Microsoft Launches Hyperlapse to Turn First-Person Videos Into Stabilized Time-Lapses

Back in August 2014, we reported that Microsoft was working on some game-changing software that would magically transform first-person videos into stabilized “hyperlapses.” Today, the company officially launched that software, called Hyperlapse, for Windows, Windows Phone, and Android.

Wrong!

Being a smartwatch expert, and by that I mean I've sampled all of one device for several months, the idea of getting your smartwatch to do more seems like a step in the wrong direction.  Simply replacing your phone screen for your watch screen isn't where we should be heading.

I think this is where marketing and logic clash, because it's difficult to justify a device which simply displays your phone notifications.  But there is a freeness in this approach which for me makes the concept worthwhile.

Well that's interesting. 
Osama bin Laden’s death at the hands of US Navy SEALs was nothing at all like the official accounts given by the United States government and military, according to a controversial article in the London Review of Books by veteran investigative journalist Seymour M. Hersh:

Will be interesting to see what packages come on offer.  I'd much rather store the excess power I'm producing and use it than sell it back to the grid for basically nothing.  But I can still see it being a viable option if you fill you batteries and still have excess to sell it back to the grid.  So you may not actually want to leave the grid completely anyway and that will ease the transition.
 
Australia's electricity industry is about to undergo a massive transformation, with the advent of cheap storage batteries for solar energy.

US billionaire Elon Musk, a co-founder of PayPal, this month launched a lithium-ion battery called the Powerwall that is expected to sell in Australia next year for about $5,500.

"You can actually go, if you want, completely off-grid," Mr Musk said of the batteries.
