The three smartphones that can captivate the ratio of price to quality. Here Asus ZenFone 3 – Spider’s Web

For Overwatch messed weekend out with friends, I was late for an important meeting, and then I remembered what it means to unhealthy marathon in front of the console. Production of Blizzard addictive as the purest drug! Terrible disease one more skirmish and another match immediately captivated my immune system. I have only one, but essential BUT …

Mór issue with Overwatch is that it is still half the crude product. This is not the full game! This is not the final production, which should appear on store shelves! Spending 300 gold on the console digital editing (the cheapest option), the client has the right to count on a complete title, rich in possibilities and, above all – having a clear purpose. All this in Overwatch just ran out.

Overwatch 3

writing game reviews, first of all try to watch your wallets.

Putting readers Spider’s Web in the first place, I feel the duty to warn. Overwatch is damn entertaining production, but very incomplete game. in the title of Blizzard’s lack of basic modes and purpose. Sure, the brand manufacturer ensures that all of this will be in the future, and the game will be famously supported extensions and updates. that’s all, however, the future, and we refer to here and now. to the product which today can be purchased at an electronics store, for real money.

What not to write about competitive Battlebornie, its creators managed to give the game meaning and purpose. the title has a campaign narrative. for that focuses on development champions, which unlocks not only cosmetic skin, but also additional skills and modifiers to activate during the battle on the network arena. All this I ran out of the Overwatch.

Overwatch 90

at the time of this writing, the game Blizzard allows you to quickly match online training with AI and match with weekly changing modifiers. that’s it! All the characters are unlocked. All the skills acquired. What is lacking seasons missing some leagues. Although we can advance from level to level (my current is 22), are not associated with this no benefits. no, not counting skins, sprays and emotes that draw lots of allocated each level packages. Pure cosmetics.

on the one hand, this allows immediate jumping into the game the same rights as other players. on the other, spending long hours in front of screen does not reward us in any concrete way. there is no weapons development or skills. there feel no prestige. Win, lose, level 25 or level 45 – it has absolutely no meaning. The game does not have embodied purpose beyond noncommittal logging in to servers and is played a few matches.

Overwatch 55

it is a pity. Blizzard has created a really interesting, colorful, distinctive characters that are just begging for a campaign narrative. even at this in a competitive Battlebornie. I realize that the developers promised the introduction of leagues, but the update will no sooner than a month. that’s all we should get on release.

Focusing however on the same mechanics – God, how this Overwatch is unique and addictive!

like other Network shootings, Overwatch places opposite each other two teams, the ongoing battle on a closed arena. Oh, the classic of the genre – sometimes you need to get and keep a point, and at other times then escort precious cargo. Nothing we have not seen in hundreds, if not thousands of other games .

the fun starts when we select their champion. Here shooting draws on the iconic role-playing games. The Overwatch there is a division of functions far beyond the typical class medic, sniper or technique present, for example in Battlefieldzie. More like a team of Baldur’s Gate, where we have a warrior, rogue, priest, mage, druid and barbarian.

Overwatch 32

in the Overwatch each character has a clearly defined objective. the objective, which is the core of the game. while this Battlefieldzie medic primarily fights, and only then reanimates so Overwatch puts tremendous pressure on the performance of their class tasks. the doctor who shoots first and then heals, is Blizzard worth next to nothing.

Understanding roles in Overwatch only key to victory. the game was balanced in such a clever way that each of the 21 unique characters is excellent in the performance of his work, but awful in every other. the so-called tank is to focus the attention and enemy fire. character support must circulate among the allies and influence their stats. Players defensive almost not suitable for attack.

Overwatch 88

Art select the players is a key issue in the Overwatch. Or understand your place, or you’re out of the game.

Solid, but readable introduction of stringent rules allows players to treat unique experience. I must admit that so well played with a network shooting since the launch of the third Battlefield and Splatoona on Wii U. Overwatch is equally shooter, this interactive chess game in which the team must be flexible and real-time put forward counter-proposals for each opponents play.

Overwatch successful wherever fails Evolve or Battleborn. Cooperative gameplay network with a view FPP has never, absolutely never been so addictive. One match after another, time flew, and I was delighted with new characters and their special skills, dialogue lines and their role in the team.

