Last week, BioWare released official trailers for two of Dragon Age: Inquisition's followers, Vivienne and The Iron Bull. This of course led to the assumption that the remaining seven followers would be getting their own trailers leading up to the game's release. Well, that still seems on course, as today we get number three: Varric.

Dragon Age: Inquisition will launch on November 18 in North America and November 21 in Europe for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360. The Standard Edition costs $59.99 for all platforms, while a Deluxe Edition is available for $69.99 and includes the following bonus content: Flames of the Inquisition Armor, Flames of the Inquisition Armored Mount, Skyhold Throne, Red Hart Halla, Bog Unicorn, and the digital soundtrack. Pre-ordering either version grants you some nice fiery weapons from the Flames of the Inquisition Arsenal.

GT Advanced Technologies, a maker of sapphire furnaces that supplied sapphire material to Apple for the latter's iPhone screens, has accused Apple of pulling a "bait and switch", which resulted in GT Advanced filing for bankruptcy last month. GT Advanced COO Daniel Squiller claims that Apple offered his company its largest sale ever, but then changed the terms of the agreement too late to pursue other avenues. According to Squiller, the original deal was for Apple to purchase 2,600 sapphire growing furnaces, which GT Advanced would operate on behalf of Apple. However, after months of negotiation, Apple changed the deal, instead lending GT Advanced money to build the furnaces and grow the sapphire, then sell it exclusively to Apple below market value. Since GT Advanced was unable to pursue deals with other smartphone makers during the negotiations, the company was forced to accept this new deal.

Apple is, of course, denying these allegations, claiming that GT Advanced was eager to make a deal. In its court filing, Apple stated, "These statements are intended to vilify Apple and portray Apple as a coercive bully." Furthermore, in November of last year, one month after that final deal was inked, GT Advanced CEO Tom Gutierrez told analysts that the company was "very pleased" with the deal.

Though most solar cells we are familiar with today rely on silicon, many groups around the world are developing solar cells based on polymers. The change in material can allow for a number of advantages, including drastically reduced costs. Researchers at North Carolina State University and Hong Kong University of Science and Technology have recently found a new way to produce polymer solar cells more cheaply while also setting a new efficiency record.

To create this variety of polymer solar cells, one starts with a mixture of a polymer donor and a fullerene acceptor, to which a solvent is added until the mix becomes a liquid. At this point the liquid is spread out on a surface, and once the solvent evaporates, the liquid solidifies, leaving clumps behind. The researchers discovered that the size of these clumps impacts the efficiency of the solar cell, and that these sizes are temperature dependent. The researchers also substituted many of the fullerenes to push the efficiency to 10.8%, past the published 9.8% record.

While this control over efficiency is definitely important, the researchers also found that this efficiency could be achieved in thick films. This means that mass production methods, such as slot die casting and roll-to-roll processing, can be used to, as opposed to this with special thickness control.

It was revealed on Twitter by Telltale Games yesterday that the upcoming Game of Thrones: A Telltale Games Series would be told in six episodes rather than the usual five from other Telltale games. Telltale announced today that the game will follow the lesser known House Forrester, bannermen to House Glover and loyal to the Starks. The title of the first episode, Iron From Ice, are the house words of the Forresters and stems from the belief that "the adverse conditions and unforgiving landscape of the North only makes them stronger." The events of the series will take place between the end of Season 3 and beginning of Season 5 of the HBO television show Game of Thrones. In another twist, gamers will control five different members of House Forrester with the decisions made by one character having the potential to influence the stories of other characters.

President of the United States Barack Obama has released a statement and plan detailing his support for net neutrality. At the center of his plan is the recommendation that the Internet be classified as a basic utility by the FCC, which would result in "no blocking, no throttling, more transparency and no paid prioritization." The issue of net neutrality has been a hot topic lately and the impact of the issue has been felt by companies such as Netflix. The core principles of the plan are detailed below:

No blocking. If a consumer requests access to a website or service, and the content is legal, your ISP should not be permitted to block it. That way, every player — not just those commercially affiliated with an ISP — gets a fair shot at your business.

No throttling. Nor should ISPs be able to intentionally slow down some content or speed up others — through a process often called “throttling” — based on the type of service or your ISP’s preferences.

Increased transparency. The connection between consumers and ISPs — the so-called “last mile” — is not the only place some sites might get special treatment. So, I am also asking the FCC to make full use of the transparency authorities the court recently upheld, and if necessary to apply net neutrality rules to points of interconnection between the ISP and the rest of the Internet.

