Hundreds of pooping vultures occupy CBP radio tower in Texas

Hundreds of pooping vultures occupy CBP radio tower in Texas

It is one of fate’s grand ironies that those who literally feed off the weak and dying should stand together against those oppressing society’s most vulnerable. And yet, hundreds of literal vultures are presently occupying a Customs and Border Protection tower in southern Texas at this very moment.

So reports Quartz, which got its hands on a particularly beautiful CBP request for information. It seems that 300 vultures — yes, three hundred — have decided to call a Kingsville, Texas, radio tower their home. CBP, which operates the tower, is looking for «netting solutions» that could prevent even more vultures from nesting there.  Read more…

How To Impact Consumer Behavior With Your Own Or Stock Photos

Visuals play a crucial role in how entrepreneurs engage with their target audience and gain much needed social media presence. Visuals form the basis of how businesses communicate with their customers, and it’s also visuals that increase the audience reach. In recent times, marketers have employed photographs as a tool to enhance communication and boost sales.

With social media platforms such as Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, all photo centered, it is no surprise more and more people are now seeing the usefulness in using visuals to enhance audience engagement and involvement.

There is so much to visuals that meets the eye. With photos, you can build your brand, engage audience like never before, become an authority in your niche, engage customers and audience and establish credibility. What’s more, photography helps you mass appeal because deep down we operate on what we see. So what’s stopping you from using photos in your social media campaign?

You can increase your audience’s reach and boost sales either with photos created specifically for your needs, or with stylish photos from a premium stock photos website.

Color Solutions Are Very Important

Color Solutions Are Very Important

There are two schools of people that shop: offline shoppers, and online shoppers. Whereas online shopping has a short decision-making process, offline shopping, on the other hand, is the direct opposite. When you do offline shopping, you need to see the product firsthand, maybe test the product, haggle on price, and seek advice from a consultant, before you make your purchasing decision. Nevertheless, with online shopping, you only need to look at the website, the photos on display, price and you are done.

When it comes to online shopping, the overall appeal of the site, as well as the product image, are both essential for customer satisfaction. If you get both right, you can be sure of making an excellent first impression. If the visuals on your website resonate with visitors, then there is a strong chance you can turn them into your full-time loyal clients.

When we talk about the visual appeal of your website or online store, the importance of color to your aesthetics cannot be overemphasized. Yes, different people react differently to various colors, and we each have our own emotional perceptions and attachments to colors, but in general, they play a crucial role when it comes to buying a product. It doesn’t matter whether you use a professional stock photo or your photo; you have make some subtle edits before using them. Don’t just copy and paste them in different parts of your website and call it a day. You can place them on various backgrounds, add filters, change color accentuation and lots more.

Colors have various meanings

For example, various colors have various meanings attached to them. Green usually denotes, calmness and relaxation, and it is often associated with nature. Blue denotes peace, and comfort, Yellow is the color of happiness, and Red denotes dominance.

You have to give rapt attention to your choice of color when designing your product page and website if you want to achieve your business objectives.

Go For High-Quality Visuals

High-Quality Visuals

Let’s paint a picture for you. Imagine it is a cold, wet, windy day, and you are in need of a brand new coat to keep yourself warm. The only option you have is to shop online. Therefore, you open your mobile browser to check out two online shops you’ve heard about recently. The first online store has four photos of your intended coat, along with a lengthy description, and a few positive reviews from clients. In the second store, there is a brief description of the size and composition of the coat and lots of photos and videos of the coat.

You will most likely go for the coat on the second store, irrespective of the price. The reason for this is that people are visual beings, and when we shop online, we base most of our shopping decisions on the photos and videos we see.

consumer behavior and Eye

This is because we attach emotions to visuals. When shoppers make a decision relating to brands and products, use their personal feelings and emotions rather than facts. Thus, the more positive emotions a consumer has towards your brand, the more they will be loyal to you.

Visuals play a key role in consumer behavior. The quality of your photos will determine whether or not you make a sale. Therefore, it goes without saying that if you want to improve your sales, you need to invest in your website and product visuals. If you want to make use of stock photos, then take a look at more niche themes like medicine or local holidays. These images provide an apt representation of your brand’s idea, and you can be sure they have minimal associations with other brands.

Add Extra Information

Instagram shopping

You can further influence consumer behavior and fast-track their purchasing decision by adding the right information. Instagram shopping highlights this point perfectly. When you include more details on your products, it can encourage them to buy from you, and it can also act as a comparison tool.

It is always good to have the zoom option in your product images so customers can inspect a product and make their purchasing decisions based on what they see.

From a consumer’s perspective, when a product’s images are detailed and expansive, it shows there is nothing to hide. Furthermore, the visual aesthetic also accentuates what is embedded on the image. With that, you can establish your credibility.

