Game of Thrones premiere free on Xbox Video after HBO Go crashes

HBO is offering the season 4 premiere of Game of Thrones free on Xbox, after its HBO Go app failed during the broadcast. The free episode will be viewable on both the Xbox One and Xbox 360 through Xbox Video, rather than the HBO Go app until April 14th, reports Variety. HBO Go is not the only service to be affected by the influx of Game of Thrones fans, as British broadcaster Sky's Now TV suffered a similar fate during the later UK broadcast last night.

Google I/O registrations delayed by one week, registration period lengthened

Google has pushed back the registration for the Google I/O developer conference by one week. Attendees for the event, which typically sells out of tickets within a short space of time, will have to win the ability to purchase tickets through a lottery, with registrations starting from April 15th and lasting for an extended four days. Tickets for the event itself will cost $1,000, though students will be admitted for $300.
