These prototype eyeglasses from AVG make you invisible to facial recognition software

But that ‘s not all — in addition to the infrared tech, the glasses are also rimmed with a type of retro-reflective material that bounces light back to exactly where it came from. Most surfaces reflect light by diffusing or scattering it in all directions, but this material is specially designed to reflect light back at the exact same angle as it arrived. If caught in flash photography, retro-reflective material will send most of the light back to the camera’s sensor. This will result in an image that will put the dynamic range  of the camera sensor to the test.

The myth about how Amazon’s Web service started just won’t die

That seed of an idea turned into what is now the market-leading IaaS public cloud computing company. Amazon was estimated last year by Gartner to have a public cloud that is five times larger than its next 14 competitors combined. Needless to say, the idea Black helped start took off. Pinkham went on to found startup Nimbula, which Oracle bought and used as the basis for its cloud platform. Pinkham now works as an engineering vice president at Twitter.

He told fans at a convention last year of his intention to stay away from "earthlings" outside of Peter Quill.

How to create a personal cloud with BitTorrent Sync 2.0

When you launch BitTorrent Sync 2.0 for the first time, it walks you through a brief setup procedure. On your first Mac, when you get to the screen that says Link Devices, click This Is My First Sync 2.0 Device. Then, on the Create Identity screen, type the name you want to use for your identity and click Create Identity. At this point, you can begin adding folders. (To do so, click the Add Folder icon in the upper-left corner, navigate to the folder you want to sync, and click Open.) But you may want to postpone adding folders until you’ve set up another Mac and read about the extra steps needed to sync folders to their expected locations.

The Following: "New Blood" Review - IGN

But that was also a lot of work just to try and get an advantage on the viewer. I can't imagine that pace continuing. To spread out the stabbings and perverse puppetry, our heroes were given their own little party bags of drama. The Hardys now have significant others - Gwen (Zuleikha Robinson) and Tom (Gbenga Akinnagbe) - though Ryan's pushing Gwen away and Max is probably still hung up on Mike. Following the rules of horror trilogies, Ryan's year-long break totally falls in line for a third chapter that's to be all about revisiting what we've seen so far. Mike, on the other hand, is sort of a year behind, rule-wise, and is went through similar off-screen obsessive turmoil (minus the drinking) that Ryan did between Seasons 1 and 2.

Blackberry Is Bringing Back the Slider Phone Because Sure Why Not

Blackberry calls it "the Slider." Details on the device are scant for now; handset chief Ron Louks only held it up on stage for a quick peek. (Louks, by the way, is the same Blackberry executive that has said the company's goal was to release " at least one unconventional device " a year.) It's unclear when the Slider will see primetime, but rest assured that if you want to buy a slider phone you'll soon be able to choose between competing models from Blackberry and Mozilla . Here's hoping a Sidekick 2015 is in development, too. [BlackBerry]

Pebble Time Steel is a dressed-up version of Pebble's latest watch

A metal chassis isn't the only change from the regular Time. The Time Steel is 1mm thicker and has nearly twice the battery capacity — Pebble says it should last up to 10 days between charges compared to the seven on the standard model. It also has a nicer, laminated display, which eliminates the slight air gap in the Time's screen. The three buttons on the side have a textured grip, and the metal frame around the display itself is slimmer than on the Time. The slimmer metal frame actually makes the Time Steel's display appear smaller than the Time's, though they are the same dimensions. Migicovsky says the metal link bracelet was designed to prevent catching on your arm hair, and sure enough, it did not pinch me or pull my hair when I tried it on. Overall, the Time Steel and the link bracelet are significantly nicer and more substantial than last year's Pebble Steel.

The Koenigsegg Regera is the 1,500bhp king of the Geneva Motor Show

There will be just 80 Koenigsegg Regeras ever made, which, for the sort of car that this is, actually sounds like quite an ambitious number.

And yet, here I am, standing next to a car that has both an electric-only mode for perfect silence and a full-power insanity mode that goes from 0 to 100kmh in 2.8 seconds. And it has CarPlay! All that incredible value can be yours for a price of $1.89 million plus taxes, with the first cars being delivered to their lucky owners in 2016.

Piper Jaffray pegs stainless steel Apple Watch price at $499, Edition at $4,999

Quote: Originally Posted by AppleInsider� Starting with Apple Watch Sport, the aluminum and glass version widely thought to be the least expensive model, Munster expects an ASP of $450 after factoring in configuration alternatives like case and internal storage options.

Even a 1GB iPod Shuffle will hold 130 songs at 256kibps with an average duration of 4 minutes. Over 8 hours of music for 1GB is plenty... and I'm expecting it to be 4GB with most of that available to the user. Quote: On the high end, the analyst forecasts base model Apple Watch Edition devices to start at $4,999, but classifies segment ASP closer to $7,500 after adding in straps made from precious metals. All the ?Watch Editions contain the "precious metal" gold, but it's all as part of the plastic or leather strap. There is no sold gold strap at this point. Quote: Based on current pricing for leather iPhone cases, Munster sees Apple selling Watch straps made out of the same material in the $49 to $59 range.

Evolution of the Internet: from Decentralized to Centralized

It’s not only much easier to manage centralized services, but it’s easier to make profits from them as well.