Go Visual On Your Social Media

Go Visual On Your Social Media

Make your social media posts more visuals and fewer texts. One telling consumer behavior in recent times is that consumers tend to trust what they see on social media. Social media has become an authority, and as such, you should utilize it to its fullest. More people make purchases based on the ads they see on social media.

We have to emphasize that whatsoever you post on social media, whatsoever ever ad you run, make sure your images are in great quality, and ensure they match your brand values and appeal.

Engage With Your Audience

Engage With Your Audience

Along with visual aesthetics, brand engagement is another factor that heavily influences consumer behaviors.

Just because you have a social media page doesn’t mean you have a social media presence. The best way to improve your presence is to humanize your posts on social media.

Model your messages, photos, and posts to fit the needs of your target audience. You want to appeal to their emotions, and ensure your message reaches them.

stock photos

When it comes to your overall market strategy, using quality photos is a must. It helps to refine your project, makes it more appealing, and it humanizes your content. Once you grow your social media presence, your audience will grow as well, all thanks to your quality visuals and engagement. The end result of all of these is improved sales and a sizeable number of loyal clients. What’s more, you also give your brand a seal of credibility. Photos play a key role whether you like it or not, and it is high time you start using it effectively.


070 Shake Drops New Single & Video “Guilty Conscience” From Her Debut Album

G.O.O.D. Music artist 070 Shake is currently prepping the release of her debut album, MODUS VIVENDI, which is due out in one week’s time. Today the 22-year-old musician shares yet another track from the LP, “Guilty Conscience,” a followup to last month’s “Under the Moon.”

070 Shake introduces the song to the world via an official music video directed by Lauren Dunn. In the clip we see two rival gangs lining up for an all-out brawl. Press play above to check it out.

“Guilty Conscience” is the latest single release from Shake’s anticipated debut album, following the aforementioned “Under the Moon,” as well as “Nice to Have” and “Morrow,” which arrived simultaneously this past spring. In speaking on the project and her process of recording, 070 Shake said, “I just really go with how I feel in the moment, and then that’s where the writing comes from. It’s like an ongoing disperse of words when I feel something.”

MODUS VIVENDI releases via G.O.O.D. Music and Def Jam next Friday, January 17. Just two days later, Shake will be embarking on a seven-week headlining world tour. Head here for dates and locations, as well as to pre-save the album.


These are the people most likely to wear an Apple Watch

These are the people most likely to wear an Apple Watch

For some people, making a health resolution for the new year means turning to their Apple Watch or Fitbit for assistance. For others, it means exercising their asses off only to hope that they’re maybe — just maybe — on track to meet their goals.

Turns out, there’s a very specific pattern behind who wears smartwatches and fitness trackers — and who doesn’t

A Pew Research Center study published Thursday finds that the use of those devices falls along socioeconomic lines.

After surveying 4,272 U.S. adults, Pew found that adults from wealthier households are more likely to say they regularly use smartwatches or fitness trackers. Whereas 31 percent of adults from households that earn over $75,000 annually said they’re users of those devices, only 12 percent of those from households earning less than $30,000 said the same.  Read more…

Seth Rogen knows he looks like this dog and thanks you for the compliment

Seth Rogen knows he looks like this dog and thanks you for the compliment

Seth Rogen is a funny guy who loves dogs, and he apparently also looks like one.

The actor, comedian, writer, producer, and director is almost always sporting some sort facial scruff (if not a full-on beard), a smile on his face, and a twinkle in his eyes. When you think about it, Rogen kind of looks like this human-looking dog named Nori, right?

I’m not the only one who thinks Nori has Big Rogen Energy. Turns out so many people have been tagging the human Seth Rogen on photos of Nori, that the actor felt compelled to call out his canine look-alike on Twitter. Read more…

Report: Cortana recordings were protected with ‘no security measures’

Report: Cortana recordings were protected with 'no security measures'

It’s not like your voice-assistant conversations ever involve private information, right?

A report from the Guardian, which relies on an ex-Microsoft contractor as a source, claims that Cortana audio recordings were protected with «no security measures» until possibly as recently as last summer. Many of these recordings, which in some cases included audio clips from accidental activations of the smart assistant, were allegedly easily accessible over the Chinese internet with minimal safeguards. 

How minimal? Well, according to the unnamed contractor, all they had to do was log into a web portal via their Chrome browser. What’s more, the contractors, based in China, were all reportedly told to use the same password.  Read more…

Прекращаем ставить диод 2

Несколько лет назад мною была опубликована статья под аналогичным заголовком. Если кратко, то в ней я рассказал о процессе разработки с нуля устройства, выполняющего функции «идеального диода» для предотвращения разряда буферного аккумулятора на обесточенный блок питания.

