Microsoft outlines the upgrade procedures for Xbox One X

Ars Technica - August 21, 2017 - 3:58pm

Enlarge / Prepare yourself...

Last night's pre-Gamescom Microsoft press presentation was light on major announcements. But the event did include some details about how current Xbox One owners will be able to move their games and settings over to the new, 4K-capable Xbox One X when it launches on November 7.

The easiest way to get all your games to the new system, as outlined by Microsoft Vice President Mike Ybarra, will be to just put them on an external USB hard drive and then plug that drive into the new console. "All your games are ready to play" immediately after this external hard drive move, he said, and user-specific settings can also be copied via external hard drive in the same way.

If you don't have an external drive handy, "we're going to let you copy games and apps off your home network instead of having to manually move them or redownload them off the Internet," Ybarra said. It's unclear right now if Microsoft will mirror the PS4 Pro and allow this kind of system-to-system transfer using an Ethernet cable plugged directly into both consoles.

IDG Contributor Network: Bank acceptance of bitcoin key to wider adoption of crypto - IT industry - August 21, 2017 - 2:39pm

Bitcoin broke into public consciousness during the early part of the decade. Now that bitcoin is trading at more than $4,000, it can be hard to imagine why it's not getting more attention.

While bitcoin has been the talk of the town of late, adoption of cryptocurrencies and crypto services are still limited. We have yet to see ordinary consumers use bitcoin to pay for day-to-day transactions over cash and cards. In addition, banks and bitcoin still appear to be at odds with each other.

Financial institutions have not been oblivious to blockchain, the technology that powers bitcoin and similar cryptocurrencies. Financial organizations appear best fit to use blockchain for the speedy and immutable distributed ledger technology that it is. The financial services industry has essentially acknowledged the technology's capabilities by embarking on its own blockchain projects. An IBM study revealed that 33 percent of organizations are actively exploring blockchain. Recently, IBM was also reported to be working with seven of Europe's biggest banks to develop blockchain technology.

So, you’re not seeing the eclipse today …

Ars Technica - August 21, 2017 - 2:00pm

Despite all the hype surrounding Monday's solar eclipse—and it has become nearly inescapable—most Americans will not see the totality. This is unfortunate, because the Sun disappearing during the middle of the day is truly a moving experience. But if you're not seeing it today, don't feel too bad—you're not alone.

Only about 12 million people live within the 110km-wide path of totality that runs across the United States, from Oregon through South Carolina. By various estimates, an additional 1.8 to 7.4 million people will travel into the path of totality to view the eclipse. This means only about 6 percent of the United States population will see a total eclipse on Monday.

So if you're missing out, rest assured that most other Americans are, too. Also, you should start planning ahead. Because while it has been nearly a century since a total eclipse spanned the continental United States, we won't wait that long again. Here's a look at what lies ahead.
