drones-masterIf you’re a hobbyist looking to get into drone flying for fun, maybe just to snap some photos and shoot some video, you might want to do some research on places where you are allowed to fly. If you don’t, you could end up like drone film company SkyPan who could be facing a fine of a whopping $1.9 million for allegedly operating in airspaces without proper authorization.

The fine is being proposed by the FAA who wrote, “Between March 21, 2012, and Dec. 15, 2014, SkyPan conducted 65 unauthorized operations in some of our most congested airspace and heavily populated cities, violating airspace regulations and various operating rules, the FAA alleges. These operations were illegal and not without risk.” Read full post →FAA Slaps Drone Film Company With Proposed $1.9 Million Fine

geekbench_tsmc_samsung_a9As some of you guys might have heard, it was recently discovered that the A9 chipset found in Apple’s new iPhones is made by both Samsung and TSMC. This means that there will be some chipsets made by Samsung, and some made by TSMC. This shouldn’t really be an issue and so far most benchmarks don’t show that there is too much of a different.

At least this was until recently where a Geekbench 3 benchmark made its way on Reddit (via MacRumors), in which it shows an iPhone with the A9 made by TSMC lasting almost 2 hours longer than the one made by Samsung. As you can see in the screenshot above, the TSMC-made A9 clocks in at 7 hours 50 minutes, versus the Samsung-made A9 which clocks 6 hours and 5 minutes.

ios_9_adoptionTowards the end of September and last we checked, iOS 9’s adoption was sitting at around 35%. This is a pretty respectable figure when you consider that it outpaced its predecessor, iOS 8 in 2014. However according to the latest numbers officially released by Apple, it would seem that iOS 9 has since jumped to 57%.

While iOS 9 has been growing at a very steady pace, a leap by over 20% is certainly questionable. However if you suspect that there might be some cheating going on, there isn’t. Instead it has been suggested that the leap to 57% is courtesy of the new iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, both of which has sold pretty well since its release. Read full post →iOS 9 Adoption Jumps To 57%

Imagine a world where if you wanted to go jogging, you could 3D print a pair of jogging shoes. Or if you wanted to go hiking, you could 3D print a pair of hiking boots. Imagine such a service that could be offered at hotels and resorts where guests will no longer have to worry about what kind of shoes to pack.

That seems to be a future that Adidas is envisioning, where users will be able to 3D print the right shoe for the right moment. This future is dubbed Futurecraft 3D and it exists more as a proof of concept for now as opposed to being an actual thing. However given the kind of things we’ve seen 3D printers can do, we wouldn’t be surprised if such a service would be offered in the future.

facebook reactionsYou see something on Facebook that you think is funny, so you “Like” it. You see someone get married, you “Like” that event. You see a post about something going on in a part of the world, you’re upset and you want to acknowledge that so you “Like” it. It does seem like the “Like” feature in Facebook is rather limited in terms of what it can convey.

Now previously we had heard Facebook was planning a “Dislike” button that would allow users to show that a post or story upset them. This makes it more dynamic, but now according to a report from Engadget, it could be much more than that. According to Engadget, Facebook is said to be close to launching “Reactions”.

linkedin-hackFrom time to time you might notice a new friend request pop up on Facebook, or you might see a new follower on Instagram or Twitter, or someone who wants to connect with you on LinkedIn. Sometimes these are spam accounts used to send you advertisements for all kinds of junk, but recently it has been discovered that some fake LinkedIn profiles could be used to scout potential hacking targets.

According to a report by Dell SecureWorks, they discovered a host of fake LinkedIn profiles. Their report also notes that the profiles are grouped into developed personas and supporting personas, thus giving the illusion that these might be actual people on LinkedIn who might want to connect with you genuinely.
