  • When to quit? An entrepreneur’s guide to pulling the plug

    Mar 23, 2019 | 14:30 pm

    When to quit? An entrepreneur’s guide to pulling the plug If you believe the pop-psych literature, perseverance is the most predictive characteristic of successful people. But isn’t knowing when to quit equally important for a satisfied and fulfilled life as an entrepreneur? The basic narrative is that anything worth doing will have major setbacks, and in the face of adversity what you must do is get up, dust yourself off, and try again. I am living proof of this axiom. Of my five to six startups (depends on how you count them), half have failed, and each time I licked my wounds and started again. But perseverance is only part…[…]

  • 4 ways social media platforms can stop hateful content after terror attacks

    Mar 23, 2019 | 12:00 pm

    4 ways social media platforms can stop hateful content after terror attacks The deadly attack on two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, in which 50 people were killed and many others critically injured, was streamed live on Facebook by the man accused of carrying it out. It was then quickly shared across social media platforms. Versions of the livestream attack video stayed online for a worrying amount of time. A report by the Guardian found that one video stayed on Facebook for six hours and another on YouTube for three. For many, the quick and seemingly unstoppable spread of this video typifies everything that is wrong with social media: toxic, hate-filled content…[…]

  • Smart grids are essential to prevent old power infrastructure from holding back the US economy

    Mar 23, 2019 | 08:30 am

    Smart grids are essential to prevent old power infrastructure from holding back the US economy In March 2018, the FBI and Department of Homeland Security (DHS) released a report detailing how Russian operatives had launched a handful of attacks across segments of the US’s critical infrastructure, including the power grid. The report spurred a wave of headlines claiming that Russia would soon be able to take over parts of the power grid as it did in Ukraine in 2015. Grid modernization is vital to the future of the US economy, and recent events have underscored a particularly vulnerable sector that needs to be addressed in the coming years. Unfortunately, this is a longstanding issue, and…[…]

  • Machine learning academics are flocking to tech giants and that might be a problem

    Mar 23, 2019 | 07:19 am

    Machine learning academics are flocking to tech giants and that might be a problem The die is very much cast when it comes to the growth of machine learning. With the expansion of tech companies like Google, Amazon and Uber, artificial intelligence-based research and products is a growth industry that’s only just getting started. Research from the International Data Commission forecasts that spending on AI and ML will rise from $12 billion in 2017 to $57.6 billion by 2021. The skyrocketing research funding into these fields is mirrored by the resulting patents being filed, with machine learning patents increasing by 34% between 2013 and 2017. As the number of commercial products that are built on these…[…]

  • CHEAP: Our beloved UE BOOM 3 now has TOO MUCH DISCOUNT

    Mar 23, 2019 | 07:00 am

    CHEAP: Our beloved UE BOOM 3 now has TOO MUCH DISCOUNT Welcome to CHEAP, our brand-new series about things that are good, but most of all, cheap. CHEAP! If there’s one thing I love, it’s portable Bluetooth speakers. So, when I found out that the Ultimate Ears BOOM 3 is selling for its lowest ever price ($119.99 to be exact), I knew one thing: I had to tell you. I’m not entirely sure when my love affair with portable sound began – quite possibly with the X-mini. But these days, the technology has advanced incredibly. And my favorite of this new wave? The BOOM 3. Hell, I even wrote a love…[…]

  • Why banning phones from schools is a backward step for education

    Mar 23, 2019 | 02:30 am

    Why banning phones from schools is a backward step for education Schools and governments around the world are struggling to figure out how to deal with smartphones in the classroom. Last year, France passed a law that banned students from using smart devices at school, and now in the UK politicians are discussing joining in, with UK schools minister Nick Gibb recently saying there should be a new policy introduced to ban phones from schools. To me, and probably others in edtech, this whole discussion feels like a major dose of deja vu. In 2012, when I was working on building the Kahoot! platform, I was invited to a round table…[…]

  • Dyson’s V11 vacuum automatically changes its suction power to last longer

    Mar 22, 2019 | 17:01 pm

    Dyson’s V11 vacuum automatically changes its suction power to last longer Last year, Dyson promised it would no longer develop corded vacuums, because, well, cords are annoying. But battery life is limited. When I reviewed the V10 last year, I had to constantly think about which power setting to use – do I want more suction or longer runtime? Dyson’s new V11 Torque Drive makes that a concern of the past. Dyson’s stuck a 20 percent more powerful motor and bigger battery in the vacuum, but the biggest change is the V11’s Dynamic Load Sensor. The DLS is able to detect the resistance on the motorized brush head and adjust suction…[…]

  • You can now play scratchcards with Bitcoin, thanks to the Lightning Network

    Mar 22, 2019 | 11:30 am

    You can now play scratchcards with Bitcoin, thanks to the Lightning Network The Lightning Network is where all the weird and wonderful use cases of Bitcoin micro-payments come to life. You can order a Coke, feed chickens, dispense candy, and even play roulette or Pokémon, all courtesy of the Bitcoin sidechain. But thanks to one enterprising dev, the Lightning Network now has scratchcards. This one has 1,000,000 Satoshis (0.01 BTC) hidden in it. That’s about $40 at the time of writing, not too bad for a scratchcard that might only cost you a few cents worth of Bitcoin. How does it work? A scratchcard is created when someone writes something that can…[…]

  • Two months on, the Honor View 20 is still one of the best mid-range phones you can buy

    Mar 22, 2019 | 11:21 am

    Two months on, the Honor View 20 is still one of the best mid-range phones you can buy Late last year, I flew to Hong Kong to see the the launch of the Honor View 20 first hand. This phone was notable for three reasons. Firstly, it was the second commercially available phone to ship with a 48MP rear camera. Secondly, it was the first phone to come with a punch-hole camera, beating the Samsung Galaxy 10 to the punch. Finally, it is among the first Honor phones to come with Magic UI, rather than EMUI. When you’ve got a phone that’s so groundbreaking, you’ve got to resist the urge to make any snap judgements. After all, the…[…]

  • PSA: MetaMask reveals your Ethereum address to sites you visit, here’s how to hide it

    Mar 22, 2019 | 11:07 am

    PSA: MetaMask reveals your Ethereum address to sites you visit, here’s how to hide it There’s a setting that popular Ethereum service MetaMask doesn’t enable by default, and it’s putting users‘ privacy at risk. MetaMask works as a gateway to decentralized apps (dapps) running on Ethereum’s blockchain. It’s a browser extension that seeks to simplify the use of cryptocurrency, which tends to intimidate unfamiliar users. It’s one of the most popular apps of its kind, boasting over a million installs on Chrome. The company built a new “privacy mode” last year, designed to keep users from unintentionally broadcasting their Ethereum addresses to sites they visit while MetaMask is in use; these signals are known as “message broadcasts.” Ethereum…[…]
