Telco-less Mobile Calls, Videogames, Open Source Hardware, Facial Recognition

  1. Viber — more and more people are wanting to talk to me via this, rather than Skype or direct phone call (req. wifi). Can’t tell whether massive disruptor or toy.
  2. Who Killed Videogames“The players will come for the cute characters, and stay for the cruel mathematics.”
  3. Visual Diffs for Open Source Hardware — just what it says.
  4. Facebook Face Recognition Study — take profile photos from dating sites, facial-recognition match against Facebook photos to find identity, use to predict interests and social security numbers.
