When a star explodes, it's a catastrophic event on a cosmic scale. The amount of energy released is beyond the grasp of our puny human minds; in a few seconds it blasts out as much energy as the Sun... will over its entire lifetime. Needless to say, you don't want to be anywhere near a supernova. So what would it be like to be near three of them? If there are any aliens perusing the skies in the nearby galaxy M33, they got their chance. Astronomers have found the expanding debris from not one, but three previously unknown supernovae. Better yet: The spherical shells of gas hurled outwards by these explosions are concentric, centered on the same point in space, which means all three stars were very close to each other when they let go. This weird triple supernova was found using a technique...

How a Tattoo Gun Is Made in Prison

The motor, battery... pack, and switch come from a Walkman that's torn apart, the ink obviously comes from the pen, the needle is made from the paper clip, and the rubber bands hold it all together.

Microsoft's Surface ad usesIf biting snark doesn't work, maybe creepy folksiness will. That's the tact taken in Microsoft's latest commercial extolling the virtues of the Surface Pro 4 while slamming Apple's 13-inch MacBook... Air. The entire spot is presided over by a straw hat-wearing singer, who breaks down the Surface's superiority with elaborate Jonathan Coulton-style lyrics. We totally get the parts highlighting the Surface's touchscreen, stylus option and detachable keyboard, but the cat transformation part was less than cute, and maybe a little scary. Nevertheless, Microsoft's increasing confidence in pitting its mobile devices against Apple's in recent months is yet another sign that the platform wars are alive and well.

Snapchat has let you create custom geofilters for events since February, but until now you've needed image editing software to make one. Today the company rolled out a tool for creating on-demand... geofilters on the web, using templates for weddings, birthdays, and other celebrations. The filters, which can cost as little as $5 for a party in a small geographic area, will appear alongside the other geofilters inside the app when your guests post snaps during your event. Snapchat's tool lets you customize the filter's color palate and the text, and offers preview images to show you what your guests' snaps will look like once the filter is live.

While the first Where Cards Fall teaser doesn't show any actual gameplay, it gives a good idea of the vibe the creators are going for, set in a chill, but disconnected forest with an ambient piano suggesting that something important is about to happen. It ends with a hint at a game mechanic -- the core concept of building houses of cards. "The houses of cards become homes for...

This news jives with recent rumors surrounding the upcoming devices, codenamed "Marlin" and "Sailfish."

It's unclear what direction the company will take, as it has spent years fashioning the Nexus brand as a hardware entity while Google has reserved its own name for software services.

The end of Nexus: This year'sThe 'Nexus' brand is going away, but the biggest deal here is the large change in software experience that will accompany the new branding. This year's Google-branded Android phones will not use the... "Nexus" name, Android Central understands, indicating a hard break from the past six years of flagship devices for the company. The widely expected HTC-built handsets -- referred to as "Nexus" phones in recent online leaks -- will instead come to market under a different brand name, according to several people familiar with Google's plans. The move would seem to draw a line under the long-running Nexus series, which began with the HTC-made Nexus One back in December 2009 and continued to the Nexus 6P and 5X in 2015. Throughout the life of the Nexus program, Google has partnered with the likes...

Yes, Facebook is a media company

Re/code - 30 Aug 2016 17:59
Will a chart convince you? Okay. Here's a chart. Dear Mark, We get it. We understand why you don't want to call Facebook a media company. Your investors don't want to invest in a media company, they... want to invest in a technology company. Your best-and-brightest engineers? They don't want to work at a media company. And we're not even going mention Trending Topicgate here, because that would be rude. But here's the deal. When you gather people's attention*, and sell that attention to advertisers, guess what? You're a media company. And you're really good at it. Really, really good. Billions of dollars a quarter good. Frankly, it makes us more than a little jealous that you're so good at being a media company while insisting you're not a media company. We wish we were this good at not being...

