  • Bitcoins Used to Fund Online Child Porn Warns Europol Police Chief

    IB Times - 22 hours ago

    Bitcoins are being used by paedophiles to fund "depraved" videos of children being tortured online, one of Europe's top police officers has warned. Rob Wainwright the director of Europol, said that offenders are taking advantage of the untraceable nature of the digital currency to pay for webcam videos of children being abused. He said the increase in online paedophile activity around the world proves police need to be better equipped with dealing with cybercrime and the way it is evolving. "Child sex abuse is a classic example of how the internet has provided huge new avenues for criminal activity," he told The Times.

    Engadget - 22 hours ago

    Sometimes, there's such a thing as being too forward-thinking. Take MEVU and its prototype payment bracelet as an example: the wrist-worn Bluetooth wallet lets you pay with Bitcoin using only air gestures. Sounds cool, right? In many ways, it is. As the company shows in its demo video, you can flick your wrist to cover parking or donate to charity without ever reaching for your wallet (or your phone, for that matter).

  • What happens when the world misses its climate change goal?

    The Verge - 22 hours ago

    In the early ’90s, climate scientists and politicians all agreed on a goal that would make it easier to focus the fight against climate change: 2 degrees Celsius — the maximum temperature increase that they said we should allow the earth to experience, lest we begin to encounter potentially dangerous and dramatic changes. Countries around the globe rallied around it as a target, but as Vox reports, the choice of 2 degrees was somewhat arbitrary, and it's looking increasingly less likely that the world will be able to easily avoid bringing the global average temperature even higher. ...

    Reuters - 22 hours ago

    Comcast Corp, the largest U.S. cable operator, posted higher first-quarter revenue and net income on Tuesday showing it could add video subscribers for two quarters in a row, a rare sight in the cable industry.

  • Your Guide to Watching Free and Legal TV Online

    22 hours ago

    It’s a big moment for television, considering the $8-a-month subscription provides something that everyone wants but no other company has so far managed to provide: the ability to stream basic cable television to any device as it airs. As my colleague Dan Tynan has noted, there’s lots of hardware dedicated to sidestepping a cable subscription. Hulu  Hulu’s service is the perfect place to watch free television soon after the shows air. Programs like The Daily Show, The Colbert Report, Saturday Night Live — pretty much anything on the late-night circuit and a good variety of cartoons all live here.

  • AT&T is building its own video service after it failed to buy Hulu

    The Verge - 22 hours ago

    AT&T and the Chernin Group were unsuccessful in their attempt to buy Hulu last year, so now they've decided to spend $500 million in hopes of building a worthy competitor. A press release today notes that the communications behemoth has formed a partnership with Peter Chernin's investment group. Together, they'll shell out millions in an effort to "acquire, invest in and launch over-the-top (OTT) video services." Each brings something unique to the table.

  • Apple and Nike reportedly developing a ‘smart band’ with gesture controls

    BGR.com - 22 hours ago

    Hot on the heels of reports suggesting Nike is done making its own wearable devices, a new rumor claims that Apple and Nike are teaming up to launch a new smart band this coming fall. It’s no mystery that Apple is getting ready to enter the emerging wearables market, but most of the buzz has been focused on the much rumored “iWatch” that the company supposedly plans to release sometime this year. As it turns out, however, the iWatch may only be one of several wearable devices Apple is currently developing. Or, as we have suggested in the past, Apple’s “iWatch” might not be a watch at all. Geektime on Tuesday cited unnamed sources familiar with Apple’s plans in claiming that More »Apple and Nike reportedly developing a ‘smart band’ with gesture controls
