This robot automatically prints and burns Trump’s tweets

If asked to describe President Trump’s Twitter persona, I’d say he was a can of gasoline looking for a lit match. Incendiary tweets manage to rile supporters and skeptics alike, and all we can do is watch the world burn, at least figuratively, each time Trump hits the “Tweet” button. This isn’t by accident, Trump enjoys the attention. A Twitter bot manages to make this analogy a literal one, and outshine Trump in the process. For each tweet, @burnedyourtweet does just what its name suggests: pri...

Netgear announces two new Orbi routers

 I’m a huge fan of Netgear’s Orbi routers. They offer some of the easiest setup, highest speeds, and best coverage of any of the so-called mesh wireless systems including Eero and Luma. Now Netgear’s original monstrous routers are being joined by a few cousins. The original kit, called the RBK50, came with a AC3000 Wi-Fi base station and a satellite and covered 5,000 square feet.

Samsung Galaxy S8 vs Apple iPhone 7 – What’s Different

'Sightings' of Extinct Tasmanian Tiger Prompt Search in Queensland

Elle Hunt, writing for The Guardian: "Plausible" possible sightings of a Tasmanian tiger in northern Queensland have prompted scientists to undertake a search for the species thought to have died out more than 80 years ago. The last thylacine is thought to have died in Hobart zoo in 1936, and it is widely believed to have become extinct on mainland Australia at least 2,000 years ago. But sightings of large, dog-like animals that are neither dingoes nor foxes have persisted over the decades, desp...

Local SEO Spam Tactics Are Working: How You Can Fight Back

Posted by Casey_MerazFor years, I've been saying that if you have a problem with spammers in local results, you can just wait it out. I mean, if Google cared about removing spam and punishing those who are regular spammers we'd see them removed fast and often, right? While there are instances where spam has been removed, it seems these are not fast fixes, permanent fixes, or even very common. In fact, they seem few and far between. So today I’m changing my tune a bit to call more attention to th...

Introducing Voltra's 'Stream To Own' Approach

Although the idea of owning music may seem antiquated in the streaming age, a new online store known as Voltra is approaching things differently by offering consumers a 'stream to own' option, where users can initially listen to a song for free, and then pay for it incrementally with each consecutive listen until they have fully purchased the song. _______________________ Guest post by Bobby Owsinski of Music 3.0 You’d think that owning music is a thing of the past, yet the iTunes...

dadamachines is an open toolkit for making robotic musical instruments

There was a time when using controllers to play music was still novel. Building them was a technically complicated task, limited to a handful of individuals – most of whom had to keep solving the same basic problem of how to get started over and over again. Now, we know, that’s no longer the case. There are controllers everywhere. You can buy a finished one off the shelf. If you want to customize and modify that, it’s easier than ever before. If you want to make your own, that’s easier than befo...

A startup selling 'bloody' plant-based burgers is ramping up — and McDonald's should pay attention

Impossible Foods, a startup selling "bloody," plant-based burgers that even the most ardent meat-lovers can get behind, was in talks with McDonald's to supply the fast-food giant with its buzzy burger, The Guardian reported in March. It's unclear how recent these conversations were. David Lee, COO and CEO of Impossible Foods, tells Business Insider that such partnerships are likely as consumers demand more plant-based alternatives. But the startup can't team up with the Golden Arches — or any ot...
