The Planet Computers Cosmo is a laptop/phone hybrid that fits in your pocket
1 mrt 12:46 - Some ideas are immortal. Take, for example, the humble Psion PDA. Although most people (rightly) thought it died in the early-2000’s, it’s since enjoyed an unlikely revival thanks to the efforts of British firm Planet Computers. Last year, the firm launched its Psion-inspired Gemini clamshell PDA (which we reviewed and liked), and is currently working on the follow-up, the Cosmo Communicator. During the madness of Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, TNW sat down with Planet Computers CEO Janko Mrsic-Flogel to look at an early prototype. There are several key differences between the Cosmo and the Gemini, perhaps the biggest being… This story continues at The Next Web


YouTube’s need to disable comments highlights how shitty the internet is
1 mrt 10:51 - Headlines over the past several days have been dominated by stories about problematic content on major platforms, and the harrowing task of policing them. The most recent bit of news comes from YouTube, which noted that it’s now disabled comments of tens of millions of videos featuring minors, in an effort to prevent predatory behavior in the comments section of these clips. It’s not the first time YouTube has had to deal with users sexualizing children on its platform; as The Verge notes, the company has been tackling such issues since at least 2013. It’s a big step for a… This story continues at The Next WebOr just read more coverage about: YouTube

Tesla’s crazy plan to sell its cars exclusively online might just pay off
1 mrt 10:12 - Last night, Tesla announced that it’s finally making its much-awaited $35,000 Tesla 3 sedan available for purchase. However, the most eye-catching part of the announcement wasn’t about the car, but about the company’s decision to move its sales exclusively online. CEO Elon Musk said that it took this decision in order to was to keep Tesla’s cars affordable. He noted that this move will allow the company to lower all vehicle prices by about six percent on average. Because of this decision, the company won’t have to spend on keeping showrooms open, and on employing salespeople. Only a handful of… This story continues at The Next WebOr just read more coverage about: Tesla


What we know about Facebook’s secretive cryptocurrency – and what we don’t
1 mrt 10:07 - Rumours about Facebook‘s potential entry into the world of cryptocurrency have been swirling around for months, but it now seems the technology giant is getting closer to launching its own coin. According to a New York Times report, published yesterday, Facebook, Telegram, and Signal are all reportedly working to get their cryptocurrencies to market. In true technology giant fashion, Facebook has failed to divulge specifics, but the New York Times cites five anonymous sources briefed on the matter, all of whom say Mark Zuckerberg‘s company is working on a coin to be used on its WhatsApp service (which it acquired… This story continues at The Next WebOr just read more coverage about: Facebook


12 optimization tips for businesses looking to tap into wearable tech
1 mrt 10:00 - From the Apple Watch Series 3 to the Fitbit Versa and all the new tech in-between, wearable tech has been taking over for quite a while now. As the wearable tech market grows, businesses are looking for opportunities to join in. To learn how to optimize a business for wearable success, we asked a panel of entrepreneurs from YEC the following question: How are you optimizing your business for wearables? Here’s what they said: 1. Make sure your team understands the tech I run a tech consultancy and I’m often asked about wearables and how they fit into the solutions… This story continues at The Next Web


Here’s who has the most juice in Twitter’s AI influencer community
1 mrt 00:02 - Insight analyst Lizzie Dunmore today published an analysis of Twitter interactions on the topic of AI between the general public, the media, and the 18 most influential AI influencers. Dunmore, who works for Onalytica, looked at a year’s worth of tweets from 3,000 influencers and 1,000 news media outlets to figure out who the most influential AI tweeters tweeting on Twitter ’twere (that’s bad grammar; good poetic license). She also determined what impact their interactions (likes and retweets) had on the top media outlets publishing AI stories. Furthermore, she even revealed whether the media outlets or the individual influencers had… This story continues at The Next WebOr just read more coverage about: Twitter


