A new company named Sigma, founded by alumni of mobile app search engine Quixey, aims to take records and certifications currently trapped in the analog world and bring them online.To do so, the company has raised $4.35 million in seed funding from Andreessen Horowitz and other investors.In essence, everyone was relying on information provided from others, and that info wasn t easy to verify.The question that nagged Kagan and his friends was why, at this day and age, their certifications weren t available online.Why were they tied to an analog system of paper ledgers and plastic identification cards?They raised a little bit of money from friends and family and launched a limited alpha in August 2016.

In the first run with a series of inredningsvänliga wireless speakers, and more recently, with wireless portable products.We recently tested the Bluetooth speaker Libratone One and shortly thereafter expanded the range with two hörlursmodeller, both with active noise cancellation.It is an expensive pleasure, but when leaning back in the flygsätet and with a push of a button filters out the sound of roaring jet engines and make ready for the eight hours of silence across the Atlantic, so feel the price is suddenly reasonable.You may add about twice as much to get the active noise cancellation from other livsstilsmärken like Bose and Bunto the money to get a highly simple and stylish headset that visually do not learn to be a deterrent of any.There is also a minijack-plug for analog audio if the battery would run out.It may have the positive side effect that it is easier to hear what the flight attendant says when you have on earphones, because the voice does not drown in the sound of the engine.

Nanoxia has announced a new series of fans, making use of a vibration-damping technology developed for the German car industry and which the company claims it has the sole rights to implement in PC hardware.The Nanoxia Special NNV Series represents, the company gently puns, 'a real revolution for the fan market.'The secret sauce: a technology originally developed for the automotive industry and for which Nanoxia has licensed the patent giving it exclusive rights to implement within the confines of the PC market, greatly reducing the transmission of vibration from the fan to the case.The technology inside the Special NNV fan family takes the form of two frames.The outer frame forms the mounting system, attaching to a case, CPU, or radiator in the usual manner; the inner frame, however, holds the fan rotor and motor, and is decoupled from the mounting frame through four rubber dampers.The result: vibration from the motor is massively reduced before it gets a chance to reach the case, Nanoxia claims.
Facebook Data Centre in Odense, Denmark will run on entirely on renewablesFacebook is to open a 55,000 square metre data centre in Denmark, the third such facility it has built outside the US, which is to be powered entirely by clean energy.It was reported last October that the social network had purchased land in Odense, the country s third largest city, and the Danish government said the deal was the product of three years of confidential preparation.I am very happy that Denmark has managed to attract yet another big foreign direct investment, declared Minister for Foreign Affairs Anders Samuelsen.Facebook s investment is … a great example of how joint efforts can create jobs, growth and development in Denmark. I am of course proud of Facebook s investment in Odense, but this investment also represents a broad recognition of Denmark as a country that has something special to offer, added Minister for Energy, Utilities and Climate, Lars Christian Lilleholt.
Using the trick, the videos are never actually published to the public-facing section of Google's YouTube.Instead, uploaders are using it as a hosting provider, with videos stored directly on Google's servers and the private links later given out, TorrentFreak reported.Private videos, for example, cannot be embedded to another website directly, but unlisted ones can – meaning the scope of the technique may be limited.Yet according to TorrentFreak, the method is increasingly favoured by pirates looking to host movies, music and porn because it means uploads can circumvent YouTube's notorious scanning technology, called Content-ID – at least on a temporary basis.Multiple media outlets are reporting YouTube allows videos containing pornography to be embedded on other websites, which is explicitly not the case."There is a big loophole on YouTube," a representative of a California-based adult production firm called Dreamroom Productions told TorrentFreak while complaining about piracy.

