How language can affect the way we think

While “futured languages,” like English, distinguish between the past, present and future, “futureless languages” like Chinese use the same phrasing to describe the events of yesterday, today and tomorrow. Using vast inventories of data and meticulous analysis, Chen found that huge economic differences accompany this linguistic discrepancy. Futureless language speakers are 30 percent more likely to report having saved in any given year than futured language speakers. (This amounts to 25 percent more savings by retirement, if income is held constant.) Chen’s explanation: When we speak about the future as more distinct from the present, it feels more distant — and we’re less motivated to save money now in favor of monetary comfort years down the line.

McDonald's worker has a message for those who think he's wasting his life

The Best Gaming Headsets of 2016

Surround Sound? Most high-end gaming headsets claim to offer some form of surround sound, but this isn't accurate. With the exception of the Razer Tiamat 7.1, these surround sound headsets still use stereo drivers (often a single 40mm driver for each ear) to produce sound. The surround aspect comes from Dolby and DTS processing technologies that tweak how the headsets mix sound between the two ears to give an impression of 360-degree sound. This isn't very effective, and while you might get some subtle differences in noises coming from in front of or behind you through your headset, it won't provide much of a tactical advantage.

Program Amazon's new Dash button for tasks, not products

The AWS IoT button connects to WiFi and leverages Amazon's AWS cloud just like the regular Dash tools for buying everyday items. Amazon says the buttons can be easily programmed to count items, call/message someone, stop/start a task, order from a service and more. You can use it as a control to fire up Netflix, switch on a Philips Hue bulb or hail an Uber. It also works with APIs from Slack, Twitter, Facebook and more, so presumably you can set it to send an "I'm on my way" message to your colleagues when you're running late. Of course, the regular buying buttons have already been hacked to do things like count baby poops.

Get the Newest Version of Windows Forever with Windows Insider

Upgrade your computer like normal and roll it back. Microsoft’s nag icon makes sure you don’t forget how easy it is to upgrade to Windows 10. Once you do so, there will be an option in the Settings app to revert back to whichever version of Windows you upgraded from. You have a month to do this. Even if you revert back to an old version of Windows, you’ll keep your device entitlement and can upgrade again for free in the future. This method may uninstall some of your apps, so if you’d like everything to stay exactly the way you left it, you can try the next method.

How to stay focused and make good decisions

We like to think that we are logical and rational about our decisions. If a problem comes up, we think through each step carefully and find a way to resolve it. That may be true some of the time, but more often than not, a lot of our decisions throughout the day are done unconsciously. As a result, we act first, and then find a way to logically make sense of our actions in what is known as the attitude follows behavior principle.

Snapchat Content Strategy: How Marketers Can Win With Snapchat : Social Media Examiner

To me here is why people use snapchat. The goal will all these social media platforms is that people wanted to be “social”. They wanted to connect. They wanted be “humans online”. We tried to do that with twitter, facebook and instagram. But people started cheating. They only show what they want, how they want it. The way they want it. We even started creating these alter-egos on social media. Snapchat to an extend is realest thing out there right now. And that’s fun. Also the fact your content is deleted the next day is important. Because people can’t really use the content you share against you. I’m talking about your future girlfriend or future boss. Snapchat is just a little taste on how we will share content in the future. But again that’s just how I personally feel. Cheers.

Xbox One can now play multi-disc Xbox 360 games

“Yes, ‘Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director’s Cut’ was the first multi-disc Backward Compatible title added to the program. We know fans were asking for this feature and our engineers worked hard developing a solution to enable it so we could further expand the titles included in Xbox One Backward Compatibility. We’re continuing to listen to our fans on Xbox Feedback and work with our publishing partners to grow out library of Xbox One Backward Compatibility titles and will work to include more multi-disc games.”

Are Small Businesses Spending Too Much Time on Social?

Before investing significant time in social media, you need to understand that "likes" don’t equal clicks or sales. The power of social media is that it helps foster loyalty, trust, and goodwill between you and your customers. Some of your social efforts will bring in direct sales, but more than likely, it will be a gradual process toward increasing your community and brand presence. Social media marketing requires a lot of patience, but don’t ignore all your other customer touch points along the way.

Dark Sky, the Cult-Favorite Weather App for iOS, Rumbles Onto Android

All the Dark Sky functionality remains the same in the Android version, but there are a few key differences to how the app is structured. Specifically, how you pay for it; while iOS customers need to cough up a one-time, $4 fee, Android users tap into basic weather features for free. To access anything beyond the conventional weather info—all that near-term goodness—takes an annual subscription of $3.

The Best Project Management Software of 2016

Collaboration Projects usually have assets, which range from a detailed description of the project or its parts to visual mock-ups. Many project management solutions come with some amount of storage space so that your team can upload files right into the workspace, where everyone on the team can access them and discuss them. It's also common for services to have an option to connect to third-party storage solutions, such as Google Drive, Dropbox, or Box, so that team members can link to or upload files to the project management system from the repositories they already use.

Reaction to Facebook Reactions: Meh

"It is clear that Facebook Reactions are not used very frequently by the average [person] at this point," Quintly Communication Manager Julian Gottke writes in a blog post. Of the interactions Quintly analyzed, 76.4 percent were likes, 14 percent were shares, and 7.2 percent were comments, while just 2.4 percent were something else.

