    Wacom to release 24inch and 27inch cintiq pro tablets

    Wacom has announced that they are going to be expanding their cintiq pro line by adding a 24inch variant and a massive 32 inch variant. The 32inch tablet will be the biggest tablet that Wacom has ever created since the company was created in 1983. Both the new models will feature Wacom new pro pen 2 technology and will have 4K displays and no parallax. The new tablets will be released in January 2018 a year since Wacom released the smaller cintiq pro models.

    The price of the new models is expected to be very steap with wacom stating that the new tablets will cost between £1,549 to £2,556. With the various Chinese copycat tablets on the market and with the new 27inch dell canvas coming out this summer Wacom has stiff competition. So it  is surprising that Wacom still thinks that it can demand such a high price for their tablets. Wacom has however reduced the RRP of its other big tablets, reducing the 22HD Pen Display is dropping by £100 and the 27qhd and touch version will drop by £350.

    The images of the new cintiq pro models shows that Wacom has opted to not to include a stand for the new models. This means Wacom has chosen to ignore customer complaints about wacom’s cintiq 27qhd model not having a stand. This problem caused many using it to suffer from bad backs due to the poor drawing angle of the tablet meaning you had to slouch over the tablet for long periods. #cheapskates

    This is good news for artists but bad news for their wallets.

    Net neutrality laws let Google censor the internet

    Google is currently taking part in the “day of action” with other internet giants to promote net neutrality laws that Donald Trump has decided to scrap. Google argues net neutrality is needed to stop internet censorship. However, what google isn’t tellling people is that it loves censorship and current laws allow them to use their market dominance to censor websites that they do not wish for people to see. Google uses computer algorithms code named penguin and panda to target and censor websites that do not meet Googles “guidelines”. Over the past few years MILLIONS of small businesses have suffered as Google uses its 90% internet search engine market share which essentially makes it a gatekeeper to the internet to censor small websites from its search results. This allows them to FORCE small businesses to buy extortionate Adwords ads just to be seen.

    The Wall Street journal has highlighted Googles hypocrisy by revealing that the company paid academics at various universities $5000-$400,000 to publish fake research in support of it market dominance in an effort to trick people into thinking that its monopoly is not anti competitive.

    During the Obama administration Obama was basically bought by Google after the company heavily funded both of Obama’s presidential campaigns and gave the democrats millions. Google visited the whitehouse more times than any other company in history and lobbied hard to implement legislation such as the net neutrality laws that allow Google to censor websites online without recourse.

    Googles currently being investigated around the world for many different anti trust investigations that focus on Google using its dominance to harm competition. In the EU Google has been fined a record €2.7 billion for manipulating it search results and harming its competition. In Russia Google was also fined for using it android mobile operating system monopoly to harm a Russian rival search engine yandex by forcing mobile makers to pre-install google products on phones.

    You should not be fooled by googles net neutrality day of action protest. Google does not want to stop internet censorship Google just wants to make sure the current laws stay the same and Google can continue to censor the internet how they see fit.

    Make sure to share this post to let others know about the real threat to the internet!

    Internet giants “Day of action” to protest for net neutrality laws

    Tomorrow Google, Facebook, Amazon, Reddit, Mozilla and other big internet company’s will participate in a day of online protest as part of “Day of Action” against the FCC abolishing unfair net neutrality laws.

    As part of the day of action sites will post videos and blogposts that will try to essentially brainwash people into thinking that net neutrality laws are needed and that President Trump is trying to censor the internet. However the truth is actually the complete opposite. DO NOT BE FOOLED.

    These laws were introduced by the Obama plutocracy and were created to allow big MONOPOLYS such as Google to censor what you see online. These online laws allow big companies to stifle competition and to cement their place as the gatekeepers of the internet. For example Google is constantly penalising websites and manipulating it search results on a huge scale in a effort to bully small businesses online to buy Adwords just to be seen! Only recently google was fined by the EU over €2 billion for harming competition through manipulating it shopping search results. The current net neutrality laws means that Google and other big internet giants to continue to do this because the current laws only apply to cable companies. Company’s such as google lobbied extremely hard bribing the democrat party to implement these laws. Google visited the whitehouse more than any other company during the Obama regime. During Hilary Clintons presidential campaign Google pumped her campaign full of cash and even had Eric Schmidt the CEO of google as part of their campaign team. This is why they are now throwing their toys out of the basket because Trump is getting rid of them.

    New laws should be created to stop these monopolies essentially censoring people’s businesses and freedom of speech! It is time that the internet became more fair and more equal, its time to end these monopolies from dominating our internet!

    Google to be fined by EU for abusing its Android monopoly

    “Don’t be evil” maybe Google’s slogan, but by the looks of recent anti monopoly investigations it would seem that Google has been ignoring their own slogan.

    Google may face yet another big billion dollar fine by the EU. It has been revealed that the EU is putting together a panel of technology experts to judge whether Google used its Android mobile operating system to harm competitors. It is believed that Google did this by only allowing mobile phone designers to be able to use their Android operating system if they include google products such as Google chrome and search built in.

    In Russia google has already had to settle an anti trust investigation and pay watchdogs $7.8 million after being found abusing its android operating system to hurt its rival Russian search engine yandex.

    If the EU does rule that google has abused it’s monopoly Google could face a very big fine coming just a week after Google was fined €2.7 billion for abusing its monopoly on internet search through manipulating its search results to destroy competition and force buisness into buy expensive Google ads just to be seen.

    FairSearch lawyer Thomas Vinje has said that “The long-running case is taking its toll on users and rivals,” adding “A decision would come none too soon. Google is hurting Android users, including by surreptitiously commandeering ever-increasing amounts of personal data,” Vinje said.

