You will get hands on help from our friendly engineers on how to optimize your Android app for Chromebooks.And developers might be able to take advantage of the Play Store s significantly more mature deployment features, including A/B testing, staged app rollouts, developer replies, and others.Last month, eagle-eyed Reddit user TheWiseYoda spied a setting in an early release of Chrome OS — version 51 in the Developer Channel — that referenced a way to enable Android Apps on Chromebook devices.The groundwork for the migration has long been laid.Later that year, Google began letting publishers seed Android apps to seed users, but in a limited fashion — installs were restricted to the Chrome Web Store.Last year, the Wall Street Journal reported that Google had been working for two years to merge Chrome OS and Android, and that it planned to launch the result — a new, unified operating system that runs on PCs — in 2017.
Nokia is back in the mobile phone business, after a fashion.It has granted HMD Global an exclusive, 10-year license to the famous brand, allowing the Finnish startup to sell Nokia mobile phones and tablets.Meanwhile Microsoft, which bought Nokia's mobile phone activities in 2013, is finally getting out of the feature-phone business, selling its remaining interests in the Nokia brand and its Vietnamese phone factory to HMD and to FIH, a subsidiary of contract manufacturing giant Foxconn, for around US$350 million.Fans of the Lumia brand should still see software updates, but they may not see any new hardware: Microsoft merely said it would "support Lumia phones such as the Lumia 650, Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL," without talking of developing new models.However, its roundabout return to the mobile phone market was clearly telegraphed.As early as 2014 it dipped a toe back into the mobile market with the release of the Nokia-branded N1 tablet, manufactured under license by Foxconn, the manufacturing partner of HMD.
It matches the earlier leaked photos see below top to bottom aside from colour scheme, which is... a bit odd.Blass identifies it as gold but opts to call it "desert camo" instead, and we'd say it's more beige than we usually like in a gadget.Still no word on a release date or pricing for the likely AT exclusive in the States.If these photos leaked out of Vietnam are any indication, Samsung wants the Galaxy S7 Active to look more comfortable in a battlefield than a fashion show - unlike the standard Galaxy S7.Water and dust resistance were collectively one of the big enhancements for the Galaxy S7 this year, and that that same IP68 rating is reportedly maintained on the Active model, unsurprisingly.Leaks suggest the Galaxy S7 Active will have much the same specs as the Galaxy S7 in the States, including the Snapdragon 820 processor and 4GB RAM, plus the Quad HD display.
But the company s voice platform is fast, alarmingly accurate, and likely baked into tons of products we interact with in some form or another.MindMeld was founded in 2011 and is backed by over $15 million in funding.The company shows example after example of how voice beats just about every other input for generating a response, and even showed off its chops against incumbent giants like the Apple TV voice search.I caught up with CEO Tim Tuttle to see how the company fits into the broader scheme of AI giants e.g., IBM Waton, Amazon Echo and NLP-based startups and to get a view at where we might be headed.We re currently engaged with companies in video, music, quick service restaurants, fashion retailing, IoT, and other categories.There is definitely much greater awareness of AI based conversational interfaces among our target customers than there was even six months ago, Tuttle told me.That s the power of MindMeld s underlying tech — it s not just about powering conversational bots on Facebook Messenger and other messaging platforms the company released its bot platform yesterday, as well .Given the dramatic shift in user behavior we are seeing, this will probably change over the next year.Tuttle, like many others in the media, is particularly unimpressed by the range of bots out there in the wild.