Устройство получилось относительно сложным, хотя и довольно экономичным (ток потребления при использовании современной версии компаратора LM393 получился около 0.5 mA). Читатели обратили внимание на эту сложность и в комментариях предложили другой вариант «идеального диода», который выглядит на порядок более простым. К своему стыду, на тот момент я не был знаком с такой схемой, поэтому решил при удобном случае разобраться с ней подробнее. После серии экспериментов, которые начались с компьютерной симуляции, а закончились макетной платой, было выяснено, что при своей кажущейся простоте, эта схема очень нетривиальна как с позиции понимания всех протекающих в ней процессов, так и с точки зрения подводных камней, которые она в себе таит.

В общем, предлагаю вашему вниманию другой вариант реализации «идеального диода» с подробным описанием его особенностей. Читать дальше →


Продажи одежды в России сократились впервые с 2015 года

Продажи одежды в России сократились впервые с 2015 года, сообщает «Ъ» со ссылкой на данные Fashion Consulting Group (FCG).

В 2019 году продажи одежды, обуви и аксессуаров на российском рынке составили 2,26–2,29 трлн руб., оценила FCG. Этот показатель оказался на 3–4% ниже, чем в 2018 году.

Рынок одежды показал снижение впервые с 2015 года, когда он упал сразу на 9%, до 2,27 трлн руб. В 2016 году продажи росли на 1%, до 2,3 трлн руб., в 2017-м — на 3%, до 2,36 трлн руб., а в 2018-м остались на прежнем уровне.

По словам гендиректора FCG Анны Лебсак-Клейманс, отрицательная динамика рынка связана с падением потребительского спроса, повышением НДС, инфляцией и ростом долговой нагрузки населения. Она отметила, что одежда и обувь продолжают оставаться главной статьёй экономии для россиян. В частности, по данным Nielsen и Conference Board, в третьем квартале 2019 года на одежде экономили 56% россиян.

People Share The Moments That Made Them Say “I’m In Big Trouble”

Even though we might not be looking for it, sometimes trouble is downright unavoidable. Heck, you could live your whole life as a goodie-two-shoes and still find yourself in between a rock and a hard place now and again. Moments of distress are inevitable, but at least they usually teach us a lesson or give us a good story. These troublemakers took to Reddit to share the moments that made them say, “I’m in trouble.”

1. Why the Long Face?

I was going to a horse training/equine management type school for 10 months about 300km from my home. I quit my job, gave up my apartment, spent $2,000 on horse equipment, and BOUGHT A HORSE that needed to be picked up ASAP. School started on Monday…Friday afternoon I got a voicemail that derailed everything. The school didn’t get enough enrolment and everything was canceled until the next year.

That was a mess.

Samsung. NEON

Samsung разработала «искусственных людей» — это реалистичные виртуальные аватары. Новый проект «NEON» о технологии, которая позволяет создавать виртуальных людей, неотличимых от настоящих, которых можно использовать как для развлечений, так и для бизнеса, например в качестве гидов, работников ресепшн. А еще их можно будет снимать в кино, вместо голографических изображений героев, как сделали в «Блейд 2049» или «Аватар».
Деталями о проекте поделился разработчик «NEON», индийский ученый Пранав Мистри. Он опубликовал в твиттере изображение аватара, написав: «Код наконец работает, готова демо-версия CORE R3. Теперь аватар может самостоятельно управлять мимикой, двигаться, разговаривать (даже на хинди), независимо от исходных данных».

The Anachronistic Labelling of ‘Macintosh HD’

Adam Engst, TidBits:

My search confirmed my initial hunch that there is only one official remaining use of the word “Macintosh” by today’s Apple: the default “Macintosh HD” name of the internal drive on a new Mac. Many Mac users personalize that name immediately, although less experienced Mac users often don’t realize they’re allowed to change it. (If you’ve never done it, just click the name once to select it and a second time to start editing it, just like a file or folder.)


What’s most curious about this vestigial naming is that everything about it is wrong. Besides the anachronistic use of “Macintosh,” the “HD” abbreviation for “hard disk” or “hard drive” refers to a spinning disk drive, whereas most Macs rely on SSDs (solid-state drives). Even the case-less hard drive icon in the Quick Look preview window incorrectly uses an image of a spinning disk to represent an SSD.

As Engst illustrates, the CoreTypes bundle in MacOS contains icons for all kinds of drives: different external drive types, shared drives, and even fossils like ZIP drives. But MacOS stubbornly names the built-in drive “Macintosh HD” by default and still assigns it a spinning disk icon — which, by the way, has been redrawn twice since Apple launched Macs with default SSD options.

I kind of like it. Also, I still keep hard drive icons on my desktop, so maybe this is more indicative of the kind of person I am.


