T-Mobile is adding Apple Music, ABC and Dish to its unlimited Binge On service

T-Mobile Binge On List
T-Mobile’s Binge On is a convenient loophole that lets customers stream music and video from a long list of providers without it counting against their 4G data limit. The more services that participate in Binge On, the better, so the news that Apple Music, ABC, Disney and a host of other providers are joining today is particularly good. The announcement today brings the list of participating services up to 100. It’s gone from being a select group of video and music services to a who’s who of online video and music.

AMD Announces Polaris-Based Radeon Pro WX Series For Workstation Market, Launches ProRender

radeon non toxic blue

AMD made quite an impact in the mainstream graphics card market with its Polaris-based Radeon RX 480 GPU. Based on AMD’s fourth generation Graphics Core Next (GCN) architecture, the RX 480 features 36 compute units, 2304 stream processors and has a base clock of 1120 MHz. Peak compute performance is rated at 5.8 TFLOPs, and the RX 480 is available in 4GB or 8GB memory configurations.

While the RX 480 may be good enough for gamers looking to get their fix with a few rounds of DOOM or Rise of the Tomb Raider, graphics professionals are a more discerning group that wants hardware with drivers certified for use in their tools of the trade: CAD and 3D modeling apps (rather than epic 3DMark benchmark runs). With that in mind, AMD has announced three new professional graphics cards that comprise the new Polaris-based Radeon Pro WX Series.

Safari in iOS 10 Offers Improved Animated GIF Viewing and Stops Noisy Autoplay Videos

safari-iconIn iOS 10, Apple plans to make some changes to the way videos are handled, putting a stop to irritating autoplay videos and offering improvements to animated GIFs. The changes will come in the form of updated policies for “video” elements, as outlined today by Apple software engineer Jer Noble on the Webkit blog

As iOS 8 and iOS 9 users know, an animated GIF encoded using “video” tags requires users to tap on the GIF to play it as a video would play, creating a frustrating user experience. When viewing such a GIF, it’s currently necessary to load the image, tap it to play, and wait for it to be displayed full screen. In iOS 10, the user experience is being simplified.

Going forward, Webkit will allow videos with no audio element or a muted audio element to honor autoplay attributes, so GIFs and videos in this format will no longer require a tap to play automatically. Videos that use the “video playsinline” element will also be able to play inline without the need to enter fullscreen mode.

At the same time, videos that do have an audio element will be automatically paused and will require a user gesture to play, cutting down on irritating advertisements and other spam-type videos. Autoplay video elements will play only when on screen and will pause whenever they are not visible, which will help to preserve battery life.

AMD Unveils Radeon Solid State Storage Architecture And 1TB Radeon Pro SSG For Massive Pro Graphics Datasets

AMD Announces Radeon Solid State Graphics Technology 

At AMD’s latest Capsaicin event, happening right now at the Hilton Anaheim, adjacent to SIGGRAPH, the company just made a handful of major announcements. AMD just revealed a brand-new line-up of Polaris-based Radeon Pro WX series professional graphics cards and that it was not only launching Radeon ProRender (formerly previewed as AMD FireRender), but also making it open source, as part of the GPUOpen initiative. The unveiling of its upcoming AMD Radeon Solid State Graphics Technology and the Radeon Pro SSD, however, could have a major impact on workflows for content creators that manage massive data sets.

We don’t have many deep, technical details of AMD’s Radeon Solid State Graphics Technology just yet, but what we do know is very interesting. AMD is essentially outfitting Radeon Pro SSG cards with relatively large amounts of Solid State Flash Memory, which can allow much larger data sets to reside close to the GPU in an extended frame buffer.