By the end of the 90-minute special, it s really not clear what Geraldo believes is going on within the Satanic underground, or if he even believes it exists at all.Set in Charleston, South Carolina, Exorcism introduces Abby, a working-class loner who s befriended maybe even rescued by Gretchen, a too-sheltered rich kid who bonds with Abby during a disastrous early- 80s birthday party.A few years later, the now-teenaged chums find their long-time bond challenged after a one-off acid trip, during which Gretchen disappears into darkened woods.The corpse in question is that of a largely average high-school jock whose suicide upends a rural Pennsylvania town—but whose death also brings together the unadventurous Hannah with Lacey, a class-cutting, chain-smoking, Kurt Cobain-obsessed alternakid who draws Hannah out of her happily PG existence and into a dizzying spree-turned-spiral of drugs, parties and, eventually, some blood-drenched, semi-Satanic antics.It s a decision that leads to Lacey being accused of Satanic tendencies, and that finally brings all three girls, guided by sinister motivations, to the same woods where their former classmate turned up dead.Like Exorcism s Abby and Gretchen, Fire s Lacey and Hannah are outsiders whose relationship flourishes in an environment of latchkey laissez faire-ness and shenanigans-inspiring boredom.
Pornhub — the porn site that recently ruined the taco emoji for you — today announced its solution to the growing obesity epidemic: BangFit.Today, due to our hectic work schedules and lack of motivation, many of us do not receive regular amounts of physical activity and lead sedentary lifestyles, said Corey Price, VP Pornhub.Here at Pornhub, we know from experience that there s one activity people are always motivated to do and one for which they are never too busy.That s why we came up with BangFit, which gamifies sex and encourages users to pump while they hump.From there, BangFit monitors your activity and awards you a performance rating — like you re the gymnastiest or you re fit as fuck — in typical Pornhub fashion.Video is NSFW cartoon sex — giggity .
While much of today's Google IO keynote was spent on Google Home, the Mountain View company's answer to the Amazon Echo, there was a brief moment where they talked about the future of Android TV.Now entering its third year of life, Android TV will soon add picture-in-picture, live TV DVR and support for high dynamic range HDR content to its repertoire of tricks.The ability to multi-task has always been something Google products have excelled at, so it's perhaps somewhat unsurprising that it became a priority for its Android TV operating system.That news came by way of GPU giant, Nvidia.In a press release sent to techradar, Nvidia says that it has plans to leverage the technology in its Nvidia Shield and will be the first streaming video device to support the technology.Finally, Google announced that it would add several new channels to Android TV, including apps for CNN, Comedy Central, MTV, Freeform, Nickelodeon, Spotify, STARZ, WATCH ABC, WATCH Disney Channel, WATCH Disney Junior and ESPN.
Tattoo culture has pretty much gone mainstream.Tattooing is the sixth fastest growing market in the retail industry with about 30% of Americans getting them now.Back in February we reported that the Copenhagen-based startup had raised $2.5 million from a number of high-profile investors including AOL s Jimmy Maymann President of AOL Content and Consumer Brands , Tom Ryan CEO, Pluto TV , Jake Nickell CEO, Threadless , Rene Rechtman International President, Maker Studios and some other executives.I wonder what Jimmy has…It s now adding an app to its arsenal, on iOS and Android, which carries thousands of galleries, user profiles and other things to attract tattoo collectors and artists.It features Tattoo celebrities like Mike Rubendall, Megan Massacre and Henning Jørgensen; new designs, fashion styles, and artists.Entrepreneurs Johan Plenge and Mik Thobo-Carlsen launched Tattoodo in Copenhagen in 2013 and were later joined by world-famous tattoo artist Ami James.
Wearables have the potential to change consumer and business technology, but how much do you know about them?Wearable technology has emerged from the darkened room of enthusiasts to the mainstream in recent years, with gadgets like the Apple Watch and Moto 360 becoming not just accessories, but fashion items too.Many of the biggest names in technology are working on smartwatches, smart glasses and smart clothing to help us lead healthier and more productive lives – and to create new categories of products to sell to consumers and businesses as smartphone adoption rises.Apple Watch 1 897x1000 Wearables are fast becoming the most creative area of technology, but there are serious technical issues to solve too, such as connectivity, functionality and privacy.The future of wearables seems to be only limited by the imagination.Maybe in the future we ll all wear networked clothing and browse the internet by moving our eyes?
