  7. EA says the process of removing the Online Pass requirement from its catalogue of games will take several weeks. Electronic Arts have begun removing the 'Online Pass' requirement from previously released games, IGN are reporting. The move follows a recent announcement from the company that it is dropping Online Passes from all of its future releases. Online reaction to the removal of the Online Pass scheme from future games was initially positive, however since the Xbox One was revealed, many observers have been suggesting that the move was less about relaxing their grip on second hand sales revenue and more because - thanks to the Xbox One's apparent used games DRM - it's no longer required. News that older games will also no longer need Online Passes casts new light on the change; a perspective that's further enforced by a statement made by EA accompanying today's news. "As we discontinue Online Pass for our new EA titles, we are also in the process of eliminating it from all our existing EA titles as well. We heard the feedback from players and decided to do away with Online Pass altogether," says EA. "Players will see it first with some EA Sports titles, where a prompt to enter an Online Pass code will no longer appear in-game; with other titles we are simply making Online Passes available free of charge online. "These are rolling updates that are taking effect over the next several weeks. We hope players continue to enjoy our games and online services for a long time to come."

  8. Windows 8 alienated many PC users (Reuters) Microsoft is trying to fix what it got wrong with its radical makeover of Windows. It's making the operating system easier to navigate and enabling users to set up the software so it starts in a more familiar format designed for personal computers. The revisions to Windows 8 will be released later this year. The free update, called Windows 8.1, represents Microsoft's concessions to long-time customers taken aback by the dramatic changes to an operating system that had become a staple in households and offices around the world during the past 20 years. Research group IDC has blamed Windows 8 for accelerating a decline in PC sales. With the release of Windows 8 seven months ago, Microsoft introduced a startup screen displaying applications in a mosaic of interactive tiles instead of static icons. The shift agitated many users who wanted the option to launch the operating system in a mode that resembled the old setup. That choice will be provided in Windows 8.1. However, Microsoft isn't bringing back the start menu on the lower left corner of the screen. Windows has offered the button for accessing all programs and settings on every previous version of the operating system since 1995. Microsoft believes the startup screen replaces the need for a button, but its omission has ranked among the biggest gripes about Windows 8. Microsoft is hoping to quiet the critics by resurrecting an omnipresent Windows logo anchored in the lower left corner. Users will also be able to ensure their favourite applications, including Word and Excel, appear in a horizontal tool bar next to the Windows logo. Accessing apps outside the toolbar will still require using the tiles or calling them up in a more comprehensive search engine included in the Windows 8.1 updates. Microsoft Corp. announced its plans for Windows 8.1 in early May, but it didn't offer details about what it will include until Thursday. The Redmond, Wash., company will provide a more extensive tour of Windows 8.1 and several new applications built into the upgrade at a conference for programmers in San Francisco, scheduled to begin June 26. Antoine Leblond, a Microsoft executive who helps oversee the operating system's program management, said the ability to start PCs in the more familiar format is meant to ease the "cognitive dissonance" caused by Windows 8. Gartner analyst Carolina Milanesi predicted the desktop option will spur more sales of Windows 8 computers. "Some people were getting fixated" on the desktop issue, Milanesi said. "This may cause more people who felt uncomfortable with Windows 8 to take a second look." Microsoft made the dramatic overhaul to Windows in an attempt to expand the operating system's franchise beyond personal computers that rely on keyboards and mice to smartphones and tablet computers controlled by a touch or swipe of the finger. But Windows 8 has been widely panned as a disappointment, even though Microsoft says it has licensed more than 100 million copies so far. Microsoft views Windows 8.1 as more than just a fix-it job. From its perspective, the tuneup underscores Microsoft's evolution into a more nimble company capable of moving quickly to respond to customer feedback while also rolling out more innovations for a myriad of Windows devices - smartphones, tablets or PCs. "Windows 8 has been out long enough for us to take stock of where things are going and what we need to do to move it forward," Leblond said in an interview with The Associated Press. It's crucial that Microsoft sets things right with Windows 8.1 because the outlook for the PC market keeps getting gloomier. IDC now expects PC shipments to fall by nearly 8 percent this year, worse than its previous forecast of a 1 percent dip. IDC also anticipates tablets will outsell laptop computers for the first time this year. The growing