Scientists Are Working On Ways To Swap the Needle For a Pill

An anonymous reader quotes a report from NPR: One team of scientists, from MIT's Koch Institute for Integrative Cancer Research and Harvard's Brigham and Women's Hospital, developed a system to deliver insulin that actually still uses a needle -- but is so small you can swallow it and the injection doesn't hurt. They built a pea-size device containing a spring that ejects a tiny dart of solid insulin into the wall of the stomach, says gastroenterologist Carlo Giovanni Traverso, an associate phys...

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos had a snappy response to the National Enquirer's allegations that taking intimate selfies showed poor business judgment (AMZN)

Jeff Bezos says that the National Enquirer argued that it would be in the public interest to publish intimate private photos of him, because they reflect on his judgment as the CEO of Amazon. Bezos had a snappy response: He personally built Amazon up to become one of the most valuable and important companies in the world. "I will let those results speak for themselves." Despite Bezos' snappy comeback, it's worth noting that his divorce from wife MacKenzie Bezos does carry some risks for Amazon...

Ex-Cons Create 'Instagram For Prisons,' and Wardens Are Fine With That

Bloomberg's Olivia Carville writes about three apps that are offering a cheaper way for families to connect with incarcerated loved ones. Here's an excerpt from her report: Pigeonly and its ilk have hit on a communication model -- a necessarily inelegant one -- that meets inmates' desire for a more tangible connection while serving the social-media habits of their loved ones. One of the apps, Flikshop, has been affectionately dubbed the "Instagram for prisons." It's an imperfect metaphor perhaps...

Google makes it easier for cheap phones and smart devices to encrypt your data

Encryption is an important part of the whole securing-your-data package, but it’s easy to underestimate the amount of complexity it adds to any service or device. One part of that is the amount of processing encryption takes — an amount that could be impractical on small or low-end devices. Google wants to change that with a highly efficient new method called Adiantum. Here’s the problem. While encryption is in a way just transforming one block of data reversibly into another, that process is...

Review: Optoma’s UHL55 is a versatile and flawed 4K projector with Google Assistant and Alexa

There’s no home theater experience quite like a giant projected screen. TVs get bigger by the year, but once you cross the 65-inch mark, prices increase exponentially – and good luck trying to find a 150-inch TV. For the average person, a projector is the best way to go big. But projectors are also stuck in the past. Most have none of the smart features we’ve come to expect from our TVs, acting simply as displays for our cable boxes and streaming devices. The ones that are smart tend to be of th...

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos says he is being blackmailed with nude selfies by AMI, owner of the National Enquirer and reportedly protector of the president’s reputation, over claims the publisher has acted as a political operative.

Amazon at times used Flex drivers' tips to cover promised base pay, investigation finds

Amazon sometimes dipped into tips earned by contracted delivery drivers for its 'Flex' service to cover the base pay they'd been promised, a Los Angeles Times review of emails and receipts shows. They're not the only contractor-supported delivery giant playing hinky with tips. Instacart and DoorDash have caught criticism for doing the same. As Amazon continues to grow, it increasingly relies on contractors to meet delivery demand. They aren't employees, so they don't get benefits. Tips help. A...
