Cyberantropologen Amber Case vill se smartare människor i stället för smartare teknologi – med hjälp av calm tech.”Techvärldens Titanic händer just nu”, säger hon till Di Digital.Självkörande bilar, smartwatches och kylskåp som kan tala om för oss när bananerna blivit dåliga.Enligt en rapport från Pwc kommer konsumenter världen över att spendera 236 miljarder dollar på internet of things-lösningar år 2020.Det är en ökning med 33 procent från 2015.Syftet med calm technology är enligt henne att flytta fokus från kvantitet till kvalitet i skapandet av nya produkter och tjänster.

The US Department of Justice is investigating possible cryptocurrency price manipulation, at least according to sources that have leaked the probe.According to the tipsters, the DOJ has teamed with the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) to determine whether some traders have or had been manipulating the price of cryptocurrencies like bitcoin.The sources say this is a criminal probe.The investigation was leaked by sources talking to Bloomberg, which reports that both federal prosecutors and the CFTC are looking into whether some traders have been engaging in various illegal schemes to alter crypto prices.These methods include things like pushing out a flood of fake orders to manipulate other traders into either selling their cryptocurrencies or buying up existing currencies.Such manipulation tactics are illegal and come with stiff penalties.

Vid det här laget var det flera år sedan HTC utgjorde något reellt hot för de största mobiltillverkarna.Men det betyder inte att de är obetydliga på dagens mobilmarknad.Senast testade vi deras HTC U11, som trots en liten gimmick-artad kramfunktion som hette Edge Sense hade en riktigt bra kamera och fina specifikationer.Nu är HTC klara med en ny toppmodell som onekligen verkar ännu intressantare, inte minst tack vare kameran som redan anses vara en av de bästa på marknaden.Mobilen heter HTC U12+ och även om den inte har hunnit ut till butikerna ännu så glider den in direkt på en andraplats när det gäller mobilkameror, enligt DXOMARK.Med 103 poäng passerar den både Samsung Galaxy S9 + och Apples iPhone X.

Speaking in front of EU lawmakers today Facebook’s founder Mark Zuckerberg namechecked the GDPR’s core principles of “control, transparency and accountability” — claiming his company will deliver on all that, come Friday, when a new European Union data protection framework, GDPR, starts being applied, finally with penalties worth the enforcement.However there was little transparency or accountability on show during the session, given the upfront questions format which saw Zuckerberg cherry-picking a few comfy themes to riff on after silently absorbing an hour of MEPs’ highly specific questions with barely a facial twitch in response.But when it comes to Facebook’s own operations, the company maintains a highly filtered, extremely partial ‘newsfeed’ on its business empire — keeping a tight grip on the details of what data it collects and why.Only last month Zuckerberg sat in Congress avoiding giving straight answers to basic operational questions.The EU parliament’s political group leaders seemed well tuned to the myriad concerns now flocking around Facebook’s business.So if Facebook was hoping the mere appearance of its CEO sitting in a chair in Brussels, going through the motions of listening before reading from his usual talking points, that looks to be a major miscalculation.

As the European Parliament’s ‘Mr Privacy,’ Jan Philipp Albrecht, said: “It is a bad sign that Mark Zuckerberg only wants to answer the questions of selected Members of the European Parliament behind closed doors.” That’s an understatement!It’s also a pretty dreadful sign that the heads of the European Parliament’s biggest political groups were so happy to go along with this idea.Albrecht himself aside, there are few in the room that will be able to properly interrogate the Zuck on the complexities of the Facebook business model and how that systematically undermines democracy.Fortunately, following widespread public outcry, political pressure from the Socialists & Democrats, and the Greens in the Parliament, including a petition of more than 30,000 signatures started by Green MEP Sven Giegold, the discussion will be livestreamed here.The so-called Conference of Presidents is made up of the leaders of the political groups of the European Parliament led by Parliament President Antonio Tajani.Albrecht, and the chair of the Parliament’s civil liberties committee, (UK Labour MEP) Claude Moraes, are not part of this “select” group, but have been specially invited because of their expertise — which is sorely needed.

