PS4's next firmware update helps users clean up the clutter

PS Plus February 2018

Sony's revealed new features coming to the PlayStation 4 as part of the 5.50 update.

Playtime management will introduce parental controls allowing any family member set as a guardian to limit play time for children (or other family members who aren't set as guardians ). The child will receive notifications telling them when the time is about to expire so they can save and quit their game. Family managers will be able to track playtime, as well as set restrictions either based on certain time windows or on total amount of time spent playing.

First off, your Library will now automatically be divided into two tabs: "This PS4" and one displaying your username. You can zoom and crop the image before saving it as your background, so no need to fiddle with dimensions or resolution beforehand. Sony notes that, just like when playing a game locally on PS4, some background music may not always be available. Like the previous feature, this one is all about giving players the choice to truly make things their own.

The organization highlights that therapies such as chemotherapy and radiation can be life-saving. Herceptin studies have found a heart failure incidence of up to 4 percent, for instance.

From the dashboard go to Settings Themes Select Theme Custom Select Image USB Storage Device.

Meanwhile, the update lets you import your own images via USB stick to use as custom wallpapers. If your PS Plus membership is expired, a PS Plus icon with a lock will appear next to your game so you'll know you can not play the game until you've re-subscribed. Managing Playtime is as simple as heading to Settings Family Management or logging into their PlayStation account from their PC or smartphone, to check and manage their child's daily playtime. The PS4 section lists all of the apps and games now installed on the console, while the tab with your avatar and name shows what has been purchased with your PSN account. This will also allow you to see who's now online.

Other features coming along with this update include enhancements to the Quick Menu, notifications, and new customization options for Tournaments team pages.

Technology companies lead stocks higher in midday trade
Facebook rose 3.5 percent after the company forecast rising ad sales, despite a dip in usage on the social media network. Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) jumped more than 3% after reporting an across-the-board fourth-quarter beat late Tuesday.

Making this the third PS4 firmware in a row to tackle the notification menu, this update will allow you to delete old notifications, either individually or in bulk. With the option enabled, games will be rendered at a higher resolution, before being downscaled to match the TV.

For owners of the PlayStation 4 Pro, this update adds a new supersampling mode.

Sony did not set a release date for firmware 5.50, but these beta test usually take about a month. When listening to music on PS4, users can now access certain shortcuts from the Quick Menu.

Trump's lawyers argue Mueller has not met threshold for presidential interview
Trump demanded that he not recuse himself, but after he did, he attacked Sessions, obvious pressure for him to resign. But perhaps the most damaging aspect of this report is how casually and openly Trump is plotting his obstruction.

That is to say, Sony had in theory replaced the original Gold headset with the Platinum model, which offered an even more precious metal in the title and new 3D audio features, albeit at a $159.99 price tag instead of the original Gold's $99.99.
