Intel 'Compute Stick' PC-Over-HDMI Dongle Launched, Tested

1 Comment
MojoKid writes: Intel has officially announced the availability of their Compute Stick HDMI dongle, and has lifted the embargo on early tests with the device. The Compute Stick is essentially a fully-functional, low-power, Atom-based system with memory, storage, and an OS, crammed into a dongle about 10cm long. There will initially be two compute sticks made available: one running Windows (model STCK1A32WFC) and another running Ubuntu (model STCK1A8LFC). The Windows 8.1 version of the Compute Stick is packing an Intel Atom Z3735F processor, with a single-channel of 2GB of DDR3L-1333 RAM and 32GB of internal storage, though out of the box only 19.2GB is usable. The Ubuntu version of the Compute Stick has as a similar CPU, but is packing only 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage. All sticks have USB and MicroSD expansion capability. It doesn't burn through any benchmarks, but for multi-media playback, basic computing tasks, web browsing, HD video, or remote access, the Compute Stick has enough muscle to get the job done, and it's cheap, too: $99 — $149.

Have you ever had a search engine provide your cell service? You will.

Renowned not-evil search engine company Google just formally announced its long-rumoured MVNO: Google Fi.

Prices start at $20 for unlimited domestic talk and text, unlimited international texts, low-cost international calls, wi-fi tethering, coverage in 120+ countries, and data rates of $10 per 1GB, no contract required. You only pay for what you use. Nexus 6 owners get first crack at it.

If you're not keen on a company likely datamining the hell out of your phone, don't sweat it, it's probably already happened to you, and AT&T has been decidedly evil for years anyway.

ah now we have the pricing information.

for my household, I would not save compared to ting. On ting, we have 3 devices for a base rate of $18/month, and then typically use <500 minutes, <1000 texts and <500MB for a total rate before taxes of $44. On Fi, we'd have a base rate of $60 before using any data.

So while the perks like dual GSM/CDMA and international would occasionally be nice, I'll be sticking with ting for now.

But I'll still hope that this puts some price pressure on ting. A good start would be going essentially to bill-per-(mega/giga)byte or rolling over unused megabytes, which would save us on average a few bucks a month---plus stop us worrying about going over 500 megs in a month, the point at which the next price tier kicks in for $7 more.

German Court Rules Adblock Plus Is Legal

1 Comment
An anonymous reader writes: Following a four-month trial, a German court in Hamburg has ruled that the practice of blocking advertising is perfectly legitimate. Germany-based Eyeo, the company that owns Adblock Plus, has won a case against German publishers Zeit Online and Handelsblatt. These companies operate Zeit.de, Handelsblatt.com, and Wiwo.de. Their lawsuit, filed on December 3, charged that Adblock Plus should not be allowed to block ads on their websites. While the decision is undoubtedly a big win for users today, it could also set a precedent for future lawsuits against Adblock Plus and any other tool that offers similar functions. The German court has essentially declared that users are legally allowed to control what happens on their screens and on their computers while they browse the Web.

Direct Message Anyone on Twitter Now, Even if They Don’t Follow You

1 Comment and 2 Shares

As it was, for Twitter accounts that are not verified, you could not send them a direct message (DM) unless that specific account followed you. In turn, no one could message you unless you followed them. Now, Twitter has removed these restrictions, allowing anyone and everyone to share DMs. 

To help promote open communication, Twitter thinks allowing everyone to send DMs to people they may not even know is completely appropriate. Of course, this change can be toggled on and off in your settings, allowing you to restrict people’s ability to send you a DM. From what I see in the settings menu, either you allow everyone to message you, or just the people you follow and they follow back to message.

Twitter___Settings

Here is a breakdown of exactly what is new.

What’s New

  • A setting that allows you to receive Direct Messages from anyone, even if you don’t follow them. To change your settings follow these instructions.
  • Updated messaging rules so you can reply to anyone who sends you a Direct Message, regardless of whether or not that person follows you.
  • A new Direct Message button on profile pages on Android and iPhone. You’ll see it on the profiles of people you can send Direct Messages to.

What do you think of these changes? Good move? Dumb move?

if you can't enable the "don't have a twitter account at all" preference, I guess there's a new checkbox you'd better go toggle off.
