Microsoft sued by patent troll over graphics technology

Patent trolls are on the loose again.

Patent trolls are common in the technology industry and it seems like “Terminal Reality and Infernal Technologies” is targeting Microsoft this time. You might remember the name from a complaint involving EA from 2015. While that case was settled around October 2017, it seems like the company has a new target. Developer Terminal Reality closed in 2013, and since then it seems like its affiliate Infernal Technologies has been suing game developers.

Is Conan Exiles on Xbox One worth revisiting for the new content? Let’s take a look.

Here’s why Conan Exiles deserves your attention again.

Conan Exiles is an online survival game either played from the first-person or third-person perspective. While the title features numerous characters and mysteries to uncover, it still revolves around gathering resources, learning new schematics, and crafting better gear or shelter. Starting off with nothing more than a stone house, you’ll eventually be able to build entire cities with dangerous siege weaponry. This progression — from a lowly exile to the most powerful being — is what makes Conan Exiles so rewarding to experience.

Why Halo: The Master Chief Collection needs to come to PC

Here’s why the PC crowd deserves to experience The Master Chief Collection.

Offering four Halo games (including a remaster of Halo: Combat Evolved and Halo 2), The Master Chief Collection was expected to be a massive success when it launched for Xbox in 2014. However, due to the mountain of performance problems with the title, gamers grew to resent the Collection. Halo developer 343 Industries attempted many fixes, but for every problem solved, two more seemingly arose. With Halo 5: Guardians on the horizon, 343 eventually shifted its focus to that game. Ever since, the Master Chief Collection has remained broken.

However, hope was restored last year when 343 announced it was going to fix the game in 2018. With a testing program currently under way, things are looking up. As the game inches closer to stability, though, many are wondering if PC players will ever be able to play the game. Here’s why I think they should.

How to upgrade your PC’s graphics card (GPU)

Upgrading your graphics card (GPU) is mostly a simple process, but there’s still a process to follow.

It’s an exciting time getting a new graphics card for your PC. Whether you’ve been hanging on to the same one for years, or you’re a fan of the bleeding edge, it’s something that always brings new life to your gaming.

Best Laptops with an Optical Drive in 2018

Best overall
Runner up
Great value
Best for keen gamers

The best

ASUS ROG GL553

See at Amazon

Not only is the ASUS GL553 one of the finest entry-level gaming laptops you can buy, it also has an optical drive without being overly thick and heavy. The 15.6-inch 1080p display looks fantastic and it comes with Intel Core i5 or i7 processors, 16GB or 32GB of RAM and a mixture of SSD and HDD storage as standard.

Throw in ports galore (including USB-C), dedicated graphics from NVIDIA, and an easy-access upgrade bay to add more RAM and storage, and the GL553 is a bona fide winner. It’s also one of the most subtly designed gaming laptops around, so you could take it to work and not feel silly. You’ll be looking at starting prices around $1,000.

Bottom line: Subtle styling, powerful internals, and an attractive price complement the optical drive here perfectly.

One more thing: ASUS laptops are very upgrade-friendly so you can always improve your RAM and storage down the line….

Microsoft’s ‘intelligent edge,’ and how it impacts the world

Microsoft’s recent reorganization emphasizes the company’s focus on the intelligent cloud and intelligent edge.

Cloud computing has moved from “the idealistic next step in computing” advocated by tech companies, to the pragmatic beginning of an intelligent infrastructure with real-world impact and a clear path for growth. Edge computing is arguably the natural evolution of remote computing in the intelligent cloud and local computing on Internet of Things (IoT) devices and consumer electronics.

Many have argued that Microsoft’s cloud investments are too far removed from users to have meaningful impact and that edge computing is little more than technical lingo. Those people are wrong. Microsoft’s cloud computing investments have real-world impact, and its complementary edge computing strategy is doing the same.

What Microsoft’s cloud focus means to you…

Hands-on with Windows Mixed Reality’s new ‘Skyloft’ environment (video)

Windows Mixed Reality receives a few notable updates in the upcoming ‘April 2018 update.’ Let’s take a closer look.

Coming in the Windows 10 ‘April 2018 update’ for Windows 10 are a couple of new improvements and changes for users of Windows Mixed Reality (WMR). The biggest new change is the inclusion of an environment called “Skyloft” that now exists alongside Cliff House.

The update adds a new dedicated “Places” button in the Start menu that lists all the environments you have installed on your device. So far, there are only two, being Cliff House and Skyloft, but this new Places’area may house more locations in the future.

The new Skyloft environment is rather different from the old Cliff House, and is far more open complex with big rooms and lots of space to mess around in. There’s also lots more virtual furniture, which can be customized or removed at will.

Other changes to WMR involve how users manipulate windows and objects. You can now more easily manipulate them with t…

The new Amazon Echo Dot Kids edition has parental controls and a worry-free guarantee

Don’t let your kids accidentally order pizza anymore.

The other day a family member asked me to help him figure out how his youngest daughter, who isn’t even two yet, was spending money on his Fire tablet. She had apparently spent more than $20 just clicking around and buying random videos. I showed him how to set up parental controls and block those activities from happening automatically but not before accidentally spending $2 myself. Amazon does not put a lot of barriers between you and spending money, and that can be an issue if you have young children. Especially when they learn to say “Alexa.”

Today, Amazon introduced the Echo Dot Kids Edition along with upgraded versions of the FreeTime and the more advanced FreeTime Unlimited services….
