StumbleUpon changes repeat Digg blunders of old

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.

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.

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

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.

Must We Give Up All Sense of Privacy?

Must We Give Up All Sense of Privacy?

Privacy is dead, right? I mean, that’s all I’ve been hearing over the last year. From Edward Snowden to repeated hacks to claims that the US federal government is accessing personal information, we have nothing in the way of real privacy. No, according to all of the reports surrounding the Web, security, and privacy, the only thing we have going for us is, well, the realization that we’re not actually anonymous at all – either online or in our lives.

SmartThings Review: Living in the Smart Home

SmartThings Review: Living in the Smart Home

Prepare to hear a lot more about SmartThings. Kickstarter success turned Samsung acquisition, the smart home startup isn't the only DIY approach to home automation and security out there, but it may well end up being one of the best funded. SmartThings' mantra is one of openness, aiming to work with as many third-party components as possible rather than lock users into a closed platform. Admirable, but it could easily add up to confusion; I've been living the SmartThings life for the past six months to see whether it works.
