12 Years Of Second life
It has been around for so long that I have been on it at 5 different times, for some months at a time. Back when it launched it was truly mind bending and on the edge.

Which brought it too much attention that turned into hype that raised the expectations to a level Linden Labs was never going to be able to reach even a 10% of. Worse was that as much as Linden Labs managed to build something unique and revolutionary in terms of having high-concept principles. They never found a way to be able to update the graphics every year or even every 3 years. In 12 years it has only really seen 3 noticeable graphical boosts I could perceive as relevant. And even in the top end usage of Second Life in 2015. Second Life still looks like a first wave Xbox 360/ PS3 game. Something ported up from the Original Xbox/ PS2 or the gamecube.

Cryptosteel: The Ultimate Cold Storage Bitcoin Wallet
There is no better way to keep a Bitcoin wallet private key safe from hacking of any kind than to have it offline and in physical form.  But it is even better if you can also have it safe from getting destroyed by accident. The very best if you can also be sure you can hide it anywhere without worry it will wear down no matter what. And that is what Cryptosteel is all about. How does that work is self-explanatory just by looking at it. And from the first time I looked at it, I liked it.

Early in the year I mentioned about Amazon purchase of a whole complex of warehouses in Mexico City. This week they finally launched. But so far I find it a disappointment. Almost like the one from Overstock International. As everything is a little more expensive than buying in eBay or MercadoLibre right now. Only good news so far is for those with a Kindle Reader as now there will be official support for those. But given it is early days and how hard MercadoLibre has pushed to improve their version of Paypal and their offering for shipping that is truly a game changer here in Mexico. They must do be worried about Amazon. Rakuten is also rumored to start an international expansion but considering what happened with Overstock. I think Amazon do has the chance to lead and win as it is truly localized. With only MercadoLibre and eBay standing in its way.

GRRL SCOUTS
Neat! very cool Neo-Retro short. Well, now I know how it would had looked as a TV show. And I would certainly had watched it as I do got the GRRL SCOUTS TPB's. Funny thing is that if it had been produced for real, is more than likely it would had only been produced in Canada. Considering that is where Big Wolf On Campus and Todd & The Book Of Pure Evil were made.

Fascinating. I only remember seeing one of these at a sears or another department store.  Even then I thought it was such an odd idea and the worst was that they were very expensive here. If I remember things correctly they were more expensive than buying a dvd player & a psone.

I am actually surprised that Wii U will survive to see 2016.  The idea of a Nintendo New Console bridging mobile and console gaming is actually great but can only really be done if they were to take a PC-like approach to it. lets say a specially made for Nintendo Atom x7 chip variant with a new Nvidia ION-like  GPU on the handheld.  X1/PS4 alike AMD console hardware rehash.  That way they do can have the exact same games on both devices and then just optimize them to scale up and scale down.  Nintendo would then be able to copy and piggyback on the ideas of Steam and Nvidia without much effort and catch up to X1 and PS4 and even leave the door open to release their own PC-offerings if they were to want it. But, since that would make too much sense. That is probably not what Nintendo would do.

Answer is in History. When Microsoft introduced Original Xbox backwards compatibility in the Xbox 360, it completely killed it. In the case of the Xbox 360, Microsoft will not pull support completely. But I can bet Xbox 360 Hardware Availability ends this year given that as far as I know Microsoft has already stopped making it early this year. All new games coming to it are either ports or indie games. In a sense, the Xbox 360 end of the line is 2015.  That is not to say people will stop buying it since it now so cheap to game on it.

Blackberry will release a Smartphone that is completely Dell Venue Pro styled almost 5 years after the original DVP was released? WHY?  Specially weird considering that BB10 digital keyboard is actually very good. Why not just give it actually high-end hardware and be done with it?

Overall, Sony had a good keynote, but it just fell short of the one from Xbox. Umm, and It may be just me, but The Last Guardian preview looked way off for me when it came to the characters. The upcoming games that really look incredible are Uncharted 4, FF VII R, R&C, Star Wars Battlefront, Mirror Edge Catalyst, MGS:Phantom Pain, Arkham Knight and Hitman. Only two of those are PS4 exclusive.

Xbox One E3 2015 Keynote
Microsoft really brought it this year. Xbox 360 Backwards Compatibility was probably the most important announcement. The reason being that it pretty much confirms that the Xbox 360 hardware availability ends with 2015. And would not be surprised if the only releases for it are port-downs.

In my case I still like E-mail. And do agree that it could easily be the first thing to turn 100 years old that had come out from the Internet. I do must warn that the article contains lots of glitch gifs. Don't mind them, but some people will find them irritating.

