alexa, what do you see? amazon said to be working on glasses

Amazon is attempting to develop glasses that pair with Alexa and would allow users to access the voice-activated assistant outside the home, according to a newspaper report. The Financial Times, citing anonymous sources, says the glasses could be released before the end of the year. Inc., based in Seattle, did not immediately respond to a request for comment Wednesday. Wearable technology, glasses specifically, is already in limited use. Snapchat sells $130 glasses that take a short video and post it on the social media app. And Alphabet Inc. sells Google Glass to employers, so that doctors or factory workers can search information or talk to coworkers hands free. The upcoming iPhone X has many exciting features which Apple thoroughly detailed during the September 12 launch event. We could focus on, to reel off…

why some hurricanes linger while other storms die quickly

This hurricane season is showing how wild and varied storms’ life cycles can be. Most storms seem to be tracked for days while others appear to pop out of nowhere. And some just linger around. Hurricane Jose is pushing the two-week mark as it meanders off the U.S. East Coast. Lee, named a tropical storm last Saturday, is barely hanging on as a tropical depression. Harvey formed, died and then came back to life as a major hurricane, dumping a record amount of rainfall on south Texas last month. Hurricane Katia seemed to just pop up in the Gulf of Mexico days before hitting the Mexico coast. Forecasters for days watched Harvey, Irma, Jose, Lee and now Maria make steady marches west off Africa before they got named. About four out of five major…

sports in virtual reality sounds cool, but can feel distant

When watching sports in virtual reality, it’s best to remind yourself that TV wasn’t born in a day. Early television was mostly radio with pictures. It took years - even decades - for producers to figure out the right camera angles, graphics and instant replays to deliver. Sports is going through a similar transformation. VR holds the promise of putting fans right in the middle of the sporting action - on the 50-yard line, say, or in a ringside seat, or standing behind the catcher as the umpire calls strikes. But today’s VR sports have an empty and distant feel to them. Watching through a headset sometimes feels like being there in the stadium... by yourself, absent cheering fans, hot dogs and beer. And it doesn’t get you close enough to the…


Concrete and Gold Foo Fighters Recorded in one L.A. studio alongside The Bird and The Bee’s Greg Kurstin, Concrete and Gold balances Beatles-like pop in tracks like “Happy Ever After (Zero Hour)” with the metallic thrills of “Run” while making room for guest appearances from the likes of Paul McCartney, Justin Timberlake and Boyz II Men’s Shawn Stockman. FIVE FACTS: 1. The phrase ‘Foo Fighter’ comes from World War II when pilots coined the term for weird sights they encountered while flying in the skies. 2. Before joining the band, Taylor Hawkins was Alanis Morissette’s touring drummer. 3. After Kurt Cobain’s death, Dave Grohl almost joined Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. 4. Dave Grohl played every instrument on the band’s 1995 self-titled album except for one guitar part which is played by Greg Dulli from the…
