It sounded like Chris Roberts, a cybersecurity professional from Denver, was about to use his laptop to force the plane to deploy the emergency oxygen masks.

+Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) researchers have developed a probabilistic programming language, dubbed Picture, that can be used to infer the 3D shape of an object from 2D images with as little as 50 lines of code. Instead of requiring photo-realistic models which must be matched to input images, Picture can be used to compare hypothesized scenes to observations, using a hierarchy of more abstract image representations to determine the correct representation for an image.

This method of “inverse graphics”, deducing the likeliest 3D model from 2D visual information, incorporates previous machine learning research and readjusts probabilities based on available training data. The researchers believe that this method of probabilistic programming will alleviate the re-writing of code when tackling different computer-vision problems.

Probabilistic programming does in 50 lines of code what used to take thousands.

Designed for SSDs, this new data bus standard lets memory-based storage take flight. But it’s not for the average user yet.

Depending on the "3D" we're talking about, it could either be amazing, or "meh". 3D gaming? Awesome. 3D movies? Meh. 3D memory?...

yeah, but notice there's no mention of price. :)  It won't be disruptive if the price isn't reasonable.

Will you be my Facebook friend?  I am a prince from Nairobi and I need somebody to hold on to $18,000,00 for me. 
The world's largest social network just gave its users another reason to use its messaging service, even as competitors pile on features.

I like how Elon Musk and SpaceX's go-to media outlet is Twitter and Vine.  This is not your father's Boeing/NASA.

I guess the brand name "babble fish" was already taken..
One of the many neat things about the Internet is that it connects people from all over the world. However, by itself the web doesn't overcome...

Somebody at Sony thought this was a good idea.  "Imagine it, we could sell 10's of these!" 
The Sony Walkman NW-ZX2 is a luxury portable high-res audio player with Android streaming apps, a premium build and excellent sound, but its high price may be too much for all but the most dedicated music lovers.

+Fel Iron I am not defending Sony, I am defending high end DAP's. This Sony player IMO is over priced. I would NEVER pay more than $500 for a portable audio setup. That would include DAP/DAC/AMP. For $1000 you can buy yourself a MUCH nicer home audio setup for headphones that will sound even better than this.
