Microsoft is working hard to make sure that the Windows 10 you run on one kind of device acts just like the Windows 10 you run on any other.Microsoft s goal of a billion Windows 10 users, while delayed, hinges on the operating system s ability to run on virtually every kind of device.Windows 10 currently runs on a tremendous variety of form factors, including desktops, notebooks, tablets, 2-in-1s, Xbox One, HoloLens, Surface Hub, smartphones, and Internet of Things IoT .On the surface and deep in its guts, Windows 10 is essentially the same OS on all of these devices.It looks roughly the same, it runs the same basic foundation known as OneCore, and it runs the same apps thanks to the Universal Windows Platform.While there s a great deal of Windows 10 that s shared across devices, the Windows Shell, or the environment that we interact with as users, is different — but that might be changing soon, as Windows Central reports.

Vine as we know it is dead.Today Twitter turned off sharing, Liking, commenting, and Revining in Vine, and released its succesor Vine Camera as an app update on iOS and Android.It s also discontinued the Vine Windows Phone app.For now you can still open the old Vine app if you don t update, where you can view your old feed and profile, and download your videos.But Twitter confirms to me that eventually if you don t update to Vine Camera, the app will stop working and you won t have any functionality.There s not much of a walkthrough to give for Vine Camera.

Kortadresser är bekväma, men kan vara farliga om du inte känner till källan.Du har säkert både sett och använt dem – förkortade webbadresser som gör en lång och invecklad adress betydligt behändigare att använda.Det finns gott om tjänster på nätet där du själv kan skapa sådana korta adresser.Exempel är Bitly bit.ly , Googles egen goo.gl , Hootsuite ow.ly , Twitter t.co , Gilby tinyurl.com, Gravity4 tr.im och Korturl korturl.com .Det här är ett behändigt sätt att exempelvis skicka korta länkar till dina vänner i stället för de horribelt långa teckenkombinationer som ibland förekommer på webben.Men du kanske får dem själv ibland också eller hittar dem på nätet.

Silicon Valley computer vision startup Eonite is revealing its low-cost, accurate, and low-power solution for inside-out positional head tracking for virtual reality and augmented reality headsets.That s a big deal, because VR and AR headsets will be much better once when they have this kind of tracking, which allows a headset to sense its environment.By contrast, today s most powerful VR headsets — such as the HTC Vive and the Oculus Rift — use outside-in tracking, where external sensors are placed in a room to detect a person wearing a headset.Eonite promises to make VR and AR much more immersive and fun, and that s why it has been able to raise $5.25 million in seed funding from leading Silicon Valley venture capitalists and angels, including Lightspeed Venture Partners, Signia Venture Partners, Presence Capital, The VR Fund, Rising Tide, and CLI Ventures.They ve really nailed the inside-out tracking, said Rick Thompson, partner at Signia Venture Partners, in an interview.Eonite belives that its Eonite Vantage Head Tracker software will be much better at tracking than current options and will cost a lot less.Youssri Helmy, CEO and founder of Eonite, said in an interview with GamesBeat that external sensors account for as much as 30 percent of the cost of today s VR headsets.Eonite used a limited camera with a 40-degree field of view.I could turn around and track some flying drones in a demo app, and the system generally followed wherever I moved my eyes and body.

The same report also claims that Chinese mobile production companies Oppo, Vivo, Huawei, and BBK are investing in flexible OLED producer Royole, which is also headquartered in China.This team-up is said to help ensure that there is enough AMOLED displays to go around - both for Apple or any other companies interested in using the technology.Concerns over supply may mean that it might take some time for AMOLED displays to really catch on, calling back on a previous report that Apple may be considering reserving the top-tier displays for a higher-end model of the iPhone 8.iPhone-ing it in too soon?QHD, as we have on the Samsung Galaxy S7, is more than sharp enough for using it as a phone, but it's not quite up to scratch for VR, so it makes sense for Samsung to push the resolution up for at least one version of the Samsung Galaxy S8.This feature has been hugely improved on the new Note, with more pictures added to the mix and a richer display hanging about on the phone when it's turned off.

If you ve tried Google s Home device, you ve probably encountered its smart voice-activated Assistant, delivering relevant information from the Web and playing music and video on demand.At CES in Las Vegas, the company announced that it s bringing Assistant to your TV, as well as Android Wear smartwatches and in-car entertainment systems.Google s rival to Siri and Alexa will become available on Android TV-based televisions and set-top boxes running Android Marshmallow 6.0 or newer, to do things like playing content from Netflix, searching YouTube for specific videos, control your connected home devices such as lights and speakers, and ask questions like What are mastodons?and How long will it take me to get to work?That means you won t need a Google Home to enjoy the benefits of having Google Assistant around – simply turn on your TV and you ll be able to invoke it by saying, OK Google .The feature will become available in the coming months in the US on devices like the Nvidia Shield, Xiaomi Mi Box, and Android TVs like Sony s Bravia screens.

On Wednesday, Hollywood legend John Carpenter hit back at neo-Nazis and white supremacists online who had been idolizing his 1988 cult classic, They Live, as an allegory for fighting against Jewish supremacy.Online conspiracies and corner of the internet scrawls have long since crossed over to the mainstream.But Carpenter, rather than counting his millions and resting on his legacy, decided to strike back against the trolls and racists by taking to Twitter to call the myth slander and a lie.It s a sharp sci-fi satire loaded with ridiculous Double Dragon-style 80's sheen.The film features the instantly recognizable scene of protagonist John Nada putting on a pair of huge-ass sunglasses and realizing the world has been colonized by aliens, who have already enslaved humans into a system of unchecked capitalism and consumption—but no one noticed.In the surrealist shit show that life post-2016 has become, however, Carpenter had to step in almost 30 years later to clarify that the film is not, in fact, an allegory for Jewish supremacy.

LG wants to become the king of the LCD TV hill, announcing today a new line of Super UHD LCD TVs.There are three 4K TVs in this new line – SJ9500, SJ8500 and SJ8000 – and all of them use LG s Nano Cell technology.Nano Cell works in tandem with other features like HDR to provide the best picture possible, with accurate colors that don t fade as much when your viewing angle changes.In fact, LG s announcement says that there s virtually no color difference for viewers sitting at 60-degree angle from the TV, which is impressive if such a claim holds up under further scrutiny.LG Nano Cell dramatically reduces instances of colour fading, image instability and other color degradation issues, the announcement reads.Nano Cell technology also reduces on-screen light glow to maintain high picture quality even when the screen is surrounded by intense ambient lighting.

Polarizing filters can be an essential part of a photography tool set, as they suppress glare, make blue skies pop, and offer an additional way to control the light in your scene.And if you have some old electronics that you can mine for spare parts, you might already have a filter.It turns out the glass screens on old liquid crystal displays that you can find on something like a calculator or an old Nokia phone have a transparent layer that acts as a polarizing filter.If you disassemble the device and are careful not to break the screen, of course , you can use it as a rough but ready polarizing filter.Obviously such a small screen won t work with your DSLR, but you can experiment with your smartphone camera to see how the filter works.You can also try shooting photos through your sunglasses if you have polarized lenses.
