The gender wage gap is shrinking among computer programmers, but it’s still quite large

Glassdoor has released its latest gender pay gap data analysis. In the U.S., the unadjusted pay gap comes in at 21.4 percent, meaning women make just $0.79 for every $1 men earn. But, when controlling for variables like age, education, location, experience, occupation and industry, the pay gap is 4.9 percent. That’s a slight improvement from three years ago, when Glassdoor did its first analysis. That means, women make about $0.95 cents for every $1 men make. In the tech industry, there is an...

Bill That Would Restore Net Neutrality Moves Forward Despite Telecom's Best Efforts To Kill It

An anonymous reader quotes a report from Motherboard: Last month, Democrats introduced a simple three page bill that would do one thing: restore FCC net neutrality rules and the agency's authority over ISPs, both stripped away by a hugely-controversial decision by the agency in late 2017. Tuesday morning, the Save the Internet Act passed through a key House committee vote and markup session -- despite some last-minute efforts by big telecom to weaken the bill. "Net neutrality is coming back wi...

Former NEA partner Jon Sakoda takes the wraps off his new, Cisco-backed venture fund, Decibel

Jon Sakoda needed to decompress, he says. The founder-turned-venture investor had logged a dozen years with the investing heavyweight New Enterprise Associates after selling his last startup to Symantec in 2006, and what he wanted by last summer was more time with his kids, and less time with his phone, which he turned off for three weeks. “I can’t recommend it enough,” says Sakoda, who has since returned to work and is today taking the wraps off his new venture firm, Decibel, a term sometime...

Xiaomi’s 100W charger could fill up your phone’s battery in less than 20 minutes

As exciting as the latest innovations in smartphone design over the past several months have been, many of the key technologies that power those phones aren't advancing at quite the same speed. For example, it still takes more than two hours to fully charge the iPhone XS from 0% to 100% with the charger that comes in the package. Even modern "fast charging" technology, while useful, isn't likely to blow anyone away.But the dream of fully charging your phone in minutes might not be as dis...

Here’s why the Huawei P30 Pro’s camera could redefine smartphone photography

Huawei‘s P20 Pro and Matte 20 Pro had the best camera hardware of any smartphone in 2017, bar none. Sure, the Pixel 3 had my favorite camera – Google’s image processing is still the best – but Huawei managed to combine solid, versatile software with a giant camera sensor and triple lens setup that remains unmatched a year later. The P20 Pro remained at the top of DxOMark until the P30 and P30 Pro were revealed today. My point is, it would’ve been easy for Huawei to just make a minor tweak here o...

Breaking smartphone addiction: 10 Designs to save us from electronic enslavement

I read a pretty scary statistic online, which outlines that the average person stares at their smartphone screen for a minimum of 3 hours a day. In fact, that number went from 0.3 hours to 3.3 hours between 2008 and 2017. Today, it’s anywhere between 4-6 hours, which is anywhere around 30% of the time we spend awake. That’s 30% of our waking life spent staring at pixels. Mike Elgan points out that if we spent that time reading books, we could literally read upward of 200 books PER YEAR.So how ex...
