New Future US Site Is Powered By Super Users Culled From Social

first_imgSuper users are slated to create content for the Web sites, answer user questions about technology and give real time feedback on content created for MaximumPC.com and Maximumtech.com. Once Maximumtech.com gains a solid audience, Phillips will launch the 300 super user initiative in that property.Expecting about 10,000 responses to this inquiry, staff will then choose 300 readers to be part of this “inner circle”. Entry includes a badge for their Facebook pages so other readers can reach directly out to them, ability to upload photos to the MaximumPC.com site and Facebook pages, discounts, coupons and first chances to purchase merchandise from the sites.Editorial staff will launch the MaximumPC.com super user search in June, with Maximumtech.com following as soon as adequate audience numbers are gained. Maximumtech.com is picking up where MaximumTech leaves off. Phillips says that the print property is higher-end, full of data entry points and photography, and aimed at “the hardcore tech enthusiast”. Maximumtech.com is positioned for early adopters, who are more confused about technology than excited by it. Maximumtech.com will not only introduce new products, but also explain exactly what to do with them. With an outpour of technology reaching into virtually every aspect of daily life, even the most technologically stinted folks are finding themselves with the newest gadgets and wondering, “What exactly do I do with this?”Maximumtech.com is hoping to answer some of these questions. The Web site is a spin-off of the quarterly print MaximumTech, which was launched in August 2010. The print MaximumTech is newsstand only, and has a sell through of 36 percent on 120,000 issues released with each new edition. A property of Future US, MaximumTech is poised to ramp up to six print issues in 2012, with monthly issues set for 2013.Currently, Maximumtech.com has a full-time editorial staff of two, a features editor and a news editor. MaximumPC.com and Maclife.com writers will contribute to Maximumtech.com, and freelancers are also used to create content. Jon Phillips, editorial director, is also tapping into their successful social media streams (MaximumPC.com currently has 35,000 Facebook fans and 14,000 Twitter followers) to create a group of 300 “super users” to contribute to the sites. Starting with MaximumPC.com, an invitation to fill out a survey will be sent out on the Web site, Facebook and Twitter pages. The survey will include a brief essay question concerning why readers would want to become “super users”, what kind of equipment they’re interested in and what they’d like to cover. center_img Phillips says that Web sites like Engadget.com do an adequate job of covering the rumor and technology news mill, but lack the guidance that new consumers need. He also believes that, “People are starting to tire of ‘three and a half stars’ from CNET[.com].” To that end, Maximumtech.com will offer accurate ratings of products, as well as guidance on whether to buy a technology product now or if the consumer should wait for the next version to be released.Set to be advertisement-supported, Toshiba has already signed on, and other deals are in the works. After the “smart home” issue of Maximum Tech, Dwell sought out an advertising partnership, and talks of national syndication with content and broadcasting properties are currently underway.last_img read more

Tesla eliminates service schedules moves to an asneeded model

first_img Tags 2 2019 Volvo S60 review: More competitive than ever More From Roadshow Comments 49 Photos Tesla’s Model 3 Performance subtly adds the power 2019 Lexus GS F review: A PG-13 flick in an R-rated segmentcenter_img Tesla Tesla 2019 Dodge Durango SRT review: Three-row muscle car Share your voice Electric Cars Car Industry Enlarge ImageThe Model S has been around for seven years now, so Tesla has a pretty good idea of what breaks and what doesn’t. Manuel Carrillo III/Roadshow One of the fringe benefits of having an electric car is that for the most part, they require much less maintenance than a comparable vehicle powered by an internal combustion engine. Tesla is taking advantage of this after crunching the data on the last few years of service and vehicle data by moving away from a recommended yearly service program to one that only requires vehicles to come in when parts need to be replaced.This probably sounds crazy if you’ve never spent a significant amount of time with an electric vehicle, but think about it like this: What are the most common service items on your ICE-powered car? Oil changes, brakes and tires. Add in things like accessory belts and timing belts that degrade with use and heat and all of a sudden you have a pretty full maintenance schedule.An EV doesn’t have engine oil to change, nor do the motors produce the same kind of heat that gasoline or diesel-powered engines do. Parts aren’t subjected to the same kind of temperature extremes. With brakes, many EV drivers use their vehicles with high levels of regenerative braking. This uses the drivetrain to slow the car and recharge the battery and saves significant wear on the vehicle’s braking components. Brake fluid, however, will still be checked every two years for water contamination.Add in the fact that Teslas are internet-connected and have robust remote diagnostic capabilities and a yearly check-up seems even less necessary. Tesla representatives are quick to point out that this shift in service methodology has nothing to do with a Tesla’s warranty, and vehicles that need service can get it.Tesla will stop pushing its prepaid maintenance plans for customers, but will still honor the plans that have been sold. It seems likely that the “as-necessary” service system will end up being cheaper than a prepaid plan for customers anyway.last_img read more

