Amazon Fire phone review: a unique device, but you're better off waiting for the sequel

Thanks to its relatively petite size, the Fire functions well as a one-handed device. But if you're making the move from a smaller smartphone -- an iPhone, perhaps -- it's going to take some time to get used to a larger handset. Amazon has added one-handed gestures to help you navigate through different parts of the operating system without needing to use a second hand. Flick the phone right or left to open up side panels with menus, settings and other features; a swivel motion opens the quick settings and notifications panel; and moving your head up or down tells the phone to begin scrolling through text (yep, just like Smart Scroll on Samsung phones). Finally, you can tilt the device slightly to "peek" at your status bar if it's normally hidden. Although the gestures effectively allow you to get to different places in the phone with only one hand, it becomes less effective when you have to actually use a finger to select something.

Elon Musk’s Answer To Stephen Colbert’s Vision Of Ambient Wireless Charging: “We’ll Do It” | TechCrunch

More interesting though are what Musk thinks the future of earth-based flight might hold: He talked about how aircraft should have vertical take-off and landing, for instance, which would be more efficient in terms of space, and which would also allow for electric-powered aircraft. There’s another great reason I’d like to see this, aside from the obvious benefits – we want our aircraft to resemble those in sci-fi movies, which almost universally take off and land vertically.

Madden 15 says Russell Wilson is as good as Tom Brady

After EA offered its take on the top NFL rookies heading into the upcoming season earlier this week, it started dishing out Madden NFL 15 player ratings by the handful. While it isn't pulling the curtain back for every player yet, the developers at EA Tiburon unveiled the top-rated athletes in the game at five positions so far: Quarterback, running back, fullback, tight end and wide receiver. Among the more eye-opening appearances on the lists are Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson, whose 93 rating is tied with Patriots passer Tom Brady, though Wilson's Super Bowl win in February provides a healthy argument about his place in the game. Leading the charge for quarterbacks are Denver's Peyton Manning and Green Bay's Aaron Rodgers, both rated 98 overall. Fellow Packers player John Kuhn is the top fullback in the game with a 93 rating, while Vikings running back Adrian Peterson's 98 rating barely eclipses that of Eagles rusher LeSean McCoy and Chiefs runner Jamaal Charles (both rated 97). New Orleans' Jimmy Graham is the top tight end in the game at 97 overall, and Lions receiver Calvin Johnson is the lone 99 overall-rated player in the bunch.

Instagram’s “Bolt” Leak Could Be A New Facebook App Or An App Install Ad Test | TechCrunch

Some Instagram users are reporting having briefly seen a banner advertisement within the Instagram application which pointed to a new app called “Bolt,” described as a “one tap photo messaging” app. Next to the app’s name and description, a download button linked out to a non-functional URL on the Google Play store.

Homejoy Expands Beyond Cleaning With Beta Test Of Home Services | TechCrunch

For Homejoy , the test could enable the company to move upstream into higher-margin businesses. Plumbers, painters, movers, and electricians all tend to demand a premium above the cost of having your apartment cleaned. And that could be good for Homejoy’s bottom line, as it seems to be struggling to keep pricing for its cleaners low.

Apple’s increased spending ahead of iPhone 6 launch hints at grand ambitions

The rumors that Apple will launch two significantly larger iPhones alongside its first-ever wearable, the iWatch, this fall are all but confirmed at this point. As far as the iPhone 6 is concerned, leaked images of the two models, their components, and possible cases for the phones are all over the Internet. The most recent reports state that the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 will arrive in the second or third week of September, while the second 5.5-inch iPhone 6 may launch later in the fall, or on the same day. Meanwhile, most agree that the iWatch will arrive later in the fall, around October or possibly November.

In the future, screens may correct your eyesight problems, not glasses

It’s not just glasses wearers who will benefit from this new approach, but also those who can’t wear them due to more serious problems. However, there are still a few problems which need to be solved before the project can move forward. Of course, the screen needs to be tuned to the viewer’s eyes, and more importantly, their focal length. Sit too close or too far away, and it may not work effectively. We can see Amazon Fire Phone-style eye-tracking tech being used to solve this, but apparently, we tend to move around naturally to bring images into focus too.

Congress has passed a bill making phone unlocking legal in the US

Consumers in the US will soon be able to legally unlock their phones for use on other wireless networks. The House of Representatives unanimously passed a bill this afternoon legalizing cell phone unlocking, following  the lead of the US Senate earlier this summer. President Obama came out in support of the policy over a year ago, spurring this activity in Congress, and now all that's left is for him to sign this bill into law — which the president has said that he'll do.

