Beach Bunny “April”
“April” is a song about months going by while you’re stuck in an emotional stasis, hung up on a relationship that’s long over but is idealized in your mind beyond all reason. Lili Trifilio sings the song with a plaintive but slightly defensive tone, as though she’s a little embarrassed to feel this way but honors her emotion too much to side against the part of herself that might be like “oh, please, shut up about this, this isn’t healthy.” Maybe the sentiment here is a bit pathetic, but only if you’re looking at it without much empathy or the emotional intelligence to notice it’s all just processing an experience to learn what you actually want and need. Not for...

Les lepénistes du samedi et de l’Arc de Triomphe auront permis à l’Etat de justifier une hausse sans précédent du niveau de répression et le retour des voltigeurs, dans une apathie de réponse presque totale puisque un peu à la manière du PCF dans les années 70, cette jonction entre les maos, l’extrême gauche et l’extrême droite aura liquidé toute idée de gauche et toute idée de classe tout en se revendiquant au mieux de la classe ou au pire, du “peuple”.
Il s’agit d’une corruption en profondeur de tout l’appareil idéologique du mouvement ouvrier et de 150 ans de luttes sociales qui ont été liquidés en à peine plus d’une année, emmenant au cœur de la classe, la...

Image: Ring Amazon’s home security company Ring is changing the way users log into their accounts to increase security and control privacy, the company announced today. Starting this week, Ring will mandate a second layer of security by requiring users to enter a one-time six-digit code sent via email or SMS whenever they try and log in to see the state of their indoor and outdoor cameras. The company which makes the popular Ring Video Doorbell is also introducing new options for users to control when their data is shared with other companies.
The changes are Ring’s latest attempt to overcome the privacy and security scandals that have dogged it in recent months. Last December, critics pointed out that...

À l'ombre du green deal ou du Brexit, l'Union développe une vision sur sa sécurité intérieure et son contrôle extérieur. L'Europe forteresse devient une Europe d'investigation numérisée. Ainsi, le rapport de Roberta Metsola intitulé « faux documents et documents authentiques en ligne » et la « déclaration du Conseil et de la Commission sur l'état des lieux de la lutte de L'Union contre le blanchiment de capitaux » ne donnèrent pas lieu à des débats. Nous avons plutôt assisté à un travail collaboratif, où les élus ont pu soulever de nouvelles problématiques sur l'impact du projet, et apporter une plus-valu dans l'échange institutionnel.

Farm to pizza! | Image: Zume Pizza Want to read a parable about the cult of the Silicon Valley founder and the Softbank investors caught in the wake of his gilded robes? Good, because Bloomberg Businessweek has the inside story detailing the implosion of Zume, that pizzas-made-by-robots-and-cooked-during-delivery startup. Zume’s co-founder and co-CEO Alex Garden attracted a $375 million investment from Softbank’s Masayoshi Son, the man who gave $3 billion in venture capital to Adam Neumann during his ill-fated tenure at WeWork.
Here’s how Bloomberg describes the first meeting of Garden and Son:

While there are many hundreds of pirate sites and hundreds of millions of pirates around the globe today, for many years it was Sweden that generated a disproportionate number of news headlines covering the phenomenon.
With a population that had become exceptionally comfortable with file-sharing technologies and a general lack of enforcement, sites like The Pirate Bay flourished alongside significant numbers of private torrent sites, so-called Direct Connect hubs, and streaming sites. Eventually, however, legislation and law enforcement began to catch up, targeting sites both large and small, as well as individuals viewed as significant players by the entertainment industries.

Nintendo has announced the first new Switch Lite color since the portable-only console launched last fall. The new hue is “coral,” perhaps belatedly inspired by Pantone’s decision to name “Living Coral” the Color of the Year for 2019. Or maybe Nintendo wants it out in time for cherry blossom season.
Coral joins turquoise, grey, and yellow in the regular lineup. It’ll be available in Japan on March 20th, with preorders starting on March 7th. Notably, the launch of the new system doesn’t appear to have been affected by the coronavirus outbreak, unlike the upcoming Animal Crossing-themed Switch. The coral Switch Lite maintains the same price of 19,980 yen ($182). Continue reading…

Photo by GREG BAKER/AFP via Getty Images Supply-chain analytics provider TrendForce has issued a report assessing the likely impact of the 2019-nCoV outbreak on tech manufacturing. The coronavirus has already caused major disruption throughout the tech industry, with huge trade shows cancelled and companies like Apple expecting to miss their forecasts.
The report breaks its assessments down into individual components as well as product categories to provide a broad overview of the industry. It could also give some indication of what’s in store for individual companies like Apple. It’s worth reading the whole thing, but here are a few takeaways: Smartphone production is projected to decline 12 percent...

Americans think their finances are improving. According to a survey from Gallup, 59% of Americans say they are financially better off than they were a year ago. Twenty percent said they were worse off than a year ago, and 21% were about the same.
Gallup has been putting this question to US respondents on an almost annual basis since 1977—59% is the highest positive response rate it has ever recorded, just topping 58% in 1999.
In addition to asking about the past, Gallup also asks respondents to look to the future. In the most recent survey, 73% of respondents said they expect their finances to be better a year from now, also a record. Gallup surveys just over 1,000 people.

