Zenimax v Oculus Raging with Carmack

UploadVR has a bit wider coverage on the Zennimax v Oculus case going on in Federal Court here in Dallas. Carmack copped to taking the files in question but does not cop to "stealing" those files. I know if I walk out of the Stop-N-Rob down on the corner with a 40oz, the cops are not going to cut me a lot of slack just because I have not popped it open. Of course this is a civil case about damages, not a criminal trial. Still, it will be interesting to see what decisions are made based on the fact that he had the files in question in his possession.

According to Gizmodo, Carmack said, "I copied files that I shouldn’t have. I think stealing is an uncharitable way to look at it since I didn’t benefit and ZeniMax didn’t lose, but I shouldn’t have done it, and I did." Beth Wilkinson, Oculus’ lawyer, also said Carmack shouldn’t have copied the files, and that he turned everything in within a year of the litigation being filed.

This is what is at the crux of the matter.

Sammi’s questions focused on the allegations that Carmack used ZeniMax-owned computers to work on the Oculus Rift, took thousands of files and emails via USB drive upon leaving the company in 2013, played a role in soliciting five employees from id Software, and used "VR testbed" code to benefit the Oculus Rift. Carmack said he found a MacBook in his closet which contained code from id’s RAGE, and copied files and emails owned by ZeniMax.

Of course, the fact that RAGE is involved somehow is enough for me to suggest they lock him up. It's been 5 years and I still want my money back. Discussion

Verizon Unlimited Users Averaging 200GB Or More Per Month Get The Boot

Not content with mere price hikes, Verizon will also be punishing "unlimited" users with a 200GB usage limit. Those who dare to venture beyond that face the consequence of losing their plans and being forced to migrate to another. Interestingly, even users who are nowhere near the limit have been getting warnings from the company.

Last year, Verizon began informing customers who used an "extraordinary" amount of data on unlimited plans that they would no longer be able to keep those unlimited data plans. At the time, Verizon wouldn’t set a specific number of GB on that "extraordinary" number, but we ventured to guess it was around 100GB per month or more after hearing feedback from readers and with Verizon pointing to their 100GB plan over and over. As it turns out, that number has either adjusted to a higher number or we were simply wrong. Either way, another wave of customers are getting the boot and need to find a new plan or carrier by February 16.

Autodesk's Pixlr* Leveraging Intel RealSense Technology

Today, Intel announced that its Intel® RealSense™ technology is now featured in Autodesk’s latest version of its online image editor, Pixlr*. Intel software engineers worked closely with Autodesk to enable Pixlr to capture 3D image data using the Intel RealSense 3D camera, allowing users to seamlessly extract, replace or enhance the foreground and background in real time (no green-screen required). What used to be a multi-step, time-consuming and somewhat technical editing process is now quick and simple for anyone who loves taking and sharing great photos. Intel will be sharing updates on Intel RealSense Technology at the Intel Developer Forum on August 18-20.

Raging Asstasstic Views!

Finally getting a moment to Rage a little bit myself finally this evening. If you think Rage is awesome looking at 1080P, wait till you see it on the big screen with the quality forced as high as I could get it! roll eyes (sarcastic) I now present you with two 500KB full 3600x1920 resolution screen captures that will put it all in perspective.
So that is what 22GB if textures looks like? Hmmmm. Would have never guessed that. And trust me, JPeg compression did nothing but make these look better. It almost has me wishing the textures wouldn't pop! I think I am going to go back to playing Driver: San Francisco at its neutered 1800x800 resolution, it looked better, and seems to be a bit more fun.
Don't worry about Johnny C though, because he sure is not worried about you or me, now that he has our $60. Cheers and Rageon! Rage Sucks Ongoing Discussion

Microsoft Encouraging Hacking?

Microsoft looks to have a shift in policy concerning hardware hackers. MS has recruited George "Geohot" Hotz to take a crack at a Windows 7 phone and see what he can make of it. You may know the name from the Sony PS3 legal wrangling.

It may seem counterintuitive compared to the strategies of their rival companies, but Microsoft appears to be trying to win over gamers with more lenient policies regarding hardware hackers.
