Young Startups Are Exploring New Team Building Activities

Team building is a term that has a bad reputation in workplaces. Whenever a supervisor says ‘We’re going to do some team building activities today,’ you can see the resentment on the faces of the employees. Even though it has a bad reputation, team building is one of the most important investments you can make for your people. It doesn’t matter if you have a great product or the most innovating idea.

Deep Fakes, Quantum Computing and more on Mornings with Ken and Matt On WGAN

Hey, Good Morning, everybody, I had a conversation with Ken and map this morning. They are on WGAN, the morning drive show there in Maine. How do you explain quantum computing? And I thought I could probably explain them pretty well. And Matt wanted to do a follow up on this whole quantum supremacy thing.

What are all the synths hiding in Mutable’s modules (and their free VCV ports?)

Mutable Instruments packed a lot of different sound models into a single module with Braids and “spiritual successor” Plaits. Learn what they do in these videos. Émilie’s work in modular is some of the most innovative of recent instrument designs. Braids and the later Plaits are so deep, in fact, that they can seem a bit like cheating – like the sound design work is already done for you in that engine. But that’s before you begin to appreciate the simplicity of the interface, on one hand, and...

Building community and making connections at Grace Hopper

I’ve spent most of my career in roles where it becomes less diverse as you go up the ranks.

Action Blocks: one tap to make technology more accessible

Think about the last time you did something seemingly simple on your phone, like booking a rideshare. To do this, you had to unlock your phone, find the right app, and type in your pickup location.

For the 630 million people in the world with some form of cognitive disability, it’s not that easy. So we’ve been experimenting with how the Assistant and Android can work together to reduce ...

Thumbs up: can you text 38 words a minute?

According to a new study, two-thumb texters are almost as fast as keyboard users. We take to the streets to see if the public are up to speed The human thumb, being opposable, is a blessed thing: we can hold a pen, send a text or play thumb war as the mood takes us. Today’s digital natives will have learned to type before they crawl, and are capable of bashing out a “Hey, you up?” text faster than the brain can process that it is a bad decision. But not everyone is as lightning-fast: all of us k...

How to Avoid Waste With Your Internet Marketing

This post is contributed by Jason Dirkham. There’s no getting around the fact that there is waste when you’re running a company. It’s impossible to hit 100 hundred percent in everything, and, as such, there’ll be plenty of wasted time, money, resources, and materials. But that’s not all. We can also find that there’s wastage when it comes to things like our digital marketing. This happens in various ways. Our strategies may not be effective, we may invest in ads and other types of marketing that...

How to Delete Apps on an iPhone or iPad With iOS 13

Apple changed the way your iPhone and iPad’s home screen works in iOS 13. Now, when you long-press an app’s icon, you’ll first see a contextual menu rather than the usual jiggling icons with “x” buttons. This is all because Apple is getting rid of 3D Touch. Rather than pressing the screen extra hard to open that contextual menu, you just have to long-press an icon, and the menu will appear. There’s now an extra step before those app icons start shaking around. Delete Apps From the Home Screen ...
