  • Apple will soon let you disable iPhone performance throttling when your battery starts aging

    Jan 17, 2018 | 21:54 pm

    Apple will soon let you disable iPhone performance throttling when your battery starts aging Apple CEO Tim Cook noted in an interview that the company will update iOS with a new feature that will allow you to prevent your iPhone from automatically slowing down performance as your battery ages, after coming under fire last month for enabling that function without explicitly informing users. While the company previously explained that the performance throttling function was a measure to prevent unexpected freezes and reboots on devices with older batteries, it raised a question about whether the company intended to make customers feel like their phones were getting slower, so they might want to upgrade to a…[…]

  • What the NY Times got wrong about Bitcoin

    Jan 17, 2018 | 19:24 pm

    What the NY Times got wrong about Bitcoin It’s rare in the days following a cryptocurrency correction to find genuinely good reporting surrounding the issue. The New York Times took a stab at it yesterday, and for the most part, hit the ball out of the park. But it wasn’t without its problems. layer innocent nothing argue pottery winner cotton menu task slim merge maid The sequence of words is meaningless: a random array strung together by an algorithm let loose in an English dictionary. What makes them valuable is that they’ve been generated exclusively for me, by a software tool called MetaMask. We’re not off to a…[…]

  • Bottom-feeding asshole removes women in Star Wars recut

    Jan 17, 2018 | 17:49 pm

    Bottom-feeding asshole removes women in Star Wars recut In what may be the stupidest cry for ‘equality,’ and the worst conflation of unrelated issues we’ve seen, a female-free recut of “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” is making the rounds. It’s dumb, the person who made it is misguided, and the men’s rights movement should be ashamed it exists. The new cut weighs in at a lofty 46 minutes (down from 2.5 hours) and features sweeping cuts anywhere that a creature with boobs appears (save, a few scenes, including an action sequence with General Leia Organa). Vitriolic men’s rights activists (MRAs) have been storming the internet and raising hackles…[…]

  • Adobe closes its gender pay gap — now it needs to hire more women

    Jan 17, 2018 | 17:32 pm

    Adobe closes its gender pay gap — now it needs to hire more women Adobe last month announced it had reached its goal of gender pay parity for its employees in the United States, and that it would do so elsewhere by early 2018. Before now, female employees were being paid one cent less than men in the same position. According to Adobe, that’s no longer the case. It’s a great move towards fostering a diverse workforce, though Adobe needs to do just a bit more work hiring a diverse workforce. Adobe’s move comes as part of a Equal Pay Pledge, which Adobe signed two years ago along with several other companies, including Facebook,…[…]

  • Hands-on: Sennheiser’s HD 820 are almost my dream headphones

    Jan 17, 2018 | 17:25 pm

    Hands-on: Sennheiser’s HD 820 are almost my dream headphones Few headphones are as venerable in the audiophile world as Sennheiser’s HD 800 and its younger, more refined sibling, the HD 800S. But despite their spectacularly transparent sound, there’s one particular quality that has dissuaded me from spending the money after all thesIt’s an admirable fix to a very backwards flaw in Adobe’s system. Even one cent less than equally qualified men is too large a gap, and it’s good to see Adobe take the step.e years: The open-back design leaks sound in and out. Enter the Sennheiser HD 820 – Sennheiser’s first premium closed-back headphones. I had the opportunity…[…]

  • Net neutrality ruling got you down? You can always build your own ISP

    Jan 17, 2018 | 15:01 pm

    Net neutrality ruling got you down? You can always build your own ISP It’s been just over a month since the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) voted to put an end to Obama administration net neutrality rules. After repealing Title II, the FCC ultimately put the future of the internet into the hands of internet service providers (ISPs), effectively killing the open internet. And while we’ve yet to see the fallout from the move, some are already thinking of a backup plan. The most popular of these, if you’re flush with cash, is to create your own ISP. It’s no cakewalk, and it’ll set you back about $25,000 (plus $2,700 a month) according to…[…]

  • How BitConnect pulled the biggest exit scheme in cryptocurrency

    Jan 17, 2018 | 13:05 pm

    How BitConnect pulled the biggest exit scheme in cryptocurrency In a menacing turn of events yesterday, Bitcoin investment lending platform BitConnect abruptly announced it is shutting down its lending and exchange services. But while this sudden “curveball” might have come as a massive surprise for thousands of gullible investors, the writing was on the wall all along. The company, which made its foray into the cryptocurrency scene with an initial coin offering (ICO) in late December 2016, swiftly cemented its position as one of 2017’s best performing currencies on CoinMarketCap. Indeed, during its heyday, BitConnect boasted a market cap of over $2.6 billion and a value exceeding the $400…[…]

  • How Hawaii’s Emergency Alert System’s interface SHOULD have looked

    Jan 17, 2018 | 12:26 pm

    How Hawaii’s Emergency Alert System’s interface SHOULD have looked Honolulu Civil Beat managed to get a screenshot of the system that was used to accidentally launch the wrong emergency alert. It’s an absolute mystery why such a high-impact task has an absolutely horrible interface: As a UI designer, I was stunned and embarrassed that these types of interfaces are out there. A bad interface can cause harm to people. So I decided to spend the evening redesigning the part of the Emergency Alert System’s UI where the decision is made to send an alert. Here’s my suggestion: Instead of hiding such an important action somewhere in a drop-down menu,…[…]

  • Slack tests private shared channels for companies to share secrets

    Jan 17, 2018 | 12:00 pm

    Slack tests private shared channels for companies to share secrets Slack today announced several new features coming to its new shared channels, including the ability to make them private.
