Apple’s WorldWide Developers Conference has grown to such a big event, developers are not only shelling out $1599 for the privilege of attending, they are now relegated to a lottery status to get tickets for the event.
WWDC 2015 is slated to run from June 8 to June 12 at Moscone West in San Francisco. Developers who registered to attend should know the status of their application by Monday, April 20 at 5 p.m. Pacific.
There is all variations of technology and sometimes the least profound brand can make the biggest impact on the world. A World Health worker has designed a new shoe that has the ability to grow with children in the third world to provide them with comfortable fitting shoes for at least five years.
Microsoft is now in a cooperative partnership with three top game engine makers to provide full access to Microsoft’s Visual Studio to make the process of developing game engines much easier.
This arrangement will make it easier for developers to use the familiar Visual Studio suite of features with the most popular gaming engines in the near future, which should help improve the development process for new games.
It has been a long time coming, but it’s that time again: The time to crank up the music and get your rock nerd on. Come this fall, you will have the choice to play either Rock Band or Guitar Hero, but which one will be the best fit for you?
Many people think that Apple product users border on the fanatical, and that may or may not be true, but fanatical behavior is not limited to just Apple, it spills over into Android also. Of course alcohol is the perfect fuel to power a debate.
"Police believe alcohol played a big role in this fight," said local television station KTUL in the most obvious statement ever.
The FCC voted Friday to approve its so-called Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) plan to open up wireless frequencies from 3550MHz to 3700MHz to new users, including new devices that could use the spectrum like current devices use Wi-Fi.
If local content consumers are already perfectly comfortable with downloading shows and movies from torrent sites and digital lockers for free, Netflix has to keep prices low in order to attract customers.
The legislators and Governor of the State of Oregon must want to entice Google Fiber to the state pretty badly, so badly in fact that the whole bunch of them got together this week and amended the state’s law concerning corporate taxation just to accommodate Google Fiber.This was the state's second attempt at rewriting the tax laws to lure Google Fiber to the area.
The bill, signed yesterday by Gov. Kate Brown, "exempts 'gigabit' Internet service like Google's from a thorny property tax that dates to the 1970s and was originally intended for microwave towers.
Another review of the Noctua NH-U9S CPU cooler has popped up on the internet today. This time around it is the crew at Overclockers Club doing the reviewing.
While All-In-One (AIO) coolers are great, it doesn't always fit within the users build preference or budget. It's also true that not every consumer wants to overclock, but do like the idea of lower temperatures compared to stock coolers. The NH-U9S fits perfectly within the socket specifications for Intel or AMD. This is great for small form factors like ITX or M-ATX motherboards.
It looks as though Verizon is finally starting to listen to its customers when it comes to cable bundles. Could cable companies finally be on the verge of true à la carte TV packages?
Verizon (VZ) is breaking the TV Cable Bundle as competition mounts and cable cutters grow. A new FIOS TV package from Verizon lets customers pick groups of channels they want to watch. This, Verizon says, will give customers flexibility to purchase only certain groups of channels they want to watch. This is the latest sign of how Pay TV providers are adapting to stepped up competition and the growing number of "cord cutters".
High school students from around the world are gearing up to showcase their innovative builds for the FIRST Robotics Competition, held in St. Louis, Mo., April 22-25. But the work that went into their robots started many, many months ago. Students and their engineer mentors brainstorm efficient building methods throughout the year. By the time the kits from For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology, or FIRST, arrive in January, everyone is buzzing with ideas.
While it may not be faster than the ultimate top end speed of the Intel SSD 750, I believe it to be faster where it matters most. The better handling of IO's less than 4K in size helps with responsiveness in small file manipulations and other operations that are more likely to be encountered in consumer setups. We know the NVMe SM951 is coming to OEMs, but we would *really* like to see it in retail as well.
I don't think Comcast and Time Warner will be too happy to hear about this.
Attorneys who are investigating Comcast’s $45.2 billion proposal to create a nationwide cable giant are leaning against the merger out of concerns that consumers would be harmed and could submit their review as soon as next week, said the people. The final decision about the deal will be made by the division’s senior officials.
This simulator is cool but it lacks two very important things...Bruce Willis and a soundtrack by Aerosmith.

Starting on April 24, it appears that Apple will be offering "Apple Watch Basics" workshops in some of its retail stores around the world, helping customers who begin receiving their watches on that day to learn how to use them.
This is an outrage! A human rights violation! How can you deny Nintendo to people in prison? This is cruel and unusual punishment!
Former Pirate Bay operator Fredrik Neij can't play games on his Nintendo 8-bit console in prison. The prison denied the request because there's no way to open the box to check it for concealed items, a decision the Pirate Bay operator is now appealing before the administrative court.
Other than a desperate attempt at staying relevant, I have no idea why WikiLeaks would put thousands of Sony employees personal information in a searchable database.
"The attackers used the dissemination of stolen information to try to harm SPE and its employees, and now WikiLeaks regrettably is assisting them in that effort," Sony Pictures said in a statement. "We vehemently disagree with WikiLeaks' assertion that this material belongs in the public domain and will continue to fight for the safety, security, and privacy of our company and its more than 6,000 employees."
Honestly, If I am going to be shot out into space on a one way trip to Mars, I'd definitely want NASA's help.
NASA's top priority is still taking humans to Mars, and it says private companies who want to do the same don't stand a chance without its support. Administrator Charles Bolden told a US House budget committee, "our ultimate focus is the journey to Mars and everything comes back to that," adding that the agency still plans to land there by the 2030s.
With the release of Chrome 42 for Windows, Mac and Linux, Google has fixed 45 security flaws and removed NPAPI support.
Judging by the bug bounties paid out by Google, the most serious vulnerability fixed in Chrome 42 is a cross-origin bypass flaw in the HTML parser (CVE-2015-1235). The discovery of this high severity bug earned an anonymous researcher $7,500.
