"How Sony's Impressive First-Person Shooter Virtual Reality Demo Works" http://feeds.gawker.com/~r/kotaku/full/~3/iCUQ5LcqGvs/story01.htm
They're calling it a demo, not a game, and it's not quite perfect. You can't even walk in it, after all. But there's something really cool about the London Heist, a snippet of a first-person shooter made to be played using Sony's PlayStation 4 Morpheus virtual reality headset.

EA has shut down Maxis Emeryville, the main Maxis studio and longrunning developer behind SimCity and Spore, among other games. Though the Maxis brand will carry on, the studio that most people knew as "Maxis" is no more.

The most likely explanation for the jaunt around the Bay Area is that Mercedes-Benz is filming some sort of promotional video about, or at least including, the F015.

Android: You don't have to try very hard to take too many photos with your phone anymore. Gallery Doctor will help clean up the garbage by identifying photos that are too similar, or finding the ones that have poor lighting and may not look very good.

"A History Of Maxis: Thanks For SimCity" http://feeds.gawker.com/~r/kotaku/full/~3/U8XHYqZSrwE/story01.htm
The Maxis that you knew, the studio that released SimCity and invented The Sims, is no more. The SimCity brand might live on, and the Maxis brand might live on elsewhere, but they'll survive only as brands, things EA will invoke to sell things. This is a very sad thing, but let's try and remember the good times.

"Which Online Money Transfer Service Is the Most Secure?" http://lifehacker.com/which-online-money-transfer-service-is-the-most-secure-1688912343
Dear Lifehacker, Services like Venmo, Square Cash and other instant money-transfer services make sending a money to friends, splitting a check, or paying the rent easy. However, Venmo was just called out for its lax security, and now I'm spooked. Which of these apps are secure? Can I trust them?

Introduction
Daniel Teixeira-Gomes - Media Artist and Technology Innovator
http://thefaredge.com

Daniel's fascination with visual arts and technology began early in life. By his early teens he'd already built his first computer, helped put together the UK Scouting organizations Computing merit badge, won national and regional awards for his photography, poetry and fiction writing, and convinced his teachers to lend him his school's first video camera to make a "tv show" with fellow childhood school friends.

Twenty-odd years later, Daniel has become a veteran of the San Francisco independent and fringe art scene. His credits include the 2005 Best of Fringe show, Come Fly With Me Nude, and the feature length film of the same name. 

Like so many people with a passion for the arts, Daniel supports himself and his projects through the application of a somewhat different, although convergent, set of skills.

After many years as an International Technology Consultant, with many ground breaking Mobile Telephony Projects, and controversial game-changing web sites, like 192.com, under his belt, Daniel has been working for almost a decade as  in-house technology leader at several Bay Area non-profit media arts organizations, and is a founder of indieplex.org - the Bay Area’s Indie Media Magazine.
