Easier communication with doctors could help relieve some of those fears, and technology can play a key role in making that happen.Platforms like Doctella, where medical professionals can create apps specific to their practice and each patient's condition without any coding, make it simpler for doctors to check in on patients outside the office.The site provides templates for doctors to choose from and then customize to their liking.From what we could find, it's one of the first such platforms that lets doctors make personalized apps without the need for software developers.His or her doctor can virtually check in by sending survey questions via the Doctella app or through the web portal.Amer Haider, CEO and co-founder of Doctella, said the main idea is to capture data from sensors -- on fitness trackers, phones or cloud services, for example -- and marry that information with patient-reported outcomes and subjective data, creating a more effective way for medical professionals to process information and deliver care accordingly.

En fet stationär pc är bra på många sätt, men inte för den som vill ha det prydligt på arbetsplatsen.Ska du inte göra mer med datorn än surfa och kontorsjobba finns det egentligen ingen anledning att satsa på en jättelåda.Asus har en hel serie stationära datorer i mindre format kallade Vivo Mini.Den senaste av dessa, Vivo Mini UN65U är kompaktare än någonsin.Det är den första kompakta skrivbordsdator vi sett i samma minimala stil som vår gamla favorit Fujitsu Sylistic Q (som tyvärr gick i graven för flera år sedan).Vivo Mini UN65U är lika bred som den är djup, drygt 13x13 centimeter, med rundade kanter och lätt välvd ovansida.

Let's make sure that code you're pulling in is legit code, not some scumbag's libraryCode registry npm, home to some 550,000 Node.js packages and millions of users, on Wednesday added support for two-factor authentication (2FA) and read-only authentication tokens in an effort to shore up its defenses.Software registries, which store modules required by modern apps, have attracted the attention of malware makers as a relatively undefended path for distributing compromised code.Following an academic research project last year that demonstrated the possibility of typosquatting popular software packages on registries like Python's PyPI, Node.JS's npm and Ruby's gem, both npm and PyPI this year had to deal with real typosquatting attacks.npm has added support for 2FA through via authentication apps such as Google Authenticator or Authy.These apps generate a time-based one-time password that must be entered when signing into an npm account, in addition to the account password.

Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL owners will be able to take advantage of a useful new feature that will help keep them safe on the road.When enabled, this new feature will automatically put the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL into Do Not Disturb mode when they sense they’re in a car.As first reported by Android Police, the new feature was found in the screenshots posted with the Pixel Ambient Services app, which is now available in the Google Play Store.The screenshot of the menu option says that this DND feature, when enabled, is automatically turned on when the phone senses it is in a moving vehicle.It uses the phone’s own motion sensors, along with Bluetooth connections, to make that determination.If you are driving and don’t want to answer any incoming calls or texts on your Pixel 2 while on your trip, the DND toggle will keep it from alerting you.

Google announced today its competition to Apple’s AirPods: Google Pixel Buds.The wireless headphones integrate Google Assistant without the need of taking your phone out to check notifications, or to switch songs.All of the controls are built into the right earbud: you can swipe forwards and backwards to change the volume, and tap for other uses.By far, the most revolutionary feature is the real time translator, only available for Pixel users.The wireless headphones become a personal translator in your phone, allowing you to translate from and to 40 different languages, powered by Google’s translation AI.The headphones come with a pocket-sized charging case, with 5 hours of listening time with one charge, although the case itself gives you up to 24 hours of listening time on the go.

Yes, 58 people are dead and scores more injured because a sniper with enough big guns to arm an infantry squad unloaded on an outdoor concert.But if you don’t already know what a “bump stock” is, can’t identify the difference between “fully automatic” and “modified semiautomatic” from the sound of the gunshots alone, or think “assault rifle” is actually a thing, well, maybe you should leave this argument to the experts.Because that kind of conversational hijacking—call it gunsplaining—is a big part of the reason a country with all the freedom and all the weapons can’t seem to solve its death problem.Stephen Paddock, the killer in Las Vegas, used a “bump stock,” a sort of spring mechanism that let his semiautomatic guns approximate the firing speed of automatic ones.Get any of the words wrong—as I almost certainly have, in some detail or other—and you are deemed unqualified for the tense, overdue conversation about guns and death in America.That love of detail, the in-grouping of like-minded people based on the ability to recognize specific brands and modifications, the argumentation by means of hypercorrect vocabulary, the collector’s impulse to buy more guns: These are hallmarks of nerds.

