The anti-robocall option proposed by two Google engineers.
The Federal Trade Commission just revealed the 3 champions of its Robocall Obstacle, a contest meant to crowdsource the solution to the robocall misfortune that prompts even more than 200,000 customer complaints monthly. The first-place award was split between two individuals, programmers Aaron Foss and Serdar Danis. The “technology achievement award,” reserved for a submission connected with a huge company, stepped into two Googlers, Daniel Klein and Dean Jackson.

Microsoft is having one of its biggest “Patch Tuesday” monthly security updates ever, issuing fixes for a whopping 57 flaws in Windows, Internet Explorer, Microsoft Office, and other products. And who does Microsoft have to thank for more than half of these reported problems? Google.

We have not inspected in with littleBits in rather time and, honestly, it was a bit of a surprise to discover the electronic dabble toys concealing in a silent edge of the flooring at Toy Fair this year. The home has actually expanded rather a bit in the past couple of years. For one, it’s no longer a “project” but an actual shipping product. And in the last year founder Ayah Bdeir has turned it from a fantastic concept into an actual business with significant investors. For those of you unpracticed littleBits, the goal is to do for electronics what LEGO did for structural engineering. The small color coded “blocks” snap together with magnets permitting even a newbie to create a functioning circuit in seconds. The magnets will only connect in one orientation, avoiding you from pushing current through a part in the wrong instructions and wrecking it. Ayah’s motivation is not just LEGO, but object oriented programing languages that simplify constructing code, allowing developers to concentrate on the more innovative aspects of software manufacturing. By doing some of the heavy logical lifting for you, littleBits hopes that prospective electrical engineers and prototypers can concentrate on the goal as opposed to the minutia of setting out a breadboard or soldering resistors in place.
The latest version of the platform, v0.3, debuted just a couple of months ago and not only brings new pieces to the littleBits world, but also adds legs to the blocks for improved stability when piecing together your projects. Presently there are four kits available: the 3 piece Teaser kit for $ 29, the seven piece Holiday kit for $ 49, the 10 piece Starter kit for $ 89 and the 14 piece Extended kit for $ 149. (You could likewise get specific Bits for between $ 10 and $ 35.) If you require motivation there are a number of jobs for you pore over on the website and the company is even considering packaging them up as pre-planned kits. Though, unlike other electronics project packages (such as the common BrushBot), the magnetic pieces can easily be disassembled and re-purposed if you tire of your production. While the concept has its roots in brand names like Snap Circuits, littleBits absolutely provides more flexibility than those solitary purpose offerings. For more, have a look at the video after the break.
In 2002, four Microsoft engineers presented a paper titled The Darknet and the Future of Content Distribution to a security conference in Washington, DC. They argued that DRM would be ineffective at stemming the unauthorized spread of copyrighted content due to a “darknet” of torrents, file lockers, and local sharing. Microsoft was in a tough position at the time as it wanted to both calm fears that PCs would become “locked down” by secure hardware modules at the same time as staying on the good side of content companies. Because of this, the paper’s authors almost lost their jobs and were not allowed to publicly defend their statements.
In an interview with Ars Technica, the paper’s lead author discusses the complex internal politics…
Question by : what type of work do people in robotics engineers perform?
Answer by Bob
Well it depends on who you work for. I can tell you about the manufacturing side of things. You will be mostly inside with the robotics equipment dealing with things such as welders, milling stations, etc. You might be in charge of overseeing how the equipment performs, determining if it needs to be upgraded, or if maintenance is required. You might also work with advanced robotic systems to help improve flow on the assembly line. Here you would work with the latest robotic technologies and determine what systems would work well with the assembly line.
You also could work for a robotics company. You probably would be able to design robotic equipment or at the very least, work along side Mechanical Engineers for design.

We have actually been hanging around, rather patiently we could include, for carbon nanotubes to actually begin making a difference in our computing lives. That day has yet to pass, however specialists at Stanford are making excellent progression. Breakthroughs have been coming at a stable pace over the last many years, but there are still major barriers. For one, aligning tubes end to end has actually proven nearly impossible, and metallic carbon nanotubes (as opposed to semi carrying out ones) create all kinds of havoc with circuits. (That wouldn’t be an issue if there was a trustworthy method to generate just the semiconducting range.) Instead of charge headlong into those challenges though, the Stanford group has identified a way around modern restrictions, without losing a lot of the energy efficiency that makes carbon nanotubes so desirable. The team has found an “imperfection-immune” method of making nanotube circuits that takes out metallic impurities and is unaffected by crookeded tubes. For even more details, look into the PR after the break.
If the HTC Status‘ dedicated Facebook button fell shy of satisfying your obsessive social networking needs, sit tight: the house of Zuckerberg may be building a slab of tech just for you. According to the New York Times Bits blog, those old Facebook phone rumors are making a comeback. A handful of Facebook employees and engineers familiar with the matter reportedly say that the firm is collecting former Apple engineers, specifically, ones that worked on the iPhone and iPad. Like Zuckerberg said, mobile is the company’s top focus, and one employee says the man at the top is afraid of getting overlooked in a sea of apps. “Mark is worried that if he doesn’t create a mobile phone in the near future that Facebook will simply become an app on other mobile platforms.” Facebook has focused on deep integration with other devices for some time, but a dedicated handset could take the freshly public company in new directions. Reports suggest that the rumored device is still in its infancy, and there’s no word on form factor or OS, of course. Up for some speculation? Check out the source link below for Bits’ full take.
Recent rumors have indicated that Google may be planning to sell off Motorola Mobility to Huawei, but that doesn’t mean the phone manufacturer isn’t hard at work on new products. The name of one possible upcoming device — the Droid RAZR HD — has now appeared in the EXIF data from a series of images uploaded by a purported Motorola employee. The photos in question, stored on Picasa, are listed as being uploaded by Vic Yu, who according to both his Google+ profile and LinkedIn page is an engineer and program manager at Motorola Mobility. Along with the product name, the EXIF data lists a camera with a f/2.4 aperture and a focal length of 5mm. Also of note is the software version, which lists an Ice Cream Sandwich build of 4.0.3 while…
