The first Ultra HD Blu-ray players are already on sale

    I wasn't expecting to see Samsung's UBD-K8500 Ultra HD Blu-ray player on sale until the end of the month, but it's already available at a few stores. USA Today points out that Video and Audio Center in Santa Monica is kicking off sales today, and the store's Facebook page indicates that there are already movies available as well. If that's not close and you feel the need for 4K discs, AVS Forum posters have also found the players in stock at San Diego-area Fry's Electronics stores. Sure, not everyone is feeling the Ultra HD Blu-ray hype, but if you want to be among the first to see that extra resolution and HDR, then it's time to get moving.

      Twitter explains its handling of ISIS-linked accounts

        One way ISIS has distinguished itself from other terrorist organizations is its use of social media to spread news and recruit followers. Now, following Google and Facebook, Twitter is revealing info about what it's doing to stop extremist groups from using the service to get their messages out. According to a story tweeted by its @Policy account, since mid-2015 Twitter has already banned some 125,000 accounts for threatening or promoting terrorist acts. It's also increased the size of its team reviewing those reports, and turned spam fighting tools against the groups to help filter out related accounts that pop up. Since mid-2015, we have suspended over 125,000 accounts for threatening or promoting terrorist acts.

Still, I wonder if it will be enough to counter critics, as the government is pressing for support in battling these accounts, and the widow of a man killed by terrorists is suing the company. Others with beef over the self-congratulation will probably include those targeted by other forms of harassment -- just check out the @TrustySupport spoof account (which was temporarily shut down itself) to see how people feel about the responses they get.
