All that happened and more within the service’s virtual reality during its pilot run from 1986 to 1988. The features both cautiously and recklessly implemented by Habitat ‘s developers, and the feedback they received from its users, laid down the template for all the more advanced graphical online worlds to come. At the top of the post, you can watch Lucasfilm’s original Habitat promotional video promise a “strange new world where names can change as quickly as events, surprises lurk at every turn, and the keynotes of existence are fantasy and fun,” one where “thousands of avatars, each controlled by a different human, can converge to shape an imaginary society.” (All performed, the narrator notes, “with the cooperation of a huge mainframe computer in Virginia.”) The form this society eventually took impressed Habitat ‘s creators as much as anyone, as Farmer writes in his “ Habitat Anecdotes” from 1988, an examination of the most memorable happenings and phenomena among its users.

One of the reasons you might want to make sure your software is up to date is that some media players download subtitles automatically from several shared online repositories. An attacker, as the researchers proved, could manipulate the website’s ranking algorithm and not only would entice more unsuspecting users to manually download his subtitles, but would also guarantee that his crafted malicious subtitles would be those automatically downloaded by the media players. No additional details were disclosed yet about how each video player is affected, although the researchers did share the details to each of the software developers so they can tackle the issue. They reported that some of the problems are already fixed in their current versions, while others are still being investigated. It might be a good idea to watch carefully and update your system before the details come out. Meanwhile, we can look at the trailer: Filed under: news , security hacks

Currently, Kodi will search for content by movie and TV show title, actors, albums or artists. Any add-ons or plugins are not searched, as this feature integrates with the Kodi library only. You can also use your voice to 'type', speaking what you want to enter, rather than having to use the on-screen keyboard. That's a huge improvement and a great feature on the Apple TV . Check out the feature in action in the video below. Kodi 18 Leia Skin Kodi updated the skin from Confluence to Estuary when upgrading from Kodi 16 to Kodi 17. We haven't seen any evidence that there'll be a change with Kodi 18, and Estuary is the skin in the current version. That's not a particularly bad move, in our opinion; besides, there are loads of other skins that you can download. More legal content Kodi's reputation is rather undeserved in some quarters: the core software is completely legal, it's more that third-party developers have written dubious add-ons.

This stands in stark contrast to the Nexus 6, which had 90 second boot times. Our Pixel reviews found boot times to be 47 second, a big improvement. Now, were hoping for just 23 seconds with Android O. The biggest headache for phone users remains battery life, so Googles doing its part to help reduce battery drain with new Android O optimizations. A lot of the battery life tweaks will happen behind the scenes and allow developers to better limit battery life usage. However, you may also see helpful tips within the battery usage menu. The Android O battery menu will include which apps and settings are eating your battery life, but how long youve actually used the app. If youre using Snapseed for 5 minutes, but its taken 13% of your battery, thats a problem. This is all part of Googles stretch goal of achieving multi-day battery life with behind-the-scenes background limits and helpful battery life suggestions for the end-user.

What is an EEG, and what have studies concerning its security found? Two new studies by the University of Alabama and the University of Washington have revealed the malicious possibilities lurking in the shadows of impressive promises of brain-computer interface (BCI) developers: the ability to access PINs and other private information. Electroencephalograms (EEG) are tests that detect electrical activity in your brain using a skullcap studded with electrodes. This technology has been used in the medical sector for years — for example, to diagnose schizophrenia as far back as 1998. However it is now due to be used for far more commercial enterprises. Rudimentary versions, such as Emotiv's Epoc+ have been released with the promise of far more sophisticated versions just around the corner, including examples being developed by Elon Musk and Facebook .

Conclusion You have a simple goal: get more conversions. I wish I could say, “Yes, getting more conversions from your blog is easy!” It is. And it isnt. Creating long-form content is not easy. At least not in my experience. Launching a comprehensive content marketing campaign is not simple. Hiring growth hackers, developers, marketers, and writers isnt a breeze. Designing a compelling landing page and blowing it up with value isnt a cinch. Conducting months of split and multivariate testing is complicated and time-consuming. But boosting your conversion rates? It doesnt have to be that hard! I’m not trying to end on a false happy note either. The fact is, with the right tools, you can get a lot more conversions from your blog. Sprinkle in some popups, hand out CTAs like beers at happy hour, and you’ll get instant improvement. I guarantee it. Implement these tactics, and report back here next Tuesday. I want to see what you’ve done.

First announced back at E3 in 2014, Crackdown 3 has walked the knife-edge of vaporware, often going months without any update. For instance, the games official sites last blog post was eight months ago. However, what has been shown in the past proves it to be one of the most promising games coming to Xbox One , and a project that can really take advantage of the upcoming Project Scorpio . While developers Reagent Games and Sumo Digital have been keeping shtum about Crackdown 3 in the past year, we have a good idea of the games technology thanks to a hands-on back in 2015. We also expect there to be a lot of news coming about the game at E3 2017 next month, where Crackdown 3 is likely to take centre stage at Microsofts press conference. The killer feature that everything else in Crackdown 3 is hooked on is destruction.

Google has been smoothing Android's rougher edges over the last few revisions, but there's one thing you interact with constantly that still needs some work: text. Until now, developers had to specify a text size, and that's all the text would be without third-party workaroundseven if that meant it was super-tiny or so big it overflowed. Now, they can create "autosizing TextViews" with Google's tools. Devs will have three settings to control the functionality of autosizing text in their apps.