It probably doesn’t surprise you to hear there are tens of thousands of web-connected cameras all over the world that are set to take the default credentials.

China’s SenseTime, the world’s most valuable AI startup, said earlier this month (link in Chinese) that it was rolling out a facial-recognition product that incorporates thermal imaging cameras to help spot people with elevated temperatures, and send pop-up alerts to users of the software. With the addition of a mask algorithm, it can also detect those who are not wearing masks in public places. Meanwhile, for building access control, its software...

Careful,  the walls have ears. Or more specifically, the smart speaker on the table has ears, as does the phone in your pocket, the fitness band on your wrist, possibly the TV, the fridge, the toaster, and maybe even the toilet. Oh, and your car is listening to you too. Probably.
How does one fight this profusion of listening devices? Perhaps this wearable smart device audio jammer will do the trick. The idea is that the MEMS microphones that surround us are all vulnerable to jamming by ultrasonic waves, due to the fact that they have a non-linear response to ultrasonic signals. The upshot of that is when a MEMS hears ultrasound, it creates a broadband signal in the audible part of the spectrum. That creates...

If we write about sound reproduction, there is a good chance we found a home-made amplifier or an upcycled speaker system. In this case, you don’t use your ears to appreciate the sound; you use your hands or eyes. [ElatisEagles] converted an amplitude sound graph into a wearable bead. Even without much background it should be immediately recognizable for what it is. Presumably, they converted a sound wave to vectors, then used the “Revolve” function in Rhino, their software of choice. Sometimes this is called a “lathe” function. Resin printers should be able to build these without supports and with incredible fidelity.
Some tattoos put a sound wave on the skin, and use an app to play it back, but if...

Every well-equipped wood shop has a dust collection system, with blast gates at every tool to direct the suction power where you need it. If these gates are hard to reach they can be real pain to operate. [Cosmas Bauer] had this problem with his table saw, and created a convenient cable-operated mechanism.
The dust chute on table saw is on the back end, meaning he needs to walk around it to open it, and then walk back to the front to operate the machine. As we all know, laziness increased efficiency can be an excellent reason for projects. Electronics or pneumatics might get the job done, but [Cosmas] realised that a mechanical system might be simpler and more reliable.  Being a woodworker, he built most of...

But now, there’s at least one reported instance of the new foldable’s screen actually separating from the plastic laminate above the display, and it’s apparently doing so right on that bad hinge.
Input’s Raymond Wong published an article yesterday about the issues he’s seeing with a Razr that Input has owned for a little more than a week. Wong noticed that the screen had started to peel away the laminate top layer right at the hinge, creating a bubble between the screen and the laminate.

Tennessee Williams (born Thomas Lanier
Williams), was an American playwright whose work earned him two Pulitzer Prizes.
He is best known for penning iconic plays such as A Streetcar Named Desire and Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. Williams’ childhood wasn’t a happy one since his parents were resentful of each other most of the time, and his father loved to gamble and drink. His home became a tense place to live in, so young Williams would often escape into the world of reading and writing. Before having a chance to earn a degree in journalism at the University of Missouri, the writer was forced by his father to take a job as a sales clerk. He later described the time spent there as the most miserable two years...

Most of us may remember our pre-teen years as being awkward, occasionally enjoyable yet sometimes unbelievably embarrassing. We’ve all gone through those familiar moments during the early teenage years that unite us regardless of our differences: the first heartbreak, the random attempts at being rebellious, the fear of losing our friends, the desire to be independent, and the need to maintain absolute control over our lives.  Macaulay Culkin, who most of you may know as the bubbly, precocious, goofy Kevin McAllister from Home Alone, was one of the most famous child stars Hollywood has ever seen or produced. He was a lovable icon to both kids, teenagers, and adults throughout the 90s.  His rise to fame...

Strawberry Generation “When You Were Here And I Was Sad”
There’s never been any shortage of fey indie-pop bands aiming for a sunny-yet-melancholy twee sensibility, but there has been a relatively low number of bands who I feel have the songwriting skill to nail this type of song rather than just sort of set a vibe and call it a day. “When You Were Here and I Was Sad” is nearly perfect iteration of this type of song, from the contrast of the bright and crisp lead guitar lines and the more hazy ambiance of the chords in the chorus to the particular lilt in Valerie Zhu’s voice as she sings her instantly memorable verse melodies. This band is clearly steeped in the history of their subgenre and have...

When [Billiam]’s beloved Logitech G13 game pad went to that great spectate room in the sky, he decided to pay homage by designing a custom, more ergonomic replacement from the desk up. Grab a spoon and dig into the story of [Billiam]’s journey toward Sherbet, because it’s a sweet ride.
Here’s the scoop: like a lot of DIY game pads and keyboards, Sherbet is based on the Teensy. We often see the micro USB coming straight off the Teensy, especially in clear acrylic builds, but [Billiam] added a USB breakout board so there’s no direct stress on the Teensy itself.
One of [Billiam]’s design challenges comes from the game pad placement — he has a tall desk and uses a keyboard tray, so it has to fit the...

Along with millions of other ‘normal’ websites, ‘pirate’ sites often use Cloudflare’s services. The CDN company has a stated aim of remaining a neutral intermediary but entertainment industry groups see the company as helping to facilitate piracy by assisting sites to more efficiently stay online while rendering their true locations harder to find.
