  • Here's What Amazon's 3D Smartphone Will Probably Look Like

    The Atlantic Wire - 23 hours ago

    Amazon’s plan for world domination is going swimmingly: They have a massive store for everything, a tablet, a streaming TV box, a drone army, and now they are launching a 3D smartphone to ship in September, the first of its kind.  A trusted tech source, BGR revealed what they say are the first exclusive photos of the Amazon phone prototype, as well as some details about the device's specs. It will also power Mayday, Amazon’s specialized, personalized customer service system. This allows Amazon’s software to make constant adjustments to the positioning of on-screen elements, altering the perspective of visuals on the screen.” The 3D effect will also appear in the main applications, such as maps, the book store and music store, and Amazon's digital market.

  • Who are we to judge disaster selfies?

    BGR.com - Wed, Apr 16, 2014 12:24 PM EDT

    When camera phones begun proliferating back in 2002, many predictions were made about how they might shape future. But nobody really saw funeral selfies or post-crash ER photos becoming a trend. The thing about the selfie phenomenon is that it took so many years to develop and shape people’s behavior that old people are now caught off guard. An entire new generation of people has grown up and gotten used to having a camera with them at all times. This generation is now inevitably behaving in ways that trigger outrage and even moral panic in the over-30 crowd. There was some muttering over the Pennsylvania high school knife attack selfie a few days ago. We’re now likely going to get outrage over the More »Who are we to judge disaster selfies?

  • When Will Apple Release the iPhone 6?

    Wed, Apr 16, 2014 12:22 PM EDT

    Last Friday, Samsung released the Galaxy S5, its latest competitor to Apple’s iPhone. It’s a tempting phone, as our reviewer David Pogue concluded, one that merits your serious consideration if you’re shopping around for a new device.  But before you buy a Galaxy S5 — or, let’s be honest, if you’re an Apple devotee whose iPhone 4s is limping along — you might be wondering: Just when is the next iPhone coming out?  Our best guess: September.  Now, before I tell you why, let’s note that predicting a release date for an Apple product is an inexact science. Like every other major tech company, Apple keeps its plans secret, so that its big reveal is surprising and creates some excitement.  (Also, more cynically, if everyone knew that the next iPhone was coming out in September, then no one would buy any iPhones in July or August.

  • Download: HoverChat offers SMS multitasking with Facebook-like 'HoverHeads'

    Engadget - Wed, Apr 16, 2014 12:15 PM EDT

    Since Google decided to scrap the SMS app in Android 4.4, developers have scrambled to fill the gap. Apps including Textra, HelloSMS and EvolveSMS have helped raise the bar for SMS apps on the platform, along with HoverChat, an app you might previously have known as Ninja SMS. Like its rivals, HoverChat utilises the traditional list-based inbox, but it's how the app handles incoming messages and notifications that sets it apart from the rest of the competition.

  • Facebook's friend problem

    The Verge - Wed, Apr 16, 2014 12:13 PM EDT

    When I arrived at the University of Michigan in fall 2007, everybody said "Facebook me." In the following days, even a passing meeting guaranteed that a friend request would pop up the next time I logged on to Facebook. I felt popular and informed, at all times abreast of what my hallmates, friends, and peers were up to each day. The News Feed was the most addictive webpage I’d ever used, letting me people-watch with X-ray vision. More »Facebook's friend problem

  • Competition and Complacency: Why the Cyberwar Against Hackers is Being Lost

    IB Times - Wed, Apr 16, 2014 12:11 PM EDT

    The recent news of Heartbleed - a massive security flaw affecting more than two thirds of all websites on the internet - has once again brought the question of cyber security to the fore. The general consensus from security experts and analysts commenting on Heartbleed has been that a broad and long-standing negligence and underestimation of risks relating to web security was the root cause of the bug which affected two-thirds of all active websites on the internet. It represents a complacency that's endemic across governments, organisations and even ordinary web users. The president of the OpenSSL Software Foundation (OSF), Steve Marquess, recently made a plea for greater support from governments and companies to recognize and support preventative measures to avoid another Heartbleed.

  • 'Transcendence' review: welcome back to the '90s

    The Verge - Wed, Apr 16, 2014 12:05 PM EDT

    Cinematographer Wally Pfister first teamed up with Christopher Nolan on Memento, and he’s been a vital part of the director’s team ever since. On films like The Dark Knight and Inception, Pfister’s Oscar-winning visual sensibilities allowed Nolan to crystallize his brand of thinking-person’s blockbuster. But the comparisons end there, as the film collapses into a shambling mess of ’90s cyber-paranoia and action tropes that not even the charisma of Johnny Depp can redeem. Depp plays Will Caster, a scientist specializing in artificial intelligence. More »'Transcendence' review: welcome back to the '90s

  • After success of mob-run 'Pokemon', Twitch bets on turning viewers into 'torture artists'

    The Verge - Wed, Apr 16, 2014 12:00 PM EDT

    In January 2014, longtime game designer Michael Molinari was testing a prototype of his studio's new multiplayer project. Choice Chamber, built for the massively popular streaming platform Twitch, promised a new kind of audience participation. In Choice Chamber, though, viewers could control the game's power-ups, weapons, and terrain, either helping or challenging the player as they jumped and slashed through it. "Two weeks later, Twitch Plays Pokemon came out." More »After success of mob-run 'Pokemon', Twitch bets on turning viewers into 'torture artists'
