Instagram may arrived late as a traffic source for brands and publishers, but it s already showing early signs of success, driving new visitors to their sites and even outperforming its parent company, Facebook.They scrawled short-code URLs onto their pictures.Then last month Instagram finally introduced an official alternative to these hacky workarounds: the ability for verified profiles to insert links in their Instagram Stories.Each day the brand gets around 350 clicks to its site from the link in its Instagram bio; from the links in its Instagram Stories it s getting 400 to 600 clicks, according to MeUndies head of brand marketing, Steph Young.Even before the feature was announced, Curbed had already seen a willingness from its Story viewers to go beyond the ephemeral content format.Every Thursday Curbed produces a Story that teases the new episode of The Curbed Appeal podcast being released that day.

The Fifth Element is a problem - the input argument that didn't get checked is an RCE holeThe developers of open source webmail package Roundcube want sysadmins to push in a patch, because a bug in versions prior to 1.2.3 let an attacker crash it remotely – by sending what looks like valid e-mail data.The authors overlooked sanitising the fifth argument the from parameter in mail – and that meant someone only needed to compose an e-mail with malicious info in that argument to attack Roundcube.It works because of how the program flows in a default installation.User input from the Roundcube UI is passed to PHP's mail function, and mail calls sendmail.Because the user input wasn't sanitised until the bug-fix, the fifth argument when calling mail could be used to execute sendmail with the -X option to log all mail traffic – and that, according to RIPS Technologies in this blog post, could be abused to spawn a malicious PHP file in the target server's Webroot directory.

Previous nominees include Martin Creed's Work No 227 won - it was a lightbulb switching on and off.Tracey Emin was famously nominated for an unmade bed.I think it represents despair.According to the press release, "using sculpture, screen printing and writing Marten produces works that are full of models and motifs from contemporary visual culture.Her intricate and intriguing sculptures bring together a range of handmade and found objects as varied as cotton buds to fish skins, to create poetic visual puzzles."Next up there's an altogether more wholesome experience, as Josephine Pryde has been nominated for this week - which includes a train.

I Sverige en genomsnittlig person cirka 74 kilo mat per år, enlig siffror från Naturvårdsverket Att minska matsvinnet är något som flera startupbolag tittar på – exempelvis finska Resq Club som vill ta vara på överskottsmaten slängs restauranger och fik dagligen.Malmöbaserade bolaget Innoscentia har valt ett annat tillvägagångssätt för att angripa problemet.Deras innovation bygger på en kombination av ett sensoriskt bläck som binder bakteriemetaboliter, en restprodukt från bakteriernas metabolism, och tryckt elektronik som kan integreras exempelvis i en digital etikett som kan kommunicera den elektroniska reaktionen som uppstår.Målet för Innoscentia är att skapa en bättre och mer tillförlitligt metod för konsumenter att kunna avgöra om maten fortare är ätbara eller inte än den bäst-före-märkning som används nu.– Vårt mål är att lösa problemet med dagens datummärkning på livsmedel, som egentligen inte kan säga om maten fortfarande är säker eller inte att äta, säger Erik Lindberg, på Innoscentia.Bolaget var på plats i Slush i Helsingfors för att nätverka och träffa kollegor från startupvärlden, också för att Erik Lindberg deltog i ett panelsamtal om matinnovation och framtidens matindustri med bland annat en representant från finska Entocube, som utvecklar en slags automatiserad farm för ätbara insekter.

MechWarrior Online's Piranha Games is taking aim at the single-player market with the announcement of MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries.The BattleTech universe is set to get its first single-player game in a decade and a half, somewhat unoriginally titled MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries, courtesy of MechWarrior Online's Piranha Games.The news that 2002's MechWarrior 4: Mercenaries was to get an unexpected follow-up from Piranha Games was broken back in 2009, though the expected MechWarrior 5 actually launched as MechWarrior Online.Given its name, those unfamiliar with the title will be unsurprised to hear that the game was a multiplayer affair with a microtransaction framework many proclaimed as being little short of a pay-to-win system giving those willing to pony up the cash an unfair advantage over those trying to progress through the ranks organically.Despite complaints surrounding MechWarrior Online's microtransactions and stalled development by its creators, Piranha Games is back with the game everyone in 2009 expected: MechWarrior 5.Borrowing the same Mercenaries subtitle as 2002's MechWarrior 4, the game is expected to offer the same formula that made its predecessor a cult classic: the ability to roam the land in a giant mech, laying waste to enemies and buildings alike, earning credits to spend on new and bigger mechs and systems for customisation.

At the center of the weather forecast and information world is AccuWeather, a 55-year-old brand that prioritizes its accuracy as its key brand proposition.It has thousands of partnerships supplying its information to television stations, publishers like the New York Times, and car manufacturers like Ford.That dominance is because of our superior accuracy and our patented technology, said AccuWeather.Upstart apps like Poncho which features a Millennial-friendly gifs and offers customized reports and Dark Sky which is praised for its design and notification alerts are relatively new entrants to the marketplace, all backed by VCs.While the company benefits from brand recognition it received on behalf of all of its partnerships, but it also does do a lot of proactive content marketing and paid advertising.The company creates and distributes a host of weather- and disaster preparedness videos and articles.

