Apple Needs to Think Different, G'dangit

Ars Technica has reviewed the new 2018 Mac Mini. A few quotes: "The Mac mini represents an enormous compromise. It's rarely, if ever, going to be the best form factor for any given role. Hell, it doesn't even have 'cheap' going for it this time around, really...." "Why was size the most important design criterion? Overall, the mac Mini gives me the feeling that it [...] has been designed for its size. It's small not because that makes it do its job any better—quite the reverse, in fact. It's des...

Conservatives wrong to call for government ‘trust busting’

SACRAMENTO – One bedrock principle of American conservatism has been its commitment to a freer marketplace. As Ronald Reagan noted, “The societies that have achieved the most spectacular, broad-based progress are neither the most tightly controlled, nor the biggest in size, nor the wealthiest in natural resources.” What unites them, he added, is their belief “in the magic of the marketplace.” In an about face, conservatives these days are increasingly likely to view markets as a dangerous form o...

This small stick is a 2 terabyte SSD!

Remember just around a decade back when 32GB pen drives were all the rage? I remember owning one from Transcend, and it was the size of my thumb. It was a gift I got myself before going to college, and for the longest time, had all my college work stored on it until I had enough money to chip in for an external hard drive (these were the Bittorent days).The Fledging Shell is slightly larger than that 32GB pen drive I owned back in the day. It also happens to have a storage capacity of 2 whole te...

Influencers Are Being Paid Big Sums To Pitch Products and Thrash Rivals on Instagram and YouTube

"Influencers" are being paid big sums to pitch products on Instagram and YouTube. If you're trying to grow a product on social media, you either fork over cash or pay in another way. This is the murky world of influencing, reports Wired. Brands will pay influencers to position products on their desks, behind them, or anywhere else they can subtly appear on screen. Payouts increase if an influencer tags a brand in a post or includes a link, but silent endorsements are often preferred. An excerpt ...

Rising Seas Give Island Nation a Stark Choice: Relocate or Elevate

Climate change means the low-lying Marshall Islands must consider drastic measures, including building new artificial islands. National Geographic: The navigational prowess of Marshall Islanders is legendary. For thousands of years, Marshallese have embraced their watery environment, building a culture on more than 1,200 islands scattered across 750,000 square miles of ocean.

Can we still trust video to deliver marketing results?

If you got caught up in the Facebook video gold rush a couple years ago, you might have actually been handed a chunk of pyrite. Let us explain. Facebook has been a hot topic lately with mention of inaccuracies in the video viewership metrics it provided to advertisers in 2015. In fact, they are facing a class action lawsuit. As a result of these suspect metrics, some advertisers and marketing professionals feel they were manipulated into redirecting marketing budgets to Facebook video, thinking ...

Racial bias, even in a nice town like Kirkland

The treatment of Byron Ragland while at the Menchie’s yogurt shop in Kirkland shocked me. Until a year ago, I lived most of my life in Kirkland, attended Lake Washington High School and lived a mile from Menchie’s. Google, with one of the most diverse work forces on the Eastside, is right next door to […]

Cards Against Humanity is selling diamonds and TVs for 99% off and totally winning (?) Black Friday

Half of my family (and half of the Internet, it seems) all has eyes and phones locked on the same Black Friday sales page right now — and, likely to the disappointment of the big retailers, it’s not any of theirs. In the latest in a streak of wild Black Friday stunts, Cards Against Humanity (the wonderfully offensive fill-in-the-blank “party game for horrible people”) is selling a different ridiculous item for 99% off every ten minutes. It could be a life-size cut out of Orlando Bloom for 75 cen...

Google, Mozilla Working on Letting Web Apps Edit Files Despite Warning That it Could Be Abused

Google and Mozilla are heading a group that is devising a way for users to save changes they make using web apps. From a report: The idea is to allow users to save changes they've made using web apps, without the hassle of having to download new files after each edit, as is necessary today. "Today, if a user wants to edit a local file in a web app, the web app needs to ask the user to open the file," said Google developer advocate Pete LePage. "Then, after editing the file, the only way to save ...

After Initially Calling The New York Times' Report False, Facebook Confirms Most Claims Made in the Story

Nellie Bowles and Zach Wichter, reporting for The New York Times: Joining a long tradition of companies and campaigns that drop bad news on holidays, Facebook on Thanksgiving eve took responsibility for hiring a Washington-based lobbying company, Definers Public Affairs, that pushed negative stories about Facebook's critics, including the philanthropist George Soros.

The Graphic Art of 'Incredibles 2'

Josh Holtsclaw, a Graphic Artist at Pixar Animation Studios, writes: I remember seeing the first Incredibles film in college with a few friends. We went on opening night and the theater was packed. I remember thinking that the way the movie opened with the old film footage of a younger Mr Incredible, Elastigirl and Frozone being interviewed was such a different way to open an animated film, and it just got better from there. The whole thing was so stylized and just...cool. I loved the mid centur...

Evidence-Based Evaluation of eHealth Interventions: Systematic Literature Review

Background: Until now, the use of technology in health care was driven mostly by the assumptions about the benefits of electronic health (eHealth) rather than its evidence. It is noticeable that the magnitude of evidence of effectiveness and efficiency of eHealth is not proportionate to the number of interventions that are regularly conducted. Reliable evidence generated through comprehensive evaluation of eHealth interventions may accelerate the growth of eHealth for long-term successful implem...

Controversial Spraying, Sun-Dimming Method Aims To Curb Global Warming

Scientists are proposing an ingenious but as-yet-unproven way to tackle climate change: spraying sun-dimming chemicals into the Earth's atmosphere. From a report: A fleet of 100 planes making 4,000 worldwide missions per year could help save the world from climate change. Also, it may be relatively cheap. That's the conclusion of a new peer-reviewed study in Environmental Research Letters. It's the stuff of science fiction. Planes spraying tiny sulphate particulates into the lower stratosphere, ...
