Review: Dyson 360 Eye robot vacuum wants $1,000 for something that truly sucks

Let’s get one thing straight about the Dyson 360 Eye: It’s first and foremost a vacuum cleaner that happens to be a robot, not a robot that’s a vacuum cleaner. Dyson wanted to make this point clear in our initial meeting with the company’s first automated vacuum cleaner, and insists there is an absolute difference. Its …

5 Reasons You Should Update to Windows 10 If You Haven't Already

Remembering all those passwords can be a huge pain in the ass—so why not remember a few less. With Windows 10, you can actually use your face to login into your computer, and once the Anniversary update rolls out, you’ll be able to login to select apps with your face as well. Apps like Dropbox and iHeartRadio will get the feature right away, and Microsoft says it’s planning to release more in the coming months. You can also use the feature in Microsoft’s new web browser, Edge, which will make it easier to do things like purchase goods or login to other websites. Now you can finally stop using “password1234" to login into all your accounts. Somehow, this is even easier.

How to Research the Best Hashtags | Marketing Technology

Hashtags have been with us since their launch 8 years ago on Twitter. One of the reasons why we developed the TweetThis Shortcode plugin was to increase our visibility on Twitter. A key feature of that was the ability to add hashtags within the shortcode. Why? Simply put, many people research Twitter on an ongoing basis based on the hashtags shared. Just as keywords are critical to search, hashtags are critical to searches in social media.

I’m not from the South, and something tells me the marriage of two foods known for being unhealthy will end in tears.

What Happened to WikiLeaks?

WikiLeaks has hit rock bottom. Once dedicated to careful vetting and redaction—sometimes too much redaction—the “whistleblower site” is now gleefully basking in its dump of thousands of emails hacked from the Democratic National Committee—most of which are full of personal, non-newsworthy information—published with the express intent of harming Hillary Clinton’s political campaign. In this latest release, there is no brave whistleblower in sight, just an anonymous hacker believed by the FBI and U.S. intelligence community to be a front for Russian intelligence services. The WikiLeaks project has fallen far from the lofty heights of its founding a decade ago, when Julian Assange promised to “facilitate safety in the ethical leaking movement.”

Instagram is building the anti-harassment tools Twitter won't

Having to create a banned phrases list on your own, rather than being able to rely on Instagram's own filters, isn't the perfect solution, of course. It still means that any person who cares about preventing harassment on their photos — likely the very people who are already experiencing harassment on Instagram or elsewhere — are going to have to put some work into stopping it. But the fact that tools will be there at all, and the fact that banned phrases can be updated at will, is a big step forward.

The Doom Of Your Memories Doesn't Really Exist

That leaves us, then, with an interesting choice. Do we lean into that disappointment, or do we take our business elsewhere? Videogames are both machine and art, and as machines they’re easy to tinker with. Emulators—software that mimics the technology of older game systems—can be used to pump classics up to high-definition and adapt the controls to match modern conventions. For PC games, modifications can be created and shared to tweak just about anything. For a project like Brutal Doom , that means a chance to transform a source text into something that more closely resembles that cherished first impression. In Doom ‘s case, that means building a new machine out of blood and cruelty. More guns; more torn demonic flesh.

Instagram will soon let you filter comments on your own account

The network will soon allow all users to filter their own comment streams  -- and, if they wish, completely turn off comments -- on their own posts. While Instagram has general policies for what constitutes acceptable speech on its network, different words or phrases are offensive to different people. So this new feature is designed to let users take the mood of their accounts into their own hands and weed out comments that use terms that account holders find personally offensive.

Bringing HSTS to www.google.com

Posted by Jay Brown, Sr. Technical Program Manager, Security For many years, we’ve worked to increase the use of encryption between our users and Google. Today, the vast majority of these connections are encrypted, and our work continues on this effort. To further protect users, we've taken another step to strengthen how we use encryption for data in transit by implementing HTTP Strict Transport Security— HSTS for short—on the www.google.com domain. HSTS prevents people from accidentally navigating to HTTP URLs by automatically converting insecure HTTP URLs into secure HTTPS URLs. Users might navigate to these HTTP URLs by manually typing a protocol-less or HTTP URL in the address bar, or by following HTTP links from other websites. Preparing for launch Ordinarily, implementing HSTS is a relatively basic process. However, due to Google's particular complexities, we needed to do some extra prep work that most other domains wouldn't have needed to do. For example, we had to address mixed content , bad HREFs, redirects to HTTP, and other issues like updating legacy services which could cause problems for users as they try to access our core domain.

This Mini NES Raspberry Pi Case Accepts Micro-Sized Cartridges Too

As you’ve probably come to expect at this point, the whole system is powered by a Raspberry Pi with RetroPie installed , but this one goes way beyond that. There’s also an NFC reader here that scans the 3D printed game cartridges (you’ll need to make those too) and loads up the game. Don’t worry, there’s no actual software on the cartridges, it’s all just for the spectacle. Even the controller is 3D printed and made from scratch using an Arduino. This is the epitome of over-engineered, but it’s also awesome. The best part is daftmike documents the whole process, from creating the case to making the controller, so you can do this for yourself or just take inspiration from some of the simpler parts.

Photo of the Week: Hell Hath No Fury Like a Dirty Thunderstorm

This remarkable image shows a dirty thunderstorm raging within Showa crater on the southeastern side of the 3,665-foot volcano. Such storms occur when immense bubbles of gas pop inside the volcano, causing small but powerful explosions of incandescent rock and ash that fly hundreds of feet per second. All that ash creates friction, which creates static electricity. And that is what causes the lightning encircling the eruption.

Democrats at the DNC were divided on last week's email hack

Unsurprisingly, most Bernie Sanders supporters I spoke with had very different feelings about the impact of the leaked emails. Some of those emails revealed what can easily be interpreted as favoritism from the Democratic National Committee for Clinton over Sanders. "It was validation for how I was already feeling," said Little. "It kind of proves to the rest of the country that there was some serious wrongdoing." Tony Floria, a Sanders-supporting delegate from Indiana, was a bit more measured in his criticism. "Here's a slight political scandal in which some officials of the DNC behaved in ways that were highly unprofessional, maybe unethical, when they were supposed to be neutral," he told me.

io9 Review: The Killing Joke Movie Is Stuck in the Worst Parts of the Past

When she defies those orders and almost gets herself killed, it leads to an argument that, out of nowhere, culminates in the now infamous sex scene. There’s no build up, outside of Barbara’s every moment out of the Batgirl costume being spent discussing how she would very much like to have sex with the Batman. It feels wildly out of place, and Batman’s complete lack of a reaction—other than to ignore Barbara for a while after the encounter, and then reluctantly accept her resignation as Batgirl following Franz’s capture—makes it feel all the more awkward. We’re told in the very beginning of the prologue that Barbara, who’s been Batgirl for three years at that point, has always wanted to be a hero, inspired by Batman. But the prologue does not show us that desire at all. It replaces it with her desperate desire to have sex with Batman and very little else. Barbara says she’s resigning as Batgirl because she fears she might be close to going over the edge after the predicament with Franz and his infatuation with her, but for all the movie actually shows us it could just as easily, and unfortunately, be read as that now she’s slept with Batman, she’s got what she actually wanted out of being a hero and can move on.