Overwatch 39

Overwatch surprises with every match. I still learn something new. I still get to know new techniques and champions initially considered weak and useless starting to be fiendishly curious and extremely helpful. I am a giant impressed by how deep, as multi-threaded, multi-layered and complex the mechanics that gave us a tray Blizzard. Proper appreciation of this system will last for weeks!

I can also marveled over how rich and colorful universe of preparing us to manufacture.

Each character is unique. it has its character, its style, its agenda and its philosophy. What an amazing, once feel it during the game. the degree of solicitude with which the producers have applied to the champions, it is comparable with that how complicated and refined are the character classes in Diablo. Tale!

What’s unique Overwatch is one of the few games that I wanted to play in Polish, not English. The team responsible for the native language has done an excellent job. They do not just translate the game, but to understand the uniqueness of each of the playable heroes. Issues spoken in our language are just as good, if not better than the originals. A bit like the fairy tales and Disney Piksara – global level sets the standards, but we do it even better.

Overwatch 79

Despite my admiration, you have to remember that Overwatch is not a game for everyone. Humility, rip, understanding their role and their place – all the tough demands posed by the players of Blizzard. but when you understand what the game, immediately soak into this production. You will be her addicted, and “fast meczyk before work” and the “last start before going to sleep,” will enter your bloodstream, it pockets the 10 level of experience.


  • Amazing mechanics and the perfect balance of gameplay
  • Great, the key to victory in the division of roles
  • Each of the 21 characters is a small work of art
  • the colorful, lively, colorful binding
  • the graphics are simple, but that does not bother
  • Excellent Polish language version. Maybe even better than the English
  • speed join teams and selection of players
  • great looking skin, which is more than a reversal of colors
  • the promise of a reliable and long-term support by Blizzard


  • In this game simply lacks the express purpose!
  • Prizes are not proportional to the made progress and time spent in front of the screen
  • Where are my league? Where’s my single player campaign?
  • Little, very little content on start
  • Extreme impoverishment of game modes
  • Blizzard has a very interesting universe, but insufficient use them narratively
  • Management team on consoles would be much better

It’s amazing that Blizzard created the first title of the FPS in its history, and already sets the trends in terms of gameplay, balance and care detail. Since we have an excellent mechanics, remains build her a great game. This is still my Overwatchu missing.

GeForce 1080 GTX FE – problem with the fan – FrazPC.pl

 When buying a reference model the GeForce 1080 GTX 500 PLN more expensive than the versions of partners Nvidia , you can expect a higher quality of performance that would justify this difference. It turns out, however, that the first users of the new flagship green teams are faced with quite a common problem of uneven fan.

  GTX 1080 Founders Edition uses a known cooling system NVTTM, and people who have purchased this model, complaining about all kinds of forums (including the official GeForce Forums) a problem with the fan, which irregularly accelerates the speed of 2000 RPM to 3000 RPM, and sudden return to a resting state. This is particularly inconvenient when the play not only for example. Moved through the system since if this involves a considerable increase of noise.

 It was established that the sudden acceleration and slowing down of the fan are not associated with an increase in GPU temperature or increasing its clock speed, otherwise you can not stabilize their work even programs such as EVGA Precision.

 So we are waiting for an official reply on this matter and we hope that he can find a quick solution to this problem.

Google has developed a plan for universal block content in Flash in its browser Chrome; it can enter into force by the end of this year – said American Technology website The Verge. read more

The submarine cable will consist of eight pairs of optical fibers, making Marea will be the fastest combination of this type running along the bottom of the Atlantic. The project will also address the Spanish telecommunications company Telefonica.

Media recall that this is another Internet project, in which the largest IT companies join forces. In this way, they want to ensure a greater control over the information generated by their services. In the past, Facebook and Microsoft invest in similar projects and their projects realized or Google and Amazon.

In a joint statement made it clear that this project will help reduce the costs, and accelerate the speed of data transfer, so effectively they operate, eg. cloud services.

On Monday night, Mars will be closest to Earth – Virtual Poland

  On Monday evening (May 30), Mars will be the closest planet more than a decade. Astronomers are encouraged to look to the Red Planet, which in the coming weeks will be clearly visible in the evening sky practically all night.

 The smallest distance between the planets will be 75 279 709 km. It is the closest for more than ten years, but not a record. After a little over two years will be called. great opposition of Mars and then the smallest distance will be about 57 million kilometers away.

 Orbital period of the Earth around the sun lasts one year. On the other hand, Mars needs to go round its orbit of 687 days. This means that at a little over two years, our planet is catching up with Mars and the two bodies are almost in one line, on the same side of its orbit relative to the sun.

