Jef Raskin (RIP) was the creator of the Macintosh project at Apple. I got to know him pretty well in the last five years or so of his life. He was a delightful curmudgeon, and very creative. He wrote a column for the print edition of bOING bOING about pranks and scams, under the moniker "El Jefe." (I'll get around to posting them one day.) (more…)
Nerval's Lobster writes: Demand for software engineering talent has become so acute, some denizens of Silicon Valley have contributed to a venture fund that promises to turn out qualified software engineers in two years rather than the typical four-year university program. Based in San Francisco, Holberton School was founded by tech-industry veterans from Apple, Docker and LinkedIn, making use of $2 million in seed funding provided by Trinity Ventures to create a hands-on alternative to training software engineers that relies on a project-oriented and peer-learning model originally developed in Europe. But for every person who argues that developers don't need a formal degree from an established institution in order to embark on a successful career, just as many people seem to insist that a lack of a degree is an impediment not only to learning the fundamentals, but locking down enough decent jobs over time to form a career. (People in the latter category like to point out that many companies insist on a four-year degree.) Still others argue that lack of a degree is less of an issue when the economy is good, but that those without one find themselves at a disadvantage when the aforementioned economy is in a downturn. Is any one group right, or, like so many things in life, is the answer somewhere in-between?

An anonymous reader writes: The New York Times has published an article on Star Trek: New Voyages, a fan production that's based on TOS. “People come from all over the world to take part in this — Germany, the United Kingdom, Australia and every state in the union,” said James Cawley, the show’s executive producer. “That’s the magic of Star Trek. It’s spawned this whole generation of fans who went on to professional careers — doctors, lawyers, engineers — who are now participating in that shared love here.” With TOS fans generally being less than enamored with the movie reboots, are fan produced web series the wave of the future?

The one thing that Lisp programmers can agree on is how much better Lisp is than C and similar languages. I was talking last week to some programmers who use the Clojure version of Lisp and it made me wonder “If Lisp is so great, why did this guy have to build a slightly different version instead of building a popular application program in an existing version of Lisp, such as Common Lisp?”
What do readers think? We accept the proposition that C is feeble and yet there are only three major variants of C: C, C++, and Objective-C. Over the same period of time there have been at least the following: MacLisp, Interlisp, Lisp Machine Lisp, Common Lisp, Scheme, Emacs Lisp, AutoLisp, Clojure (perhaps readers can think of others). Yet Lisp has fewer programmers and completed programs. Thus the ratio of popular installed computer programs to versions of the language is vastly higher in C than in Lisp.
Who loves Clojure and why? And why hasn’t the C world turned into a similar Tower of Babel?

Sponsored by Assemblymember Luis Alejo, today California Governor Jerry Brown signed AB30, a bill barring schools from naming teams or mascots "redskins."
NBC News shares:
The state Assembly overwhelmingly approved the California Racial Mascots Act in May, about a month before the Obama administration went on record telling the Washington Redskins that they would have to change their name before they would be allowed to move to a stadium in Washington, D.C., from their current home in suburban Maryland.
In a joint statement with the nonprofit group Change the Mascot, the National Congress of American Indians praised California for "standing on the right side of history by bringing an end to the use of the demeaning and damaging R-word slur in the state's schools."
It is perhaps a sad testament to our disembodied lives that we need a deck of cards to coax us into interacting with strangers in meatspace, but that's exactly what Sneaky Cards: Play It Forward are designed to do. And they make their game of social interaction and random acts of kindness surprisingly fun.
Sneaky Cards began life in 2009 as a winning submission, by a 16-year-old kid, to a contest held by Boing Boing and the Institute for the Future. The game became a free online download. You printed and cut out your cards, then played them in the real world. The creator, Harry Lee, described the game as being about “creating fun and creative social interactions,” and for “breaking up the tedium of everyday life.”
This current commercial version, from the wonderful folks at Gamewright, sports all new card designs, new card “missions,” unique card-tracking numbers, and a website where you can register your cards and find out what becomes of them as they circulate. This “Play It Forward” version was designed by Cody Borst, with the blessing of Harry Lee.
The Play It Forward deck consists of 53 cards divided up into six different mission categories: Engage (tests of audacity), Connect (finding people and things), Grow (self-challenges and learning experiences), Surprise (hide things for discovery), Care (do-gooder tasks), and Create (socially shared art challenges). The cards come in a handsome and sturdy flip box with a magnetic catch. Each card has a unique ID. As does each deck. You register the deck and then each of the cards that you wish to play. When you play a registered card, say “Give this card to someone without them knowing it,” by sticking it in your friend Peter's jacket pocket, when he discovers it, he can go to the address on the card, enter the number, and see where the card came from. And if he wants, he can be alerted (along with me and anyone else who registers the tracking code) when the card travels to a new owner.
It's really surprisingly exciting when one of the cards gets “played.” You get an email alert and you can see its location and travel path on the card's unique webpage. I left “Hide this card where it can be found” in the creases of a newspaper box at 39th and Prince in Flushing, NY and one in the drawer of my hotel room in Flushing. I'm going to be particularly tickled if these two cards ever end up back on my Sneaky radar.
I really like this concept a lot and have already had some great interactions with the deck. For instance, I gave the smile card seen above to Nick Normal of Maker Media while we were on the dance floor of the World Maker Faire wrap party in NY. He passed it on to someone else that night and it's currently recovering from all of the excitement in Bedford-Stuyvesant. Hopefully the great smile exchange will begin again soon.
The one thing I don't like about the game is that (currently) the website only tracks card location. It would be great if there was a way of attaching photos and sharing anecdotes about each of the tracked cards. I tracked Where's George? dollar bills years ago, and it was so much fun to read about the bills that I found, not just see their circulation route.
This was one of those rare products where, as soon as I started interacting with it, I began to think of so many other people, especially creative and courageous teens, who might really be inspired by this deck. I've already begun buying copies for them. If you know a creative teen who might need just a tiny nudge outside of his or her social comfort zone, or a precocious teen in need of outlets for their rambunctious energy, play it forward and get them this deck.