The Truth About Facebook's Supposed Conservative Bias

"I wouldn't put this decline down to the content of the sites themselves," the analyst told HuffPost. "In the case of Breitbart, their likes and comments actually increased between June 2015 and March 2016. In the case of Fox, those numbers include all local affiliates to the Fox network, so it's a broad coalition of sites, many of which may be seeing challenges in the way that their content is engaged with in the News Feed."

Why Britain is beating the U.S. at financial innovation

So we did what innovators do: We went off and invented a new assessment method. In the past, firms tended just to ask investors how much money they had or how many investments they had made before. We didn’t think this was the right approach for equity crowdfunding: With a £10 minimum investment, we saw no reason why someone’s net worth was relevant; and because these were not particularly complicated investments (even a basic mortgage or insurance policy is more complex than shares of a company), prior investing experience also did not seem very relevant to us.

Data security mistakes to avoid at all costs

Tech startups have a strong advantage when it comes to data security because they aren’t encumbered by legacy systems, and instead are able to apply best practices from the start. As a result, their products have never been more secure. But while they’re more secure, internal practices and protocols at tech startups have lagged behind. Credential sharing, limited use of single sign on, and poor password policies are all common examples of tech startups mistakenly not focusing enough on their own internal infrastructure and policies and the impact that it has on their data security . –  Michael Saffitz ,  Apptentive, Inc.

Windows 10 phones are getting fingerprint support this summer

Windows Hello was announced as an integral part of Windows 10 in March of 2015.

Here's what Apple says about iTunes users suddenly losing their music files

In an extremely small number of cases users have reported that music files saved on their computer were removed without their permission. We're taking these reports seriously as we know how important music is to our customers and our teams are focused on identifying the cause. We have not been able to reproduce this issue, however, we're releasing an update to iTunes early next week which includes additional safeguards. If a user experiences this issue they should contact AppleCare.

Apple confirms iTunes music deletion issue, has no idea what's causing it

For Pinkstone, the problem wiped out some 122GB of music, including original pieces, from his laptop after signing up for Apple Music. Pinkstone believes the problem came from the way Apple handles external libraries. In the post he detailed a conversation with an Apple rep who told him that the company found cloud-based versions of his stored works, and deleted the originals.

America's Most Common Drug Ingredient Could Be Making You Less Empathetic

'Big Five' Canadian Banks Sign up for Apple Pay

Three other major Canadian banks — Bank of Montreal, Toronto-Dominion Bank and Bank of Nova Scotia — will also start supporting Apple Pay “in the coming months”, though there is no confirmed launch date for the same. Once these three banks start supporting Apple Pay, the NFC-based payment service would be supported by the ‘Big Five’ banks of Canada.

NASA Wants to Build a Magnetic Force Field and a Deep Sleep Chamber For Astronauts on Mars

Colonizing Mars will be anything but simple, and one of the main challenges will be landing on the surface without crashing or burning up. This magnetic space shell—aptly called the Magnetoshell—would throw a magnetic field around a Mars-bound spacecraft. As it fell through the planet’s atmosphere, researchers hope that the resulting interaction can act almost as a second set of brakes, slowing down the craft enough that the actual landing protocol would need less fuel. Early designs were focused on putting together initial plans for landings on both Mars and Neptune. Now, researchers intend to look at how a Magnetoshell might work for crewed missions even beyond that, to locations all over the solar system.

On the hunt for Facebook's army of fakes

If someone wants to quickly increase their page's number of likes, they can also purchase them from farmers for between around $10 (£7) and $100 (£70) per 100 likes, depending on whether they want to target specific regions. For example, likes from US-based accounts are usually more expensive. You can even buy entire pre-liked pages with large numbers of followers that you can then adapt to promote your own organisation. While these paid-for likes may not come from engaged customers, they can make the page or its owner appear more popular, in turn increasing its appeal to potential customers or followers.

Samsung Thinks It Can Make Smartwatches Useful By Projecting Onto Your Hand

Screens on smartphones have continued getting bigger—as seen by the rise of the phablet—but watches are far more constrained when it comes to size. Not only are small screens frustrating to work with and often hard to see, they result in most smartwatches lacking some basic functionalities of a smartphone, such as having a keyboard to type on. (The Apple Watch, for example, only lets you respond to texts using dictation or with a list of pre-written “smart replies.”) The new technology, promising space to write and larger displays, could be necessary to convince consumers that smartwatches are more than a crippled version of the smartphone.

Apple is still obsessed with the year 1984

" Apple revolutionized personal technology with the introduction of the Macintosh in 1984. Today, Apple leads the world in innovation with iPhone, iPad, the Mac and Apple Watch.

Apple’s 100,000 employees are dedicated to making the best products on earth, and to leaving the world better than we found it.

A collection of cars from the 1920s highlights one of the greatest eras of car design

Along with a good variety of other vehicles, like a World War II-era Jeep, an 1879 Singer racing bicycle, and (rather oddly) a 1978 Mercedes station wagon, the collection boasts an impressive selection of vehicles from the 1920s, perhaps the most influential era of automotive development and design.

NYC presents more opportunities than challenges for foreign ad firms

“Over the past several years there has basically been a huge wave within the advertising world to let robots (that is automation) drive advertising,” said Job. Smart AdServer’s tools allow publishers to create non-standard ads — ads of different sizes that are more likely to catch a reader’s eye. It also allows a publication to determine the best campaign to use, target the right brands and come up with pricing. Its software is also easy to use. Job told me that this ease-of-use was particularly important for Smart AdServer to master. Technological understanding isn’t the main focus for a publisher — content is.
