Microsoft has acquired Semantic Machines, an artificial intelligence startup which could help Cortana hold more natural dialog with users.

Bose’s awesome ’90s magic carpet suspension is coming to production

Get iPhone X navigation gestures on Android: here’s how

Get iPhone X navigation gestures on Android: here’s how

It seems that the next smartphone trend after notches are button-less, swipe-based, pill-using navigation gestures. And, like the notch, we have Apple and its iPhone X to thank, or curse, for that. Android P will unabashedly have its own gestured-based navigation UI. If you're a fan of that feature, however, you need not wait that long or forever to get it. The folks over at XDA have released their own Navigation Gestures app that offers exactly that and a lot more. But while the app doesn't require root access, you'll need to aware of two important things before you go any further.

NASA CAL to create temperatures 10 billion times colder than space

NASA wants to make some very cold temperatures and to do this it is sending a laser to the International Space Station (ISS). That laser will be used in an experiment to create a spot 10 billion times colder than the vacuum of space. The apparatus is called the Cold Atom Laboratory (CAL) and is about the size of an ice chest. It will be sent to the ISS aboard an Orbital Cygnus rocket.

Apple HomePod by Beats: Cheaper but not enough to save it

Apple HomePod by Beats: Cheaper but not enough to save it

Apple products don't always become an overnight success. Some take years of constant marketing to hammer them into consumers' skulls. So while the HomePod's reported lackluster sales are disappointing for Apple fans, they might not be as fatal as some predict it to be. That said, the company seems to be trying to salvage its image by making a rather odd move. Not only is it coming out with a cheaper HomePod, according to reports it might not be launched as a HomePod at all.

OSSIC X 3D audio headphone dream is no more

OSSIC X 3D audio headphone dream is no more

Crowdfunding is always a risky venture, both for the creators as well as the backers. Being successfully funded, even raising three to five to ten times the goal, is never an assurance that the promised product will be delivered. The bigger the ambition, the bigger the risks and the OSSIC X is definitely a big one. It promised to do for audio what VR is doing for visuals. Sadly, that promise is dead as OSSIC, the startup behind the headphones, reveals it will no longer be able to deliver the remaining headphones as it has completely run out of funds.

TeenSafe child monitoring app leaked thousands of customer data

TeenSafe child monitoring app leaked thousands of customer data

It seems that our eagerness or carelessness in surrendering our data so easily to companies and services is finally coming back to haunt us. From massive customer database hacking to the recent Facebook scandal, the data we've sowed on company servers are now being reaped by others, often by criminals. This latest incident is both unfortunate and probably also inevitable. TeenSafe, an app that's supposed to keep kids safe by letting their parents monitor them, has now practically achieved the opposite by leaking parents' and children's data to almost anyone who has been able to grab hold of its database.