I'm pissed off aboutTwo separate reports emerged around the same time on Monday claiming to offer new details on a number of key iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus specs. According to the claims, much of what we've seen and... heard thus far about Apple's upcoming iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus is accurate. They'll feature a new 16nm Apple A10 processor, 2GB or 3GB of LPDDR4 RAM depending on the model, upgraded cameras including a new dual-lens setup on the iPhone 7 Plus, and bigger batteries. That's all good news. But there was some bad news to be found in yesterday's leak, and the more I think about it the more annoyed I get. DON'T MISS: Leaked photos of iPhone 7 in blue remind us of the biggest remaining mystery Back in 2010 when Apple first introduced the iPhone 4, CEO Steve Jobs made a bold claim about the phone's new...

John Oliver blasts superheroLast Week Tonight with John Oliver may officially be on hiatus until September 25, but the comedian that the Daily Show should have never let leave was up to his usual tricks over the weekend in the... form of a web-only video about the sad state of superhero movies. If you're looking for biting commentary about the stream of garbage superhero movies we've seen as of late, that's not exactly what Oliver has in mind. While he touches on that every so briefly, the crux of Oliver's web-exclusive video is essentially him pitching a brand new superhero, one that he originally came up with as a kid. DON'T MISS: There are still two big problems with Apple's iPhones, but the iPhone 7 will solve one of them "Every year, the market is flooded with movies about superheroes," Oliver said.

Apple started out by confirming the decision is not final and that it plans to appeal. The company is "confident" the ruling "will be overturned" by courts in the European Union, but it notes the process is "likely to take several years." In the meantime, Apple does not expect any near-term impact on its financial results. How does this decision impact Apple's near-term financial results? Will you take a tax charge?

At the... time, the company knew that in order to serve customers in Europe, it would need a base there. So, in October 1980, Apple opened a factory in Cork, Ireland with 60 employees.

But Apple's leaders saw a community rich with talent, and one they believed could accommodate growth if the company was fortunate enough to succeed. We have operated continuously in Cork ever since, even through periods of uncertainty about our own business, and today we employ nearly 6,000 people across Ireland. Apple has been...

As of last month, Apple had $232 billion in cash,... with about $214 billion of that being held overseas. Q: Who receives the money if Apple ends up paying? A: The money gets paid to Ireland, which puts those funds into an escrow account and leaves it there until any appeal process has fully concluded. Q: Is the EU singling out Apple or forcing other companies to obey too? A: It's not just Apple. The EU authority has already ordered the Netherlands and Luxembourg to recover as much as 30 million euros ($33.3 million) apiece in back taxes from Starbucks Corp. and a Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV unit.

Intel's new 7th-gen chips willChances are if you've got a PC or a Mac, it's powered by an Intel processor.  The chipmaker rules with an iron fist (sorry, AMD), commanding roughly 85% of the desktop CPU market. And that dominance... shows no sign of ending now that Intel has announced its seventh-generation Core-branded processors, codenamed "Kaby Lake." The new chips are designed to help bring 4K video to the masses and allow laptop makers to build even thinner, lighter and more powerful designs. SEE ALSO: New MacBook Pro might come with a fingerprint sensor for extra security The new processors will come in Core m3, Core i3, Core i5 and Core i7 variants when they make their way to PCs, starting in early September.

The suggestions will be based on who you already follow and the topics you care about, and will be placed atop the Explore tab in the app. Since Stories are tied to each user's full Instagram account, you still have to follow each person's full feed in order to gain daily access to their shorter, 24-hour posts.

Tim Cook Pens Open Letter onTim Cook has posted an open letter on Apple's website in response to the European Commission's ruling that Apple must pay 13 billion euros ($14.5 billion) in back taxes dating from 2003 through 2014.... Cook's letter begins by discussing Apple's long history in Ireland, which dates back to a small facility that housed 60 employees in 1980. That statistic has now expanded to 6,000 employees across Ireland in total, benefiting both the company and local economies. As it's grown, Cook says that Apple has become "the largest taxpayer in the world," and that "Apple follows the law and we pay all the taxes we owe." Directly confronting the European Commission's ruling, Cook claims that the EC has "launched an effort to rewrite Apple's history in Europe." As responsible corporate citizens, we are...