Herder 2016, 382 sivua, 22 euroa.Brexit, pakolaiskriisi ja Karlsruhen OMT-päätös.Kolme syytä, joiden vuoksi Saksan ekonomistikunnan nestori Hans-Werner Sinn peruutti viime syksyn lomamatkansa ja ryhtyi kirjoittamaan uutta kirjaa.Synkkä nimi Musta kesäkuu tulee siitä, että viime kesäkuussa Iso-Britannia päätti kansanäänestyksessä erota EU:sta, ja Karlsruhessa istuva Saksan perustuslakituomioistuin päätti hyväksyä Euroopan keskuspankin EKP:n niin sanotut Suorat rahapoliittiset operaatiot eli OMT:t.Sinn oli odottanut toisenlaisia ratkaisuja.Brexit-päätös johtui Sinnin mielestä suurelta osin EU:n omista virheistä.
The homepage shows your activity score, which is just a number goal translated from the total steps you've taken and the total amount of activity you've completed.I'm not the biggest fan of these point systems—I'd rather see my total step count and distance calculations and judge my daily activity goal off that.You can also tap on the moon icon to switch to sleep view.This is where your auto-tracked activities appear and where you can give them an exercise category if you wish.Most of the Phase's magic happens in the device settings.This is where you can turn on the vibrating Alarm feature, change app notifications, and turn on on Misfit Move, which is the inactive alert feature that will buzz the Phase when you've been sitting too long and wave the watchhands crazily, too, which is cute .
San Francisco startup AppDynamics snuck its long-delayed S-1 in right before the end of 2016, and in an updated filing on Thursday, the company announced that it will price its IPO between $10 and $12 a share.The problem is that, even at $12 a share, the IPO will value AppDynamics at around $1.5 billion — which is less than the startup's last private valuation of $1.9 billion.
As the clock winds down before President-elect Donald Trump s inauguration, tech workers in the Bay Area are prepping for an uphill battle against the incoming administration.A group called Tech Solidarity has been gathering tech workers and other advocates to discuss what they can do to prepare for what Trump may do once he officially becomes president, including the creation of a Muslim registry.And the meetings are reportedly attracting the attendance of some high-profile Silicon Valley executives such as Facebook Chief Security Officer Alex Stamos, Recode reported.Stamos declined to comment to the tech blog, but gave them permission to print his name.The group has already met twice in the Bay Area and 155 people attended their last meeting on Jan. 6, according to a tweet from Tech Solidarity.Maciej Ceglowski, a Polish-born developer who runs bookmarking site Pinboard and Heather Gold, a Bay Area comedian and freelance writer, have been organizing the events.The rules: everything you hear is public, but don t attribute comments, or identify participants, without permission.Meeting dates and times are publicized on the group s Twitter account, but people are asked to contact the organizer for more details about the location.They ve raised concerns about the troves of data that major companies such as Google and Facebook collect about its users and how it could be used to identify or target Muslims.I understand that companies collecting behavioral data can t change their entire business model, but there are many ways we can do it more safely.How do we throw sand in the gears?
Whether it s as part of modern education to prepare people for life in the digital economy, or just because we re nerds who like cool tech, it s easy to see how a robot fits into the lives of young OK, young-ish in our case!But a startup thinks they can have just as profound an impact — if not greater — on the life of an elderly person.Such a robot could help maintain their independence by reminding them to take medication and get some exercise, or recommending audiobooks and playing games to keep users mentally active.Enter Intuition Robotics and its ElliQ robot, which is designed to act a bit like a specially tailored Amazon Echo, but with more of a personality.These days, the silver generation is quite independent and active, with the vast majority of older adults preferring to age in their own homes, Dor Skuler, CEO and founder of Intuition Robotics, told Digital Trends.At the same time, they are often isolated, considering that family members often live far away and many don t see friends more than once or twice a week.
I går kunde Breakit avslöja att Izettle i det tysta tagit in 130 miljoner kronor i en tidigare okänd nyemission under sommaren.Sannolikt handlar det om pengar som delvis användes till förvärvet av brittiska Intelligencepos.Izettle fyller på sin kassa med ytterligare 440 miljoner kronor.Pengarna kommer i form av lånefinansiering från amerikanska Victory Park Capital.Tillväxten i den tjänsten har slagit alla förväntningar, som var högt ställda", säger Johan Bendz, marknadschef på Izettle till Breakit.Tjänsten Izettle Advance, lanserad 2015, låter Izettle-kunder få ett slags förskott på framtida intäkter.

The U.S. Air Force's mysterious X-37B space plane has now spent 600 days in Earth orbit on the vessel's latest mission, and is nearing a program record for longest time spent in space.The robotic X-37B lifted off atop a United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket from Florida's Cape Canaveral Air Force Station on May 20, 2015, kicking off the program's fourth space mission which is known as Orbital Test Vehicle-4, or OTV-4 .If the uncrewed spacecraft spends 74 more days aloft, it will break the duration record set during OTV-3, which touched down in October 2014.The X-37B's Fourth Mystery Mission in Photos But it's unclear how long OTV-4 will last, or just what the X-37B is doing as it circles Earth; most details about the space plane's missions and payloads are classified.The first OTV mission began on April 22, 2010, and concluded on Dec. 3 of that year, following 224 days of orbit.
Gordon Brown finally wrestled the keys to Number 10 from Tony Blair.Oh, and let's not forget the 450kg squid that was snared by intrepid Kiwi fisherman off Antarctica...Technology had its watershed moment, too, when one Steven Paul Jobs took to the stage at the the Macworld conference Macworld!There have been no less than 11 iPhones since that launch, while the handset heirarchy has shifted from names like BlackBerry, Nokia, and Palm to Google, Samsung, and OnePlus.With all this in mind, let's take a light-hearted look back at our original iPhone review – the humbly titled, 'Apple iPhone review' – penned by TrustedReviews' co-founder and first editor, Riyad Emeran.With the 'CrackBerry' plague having infected moody teenagers and pyramid scheming business folk alike, QWERTY was the height of cool in 2007, making the keyboard-free iPhone revolutionary – or just batshit crazy.

It s hard to remember a time before smartphones.Amazingly though, it was just 10 years ago today, January 9, that Apple shook not just the tech space, but the entire world with the unveiling of the original iPhone.Yes, the rate of smartphone evolution might have slowed recently, but the next wave of iPhones are going to be even more exciting than those that have come before.Here s everything you can expect from the next decade of iPhones.Let s start with something that will be with us towards the beginning of this next 10-year cycle, a curved iPhone.A long mooted iPhone addition, the tech s already there - just look at the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge - and dozens of patents have shown that Apple is already working on the futuristic phone.
Anonymised and aggregated data will eventually be made publicly available.Uber is to start offering anonymised data sharing to city officials from trips on its ride-hailing platform.The idea is to help city officials, planners, and policy makers to use the data and better understand traffic patterns, which could then be used to improve investments in infrastructure.The company is launching a new public website called Movement , which will show trip data such as the average travel time between different city zones in addition to historical travel data for planning authorities.Uber has been reluctant in the past to share data, citing concerns for passenger privacy as a core reason for denying data requests.However, now the company will be sharing at least some of its data and all of this is said to be anonymised and aggregated on the Movement site.
