“Sources in [a] position to know [say] that the 4th generation Apple TV will not support 4K video,” BuzzFeed wrote, “a newer high-definition video resolution that delivers a more detailed, immersive picture. ‘4K is great, but it’s still in its infancy,’ said one source familiar with Apple’s thinking.”


Side note: Amazon, with Dash and any other future omni-channel commerce offerings, is uniquely well positioned to conquer these challenges, if and when Amazon chooses to open it up to merchants. Amazon’s support for third-party merchant order fulfillment has been in place for nearly a decade! I was lucky enough to work on the Beta release in 2006.

Claim your PlayStation Vita settlement credit now

If you've been anxiously waiting to claim the credit Sony owes you after it settled with the Federal Trade Commission over misleading PlayStation Vita ads, you'll be glad to hear that you can finally take action. The company handling Sony's settlements has launched a website that lets you file a claim so long as you bought a Vita in the US before June 1st, 2012. The options are fairly tempting. You can receive a $25 check or PSN credit if you're only concerned about the bottom line, but you can also choose from one of three bundles with decent (if aging) games like the God of War Collection and Uncharted: Golden Abyss . Be sure to move quickly, whatever you do -- you have to file for compensation by June 29th.

The price of shame

"Public shaming as a blood sport has to stop," says Monica Lewinsky. In 1998, she says, “I was Patient Zero of losing a personal reputation on a global scale almost instantaneously.” Today, the kind of online public shaming she went through has become constant — and can turn deadly. In a brave talk, she takes a hard look at our online culture of humiliation, and asks for a different way.

How One Woman Makes Almost $1 Million A Year On Etsy

I'm not sure where to start with the ridiculousness of this article and honestly the embarrassment that Carey, the author, must feel after not doing any fact checking. How about checking Alexa NUNN not Gill and seeing if that is Alicia's sister? No. Why the F#)# would you LIE about something so easy to discredit you. Also, "some of the items aren't handmade"? How about nearly every single item she is selling. 30 minutes of hitting her sites and adding her "threebirdnest" as a friend on Instagram and looking at the comments would let you know. She buys pretty much all of the items wholesale locally and from China and MAYBE upon arrival adds a button or a piece of lace...then calls that "handmade"..Yes Alicia, its handmade...IN CHINA and you're pawning this sh#) off as your own? Customers have even complained that your "team" is so lazy and arrogant that they aren't even taking the "made in China" tags off do you sleep at night with so may lies being told?

Read the letter Bill Gates sent to Microsoft employees for the company's 40th anniversary

On April 4th, 1975, Bill Gates and Paul Allen started a little company named Microsoft. You probably know the story from there: Gates went on to become the wealthiest man in the world, and then gradually pulled back from his company to focus on  broad philanthropic efforts through the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. (In case you missed it, Gates  guest-edited The Verge this February to discuss many of those charitable programs.) But Gates is far from finished at Microsoft; last year after Satya Nadella took over as CEO, Gates said he would be taking a bigger role at the company — using up to a third of his time to advise Microsoft employees on new products.

Samsung Galaxy S6 review - CNET

A central, metal-ringed home button joins two capacitive keys for calling up recent apps and paging back. A terrific new feature lets you double-tap the home button to launch the camera at any time, even when the phone is locked (though that takes a little longer). Samsung has also improved the fingerprint scanner, which you can use to securely unlock the phone; instead of dragging your digit down across a sensor, you now just rest it on the home button. It's fast and reliable on the whole.

Those remaining shares will be bought at 1.05 crowns each.

California announces first ever mandatory statewide water restrictions

California's ongoing drought isn't letting up. As a result, Governor Edmund Brown announced today that California will enforce statewide water restrictions for the first time in the state's history.

The next outbreak? We’re not ready

In 2014, the world avoided a global outbreak of Ebola, thanks to thousands of selfless health workers — plus, frankly, some very good luck. In hindsight, we know what we should have done better. So, now's the time, Bill Gates suggests, to put all our good ideas into practice, from scenario planning to vaccine research to health worker training. As he says, "There's no need to panic ... but we need to get going."

