Published

on

The contest between Konami and EA has been a very tough one over the years and EA is not stopping at anything to make the next iteration of FIFA an amazing video game. ⚽

FIFA 18 Review- Latest Update, Trailer And Release Date 1

When it comes to soccer games I play more of PES but the few times I’ve played FIFA was a totally different experience, the graphics were top notch and game speed was excellent.

I’d say FIFA 17 was a new beginning for EA. They switched to a new game engine- Frostbite. This move brought greater visual flexibility, and new kinds of gameplay.

FIFA took on Pro Evolution Soccer’s Become A Legend with “The Journey”. It was seemed to be better than PES except that your actions were limited to the story mode. The journey tells the story of Alex Hunter, a young teen trying to make it into the first eleven of a Premier League club.

I really feel that if FIFA 17 was a fresh start, EA ought to use this year to make up for every mistake. The Journey is certainly coming back on FIFA 18 and Hunter may leave the Premier League.

I’m guessing it’s going to be to a Spanish club 😎. Well probably because Ronaldo is going to appear in the story mode. There are also more locations, you can spot a colourful Brazilian street and Cristiano Ronaldo both pictured in The Journey’s first batch of marketing materials.

According to Sam Rivera, Associate Producer For FIFA, “FIFA 18 Is going to be different. Personalities will matter more.

This year FIFA is going to benefit not just the strong and the fast but every player with a good attribute. Let’s say you have a very good long passer and a player that’s good at long shots, it’ll make a difference in your team.Very good defenders will also make a difference at the back. So each player will have attributes that will mean more. 😃

The game will have players who are experts in timing, because you need to know exactly when to go. So a player like Griezmann will be faster at recognising that space than another player who may hang around for longer and make the wrong timing for the run.”

Release Date – September 29th ,2017.
Watch the trailer below.  I wonder why It has to be Chelsea players  that Ronaldo dribbles in the trailer. EA could have used Manchester United. Stop embarrassing my team 😭

Here’s the Trailer For THE JOURNEY

Mercedes Benz Accused Of Using Car Tracking Software On Their Cars

Mercedes Benz Accused Of Using Car Tracking Software On Their Cars 13

If you thought privacy issues end on social media then you might have to think again. Top Auto brand Mercedes Benz has been accused of using car tracking software to monitor drivers who use their cars.

The secret car tracking sensors, were all built into all new and used motors sold by the firm’s dealers, to enable them pinpoint the vehicle’s exact location.

Mercedes has refused to say how long it has used the sensors and has insisted  the sensors are only activated in “extreme circumstances” — when certain customers have defaulted on payment.

However it has admitted to sharing car owner information and vehicle location details with third-party bailiffs and recovery firms who repossess the cars.

British Ex cabinet minister David Davis has called for extensive investigation into the matter.

According to Davis, “This is not the first time big business has behaved like Big Brother — but it’s rare to be quite as deceitful as this, I have to question whether it is even legal to pass on information to other people such as bailiffs. I would think the relevant minister ought to look very closely at the legality of this procedure.”

British Human Rights Group, Liberty said Mercedes’ actions were disturbing and part of the “creeping growth of surveillance”.

Legal experts have also raised concerns.  According to a legal practitioner, “Modern technology means our ability to keep personal information private is under threat like never before.

“Organisations that handle personal data need to be completely upfront about what they are doing. That Mercedes appear not to have been so in this case is concerning. Its customers may start to worry about what other personal information the company may be gathering, then passing on.”

Personally, I have always said that privacy in the 21st Century is more or less an illusion. Just when you think all your data is secure, then it hits you.  Mercedes isn’t the first to do this, however their rivals BMW, Jaguar Land Rover and Volkswagen have all denied that they do similar tracking.

An investigation by The Sun months ago revealed that Amazon staff can listen to Alexa recordings of British couples rowing, discussing private family matters — and having sex.

Yes you read that line, having sex. I haven’t seen something as obnoxious and bizarre as listening to conversations and sex at the same time. I don’t know the perverted employees Amazon has employed but it’s not acceptable.

According To Mercedes Benz , the said sensors are not used to permanently track customers or access real time data.  “When a customer chooses to finance the purchase of their car this way they sign a contract and agree to the location sensors in the car being activated in the event that they default or breach their agreement.

“This clause in the finance contract is in bold print, just above the customer’s signature.

“Locating the car is part of the repossession process and is not permanently tracking customers.

“It is only activated in exceptional circumstances where the customer has breached their finance agreement and repeatedly failed to reply to requests to contact us.”

Nevertheless, It’s actually good if you can track your car on your own terms and luckily I know a good car tracking service.

After almost two decades of service, Apple is reportedly dumping iTunes.

It first started off as rumors, but now it is going to be made official at WWDC in just a few hours.

Before this, you might have noticed that the Instagram and Facebook page of iTunes has had a slight change.

Posts on both pages has been entirely deleted – Apple’s move at shifting away from iTunes links, I guess.

Before this, there has been separate apps for music on its mobile devices, however, not available for Mac OS.

Relating to that, there is supposedly going to be an announcement for three separate apps for its music, TV and podcasts, and hopefully they’ll also be available for Mac Books.

We’ll just keep our fingers crossed for this and other big announcements at WWDC.