 In this period there are good conditions for observing Mars – it is the brightest lights and most of the night. For lovers of amateur astronomy with telescopes it is also an opportunity for easier to spot various structures on the surface of the planet, for example. Polar caps. When Mars is near, it shields the planet seen through a telescope is also greater. Currently, it has a diameter of 18.6 seconds arc.

 In the coming days, Mars will be visible in the evening quite low on the southern horizon as glowing red-orange glow bright object. By the way wypatrywania Mars can also see two other planets. A little to his left (east) a little less shining Saturn. On the other hand, on the opposite side of the sky, on the west, above the horizon than Mars, the planet Jupiter shines brightly.

 In identifying Mars may help also the following tip: below Mars and Saturn can be seen fairly bright star Antares (but weaker than Mars and Saturn), which also has a glow in a color similar to Mars. Together Mars, Saturn and Antares form the vertices of the triangle.

 For many years, Mars is a goal of intense research by scientists. Currently we are circling around him or rides on the surface of several automated probes, in particular the European probe Mars Express orbital, the US probe Mars Odyssey, Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, MAVEN, American rovers Curiosity and Opportunity, as well as the Indian Mars Orbiter Mission (Mangalyaan). On the way to the planet is in turn orbital probe Trace Gas Orbiter and lander Schiaparelli (mission Euro-Russian).

Mars Reconnaissance. Is the red planet hides a life? – Policy

No wonder. Posted in the direction of Mars in 2005, Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (Mars orbit is 10 years) is the most advanced spacecraft ever was sent to the Red Planet, which is to gather information about her more than all previous missions combined. MRO is so packed with sensors, detectors, cameras and all kinds of analyzers that can virtually explore all. Main objective: to investigate the climate history of Mars, look for traces of water and choose the best places for future manned missions.

I MRO reveals. The last days of a rash of recent information about Mars. Let’s choose the most interesting ones.

Special subsurface radar MRO examined thoroughly the biggest and the northern polar ice cap. It has been found in the belt of 100 to 300 meters inside the cap, a clear, apparently fairly quickly resulting accumulation of ice water. Scientists believe that it is evidence of the existence of ice ages on Mars, similar to those that existed on Earth. Accumulation was created just before the end of the last ice age on Mars, roughly 370,000 years ago. Genesis Martian ice ages is very similar to Earth.

On the other hand, another group of researchers observed on the northern plateaux of the planet traces of giant tsunami waves that arose after hitting the ocean substantial Mars meteorites. The first hit 3.4 billion years ago. Founded wave engraved in the land Martian powerful mark on the length of 150 km, then stepped back. The second meteorite struck far and a few million years later. He carved a similar mark, but not retreated because froze. It was a period of rapid cooling to Mars. This is another proof that Mars had the ocean, where it was heavily salted water.

A third discovery made by researchers from NASA and the SETI Institute is another confirmation of the existence of liquid water ocean. If Mars was water under its surface (although the ocean is gone) must be many hydrocarbons and clay, rich in calcium and iron. And indeed, traces of such deposits had discovered in many places on Mars, among others, in the pool or in the crater Huygens Lucaya.

This discovery indicates that Mars once was much wetter than it is today. And warmer.


They fought with Google six years. The court issued a judgment – Gazeta.pl

A study on illegal software are executed by BSA every 2-3 years. Through archival particular, we know that in 2007 in Poland was 57% “pirates”, in 2011, this percentage dropped to 53%, in 2013 was the 51%.

The organization, which represents software developers and their behalf combats piracy calculated that in 2015 the value of illegally used Poland application was 447 million dollars. in comparison to 2013 is lower than the sum of 89 million dollars. BSA did not disclose whether the amount of the increased revenues the software industry.

Poland stands still heavily from European standards – the average in the EU countries use the 29% illegal software. Infamous leader when it comes to piracy, the Asia-Pacific region, where no license is 61% application. At the other extreme were the United States with 10% of illegal software users.

IDC was tempted by an indication of the reasons why the Poles are increasingly willing to pay for the programs you use. These include, among other things constant, low prices of personal computers, a relatively long lifetime of the equipment purchased, and less interest in fixed składakami – branded notebooks are delivered with pre-installed operating system.