How to decipher those "rugged" ratings on your phone

Several of the companies that make Android hardware build... them a little bit tougher or more resistant to the hazards of daily life. It's a big selling feature. If you're an enthusiast and bought a recent phone from Samsung, Sony, Kyocera or Sonim, you probably know at least a little bit about them. What those numbers represent can be important or even a deciding factor when spending the cash on a new phone. You'll usually see "ruggedness" described with an IP rating or a MIL-STD rating. Those are standards (loose ones in some cases) that determine how resistant something is the elements -- things like shock (both electrical and physical), temperature,...

Commission ordered Ireland to collect up to $14.5 billion in unpaid taxes from Apple, ruling that the Irish government's tax deals gave the company "a significant advantage" over other businesses, in violation of EU law. In the letter, published on Apple's website, Cook described the Commission's decision as "unprecedented," adding that it will have a "profound and harmful effect" on investment and jobs in Europe. Apple and Ireland have already said that they plan to appeal the decision. Read Cook's full letter below.

Citing a person familiar with the matter, VentureBeat states that the phone will officially launch on September 1... at IFA. A leaked render of the phone showcases design similarities with the One A9, as well as white, black, gold and silver color options. There are subtle differences in the design of the One A9s, such as the removal of the HTC logo above the home button. The rear camera is no longer centered (making it look even more like an iPhone 6s from the back), and the front camera has moved from the right to the left of the device. As for the hardware on offer, it looks like the One A9s will retain the 13MP camera at the back, with HTC moving from the UltraPixel camera at the front to a standard 5MP...

As 5G heads for IoT, 4G is far from done

PC World - 30 Aug 2016 08:23
As 5G heads for IoT, 4G is farThe iPhone 7 expected to debut on Sept. 7 may offer a glimpse into the future of smartphones, but it won't have 5G. And even though the next generation of cellular is due to launch in 2020, high-end... handsets may be LTE-only for years to come. A new IHS Markit survey of mobile operators says they see 5G as a tool for industry more than for smartphone users. But consumers probably won't have to worry about getting stuck in the slow lane, because LTE is still getting faster. Increasingly, it looks like 5G will handle things 4G can't handle while LTE continues to do the job it was designed for, based on the research company's latest findings.

Alphabet is an investor in Uber through its venture capital arm GV, and from all appearances will continue to stay so. But it had become increasingly evident that the ride-hailing company's efforts to build self-driving cars would put it in conflict with the aims of the Google Self-Driving Car Project, which has been one of the pioneers in the development of these autonomous vehicles. On Monday, Alphabet said Drummond, its senior vice president for corporate development, had recently quit the board of Uber. GV will continue to be an investor in the ride-hailing company.

The Cupertino company argues that each of the big three banks (Commonwealth Bank, National Australia Bank (NAB) and Westpac) have resisted "serious engagement" with Apple on Apple Pay for the past two years. Apple claims that they have tried and failed to negotiate with all of the banks, save for one bank who refuses to sign a confidentiality agreement that would allow Apple to send over its initial terms. Apple says that collective bargaining would slow negotiations further,...

Enlightened Captures: A Photographic Reflection of Self

The Phoblographer - 30 Aug 2016 06:02
Enlightened Captures: AI consider myself a generalist. My interest tend change with my surroundings, though lately I've been leaning more towards street and portrait photography. I sustain a few paid gigs a month, I... wouldn't consider myself a professional just yet. My lack of a specialty comes from my desire to explore the art of photography in its entirety. I was introduced to the art form through street photography, then quickly developed a passion for landscape photography and most recently portraiture. Regardless of the subject matter, my approach to crafting a photograph remains fairly consistent. I take a slow and measured approach. I take the time to define and contextualize what my subject is and what type of feelings I want to elicit in my photo. Once I have that idea, I allow myself the freedom to...

