OkCupid is asking its users to forgo using a Firefox browser as a form of protest against Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich, whose support of an anti-gay marriage ballot measure in California is creating a good deal of controversy for the company

On Monday, anyone who visited OkCupid on the browser made by Mozilla, Firefox, was greeted with a message that asks them to switch browsers. “Mozilla’s new CEO, Brendan Eich, is an opponent of equal rights for gay couples,” the message reads. “We would therefore prefer that our users not use Mozilla software to access OkCupid.”

La NSA habría proporcionado un segundo generador de números aleatorios a RSA

En diciembre pasado se mencionaba que la NSA había pagado 10 millones de dólares a la compañía de seguridad RSA para que esta use el generador de números aleatorios Dual Elliptic Curve, que supuestamente incluía una puerta trasera. Hoy Reuters ha publicado información que indica que esa no fue la única herramienta desarrollada por la agencia de espionaje estadounidense que terminó siendo proporcionada por RSA a sus clientes. Según el artículo, el generador conocido como “Extended Random”, que supuestamente aumentaba la entropía al generar una llave de cifrado no sólo había sido desarrollado por la NSA, sino que hasta hacía que el trabajo de descifrar datos sea “decenas de miles” de veces más rápido.

Wil Wheaton Stands Up to Bullies With Incredible Advice

Bullies, back off. Wil Wheaton’s not having any of your mean ways

The nerd culture guru’s response to a little girl’s question at Denver Comic Con last year has recently resurfaced thanks to a Reddit post. The girl asks Wheaton how to deal with being called a nerd by her classmates

Wheaton responds by saying that “When a person makes fun of you, when a person is cruel to you, it has nothing to do with you.” He also adds: “It’s not about what you said. It’s not about what you did. It’s not about what you love. It’s about them feeling bad about themselves.” Read more…

It’s normal to see head trauma — decapitations included — inflicted on zombies on The Walking Dead, but when was the last time you saw someone lose a head on Nickelodeon?

Well, if you watched the Kids’ Choice Awards on Saturday, you maybe have been shocked to see magician David Blaine become headless in front of an audience of confused children and parents as actor Andy Samberg screamed in horror into a microphone.

That TV moment, as well as Nick’s strong social media strategy going into the ceremony, helped the Kids’ Choice Awards rank No. 1 on Nielsen‘s weekly Twitter TV Ratings. Read more…

Could the Next-Gen iPhone Look Like This?

Feed-twFeed-fb

A designer has taken a sketch of the alleged iPhone 6 design specs that leaked last week, and turned it into a full-blown concept photo to highlight what the next generation Apple smartphone might look like

Alleged schematics of a 4.7-inch and 5.7-inch iPhone 6 were first published in the Japanese Mac magazine, MacFan. Those images were then republished in the Japanese Mac blog Mac Otakara and on MacRumors.

The schematics show off a thinner, slimmer iPhone that matches some of the design languages showcased in the iPad Air. The schematics dictate that the iPhone 6 — also referred to as the iPhone Air — would be 7.1mm thick, compared to the 7.6mm thick iPhone 5S. Its edges are also slightly curved, and instead of two buttons for adjusting the volume (the “+” and “-” functions), it will be baked into just one button Read more…

Phil Spencer promete que los juegos serán la auténtica prioridad de Microsoft

Filed under: ,

¿Para qué puede querer alguien comprar una videoconsola? Exactamente: para jugar. Porque quien quiera un DVR o un reproductor Blu-ray, tiene incontables opciones más económicas en el mercado. Esto, sin embargo, no es algo que terminó de entrar totalmente en la cabeza de Microsoft cuando se enfrascó en el desarrollo de su Xbox One, cuyo enfoque tal vez terminó yéndose un poco por cerros lejanos en lugar de centrarse en lo que de verdad importa, que son los juegos. Por fortuna, Phil Spencer tiene las cosas claras, y así ha querido expresarlo nada más comunicarse su nombramiento como nuevo jefe de la división Xbox:

Este año pasado ha sido una experiencia de crecimiento a nivel personal y para todo el equipo Xbox. Hemos recibido impresiones, mejorado nuestros productos y renovado nuestra atención en lo que de verdad importa, nuestro cliente. Nuestra misión es crear el mejor equipo del mundo, trabajar duro para cumplir las elevadas expectativas de una base de fans apasionada, crear los mejores juegos y entretener y dirigir la innovación técnica. Esta renovación de nuestro enfoque y nuestra misión será parte fundamental de cómo dirigiré el programa Xbox.

Nos da en la nariz que Spencer se ha dado cuenta de cuál es la pata que cojea en esta mesa.

‘We Are Just Humans’: Portrait Project Highlights Ethnic Diversity

Pantone is known for its color matching system, often used in fashion, printing and painting. But Angélica Dass is using the famous swatches for something even more exciting: creating a dialogue around ethnic diversity.

The Madrid-based photographer (pictured above) has been working on her project Humanae since April 2012, taking portraits of people and matching their skin tones to Pantone hues to show how wide-ranging the human spectrum really is. There are now more than 2,000 photographs on the project’s Tumblr.

“The inspiration for this project comes from my family roots,” Dass tells Mashable. “I am the granddaughter of black and native Brazilians, and the daughter of a black father adopted by a white family. So, I am a mixture of diverse pigmentsHumanae is a pursuit for highlighting our true colors, rather than the untrue and clichéd red and yellow, black and white.” Read more…
