Tuesday, Nov. 4, Activision Publishing CEO Eric Hirshberg revealed during the post-earnings financial call that the next "full game" in the Destiny game franchise series has already started.
"Work has also begun on future expansion packs as well as on our next full game release," the executive said. "We're very pleased with the launch and continuing engagement."
The said sequel isn't that surprising at all, given that Activision has already declared that they had a "10-year vision" for the game franchise. more >>
You won't believe how these men capture extremely rare footage of a Siberian tigress escaping into the wildlife. Zolushka is a Siberian tigress that was rescued and rehabilitated by IFAW. What these men do to have us witness such a unique event is incredible.
By using high definition GoPro cameras, they are able to capture a very rare tiger being released and returning to the wild habitat. Believe it or not, there are less than 400 Siberian tigers left in the wild. This number has gone down significantly in recent years.

Valve apparently has some issues regarding a third installment in any of their popular titles. Fans have been clamoring for a Half-Life 3 for years now but there hasn't been an ounce of news anywhere which points to a release. Now, could the Left 4 Dead series be facing the same predicament?
The first Left 4 Dead title was released in 2008, with the sequel released just a year after. The second game seemed like a good closing point for the franchise but a series of leaked images and rumors had rekindled the possibility of a third title.
First there were the screenshots of a Powerpoint presentation containing images from the Left 4 Dead 2 Plantation level rendered in the new Source 2.0 Engine. There's also the allegations that Counter Strike co-creator and former Valve employee Minh Le had seen concept art for both Left 4 Dead 3 and Half-Life 3. more >>
While the Microsoft Band has been taking the headlines of most tech sites with positive reviews, Fitbit has been waging war against Apple over the last couple of weeks. Fitbit had first shied away from Apple's Healtkit platform, which the Cupertino company responded by pulling away Fitbit devices from its Apple stores.
Snubbing Apple's HealthKit platform was a move Fitbit could afford since the company is by far the top fitness band manufacturer with a 69 percent market share. Teaming with Apple using the HealthKit platform would only hurt its market share as their devices could potentially only be usable with the iOS ecosystem.
Only recently, Fitbit had officially revealed a new watch called the Surge alongside two new fitness trackers, the Charge and the Charge HR. The Surge will sell for $249.99 and fatures a built-in GPS, motion sensors, a heart rate monitor, and battery life of up to seven days. Much like most smartwatches in the market, the Surge can also act as a smartphone remote control and notifications hub. more >>
Samsung had recently released the successor to its Chromebook 2, the Chromebook 2 with Intel Celeron. Though the two devices are only a few months apart, the newer Chromebook 2 sports some considerable improvements over the first one.
On the outside, people might not be able to easily distinguish the two Chromebooks apart seeing as the new Chromebook 2 still has the same 11.6-inch LCD screen with a display resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels. The keboard is still the same with the considerable spacing and curved keys as well as the same touchpad.
The major changes are found on the inside of the laptop. The new Chromebook 2 now has an energy-efficient 2.58GHz Intel Celeron processor instead of the Samsung Exynos processor found in the older Chromebook 2. Accompanying the processor are Intel HD graphics, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of internal memory. more >>
Google's latest mobile operating system, Android Lollipop, is starting to make its way to other devices aside from the Nexus 6 and Nexus 9. While it is still unclear when the updates will start rolling out, Lollipop is sure to make its rounds with other Nexus devices sometime this month.
It was initially thought that only the Wi-Fi variants of the 2013 Nexus 7 and Nexus 10 will be getting the updates but it seems that the Nexus 4 and Nexus 5 will also be getting the updates. Like with most other Android updates, Lollipop will be rolling out in phases which means some Nexus users will be getting the update sooner than others.
Updating to Lollipop would require users' Nexus devices to be running on the official Android firmware. The update will be available over-the-air or can be downloaded from various forum sites and from Google themselves. more >>
