Gregg Lantz2,962Tomorrow is a taxing day here in the United States. You get to decide if you want to buy Glass (sorry IRS). If you're not sure and would like to know what others are saying, add this circle.  You'll be able to look at public posts from people that use Glass and people that purchased Glass and put it on the shelf while software was being developed. You'll get both sides of the story. Hopefully this circle will help make the decision process a little easier. Don't forget to post your questions with #askanexplorer  so  people can chime in and help answer your questions. #glassexplorers   #throughglass   #sharedcircles   #circleshare   #wearables   #wearabletech   #glasswaiters  2014-04-14 21:08:59425004CC G+

Nice, I was hoping they'd do something like this. I've bought four or five pairs of Warby Parkers now specifically because their try on program makes it so easy to decide. This might get me to trade in my modded prescription frames for the real deal.

There is some evidence that the Heartbleed bug may not be quite as serious for the IT world as initially thought. CloudFlare has been researching the bug and have not been able to compromise the private certificate key as of yet, at least under normal circumstances. You'd have to DDoS or otherwise force a HTTPd service restart and by some luck snatch the private key while it's still in a memory range accessible to the buffer overflow exploit. That's what their research is showing thus far, anyway.

Confused by what all this Heartbleed nonsense is about? Here's the most concise and approachable explanation of the bug I've seen yet.

Apple is pushing a hotfix for an extremely serious SSL/TLS bug in iOS 7 and OS X. It remains unclear how far back it goes, but is confirmed in OS X 10.9, iOS 7 and at least iOS 6.1. This is bad. This is really bad.

The bug allows anyone with a certificate identifying themselves as a "trusted CA" (certificate authority; think Verisign, GeoTrust, etc.) to access encrypted communications as if they had never been encrypted at all by leveraging so called Man-in-the-Middle (MITM) attacks. Basically, Apple has been accepting root certs on face value and not performing the fundamental verification steps necessary to prove that they're authentic and valid.

All because of bracket-less conditionals and an errant 'goto fail' line. On the upside, I now have a real example of why bracket-less conditionals are a horrible thing to do next time code standards comes up!... more »

Video is a really tough thing to do right on the 'net. So many device limitations and bandwidth considerations, unpredictable network conditions, and not to mention the computational and financial costs of transcoding are a challenge in their own right. Yet everyone expects an instant experience with no buffering and pristine quality. Nobody's got it perfectly sorted out yet, but here's how Dropbox is approaching things.

Stress sucks. It can affect your body and mind.

"Previous research has shown that stress can even hinder our ability to remember. But these studies have typically focused on one stress at a time. What happens when we face multiple stresses?"

How is your stress level?

A year on, Steam for Linux now boasts over 500 titles.

From 50 launch titles to over 500, Steam for Linux has seen a 900% growth in its gaming catalogue since its official release in February 2013. With Steam OS just around the corner, Linux gamers have an even bigger year ahead of them.

EFF filed suit against the Ethiopian government today on behalf of an American who found secret spyware on his computer. In this case, we have clear evidence of a foreign government secretly infiltrating an American's digital communications -- listening to his Skype calls, and obtaining access to a wide swath of his private life. U.S. laws protect Americans from this type of unauthorized electronic spying, regardless of who is responsible.

Open source software has the benefit and curse of being agnostic. It's free and open for anyone to use, for good or for evil, for better or for worse. We don't get to chose who uses it or for what. That's the only way this sort of stuff can work.

So it didn't come as a complete shock to me this morning when I woke up to a screenshot of the software I help build in the latest Snowden leak. Apparently the GCHQ (the UK's equivalent of the NSA) used our software to visualize traffic they intercepted of people accessing various Internet reasons, such as Wikileaks. Obviously, that's a pretty shitty thing to do and not something I, our organization or our community condone. It's counter to everything we stand for, quite frankly. But we don't get a say in these sorts of things.

What's kind of fascinating about this is how counter-culture a use it is... more »

Looks like World of Warcraft's character boost service will cost $60 out of the gate, if today's accidental peak at things is any indication. It's not cheap, but I don't think that's entirely a move out of greed — just imagine a game full of max level characters who have no idea how to play their class. Oh, wait...

