Troubled Bitcoin exchange Mt Gox has abandoned all plans to rebuild and will go into liquidation. The Wall Street Journal reported that the exchange is asking for permission to liquidate from a Tokyo court as it now views that its plans to exit bankruptcy protection are too complex and unrealistic.
The internet feels very much like an extension of my home. My own little corner of the internet is very much like the TARDIS: bigger on the inside than on the outside. Games, pictures, documents, notes, and friends all reside within a digital space that is both easy to access and conveniently does not fill up my shelves with junk. Unfortunately, the last week has pointed out that while the internet feels like home, many of us still leave the front door open.
It is more known as a company that produced gaming peripherals, Razer did surprised plenty of people when it decided to launch a smartband called Razer Nabu at CES 2014. The dual-display smartband is designed not only to relay notifications and track usage data but it is also able to discover other nearby Nabu which gives it a social capability.
Originally intended to be released to developers in Q1 this year, Razer has unfortunately delayed the release to end of May or early June according to the email that the company has sent to developers last week.
One of my fondest gaming memories was playing Total Annihilation back in 1997. It was a time when Cavedog Entertainment provided new units to use every month; free of charge. These new units weren’t all that game-changing either; just nice additions to the already massive arsenal that few other games have managed to provide. Things have changed a lot since then.

As some of you might aware, Microsoft is no longer providing support for Windows XP and Office 2003 starting from yesterday onwards. This means that both software will no longer receive updates or fixes from Microsoft and that might spell trouble to companies especially small and medium enterprises (SMEs) out there that have yet to move away from both software.
To benefit such organizations, Microsoft Malaysia together with TM and Intel Malaysia have launched a trade-in program called “Good Bye XP, Good Buy Windows 8” to help them migrate to Windows 8 and Office 365.
8 April seemed to be an eventful day for the folks at Microsoft. Not only that the company has ended the support for Windows XP and Office 2003, it has also rolled out the new update for Windows 8.1 and Windows RT 8.1 that offers better experience for mouse and keyboard users.
The new patch should be available for your Windows 8.1 and Windows RT 8.1 device via Windows Update right now.
Launched in October 2001, Microsoft Windows XP has finally reached the end of its life. By that, we don’t mean your Windows XP-based PC will blow up today or your Windows XP will cease to function. What we actually mean by end of life is that Microsoft is stopping the support that it has provided to the operating system for the past 12 years starting from today onwards.
If there is one particular thing that many Windows 8 users out there would like to see on the operating system once again, that would be the iconic Start Menu. As Microsoft focuses on touch interface Windows 8, the Start Menu was side lined in favour on the Modern/Metro UI. Even though Microsoft added the Start Button once again through Windows 8.1 few month ago, it’s just a shortcut button that mainly acts as a switcher between desktop environment and Start Screen.
That will soon be a history though as the company has confirmed that the Start Menu will make a return to Windows 8.1 very soon.
The concept of early access is not a strange one to PC gamers. It is essentially paying for access to a game early, usually during early development stages. While some are already familiar with access to beta tests for games, this takes the concept of player feedback and participation to a whole new level. Of course, it also allows studios to have some income long before their game is released.
