Video tripods tend to be big and bulky, but the MeVideo Globetrotter keeps to its travel-focused design.MeFoto is known for its colorful, travel-friendly camera tripods, but now the company’s focus on portability is leading it to tackle an even bigger accessory — video tripods.On October 16, MeFoto announced the MeVideo sister brand along with the new MeVideo Globetrotter launching on Kickstarter.The MeVideo Globetrotter has several features in common with the tripod of the same name from MeFoto (not to be confused with the MeFoto Air series for smartphones), including reverse-folding legs and a center column that converts into a monopod.The MeVideo Globetrotter takes several of those features and adapts them for use with video.The MeVideo’s unique video head mixes a traditional video head with a ball-style leveling column that allows for adjustments using knobs instead of going back and re-adjusting the legs.
It’s well past time to put to rest any doubt surrounding Microsoft’s hardware ambitions.Over the past few years, the company has transformed the Surface line from boutique proof of concept to one of the more innovative and forward-looking PC brands on the market.The Surface Book is one of the best examples of the line — released in 2015, it was quickly embraced as one of the best laptops on the market.Microsoft took the wraps off the Surface Book 2 this morning.This latest version advances things further, with a 15-inch model, up to 17 hours of battery life and further souped up processing, courtesy of 8th-gen Intel dual- and quad-core processors.The device looks pretty similar to its predecessor, though Microsoft claims to have made tweaks to virtually every aspect of the thing, down to backlit keyboard and singular flexible hinge.

An anonymous reader quotes a report from Neowin: Kaspersky Lab, which has been under fire by the U.S. government as possibly being an agent of the Russian government and spying on U.S. computers, has found a previously unknown bug in Adobe Flash that was apparently exploited by a hacker group on October 10.Adobe issued a patch to fix the bug today.According to Kaspersky, "the exploit is delivered through a Microsoft Word document and deploys the FinSpy commercial malware."The company worked with Adobe to get a patch ready as quickly as possible, with Adobe releasing it a few hours ago.Users and agencies running the following versions of Adobe Flash will need to update immediately, as the vulnerability has been labeled as critical.The patch updates all versions of Adobe Flash to version 220.127.116.11.
The blockchain space has been innovating at an incredible pace over the past year.If someone had told you that insurance company AIG was conducting a multi-country smart contract test, you’d have thought they were crazy.Certainly, the idea of putting an Arkansas chicken farm on a blockchain would have seemed ludicrous.Ethereum was under $10 and Bitcoin was under $650 a year ago.Over the past year, the earliest students and practitioners of blockchains and decentralized systems recognized the real innovation, the so-called “killer app” of the blockchain era: the ICO (or the more SEC-friendly version, known as a “Token Generation Event”), but not because it’s a way to raise money for an entity.Instead, the ICO (er, TGE) represents an entirely new paradigm for the funding and promotion of sustainable innovation with ever faster feedback loops, which leads to even more innovation that, in the long term, handsomely rewards the entrepreneur risk-takers as well as the earliest adopters who believe in the long-term potential of the idea.
Wall Street banks that weren't already on the bitcoin bandwagon appear to be piling on, or least eyeing seats, after the cryptocurrency surged to all-time highs this week on the way to $6,000.From a report: Analysts are working to keep up with demand from clients for information.UBS and Citigroup published extensive explainers on blockchain technology, while senior executives at JPMorgan Chase warmed to the cryptocurrency during the bank's third-quarter earnings call.The digital currency has risen more than fivefold after trading at less than $1,000 as recently as December, breaking the $5,000 mark this week and already targeting the next thousand-dollar level.Throughout its rise, the cryptocurrency shrugged off tighter regulations, feuding factions and warnings from the likes of JPMorgan's Jamie Dimon of fraud and an eventual price collapse.
Sir Richard Branson has invested in the futuristic transportation technology Hyperloop, promising to build the "world's most revolutionary train service".Sir Richard led a $85m (£65m) investment in Hyperloop One, a California-based company that is the first to successfully test the high-speed magnetic levitation technology.As part of the deal the company will be renamed Virgin Hyperloop One and enter Sir Richard's Virgin Group umbrella.Hyperloop, the brainchild of Tesla chief executive Elon Musk, involves pods being propelled through a near-vacuum at speeds of up to 700mph.Musk has proposed the system as a new form of high-speed travel that could cut the time between cities from hours to minutes.Sir Richard joined Hyperloop One's funding round last month, which valued the company at more than $700m.
Snapchat is adored by the teens of the world.According to a recent survey conducted by Piper Jaffray, Snapchat is the favorite social media platform among teens, who are considered a key demographic for tech.Nearly half, 47%, said that Snapchat was their preferred social media platform, blowing Instagram (24%) and Facebook (9%) out of the water.The good news for Snapchat is teen interest in the app isn't just stagnant, it's growing.Since the spring of 2015, Snapchat has grown from being the favorite app of just 11% of teens to being the favorite app of 46% of the key demographic.It's mostly stolen market share from Twitter, but Facebook and Instagram have also lost share as well.