The Android and Tag Heuer Twitter accounts are tweeting up a storm about the upcoming Tag Heuer Android Wear watch. The "Tag Heuer Connected" teaser site confirms that luxury watchmaker is diving into the smartwatch market with an Android Wear device. The most interesting thing is the statement at the bottom of the page that reads "Developed in partnership with Google and Intel."
Tag, Intel, and Google have all been talking about the watch since the beginning of the year, but the tweet gives us our first glimpse at the watch's design. The description on the teaser site says, "TAG Heuer is pushing the Swiss avant-garde limits even further with the TAG Heuer Connected. Tradition meets innovation, craftsmanship meets savoir-faire, and bold style meets breakthrough technology. The clock is ticking to the major breakthrough." The site has a countdown for November 9, 2015.
Last month, Tag Heuer's CEO, Jean-Claude Biver, told CNBC that the smartwatch would sell for around $1,800. An earlier report from Wearable.com quoted Tag's UK communications manager as saying the watch would be upgradeable, which would make the $1,800 price tag a little more palatable (though not much).
It's been about a year now since I used the pages of Ars Technica to strenuously argue that developers should no longer lock bits of in-game content behind artificial gameplay barriers. Now it looks like that idea is getting some high-profile support from the best-selling Call of Duty franchise, which will give players access to every single story mission from the outset when Black Ops 3 launches on November 6.
In an interview with Eurogamer announcing the move, campaign and zombies mode director Jason Blundell echoes a lot of the same arguments I made against the standard unlocking system. "The unlocking level system is an archaic mentality we've had since we did bedroom development back in the day—you do this, then go on to the next one," Blundell said. "Consumers and game players in general are far more mature these days. There are so many things vying for our interests today. It's about 'how do they want to consume it?'"
If a player wants to jump right to level four after a friend's recommendation, "that's totally fine. I think it's their choice," Blundell said. If a player wants to spoil the whole story by jumping to the very end? "OK. Cool. That's up to them," he said.
SAN FRANCISCO—It’s amazing that the mouse, as one of our primary input devices, has not fundamentally changed since being invented nearly half a century ago. After all, the best input device would be no extra input device at all—who wouldn’t want a perfectly accurate Star Trek-style voice interface combined with a slick touchscreen?
Until we get there, one Israeli startup thinks it has a good interface option: a small plastic shell, laden with sensors, to wear on an index finger.
On Monday, MUV Interactive's new input device—Bird—is set to go on sale to the public for the first time, with a promotional price of $150 for the first 15,000 units. After that, MUV will kick Bird up to its regular price of $250. (As of this writing, online sales are set to begin Tuesday morning at 1am Eastern Time, which appears to be an error.) MUV has already sold over 15,000 units, primarily to business customers.
Scrubbing back-and-forth or in circles probably aren’t the best ways to brush—but those are the most popular methods taught to kids and endorsed by toothpaste companies. Dentists, on the other hand, tend to prefer something called the Modified Bass technique.
The iPhone 6s and 6s Plus come with a cool new “3D touch” feature that allows you to push a little harder on the screen to get a second set of menus. Apps needed updating before they could use this feature though, so lets take a look at some of the best implementations so far.

Bernie Sanders' opposition to the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act in its current form aligns him with privacy advocates and makes him the only presidential candidate to stake out that position, just as cybersecurity issues loom large over the 2016 election, from email server security to the foreign-policy implications of data breaches. The Senate is preparing to vote on CISA, a bill to address gaps in America's cyberdefenses by letting corporations share threat data with the government. But privacy advocates and security experts oppose the bill because customers' personal information could make it into the shared data.

