    Huffington Post - 14 hours ago

    Guy Kawasaki might have the same job title he had 30 years ago, but his days of working for a benevolent dictator are over. The author and entrepreneur was the "chief evangelist" at Apple under Steve Jobs in the 1980s, a title he's revived for a new job at a design startup called Canva. Kawasaki once evangelized for the Macintosh computer, and he'll now promote Canva's online graphic design tools, which can be used by both amateurs and pros.

  • Verizon sends email on customer’s behalf without telling him as part of sleazy PR campaign

    BGR.com - 14 hours ago

    Sleazy astroturf campaigns are nothing new in the corporate world but Verizon may have just taken things to a whole new level. Ars Technica reports that New Jersey’s Board of Public Utilities (BPU) recently received hundreds of identically worded emails from different people that all supported Verizon’s demands that it be let off the hook for building out broadband infrastructure that it had agreed to build as part of an agreement with the state that dates back to two decades ago. There’s a problem, however: Some of the people who supposedly sent emails to the board say they did no such thing. “I am a customer only to Verizon and I was not contacted by them to submit anything,” one irate More »Verizon sends email on customer’s behalf without telling him as part of sleazy PR campaign

  • Sina Weibo soars in debut, overcoming censorship concerns

    Reuters - 15 hours ago

    By Alexei Oreskovic and Tanya Agrawal SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Shares of Weibo Corp rose as much as 41 percent in their U.S. debut on Thursday, sweeping aside concerns that censorship in China will hurt the growth of the country's Internet sector and broader worries about the outlook for tech-sector stocks. Investors are watching the biggest debut of a Chinese Internet company in years, hoping for clues as to demand for the highly anticipated IPO of far larger e-commerce giant Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. Sina Weibo's early gains came after the owner of a Chinese Twitter-like messaging service priced its shares at the very bottom of a target range of $17 (10.12 pounds) to $19, and cut its offer to 16.8 million American Depositary Shares from 20 million. That surge caught some investors off-guard because of its well-known susceptibility to unpredictable Chinese censorship and the uncertain outcome of intense domestic competition with the likes of Tencent Holdings Inc. "People had concerns that there's some competition over there and that engagement on Weibo may be challenged in the future, but I think Weibo is still a social media platform, that people still use it every day," said Henry Guo of JG Capital.

  • This beautiful electric carriage is tearing New York City apart

    The Verge - 15 hours ago

    Here in New York City, politicians, activists, and celebrities are renewing a hundred-year-old battle between automobiles and horse-drawn carriages. This time, however, the war isn’t over the future of personal transportation: it’s about the 68 horse-drawn carriages that offer tourists meandering rides around Central Park. The rides are a New York mainstay, but opponents argue that the long days on busy city streets are dangerous and inhumane. To fight this battle, activists are turning to the same weapon that was used a hundred years ago: an electric, brass-era horseless carriage.

  • Nokia Recalls 30,000 Chargers for Lumia 2520 Tablet

    15 hours ago

    Finnish telecom company Nokia on Thursday recalled 30,000 chargers for its Lumia 2520 tablet due to a risk it could give customers an electric shock. The AC-300 charger, manufactured by a third-party supplier, was sold in Austria, Britain, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Russia, Switzerland, and the U.S. (The Verge) The Lumia 2520 is the first tablet by Nokia, once the world leader in the mobile phone industry but which lost its top place to South Korea’s Samsung in 2012. “The plastic cover of the charger’s exchangeable plug could come loose and separate,” the company said in a statement. “If loose and separated, certain internal components pose a hazard of an electric shock if touched while the plug remains in a live socket.” The Finnish company said the problem was detected during an internal quality control process and that no consumer incident had been reported so far. Nokia advised all customers to “suspend use of the charger until further notice.” “We’re working with all our suppliers to minimize the inconvenience,” the firm said on its website.

    While Apple is yet to reveal details about its bigger iPhone plans, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo – who has a good track record reporting on Apple unreleased products – last week revealed many details about a 4.7-inch iPhone 6 including its screen resolution. According to him, the bigger iPhone will have a strange 1334 x 750 Retina display with a pixel density of 326 pixel per inch density. In new reports, MacRumors and a The Verge forums user explained why that resolution makes sense, showing how the home screen and apps could look like on such a display.

  • Wal-Mart takes on money transfer companies with new service

    Reuters - 15 hours ago

    Wal-Mart Stores Inc is launching a money transfer service in a direct challenge to the dominance of Western Union Co. and MoneyGram, aiming to broaden the financial services it offers to low-income customers and increase store traffic. Wal-Mart said on Thursday that Euronet Worldwide Inc's Ria Money Transfer subsidiary would begin running the service, called "Walmart-2-Walmart," next week.

Wal-Mart, which will not offer the service online or in its international stores, hopes consumers will turn around and spend at least some of that money at the stores.

  • The Future of Facebook May Have Nothing to Do with Facebook

    15 hours ago

    In the two years since its rocky initial public offering, Facebook has become a strong business that regularly releases financial results that set investors’ hearts aflutter.

And yet, when was the last time you swooned over some new feature in Facebook? The two big products that Facebook unveiled last year — Home, an Android lock screen, and Graph Search, a search engine — failed to catch on.
