Judge grants $415 million settlement in anti-poaching suit against tech companies

We've brought you news about Apple's lawsuits over patent infringement before. This latest lawsuit is from the other side of the industry. This time, workers from various tech companies including Apple Inc., Google Inc., Intel Corp., and Adobe Systems Inc. have come forward saying that these companies made illegal agreements with each other not to hire new employees coming from one of the said companies. This effectively ended the ability for all of those employees to leverage outside opportunities for better positions within their own companies.

Softcard closes up shop to prepare for Google assimilation

Softcard closes up shop to prepare for Google assimilation

Customers of Softcard, formerly known as Isis Wallet, just can't catch a break. The mobile payment system changed its name last year in order to avoid being associated with a violent militant group. Now just half a year later, the company is announcing that it is all over, at least as far as the brand and the service itself goes. It's all good news for the company, however, as the reason it is closing isn't because of bankruptcy but because their IP has just been acquired by Google.

Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes coming to NVIDIA GRID

Kenichiro Imaizumi, Senior Producer for Konami spoke up this week onstage during the NVIDIA SHIELD presentation. He spoke about NVIDIA GRID - and the fact that Metal Gear Solid V Ground Zeroes would be released to NVIDIA GRID this year.

NVIDIA GRID subscriptions begin in June for all SHIELD devices

NVIDIA GRID subscriptions begin in June for all SHIELD devices

This week it's been revealed that the NVIDIA GRID system will officially be leaving its free-for-all this June. That means users of the NVIDIA SHIELD Portable and the NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet will have to start paying cash to NVIDIA to continue using the streaming gaming system known as NVIDIA GRID. That does NOT mean that anyone will have to start paying for NVIDIA GameStream. That's an entirely different monster. That piece of this equation will remain free for the foreseeable future.

Instead of continuing with a sort of an All You Can Eat situation, NVIDIA GRID will have you paying a subscription cost - for streaming services - as well as a cost per game. Each game you purchase in this way will be delivered to you with a Steam code as well - for full PC gaming.

At this time it's not entirely clear whether or not the game will be able to be played on Android devices besides NVIDIA SHIELD - but it might! For now we'll assume it'll stick with NVIDIA SHIELD exclusively.

Crysis 3 Android release: yes, NVIDIA SHIELD can run it

This year Crysis 3 will be released to Android. This is a mobile platform, yes, but the processing power in mobile system-on-chip processing architecture has become so robust that it can, indeed, run Crysis. NVIDIA's Tegra X1 SoC can run it, anyway. We're to understand that Crysis 3 will be released at around or during the release of the NVIDIA SHIELD Android TV device later this year. This game is relatively early in development, but it's coming to Android, and its coming soon!
