• Gerucht: Volgend jaar een ouderwetse Call of Duty

    Fans mogen nog een kleine drie weken wachten totdat Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare uitkomt. Toch begint de geruchtenmolen over de Call of Duty van 2017 al langzaam te draaien. Volgend jaar heeft Sledgehammer Games de eer om ons te voorzien van een mooi pakketje met schietpret zoals broertje Infinity Ward en zusje Treyarch dat in voorgaande jaren al gedaan hebben. Uitgever Activision heeft met de drie bovenstaande ontwikkelaars namelijk een drie jarige cyclus afgesproken per titel. Op zijn beurt

  • China fosters innovative AI research through competition

    The Chinese government has been unequivocal in its goal to become the global AI leader. Three of the largest tech companies in China — Sougou, China’s second-biggest search giant, Sinovation Ventures, and internet firm Bytedance — have joined forces to bring that plan to fruition. The companies pooled funds and data to create the AI Challenger contest. The contest features a prize pool of 2 million yuan, or approximately $300,000. Entrants will presumably be judged on innovati

  • Android O is delightfully named Oreo, is rolling out in phases ‘soon’

    You can now relax: Android O is officially named Oreo.  In an announcement timed – a little melodramatically – to coincide with the solar eclipse in New York, Google revealed the name of its latest and greatest version of Android. Thankfully, it went with the obvious choice, instead or repeating the mistakes of Nougat (which should have been Nutella, obviously). I assume there’s a licensing deal in place. For those who haven’t been keeping up, Oreo isn’t exact
  • Nieuwe Android heet Oreo

    Google onthulde vanavond de naam van Android O, de alweer achtste versie van de systeemsoftware voor Android smartphones. De naam wordt Oreo, een chocoladekoekje. Eerdere versies van Android werden ook genoemd naar snoepgoed.De presentatie viel samen met een totale zonsverduistering in de VS en er was een speciale site voor opgetuigd.
    Android O bevat overwegend kleine veranderingen, hoewel sommige niet onbelangrijk, zoals picture-in-picture, ondersteuning voor meerdere schermen, kleurprofielen e
  • Mass Effect: Andromeda will get no more DLC — and that’s for the best

    The team behind Mass Effect Andromeda announced over the weekend it’d no longer be supporting the game, either through patches or through single-player story DLC. And while that’s a bummer — it’s also no more than we should have expected. I’m not sure exactly what everyone wanted from Bioware’s latest red-headed stepchild. The game was absolutely roasted when it was released. Most reviews that I read were, at best, lukewarm. Everyone got in sho
  • On-demand worker startup Bizzby spams users with innocent man’s address

    Bizzby is a service that lets people book tradespeople and laborers on-demand — think of it like Handy or TaskRabbit. A few hours ago, it sent an email to all of its users — tradies and general public alike — asking if they’d like to install a thermostat for Reuben, from Hartlepool, England. Can someone *urgently* get a plumber to Reuben in Hartlepool, some app has just sent his contact details to their entire database. pic.twitter.com/bUXEeXF428 — Jim Waterson (@j

  • 3 failsafe strategies to master the freemium app model

    Creating a free mobile app that gains serious traction these days is much harder than it was in the mid-to-late 2000’s. When the “App Boom” was in full swing (around 2008), people were downloading apps left and right and it was much easier to break into the market. Nowadays, most people are content with the current apps on their device and aren’t actively looking to download new ones. In fact, some reports even indicate that smartphone owners only use three or so apps on