popularity of tablets is now being driven largely by less expensive devices with seven and eight-inch display screens. Microsoft built Windows 8 to primarily to run on tablets with 10-inch to 12-inch screens, an oversight that Leblond said the company is addressing by ensuring Windows 8.1 works well on smaller devices. If Windows 8.1 doesn't stimulate more sales of PCs and tablets running on the operating system, it could escalate the pressure on Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer. Although the company's revenue and earnings have steadily risen since Ballmer became CEO 13 years ago, Microsoft's stock performance has lagged other technology companies. Investors, though, appear to be more optimistic about Ballmer's strategy. Microsoft's stock has risen by 26 percent since Windows 8's release last October, outpacing the 17 percent gain in the Standard & Poor's 500 index during the same period. Microsoft's stock gained 15 cents Thursday to close at US$35.03. The upcoming changes to Windows 8 are as much about reassuring the PC manufacturers and other device makers who license the operating system as appeasing consumers, Forrester Research analyst Sarah Rotman Epps said. "The messaging is really directed at people in the industry," she said. "The original launch (of Windows 8) seemed incomplete and Microsoft is trying to address that now." Windows 8.1 will lean heavily on Microsoft's Bing search technology to simplify things. As with Windows 8, the search bar can be found by pulling out a menu from the right side of a display screen. Rather than requiring a user to select a category, such as "files" or "apps", Windows 8.1 will make it possible to find just about anything available on the computer's hard drive or on the web by just typing in a few words. For instance, a search for "Marilyn Monroe" might display biographical information about the late movie star pulled from the web, a selection of photos and video and even songs she sang. Anyone who wants to hear a particular song stored on the computer or play a specific game such as Angry Birds will just need to type a title into the search box to gain access within seconds. The redesigned search tool is meant to provide Windows 8.1 users with "pure power and instant entertainment", said Jensen Harris, Microsoft's director of user experience for the operating system. Applications also can be found by sorting them by letter or category. Other new features in Windows 8.1 include a built-in connection with Microsoft's online storage system, SkyDrive, to back up photos, music and program files; Internet Explorer 11, the next generation of Microsoft's web browser; a lock-up screen that will display a slide show of a user's favourite pictures; resized interactive tiles; and a photo editor. In an effort to avoid further confusion about the operating system, Windows 8.1 also will plant a tile clearly labelled "helps and tips" in the centre of the startup screen. Even as Microsoft positions Windows 8 as its solution to the popularity of touch-screen tablets, it hasn't proven it's compelling enough to put a major dent in the popularity of Apple's pioneering iPad or other tablets running on Google's Android software. Microsoft, though, remains convinced that Windows 8 just needs a little fine tuning. "We feel good about the basic bets that we have made," Leblond said.
  9. Kim Dotcom has won another battle in his ongoing legal case over his extradition and alleged copyright breaches. Justice Helen Winkelmann has released her judgment today in relation to the return of items seized from Dotcom's Coatesville Mansion in January 2011 and the decision is in the internet tycoon's favour. The judgment was delivered following a hearing in April where Dotcom's lawyers were asking for the return of items seized during the raid. Crown lawyer David Boldt said at the time it would be difficult to sift through the large amount of information to determine what was relevant and what was not. "Just about anything which has digital storage capacity could contain relevant material, including entertainment systems. That needs to be looked at in terms of its relevance before a decision is made to return it," he said. Meanwhile Dotcom's lawyer Paul Davidson said the denial of the information left Dotcom defenceless to fight extradition to the US where he faces the copyright breach charges. Justice Winkelmann has ordered the review of all items seized, including the contents of digital storage devices, for the purpose of identifying irrelevant material. The process is to be paid for by the police. Any items found to be irrelevant to the case has to be returned to Dotcom and the other accused, she says. Justice Winkelmann also ordered two copies of other "mixed content" devices to be made. One, a complete clone, is to be given to Dotcom and another copy with personal files deleted is for the US authorities. Copied data created by the FBI and held by police will also be provided to the accused when Dotcom hands over encryption passwords. An order was also made requiring the examination of original devices which were cloned and if they are irrelevant to the investigation must be returned. Police were also to request the US authorities destroy the irrelevant cloned material. The Police say they are considering the judgement and will seek advice from the Crown. 3 News
