  • Apple CarPlay Could Stop You From Texting and Driving

    Tech Media Network (Laptop) - Tue, Apr 22, 2014 10:50 AM EDT

    Apple's CarPlay interface will put iOS apps on your dashboard, and it could eventually save your life behind the wheel. According to a recent Apple patent, your iPhone might eventually be able to prevent you from texting if it senses you're driving. The USPTO published Apple's patent for "lock-out mechanisms for driver handheld computing devices," which will allow the smartphone giant to create an iPhone that can automatically freeze up in situations where a driver shouldn't be using it.The patent states auto-freezing wouldn't require any "modifications or additions to a vehicle."

  • Bland Theft Auto: China censorship weighs on games consoles

    Reuters - Tue, Apr 22, 2014 10:49 AM EDT

    By Paul Carsten BEIJING (Reuters) - China has fully lifted a 14-year ban on selling video game consoles, but foreign console makers hoping to make a killing in a potentially huge new market will first have to find a way around the country's onerous censorship rules. The likes of Microsoft Corp , Sony Corp <6758.T> and Nintendo Co <7974.T> will henceforth be able to manufacture and sell consoles in China through "foreign-invested enterprises" in Shanghai's free trade zone, Shanghai's government said on its website on Monday. China is the world's third biggest gaming market, where revenues grew by more than a third in 2012 to nearly $14 billion last year, but piracy and the dominance of PC and mobile gaming will leave little room for legitimate console and game sales. Console games will also have to win approval from Shanghai's local culture department, which will ensure they do not harm China's national unity, territorial integrity or reputation - or promote racial hatred, obscenity, gambling, violence or drugs.

  • Lufthansa plans no buyback despite rise in foreign shareholdings

    Reuters - Tue, Apr 22, 2014 10:44 AM EDT

    By Victoria Bryan FRANKFURT (Reuters) - German airline Lufthansa dismissed the risk of it coming under undue foreign influence despite the percentage of non-Germans owning its shares rising to more than 40 percent, a move that could trigger a defensive buyback of its shares. It said an analysis of its shareholder register gave no reason to believe there was any immediate danger of excessive foreign control. It gave no further explanation in a statement on Tuesday, though its website said its biggest groups of shareholders after German investors were from the United States, Luxembourg, the Cayman Islands, Britain and Canada. Aside from a share buyback, other steps it could potentially take to fend off a threat of foreign control include a new share issue or requesting foreign shareholders sell their stock.

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

    IB Times - Tue, Apr 22, 2014 10:42 AM EDT

    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.

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 - Tue, Apr 22, 2014 10:40 AM EDT

    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. ...

  • Comcast's profit rises; company adds video subscribers

    Reuters - Tue, Apr 22, 2014 10:37 AM EDT

    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. On the cable side, Comcast added 24,000 net video subscribers in the first quarter, which surprised Wall Street analysts who expected a loss of 26,000 net subscribers, according to StreetAccount. Last year's fourth quarter saw the first cable video subscriber gain in more than six years for Comcast. Comcast's high speed Internet growth slowed in the quarter.

  • Your Guide to Watching Free and Legal TV Online

    Tue, Apr 22, 2014 10:33 AM EDT

    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 - Tue, Apr 22, 2014 10:22 AM EDT

    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. AT&T's influence is obvious: the company has a nationwide presence with over 110 million wireless subscribers and over 16 million broadband customers.
