Originally released way back in 1970, the unique sound of the Minimoog analog synthesizer means the hardware is still in demand today.But since Moog stopped producing the synths back in 1981, they re incredibly rare and expensive now—unless you re happy to add this sofa equivalent to your studio.The sofa s outer shell is made from washing machine-safe canvas that s been printed with an oversized Minimoog design using eco-friendly inks.It s filled with polystyrene beads, which means that without a frame it probably feels more like plunking down on a bean bag chair instead of a sofa—but that s still a great place to take a nap.Pricing is around $420 so it s definitely more expensive than a nondescript bean bag chair.If you still want to make music with it, just go download Moog s new $30 synthesizer app and curl up with your smartphone.

Wheeler made the comments on stage in a Q with C-SPAN Senior Executive Producer Peter Slen, who asked about Wheeler's TV service.Wheeler may be a rarity, as Comcast routinely posts some of the worst customer satisfaction scores in the lowest-rated industry measured by the American Customer Satisfaction Index ACSI .NCTA CEO Michael Powell blasted Wheeler's FCC in a speech at the conference Monday, saying the agency has unleashed a "relentless regulatory assault" on the cable industry without provocation and "without any compelling evidence of harm to consumers or competitors."Powell had criticized a Wheeler proposal designed to make it easier for consumers to watch cable TV channels without renting set-top boxes from cable providers."Those who did not want things to change used government to maintain the status quo to the detriment of consumers, and so the philosophy that I developed coming out of the NCTA is that the job of government is to promote competition and to let consumers enjoy the benefits of that—with the full understanding that those who are the incumbents never like change," Wheeler said today.Wheeler pointed out that he isn't always trying to impose more regulations on cable companies.

US cloud giant Salesforce is expanding its UK headquarters in one of London's tallest skyscrapers.The San Francisco enterprise software company, which has a market cap of $77 billion £52.7 billion , announced the office expansion on Thursday at its largest customer event outside the US, alongside several other investments into the UK.The expansion will see Salesforce go from occupying four floors at 110 Bishopsgate to 10 floors, a Salesforce spokeswoman told Business Insider, adding that some floors are still under construction.Salesforce has not disclosed which floors it is taking or when they will be fully occupied.Salesforce tried and failed to officially rename the building— widely known to Londoners as Heron Tower — after itself in 2014.The company signed a 15-year naming rights deal with Heron International in May 2014 but City of London council members voted in September 2014 in favour of naming the skyscraper "110 Bishopsgate," after the building's street address.Several of the building's existing tenants, including failed startup Powa Technologies, were unhappy over the proposed Salesforce rebranding.At the time of the name change, Ant Sharp, Powa Technologies deputy chair, reportedly said it was "at best rude and at worse is contrary to the law and leases we signed."Despite not gaining official naming rights, Salesforce and Heron International still refer to the building as Salesforce Tower."NOW WATCH: This smart earpiece translates languages as they are spokenLoading video...

The companies have teamed up on a smart jacket for bicyclists that will allow wearers to control their smartphones using sensors woven into the cuff.The Commuter smart jacket is a key step for wearable technology because it's more stylish and less obtrusive than a smartwatch.Remove it, and the jacket looks like a normal piece of clothing.The jacket is designed to be hung up, crumpled up and tossed in a bag, thrown over a chair, and even put through a washing machine, said Levi's Vice President Paul Dillinger.There's still a question of price, though.The company is working with commercial uniform maker Cintas to bring Jacquard into the enterprise as well.
On Thursday, James Clapper, the Director of National Intelligence, signed a new policy that will allow government investigators to review a person s public social media accounts before deciding whether to issue a security clearance.While this is a limited change—it will likely be handled through an automated search that will only find public postings from accounts that are explicitly tied to the individual under review—it is a significant step into the 21st century, moving beyond a time when investigators focused largely on analog information collection in an increasingly digital era of communications and sharing.During a hearing to review the new decision, Rep. Mark Meadows R-NC , chair of the House Oversight and Government Reform committee s subcommittee on government operations, noted that what a person says and does on social media can often give a better insight on who they really are.Over the last decade, Americans have become increasingly comfortable and adept at sharing general and intimate details alike about their lives and families on social media, whether it be pictures on Instagram, political opinions on Twitter, resumes on LinkedIn, or birth dates, cat memes and favorite foods on Facebook.At the same time, mistakenly believing that they were protected by the distance and anonymity suggested by the internet, Americans have developed an acute habit of blithely sharing insults and threats online without any regard for the consequences.It s professionally valuable.

