Inside NEO’s plans to get Microsoft .NET devs to build apps on its blockchain‎

The Bitcoin bear market has battered and bruised a multitude of blockchain startups. It’s also rendered terms like “streamlining,” “restructuring,” and “run out of money, shutting down” all too common. But somehow, a Matrix-themed cryptocurrency, NEO, is hiring. The second iteration of NEO DevCon took place in Seattle over the weekend. The most notable announcement was the opening of a new office in the famously tech-orientated Washington capital. It’s to be spearheaded by John deVadoss, former director of engineering for Microsoft‘s .NET framework. He also served as general manager of Microsoft Digital, and oversaw the majority of its product lifecycle.… This story continues at The Next WebOr just read more coverage about: Microsoft

Full moon patents: Disney’s acrobatic robots and Ford’s drive-by drone deliveries‎

Ugh, the Gregorian calendar is so boring. That’s why we’re disrupting monthly series with a lunar cycle-based series about the best patents of the last synodic month, picked by the PatentYogi team. Get ready when that moon gets gibbous, y’all. This February-ish roundup lands on the beautiful Snow Moon! Since my last post, the US patent office issued over 33,041 patents and published over 32,210 patent applications. Each patent asset adds a little something new to the human knowledge base. As I cannot list all these patent assets here, the PatentYogi team and I have selected the five most interesting patent assets.… This story continues at The Next Web

Here are the 5 hottest startups in the UK‎

By Marta Dawydzik and Andrea Hak In recent months when you heard about the UK there’s a 99 percent chance it was about Brexit (and a 1 percent chance it was about Theresa May’s painfully awkward dance moves). However, the shaky negotiations and a very uncertain future (both economically and politically) have not stopped the UK’s startups from growing. In fact, despite the instability, the country saw an influx of £1.4billion from VC investments in the third quarter of 2018 (up  £9 million from the year before). Although 85 percent of startup founders voted against Brexit, nearly three in four… This story continues at The Next Web

Our relationship with dick pics is complicated‎

Why do men send dick pics? Some research and popular commentary suggests it’s for reasons of narcissism and over-confidence. Some men no doubt send them in the hopes of receiving a nude photo in kind, or because they genuinely believe that’s what women desire. Dick pics are widely considered a form of technology-facilitated sexual violence, misogynistic, and a sign of sexual pathology in the form of flashing or exhibitionism (disgraced US congressman Anthony Weiner comes to mind here). However, research by myself and Tinonee Pym has uncovered a more complicated picture. Looking at social media, digital news articles, comics, and… This story continues at The Next Web

Why you should be excited for foldable phones — and why you shoudn’t‎

It’s been eight years since Samsung first debuted a prototype of a foldable smartphone, and the company finally revealed its finished product, the Galaxy Fold, at its Unpacked event last night. It looks beautiful, packs top-shelf hardware components, and some clever ideas to create a compelling dual-display experience – but you won’t be able to get your hands on it until the end of April. That means you have a couple of months to think about whether you want to spend roughly $2,000 on this baby. We thought it might be helpful to list some of the pros and cons… This story continues at The Next Web

How to stop Facebook from tracking your location‎

Welcome to TNW Basics, a collection of tips, guides, and advice on how to easily get the most out of your gadgets, apps, and connected services. Facebook is notorious for capturing user data to create profiles that advertisers can target – and that includes the location data from your phone. If that makes you uncomfortable, you can stop the Facebook mobile app from tracking your location completely, or allow it to do so only when you’re using the app. The company has rolled out new location control for Android app users, and it’s sending an alert to users – both… This story continues at The Next WebOr just read more coverage about: Facebook
