Google is constructing a list of banned words for its Chinese release

I wanted to start this news with my typical O tempora o mores, but… seeing as things are going worldwide, perhaps this news is not as horrible as it would be some time ago. Much has been said about the Google-China conflict; communist country wanted the american company to deliver them a properly censored browser, while Google did not. Past tense is right in place, too; as it seems, Google has given in to temptation and is now creating a censored wersion of its browser specifically for China. Censorship will ban citizens of China from reading about anything that their government does ...

UE once again wants to standardise chargers

European Union plans on reducing the number of electronic waste produced – better late than never, since the business is estimated to produce 51 tons of electronic trash per year. One of the steps that the Union wants to take in order to reach this goal is standardising smartphone’s chargers. UE wants all the smartphones to use the USB-C standard. There is a long way for this to happen, though; many lesser models are still using the microUSB plug-in, while Apple is adamant about keeping to its Lightning plug-in. EU wants to combat this by a mix of new laws and, if needed, ...

Life is Strange 2 has its first teaser trailer!

Woohoo! LiS is really getting a sequel! Adventure game from 2015 (though an interactive story is perhaps a more fitting name), Life is Strange is an adult, well-crafted game that impressed the players with a story about a complicated life of a teenage girl with superpowers – and it is much better than it sounds, trust me. The multi-layered story has left us wanting more, and although both the Before the Storm expansion as well as a standalone Adventures of Captain Spirit were good, the second main course is still before us.Game’s teaser trailer can be watched here, ...
