Here are some examples of web-sites which send your passwords on demand in clear text back to your inbox. This practice, AFAIK, is very insecure and proves your passwords are stored in clear text as well.
Yet another example of spying on consumers,
this time using TV commercials with embedded high pitch sounds.
Very simple idea of using current tech in a creative way – but the result is still bad to say the least…
Another great story about an inventor, who was robbed off his own invention by a corporation. Andreas Pavel, the inventor of proto-walkman, finally got the wrongs revised – after 25 years of litigation with Sony…
Patents and intellectual property rights should be reformed fundamentally (if not abolished completely), as now it seems an inventor is allowed to keep only what behemoth companies do not want.
PuzzlePhone, a modular phone project, supported by EU Horizon 2020 programme and Finnish agency for Innovation, has been established in Helsinki, Finland.
Oh, it is THE cable for Apple that won’t break [the bank] for the notorious problem of Apple: ever breaking lightening cables!
Company named Echo even offers a lifetime warranty for this IronWire cable! Quite a surprising offering, for the price AND for the type of product (expendable?)… I would even say I like the design of the cable too)
/me: waiting for an unbreakable high quality micro-usb cable (for android phones, but not for those closed platform devices of Cupertino)…
What is the name of a small, affordable, but capable PC?
I am speaking about things like Raspberry Pie, the PC that hasn’t yet (?) arrived, the Tango PC, and by ‘capable’ I mean ‘does everything that an ordinary user needs’ (that’s not overly scientific – but I’m a
doctor learning blogger, not an engineer’).
I am not sure, whether these computers are close to/ do the same as HTPC. For now, may I call a small, affordable and capable computer – a SMAC-PC?)
I think, it’s just another little computer, but it’s worth mentioning.
It’s marketed as “the first complete Windows 10 PC that fits into your pocket”, which could be true or not (or not that interesting).
The good thing is that developing smaller and affordable computers has become a trend nowadays. Again, I don’t know, whether Raspberry Pie has (or has not) been the spur of fruition in the blooming industry) Anyway, the revolution is here, and noticed even by MS, which claims Windows platform is coming to Raspberry Pie too.
Yesterday I attended local trashlab-like event, and liked it VERY much.
Basically, the main idea of the event was to see the internals of a desktop computer (which might be very interesting and useful for novice users who are afraid to open the desktop PC case), to get idea how it works (and how it might break) – and how it can be fixed and/or updated. And we also got opportunity to break some stuff too!) In the name of science and education, of course!)
