This Robot Buddy Speaks In GIFs, Plays Music Requests And Dances

Back on December 7, 2016, Abhishek Singh promised Reddit that he was building a robot  that would respond to commands with GIFs. The post itself was a series of GIFs and photos showing the blueprints, design stages and components.  On Thursday, Singh released a video showing the fully functioning robot , named Peeqo, fitted with voice commands, emotive responses, and even the ability to sync with Spotify and play your music requests.  — This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Greenpeace Says Netflix Binge-Watching May Not Be Good For The Environment

Our video streaming addiction might be affecting the world outside our living rooms more than we thought. Greenpeace released a report  on Monday rating video streaming companies by carbon footprint, and a couple big ones, including Netflix and Hulu, didn’t fare too well. That’s because all those “Stranger Things” and “Gilmore Girls” episodes are delivered to our phones, laptops and TVs via massive servers that use up a lot of energy, which can come from renewable sources or nonrenewable ones, like coal.  Although the company has made bold claims about its energy efficiency in the past ― stating that watching Netflix is greener than breathing ― it received an overall D grade. Hulu fared even worse with an F, while Amazon Prime received a C. Out of streaming companies included, YouTube (owned by Google, whose energy use the organization praises) earned the best grade ― an A. Greenpeace evaluated companies on factors including energy mix, commitments to renewable energy, transparency on energy sources and advocacy for clean energy.  Netflix declined to offer any comment on the report.  The company’s poor score is due in large part to its reliance on Amazon Web Services, which Greenpeace criticized for its “almost complete” lack of transparency about its energy footprint, and for operating in states such as Virginia that rely heavily on nonrenewable power.

This is the Technology That is Propelling Us Into the Future

What other technology innovations have had as much impact and influence as the iPhone? originally appeared on Quora – the knowledge sharing network where compelling questions are answered by people with unique insights . Answer by Connie Guglielmo , Editor-in-Chief, CNET News, on Quora . What other technology innovations have had as much impact and influence as the iPhone?  This is a big question so it really depends on your time frame (I mean, Edison and his lightbulb was a big thing). If we look at what’s going on in tech today, I would point to the work Tesla is doing to convince people that battery-powered cars with varying degrees of autonomous tech is the wave of the future.

Social Media Makes Us Feel Inferior, So Here’s A Cheery Song About It!

Your social media accounts are often tiny windows into your own psyche.

How I Reclaimed my Social Media Sanity and Made Facebook Bearable Once Again

Like any addiction, I knew what I was doing was wrong. But I just couldn’t help myself. I’d do it first thing in the morning while still in bed, after picking up the phone to disable my alarm. While writing a dry proposal in the office, absently-mindedly pressing Cmd+T to open a new Chrome tab without making a conscious decision to do so. Or late at night on the sofa with my iPad, when I was supposedly reading an e-book. For almost ten years now, I’ve found myself browsing Facebook, unaware that I am doing so

How To Break Free From Your Computer Operating System — If You Dare

Kia Farhang did it. Weary of the “awful” hour-long updates his Windows computer forced him to periodically endure, usually during prime work hours, Farhang recently abandoned his PC operating system. He switched to Linux, an open-source OS. The result? Linux turned his laptop into a “very good Mac OS clone,” he says.
