Twitch is now spying on you and your online behavior

Well, I recently made a complaint about YouTube’s new guidelines but we shouldn’t forget that there are more streaming services out there. Twitch getting more and more greedy, including more ads and external third-party connections which reminds me on several malware sites I know and now their latest change really hit me like a punch in my face. Twitch has updated their Community Guidelines because of feedback from the community.

Assassin’s Creed: Origins cracked by CPY

After almost 4 months the latest Assassin’s Creed: Origins game got cracked, which means latest Denuvo version is now pointless. At this point there is no statement from Ubisoft if there planing to remove the copyright protection. The cracker group CPY released a 54GB torrent two days ago. Most new games get cracked by hacker groups within weeks or even days of release at this point. Early last year, a slew of games had workarounds for their Denuvo anti-piracy protection put out in record time, starting with Resident Evil 7. Assassin’s Creed Origins managed to keep its various layers of protection intact for much longer, however, due in part to a newer version of Denuvo than what past games were using.

EU slapped Qualcomm for Apple Collusion

The EU has slapped Qualcomm with a $1.2B fine for colluding with Apple in order to cut out chip competitors. The EU Commissioner for Competition Margrethe Vestager said that Qualcomm paid “billions of dollars” to Apple. Some of this in the form of lowered prices and some through “rebates.” She claims to have documentation showing Apple considering Intel products, but not until the end of the “rebate” Qualcomm agreement.
