Fit BrainsVancouver – Research has shown that brain health begins to lag as early as age 25. However, the same research has shown that with regular brain fitness training, the brain can create new neural connections and pathways at any age.

In response to this research, Vancouver’s Vivity Labs has created FitBrains.com, a new online brain fitness platform that hosts fun, casual games developed by brain fitness experts, specifically designed to exercise the brain and improve the five major cognitive brain functions – memory, concentration, language, executive functions (logic and reasoning), and visual-spatial skills.

WinMagic to Debut SecureDoc 4.6 at RSA Conference 2009

WinMagicToronto – WinMagic® Data Security, the innovative leader in endpoint security, will demonstrate SecureDoc 4.6, the first comprehensive enterprise-class full-disk encryption solution for heterogeneous computing environments, at the RSA Conference 2009 (booth 831). WinMagic will show how SecureDoc 4.6 provides centrally-manageable and fully-transparent, ‘always-on’ full-disk encryption for Windows 2000/XP/Vista and Mac – making it simple for organizations to protect all data on all servers, desktops, laptops and removable media.

Mac computers are often not included in encryption deployments – many enterprise networks are primarily Windows-based, and Mac platforms are used by select departments or individuals (including many executives). SecureDoc offers the ability to configure, deploy and manage encryption for Mac desktops and laptops from the same console that is used to manage the Windows machines. This drives greater efficiency for IT and security staff while ensuring sensitive data is protected. Centralized escrow and management of encryption keys also ensures continued access to data for authorized users in the event of lost passwords, departing employees or other challenges.

Ghostbusters MP Dev Diary From Threewave Studios

Threewave Software

Ghostbusters MP Dev Diary – Written By Threewave Software

It’s Crazy Enough that it Just Might Work…

When I first heard about doing the Multiplayer for the new Ghostbusters game, I was excited but very cautious as well. Movie licensed games are not Ghostbusters Gamesomething that Threewave, being a group of mostly hardcore shooter fans, usually get excited about. We were proven wrong.

If you don’t know, Threewave Software has made great shooter content for a long time. Threewave developed the original Threewave Capture the Flag (“CTF”) mod for Quake, and followed it up with work on top brands as Quake III, Doom 3, Jedi Academy, Soldier of Fortune, Turok, Return to Castle Wolfenstein and Army of Two.
