Total Overdose Devs Reveal Faith and a .45

Total Overdose Devs Reveal Faith and a .45 50°
371w ago - Denmark based Total Overdose and Chili Con Carnage developer Deadline Games has announced its latest next-gen shooter, Faith and a .45, promising "an original take on the Great Depression" with its Bonnie and Clyde-esque storyline.

Deadline says the game is a "gritty, cross-country epic" featuring a "heavy focus on characters, co-operative gameplay, road movie storytelling, and cinematic aesthetics."

Faith and a .45 tells the story of "two outlaw lovers destined to go down in history," Luke and Ruby, who will battle "an oppressive enemy force, led by a ruthless, corrupt oilman who's out for their blood."

Though no further details have yet been announced, the company says it will be revealing more on the game to selected publishers at this year's GDC.

Said Deadline CEO Chris Mottes, "Since we at Deadline have our roots in movie production, we value original stories, settings and characters very highly. Our previous games are testament to this, but we believe Faith is going to take our creative might to a whole new level."

Warning on e-government 'risks'

Warning on e-government 'risks' 50°
380w ago - Governments need to do more to ensure they preserve trust as they put more services online, says a report.

Emerging from a European Commission project, it warns that technology could lessen the trust governments have instilled in citizens before now.

Officials must move beyond security measures to reassure people about how they are being treated, it said.

The report comes as the UK government tries to reassure Britons after losing data records for 25 million people.

Trust network

The report was written by a research body, bankrolled by the EC's Information and Society Unit, that is looking at "citizen-centric" e-government.

The cc:eGov unit points out that increasingly technology, often in the form of websites, is the means by which citizens encounter local and central government.

Frank Harris, author of the report, wrote: "People learn to trust others through experience, and through judgement based on both direct and referred experience."

The danger, he warned, was that these interfaces did not engender the same feelings of trust that have emerged via more traditional routes.

He added that to engender trust in electronic channels required much more than the basic requirements of security.

Citizens may...
 

Government funds photonics research at Surrey University

Government funds photonics research at Surrey University 50°
381w ago - The University of Surrey is to lead a five year £5m Government funded study into silicon photonics.

"There is renewed interest in silicon photonics because of the microprocessor interconnect bottleneck," programme leader Professor Graham Reed told EW. "If you do it optically, you get a huge bandwidth."

Although far from an ideal optical material, silicon can transmits light at the telecoms wavelengths of 1550 and 1300nm, and its oxide can be used as a cladding to constrain light. On-chip and chip-to-chip communications are targets.

Surrey with its partners will work on silicon optical modulators, detectors, filters and couplers. "What we are not doing is any light sources, partly because there is already enough heat on a microprocessor," said Reed. "We will bring it in through an optical fibre."

Couplers are particularly important, said Reed, because silicon optical modulators use carriers to alter refractive index, and to shift carriers at GHz the modulator has to be sub-micron - smaller than the core of an optical fibre - which is where the couplers come in.

The aim is generally to improve the technology of silicon photonics, and specifically to make a transmitter and a receiver that are compatible with microprocessor CMOS.

The consortium...
 

PS3 Proof-Of-Concept Buffer Overflow video available

PS3 Proof-Of-Concept Buffer Overflow video available 100°
384w ago - jumbohype has shared a video in the thread linked above of what he labels a PS3 "POC Buffer Overflow".

He has been speaking a bit with CJPC on iRC today regarding a test file so hopefully this will lead somewhere... only time will tell.
