StumbleUpon changes repeat Digg blunders of old

There's some heavy changes going on out there in the world of content sharing, and StumbleUpon is feeling the sting of taking a gamble on keeping customers. What the content sharing site has done in its most recent update pushed sites to the background while it sticks its own menu bar in the foreground, this effectively taking away the element of freedom that StumbleUpon users had for so long been able to tout over similar sites. What StumbleUpon leaders had hoped to accomplish with this change is a click-retention ratio that would drive their own site into the record books - instead its cutting down their support from all sides.

Scientists Create Robot to Punch Humans Repeatedly

Scientists Create Robot to Punch Humans Repeatedly

Isaac Asimov's first law of robotics is well known amongst the Sci-Fi community. Something as powerful as, "A robot may not injure a human being" is pretty important, especially considering we've now got robots beating world-class human shogi players. But, apparently that first law doesn't mean anything if robots don't know the exact details as to how hard they can hit a human, before they injure a human. Thanks to a group of scientists, that law is currently being tested in the only way they see fit: by telling a robot to repeatedly punch humans.

Wii refresh “when the time is right” but not “any time soon” repeats Nintendo exec

Wii refresh “when the time is right” but not “any time soon” repeats Nintendo exec

You'd think after all the questions Nintendo would realise that we'd really like some updated Wii hardware, but their execs continue to downplay any need for a console refresh.  Speaking at the recent Nintendo Summit, Nintendo of America executive VP of sales and marketing Cammie Dunaway insisted that "Even though our installed base it, at this point, 5 million households larger than the PS2 was at the same point in its lifecycle, [Wii] still has a lot of room to grow."

Inexpensive WiFi repeater

Inexpensive WiFi repeater

Wireless networks are great, they make connecting to the rest of the world so much easier. However, you are always limited by how strong of a signal you get. The farther you are from the router, the less chance you have to connect. Today I've found a relatively inexpensive repeater that might help with boosting your signal.

New iOS app WhiteAlbum sends photos you’ve taken, but never seen

New iOS app WhiteAlbum sends photos you’ve taken, but never seen

Point, click, swipe, approve, and possibly repeat; that’s smartphone photography in a nutshell. You snap a picture, make sure it’s good enough, then move along unless you want to re-take it. It’s instant gratification, and oddly satisfying. Perhaps equally as satisfying is not knowing if your shot was good or not. We got a glimpse of that with the Polaroid Cube and HTC Re, where you shots weren’t immediately viewable. Taking that idea one step further is an app called WhiteAlbum, where you only see your shots once they’ve been mailed to you.

Google’s Project Zero targets OS X with three new exploits

Google’s Project Zero has released more 0day vulnerabilities, and is this time aiming for Apple. Over the past few days, Project Zero has slowly released some exploits found in OS X Yosemite. The vulnerability exposure team at Google first provides their findings to the company in charge of the software. After that time, they’ve got 90 days to fix it before Google’s Project Zero team publishes it to the world. While Microsoft was responsive to Google’s release, Apple is much more tight-lipped.

Logic Pro X has had a quiet update, with new backing percussion options and tools, tweaks to how the music app handles edits, and - maybe most important of all - smarter balancing of automation versus musicality. The new release to 10.1, a free update through the Mac App Store for existing Logic Pro X users, adds ten new Drummers in a variety of styles including techno, house, trap, and dubstep, along with special tools for tweaking drum tracks in electronic and hip hop music. Meanwhile, there's also AirDrop sharing and Retina support for those lucky enough to be composing on an iMac 5K.

This metal is so water-resistant that it bounces them off

This metal is so water-resistant that it bounces them off

If you think IPX8 grade waterproofing is already astounding, prepare to pick up your jaw after seeing this new metal etching technique. Researchers at the University of Rochester were able to come up with a laser-etching method that creates what is probably the most super hydrophobic sheet of metal in the world. It's so hydrophobic that water doesn't simply roll off to one side when tilted at an angle. Water drops actually bounce off repeatedly until they either fall off the edge.

Apple’s iPad Pro rumored to launch alongside stylus tool

With rumors continuing that Apple will release a 12.9-inch "iPad Pro" sometime before the end of 2015, the latest report speculates that the company will also debut its own stylus tool to accompany and enhance the extra-large tablet. This information comes from Ming-Chi Kuo, an analyst often considered a well-regarded and reliable source, who backs up his theory by pointing to a number stylus patents previously filed by Apple, as well as his own research into the company's future plans.
