Need an existential reason for ditching Alexa? Here are a few

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND


Alexa’s creepy laugh is far from the most worrying thing about her. This is despite the fact that Amazon’s digital assistant – which allows users to access the internet and control personal organization tools simply by speaking to the device – has been reported to spontaneously chuckle to herself. We shouldn’t be too concerned about her going rogue and turning on us either – a Terminator-style takeover by artificial intelligence doesn’t seem imminent. But Alexa does pose one immediate threat. Rather than worrying about AI becoming more human, we should fear ourselves becoming more artificial by outsourcing important actions and…

2018 iPhones to use Intel modems exclusively, ditching Qualcomm: KGI

Rumors about the 2018 iPhone models keep growing head of the official announcement later this year, thanks to Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities. Back in November last year he said that the 2018 iPhone models will come with a faster Intel XMM 7560 modem and Qualcomm SDX 20 LTE Cat. 18 Modem with support for 4×4 MIMO technology.  He has also said that 70%-80% of the modem chips for 2018 iPhone models will come from Intel and the remaining will use Qualcomm modems. Now in the latest research note KGI reports that Apple will use Intel modems for this year’s iPhones exclusively, amidst Apple’s ongoing legal battles with Qualcomm. He also said that Intel can meet Apple’s technical requirements and offers more competitive prices compared to Qualcomm. Further, unlike previous modems, Intel’s XMM 7560 modem has support for both GSM and CDMA, so there might be a single iPhone model that might work across all the four major U.S. carriers – AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, and Sprint, instead of two models.

KGI also says there there is a risk that Intel may not …

By ditching usernames, OKCupid is removing a crucial protective barrier

Days after deleting an OKCupid profile that included personal information, Reddit user Drinkscocoaandreads logged onto Facebook to find an unpleasant surprise. “I had like three guys find me on Facebook within two days, screaming at me for leaving mid-conversation/not ever acknowledging their initial message,” the Redditor wrote in a thread about OKCupid. “One of them also added a few of my friends before I figured out what was happening and got him blocked.”

Drinkscocoaandreads is one of many Reddit users reacting to OKCupid’s recent announcement that it will ditch usernames in favor of a real-name policy. “It’s because, like the recent goodbye we said to AIM screen names, it’s time to keep up with the times,” OKCupid explained. “We’ve…
