Blake Jorgensen, EA's Chief Financial Officer, said in a response to a question about Titanfall 2: "You should assume that's not in fiscal '16; it's more likely in fiscal '17". With EA's fiscal 2017 running from April 1, 2016 to March 31, 2017. Respawn Entertainment, the studio behind Titanfall 2, has said that the sequel to the mech-based first-person shooter would be "multiplatform" teasing that it would arrive on the PS4.

 

The original Titanfall was released onto the Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC, but never made it to Sony's consoles. Titanfall 2, when it's released, should reach the Xbox One, PS4 and PC.

Company seeking way to create eyes-free texting while driving

By: Michael Hatamoto | More News: Mobile Devices, Tablets & Phones | Posted: 4 hours, 34 mins ago

It's no secret that texting while driving is a dangerous - and often illegal activity - but it's something that occurs regardless of possible safety risks and being pulled over by the police. A new service from RayGo uses voice prompts to interact with your smartphone, and will automatically pause if the driver is going too fast.

 

 

RayGo hopes to give drivers a safer method to interact with text messages, as the app connects to a five-key Bluetooth controller mounted to a driver's steering wheel. In addition to text messages, users can interact with Gmail, Spotify, Facebook Messenger, and WhatsApp, with messages being read through the vehicle's speakers.

 

"RayGo is a product for the many of us who use their phones even though we know it's wrong, providing a much safer way to engage with your smartphone while driving," according to the RayGo on its Indiegogo page. The company wanted $30,000, and has raised $31,900 with 11 days left.

Microsoft: 'Google ships a big pile of... code' for Android updates

By: Michael Hatamoto | More News: Mobile Devices, Tablets & Phones | Posted: 9 hours, 33 mins ago

Google provides an open ecosystem with its Android mobile operating system, but that has led to fragmentation due to multiple versions of the OS running on such a large number of different products. Android is trying to close the gap, however, it's something that rivals such as Microsoft have picked up on while criticizing the OS.

"Google ships a big pile of... code, with no commitment to update your device," said Terry Myerson, Executive Vice President of Operating Systems, when speaking during the Microsoft Ignite conference keynote. "Google takes no responsibility to update customer devices and refuses to take responsibility to update their devices, leaving end users and businesses increasingly exposed every day they use an Android device."

 

Microsoft has had a rather dismal showing in the mobile space, but hopes Windows 10 will power a growing number of smartphones and tablets. The company also didn't disclose how it will deliver its updates to Windows 10 phones as needed in the future.

Mayweather-Pacquiao proves popular on Meerkat, Periscope

By: Michael Hatamoto | More News: Internet & Websites | Posted: 10 hours, 43 mins ago

The boxing super fight between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao may have left many boxing fans disappointed, but it proved extremely popular among Internet pirates. It wasn't difficult to find a live stream of the fight on Periscope and Meerkat, with users sharing streams directly from their TVs into the services before the opening bell.

 

mayweather-pacquiao-proves-popular-meerkat-periscope_01

 

High demand for the pay-per-view, available for $90 or $100 in the United States, led to Charter, Time Warner and other cable providers enduring service outages shortly before the main event. Piracy likely increased due to the problem, which actually temporarily delayed the start of Mayweather vs. Pacquiao.

 

Both Meerkat and Periscope have been used to stream Game of Thrones, live sporting events, and other high-profile subscription cable TV shows. Obviously, streaming a PPV broadcast violates the terms of service for both HBO and Showtime, and likely breaks some form of copyright law, but holding users accountable is difficult.
