Graffiti and satellites combine for a massive animated GIF
Look, it isn't easy making GIFs on the computer without the right applications, so it's giving us a headache thinking of the work that goes into each of these graffiti-turned-GIFs by an artist named INSA. Especially the one you see above, because the...

Analyst Believes 2015 Could Be The Year Of Samsung

samsung logo 5We’re towards the end of January 2015 but it already looks like Apple has had a pretty good start to the year, having announced that they managed to sell a whopping 74.5 million iPhones in the previous quarter, breaking some records in the process. The Cupertino company has also managed to nab a 33% market share in South Korea and according to reports, is expected to gain on Samsung in terms of sales.

Despite all of that, an analyst from Jefferies & Co. still seems to believe that 2015 could be the year of Samsung. The analyst points at some of Samsung’s development such as flexible OLED displays and 14nm chipsets as some of the reasons as to why Samsung could be expected to have a good 2015.

The analyst argues that Samsung’s potential shift to metal casings for their high-end and mid-rangers will be what gives them the edge over the competition, especially from the likes of Xiaomi who has been nipping on their heels. He/she also claims that if Xiaomi were to follow suit, it would require retooling and economies of scale on a grand scope in which they might need a while before they achieve that.

Samsung is expected to launch the Galaxy S6 in the coming months where it is expected to feature a brand new design. Samsung is also said to be approaching the Galaxy S6 from a new direction that will hopefully see sales rejuvenated, but what do you guys think? Does Samsung have what it takes to make 2015 theirs?

Want to spy on your wife? Change your grades? Hire a hacker!

One recent post on Hacker's List, a site dedicated to matching up hackers with those who need something hacked, was headed "FB [Facebook] Account Hack for Justice."

"Scumbag guy I met at a bar over the weekend followed me home and assaulted me," it read. "Thankfully the police caught him and he's thinking long and hard about what he did in a county jail. This is apparently not the first time he's done this, but he got off free of charge the last time. I want to hit him where it hurts."

The poster offered between $200-$300 for access to the man's account.

Project Spartan Could Arrive On Windows 7 If There Is Enough Demand

microsoft logoProject Spartan, for those who missed Microsoft’s Windows 10 announcement, will be the default browser when it comes to the Windows 10 platform. New operating system, new browser, we guess we can see where Microsoft is coming from, but what about older builds of Windows, like those on Windows 7?

Can Windows 7 users expect to get Project Spartan on their computers as well? The semi-good news is that Microsoft has not ruled out the possibility. According to the IE Dev Chat Twitter account, this is something Microsoft is keeping an eye on and if there is enough demand from Windows 7 users, bringing Project Spartan onto Windows 7 is a possibility. “Spartan is currently targeted at Win10. We’re focused on getting ppl upgraded (free) but will watch Win7 demand.”

However Microsoft stated that the goal is to upgrade as many users to Windows 10 as possible, and given that the first year of Windows 10 will be a free upgrade, Microsoft will be banking on that to get as many converts as possible. As it stands Windows 7 is still the dominant Windows operating system, despite the fact that Windows 8/8.1 was meant to be its successor.

Mainstream support for the platform has since come to an end with Microsoft no longer selling it to OEMs, so it will be interesting to see that once Windows 10 has been released if there will be enough demand for Microsoft to warrant bringing Project Spartan onto Windows 7, but what do you guys think? Or are you planning to upgrade to Windows 10 already?

Deleted Far Cry 4 Copies Were Bought With Stolen Credit Cards, Ubisoft Confirms

farcry4Some of you might have heard that Ubisoft had begun to delete digital copies of Far Cry 4 from some of the Uplay accounts of their customers. It seems that the affected copies were ones bought via resellers such G2Play and G2A, although it wasn’t clear at that time as to why Ubisoft might have an issue with them.

However Ubisoft has since come forward with a statement that basically revealed that the reason the games were deleted was because the original keys were bought via fraudulent means, such as stolen credit cards, and were then resold to gamers who thought that these keys were legit.

According to Ubisoft’s statement, “We regularly work with our authorized resellers to identify and deactivate fraudulently obtained and resold keys. In this case, we confirmed activation keys were recently purchased from EA’s Origin store using fraudulent credit card information and then resold online.” In fact it seems that EA was the one who informed Ubisoft about the issue.

At least one of the retailers, G2A, has already released their own statement and has offered to look into the issue and to offer compensation to gamers who have been affected by this. That being said we guess this should serve as a lesson to all and that perhaps purchasing games from official retailers or directly from the developer/publisher would be a safer way to go about it in the future.
