  • OnePlus 6 will have glass back, says CEO. But wireless charging isn’t confirmed

    The very first leaked image of the OnePlus 6 showed off the phone with what appeared to be a glass back, something we hadn’t seen since the the OnePlus X of old. But given it was so early in the game, we couldn’t be sure that wasn’t just a prototype variation. There’s no longer any doubt: OnePlus CEO Pete Lau today confirmed the next phone will come with a glass back. The CEO explained the change in a long philosophical post on the company’s forum – it basica
  • Net neutrality is dead! Four ways to get around the net neutrality repeal

    A lot has been happening over the past few weeks: Mark Zuckerberg appeared before congress to testify about Facebook’s role in the Cambridge Analytica scandal, Facebook was found to quietly move about 1.5 billion users out of the reach of the new GDPR law, and Alibaba was recently reported to have overtaken Amazon as the world’s number one e-commerce site. However, a very important piece of news hasn’t gotten much coverage from the media: today, April 23, net neutrality dies.
  • Inside the Marshall Islands’ plans to launch its own legal tender cryptocurrency

    You would be forgiven for letting the Marshall Islands slip your mind. The tiny nation of around 53,000 people sits in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, cast away from Silicon Valley or Switzerland’s Zug Valley, but it’s quietly plotting a project that could have a major impact on how cryptocurrency is viewed and regulated. The island is launching its own national cryptocurrency token dubbed the Sovereign, or SOV, which will be legal tender for citizens and businesses on the island.

  • I met will.i.am in a New York bathroom

    A couple of years ago I attended a conference in New York organized around Twitter. There were popular Twitter users and app developers and around 300 attendees. I wasn’t a speaker at the event, but I knew the organization and Chris Sacca, an early Twitter investor who had spoken at one of our earlier conferences in Amsterdam. I was about to walk into the men’s room when two guys ran out saying something like “I can’t believe that just happened!” I curiously walked
  • It’s been 20 years since Microsoft’s most embarrassing moment (besides Vista, obviously)

    Forgive me if this article makes you feel old, but I feel it’s my journalistic responsibility to inform you that this video of Windows 98 shitting the bed in a most public fashion turned 20 years old this weekend.

  • Design thinking sucks, but it doesn’t have to

    Design thinking has been around for many years, but it seems to me that it’s been poorly misused. Usually employed as a quick PR stunt, companies fail to understand how it can genuinely help create something powerful. In all fairness, that’s easier said than done. Why, you may ask? Because design thinking sucks. Before you sharpen the pitchforks, hear me out. Design thinking only sucks because no one has any idea how to use it right. Design thinking sucks as it currently stands. Whe
  • 7 childish tips for abusing Alexa Announcements

    Amazon’s Alexa has rolled out a new UK feature: announcements. Innovatively titled Alexa Announcements, it allows users to broadcast their voice to other Echo units in the house. This is different to the intercom feature, as rather than a one-on-one conversation, it’s transmitted to every device. And, well, to my eyes, it’s a feature ripe to be taken advantage of. Amazon chose to illustrate Alexa Announcements with the example of, presumably, a parent saying to the device &ldq