What really happened in the last scene of Game of Thrones

first_imgIf you’re not caught up on HBO’s Game of Thrones or are choosing to sit out the developments in season six until George R.R. Martin finally finishes The Winds of Winter, the sixth book in the A Song of Ice and Fire novel series, you have clicked on the wrong post.Everyone else here has seen Game of Thrones through the second episode of season six, titled “Home.” Or you simply don’t care about spoilers and want to be part of the watercooler conversation, no one’s knocking that approach.Just the cool kids? Ok. Someone pick me up off the floor!!!! My faith is strong!!!! #GameofThrones #GoT pic.twitter.com/0srtfQildG— RJ (@Ryan_Johnson) May 2, 2016Jon Snow lives!Since season five ended with a pool of blood tainting the snow beneath our betrayed Lord Commander of the Night’s Watch, theories of his resurrection have swirled. Luckily, we had the many book readers who had caught up with A Dance With Dragons, where Martin left Jon in a similarly perilous cliffhanger, uttering his last word (“Ghost”) as he died in the snow. Readers had also been privy to the full spectrum of A Song of Ice and Fire prophecy and benefited from having multiple point of view chapters that shed insight into key characters.Last week, we found out that Melisandre, the Red Woman, is actually extremely old. There was some foreshadowing in the book that lead some people to expect that twist, and Jon Snow’s new life is no different.Since this plot is an instance where the show has vaulted ahead of the book’s plotting, we’re now stuck in an era where only what the show has given us can be used to speculate about just how Jon Snow came back to life. There’s some hints in the text, but – as always – things aren’t as clear as they initially seemed.The prevailing opinion among those who thought Jon Snow would be resurrected was that Melisandre would use her magic given to her by the Lord of Light to bring Jon back. The Lord of Light’s chosen warrior in the upcoming war against the wight forces of the Night’s King is supposed to be a reincarnated Azor Ahai, the person who joined forces with the Children of the Forest and defeated the last White Walker surge into Westeros.Melisandre has spent all her time on the show trying to find Azor Ahai, who she initially thought was Stannis. When we were introduced to those two characters, Melisandre was burning statues of The Seven so Stannis could pull a sword from the flames.That was Melisandre trying to recreate a prophecy where Azor Ahai reborn would pull a sword from the flames. It was Ahai’s magical sword Lightbringer, and whomever wields a returned Lightbringer would be the returned hero. Although the Red Woman thought Stannis was Azor Ahai, the show has proved that wasn’t true.Jumping ahead of the books (where Stannis still lives), the show takes Stannis off the list of possible Azor candidates. In the latest book published, A Dance with Dragons, Melisandre has a point of view chapter that suggested to readers that Jon Snow was Azor Ahai when the character says: “I pray for a glimpse of Azor Ahai and R’hllor shows me only snow.”Prediction number one was that Melisandre (Carice van Houten) would use her Lord of Light powers to resurrect Jon Snow, like we (and she) saw Thoros of Myr resurrect Beric Dondarrion in season two. As this week’s episode unspooled and we finally got to see the death of Balon Greyjoy on the bridges of Pike, the last of Melisandre’s leech magic. Yup, season three’s leeches finally came to roost when mysterious bearded Greyjoy (Euron) killed his brother to kick off the Kingsmoot. Waiting while dad gets first class Full Body & Face Treatment at the Castle Black Beauty Salon #GameofThrones #Home pic.twitter.com/op5VdpEdMg— Ghost (@Albino_Direwolf) May 2, 2016During the final minutes of the episode, we watch as Jon’s body gets washed and prayed over, then everyone leaves the room except for a napping Ghost. That’s Jon’s direwolf and other Starks have the ability in the books to share a mental connection with their pets. Bran Stark, a Warg, has actually inhabited animals (and Hodor). Is it possible that Jon, through the trauma of being stabbed multiple times, just hung out in the body of his super-cool pet until he could come back while no one was watching?It seems unlikely, but without a prose re-creation of the event we witnessed to fall back on, just who or what is inhabiting Jon Snow’s body and how it got there is still a mystery.What we can expect from newly resurrected Jon, though, is that he won’t be the same Jon Snow that we saw die, at least not exactly. In 2011, before the HBO show had any of these problems, George R.R. Martin addressed bringing characters back in an interview with Sound of Young America:My characters who come back from death are worse for wear. In some ways, they’re not even the same characters anymore. The body may be moving, but some aspect of the spirit is changed or transformed, and they’ve lost something. One of the characters who has come back repeatedly from death is Beric Dondarrion, The Lightning Lord. Each time he’s revived he loses a little more of himself. He was sent on a mission before his first death. He was sent on a mission to do something, and it’s like, that’s what he’s clinging to. He’s forgetting other things, he’s forgetting who he is, or where he lived. He’s forgotten the woman who he was once supposed to marry. Bits of his humanity are lost every time he comes back from death; he remembers that mission. What mission does Jon Stoneheart come back to life with?Bah! We have to wait a whole week to find out.center_img Happy now? — Carice van Houten (@caricevhouten) May 2, 2016As much as it seems like a Lord of Light resurrection of Azor Ahai went down on Sunday, there’s still a possibility another book-reader theory of how Jon Snow could have avoided death is still in play. Namely, that Jon’s soul or consciousness managed to survive body death by transferring into Ghost.last_img read more

