Nintendo is killing its Miiverse social network

Nintendo is killing its Miiverse social network
Nintendo has announced that Miiverse, its quirky social network launched alongside the Wii U, is shutting down this year. The Wii U’s chat app and TVii television service are also set to end alongside it on November 8th, though the announcement has only been made in Japan so far; the TVii service in the US was entirely separate and closed down over two years ago. Miiverse was most notable for the extraordinary hand-drawn posts that would filter into Wii U and 3DS games that supported the serv…

Canon’s new mirrorless camera is like an M5 in a smaller (and cheaper) body

Canon’s new mirrorless camera is like an M5 in a smaller (and cheaper) body
Canon has announced a new mirrorless camera called the M100. If you were expecting a break from the “small brick” design that Canon uses for all but one of its mirrorless cameras... you must be new here. This is a simple, $599 (with a kit lens) followup to the two-year-old M10, through and through. But with a similar makeup to the M5, which is decidedly Canon’s most exciting mirrorless camera, the M100 might be a little more than meets the eye, as well as an affordable way to ease into Canon’…

Western Digital buys Upthere to build better cloud storage features

Western Digital buys Upthere to build better cloud storage features
Western Digital has long been the go-to name for physically backing up your files — and a new acquisition means it’s now looking to take on cloud storage, too. The company announced today that it’s purchased Upthere, which offers apps that sync files and photos across devices, and it intends to continue building out the service. Upthere was founded in 2011 but only went public with its first apps in 2015. It’s been quiet since then, which suggests the company’s apps didn’t catch on. Upthere p…

Cloud Smart Series: How to Drilldown into your Cloud Insights
by Katie Lenahan | Director of Marketing | Cloud Cruiser  |  @katieoncloud Nowadays, it seems like there’s an app to analyze just about everything you do: how many steps you’ve taken, how much REM sleep you got last night, how influential you are on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn. Analytics are pervasive – monitoring, measuring, and influencing every aspect of our personal and business lives. And while analytics have certainly made our lives easier in a lot of ways, sometimes it’s just too many…

Puretta promises to clean the poop particles from your toothbrush

Puretta promises to clean the poop particles from your toothbrush
Where do you store your toothbrush? Mine is often stored in an old, toothpaste-stained salsa jar (label removed) next to a mug of hydrogen peroxide, where I leave my retainer to soak. These are precariously placed in the top-left corner of my pedestal sink, a decidedly bad place to store anything of importance. But I keep my toothbrush on the farthest left ledge of the tiny sink because I’m driven by fear — fear of poop particles and all other manner of germ accumulation that happens in the o…

China is forcing internet companies to end online anonymity

China is forcing internet companies to end online anonymity
China is cracking down on censorship once again, but this time things are a touch more serious. According to new rules published by China’s main internet censor last Friday, netizens who want to post comments online will now have to register with their real names. They can still use pseudonyms, but those names are tied to their real identities. These new rules come ahead of the communist party’s 19th National Congress, which convenes this autumn and is usually a time when the regime tightens …

Ecommerce & Entrepreneurial Insights: Audience Survey Results for 2017
Entrepreneurship can be a lonely journey. Many of us start businesses on our own without the help of partners, mentors, instructors or teachers and we fight our own way through the hustle and grind that it takes to get a business up and running. Everyone who’s started their own business knows that it’s not easy, and when you’re pursuing the journey alone it can seem even more difficult because you may not have connections to reach out to, mentors to guide you and other entrepreneurs to share exp…

DJI update removes plugins that shared user data without their knowledge

DJI update removes plugins that shared user data without their knowledge
DJI says a third-party company collected data about drone users without their permission, and it's now revoking the plugin's access in a new software update. The company clarified the situation in a blog post today, saying that a third-party plugin called Jspot was used in its DJI GO and DJI GO 4 apps for Android to help serve push notifications when video files were uploaded to DJI’s SkyPixel video sharing platform. Although Jspot wouldn't have needed much data to complete the job, DJI says…
