em-drive-electro-magnetic-ion-propulsion-spaceflight-nasa
It may not be warp drive, but EM drive is perhaps even more exciting, because it has a better chance of being science fact than fiction. EM drive technology theoretically could allow a trip to the moon in four hours, to Mars in 70 days, and to Alpha Centaurii, the star system nearest to our own, in roughly 130 years. It would take thousands of years using today's space travel technologies. [More...]

night-terrors-indiegogo-augmented-reality-immersive-gaming
Night Terrors could turn a walk through your own dark home into a terrifying experience, if the Indiegogo project succeeds at delivering what it promises -- the thrills and chills of immersing players in their own private horror movies. On the other hand, the biggest scares could come after hackers get their hands on all the minute details of players' residences stored in the cloud. [More...]

Drive-by attacks on the Internet are a particularly pernicious form of online threat, especially for individual Web surfers. On the corporate level, though, a company with good endpoint protection software can foil the malicious practice. A drive-by occurs when an infected website automatically downloads malware onto a Net traveler's computer. Endpoint solutions can thwart those kinds of attacks. [More...]

zuckerberg-internet-org
Net neutrality and Facebook's Internet.org initiative can and must coexist, insists CEO Mark Zuckerberg. Facebook on Monday announced that it will expand Internet.org to ensure that it doesn't conflict with the principles of a free and open Internet. CEO Mark Zuckerberg responded to criticisms of Internet.org and outlined plans to make the free service even more open. [More...]

adobe-creative-cloud-photography-lightroom
Adobe's recently launched new version of Lightroom for its Creative Cloud Photography platform improves performance of the photo manager and adds new HDR, panorama and facial recognition features. Lightroom's mobile support also is bolstered in the latest version of the program. Further, it has new capabilities for creating slideshows from stills and video. [More...]

microsoft-hololens
Creating realistic virtual reality and building a virtual Tomorrowland are just fragments of the possibilities that Microsoft showcased at Build last week. I wonder how long it will be until someone fully renders something like Tomorrowland for the HoloLens, and how long after that before someone else builds one in the real world? Wouldn't that be amazing? [More...]

quirky-poppy-reserve-wine-rack
I'll admit I'm not the planet's most refined wine connoisseur, but I do enjoy a glass or two of red with my dinner. At the minute, the few bottles I have are vacuuming up space around my kitchen, so I could use a wall-mounted wine rack -- but what's the use of having a rack with no bottles once they're finished? Poppy Reserve could solve the problem of a barren wine rack. [More...]

elon-musk-tesla-powerwall-solar-energy-storage-battery
Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk on Thursday announced the company's plan to develop residential and business battery systems, including the Powerwall Home Battery and business-oriented Powerpack. These systems are being developed to work in conjunction with solar panels to store energy for use at a later time. They also can draw power from the grid when demand for electricity is low. [More...]

no-ios-zone
A flaw in iOS 8 allows hackers essentially to crash apps that perform SSL communications whenever they like. Skycure reported the bug at the RSA security conference held last week, advising owners of iOS devices to upgrade to iOS 8.3. Apple this week confirmed that iOS 8.3 addresses the vulnerability. An attack would involve specially crafting an SSL certificate to regenerate a bug. [More...]

microsoft-edge-browser-build-developers
Microsoft on Wednesday made its new Edge browser available to participants in the Windows Insider Program. Joe Belfiore, corporate vice president, operating systems group, made the announcement at the company's Build developers' conference, being held in San Francisco through Friday. Edge is available through the Windows 10 Preview, accessible to Windows Insiders. [More...]

apple-watch
An Apple Watch app could free an enterprise from user names, passwords, physical IDs and badges. "If you think about enterprise security and security in general, what you find is that for something to be more secure, it has to be less convenient," said MicroStrategy President Paul Zolfaghari. "It's the opposite with the Apple Watch. You get greater security with a higher level of convenience." [More...]

LG on Tuesday unveiled its latest flagship smartphone, the G4. The official launch followed weeks of leaks about the device's design and features. The G4 has an f1.8 aperture lens; a new IPS Quantum display, which is generally seen in the latest TVs; a body curved in LG's "Slim Arc" design; and six genuine leather color options. Its rear 16-MP camera has a manual mode and a color spectrum sensor. [More...]

Have you ever heard of the Cullinan diamond? If you haven't, it was the largest diamond ever discovered: a 3106 carat diamond found in 1905 in South Africa. What's interesting about the Cullinan diamond isn't so much the discovery of the stone itself but what happened afterward: specifically, the cutting of the diamond. The Cullinan diamond was split into a number of smaller pieces. [More...]

Last year's breach of unclassified White House computer systems reportedly was far more intrusive than initially thought and included the theft of some presidential correspondence. No classified systems were compromised, including the servers that control message traffic from the president's BlackBerry. However, much of the information the unclassified servers handle is considered sensitive. [More...]

3d-printing-color-palette
3D printing is fascinating. It still seems wild to me that you can download schematics for anything and have a plastic version of a physical object in your home a short while later. However, not many printers can switch up the color or the types of filaments you use in your creation. The Pallette could change that, with a peripheral to brighten up that mono-colored trinket you're ready to print. [More...]

call-of-duty-black-ops-3-activision-treyarch
Activision will advance Call of Duty's theme of futuristic warfare with Black Ops III, a title developer Treyarch has been working on for three years. "These things are made up like blockbuster movies," said analyst Rob Enderle. "It's awfully hard to do a blockbuster movie in less than three years." One of the better combat series, it really lends itself to team play, he added. [More...]

microsoft-build
Microsoft is holding its Build event this week, marking the beginning of its major push to launch Windows 10. Build is in San Francisco this year, which effectively puts it right in the back yard of both Apple and Google -- a nice "in your face" move. I was the featured launch analyst for Windows 95 two decades ago and there, Microsoft ripped Apple a new rear orifice. [More...]

apple-watch-apps-games
Racking up more preorder sales in a couple weeks than the combined sales of all Android Wear units in 2014, the Apple Watch is in a position to redefine the nascent smartwatch market. It won't do that alone, however. The key ingredient is likely to be apps, apps and more apps. WayForward wants to be on the vanguard of the movement, claiming an early position with its Watch Quest game. [More...]

Apple is known for fantastic product design but not for customization. The first iPhone hit the world nearly eight years ago, and yet our "customizable" home screen options are limited to the organization of app icons and a few bland wallpaper choices. So all of us future Apple Watch owners likely will have to settle for a handful of Apple-developed watch faces. [More...]

YouTube on Thursday celebrated its first full decade in business. It was 10 years ago to the day that cofounder Jawed Karim uploaded the site's first video. It was a humble beginning: a 19-second clip of elephants, with Karim declaring that the pachyderms have "really, really long trunks." In fairness, it may have been in keeping with other notable firsts in technology. [More...]
