Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War begins their open Beta on October 8th. The first two days are for Playstation Plus members who have pre-ordered Cold War. In the following two days, the beta is open to all Playstation users regardless of pre-orders. The following weekend beginning October 15th, the cross-platform beta begins for those who have pre-ordered Cold War on Xbox or PC. For this entire second weekend, PS4 players are able to play for free. Let’s go over what changes were made from the alpha into the beta.
A new map named “Cartel” has been added into the mix. It’s available to play in both combined arms mode, as well as multiplayer. This map takes place in Nicaragua and is said to have some ties to Cold War’s Main villain, Perseus. It features rideable motorcycles, a large airplane hanger, and varying levels of terrain. The map also
In a blog post highlighting how advances in its processors have helped gamers, Intel announced that its next-generation desktop processor will be coming in early 2021. The 11th-gen processor is also known by its Rocket Lake code name, and will include some of the key features that Intel introduced in its 11th-gen laptop Tiger Lake processors, such as support for the faster PCIe 4.0 specification, and Wi-Fi 6 for wireless connectivity.
“I’m also happy to confirm that the next generation 11th-gen Intel Core desktop processors (code-named “Rocket Lake”) is coming in the first quarter of 2021 and will provide support for PCIe 4.0,” Intel vice president and general manager of the VR, gaming, and e-sports group John Bonini wrote in a blog post on Medium, noting that “gaming is in Intel’s DNA.”
The company’s announcement that Rocket Lake will make its way to gaming desktops comes in the middle of
When you shop at a Schnucks grocery store, you may share the aisle with Tally the shelf-scanning robot. Made by Simbe Robotics, Tally is autonomous and scans shelves for inventory to make restocking easier. Schnucks is expanding its use of the robot to 62 locations, which will allow Tally to scan more than 4.2 million products every day.
“The real-time data Tally collects helps retailers like Schnucks ensure shelves are stocked, prices are correct, and the products customers are looking for are where they expect them to be. Amid the coronavirus pandemic, Tally has been crucial to Schnucks’ success. Tally has been able to keep track of inventory and replenishment, while simultaneously minimizing the amount of time workers need to spend in the aisles, keeping customers happy and workers safe,” Brad Bogolea, co-founder and CEO of Simbe Robotics, said.
WASHINGTON — The U.S. Army’s enterprise information systems office expects to release requests for proposals for several highly lucrative contracts in the next few months, a top official has announced.
At an AFCEA Belvoir event last week, Ross Guckert, program executive officer at Program Executive Office Enterprise Information Systems, laid out the office’s top four highest value contracts for the upcoming quarter, including multi-award contract for IT services valued up to $10 billion.
That contract, called Information Technology Enterprise Solutions-4 Hardware, has a base period of five years with five one-year options. According to industry day slides from July, the office plans for 17 awardees. A draft RFP will be released in the first quarter of fiscal 2021, which started Oct. 1. The final RFP is slated for release in the second quarter of fiscal 2021.
ITES-4H will provide the Army with IT services such as client, servers, storage and
Turkey is developing an increasing variety of lethal armed drones that range from large high-flying bomb-laden ones to very small, low-flying ones that can form deadly swarms.
In recent years, Turkey has developed an impressive local drone industry from the ground up. Armed Turkish-built Bayraktar TB2 and Anka-S drones have already proven themselves in combat in operations in Syria, Iraq, and even as far afield as Libya.
Ankara is presently building a variety of bigger and smaller drones that will fulfill a multitude of different roles for the Turkish military.
Although Apple held a September virtual event (here’s everything Apple announced), those expecting iPhones were disappointed — the event focused on the new Apple Watch 6, Apple Watch SE and iPads instead. The announcement date for the iPhone 12, 12 Pro, 12 Max and possible 12 Pro Max (or the iPhone 12 Mini?) remains up in the air. Note that Apple has not confirmed the names of the phones, but we’ll go with those for now. Our best guess, however, as to when Apple will announce the phones is either Oct. 13 or 14.
Before we explain why, note that Apple has not released any official information and didn’t respond to a request for comment. What we do know, however, is that the iPhone was definitely delayed “a few weeks” from
For the first six months of the pandemic, the US lagged behind dozens of other countries in rolling out apps to alert citizens when they’ve come in contact with someone who has tested positive for Covid-19. But states are finally rolling out a wave of apps based on open-source software that has made their proliferation faster and cheaper.
Now people just need to download them.
The most recent additions to the canon are New York and New Jersey, which each launched apps on Oct. 1. By the next day, iPhone and Android users had installed the New York app about 250,000 times.
Since August, seven other US states and Guam have launched exposure notification apps. Four of
Up until a few months ago, it was an all familiar path. Israeli founders team up to create a technology that solves an existing problem in a big market, and immediately look to expand to either New-York or Silicon Valley in the search for US funding, customers and talent so they can build a global business. This is a model that’s been proven time and time again, with much success. In fact, it’s been so successful that Israeli tech has changed its nickname from Startup Nation to Scale-Up Nation. Then, Covid-19 hit and everything changed.
Suddenly, these US tech hubs aren’t quite as attractive. NYC suffered a major economic hit as many fled
LG is expected to announce the world’s first rollable TV next month, ahead of the rollable smartphone. According to media reports that are coming from Korea, it will happen in October, but we don’t know when exactly. All we know is that late October is mentioned.

This TV will allegedly be called the LG Signature OLED RX, and it will feature a 65-inch display. That display will rise from a box, and you will be able to get it to roll back inside.
LG actually showed off this technology at CES (Consumer Electronics Show) last year. At that point, it was not even close to launching, but LG seems to be ready to release it now.
The LG Signature OLED RX TV will allegedly be priced at over 100 million won. That translates to
Another round of fresh additions to Game Pass PC for the month of October are on, and while we’ll be looking longingly at our console friends playing Doom Eternal before us, there’s plenty of good stuff to make up the difference, from one of the biggest simulation racing games out there to a couple of day one debuts for promising indie games.
Drake Hollow hits Game Pass PC on October 1. This is an aesthetically lovely co-op survival game that blends building with regular combat as you defend your base, similar to Fortnite’s original Save the World mode. In our gameplay preview, Ian found it pretty promising – and as part of your Game Pass subscription, there’s no barrier to digging in.
On October 8, Forza Motorsport 7 hits Game Pass PC (as well as console). The racer originally launched in 2017, and features 700 cars including the “largest collection