Enlarge / The kinds of colors on display here in Final Fantasy XV really pop on an HDR-compatible console and screen.In our recent coverage of the PS4 Pro and Xbox One S, we've noted how the use of a high-dynamic range HDR color gamut has a striking effect on the apparent visual quality of a game or a compatible video .Unfortunately, those expanded color benefits are only available on a select few titles for each console so far.In a small bout of service journalism, we've compiled lists of titles that are compatible with HDR screens right now and will have support added in the near future.Reliable information on this is surprisingly hard to come by, though a list tweeted last night by Microsoft's Aaron Greenberg was a big help on the Xbox-side he left off support for the upcoming Scalebound, however .For the PS4, things are a bit more complicated, especially since many games that have been upgraded with higher resolutions or smoother frame rates on the PS4 Pro have pointedly not been improved with HDR color thus far.

Alt-right has become a household term in recent months as the movement threw its support behind Donald Trump.But activists have warned that the phrase alt-right is simply a sanitized rebranding of white nationalism and conflating the two has dangerous implications.That s why a New-York based advertising professional, who is using the pseudonym George Zola, created a Google Chrome extension called Stop Normalizing The Alt Right, which automatically replaces all mentions of the alt-right with the phrase white supremacy. Stop Normalizing The Alt Right became available on Google Chrome on Nov. 17th and has since been well-received online.So far, it has already amassed more than 59,000 direct Facebook shares and 1,700 downloads.I don t want this term to be sugar coated, I want it to instantly make people recoil in the same way most recoil when thinking of white supremacists or white nationalists groups, Zola told HuffPost.

Einstein was wrong, reignited theory suggestsEinstein was incorrect about the speed of light being a fixed constant in our universe, a new theory suggests.The constancy of the speed of light is a powerful assumption in many fundamental areas of physics, including cosmology, quantum mechanics, and electromagnetism.This month, a paper published in Physical Review D Arxiv challenges this view.Professor João Magueijo and Professor Niayesh Afshordi, who are both theoretical physicists at Imperial College in the UK and the Perimeter Institute of Theoretical Physics in Canada respectively, claim that the speed of light could have been faster during the early universe.Magueijo and Afshordi have figured a way to test their theory by looking at the universe s tiny density fluctuations observable on a map of the cosmic microwave background CMB .

Google is attempting to advise shoppers where might be best to avoid if you don't want to get flattened by an obese 15-year-old running faster than he's ever run before with a PS4 Pro beneath one flabby arm and a Wi-Fi range extender under the other, as it's testing a system that tries to warn people when their intended shopping destinations are packed to bursting.It's an expansion of the "popular times" feature that's been inside its Maps tool for a year or so, only upgraded to offer a live look at how many shoppers might be in a place.It generates a graph beneath some places' Google home pages, although the option to tell Google if this is correct or not hints at the fact that it might just be... guessing.Google hasn't said how it generates the data, which is a bit of a problem.If it's by tracking us well then that's great, sort of, but the graphs are a bit vague and if you've committed to going to ASDA to try to wrestle a last-gen HDTV off an old lady or take the last Planet Earth Blu-ray from a child, you're hardly likely to abandon your plans on the say so of a graph.Still, Google has to at least try to get some traffic out of Black Friday, right?

If you've ever been licked by a cat, you'll know the rough feeling of the feline's tongue.It was long thought this helped the animal groom itself, but researchers have now discovered exactly how this mechanism works – by 3D printing a tongue made of plastic.In particular, these hooks grab and pull, almost like Velcro, making them perfectly suited to grooming a cat s coat.In addition to confirming a long-standing theory, the findings could be used in soft robotics as researchers are struggling to find ways for soft materials to grip surfaces.The study was carried out by doctoral candidate in mechanical engineering at Georgia Tech, Alexis Noel."When the cat's tongue hits a snag, it pulls on the hooks, which rotate to penetrate the snag even further,"Noel said.

It looks like Apple s dream of one day creating a foldable phone isn t dead just yet.The company has been granted a new patent for an iPhone that would be able to fold in half, and even grip onto your clothes — meaning you might not even need to put it in your pocket.The patent itself was applied for in July 2014, and it envisions the use of a flexible OLED display that could itself fold in half, making the device look somewhat like the clamshell-type phones of yesteryear.More: Samsung may follow Apple s lead and release a glossy black Galaxy S7The patent goes into detail about how the device would work, butkeep in mind that just because Apple has been granted a patent, that doesn t mean it will ever release the tech to the market.According to the patent, the device could be folded so that the two screen halves touch each other, or so that there s half of the screen on either side of the outside of the device.

Reuters - The on-demand economy, which uses smartphone technology to immediately fill consumer needs, has changed the way people order food, a car, or a place to stay.Now, technology startups are targeting the next business frontier - insurance - offering coverage with the swipe of an app.Trov, a San Francisco Bay Area firm that provides smartphone-based on-demand insurance for individual assets, like computers or cameras, for any duration, launched in the United Kingdom on Tuesday, backed by insurance firm AXA SA ."We literally track risk to the second so when you turn something on, it turns it on to the second and then it prices your usage to the second should you want to turn it off," Scott Walchek, Trov's chief executive officer, said in an interview last week."It's literally the same swipe right to turn it on, swipe left to turn it off."The multitrillion-dollar dollar insurance industry is poised to be transformed "beyond recognition" by new technologies like artificial intelligence, new payment systems, drones and blockchain, CommerzVentures GmbH said in a white paper in March.