Узбекских хостелов негасимый свет. Ч6 Узбек, веди себя прилично

Во время вылета из аэропорта Бухары была очень любопытная сцена. Примерно за час до посадки в самолет в зале появился мужик в костюме и папахе, взял микрофон и минут 40 с пылом и жаром что-то вещал на узбекском языке, обращаясь к пассажирам. Спросил ожидающих, кто это и чего ему надо. Оказалось – муфтий, и говорил он о том, что узбекам, отправляющимся за границу, надо вести себя достойно, дабы не уронить гордого звания «узбек» в глазах иностранцев.

Мне эта практика очень понравилось. Просто страшно подумать, как бы вели себя узбеки в России, если бы не эти напутствия. И приятно, что мусульманское духовенство не уклоняется от морально-этического воспитания общества. Вот бы и нам запустить попов в аэропорты, чтобы вещали о том, что вести надо прилично. А если кто мусорит – кадилом по лбу.

В Microsoft Teams появилась функция push-to-talk

Microsoft добавила в свой корпоративный мессенджер Teams функцию «Рация» (Push-to-talk). В первой половине 2020 года она будет доступна в превью-версии. В первую очередь функция предназначена для мобильных сотрудников первой линии, которые работают с клиентами (например, продавцов, врачей, мастеров, водителей). Связь будет работать с помощью Wi-Fi или мобильного интернета на смартфонах и планшетах. В Microsoft также обращают внимание на то, что в отличии от обычных Walkie Talkie раций, связь через Teams — хорошо защищена. Напомним, в Microsoft Teams в прошлом году тоже появилось несколько фич для вне-офисных сотрудников: возможность расшаривать свое текущее местоположение, снимать и отправлять фото внутри Teams, записывать аудио.

Вячеслав Макаров (Wargaming) создаст партию для айтишников в кооперации с сотрудником Яндекс.Денег, бывшим продюсером ЖЖ и olegart’ом

Вячеслав Макаров, директор по продукту Wargaming, рассказал «Коммерсанту» о своём замысле создания «Партии прямой демократии», которая будет бороться за места в региональных парламентах, а потом и в госдуме.

Партию решили создать в 2019-м году на Евразийском экономическом форуме. В оргкомитет, по сведениям издания, войдут:

  • Алексей Пилько, историк, участник ЕЭФ, возьмёт на себя оргзадачи
  • Борис Чигидин (замначальника юридической службы Я.Деньги, игрок «Что? Где? Когда?»)
  • Олег Артамонов (olegart), известный блогер на «Хабре»
  • Тимофей Шевяков (tarlith) (бывший сотрудник ЖЖ, исполкома Единой России)

Для членов партии будет запущено мобильное приложение на блокчейне, через которое они смогут голосовать по предлагаемым партией вопросам.

В программе «Разворот» на радио «Эхо Москвы», Вячеслав Макаров сказал, что предлагаемый им проект, не совсем политический, а скорее технологический. Современная технология голосования, по его словам — прошлый век.

Референдумы, по его мнению, можно проводить хоть каждый день, по любому вопросу. В качестве примера Вячеслав привёл проект «Активный гражданин». В качестве альтернативы текущей ситуации, когда выбранный депутат весь избирательный цикл не зависит от мнения избирателей, он предлагает схему «выборщиков», которые продавливают через своего кандидата выбор решений конкретных вопросов, а не просто делегируют ему право принятия решений на весь избирательный цикл.

На вопрос, будет ли Вячеслав использовать гало самого Wargaming и его игровых продуктов (по его словам количество активных игроков в России — 5 млн человек), он ответил отрицательно.

На вопрос о том, занимается ли он политикой с разрешения кремля, Вячеслав выразил надежду, что кремлю на его активность будет пофигу. Борьбой с существующей властью новая партия заниматься не планирует.

Рождественское чудо в Ростове

Фото: like_a_grimm / SkyscraperCity

Я буквально только что вспоминал Ростов-на-Дону, когда гулял по Аделаиде. И это не просто так: дело в том, что в Ростове до последнего времени всем, кроме небольшой группы активистов, было плевать на историческую среду. Застройщики беспощадно вторгались в неё, уродуя центр города ЖК, воткнутыми среди двухэтажных купеческих или вообще частных домов, а чиновники с удовольствием согласовывали такие проекты.

Бывший мэр Ростова-на-Дону Виталий Кушнарёв даже советовал уезжать из города всем, кто не любит многоэтажки и парковки (за что я включил его в свой рейтинг «Длинный язык года»).

Но прямо сейчас в Ростове происходит что-то невероятное…

На улице Береговой в Ростове-на-Дону есть чудом сохранившееся здание склада Парамоновской мельницы.

Несмотря на то, что оно находится в засранной и полузаброшенной промзоне, здание очень милое и довольно крепкое.