Sorry, I’m too busy planning our smart home to help pack
28 feb 19:03 - I’m supposed to be packing up all the electronics I “won’t need until after the move.” What does that even mean? I need all of my electronics all of the time. Instead, I’m pretending to write a review of these Aukey smart outlets. I’m really just surfing Amazon and planning out our new smart home. Aukey makes everything from headphones to keyboards. I’ve come to expect a certain level of quality from its products – they usually aren’t the best, but they’re often the best value – and these smart outlets are no exception. They feel well-made, there’s nothing wrong… This story continues at The Next Web


Let’s reminisce about 2014’s bizarre cryptocurrency market
28 feb 17:56 - Take a deep breathe and close your eyes for a moment. Katy Perry’s new, inspiring smash-hit, “Roar,” is playing on the radio. Open your eyes. Go catch a movie, and more than likely you’ll watch the much-anticipated LEGO Movie. Then, take a break from churning out Luigi death stare memes to check on your recent cryptocurrency investment. Bitcoin, now just five years old, is worth a whopping $630, and you’re totally confident Auroracoin is the next big thing in blockchain, even though you’re not really from Iceland. Welcome back to 2014 – the Ethereum crowdsale has just begun, and XRP is… This story continues at The Next Web


Ethereum is forking again – here’s what you need to know
28 feb 16:15 - Welcome to Hard Fork Basics, a collection of tips, tricks, guides, and advice to keep you up to date in the cryptocurrency and blockchain world. The Ethereum community is today getting ready for two upgrades to its blockchain, following various security-related delays. Constantinople and St Petersburg, as the code changes are known, will be implemented into the Ethereum blockchain as hard forks as soon as the network hits block 7,280,000 – the forks’ exact dates will depend on block times between now and then (you can see a real-time countdown here), but more on this below.

Here’s why NASA is sending worms to space
9 dec 15:02 - Space launches are some of the most spectacular and nerve wracking events you can witness. And when you are actually involved in one, you realize just how much can go wrong. We are currently in Florida, nervously counting down the hours until we launch our experiment, sending thousands of microscopic worms to the International Space Station (ISS) aboard the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket. The launch, taking place at NASA Kennedy Space Center on December 4, isn’t the only one we have to worry about. Our mission is dependent on a Soyuz rocket successfully carrying three crew members to the ISS… This story continues at The Next Web

Women were written out of science history – it’s time we put them back in
9 dec 10:30 - Can you name a female scientist from history? Chances are you are shouting out Marie Curie. The twice Nobel Prize-winning Curie and mathematician Ada Lovelace are two of the few women within Western science to receive lasting popular recognition. One reason women tend to be absent from narratives of science is because it’s not as easy to find female scientists on the public record. Even today, the numbers of women entering science remain below those of men, especially in certain disciplines. A-level figures show only 12 percent of candidates in computing and 22 percent in physics in 2018 were girls.… This story continues at The Next Web


How blockchain is bringing staffing innovation
9 dec 05:50 - Blockchain technology is rapidly spreading into every available corner in the market, leading many business owners and managers to encounter it for the first time recently. While many have heard about the exciting cryptocurrencies that are sucking up media attention, like Bitcoin, few have heard as much about the blockchain tech that’s powering those cryptocurrencies and other dizzying digital trends forward. That’s a shame, because blockchain has tremendous potential to reshape how contemporary businesses work, starting with bringing staffing innovation to the market. Here’s how Blockchain will change the way approach recruiting in the future. The rise of the gig… This story continues at The Next Web


Here’s how a second-hand game market for digital copies should work
8 dec 19:30 - The last weeks have been abuzz with players trying out Red Dead Redemption 2, a long-awaited title by Rockstar games, offered at around $60. Despite its popularity, it’s already entered the secondary market, available for around $50. However, only people who buy physical discs could benefit from this price drop, as a secondary market for digital game copies simply doesn’t exist. But what if we did have a secondary market for digital copies of video games? How would it work, what would it look like, and who would benefit from it the most? This month, my family bought a vinyl… This story continues at The Next Web


