hp-blended-reality-sprout
HP wants to ease computer users out of their flat two-dimensional digital world through a new product ecosystem dubbed "Blended Reality." The central idea seems to be to empower people to interact with images in ways that aren't so reliant on keyboard and mouse clicks, while bringing more dimensionality into the experience. The upshot could be more interesting products created by small shops. [More...]

bash-shellshock
Shellshock may pose a serious risk to consumers for some time. Those who purchase electronics for their home entertainment systems, for example, might be in for a nasty surprise. Many home devices -- including cable boxes, routers, NAS devices, and Internet-connected devices and services -- make use of Linux or Unix running a Bash shell, noted Lieberman Software's Chris Stoneff.

ampy-motion-battery-charger
Most people, most of the time, are near electrical outlets on reliable energy grids. For these people, Ampy is more about motivation than convenience. If you're aware of your motion and can associate exercise or movement with a positive benefit, you might be more likely to bike to work or go for a run. For backpackers, hikers, or people who live off the grid, Ampy shows promise. [More...]

elon-musk-artificial-intelligence-demon
Elon Musk fielded questions for more than an hour on electric cars, Mars colonization and his Hyperloop idea, but it was the seconds he devoted to artificial intelligence that got his MIT audience sitting up straighter. Musk called for regulatory oversight to "make sure that we don't do something very foolish," characterizing AI as a demon that might not be subdued by sprinkling holy water. [More...]

Malware writers behind Koler, a bad app that attacks Android devices, have upped their game with a new variant of the pernicious program. In its original version, Koler hijacked phones it landed on and wouldn't set them free until a ransom was paid. This latest strain of the malapp also does the ransomware thing, but it takes its malignancy a step further. [More...]

ikea-motorized-sit-stand-desk-ergonomics
There are all sorts of contraptions available to raise desktop equipment to standing work level, but they tend to be awkward or expensive. That's changing, as a simple motorized push-button desk from IKEA suggests. "Everyone is finally getting onto the bandwagon," said furniture industry analyst Mike Dunlap. "Every company I know that makes the mechanics can't keep up with the demand." [More...]

fitbit-charge-hr-surge
With smartwatches providing all sorts of health and fitness options, and activity-tracking gadgets selling for as little as $12 -- that's Pivotal Living's Life Tracker -- is there a place for the pricey dedicated bands Fitbit offers? Possibly. Serious fitness enthusiasts may not need or want all the bells and whistles of a smartwatch, but they might appreciate Fitbit's feature-rich alternatives. [More...]

Well it seems no matter how loudly we here in the Linux blogosphere try to hum a happy tune or discuss cheerful FOSS matters, we just can't seem to drown out the shouts and screams coming from those standing too close to the Systemd Inferno. Stand back, people! It's dangerous! The embers, of course, had been hot for some time already before the blaze flared sky-high a few months ago. [More...]

amazon-fire-tv-stick
With Chromecast lording over streaming online content devices, Amazon decided to bring its own Fire TV Stick to market. It has more storage and RAM than Google's Chromecast, and it's more powerful than the Roku Streaming Stick. "Amazon loyalists and prime members will buy this -- and because of its price, it could be broadly successful with the general public," said tech analyst Greg Sterling. [More...]

tesla-s
In every industry, there are pivotal moments when influential people decide to go one way or another, and the industry changes forever. I think the auto industry has reached the moment when it can decide either to embrace the future and improve, or fight the future and be crushed by it. I'm afraid the industry is making the wrong choice, and I doubt it will get another government bailout. [More...]
