Microsoft just dropped two trailers for ‘Halo 5′ and announced its release date (MSFT)

| March 30, 2015 | 0 Comments



The next installment of Microsoft’s critically important “Halo” series is officially coming to the Xbox One on October 27, according to two new trailers for the game that debuted during Sunday night’s season finale of “The Walking Dead.”

Both trailers for “Halo 5: Guardians” were filmed in live action and feature no actual footage from the game, but they hint at a possible plot line: A super soldier we’ve never seen before named Locke believes Master Chief, the protagonist from the previous “Halo” games, to be a traitor for some reason — and from Master Chief’s perspective, it sounds like he something that created unintended consequences.

Both trailers sound mysterious, but it appears the plot line for “Halo 5″ will follow two different perspectives, suggesting players will be able to control two different characters: Master Chief, and Locke. You can check out the trailers below.

“Halo 5″ will be the third major release from 343 Industries, the game developer that took over the “Halo” franchise since it switched hands from Bungie in 2007. 343 Industries was also responsible for “Halo 4″ in 2012, and last year’s “Halo: The Master Chief Collection,” which bundled all four “Halo” games and included a complete visual overhaul for the classic game “Halo 2.”

The “Halo” franchise is hugely important for Microsoft and its Xbox unit: The games have collectively sold more than 60 million copies across the globe and grossed more than $3.4 billion since 2001, according to Microsoft’s estimates.

We first saw the news about the new trailers over at Kotaku.

Apple CEO Tim Cook: ‘There’s something very dangerous happening’ in America (AAPL)

| March 30, 2015 | 0 Comments



In a Washington Post op-ed published late Sunday night, Apple CEO Tim Cook expounded upon his earlier remarks on Twitter Friday, saying he was “deeply disappointed”  in the recently-passed law in Indiana that shields business owners from turning away customers based on religious reasons.

Cook called this new wave of pro-discrimination legislation — the law passed in Indiana, and nearly 100 bills currently under consideration in over a dozen states across America — are “very dangerous” and “go against the very principles our nation was founded on,” adding “they have the potential to undo decades of progress toward greater equality.”

America’s business community recognized a long time ago that discrimination, in all its forms, is bad for business. At Apple, we are in business to empower and enrich our customers’ lives. We strive to do business in a way that is just and fair. That’s why, on behalf of Apple, I’m standing up to oppose this new wave of legislation — wherever it emerges. I’m writing in the hopes that many more will join this movement. From North Carolina to Nevada, these bills under consideration truly will hurt jobs, growth and the economic vibrancy of parts of the country where a 21st-century economy was once welcomed with open arms.

Cook is very familiar with discrimination. In a New York Times profile from last June, Cook recalled witnessing several Ku Klux Klan members burning a cross on the lawn of a black family he knew back in the early 1970s. When he heard glass break, Cook said he yelled “stop” but quickly pedaled away once he recognized one of the hooded figures was a deacon from a local church.

“The days of segregation and discrimination marked by “Whites Only” signs on shop doors, water fountains and restrooms must remain deep in our past,” Cook said in his Sunday op-ed. “We must never return to any semblance of that time. America must be a land of opportunity for everyone.”

Cook is one of several tech executives to oppose this wave of controversial, discriminatory bills. Marc Benioff, CEO of Salesforce, announced on Thursday that his company would cancel “all programs that require our customers/employees to travel to Indiana to face discrimination.”

“This isn’t a political issue,” Cook said. “It isn’t a religious issue. This is about how we treat each other as human beings.”
