Apple’s WWDC 2016 session videos now have an unofficial transcript, thanks to a macOS app on GitHub. The appropriately named ‘WWDC’ is a native app for macOS that streamed live session videos during WWDC, but may actually be better now that the event is over. Though Apple makes its videos available on the official WWDC website, it only includes the slides from each talk. WWDC 4.3 is out! Transcripts for 2016 now available thanks to @ASCIIwwdc 🙂 https://t.co/X4vjZOE77a #WWDC #macOS pic.twitter.com/VZUu6XebYt — Guilherme Rambo (@_inside) June 26, 2016 In conjuncture with ASCIIwwdc, there’s now a transcript for each session available…

Microsoft has significantly upped the tally of U.S. government gag orders slapped on demands for customer information, according to court documents filed last week.
In a revised complaint submitted to a Seattle federal court last Friday, Microsoft said that more than half of all government data demands were bound by a secrecy order that prevented the company from telling customers of its cloud-based services that authorities had asked it to hand over their information.

When you’re one of the richest persons on the planet and arguably the most powerful man in technology, how do you keep yourself safe from potential voyeuristic hackers? For Mark Zuckerberg. it seems you just need a little bit of tape. Zuckerberg posted a congratulatory message to Facebook earlier after Instagram hit 500 million monthly users. That’s when Chris Olson and Gizmodo noticed that it appeared his MacBook’s webcam and audio port were covered with pieces of tape. I mean, no one can hack your webcam when the image is physically blocked out anyway, right? Genius. (And yes, that’s almost definitely Zuckerberg’s desk, as seen in…
‘It shows the intense live side of the band, as opposed to the perfection and the cleanness of how we sound on our albums,’ guitarist says.
By Chris Harris
<P>On October 14, <a href=”http://www.mtv.com/music/artist/borgir_dimmu/artist.jhtml”>Dimmu Borgir</a>Dimmu Borgir — who just happen to be <a href=”/news/articles/1593780/demi-lovato-metalhead-metal-file.jhtml”>Demi Lovato’s favorite black-metal band</a> — will release a a three-disc DVD/CD set called “The Invaluable Darkness,” the band’s first visual offering since 2002’s “World Misanthropy.” Boasting live footage shot last year, during gigs in Norway, Germany and England, “The Invaluable Darkness” demonstrates the unbridled furor of seeing Dimmu live, guitarist Silenoz said. </P><P> </P><P>”It shows the honest rawness and atmospheric darkness of our concerts,” the Norwegian told <i>Metal File</i> last week, after <a href=”/news/articles/1596201/in-this-moment-make-the-dream-a-reality-metal-file.jhtml”>dismissing recent online rumors that his band’s next LP would be coming out through Roadrunner Records</a>. “Basically, it shows the intense live side of the band, as opposed to the perfection and the cleanness of how we sound on our albums. It’s just a different side to the band, basically.” </P><P> </P><P>Dimmu Borgir began thinking about “The Invaluable Darkness” two years ago, but didn’t start capturing footage until last summer, Silenoz explained, adding that the band will use its current stint on the Blackest of the Black Tour — which got underway Thursday night in Miami Beach, Florida, and also features the tour’s founder, Danzig, along with </P><P><a href=”http://www.mtv.com/music/artist/moonspell/artist.jhtml”>Moonspell</a>Moonspell, <a href=”http://www.mtv.com/music/artist/winds_of_plague/artist.jhtml”>Winds of Plague</a>Winds of Plague and Skeletonwitch — to promote the DVD. Dimmu Borgir will not, however, use the tour to write material for their next LP. </P><P> </P><P>”It’s our first time on Blackest, but Glenn [Danzig] had wanted to bring us out before [on the tour], but we weren’t available until now,” Silenoz said. “We’ve done Ozzfest before, but we’re looking forward to this tour more. We did the main stage on Ozzfest, playing in f–_ing broad daylight. This tour will let us play in bigger places, but at the same time showcase more of what the band’s about, visually. We are going to concentrate on the tour for now. Some years ago, we tried putting [material] together on the road, but once we got home, we listened back to it, and were like, ‘What the f— <i>is</i> this?’ So, we just scrapped it all. We find it’s so much better to totally focus on one thing at a time, and then, when that’s over, you move on to the next [thing]. We don’t really feel like we need to rush things, anyway, so we’ll just take our time, and it’s going to be what it’s going to be.” </P><P> </P><P>Dimmu Borgir hope to reconvene in late December to begin writing the follow-up to 2007’s diabolically titled <i>In Sorte Diaboli.