Cards Against Humanity starts scholarship for women in science - CNET

"Everyone at Cards Against Humanity was fortunate enough to receive a great college education that helped us find a job that we're passionate about, and our goal with this scholarship is to make that opportunity available to others," Jenn Bane, Cards Against Humanity's community manager, said in a press release. "Several of the co-creators of Cards Against Humanity earned degrees in science, whereas I got a degree in journalism. Now look at where I am. Writing this press release for them."

Why it's so hard to come home from war

Well, I think we’re a completely alienated society, and we just don’t notice as much because most of us don’t have the experience of incredible closeness that soldiers are allowed to enjoy. We don’t notice because we don’t know anything different. I think Western society basically invented loneliness. Most societies through human history experienced tribal cultures, with people sleeping shoulder to shoulder in shelters and hunting together and raising children together. Everything was communal, and we just don’t do that, and I don’t think it works well psychologically. Soldiers actually do have exactly that experience in combat, and then the reentry into this alienated society we’ve created is extremely hard. There’s a reason Western society has such a high suicide rate, such a high depression rate, child abuse rate, crime rate, and so on. Those behaviors are at epidemic levels in our society; that’s the society soldiers are coming back to and it’s pretty shocking to them.

How America's justice system failed our children

Charlie had been slowly stroking his mother’s hair, desperately hoping that she would open her eyes. The blood from her head had saturated the towel and was spreading onto Charlie’s pants. Charlie thought his mother might be dying or was maybe even already dead. He had to call an ambulance. He stood up, flooded with anxiety, and cautiously made his way to the bedroom. Charlie saw George on the bed asleep and felt a surge of hatred for this man. He had never liked him, never understood why his mother had let him live with them. George didn’t like Charlie, either; he was rarely friendly to the boy. Even when he wasn’t drunk, George seemed angry all the time. His mother had told Charlie that George could be sweet, but Charlie never saw any of that. Charlie knew that George’s first wife and child had been killed in a car accident and that was why Charlie’s mom said he drank so much. In the eighteen months that George lived with them, it seemed to Charlie that there had been nothing but violence, loud arguments, pushing and shoving, threats, and turmoil. His mother had stopped smiling the way she used to; she’d become nervous and jumpy, and now, he thought, she’s on the kitchen floor, dead.

10 Small, Unexpected Things That Will Make You Happier

It seems like a paradox that sad music would make you feel happier, but I find that to be true in my experience. My favorite songs that I sing and play on the guitar are "Four Strong Winds," "Crazy", "Cold, Cold Heart," "Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain", "Early Morning Rain", "Only Love Can Break Your Heart", "The Boxer", "American Tune", and several others with a distinctly sad theme. I'm wondering if it's even more cathartic to sing a sad song rather than to just listen to it--or do both at the same time. Regardless, the pursuit of happiness is a fascinating topic, one that I've begun to blog about, myself.

iPhone Killer: The Secret History of the Apple Watch | WIRED

The team built a simulator that displayed a life-size image of an Apple Watch on the screen. Software was moving much more quickly than hardware, and the team needed a way to test how it worked on your wrist. There was even an onscreen digital crown—a facsimile of a watch’s classic knob—that you could swipe to spin, but it hardly replicated the feeling of twisting a real crown. Swiping, after all, is what the knob was supposed to replace. So they made a custom dongle, an actual watch crown that plugged into the bottom of the phone through the cord jack. In a sense the first true Apple Watch prototype was, like 10,000 Kickstarter projects, just a weird iPhone case with a strange accessory sticking out of it.

