We went to drive the new Ford Mustang—but a tornado messed things up

Ars Technica - May 17, 2018 - 8:21pm

Jonathan Gitlin

In April, Ford dropped a bombshell on us, announcing that it's going to cull almost its entire car lineup from the US market to concentrate on SUVs and crossovers. Not the Mustang, though. The Blue Oval's sedans might not be selling well, but that's not the case for its sports car, which has topped the sales charts for the coupe market for the third year in a row. On Wednesday, Ford invited us up to Monticello Motor Club in New York to try out the latest flavor of pony car, the Mustang Performance Pack 2. Think of it as the ultimate all-'round Mustang—a better daily driver than the hardcore Shelby GT350 but with almost all of that car's ability on track.

Long-time readers will know that I rarely pass up an opportunity to visit a racetrack. That goes double if there's some seat time involved—triple if someone else is paying for fuel and tires. Which is why I didn't mind too much about the need to catch a 3:10am train from DC up to Manhattan, necessary to be there in time for the shuttle leaving for the track. (Being frugal with my travel budget, I wanted to avoid a night in a hotel.)

Black Ops 4 ditches single-player campaign, adds battle royale mode

At a community reveal event today, developer Treyarch confirmed previous rumors that the upcoming Call of Duty Black Ops 4 will be the first game in the series without a traditional single-player campaign. Instead, the new game will launch on October 12 with a focus on a new "three-pillar" structure of traditional multiplayer modes, alternative zombie-mode side missions, and a new battle royale mode called Blackout.

"It's all about having fun with your friends," Treyarch Chairman Mark Lamia said at the end of the event. "More fun than you've ever had. Black Ops 4 doesn't have a traditional campaign; we're weaving narrative into each of the modes."

For those who might prefer playing alone, Lamia promised "unique ways to play solo in multiplayer and zombies [modes] regardless of your skill level," without going into further detail. "Those of you who just want to ramp up on your own, we've got you covered, too," he said.

As the Web moves toward HTTPS by default, Chrome will remove “secure” indicator

Ars Technica - May 17, 2018 - 7:46pm

Back in February, Google announced its plans to label all sites accessed over regular unencrypted HTTP as "not secure," starting in July. Today, the company described the next change it will make to its browser: in September, Google will stop marking HTTPS sites as secure.

The background to this change is the Web's gradual migration to the use of HTTPS rather than HTTP. With an ever-growing fraction of the Web being served over secure HTTPS—something now easy to do at zero cost thanks to the Let's Encrypt initiative—Google is anticipating a world where HTTPS is the default. In this world, only the occasional unsafe site should have its URL highlighted, not the boring and humdrum secure site.

Type data into the form and the "Not secure" message goes from gray to red. (credit: Google)

Most HTTP sites will get a regular gray "Not secure" label in their address bar. If the page has user input, however, that gray label will become red, indicating the particular risk the page represents: Web forms served up over HTTP could send their contents anywhere, making them risky places to type passwords or credit card numbers.

Dealmaster: Get a 15-inch Asus laptop with an 8th-gen Core i5 for $479

Ars Technica - May 17, 2018 - 7:21pm

Greetings, Arsians! Courtesy of our friends at TechBargains, we have another round of deals to share. Today's list is led by another deal on a budget laptop—this time Asus' VivoBook F510UA, which is down to $479. Normally, this notebook sits in the $500-550 range.

For that price, you get one of Intel's 8th-gen, quad-core Core i5-8250U processors, a 15.6-inch 1080p display, 8GB of RAM, and a 1TB hard drive. There's a USB-C port (albeit of the older Gen 1 variety), HDMI port, and a fingerprint reader as well. The usual caveats about budget laptops apply—namely, if you can afford to pay more for a notebook, you should—and it's probably worth upgrading that HDD to a speedier SSD if you do pull the trigger here. (Just know that this model only accepts M.2 drives, not the faster NVMe.) But for less than $500, it has a decent amount of horsepower for casual use.

We also have deals on Netgear's Orbi mesh routers, the Apple Watch Series 1, more robust gaming laptops, a variety of Samsung 4K TVs, and more.

Energy jobs reports say solar dominates coal, but wind is the real winner

Ars Technica - May 17, 2018 - 7:10pm

Two updated energy jobs reports have been released, and they paint a picture of how the last year has affected different energy sectors. The news is good for wind and natural gas. The news is less good for solar and coal.

The first report, called the US Energy and Employment Report (USEER), comes from the National Association of State Energy Officials (NASEO), and it looks at energy jobs across the US in all sectors of the industry. The second comes from the Solar Foundation, a pro-solar association that tracks jobs with a nation-wide survey from year to year.

According do the USEER, net new energy jobs in the US increased by 133,000. In the "electricity generation and fuels" category, fossil fuels and greenhouse gas-free energy jobs are approaching a half and half split, with 1.1 million jobs in coal, gas, and oil and 800,000 jobs in nuclear and renewable generation jobs.
