24w ago - Dynamighty Lead Designer David Nottingham shared a video from E3 2013 today showcasing CounterSpy infiltrating PlayStation 3 and PS Vita consoles below.
To quote: So last week was a crazy E3 blur for us at Dynamighty.
Thanks to the good folks at Sony we were able to show CounterSpy to lots of people in their booth. While we were not showing on the main floor we still had a great presence with lots of buzz and even an award nomination! (Thanks Hardcore Gamer!) and we also released our first trailer for the game!
At the show, we were sandwiched between two absolutely beautiful games, Puppeteer, which looks gorgeous, and Beyond: Two Souls, which I swear, people were mistaking for a PS4 title, it looked that good. It was humbling but also inspiring to see the company we were in.
John and I were running between two locations, as the game was being shown in two areas, plus we did some interviews. This live interview with Gamespot was a particular highlight.

252w ago - What did Microsoft want to achieve with this nebulous, spyware-like update?
That question was posed by the author of Dedoimedo, when he found that the latest update to Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 (KB951847) secretly added a strange new component to Firefox.
This is a very serious breach of user trust. Not only is this package delivered without explicit approval, it's also made difficult to remove.

I was not asked to approve or even confirm this installation. There is no mention that this thing was going to be installed, neither on the Microsoft pages or during the installation itself. And now, it seems, it cannot be removed. Fortunately he did find a way and details the removal process HERE.
So what is Microsoft up to, quietly adding components to Firefox? Even if this addition is perfectly benign, are there any guarantees it will always remain so, especially given the STM corporation's dubious history?
Imagine if the Firefox team snuck in an addition...
