Flashback Friday: But was it vibrating?

Flashback to the early 1990s, when this pilot fish works at a regional campus of a big state university. “One day, our IT staff and computer science faculty made a road trip to the main campus,” says fish. “We were treated to a tour of the main campus’ huge computer room. “Our tour guide told us to look but not touch, and he meant it. I merely pointed to a washing-machine-sized disk drive and was sternly reminded by the very nervous guide that the slightest vibration can cause these finicky disks to crash. “Perturbed by what I felt was an undeserved scolding, I pointed a second time — to a member of our computer science faculty who had planted his …

A new report outlines Facebook’s struggles to develop its own hardware

Photo by Amelia Holowaty Krales / The Verge Many companies set up their own, secretive divisions to develop new devices and technologies. There’s Lockheed Martin’s Skunkworks division, which produced the U-2 spy plane and the SR-71 Blackbird. Apple assembled a secret working group to develop the iPhone. Facebook set up its own division as it delved into hardware in recent years. A new report from CNBC outlines the drama behind the company’s secretive hardware division, Building 8, and how it struggled to develop its own hardware to compete with the likes of Amazon and Google. Building 8 is the division where Facebook has worked on some of its outlandish ideas, like a system that would allow users to type using …

New flat: I want to bug my own house with my phone

Hello r/homesecurity ​ I just moved into a new place and I'm a little uneasy on the security (ground floor, shared apartment block). I'm quite paranoid about being kidnapped – organs harvested etc, and it being covered up so that my family would not look for me. ​ Would anyone know of a device or app for Android that I could leave on overnight? It would record audio and live stream/store & upload it somewhere online as a file. Ideally, it would be accessible via a login for my family to refer to in the event of something happening. ​ An app is preferable as I have my phone with me now. ​ This is probably paranoia, but it's a …

Netflix released a podcast director’s commentary track for Always Be My Maybe

There’s been one thing that I’ve wondered about as Netflix cannibalized DVD sales in the last decade: why doesn’t the streaming service include things like director commentaries for the films and TV shows that it streams? That seems to be changing — Netflix recently launched a podcast series of director’s commentaries called Watching With…. Thus far, Netflix has released two episodes: one for the film Someone Great (featuring director Jennifer Kaytin Robinson), and another for the recently-released Always Be My Maybe which features director Nahnatchka Khan and actor Randall Park. You can access the podcast via Apple Podcasts or Spotify. The audio isn’t native on Netflix’s platform: you have to fire up the podcast on another device,… Continue reading… Read …

Quantum supremacy is coming. It won’t change the world

If quantum computers are to help solve humanity’s problems, they will have to improve drastically The unveiling of the marvel had the media gushing. It was Valentine’s Day 1946, and the New York Times broke the story. The front page spoke of “an amazing machine” and “one of the war’s top secrets”. By crunching numbers at unprecedented speed, the Electronic Numerical Integrator and Computer, with its 18,000 vacuum tubes, was poised to “revolutionise modern engineering”. Eniac would usher in a new epoch of industrial design, some said. More than 70 years on, another overblown announcement is near. Several companies, notably Google, IBM and the California-based Rigetti, are racing to build a machine that achieves what is grandly termed “quantum supremacy”. …

IndyCar will race 900-horsepower hybrid cars starting in 2022

Photo by Michael Allio/Icon Sportswire via Getty Images IndyCar, the top open-wheel racing series in the United States, just announced that its racecars will use hybrid powertrains starting in 2022.

Current IndyCars generate between 550 and 700 horsepower, depending on their configuration, which changes based on what track is being …

If anyone can’t edit their Play Store translations – here’s the solution that worked for me, in case someone else has this issue

I had issues for over a week not being able to edit the translations' text. Support could not troubleshoot this successfully. ​ The problem was not about the length of the descriptions (all within limit), or about any special characters. It did not help to log in from another device, nor to delete cache, nor to log incognito, nor to use another browser. ​ What DID help was to delete the translations ("Manage translation"–> "Remove translation"). Remove, then create anew. It's manual work but resolved my issue. ​ Posting here in case someone else finds it useful. submitted by /u/bluediavolo [link] [comments] Read more: reddit.com