There's nothing inherently wrong with telling a story that's been told before. Every fictional story is a "What if?" and some of those what-ifs naturally play off earlier what-ifs, and take them in... different directions or to different conclusions. It's only a problem when the latest iteration of the story doesn't bring anything new to the table. With Luke Scott's debut film, Morgan, the lack of a fresh angle is a problem on two levels: first, the film doesn't have any particularly intelligent or clever answers to its own what-if premise. Second, it's operating in the shadow of other science-fiction films that do engage with the same questions. On paper, Morgan comes across as a cheaper version of 2009's Splice. Both films are about...

EU Ax Set To Fall On Apple

The Huffington Post - 30 Aug 2016 02:31
The European Commission will rule against Ireland’s tax dealings with Apple on Tuesday, two source familiar with the decision told Reuters, one of whom said Dublin would be told to recoup over 1... billion euros in back taxes. The Commission declined to comment on Monday. The European Commission accused Ireland in 2014 of dodging international tax rules by letting Apple shelter profits worth tens of billions of dollars from tax collectors in return for maintaining jobs. Apple and Ireland rejected the accusation; both have said they will appeal any adverse ruling. The source said the Commission will recommend a figure in back taxes that it expects to be collected, but it will be up to Irish authorities to calculate exactly what is owed. A bill in excess of 1 billion euros ($1.12 billion)...

But how exactly does that play out in lawyer’s offices? We asked divorce lawyers to share the ways they’ve seen social media interfere with clients’ marriages.

New Surface Pro 3 firmwareSurface Pro 3 owners who have had problems getting reasonable battery life from their tablets have relief coming their way. Microsoft pushed out a firmware update to Surface Pro 3 devices on Monday... that's supposed to fix a problem that keeps the battery from charging all the way. An error in a limited number of devices causes the system to get the wrong charge capacity for the Surface Pro 3's battery, the company said. As a result, the battery isn't charged all the way, even though the system thinks it reached capacity. "Think of this like a fuel gauge in a car, where the car looks to the fuel gauge to determine how much to fill the tank," Microsoft said in a support document accompanying the update. "In this case, if the fuel gauge isn't working right, the car would also not be able to...

In June, anonymous hackers stole... administrative login credentials in an unnamed county that would have let them delete voter registration records and prevent citizens from casting ballots. The information comes from the Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center (MS-ISAC), which monitors cyber attacks against state and local governments and shares information with the FBI. MS-ISAC is supported by the Department of Homeland Security. The attack in June targeted a county election official through a phishing email, according to Brian Calkin, vice president of operations for the Center of Internet Security, which runs MS-ISAC.

Stay Calm And Erase Per Policy

Forbes - 30 Aug 2016 02:00
Stay Calm And Erase Per PolicyLast week, we learned that (gasp) U.S. presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton - or her staffers – used a freeware data removal tool to purge emails from her now infamous private email server.  The... debate around Ms. Clinton’s email practices is getting muddled, if you ask me. If she is to be condemned for hosting her State Department communications outside the State Department’s IT infrastructure because that would expose it to hacking from enemy states like Russia (the most common bugaboo), shouldn’t she be commended for ensuring that they were safely erased?

It’s called MOS Pack, a backpack with a built-in portable charging station for all your gadgets. It has pockets... for iPhones (or other smartphones), iPads, your passport, and a spot for a water bottle. On the charging side, the MOS pack doesn’t have a built-in battery--which you’d have to lug around--but instead has a charging station that distributes power to all your gadgets from one plug. Inside it has a cable management system you feed to each gadget in each pockets, and you’re charging everything without having to pull them out. I thought it quite clever at $99.
