DJI is out-GoProing GoPro with its own action camera

For a brief time, DJI and GoPro were partners — or at least uncomfortable allies. Way back in 2014, the companies were joined together with the intention of building a drone designed to capture athletes in motion. It must have seemed like a perfect piece of synergy from two players at the top of their respective games. Of course, things didn’t shake out that way. The best laid plans and all that. GoPro went all in on its own drone, but Karma’s launch was wobbly, to say the least. Sixteen days...

Rebadged Relic Undergoes Revamp, Tosses GM Engine

With the recent loss of the Chevrolet Volt, the term “range-extended electric vehicle” risks going the way of the passenger pigeon, closing the door on the era in which automakers tried to lure nervous buyers into an *almost* electric car that contained a gasoline engine only for sporadic electricity generation. The Volt had this system, […] The post Rebadged Relic Undergoes Revamp, Tosses GM Engine appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

"Don’t be a stranger, okay? 'Even chance meetings'... how does the rest of that go?"

"'Are the result of karma.'"/"Right, right... But what does it mean?"/"That things in life are fated by our previous lives. That even in the smallest events there’s no such thing as coincidence."From "Kafka on the Shore" by Haruki Murakami, which I just started reading this morning, after I'd blogged "Karma is an unkind mistress," so it felt like a coincidence, hearing "karma" come up again, and even in the smallest events there’s no such thing as coincidence.

"Karma is an unkind mistress. However, suffering couldn't be better visited on any other group than they who sought to impose suffering upon others to enrich themselves."

"Enjoy, Islamic State crazies. Let's talk when you're ready to permanently give up trying to kill and oppress others."That's the top-rated comment on the Washington Post article "The Islamic State’s refugees are facing a humanitarian calamity." To the commenter who pushes back with "these are people. women and children caught in the middle of something you'll never understand," he comes back with, "I understand far better than your crude mind that these folks were part of the extremist clan who ...

It All Matters

     All those little things that say something that words fail to or actions deny. All those little things that let us know that the moment is right, that we are on to something good, that it is okay, that we will be alright. The way the morning light reaches into our bed, the way the hot water runs down our bodies, the way the church bells ring just at a time when silence needs to be broken. The way a strawberry taste or a daffodil springs yellow into the darkness, or the way a kite tail play...

A friend of mine sent me this the other day. Two AVC posts were at or near the top of Hacker News. But I did not go and read the comments as I have found the comments at Hacker News emotionally challenging for me. As many of you know, I have also found the comments here at AVC emotionally challenging for me. One of the suggestions I received when I blogged about that recently was to charge for comments. I don’t want to charge for commenting because I want this to be an equa...

UAE Used Cyber Super-Weapon To Spy on iPhones of Foes

Reuters reports: A team of former U.S. government intelligence operatives working for the United Arab Emirates hacked into the iPhones of activists, diplomats and rival foreign leaders with the help of a sophisticated spying tool called Karma, in a campaign that shows how potent cyber-weapons are proliferating beyond the world's superpowers and into the hands of smaller nations. The cyber tool allowed the small Gulf country to monitor hundreds of targets beginning in 2016, from the Emir of Qatar...
