Sony Cuts Price Of Playstation Now Service By Half

Sony Cuts Price Of PlayStation Now Service By Half

Game streaming is set to become a big deal and as such, more companies are getting on board with it. This is versus back in the day where not many companies were interested in the technology, but now it looks like we can look forward to services from the likes of Microsoft’s xCloud and Google Stadia.

With the rise in competition, it seems that Sony has decided that maybe it might be a good time to try and be more competitive, and as such, the company has announced that they will be dropping the prices of its PlayStation Now subscription service by half. This means that instead of customers paying $19.99 a month, they will only need to pay $9.99.

Sony And Disney Make Up, Spider-man Is Now Back In The Mcu

Sony And Disney Make Up, Spider-Man Is Now Back In The MCU

This was obviously extremely disappointing news for fans, especially with the role that Spider-Man has played in the various Marvel movies he’s appeared in so far. However, it looks like both Sony and Disney have made up since because in a joint announcement, Sony and Disney have revealed that Spider-Man will be swinging his way back into the MCU.

In a statement made by Marvel Studios and President Kevin Feige, “I am thrilled that Spidey’s journey in the MCU will continue, and I and all of us at Marvel Studios are very excited that we get to keep working on it. Spider-Man is a powerful icon and hero whose story crosses all ages and audiences around the globe. He also happens to be the only hero with the superpower to cross cinematic universes, so as Sony continues to develop their own Spidey-verse you never know what surprises the future might hold.”

Sony Shuts The Door On Spider-man Deal With Marvel…for Now

Sony Shuts The Door On Spider-Man Deal With Marvel…For Now

We had hoped that maybe both parties were still negotiating behind closed doors, but according to Sony Pictures chairman and CEO Tony Vinciquerra, that will no longer be happening. The CEO was quoted as saying, “For the moment the door is closed.” Despite that, he insisted that there was no ill will between both Sony and Marvel, although he hinted that the success of the two movies weren’t solely because of Marvel.

According to Vinciquerra, “We had a great run with (Feige) on Spider-Man movies. We tried to see if there’s a way to work it out….the Marvel people are terrific people, we have great respect for them, but on the other hand we have some pretty terrific people of our own. Kevin didn’t do all the work.”

Zero Day Android Exploits Now Cost More Than Ios, And That's A Good Thing

Zero Day Android Exploits Now Cost More Than iOS, And That's A Good Thing

During the early days, this led to a lot of problems as it meant that malware could be easily hidden in these apps. Also, screening systems back then weren’t quite as sophisticated, thus allowing apps with malware to make it past Google’s checks. However, these days it’s starting to look very different where according to a report from WIRED, zero-day exploits for Android are being priced higher compared to iOS.

This is actually a good thing, at least for Android users, where it basically means that there are fewer zero-day exploits for Android, or at least Google has made it harder for hackers to find, thus increasing the price of those available. The same cannot be said for iOS, where it seems that there are more being sold in these underground markets, thus lowering its prices.

Nvidia's Geforce Now Cloud Gaming Comes To Android

NVIDIA's GeForce Now Cloud Gaming Comes To Android

It also removes certain device limitations, where in theory you could stream a PC game to your smartphone. There are several such services in the market today, such as NVIDIA’s GeForce Now. The good news is that if you were considering it, you’ll be pleased to learn that GeForce Now will soon be available on Android.

According to NVIDIA’s announcement, “Just like on PC, Mac and SHIELD TV, when the Android mobile app releases it’ll be in beta. We’ll continue improving and optimizing the experience. To take full advantage of the mobile experience, we’re recommending gaming with a Bluetooth gamepad, such as SHIELD controller, Razer Raiju Mobile, Steelseries Stratus Duo or Glap Gamepad (in Korea), as some games will be unplayable on an Android phone without a gamepad.”

Amazon Is Now Taking Pre-orders For The Nintendo Switch Lite

Amazon Is Now Taking Pre-Orders For The Nintendo Switch Lite

For gamers who might have been holding off on the Nintendo Switch, whether it be due to price or maybe concerns regarding battery life, you might have heard the news that Nintendo launched the Switch Lite back in July last month. If you were thinking about getting it, then you’ll be pleased to learn that Amazon is now taking pre-orders for the console.

The Switch Lite will be available in a gray, turqouise, or yellow finish where it will be priced at $200 for the console alone. It is expected to begin shipping out to customers on the 20th of September, so you will have to wait close to two months before you’ll be able to get your hands on it.

Amazon Will Now Deliver Into The Trunk Of Honda Cars

Amazon Will Now Deliver Into The Trunk Of Honda Cars

Some of you might recall that back in 2017, Amazon launched Amazon Key which was the company’s way of delivering right into your home. The company later expanded on that when they offered to make deliveries into the trunk of your car, although at that time it only covered Ford and Lincoln vehicles.

Now it looks like if you’re a Honda owner, Amazon is further expanding on its delivery services where they will be able to deliver into your car as well. Of course, not all Honda cars are eligible and only select models are, but if you do own a compatible model, you could have a package waiting in your car.

Amazon Will Now Deliver Your Package To Your Honda Or Acura Vehicle - Autoblog

Amazon will now deliver your package to your Honda or Acura vehicle - Autoblog

Some new Honda and Acura owners will now be able to have their Amazon packages delivered directly to their cars starting today. The company just announced a slew of compatible vehicles from the 2018 and 2019 model years that will be compatible with the service. Several other manufacturers offer the same thing — it's mostly GM and Ford vehicles, but some Volvos will also work. You'll need to be a HondaLink or AcuraLink subscriber for the service to function. That subscription costs $110/year, so it's not exactly cheap. The compatible Hondas include the 2018-19 Accord (including the Hybrid), 2018-19 Insight, 2018-19 Odyssey, 2019 Passport and 2019 Pilot. The caveat here is that you'll need to have the Touring or Elite trim of any of those vehicles. As of now, the Acura RDX in any trim is the only compatible Acura. This system works just the same as it does in other vehicles. You'll need to be parked within two blocks of your delivery address. Then the driver will locate your car, scan your package and unlock your vehicle. After placing the package in your car, the delivery person "requests" for the vehicle to be locked, which sends a notification to your phone confirming that your car is now locked with the package inside. There's a certain level of trust that's necessary to let a total stranger gain access to your car, but you don't have to use the service if you don't want to. That $110 for HondaLink gets you a bunch of other useful stuff like remote vehicle start, remote lock/unlock, stolen vehicle locator and speed alerts and geofencing for parents. All of that can be set from an app on your smartphone.

Shazam For Android Can Now Recognize Music Playing On Your Phone

Shazam For Android Can Now Recognize Music Playing On Your Phone

The app has recently been updated where it now comes with a new feature called “Pop Up Shazam”. This seems to be an Android-only feature at the moment, which is a little ironic considering that Apple now owns the company. According to Shazam, “When Pop Up Shazam is switched on, you will see a persistent notification in you notification drawer. This notification will be used to trigger the floating button. Just tap on it and you will see the Shazam button appear. To Shazam tap on the button and we will tell you the result wherever you are.”

This means that if you’re watching a video on YouTube or Instagram and there is a song playing and you want to know who it is, you can just press the floating Shazam button and it will attempt to identify the song for you. As for iOS users, as we said, this is an Android-only feature (for now), but in the meantime there are alternatives to identifying songs on your phone. This includes using a pair of earphones and placing them next to your phone’s microphone.