No paid prioritization. Simply put: No service should be stuck in a “slow lane” because it does not pay a fee. That kind of gatekeeping would undermine the level playing field essential to the Internet’s growth. So, as I have before, I am asking for an explicit ban on paid prioritization and any other restriction that has a similar effect.

All information about the plan can be found on the official White House website. For more information on net neutrality and why it is important, take a look at this fun infographic from The Oatmeal.

Talking over someone can be problematic as it makes it difficult for you, or anyone, to hear what is being said. A similar problem exists for wireless technologies, as multiple transmissions cannot be sent and received on the same frequency at the same time. At least, it cannot be done without a radio wave circulator, and now researchers at the University of Texas at Austin have developed a new circulator that could one day fit in our cellphones.

Radio wave circulators work by breaking the symmetry of wave transmission and traditionally have relied on magnetics to do so. These magnets come with the cost of increased size, keeping the devices out of many technologies, and weighing down others. The Texas researchers however have created a smaller radio wave circulator that instead uses a traveling wave, spinning around their device. The prototype they built is just two centimeters wide, but it could potentially be brought down to just microns in size, making integration into smartphones a possibility, especially as it is made of components already found in circuit boards.

By removing the need for larger magnets, this technology could help bring full-duplex functionality to many devices, which means they would be able to transmit and receive on the same frequency, at the same time. This would dramatically improve connection qualities and speeds, without having to use more of the wireless spectrum.

Is Microsoft Resurrecting Battletoads?

Everyone's favorite anthropomorphic toads may be returning! Microsoft filed a trademark for "Battletoads" in the United States on November 5, categorized as "game software". A Microsoft spokesperson told IGN that "Microsoft often acquires various trademarks as part of its ongoing business strategy, but beyond that we have no comment." While that's not exactly a confirmation of a game currently in development, the filing is under Section 1(b), which makes it an "application based on intent to use" – so it seems a safe bet that an official Battletoads game announcement will be made eventually.

Firefox Now Lets You 'Forget' as Mozilla's Browser Celebrates 10 Years

Can you believe it's been ten years since Mozilla Firefox 1.0 first hit the web? The web browsing experience has changed a lot over the years, and it's about to change again if you're an avid Firefox user. In celebration of the ten-year mark, Mozilla has "a special release of Firefox" that adds a few community-sought features. "In October 2014 Harris Poll conducted an online global survey of more than 7,000 adults on behalf of Mozilla. It revealed that 3/4 of respondents (74%) felt that internet companies knew too much about them, and more than half (54%) had done something online they wanted to 'forget'."

Firefox's main new features focus around the results of the survey. The first is the addition of DuckDuckGo as a pre-installed search option. "DuckDuckGo gives you search results without tracking who you are or what you search for. Other engines may use tracking to enhance your search results, but we believe that’s a choice you should get to make for yourself." The other major new feature is Forget. Forget is a simple way of clearing out recent activity without jumping through hoops. "Forget asks you only one: how much do you want to forget? Once you tell Firefox you want to forget the last 5 minutes, or 2 hours, or 24 hours, it takes care of the rest."

Lastly, if you're a web developer or just want to experiement, there's also a new Firefox Developer Edition.

Electronics currently dominate information processing, as all computers rely on them, but for high-speed data transmission, optics are often used for their unbeatable speed. These two technologies do not always play well together, because of the necessary conversion devices. Researchers at the Universities of Surrey, Cambridge, and Southampton have recently discovered how to create pn-junctions in a commonly used glass, which could bring these two technologies closer together than they ever have been.

Amorphous chalcogenides are a kind of glass that are used in CDs and DVDs, because some of them will undergo a phase change from heat. What the researchers found is that it is possible to ion dope them. Such doping would allow for the conduction and control of electrons and positive holes in the material, and even the creation of pn-junctions. Along with the optical properties of the glass, the material could be made into a light source, detector, and guide.

By bringing electronics and optics to the same material, it could be used bring optical information directly to computers, and possibly even all-optical systems. The researchers predict the results of this research could be in computers within ten years.

A trio of upcoming Ubisoft games, Far Cry 4, Assassin's Creed: Unity, and The Crew, had briefly been removed from the gaming platform Steam over the weekend. The games had initially been removed only for users from the United Kingdom but were later removed from the United States store as well. The games were only gone for a few hours before returning to the store and once again becoming available to pre-order. UK gamers appear to still be out of luck, however, and will instead have to purchase the games from other sources such as Uplay or Green Man Gaming.

