Twitter Lite är det kortfattade sociala nätverkets nya webbapp, som ska hjälpa användarna spara in på dyrbara megabyte på mobilabonnemanget.Appen väger till att börja med in på bara 1 megabyte och ska enligt företaget förbruka 40 procent mindre data än den vanliga Twitterappen, eller 70 procent om du aktiverar ett ”datasparläge”.Om du använder Android och Chrome kan du förvandla Twitter Lite till en så kallad progressiv webbapp (PWA), som kan läggas på hemskärmen och får sina inställningar i Androids Inställningar istället för i Chrome.Till skillnad från en renodlad webbapp kan du även använda den offline.Med den här satningen vänder sig Twitter framför allt mot användare i utvecklingsländer i Afrika, Asien och Latinamerika, där mobilt internet kan vara väldigt dyrt och varje megabyte har betydelse.

Much to the delight of Americans who love honesty and competence, Representative Devin Nunes will no longer lead the congressional investigation into Russia’s role in the 2016 presidential election.Donald Trump must be bummed, though.Politico reports that the California Republican will “temporarily step away” from the House Intelligence Committee probe.A few minutes after the Politico report, House Speaker Paul Ryan confirmed the news in a statement and alluded to an Ethics Committee review of Nunes’s behavior.Nunes issued his own snotty-sounding statement.Several leftwing activist groups have filed accusations against me with the Office of Congressional Ethics.

Facebook announced Wednesday that it is taking steps to curb the sharing of revenge porn, or intimate images that are shared without users’ permission.Head of global safety Antigone Davis said in a Newsroom post that a study by the Cyber Civil Rights Initiative found that 93 percent of victims of revenge porn reported “significant emotional distress” and 82 percent reported “significant impairment in social, occupational or other important areas of their life.”She detailed how Facebook’s new tools work:If you see an intimate image on Facebook that looks like it was shared without permission, you can report it by using the “Report” link that appears when you tap on the downward arrow or “…” next to a post.Specially trained representatives from our community operations team review the image and remove it if it violates our community standards.In most cases, we will also disable the account for sharing intimate images without permission.

För ett år sedan visade DARPA upp sin nya VTOL-farkost X-Plane.X-Plane utrustas med 24 stycken rotorer som ska göra farkosten stabilare än en helikopter och betydligt snabbare med en topphastighet på 300-400 knop.Nu har gänget gjort en testflygning med en miniversion av X-Plane och det verkar ha gått rätt bra.Miniatyrversionen väger endast 150 kilo och är utrustad med endast ett litiumjonbatteri.Den ordentliga versionen kommer vara 18,5 meter lång och väga 5,5 ton.Den riktiga versionen kommer testas någon gång nästa år.

Matt Ocko is a venture capitalist placing big bets on the latest in artificial intelligence and big data.But he also expects that leaps forward in related automation technology will put many people out of work, and he’s one of several Silicon Valley investors who think it’s unfair to expect society to adapt without offering help to people who are at risk from rapid change.“You can’t simply command a welder who just lost his...

Den här veckan har Breakit granskat startuplivets baksidor: ångesten, oron och det ekonomiska bortfall många startupgrundare har.En uppskattad och behövd granskning – men också kontroversiell.“Vilka borde vi egentligen skriva om, människor med miljarder på kontot eller ensamstående mammor?”, twittrade Ehsan Fadakar, chef för sociala medier-strategi på Schibsted.Enda skillnaden är att det förut hette “företagare” eller “entreprenör” i stället för “startup”.Som lever på föräldrars eller riskkapitalisters pengar, utan att själva kavla upp ärmarna och ta någon risk.Faktum är att många av de vi kallar “startups” idag egentligen inte ens är startups, om man syftar på snabbväxande techbolag.

Störst på streamad musik är fortfarande Spotify, men det finns faktiskt en punkt där Apple slår svenskarna på fingrarna – nämligen unika användare per månad.Analytikerfirman Verto har publicerat en rapport som visar att Apple hade 40,7 miljoner unika månadsanvändare i februari 2017.Då Verto endast mäter mobilt användande kan siffran vara betydligt högre.

