The Chromebook may not be the most affordable choice for students when Microsoft launches its Cloudbook platform.Microsoft’s idea of a cloud-connected, education-focused laptop should offer pretty decent performance that’s at least comparable to the Chromebook competition.Although Microsoft hasn’t unveiled much about the devices yet, a document said to detail the minimum specifications for third-party “Cloudbook” manufacturers gives us an idea of what we can expect when they eventually become available.Although there are many low-cost Windows 10 laptops out there, Microsoft is expected to unveil a stripped-back version of Windows in May, known as Windows Cloud, that will be for use on ultra-low-cost notebooks of its own.However, it seems likely that it will look to third parties to join it in promoting the cheap, cloud-connected platform, possibly with a focus on students.The so-called Cloudbooks will need to have at least a quad-core CPU, we’re told (Cerelon or better) and come with at least 4GB of RAM.

The human nose can detect more than one trillion distinct scents, but it’s not so great at picking up your own odors.There’s always a chance you reek something foul and just don’t realize it.If that’s a fear of yours, here’s how you can find out for sure.If you just lower your nose and take a big whiff of the air surrounding your body, you’re probably not going to pick up on your body odor.You’ll assume everything’s fine and go about your day smelling like something was living in your shirt, had a family, died, was eaten by its young, and then they all died too.Remove Your Clothes and Smell Them

After running a pilot program with over 8,000 businesses, Uber is officially launching Uber Central, a dashboard that will let companies request, manage, and pay for multiple Uber rides for others.The service expands upon the existing Uber for Business platform which already allowed employees to hail rides themselves and have their company pay the bill.With Uber Central companies can extend those free rides beyond employees and have an administrator coordinate multiple rides at any given time.UberCentral can be accessed via a standard web browser or through the Uber app on an iOS or Android tablet.From there it’s possible to request a ride and share location and client information with drivers.The passenger doesn’t need to have an account with Uber or have the app installed on his or her phone -- they’ll simply receive an SMS with their driver's information as well as a link to a map with live tracking.

Our set of rules describing particle physics may be under threat, according to results published by CERN.Now, data from the Large Hadron Collider is testing its boundaries.For years, physicists have been trying to find ways to break the rules and find new theories and the latest experiments from LHC beauty, or LHCb, identified hints that extend beyond this Standard Model.The results could lead to the discovery of new particles or even new forces, that could one day help explain the Universe's mysteries, like dark matter.The latest data originated from studying the decay of one particle, called a B meson, which is made up of a bottom quark and an up quark.The Standard Model predicts many of the ways this meson can decay.

Years ago, amid the mad scramble for domain names, Capezio decided it might be a good idea to buy Dance.com.A mere three months after a mid-January relaunch, it’s already the go-to web platform for all things dance—and that really does mean everything.For people who like to move their bodies to music (or like to watch others doing it), the site is an informative and often entertaining destination, a video-heavy platform with everything from ballet features to hip-hop news to amateur videos of dancing high school kids.A team of professional journalists writes and edits Dance.com’s articles and videos, and the Capezio brand name appears only in the fine print at the bottom of the homepage.If you can make it fun, engaging and real, you’ll have a better chance of being successful than just making up stories around stories.”Dance.com is also experimenting with a curatorial approach that’s new to this corner of the performing arts—treating all forms of dance with the same measure of respect and gathering news about it all in one place.

The U.S. government is charging that Google is systematically paying women less than their male counterparts.Testifying in a San Francisco court Friday, Department of Labor (DOL) regional director Janette Wipper said the government “found systemic compensation disparities against women pretty much across the entire workforce,” according to a report in The Guardian.The charges come as part of a lawsuit the DOL filed against Google in January, seeking access to the company’s compensation data and related personnel records.As a federal contractor, Google is required to permit the government to inspect records relevant to its compliance with equal opportunity laws.The DOL alleges that Google refused to provide the required information, while the company says it turned over “hundreds of thousands” of records and that the government’s requests are “overbroad in scope, or reveal confidential data,” according to TechCrunch.In opening remarks, Lisa Barnett Sween, a Google attorney, called the DOL request a “fishing expedition that has absolutely no relevance to the compliance review.”A Google spokesperson provided Fortune with the following statement:“We vehemently disagree with Ms. Whipper’s claim.Every year, we do a comprehensive and robust analysis of pay across genders and we have found no gender pay gap.Other than making an unfounded statement which we heard for the first time in court, the DoL hasn’t provided any data, or shared its methodology.”The accusations come after Google’s Tuesday announcement on Equal Pay Day that it has “closed the gender pay gap globally.”The company also said that it’s “sharing some of the lessons we’ve learned to help other businesses close the gap.”As noted by The Guardian, this isn’t the first time the government has sued a large tech company over employment and pay issues.In January, the DOL sued Oracle over alleged pay discrimination against female and minority employees.This story originally appeared on Fortune.com.

The Omidyar Network’s latest, $100 million worth of new funding to journalism outlets and to organizations combating hate speech and the spread of false information is both a product of our current times and the continuation of a decade-long effort on the part of the philanthropic network created by eBay founder Pierre Omidyar.The new funding will add to the $220 million the network has given under its Governance & Citizen Engagement initiative, which includes news organizations like past funding recipient TWI: The World Investigates.This is not to be confused with the almost $12 million worth of grants to news organizations announced last week by The Democracy Fund, the foundation started by Omidyar, and First Look Media, the media organization started by Omidyar.And as much as both these efforts represent, in part, the organizations’ trust in particular journalistic institutions, the Omidyar Network’s latest commitment is also a larger trust-building exercise, an effort to “rebuild trust in institutions, government and media, and ensure that society continues to operate on the principles of openness, inclusivity and accountability,” according to Stephen King, a partner at the Omidyar Network who leads the Governance & Citizen Engagement initiative.It is why one of the first organizations listed as a recipient of the new three-year funding effort is the Panama Papers-exposing International Consortium of Investigative Journalists, which is receiving $4.5 million and will use the money to add more reporters and data engineers to its staff.“ICIJ is leading the charge for a new era of collaborative, cross-border investigative journalism that shines a light on the malfeasance and corruption that erodes trust,” making it a “a natural fit with the work we have done over the last decade,” King tells Fishbowl.
