The last is a particularly big deal. F8 is by far the largest event that Facebook hosts every year, so it’s little wonder that it plans to h...

Ancient animistic beliefs live on in our intimacy with tech

When Alexa replied to my question about the weather by tacking on 'Have a nice day,' I immediately shot back 'You too,' and then stared into space, slightly embarrassed. I also found myself spontaneously shouting words of encouragement to 'Robbie' my Roomba vacuum as I saw him passing down the hallway. And recently in Berkeley, California, a group of us on the sidewalk gathered around a cute four-wheeled KiwiBot – an autonomous food-delivery robot waiting for the traffic light to change. Some of...

How to block emails on Gmail and report them to avoid spam and potential phishing

You can block emails on Gmail manually if your spam folder isn't catching all of the junk emails in your inbox.

Court Says Removing a Police GPS Tracker From Your Car Isn't Theft

Karl Bode, reporting for Vice: Back in 2012, the US Supreme Court declared it was illegal for law enforcement to attach a GPS tracker to a suspect's car without first getting a warrant. But in 2018, cops in Indiana charged a suspected drug dealer with theft after he removed such a tracking device from his SUV, triggering a legal debate over whether you can legally remove such devices. As it turns out, you most assuredly can. A new unanimous ruling from the Indiana Supreme Court has declared that...

L’eggo My Ego! Ten Ego Needs That Squelch A Leader’s Influence

by Karen McGregor, author of “The Tao of Influence: Ancient Wisdom for Modern Leaders and Entrepreneurs“ If you’re a leader, everything you say and do is amplified. Others in the company take a cue from your behavior. When you inspire others, help employees grow, and keep people connected to their passion and purpose, performance soars. When you micromanage employees, steamroll over everyone, or focus on what you can “get” from others rather than how you can serve them, performance withers. Thi...

The Smithsonian Puts 2.8 Million High-Res Images Online and Into the Public Domain

No matter how many public institutions you visit in a day—schools, libraries, museums, or the dreaded DMV—you may still feel like privatized services are closing in. And if you’re a fan of national parks and public lands, you’re keenly aware they’re at risk of being eaten up by developers and energy companies. The commons are shrinking, a tragic fact that is hardly inevitable but, as Matto Mildenberger argues at Scientific American, the result of some very narrow ideas. But we can take h...
