The gradual and painful demise of traditional media has seen more and more talented journalists seek new opportunities.Among the options, starting a business of their own is becoming a favorable alternative.Obviously, journalists would make good entrepreneurs for their expertise in detecting and addressing the latest trends.Moreover, they surely enjoy abundant contact resources to draw back upon.But more importantly “[j]ournalists tend to possess the right mix of idealism, skepticism, and determination to bring useful ideas to life,” according to the former editor of the Chicago Tribune, Jason Goodrich.In that vein, TechNode presents 3 journalists-turned-tech entrepreneurs.Hu Weiwei — MobikeIn a little bit more than one year, dockless bike rental firm Mobike has brought amazing changes to China’s intercity transportations.Hu Weiwei, the 34-year-old founder of Mobike, once worked as a journalist at the Daily Economics Newspaper, mainly covering automobile news, which later helped her to form Mobike’s founding team.After leaving the company, she went to The Beijing News and Business Value to report about technology news.In December 2015, she formed a team from her automobile industry networks and established Mobike in 2016.

Hey Reddit, I've noticed recently that LinkedIn has started cropping personal images awkwardly.Some say it's a bug they were trying to fix but there's no sign it's being dealt with (it's been well over a week now).This makes me think it's just a permanent update.Does anyone know the ideal image dimensions for a personal post so LinkedIn stops cropping it?Or does anyone know what's happening with this at all?I've got a client of mine on my tail about this and it's annoying AF.

Technically Incorrect offers a slightly twisted take on the tech that's taken over our lives.The minute some disaster happens -- or some frightful political decision with which they disagree -- they change their Facebook profile picture to some sort of symbol.Then they sit back and bathe in their own socially aware smugness.Yes, such people are often of the liberal persuasion.Which might surprise one or two people that these slacktivists were skewered by the often left-leaning types at "Saturday Night Live."As the anthem "Thank You, Scott," plays, we see Louis C.K.

PC gamers with $9,000 to spare now have a new option for playing their favorites on a high-end mobile solution sporting a 21-inch curved WFHD display.For those who haven’t heard about Acer’s Predator 21 X gaming laptop with a curved screen, you are about to do a double-take.After first appearing at CES 2017 in January, the company said the high-end unit would hit the market sometime in the first quarter.However, that did not happen but instead, it officially launched on Wednesday in Taiwan as the global rollout starting point.Yep, you read that correctly.In Acer’s defense, the laptop is loaded with meaty components that probably have no problems sustaining a high framerate at 2,560 x 1080 on and off the 6,000 mAh battery.

Paprika ($4.99) is our favorite recipe manager on both Android and iPhone, but its massive feature set makes it a bit overwhelming at first.Paprika is smart enough to parse out the seemingly endless personal essay at the start of a recipe and convert the ingredients and directions automatically.If you haven’t already, you first need to create a free Paprika cloud sync account.Then, head to the bookmarklet page, enter your email address and password, then follow the onscreen instructions to set it up.That’s what works best for me, so your mileage will vary, but don’t be afraid to think a little outside the box when you create categories.Search, Search, Search to Skip Organizing

The latest update to Pebble’s app will decouple Pebble smartwatches from the company’s cloud servers so that basic features remain accessible though how other cloud-dependent features will work remains to be seen.Fitbit acquired Pebble last year but promised continued support for existing Pebble devices throughout 2017.The company also added that there will be a future update to loosen Pebble’s mobile apps’ dependency on cloud servers so that existing smartwatches can continue to function when the servers are eventually shut down.And indeed, that time has come.The latest software update – version 4.4 – will let “Pebble devices keep working, even if online servers are not accessible for any reason,” meaning users will still be able to side-load apps and install firmware as well as language packs.Though it looks like basic features will continue to work as they did before the acquisition, the question remains, “What about other more advanced features that depend on cloud servers?”

När Breakit 2015 kartlade den svenska floran av jaktappar fanns en rad aktörer som trodde stenhårt på marknadspotentialen: The Great Wild, Wehunt, Easyhunt, Huntway och Vilth.En av spelarna, The Great Wild, tvingades dock i höstas att gå in i en rekonstruktion för att rädda bolaget undan konkurs.Katrineholmsbaserade Wehunt tycks ha vind i seglen.I fjol ökade användarbasen med 50 procent, enligt bolaget som uppger att man har ”Sveriges största jaktapp".I nästa steg väntar resten av Norden och andra länder i Europa.”Vi tror att vi kan nå 100.000 användare i Sverige.

Apple takes environmental sustainability seriously, but producing electronic devices that don’t cause harm to the earth or the people who make those devices requires the efforts of Apple’s suppliers, too.That’s why the company enforces standards for its partners, and according to Apple’s 11th annual supplier sustainability progress report, 2016 saw dramatic improvements.Apple audited 705 suppliers and found 98 percent compliance with a 60-hour maximum work week, a new high.Apple removes partners from its supply chain who don’t meet its standards for labor and human rights, and in 2016 the company ceased working with three suppliers, BuzzFeed reported.Apple also cut out 22 suppliers who were found to smelt conflict minerals.Smartphones use many minerals, including gold, tungsten, tantalum, and tin, that can be sourced from conflict zones where the mining and sale of those minerals contributes to human rights abuses.

For some reason I ended up with redditmarketing.com.It came along with a batch of other domains that I actually wanted.I have no use for this domain, so for now I figured why not redirect it.Visiting http://redditmarketing.com will just redirect to /r/marketing.If anyone feels they have a good use for this domain, or that I should just let it expire tell me.

I grew up in a council-house in the UK and my mother worked very hard to provide for her 4 children, whilst supporting my step-father through university.(I know I just started a sentence with ‘But’, however that’s how people naturally speak… forgive me) It means that 6% of the UK workforce is paid less money than it costs to live, and that’s expected to double by 2020 to over 10%More than 1/3rd of the population of the United States is on some kind of means-tested welfare.We’re fighting a losing battle.This is what I’ll be teaching you today.Sometimes your only way to progress is to leapfrog to a different lilypad, flowing faster downstream.

Apple’s AirPods are probably the first really mainstream completely wireless headphones, but Erato has been making these for a while now.The company’s latest is the Muse 5, a set of in-ear buds that are cheaper than their debut Apollo 7 option, but still come with a charging case and very respectable battery life.The Muse 5’s least impress feature might be their design – it’s a bit like you’re putting bulky buds you found at the local gas station in your ears, with the plastic construction and contrasting color plastic ring on each unit.But they are completely wireless, and effectively so, which is not something you’ll get at the gas station, obviously.Plus, their design is ergonomic – the two-part ear canal soft silicon tips ensure a snug fit, at least in my experience, without requiring the use of tricks like memory foam to ensure a seal.The overall look and feel of the Muse 5 contrasts considerably with Erato’s Apollo 7, the wireless buds it released last year.
