Using an RTL-SDR Dongle

You'll need to install some dependencies first, which we need to properly connect to the RTL-SDR stick. Open a terminal window, and copy-paste (or type) one line at a time, then press enter. Wait for all output to finish printing before entering a new line. Some steps might ask for a confirmation to download; often this requires typing 'Y' or 'y' and then enter. sudo apt-get install libusb-1.0-0-devsudo apt-get install git sudo apt-get inst...

iPad Pro clear example of Apple copying us, says Microsoft exec - CNET

 Technically Incorrect offers a slightly twisted take on the tech that's taken over our lives. A Microsoft clone? Or an almost Apple computer? Ariel Nunez/CNET Is Apple the chicken and Microsoft the egg?  Or is it vice versa?  I ask only because Microsoft has regained quite some confidence lately and it's begun insisting that Apple is merely watching what it does, admiring it and then less than subtly doing the same thing. As Apple unveiled...

This Week In Techdirt History: June 11th - 17th

Five Years Ago It was this week in 2012 that The Oatmeal wrote a level-headed criticism of FunnyJunk and received, in return, a somewhat scattershot threat of a defamation lawsuit . As a result, a whole lot of internet attention and ire was turned on one man, whose name we'd become very familiar with: Charles Carreon, who dug in his heels and tried to shut down The Oatmeal's fundraiser. Then he lashed out and accused Matt Inman of "instigat...

E3 2017’s brightest indie games, cataloged in words and video

reader comments 4 E3 2017 View more stories Record crowds, long lines, and hype-filled booths meant that much of Ars' E3 experience was spent not playing video games.

But there's nothing like a "no time limit" chance to sit and play, play, play. That's a big reason why we love the conference's indie-focused events. Hyp...

Review: Apple's 2017 10.5" iPad Pro stuns with 120Hz ProMotion display

Apple's new 10.5-inch iPad Pro takes a device that was already a best-in-class tablet and makes it even better, headlined by a larger display with a stunning 120Hz refresh rate. But with a $649 starting price, Apple cuts just a few too many corners for our liking, especially when compared to the value proposition of the recently released $329 9.7-inch iPad. Priced at $649, the new 10.5-inch iPad Pro comes in with a price tag $50 higher than...

Bill Nye will be back on Netflix to save the world with science

Unfortunately, Netflix won't be announcing its launch date until later this year.

If you'll recall, the show was criticized for not delving deep enough into the topics it's trying to discuss, with Nye frequently yelling his stance at the audience. Vox praised his atte...

‘Undercurrent’ isn’t a Matisyahu album, it’s a soundtrack for life

S ome men go on quests (see Bilbo Baggins, Jon Snow, Alan Quatermain, et al), and others go on journeys. In the latter category falls Matisyahu, the noted Jewish reggae/hip-hop beatboxer who’s recently taken live improv to another level in his newly reborn, clean-shaven, and literally less Orthodox incarnation. Having been recently freed from major label constraints, Matisyahu and his ace jam band have since put their full energy behind the...