Researchers find a way to produce freestanding films of perovskite oxides

DOI: 10.1038/s41586-019-1255-7Press release © 2019 Science X Network Birkhölzer and Koster point out that the work done by the combined Chinese and American team demonstrated that it is possible to produce at least some transition-metal oxides in a thin film format. Their research also allayed fears that such a film would collapse, making it unusable. Birkhölzer and Koster point out that many new materials are made by going to extremes—making them really big or really small. Making them small has led to many recent discoveries, they note, including a technique to make graphene. One area of research has focused on ways to produce transition-metal oxides in a thinner format. It has been slow going, however, due to their crystalline nature. Unlike some materials, transition-metal oxides do not naturally form into layers with a top layer that can be peeled off. Instead, they form in strongly bonded 3-D structures. Because of this, some in the field have worried that it might never be possible to produce them in desired forms. But now, the researchers with this new effort have found a way to produce two transition-metal oxides (perovskite oxides strontium titanate and bismuth ferrite) in a thin-film format.The process developed by the researchers involved using molecular beam epitaxy to apply a buffer layer onto a substrate followed by a layer of perovskite. Once the sandwich of materials was made, the researchers used water to dissolve the buffer layer, allowing the perovskite to be removed and placed onto other substrates. The researchers report that their process worked so well they were able to extract films of perovskite near the theoretical limit—one square unit cell (with approximately 0.4-nanometer sides).center_img Citation: Researchers find a way to produce free-standing films of perovskite oxides (2019, June 6) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2019-06-free-standing-perovskite-oxides.html Journal information: Nature A team of researchers from Nanjing University in China, the University of Nebraska and the University of California in the U.S. has found a way to produce free-standing films of perovskite oxide.