A collection of first drafts, letters, outtakes and photos on display in New York City illuminate the inner workings of Ernest Hemingway's meticulous writing process — failures, flaws and all.
A mass shooting came on the first week of classes at Umpqua Community College; this past weekend, families and loved ones held memorial services and funerals for many of the victims.
Swiss watchmaker Tag Heuer has set a date for its upcoming Android Wear smartwatch unveiling. The Tag Heuer Connected, as it's called, will make its debut at the LVMH Tower in New York City on November 9th, according to invites sent out by the company today. The watch is reportedly based on the popular Tag Carrera and will cost around $1,800, according to a interview with Tag CEO Jean-Claude Biver on CNBC last month.
Tag is targeting the crowd of fashion-conscious luxury collectors who may have pined for the gold Apple Watch, but found its aesthetic appeal lacking. Apple's decision to began selling watches for as much as $17,000 earlier this year apparently reassured the folks at Tag. "We were a little bit concerned about the price,...
Netflix has become synonymous with award-winning television, and with Beasts of No Nation that reputation could stretch to movies. The company has just released the final trailer for the film, which is debuting Friday simultaneously on Netflix as well as in a limited theatrical run with Landmark Theaters. Directed by Cary Fukunaga (who directed the first season of True Detective), it tells the story of Agu (Abraham Attah), a young boy in West Africa who finds himself under the brutal tutelage of a band of rebels, led by Idris Elba's Commandant. Netflix acquired the project in March for a reported $12 million price tag.
Beasts represents a major move for Netflix, which has been spending the last few years putting together deals for...
I considered catching up on the life-consuming first-person shooter Destiny over the weekend, but tried the beta for Star Wars Battlefront and suddenly it was Monday morning. Like a relic from the previous decade, the game strips away many of the supposed improvements — advanced loadouts, weapon customization, in-world hubs — of online shooters. It may be the dad rock of video games I've been waiting for.
In the only mode that I could get to work — this is a beta after all, the full release comes in mid-November — two teams of eight players try to capture pods that drop from the sky. The map is a craggy, muddy maze, with plenty of places to hide or take cover, perfect for taking potshots at newcomers running blindly towards each new...
Ferrari, a longtime force in Formula One, is making a splashy statement on Wall Street. Ferrari is expected to cash in on its motorsports heritage when it debuts on the New York Stock Exchange under the stock ticker symbol "RACE" later this month. Reuters reports that Ferrari is planning to debut in its initial public offering at a value of up to $9.8 billion in the second half of October, according to its IPO prospectus, which was submitted on Friday.
Ferrari's racing roots date back to its founder Enzo Ferrari, who was a race car driver for Alfa Romeo and built the Italian luxury brand around its products' propensity for delirious performance and speed. He launched the Scuderia Ferrari racing team in 1929. While Ferrari has kept its...
Earlier this year we got word that Netflix had ordered a new comedy series from Bob Odenkirk and David Cross, the pair behind the oddball '90s sketch show Mr. Show. That series, W/ Bob and David, got its first trailer today.
The trailer shows Odenkirk and Cross playing, at various times, a good cop / bad cop duo, a guy who eats brunch while working at a laundromat, and a character inspired by AOL's uniquely coiffed digital prophet Shingy who says things like "What's inside a computer? No one really knows." Though the trailer doesn't give much away, it seems like a safe bet Mr. Show fans will feel at least slightly satiated by whatever the show ends up being. W/ Bob and David arrives on Netflix on November 13th.

An anonymous reader writes: On the 20th of October Pepsi will launch its own smartphone in China. The P1 is not just a cowling brand, but a custom-made device running Android 5.1 and costing approximately $205. At that price it's almost a burner, but even so it represents new possibilities for a brand to truly control the digital space for its eager consumers in a period where mobile content-blocking is becoming a marketing obstruction, and where there is increasing resistance on Google's part to allow publishers to push web-users from the internet to 'the app'.

The Real Dr John writes: A Nobel prize in economics, awarded this year to Angus Deaton, implies that the human world operates much like the physical world: that it can be described and understood in neutral terms, and that it lends itself to modeling, like chemical reactions or the movement of the stars. It creates the impression that economists are not in the business of constructing inherently imperfect theories, but of discovering timeless truths. In 1994 economists Myron Scholes and Robert Merton, with their work on derivatives, seemed to have hit on a formula that yielded a safe but lucrative trading strategy. In 1997 they were awarded the Nobel prize in economics. A year later, Long-Term Capital Management lost $4.6bn (£3bn) in less than four months; a bailout was required to avert the threat to the global financial system.

