For better and sometimes worse, Twitter is one of the most powerful forces on the planet.Every day, Twitter contributes to the political debate, the sharing of ideas and the widespread dissemination, via links, of news articles and the otherwise obscure findings of academics and nonprofit studies.Like every social platform, there is noise filled with high-minded discussions as well as seemingly mundane conversations.What is perhaps unique about Twitter is the dichotomy between this valuable role in empowering and connecting people and its ongoing lack of profitability.With restructuring charges, Twitter’s net loss in the fourth quarter of 2016 was $167 million, or 23 cents a share, and less than 1 percent year-over-year revenue growth.Twitter, like all social media, has evolved dramatically since its founding.

Do you ever wish you could just take a trip down nostalgia lane and dabble in the mesmerizing history of vintage computers?The Old Computer Museum is your portal to the past.The quirky museum is essentially an online collection of tons of information about phased-out computing tech.There you’ll find timeless classics like the MITS Altair 8800 from 1975, the Commodore 64 from 1982, the Atari 520ST from 1985 and many other antiques from the period between 1970 and 1995.What is particularly captivating about the quirky website is that, in addition to images, information and list of specs for the outdated computers, it also occasionally shows some of the advertisements manufacturers ran back in the day as part of their marketing efforts.Since debuting back in 2002, the online museum has been visited over 27 million times, according to its own counter.

Ett brett spann av olika tekniker och möjligheten att bidra till att öka tryggheten i samhället var det som lockade både Malin Sjödin och Azam Roomi till Polisens IT-avdelning.Polismyndigheten, vars IT-avdelning finns på bland annat Kungsholmen i Stockholm, har drygt 740 medarbetare och levererar IT-stöd till hela polismyndigheten.Avdelningens storlek, och bredden när det kommer till olika tekniker, gör att det finns något för alla – oavsett inriktning eller intresse.– Den bredd som vår IT-avdelning erbjuder gör att det finns goda möjligheter att vidareutvecklas, att testa på jobb inom andra sektioner och grupper, och att nischa sig inom ett specifikt område, säger Azam Roomi som jobbar som gruppchef och produktägare för Ärendehantering som tillhör enheten Utveckling och Applikationsförvaltning.Han är även tillförordnad gruppchef och produktägare för Informationshantering som ligger inom samma enhet.Det Azam Roomi gillar mest med sitt jobb är att leda team till att jobba mer effektivt och agilt.

Write your message in lemon juice on paper, and when the juice dries it cannot be seen.Since lasers are what make life worthwhile, others evidently felt the same.As the electrons shake up and down, they absorb and re-emit light from the laser.These electrons are bound to atoms, so they are not completely free to move around.Particular crystal structures will emit light with half the wavelength, while glasses (which are not crystalline) will emit light with a third the wavelength.The structures are very simple: little (about 150nm wide) gold Y-shapes on a glass plate.

The following is an excerpt from the essay collection Offworld, which focuses on gaming and culture.Edited by Leigh Alexander and Laura Hudson, it's available from indie game publisher Campo Santo.Scratch, a free tool designed for kids that I also covered in my book, is still about perfect.But as far as graphical game-making tools go, I find myself wishing more tools were like the WarioWare D.I.Y.for the Nintendo DS, whose servers finally went offline a couple of years ago.WarioWare’s tutorial celebrates “laziness”—doing things as quickly and functionally as possible, paying more attention to how something feels than how polished it is.

Nintendo is sending out the last shipments of the NES Classic Edition this month, and then it is discontinuing that throwback mini-console.On this week’s episode of the GamesBeat Decides podcast, host Jeffrey Grubb and co-host Mike Minotti try to figure out why the hell Nintendo would stop making its retro gaming machine that comes with 30 classic games for the Nintendo Entertainment System.Maybe the publisher has future plans involving either a new NES Classic or the Switch’s virtual console that preclude the existence of the miniature faux-8-bit machine.We discuss all of the possibilities in the second half of the show.Listen to the GamesBeat Decides podcastIn addition to the NES Classic, the GB Decides crew also breaks down the news from the last week.Bayonetta is now on Steam, EA confirmed Star Wars: Battlefront II, and Microsoft is testing self-service refunds.Hear all about that and more by clicking play on the video above or on the player below.Join us, won’t you?Disagree with something we said?

