  • This beautiful electric carriage is tearing New York City apart

    The Verge - 7 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

    7 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.

  • This is what apps could look like on the iPhone 6′s bigger display

    BGR.com - 7 hours ago

    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. Taking into account the fact that Apple has always tried to offer developers a seamless way to adapt to bigger displays when it comes to app More »This is what apps could look like on the iPhone 6′s bigger display

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

    Reuters - 8 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. The new service, which Wal-Mart says will charge lower fees than those currently offered by competitors, will enable shoppers to send and receive cash from family members and friends at more than 4,000 U.S. discount stores. 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

    8 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. Despite every hipster prediction otherwise, the company’s base keeps growing, and nearly a fifth of the time that Americans spend on their smartphones is spent on Facebook. 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.

  • Dropbox acquires Loom, will shut down its cloud photo service on May 16th

    The Verge - 8 hours ago

    Loom, a popular service that offers cloud-based photo storage, has just been acquired by Dropbox. "We look forward to this transition as the next step in creating a home for all of your photos and videos, seamlessly organized, while still keeping them at your fingertips," said founder Jan Senderek in a blog post announcing the deal.

    8 hours ago

    For my column this week about Facebook’s new approach to creating social apps, I spent some time talking to Mark Zuckerberg, the company’s co-founder and chief executive. We met in a conference room at Facebook’s headquarters in Menlo Park, Calif., on a sunny Friday earlier this month. After chatting briefly about virtual reality — he described his visit to Stanford’s virtual reality lab, which I’d recently tested out — he explained how Facebook is altering how the company creates and releases new apps.

  • Nokia halts Lumia 2520 tablet sales after a shocking discovery

    BGR.com - 8 hours ago

    Nokia announced on Thursday that it would be halting sales of the Lumia 2520 tablet in Austria, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Russia, Switzerland and the UK after discovering safety concerns related to the AC-300 travel charger. The tablet is still available in the United States, but sales of the travel charger has been suspended. According to Nokia, the plastic cover of some third-party chargers could loosen and even separate under certain conditions. With the cover separated, internal components would be exposed, posing the hazard of an electric shock. “While there have been no confirmed consumer incidents related to this potential quality issue, product quality and safety are top priorities at Nokia,” said Jo Harlow, EVP Smart Devices. “We apologize to the owners of the More »Nokia halts Lumia 2520 tablet sales after a shocking discovery

  • Creating 'Bioshock' was a protracted, ego-driven battle

    The Verge - 8 hours ago

    Like many classic video games, the development process of Bioshock was fraught with peril — just a few months before the game's release, developer Irrational Games invited people outside the company to try the game for the first time, and the feedback was entirely negative. The testers called the game too dark, confusing, tedious — and one player didn't even understand that Rapture was a city set underwater. It's a particularly good time to tell the story of Bioshock — Ken Levine just decided to shut down the studio behind the game a few months ago, so the piece also doubles as a bit of a eulogy for Irrational Games.
