Sunday, October 15, 2017

You may remember that last year, Verizon (which owns Oath, which owns TechCrunch) was punished by the FCC for injecting information into its subscribers’ traffic that allowed them to be tracked without their consent. That practice appears to be alive and well despite being disallowed in a ruling last March: companies appear to be able to request your number, location, and other details from your mobile provider quite easily.

Peak Zuckerberg: There’s a new digital magazine coming that only analyzes photos of Mark Zuckerberg – Recode

Saturday, October 14, 2017

Hwang, who lives in San Francisco and works in the tech industry, found himself routinely saving images of Facebook’s CEO to his phone, capturing what he called the “amazingly bizarre, kind of iconic” pictures that appeared in the media or on Zuckerberg’s own Facebook page. When Hwang realized some…

The sad history of digital cameras trying to imitate film – Popular Science

Friday, October 13, 2017

The digiFilm is, for the most part, a typical low-end digital camera. It has a small 1/3.2-inch sensor like you’d find in the iPhone 5, and a very limited set of manual controls. It doesn’t have a screen, but it does come with swappable “film” modules that dictate the look of the pictures you take.

Raspberry Pi laptop teaches code with modular innards – Engadget

Friday, October 13, 2017

Pi-Top has experimented with this concept before. In December 2014, the company raised $193,000 on Indiegogo for its first do-it-yourself laptop. It was a functional, but unattractive machine with a cramped keyboard and small, right-aligned trackpad. A large, horizontal panel sat between the keyboard and the hinge, taking up valuable space. (You could keep your lunch there, I suppose.) To access the Pi and modular tray underneath, you had to…

Friday, October 13, 2017

A hallmark of the new generation of trade agreements under negotiation, such as the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP), is the inclusion of chapters on e-commerce or digital trade.
