Our work to move data portability forward

Editor’s note: Google and the Data Transfer Project recently submitted comments to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) about data portability. Ahead of tomorrow’s “Data To Go” workshop with the FTC, we’re sharing an overview of our work along with some updates.When it’s easy for people to move their data to competing products, the pressure is on us to build the products they like best. And that’s how it should be: we want people to use our products and services because they prefer them, not becau...

Beirut explosion will impact refugees across Lebanon

Lebanon (MNN) -- Far from just impacting Beirut itself, the massive explosion on August 4th will negatively affect millions of refugees who fled to Lebanon from hardship in their own countries. Anne Hamming of Tent Schools International says they have received word from their partner in Lebanon: “The word we're getting so far is that this explosion is going to make a dire situation even more desperate. With the port destroyed, [it will be hard] to have food and supplies that could reach the r...

Anderson Cooper tears MyPillow CEO open like a bag of chips

Mike Lindell is the CEO of MyPillow. It's a pillow company! So, when he claims that oleandrin is an incredible breakthrough in the fight against COVID-19, you know you can trust him. But hey, if the medical opinion of a pillow company manager isn't enough for you, you can rest assured that supplement has been vetted by the FDA! Except, no. To all of this. Oleandrin is a poisonous plant that could maybe do something good for someone, somewhere, for something. Thus far, however, there...

Toshiba's laptop business shuffles off this mortal coil

In from the min-1990s, right through into the early years of the new millennium, Toshiba churned out some pretty solid laptop hardware. I've used a number of their lappy's in the past, across various industries. No matter what I threw at them, be it text, Photoshop, or a bit of gaming when the boss wasn't looking, Toshiba's hardware always proved capable of standing its ground. In recent years, Toshiba's taken a number of quiet steps away from their laptop business. This week, however, they drop...

IBM promises no more facial recognition software

IBM sent a latter to Congress stating it will no longer research, develop, or sell facial recognition software.AI-based facial recognition software remains widely available to law enforcement and private industry.Facial recognition software is far from infallible, and often reflects its creators' bias. In what strikes one as a classic case of shutting the stable door long after the horse has bolted, IBM's CEO Arvind Krishna has announced the company will no longer sell general-purpose facial re...

'A riot is the language of the unheard.' —Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King

Three years after "I Have a Dream" and the March on Washington, the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King spoke with Mike Wallace of CBS News about change within the Civil Rights movement. Excerpt: I contend that the cry of "black power" is, at bottom, a reaction to the reluctance of white power to make the kind of changes necessary to make justice a reality for the Negro. I think that we've got to see that a riot is the language of the unheard. FULL VIDEO at CBS News: September 27, 1966: MLK—A...

Idiots in the UK risk their community for the sake of socialization and bouncy castles

Apparently, Greater Manchester is the New Florida during spring break of the United Kingdom. Despite warnings, daily updates to the number of victims of COVID-19 and the threat of steep fines for breaking quarantine or engaging in large public gatherings, an absurd number of Mancunians refuse to do anything to prevent the spread of coronavirus. The local police? They're pissed. From The BBC: There were 1,132 coronavirus-related breaches reported between 25 March and 7 April, the force said. That...

COVID-19 may be attacking the hearts of some infected individuals

Given that I came into the COVID-19 crisis with heart issues, I've been extra paranoid and extra cautious about catching the coronavirus: I'm a member of what they're calling a 'high-risk group'. However, it looks like I, and a whole helluva lot of other people have much more to worry about, should the virus get a stranglehold on us. Based on observations from medical personnel from around the world, one in five patients infected with the COVID-19 show signs of heart injury during and after thei...

It’s hard to know whether London is quieter this weekend, or just feels quieter. A new chapter for “Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds” no doubt.

Plant-Based Lifeforms

There’s something quite Hitch-Hiker’s Guide To The Galaxy about the phrase ‘plant-based’ – echoes of the description of humans as ‘carbon-based lifeforms’. If it persists as a phrase, ‘based’ is a term that might end up doing a *lot* of heavy lifting, in the same way that ‘craft’ does in beer. via Flickr The post Plant-Based Lifeforms appeared first on Smithery.

Startup Prontoprint

Kinda interesting – positioning itself as a walk-in creative studio, where you pay by marketing services by the hour. “Marketing for all” they say on the website. Which is also possibly just flipping round the standard printshop model, where if you wanted the poster, they had someone on site who’d design it for you too. via Flickr The post Startup Prontoprint appeared first on Smithery.
