Sometimes, there’s such a thing as being too forward-thinking. Take MEVU and its prototype payment bracelet as an example: the wrist-worn Bluetooth wallet lets you pay with Bitcoin using only air gestures. Sounds cool, right? In many ways, it is. As…
As you settle down to watch the Opening Day night games tonight, you probably won’t be thinking about the massive array of lights that illuminate the game. But that blinding artificial sunlight was once a technological phenomenon that stunned fans and had the police threatening to shut it down.

Counterculture icon Timothy Leary was a longtime advocate of drug use as a way to expand minds. "Turn on, tune in, drop out," became one of his most popular phrases in the 1960s. But in 1987 Leary predicted that people of the 21st century wouldn’t need "old fashioned" drugs anymore. Instead, we’d all be using "brain radios" to alter consciousness.
Capture that magical time when the light is just right
We're back into the swing of things again with another weekly photo contest, and this week we're actually going to go with a similar topic to last week. Going through the submissions in our "skylines" contest, we saw quite a few that also took place at sunrise or sunset. Building on that, we're going to go with the prompt "sunset" this week (sunrises are okay, too!). Taking great pictures in the low light of a sunset or sunrise can be difficult, but we're excited to see the entires to this one.
We'll be picking out one winner this week, and that lucky photographer will receive a BRAVEN 570 Portable Wireless Bluetooth Speaker, in your choice of color.
Entering is easy. Just drop your entry in a forums post at the link below. Tell us what Android you used to get the picture, and any back story you want to add to it. We'll pick a winner Tuesday (November 26) night at 11:59 PM ET, and announce them on the blog with next Wednesday's contest.
President Obama on Thursday asked Congress to hold off on imposing any new economic sanctions on Iran to give negotiators more time to forge a deal on Tehran’s nuclear program.
“My message to Congress has been that let’s see if this short-term, phase-one deal can be completed to our satisfaction,” Obama told reporters during a White House briefing.
“Let’s test how willing they are to actually resolve this diplomatically and peacefully,” he said.
Reuters describes it as “the most direct appeal yet for more time to pursue a diplomatic deal with Iran.”
Last weekend, negotiators in Geneva came close to a deal, but were unable to get a final agreement. They plan to meet again with Iranian representatives next week.
The Washington Post says:
“[The] diplomatic near miss has provoked a storm of protest from Israel and criticism from Republicans and some Democrats, who say the White House plans to unravel the sanctions program in return for concessions that will barely slow Iran’s march to a nuclear weapon.”
Working hard in the Big Apple, Victoria Justice filmed scenes for her brand new flick, “Eye Candy” in East Village today (November 14).
Casual yet sexy bundled up for the cold set, the 20-year-old wore a green winter coat over a dark teal shirt, sporting gray skinny jeans and lace-up boots.
Based on the book by R.L. Stine, the “Victorious” starlet stars as the flick’s main character.
Victoria “plays Lindy, a reclusive hacker who runs a blog which exposes everything from suspected killers to terrorist plots. After she’s convinced by her roommate to get into online dating, she’s targeted by a dangerous cyberstalker who may be one of the guys who are courting her. When things take a deadly turn, she joins forces with the cyber-crime unit of the city to track down the killer.”
Sony's official app is not yet updated for KitKat, but your equipment still works fine
Folks with a Sony Cyber-shot QX lens camera and a Nexus 5 (or KitKat in an unofficial way on other phones) are finding out the hard way that Sony's PlayMemories Mobile application isn't working. It will connect, but it then immediately crashes — which isn't very helpful when you want to take some pictures with a better camera. Sony suggests that this might be possible right in the app description.
[Recommended operating environment]
OS version: Android 2.3 – 4.3
This application is not guaranteed to work on all Smartphones and Tablets.
The good news is there is an easy and free fix with the Camera 360 application. Not only that, but you'll also have a ton of great features that work right with your QX camera, including some very nicely done live effects. There is a reason Camera 360 has over 320,000 five-star ratings in Google Play. It's also my go-to camera app anytime I'm shooting with the QX-10 I have here.
We imagine that Sony will get things sorted in short order, but in the meantime your gear still will work as well (or better) than it ever did. Grab Camera 360 Ultimate from the Google Play link above.
Giving fans and customers a view of what she has “Down Under,” Burlesque model Dita Von Teese showed off her new lingerie collection at Myer in Melbourne, Australia today (November 6).
Stunning and seductive in a nighttime-inspired stringy dress, the 41-year-old wore lacy arm wraps, puffy heels, and she flirted with the camera during her photo shoot.
Dita tweeted about the event, writing, “Thank you to everyone who came out to @Myer_MyStore Melbourne today in support of my lingerie launch, I enjoyed meeting you so much. Xx.”
She followed up her happy comment with another one, posting, “Loved my time with fans who came to @Myer_MyStore yesterday! So many glamorous gals…my Australian Glambassadors! Keep up the good work!”
