Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4 "Black Smith" Leak

Recently there was a unofficial video published on the Youtube Channel Drift0r.

The owner of the Channel says that some one from inside the company mailed him the content and asked him to make a video on the upcoming game Call Of Duty and also by taking a promise not to reveal the media files he attached with the email. Here is what was written in the video description box "Somebody from inside the CoD Machine contacted me and wished to leak a lot of information about Sledgehammer's next Call of Duty Call of Duty game. I saw several media files that included gameplay and game assets. I was given virtually no actual information other than the media files. Based on those and the recent MW3 themed DLC for CoD Ghosts and Black Ops 2, I think next call of Duty title might be MW4 / Modern Warfare 4. This video does not contain the actual leaked media as I do not want to get a copyright strike from Activision. The assets I was given were not verifiable nor was it from a trusted source. However, they are at least unique. I was unable to find them elsewhere online. If it not CoD2k14, then it was an amazing CoD mod, or some other triple A title that has not seen the lgiht of day. Also, I promised the leaker that I would only share information but not the files. I will not sell or reveal files to anyone, please don't ask. I will also not reveal my source of information. Lastly, it is important to not that this person contacted me and offered up the files. I did not seek them out or acquire them myself."

Well I can't even guarantee that are these leaks real or not but yes we have to agree to his point that definately they are unique and intresting.

I'll definately stich to the news and let you all know if there is any further news or any official statement about this leak.

And also let me know in the comments what you think about the video can it be real or it's just another public stunt just to grab the public attention, likes and to increase his subscriptions. 
Please let me know below.......

Microsoft and Computer History Museum : Source Code for MS Dos1.1 & 2.0 and Word for Windows Version 1.1A released

Few days back Microsoft released the source code for MS Dos1.1 and 2.0 and also Microsoft Microsoft Word for Windows Version 1.1a. This release was made for the public all over the world on the official ComputerHistory website.

Tim Paterson who wrote 86-DOS 1.10 was hired by Microsoft in May 1981, released PC DOS version 1.0, which supported only floppy disks, was shipped when IBM first released their PC in August 1981 after the collaboration of Microsoft and IBM in 1980. Microsoft then substantially rewrote the software to support subdirectories and hard disks in order to do that version 2.0 was released with the IBM PC-XT in March of 1983 which after receiving all the rights and licenses named as MS Dos.

Also no statement has been released on the question arising that "What took company so long to release these Source Code?"

Microsoft Word

One of the first programs was BRAVO, created in 1974 by Butler Lampson, Charles Simonyi and others at Xerox PARC, the Palo Alto Research Center, for the groundbreaking Alto computer. Simonyi later said,

 ”It was clear that quite a beautiful editor could be written for the Alto. Remember, the Alto had a black and white bitmap display. It had a mouse. It had an un-decoded keyboard. It had all the ingredients that are necessary for WYSIWYG. And, of course, then the network came around. The laser printer was coming alive. So all the components were there, except for the software…. We set out to write an editor and we finished it about three months.”

Welcoming the new look of the famous Batman looks like some new screens are released on the web with less shadows like as the previous imagery was shrouded in shadows taking care of that now Warner Bros. has released several screens of the Arkham Knight in plain sight.