BSA in turn leaves no doubt – decrease piracy is not the result of good will among buyers software. Bartlomiej Witucki, a representative of BSA | The Software Alliance in Poland believes that the lower prevalence of illegal software is a weave of 3 factors.

First, it is important increase the effectiveness of legal action conducted under the Anti-Piracy BSA in Poland, as evidenced by the numerous settlement serious amount, including one of the companies in the amount of one million dollars. it is also important that the appointment and operation of each command provincial and at at Police Headquarters, departments to combat cybercrime. the third element is the observed increase in the level of management software, although I must admit that Polish companies, which are ready to meet the requirements of ISO / IEC 1977-1 is not much.

it is worth noting that according to the plans prosecutor national experts in cybercrime to appear also in each prosecutor’s office. Among their tasks will probably prosecute users and sellers of illegal software.

Theirs will be a lot of work, because the Polish pirates have momentum – in March 2016 closed in our country illegal factory of Windows, which managed to bring counterfeiters than 3 million zł income.

When did you start to use legal software?

FirePro S7100X – a new graphics card AMD virtualization – wirtualnemedia.pl

AMD FirePro S7100X is a product with hardware virtualization compliant PCIe SR-IOV (Single Root I / O Virtualization). Provides a solution for use in graphics virtualization, which offers the possibility of typical workstations up to 16 users.

AMD MxGPU allows optimum use of the possibilities of virtualization while maintaining compliance with the SR-IOV, allowing users to integrate existing ecosystems supervisors (hypervisors).

AMD FirePro S7100X received a compact form with a TDP of 100W, making it suitable for deployment in blade servers.

the card supports up to 16 users through virtualization solutions, including VMware, Solidworks, Siemens NX and Solid Edge. Enables controlled access hardware cycles to ensure predictable QoS (quality of service).

AMD MxGPU a virtualization solution graphics card, which offers the functionality of the card each virtual instance. This enables service graphics APIs such as DirectX or OpenGL, or APIs like OpenCL computing, which in turn makes the applications can be run in a virtual layer while maintaining the same code working. The use of native drivers AMD FirePro simplifies configuration and management. In addition, you do not need any special profiles, so that administrators can flexibly add and remove virtual machines. MxGPU maintains the integrity of the data on the virtualized operating systems and applications in these conditions through the use of hardware isolation memory. In this way, one virtual machine is not possible to access the data of another virtual machine.

The first company which introduced the server equipped with the new graphics cards AMD is Hewlett Packard Enterprise. Model HPE ProLiant WS460c Gen9 is no longer available.

According to Sismandis, there are two written sources which indicate that the ashes of Aristotle were his death imported from Euboea to Stagira by the people of his hometown. There, in 1996. Archeologist discovered the tomb, and the traces found there are, according to him indicate that this is the burial place of Aristotle.

The outdoor tomb is in the shape of the dome of the hill and is located in the center of Stagira, near the agora . This location indicates that it was a public place. The floor inside the tomb is covered with marble slabs, which dates back to the Hellenistic times. Directly in front of the tomb is the altar.

In Poland, there are fewer pirate Programming – Polish Radio

This is the best result in our history, as in previous studies, the level of illegal software was with us respectively 57, 53 and 51 percent.


It’s good, but …


It is better, but it is still much worse than in the European Union, where on average only 29 percent of software used in computers, software illegal – said PR24 Bartlomiej Witucki representative BSA, The Software Alliance in Poland.


– There is a reason for satisfaction. A decrease of 3 percentage points, this is the highest decline noted by Poland. At the same time it is the highest drop in this year’s study. This shows that there is a tendency to reduce the number of illegal software in Poland. The trend continues, we hope that this will not change. Have broken the psychological barrier of 50 percent .. It is said that above this value are the country where piracy is a problem, here are the countries that are already in this area more legal software – explains the guest Polish Radio 24.


The courts have changed the approach


There are several reasons to improve the situation – adds the expert. – An important element will be the establishment of the department to combat cybercrime at each major command. It turns out that these departments in many cases excellent work with departments to combat economic crime. It seems that this is one of the factors. The second factor is a significant decision of the court, which awarded damages worth $ 1 million, it was very specialized software and quite expensive – lists the expert.


The estimated total market value of illegal software used in Poland last year amounted to $ 447 million, with over 100 million less than in 2013.


At the head of the ranking of countries where illegal software is the least of years are countries such as the US, Japan, Germany and the Scandinavian countries.
