Experience: I live in the 1990s

We have a Spice Girls calendar on the door and an old VHS player – I watch my Vicar of Dibley box set on itI was born in 1998, at the tail end of the decade I love. Titanic was in cinemas, Britney Spears released … Baby One More Time, Geri Halliwell left the Spice Girls and Apple released the bright turquoise iMac computer.I was too young to appreciate those things, but my first home in Mansfield was full of 90s decor. I loved the fun of it. The hallway was decorated in tongue and groove wood pa...

‘This is the age of waste’: the show about our throwaway addiction and how to cure it

It is now 100 times more lucrative to mine gold from e-dumps than from the ground. Yet 70 years ago, we barely threw anything away at all. Can design change our disposable culture?How will this age be remembered? After the stone age, the bronze age, the steam age and the information age, what material or innovation will most define the current era? According to a new exhibition at the Design Museum, the most ubiquitous hallmark of the Anthropocene is not a gamechanging material, nor the mastery ...

As Big Tech Gives In To Big Government, Everyone In Russia Is Harmed

Google and Apple opened offices in Russia. Then Putin pressured them to delete his opposition’s Smart Voting app – and they caved. “This episode is a powerful reminder that old-fashioned force can decisively tighten a state’s grip on the web.” – Wired

Humans won't be able to control a superintelligent AI, according to a study

Machines already perform certain tasks without humans understanding how they learned it. Reuters A Max-Planck Institute study suggests humans couldn't prevent an AI from making its own choices. The researchers used Alan Turing's "halting problem" to test their theory. Programming a superintelligent AI with "containment algorithms" or rules would be futile. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. It may not be theoretically possible to predict the actions of artifici...

The pure hell of managing your JPEGs

Hello and welcome back to Equity, TechCrunch’s venture capital-focused podcast, where we unpack the numbers behind the headlines.

Samsung Announces Next Generation of Foldable Smartphones

This morning Samsung announced their next generation of foldable smartphones, which are on their way downwards in price and, the company claims, upwards in reliability. The fact that Apple has not released a folding smartphone—analysts' best guesses on that are for sometime in 2023—would suggest that folding screens can't be done well yet, but Samsung has been devoting a ton of resources towards proving they can.Thus Samsung pulled the sheets off of the Galaxy Z Fold3, a larger phone that unfold...

This outdoor recyclable cooler uses wool insulation to keep your drinks cool, and comes with its own charcuterie board lid!

Wool has a pretty good reputation as an insulating material, but you don’t instantly think of wool being used to keep something cool. Sure, woolen sweaters, mitts, socks, caps, they’re all used to trap your body heat and keep you warm, but with insulation, the inverse is true too! Meet the Wooly Eco-Friendly Cooler, an outdoor cooler that uses eco-friendly wool (as opposed to chemical insulants) to keep your cool drinks cool… and as an added bonus, it comes with a lid that doubles up a...

This new AirPods Pro case takes on a barrel shape to fit in pockets with your other EDC items!

Antón visualized an AirPods Pro case concept that holds each AirPods Pro in vertical placement, swapping out a rectangular build for a barrel-shaped case. The new case for AirPods Pros is even wider than the previous generation of AirPods. Wedging that case into your pocket between your keys, wallet, and other EDC items is uncomfortable and makes our pockets too bulky. Iván Antón, a product and graphic designer based in Madrid, recently visualized an AirPods Pro Case concept that gives the case...

This air purifier uses a plasma field to catch the germs and pollutants that your regular purifier can’t

Going above and beyond anything your HEPA-based air purifiers can do (or even some of the UV ones), OneLife X uses plasma-field technology to purify the air… yes, the same plasma energy found in our sun. The OneLife X traps and eliminates 99.99% of all airborne particles, catching particles as small as 0.01 micrometers (that’s 10 times smaller than the Coronavirus), and runs indefinitely without ever requiring a filter replacement.

6 Best Wireless Chargers for Smart Phones & Devices (Apple & Android)

Charging your device wirelessly is an ingenious invention when you think about it. Simply placing your smartphone or smart device on a pad to let electricity flow through the grid in the charger and into your device while you sleep must have seemed like something out of Star Trek even a decade ago. While using a wireless charger is incredibly simple, picking the one that is best for your needs can be challenging. Options such as design, power level, and form factor can affect the effectiveness o...

Why Are Telecom Companies So Bad At Media?

“Joseph Epstein once wrote that “Of the seven deadly sins, only envy is no fun at all.” He must have been talking about the telecom chief executives. Envy is the driving force behind their explorations — and the reason their efforts repeatedly fail. They are almost always envious of the success of Internet-based companies. They hated Google for making money from advertising. They hated Apple for making money from music. They were envious of Netflix making the big dollars from streaming.” Om Mal...

NPR And PRX To Offer Paid Subscription Option For Podcasts

UserZoom raises $100M, acquires EnjoyHQ, to grow its platform to improve UX and other interactive design elements

Graphic designer Paul Rand once famously said that the public was more familiar with bad design than good design. While he was referring to most of the design in the world being “bad”, these days that phrase might take on a second meaning: people typically only notice and talk about (and usually complain about) design when it is ugly, or works badly. Conversely, if it’s good, and it works, you don’t hear much. Today a startup called UserZoom that has built a platform used by companies like Googl...

Google Podcasts Has An Extremism Problem

“Even in the world of podcasting, Google Podcasts … stands alone among major platforms in its tolerance of hate speech and other extremist content. A recent nonexhaustive search turned up more than two dozen podcasts from white supremacists and pro-Nazi groups, offering a buffet of slurs and conspiracy theories. None of the podcasts appeared on Apple Podcasts, Spotify or Stitcher.” – The New York Times

Good Luck Watching The Oscar Contenders In The UK

How “democratic” are these streaming Oscars when they’re almost impossible to find, and expensive to subscribe to, in the UK? The coronavirus, and attendant openings and lockdowns, is mostly to blame, of course, but also: “Streaming infrastructure in the UK is less well-established than in the US, so outside major players such as Netflix, Amazon, Disney+ and Apple, distributors do not have the deals in place for straightforward online premieres.” – The Guardian (UK)

Martin Scorsese: How Streaming Is Killing The Movie Art

Scorsese acknowledges streamers benefit his career (without Netflix there would be no “The Irishman,” and without Apple there would be no “Killers of the Flower Moon” on the way), but writes “the art of cinema is being systematically devalued, sidelined, demeaned, and reduced to its lowest common denominator” by conceptualization of films as “content.” – Harper’s