A new batch of ominous warnings about job-killing robots just arrived from the usual suspects, very clever, credentialed, accomplished people mingling at a glamourous watering-hole: in this case, the Milken Institute's Global Conference in Beverly Hills, California.These warnings tend to follow a predictable script: sufficiently urgent to get attention, but fuzzy enough to stop short of alarming.Warnings about the impact of robotics on people s jobs almost always have a temporizing quality: for example, at this conference robots are capable of taking over low-skill document management or Wall Street spreadsheet jockeys specialized jobs, yet aren t at the point of actually eliminating broad job categories.It is old school, beginning as a one-way transfer of data from computer green screens via the terminal s memory.It s also often an interface of last resort for an old school problem, the challenges organizations face in linking legacy systems with new applications, including lack of legacy documentation, source code and lost skillsets.This use is what many people are referring to when they speak about swivel-chair automation.Related Article: Buying In the Cloud: How Cloud Technology is Revolutionizing the Retail IndustryRPA PerceptionBut moving to web-scraping technology still left RPA with two major limitations, both of which reinforced the perception this robotic technology could only play a limited role, with limited scope, in business process automation.Limited Role in Process AutomationWhile web-scraping is highly effective, it customarily takes place at the task level while employees typically operate at both the task and activity level.The answer would appear to be yes; according to the Everest Group, 78 percent of GICs have either implemented RPA or are actively planning pilots.Related Article: When Tech Meets Pets: How Technology Is Serving Man's Best FriendWhat About AI & Cognitive, etc.?But what of the exotic technologies so many thought leaders are waiting for: AI, cognitive, machine learning?The answer is that they re important and will broaden RPA s footprint in ways that are hard to fully envision.
Tech companies could abandon the UK if it leaves the European Union, digital economy minister Ed Vaizey warned on Thursday.Vaizey told Business Insider he is concerned that tech companies of all shapes and sizes could leave for other European nations if a Brexit occurs.Speaking in an exclusive interview, Vaizey said: "With countries like France and Germany very focused on tech, and the reputation of some of the Baltic states, tech will have plenty of homes to go to within the European Union if we were to leave.There are also thousands of tech startups across the nation, particularly in London, that employ large workforces between them.Vaizey believes that tech companies get better access to talented workers and capital by being a part of the EU.It would make it a less attractive place for investors to come to invest in tech companies and I think they might well start to look at opportunities in other countries," said Vaizey.They also come after Tech City UK, a government-funded organisation that aims to support the UK tech sector, found that seven out of 10 tech founders and investors want the UK to remain within the EU.Microsoft has also come out against a Brexit, saying Britain's membership in the EU makes it one of the most attractive places for Microsoft to make investments.Tech City UK is concerned that big commitments to the UK – such as Google s Kings Cross campus – may not materialise in future, if London is no longer seen as a gateway to the EU market.Eileen Burbidge, partner at Passion Capital and Chair of Tech City UK, said in a statement: "London is the biggest tech centre in Europe and attracts the brightest and best talent.Would companies move their headquarters?The chances are that it would increase everyone s costs and lead to slower growth in the overall UK economy from London and the regions alike, potentially for years to come.

Hoping to finally put the controversy to bed, Facebook announced Monday that an internal investigation has revealed no evidence of systematic political bias in the selection or prominence of stories included in the Trending Topics feature.However, it admitted in a statement that its investigation could not fully exclude the possibility of isolated improper actions or unintentional bias in the implementation of our guidelines or policies.With that in mind, Facebook said it would minimize risk where human judgment is involved by carrying out refresher training for all reviewers and implementing additional controls and oversight around the review team.Glenn Beck, for one, seemed satisfied that Facebook wasn t wilfully engaging in any dubious practices regarding its Trending Topics feature.The controversy also caught the attention of Senator John Thune, chair of the Senate Commerce Committee, who voiced concern over the allegations.However, following a recent meeting with a Facebook executive, Thune seemed broadly satisfied with the company s actions.
