Sony’s new Project Morpheus prototype boasts 120Hz refresh rate, OLED display

Further ReadingOne year later, Sony’s new Morpheus prototype is still VR done rightHands-on: Improved specs are nice, but PlayStation Move firefights really impress. While no prices or bundling details were announced, the device's improved specs were outlined by Sony Worldwide Studios president Shu Yoshida. Someone in the audience let out an audible "wow" when Yoshida started by revealing Morpheus' 120 Hz refresh rate and key display update. The screen is now an OLED display at 1920 x RGB x 1080, which Yoshida said means low persistence and removing motion blur from the old LCD. The device's screen is 5.7 inches, which is large enough for a 100 degree field of view. And the new design includes nine LED trackers to provide 360 degree tracking, according to Sony.

Apple discussing settlement with battery maker over alleged employee poaching

– A + Apple discussing settlement with battery maker over alleged employee poaching By Mikey Campbell Tuesday, March 03, 2015, 04:18 pm PT (07:18 pm ET) In a court filing on Tuesday, Apple informed a Massachusetts federal judge that it is in discussions with A123 Systems to settle out of court a lawsuit claiming Apple poached the battery maker's key engineers for a secret internal project. An inside look at the Venturi Buckeye Bullet 3 land speed racing vehicle with A123 battery technology. Apple revealed that settlement talks were underway in a motion requesting an extension on the time to respond to A123's accusations of employee poaching. Presiding Judge Douglas P. Woodlock subsequently issued an electronic order granting the motion. The filing was spotted by Reuters earlier today . In its complaint, A123 claims Apple poached five executives attached to the firm's System Venture Technologies Division, including program lead and company CTO Mujeeb Ijaz. The battery maker has not revealed what advanced initiatives its Venture Technologies arm was working on, but claims each of the engineers' projects have been shut down due to lack of suitable replacements.

IBM buys AlchemyAPI to boost Watson computing unit

IBM is trying to build a big business around Watson, which came to prominence in 2011 when it beat two previous champions on the U.S. quiz show Jeopardy. IBM gives developers access to Watson so they can use the technology in their own applications, but it has only just started to filter down to mainstream use.

Resident Evil Revelations 2: Episode 2 Review - IGN

In Episode 2: Contemplation, Claire Redfield and Moira Burton continue to be taunted by a cryptic puppet-master in an intriguing story that’s getting more Saw-like by the minute. This baddie isn’t scary, per se - like a number of Resident Evil villainous overlords, she's all pantomime - but I’m enjoying the mystery of her, and the way in which she’s particularly adept at ushering her unwitting minions toward dastardly cliffhangers. Breaking Revelations 2 into episodes is a bit of a strange choice, but there’s something to be said for a bit of rest and contemplation between these breathless encounters.

Parrot Bebop Drone Review: A Keen Eye In The Sky Without A Huge Price Tag

Parrot has a brand new drone on the market, featuring a 1080p video camera that captures motion at 30FPS, and that can take stills at 14MP. The camera has built-in stabilization, letting it avoid the kinds of shakes and jitters that can normally add up to nausea when dealing with moving camera, and has a Wi-Fi flight range of up to 1.2 miles when flown connected directly to the new Skycontroller hardware control accessory. Embedded GPS completes the picture for a far-ranging quadcopter with plenty of amateur film-making potential.

I like my Pebble, but I'm not kickstarting Pebble Time

Unlike all the Android Wear watches out there, Pebble’s watches have always claimed iOS compatibility. That’s true of the Pebble Time, too. But in the past two years as a Pebble user, one thing has been abundantly clear: My Pebble’s relationship with iOS has been fraught with difficulty. I had to fiddle endlessly with Notification Center settings to get alerts to properly display on my watch, and since the release of iOS 8 I’ve found that more often than not my Pebble has just silently lost its connection to my iPhone—or the Pebble app says it is connected, but it doesn’t actually send any notifications. Except when it does.

Many PC makers like Dell and HP have skipped Broadwell chips in some laptops and are waiting for Skylake.

IBM acquires deep learning startup AlchemyAPI

AlchemyAPI’s Turner said his company decided to join IBM, after spurning numerous acquisition offers and stating it wasn’t for sale, in part because it represents an opportunity to “throw rocket fuel on” the company’s long-term goals. Had the plan been to buy AlchemyAPI, kill its service and fold the team into research roles — like what happens with so many other acquisitions of deep learning talent — it probably would not have happened.

