Google Glass KitKat update lands ahead of tomorrow's big sale, removes video calling
Unfortunately, there's also one feature that has been removed in this update -- video calling. According to the Glass team that's based on wearer feedback and since less than 10 percent of people were using it, the feature is gone until they (or someone else working on Glassware) can make it better.

Xbox One update rolling out with Kinect improvements and friend notifications | The Verge

Starting today, the software maker is rolling out its latest update to Xbox One consoles, bringing some new features and improvements along the way. Xbox 360 owners will be familiar with friend notifications when players arrive online, but the Xbox One strangely lacked this feature at launch.

And despite the S5’s place atop the Samsung smartphone line, Rassweiler said that aside from its ability to survive getting wet, there’s not much else extraordinary about the phone, at least internally. “Inside we see mostly a lot of recycled components that we’ve seen before. There’s really nothing special inside where Samsung is pushing the envelope,” he said. “There’s no breakthroughs, there’s nothing earth-shattering. It’s really just a continuation of what has come before.”

Vicious Heartbleed bug bites millions of Android phones, other devices | Ars Technica
Because Android is frequently customized for specific devices or manufacturers, it's possible some versions besides 4.1.1 and 4.2.2 are vulnerable. For that reason, Android users should download Heartbleed Detector, a free app developed by Lookout. In the vast majority of the tests Ars carried out, it found various Android versions contained a vulnerable version of OpenSSL, but that the Heartbeat extension that hosts the coding bug wasn't enabled, making the devices immune to attack. The sole exception was when Ars executed the app on a handset running version 4.1.1, which returned the screenshot below.

According to details from multiple sources, Amazon’s first phone will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, and it will also include 2GB of RAM. It will run a heavily customized version of Google’s Android operating system similar to the version that powers Amazon’s tablets.

Internet troll personality study: Machiavellianism, narcissism, psychopathy, sadism.
That’s bad, but it’s nothing compared with what a new psychology paper has to say about the personalities of trolls themselves. The research, conducted by Erin Buckels of the University of Manitoba and two colleagues, sought to directly investigate whether people who engage in trolling are characterized by personality traits that fall in the so-called Dark Tetrad: Machiavellianism (willingness to manipulate and deceive others), narcissism (egotism and self-obsession), psychopathy (the lack of remorse and empathy), and sadism (pleasure in the suffering of others).

Microsoft hopes iPad users won't exploit Office loophole - CNET
Similar to sharing around an HBO Go password among friends, all that's required to exploit the loophole -- which, again, is against the rights agreement that limits you to authenticating only five tablets -- is to have someone with a valid Office 365 account log in to Word, Excel or any other Office app on iPad. Once that happens, the tablet is automatically authenticated for all Office apps and any future users, regardless of whether or not those users have paid for 365.

Twitter accounts have become high-yield on the black market for both the access the account provides to a user's other accounts, and the increased value of a "real" account to spammers.

Even spam Twitter accounts are worth five times the value of a spam Yahoo account, according to the RAND report's citation "The Role of the Underground Market in Twitter Spam and Abuse" (.PDF).

One-half of Facebook users get news there even though they did not go there looking for it. And the Facebook users who get news at the highest rates are 18- to-29-year-olds. The same is true for the growth area of online video. One-half of those who watch some kind of online video watch news videos. Again, young people constitute the greatest portion of these viewers.

Now Oculus can afford to sell them at cost. “It changes our priorities from making money to making virtual reality happen.” Iribe rejects the idea that he and his colleagues sold out. “If anything, I think Facebook got an incredibly good deal,” he says. “If we stayed independent, we could probably have made a lot more.” Brian Blau, a consumer technology analyst at research firm Gartner, says, “They want to seed the market. They want to get it in front of more developers and more early adopters. And that’s the way to do it, to give it away as cheaply as they can.”

While a full review of the application may reveal more of OneNote’s strengths and weaknesses (including its collaboration tools, Web clipper, and fruits of its partnerships with vendors like Brother, Doxie Go, Epson, Feedly, IFTTT, and Livescribe), overall I'm impressed with it. OneNote’s price, collaboration capabilities, and particularly its freeform note-taking feature make it a compelling application for capturing your ideas as quickly as possible. Whether it'll be a compelling alternative to Evernote remains to be seen.
