Star Wars Episode 1: Racer and X-Wing will be re-released on modern platforms

You’ll soon be able to get some of your favorite childhood Star Wars games like Star Wars: X-Wing, Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast and Star Wars: Podracer, on modern platforms as well as a few on their original consoles. 

The re-releases of these games will be brought to you by Limited Run Games, a company that specializes in small-batch physical releases of classic or hard-to-find titles. The deal was announced during the company’s press conference and then reaffirmed in a Tweet on the company’s Twitter account, though it’s still not clear when they’ll come out.

Unfortunately, for both better and worse, these games aren’t remasters – i.e. they’ll still have the original graphics and character models. That will help these games maintain their historical accuracy, but might mean that they don’t hold up very well, especially since some source back to the early 90s.

The first of these games to get the ol’ re-release is Star Wars: Bounty Hunter

Hackers steal traveler photos and license plates from US Customs

A representative didn’t tell TechCrunch how much data had been taken, or how many American citizens were caught up in the breach. The agency said alerted Congress and said it was “closely monitoring” the subcontractor’s associated work.

CBP said that none of the info had been spotted on either the dark web or the public internet, although the company in question might have had at least one leak. Officials inadvertently mentioned the border crossing tech company Perceptics in their document title, and a Register report in late May indicated that data from the firm was available for free on the dark web. It’s not certain if that info is associated with the CBP’s breach.

The incident underscores a common problem with database security: it’s only as safe as the weakest link in the chain. If a contractor leaves data vulnerable, it doesn’t matter how airtight the government’s own practices are. And that raises concerns about plans for  [...]  read more

Audi Recalls Some E-Tron SUVs Over a Battery Issue

Audi has voluntarily recalled some of its first electric vehicles, over battery issues that could cause fires, though none have yet been reported. The recall affects 1,644 E-Tron electric SUVs, only 540 of which have made it to customers. The German automaker declined to disclose sales figures for the Tesla challenger, but said in April that 20,000 had made advanced reservations for the E-tron.

Aarian Marshall covers autonomous vehicles, transportation policy, and urban planning for WIRED.

According to Audi, the problem stems from a faulty grommet seal, which sits in the vehicle’s wiring harness between the charge port and the battery. In at least five vehicles sold worldwide, the grommet has allowed moisture to seep into the battery, risking a short circuit or even a fire. (Neither actually happened.) The E-tron system monitors the battery for moisture, and Audi says a yellow battery warning light should appear if the vehicle’s sensors find something has gone wrong inside.

Recalls, and especially voluntary recalls, are far from unusual: More than 42.6 million [...]  read more

Illegittimo l’arresto di Marco Carta. Per il giudice «le prove sono eteree»

«Sospetti eterei»

«L’unico teste oculare — si legge nel provvedimento con riferimento alla testimonianza dell’addetto alla sicurezza del grande magazzino — ha descritto un comportamento anteriore ai fatti che ha giudicato sospetto, ma gli elementi di sospetto sono del tutto eterei, inconsistenti: è normale che due acquirenti si guardino spesso attorno all’interno di un esercizio commerciale di grande distribuzione; l’ipotesi che essi stessero controllando se erano seguiti da personale dipendente è formulata in modo del tutto ipotetico e vago». Inoltre, «il fatto che i due coimputati si siano recati in un piano diverso per provare le maglie è compatibile con il proposito di trovare un camerino di prova libero, posto che entrambi hanno affermato che grande era l’affollamento e che lo stesso scontrino in atti conferma che era giorno di offerte speciali, cosiddetto “black friday”.

Per il magistrato, è rilevante anche il fatto che nemmeno l’addetto alla vigilanza [...]  read more

AMD Zen 2 specs, price and release date: all about AMD’s newest processor tech

Over the last couple years, AMD has been coming out with some of the best processors (CPUs) on the market, and it doesn’t look like it plans to slow down any time soon. Back at CES 2019, AMD announced its Zen 2 architecture, trimming the manufacturing process down to 7 nanometers (nm), and promising greater performance and efficiency. 

Then, at Computex 2019, AMD pulled the veil off of its Ryzen 3rd Generation processors. These chips took advantage of the smaller manufacturing process, bringing a 12-core, 24-thread processor to the mainstream at less than half the cost of Intel’s 12-core HEDT chip. 

And, if that wasn’t enough, Microsoft took the stage at its E3 2019 keynote, saying that the system-on-a-chip powering the next Xbox, Project Scarlett, is using Zen 2 cores and AMD Navi graphics. Zen 2 is on a roll, and we haven’t even seen what AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3rd Generation can do yet. 

There is so much more to Zen 2, so we decided it was time to dive in and explore [...]  read more
