The 'Wipeout' sequel you've wanted isn't coming from Sony

It's not a great time to be a Wipeout fan. Unless you're eager to re-play Wipeout HD through the Omega Collection, you don't exactly have many choices when it comes to hyper-stylized sci-fi racing. Take heart, however — R8 Studios has released the f…

Every PS4, PS3 and PS Vita game you can download for free in June

PS4 free games

E3 2017 is right around the corner, which means that Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo are preparing to show off all of the new games, hardware and updates they have prepared for the coming months. But while Microsoft has Project Scorpio lined up and Nintendo is still riding the Switch wave, Sony doesn’t have a comparable announcement for the big show. Thankfully, that’s not going to stop the company from releasing free PS4, PS3 and Vita games to PS Plus subscribers next month.

Sling TV begins rolling out traditional ‘grid’ channel guide

Live television is undergoing a revolution, and while it is mostly a welcomed thing — who doesn’t like the idea of contract-free live TV streaming? — it does have a downside: some of the new services are less-than-simple to navigate. While this may not be a problem for the youngest generation who will grow up exposed to these new-fangled interfaces, … Continue reading

Five Democratic senators today asked the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to find out who was behind attacks on the Federal Communications Commission’s public commenting system. The FCC website failed on May 8 just as many people were trying to submit comments on the commission’s plan to gut net neutrality rules.

“The public comment period associated with the FCC’s rulemaking authority is a critical part of the regulatory process and the primary way for the American people to make their voices heard,” senators Brian Schatz (D-Hawaii), Al Franken (D-Minn.), Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.), Ed Markey (D-Mass.), and Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) wrote in a letter to FBI Acting Director Andrew McCabe. “The reported cyberattack on the FCC’s Electronic Comment Filing System is extremely troubling given that it threatens to stifle the public’s ability to weigh in on these issues.”

“We ask that the FBI prioritize this matter and investigate the source of this attack,” the senators also wrote. “This particular attack may have denied the American people the opportunity to contribute to what is supposed to be a fair and transparent process, which in turn may call into question the integrity of the FCC‘s rulemaking proceedings.”

Silk Road Founder Loses Appeal and Will Serve Life

OutOnARock quotes a report from Yahoo: Ross Ulbricht, the founder of the darknet marketplace known as Silk Road, has lost his appeal of a 2015 conviction that has him serving a life sentence on drug trafficking and money laundering charges, according to a federal appeals court decision released Wednesday morning. Ulbricht argued that the district court that convicted him violated the Fourth Amendment — which protects against unreasonable searches and seizures — by wrongly denying his motion to suppress evidence, and that he was deprived of his right to a fair trial. “On the day of Ulbricht’s arrest, the government obtained a warrant to seize Ulbricht’s laptop and search it for a wide variety of information related to Silk Road and information that would identify Ulbricht as Dread Pirate Roberts,” states the decision by the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit in Downtown Manhattan. “Ulbricht moved to suppress the large quantity of evidence obtained from his laptop, challenging the constitutionality of that search warrant.”

Best DVR for cord cutters

Last updated May 31, 2017 to add our review of the Tablo Dual OTA DVR.

Here’s the hard truth for cord-cutters right now: The ideal over-the-air DVR doesn’t exist.

While some products are better than others, all of them—from Tablo and TiVo to Channel Master DVR+ and HDHomeRun with Plex—have at least one critical weakness. If you want to record broadcast TV channels from an antenna, you must decide which of those weaknesses you’ll tolerate.

The good news is that the lowly antenna is experiencing a rebirth, and we’re likely to see more over-the-air DVR products later in 2017 and beyond. But if you want to start recording broadcast channels now, here’s a rundown of where the current products stand:

Galaxy S8 users will be spared the Bixby assistant for another month

Galaxy S8 Bixby

After dusting itself off following the Note 7 fiasco of 2016, Samsung this year came back strong with the release of the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus. Sporting a new infinity display along with some solid hardware upgrades, Samsung’s premium 2017 smartphone lineup has been well received by both reviewers and consumers. In fact, after unveiling the device this past April, Samsung noted that pre-orders for the S8 in particular were 30% higher than what Samsung saw last year with the S7.
