This morning, the 18-year-old hacker was fleeing his home in Paris, Kentucky, on a Southwest time machine to the future—to the digital revolution here in San Francisco.What he’s projecting on the party walls at the moment is science fiction, sleek, outrageous.Other images include genetic engineering, manufacturing processes, robotics, space stations, and animation of nano-assemblers, before he elides into the infamous porno video of Pam Anderson giving head to Tommy Lee on the motorboat, etc.That ‘story of our times’ you’re always blabbing about writing and winning a Pulitzer for—it could be out there on the dance floor right now.”He improbably points at a frumpy middle-aged couple looking lost amid the revelers.She’s standing next to a silver-haired scarecrow with a beard, whose name, she will discover shortly, is Max Stirner.

Selling goods and services on WordPress.com just got a lot easier.Yesterday, Automattic announced the launch of a Simple Payment button that allows users of the hosted blog/site/CMS service to accept Paypal payments in just a few clicks.The feature is currently available to users on the paid Premium and Business accounts, costing $8.25 and $24.92 per month, respectively.It’s worth noting that there are inherent costs of doing business with PayPal, ranging from fees, to less-than-competitive foreign exchange rates.Once a user has inserted a button, WordPress.com asks for details about the item, including the name, description, cost, and as well as a photo.It also asks for a Paypal address, where the money is sent to.

Xiaomi arguably started this whole bezel-less trend when it put out the Xiaomi Mi Mix last year, a smartphone that was meant to be more of a commercial concept design.Now, however, everybody (except Sony) seems to be jumping on that train.It could try to do one better.The Mi Mix 2, which could be announced in just two weeks, could break through the barriers with a phone that is perhaps only 1-2% bezels, as hinted by this teaser coming from the designer of the first Mi Mix himself.Unless you are a designer by trade and by heart, the name Philippe Starck (not Stark) might not ring any bells.The famed French designer help create what is perhaps the world’s first usable, commercial nearly bezel-less phone.

SFW Some of the dozens of users of Bing today spotted a lewd sand carving semi-hidden in the Microsoft search engine's front page splash photo.The snap, an overhead shot of an idyllic beach, sits behind the search bar on Bing.com.The crude anatomical artwork was clocked about three hours ago, and may have been there even longer.You can see the offending appendage in the lower right-hand corner of the picture:Our probing investigative team in the UK earlier had a stiff drink, took a close look, and verified this was legit and not a prank Photoshop.In the past hour, the Bing team got wise to the sandy schlong and edited out the free willy on its premier dot-com.

Heist movies run on two equally important elements: Elaborate plans, and believability.Logan Lucky, from director Steven Soderbergh, has plenty of the first, as a pair of brothers from West Virginia orchestrate step after obtusely convoluted step in order to successfully rob a speedway on the day of the year’s biggest race.And while we had a lot of fun taking in the scenery ahead of our Logan Lucky review, we couldn’t help but feel the movie comes up well short on plausibility.Logan Lucky might not pull off every aspect of its plan flawlessly, it gets close enough to be a lot of fun.But like Ocean’s Eleven, Logan Lucky starts to break down a bit when its characters transition from average human to superhuman, sporting knowledge of probabilities, outcomes, police protocols, random science, human nature, and psychology that would make Batman scratch his head.Ocean Eleven gets by on its fun, extremely cool characters, and Logan Lucky subsists on its fun, eccentric (but not-quite-cartoonish) cast as well.

Generally speaking, PC gamers want a wired mouse to cut back on latency as much as possible.The only problem with that is gaming on the road – if you’re playing on a gaming laptop, you may not want to carry a wired mouse as a wireless mouse is more convenient.Razer claims to have the solution to that problem in its new wireless notebook mouse, the Atheris.In announcing the device today, Razer says that the Atheris will offer “the world’s longest-lasting battery life and lag-free wireless gaming-grade performance.” With two AA batteries, the Atheris should see you through 350 hours, which is a pretty impressive claim all its own.More interesting, perhaps, is Razer’s claim of lag-free performance.The Atheris uses Razer’s own Adaptive Frequency Technology, with a connection based on a USB dongle that can be stored in the mouse itself for easy transport.