Organizations who operate integrated marketing campaigns using both digital and non-digital channels report significantly higher satisfaction with their results compared to those managing digital-only channels, non-digital only channels or working those channels in silos.And despite reporting generally higher pressure – both internally and from competitors – these marketers are significantly more likely to test new ideas, try new channels and operate them in a fully integrated environment.Those with integrated campaigns were more likely to report overall campaign effectiveness and were more likely to have increased overall marketing investments over the past 1-2 years.Other key findings from the Heinz/PFL 2018 Multichannel Marketing Effectiveness Report:Nearly 60 percent of multichannel marketers spend less than half of their budget on digital channels, citing non-digital channels as key to their success and effectivenessMarketers integrating all channels are more than twice as likely to report higher marketing effectiveness vs those using fewer channels and less integration
Mental health organisation BeyondBlue is tackling anxiety in a new campaign for World Mental Health Day.The campaign, which features a man suffering anxiety at work, aims to raise awareness of the health condition and help people experiencing the symptoms to seek support.The 'Know When Anxiety is Talking' campaign, which includes TV, radio, social content and OOH, aims to help demystify the condition, which is often confused with stress.Anxiety is the most common mental health condition in Australia and affects 2 million people in any given year, which is twice as many as depression.Despite this, many sufferers take a long time to recognise their symptoms.The campaign aims to help people to identify their anxiety sooner to ensure they seek treatment faster.
The thorny issue of tracking of location data without risking individual privacy is very neatly illustrated via a Freedom of Information (FOI) request asking London’s transport regulator to release the “anonymized” data-set it generated from a four week trial last year when it tracked metro users in the UK capital via wi-fi nodes and the MAC address of their smartphones as they traveled around its network.However in an email seen by TechCrunch, TfL has now turned down an FOI request asking for it to release the “full dataset of anonymized data for the London Underground Wifi Tracking Trial” — arguing that it can’t release the data as there is a risk of individuals being re-identified (and disclosing personal data would be a breach of UK data protection law).The likelihood of this identification of an individual occurring would be increased by a disclosure of the data into the public domain, which would increase the range of other data sets against which it could be matched.”So what value is there in data being “de-personalized” — and a reassuring narrative of ‘safety via anonymity’ being spun to smartphone users whose comings and goings are being passively tracked — if individual privacy could still be compromised?“The data per se is not anonymous,” he tells TechCrunch.“They’re specifically saying they’re not doing it but it would not be hard for them to do it.”
Razer’s Blade Stealth recently received a new gunmetal color option, and after spending some time with the laptop, it makes all the difference to change the look from “classy gamer” to plain old “classy.”It’s been a long time coming.Razer was the first major company to show that gaming laptops didn’t have to be giant, heavy slabs of RGB gaudiness when it first introduced the Blade series.Over the years, it’s refined its design, but the laptops have retained the same basic combination of matte black metal and green accents.It was clean enough to not look totally out of place in an office, but it still wasn’t everyone’s cup of tea.The new gunmetal color instead just makes the Blade Stealth looks like an attractive MacBook-esque laptop.

I went back and forth between Clear and Oppo's PM-2 open-back planar magnetic headphones several times as a point of reference.The Focal Clear feature an M-shaped, inverted-dome, full-range driver measuring 40mm.Focal bundles equally high-end accessories with the Clear, including a luxurious hard-shell carrying case.Works with any mobile deviceDue to their high impedance, some high-end headphones sound best or even require a dedicated headphone amplifier.I had no problem using the Focal Clear headphones with an iPhone 7, an Astell AK70, or a Sony NWZ-A17.
In Forza Motorsports 6, buying the VIP Pass entitled players to a permanent boost that doubled purse winnings.When Forza 7 launched, many who purchased the game sprang for the extra $40 to pick up the Ultimate Edition, which includes a VIP membership and additional perks.Other’s just opted for the $20 VIP Pass.Those players were surprised and upset to find that their privileges were now limited.Instead of the usual permanent CR (the in-game currency) boost, they received five 100-percent CR bonus Mod cards.Microsoft and developer Turn 10 immediately felt the backlash when the store rating for the VIP pass plummeted to a dismal 1.3 (545 one-star reviews to 34 five-star ratings as of this writing).
Intel has announced that it is bringing its metal-themed processor nomenclature to mainstream parts, after first introducing it for the latest Xeon processors.Intel has traditionally relied upon numbering to differentiate its various product ranges, starting way-back-when with the 4004 microprocessor.Following competition from AMD and other rivals creating similarly-numbered parts Intel switched to model names it could trademark with the Pentium family and has remained there ever since, but still uses numbers to differentiate between products within a family.The Skylake-based Xeon Processor Scalable family, announced earlier this year, brought with it a major shift to the way the company markets its parts: As well as the family name, range number, and individual product numbers, the new Xeon chips include Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum monikers to indicate where in the market they are designed to sit from entry-level to flagship.Intel has this week released a product change notification (PCN), first spotted by Tweakers.net, which indicates the company is bringing the same tiered metal theme to its mainstream ranges, starting with the relaunched Pentium family.From November this year, the company has confirmed, the Kaby Lake based Pentium ranges will come with the same metal theming as the Xeon Scalable parts: dual-core parts will be rebranded as Pentium Gold and low-power system-on-chip (SoC) parts as Pentium Silver.
