Download Free Need For Speed 4 - High Stakes

Need for Speed: High Stakes (also known asNeed For Speed: Road Challenge in Europe and Brazil) is a 1999 racing video game, developed by Electronic Arts Canada and published by Electronic Arts. It is part of the Need for Speed series, once again featuring a host of exotic sport cars and tracks located in Western Europe and North America.

Career Mode has a chronological set of tournaments that challenges the player to complete a set of 8-car races for trophies to unlock bonus cars and tracks, incorporating a monetary reward system that allows a player to purchase vehicles, performance upgrades as well as repairs while earning cash by racing. In addition, each cup tournament requires that the player compete against one opponent in a "High Stakes" race (only in the PC version, and only after the first tournament). There are more tournaments on the PC version, and they are different from the console one - for example, the PS version separates the Career into two separate modes, Tournament and Special Event.

High Stakes Mode
High Stakes race is a challenge, wherein the winner of the race will obtain the loser's car, while the loser obviously loses his car. On Playstation it is a separate 2-Player mode, which required 2 memory cards inserted and deleted the loser's car immediately after the race to prevent re-loading.

Windows Phone 7: Microsoft's exercise in self restraint

Saturday, March 20, 2010

Mix10 The key difference between Windows Phone 7 and Windows Mobile is not Silverlight, the Windows Marketplace lock-in, nor the disallowing of native-code applications.

Rather, Windows Phone 7 is Microsoft's best effort at creating a user-centric device, something that is actually a pleasure to use. Its existence has everything to do with Apple and the way it has stolen Microsoft's market - in music downloads, in high-end laptops, soon in tablet computers, and of course in smartphones themselves.And why has Apple succeeded? As Microsoft Research principal researcher Bill Buxton told The Reg three years ago, two words: industrial design. His mission in joining the company was to reform it into one that understood the importance of user experience.

It does not come easy. Intellectually, Microsoft gets this message, but its culture and legacy is against it. The company's annual Mix conference held last week in Las Vegas, Nevada, is meant to be design-focused, but there was just as much developer content, such as detailed sessions on the OData protocol. Some attendees complained that it was too much like the Professional Developers Conference held four months earlier. Adobe has a design community, Microsoft has a developer community - and a transition is hard to pull off.

Further, Microsoft has a problem with its core software products such as Office. There is no more hope of Outlook becoming user-centric than there was for the old Windows Mobile. It does not need a dollop of Office Ribbon, it needs complete reconstruction.

Microsoft's dependency on OEM partners, the engine of its growth, also works against its design efforts. I was reminded of this recently when starting a Windows 7 Toshiba Netbook for the first time, fresh out of its box. Windows 7 is meant to be quieter, but the screen soon filled with ugly dialogs competing for attention, mostly from third-parties. It's this kind of thing that drives users to the Mac.

Lip service to innovation

Here's what Microsoft chief executive Steve Ballmer said during the February press launch for Windows Phone 7: "We want to lead and take complete accountability for the end user experience ... have more consistency in the hardware platform, more consistency in the user experience, but still enable [partner] innovation."

"Partner innovation" is generally a disaster for Microsoft.

Ballmer makes a nod towards it as a matter of good public relations, but by locking down both hardware and software, the company is trying to minimize the extent to which OEMs can spoil the design effort.
During Mix10 last week I asked Buxton what influence he had on the design of Windows Phone 7. He said it was mostly the work of others, but it does show the ascendancy of design at Microsoft. "We kinda changed the water that we drink, in the sense that all through the design community within the company we talk, and we have a common goal in terms of trying to bring a certain change of sensibility," he said.

"For me it's not even about the phone, but what's interesting is that it's the first product in the company with critical mass that's embraced this ... it will have an impact on other parts of the company."

Whether or not he was directly involved, Windows Phone 7 does seem to embody many of Buxton's principles, such as the attention given to transitions between states, with attractive flowing animations. "If you don't have as much detail in the transition as you do in the state, you're going to get it wrong," Buxton said at Mix09.

The priority of design is one reason for the limited features in this release, and for that Microsoft is taking heat from developers. No native code, no multi-tasking, no socket support, no local SQL, no communication between applications - the list goes on. Such features may be opened up gradually in future versions, but only if resource usage and user control are protected.

If users love the phone, these limitations will be forgiven. Microsoft is coming from behind though, and rivals including Apple and makers of Android phones will not be standing still while the company tries to catch up.


Royal Navy launches iPhone app

The Royal Navy has become the latest venerable institution to enter the brave new world of Web 2.0 in an attempt to haul itself into the 21st century and attract new members.

The oldest of the Armed Forces demonstrated a variety of interactive technologies at careers fair Jobserve Live held in London this week, including a new iPhone and Facebook application designed to attract and challenge potential recruits.

The application sets a series of challenges which simulate real life situations encountered by Royal Navy Engineer Officers.

