Xbox One April Update Rolling Out With Low-Latency Mode, FreeSync, and 1440p Support; 120Hz Support Coming In May Update

Microsoft is rolling out a new Xbox One update that brings 1440p support for the Xbox One S and X, as well as support for AMD’s FreeSync technology to allow compatible displays to sync refresh rates with Microsoft’s consoles. A subsequent update in May will bring 120Hz-display refresh-rate support to the Xbox One. The Verge reports: FreeSync, like Nvidia’s G-Sync, helps remove tearing or stuttering usually associated with gaming on monitors, as the feature syncs refresh rates to ensure games run smoothly. Alongside this stutter-free tech, Microsoft is also supporting automatic switching to a TV’s game mode. Auto Low-Latency Mode, as Microsoft calls it, will be supported on new TVs, and will automatically switch a TV into game mode to take advantage of the latency reductions. The Xbox One will also support disabling game mode when you switch to another app like Netflix. Microsoft is also making some audio tweaks

New .BOT gTLD from Amazon

Today, I’m excited to announce the launch of .BOT, a new generic top-level domain (gTLD) from Amazon. Customers can use .BOT domains to provide an identity and portal for their bots. Fitness bots, slack bots, e-commerce bots, and more can all benefit from an easy-to-access .BOT domain. The phrase “bot” was the 4th most registered domain keyword within the .COM TLD in 2016 with more than 6000 domains per month. A .BOT domain allows customers to provide a definitive internet identity for their bots as well as enhancing SEO performance.

At the time of this writing .BOT domains start at $75 each and must be verified and published with a supported tool like: Amazon Lex, Botkit Studio, Dialogflow, Gupshup, Microsoft Bot Framework, or Pandorabots. You can expect support for more tools over time and if your favorite bot framework isn’t supported feel free to contact us here: contactbot@amazon.com.

Gitlab merge requests are coming to your desktop

The concept of “merge requests” has changed the way we work – by redefining the way we collaborate. Although it’s a relatively new tool, it’s already hard to think back to how we worked without them. Very recently, they have even burst out of the browser and are now, finally, accessible right on your desktop: the upcoming new major version of Tower, a Git desktop client for Mac and Windows, brings native support for GitLab merge requests! This means that working with merge requests has become even more comfortable and easy: the most common tasks can now be performed directly from your desktop! You can create, merge, comment, inspect, and close merge requests in Tower. And, since you can of course work on your MRs in Tower and in the browser side by side, we’ve included a quick link so you can access the browser version with just a click.

Announcing npm 6

In coordination with today’s announcement of Node.js v10, we’re excited to announce npm@6. This major update to npm includes powerful new security features for every developer who works with open source code. Read on to understand why this matters.We all rely on open source code — so we need to trust itIn this winter’s ecosystem survey, we learned that 97% of worldwide JavaScript developers rely on open source code in our projects. This is borne out by the metrics we’ve observed in the npm Registry, which served 5 billion package downloads last week: it’s indisputable that the model of finding, sharing, and reusing others’ modular code is the new normal in software development.When we asked for your attitudes towards whether the code you use is secure, we learned two eye-opening facts. First: 77% of developers expressed concern with whether the open source code they use is secure. More interestingly, 87% expressed concern about

Trello gets a newsfeed and improved notifications

Trello, the popular card-based project management service owned by Atlassian, is getting a bit of a revamp today.
Traditionally, Trello was always about its cards and boards — and nothing else. But that also meant that power users often had to wade through a number of boards to figure out what they should focus on next. Now, Trello is getting a personalized newsfeed that will highlight activity from your Trello teams.
“By displaying a newsfeed of activity from your Trello teams, home surfaces the information you need, when you need it,” the Trello team writes today. “Let the information come to you and browse at your own pace. See what everyone on your team is working on without having to dig through every individual board.”

The newsfeed will include sections like “Up Next” and “Highlights” to give you a better overview of what’s happening inside your projects. The company tells me that the

Glitch and River5 update — maybe there is a way forward. They do something special with a folder named .data — and luckily River5 can be told to maintain its data anywhere you like through config.json. We may be back in business here. See the thread for details.

Popular crypto wallet MEW hit by DNS attack that drained some users’ accounts

There is concern, tears and lost money in the world of crypto once again after MyEtherWallet (MEW), one of the most popular wallets on the internet, was hit by a DNS hack that saw some users lose their cryptocurrency.
MEW said in a statement that “a couple of Domain Name System registration servers were hijacked around 12PM UTC 24 April to redirect users to a phishing site.” Not all visitors to the site during the hijack were impacted, but MEW said that “a majority” of those who were had been using Google’s DNS.
“We are currently in the process of verifying which servers were targeted to help resolve this issue as soon as possible,” the company added, confirming that it has since secured its website. The company recommends those who had used Google DNS to switch to Cloudflare’s.
Wikipedia, country-specific versions of Microsoft, Google and PayPal and even banks have been hit by

Hijack of Amazon’s domain service used to reroute web traffic for 2hrs unnoticed

Between 11am until 1pm UTC today, DNS traffic — the phone book of the internet, routing you to your favourite websites — was hijacked by an unknown actor.The attackers used BGP — a key protocol used for routing internet traffic around the world — to reroute traffic to Amazon’s Route 53 service, the largest commercial cloud provider who count major websites such as Twitter.com as customers.They re-routed DNS traffic using a man in the middle attack using a server at Equinix in Chicago.From there, they served traffic for over two hours.This would allow them to intercept traffic globally across the internet to Amazon Route 53 customers.
