    This is a video of a technician climbing up to the top of a transmission tower to do some maintenance work.

    It's been a long week, hasn't it? In some ways. So much work, such laboring. Are you making sure to wear all of your white clothes this week? I myself am wearing all of my white clothes right now. All at once. Layers upon layers of all my white clothing, and accessories, all as a bundled but visible middle-finger to the rank, base, scratchy, sweating cockeyed bitch that is summer. At its most basic what we call summer's really just another word for nature's ineluctability, right? And which is to say, I am getting real damned tired of it.Read more......

    In a 110-to-61 landslide, chess Grandmaster Garry Kasparov has lost his bid for the World Chess Federation presidency to a man who says that he was abducted by aliens.

Real names will also be blocked from the site whenever possible.The changes were announced in a blog post on Friday.It’s a much-needed update to the app that’s become one of Silicon Valley’s most p...

    Only in Washington, DC could a lack of technological know-how be a positive thing. In a city where people prefer to vote for charismatic politicians over intellectuals, White House cybersecurity coordinator Michael Daniel sees his lack of expertise as a selling point."Being too down in the weeds at the technical level could actually be a little bit of a distraction," he told Gov Info Security. "You can get enamored with the very detailed aspects of some of the technical solutions. And, particularly here at the White House ... the real issue is to look at the broad, strategic picture and the impact that technology will have."Daniel, who describes himself as “not a coder” is an unlikely appointed official to oversee the White House’s national cybersecurity strategy and policy. Most senior policy makers, as ...

    Silicon Valley is invading Washington, D.C., casual clothing style and all.

And despite sharing the air and working in the same building as President Obama, colleagues in the White House seem pretty approving of Dickerson’s untucked button-ups and slacks. Why? Because to them, all it matters is that Dickerson can get the job done— not whether o...

Node has been on the scene for five years, during which time it's become the go-to tool for JavaScript developers who build messaging tools, game servers, and other real-time applications that require a speedy response from servers.Node.js project lead TJ FontaineWhile Node isn't exactly an industry standard, several high-...

    In the two years since Apple birthed iMessages, the texting system has been a revelation for iPhone and Mac users. Few could dispute the convenience of being able to text other Apple users without relying on carriers (or even phones, for that matter). Unfortunately, that promised land of SMS couldn’t remain unspoiled forever.The system started showing a few cracks, the latest of which is best summarized by one word: spam. Cloudmark security researcher Tom Landesman told Wired that there’s one super-spamming operation largely responsible for littering the Apple landscape, though neither he nor his company seems to know who the party or parties responsible for this assault on our iPhones may be. What he can say is that this prolific junk mail operation has sent so much SMS detritus, iMessage now accounts for more than 30% of all mobile message spam. How Apple I...

    This might be a bad time if you're a fledgling app developer trying to score a mainstream hit.

    Let me speak in defense of the click for a moment.There's no term I find more puzzling in modern media jargon than "clickbait." A story lives to be told. Writers write for their readers. What does a storyteller long for more than the gaze of a rapt listener?Back in the early days of the Web, the click was novel, a brain-busting rush of seemingly endless information. We clicked and clicked and clicked, surfing the Web until we reached the end of the Internet.The author with Flipboard's Mike McCueTwo decades on, the click has become a trick—one some disillusi...

    On August 13, I sat down with Flipboard CEO Mike McCue to talk about the future of media at our latest ReadWriteMix event. I didn't expect us to dive right into media's past. McCue told me he drew inspiration from figures like Clay Felker, the founder of New York magazine, who, McCue recalled, called the publications "tribal organizing documents."McCue and I are both veterans of the early Web. In the '90s, he worked at Netscape, the browser maker which served as a printing press for so many early Web publishers, while I worked as a webmaster and online reporter for some of the first publications to go online.In trying to create something new and original, the Web rejected some conventions of older mediums like print. With Flipboard, McCue sought to bring some of the sensibilities of magazines back to digital media, first on the iPad, then on mobile phones, and...
    rtoz writes Google has just announced a new processor for Project Ara. The mobile Rockchip SoC will function as an applications processor, without requiring a bridge chip. A prototype of the phone with the Rockchip CPU, will be available early next year. Via Google+ post, Project Ara team Head Paul Eremenko says "We view this Rockchip processor as a trailblazer for our vision of a modular architecture where the processor is a node on a network with a single, universal interface -- free from also serving as the network hub for all of the mobile device's peripherals." (Project Ara is Google's effort to create an extensible, modular cellphone; last month we mentioned a custom version of Linux being developed for the project, too.) ...

