The specific way it unfolds invites a lot of “What’s going on, and what does it mean?” conjecture from the audience. It’s more fun to watch than to… Continue reading…

When Atsushi Hashimoto was a kid, he loved role-playing games. He’d settle in front of the television for hours, controller in hand, lost in quests full of magical spells and powerful evils. He was particularly enamored with the works of Squaresoft, now known as Square Enix, the developer behind 16-bit classics like Final Fantasy and Chrono Trigger. As he grew older, classic-style Japanese RPGs largely went out of fashion, replaced by a combination of big-budget action games and smaller mobile titles. But Hashimoto never forgot about the games that helped define his relationship with the medium. In 2014 he had the chance to bring them back as the director at Square Enix’s Tokyo RPG Factory studio.

Last year, under Hashimoto’s guidance… Continue reading…

Microsoft first revealed its plans to bring Android and iPhone phones closer to Windows 10 earlier this year, and now the company is letting public testers play with the new features. In a new Windows 10 preview (build 16251) released today, Android users will be able to test a new “Microsoft Apps” application that links a phone to a PC. Microsoft hasn’t revealed when iPhone users will be able to test similar functionality, so it’s Android only for now. 

Windows 10’s latest preview links an Android phone to a PC

The link will enable new cross-device features, including the ability to share a link from a mobile directly to a Windows 10 PC. It’s the first of many features Microsoft is planning to closely align Android and iOS to Windows 10 … Continue reading…

My new phone. The Samsung S8 in orchid something.

There was that feeling that my [amazon_textlink asin=’B01LWWCPZG’ text=’Samsung S6 Edge Plus ‘ template=’ProductLink’ store=’cfmmusscean03-20′ marketplace=’US’ link_id=’6b62662a-6502-11e7-9dc6-3b29e18f1443′]would be pried from my cold dead hand, then I saw the [amazon_textlink asin=’B06Y1548ZS’ text=’Samsung S8 Plus ‘ template=’ProductLink’ store=’cfmmusscean03-20′ marketplace=’US’ link_id=’9bfabbed-6502-11e7-884c-1d9831b5adb0′]commercial. It only took one time seeing the Samsung S8 filming a shark to make my eyes wander.  Let me repeat that, a man in a shark cage recording a shark! It filled my little photographer heart with joy. Who wouldn’t want to be filming inside a shark cage? While being swept up in the excitement of a water proof phone, my husband pointed out that 1. When we were in the Bahamas I was nervous about snorkeling. Sharks would make things a lot scarier. 2. It was a shark, they bite. 3. Sharks, bite. He didn’t mention 4. which would be, that based on my past experiences if  a shark cage failed it would be me inside and the shark would bite me and swallow my new phone. 

I wonder if my phone insurance would cover sharks.  

The Samsung S2 survived soooo many toilet dunks! It was going to be my cellphone forever. My Samsung S2 is now our car camera. It might be the best phone I have ever owned. It connects to the house wiflies and becomes a palm sized tablet. 

It turns out that I didn’t have to give up my [amazon_textlink asin=’B014A5SNBI’ text=’Samsung S6 Edge Plus’ template=’ProductLink’ store=’cfmmusscean03-20′ marketplace=’US’ link_id=’aa37902d-6501-11e7-b282-0f5a3254f745′] either.  We were entitled to another line.  I love T-Mobile. Kelsey spent most of her day explaining every option available to us and answered endless questions, even stupid questions, knowledgeably and with kindness. We go to the T-Mobile store in the Mt. Shasta Mall in Redding, CA. She is one of those co-workers that every company wants! Even about importing the home phone number to the S6.

It has been impossible for me to give up the house phone. We rarely use it but it has been our home number for probably 20 years. Giving it up meant the loss of the phones in our home! If you are in the bedroom, your cellphone will always ring in the family room. We found out you can go to [amazon_textlink asin=’B07237Z2XK’ text=’Amazon.com’ template=’ProductLink’ store=’cfmmusscean03-20′ marketplace=’US’ link_id=’8ffc0714-6505-11e7-86fd-9d095d587875′] and buy an interface that allows you to use a cellphone with your house phones. I am keeping my beloved [amazon_textlink asin=’B071PBHS14′ text=’Samsung S6 Edge Plus’ template=’ProductLink’ store=’cfmmusscean03-20′ marketplace=’US’ link_id=’cbb703a0-6505-11e7-aca8-9fa2e9248243′] and connecting it to the house with the [amazon_textlink asin=’B002YWMALY’ text=’Xtreme Technologies Xlink BT Bluetooth Gateway’ template=’ProductLink’ store=’cfmmusscean03-20′ marketplace=’US’ link_id=’f69744fc-6505-11e7-95a6-7dd3c41208d8′].

I hope the Samsung S8 lives up to my expectations and that I am never bitten by a shark. (I know what you are thinking, a shark bite scar would be kind of awesome. It really would. Especially if I was visiting my dear friends at indie gaming studio Primordial Echo which is in AUSTRALIA! Visit Australia AND a shark bite scar my son would be soooo jealous. *insert evil laugh*)

Privacy’s a rarity these days, and your beloved social media sites are largely to blame for that. But there are things you are doing on those sites that are making the situation even worse.

Facebook asks for your life story. Think before you fill out everything. If you acknowledge your mother and your mother posts her maiden name you have given up everything but your social security number.  If a friend plays a game app he or she gives them access to your information. It isn’t as private as you think. Check your settings regularly, Facebook is constantly changing.   R.M.

Before you ever hit “share” again, make sure you’re not posting one of these six things. Read the rest of the story on POPSUGAR  link .