Devil's Third Second Look
If instead of Duke Nukem Forever they had decided to pull off a Max Payne 3 and reimagine the character without rebooting it. And at the same time they had gave the game to Tomonobu Itagaki to do. I think it would had looked like Devil's Third. Sure, it does looks like a first wave Xbox 360 game. But lets remember it was ported over to the Wii U instead of the Xbox 360/PS3 where it was supposed to land on like 3 years ago. I do still think it looks intriguing and fun to play.

There are 3 areas where CGI simulation software technology has not advanced enough to make Video Game Characters look human enough for them to be able to leave the Uncanny Valley. These relate to Hair, Eyes and Skin. But new tech advancements are making progress in all 3. Here is the one relating to Skin. I think there could be a Video Game Character that completely conquers over the Uncanny Valley hurdle by 2020. Even if only on a Top End PC.

Yahoo Pipes Shuts Down
It was already more than half-dead as some apps I used or made with Yahoo Pipes stopped working like a year ago. Still, sad to see it go instead of it being revamped as something else.  Yahoo Pipes was great. I remember when it was possible to use it along with Popfly to make your own Widgets quite easily.

I think there really are only 3 players that can make a Global Game Streaming Platform work in the long run and those are Microsoft, Google and Amazon. The reason being you need to have Smart Data Centers all around the world , Cloud Computing Proficiency and tons of money.

That said, there is no reason why Gamefly could not make a USA-only Game Streaming Service work. It is just that it is unlikely it can fund the development of it while it takes off. Unless it got acquired by lets say Comcast, Verizon or AT&T.

The problem with Path is that it was mostly a feature and not enough of a product.  It got killed by the G+ Circle, G+ Private Communities,  Facebook Groups and by apps like WeChat and Whatsapp also adding features that made the need of having a Path account an afterthought.

I think it is very likely Netflix will go with pre-roll Ads. They can be made almost impossible to skip and that is why premium or popular content in YouTube always has pre-roll ads. The reason why I think they waited so long to introduce them is because they didn't had enough stuff to advertise.  Because it would be obvious that the only way they can introduce them without causing a riot is if they start being used to advertise Netflix exclusive content and if it is only 1 Ad for episode or movie. I don't doubt that they also feel it is a step that they need to give in order to keep the subscription price at $9.99 in the USA or $99,99 MXN here in Mexico.

Kung Fury
Just the kind of stylized over the top action comedy short movie fueled by 80's pop-culture references and nostalgia perfectly targeted for a 2015's Internet Engaged Audience. It is fun and it is funny. But it will be a lot more fun and funny if you were actually a child or teen of the 80's.  Also commendable: Worldwide release on YouTube with subtitles support in 9 languages.

GTA V Max Settings + OpenIV + VisualV +  SweetFX/Reshade
Looks stunning. Just wish the video was in 4K and that the SweetFX mode was Natural Light and not Bright Light. But needless to say that it is evident that GTA VI on PS4/X1 will probably look like this and the only upgrade not possible via mods will be the characters. Unless hackers and modders find a way around that this time around.

On Konami Self-Destruction
The fact that Konami flagged the video only validates it. No doubt Hideo Kojima games are expensive given how unique they are compared to anything else and the fact that a new graphics engine has to be developed each time he does a MGS. It is probable that the only studios where Kojima could be able to do his games his way would be Rockstar Games and Bethesda. Both Konami and Capcom are just no longer willing to do unique stuff. Japan seems to have completely lost their edge.

Very good new feature in Ello. Federating comments from reshares to source post. Great way to increase engagement and something I had not seen done before. Wish G+ would add that feature too. Along with post view counters.

Verizon Is Buying AOL For $4.4B USD
Woah, that is a huge deal. But I still wish it had been Yahoo the one absorbing AOL. As I had said before, it would had been the only way for Yahoo to do an actual YouTube and AdSense competitor. With Verizon now as owner of AOL. The only thing certain is that they will quickly integrate what was left of AOL internet access business into Verizon and that they gain direct access to those customers. Other than that? They could very well create an AOL On video channel for FIOS TV and push AOL On to all Verizon customers. I mean, those are the logical moves to do first. #AOL   #Verizon

Microsoft Build 2015 Keynote Day 1
I watched it all on the actual day, but I had been watching other sessions after it and man if this Microsoft Build was not just exciting but thought provoking. Really High Impact stuff.

A perfect case of where a niche is so small where one single startup wins it all. Whisper completely cannibalized Secret. It is also a good example on where a startup having too much funding  for what it is kills the startup.

12 Years Of Second life
It has been around for so long that I have been on it at 5 different times, for some months at a time. Back when it launched it was truly mind bending and on the edge.

