Doom Turns 21 and John Romero Celebrates by Showing How It Was Made – Gallery

One of the ancestors of the first-person shooter genre, Doom, is turning 21 today, and its creator John Romero is sharing a ton of unseen artwork from its heyday.

Canonical Intends to Keep Its Notifications Without User Interaction on Unity 8

The Unity desktop environment has a simple and rather ineffective system notification mechanism and it looks like that's not going to change, not even with the arrival of Unity 8. The only good thing that you can say about the system notifications in Ubuntu is that it's there, but beyond that, it's pretty ineffective to say the least. It's been this way for quite some time and it's a design choice made by the developers. They haven't changed it in years and they don't seem to have any plans t...

OphionLocker, the New Ransomware on the Block

A new piece of crypto-malware has been discovered in the wild, distributed through an exploit kit in drive-by downloads. Named OphionLocker, the ransomware relies on elliptic curve cryptography (ECC) to encrypt the data on the affected computer. ECC is a public-key cryptographical approach, which is based on two keys, one for locking the data, called public, and one for decrypting the files, called private, generated from the public one.

Microsoft Is Giving Away a Ton of Free Music You Might Actually Want

Microsoft Is Giving Away a Ton of Free Music You Might Actually Want


Like free things? Microsoft is giving away 100 albums until December 15, in MP3 form. You just to download Microsoft's Music Deals app (on a Windows machine), and the albums are yours for the taking.


You have to make a Microsoft account to use the app if you don't already have one, but it's worth it. A lot of times, giveaway content tends to be kinda crappy, but this is not one of those times. There's a lot of music available people would be happy to pay for. You can get albums from Kanye West, The Who, The Rolling Stones, Frank Ocean, Kedrick Lamar, Florence and the Machine, and a ton of other artists. (There's also a Justin Bieber album available so the quality control isn't perfect, but overall it's a stacked giveaway.)


Yes, the Pirate Bay is down and we really shouldn't be pirating music anyways. If you want to round out your digital music collection in a legal but cheap way, this is a good opportunity. [Microsoft via The Verge]
