Futurista DC of the Day: Philips Urban Bee Hive
The design of the beehive is unconventional, appealing, and respects the natural behavior of the bees. It consists of two parts: entry passage and flower pot outside, and glass vessel containing an array of honeycomb frames, inside. The glass shell filters light to let through the orange wavelength which bees use for sight. The frames are provided with a honeycomb texture for bees to build their wax cells on. Smoke can be released into the hive to calm the bees before it is opened, in keeping with established practice.

This is a sustainable, environmentally friendly product concept that has direct educational effects. The city benefits from the pollination, and humans benefit from the honey and the therapeutic value of observing these fascinating creatures in action. As global bee colonies are in decline, this design contributes to the preservation of the species and encourages the return of the urban bee.

To make their hives, bees produce wax and propolis, a resinous mixture that varies with the bees’ environment and diet. Propolis has a structural function but is also believed to inhibit harmful pathogens in the hive and is sold as an alternative medicine. Once the health benefits of honey and propolis are better understood, the urban beehive could also have a role in the home apothecary.

Far-future design concepts
The urban beehive is part of the Microbial Home Probe, a far-future design concept. It is not intended as a production prototype nor will it be sold as a Philips product. Like past Probe Design Concepts that have stimulated discussion around a range of issues, this concept is testing a possible future – not prescribing one.

Animal Copyrights

The famous monkey business story eventually got its legal epilogue. For what is worth, the US court has decided that selfies including other “works of art” made by animals cannot be claimed for copyrights. Neither us nor animals cannot claim copyright or any other rights in these cases.

This is definitely a bad news for photographer David Slater. He was hoping to either earn some money himself…

http://bit.ly/19eoKXf

Lo smartphone è strumento che spesso incoraggia a litigare con il proprio partner. Questo almento secondo un sondaggio condotto nel mese di novembre dal sito di Victoria Milan, che ha rivelato come il 45% delle persone hanno avuto discussioni con il proprio partner perché l’altra persona prestava troppa attenzione al proprio telefono cellulare.

Ma non è questo l’unico modo in cui i nostri smartphone danno una mano alle nostre tendenze infedeli. L’App Store e il Google Play sono entrambi pieni di applicazioni progettate per aiutarvi a farla franca. Il sito Business Insider le ha raccolte in un articolo mostrando così le tante applicazioni che consentono ai “colpevoli” di non essere scoperti.

Guía práctica para proteger tu celular de las aplicaciones maliciosas

Debido al aumento del uso de smartphones entre los usuarios de teléfonos móviles, es que también se está dando una mayor incidencia en aplicaciones maliciosas que atacan y dañan los sistemas operativos, en muchas ocasiones dejando inservible el aparato.

Recomendaciones para proteger tu dispositivo a la hora de adquirir una app.

Primero tienes que saber que no son virus, sino malware, no es otra cosa que aplicaciones malintencionadas creadas por usuarios avanzados en programación con el fin de sacar algún tipo de beneficio a costa de los usuarios.

No descargues en sitios no oficiales. Aunque los sitios oficiales no garantizan nada al 100 por ciento, suelen estar menos poblados de amenazas que los que no lo son.

Investiga al fabricante. Antes de realizar la descarga, asegúrate que el fabricante o distribuidor sean de confianza. Si llegas hasta una web corporativa bien trabajada, será más probable que sea lícita.

Busca comentarios sobre la app. Seguramente otros usuarios han tenido experiencias previas con esa app en concreto. Si es maliciosa o no funciona bien, seguro que encuentras referencias.

Usa un scanner de malware. Instala y configura una herramienta, antivirus, para cuidar tu smartphone, para que analice las aplicaciones descargadas en busca de malware. Existen antivirus para cada sistema operativo, ya sea para Android, Windows phone e iOS.

Lo barato sale caro. Desconfía de versiones baratas, ya que aquellas aplicaciones que, normalmente, tienen un coste elevado y las encuentras en “promoción”, muchas veces se trata de versiones falsas que sólo pretenden infectar tu dispositivo móvil.

No comprar o descargar todo lo que ponga a nuestro paso. Parte de ser un usuario cuidadoso y responsable,recae en no instalar todas las aplicaciones que encuentras en el market, pues aunque tengan buena pinta, es importante primero informarte.

Android. El sistema operativo de Google, es el más atracado por este tipo de aplicaciones, por lo que si tiene un Smartphone con android, lo mejor que estés más atento a lo que descargas.

Sé solidario. Si tú fuiste víctima de una aplicación con malware es bueno que también agregues un comentario acerca de dicha app, para que otros usuarios estén prevenidos y no la descarguen.

¿Has tenido problemas con una app maliciosa? ¿Cuál fue?

Apple Has To Sell 6 Million iPhones This Weekend, Or Else Wall Street Will Be Annoyed (AAPL)

The iPhone 5S and 5C are officially available for purchase this morning.

How many will Apple sell during the first weekend of sales?

Apple analysts have relatively conservative forecasts, calling for 5 million units at the low end, and 7.75 million units at the high end.

Brian Blair at Wedge Partners summed up analyst sentiment best, writing, “Anything less than 5 million would be a clear negative and anything over 6 could be a significant catalyst for the stock.”

Last year Apple sold 5 million iPhones during the opening weekend, so Apple is expected to beat that.