Несомненно, ему требуется реставрация, но его можно сохранить и сделать в нём крутой жилой лофт или офисный центр.

Как я понимаю, слева на этой картинке как раз складской корпус.

Но, как это всегда раньше случалось в Ростове, на набережную позарился очередной застройщик. Московская строительная компания (МСК) решила воткнуть здесь огромную 32-этажную елду. Смотрите, какая красота!

На Яндекс.Картах указано, что муравейник должны были строить на пустыре.

Но на своём официальном сайте застройщик указывает, что адрес будущего дома – ул.Береговая 71-75. Дом №71А – это наше историческое здание. И я думаю, даже если бы высотка появилась не прямо на его месте, старинный склад всё равно снесли бы в процессе строительства.

И вот сегодня я читаю новости – и оказывается, что власти Ростова-на-Дону запретили МСК строить свою елду на набережной. Когда вообще такое было?! Это ли не чудо?

Новых высоток в зоне набережной Дона и её продолжения не будет. Как и нового жилищного строительства вообще. Это пообещал сити-менеджер Ростова Алексей Логвиненко, комментируя ситуацию с проектом 32-этажных домов на Береговой.

«Запрет нового жилищного строительства в районе набережной Дона в Ростове — это требование губернатора, с которым администрация города полностью солидарна. Власти Ростова отказывают всем застройщикам, которые приходят с такими проектами», — сказал глава администрации Ростова.

Власти за прошлый год «завернули» как минимум четыре проекта высотной застройки в этой зоне. В их числе, подчеркнул Алексей Логвиненко, и проект ЖК «Донской причал» от МСК. Именно он вызвал протесты ростовчан — они потребовали остановить строительство небоскрёбов в непосредственной близости от памятников архитектуры.

«Эта компания дважды обращалась к нам за разрешением, и оба раза получила отказ», — отметил градоначальник.

Информацию о запрете подтвердил заместитель директора департамента архитектуры и градостроительства Ростова Глеб Мельников. Он подчеркнул, что у застройщиков нет шансов получить разрешения, даже если они снизят этажность или как-то иначе скорректируют проекты своих ЖК.

«На данный момент позиция губернатора Ростовской области в том, чтобы закрыть прибрежную территорию Дона для жилищного строительства. Эти изменения будут внесены в правила землепользования Ростова в ближайшее время», — рассказал Мельников.

Мораторий будет касаться существующей набережной и отрезка береговой линии Дона, на котором планируют построить её продолжение. Однако застройка в районе Зелёного острова (сейчас её ведут ЮСИ и та же МСК) разрешена и будет продолжаться.

Интересно, что на сайте МСК «Донской причал» предлагается горожанам, причём первый литер обещают сдать в первом квартале 2022 года. Покупателям по телефону говорят, что пока открыты не продажи, а предварительное бронирование. Но заверяют, что разрешительные документы в стадии подготовки.

Алексей Логвиненко предупредил, что все попытки застройщиков продать квартиры в домах, которые никто не разрешал строить, будут пресекаться. Вплоть до подачи в полицию заявлений о мошенничестве. Он добавил, что представители властей уже даже получали угрозы от одной из компаний, получивших отказ, однако на позицию администрации это не повлияло.

Очень круто, что застройщику запретили лепить муравейники прямо на набережной! Теперь осталось придумать, как сохранить историческое здание и не отдать его на растерзание ещё каким-нибудь жадным мудакам.


The giant burn scar on Australia’s Kangaroo Island is horrific

The giant burn scar on Australia's Kangaroo Island is horrific

One-third of Australia’s Kangaroo Island is now charred.

That means some 600 square miles of the western side of the island — which teems (or once did) with forests, woodlands, and koalas — have been consumed by bushfires. Most of the fire has burned since the New Year, as seen in satellite images. 

Like on the Australian mainland eight miles to the north, profound drought amplified by extreme, record-breaking heat primed the bushlands to burn. 2019 was Australia’s hottest and driest year on record, creating conditions for flames that Australian fire experts have called «unprecedented.»

For decades, Australian researchers have warned that hotter climes will increase the odds of larger and more frequent flames.  Read more…

5 cool CES announcements you might actually see in 2020

5 cool CES announcements you might actually see in 2020

The annual Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas is always a showcase for things you might not ever get to use. 

To clarify, we love seeing wild concept devices that can range from quirky to transformative. But it’s easy to walk away from CES each year feeling like you’ll have to wait forever to actually get functional and affordable versions of what was on display. Luckily, there are also plenty of finished (or close to finished) products at the show and that’s what we’re here to highlight.

