Google to offer monthly self-driving vehicle reports to the public

By: Michael Hatamoto | More News: Tweaking & Overclocking | Posted: Jun 5, 2015 10:04 pm

To help ease concerns related to self-driving cars, Google will issue monthly reports based on accident data and other performance information of its program.




The Consumer Watchdog advocacy group pushed for Google to release information related to traffic accidents involving its self-driving vehicles. The Associated Press asked the California Department of Motor Vehicles and Google to see access of the reports, though was denied because of privacy issues.


Google self-driving vehicles have racked up more than 1 million miles traveled in autonomous mode, but some minor traffic accidents have also been reported. Google has again noted that human drivers were at fault, and its self-driving vehicles were not responsible.

Rumor: Microsoft 1TB Xbox One bundle will be announced soon

By: Michael Hatamoto | More News: Gaming Consoles | Posted: Jun 5, 2015 8:11 pm

Microsoft plans to launch a new Xbox One bundle featuring a console unit with 1TB of storage and the shiny new controller with a 3.5mm audio jack.




There was a brief listing on Amazon for the console bundle, which includes The Master Chief Collection for $400, but it has been removed. The Amazon listing noted that the "item will be released on June 15, 2015," which means a public announcement is expected during E3.


Although 1TB of storage may seem like overkill for game consoles, it could become a necessity with the rise of downloadable content. Destiny weighs in at 25GB, while Batman: Arkham Knight will be 45GB - so you may want that larger storage space.

Security experts say US government must make cybersecurity changes

By: Michael Hatamoto | More News: Hacking & Security | Posted: Jun 5, 2015 6:12 pm

The US government has confirmed that records of current and former federal employees are at risk, following news that the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) suffered a series of cyberattacks. Despite reportedly beginning in late 2014, it took until April before the intrusions were detected.




Here is some expert cybersecurity input regarding the breach:


There is a changing cybercriminal landscape that the United States has been relatively slow to adapt to:


"Cyber espionage by state-sponsored actors is in fact cybercrime," said Jason Polancich, founder and chief architect at SurfWatch Labs. "China and Russia signed a no-hack agreement last month likely, in part, because one is the produce (China) and the other is the marketer (Russia) of today's cybercrime, now a world-sized cottage industry."

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Peripherals | Posted: Jun 5, 2015 11:22 am

After teasing the Steam Controller for the last couple of years, with a few different iterations, Valve has finally introduced the Steam Controller. The company will be pushing out a very limited quantity of these drives on October 16 for those who pre-order now. The full release of the Steam Controller is November 10.



The video above is a good way of showing off what to expect from the Steam Controller, where Valve promises that it will be a blend of the traditional controller, and the prevision of a mouse. The front of the Steam Controller has two large circular control areas, and an analogue control stick. It also features twin haptic feedback reactors, too. Round back, we have trigger buttons with both analogue pull and a digital switch.


Valve is selling the Steam Controller for $49, with the promise of up to 80 hours of gameplay from a pair of AA batteries, and a 5-meter range from your PC.