In case you haven t seen the 2013 sci-fi movie, it s a disturbing love story about a regular guy falling for a voice-based operating system.And while Google is far from announcing a computer OS that s able to respond via voice to all your queries and help out with day to day chores in intuitive ways in human-like fashion, it s certainly laying the foundation for such a future.DON T MISS: 5 Android N features you won t find on any iPhoneThe Assistant APIs will let Android app developers take advantage of the various other APIs that tell a phone where you are, what you re doing, and what s around you to build automatic actions on your smartphone that happen without requiring input from the user.The apps would only wake up and link to each other when needed, and Google s APIs would make sure that the phone is running smoothly, and that computational power and battery is saved.For example, real estate app Trulia has been working with the Awareness API to tailor its notifications so that they only show up on the screen in certain conditions.A user might receive a reminder about an open house only when he or she is in the neighborhood, if he or she is walking rather than driving or running, and if it s sunny outside.
I was talking with some people recently about self-driving cars and how one day you'll be able to pull your phone out of your pocket and order a taxi, and it'll show up just like an Uber car, only without the driver in fact, Uber's working hard to ditch all of its human drivers .We adjust our habits or actions in light of both strangers' awareness and our own awareness of their awareness...even if we don't realize we're doing so.Of course, these future autonomous taxis will probably have more than a couple varieties of deterrents: perhaps a security camera that monitors everything you do, the threat of paying handsomely for any damage you're proven to have caused, and the public shame of being blacklisted from a particularly popular mode of transportation.Who cares about potentially paying damages if you're registered with a limited-funds prepaid credit card and under a fake name?If cartoonish printed eyes on a sign can deter littering, can a pair of life-like eyes somewhere inside an autonomous car keep bored or otherwise destructive people in check?Or, in a less draconian fashion, manufacturers may choose to distract their riders into peaceful obedience with on-board VR headsets and built-in movie projectors.
The RX 350 comes from a long and distinguished line of premium people movers that have served as the Lexus linchpin in its gradual colonization of U.S. suburban driveways since it first appeared on the scene in the late 1990s.The redesigned 2016 Lexus RX 350 highlights everything that's made the SUV such a perennial contender while introducing a few new tricks to keep the faithful interested and help fend off the growing tide of competitors that have crowded into the luxury people mover market.Inside, the RX features an exquisitely-detailed, leather-wrapped cabin that feels every bit the equal of its price tag which ranges from just under $42,000 all the way up to $49,000 for the F Sport edition , along with a respectable amount of passenger room front and rear and a helpful, although not class-leading 56.3 cubic feet of total cargo space.Fuel mileage for the heavier MDX is listed at one mile per gallon less for each respective measure.Standard with the Audi is a 2.0-liter, 220 horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder engine, but you can also order supercharged 272 horsepower 3.0-liter V6 if you crave additional performance.It's also a looker, with fashion-forward design that finally separates it from its Ford Edge platform-mate, and it's packed with high-tech features.

Participants were tasked with getting from A to B while MRI scans of their brain were taken.These scans showed which parts of the brain are involved in planning and making decisions.The group, which included Google DeepMind CEO Demis Hassabis, concluded that the brain splits the task of completing a journey into different jobs, with different parts of the brain handling different elements of the task.Parts of the cortex, for example, showed more activity when the participant had to change lines, while other parts of the brain appeared "more excited" as the participant got closer to the final destination.Studying the human brain like this can help companies like Google DeepMind to make advances in the field of artificial intelligence.Developers can create AIs that can calculate all the possible consequences of a single action but humans have to create and execute a plan, the paper states.We mentally invent different "layers" to organise our actions and then think about the bigger picture rather than individual steps, according to the study."We're interested in trying to find machine-learning solutions to difficult tasks and real-life problems," said Google DeepMind scientist Jan Balaguer, who is also completing a PhD at Oxford University, in a statement."In machine learning, having a hierarchical representation for decision making might be helpful or harmful depending on whether you choose the right hierarchy to implement in the first place."As one might expect, humans took longer to plan a journey with several line changes than they did to plan journeys that involved a high number of station stops on the same line.DeepMind, which employs around 250 people in King's Cross, is famous for creating an AI agent called AlphaGo that successfully took on the best player in the world at ancient Chinese board game Go last month.But the company, which Google acquired for a reported £400 million in January 2014, has a wide range of other projects on the go that it doesn't reveal to the public, including a little-known fashion website called KITSEE that was killed off around the time of the Google acquisition.DeepMind is also looking at how its technology can be applied in healthcare, announcing a partnership with the NHS in February that has proved to be controversial due to an extensive data-sharing agreement.NOW WATCH: This smart earpiece translates languages as they are spokenLoading video...
