Briefly: Google buys SlickLogin, Titanfall beta open for Xbox One

updated 11:36 pm EST, Sun February 16, 2014

Security startup SlickLogin purchased by Google

Israeli security startup SlickLogin has announced that it will be joining Google, in light of the company's recent buyout. Aiming to offer a simplistic yet secure method of user authentication, SlickLogin's users can authorize access to a secure account by placing their phone next to their laptop or tablet, which emits an undetectable sound. The sound acts as a unique audio password, and utilizes patent-pending technologies. Google's acquisition of SlickLogin suggests that its two-factor authentication technology may be replaced in the future.

Titanfall beta now accessible to all Xbox One gamers

Multiplayer story-driven campaign game Titanfall has had its beta version extended for all Xbox One gamers to access. Beginning yesterday, users can now access the beta on the "New Game Demos" section of the Game Store. Its gameplay is comparable to that of Quake and Halo, with the addition of Titans, which are large exoskeleton mechs. Those interested in purchasing Titanfall can pre-order the game for PC, Xbox One, and Xbox 360 for $60.
