Fortnite Season 10 launched to much fanfare earlier this month, and it brought with it a number of changes to the island and the game mechanics. Perhaps the biggest change, however, was the addition of the B.R.U.T.E. mech, which is ideally controlled by two players. Players have complained profusely about the mechs, which many say are too overpowered with their onboard shotgun, missile launcher and shields. Not only that, the mechs can traverse the landscape quickly and stomp opponents with reckless abandon. Now, Fortnite gaming legend Ninja is giving his two cents about the B.R.U.T.E. mechs, and his advice boils down to “Suck it up, buttercup.” While some of the top players... Read more...
Tyler Blevins, best known by many as "Ninja," announced on Twitter today that he has notched 1 million active subscribers on Mixer, his new streaming platform of choice. The incredible subscriber milestone comes just five days after he abandoned Twitch, where he had become a streaming sensation and rose to gaming fame.

Microsoft appears ready to heavily push its streaming platform Mixer and to invest some big money into the platform in the process. The big coup that Microsoft has pulled off is luring away Twitch's biggest star, Tyler "Ninja" Blevins. Ninja announced his big move on Twitter last week stating that he would be switching live streams exclusively to Mixer. Ninja boasted 15 million followers on Twitch, which was more than double the number of people that the next closer streamer on Twitch amassed. Blevins at one point had 100,000 paying subscribers to his Twitch streams and raked in millions of dollars per year on the platform. Landing Ninja as an exclusive streamer on the platform is a big deal... Read more...
If you've ever questioned your financial worth or how much you're making at your current job, you might want to stop reading at this point. A new report is detailing just how much the world's top streamers can earn for a few hours of streaming, and it is a staggering amount.  The report from the Wall Street Journal claims that some of the top game publishers like Electronic Arts, Activision Blizzard and Take-Two are paying streamers upwards of $50,000 to stream. And no, we're not talking about $50,000 for a week's or even day's worth or work. Instead, these companies are paying $50,000 per hour.

For better or worse, the late Chris Farley from Saturday Night Live fame is still the great white ninja foretold by ancient legend (and Hollywood), and not Steve Jobs, the Apple CEO who reportedly said he'll never again return to Japan after airport officials wouldn't let him take ninja throwing starts aboard his private jet. That's according to a Japanese tabloid called SPA! Magazine, which reported the incident in its latest issue and ended up re-reported by Bloomberg. As the story goes, Jobs was going through a security check at Kansai International Airport when a scan picked up ninja stars he had purchased in Japan while on a family vacation. Jobs tried to reason with officials that it wouldn't... Read more...

The short answer is: yes, Microsoft is updating/changing software in a stealthy fashion.  Microsoft's own Nate Clinton has acknowledged that the Redmond juggernaut is indeed updating computers regardless of the preferences set by the user in the 'automatic updates' settings menu.According to Nate, here's what's happening:“So what is happening here?  Windows Update is a service that primarily delivers updates to Windows.

You've got your CEO, CFO, Division Managers and so forth. CIO came with the importance of electronic communications and the internet. But now we add another title to the alphabet soup of corporate management: CSO, or Chief Security Officer.

Although the CIO still has sign-off on security decisions in 30 per cent of organisations, 12 per cent of respondents said they now have a CSO who assumes that responsibility. This is up from seven per cent last year. Denis McCauley, director... Read more...

Shuttle XPC SD31P SFF system review @ Xtreme Resources: "After the release of new CPUs and technologies, every company had to evolve their products and refresh their line-up. Shuttle was no exception too, although perhaps they had the hardest of time making the move, since they had to fit every new technology (ranging from Dual Core CPU support to SATA-II support) into a tiny box. So the masterful engineers of Shuttle designed the SD31P; an XPC claiming to be a pocket-size supercomputer, versatile and powerful enough to fit any house and office. Since Shuttle was nice enough to provide us with a review sample of the SD31P, we can see up close what this baby can do." asetek VapoChill... Read more...
