$38 million-funded Origin wants the next great two-sided marketplace to be decentralized on the blockchain so drivers and riders or hosts and guests can connect directly and avoid paying steep fees that can range up to 20 percent or higher.So today Origin launches its decentralized marketplace protocol on the Ethererum mainnet that replaces a central business that connects users and vendors with a smart contract.“Marketplaces don’t redistribute the profits they make to members.They accrue to founders and venture capitalists” Origin co-founder Matt Lie, who was the third product manager at YouTube.Users can create profile, connect their ethereum wallet through services like MetaMask, browse product and service listings, message each other to arrange transactions through smart contracts with no extra fees, leave reviews, and appeal disputes to Origin’s in-house arbitrators.These developers can opt to charge fees, though Origin hopes the cost-savings from its blockchain platform will let them undercut non-blockchain services.

Very powerful storms ringed the eye of Hurricane Sergio in infrared imagery from NASA's Aqua satellite.At 2:30 a.m. EDT (0630 UTC) on Oct. 3 the MODIS instrument that flies aboard NASA's Aqua satellite gathered infrared data on Sergio.Strongest thunderstorms wit coldest cloud tops appeared in the eyewall of the hurricane and extended outward from the center.MODIS found cloud top temperatures as cold as minus 80 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 62.2 Celsius).NASA research has shown that cloud tops with temperatures that cold were high in the troposphere and have the ability to generate heavy rain.The National Hurricane Center or NHC noted at 5 a.m. EDT (0900 UTC), the center of Hurricane Sergio was located near latitude 12.3 degrees north and longitude 116.7 degrees west.
On Tuesday morning, Tesla released its production and delivery results for Q3 2018.During those three months, the company built a total of 80,142 electric vehicles, of which 53,239 were the somewhat more affordable Model 3.That's a big increase over Q2 2018, when Tesla delivered 40,768 vehicles, and it's no doubt welcome news for a company that has been rocked by scandal of late.Tesla has recently navigated numerous resignations among senior staff and a now-settled lawsuit with the SEC over insider trading following CEO Elon Musk's Twitter-induced manipulation of the stock price.These latest results from Tesla are solely limited to vehicle production numbers, so we can't yet say if the company has kept its promise from Q2 2018 to be cashflow positive.In its favor is the fact that those Q3 Model 3s were "limited to higher-priced variants"—Musk has previously stated on Twitter that Tesla could not yet afford to build a $35,000 version and survive.

There's a big debate between current and former Facebookers over the way the company treats the founders of companies it acquires.But the founders of other Facebook acquisitions appeared to dunk on Acton, saying Facebook had always been supportive.Current and former Facebookers are piling into a debate about why Instagram and WhatsApp's founders quit, as the fight plays out over social media.The debate was triggered by Instagram founders Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger unexpectedly resigning from Facebook on Monday, six years after selling their company for $1 billion to the social network.It coincided with WhatsApp cofounder Brian Acton breaking his silence on Wednesday about why he left Facebook in 2017, three years after WhatsApp sold for $16 billion.In an explosive interview with Forbes, Acton said he and his cofounder, Jan Koum, had been unhappy that Facebook wanted to monetize WhatsApp by introducing ads.
That shift occurred because TV shows are shifting to online or on-demand viewing, and live broadcasts of the biggest sports are the main thing TV networks have left to draw in live audiences.OTT is where the growth isThe central narrative in the global film/TV industry right now is the response of incumbent companies to the growing dominance of Netflix, Amazon, and other streaming (aka “OTT” or over-the-top) services.The incumbents are merging to consolidate ownership of must-have shows onto a smaller number of new OTT services that will each be stronger.Meanwhile, social live-streaming platforms that got their start enabling people to either vlog or watch video gaming are expanding to all sorts of live broadcasting: Twitch averaged 1 million viewers at any given point of day in January, and there were 3.5 billion broadcasts over Facebook Live in the first two years after it launched (with 2 billion users viewing at least one).To launch your own OTT service or partner with an existing one, you don’t need to start with a massive audience from the beginning and you don’t need millions of dollars from sponsors just to break even.

If you’re an avid runner, would a pair of wireless earphones with voice coaching improve your runs, and even minimize injury?They cost $149, last around nine hours on a charge and since they’re IPX5 water-resistant, can withstand water sprays and human sweat.Detailed statistics on your run and running stanceThese are far from the best-looking (or best built) running earphones I’ve tested.That title would go to the Jabra Sport Coach, which had better ergonomics and styling than the Soul earphones.It’s a nice touch for added safety, but I was puzzled by Soul taking safety a step further and attaching a whole LED lantern (also containing the battery) to the left-hand side.
A new directive from US President Donald Trump eases the restrictions on using cyberweapons to protect the United States, National Security Adviser John Bolton said this week.Speaking at a news briefing Thursday, Bolton said the White House had "authorized offensive cyber operations" against adversaries, The Washington Post reported, saying Bolton didn't elaborate.The briefing was held to unveil Trump's directive, the 40-page National Cyber Strategy (PDF), which outlines how the US plans to handle cybersecurity and foreign adversaries.The US will "develop swift and transparent consequences" to "deter future bad behavior," says the document, which arrives amid concern about foreign interference in the November midterm elections.The US will also launch an international Cyber Deterrence Initiative to work with other like-minded countries on strategies to make sure bad actors and adversaries "understand the consequences of their malicious cyber behavior," the document says.Last December, Trump said cybersecurity was a national defense priority, and the White House called for stronger safeguards against hackers from criminal organizations and from countries like Russia, China and Iran.

Microsoft tackled the two biggest challenge for enterprises with Windows 10, password management and protecting the operating system from attackers.Windows Defender was renamed Windows Security in 2017 and now includes anti-malware and threat detection, firewall and network security, application and browser controls, device and account security, and device health.Credential Guard protects corporate identities by isolating them in a hardware-based virtual environment.Although there have been reports of malware code writers stealing certificates to sign malware, a significant majority of malware is unsigned code.Device Guard goes beyond the older AppLocker feature, which could be accessed by attackers with administrative privileges.Only an updated policy signed by a trusted signer can change the app control policy that has been set on the device.
Facial recognition technology presents myriad opportunities as well as risks, but it seems like the government tends to only consider the former when deploying it for law enforcement and clerical purposes.Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) has written the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Federal Trade Commission, and Equal Employment Opportunity Commission telling them they need to get with the program and face up to the very real biases and risks attending the controversial tech.Other lawmakers and authorities have sent letters to various companies and CEOs or held hearings, but representatives for Sen. Harris explained that there is also a need to advance the issue within the government as well.Attention paid to agencies like the FTC and EEOC that are “responsible for enforcing fairness” is “a signal to companies that the cop on the beat is paying attention, and an indirect signal that they need to be paying attention too.What we’re interested in is the fairness outcome rather than one particular company’s practices.”If this research and the possibility of poorly controlled AI systems aren’t considered in the creation of rules and laws, or in the applications and deployments of the technology, serious harm could ensue.
Joi Ito, director of the MIT Media LabNeha Narula, director of the Media Lab’s Digital Currency InitiativeDespite all the grifting, thieving, speculation, and wild price swings you’ve heard about, bitcoin and other decentralized digital currencies are clearly here to stay.Neha Narula, who studies them full time, and Joi Ito, who has been following digital money since the dawn of the web, talk about what that reinvention might look like.Narula: First of all, the way we fund productivity is going to change.Ito: Small and medium-size businesses are the largest part of our economy, and they’re supported by really, really stupid debt, because for most banks the costs of investing in small businesses outweigh the potential returns.