In 2003, the TSA fined Mary Hostein of Michigan for trying to take a a jar of apple butter through airport security.
When an agent told Hostein that the spread was a liquid, and therefore subject to the TSA's 3-ounce limit, she went to another line to see if the TSA agent stationed there was just as stupid as the first. He was, and Hostein was issued a $2,000 fine. She doesn't think she should pay it. The TSA says they are going to sue her.
Many consumer electronics companies, Apple included, use parts sourced from multiple manufacturers to meet demand for their products. You can make and sell more iPhones if you're buying screens from two companies, and that also insulates you from risk if there's something wrong with one company's components. Parts sourced from multiple manufacturers will inevitably behave a little differently, but, as long as the differences are small, people aren't really going to notice or care.
This is the kind of manufacturing nitty-gritty that doesn't usually make headlines, but, in the case of the iPhone 6S, people have suddenly become concerned. Apple is sourcing an important system component, the Apple A9 system-on-a-chip, from both Samsung and Taiwan Semiconductor (TSMC). This is something that it normally doesn't do, since manufacturing processes from different chipmakers can have different performance and power consumption even when the chip's design is identical.
And that's just what some iPhone 6S and 6S Plus buyers have run into. Using an app that has since been pulled from the App Store, some users were able to determine which chip individual iPhones were using and found that the phones with Samsung chips had significantly lower battery life than the phones with TSMC chips in certain tests. The findings got enough attention that Apple offered a rare comment on the situation, claiming that the test being used wasn't representative of actual use and that in "real-world usage" the difference between iPhone models with any combination of components was no more than 2 to 3 percent.
We recently published a rather lengthy review of Google's newest operating system, Android 6.0 Marshmallow, but there was one feature we couldn't get working in time for the review: the new automatic backup feature for app data. The theory is that this feature would take all your app data, stick it in the cloud, and when you restore your phone or buy a new one, it would be like nothing ever changed—all your settings and logins would come back like magic.
"Theory" is the key word, since we only had Google's descriptions and the behavior of the Android M Developer Preview to go on for the review. One week and lots of research later, we think we've nailed down how the system works in the final version. What follows is a rewrite of the backup section that we'll paste into the review, but since it is 95 percent new content and information, we're giving it a separate article, too.
If you've had any experience with the Developer Preview's backup behavior, it really doesn't apply to the final version. The Developer Preview took a brute force "back up everything" approach to app data, which in part was for Google's testing to see how such a system would work. The final version takes a safer, consumer-ready route that has a lot more restrictions for what gets backed up.
Guys. GUYS! It's really happening this time. Half-Life 3. Really! It's coming, and I have the proof right here!
Wait, come back. I know you don't really trust me after that European trademark application a few years ago turned out to be a bust. I know you've lost hope after nearly eight years of waiting and internal leaks suggesting that the game is no longer happening.

jones_supa writes: A couple of years ago, details began to unfold of a government-backed high capacity data cable between Germany and Finland, which would be routed through the Baltic Sea. The cable has now been nicknamed "Sea Lion," and the work started Monday in Santahamina coastal area, outside Helsinki. The cable was built by Alcatel Lucent and is operated by the Finnish firm Cinia Group. The Finnish government, along with the banking and insurance sector, have together invested €100M into the project. That investment is expected to pay for itself many times over once the business sector gets a boost from the new telecom jump. The new cable also makes Finland independent of the Øresund Bridge, through which all of the country's Internet traffic is currently routed, via Denmark and Sweden. Eventually the new link can reach Asia as well, via the Northeast Passage shipping route.

Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele are reportedly working on their next TV show, an undercover cop comedy for Fox set to feature Vine superstar Andrew "KingBach" Bachelor. The character is based in part off one of Bachelor's Vine personas, and Key and Peele will executive produce the show alongside Key & Peele writer Alex Rubens, according to a report today in Deadline.
Key and Peele ended their three-year, five-season run on Comedy Central last month to focus on other projects. Their departure has resulted in heightened speculation as to where the two would focus their socially conscious and often absurd cultural commentary. The two are keeping busy, new comedy shows aside. Key and Peele are working with director and writer Judd...
Charlize Theron's hard-bitten heroine Furiosa was one of the biggest reasons to go see Mad Max: Fury Road, but it's never been clear what role she'll play in future films. Now, George Miller seems to have bad news for Furiosa fans. In an interview with Digital Spy, Miller downplayed the possibility of the character returning in any major capacity — although he left the the option open.
The quote itself is, to put it generously, vague. In Digital Spy's video, George Miller is asked if in "the next Mad Max, if we see one, will Charlize [Theron] be back?" Miller seems hesitant. "I'm not sure, is the answer," he says. "She's not in the Mad Max story. But one of the stories, there's an interaction between the two. But I can't really say more...