Getting settled back in here at home after a fantastic week with the Ushahidi team on retreat in Bellagio, Italy. It was my first time in Italy and it certainly didn't disappoint. Also, I went skiing for the first time in my life and didn't break anything. So that was pretty great.

Google is reportedly selling Motorola to Lenovo for ~$3 billion. I'm definitely disappointed to see this and I hope it isn't true. Coupled with the rumor that Google will be killing off it's Nexus line after this iteration means Google will no longer be in the mobile hardware game. That's bad news in my opinion. They've done a great job of forcing the market to up it's game with their hardware offerings.

I also really respect the direction the new Motorola has taken with it's ethos and products. I don't know if that would will change under Lenovo, but I'd rather see it continue to develop under Google's wing. Sad that we'd be losing a landmark US company of over 80 years, too.

My money is on this deal not including any patents, in any case. Google said that was the only reason they were buying Motorola in the first place,... more »

How I Lost My $50,000 Twitter Username Scary story, and sadly not unique or surprising. Naoki does an admirable job of turning this into a lesson for readers though by pointing how what he should have done differently; i.e. always use two-factor auth on any service that offers it, use your Gmail address as your point of contact with registrars to avoid hacks, and so on.

I've never been an early riser but I've always been envious of people who are. I've always tended to be a night-owl. I read somewhere that our brains are physically wired differently, and that some people just aren't built to be early risers. Worth a try, though!

From the page: "Do you have an Android phone with Facebook installed? Like most people, I blindly clicked "accept" when prompted for new permissions on Facebook's Android App update today (Jan 27). Something caught my eye, and after I cancelled the update, I look a screenshot. I figured maybe other people might be interested in what they agreed to earlier today if they updated..."

I can’t think of a legitimate reason why Facebook would need access to your text messages unless they intend on building a Hangouts-style unified inbox, which is something that really doesn't interest me. I'd like to give them the benefit of the doubt that they'll be aggregating content for advertising, but they haven't commented on the new permissions as of yet.

I've released the Yahoo! Pipes and IFTTT recipes I use for my auto-sharing process. I wrote about these last week and promised I'd release them after dogfooding for a bit. I haven't been able to break them yet, so here you are!

- I publish on Google+
- Friends+Me picks up this content and posts it to my blog on Tumblr.
- If I want that content to be shared outward to Twitter, Facebook, App.net and elsewhere, I add my magic trigger tag "#buffer".
- My Yahoo! Pipes grab these posts from the API, cleans them up and prepares them for sharing.

To the untrained eye, the Grand Canyon might just look like one big hole in the ground. But to some scientists, the American Southwest's iconic gorge is increasingly looking like several ancient canyons of different ages, stitched together by erosion that occurred about six million years ago, and subsequently sculpted into its modern form.

Toying around with it for a few days, I can safely say that Steam In-Home Streaming is a game changer. One mammoth gaming rig in my office that can run all of my games on ultra settings and I'm set. I can play it all from the comfort of my sofa or bed on my ultrabook and not sacrifice any visual quality or be concerned about performance.

As big of a fan of the Steambox concept as I am, I'd love it if Valve produced a lightweight, Chromecast-like dongle that allowed me to do in-home streaming and nothing more. Maybe a few USB ports for a keyboard and mouse or gamepads, and/or Bluetooth for wireless. That would be amazing.

Oh, I'm also a fan of FINALLY being able to sign on to Steam from multiple machines simultaneously. That was long overdue.

"The choice is not whether to allow the NSA to spy. The choice is between a communications infrastructure that is vulnerable to attack at its core and one that, by default, is intrinsically secure for its users. Every country, including our own, must give intelligence and law-enforcement authorities the means to pursue terrorists and criminals, but we can do so without fundamentally undermining the security that enables commerce, entertainment, personal communication, and other aspects of 21st-century life. We urge the US government to reject society-wide surveillance and the subversion of security technology, to adopt state-of-the-art, privacy-preserving technology, and to ensure that new policies, guided by enunciated principles, support human rights, trustworthy commerce, and technical innovation."