They might not all be especially cheap or practical, but these devices shown at CES 2020 will actually be out in … 2020.  Read more…

Amazon обвинил принадлежащий PayPal скидочный сервис Honey в небезопасности

Amazon обвинил принадлежащий PayPal скидочный сервис Honey в небезопасности, сообщает

Перед рождеством Amazon разослал своим пользователям предупреждение о том, что расширение для поиска скидок и купонов Honey небезопасно. В компании заявили, что Honey отслеживает покупки пользователей, собирает данные об истории заказов и отложенных товарах, а также может читать и изменять данные на любых посещённых веб-сайтах.

Сервис Honey с ноября 2019 года принадлежит платёжной системе PayPal, купившей его за $4 млрд. Сервис предоставляет пользователям скидки, купоны и услуги по сравнению цен в интернете. Ежемесячная аудитория Honey составляет около 17 млн человек, а число партнёрских интернет-магазинов и курьерских служб достигает 30 тыс. В 2018 году компания предоставила скидки на общую сумму в $1 млрд.

При этом у Amazon есть похожий собственный сервис Amazon Assistant. Кроме того, Amazon и PayPal конкурируют в области онлайн-платежей.

Представитель Amazon заявил, что цель компании — предупредить клиентов о расширениях, собирающих личные данные о покупках без разрешения. При этом он не стал объяснять, почему компания решила, что Honey представляет угрозу для безопасности пользователей.

ЕЭК рассмотрит возможность запрета никотиносодержащих смесей на территории ЕАЭС

Европейская экономическая комиссия (ЕЭК) рассмотрит возможность запрета никотиносодержащих смесей на территории стран Еврайзийского экономического союза (ЕАЭС), сообщает «Прайм».

В пресс-служба ЕЭК рассказали, что совместно с государствами-участниками ЕАЭС рассмотрят возможность полного запрета некурительных никотиносодержащих смесей. При этом там добавили, что пока что в повестке такой вопрос не стоит.

Ранее премьер-министр России Дмитрий Медведев поручил главе Роспотребнадзора Анне Поповой проработать запрет никотиносодержащих смесей на территории стран ЕАЭС.

«У нас границ нет, поэтому, если продукт останется в другой стране, эту дрянь будут завозить. Подготовьте такие решения», — сказал он Поповой.

Walmart is now using robots to fulfill grocery orders

Walmart is now using robots to fulfill grocery orders

Walmart’s secret weapon in its battle with Amazon for grocery supremacy? Robots. 

Alphabot is being used at a 20,00-square-foot warehouse to fulfill grocery orders for a Walmart Supercenter in Salem, New Hampshire. According to Walmart, the system uses «autonomous carts to retrieve ambient, refrigerated, and frozen items ordered for online grocery» and delivers them to an associate (aka a human) who checks the order for accuracy.

Brian Roth, a senior manager in Walmart’s U.S. pickup automation and digital operations department, said in a press release that Alphabot helps streamlines the online grocery pickup and delivery process, which «will lower dispense times, increase accuracy and improve the entirety of online grocery. And it will help free associates to focus on service and selling, while the technology handles the more mundane, repeatable tasks.” Read more…

Tons of games are on sale in the Nintendo eShop for a limited time

Tons of games are on sale in the Nintendo eShop for a limited time

If there’s one thing that’s super frustrating about being a Nintendo fan, it’s that their games almost never go on sale (and when they do, it’s usually like, $3 off — pitiful). Which is a shame, because Nintendo puts out some of the best game titles ever (The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Super Mario Odyssey, Fire Emblem: Three Houses, etc.) on one of the best consoles ever (the Nintendo Switch). 

While that non-sale pattern may never fully end, right now fans can bask in Nintendo’s surprise New Year sale (ends on 1/16), where a bunch of Switch titles are discounted for up to 30% off. If you’re wondering if this is a big deal — yes, it is.   Read more…

Who Is on the Front Lines of the Sneaker Bot War?

The easiest analogy to explain the reselling of sneakers is concert tickets; they often sell for more then their retail price, and some people use automated bots to buy them. The ticketing industry and the footwear industry are both plagued by the issue of bots.

Retailers, brands, and designers often speak out about the issue, including KAWS who recently posted saying he was cancelling and blocking orders made by bots. Berrics tricked one bot user into spending $11,000 on one shoe, while Kith used a similar bait-and-switch tactic to dupe someone into buying 21 pairs, or $1,700 worth of “Wheat” Jordan 1s.

All the while, bot services abound, as well as YouTube tutorials on how to use them. It’s an ongoing grapple, with both sides consistently re-positioning to gain new ground.

So who is on the front lines of the sneaker bot war?

A sneaker bot is an application, or an automated script, which is used to speed up the checkout process when buying products online. While any computer can run a bot, servers are commonly used for speed.

