It's closing time for Windows Phone, it seems...
 
RIP Windows Phone?

Windows 10 will be reaching millions of users this month, but Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella and Team may be thinking of dropping one of their platforms soon: Windows 10 for Phones and Small Tablets.

Instead, Microsoft may focus on promoting Android devices with preinstalled Microsoft apps (but not forks - these would be Google Play Supported devices), while seeking a deal with Google for First Class Windows Apps.  Google could, instead, push Chrome as the only way to get First Class Google Apps on Windows (courtesy of App Runtime for Chrome), so this is probably a wise move, given Chrome's obvious ambitions to become an OS-On-Top-of-Windows.

If true, this would be huge: Microsoft would be admitting utter defeat in the mobile platform market, and for all the money they can throw at getting their apps preinstalled, a future involving MS as a universal OS King would be an extremely remote possibility.

Do you think Microsoft should abandon pushing Windows 10 for mobile devices?

The internet of things is here! But I can't see the point in this one (other than the brag-value) ;o)
The stainless steel iKettle Electric Wifi Kettle will allow you to brew up from anywhere in your home using your smartphone. Boasting a one-touch set up for easy operation, the iKettle features four temperature settings, whilst the keep warm feature keeps the kettle at your desired temperature for up to 30 minutes. Perfect for making your wake-up coffee or your 'just-got-home-from-work cuppa', the iKettle comes with a soft touch rubber handle, a ...

Google Photos Questions - Desktop  - 
 
When will we get a new Photos App for Chromebook? I'm not entirely happy, that what was before an app now is a shortcut to the Photos site in the browser. Also the before so simple method of uploading (backing up) photos when plugging in a camera or SD card is no longer there, but is now replaced by uploading them to Google Drive instead - I don't want my photos in Google Drive, they should be in Photos - along with all my other photos I uploaded to Google+ Photos 😕

Just noticed that myself. So I held off on uploading until I can think more about it. I don't care where they are, as long as there is order, and thing aren't even more messed up.

Racial Stereotypes, Machine Learning, and Facial Recognition

Ouch!  It appears that, for the second time in far too short a time, a photo app designed to use AI to label people and things has systematically mistaken black people for gorillas.  I wish I could say this was satire, or even a cruel joke, but it isn't.

While +Yonatan Zunger is right to say this is absolutely NOT OK, I believe that, to leave it at that, as an 'oopsie', would be to overlook a frightening possibility: that such mistakes are not coincidences that just happen to sound like racial stereotypes.

In other words, these AI's may be able to teach us about the same sorts of perceptual errors and biases in humans.  Note the eerie correspondences: black people mistaken for gorillas, a blink feature that thinks all Asian people are blinking, etc...  These don't just sound like our stereotypes: they are the same stereotypes.

Zunger's idea for a permanent solution, as well, points to the best remedy for these sorts of mistakes: to focus, not on differences (bigger or smaller lips, hips, eyes, etc...), but rather to focus on shared human features.  In no way, in reality, are blacks mistakable for gorillas or Asian eyes for blinking eyes...  unless one focuses entirely on the differences between people.  This, in reality, is how bigotry operates: by getting you to notice and exaggerate the differences, and ignore the commonalities.

Let us therefore not dismiss these things as 'bugs', but rather as potentially valuable insights into both the origin of stereotypes, and hopefully for a solution to these issues as well.
Flickr sparked some controversy back in May after it was discovered that the service's new autotagging feature was prone to mislabeling black people as "ap

Sony announces Android M Developer Preview for Xperia devices

Those rocking a +Sony Xperia device and wishing to test drive the Android M Developer Review now can flash the M Developer Preview onto their devices! The build is basically straight AOSP, so don't expect anything beyond that. And interestingly enough, the AOSP M Developer Preview code isn't publicly available... yet? This could mean Google is about to release the code?

Introduction
The curious geek - always in search of new tech to play with. In touch with IT infrastructure (network, servers, virtualization) through my daily work and running a self-hosted Wordpress blog from home - mostly about gadgets, tech, apps and often related to open source in general and Ubuntu Linux in particular. The blog is in Danish, but Google Translate is helpful ;o)

I'm a heavy thinker, like to invent things and do things differently - also i tend to sometimes over-elaborate on things - bare with me! ;o)

Circle me, if you care for any of the following:
Android, Google, Ubuntu, Linux, Open source, Electronics, Gadgets, New tech and IT in general (including infrastructure subjects).

Nysgerrig og Geeky - arbejder til daglig med IT infrastruktur og blogger i fritiden om alt hvad jeg finder interessant - oftest om gadgets, apps/programmer/services, specielt relateret til open source og Ubuntu i særdeleshed.

Jeg hoster selv min egen blog og derfor handler en del indlæg også om netop de udfordringer der er med at køre sin egen linux server og hoste eget Wordpress site.

Tilføj mig, hvis du har følgende interesser:
Android, Google, Ubuntu, Linux, Open source, Electronik, Gadgets, New tech og generel IT relateret (inklusiv IT infrastruktur).

Efter nye ejere er kommet til er standarden løftet gevaldigt - super mad af rustik karakter og høflig betjening. Men desværre har køkkenet et stort logistik problem, som de bliver nødt til at gøre noget ved - der er for lang ventetid mellem retter eller ved supplering (i forb. med ad libitum) og der går for lang tid indtil alle ved bordet har fået deres ret. Kan man se bort fra dette, er stedet bestemt et besøg værd.
