The E-ink Kindle-competitor Android should have made a long time ago

A cross between a Kindle, a Wacom, and an Android Tablet, the E-Pad is something that should’ve been launched years back… by Amazon, Samsung, or perhaps even by Adobe. Designed to be a touchscreen tablet with an e-ink display and a stylus, the E-Pad closes the gap between owning a digital device, and a notepad and pencil, and conceptually, that’s a pretty remarkable thing. Here’s why…Tablets (or even folding phones now) always promised to be one thing. The evolution of laptops and notebooks, d...

3 fixes for Netflix’s “What to watch?” problem

Wasting time every night debating with yourself or your partner about what to watch on Netflix is a drag. It burns people’s time and good will, robs great creators of attention, and leaves Netflix vulnerable to competitors who can solve discovery. A ReelGood study estimated that the average user spends 18 minutes per day deciding. To date, Netflix’s solution has been its state-of-the-art artificial intelligence that offers personalized recommendations. But that algorithm is ignorant of how...

As hikers head to Santa Susana Field Lab, residents rally for a cleanup

An Earth Day nature walk sponsored by Boeing Corp. near the old Santa Susana Field Laboratory is drawing the scorn of local residents, who say the walk is part of an effort to gloss over the lack of a clean-up in the area after years of Cold War contamination from the rocket engine testing site. The walk includes a tour of the former field laboratory and the landscape around it in a region that includes massive sandstone rock formations, expansive views and oak trees nestled in the hills above t...

Which Trump Obstruction Acts Did Mueller Find To Be Most Obstruction-y?

Special counsel Robert Mueller’s report on his obstruction inquiry into President Trump is like the TV show “Friends”: everybody’s got a favorite episode. All in all, Mueller examined 10 separate instances — some of them a collection of several related actions — in his obstruction probe. They ranged from Trump’s previously reported leaning on FBI Director James Comey, to private requests made to staff that would undercut Mueller’s probe, to his notorious tweets. Though Mueller made clear from...

Netflix says it’s testing a shuffle feature for when you don’t know what to watch

Netflix is testing a new feature that can help you start streaming when you don’t know what to watch.

The idea with the feature is to offer an experience that’s more like traditional TV — where you could just turn the set on, and there would be something to watch. With today’s streaming services, that sort of seamless experience is more difficult t...

Turpins to be sentenced Friday; will their children show up in court?

When David and Louise Turpin are sentenced Friday, April 19 for abusing 12 of their 13 children over the course of many years,  the drama will be focused not on the duration of the prison terms doled out but on who shows up in the courtroom and who speaks. It’s unclear whether any of the children, now ages 3 through 30, will be in Superior Court in Riverside and make victim-impact statements before Judge Bernard J. Schwartz imposes a sentence. The children could speak or have someone else read t...

‘Mystery surcharge’ boosts California gas taxes to $1.26 per gallon

With Southern California gas prices topping $4 for the first time since 2015, many have been quick to place the blame on refinery problems and a switch to the summer blend of gas. Both clearly figure into the mix. But the Golden State’s broad array of gas taxes and a “mystery surcharge” no one can quite explain placed California motorists at a disadvantage to begin with. Here’s a breakdown of what we pay in gasoline taxes, according to the California Energy Commission. All numbers except the fin...

Daily News Roundup: MS Office Exploits Now Make Up 70 Percent of Attacks

According to new research from Kaspersky Labs, finding and exploiting vulnerabilities in Microsoft Office is the new hotness.

Is horse racing ‘addicted to drugs,’ as critics charge? Necropsies reveal strong clues

Half of the three dozen horses that died at Santa Anita racetrack between December 2017 and Dec. 2018 were on at least one anti-inflammatory, according to a review of a year’s worth of necropsies. In several cases, horses were on two different types of the pain reliever. Critics argue the overuse of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatories, or NSAIDs, masks the injuries of horses and increases the chances of a fatal breakdown on the racetrack. The California Horse Racing Board’s research indicates 90% o...