The App I Used to Break Into My Neighbor’s Home | Threat Level | WIRED

Such services also enable jerks like me to steal your keys any time they get a moment alone with them. Leave your ring of cut-brass secrets unattended on your desk at work, at a bar table while you buy another round, or in a hotel room, and any stranger—or friend—can upload your keys to their online collection. The trick is far easier than having them copied at a hardware store. KeyMe says it will even duplicate keys marked “do not duplicate,” including some high-security keys sold by Medeco, Mul-T-lock and Schlage. Parking valets suddenly require a ludicrous level of trust: KeyMe already allows some car keys to be scanned and mail-ordered; KeysDuplicated says that feature is on the way.

Their goal, of course, was not to simply make a Monet replica, but rather to test an emerging method of printing that could potentially be used in the future to enable high-res displays and print foolproof anti-counterfeiting materials.

Dads Smarten Up, Apple Gets Sticky: The 5 Best Ads Of The Week

But when the Bay Area Council came to Jeff Goodby and asked him to create a campaign that would help encourage new parents to talk and sing more to their babies, a PSA was the last thing he wanted to do. The group's research showed talking and singing to children under three can help boost their vocabulary significantly later in life and consequently their chances of academic and professional success. So, Instead of a hard-hitting or charming video, Goodby and his team at Goodby Silverstein & Partners came up with something that would engage parents at the moments the message would mean the most--not when they were watching a video online, but when they were actually interacting with their kids. They created a baby clothing line that had simple, delightfully designed reminders for parents printed right on the T-shirts, onesies, blankets, and totes.

Amazon Fire Phone teardown: You might be sending this one back for repairs

There’s a security sticker on the inside of the Fire Phone, so if you’ve taken apart your device and send it back to Amazon, they’ll know your warranty is void. Other signals that Amazon intends to be the only repair option include densely populated peripheral cables: one such cable includes two infrared LEDs (for Amazon’s Dynamic Perspective ), the Micro-USB port, the bottom speaker and a microphone. So if one of those components breaks, you’ll have to replace the whole cable.

Plane Crashes Raise Fears, But Air Travel Is at Its Safest Levels

Commercial aviation is, statistically, a very safe industry. The 10-year average of airline accidents resulting in a fatality is 17 per year. Less than one in 2 million flights last year ended in an accident that damaged a plane beyond repair, according to the International Air Transport Association. The statistic includes accidents involving cargo and charter airlines in its data as well as scheduled passenger airline flights. This week's aviation disasters have the potential to push airline fatalities this year to over 700 deaths — the most since 2010.

Microsoft Blends 5 Conferences To Create The “Unified Microsoft Commercial Technology Event” | TechCrunch

AWS in fight of its life as customers like Dropbox ponder hybrid clouds and Google pricing

The other thread in this narrative is that many big companies — including startups that were nurtured on AWS and then grew — are finding the hybrid cloud model attractive. This involves keeping some workloads on public clouds like AWS, Microsoft Azure or Google Cloud Platform and others in-house on a company’s own servers. And for workloads that will remain in public cloud, companies would be fiscal dopes if they did not spec out AWS competitors; if only to wring pricing advantages from AWS. Starting a few years ago, this is exactly how big Microsoft Office shops wielded Google Apps to wrangle concessions on their Microsoft enterprise licenses. What’s old is new again.

Amazon’s Cloud Is Growing So Fast It’s Scaring Shareholders | Enterprise | WIRED

Amazon has pulled off a pretty amazing trick over the past decade. It’s invented and then built a nearly $5 billion cloud computing business catering to fickle software developers and put the rest of the technology industry on the defensive. Big enterprise software companies such as IBM and HP and even Google are playing catchup, even as they acknowledge that cloud computing is the tech industry’s future.

Brainy, Badass Lucy Is an Amazing Ride That Ends Up Losing Speed | Underwire | WIRED

But Besson also wrote the script, and where the film wavers is in the Ideas Department. Everyone likes to think they’re capable of being more than what they are, and any movie that explores that is going to be a high. Sadly, when that high wears off the movie is resorts to a brain researcher (Morgan Freeman, making good use of his Your Favorite Professor voice) in order to explain the pseudo-science of what might be happening to Lucy and whether or not she’ll survive it. It’s an enjoyable enough exercise to imagine what an uninhibited mind would do, but the We interrupt this moment of Scarlett Johansson badassery for a quick lecture on human cognition thing takes away the movie’s momentum. (Also, Besson has admitted that this film is a lot more fiction than science, so at some point it seems unnecessary to explain it at all.)