Uber has lost yet another executive after a vice president whose remit included the self-driving car division resigned in a blow to the company, which is currently fighting a high-profile lawsuit with Google about the autonomous technology.Sherif Markaby resigned from his position as Uber's vice president of global vehicle programmes a year after he joined the company from Ford, where he had spent 25 years and was director of global electronics and engineering.It is not clear what triggered Mr Markaby's departure, which marks the fifth high-profile exit from Uber in recent months, but it will raise doubts about the firm's ability to bonce back from its current state of crisis.The scandal-ridden company is currently fighting against allegations that it stole its driverless car technology from Google, and trying to recover from claims of sexual harassment in its head offices.In the UK it is also appealing an employment tribunal's ruling that its drivers should be classed as employees, which could destabilise its business model.Uber said the departure is not related to the lawsuit.

Det ska sägas att ökningen är knapp.När analysföretaget IDC summerar det första kvartalet så ökar den globala pc-försäljningen med 0,6 procent, jämfört med motsvarande period förra året, men låt oss sätta detta i ett perspektiv:2015 minskade försäljningen med 10,6 procent.Det här har gjort att pc-leveranserna faktiskt minskat med 30 procent om man utgår från en topp som var 2011, säger Jay Chou som är analyschef på IDC.– Men användarna har i allmänhet snarare skjutit upp sina pc-inköp, de har inte gett upp pc:n för andra enheter.Ser vi på företagsmarknaden så går denna in i en ersättningscykel som kommer att driva tillväxt den närmaste tiden.

With the Galaxy S8, Samsung has made an Android phone more desirable than an iPhone.For all its faults, for all the ways Samsung could spend less time and money on gimmicks and more on on-going software support, for all the cheaper options out there, there's no other phone we’d rather have right now.

"I'm not really a tech person at all," says artist Mat Collishaw, creator of a giant 3D-printed zoetrope and a virtual-reality recreation of the world's first major photography exhibition.Collishaw, 51, whose breakthrough piece, Bullet Hole, appeared in Damien Hirst's seminal Freeze show in 1988, explains his distrust of technology often creates a tension in his work."I like the fact that I'm not just making a protest with a charcoal drawing," he says.One of those works is Centrifugal Soul, a room-sized zoetrope covered in 3D-printed birds and flowers, currently on display at Blain Southern in London until August 20.The one-second loop, cut into 18 frames, spins at 60rpm with strobe lights flashing at just the right time to create the illusion of movement."The only way of getting that animation millimetre-accurate is to 3D print it," he says.

My first thought would be to use the space in the "about" section to explain what you do / sell.(Not just: Made in Vancouver) Also I'd work on getting more than 122 followers and you should see some web traffic I'm guessing.Actually getting sales using IG is another story but it's possible.

France is 10 days away from the first round of voting to select its next president, and there appears to be a dead heat among four major candidates.With the race achingly tight, Facebook has launched a campaign to try to limit the impact of fake news on the outcome.In a blog post, the company said it had taken action against 30,000 fake accounts.This is part of a larger public awareness campaign aimed at educating people about how to spot fake news.“We’ve found that a lot of false news is financially motivated, and as part of our work to promote an informed society, we have focused on making it very difficult for dishonest people to exploit our platform or profit financially from false news sites using Facebook,” wrote Shabnam Shaik, a manager on Facebook’s security team.Facebook has been facing a bit of a blowback following the results of the U.S. election in November, with accusations that its platform facilitated the spread of false or misleading information.Now, the company seems intent on at least making a public showing of tackling the problem in Europe before elections.Back in February, Google and Facebook announced a partnership with French newsrooms to identify and combat fake news.Facebook took out ads in several major French newspapers today to help combat fake news, according to TechCrunch.And this week, Facebook debuted similar tips in users’ news feeds.Of course, it’s difficult to know just how much impact this will have on what people are actually reading.

