Bing Will Power AOL Search From Now On
Actually quite a big deal since it was previously something that Google did. Now Bing will power search on Aol properties at the same time they are also the default search provider backend of Firefox via Yahoo. And at the same time they power Siri.

Early in the year I mentioned about Amazon purchase of a whole complex of warehouses in Mexico City. This week they finally launched. But so far I find it a disappointment. Almost like the one from Overstock International. As everything is a little more expensive than buying in eBay or MercadoLibre right now. Only good news so far is for those with a Kindle Reader as now there will be official support for those. But given it is early days and how hard MercadoLibre has pushed to improve their version of Paypal and their offering for shipping that is truly a game changer here in Mexico. They must do be worried about Amazon. Rakuten is also rumored to start an international expansion but considering what happened with Overstock. I think Amazon do has the chance to lead and win as it is truly localized. With only MercadoLibre and eBay standing in its way.
Amazon has finally launched retail operations in Mexico, allowing consumers to buy millions of items ranging from consumer electronics to video games and s

Samurai Jack Tribute
If Samurai Jack has a new series done in cgi. This is how I would like it to look. It is stunning. That or a Video Game done in this style would be great.

I am actually surprised that Wii U will survive to see 2016.  The idea of a Nintendo New Console bridging mobile and console gaming is actually great but can only really be done if they were to take a PC-like approach to it. lets say a specially made for Nintendo Atom x7 chip variant with a new Nvidia ION-like  GPU on the handheld.  X1/PS4 alike AMD console hardware rehash.  That way they do can have the exact same games on both devices and then just optimize them to scale up and scale down.  Nintendo would then be able to copy and piggyback on the ideas of Steam and Nvidia without much effort and catch up to X1 and PS4 and even leave the door open to release their own PC-offerings if they were to want it. But, since that would make too much sense. That is probably not what Nintendo would do.
By now, it’s pretty well acknowledged that E3 2015 has been the best show in many years, with almost every company in attendance showing off a diverse, appealing range of games due to hit in the...

Blackberry will release a Smartphone that is completely Dell Venue Pro styled almost 5 years after the original DVP was released? WHY?  Specially weird considering that BB10 digital keyboard is actually very good. Why not just give it actually high-end hardware and be done with it?
The Canadian company’s upcoming high-end smartphone is rumored to come with Android OS on board.

Overall, Sony had a good keynote, but it just fell short of the one from Xbox. Umm, and It may be just me, but The Last Guardian preview looked way off for me when it came to the characters. The upcoming games that really look incredible are Uncharted 4, FF VII R, R&C, Star Wars Battlefront, Mirror Edge Catalyst, MGS:Phantom Pain, Arkham Knight and Hitman. Only two of those are PS4 exclusive.

Xbox One E3 2015 Keynote
Microsoft really brought it this year. Xbox 360 Backwards Compatibility was probably the most important announcement. The reason being that it pretty much confirms that the Xbox 360 hardware availability ends with 2015. And would not be surprised if the only releases for it are port-downs.

GRRL SCOUTS
Neat! very cool Neo-Retro short. Well, now I know how it would had looked as a TV show. And I would certainly had watched it as I do got the GRRL SCOUTS TPB's. Funny thing is that if it had been produced for real, is more than likely it would had only been produced in Canada. Considering that is where Big Wolf On Campus and Todd & The Book Of Pure Evil were made.

Fascinating. I only remember seeing one of these at a sears or another department store.  Even then I thought it was such an odd idea and the worst was that they were very expensive here. If I remember things correctly they were more expensive than buying a dvd player & a psone.
How DVD players and game consoles nearly combined to rock consumer electronics in the 90s.

+Shawn S It is one of those things you see and then forgot that existed until reminded.  Sort of like Hit Clips or Mini-DVD Audio.

Answer is in History. When Microsoft introduced Original Xbox backwards compatibility in the Xbox 360, it completely killed it. In the case of the Xbox 360, Microsoft will not pull support completely. But I can bet Xbox 360 Hardware Availability ends this year given that as far as I know Microsoft has already stopped making it early this year. All new games coming to it are either ports or indie games. In a sense, the Xbox 360 end of the line is 2015.  That is not to say people will stop buying it since it now so cheap to game on it.

Cryptosteel Indiegogo Crowdfunding Last Call & Giveaway
Only 24hrs for the campaign deadline closing. Check the last call special offer  https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/cryptosteel-the-ultimate-cold-storage-wallet  (For Giveaway, keep reading)

Cryptosteel: The Ultimate Cold Storage Bitcoin Wallet
There is no better way to keep a Bitcoin wallet private key safe from hacking of any kind than to have it offline and in physical form.  But it is even better if you can also have it safe from getting destroyed by accident. The very best if you can also be sure you can hide it anywhere without worry it will wear down no matter what. And that is what Cryptosteel is all about. How does that work is self-explanatory just by looking at it. And from the first time I looked at it, I liked it.

Now I am lucky to have Wojciech Stopinski doing a promo campaign for it in THE G+ Bitcoin Community. But someone else can get lucky and win one Cryptosteel for free. The only thing you need to do is reshare this post, 1+ it and comment with your interest to have one. For extra points on showing you are really interested you only have to retweet the tweet I will be doing tomorrow about it which I will link here too. Winner will be announced next week.