Pa. in 2011 Torba moved to California in late 2014 when his startup was picked for the Y Combinator a Silicon Valley incubator Friends told Bloomberg News that as a political conservative he felt out of place in Silicon Valley In various interviews Torba has explained that he was motivated to create Gab during the 2016 presidential election after reading reports that major social media companies like Facebook may unfairly promote posts and topics discussed by liberal users over conservative ones“I didn’t set out to build a ‘conservative social network’ by any means but I felt that it was time for a conservative leader to step up and to provide a forum where anybody can come and speak freely without fear of censorship” Torba told the Washington Post in November 2016“Every major communication outlet every major social network is run owned controlled and operated by progressive leaders progressive workers in Silicon Valley” he saidShortly after the election Torba further alienated himself from many of his peers getting kicked out of a Y Combinator online alumni group for directing profane anti-immigrant language at other membersTorba a Trump supporter and self-described “conservative Republican Christian” has maintained that Gab’s mission is to facilitate free speech online and that supporters of all ideologies are welcome Nonetheless Gab immediately attracted users from the far right including a number of well-known alt-right extremist and fringe figures such as Richard Spencer Milo Yiannopoulos and Alex Jones who were losing their mainstream social media platforms around the time Torba launched Gab“It’s hard for me to dissociate Gab from the reason it was founded which was quote-unquote left wing censorship” said Keegan Hankes an expert on online extremism at the Southern Poverty Law Center Hankes says Torba established Gab to give a platform to “the most extreme hate groups leaders and extremists being purged from major social media platforms for blatantly inappropriate and harmful behavior”“He looked at that and created a home for those people to come live in and he knew it” said Hankes “The type of behavior [Y Combinator] threw him off for is kind of the type of behavior that is definitely a core part of Gab”“The biggest thing about it is there are basically no rules You can go on there and say anything you want virtually no matter how disgusting or vitriolic or ultimately dangerous” Hankes said adding that the swift suspension of Bowers’s account on Saturday was “the first time I’ve seen them do it willingly in a proactive way”Hankes noted that Torba — who appears to make all the decisions about moderating content on Gab — has only been moved to remove particularly offensive or threatening posts from the site on a couple of occasions and only in response to threats from online hosting providers“That I think illustrates how far he’s willing to take this kind of free speech absolutism and of course that’s why you have every major hate group leader on there using it” said HankesPeople mourn in Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Hall & Museum during a community gathering held in the aftermath of Saturday’s deadly shooting at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh Oct 28 2018 (Photo: Matt Rourke/AP)MoreSaturday was “the first time that I think there’s been a very very clear connection between someone’s activity on Gab and some sort of real-world tragedy” Hankes said but added that the site is still young “It didn’t take Gab very long to find itself a bona fide murderer allegedly on its platform”Most of the organizers and leading figures in last year’s Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville including those who’ve been arrested in connection to violence at that event had accounts on Gab before it was taken offlineOren Segal director of the Anti-Defamation League’s Center on Extremism said that while he doesn’t believe Torba himself is a white supremacist or an extremist the free-speech narrative he’s adopted in defense of his platform is similar to the one that has been embraced by far-right groups“I think what he has done is not only provide a platform but has ignored calls for corporate and social responsibility” Segal told Yahoo NewsWired editor Nicholas Thompson questioned whether the moral case for shutting down Gab and other sites like it should override the free speech argument for keeping it around — and whether the tech companies who have the power to make such decisions are using it wisely“Should Gab have been knocked away If your first principle is free speech of course not” Thompson wrote Monday “Anti-Semitism is not illegal and providing a platform where anti-Semites post is not illegal either Threats of violence are illegal but Gab says that it does its best to remove them”Thompson also raised a practical question about the fallout from dismantling Gab “Pushing the alt-right off Twitter drove them to Gab” he pointed out “Will shutting down Gab just push people to Voat [a Reddit-like forum that boasts a “no censorship” policy] or whatever comes next”Segal noted that he and his colleagues at the ADL have recently observed conversations among the extremists they observe online regarding next steps in light of Gab’s current removal from the internet and whether that Gab will find a new home or be forced to take their content to another platform that shares a belief in uncensored speech“This is the beginning of this discussion” he said referring to the issue of hate speech online “Gab being taken down is not the end”Read more from Yahoo News:
