Microsoft is bringing Xbox 360 games to the Xbox One

Microsoft is bringing old Xbox 360 games to the Xbox One. Xbox chief Phil Spencer revealed the huge news during an E3 keynote today. Microsoft is planning to bring the backwards compatibility "natively" to the Xbox One with more than 100 tiles arriving this holiday. Xbox One preview members can play a selection of titles today, and Microsoft isn't charging gamers to play titles they already own. Previously purchased Xbox 360 titles will show up automatically, and you'll be able to take advantage of broadcasting, screenshots, and game DVR features.

Twitter CFO’s Ascent Creates New Power Center

In April, while preparing for what would be a disappointing earnings report, Twitter Inc.’s Anthony Noto was startled by an email from his boss, who was traveling in Europe. The email from Chief Executive Dick Costolo said Mr. Noto would immediately be taking charge of marketing, an area the social-media company had long overlooked. It was an unusual assignment for a finance chief, but for Mr. Costolo’s top lieutenant it was par for...

Why Apple Should Kill Off the Mac

There are very few business strategies more risky, and with a lower potential pay-back, than abandoning well-established brand equity.  Despite all its new products, Apple is still known as a producer of high-end personal computers.  The name and reputation of Apple help sell all these new products, and at premium prices.  Until and unless the personal computer becomes a drag on sales, damages the company's reputation, and deprives it of needed cash to develop its other, more profitable innovations, it remains the necessary centerpiece of the business.  The odds of their maintaining their brand without the pc business—until and unless the personal computer becomes truly obsolete—are rather small; one doesn't just develop a brand out of thin air, or transfer it from one product to another, very different one, without investing considerable time, money, and taking a huge risk.  The history of business is full of companies which tried to reinvent themselves, and failed miserably.

Sex, lies and debt potentially exposed by U.S. data hack

Microsoft’s 10 most important E3 2015 announcements

Microsoft managed an unusually smooth keynote at E3 2015. It adroitly stayed away from less popular topics like Xbox apps and the Kinect (which was totally absent) and included crowd-pleasing announcements like the option to play Xbox 360 games on the Xbox One. It's nearing the release of its flagship exclusive Halo 5: Guardians , which is coming out later this year. And the rest of its slate, including Rise of the Tomb Raider and a new Gears of War , doesn't look half bad either.

After Three Years In Development, Mobli Unveils Real-Time Image Search Engine EyeIn

Mobli , the photo- and video-based social network, launched in 2010, but it has just uncovered its flagship product, a real-time image search engine called EyeIn . Now available on the web and as a mobile app, EyeIn’s algorithms filter out content like selfies to return the most relevant results to users almost as soon as they are posted on social networks.

Regulating the sharing economy: How Uber et al will soon face new rules

It is becoming clear that sharing economy companies are not necessarily going to self-regulate and will increasingly be subject to external regulation now that they are hitting scale. Let’s just hope that the cycle does not repeat into yet another self-profligating bureaucracy that simply recreates all of the same problems companies like Uber were built to address.

The latest in the Halo franchise appears to have an even greater focus on cinematic moments, with the character falling off ledges, unleashing flashy attacks, and being grabbed by a big bad enemy without triggering a discrete cut-scene.

Microsoft is also partnering with Valve for VR on Windows 10

It seems like Microsoft's approach to virtual reality will mimic its approach to the PC world: Support just about every piece of hardware. The company just revealed that it's partnering with Valve VR to "make Windows 10 the best platform for VR." Valve is also partnering with HTC for the Vive headset , which impressed us earlier this year. This news comes on top of last week's surprising announcement that Microsoft is teaming up with Oculus , a deal that will see Oculus bundle in the Xbox One controller with its headset. Oculus VR users will also be able to stream Xbox One games to their headsets (though not in VR mode), which is something we expect Microsoft to offer to Valve VR hardware as well. Unfortunately, we still haven't heard anything about the Xbox One supporting VR headsets directly, but we're still hoping for some sort of surprise announcement.

