Consumer groups warn that some internet-connected toys push advertising to children and allow strangers to converse with them.Internet-connected toys subject children to hidden marketing messages and allow strangers to converse with them from a distance, consumer rights groups say.The groups highlighted breaches of security and basic consumer rights in two toys in particular, the i-Que robot and the My Friend Cayla doll.The toys connect via Bluetooth to smartphone apps that record children speaking and transmit the recordings to a voice recognition service provider in the U.S., Nuance Communications, allowing the toys to appear to converse with the children.But, the consumer groups say, there is no authentication or pairing of the Bluetooth connections, allowing strangers within radio range of the toys to detect them and connect with them to carry on a conversation with the children directly.Furthermore, they say, voice recordings that could contain personal information are transmitted to Nuance without explicit consent, and the toys inject messages into their conversations repeatedly endorsing Disney products.

Mountain culture is a contemporary gear fetishist's dream - whether you're skiing, hiking, or launching yourself downhill in any number of dramatic ways.Yet as you trudge back to your accommodation, a glaring anachronism becomes clear: traditional design dominates in domiciles.Still, there are notable exceptions.The maverick Italian Carlo Mollino interspersed a "lively" career - racing cars, creating kinkily elaborate wooden furniture and taking smutty Polaroids - with designs for alpine buildings, including the former ski-lift base in Lago Nero.And the French resort of Flaine in the Haute Savoie stands as a concrete tribute to the Brutalism of Marcel Breuer.The following four projects offer a fresh take on the age-old mountain cabin, re-interpreting traditional forms to create audacious alpine modernism for the truly adventurous.
Grand Tour Episode 3 is out today - and features Clarkson, Hammond and May touring across Northern Italy in something approximating the historical "Grand Tour".Perhaps more so than Top Gear, the show tends to walk or should that be drive?a fine line between reality and fiction - and this film was no different.At one point in the show Clarkson attempts to lose Hammond and his American muscle car by sending out a tweet as they headed into the city of Vicenza.And, right on cue, there are hundreds of people there waiting for him, blocking his path.A quick look through Clarkson's tweets reveals that the stunt was set up at least a day in advance.
EnlargeMambembe Arts & Crafts on FlickrWhen 20-year-old Lan Cai was in a car crash this summer, it was a bad situation.Unsure about how to navigate her car insurance and prove damages, she reached out for legal help.The help she got, Cai said, was less than satisfactory.Lawyers from the Tuan A. Khuu law firm ignored her contacts, and at one point they came into her bedroom while Cai was sleeping in her underwear."If you do not remove the post from Facebook and any other social media sites, my office will have no choice but to file suit," he told her, according to a report in the Houston Press on the saga.
Financing will be used to scale the service to 10 cities in 2017 and continue building a best-in-class home buying and selling experience SAN FRANCISCO– BUSINESS WIRE –December 2, 2016– Opendoor announces the closing of its $210M Series D led by Jeff Crowe at Norwest Venture Partners with participation from NEA and existing investors.Opendoor, the consumer marketplace for homes, will use the capital to expand on its mission of simplifying the home buying and selling process and scale the service to 10 cities in 2017.Currently operating in Phoenix and Dallas Fort-Worth, the company is transacting over $60M in home volume each month and has served over 4000 homeowners since launching two years ago.For sellers, Opendoor offers a simple, near-instant online sale, allowing homeowners to close on their timeline and skip repairs, open houses and months of uncertainty.Patricia Smith was dreading the traditional home sale process and recently used Opendoor to sell her three bedroom house in Mesa, Arizona.Three couples I know sold their homes through Opendoor but it sounded too good to be true.
This morning, Virgin Media created history.The company has invented the TellyTablet, a device that might be described as a 14-inch tablet with a HD display and a pair of USB ports.Actually, that s exactly what it is.Read More: Virgin Media Launches 4K Virgin TV V6 BoxAccording to the company, it brings customers the flexibility to watch the shows they love with the same up close viewing experience as a 50 television – whether that s in the kitchen, the bedroom or side-by-side with the big screen in their living room.The Android Marshmallow-running handset naturally comes pre-loaded with Virgin software, including the Virgin TV Anywhere app, which lets you watch Virgin TV V6 box recordings on the go.
The whole point of the original Game Boy was to make portable gaming possible, but today that big chunk of plastic seems far from the ultramobile device it was intended to be.To check off that box in 2016, you need to get really small — like the entirely functioning Game Boy key ring for instance.Created by software engineering manager and bedroom hacker Jeroen Domburg, the supermicro Game Boy is about the size of your top thumb knuckle and can play a variety of titles in full color, with the original control schemes.It s the love child of Domburg s mad genius, a 3D printer, an ESP-32 micro-controller, and a full-color OLED display that measures less than an inch diagonally.The ESP-32 is a reasonably powerful little chip, with dual cores operating at 240Hz apiece, twinned with 512KB of onboard RAM.It also natively supports Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, so connectivity isn t a problem for this small device.
In addition to an across-the-board and not especially generous 12 percent discount, the company put up a number of oddly-named 'doorbuster' deals which were to go live at specific times during the day.One of the most tempting of these was a plain vanilla Inspiron laptop, dangled in front of lunchtime bargains surfers at a very attractive £199 price.On any ordinary shopping day, this two-tonne price buys a Chromebook or feeble Celeron netbook, but today it could secure a proper 15.6" laptop with i3 processor, 8GB of RAM and a terabyte of hard drive.What followed was 80 minutes of Nietzschean misery as I attempted to navigate the labyrinthine web layers between 'add to basket' and 'order completed'.I thought perhaps it was me, or my creaky old existing laptop which is, of course, the reason I wanted a new one .There is no shortcut to the checkout here, like the half-hidden alleyway in Ikea that cuts out all the bedroom and bathroom stuff.

In the world of American privacy law, one Supreme Court decision casts a long shadow over all others: Katz v. United States.In that decision, which was handed down in December 1967, the court famously held that the Fourth Amendment protects people rather than places.Katz countermanded a previous Supreme Court ruling from 1928, which required a physical trespass to prove a Fourth Amendment violation.In Katz, because the FBI placed secret microphones without a warrant on a Los Angeles phone booth to investigate Charles Katz illegal gambling, the Supreme Court reversed a lower court s decision.The court found that a telephone booth was, in fact, a place like a bedroom where a person has a reasonable expectation of privacy.Since then, Katz has been used as a stepping stone for other important legal ideas, including the third-party doctrine, which legitimized the National Security Agency metadata program, among other things.

Designed by New York architecture firm SHoP, the Brooklyn residential tower consists of 363 pre-fab apartments that stack like Tetris blocks into a 32-story building.The results of that experiment look to be mixed.When construction on 461 Dean began in 2012, developer Forest City Ratner said the structure would be ready 18 months sooner and cost 20 percent less than a conventional tower, making its units more affordable.Studios will start at $559 a month, one-bedrooms at $600 a month, and two-bedrooms at $727 a month—in a neighborhood where the median rent on a one-bedroom is $2,700.The building took more time and money to build than originally promised.If modular buildings like 461 Dean are going to help stem the rise of housing prices, designers and developers will need to work out some kinks first.