Various training exercises and tasks are bundled into five interactive ‘missions’ requiring quick thinking and decision making. Tasks include engine maintenance, preparing for a simulated missile attack or re-wiring radar systems, according to the Royal Navy.

Mike Davis-Marks, Captain Naval Recruiting, said the Royal Navy and Royal Marines are looking for potential recruits who feel that they need a new challenge.

“Launching the iPhone is very exciting for both serving officers and prospective recruits as it is an interactive challenge which is a cut above other recruiting methods,”
he added.

“The app contains the career and benefits campaign messages as well as a link back to the Royal Navy careers website, providing a clear call to action for those interested in joining.”

The Royal Navy is the first of the Armed Forces to exploit the potential of the iPhone, although the US army has an iPhone app.


Google Street View under fire again

Google’s controversial Street View service has been in trouble once again, following the nationwide roll out of the technology a fortnight ago.

The system lets users of Google Maps switch from the traditional birds-eye view to a 360-degree street level view of towns and cities photographed by Google's car-top cameras, with approximately 210,000 miles added to the service with the latest update.

However, according to widespread reports the web giant has been hit by yet more complaints, after its cameras were found to have captured the image of murdered teenager Ashleigh Hall standing outside her home just weeks before she died.

The incident raises yet more questions about the service because even though Hall’s face was blurred out as per Google’s usual privacy policy, she was still identifiable and the image therefore branded “an invasion of our privacy” by the family.

The web giant took down the image when notified but the incident will still be yet another piece of unwanted bad publicity. It has also been criticised this week for identifying the entrance to the secret headquarters of the SAS, which has never appeared before on maps for security reasons, according to reports.

Paul Keetch, MP for the area in which the base is located, is reported as branding Google ‘irresponsible’ and possibly aiding terrorists. However, the web giant has said it will not take the images down in this case.

''Google only takes images from public roads and this is no different to what anyone could see travelling down the road themselves, therefore there is no appreciable security risk,”
read a Google statement.

Firefox zero-day fix set up for 30 March release

Friday, March 19, 2010

Mozilla confirmed the presence of an unpatched flaw in its browser on Thursday, with a post promising to release a fix at the end of the month.

The flaw, discovered by security researcher Evgeny Legerov and reported by The Reg last month, creates a means to inject hostile code on vulnerable systems. The vulnerability is due to be fixed in version 3.6 of Firefox on 30 March.

In the meantime, the more technically adept or security-conscious user can update to the beta version of the 3.6.2 release, which already plugs the security flaw.

In other browser security news, Google updated the Windows version of its Chrome browser on Wednesday, addressing nine vulnerabilities of varying seriousness.

Left unfixed the flaws created a possible mechanism to run spoofing attacks or bypass security restrictions, such as sandboxing. Users are advised to update to version

A flaw in the WebKit engine used by Chrome earned its finder, Sergey Glazunov, the first $1,337 pay-out from Google's bug bounty program.

The release also adds features and fixes stability bugs as explained in an advisory here. Google's update comes just days before the much-watched pwn2own hacking contest at the CanSecWest security conference.


Google unveils Skipfish security tool

Google has released a new development tool aimed at uncovering security holes in web applications.

The company said that the new tool, dubbed Skipfish, will allow developers to scan web applications for possible security vulnerabilities. Currently in beta mode, the tool is designed to support multiple application frameworks and will run on Windows, Linux, MacOSX and BSD operating systems.

Google said that speed and compatibility were the main priorities when designing the tool. Skipfish was written in C and engineered to run quickly while putting minimal strain on processors.

"The safety of the Internet is of paramount importance to Google, and helping web developers build secure, reliable web applications is an important part of the equation," wrote Google developer Michal Zalewsk in a blog posting.

We feel that Skipfish will be a valuable contribution to the information security community, making security assessments significantly more accessible and easier to execute

Protecting web applications and cloud computing services has arguably become the biggest issue in the security world as of late. Analysts and developers alike have noted a distinct lack of trust from users in many web applications, particularly enterprise IT services.

As a result, security vendors have stepped up efforts to offer tools and services to web application and cloud computing developers.


Google reportedly planning April shutdown in China

is reportedly preparing to shut down its operations in China over the next few weeks.

Chinese news service China Business News cited companies partnering with Google in reporting that the search giant would be closing its operations within the country on 10 April.

The latest report fits in with a similar report from Monday which said that Google was prepared to walk away from discussions with the Chinese government.

The two sides have been at odds over the year on the issue of censorship. Google has vowed that it will not limit user access within China, while authorities in Beijing have declared that the company will not be able to operate within the country unless it agrees to censor its search results.

Further fanning the flames between Google and China was the 2009 targeted attack on the company's systems. Google believes that individuals working with the government's blessing attempted to infect the systems of Google employees with malware in an effort to steal corporate data.

The company was one of more than 20 firms to report such an incident in a campaign which has come to be known as Operation Aurora. In addition to security concerns, the incident caused other companies working within China to re-examine their own operations.
