LG V30 is getting a more powerful ‘Plus’ version

LG’s V30 is expected to be revealed at the end of the month, and given months of leaks, that’s no surprise. What’s more surprising is that LG is rumored to be releasing a ‘Plus’ version too. Before you think LG is making a bigger version of what’s already expected to be a 6-inch device (albeit with tiny bezels), that’s not quite it. It seems LG is taking the same approach it did with the G6, and releasing a Plus version with added functionality.

No Man’s Sky finally looks like the game it was supposed to be

The latest update for No Man’s Sky was unveiled today, and the much-maligned game is finally taking the form it was supposed to have on release. According to the update notes, released today, the “Atlas Rises” update will have co-op play, improved graphics, interface tweaks, terraforming, portals, and “30 hours of new story content.” In any other game, I’d accuse it of compensating for something. In NMS, I just say, “It’s about time.” The introduction of multiplayer is especially encouraging. In case you missed (or have blissfully forgotten) the circus of unfulfilled expectations that swirled around the release of NMS, one of the most cutting…This story continues at The Next Web

Security researchers at FireEye have uncovered an ongoing campaign that remotely steals credentials from high-value guests using Wi-Fi networks

SpaceX and HP Enterprise to send supercomputer to ISS next week

Next week, a SpaceX CRS-12 rocket will launch from Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral. Its payload will include a HP Enterprise (HPE) supercomputer, called the Spaceborne Computer, which will be used to see if off-the-shelf computer components can be built to withstand the harsh conditions of space. Space travel is notoriously brutal to tech. It often shortens the lifespan of hardy Thinkbooks to mere months, forcing NASA to send a regular supply of laptops to the International Space Station, alongside pouches of ready-to-eat chilli con carne and freeze dried ice cream. Consequently, most heavy computing is done on terra…This story continues at The Next Web
