Despite countless reports, investigations and press conferences over the past several weeks, there is still a shroud of mystery surrounding the Sony Pictures hack. We might never know all of the details, but one well-known, eccentric programmer thinks he knows exactly how the hack was initiated — and it’s much simpler than you might have imagined. More →

Assassin's Creed Movie Release Date

The first Assassin’s Creed movie will hit theaters December 21st, 2016

There has been a long tradition of movies based on video games in Hollywood, but the vast majority of them have been critical flops. Video game stories just don’t transition especially well to the big screen, which explains why Mortal Kombat, Street Fighter, and perhaps most infamously of all, Super Mario Bros. are so hard to watch.

Sony, NBC Universal and Fox employees caught illegally using BitTorrent

Sony, NBC Universal and Fox employees caught illegally using BitTorrent

Considering all of the concerns major music and movie studios have over piracy and file sharing, one would think the studios could at least manage to keep their own employees from stealing content. That is apparently not the case, however. TorrentFreak has a new tool that reveals what a specific IP address has downloaded from BitTorrent, and used it to snoop around a few popular studios. The site found that employees at Fox, Sony and NBC Universal were downloading illegal content from BitTorrent. A Sony employee, for example, downloaded Conan the Barbarian, an album from The Black Keys, and a Beavis and Butthead video. An NBC Universal Employee downloaded HBO’s hit series Game of Thrones, Cowboys and Aliens and a trance album. Fox typically contacts the FBI when a movie has been leaked, but TorrentFreak found an employee downloading a 1080p HD version of the movie Super 8. “By highlighting the above our intention is not to get anyone into trouble, and for that reason we masked out the end of the IP addresses to avoid a witch hunt,” TorrentFreak said. “An IP address is not a person, IP addresses can be shared among many people, and anyone can be behind a keyboard at any given time.” A Google employee was also caught downloading Windows 7, and the Church of God was busted for downloading two popular TV shows.

Time Warner pulls channels from iPad app after network complaints

Time Warner pulls channels from iPad app after network complaints

We’ve just been tipped that Time Warner Cable has begun emailing users of its iPad application, informing them of a looming channel-lineup change. The app in question — TWCable TV App for iPad — was released on March 15th, and allows TWC subscribers to stream live television right to their tablet device. A very neat feature… for customers. It seems as though several major networks are not all that fond of this customer-centric feature. “While most TV network owners agree with us that this is a great convenience for our customers and their viewers, a few networks disagree,” reads the email. “Unfortunately, that means that channels from network groups Discovery Communications, Fox Cable, and Viacom will be removed from your iPad lineup, effective immediately.” Time Warner notes that Animal Planet, Discovery, TLC, FX, National Geographic, BET, CMT, Comedy Central, MTV, Nickelodeon, Spike, and VH1 will no longer be available. In response, TWC has added 17 national and 3 local “replacement channels.”  More →

Angry Birds Rio for Android to launch as Amazon exclusive

Rovio, the developer behind the wildly successful Angry Birds franchise, announced on Monday that its forthcoming Android title Angry Birds Rio for Android will launch exclusively in the Amazon Appstore.
