  • I don’t want to stream with Ninja, either

    Aug 15, 2018 | 18:58 pm

    I don’t want to stream with Ninja, either A super-popular Twitch streamer has been accused of discriminating against women by refusing to stream with them. As a woman, I think I’m with the streamer on this one. It started with an interview in Polygon in which writer Allegra Frank interviewed Tyler “Ninja” Blevins — currently the most popular streamer on the planet. Ninja, who is married, explained that he preferred not to stream with female streamers: If I have one conversation with one female streamer where we’re playing with one another, and even if there’s a hint of flirting, that is going to be taken and going to be put…[…]

  • These DIY lasers scare the crap out of YouTube

    Aug 15, 2018 | 17:33 pm

    These DIY lasers scare the crap out of YouTube A chemist YouTuber known for his rather heated content has apparently had several of his videos flagged for being a bit too close to dangerous, which comes as a bit of a surprise considering what else the site allows to exist. We’ve seen YouTube waffle on some pretty questionable content, from kids vomiting to feeding your loved one laxatives. Short of murder, it was hard to see where exactly YouTube would draw the line against you — I mean, as long as your name isn’t Alex Jones. But apparently Drake “Styropyro” Anthony, who routinely creates things like DIY lasers, bumped up against…[…]

  • The EPA plans to break up with science — here’s what you can do about it

    Aug 15, 2018 | 16:39 pm

    The EPA plans to break up with science — here’s what you can do about it The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is about to ban science from its decision-making process. You’d be excused for thinking this seems like hyperventilating leftist nonsense. A claim that the EPA is banning science surely seems absurd. After all, how does one make judgements on the safety of chemicals without doing science? But, the EPA’s proposed “Strengthening Transparency in Regulatory Science” rule will do exactly that. The proposed changes were first floated in late April. They were immediately met with unequivocal disdain from the scientific community. A group of nearly 100 Harvard leaders and professors, including the chairs of numerous…[…]

  • Report: Apple may launch a new MacBook Air in September or October

    Aug 15, 2018 | 16:02 pm

    Report: Apple may launch a new MacBook Air in September or October A report out of Taiwan indicates that Apple could be gearing up to ship a new MacBook Air in either September or October. According to TrendForce, a Taiwanese research firm: The second quarter was the transition period when Apple was preparing for the releases of the upcoming new MacBook devices for the year. TrendForce therefore expects MacBook shipments to again post a large [quarter over quarter] increase in Q3 2018, as Apple will be releasing a new MacBook Pro at the start of the quarter and a new MacBook Air at the end of the quarter. As MacRumors point out,…[…]

  • ‘Enhance’: Browser game mocks Hollywood hacking tropes

    Aug 15, 2018 | 12:02 pm

    ‘Enhance’: Browser game mocks Hollywood hacking tropes You know those evidence-gathering scenes in 90s and 00s tv shows and movies that treat looking at photographs like a particularly shouty spectator sport? Where stern-looking people tap magical “enhance” button or tell the computer they intend to zoom in and “clean up” the image? You know, that old chestnut? Someone made a game out of that. I made https://t.co/jTDvjrm9az, a cyberpunk game you play by yelling at your computer like you're in a movie. It's an homage to the classic sci-fi "zoom and enhance" trope. Play it in Chrome! 🕵️🗣💻🕵️‍♀️ pic.twitter.com/E6hOKA3oFZ — Nicole He in Melbourne (@nicolehe) August 15,…[…]

  • Researchers teach Hearthstone bot to dominate Legend rank players

    Aug 15, 2018 | 11:28 am

    Researchers teach Hearthstone bot to dominate Legend rank players A team of researchers from the University of Warsaw recently developed an AI bot to play Blizzard’s Hearthstone. This isn’t the first machine built to play the game, but it may very well set the benchmark for all that come after it. Hearthstone is a collectible card game, like Magic the Gathering or Yu-Gi-Oh. Its rules and format make it a great candidate for exploration by machine learning developers. Like poker, it requires players to work with both shared and limited information. The player that outperforms the other player tends to win, despite the fact that luck also factors in.…[…]

  • Fertility app blamed for 37 unwanted pregnancies is now FDA approved in the USA

    Aug 15, 2018 | 09:34 am

    Fertility app blamed for 37 unwanted pregnancies is now FDA approved in the USA On August 10, the Food and Drugs Administration (FDA) made a surprising move by officially approving fertility app Natural Cycles in the USA. Though the fertility app was approved in Europe last year, has over 700,000 users, and is available in 161 countries, Natural Cycles hasn’t gone without its controversies. Earlier this year, a hospital in Stockholm reported that 37 out of the 668 women who sought abortion over a four month period had been using Natural Cycles to prevent unwanted pregnancies. Since this incident, the fertility app has been under investigation by the Advertising Standards Authority in the UK. The investigation follows concerns over Natural Cycle’s…[…]

  • Turkey’s president wants people to buy this homegrown phone instead of the iPhone

    Aug 15, 2018 | 08:16 am

    Turkey’s president wants people to buy this homegrown phone instead of the iPhone Turkey and the United States are currently embroiled in a bitter diplomatic spat over the detention of an American evangelical pastor. This has resulted in an economic war between the former allies, with the United States issuing sanctions on the country, and placing tarrifs on certain Turkish goods. A consequence of this is the value of the Turkish Lira has plummeted to its lowest level ever. In response, Turkey’s furious president Reycep Teyepp Erdogan has called for a boycott of US electronic goods, particularly the Apple iPhone. In a speech reported by CNBC, Erdogan said: “If they have iPhone, there…[…]
