Microsoft won't provide full release notes for most Windows 10 updates

Vague release notes for patches and updates are nothing new in the tech world, but they seem to be an increasingly common occurrence. For instance, Facebook rolls out a new update for its iOS app every two weeks, but the release notes for each update only state that the it “includes improvements for speed and reliability.” Not every user necessarily needs—or wants—to know the minutiae about every single update, but it helps to know why something suddenly stopped working after you installed a patch, and you shouldn’t have to dig for that information.

Twitter has killed Politwoops, which kept an eye on politicians

What elected politicians publicly say is a matter of public record. Even when tweets are deleted, it’s part of parliamentary history. These tweets were once posted and later deleted. What politicians say in public should be available to anyone. This is not about typos but it is a unique insight on how messages from elected politicians can change without notice.

Once you rescue Paz, the guards change shift again - now there are two of them at the top of the stairs leading from the basement to the boiler room. Wait in the shadows for their conversation to end, then follow the guard through the archway and up the stairs beyond. Take him out on the stairs using your tranq pistol, then move slowly up the stairs and deal with the guard near the door at the far end of this courtyard (You can also wait for him to move up the stairs to the catwalk above).

How Those Hackers Took Complete Control of That Jeep

You verify the windshield wiper switch is in the OFF position. You switch it on and off a few times, but it has no effect. All of the sudden, the radio shuts off. An image of a skull and wrenches logo appears on the touchscreen. Rick Astley’s “Never Gonna Give You Up” begins blaring out of the speakers, and the four doors lock in perfect synchronization. The AC fans come on at max settings while at the same time, you feel the seat getting warmer as they too are set to max. The engine shuts off and the vehicle shifts into neutral. You hit the gas pedal, but nothing happens. Your brand new Jeep rolls to a halt on the side of the freeway, completely out of your control.

Verizon Droid 2015 rumors: Droid Maxx 2 and Droid Turbo 2 on tap for 2015

A very reliable source indicates the recently announced Moto X Play will be launched on Verizon Wireless as the Droid Maxx 2. The Moto X is a more affordable version of the Moto X Style (and Pure Edition), but with a humongous battery. Even though this is only a rumor, it makes a lot of sense since the Droid Maxx is all about the battery life.

17 Study of Holocaust survivors finds trauma passed on to children's genes

The idea is controversial, as scientific convention states that genes contained in DNA are the only way to transmit biological information between generations. However, our genes are modified by the environment all the time, through chemical tags that attach themselves to our DNA, switching genes on and off. Recent studies suggest that some of these tags might somehow be passed through generations, meaning our environment could have and impact on our children’s health.

Why Magnetars Should Freak You Out

What happens during the supernova event is an exciting discussion for another day. What we're concerned with now is the leftovers: a soupy, ball-like mixture of neutrons and a few straggler protons. This ball is supported against its own weight by "degeneracy pressure," which is a fancy way of saying that you can only pack so many neutrons in box — or, in this case, a ball. It may seem obvious that neutrons, well, take up space, but things didn't have to turn out this way. It's this degeneracy pressure that causes the big bounce that puts the  super  in supernova.

Samsung Galaxy Note 5 review: Pen-friendly superphone packs big screen -- and big price

If you look at the megapixel count alone, not much has changed with the Note 5's camera. Samsung has adopted a wider aperture lens (f1.9 instead of the Note 4's f2.2), the same one that's used in the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge. Why is this "good"? A bigger aperture lets in more light, and more light leads to better photos, specifically low-light pictures. The image processing capabilities make a huge difference too, of course, but the bottom line is that the overall photo quality should incrementally improve from the Note 4, and is on par with the S6 and S6 Edge.

It's a fascinating history of visualizations, and a look into humanity's urge to map what we know.

New Moto 360 seen near Motorola’s Chicago headquarters

The most obvious difference between the new Moto 360 and Motorola's first model are the larger lugs, where the watch connects to its leather strap. Unfortunately these spy photos don't reveal any new software features or exciting functionality Moto's second-gen smartwatch may add to stand out from the Android Wear competition. And, they are further confirmation that the flat area, or "flat tire", at the bottom of the display will be present again. For more than that, we'll need to wait until Motorola's ready to announce the watch for real.  Overseas regulatory filings hint that Motorola may offer the upcoming 360 in two sizes: small and large.

Reporter Gayle Tzemach Lemmon tells the story of this "band of sisters," an extraordinary group of women warriors who helped break a long-standing barrier to serve.

Why Yale University Library Is Trying to Save VHS

The golden era of VHS ended when studios realized they could make more money from video than from theatrical releases. By 1987, revenues from home video eclipsed theatrical receipts, and after that they grew wildly. Studios used the newfound financial stability video gave them to consolidate the industry and push out the independent producers, distributors, and rental shops. Blockbuster Video’s tagline, “Wow! What a Difference,” captured the transformation. No longer would there be dingy, poorly lit shops offering offbeat movies and pornography; instead there were bright, clean, and inoffensive stores suitable for everyone in the family. The video culture of the 1980s, driven in large part by horror and exploitation films, was a victim of its own success.

Gwyneth Paltrow Goes To Market

Of all the activities on Paltrow’s professional pie chart these days— acting, investing, writing cookbooks, expanding her chain of high-end gyms with Tracy Anderson—Goop "is the biggest slice," she tells me over the phone a month later, as she drives her car across Los Angeles. She started the company in 2008 at her kitchen table in her house in London, having reduced her acting schedule to about one film per year in order to spend more time with her children. For years she had been compiling notes on how to live an elevated life. At the same time, she found herself asking questions about food, fashion, health, and spirituality, and not finding a place on the web that answered them. So she decided to start one, sharing tips makeup artists gave her before magazine shoots, restaurants she loved, unique spa treatments in far-flung locations, even advice from her therapists. Paltrow would test newsletter recipes in her kitchen and call to her editor, Eliza Honey—who was working upstairs—when they were ready to taste. "Like many other things in my life," Paltrow says, "I sort of found myself in the middle of doing them before I really understood how I got there.

Huh? Schools Think Kids Don’t Want to Learn Computer Science

But while that relative lack of access may be a hurdle, Busteed believes that the proliferation of mobile tech creates more options. Regardless of race or gender, the study showed, 90 percent or more of students had access to the Internet through a phone or a tablet. “Almost everybody has access to the Internet through that avenue,” Busteed says. “There may be something to think about in considering opportunities for computer science education through that route.” Schools are also experimenting with other ways to teach students the fundamentals of computer science—computational thinking, for instance—without actual computers.