Sneaker bots allow facilitate the purchasing of extremely limited items; in some cases these products make their way to the aftermarket where they are sold for profit. Many of these items are nearly impossible to buy without using bots, given that others are simultaneously “botting” the same items, so they sell out very fast.

The most commonly botted sites are Supreme, Footsites (Foot Locker, Champs, Eastbay and Footaction), and Shopify stores like YeezySupply and Dover Street Market, given that they regularly drop covetable items.

In a nutshell, you enter your information into the bot (like your credit card details, name, delivery address etc) and then instruct the bot what to buy – this can be done in multiple ways, but the most common is to enter a URL link or keywords into the bot. Buyers will often search for early information (like the product URL) from so-called “cook groups,” which provide support to botters.

Once the bot is initiated, it will automate the checkout process and purchase items quicker than is humanly possible – bots can checkout items in as little as 0.2 seconds.

As Erik Fagerlind from Sneakersnstuff previously pointed out to Highsnobiety: “In order for any release to actually be fair, everyone has to be using the same speed of internet. Moreover, everybody must be the same physical distance away from the servers, as that also effects the amount of time it takes to be first in line.”

Although it sounds fairly simple, using sneaker bots can actually become quite complicated, as you usually have to use proxies and a server alongside the bot. A server is a virtual PC that you can use to run bots on, increasing their speeds and connection to the site. Proxies are unique IP addresses that can be used to make you seem like you are multiple people. If you wanted to mass-enter into an online queue to buy YEEZYs, for instance, more entries result in higher chances of completing your purchase. If you don’t use proxies to appear as multiple buyers, the site is able to identify all entries are coming from one source, resulting in an IP ban.

No, they don’t, as botters are now competing with other botters. Some site, such as adidas, YeezySupply and Nike, release their products with a raffle-based system. Each buyer enters a queue and then a small amount of people are randomly selected to purchase the item. While this might sound like it could eliminate the success of bots, this isn’t the case, as they are also used to put mass entries into queues and raffles. So, while bots do not guarantee success, they drastically increase your chances of success.

Bots aren’t illegal, but they do go against a lot of sites’ terms and conditions. Most sites actively make changes to try and combat sneaker bots. Supreme, Shopify, Nike, and adidas are very aware of bots, and regularly update their online protection against them. However, bots are usually quick to update their operating software, too, in order to bypass any new protective measures. These updates usually entail changes in coding that aim to tell the difference between a bot and a human user. Although sneaker bots are legal, this must not be confused with ticketing bots, which are illegal in the USA.

We spoke to Simon Lister, the marketing director at End Clothing, who says that sneaker bots are a “big focus” and that they’ve “implemented a number of solutions designed to make life more difficult for bots.” When End release limited products, they do so through their new Launches Platform. Instead of having manic FCFS (first come, first served) online releases where bots will triumph, End have decided to let their customers enter a raffle – the lucky winners will be able to purchase the limited item. Simon asserts that releasing limited products like this is a way of “ensuring fairness for customers.” A lot of other retailers have since followed suit.

Chris Bone, general manager of Livestock, shares a critical outlook on sneaker bots, referring to bot users as “vampires” who “suck the life out of whatever it is they’re trying to make a buck off.” Bone mentions that in-store releases and raffles are the way forward to combat the issue, stating that Livestock is constantly “working to get these releases into the right hands.”

Some retailers are now also implementing CAPTCHAs onto their site to try and stop bots. Supreme recently tried this tactic, though it wasn’t successful – bots now allow you to login to Gmail accounts, and if enough activity is monitored on the email account, the site will not ask you to solve a captcha.

We also spoke to Simon Bus from SNIPES, who mentions that the brand “uses a market-leading system to successfully block bots,” and that “suspicious orders, which were classified technically flawless, are edited by our staff.” This means that even if you manage to get passed their anti-bot protection, your order is still at risk of being cancelled.

Highsnobiety also reached out to JD Sports, Dover Street Market, and Foot Locker, who all declined to comment on what measures they are taking to combat sneaker bots.

The best sneaker bots are sold out. One well-known example retails for £300 and is one of the most popular and successful bots; it is so hard to get that you will probably end up paying at least £4,000 to buy the bot from a reseller. Ironically, all of the best performing bots are extremely hard to get at retail – it is actually harder to purchase the best bots at retail value than it is to get an average pair of collectible sneakers like YEEZYs. Though the bots occasionally restock, due to the unprecedented demand for them, they sell out in seconds.

We tapped a UK-based bot developer who chose to remain anonymous, to ask what steps bot services are taking to stay ahead of retailers and brands. “I don’t think that retailers will ever truly win this cat and mouse game of anti-bot protection. I put it down to 2 main factors. The first being that it is difficult and time-intensive for retailers and brands to tackle “patching” the plethora of bot methods out there. People working on bypassing bot protection systems will all have their own unique take on how to get about cracking it. This is the biggest pain point for anyone providing security against bots. Secondly, where there is money… there will be a way. There is so much money to be made in the botting industry, and with bots like Cyber boasting the fact that their users collectively spent over 30 million dollars in the last year, the money is definitely there.”