China’s Top Taxi App Firm Is Raising $1.5 Billion To Battle Uber

Before coming together, Kuaidi and Didi both raised significant war chests in the past to finance massive incentives for drivers and price cuts for passengers against each other. Both companies were estimated to have sunk hundreds of millions into this war of attrition which ultimately brought them together. This time around, the merged company could use its new capital — once it arrives — to execute a similar tactic against Uber, but it is almost certainly also looking to next advent in China’s taxi app market: the rise of peer-to-peer (P2P) rides.

Google Is Testing Its Internet Balloons in a Huge Freezer | WIRED

But the company isn’t interested in covering Rhode Island. It’s interested in covering the parts of Africa, Latin America, and Southeast Asia that lack Internet access. About two-thirds of the world’s population is not online, and Google, like Facebook, wants to change that. If more people are online, more people will use Google. The value of this phenomenon shouldn’t be underestimated. Google is going to extreme lengths in its effort to extend the reach of the net. It’s building balloons and cranes. It’s trying to predict the weather. And it’s camping out in an Air Force freezer, at sub-zero temperatures.

You can give photos to friends and grab all of the photos you didn’t take privately, without having to go scouring for pictures you’re tagged in. You can even organize and search photos based on who’s tagged in them with you for simple photo albums. You can download Moments in the iOS App Store or Google Play Store for free.

How Krash And Other Startups Are Taking Coworking Home

The Fremont-Smiths refer to the Krash houses variously as "urban lodges," "particle accelerators for people," and "clubhouses for entrepreneurs." Most people get a roommate, and almost everything is communal. ("You become very tribal when you’re sharing a bathroom and kitchen with people," Phil says. "Barriers are broken down fast.") Krashers, as they’re called, pay from $1,500 to $2,200 a month depending on the city and the time of year, which covers rent, linens, toiletries, and a fully stocked kitchen. They range in age from their twenties to sixties. They are startup founders, visiting professors, and even NASA scientists. Some already run established businesses, while others arrive with merely an idea. The typical stay is three to six months, but Krashers who want to stay longer can apply for "K2" status, which enables them to hop from Krash to Krash indefinitely.

IBM prepares Spark for machine learning

“Machine learning is a very powerful technique of extracting the essence of value from data,” Horowitz said. Machine learning algorithms are especially good at tasks such as automated classification and helping devices sense their surroundings with greater sophistication, he said. Such tasks were previously considered to be too compute-intensive to be carried out on a single server. Spark can coordinate multiple computers to work in tandem.

Now you can stream Xbox One games to Windows 10 computers

You'll also need to have the same Xbox Live account set up on both the console and PC, as well as a Gold subscription, if you want to hop into a multiplayer game or use voice chat. And speaking of multiplayer, if you want to run a local multiplayer game but don't want to deal with a split screen, Game Streaming will allow one person to play on the console while the other plays on the PC. But don't bother asking for keyboard/mouse compatibility, Microsoft has also announced it won't be coming -- you'll need a wired USB controller on the PC. [Thanks, Nate aka Ghostofmumbles ]

Razer acquires Ouya (Android game system startup) - Liliputing

no I’d advise anybody to get a ps4 over shield these days , shield has barely any exclusive games which are not ports of old console games from ps2/xbox era , for a little more money you can play games of current gen era. In terms of ouya , It’s 3 x cheaper than shield and basically does everything you would really want as a casual device , if you are serious about games then why would you even consider an android box in the first place? while I like the direction of NVidia and tegrazone , the tegrazone store and lack of new games just goes to show that it would be an investment which you will just sit around on whilst devs decide to make anything decent and exclusive for android which looking at the play store right now I would say it could be a long while.

Minecraft is coming to HoloLens, and it turns you into a god of blocks

Minecraft is coming to the Windows HoloLens augmented reality device (and competing take to the Oculus Rift , Sony’s Project Morpheus , and Valve’s virtual reality headsets), which is launching later this year. The publisher showed off how the game will work during its Electronic Entertainment Expo media briefing this morning. Minecraft on Microsoft’s augmented-reality device is compatible with the PC version, and you can play it just like normal. That means the HoloLens will create a video window, and you can play the game through with a controller. But it doesn’t stop with that. HoloLens also enables you to re-create your virtual world on a surface like a table. This enables the player to look down over the whole world from a god-like position.
