The Oracle versus Google verdict set a positive precedent for the future of the API economy, but will it last?While on the surface Oracle versus Google might seem like a battle for profit between two tech giants, the implications are much more significant.Imposing copyrights on APIs would introduce legal friction and stunt innovation, favoring those with deep pockets over those with creative ideas.APIs have risen from the developer ranks to the boardroom, and we re just starting to see the impact they will have on business and the economy at large.Businesses are leveraging APIs to create application networks that are fundamentally changing the pace of business.Introducing legal friction by having API providers constantly worried about making that access look unique, and developer friction by forcing developers to weave together APIs that are different only for legal reasons, results in throwing a wet blanket over this creative engine.

When Facebook copied Twitter s trends in 2014, it vastly improved them by adding human-written descriptions right below so you knew if you cared or not.This is a win for users who don t browse Facebook in English and might get access to Trending Topics sooner.But it s a loss for those in English that could much more quickly scan the descriptions of Trends for whether they were worth a click.Without humans slowing down and driving up the price of the product, everyone will get to see Trending Topics that are even better tailored to your interests based on Pages you Like, your location, Trends you previously interacted with, and more.It will also be able to bring Trending Topics to more languages.Earlier this year it was accused by Gizmodo s anonymous sources of Facebook curators suppressing conservative Trends, though an investigation found no evidence to support that.

The hate for the Star Wars prequels is vociferous and seemingly unending, but a new documentary wants to go back to the movies and re-examine if they were ever worth the anger... And maybe get you to reconsider your opinion on them.The Prequels Strike Back seeks to re-examine the prequel trilogy after years of loud, wailing rage about how they destroyed childhoods across the world and how, for better or worse, they ve influenced Star Wars fandom in the modern era.The prequels are certainly flawed films, yes, but were they ever worthy of the intense vitriol lobbed at them?It s certainly a noble intent, given decades of anger these films some deserved, some undeserved have inspired across swathes of fans.Whether or not it will challenge anyone to reconsider their thoughts on the films remains to be seen, but still, this trailer looks like a set-up for a fascinating documentary.The Prequels Strike Back: A Fan s Journey will be available digitally from Amazon, Youtube, and VHX on September 14th.

Se sågklingan av papper som kapar en träbit.Att vanligt kopieringspapper är vasst vet de flesta av bitter erfarenhet.Att det även är så starkt att det kan användas som en såg verkar emellertid osannolikt.Men det fungerar visar snickaren John Heisz i en video.Där klipper han ut en sågklinga av vanligt kopieringspapper och monterar den i sin bänkmonterade cirkelsåg och sätter fart på pappersklingan.Efter några lyckade försök att såga papper och kartong placerar han en några millimeter tjock träbit på sågbordet och lyckas verkligen kapa den.

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is the latest release in the long-running franchise, and it s proven more interesting for PC gamers than we d expected.Though most gamers will probably buy the game for a console, it seems rather stable on PC – and it s gorgeous at maximum settings.The years that ve passed since its predecessor, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, have been kind to the franchise s unique artistic vision.But the eye-popping visuals aren t without their demands.According to our testing, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is the more demanding than any PC game we regularly use for testing – and that includes Crysis 3.Even a brand-new gaming laptop, with a cutting-edge GTX 1070 mobile GPU, was just short of reaching an average of 60 FPS in the game s benchmark.

Today Parrot heralded the release of Disco, the first fixed-wing drone which can also fly itself and brings the action right to pilots' eyes - literally.It's astounding just how far the technology's come in the past few months - and what's been added.One of the most striking features of the Disco is how you send it soaring; all you have to do is grab hold and toss it like a Frisbee, and it will automatically take off, ascending all on its own.Weighing only 1.6 pounds about 3 kilograms , it should be easy for anyone to lift.There's no need to be an experienced pilot with the Parrot Disco, and software and design features take the unsteadiness of quad-copters out of the equation.The Disco takes off and lands automatically, and an autopilot function helps control it in-flight.

Have you ever tried to do the laundry the way your clothing tag recommends, but when you finally try to read it, there s no way in hell you can understand the weird symbols that run across it?Vincenzo Lombardo via Getty ImagesJonathan Walford, the curatorial director at the Fashion History Museum, told HuffPost that the symbols started appearing on clothing labels in Europe in the late 1950s, but it didn t start catching on in North America until the 70s.Much like temperatures and metric measurements, there s a European system and an American system, but Walford said there isn t a huge difference between the two.The good news is, the whole system is pretty easy to understand once you know the basics.And abiding by the rules means your clothes will last much, much longer.

Motorised pan 350-degrees and tilt 155-degrees What is the Samsung SmartCam PT?Like its rivals, the camera is capable of monitoring your home and sending automatic alerts when it detects movement or audio, and all without a subscription.Dialling down the sensitivity reduced the number of alerts I got, but I'd still recommend pointing it away from a window.While being able to move the camera remotely is pretty cool, a fixed wide-angle lens would be better for security, as you d get more of a room in shot and your motion detection areas would be fixed.For example, the 170-degree lens on the Netgear Arlo Q gets way more in frame than the SmartCam PT, which has a 96-degree field of vision.

In a world where Apple and Microsoft are constantly circling their digital wagons around their respective business software, open source poses a real challenger to their resulting gated communities.Now one of the most popular pieces of open source business software, Open Office, is coming to iOS, in a release called Office 700.This port was handled by Akikazu Yoshikawa, the man behind the previous Android port of Open Office — so really an iOS version was the next logical step.He s spent around a year working on it off and on, detailing some of the processes on the official Office 700 blog.It s technically a port of Apache OpenOffice, and that presented some unique challenges, such as its lack of support for cross compiling, but he made it work in the end.It s a full release, too, with all of the main functions like text editing ODT , drawing ODG , presentation ODP and spreadsheets ODS .
