Savvy shoppers are already preparing to secure the best Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals. But, many remain oblivious to devious cybercriminals that are hoping to use the excitement and thirst for massive sales to trick unsuspecting users into handing over their details. Many will remember David Baggett as the co-founder of ITA Software that was sold to Google in 2010 for 700 million. But the cybersecurity expert and Inky CEO, recently shared e

So master the tool that‘s been setting the digital photography pace this century with the Complete Photoshop Mastery Bundle. It‘s on sale now for just 29 (an over 90 percent savings) from TNW Deals.
AI has the power to make decisions on our behalf and the world is getting excited. But there‘s always that nagging question: Who will be the servant and who will be the master?Should we approach AI from a completely different angle? Should we actually hand over control at all and let the AI make its own decisions? Well, to an extent, in some circumstances, we‘re going to have to let go of the reins. AI with no decision-making power re
It‘s also more than just a 10th anniversary faceover for the trailblazing device. It‘s a top-to-bottom overhaul with a bigger screen, faster processors and sensors, improved security...the works. But at 1,000 a pop and with many pre-orders still backlogged, most of us won‘t be getting our hands on one any time soon. That is, unless your friends at TNW come through and you win this awesome iPhone X Giveaway contest.
The concept of ‘social TV‘ first came to widespread prominence in 2010 as people embraced sharing their wild and wonderful opinions about TV experiences on social media. That same year, MIT Technology Review named the phenomenon in its top ten ‘breakthrough technologies‘. Fast forward to 2017 and social TV is taking on a much different meaning, especially in light of the marquee launch of Facebook‘s new platform for
We‘d previously written an opinion piece titled ‘The case for an artificially intelligent god.‘ This is our counterpoint to that. It‘s a strange time to be a technology journalist. Somehow artificial intelligence has grown from buzzword to a religion, literally. For tech enthusiasts, it can often be more comfortable to wrap our heads around ideas like algorithms and neural networks than religion and faith. Yet here we are,
Internet addicts in Latin America can get a ‘detox‘ treatment at Instituto Deletein Brazil, a center focused on treating cellular and internet addictions. For many of us, our cell phone is an extension of our hand. Whether that‘s healthy or not remains in how that affects our lives - but for many people, it‘s the cause of arguments, conflicts and could even result in losing a job. The addiction is related to nomophobia, jo
Global healthcare is on the rise. ‘The world‘s major regions are expected to see healthcare spending increases ranging from 2.4% to 7.5% between 2015 and 2020,‘ according Deloitte‘s 2017 Global Healthcare Sector Outlook. To overcome this, cities across the world are working hard to incorporate cutting edge technologies in innovative ways that reduce their healthcare expenses. Let‘s explore a city that‘s spent t
Amazon yesterday announced its ONNX-MXNet package to import Open Neural Network Exchange (ONNX) deep learning models into Apache MXNet, signifying the company is on-board with Facebook and Microsoft in efforts to open-source AI. With the ONNX-MXNet Python package, developers running models based on open-source ONNX will be able to run them on Apache MXNet. Basically, this allows AI developers to keep models but switch networks, as opposed to star
With two weeks left until he turned thirty, Marc Khlbrugge made a daunting realization - no, not that his twenties were almost over. He had failed to achieve his goal of seeing his name in Forbes‘ 30 under 30 list. Not content to merely try for Fortune‘s consolation prize 40 under 40 awards, he instead decided to launch his own list of who‘s who, called (what else?) 100 under 100. 100 under 100 is perhaps the most attainable &ls
This Thanksgiving, you‘ll probably hear someone say that the chemical tryptophan that‘s found in turkey makes them sleepy. Although this holiday delicacy does include an amino acid that can help you relax, it‘s not the only food that contains tryptophan. Cheddar cheese has a lot more of the chemical than turkey, but you never hear your aunt saying she needs a nap after eating a grilled cheese. According to experts, turkey doesn&
If you‘ve been holding out to get Apple‘s HomePod as a holiday present, we‘ve got some bad news for you: the company has delayed the speaker until next year. The speaker was originally due in December. In a statement to CNBC, Apple said: ‘We can‘t wait for people to experience HomePod, Apple‘s breakthrough wireless speaker for the home, but we need a little more time before it‘s ready for our customers. W
While it is fairly clear why many retail and consumer-oriented companies need to worry about utilizing social media, even atypical consumer-oriented companies, such as insurance firms, need to maintain a social media presence. Recently, a wave of ‘insurtech,‘ or insurance technology, companies have launched in order to combine automation technology with the various angles of the insurance sector. One of these firms, InsuranceSocial.Me

Best of all, part or all of this bundle can be yours for literally any price you want to pay.
When someone pitched me the Fabriq Chorus last month, I couldn‘t help but think it was the worst-possible time to release an Alexa-enabled smart speaker. Amazon had just released a swathe of compelling and intriguing new Echo devices, all benefiting from the name-recognition of its maker. Who would care about a brand-new device from a manufacturer few people had actually heard of? But out of interest, I accepted the offer of a review unit.
Huawei has been busted secretly installing bloatware on users‘ phones without ever notifying them or asking for their consent. A number of Huawei customers have reported their phones have suddenly been equipped with GoPro‘s Quik video editing app, Dutch outlet Android Planet reports. According to miffed users, Quik showed up on their handsets out of nowhere earlier this week. A spokesperson for Huawei Netherlands has confirmed the iss

Following months of cagey quarrels within the Bitcoin community over a controversial software update known as Segwit2X, the scheduled update was abruptly suspended last week, after a number of leading cryptocurrency entrepreneurs decided to withdraw their support for the initiative. But despite this development, a small portion of wayward miners vowed to go ahead with the cancelled hard fork regardless and this is finally happening today. This i
Our online identities are hidden behind the walled gardens of centralized services. Blockchain provides an alternative that will help us regain control and ownership of our digital lives.
It looks like, in the last few months, Bitcoin has made friends with forking. When I wrote about Bitcoin forking the last time, I didn‘t expect there would be this many so soon. But hey, here we are, trying to make sense of what the hell is happening in the crypto world. With this article, I try to put everything that has happened since Bitcoin Cash in a proper order that would become anyone‘s go-to article for learning about Bitcoin
You might be more familiar with Chrome, Firefox, and Opera than UC Browser, but the Chinese Android app has clocked more than half a billion downloads on Google Play. Sadly, you might now learn the name only because it‘s been removed from the Play store. When contacted about booting UCWeb‘s browser, Google told the Economic Times that it removes apps that violate its policies that are designed to provide ‘a safe and positive exp
We all know something is awfully wrong with the new Dropbox design, a design Dropbox says it‘s the biggest change to the Dropbox brand in their 10-year history (might not necessarily be the best). In this post, I attempt to simplify where Dropbox went wrong and why all the noise you‘ve been hearing is something they should look into. What isdesign? In simple terms, design is all about reducing the friction between users and their goal
Just when the audience at Tesla‘s Semi launch though the event was over, the company rolled out quite the surprise: a sleek red Roadster. The convertible 2+2 seater manages a top speed greater than 400km/h, runs for over 1,000km on a single charge (that‘s enough to drive from Los Angeles to San Francisco and back), and manages 0-60mph in 1.9 seconds making it the first production car to hit that rate of acceleration. It can go from 0
Back in 1985, Back to the Future and The Goonies arrived in cinemas. This was also the year that Microsoft released the first version of Excel. However, we are now living in a mobile-first digital world, and this era of hyper-change is showing no signs of slowing down. Over thirty years later it can feel like some of those spreadsheets are still in use. Escaping the shackles of ‘that‘s the way we‘ve always done it‘ is prev