Electric cars rely on batteries to deliver the power needed to drive around, and while batteries work well for distance, they are less-than ideal for acceleration. Supercapacitors however offer the needed burst for acceleration, but lack the storage potential. Researchers at Queensland University of Technology have recently created a supercapacitor film that can be integrated into car panels, allowing a vehicle to have the advantages of both technologies.

Supercapacitors store energy in the electric field between two electrodes, which allows for rapid charging and discharging, unlike the chemical processes of batteries. That means that supercapacitors can push out the power needed to get a car up to speed and can then be charged in minutes, instead of hours. By integrating them into car panels, which cover a lot of area, the supercapacitors could store enough energy to charge the car's batteries in a matter of minutes. As the energy density of supercapacitors increase and potentially surpass that of batteries, we could see electric cars with ranges of 500 Km, which is comparable to modern, gasoline powered cars.

The researchers predict that their supercapacitor panels could be on cars inside of five years, but it may not just be cars that will use them. Supercapacitor films could also be added to smartphones, allowing them to charge much quicker than batteries allow.

Back in April a vulnerability was discovered in OpenSSL called Heartbleed. This security flaw made it possible for the memories of vulnerable systems to be accessed by anyone. Naturally website administrators were quick to patch their software and remove the flaw, but researchers at the University of Maryland, Northeastern University, and Stanford University have found that they did not do enough.

There were threes to ensuring a website was secured and back under the control of the administrator. The first was obviously to deploy the software fix and 93% of administrators did so within three weeks. The other two steps were to revoke security certificates and issue new ones. According to the researchers, only 13% did both of these steps. Those certificates ensure visitors are going to the authentic site and not something an attacker put up, which is why it is necessary to revoke the certificates that may have been comprised.

The researchers also found that the number of certificate revocations dipped over weekends, displaying the human factor in website security. While these are definitely serious issues, the researchers see this study as an opportunity to improve website security in the future.

Night-vision cameras are great, but that green-hued video doesn't provide much in the way of details, which is important for security cameras. Enter the Sharp LZ0P420A Infrared Color Night-Vision Camera. Sharp claims the LZ0P420A is "the industry's first infrared color night-vision camera capable of capturing color video in pitch-dark (zero lux) environments. Lux refers to the minimum amount of light a camera requires to pick up an image, so zero lux is obviously what you want for a night-vision camera. The new camera uses a night-vision image sensor (CCD) co-developed by Sharp and the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST).

The camera shoots 720p color video at 30 FPS and supports HD-SDI video output. Besides the obvious use as an anti-theft camera, Sharp says it has a broad range of usage scenarios, including monitoring patients in hospitals and nursing homes. Sales begin November 28 with 4,000 units expected to be manufactured monthly.

First-Person Puzzler The Talos Principle Gets a Free Public Test Demo Ahead of December 11 Release

Unveiled during E3 2014, The Talos Principle is a first-person puzzle game from Croteam, the makers of Serious Sam. "In The Talos Principle, players assume the role of a sentient artificial intelligence placed within a simulation of humanity’s greatest ruins and linked together through an arcane cathedral. Players are tasked with solving a series of increasingly complex puzzles woven into a metaphysical parable about intelligence and meaning in an inevitably doomed world." While the game is scheduled to arrive on December 11 for PC (Windows, Mac, and Linux), publisher Devolver Digital has released a free Public Test demo featuring four increasingly difficult complete puzzles.

While the demo is a great way to try before you buy, the purpose is actually to serve as additional stress and compatibility testing prior to launch. "The Public Test initiative for The Talos Principle harkens back to 15 years ago when Croteam released 'Public Test 1' for  Serious Sam, a then unknown game that went on to become a multimillion dollar franchise."

The Talos Principle is currently available for pre-order with a 15% discount, dropping the price down to $33.99 from its usual $39.99. That discount is actually good until December 18. PlayStation 4 and Android versions are also planned, but won't arrive until Q1 2015.

NVIDIA Enjoyed Record $1.23 Billion in Revenue in Q3

$1.23 billion in revenue is a lot for just one quarter; for NVIDIA, it was the company's best quarter ever, up 16 percent over last year. It also puts NVIDIA on pace for its best year ever, as the recorded revenue of $3.43 billion thru the first three quarters is also tops, up 15 percent over last year. Unsurprisingly, a large majority of the Q3 revenue is courtesy of NVIDIA's GPUs, which accounted for $991 million, up 13% from last year. Tegra processor sales brought in only $168 million, but enjoyed an impressive 51% increase over last year. The final piece of the puzzle was $66 million in license revenue from the company's patent license agreement with Intel.