    This week the German government has also ruled that internet giants such as google must pay a $50 million fine if they fail to remove hate speech and illegal content from their websites.

    It is evident that outside of the Us, governments are becoming increasingly sick and tired of Googles unregulated power and the negative effect that the internet giant is having on businesses. Google stocks have been falling since the announcement an indication that people are scared of the Google bubble bursting.

    Jobcentre staff to lose their jobs as jobcentres close down

    In an ironic twist job centre staff may have to go to a jobcentre to find a new job. The Department for Work and Pensions have announced that they are going to be shutting down and merging a number job centres across the country resulting in 750 job losses.

    The announcement comes as the government attempts to save money and is expected to save £140 million through closing a number of smaller centres across the country. The announcement will see 70 jobcentres closed and 68 merged with bigger centres and 750 jobcentre staff lose their jobs. It is also understood that 5 new large job centres will be built and 40 job centres will be co-located to other council buildings.

    Many jobseeker claimants will see this announcement as sweet sweet justice as the jobcentre has been known to treat claimants with utter contempt and have sanctioned and stopped millions of peoples benefits forcing them into poverty if they do not agree to work for free to gain “job experience”.

    Jobcentres cost UK taxpayers billions of pounds a year to run, with many arguing that they are a waste of money and do not actually help people find a job. Critics also say that jobcentres are set up for “Tory” ideological reasons rather than to help people and just provide big business free labour and a competitive edge via the jobcentres “work program’.

    The announcement is’nt all good news however, as many jobseeker claimants will be forced to travel further to a job centre on a limited budget to receive their benefits.

    Telling reporters in an interview Ed Sheehan said “I go on it and there’s nothing but people saying mean things. Twitter’s a platform for that. One comment ruins your day. But that’s why I’ve come off it.”

    adding “The head-f**k for me has been trying to work out why people dislike me so much,”

    ‘I am taking some time off Twitter. I can take anything but when scumbags have a forum to abuse people I love I think it’s time to move away.”.

    Ed Sheehan isn’t the only celebrity to call it quits on twitter. In 2012 Adele quit twitter after online trolls threatened her and her new born baby’s life. Comedian John bishop also quit twitter in 2014 after receiving abuse targeted at him and his family.

    AMD releases vega and it disappoints gamers

    AMD have started shipping their first batch of high end vega graphics cards. The vega frontier edition graphics cards are designed with content creators in mind. These new cards come in two different variants the air cooled version priced at $999 and the water cooled version that is priced at $1499. These prices may seem expensive for a graphics card but compared to nvidia’s quadro fx 5600 which is $2,999 this card actually is actually quite cheap.

    Gaming benchmarks have surfaced online by people who have managed to get their hands on this new card. These gaming benchmarks show that the new card matches the performance of nvidia’s 1080 graphics card which was released 18 months ago. This news has left many disappointed. However, the fact of the matter is that the frontier edition was never meant to be a gaming card as it has been designed for content creation such as game development. This means that the features of the card are more optimised towards functions needed by content creators such as rendering, high res models, editing 4K video and particle effect simulation. Despite the poor results in gaming the frontier card actually is quite fast compared to other professional cards. The frontier card also features a gaming mode this has been added to help game developers play test their games instead of having to test the game on another graphics card.

    AMD is set to release its gaming Rx vega cards in early august. These cards are said to be more optimised for games and should be faster…but how much is anyone’s guess as AMD has kept tight lipped on their exact specs and performance. Some are speculating online that the gaming vega cards will not be much faster than the frontier version. Some people are even questioning the actual point of the cards, especially considering that nvidia will be releasing its volta graphics cards in early 2018. By in large it is highly likely that the frontier editions gaming benchmarks will match that of the Rx vega gamings. This is because it is very unlikely that AMD will greatly change the silicon and architecture of the frontier card for their gaming cards due to the huge cost of developing a new GPU. So get ready to be disappointed when the gaming cards are released.

    Hopefully this will not be the case at AMD will be able to pull it out of the bag and release something special as competition is always good when it comes to technology because the consumer always wins at the end of the day.

    Johnny Depp jokes about assassinating Donald Trump

    At a Q&A at the Glastonbury music festival Johnny Depp suggested that he wanted to kill Donald Trump.

    Speaking to the crowd at the Q&A for the screening of his new movie The Libertine, Johnny Depp asked the crowd “Can we bring Trump here?”. The crowd then booed furiously, then Depp replied  “No, no, no, you’ve misunderstood completely.
    “I think Trump needs help,” adding “There are a lot of dark places he could go.”
    “I’m not insinuating anything – by the way, this will be in the press and it will be horrible – but when was the last time an actor assassinated a president?” Depp said.
    Depps comments were met with huge cheers from the mainly liberal crowd.

    Johnnys Depps comments about assassinating Donald Trump come just days after a “left wing” extremist tried assassinating  republican lawmakers practicing for the congressional baseball game in Simpson Park in Alexandria, which left House Majority Whip Steve Scalise with gunshot wounds and needing surgery.

    The Whitehouse has reacted to Depp’s comments by releasing a statement saying “President Trump has condemned violence in all forms and it’s sad that others like Johnny Depp have not followed his lead.”.

    Johnny Depp has since apologised for his “bad joke” by telling people magazine “It did not come out as intended, and I intended no malice. I was only trying to amuse, not to harm anyone,”.

    In my opinion Johnny Depp should never have even joked about harming killing the president not only does Depps comments alienate the millions of people who voted for Trump Depp has a huge amount of influence as a movie icon and many may think it is “acceptable” to kill the president if people like Depp make jokes about it.
