Forget processor speed, storage, memory, screen resolution, and even apps.The real test of a gadget s worth is whether or not it can run Doom, which means that the Optimus Maximus keyboard, with it s re-programmable LCD keys, is finally worth dropping £1,200 on.Look down at one of the keys on your computer s keyboard and imagine it were a tiny screen.Now imagine trying to play Doom on a display that size with a resolution of just 48x48 pixels.It would be almost impossible to see monsters coming before they were on top of you.Trying to aim and shoot them would be an even bigger challenge.

Gabriel owns Haki Creatives, a design firm that specialises in building websites for social activist groups like Black Lives Matter BLM –and for that work strangers want to kill her.When these people aren t hurling threats at the site s designer, they re hurling attacks at the BLM site itself–on 117 separate occasions in the past six months, to be precise.They re renting servers and wielding botnets, putting attack calls out on social media, and trialling different attack methods to see what sticks.And it s a story taking place in the background whenever you type in the URL of a controversial site.Searching for a provider that could handle a high-risk client, BLM site admins discovered MayFirst, a radical tech collective that specialises in supporting social justice causes such as the pro-Palestinian BDS movement, which has similarly been a target for cyberattacks.In a report published today, eQualit.ie has analyzed six months worth of attempted attacks on BLM, including a complete timeline, attack vectors, and their effectiveness, providing a glimpse behind the curtain at what it takes to keep such a site running.

Northzone har inte gått ut och kommunicerat investeringen - men Catawiki finns sedan en tid tillbaka med på riskkapitalbolagets sajt där innehaven listas.Det är bolagets nya London-baserade partner Michiel Kotting som ligger bakom investeringen, enligt Northzone.Han arbetade tidigare på riskkapitalbolaget Accel när det investerade i Catawiki - och skötte Accels investering i auktionssajten.Helt kort kan bolaget beskrivas som en holländsk branschkollega till svenska Barnaby's och Auctionet, som också säljer antikviteter på nätet men med lite olika affärsmodeller.Catawiki har enligt Crunchbase tagit in minst 95 miljoner dollar, alltså närmare 900 miljoner kronor i riskkapital.

Following the path blazed by Jaguar, Aston Martin will dig into its archives in order to resume production of the DB4 GT The iconic model was originally built between 1959 and 1963.The sought-after, lightweight version of the GT will serve as the basis for the modern-day continuation car.Offered only as a coupe, the 21st-century G.T.will boast a curvaceous body made out of thin-gauge aluminum and a tubular frame.Visually, the two cars are expected to look all but identical right down to the period-correct wire wheels.The story will be different under the skin, where the continuation model will benefit from improvements in performance, braking, safety, and handling, though Aston is keeping full details under wraps.

In an ever-escalating retail game of chess or anything you can do, I can do better, Adidas has opened up a new high-tech retail outpost in New York City.You ll recall that Nike recently did the same thing.Some things never change — these two sneaker titans have been battling it out for the hearts, minds, feet and wallets of the American consumer since the late 1970s, when Nike finally got a waffle-soled foothold into American culture.Adidas NYC is a massive multi-storied edifice with the usual industrial touches, reminiscent more of Q Branch in the latest 007 movie than the usual shoe store.Indeed, these huge retail stores are more about sending a message to the consumer than merely selling sneakers, shirts, and socks.These buildings are a mission statement of purpose, a huge multi-dimensional sales tool designed not only to get shoes on your feet, but to suck you into the brand name here lifestyle.

If you want a smartwatch, but don't want to spend too much money, the Pebble was generally a very good option.Now that Pebble is no more, getting one of its watches isn't quite so appealing.Maybe try out a Martian Notifier.Now only £24.99 at Zavvi, this cross-platform device mixes smart features with a traditional analogue watch.It's not quite as functional as most smartwatches, but if the smart stuff runs out of juice you'll still be able to tell the time.If you want something a little bit fancier, and feel like getting a curved TV, try getting this Samsung V27F39S Smart 27" Curved LED TV, which is only £199 at Currys.

It s so popular that many kombucha lovers go the homebrew route to customize their own.The problem, though, is that when brewed incorrectly it can be a serious food safety risk.Kombucha, also called mushroom tea, is a fizzy drink made with brewed black tea, sugar, and a mixed colony of live bacteria and yeast, called SCOBY Symbiotic Culture Of Bacteria and Yeast .Recipes vary, but the homemade brewing process remains essentially the same: the sugary concoction of tea and SCOBY sits and ferments for days, sometimes weeks, in the perfect environment for any microorganisms to thrive.The Risks of Getting Ill Exist, But Are Slightly ExaggeratedQuick microbiology 101: Friend or foe, many microorganisms grow rapidly with moisture, nutrients sugar, fats, and protein , temperatures between 40 and 140 degrees Fahrenheit, and pH levels between 4.5 and 10.

I år räknar bolaget med att omsätta närmare 36 miljoner och göra en vinst på 7-8 miljoner kronor.Nästa år räknar vi med att omsätta över 100 miljoner kronor , säger Johan Gawell, vd och medgrundare av Sudio, till Breakit.Det var streetlurar som Beats och Skullcandy men det saknades något som passade för folk som är lite mer preppy , säger Johan Gawell.Han beskriver Sudio som elegant i stil med Bang Olufsen, men i en lägre prisklass .En intressant detalj är att bolaget har startat nästan helt utan riskkapital.Vi har bestämt att vi vill fokusera på att växa med egna medel.

LinkedIn has added a feature it hopes will make it easier for you to network with people you re interested in talking to.Starting today, when you re messaging someone to connect with them, the professional social network will display what it calls conversation starters.We know that reaching out to reconnect, ask for advice or network for potential job opportunities can be intimidating, so we ve added personalized conversation starters in LinkedIn messaging to give members authentic ways to break the ice, the company said in a blog post.It s one thing to message someone you already have a rapport with, but what if you re in sales or trying to land that next job, or simply wish to connect with someone you idolize as a thought leader?It can be difficult to come up with something to say that s unique and not the same old Hi message that the person always receives.With conversation starters, you compose a message like normal, but before you begin, tap the new lightbulb icon located just above the keyboard.LinkedIn will then present you with a series of options that you can use, which it derived using machine learning and is related to that person s profile and history — it seems that you won t find those cookie cutter-type introductory messages here.Choose the one that you want to start with, customize it based on how you speak, and hit send.LinkedIn shared that updates around professional activity, such as when the person started their job, celebrated a work anniversary, or published an article on the social network, will be featured.

Nightclubs and pubs in Preston have been given approval to offer in-house drug testing stations, with the city centre letting clubbers have a serious person in a white coat test the substance they're about to inhale, eat, or stick up their bottoms for a quick pick me up.Similar to the testing facilities brought in to some festivals, the scheme will see booths pop up in the city centre on Friday and Saturday nights early next year, where some poor sod will stand around in the cold waiting for very drunk people to demand to know how nice their drugs are.What a lovely job that will be.The scheme will be operated by drugs charity The Loop, which already offers "forensic testing" of MDMA and its crystal form to measure its purity and therefore the severity of the gurning the taker is likely to experience.Co-director of The Loop told The Times that: "It s a very new service and some people might see it as quite radical, but it s focusing on harm reduction."Want more updates from Gizmodo UK?
