A number of updates to Spotify are announced by CEO Daniel Ek including a "video capsule." This video capsule will be launching with partners such as Comedy Central, Vice News, and MTV. At this time it's not entirely clear whether or not this portal will work with music content only, or if it'll expand to a wide range of oddities in the near future. The update to Spotify's apps will occur beginning this afternoon. The video wars have only just begun.

Facebook Messenger video calling now rolling out to all

Facebook Messenger video calling now rolling out to all

It's time to freshen up, comb that hair, exercise that jaw, and maybe bring out the dictionary or translation guide. Facebook Messenger's new video calling feature, which was announced barely a month ago, is now starting to roll out everywhere and on every platform. Messenger is shaping up to be one distinct and, more importantly, distinguishable product apart from Facebook's main app, giving users the convenience of expressing themselves better, more immediately, and perhaps more creatively than they could with text, emoji, stickers, or even memes.

KFC had a food tray that was also a Bluetooth keyboard

Whoever said that fast food does nothing good for you should get ready to eat their words. And some KFC too. The German division of the food chain has unveiling a solution to the problem of typing on your smartphone or tablet with greasy fingers: a thin, flexible Bluetooth keyboard that comes on the tray under your food order. It's called the KFC Tray Typer, and before you rush out to your nearest fried chicken fast food outlet, know that this has only been shown in Germany, and you can't really get your hands — greasy or not — on one. Read on for the explanation.

Google reprimanded for YouTube Kids app showing inappropriate content

Google reprimanded for YouTube Kids app showing inappropriate content

Google's recent mobile app, YouTube Kids, a version of the popular video service that curates safe content for young children, has come under fire from two child and consumer advocacy groups claiming that the app is deceiving. The Center for Digital Democracy and the Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood filed a complaint with the FTC, stating that "the app is rife with videos that would not meet anyone’s definition of 'family friendly.'" The complaint included evidence of video clips that had been found on YouTube Kids that were described as disturbing and/or harmful to young children.

BrakePack gives bicyclists taillights and turn signals

One of the challenges for people that ride bicycles frequently is being sure that drivers in cars around them are able to see them and understand what they are doing when it comes to stopping and turning. A new backpack not only carries all the items you need for a day at work or a day exploring the city, it also puts stoplights and turn signals on your back as well.

Nuimo, a.k.a. Flow 2.0, can now control your home too

Nuimo, a.k.a. Flow 2.0, can now control your home too

Sometimes, crowdfunding successes come back for another round in the hopes of meeting success again. And sometimes, they do. That seems to be the case for Senic, the very same people who brought the wireless controller Flow to our attention. They've returned to the crowdfuning scene, but this time they are doing things quite differently. First, they've launched on Kickstarter instead of the previous Indiegogo. Second, they changed the name from what should have been "Flow 2.0" to "Nuimo". But most importantly, they've expanded their scope beyond just computers and mobile devices.

Rhino Slider & Motion review; a must-have movement in photography

Rhino Slider & Motion review; a must-have movement in photography

I have a confession: I love House of Cards. Part of the reason for my obsession is the opening sequence (and probably Kevin Spacey’s oddly passable/terrible accent). The time-lapse, gently rolling through various points of Washington D.C., is just magical. I’ve always wanted to do something like that, but it seemed like an investment beyond the scope of what I was willing to spend (HoC uses a RED Camera!). Rhino isn’t asking much of me, though. Motion pairs a slider with a simple motor for fine-tuned live motion time-lapse, and — spoiler alert — it’s awesome.

Samsung ARTIK wants to wire the IoT (& solve drought)

Samsung ARTIK wants to wire the IoT (& solve drought)

Samsung has launched a new range of chipsets intended to get your home appliances online and talking to each other, borrowing smartphone chip tech for its new ARTIK range. The trio of tiny boards - as small as 12 x 12 mm - connect via Bluetooth, WiFi, or ZigBee, model depending, with Samsung hoping they find their way into everything from connected toasters and fridges to future wearables. Meanwhile, since having your coffee pot hacked is probably considered unwelcome, ARTIK has baked-in hardware encryption.
