Although there are no plans including a big budget Doctor Who movie, by 2017 we will see Doctor Who’s famous robot dog, K9 in cinemas. The script of the movie was written by Bob Baker, one of the original creators of K9. As a Doctor Who fan you most definitely know something about this famous robot dog that can travel through dimensions and space.

K9 firstly appeared on an 1977 episode called ‘The Invisible Enemy’ and popped up from time to time alongside Doctor Who’s travels. Of course it is a shame that there won’t be a movie revolving around our beloved Doctor but fans are excited to see K9 as the star of the movie.

According to the original press release: “The film will be full of dashing heroes and heroines, Androids, monstrous Aliens and an ultimate foe who will also be familiar to Doctor Who fans everywhere; the megalomaniac OMEGA.” Apparently the Time Lords hero Omega, also one of the founders of Time Lords and Galifrey, will feature in the movie.

This doesn’t come as a surprise, as the movie seems to be about past series of Doctor Who, allowing fans to learn more about Doctor Who’s Universe before Galifrey has been lost in space and time.

Fan’s are stoked to see this new improved, high-tech looking K9 on screens and maybe we will get a glimpse of Doctor Who portrayed by Peter Capaldi. It would make sense that ‘K9-TIMEQUAKE’ movie will be released in 2017 when K9 celebrates its 40th birthday.

Who doesn’t enjoy listening to a good story. Personally I love reading about the people who inspire me and what it took for them to achieve their success. As I am a bit of a self confessed tech geek I think there is no better way to discover these stories than by reading every day some articles or the newspaper . My bookcases are filled with good tech biographies, they remind me that anyone can be a success. So even if you come from an underprivileged part of society or you aren’t the smartest person in the room we all have a chance to reach the top. The same message shines in my beliefs. All it takes to succeed is a good idea, a little risk and a lot of hard work and any geek can become a success. VENI VIDI VICI .

Facebook intends to eliminate its news tab in the United States and Australia

Meta is seeking to eliminate the news tab on Facebook in the U.S. and Australia to avoid news media-related restrictions and financial complications. The business announced today that it will discontinue the product in April 2024.

Meta ceased Facebook News in the UK, Germany, and France last year, stating a desire to focus resources on its most valued products and services. The current announcement has a similar tone.

Facebook reported an 80% decrease in the usage of Facebook News in Australia and the U.S. over the past year.

Our investments are being realigned to focus on the products and services that are most valued by people as part of a continuous effort. The corporation must prioritize its time and resources on content that users express interest in, such as short-form videos.

Meta stated that news comprises less than 3% of the stuff that users see on their feed. Users are unlikely to notice this devaluation. Publishers have experienced a decline in referral traffic from Facebook over time.

Facebook News’ discontinuation is a result of regulatory actions and Meta’s decision to stop investing in new projects. Legislation in Australia and Canada requires platforms to compensate online publishers for their material. In August of last year, the business began restricting access to news links for users in Canada.

Meta clarified that today’s announcement will not impact the company’s existing agreements with publishers until they expire. In Australia and the U.S., individuals can share news on their feeds, while publishers can control their sites and add links.

The corporation stressed that it has no intention of investing in new news-related goods.

“To maintain our focus on developing products and services that enhance user interaction, we will refrain from forming new business agreements for conventional news content in these regions and will not introduce any new Facebook offerings tailored for news publishers going forward,” the statement declared.

Meta has reduced its focus on continuously investing efforts in news. Last year, Instagram CEO Adam Mosseri stated that the business would not prioritize news content on Threads, a social network introduced by Instagram.

For individuals who may not recall, the Year 2000 Problem, commonly referred to as the Y2K scare, was a thrilling period of chaos experienced in the late 90s. There was widespread concern about a potential catastrophic computing disaster due to discrepancies in dating systems. Today, we had the opportunity to experience some unexpected events as EA and Square Enix faced technical difficulties due to the leap year, causing their games to be temporarily unplayable.

Players of EA’s Sports WRC encountered a problem on the 29th where they couldn’t start the game because of a timezone glitch. The issue was promptly fixed, but users had to adjust their system settings for the next day to play. Meanwhile, Square Enix is facing challenges, with the problem only impacting Nintendo players and not PlayStation users. The Theatrythm Final Bar Line failing to start up ruined the release of Final Fantasy VII Rebirth.

In Helldivers 2, players will find themselves in need of additional firepower to spread freedom across the galaxy. Arrowhead Game Studios announced that armored mechs will be included in the game for free shortly after its release. Leaked gameplay footage on social media suggests that heavy armor support is on its way.

IGN showcased a few clips, with the first one being shared by Redditor fozzye18, featuring a Helldiver piloting a mech equipped with what appears to be twin-linked autocannons. It’s important to note that in another clip shared by Redditor Klyka, we witness a mech equipped with a gatling gun and rockets, hinting at the possibility of various strategy versions for these machines.

A clip from TikTok ponders the possibility of a different outcome at the famous Malevelon Creek, where the Helldivers community faced a significant defeat against the Socialist Automatons.

Mechs… enjoy