Ivy Ross is the head of Project Aura, Google's secretive wearables branch, but she took an unusual path to become a tech executive.Over the past two decades, Ross' career has included stints in companies ranging from Mattel to Gap Inc., and before that she was an acclaimed jewelry designer with work in the world's foremost museums.In her commencement address at the Fashion Institute of Technology FIT on Thursday, Ross told the new graduates that she was grateful her unorthodox career path taught her fundamental truths.Business Insider caught up with Ross after her speech to distill her story into her top lessons for people still in the early stages of their careers.'Get your ego out of the way so that your heart can be your operating system'Ross began her career designing jewelry using nontraditional metals and innovative techniques.By the time she was 28, in 1983, she had her work in the permanent collections of 12 museums — including the Smithsonian in Washington DC, the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, and the Montreal Visual Arts Center — and was the recipient of a De Beers Diamonds International Award.After the 12th museum, her excitement eventually faded.And then I was like, 'Oh my God, if this is what that is, then I'm so glad I understand that now,'" she said.With her ego's craving satisfied, she could then focus on contributing her talents to teams and taking joy in creating things with others, she explained, which in turn brought more satisfaction.Never live according to 5-year plansRoss said she would be incapable of predicting five years ago that she would be heading up a secret Google project, and she prefers it that way.It was actually her early and unexpected success as a designer in her 20s that allowed her to come to the Zen-like realization that "there isn't an end game."I think the ideal career path idea will not get you to the right place," she explained."The idea of tapping into who you are, the essence, will.NOW WATCH: 'Shark Tank' star Daymond John reveals the advantages of being brokeLoading video...
Apple s annual WWDC event is just a few weeks away and that means we ll soon know a lot more about the next major updates for iOS and OS X.As has been the case for the last few years, the company is expected to continue porting over and unifying experiences between its desktop and mobile platforms, and that may include Siri and Touch ID support on OS X.Now, a report from MacRumors claims that Apple could be integrating an auto-unlock feature into OS X 10.12 that would allow an iPhone to unlock a Mac when the two are in close proximity of one another.The feature is said to use Bluetooth LE for connectivity and would work in a similar fashion to how the iPhone is able to bypass the passcode restriction on a connected Apple Watch.Also rumored for OS X s fall update is Apple Pay support for web browsers, and according to the report, the feature could work with Touch ID on the iPhone to authenticate purchases made on the Mac, allowing users to sidestep the use of passwords.Apple has already confirmed that the 27th edition of its Worldwide Developers Conference WWDC will be taking place in San Francisco on starting June 13 through June 17, so it won't be long before we learn what the company has in store.

The Motorola Razr flip phone reminds us of simpler times when gossip ruled the high school hallways; when jocks, rockers and brooding emo kids vied for the attentions of the prom queens who only had time for their elegant fashion statement of a phone.Of course, none of that happened to us, but it appears the Lenovo-owned Motorola or is it just Moto these days?Effectively, that s a long winded and frivolous way forgive us, it s Friday afternoon of saying Moto has teased a new version of the Razr may be launched on June 9.See also: Moto X Play reviewWithin the video itself Moto depicts the aforementioned high schoolers who now probably have about 8 kids each and work jobs they hate enjoying the previous versions of the flip-phone, which last enjoyed a launch in 2002.Will it help Moto recapture it s American glory days, before it was owned by a Chinese computer firm?Was it ever any more than a fashion statement anyway?