Here's How Much Water California Needs to Save This Year | WIRED

It’ll be up to the individual cities and towns to decide where they’ll drain 25 percent of the water from their budgets. But Brown’s plan calls for even more savings, using measures at the state level. It’s a potpourri of carrot and stick. For example, agriculture—the state’s biggest overall user—will be hit with stricter enforcement for waste and illegal usage. (Almonds, the state’s crop du jour , drink up about six times as much water annually as what Brown is calling to save.) Likewise, golf courses, campuses, public parks, and anything else requiring sprinklers will have to cut off the irrigation, or switch to drip systems. In fact, many state-owned lawns will be torn up and replaced with drought-resistant landscaping. Ok, so it’s mostly stick. But at least there’s a part that says residents will get rebates for buying more efficient replacements replacing for their water-guzzling appliances.

How to go to space, without having to go to space

In this charming talk, the TED Senior Fellow describes some of his official work to make sure humans are prepared for life in deep space ... and shares a fascinating art project in which he challenged people worldwide to design homes we might live in there.

Tristan Walker: The Visible Man

But then he came up with the idea for Walker & Co., a concept both he and Horowitz believe could grow over time into something big. The largest American consumer-goods companies have focused on the largest domestic market, and in so doing have neglected the different needs of minorities. African-Americans have grown accustomed to limited, second-class options when it comes to the health and beauty category. For men, these include depilatory creams and powders like Magic Shave. Its copper-colored branding and packaging—often the hue chosen for products targeting black buyers, which generally reside together on what's come to be known as the "black shelf" or "black section" of a drugstore aisle—is nearly identical to what it looked like when it was created in 1901. Then there are the desultory products created to combat razor bumps, a problem that, according to Walker, arises for around 80% of black consumers when they use three- and four-blade systems like the ones popularized by Gillette and Bic. Those razors can cut beneath the skin, leading to irritation for customers, especially African-American men, when their coarse or curly follicles start to grow back.

Unlike drones, kite photography insists on staying under the radar

The kite was an obvious way to get eyes into the sky. In 1888, French photographer Arthur Batut attached a camera and an altimeter to a large DIY kite and launched it into the sky over the town of Labruguière. Earlier attempts to make kite photos had failed, ostensibly because exposure times on cameras were far too long — and the kites too shaky — to capture a clear image. But by Batut’s time, shutter speeds had dropped to a fraction of a second. Using a fuse to set off the shutter, he captured what’s thought to be the first clear aerial photograph taken from a kite:

Here’s a Thing: There’s No Correlation Between a College Degree and Coding Ability

An engineering degree is your boarding pass to large companies. It says you have the ability to learn. Coders have to learn and undoubtedly those just out of college can do some good work but they are soon to be at the limits that they learned in college and need to learn new techniques. This is not unlike most technical jobs in engineering for new hires. And, the learning doesn't stop with the first position --it is an on-going thing. I was once sent to head a newly acquired company whose products were based on a small paragraph in my physical chemistry text book. I can attest to the steep learning curve and shopping for relevant texts to read in the evening.

Microsoft's new Surface 3 tablet runs full Windows, not RT

Speaking of proprietary connectors, the Surface still has those pins on the bottom side that allow it to click in to Microsoft's Surface keyboards. This time around, Microsoft is only offering the "Type Cover" (the one with the physical buttons) and not the "Touch Cover" (the one with the flat keys). Really, though, if you happen to own an older Surface, any of the old keyboards, even the Touch Cover, will work here. Just keep in mind that because the tablet's dimensions have changed, the old keyboard covers won't line up perfectly with the device when you fold it shut. Still, I'm sure for some of you that won't be a dealbreaker; you'll be happy to avoid spending $130 on a brand-new keyboard.

Crop insurance, an idea worth seeding

Across sub-Saharan Africa, small farmers are the bedrock of national and regional economies—unless the weather proves unpredictable and their crops fail. The solution is insurance, at a vast, continental scale, and at a very low, affordable cost. Rose Goslinga and the Syngenta Foundation for Sustainable Agriculture pioneered an unconventional way to give farmers whose crops fail early a second chance at a growing season.

