LG isn’t waiting until CES to reveal one of its high-end living room gadgets for 2018: it’s a 4K HDR projector. LG claims the new UHD projector is roughly half the size of competing 4K options on the market, many of which are “heavy, expensive, and difficult to install” according to the company. The HU80KA, by contrast, is being pitched as an “affordable yet premium device” that can output a 150-inch picture in any room of your house. That picture…

Online dating service eHarmony accused of ‘fake news’ after advert ban

Online dating service eHarmony has been accused of promoting “fake news” after it was banned from claiming it used a “scientifically proven matching system”. The advertising watchdog ruled that a billboard advert for the website was “misleading” because eHarmony had failed to prove it offered singletons a “significantly greater chance of finding lasting love”. The advert, which was displayed on a London Underground platform in July, said: “Step aside, fate. It’s time science had a go at love.” It added…

Amazon and Google heavily discounted their respective smart speakers over the busy holiday shopping season, resulting in devices being sold at a loss, according to a report stemming from analysts that spoke to Reuters.

Intel says performance impact of security updates not significant

(Reuters) – Intel Corp (INTC.O) said fixes for security issues in its microchips would not slow down computers, rebuffing concerns that the flaws found in microprocessors would significantly reduce performance. The performance impact of the recent security updates should not be significant and will be mitigated over time, Intel said late on Thursday, adding that Apple Inc (AAPL.O), Amazon.com Inc (AMZN.O), Google (GOOGL.O) and Microsoft Corp (MSFT.O) reported little to no performance impact from the security updates. intel.ly/2CHQ89E Intel shares…

TRS-80 Model 100 Goes Cellular

There are a few old products that have rabid fan bases, and the TRS-80 Model 100 is one of those. Depending on your point of view it’s either a small laptop or a large organizer, but in 1983 it was the ultimate computer on the go. The $1100 version had a whopping 8K of memory and the LCD screen showed 8 lines of 40 characters in glorious monochrome. One cool feature was the built-in 300 baud phone modem, which [Trammell…

txt.fyi and “antisocial media” / Boing Boing

Wired published an article about txt.fyi, the minimalist publishing “platform” I made: “Write something, hit Publish, and voilà: your deathless prose, online. “ But here’s the thing: txt.fyi has no social mechanics. None. No Like button, no Share button, no comments. No feed showing which posts are most popular. Each post has a tag telling search engines not to index it, so it won’t even show up on Google. The only way anyone will see it is if you send…

FCC releases final net neutrality repeal order, three weeks after vote

Enlarge / FCC Chairman Ajit Pai with his oversized coffee mug in November 2017. The Federal Communications Commission today released the final version of its net neutrality repeal order, three weeks after the December 14 vote to deregulate the broadband industry and eliminate the rules.

Blockchain could solve the next global humanitarian crisis

When one talks about blockchain, the focus is usually on the technological side or on how to apply it to business. Less common, however, is to hear about it in the context of, for example, delivering aid, assisting refugees or helping to achieve one of the Sustainable Development Goals. While humanity has never been in a better place, with so many people living under democratic governments and having access to basic services, there is still a lot of work to be…

How To Check If Your iPhone Is Being Slowed Down By Degraded Battery [Batterygate]

You would need to have been living in a big hole in a big desert in the middle of nowhere to have been able to miss the fact that Apple is currently taking a battering for the way it slows down certain older iPhones in an attempt to preserve their batteries and in some cases prevent them from shutting down completely. The fact that Apple’s reasons for doing this make plenty of sense hasn’t stopped the world from losing its…

Dell releases Ubuntu Linux-based XPS 13 Developer Edition (9370) laptop

If you want a computer pre-loaded with a Linux-based operating system, you can never go wrong with System76. After all, that company focuses entirely on Linux — it does not sell Windows machines at all. Hell, System76 even maintains its own Ubuntu-based operating system called Pop!_OS. By supporting that company, you are also supporting the overall Linux community. System76 is not the only company selling Linux-powered computers, however. Despite being a major Microsoft partner with Windows, Dell also sells desktops…

FCC Chairman Ajit Pai cancels CES appearance after reportedly receiving death threats

Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai will not be attending this year’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas after allegedly receiving death threats.

But CES hosts the FCC’s chairman annually thanks to the agency’s prime role in policies concerning consumer electronics devices, so his absence would be…

Edifier Luna e25 HD Bluetooth speaker review: Great sound, sci-fi looks, surprisingly affordable

Discovering that Edifier’s retro/modern-styled Luna e25 HD Bluetooth stereo speaker pair costs only $250 was a bit of a shocker. After two days of hands on without reading the press release, I figured they had to cost twice or perhaps three times that. They’re that good. They’re not portable, and they require a cable strung between them to ply their trade, but if you’re looking for something to blast sound about the living room, they’re the real deal. Edifier Luna…
