Implications Of Thinking In Blocks Instead Of Blobs

Implications Of Thinking In Blocks Instead Of Blobs Implications Of Thinking In Blocks Instead Of Blobs Leonardo Losoviz 2018-11-20T13:00:59+01:002018-11-21T08:45:41+00:00 Gutenberg is a JavaScript-based editor (more specifically, it is a React-based editor), which will soon transform the experience of creating content for WordPress and (on an upcoming stage when Gutenberg is transformed into a site builder) the experience of creating WordPress sites. Gutenberg, the site builder, will demand a different way of thinking how to lay the foundations of a website. In what we can already call the “old” model, WordPress sites are created by giving structure through templates (header.php, index.php, sidebar.php, footer.php), and fetching the content on the page from a single blob of HTML code. In the new model, the page has (React) components placed all over the page, each of them controlling their own logic, loading their own data, and self-rendering. To appreciate the upcoming change visually, WordPress Read the full article…

Valve is discontinuing the Steam Link, at least the hardware part

Valve has quietly updated the Steam page for the Steam Link. The message says that Valve is discontinuing the Steam Link. The device will become unavailable once all units have been sold. When Valve introduced the Steam Link in 2015, your TV setup was completely different. Google, Amazon and Apple had just released Android TV, the Fire TV and tvOS. Smart TVs weren’t so smart. In other words, you had no way to install an app and run it on your TV. The Steam Link was a tiny box with an HDMI port, USB ports, an Ethernet port, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and more. It could only do one thing — you could connect the Steam Link to a Steam client running on a powerful computer and play games on a different screen. Even before the Nintendo Switch, companies were thinking about ways to play the same game in multiple ways. And Read the full article…

With investors knocking, PlayVS opens the door to a $30M Series B

PlayVS, the company bringing esports infrastructure to high schools across the country, has today announced the close of a $30.5 million Series B financing. The round was led by Elysian Park Ventures, the investment arm of the L.A. Dodgers, with participation from five existing investors, including New Enterprise Associates, Science Inc., Crosscut Ventures, Coatue Management and WndrCo. New investors also joined in on the round, including Adidas (the company’s first esports investment), Samsung NEXT, Plexo Capital, as well as angel investors such as Sean “Diddy” Combs, David Drummond, DST Global partner Rahul Mehta, Michael Dubin and others. It’s certainly worth noting that PlayVS raised a $15 million Series A just six short months ago. Founder and CEO Delane Parnell explained that this Series B was an opportunistic raise, as the company received a lot of inbound from investors to get a slice of the next round. “This gives us much Read the full article…

Hearthstone: See a Brand New Rastakhan’s Rumble Card

Rastakhan’s Rumble is almost upon us, and the set is shaping up to be a huge amount of fun. The broad theme takes us to the Gurubashi Arena (which World of Warcraft players on the Horde side would be familiar with), and to a contest presided over by Rastakhan, king of the Zandalari, and ruler of the great troll empire. Long story short, it’s an excuse for trolls and other warriors to battle it out for glory. Each class has its own “team”, and these are centred around their “Loa” or beastly deities. Rogue, for instance, are known as Gral’s Sharks, named after their Loa – Gral, the Shark. Each Loa is a legendary minion and accompanied by a Spirit that strengthens what that Loa is attempting to do. The Rogue companion card, Spirit of the Shark, obviously works well the turn before Gral, allowing you to trigger its battlecry twice, not Read the full article…

Battlefield V Review

Welcome, Battlefield fans! Now that we’ve taken in-depth looks at the single-player and multiplayer sides of Battlefield V, it’s time for our final overview and verdict. For the full picture, make sure to check out each part. While it’s absolutely a massive and addictive shooter, there’s little question in my mind that Battlefield V launched well before it was ready. Between the brevity and lack of gameplay variety in the single-player campaign, the problems that arise when playing anything other than Conquest on certain maps, and perhaps most troubling of all, the frequent and sometimes game-breaking bugs are all issues that seem like they could be solved with a couple more months of development time.

We’re throwing Lightroom into the mix as well, and comparing Gimp vs Photoshop vs Lightroom. There are plenty of professionals who use Gimp for their daily work. Let’s face it, switching to the free app is worth it when you can save $180 a year otherwise spent on an (entry level) Adobe CC subscription. But is it realistic to consider Gimp as an option? Can Gimp really do all the things Photoshop or Lightroom does? Is Lightroom better than Photoshop? We’ll be answering those questions and more. Main Differences Between The Apps In a nutshell, there are five main differences between the apps. Gimp is free while Photoshop and Lightroom come with a premium subscription plan.
