    The Verge - Thu, Apr 17, 2014 4:00 PM EDT

    The Chinese web giant Tencent is one of the biggest companies in tech thanks to its popular messaging and gaming services, and yet you'd hardly know it outside of China. But that may not be for long: Tencent recently began expanding into new countries, and it's even made some investments in American companies to start making a dent in the US. "Will Tencent join the likes of Amazon, Google, Facebook, and Twitter?" one startup founder backed by Tencent reportedly tells Fast Co. "They already are in that league.

    The Verge - Thu, Apr 17, 2014 4:00 PM EDT

    Over the past two weeks, the Pulitzer and Polk awards have recognized the work of Glenn Greenwald, Laura Poitras, and other journalists responsible for bringing Edward Snowden's leaked documents to print. But one of the most high-profile TV reports on US surveillance was an uncritically supportive look from CBS and 60 Minutes. Today, PBS announced plans for a two-part Frontline special called United States of Secrets, which promises the "definitive history" of domestic surveillance since the September 11th attacks. The first part of the series, airing May 13th, is reported by Michael Kirk, who was recently awarded a Polk award for NFL concussion exposé League of Denial.

  • U.S. regulator reasserts goal to restrict AT&T, Verizon in auction

    Reuters - Thu, Apr 17, 2014 3:55 PM EDT

    Federal Communications Commission Chairman Tom Wheeler, in a letter to Representative John Barrow, reaffirmed his plans to restrict how much spectrum the biggest U.S. carriers, Verizon Communications Inc and AT&T Inc, could buy in the auction scheduled for mid-2015. Wheeler's letter comes a day after AT&T, the No. 2 wireless provider, threatened to sit out the auction altogether over the regulator's proposed restrictions. The plan is expected to be formally circulated at the FCC later this month and voted on at the May 15 public meeting. The rules would benefit the No. 3 and No. 4 nation-wide carriers Sprint Corp and T-Mobile USA as they would largely restrict Verizon and AT&T, which Wheeler said control some two-thirds of those frequencies across the country.

  • This May Be the First Promising Smartphone-Based Card Game of Our Time

    Thu, Apr 17, 2014 3:55 PM EDT

    Cards Against Humanity (also a former Kickstarter Project) improved upon that model by catering to pop culture fanatics with dark senses of humor. Now Brooklyn-based project founders Luke Stern and Sam Wander have taken the concept to another level by incorporating a skill that many of us love to show off: the ability to find ridiculous things on the Internet and manipulate social media channels. “We were interested in the ways that maybe we could take something from what was happening there and make phones more part of how you’re interacting with your friends.” Just like Cards Against Humanity, the game encourages players to push the limits.

  • New poll shows Google’s Glass, robots and self-driving cars are tough sells

    BGR.com - Thu, Apr 17, 2014 3:45 PM EDT

    According to a recent survey, Americans are excited for futuristic technology that you might see in a sci-fi novel, but are anxious about how we’ll get there. That’s the conclusion from a report from a Pew Research Center released today which asked 1,000 Americans what they thought of various technological advancements. “The American public anticipates that the coming half-century will be a period of profound scientific change, as inventions that were once confined to the realm of science fiction come into common usage,” according to the report. For inventions that are not expected soon, but in the next 50 years, respondents were generally optimistic. 59% said they think technology will improve life in the next half-century, and 81% said they think people who need organ transplants More »New poll shows Google’s Glass, robots and self-driving cars are tough sells

  • Yes, Netflix And Hulu Are Starting To Kill Cable

    Cable companies, you've been put on notice. Cord cutting -- ditching your steep monthly cable or satellite bill and instead watching video online -- is on the rise, according to a new report from Experian Marketing Services.

    Facebook has always been creepy. But now it's allowing you to be creepy, too! The site started rolling out an "optional" new mobile feature Thursday called Nearby Friends, which alerts you when your friends are nearby (and vice versa.) But if you fear weirdos, don't worry: The feature will only load if you opt-in and turn it on. Facebook also lets you decide which of your friends can view your location, and those friends can only do so if they allow you to view them too.