Smell the glove

Among mammals the pheromone concept is hazier. Mammals certainly use scent to communicate. A dog cocking its leg is leaving a message about its identity, and which bits of the landscape it thinks belong to it. But what a second dog does with that information will depend on that dog’s sex, social status, friendship and familiarity with the marker, rather than being the automatic reaction an insect would have. Moreover, a decades-long hunt for pheromones in humans has turned up nothing. Dr Wyatt says that a few early candidates have garnered too much attention, and his paper calls for researchers to devise more rigorous experiments that treat humans as if they were a newly discovered mammal.

The two services will have separate log-in pages and separate apps, but some cable execs are concerned about customer confusion. The explanation might challenge even the best call center employee: HBO Go is for TV subscribers to watch their content on devices; HBO Now for those who don’t subscribe via TV.

How a Chinese smartwatch became the surprise hit of Mobile World Congress

So take this for what it’s worth: the Huawei Watch might not feel like a luxury watch, but it sure does feel like a watch. Describing it as "very minimalist and very clean" and "a watch that you could wear with a tuxedo or a t-shirt," Norton says that it’s aimed at "your typical consumer that would also wear CK or Armani or many other of those brands at the mid-level." That feels like the right approach for smartwatches at this stage. These are devices that will by necessity cost a few hundred dollars, but watches like the Moto 360 and Pebble Steel haven’t matched the level of quality you’d expect from a timepiece at that price point. While the Huawei Watch didn’t blow me away with its craftsmanship, it isn’t something I’d be embarrassed to wear. The stainless steel build and sapphire crystal face go a long way to making it feel like an actual timepiece.

At the Eiffel Tower, the turbines rest on top of a fancy restaurant, but diners won't hear them at work.

It's complicated: Nintendo's relationship with indie gaming

Not every Nindie is treated equally, however. Though Baker says that essentially any indie developer that works with Nintendo automatically assumes a licensed status, it's not an automatic seal of quality. The company is still very picky when it comes to eShop promotion. "Honestly, we have an open-door policy in terms of content," says Baker. "But if it's a lower-quality title, people are going to have to search for that. It's not something we are going to promote front and center in our eShop or through our channels."

Uber's first-ever public acquisition, maps firm deCarta, will lessen reliance on Apple, Google

– A + Uber's first-ever public acquisition, maps firm deCarta, will lessen reliance on Apple, Google By Sam Oliver Wednesday, March 04, 2015, 07:33 am PT (10:33 am ET) Ridesharing startup Uber has finally shown its hand in the mergers and acquisitions market, picking up small navigation and geospatial services firm deCarta in a move that some say is designed to help Uber lessen its dependence on mapping services from Apple and Google. deCarta — which provides widely-used platforms for routing, turn-by-turn navigation, and local search, among others — will continue to operate as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Uber and retain the majority of its employees. The deal was first reported by Mashable . "A lot of the functionality that makes the Uber app so reliable, affordable and seamless is based on mapping technologies," an Uber representative told the publication. "With the acquisition of deCarta, we will continue to fine-tune our products and services that rely on maps — for example UberPOOL, the way we compute ETAs, and others - and make the Uber experience even better for our users.

Aerial footage shows off temporary building at site of Apple's March 9 event, likely Apple Watch demo area

By the time Apple has their first event in the new auditorium in 2017, I'd bet that the Apple Watch will have gained plenty of momentum, setting the stage for it to become the keystone for your digital life.

After recently equipping it with the ability to dispense health advice , Google now reckons you might need a little help refining your bartending skills. Yep, you're going to cocktail-making school. A simple "How do I make a ..." search will list the main ingredients and recommended garnishes for your chosen cocktail, as well as the correct glass to serve it in.

Why we all need to practice emotional first aid

We'll go to the doctor when we feel flu-ish or a nagging pain. So why don’t we see a health professional when we feel emotional pain: guilt, loss, loneliness? Too many of us deal with common psychological-health issues on our own, says Guy Winch. But we don’t have to. He makes a compelling case to practice emotional hygiene — taking care of our emotions, our minds, with the same diligence we take care of our bodies.