Microsoftin dokumentinjakosivusto Docs.comissa on ollut hakutoiminnon kautta mahdollista selailla miljoonia tiedostoja, joista moni oli tarkoitettu yksityiseksi, kertoo ZDNet.Kaikkien nähtävillä on ollut muun muassa salasanalistoja, työhakemuksia, sijoitusportfolioita, avioeropapereita sekä muita dokumentteja, jotka ovat paljastaneet esimerkiksi ihmisten sosiaaliturvatunnuksia, puhelinnumeroita ja sähköpostiosoitteita.Microsoft poisti hakutoiminnon viikonloppuna, mutta osaan tiedostoista pääsee ZDNetin mukaan edelleen käsiksi Googlen sekä Microsoftin oman Bing-hakukoneen kautta.Kyseessä ei ole tietomurto vaan ilmeisesti silkka väärinymmärrys.Käyttäjät ovat ladanneet dokumenttejansa palveluun siinä uskossa, etteivät muut pääse niihin käsiksi.Docs.comin oletusasetuksien mukaan jaettavat tiedostot ovat kuitenkin julkisia.

Ofcom has begun consulting on the UK government's desire to compensate consumers and SMEs when telco companies fail, as set out in the Digital Economy Bill, even though the Bill hasn't reached the Royal Assent stage yet.Ofcom interprets the crowd-pleasing gesture as involving automatic compensation for delayed services, delayed repairs or missed appointments.It wants SMEs to be able to receive compensation too, as well as consumers.In response, BT, Sky and Virgin Media have put forward a voluntary alternative code of practice, which Ofcom doesn't think goes far enough.Unfulfilled installations would incur a compensation payment of £6 for each day and delayed repairs £10 a day, if the repair isn't made after two days.Missed appointments incur an automatic £30 compensation fee.

China provided good examples of monetizing content business and helping KOLs monetize their knowledge and experiences.Now we are seeing how Chinese companies’ ideas are influencing Silicon Valley companies.Chinese knowledge sharing startup Fenda told TechNode that they had influenced the initial idea of the Silicon Valley startup Whale.Of course, running a startup is about execution, and figuring out chicken and egg doesn’t matter in the fierce competition of startups.However, Fenda is a good example to show that China is building up its originality in startup ideas, execution, and spreading the words out.Fenda is a Chinese Q platform that allows users to ask any questions to a KOL (key opinion leader), by betting RMB 1 – 500 for their answers.According to VP of Fenda Yang Lu, the partner at Y Combinator Justin Kan was inspired by Fenda’s idea to develop Whale, an online Q community app.“When Justin Kan visited China, he interviewed us and later developed Whale,” Lu told TechNode.The difference is that Fenda’s users get to listen to influencer’s one-minute voice recorded answer while Whale’s users enter into a one-to-one video conversation with the influencer.To avoid frequent questions piled to the influencers, Whale’s videos are recorded and added to a library of existing content.Execution mattersThe critical part of this kind of business is how do you make words go viral.

Good, we’ll add your views to our “awesome or abhorrent” survey.Results so far: 100 percent to the former.Well, I can see how you might think it was a bit, well, cheesy.It’s definitely more Cesar Romero than Heath Ledger in the Joker stakes, for sure.Which is good, for a watch, despite where your Batman film loyalties lie.(We’re all about the Tim Burton/Jack Nicholson, in case you were wondering.)

Every day there’s a new robot with improved capabilities that promises to eventually take over yet another job.But if you’re heading off to college soon, and want to ensure you’ve selected a career path that’s safe from robo-replacement, this agonisingly awkward video seems to confirm that rapping is not something robots will be good at for a long time.To present their research—which focuses on teaching robots human-like social behaviours by having them mimic us—a group of researchers from Kyoto’s Advanced Telecommunications Research Institute created this “parody” of The Sugarhill Gang’s Rapper’s Delight.Whatever you’re imagining, it’s probably worse.Robot’s Delight probably isn’t going to become the massive hit that Rapper’s Delight was, and Erica the android isn’t quite as talented as Wonder Mike, but if you manage to make it through the entire video you’ll at least learn some stuff.Like how these robots were taught to study human to human interactions, and use what they observe to act and respond more naturally through body movements, and even spoken responses.
