The word on the street was that Google was pursuing an ad blocker for its Chrome browser.While even rivals were glad to give Google some credit for wanting to clean up the web, conspiracy theories abounded about Google’s other, hidden motives.The most obvious theory is that Google’s ad block move is ultimately about steering more dollars to its ad business, primarily driven by its (ad block-safe) text-based search ads.“I understand they want to be a good citizen on the web.If they’re reducing the types of ads that can be shown, the type they want to block is the stuff they don’t do anyway.”Google already pays the popular ad blocking software AdblockPlus to whitelist Google’s sites as part of ABP’s “Acceptable Ads” program.

If you're in North American and planning a new computing project, you have now a more powerful option.North American makers and hobbyists take note: There is another single-board computer option in town.Your options for building your own computing device just increased by one, and this time it’s being offered by a major consumer electronics company.Specifically, Asus has been offering its Tinker Board in the U.K. and throughout Europe since early 2017 to compete directly with other options such as the Raspberry Pi.Now, it is available in North America from leading retailers and its shipping at a competitive price, according to Tom’s Hardware.The Asus Tinker Board is based on a quad-core Rockchip RK3288 system-on-chip (SoC) operating at up to 1.8GHz and utilizing Mali-T764 GPU, which is the same SoC that’s used in some Chromebooks.

Under Facebooks F8-konferens 2015 berättade Marc Zuckerberg att företagets chattapplikation Messenger skulle bli framtidens kundtjänst-verktyg, och under årets upplaga av konferensen fick vi en inblick i vad han menade med det.För under namnet Messenger Platform 2.0 visades en rad nya funktioner upp som alla riktade sig mot företag som vill nå sina kunder på nya sätt.Den kanske största nyheten är fliken Discovery som Facebook själva liknar vid Gula sidorna.En flik som ska kunna användas för att nå ut till konsumenterna med sina tjänster eller erbjudanden.”Vi kopplar samman telefonkatalogen, folkets katalog, med gula sidorna som är företagens katalog”, säger Messengers produktchef Stan Chudnovsky till sajten Engadget.I Discovery-vyn kan användaren kommunicera direkt med företagen eller med deras chattbottar, som kan svara på enklare frågor eller hålla reda på information som beställningar och leveranser.

We’re used to hearing about new banks that have signed on to support Android Pay as Google ever-expands its mobile purchasing system.But an announcement this morning is looking to add even more value.Now you’ll be able to use Android Pay even if you don’t have a bank or credit card to add to your wallet.Google has announced a partnership with PayPal that allows you to use your account to buy things anywhere Android Pay is accepted.While PayPal users have long been able to access their accounts in the real world via PayPal Credit, the new Android Pay integration will open up mobile contactless payments to a wide array of people, allowing them to use the balances to pay for things at McDonalds or Wal-Mart.The partnership is a boon for Android Pay, which is competing against Apple Pay, Samsung Pay, and other store-based services for dominance.

Twitter is a weird social network, and while there are plenty of tools for muting an account or keyword entirely, Supermute takes a different approach.Enter a keyword or phrase into Supermute, and it then mutes any account with that phrase for a set duration of time.The idea here is that while Twitter’s mute function is useful, the permanence of it can be frustrating since you have to go back in and manually unmute someone.Supermute allows you to set up a time frame.So, for example, if you’re sick of my (and everyone else’s) idiotic tweets about Apple during their press conferences, you can set up Supermute to mute anyone who says “Apple” for the next six hours.It’s super handy for avoiding spoilers, if you’re sick of politics, or whatever else.

Have you ever taken a cell phone video that would have been great if it wasn’t so shaky?It was the perfect moment and you thought you’d nailed it but you failed it because there was too much shakin' goin' on.Google Photos has just received an upgrade that takes a lot of the shake out of shaky videos.Android Police reported that the placeholder they found in the Photos APK last August has been replaced with true video stabilization.Photos is now able to take a prerecorded shaky video and smooth it out.The end result isn’t perfect but it’s a lot better than what you had before.

While the rest of the world agonizes over low-hanging fruit such as catastrophic climate change, whether Russia now runs the U.S., or if the liberal media is out to assassinate our president (figuratively one presumes), let’s turn our attention to the really important question of our age.Despite three decades of research, evidence has failed to meaningfully connect video games to real problems in children.As a senator in 2005, Clinton coauthored federal legislation to criminalize the sale of violent video games to minors.But what about Trump whose battles with news media haven’t exactly cast him as the avatar of free speech?The worst video game news on the Trump front comes from one of Trump’s tweets from 2012 following the awful Sandy Hook shooting in which a 20-year-old male killed numerous children and elementary school personnel as well as his mother and himself.Soon after, Trump tweeted “Video game violence & glorification must be stopped – it is creating monsters!” But in all fairness Trump was hardly the only person to blame video games.

Another day, another batch of iPhone 8 rumors.Last month, a report suggested Apple might try to use TouchID on the rear of the device, instead of the under-screen solution that has long been rumored.Now iDrop News – whose source is someone who allegedly “spoke with a Foxconn employee” – believes Apple is actually still testing both ideas.Obviously, hiding TouchID under the display is the more interesting application, but it seems like the technology has proven tricky to implement – Samsung allegedly tried to do the same with the S8, but then gave up at the last minute.But there’s more to it than Touch ID.The rumored prototype also suggests the phone will have an “invisible” camera under the display, which would be pretty awesome indeed.

And in the sci-fi thriller Void Star, things are further complicated by the fact that AI’s “thoughts” are actually glyphs, or waves of data, that only make sense to people with special cranial implants connected to the net.The elegant, if cerebral, examination of how both technology and humans process information is just one of many ideas explored in Void Star, out today.That’s no surprise, considering that author Zachary Mason has spent the past two decades working on problems of computational linguistics.In his day job in Silicon Valley, Mason helps machines get smarter—but on the side, he writes speculative fiction about what happens when the machines becomes incomprehensibly smart, imagining the role of AI in a world consumed by climate change and inequality.After getting a PhD in computer science and artificial intelligence, he tried to figure it out through machine learning.The novel follows the stories of three people who have neural implants that allow them to access all their memories permanently: Irina, who translates glyphs for humans; Thales, a Brazilian political scion; and Akemi, an aspiring actress.

Since well before the March launch of the Nintendo Switch, observers have been wondering whether the system would get robust software support from major third-party publishers or if it would instead have to lean more heavily on Nintendo exclusives and games from smaller independent developers.Now, new comments from Overwatch director Jeff Kaplan seem to confirm how porting modern games to such low-powered hardware could be a difficult bottleneck to get through.In a Reddit AMA thread last month, Kaplan vaguely said that "getting [Overwatch] on the Switch is very challenging for us, but we're always open-minded about exploring possible platforms."In a follow-up interview with the UK's Express newspaper published today, Kaplan elaborated."I think the problem is we've really targeted our min spec in a way that we would have to revisit performance and how to get on that platform," he said.That's a striking admission, especially considering that the nearly year-old Overwatch doesn't exactly require a top-of-the-line PC to play; Blizzard asks for an Intel Core i3 processor and GTX 460 or better at a minimum.