</i> “We have some ideas floating around already, but we haven’t arranged any material yet,” he said. “We’ll start doing that once the touring for this DVD is over.” The band’s frontman, Shagrath, is also due to marry soon — he’s engaged to actor Nicolas Cage’s ex-girlfriend, Christina Fulton, so that may have an effect on when Dimmu finish their next album, which Silenoz said could be out this coming spring. </P><P> </P><P>”I’m sure [Shagrath] won’t let anything get in the way [of] the band — I think, I hope,” the guitarist said. “We don’t need a Yoko [Ono] situation.” </P><P> </P><P>While Dimmu have been at it going on 15 years now, Silenoz said he doesn’t think their forthcoming material will be much of a departure from their previous black-metal offerings. </P><P> </P><P>”And we have always been about more than just that term, ‘black metal,’ ” he said. “Luckily for us, the older you get, the less concerned you get with the categorization and putting labels on your music. Things start getting more and more limitless with us, and we know that we operate within certain frames. But we try not to analyze things too much, because it’s just going to be working against you in the end. When we write new stuff, we don’t think about what we should write — we just get together, and put material together, and if we like it, we keep it. That’s the formula, if we even have a formula.” </P><P> </P><P>Dimmu Borgir are definitely getting older — guitarist Galder will be missing Blackest because of a recent addition to his family, and <a href=”http://www.mtv.com/music/artist/susperia/artist.jhtml”>Susperia’s</a>Susperia’s Cyrus will be filling in for him; while former <a href=”http://www.mtv.com/music/artist/vader/artist.jhtml”>Vader</a>Vader drummer Dariusz Brzozowski takes over for Hellhammer, who had to leave the band in 2007 after sustaining a neck injury that’s now limited the use of his right arm. As Dimmu has gotten on in years, Silenoz admits they have failed to keep pace with some of the more extreme black-metal acts that have followed in their wake. </P><P> </P><P>”We helped open doors for the more extreme bands out there,” Silenoz said. “I’m sure we helped open doors for bands like Watain, [insomuch as] people that had maybe started listening to us first then went on to the more extreme stuff. Let’s face it — we’re not as extreme as Watain and other bands like that, but we’re fine with that.” </P><P> </P><P>The Blackest of the Black Tour continues through November 10 in San Francisco. </P><P> </P><P>The rest of the week’s metal news: </P><P> </P><P>Dimmu’s tourmates on Blackest, <b>Winds of Plague</b>, have announced ex-<b>Azusa</b> drummer <b>Art Cruz</b> has joined their ranks — he replaced <b>Jeff Tenney</b>. According to the band’s blog, “Art has already added a new spark to the band and has provided us with a solid backbone that will allow us to continue our rampage stronger than ever.” … </P><P> </P><P>What the world really needs is another </P><P><a href=”http://www.mtv.com/music/artist/led_zeppelin/artist.jhtml”><b>Led Zeppelin</b></a><b>Led Zeppelin</b> box set, so, on November 4, Rhino Records will issue the <i>Led Zeppelin Definitive Collection Mini LP Replica CD</i> box set.

According to Leach, “We have two songs to go and we will be finished with all of the vocals. Adam has taken lead vocals in three songs as of yet and he is doing a great job. We also worked on a track yesterday that is so epic — we trade vocals and do two different melodies at the same time. This album went from a melodic metal album to an epic mix of metal/rock/pop/shoegaze and punk. So all of your metal expectations will be incorrect — we are pushing genre boundaries.” To quote “Meet the Parents,” we’ll look forward to that, Greg. … </P><P> </P><P><b>The Funeral Pyre</b> and <b>Early Graves</b> will be hitting the road together next month, starting November 7 in South Lake Tahoe, California.

Enterprises interested in tapping container technology now have a brand-new option for managing it: Launched into beta last November by a team of engineers from Microsoft, VMware and Citrix, the service became generally available in both free and paid versions on Thursday. Promising an all-in-one platform for orchestration, compute, network, and storage management, it provides a single “pane of glass” for all of an enterprise’s containers, whether they’re running on Linux or Windows, bare metal or virtual machine, public or private cloud.