Hey Alexa, turn on the lights.Alexa, I said turn on my lights - not play a song called turn on the lights!And this is why one of the most unexpectedly useful gadgets I’ve used over the last couple of years is Flic, a tiny bluetooth button that hooks up to your phone, and lets you use a physical button to trigger custom actions that you pre-configure in the Flic app.For example, you can use the button to control your IoT lights - or play or pause your Spotify.Or as I described when I reviewed the buttons in January 2017, in my case I use the Flic button to toggle podcast playback from my phone when listening while playing video games.As soon as an important in-game cutscene begins, I can give the button a tap and immediately pause the pod.

Smartphones powered by Qualcomm technology will be able to deliver more secure Wi-Fi connections thanks to the rollout of the latest Wi-Fi Protected Access3 (WPA3) technology across the company’s mobile and networking infrastructure portfolio.WPA3 is more secure than the widely-used WPA2 standard thanks to the use of stronger cryptography and network protections that mean it can even be used with confidence in industries that handle sensitive information like health and finance.Specifically, it makes it harder for passwords to be guessed via a brute force attack, and also makes public Wi-Fi hotspots safer to use thanks to Opportunistic Wireless Encryption (OWE).Qualcomm hopes that WPA3 will make attacks such as the KRACK exploit, which targeted vulnerabilities in WPA2 and exposed unencrypted network traffic, less likely when it arrives with the Snapdragon 845 System on a Chip (SoC), first in the OnePlus 6.“At Qualcomm Technologies, we’re committed to working closely with industry bodies like the Wi-Fi Alliance to develop security standards to best protect data traffic across networks and devices, especially as security threats and attacks continue to become increasingly sophisticated,” said Rahul Patel, head of connectivity and networking at Qualcomm.“By adopting the latest in encryption technology to protect Wi-Fi connected products from security attacks, Qualcomm Technologies helps customers build products that not only deliver the industry’s latest technologies to the market, but adopt the most advanced security standard available.”

Princess Charlotte, Prince George and all the other bridesmaids and page boys at the royal wedding seemed to behave perfectly and sources have revealed this was all down to their nanny Maria Borrallo.Borrallo, who was appointed by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge in 2014 shortly after Prince George was born, was on hand to keep the children quiet and happy among the huge spectacle going on around them.According to The Telegraph, Borrallo’s winning technique included something very simple.Considering how well they all did, it seems to have worked a treat.So whether your children are involved in the ceremony, or just guests, it’s worth keeping a few other ideas in mind of how to keep them on their best behaviour.“While the happy couple are tying the knot, your stomach may be tied in knots at the thought of keeping your child quiet during the ceremony,” Cathy Ranson, editor of ChannelMum.com told HuffPost UK.

Det kan röra sig om så enkla saker som ett halvtaskigt gitarrljud, en otajt bas, en ostämd virvel, eller vad som helst egentligen.På senare tid har min filosofi dock allt mer lutat åt: Är det någonstans du inte ska slarva, så är det under själva inspelningen.Jag försöker själv spela in med detta i åtanke, att målet är att behöva pilla så lite som möjligt i efterhand, även om det såklart många gånger är lättare sagt än gjort.Med detta sagt är själva mixningen naturligtvis inte att underskatta, den kan – och ska – naturligtvis bidra till att beröra den som lyssnar.Men mixning handlar, enligt mig, i första hand om att lyfta fram och förstärka det som redan finns och är bra, snarare än att vara en en slags räddningsaktion.Vi sträcker oss direkt efter equalizers, kompressorer, rullbandspluggar eller vad det nu må vara, i hopp om att alla instrument tillslut ska smälta samman till en härlig helhet.

