iZombie: "Mr. Berserk" Review - IGN

And speaking of Sebastian... iZombie showed off a different side in tonight's episode. The series has nailed charm and quirk, but last week brought pain and sorrow and this week brought absolute creepiness and horror. We've seen gore and blood, we've seen Blaine be awful and villainous, but we haven't seen a person or zombie like Sebastian yet. He seemingly takes pleasure in killing people for Vaughn, and Matthew MacCaull was chilling in the role. The image of Sebastian licking Liv's blood is one of those images that will stick to your brain even if you really, really don't want it to. He's a much scarier enemy than Blaine, and he'll be after Liv.

Silicon Valley's Army of Advocates in Washington

Industry incumbents regularly try to convince their friends in Congress or regulatory agencies to stifle new competitors and protect their businesses. It’s hard to succeed when you’re in the capital’s cross hairs. But the people on this list are among the lobbyists and advocates helping tech companies — large and small — navigate the mystifying world of Washington in an effort to keep innovation flourishing.

Sticky fingers? KFC Turns Its Tray Liners Into Keyboards For Smartphones

Working with agency Serviceplan in Germany, the brand rolled out the "Tray Typer," a super thin Bluetooth keyboard that doubles as a tray liner. It connects with a phone wirelessly, is durable enough that it can be reused (though according to the case video, each one was taken home when the liners were given away to mark the launch of new KFC restaurants) and can even be recharged.

Ghostbusters Reboot Director: 'You Can't Take the Ghostbusters Out of New York' - IGN

When asked if New York itself was going to play as significant a role, as it did in the 1984 film, Feig said, "Oh yeah, you can't take the Ghostbusters out of New York. I had moments where I was thought, 'Well we're shooting in Boston, why not?' But that just felt wrong to me. Some of the fans are mad at me about doing a reboot and even I would be mad at myself if I pulled it out of New York."

Techmeme adds an author leaderboard, introduces a linking-based metric to rank by "Leadership" - Techmeme News

Over time, however, we changed our story selection in a manner than muddled what this leaderboard represented. In December of 2008, we introduced human editors , giving them final say on the stories we posted. Increasingly, many of our selections reflected not the most-linked stories in tech, but rather accounts of news events our editors decided were best for our readers. For instance, when a big announcement appears on one of Google's blogs, we'll often post a story from a publication putting the news in a fuller context, even though Google's announcements usually receive far more links than any news publication. As a result, our leaderboard over time tended to weigh sites that explain news a lot more than it did originally, making it harder for sites specializing in scoops or insights to rank as highly.

Blasting Off Today: A Satellite That Sails on Sunbeams | WIRED

A timer will start the process of burning through super thin wires that release four spring-hinged solar panels from the satellite’s sides. “This exposes the compartments where the solar sail material is stashed,” says Rex Ridenoure, CEO of Ecliptic Enterprises Corporation and one of the lead engineers. Then, a drive motor kicks into gear, and the four booms unfold. “At the end of each one of those booms is a clasp that hooks onto a triangle-shaped section of the solar sail material.” Fully deployed, the square sail will be 8 meters from corner to corner. As the sails deploy, cameras will snap a picture every other second.

Quickie Is An Ephemeral Messaging App That I Actually Like

I spend most of my day inside messaging apps. There’s Slack for work, and any combination of Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, Line, WeChat and others for personal… and sometimes also inevitably work too. These messaging apps have scaled to hundreds of millions of users, and, in doing so, in many ways they replaced email for certain communication. That, in itself, makes them a little more serious than perhaps they were in the past.

Spotify Introduces Video Clips, Podcasts, And Activity-Based Playlists

Overall, the shift from manually selected genres to automatically personalized playlists should make Spotify easier for casual music fans. Meanwhile, adding podcasts could rope in hardcore news and talk radio fans. Both could help Spotify get more users trying its free ad-supported tier, and then converting them into paid subscribers. Artists and labels might resent the free tier and Spotify bulking it up with more content types, but it’s how the service teaches people it’s worth paying for.

Seattle’s Glowforge Is Building A Maker Machine To Challenge Amazon Prime

It was the process of creating the first Robot Turtles board game — on his dining room table, with paper and card, an inkjet printer and a laminating machine — that Shapiro says ultimately inspired him to get into building hardware. Specifically he was looking for a way to print 3D turtle pieces for some limited edition Kickstarter backer editions of the board game that got him interested in the technology. And it was the uninspiring plastic product extruded by 3D printers that convinced him a new type of maker machine was called for. And so the idea for Glowforge was born.

Mophie’s Watch Dock For Apple Watch Has Plenty Of Supporting Character

There seem to be almost as many Watch stands as there are Apple Watch model and strap variants, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing when it comes to a product Apple calls its “most personal device ever.”

Java at 20: Its successes, failures, and future

Saab: There was quite a challenging period there after JDK 6, where it took quite a long time until we got to the point of doing Java 7 and so on. To some extent, that can be explained by some of the economic challenges that we were going through at the time but also because there was quite a good deal of time and attention being paid to taking the code base for the JDK and opening it up and forming OpenJDK.

What are containers and why do you need them?

Kelsey Hightower, CoreOS's chief advocate, adds that App Container images are intended to be more secure than Docker images because they are signed by their creators. "I think users want signing, the way Apple signs apps in the AppStore," he says. "When you use rkt and you pull an App Container image you can decide if you trust the developer before running it. Rkt can also run Docker images, but they won't always be signed."

Apple plans to refresh iOS 9, OS X 10.11 using new Apple Watch font

Installing a new system-wide font is also not as simple as it may seem. The change requires Apple to tweak all of its pre-bundled applications across iOS and OS X to fit the new font. It also requires additional quality assurance testing to ensure that the font does not unintentionally alter usability at different font sizes, or across third-party App Store apps. Multiple Apple employees tell us that new daily builds of OS X 10.11 and iOS 9 began including the new font toward the end of March. Apple will likely also push developers to redesign their apps ahead of the new font’s general release this fall.

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.

4 critical mistakes that inventors make

Inventor’s mistake: Failing to anticipate the response of the market. The 19th-century entrepreneur Frederic Tudor had a vision as a young man of shipping blocks of ice from frozen New England lakes to tropical areas, where they could be sold at a staggering markup. Tudor hit upon a technique to keep the ice blocks from melting during the voyage — in initial test shipments from Boston to Martinique, the ice survived the journey in remarkably good shape. But there was a problem that Tudor had never contemplated: the residents of Martinique had no interest in his exotic frozen bounty. They simply had no idea what to do with it. In 1800, the overwhelming majority of people living in equatorial climates would have never experienced anything truly cold. The idea of frozen water would have been as fanciful to them as an iPhone. Tudor assumed that the novelty of ice would be a point in his favor that his blocks would “out-do” all the other luxuries. Instead, the ice received blank stares. He posted handbills around town that included instructions on how to carry and preserve the ice, but found few takers.

keybr.com - Typing lessons

Touch typing is the ability to use muscle memory to find keys fast, without using the sense of sight, and with all the available fingers, just like piano players do. It significantly improves typing speed and eliminates errors. Touch typing simply makes you more productive and it is a skill worth learning. However, many people engage in the bad habit of ‘hunt-and-peck’ typing, even those seasoned professionals with years and decades of computer experience. It is easy to understand, though, as touch typing requires dedicated practice to learn it well. That is why we created Keybr.com, a free online typing tutorial, to give you the most advanced learning experience and let you develop your typing skills faster.
