    This guy built a working hoverbike and somehow managed to not chop his legs off

    If I made a list of “People I admire greatly but that I’d probably never hang out with for fear of my life and limbs”, Colin Furze would be right at the top. He is a living, breathing mad scientist. This dude has built functional Wolverine claws, shoes to walk on the ceiling, and wrist-mounted flame throwers. His latest project: a hoverbike. An actual hoverbike. Read More

  • Past, present and pending photography meet in Leica’s screenless M-D

    Past, present and pending photography meet in Leica’s screenless M-D

    Footloose and LCD-free — that’s how Leica made the M-D. The new camera is actually old in several ways: It’s essentially 2015’s M packaged in the chassis of the limited, and also screenless, Leica 60. But the very fact that Leica is pursuing this almost absurd form of digital purism is suggestive of the future of photography. Read More

    Mercedes home batteries are a potential rival for Tesla’s Powerwall

    The batteries developed for the high demands of all-electric Mercedes-Benz cars are finding a new application as in-home energy storage units. Sound familiar? Yeah, it’s a lot like the Tesla Powerwall.

    Etsy’s latest diversity report recognizes gender as a spectrum, not a binary

    Peer-to-peer marketplace Etsy has released its first diversity report since going public last April, showing that people who identify as women make up 50% of the leadership and management roles at the company. In 2014, women held just 37% of leadership roles at the company. What’s also notable about this report is that it represents gender in a non-binary way. As of December 2015 at… Read More

  • Pandora up 6% on strong earnings but Rdio and Ticketfly buys don’t pay much yet

    Pandora up 6% on strong earnings but Rdio and Ticketfly buys don’t pay much yet

    Pandora continues to flail as Internet radio becomes just a feature baked into competitors like Spotify and Apple Music, but at least it had strong Q1 2016 earnings today. Pandora pulled in $297.3 million revenue and had $-0.20 Non-GAAP EPS, compared to estimates of $-0.32 Non-GAAP EPS. [Correction: $-0.51 EPS is GAAP, meaning results were a beat, not mixed.] That revenue came from ads… Read More

The big one here, in particular, is Amazon Web Services. AWS has become a go-to for most businesses, so it’s not surprising that it’s seeing that segment continue to grow steadily. The… Read More
