I Bought a Pair of Overalls and Now I Will Never Wear Anything Else 

Real cool, stylish photo by Claire Lower. My “look”—if I even possess such a thing—is best described as equal parts “teenage dirtbag” and “someone who is allergic to pants.” My wardrobe is comprised of jeans, jeans that have been cut into shorts, t-shirts, flimsy dresses, and not much else. But a new garment has edged its way into my wardrobe—and heart—and it has changed my life for the better. I’m talking about my brand new bib overalls , ...

The Virtual Life – Learning What It Means To Be Human In Prey

This week I'm talking all about Prey. No major spoilers but some minor ones about side quests. Talos-1, the space station Arkane's Prey takes place on, is a strikingly familiar place. If you've found yourself walking through Rapture or System Shock 2's Von Braun, a lot of Arkane's new RPG/action hybrid might feel like an old hat. All three games, after all, cover the same beats. You're being led through a fantastical environment filled with...

Google Assistant for the iPhone is now available... in the US

Assistant is now available on the iPhone GOOGLE HAS ANNOUNCED that Assistant is now available on the iPhone.  We knew this was coming, and Google confirmed that Assistant has arrived on iOS - in the US only, for now - during its I/O keynote on Wednesday.  This is good news for iPhone users, but probably won't be welcomed by Siri. However, Apple's digital helper needn't be too worried, as Assistant will be more limited than its Android count...

It's Time For The FCC To Actually Listen: The Vast Majority Of FCC Commenters Support Net Neutrality

The vast majority of consumers (from both parties) support net neutrality. This has been supported repeatedly not only by independent polls , but even the cable industry's own surveys . Yet for most of the last decade, ISP lobbyists and think tankers have managed to frame the subject in the media as a partisan one -- quite successfully using the country's deep political divisions to fuel disagreement and stall real progress. In reality, our...

Makers Of Payday 2 Donating DLC Profits To Help 2 YouTubers Fight Copyright Lawsuit

The landscape of YouTubers who do reviews or takes on video games, including Let's Plays, and their interactions with the game makers themselves is one that lacks any sort of norm or uniformity. Some game developers understand the value these YouTubers bring to their businesses, while some tend to go on the attack with copyright claims. Some developers appreciate an open and honest ecosystem of reviews, including snarky reviews, while other...

The first Vega-based Radeon card, the Radeon Vega Frontier Edition, will be available in late June. But probably not for you. Screenshot by Lori Grunin/CNET I'll spare you the presentation about datacenter technology (though its EPYC server architecture sounds pretty impressive), but AMD's financial analyst conference revealed availability news about several forthcoming products that you probably should care about.

There’s a good reason Shazam started forgetting song titles in April

In April 2017, people using the music-recognition app Shazam might have noticed the app behaving a little oddly. Usually the mobile app identifies songs by comparing sound input to the sound records in an online database . But last month, users in the UK saw the app experiencing a little hiccup as it tried to spit out song names, Adweek reports . It was as if Shazam just couldn’t remember. Shazam’s strange behavior wasn’t a glitch. It was p...

Making the Yarn Frisbee

The Epoxy I'm using is West System Resin. It's made for boat making and more than up for the task of a yarn frisbee. (Should frisbee be capitalized?! ) I think any epoxy resin should work well. I like the marine epoxies as they tend to cure fairly quickly. STIR well. 90% of all resin failures are due to a lack of proper stirring! (I made up that figure for extra drama) Once the resin is well mixed add a Mess Of Yarn* (1 MOY = 1 Frisbee's wo...

Google's New Mobile OS Will Have a Distinctly Non-Linux Hue

Google has been developing a new open source operating system called "Fuchsia" for smartphones, tablets and other devices, which could be unveiled as early as this summer. Little has been revealed about the new OS since it first came to light last year. However, new details surfaced last week, first reported by Ars Technica, and have been making the rounds. Fuchsia apparently will move Google away from its long association with Linux, accor...

“Genericide” assault to nullify the Google trademark fails

David Kravets/Arstechnica reader comments 54 What do a teleprompter, thermos, hoover, aspirin, and videotape have in common? They were once trademarked but lost their legally protected status because their names became too generic. Google won't be joining that  list  any time soon. Google defeated a "genericide" lawsuit Tuesday that claimed Google should no longer be trademarked because the word "google" is synonymous to the public with the...

You Will Feel Unclean Watching This Video of Bee Sex

GIF Image: Karla Thomspon. Gif via Hudson Hongo For those who came here expecting the uncut version of Bee Movie, you’re in the wrong place. This is a blog about some very unnerving bee-on-bee action—not some culmination of sexual tension between Renee Zellweger and Jerry Seinfeld’s characters in the 2007 cult movie . Apparently, long-horned bees copulating is pretty unsettling and uh, there’s video to prove it. I’m sorry. Arthropod macroph...

Saul Goodman Finally Makes His Debut

For two and a half seasons, we’ve been watching Better Call Saul, and we had yet to see the title character. Until this point, the show has been about Albuquerque elder attorney Jimmy McGill, with the occasional glimpse at Cinnabon manager Gene. We were starting to think Jimmy wouldn’t take the name until the very end of the series until last night. Saul Goodman formally introduced himself to the world, not as an ambulance-chasing lawyer, b...

Know When to Plant Your Garden With This Calculator 

How do you know when to plant your tomatoes and other warm-weather crops?For those of us in temperate climates, we do our planting in and around Mother’s Day. But depending on where you are, you could have actually started a few weeks ago—or you might still need to wait a bit. Here’s how to tell.

The Better Angels of Our Nature: Why Violence Has Declined (Unabridged) - Steven Pinker

Google Assistant might come to your iPhone this week

Reportedly, Photos will use Assistant to help you create coffee table books from your image library. This will seem familiar to the Mac crowd (Apple offered iPhoto books for years), but the AI would help out by automatically including relevant images. You wouldn't have to hand-pick snapshots if you didn't want to. At least one book option would cost $10. There's also talk of Assistant reaching GE's home appliances. You could ask your oven t...
