Saksa on määrännyt vanhemmat tuhoamaan lasten My Friend Cayla -nimiset nuket.Tuhoaminen pitää osoittaa jätehuoltoyrityksten todistuksella.Saksassa on lain suomat mahdollisuudet sakottaa järeästi tietoturva-asioihin leväperäisesti suhtautuvia tahoja.Äärimmäisen turvattomaksi todetut älynuket on nyt määrätty maassa hävitettäväksi.Tietoturvakatastrofiksi osoittautunut My Friend Cayla -nukke osaa jutella lasten kanssa, ja hakea kysyttäessä tietoa internetistä.Se siis toimii hieman samaan tapaan kuin Amazon Echo tai Google Home.

Just like any movie or TV show script, not everything planned gets into production and the final episode or film.Same is especially true with devices, with features that get left on the cutting board.To JerryRigEverything’s surprise, one such feature made it to the retail Galaxy S8.That feature is a “movable” front camera that hints that selfies would have become less blurry on Samsung’s flagship.That is, if it actually pushed through with it.Image stabilization is very problematic for smartphones becomes of the terribly constrained spaces camera sensors have to operate in.

People are asking over and over again, what’s the key difference between B2B marketing and Consumer marketing?Behind every business, there’s always an individual.Someone with a problem that needs a solution.This means that any marketer with a goal to bring in more leads, shouldn’t be targeting random companies.Instead, they should be targeting individuals with tasks to solve these problems.But it might not be that easy!

We’ve written about a few different dashboard camera models before here on BGR, and we often discuss how much money these affordable little gadgets can save you.It’s easy to shrug it off and ignore their potential, but earlier this week we got an email from a reader who thanked us profusely and said that our advice really did save her a ton of cash.About a month later, she was side swiped on the highway and the driver of the other car was at fault.He apologized profusely and admitted blame… until the police arrived, and then he sang a different tune and claimed she was at fault.The reader finally told him and the police that she captured the whole thing on camera and started marching toward her car.She didn’t even make it all the way there before the other driver began apologizing and admitted guilt.

With ice and a slice.If you’re aware of the brain’s bio-chemical brilliance, you’ll know that dopamine is the ‘reward’ hormone.A kind of chemical ‘well done you fabulous human’ boost; triggered by our ever ready ‘let’s do it, because we’re worth it’, limbic system, located deep within our brain’s centre.These questions from psychologist, Susan Weinschenk will probably prompt a ‘yes’, except from the most disciplined amongst us: ‘Do you find it impossible to ignore your email if you see that there are messages in your inbox?It’s this prefrontal cortex control panel that helps us to say ‘no’ and switch off that light show.But what concerns me, and a growing number of other regulators and campaigners, is the impact of the online world on younger, more maleable brain chemistries.

Apple is facing an enquiry in China following allegations that some third-party apps available on its App Store may have broadcast censored content, including pornography, forbidden by Chinese law.Internet regulators in Beijing are set to question the iPhone maker after authorities ordered three Chinese live streaming websites to rectify management loopholes and content.Toutiao.com, huoshanzhibo.com and huajiao.com have been found guilty of violating four different regulations concerning internet related information services, live-streaming services and online performance, according to the Beijing Cyberspace Administration.Xinhua reports that law enforcement officers have already met representatives from Apple with regards to examining live stream apps available on its store.The US tech giant is likely to be handed a summons to tighten up checks on apps available on its App Store.While Apple may have no direct link with any of them, all apps accepted on the App store come under the company's management.

the Dmv needs a better basis to carry out the road maintenance cost, according to a review made by the national audit office.”It is above all about the shortcomings in the information on how extensive and what kind of, injuries of the different each of them have.This applies both to the wear and tear on the asphalt and the state under the road surface,” writes the national audit office in a press release.There are, according to the review also problems with the Swedish transport administration's funding, which is said in among prevent the authority from carrying out maintenance work at the right time and as cheaply as possible.

Facebook CEO had just started speaking about the concept of the social graph.To leverage this asset, Facebook thought it most likely needed to work with partners and developers to build quickly and creatively enough.Facebook’s developer ecosystem has also become increasingly global.More than 80% of developers using the platform are based outside of the U.S., and now internet connectivity and affordability affect how Facebook builds tools.“The recognition that Mark [Zuckerberg] and the rest of the team had and has always had since is that any of the opportunities that we are going after as a company that are going to be of consequence, we have to do with a community of people -- with partners, with developers.”“Everyone who can build on us is amplifying the impact we thought we could have,” he added.

I ran into issues with Bluetooth connectivity dropping on occasion, even though my iPhone was only five feet from the speaker.It wasn’t consistent, but every now and then there would be a burst of static, song playback dropping out, or delayed response to control inputs.Claimed battery life is four hours.Real life results varied from three hours to over four, depending on playback volume.Considered purely as a $59.95 Bluetooth speaker, the Jam Voice is a little underwhelming.However, it has a showcase feature that could tip the equation.

With portable and powerful laptops priced below the psychological barrier of $1,000 now somewhat of a commodity, the premium segment is one where a device has to live up to its price tag.On the spec sheet, the gram 13 is more similar to Dell’s offering than Apple’s MacBook, having far fewer ports and a different class of processor (Intel Core i5 for LG vs. Intel Core m5 for Apple).That said, we find that the LG gram 13 struggles to live up to that four-digit price point, especially when stacked against comparably-priced Ultrabooks.The good news is that LG uses third-party sites, such as Amazon or B Photo to fulfill orders of the gram 13.Just above the keyboard, lodged into the laptop hinge, is a 1.3-megapixel webcam, relocated from the more traditional location of above the display.Setup and use of the gram 13’s fingerprint sensor is similar to that of any modern smartphone with a similar feature – in fact, it closely resembles the process LG uses on its flagship smartphones.

When the others filmimperiet of all filmimperier, the Disney Group, trafficked up to 35 billion to the bearded ”adult-child” George Lucas in 2012, promised two things: they would not ”Disney-ifiera” Star Wars and they would make a plethora of movies, including spin-off series on the current tape.If Disneykoncernen have made Star Wars more or less live their own, independent life under the Mickey Mouse umbrella, they have taken on the legacy and the mood after Lucas.When George Lucas redefined the science fiction genre in 1977 and created one of the highest-grossing film series, he created at the same time, a multi-faceted universe with a host of characters and potential parallellhistorier.Lucas is no longer involved in Star Wars, but his spirit looms over the new films also.No, it is true that we do not meet the known and dear characters from the ”real” Star Wars series, but the Rogue is very much a film that comes from nowhere and stand on their own legs.the Gang is constantly on the escape the empire troops and take us to many different places in a galaxy far, far away.

I like to think of growth hackers akin to planners and builders of the nation’s railways.The planner’s goal was to connect large areas of population and effectively cross barriers between them.The railroad was ultimately responsible for the settlement of the West — at the expense of our bison population, no less.

Finally having the opportunity to get into social media marketing for my company and I've been thinking if social media is this dopamine-highjacking phenomenon like many drugs, doesn't it make sense to drastically reduce the amount of social media you consume so you can think more clearly about what your users want and not have your own behaviors/compulsions muddying the waters.