Here’s what your phone can learn from the sound of your voice
8 dec 17:00 - The vast majority of people in developed countries now carry a smartphone everywhere. And while many of us are already well aware of privacy issues associated with smartphones, like their ability to track our movements or even take surreptitious photos, an increasing number of people are starting to worry that their smartphone is actually listening to everything they say. There might not be much evidence for this but, it turns out, it isn’t far from the truth. Researchers worldwide have begun developing many types of powerful audio analysis AI algorithms that can extract a lot of information about us from… This story continues at The Next Web


Already learned DevOps? Great, now it’s time for GitOps
8 dec 15:30 - You’ve seen DevOps, and DevSecOps, and maybe even NoOps. But if you haven’t already, you’re going be hearing a whole lot more about GitOps. As an indicator, four of the sessions at the upcoming KubeCon are about GitOps. You might not know what GitOps is, but if you’re developing software, there’s a good chance you’re already doing it. What’s GitOps? And do we really need another software development buzzword? Well, GitOps is really the culmination of a few different trends in software development, deployment, and operation taken to their logical conclusion. Together, they create a new way of working with… This story continues at The Next Web

This is how I started a successful B2B tech company
8 dec 11:30 - Less than a decade ago, I left a high-paying tech job in New York City to found my own SEO-optimization company. It was a calculated risk — I had a family to support but did not pursue investors or venture capital. Instead, I focused on organically building a consulting company, and using it to later incubate my software company. Since I left my job in November 2011, I have personally sold around $3 million of business to date (without an enterprise sales background). This is more than twice what I would have made if I stayed at my previous job,… This story continues at The Next Web


Biohackers enhance sex with this vibrating implant for men
8 dec 10:02 - An implant inserted near the pelvis to deliver “on-demand” vibrations is in development by American biohacker Rich Lee. Designed for men, the Lovetron9000 device will be inserted beneath the skin of the pelvis to “enhance the shared experience of lovemaking, emanating a passionate vibration that connects you to your partner,” Lee says. Lee from St. George, Utah, has spent $15,000 developing the toy – although is yet to sell one or use it himself. “We’re the first movers [in the biohacking field],” he told Bloomberg. “But as the technology becomes more mainstream, there will be potential uses for pretty much everybody.” The Lovetron9000’s… This story continues at The Next Web


Coinbase wants to remind you that cryptocurrency is still shit
8 dec 03:19 - For those that bought Bitcoin in 2009, or even in 2011, I can only hope you’ve already sold it. For those that bought Bitcoin in 2017, well… sorry? Coinbase, one of the largest places to buy cryptocurrency online, seems to want you to revel in the Bitcoin‘s failures. For unknown reasons, the company still proudly displays a chart (which we first noticed last year, during the cryptocurrency boom) that shows the dollar value of Bitcoin if you’d bought $100 worth in 2013. Sadly, it’s about as bad as you’d expect. I love that @coinbase still have this page on their… This story continues at The Next Web


The Apple Watch’s new ECG feature is already saving lives
8 dec 01:02 - Sure, Apple may have announced three new iPhones, a new MacBook Air, and the new iPad Pro this year, but the most important product is the company’s Apple Watch Series 4. It was just last night that Apple activated the Watch’s electrocardiogram (ECG) feature, and it appears to already be saving lives. Redditor u/edentel posted his experience today after receiving an alert on his Apple watch indicating he may have atrial fibrillation – afib for short – and decided to go to the doctor. The Doctor confirmed the Watch’s reading, saying “this probably saved you.” The post is worth reading in its… This story continues at The Next WebOr just read more coverage about: Apple Watch,Apple


Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg spit fire in new Epic Rap Battles of History
7 dec 22:35 - Epic Rap Battles of History just came back triumphant after almost two years of silence, and the opponents in the latest battle are none other than the most infamous CEOs of the year: Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg versus Tesla’s Elon Musk. The choice of rivals is not a huge surprise — I’ve been seeing this match-up requested in comments for at least the last year. Series creators “NicePeter” Shukoff (who plays Zuckerberg) and “EpicLloyd” Ahlquist (who plays Musk) had previously said they would be starting the new season next year, but announced they’d be releasing a bonus episode today.

