to $8000 shortly thereafter. That makes $3500 an enticingly low price of entry, especially considering that OLED TVs provide picture quality that is without rival. To add a little more perspective, Panasonic’s top 55-inch plasma model, the P55VT60, cost $2300 when it was first introduced.The announcement comes at … [Read more...] about LG’s $3500 OLED TV is the answer to plasma lovers’ prayers
Funny, isn't it, that during the same week a U.S. lawmaker told federal regulators to back off in connection with the proposed America Online (NYSE: AOL) and Time Warner (NYSE: TWX) merger, rumors that could have a serious negative impact on the deal began to surface.AOL has been intentionally blocking its instant messaging rivals, the unconfirmed reports allege, while furtively developing a way to make its AOL Instant Messenger (AIM) service compatible with ICQ ("I Seek You").In the top-heavy world of instant online messaging, ICQ sits highest on the heap with a reported 70 million users. AOL claims 61 million. AOL owns ICQ. So there are those two up in the stratosphere and everyone else is far, far below.The implication is that AOL is keeping the lid on its latest accomplishment because if word were to leak out that the company could make AIM interoperable with ICQ, then AOL would be forced to do the same for its competitors -- thus leveling the instant messenger playing field.

Is Avaya on the road to financial recovery? What will happen to business partners and customers if it is not?The company last month filed for Chapter 11 protection for itself and some of its United States subsidiaries -- a move that makes it "the first major established technology company that's dying as a direct result of the cloud," according to Ian Campbell, CEO of Nucleus Research.However, the move actually is a strategic and tactical restructuring that's meant to retire a heavy debt burden, according to John Sullivan, Avaya's treasurer.Customers have switched from a CapEx to OpEx approach, he noted. As a result, revenue is recognized over a longer period. In the meantime, tech spending has been curtailed, and the commoditization of traditional unified communications has led to increased competition.Avaya has transformed from its original hardware-based business model to a software and services approach, Sullivan said. It is a leading player in its markets, and it had US$3 billion … [Read more...] about Does Avaya Have a Post-Chapter 11 Prayer?
