The whiteboards of tomorrow: 3 interactive displays Print E-mail
Tuesday, 09 February 2016
A company meeting is more than just one person talking to a group. It can also include PowerPoint presentations, videos and, very often, a whiteboard on which attendees can map out lists and create charts and notes. Within the last few years, the plain whiteboard has given way to more complex and capable tools. These large, technologically sophisticated interactive displays can be written on using a digital marker, a stylus or a finger. Users can also (depending on the display) pull up a presentation, website, video or company document; save or email whatever has been written on the display; and allow remote attendees to view the presentations (or even participate) using their own computers or mobile...

Sure Genomics wants to sell private genetic profiles for $2,500, but it’s really testing the FDA Print E-mail
Tuesday, 09 February 2016
Sure Genomics, a startup based in Utah, launched a genetic testing service today that costs a whopping $2,500 upfront, with an additional $150 subscription fee that guarantees DNA analysis updates every six months. The price is unusually high for a direct-to-consumer genetics company, since 23andMe and Ancestry offer genetics reports for $199 and $99, respectively. But Sure Genomics says it's worth it; customers who pay the fee will get their entire genome sequenced, and unlike others, the startup says it won't sell anonymized genetic information to third parties to turn a profit. But from a regulatory standpoint, Sure Genomics is treading on thin ice. The FDA has warned similar companies about...

Uber shuts down Paris service to protest new regulations Print E-mail
Tuesday, 09 February 2016
Uber is suspending its service in Paris today to support an ongoing driver protest against new regulations aimed at cracking down on ride-hailing apps in France. The company's French employees are joining a demonstration organized by a group of full-time chauffeurs who have been protesting against the government for five days now. At issue is a set of new regulations introduced after taxi unions staged a nationwide strike last month, calling for an end to Uber and other non-taxi chauffeur services. After meeting with the heads of taxi groups, French Prime Minister Manuel Valls vowed to tighten restrictions on the chauffeur services and ordered Uber and other apps to stop hiring a certain class of...

This Return of the Jedi fan edit might be the ultimate version Print E-mail
Monday, 08 February 2016
Years before fans said George Lucas ruined Star Wars with The Phantom Menace, they were berating him for ruining Star Wars in a whole different way — with Special Editions of Episodes IV, V, and VI that infamously added unnecessary CGI, changed dialogue, and reworked entire scenes. Star Wars fans clamored for years to get official re-releases of the original cuts of the movie, but when they finally saw the light of day as DVD features in 2006 they looked shoddy against the Special Editions, having been sourced from non-anamorphic video captured from LaserDiscs released in the early 1990s. Hayden Christensen is removed as Darth Vader's ghost But now fans' prayers have been answered, with the release...

An awesome person made this automatic Lego paper airplane machine Print E-mail
Monday, 08 February 2016
Lego is perhaps the greatest toy in the world. You can build anything you can imagine, whether that's a castle, a city, a mountain, or, in the case of this incredible video, an automatic paper airplane machine. The machine was made for a Super Bowl ad for Arrow Electronics, a Fortune 150 company that helps big companies do things with electronics. It doesn't sound very exciting, which is why it's working on this new branding campaign — this ad is for its aerospace and defense business. Arrow hired ad agency Elevation Digital Media, which hired Lego modeler Arthur Sacek, and the machine was born. Continue reading…