Yale teaches robots not to mess with people’s stuff
7 dec 21:07 - When it comes to getting a quality education, a robot could do far worse than a program at Yale. Machine learning researchers at the Ivy-League university recently started teaching robots about the nuances of social interaction. And there’s no better place to start than with possessions. One of the earliest social constructs that humans learn is the idea of ownership. That’s my bottle. Gimme that teddy bear. I want that candy bar and I will make your life a living hell if you don’t buy it for me right now. Robots, on the other hand, don’t have a grain of… This story continues at The Next Web


Epic dances around legal issues with Fortnite emotes
7 dec 20:57 - Rapper 2 Milly yesterday revealed he was suing Epic Games, the creators of Fortnite, for copying his dance, the Milly Rock, in one of their emotes. The problem, he says, is not just that he’s not being fairly credited and compensated — it’s that he’s just one of several artists who’ve been treated this way by the game company. (Mis)Appropriation In the complaint filed by 2 Milly’s (real name: Terrence Ferguson) lawyers in a California court, they allege that Epic Games ripped off several artists, saying, “Epic has consistently sought to exploit African-American talent in particular in Fortnite by copying their dances and movements.” The complaint goes on to… This story continues at The Next Web

Understandable, after half the universe has been wiped out, I suppose. If you want to go into the movie fresh, don’t worry; this trailer won’t do much to spoil things for you, as it’s also surprisingly light on plot and character appearances. Of course, there will inevitably be more trailers to come in the months leading up to the movie’s release.

MasterCard wants to make electronic payments anonymous… with blockchain
7 dec 16:01 - Just as the US Department of Homeland Security announced plans to develop forensic techniques to deanonymize cryptocurrency transactions, MasterCard has thrown a spanner in the works with plans for the exact opposite. According to a recent patent application, the payment infrastructure provider wants to anonymize “electronic transactions via blockchain.” The patent explains how the system would obscure the origin and amount of funds involved in a given transaction. MasterCard‘s idea sounds an awful lot like a mixer or tumbler – a system often used by cybercriminals to launder dirty cryptocurrency. Effectively, it works by providing a primary address for a… This story continues at The Next Web


What we know about the ConsenSys layoffs, as told by a ‘fired’ employee
7 dec 15:43 - ConsenSys, the blockchain behemoth powering a swathe of Ethereum-related software, is letting 13 percent of its staff go in a bid to retain a sense of viability. The company confirmed what many believed would be inevitable: the exponential growth enjoyed by Joseph Lubin’s decentralized business experiment can’t, and won’t, go on forever. A press release optimistically dubbed the new, 13-percent-lighter company as “ConsenSys 2.0,” presumably an attempt to spin the situation positively. “Excited as we are about ConsenSys 2.0, our first step in this direction has been a difficult one,” the press release read. “We are streamlining several parts of… This story continues at The Next Web

Among others, Coinbase singled out Ripple‘s XRP, Cardano’s ADA, EOS, as well as the embattled Tezos (XTZ). Indeed, the exchange claims it’s currently considering over 30 new additions.

7 dec 14:56 - KnowTechie is one of my favorite blogs. Earlier this week, it published a post about a super-cheap ‘smart’ RGB bias light from Chinese tech brand MINGER. Yes, you read that right. MINGER. It’s unfortunate the branding team at MINGER didn’t stop to Google it first, as MINGER is a rather cruel British insult.

Anyone who does not look better to you after several strong alcoholic drinks probably fits this category” You get the idea. Other definitions… This story continues at The Next Web

The EUBF’s latest report details that for blockchain to realize its potential within government institutions, they must focus on using the technology to build two things: digital identity systems, and digital versions of their national currencies. “Digital identity is the fundamental building block and a key area for governments to focus on,” the report reads. “Another important building block … is having digital versions of national… This story continues at The Next Web

Mozilla is deeply concerned about Microsoft killing EdgeHTML
7 dec 13:18 - Earlier this week, Microsoft announced that it would discontinue the EdgeHTML browser engine. Future versions of Edge would use Google’s Chromium rendering engine, which powers a swathe of browsers, including Chrome and Opera. Edge was never a popular browser, and at the time of writing commands just 4.34 percent of the market, according to NetMarketShare. However, the increasing homogenization of the browser space doesn’t sit well with many.