Forget Cubicles: This Office Replaces Desks With A Giant Rock To Climb

A design from architects at RAAAF and artist Barbara Visser takes a new approach: Instead of the usual desks and chairs and cubicles, this office looks like a giant rock, full of nooks and spaces to climb and work. “This vision presents a radical break with regular office furniture and current working models . . . which all are still based on sitting,” the designers, based in the the Netherlands, write. “This is a first step towards a future in which standing at work is the new norm.”

Getting Over Procrastination

The other part of Oettingen and Gollwitzer’s approach involves eliminating the roadblocks you may encounter on the way to achieving your goal. Identify the “hot” conditions for impulse control—those moments when you’re most prone to give in to distraction—and find ways to deal with them directly. “One of the easiest things to do is to realize that maybe it’s your distractions, not your goals, that are the problem,” said Steel. “So you make the distractions harder to get to. Make them less obvious.” He points to an Android app that makes it more difficult for people to access the games on their phones. Steel’s own team has designed a phone and desktop app that adds a simple delay mechanism to distracting programs; when you click on, say, Candy Crush, your phone gives you a countdown that asks if you really want to go to the game, instead of taking you there directly. That little delay is often enough, Steel has found, to make us reconsider a favorite procrastination tactic.

Facebook Launches Save, A Read-It-Later List For Links, Places, And Media Pages | TechCrunch

It’s curious that Facebook took so long to release this feature, especially since the final version isn’t that different from its tests in 2012. Since then Pocket (originally known as Read It Later), has grown to 12 million registered users. That’s massively dwarfed by the potential market for Save, thanks to Facebook’s 1.28 billion users. Still, some early adopters may have already settled into Pocket. It offers caching of content for offline viewing, as wells as content suggestions, tags, favorites, and inbox, plus a $5 a month premium tier with permanent copies in case content is removed from the web.

As web apps developed, Chromebooks started to get significantly more useful, and these days, when you can do almost everything on the web (and yes, I know Photoshop isn’t one of those things), only having access to web apps really isn’t such a big deal anymore.

Physicist George Ellis Knocks Physicists for Knocking Philosophy, Falsification, Free Will | Cross-Check, Scientific American Blog Network

The question “is it free will or is it causality?” is an inappropriate question, its silly on the face of it. That is like asking “is it large or is it small?” or “is time real or is space real? or “is up more significant or is down more significant?” It does not have to be one or the other winner take all. When two mirrored profiles face one another we may see a wine glass or two faces, a popular illusion, this is like asking “is this a representation of two faces or is it a representation of the two sides of a wine glass? the question precludes an answer. Asking “is the universe guided by free will or is it guided by determinism is a supremely farcical question that precludes a sensible answer, if one chooses to explain by deterministic means the nuances of mental life ones description will need to be so lengthy as to exceed ones life span to account for a few minutes behavior that would easily covered in a minute or two by the concept of free will, on the other hand trying to explain many forms of physical behavior by evoking free will would also exceed the life span of the speaker, both are true both are false, it is and is not a wine glass, its is and is not faces, the human brain tends toward winner take all, it can not see wine glasses and a faces at the same time so it concludes it must be one or the other and endlessly dithers about which.

Eventually, however, it becomes so steep that the addition of just one more grain can trigger a miniature avalanche, though not in a predictable way. Avalanches can be small or large, and sometimes they don’t happen at all.

Google to collect data to create a full picture of what a healthy human being is

C. Zehfus says: the irony is the non-thermal radiofrequency radiation is degrading health, yet this is the prime tool used to look at people's health. See Dr. Martin Pall's recent assessment of the science, showing the volted-gated calcium activation of very low RF and microwaves causes numerous ill effects, as well as explains the beneficial CONTROLLED uses of RF/MW in medicine. Harm is well documented by independent science, but denied by people in powerful places. Wonder why. Sure can't think of why people were told to step away from their microwave oven quickly and keep a distance in the past, but NO precautions are being advised for the same type and amount (even more) radiation. See Baby Safe Project to consider the impact of this blind spot.