Which brought it too much attention that turned into hype that raised the expectations to a level Linden Labs was never going to be able to reach even a 10% of. Worse was that as much as Linden Labs managed to build something unique and revolutionary in terms of having high-concept principles. They never found a way to be able to update the graphics every year or even every 3 years. In 12 years it has only really seen 3 noticeable graphical boosts I could perceive as relevant. And even in the top end usage of Second Life in 2015. Second Life still looks like a first wave Xbox 360/ PS3 game. Something ported up from the Original Xbox/ PS2 or the gamecube.

But for most people it still looks just like as a last wave Original Xbox game at best. Which is a problem because it is like being trapped in a in hazy dream of past experiences. Maybe SL will be able to take a leap as supposedly rumored for the past 2 years. And while unlikely, I hope it does, as some of the most dream-like and nightmare-like stuff I have ever seen online has been stuff that has happened in Second Life and places that have existed in it.___

GTA 5 PC - Open World
Great combination of footage and timelapses.  The only thing that could had made it even better is if it had been in 4K. Other than that? It is still excellent at 1440p.

Very cool, but it will still take years to have a facility that can live up to this trailer aspirations. Any facility where you can go to live out VR games will cost millions of dollars each unless they only can offer 1 scenario a week or a month or the exact same scenario done in different ways which would be its downfall.

I remember when I first saw the process like 5 years ago. And now Sweden has no trash and they even import trash to keep it going as it is profitable.

Diaspora 0.5.0.0
This release gives me the impression of indeed being a big release. Certainly inspires confidence they are not slowing down. And they should not slow down as they are still not close enough to be able to surpass the hurdle of Diaspora being dependent of Federation.  But for one I am glad the project is still alive and kicking. Certainly better than GNUsocial. But I still think that a more evolved Twister would beat both. But for now. Diaspora still wins.

Hulu+ now has an insane amount of content. It is truly remarkable. That said. Nothing from the upcoming Hulu Originals Programming catches my curiosity other than Freddy Wong's RocketJump show. Hopefully they also renew Deadbeat for a 3rd season.

Tesla Powerwall  Updated
Very impressive. for $5000 USD you then can power up a home for 2-3 people 100% on Solar. The obvious unanswered questions that come to my mind would be:
1.- How long it takes for it to start saving money versus the grid?
2.- How long does a powerwall lasts?  They last ten years
3.- How do they are going to be recycled and processed once they need to be changed?
4.- What advances have been done in the recycling process for tesla battery packs and how these differ from the norm?
Nonetheless still very impressive and a step in the right direction.

Thanks to +Ahmad Aoun from www.CryptoThrift.com for supporting THE G+ #Bitcoin  Community in April. And for a third time overall. Great guy and great site.

Earn Money By Shopping With Bitcoin Thanks To The https://CryptoThrift.com Update

One unfortunate fact in the cryptocurrency market is that people from all around the world have most probably encountered some trouble when it came down to buying or selling something on the Internet with the help of #Bitcoin, or any other altcoin. Well, a Bitcoin market known by the name of https://CryptoThrift.com has changed this by allowing thousands of people to go ahead and trade whatever they want on the Internet while buying and selling things with the help of their cryptocurrencies.

An interesting development has just happened and sources point out that all of those who have used the service until now are in for surprise, as the marketplace is hard at work introducing a couple of more features. Since it has been launched over in 2013, #CryptoThrift has served more than 26,000 users, while not having any major update, which is why the system needs an overhaul at this moment in time, in an effort to ensure that other marketplaces don’t get close enough to be considered as competition, but also to make sure that people who hold cryptocurrencies find it easy to trade their objects.

With these factors in mind, the marketplace has now introduced a one-click to relist feature, but also a Bitcoin affiliate program. The feature will not only make it easier for those who are interested, to relist their products, but this will also have an important role in increasing the sales chances of a particular product, by making the whole process of relisting something easier for all of its users.

Although this is an interesting addition that is bound to have a lot of success, the cream of the crop is actually the world-class Bitcoin affiliate program that has been introduced. To put things better into perspective, those who would like to support CryptoThrift by recommending the site to others, or who are directly responsible for one or more sales will be rewarded by the team. However, this affiliate program is unlike others, thanks to the incredible rewards that the site is offering for a limited period of time.

With this in mind, users who refer someone new can earn as much as one Bitcoin for their effort, but also continuously earn 1% of the purchases made by the users which have been referred during their first 90 days on the site.

While the platform was hit by a hack last year, CryptoThrift is now also proud to announce that they have made a couple of security improvements which strive to ensure that no other hacks will take place in the future, thus promising absolute privacy and security to their users.

Based on everything that has been outlined so far, what do you personally think about the improvements brought over to CryptoThrift? Have you ever tried out the marketplace? If yes, what did you think about it? Let us know your thoughts in the
comment section below.