The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) yesterday released an update stating it is pushing its decision on the VanEck Bitcoin ETF back to February 27, 2019.

Researchers found a psychological link between conspiracy theories and creationism
7 dec 09:31 - Ask a three-year-old why they think it’s raining, and she may say “because the flowers are thirsty”. Her brother might also tell you that trees have leaves to provide shade for people and animals. These are instances of teleological thinking, the idea that things came into being and exist for a purpose. Teleological explanations for natural phenomena are rejected by scientists because these explanations appeal to intentions. But trees do not grow leaves and rain clouds do not drop water with an outcome in mind. It rains because of physics.

Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 8cx chip for PCs promises greater performance and graphics capabilities
7 dec 08:18 - Qualcomm has previously developed some ho-hum chips for Windows 10-based always-connected PCs. But this time it means business, with its first 7nm Snapdragon 8cx (Compute Extreme) chip for laptops that promises significantly greater performance than its predecessors. The company first introduced connected PC support with the Snapdragon 835, and last year it modded the Snapdragon 845 to build the Snapdragon 850 for Windows 10. However, the 8cx is the first chip designed specifically for PCs.

Apple Watch 4’s ECG heart monitor feature is live, here’s how to use it
7 dec 06:52 - One of the biggest upgrades to the Apple Watch Series 4 from its predecessor is its ability to record an electrocardiogram and detect issues with how the user’s heart is functioning. The company’s FDA-approved feature is now live for users in the US. The device can detect irregularities in your heartbeat, which can point to critical conditions like atrial fibrillation that may result in a stroke. If your Watch classifies your rhythm as a high heart rate or atrial fibrillation, you’ll want to talk to your doctor. However, it’s worth noting that the Watch only records a basic single-lead ECG,… This story continues at The Next WebOr just read more coverage about: Apple Watch,Apple


Google is fixing gender bias in its Translate service
7 dec 06:12 - Google Translate has previously displayed signs of gender bias by assigning genders to certain adjectives and words describing occupations. Thankfully, the company’s rolling out an update to fix this. The company said that after the update, Google translate will provide both feminine and masculine translations for gender-neutral words: Historically, it has provided only one translation for a query, even if the translation could have either a feminine or masculine form. So when the model produced one translation, it inadvertently replicated gender biases that already existed. For example: it would skew masculine for words like “strong” or “doctor,” and feminine for… This story continues at The Next WebOr just read more coverage about: Google

After the company purchased Astro Gaming last summer, it added a high-end line of stellar gaming cans, rivaling anyone in the industry, including Razer, Turtle Beach, and others. And to show off its newfound range in headset availability, the company sent us two to play with: the corded Logitech G433, and Astro’s A50 Wireless. There’s a lot to love, but we’re going to pit the two against one another in a death match of sorts instead. Not to spoil the ending,… This story continues at The Next Web


Valve’s CS:GO is the latest to shove in a battle royale mode

To my surprise, that’s primarily women and other marginalized groups who sought solace in Tumblr‘s pseudonymous communities. Reddit veered in a different direction, as it so often does — for better, or worse.

Don’t believe the hype: There’s nothing wrong with the space station robot
6 dec 22:19 - CIMON, an AI-powered robot developed by IBM and Airbus, recently acted perfectly normal during interactions with human crew aboard the International Space Station (ISS). A slew of journalists don’t agree with that assessment, but we’ll let you decide. When a crew member tried to ask it to do stuff it got confused, misinterpreted certain voice commands, and generally failed to produce the expected results with any consistency. Yep, sounds like business as usual. If you own a smart speaker, interact with a virtual assistant, or have ever played Zork (okay, maybe not that one) you know exactly how it feels… This story continues at The Next Web
