Interesting move. I doubt that other browsers would follow this model, though.
Norway-based technology company Opera Software is introducing a free virtual private network (VPN) feature to its desktop browser, making it the first of the major browser operators to build a VPN directly into the software. Today's news comes a little more than a month after Opera unveiled a built-in ad-blocker for the browser.

In-depth review of the HTC Vive by Digital Foundry. In short: The best VR solution currently, but it requires a lot of room space and installation time.

Exactly, what +Andreas Blochberger said. It's a bit ridiculous that this hardware Valve pushes so much isn't (yet) compatible with that that operating system of theirs...

Free Will, does it exist? I always tended to think that it's an illusion, but it also kinda depends on the definition.
Psychiatry is a medicine of the mind, yet our common ideas of the mind are wrong

PS4K specs leaked. Sounds like a nice upgrade for the GPU, but the Jaguar CPU and memory speeds might still provide bottlenecks.
Though the NEO will offer greater visual fidelity than the original PS4, Sony is taking measures not to split their user base in two.