    As reported by the BBC, two satellites meant to form part of the EU's Galileo global positioning network have been launched into a wrong, lower orbit, and it is unclear whether they can be salvaged. NASASpaceFlight.com has a more detailed account of the launch, which says [D]espite the Arianespace webcast noting no issue with the launch, it was later admitted the satellites were lofted into the wrong orbit. “Following the announcement made by Arianespace on the anomalies of the orbit injection of the Galileo satellites, the teams of industries and agencies involved in the early operations of the satellites are investigating the potential implications on the mission,” noted a short statement, many hours after the event. It is unlikely the satellites can be eased into their correct orbit, even with a large extension to their transit time. However, ESA are not classing the satellites as lost at this time. “Both satellites have been acquired and are safely controlled and ...

    An anonymous reader writes "Gartner reckons that the number of connected devices will hit 26 billion by 2020, almost 30 times the number of devices connected to the IoT in 2009. This estimate doesn't even include connected PCs, tablets and smartphones. The IoT will represent the biggest change to our relationship with the Internet since its inception. Many IoT devices themselves suffer from security limitations as a result of their minimal computing capabilities. For instance, the majority don't support sufficiently robust mechanisms for authentication, leaving network admins with only weak alternatives or sometimes no alternatives at all. As a result, it can be difficult for organizations to provide secure network access for certain IoT devices." ...

The EU summary of the new rules explains that consumers currently equate watts with cleaning power, which is not the case.

In the EU vacuum cleaners use more energy than the whole of Denmark, and produce more emissions than dishwashers and washing machines." ...

    DeviceGuru writes Eltechs announced a virtual machine that runs 32-bit x86 Linux applications on ARMv7 hardware. The ExaGear VM implements a virtual x86 Linux container on ARMv7 computers and is claimed to be 4.5 times faster than QEMU, according to Eltechs. The VM is based on binary translation technology and requires ARMv7, which means it should run on mini-PCs and SBCs based on Cortex-A8, A7, A9, and A15 processors — but sadly, it won't run on the ARM11 (ARMv6) SoC found on the Raspberry Pi. It also does not support applications that require kernel modules. It currently requires Ubuntu (v12.04 or higher), but will soon support another, unnamed Linux distro, according to Eltechs, which is now accepting half price pre-orders without payment obligation. ...

    An anonymous reader writes Google has been testing its autonomous vehicles on U.S. roads for a while now. In fact, they're required to, by law. "California's regulations stipulate autonomous vehicles must be tested under "controlled conditions" that mimic real-world driving as closely as possible. Usually, that has meant a private test track or temporarily closed public road." It's easy enough to test a few prototypes, but whenever autonomous cars start being produced by manufacturers, it'll become a lot more complicated. Now, Google is lobbying to change that law to allow testing via computer simulation. Safety director Ron Medford said, "Computer simulations are actually more valuable, as they allow manufacturers to test their software under far more conditions and stresses than could possibly be achieved on a test track." Google spokeswoman Katelin Jabbari said, "In a few hours, we can test thousands upon thousands of scenarios which in terms of driving all over again might take dec...

    onproton writes Northern Illinois University recently began restricting student access to web pages that contain "illegal or unethical" content which, according to University policy, includes resources used for "political activities...and the organization or participation in meetings, rallies and demonstrations." A student raised concerns after attempting to access the Wikipedia page for Westboro Baptist Church, and receiving a filter message informing him that his access of this page would likely violate the University's Acceptable Use Policy, along with a warning that "all violations would be reviewed." This has lead to questions about whether some policies that restrict student access to information are in the best interest of the primary goal of education. ...

    An anonymous reader writes: I have an old phone with a battery that barely works anymore. My current phone's battery is mediocre — I can put up with it, but I've been thinking about getting a new one. My four-year-old ThinkPad holds less of a charge than I'd like, and less than it did when I bought it. In all these cases, the only thing holding me back from buying a new battery is that I'm not sure where to find a good one. Searching for my phone's battery on Amazon (or any major online retailer) yields a dozen results, all fairly cheap. But which are reliable? They all seem to have varying reviews, ranging from "Perfect official factory replacement!" to "Garbage knock-off, worse than the battery I replaced." Part numbers don't seem to help, as the knock-offs replicate those pretty well. I ask you, Slashdot: where can I find a good replacement battery? ...
     HBO’s “Silicon Valley” is more than your average breakout series that had audiences praying for a second season even as the credits on the pilot began to roll.

    In the near decade that's passed since director Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller brought Miller's noir comic Sin City to the big screen, filmmaking technology has gotten better, comic book movies have become an official Big Deal, and 3-D has become a lot more palatable.

The unrest prompted Governor Jay Nixon to declare a state of emergency on Saturday an implement a curfew in the St. Louis suburb.

