Google will support Chrome for XP until end of the year

Google will support Chrome for XP until end of the year

A year ago, Microsoft stopped support for their decade-old Windows XP operating system, meaning the millions of users still running the OS are vulnerable to exploits. Google wants to help.

Says Google: "At the operating system level, computers running XP are inherently in danger of being infected by malware and viruses, making it increasingly difficult for Chrome to provide a secure browsing environment. That's why we strongly encourage everyone to update to a supported, secure operating system.

That said, we know that not everyone can easily switch to a newer operating system. Millions of people are still working on XP computers every day. We want those people to have the option to use a browser that's up-to-date and as safe as possible on an unsupported operating system."


Google had promised to keep Chrome on XP support through April 2015, and now that we are here, Google says support has been extended until the end of the year.

Netflix orders 'Our Planet,' an eight part nature documentary in 4K

Netflix orders 'Our Planet,' an eight part nature documentary in 4K

Netflix has ordered "Our Planet," an eight-part nature documentary from the makers of the popular "Planet Earth" series.

The series will explore remote wilderness areas including deep ocean and polar ice caps and be filmed in 4K. The project is in conjunction with Silverback Films and the conservation group WWF and will be filmed over the next four years before release in 2019.

Alastair Fothergill and Keith Scholey are behind the new series, and the same team created "Planet Earth," "Frozen Planet," "Blue Planet," "Earth," "Bears," "African Cats" and "Chimpanzee."

"Netflix is proud to be the global home for perhaps Silverback's most ambitious project to date," said Lisa Nishimura, VP of Netflix original documentaries. "The 'Planet' projects have enjoyed great success on Netflix and have helped launch new technologies for viewing at home. We think watching 'Our Planet,' fully on-demand in 4K, will be an unforgettable experience for our members."

Check out this awesome video of GTA 5 for PC on the Oculus Rift DK2

A few days ago, Rockstar launched GTA 5 for the PC, and now we have multiple videos of the blockbuster game being played with the developer models of the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset.

Using the software vopX, which is a "driver specifically aimed at VR headsets like the Oculus Rift and supports many DX9-DX11 games," gamers have been able to get into the gigantic world of GTA for the PC.

How does vopX work? "It converts the displayed image to an output that is suitable for watching a game on the headset, in many cases in stereoscopic 3D. Beyond this base functionality vorpX offers many features specifically geared towards VR."

Check out one of the many very cool videos from the Oculus here:

It's true that I had delivered a couple of down quarters, but the whole economy was in the tank. Should I be expected to produce miracles? I didn't think so and was frankly shocked when the firm told me I was being let go.
Kindergarteners Celebrate Earth Day in "The Giving Tree" Music Video
By Arturo Avina Just in time for Earth Day, here's our music video adaptation of Shel Silverstein's "The Giving Tree." At this age, our kindergarteners have a very literal interpretation of the story, but it is my hope that they'll look back at their project years from now and derive a deeper understanding. Set to Madonna's "Live to Tell," watch these kids pull at your heartstrings as they sing and act to a classic...

WikiLeaks' Sony hack archives reveal upcoming Sony smartphone?

WikiLeaks' Sony hack archives reveal upcoming Sony smartphone?

Sony was infamously hacked and its secrets revealed last year. Now a few months later WikiLeaks has made the thousands of documents and hundreds of thousands of emails more accessible by creating a searchable database.

A lot of people have obviously been going through the archive and found all kinds of "new" information. In addition to highly confidential emails between the US government and Sony there's been less high profile leaks. A new one suggests that we might have our hands on an upcoming Sony flagship smartphone.

The device pictured in this article portrays close to what has been rumored of the next flagship smartphone by Sony. Xperia Z4 is expected to feature a new all-metal design, a reimagined power button with a fingerprint sensor, and a wholly updated user experience.

Even though the latter cannot be confimed from the pictures it does seem like the all-metal design is evident as is the redesigned and larger power button that might in fact have a sensor being rumored of.

These pictures seem like valid confidential Sony renders but they still can be just drafts that will never see the light of day. However it is also possible that they are in fact one of the first renders of the upcoming Z4.