The dark secrets of a surveillance state

Tour the deep dark world of the East German state security agency known as Stasi. Uniquely powerful at spying on its citizens, until the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989 the Stasi masterminded a system of surveillance and psychological pressure that kept the country under control for decades. Hubertus Knabe studies the Stasi — and was spied on by them. He shares stunning details from the fall of a surveillance state, and shows how easy it was for neighbor to turn on neighbor.

Meet The 32-Year-Old, Yoga-Loving, Punk Rock, Tree Hugger CEO Of A $100 Million Trucking Company

I've now read this article twice and I STILl don't really understand what the story is. A rich kid who rejected her upbringing only to come back and run the company has maybe a few ideas but no experience in greenwashing her family business? This isn't a story, this is what most backpackers in their 20s are doing. Also, ethanol and natural gas are both really dirty businesses requiring huge taxes on oil reserves. Bio diesel is a nice alternative, but not a solution, just a good first step. She could also stop shipping beef altogether since emissions from the cattle industry is the number 1 creator of greenhouse gasses in North America-even the UN has asked twice in the last five years that we please cut down. She'd probably do more for the environment if that was her tactic, but it wouldn't do much for the bottom line and it probably looks better on the company with less actual effort, "we are thinking of maybe being greener, look at the hippie we hired", than to employ green practices

The problem with "trickle-down techonomics"

Hooray for technology! It makes everything better for everyone!! Right? Well, no. When a new technology, like ebooks or health trackers, is only available to some people, it has unintended consequences for all of us. Jon Gosier, a TED Fellow and tech investor, calls out the idea of "trickle-down techonomics," and shares powerful examples of how new tech can make things actually worse if it's not equally distributed. As he says, "the real innovation is in finding ways to include everyone."

Over 200 black leaders in Silicon Valley gathered in Palo Alto to discuss diversity in tech

"Every single time we get a room full of African-American, Latino, Native American young people — I don’t care if it’s 10 or 100, we’ve done as many as 2,000 — you can get them to want to become coders in 90 seconds by just three questions. First thing, does anybody in here have a smartphone? They all raise their hand. Second question I ask them: has anybody in this room ever downloaded an app? They all raise their hand. Proud. Okay third question: has anybody in here ever uploaded one? And not one hand goes up. That’s because we are suckers. Nobody told you that when you download somebody else’s app and use it, you are making money for them. You’re making money for somebody you have never met. Nobody ever told you that. You’re sitting here moving your thumbs around making money for somebody you’ve never met. Black people moving their thumbs around making money for other people used to be called picking cotton. Us doing stuff to make money for other people is nothing new. The way you make money in this world today is you create your own app and you upload it. People around the world can use your app.

How One Company Convinced Anthony Bourdain To Shill As It Rebrands Scotch

Will this focus on genuine craftsmanship help The Balvenie secure its place in the hearts and liquor cabinets of millennials? Perhaps, but William Grant & Sons is not taking any chances. It’s also reaching out to younger consumers by more conventional means. Eight years ago, it launched an entirely new brand, Monkey Shoulder, that specifically targets the youngest possible Scotch drinkers, in their early 20s. "We like to think of ourselves as the naughty nephew of the Scotch category," says Tom Wade, Monkey Shoulder’s brand manager. "We like to thumb our noses at the more pretentious ideas that go along with the beverage." At a price point of $32.99, it’s cheap enough for recent college grads and it does not seem a waste to throw it in fruity cocktails. Wade tells me that the name is deliberately meant to sound cheeky and fun. But at the same time, it hearkens back to a specific part of the traditional whiskey-making process, where malt men would work long shifts turning the barley by hand, causing their shoulders to hang down like a monkey’s. ("Don’t worry," Wade says. "We now have a machine that ensures that we don’t have to injure our workforce in the production of this beverage.