    Tycho: We’ve got a thing going right now where we are doing that.  So, any Penny Arcade Print or Print Set from the store will get signed, and of course any of the daily strips.  If you have liked one, or you think for some inexplicable reason that another person might like it, the orange button in the upper right of any comic will take you to the store.  Okay, that’s it.  See you around. (CW)TB...

    Tycho: There’s a new playtest for Thornwatch coming to PAX Prime, one that plays around with the systems a little bit.  Jamie had an idea counter to a decision on the game’s fundamental focus, and she proved that contentious ground with an adventure.  That adventure forms the core of what you might play at Prime.  I’ll let him do the rest of it, but I will also put a link to the newsletter sign-up because newsletter subs are how he determines his worth as a person now.  Well, newsletter subs, and maintaining an atmosphere of psychological terror. I was…...

    Gabe: The Thornwatch “design team” is really just five people. There’s me obviously but I’ve got help from Kiko, Jamie, Fehlauer, and Kenneth. It’s still sort of a side project so a lot of the work we do on it happens over lunch. We pick a restaurant near the office and work out whatever design issues need to get resolved. I did not plan it this way when assembling my team but they are all very different types of gamers and so we end up getting a lot of really great points of view. Kiko and Kenneth are all about clear and concise rules and mechanics while Jamie and Feh tend to be more…...

    Tycho: The kids on the server made their statues out of wool, presumably for the wide range of colors.  Their intense flammability was, we can guess, not conscious portion of the decision matrix. Initial reports suggested that it might be Herobrine, who you might know of, or might not.  If you played Minecraft when many enthusiast gamers did, which is to say a thousand fucking years ago, and then went to Terraria or Starbound in search of untapped novelty your diagram would never have overlapped Him.  But… he’s not real, which simultaneously makes him the least likely and…...

    Gabe: My son Gabe has a Minecraft Realm that he and his friends play on. It’s a service that Mojang offers allowing you to rent a private server. You need to specifically invite people to the server otherwise there is no way for them to join. As a Dad, I like this much better than having him out there playing on public servers. It’s not full weirdos who might be preying on kids, but it is full of 9 year olds and that presents its own problems. These kids spend a lot of time on their Minecraft projects. I’ve been on there and seen massive statues, elaborate games and machines, sprawling…...

    New Comic: Mr. Popularity

    Gabe: We’re preparing the Thornwatch playtest adventure for PAX Prime and it’s going really well. At PAX East we had people play the game, but it was really just a combat scenario. It was designed to test our card mechanics and our Momentum deck which manages initiative as well as monster damage. It was a great test and we got a lot of really useful feedback. Now with PAX prime coming up we’re ready to show off a more complete picture of what playing Thornwatch will really be like. (The map is only about half drawn but they’re still having fun!)

For the next 72 hours, many amateur (and professional) game developers are going to hunker down and do their best to create a game focused around a central theme.

LOGIC *gasp!*" The compilation will also have full Japanese text for the three games which, as Hsu says, could be a terrific way to learn "idioms, slang, legal terms, and natural-sounding Japanese in general." Between this stuff, the new art, and remastered music and sound effects, Ace Attorney Trilogy is sounding increasingly worthwhile for fans of the series. ...

    Trent Cannon from Zero1Gaming.com takes a look at some of the best combat systems we've seen in the past.

    "Most platformers seem to follow a basic structure when it comes to simple implementations like control and level flow. Sometimes as an audience however, we are treated to subversions in the stereotypical platforming mechanics, and Super Comboman would be one of those unique times. A successful Kickstarter project from 2012, Super Comboman is a game that aims to mix beat 'em up combat with a distinct platforming feel. As you can tell from the outside, these are two extremely different ideals to marryIdeals that unfortunately however may just be let down by the rest of its parts." -Presspauseradio.com...

    Blackbird attacks people For licensing/usage please contact: licensing(at)jukinmediadotcom I was filming this blackbird during a few days, and I came to some conclusions: 1.Very few of nesting blackbirds actually attack people. There were dozens nests around, but only this one bird kept attacking people. 2. Most attacked people were going from left to right. Seldom, mostly runners, were attacked while going from right to left. 3. Bird attacked only when he believed he's not seen. 4. If a person had a hand atop of his head the bird did not attack. 5. Some people behaved much crazier

    When [Willem] visited home last year, he stopped in at his grandparents’ house and found that his very active 93-year-old grandfather had recently gone almost completely blind and was passing the days just sitting in a chair. [Willem] suggested that he listen to audio books, but his grandfather wasn’t receptive to the idea until [Willem] convinced him that the well-narrated ones can be very gripping and entertaining.

The materials inside the cigarette filters offered up better performance than commercially bought carbon, graphene and carbon nanotubes at the time.
