AdBlock- 'Canvas Fingerprinting' Tech Over-Hyped, Can Be Blocked.
Fingerprinting absolutely CAN be thwarted!

(Especially with spoofed headers set to Random IP and spoofed ETags turned on)


Actually...you may want the github version since there are more features that Mozilla won't allow on the FF add on site.

I don't want Crytek to fail, I just want them to get back to making decent games again.

Dude, probably most of the folks that made Far Cry are long gone.

Just sayin'... it's not the same company.

I think a much more interesting twist on this would be:

Everyone Invisible
Can see the weapon fire
Stuff in the environment easily disturbed (has movement as you walk by)

No real need for "screen cheating"... just watch the environment / other's gun fire and take pot shots. If you hit they become bloody visible just before they die or explode or whatever.

This is EA... right?

Yeah, this is actually a nice gesture.


It's also genius marketing, given how popular The Sims are, to get people to install Origin.

It won't get me to install it, and I wouldn't exactly call it a "Nice Gesture".

Crytek engineer joins id Software. Those are some big shoes he has to fill…

Crytek is just fine.

...also, not sure if the shoes are all that big to fill... iD tech 5 kind of sucked.

Uh... it looks like it was ONE pledge... in the 10k or more bracket.

It was either one of them or one of their friends.... they'll get their money back plus the scammers get to split the 35k or so (minus kickstarter's take)

As the article says... most of the credit goes to the Kinect-less version for $399.

Amazing how getting rid of an unwanted bundled spycam would boost their sales, eh?

They have some real rocket scientists working at Microsoft marketing!!!

So... now you can buy a less powerful PS4 for the same price.
(Of course, game exclusives will drive some of the sales one way or the other)

The report claims some of the cuts will be in marketing departments for businesses such as the global Xbox team...

The first "Marketing" guy that needs to go is Major Nelson.

Not defending Foxconn nor their working conditions... but they employ over 1 million people.

When you put it in that perspective... the suicide rate is actually fairly low, and being dramatized by the media. We have less than that in the northern half of my state, and there's been more suicides than what is reported at Foxconn every year.

That said... I too wait for the robots to unplug themselves!

So you avoid 50% of the tracking, but not the 50% the police go to with warrants.

I don't care about law enforcement tracking where they have to get a warrant, and there really isn't any personal info on a dumb phone... so no biggie, there.

I'm just getting sick and tired of all the companies that track your online activity. So, eliminating the OS manufacturer has some value to me. Also, a dumb phone wouldn't have a web browser, so I wouldn't be tracked that way.

Here's another pro... if my dumb Phone gets lost or stolen.. I wouldn't really care, since it has no personal info on it. Yeah... I know they are passing kill switch legislation, but if the info isn't there in the first place, then it doesn't really matter.

Now, I never said I was going to switch to a dumb phone... I said I was considering it. I'm also considering a black phone, a modded android without google, or a firefox phone. The only inconvenience of going to a dumb phone for me would be that I would be unable to look up prices when I'm in a store... so, I have to weigh that out.

As for apps, I hardly have any installed on my phone... just an ad blocking web browser and a file manager. (My tablet has a few games, starwalk, the same ad blocking web browser, and a weather app).

So, I'm no app fiend... but if I travel, I'm more likely to use my tablet than my phone to occupy myself. Oh... and it's wifi only... so no carrier tracking with that.

I've actually been considering going back to a dumb phone to avoid a majority of the tracking.

Unfortunately, Windows 9 will probably still have that shitty "flat look" that seems to be all the rage of UI designers, lately (including IOS, the new OSX, and the new Android)

I fricken hate the "flat look".

Crytek's games always seemed like glorified tech demos. The problem is that they could never sell their engine for any decent game, as the market is essentially build your own engine or use Unreal(with a few rare instances of Source or id). Monolith ran into the same problem with Lithtech after FEAR played itself out.

I think the First Far Cry was pretty good, compared to what other engine developers put out after iD's peak of Quake 3 engine sales. Crysis on the other hand... haven't owned one of them... especially when they started crying that everyone was pirating. I tried the fist crysis demo when it came out and it didn't grab me (obviously).

That said, it seems more like everyone is either going Unity (Especially indies), or Unreal. iD has no Tech 5 sales to speak of, and Cry Engine has a handful compared Unreal and Unity.