Marketing budgets now account for 12 percent of an organization’s revenues, marking the third straight year of overall budget increases, according to the Gartner 2016-2017 CMO Spend Survey.While increased budgets don’t ring true for every enterprise marketer, there is a sense of urgency around the action Gartner proposes for organizations that are making digital a priority:Action: Refine your use of attribution and marketing mix modeling to measure the impact of marketing and media efforts.What we mean by a measurement framework is that we define our business goals in the context of different user segments and different stages of a complex, multi-device, multi-touch path to purchase.For example, what are the organizational objectives for a user who would be classified as a “loyal customer” in the “retention” stage of the customer journey?What exactly do we want them to do across specific channels, and even device-level experiences?

Intel’s CEO is the latest executive to leave one of Trump’s advisory councils in the wake of the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, which many felt was inadequately addressed by the president and his administration.In a post on Policy@Intel, the company’s public policy blog, Brian Krzanich wrote that he resigned from the American Manufacturing Council on Monday “to call attention to the serious harm our divided political climate is causing to critical issues, including the serious need to address the decline of American manufacturing.”He then specifically addressed the events in Charlottesville, which led to three deaths, including that of Heather Heyer, who was among a group of people counter-protesting neo-Nazis, Ku Klux Klan members and white supremacists gathered to protest the removal of a statute of Confederate general Robert E. Lee.“I have already made clear my abhorrence at the recent hate-spawned violence in Charlottesville, and earlier today I called on all leaders to condemn the white supremacists and their ilk who marched and committed violence.I resigned because I wanted to make progress, while many in Washington seem more concerned with attacking anyone who disagrees with them.We should honor—not attack—those who have stood up for equality and other cherished American values.

This IT pilot fish works for a school system, which means some equipment is in decidedly non-IT-friendly locations."For example, I was responsible for one school that had a server rack in an area that was set to become an office," says fish."Our building crew asked me about enclosing the rack as they converted the space to an office.I said sure, as long as I can get to the rack and it stays cool."Fast forward a few weeks: I happened to walk into the new office to set up the phone and found the rack was completely enclosed with two-by-four framing and drywall -- no doors, no access.I couldn't plug in a port to a switch if I wanted to.

Motorola’s Z line of smartphones has been getting plenty of love from the Lenovo subsidiary, but the X-line has not seen a new addition since 2015.That looks to change with the upcoming Moto X4, and images obtained by Brazilian site Tudocelular seems to have confirmed what the phone will look like.Based on the images, the Moto X4 is roughly 6.3 inches by 3.15 inches, which lends credence to previous reports of the phone’s 5.2-inch 1080p resolution display.The images also show the rumored dual rear cameras, with the camera flash above the two sensors.It is unknown what the configuration will be, but the Moto Z2 Force uses one sensor for color and the other for monochrome, so Motorola could opt for a similar setup.Also unknown is what material that glossy back is made out of.

If you've ever had your parking sensors fail in the snow, imagine getting a self-driving car's myriad systems to play nice in the white stuff.Hyundai will see if it can do exactly that during the 2018 Winter Olympics, thanks to some high-def maps.Hyundai will furnish a fleet of vehicles for the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea, etnews reports.The vehicles will run on high-definition maps with a reported margin of error of less than 10 centimeters (3.9 inches).The hope is that these maps will help the cars deal with frustrating winter conditions, long the bane of modern driver-assistance systems.Hyundai is currently collecting 3D data for use in its maps, and it's believed that it should have all the data it needs "shortly."

Sony’s Xperia smartphones are, to be honest, overpriced for what they’re really worth.Sony might have noticed that, though a tad too late.It has just slashed a good chunk off the price of the Xperia XZ Premium putting it in line with the likes of the Galaxy S8, though barely a month shy of the next round of flagship smartphones, including the Galaxy Note 8, LG V30, and the new iPhones.It was second in line to get the coveted Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 that Samsung withheld from the rest of the world until the Galaxy S8 came to market.While it still has thick bezels top and bottom, it has a classic look that still has an appeal today even if quite dated.But $800 for a smartphone might be too much to ask for, especially when its closest rivals easily go below $700.