We’ve never seen a better deal on Microsoft’s 128GB Surface Pro 6

We've never seen a better deal on Microsoft's 128GB Surface Pro 6

TL;DR: The 128GB Microsoft Surface Pro 6 is currently listed at just $640 on Amazon. It normally retails for $899, so you’ll be saving 29% when you take advantage of this limited-time offer.

The phrase «hitting a new low» is rarely used in a positive context. (See: Mashable’s coverage of President Donald Trump’s racist tweets and Asos’ deranged decision to sell a denim waistband.) That is, unless we’re talking about the unprecedented sale pricing of a best-in-class 2-in-1 laptop.

Amazon is now offering 29% off the Mashable’s Choice Award-winning 128GB Microsoft Surface Pro 6, bringing down its $899 MSRP to a new all-time low of just $640. In our two-ish years of covering this particular device, this is the steepest discount we’ve ever seen it get from any online retailer — yes, even counting this past Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

The Verge is calling the TV aspect of CES 2020 «a year for the masses.»

Despite incredible debuts like TVs that can physically bend (like a folding phone, but bigger), there has actually been a delightfully high focus on midrange OLED TVs that the average consumer can actually afford. LG and Sony both chipped in with news of OLED TVs under 55 inches, which is great news for apartment dwellers.

No prices or release dates have been set yet, of course. If you don’t feel like waiting, you can ease into the new norm of big-brand 4K and OLED with TVs on sale this weekend: You can snag a 75-inch Sony Bravia TV with Dolby Vision or a 65-inch Samsung QLED TV both for $1,000 off.  Read more…

Twitter Is Giving Grimes & Elon Musk Some Hilarious Baby Name Suggestions

Grimes and Elon Musk Met Gala red carpet

Ever since news surrounding Grimes and Elon Musk‘s pregnancy first broke, Twitter has been having fun wildly speculating about which bizarre name the couple may give their new earthling.

You might remember that in 2018 Grimes announced that she would be legally changing her name to “c” (lowercase and italicized), a reference to scientific shorthand for the speed of light. Musk fully supported the name-change, commenting that it “actually rox,” and that her birth name had been a curse for her since she “became sentient.”

In recent months, Musk has demonstrated a more utilitarian approach to naming, with the release of the Tesla Cyber Truck and Cyber Quad.

We’d love to be a fly on the wall as Grimes and Musk deliberated of names. Luckily, Twitter has provided more than enough suggestions to keep us entertained.

The conversation would go something like this…

В Великобритании запретили рекламу продавца компьютеров из-за гендерных стереотипов

В Великобритании запретили рекламу компании, производящей и продающей компьютерную технику, из-за гендерных стереотипов, сообщает The Independent.

По данным издания, Управление по стандартам в рекламе (Advertising Standards Authority, ASA) запретило рекламный ролик компании PC Specialist, производящей и продающей компьютерную технику.

Причиной стало то, что в рекламном ролике показаны трое мужчин, но ни одной женщины. Восемь человек пожаловались в ASA, заявив, что реклама продвигает гендерный стереотип о том, что только мужчины заинтересованы в технологиях и компьютерах.

В ответ на это в PC Specialist указали, что их продукт, брендинг и услуги разработаны с учётом целевой аудитории, которая на 87,5% состоит из мужчин. Там добавили, что в ролике не было сравнения мужчин и женщин и не утверждалось, что женщины не интересуются компьютерами.

В свою очередь, в ASA посчитали, что ролик концентрируется на образах мужчин, которые добиваются успеха в различных привлекательных карьерах при использовании техники компании. Поэтому там заключили, что спорная реклама подразумевает возможность добиться успеха в этих ролях только для мужчин.

Honey browser extension was a security risk during the holiday season, says Amazon

Honey browser extension was a security risk during the holiday season, says Amazon

Millions of holiday deal hunters may have been hit with a strange warning from Amazon over the holidays.

The browser extension Honey, a popular shopping aid that enables price comparisons between marketplaces, searches for discount codes, and offers myriad other ways to save a buck or two while online shopping, was flagged as a security risk for users who had it enabled when they checked Amazon in late December, according to a report from Wired

According to Amazon, users should «uninstall [Honey] immediately» because it harvests data from its users as they shop online. This is curious, because Honey, which has 17 million users, was acquired by PayPal for $4 billion just a month prior to these warnings showing up. It frequently shows up on Chrome extension recommendation lists, including our own, and had never been flagged by Amazon prior to December. Read more…
