Sony PlayStation, Microsoft Xbox Give Booster to July Retail Sales

Sony PlayStation, Microsoft Xbox Give Booster to July Retail Sales

TheStreet (Aug. 15, 2014) Next-generation consoles helped boost gaming software and hardware sales in the U.S. since June. Video game sales, including hardware and accessories, jumped 16% from a year earlier to $514.3 million, according to market researcher NPD Group. That increase was driven by the continued success of Sony’s PlayStation 4 and Microsoft’s Xbox One, the latest iterations of their gaming consoles which had near simultaneous releases last November. PlayStation 4 held its lead as top-selling console, a spot it has commanded over Xbox for seven consecutive months. Sony said it has sold more than 10 million units worldwide so far.

Google to Boost the Search Result Rankings of Encrypted Web Sites

TheStreet (Aug. 7, 2014) Google says it's starting to use HTTPS encryption as a ranking signal as part of its effort to make the Internet safer. Google said for now, it's a lightweight signal, affecting fewer than 1% of global queries and carrying less weight than other signals like high-quality content. The company said it's giving webmasters time to switch to HTTPS because in the future, it may decide to strengthen the ranking signal. Websites using HTTP may start to slip down in Google's search results if they don't switch over to more secure encryption. Google said it encourages all Web sites to switch from HTTP to HTTPS to keep Web users more secure. Video provided by TheStreet