It ought to be at least a little bit easier to get a Pixel this year.Google says it’s updating its online store so that if the Pixels are out of stock, you’ll be able to reserve one and hold a place in line.In the past, you had to put your name on a waiting list and then wait for Google to email you.These updates don’t sound like they change the situation dramatically, but it seems like they should make ordering the new Pixels a little bit easier.Last year, Google had a tough time keeping both models of its phone in stock.Some of that may have been due to demand, but it seemed more to do with Google’s suppliers simply being unable to produce enough of them.

What might it be like to live on Mars?Bjarke Ingels Group — the architects behind the designs for Two World Trade Center in Manhattan and the Hyperloop One — has an idea.The firm is designing a city in the desert of the United Arab Emirates meant to simulate a Mars colony.The $140 million development near Dubai is slated to be "a viable and realistic model to simulate living on the surface of Mars," according to the local government.The plan calls for a team of astronauts to spend a year living in the simulated city after it's completed.However, there's no timeline for construction yet.

Acknowledging that more customers prefer Spotify, Microsoft said it would discontinue its four-year-old Groove Music Pass service by the end of the year and shift its customers over to Spotify.Microsoft won’t discontinue the related Groove Music app within Windows 10, which will still stream purchased and uploaded music stored on a user’s PC and on the OneDrive cloud service.But Groove Music Pass—priced at $9.99 per month, the same as Spotify Premium—will go away as of December 31.At that time, Groove Music will no longer stream from its Music Pass service.Instead, Microsoft will ask users to connect its Groove Music service to a Spotify Premium account, which consumers will have to sign up for.When they do so, Microsoft will move any music that the Groove user has purchased over to Spotify.

That is not a joke headline.It blows my mind, but last year, an Ad-ology study found, 46 percent of small businesses surveyed said they did not have a website.Granted, the number of small businesses with websites took a jump in the past two years, from 33 percent to 45 percent, a Discover study showed.How many more small businesses will join them this year?In the Discover study, 46 percent of respondents said it's a myth that every company needs a website.And they're right--companies that don't want to be successful certainly shouldn't spend the time and money to develop a company site.

If you've ever read a blog, joined an online discussion group or uploaded a photo to Flickr, you've engaged in social media.In the past, social media sites--especially social networking sites such as MySpace--have been seen as a vehicle mainly for young people.In fact, according to a recent industry report by comScore, more than half of the visitors to social networking websites such as MySpace, Facebook, Flickr and Live Journal are now 35 and older.It's worth being aware of the various elements that make up the social media landscape, and concentrating on the ones that are particularly applicable to your business.Unfiltered and opinionated, blogs combine the insightfulness of industry journals with the instant feedback of a focus group.However, to reap the rewards, you must first understand the medium and then determine the best way to leverage this dynamic and far-reaching online universe.

The Federal Aviation Administration announced new rules for drone use around key US landmarks including monuments and dams.Under the new restrictions, drones are not to fly within 400 feet of the designated landmarks.The FAA says these rules were implemented at the request of US security and law enforcement agencies.These locations are just the latest added to the growing list of the FAA’s no-fly zones which includes airports and airstrips, army bases, sports stadiums, and national parks.Interestingly enough, half of the locations on the latest list are dams, which shows the FAA is taking a stronger stance against drones around utilities as well.The restrictions will be effective October 5, 2017.

By most standards, a 10 percent online lead-conversion rate is nothing to sneeze at."Our whole business depends on us successfully converting online leads," he says, "and we got accused all the time of having an old-school, '90s-looking website that was not very visually appealing.The JangoMail site was redesigned with pale lavender graphics, an interactive "Ask Us" feature and plenty of scannable icons.And it made an almost immediate difference: Within a month of the relaunch, JangoMail's online lead conversion rate tripled to 30 percent."Everybody loves a deal," says Adam Glickman, founder of condomania.com, a safe-sex e-tailer."It's about offering lots of channels for follow-up through web pages and e-mail," says Jay Bower, president of the Crossbow Group, a digital marketing services firm in Westport, Conn.

And tweets stay visible in the Twitter search results only until they're buried by newer tweets.So Twitter's recently announced "promoted tweets" as a way to beat the clock--and to be seen in a search engine that caters to the most impatient searchers on the planet.But these are not ads.Twitter has been very careful to fit its new advertising program with its carefully cultivated "users in charge" philosophy.So, unlike regular online advertising, where an algorithm decides whether or not an ad is relevant to the user's query, on Twitter, the users themselves give the yea or nay--by retweeting, replying, adding it to their favorites or otherwise responding to it.The advertiser reserves a keyword and sets a budget, then chooses a tweet to promote.