This Lingerie Company A/B Tests The World's Hottest Women To See Who Makes You Click "Buy"

A/B testing takes more resources because it requires at least two of everything. At the all-day event, Adore Me photographs between 30 and 40 new looks that will debut on the site the next month. For every bra and underwear set, the company has to ensure it has enough options to test for each garment. Each month, the retailer also reshoots a handful of garments that didn't sell well on the site. Today, Adore Me is testing a new blonde model. While natural blondes make up about 16% of the U.S. population, and gentlemen have been said to prefer them, nobody wants to buy lingerie from them. So far, no one with golden locks has sold well, Hermand-Waiche says.

Adobe Wants To Kill Your Desktop

If you use Photoshop or Illustrator for a living, you probably live at your desk, tethered to your standard-issue computer. But Scott Belsky , known best for founding the creative site Behance, wants to change that in his new role leading mobile products at Adobe. Over the next year, he has big plans to turn Adobe's apps for your smartphone and tablet from a creative gimmick into powerful multitasking tools with workflows that are on par or even faster than what you can do on your desktop.

How we treat Ebola -- and why we must do better

It is, to be honest, one of the weirder conference booths of all time. But as Bill Gates, who went through the whole suiting up process himself, said onstage at TED, we need to be aware of the current, often makeshift approach to treating disease epidemics — and we need to do better. “We’re not ready for the next epidemic,” he said. “The failure to prepare could allow the next epidemic to be dramatically more devastating than Ebola.”

2016 Nissan Maxima Preview - CNET

As with most new generations of cars , the new Maxima is bigger than the old. 2.2 inches longer, to be exact, but it does sit a full 1.3 inches lower, dropping the center of gravity. There's less gravity to worry about, too, thanks to a weight loss of 82 pounds. That, plus a boost in power (up to 300 from the 3.5-liter V-6), means this should certainly be the quickest Maxima yet. At 30 MPG, it's pretty frugal, too.

Why Our Brains Love Lists And How To Make Better Ones

Often our to-do lists leave out a lot of tasks that occupy our attention. There's a method to this approach—the list will help us focus on what we really need to get done so that the other stuff doesn't distract. But your brain hangs onto those distractions and if you don’t get them all down on paper, you very well may be setting yourself up for derailment.

These VHS covers for current movies and shows make us nostalgic for the present

For April Fools' Day, artist and advertisement designer  Julien Knez created a handful of VHS covers for modern television shows.  Speaking with Buzzfeed , Knez said, "I created them for April Fools' Day, pretending I was a Parisian hipster named Stan who only watched modern TV and movies on VHS."

Think your email's private? Think again

Sending an email message is like sending a postcard, says scientist Andy Yen in this thought-provoking talk: Anyone can read it. Yet encryption, the technology that protects the privacy of email communication, does exist. It's just that until now it has been difficult to install and a hassle to use. Showing a demo of an email program he designed with colleagues at CERN, Yen argues that encryption can be made simple to the point of becoming the default option, providing true email privacy to all.

Apple's iPad turns 5: Where does it go from here? - CNET

That's not to say the iPad doesn't face questions about its future. Apple tried to expand its potential market with the smaller and lower-cost iPad Mini in October 2013. At the same time, it tried to inject some energy by slimming down the original tablet, creating the iPad Air. Last year, with the iPad Air 2, it added a fingerprint sensor, made the body even more svelte and added a gold variant.

In praise of macro -- yes, macro -- finance in Africa

In this short, provocative talk, financier Sangu Delle questions whether microfinance — small loans to small entrepreneurs — is the best way to drive growth in developing countries. "We seem to be fixated on this romanticized idea that every poor person in Africa is an entrepreneur,” he says. "Yet, my work has taught me that most people want jobs.” Delle, a TED Fellow, makes the case for supporting large companies and factories — and clearing away the obstacles to pan-African trade.


This number represents a 55 percent increase on the same period last year, but what’s also notable here is that Tesla is now committing to reporting its new car delivery figures within three days of the end of each quarter. Why? Well, “because inaccurate sources of information are sometimes used by others to project the number of vehicle deliveries,” according to the press release. This also means that the actual final number may be slightly different, but this discrepancy should be “well under 1 percent,” according to Tesla.