Atlantic Media-owned Quartz is beginning to sell AR ads within its chatbot news app, which has more than one million downloads.It's the latest example of how in-house advertising teams at publishers are experimenting with emerging technology to open new buckets of revenue.Quartz is betting that advertisers will get on board with augmented reality ads.In September, Quartz began testing an augmented reality feature in its mobile app that adds interactive graphics to some stories.For example, a story about NASA getting rid of its Cassini spacecraft included a 3D model of the spacecraft that users could play around with through their phone's camera.Now it's turning those AR graphics into ads for marketers, starting with Infiniti.

Twenty five years later, I’m still going.I can still walk a bit but I do need a wheelchair now, so I have a space in the wheelchair stands.What hasn’t changed is that I love the atmosphere and the feeling of being one big happy family.Spurs played at Wembley this season while Tottenham have a new stadium built, and Wembley’s design means you can mix with your friends however you want and also have a great view even when fans stand up in front of you.That is in part because the club made sure to speak with disabled people to understand what they want.It helps find problems that people without disabilities wouldn’t think of.

And yes, he was as funny as buyers needed him to be after a sluggish upfront week so far.While Kimmel was the most entertaining part of the presentation for buyers who attended the first ABC-Freeform upfront at Lincoln Center’s David Geffen Hall in New York, the network focused on a different ABC star for much of the event: Roseanne Barr.Barr won by singing Frank Sinatra’s “My Way” and joked, “I’m thrilled to share my vocal talents with America again,” referring to her controversial 1990 national anthem performance.“We deliver reach, we deliver engagement, and most importantly, we deliver results,” said Ferro, who also touted Luminate, the company’s suite of advanced advertising offerings that it rolled out last week.Nathan Fillion, returning to the network after Castle, introduced the trailer for his new drama, The Rookie, and told the younger buyers in the audience, “If you don’t know me, that’s all right.The fall’s new comedies include Single Parents and The Kids Are Alright.

Southeast Asia’s shared workspace market has certainly been warming up over the past year or so, with a clamor of new providers, big-money investments, and M activity.Singaporean co-working provider JustCo today announced a partnership with GIC, the city-state’s sovereign wealth fund, and local developer Frasers Property.While the three firms are framing the deal as a collaboration, a statement they published today suggests that at least part of the transaction involves a strategic investment in JustCo by the other two.“Our investment in JustCo will support it in its next phase of growth outside of Singapore,” said Lee Kok Sun, chief investment officer at GIC Real Estate.JustCo founder and CEO Kong Wan Sing said, “The confidence that GIC and Frasers Property have instilled in JustCo is a testament to our [technology and expertise], and we are extremely humbled to have found the right investors who share the same vision and purpose.This round of investment will help us enhance and redefine the flexible workspace experience through multi-geographical footprints.”

Exactuals, a software service offering payments management for the music industry, is debuting R.AI, a new tool that it’s dubbed the “Palantir for music”.It’s a service that can track songwriting information and rights across different platforms to ensure attribution for music distributors.As companies like Apple and Spotify demand better information from labels about the songs they’re pushing to streaming services, companies are scrambling to clean up their data and provide proper attribution.According to Exactuals, that’s where the r.ai service comes in.The company is tracking 59 million songs for their “Interested Party Identifiers” (IPIs), International Standard Work Codes (ISWCs), and International Standard Recording Codes (ISRCs) — all of which are vital to ensuring that songwriters and musicians are properly paid for their work every time a song is streamed, downloaded, covered, or viewed on a distribution platform.Chris McMurtry, the head of music product at Exactuals explained it like this.

“The world is becoming a computer,” Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella said at Build, honing its demos on artificial intelligence and cloud computing.Like Microsoft, Google demoed how voice can be given to AI systems, but Google’s I/O demos were more consumer-driven, which probably explains the results of the poll we took below.Android P, self-driving cars, and a smarter Assistant turned out to be more relatable than business drones and digital conference rooms for most people.(Please RT for a greater sample size.)— Digital Trends (@DigitalTrends) May 14, 2018One of the most memorable moments from either conference was Google’s Duplex demo, which simultaneously excited and terrified the entire internet.