If you've ever grown tired with how easy it is to simply hand over cash in return for an iPhone, you might now seriously consider building your own.A new video from software engineer Scotty Allen shows how he was able to find enough spare parts to assemble a working iPhone, all by himself.Allen, who used to work in Silicon Valley, travelled to Shenzhen, China to source all the components, before assembling a fully functional 16GB iPhone 6S.Allen wrote about the whole process in a detailed post where he explains how when he was in a "dimly-lit BBQ joint" in China, someone asked whether he thought it was possible to build your own iPhone.After nine months, the engineer set out to find out, visiting the markets of Shenzen to source all the various elements needed to build one of Apple's handsets.He explains how some parts were hard to find: "In some cases, even iPhone 6s parts were a bit hard to come by (mostly the logic board).

Invites have just dropped for Microsoft’s latest press conference.Details are scant for the “Learn What’s Next” event happening May 2 in New York City, but between the title and the big MicrosoftEDU hashtag that graces the crudely colored artwork, this looks to be focused on the company’s next big play at the education sector.Back in January, the company detailed Intune for Education, a cloud-based device management system aimed at addressing one of the its chief shortcomings with regards to school.Chromebooks have seen a massive marketshare increase in US schools over the last several years thanks in part to their management system, which lets IT departments control and configure a slew of devices all at once – and makes it possible to swap devices between student without privacy or security compromises.Chrome’s other big selling point, naturally, is pricing, and the company fittingly also promised to offer up $189 Windows 10 systems aimed specifically to compete with Chromebooks.This event seems likely to serve as a continuation of that news, as Microsoft works to leverage its own offerings to provide an all-in-one education system that can compete head-to-head with Google’s increasingly popular offering.

A researcher who, with the help of neural networks, amongst others, have developed a prescription, the new Pokémons and the superhero-names have now also used this to generate raggningsrepliker of varying quality.in Order to achieve this made the neural network to train on raggningsrepliker from the network and got the network on this basis, generate their own raggningsrepliker.You can find some of these listed below and they range from basically nonsense to a part that, perhaps, you would actually be able to use.It seems as if the network used the parts of the classic raggningsrepliken on the image above even if it generated a little worse version of it.I want to get my heart with you.You are so beautiful that you know what I mean.

Säkerhetsforskare vid McAfee har hittat en ny svaghet i Microsofts ordbehandlare Word som kan användas av hackare för att ladda hem skadlig kod på sina offers datorer.Enligt forskarna finns svagheten i alla versioner av Word som ännu får support från Microsoft, vilket betyder att även en nyuppdaterad dator ligger i riskzonen.Till skillnad från de vanligaste säkerhetsluckorna i Word utgår den nyupptäckta svagheten inte från filer som använder sig av macron.Istället utgår svagheten från en falsk Word-fil som kan ladda hem skadlig kod från en server som utger sig för att vara en rtf-fil.Säkerhetsföretaget Fireeye gick även de ut i helgen med att de hittat svagheten, och precis som McAfee pekar de ut svagheter i Windowsfunktionen Object Lining and Embedding (OLE) som boven i dramat.Den funktion som används av Word för att bädda in innehåll från andra program i ordbehandlaren.

The new Minecraft Marketplace moves the UWP version of the game a bit closer to the moddable worlds familiar to classic players.The Store will provide both “skins” of existing content, as well as new Adventure Maps, where content creators can provide their own custom worlds and rules to lay out a guided story for players to play through.The Store will be micro-transaction based, paying content creators more than 35 cents for every dollar players spend on their content.Other additions to the version 1.1 Discovery Update, due later this spring, are a little less dramatic.On March 29, Microsoft also announced the new gameplay elements, including concrete and terra-cotta blocks, dyeable beds, shulker boxes, the addition of a Cartographer villager with maps, as well as evil illagers (not a typo, but a nasty sort of villager), and even llamas.iOS, Windows phones, GearVR, and others—have always faced the fundamental problem of UWP apps: They provide a consistent experience, but without the “anything goes” mod experience that defines the classic Java-based Windows app.
