  A restaurant in Paris is offering flavours that you can inhale, instead of tasting them physically.The act of breathing in flavours is known as 'whaffing,' which is being predicted as a futuristic way of eating.  巴黎一家餐厅新近推出“吸入式食物”,食客不用动口就能品尝美食。据预计,被称为“吸食”的吸入法将成为未来的进食方式。  A contraptionthat resembles a goldfish bowl, called LeWhaf, is wafting smoke of lemon tart flavour, which is being sampled by a food expert.She says the lemon tart is zingyand fresh. Next, a whaf of tarte tatinfills her mouth with caramel, the Daily Mail reports.  这种被称为LeWhaf的吸入式食物机形似一个鱼缸。一位食品专家用这台装置进行了现场展示,食物机向外喷吐出“浮云”版的柠檬馅饼。据英国《每日邮报》报道,体验者表示,柠檬馅饼美味新鲜,紧接着,一股烤焦糖苹果派的香气吸入嘴里。  This invention is the brainchildof a Harvard University professor and aerosol scientist David Edwards, aged 49 years.Imagine a restaurant where, instead of sitting at a table, you walk around, he says.  这款装置的发明者是哈佛大学气溶胶产品教授大卫 爱德华兹,现年49岁。他说,假设有这样一个餐厅,人们都不必坐在餐桌前,而是随便走走就能享用美食。  Instead of eating food, you're breathing it in as you walk from room to room, each with a different flavour. Celery in one. Steak in another. Then pate.Edwards is adamantthat this smoky little bowl will go on sale in France this autumn for less than 85 pounds and quickly catch on around the world.  无需碗筷,你只要在滋味各异的房间转转,就能吸入美食。比如芹菜室,牛排室,还有肉酱室。爱德华兹坚信,这种吸入式食物机今年秋天将在法国上市,售价低于85英镑,并将迅速风靡全球。 /201102/125009

  Five years ago, Facebook turned down Brian Acton for a job.五年前,Facebook曾经拒绝了软件工程师布莱恩o阿克顿的求职。The Orlando, Fla.-raised software engineer had worked at Yahoo YHOO 0.60% for over a decade when he decided to take time off. For two years he did, exploring places as far-flung as Antarctica before returning to Silicon Valley to work again. After companies like Facebook FB -0.24% and Twitter TWTR 3.01% rejected him, he started building WhatsApp, a mobile messaging service that eventually exploded, amassing 500 million users worldwide. Then last February, Facebook stunned the world when it announced it was scooping up WhatsApp for a jaw-dropping billion – the most it had ever paid for a startup. By one estimate, Acton will be worth at least billion when the deal closes, which is expected later this year.国佛罗里达州奥兰多市,在雅虎(Yahoo)工作了十多年后,阿克顿决定歇一歇。他在两年的时间里四处游历,甚至远赴南极,后来才回到硅谷重新开始工作。先后遭到Facebook和Twitter等公司拒绝后,阿克顿开始开发移动短信务WhatsApp,结果一炮而红,在全球吸引了5亿用户。今年二月,Facebook宣布豪掷190亿美元收购WhatsApp,震动了外界。这也是Facebook收购新创企业最大手笔的一次。交易预计在今年晚些时候达成,据估计,届时阿克顿的身家至少将达到30亿美元。That Facebook once rejected Acton, 42 is an irony not lost on him. But far from being bitter he says he looks forward to working with Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and crew. “We might disagree on some topics, but they understand what communication is like, and they understand the issues around privacy and security,” Acton explained Wednesday at StartX, a non-profit organization for Stanford University entrepreneurs.阿克顿明白,如今看来,他曾求职Facebook被拒颇有些讽刺意味。不过,他完全没有因此而忿忿不平。相反,他表示自己很期待与Facebook首席执行官马克o扎克伯格及其团队共事。上周三,在为斯坦福大学(Stanford University)创业者务的非营利机构StartX上,阿克顿说:“我们或许在某些问题上看法不同,但他们明白通讯是怎么回事,他们也了解与隐私和安全相关的问题。”Reaching a billion deal was a roundabout journey for Acton and Koum. For one, Acton was aly 38 when he helped build WhatsApp. Before that, he spent three years at Apple AAPL 0.39% and over 11 years at Yahoo, where he met WhatsApp CEO and cofounder Jan Koum and eventually became the company’s vice president of engineering. (Acton also weathered a divorce and had children.) It’s a different — and far longer — trajectory compared to many of today’s entrepreneurs, who jump into a startup right after college or drop out, Acton points out.阿克顿和另一位创始人库姆经历了不少曲折,才把WhatsApp发展到了作价190亿美元的规模。其一,帮助创办WhatsApp时,阿克顿已经38岁了。在此之前,他在苹果(Apple)干了三年,在雅虎干了11年多。阿克顿在雅虎结识了WhatsApp首席执行官兼联合创始人简o库姆,并最终成为WhatsApp公司负责工程设计的副总裁。(阿克顿曾经历离婚,并育有子女。)阿克顿指出,他与今天的许多创业者不同,后者大多大学毕业后就直接开始创业,甚至辍学创业。Still, Acton and Koum’s late-blooming strategy worked. With WhatsApp, they developed a dead-simple mobile app that works a lot like traditional text, or SMS messaging, allowing users to send and receive calls, , and pictures in addition to messages. (“I used to call SMS black and white,” Acton said. “We’re color.”) Because it was free, the app developed a huge following, particularly in Europe and parts of Asia, where traditional texting can be pricey. That’s despite a mobile messaging space crowded with competitors like Line, Viber and MessageMe. “It just effing works,” said Acton, explaining in semi-profane terms WhatApp’s appeal. “We don’t have a lot of gimmickry. We don’t collect messages or do anything with them. We respect our users.”不过,阿克顿和库姆大器晚成的战略行之有效。他们开发的WhatsApp是一款超级简单的移动应用,原理很像传统的手机短信,在文本信息外,用户还能发送和接收呼叫、视频和图片。(阿克顿说:“我常说短信是黑白的,而我们的务则是色的。”)因为不收费,WhatsApp吸引了大量的追捧者,尤其是在传统短信务收费较高的欧洲和亚洲,尽管移动通讯领域充斥着Line、Viber以及MessageMe等一种竞争对手。谈到WhatsApp 大受欢迎,阿克顿说道:“它就是火了。我们没有什么花招,我们也不收集信息或干那些有的没的。我们尊重我们的用户。”Talks with Zuckerberg about a potential WhatsApp acquisition began heating up in early February, when Zuck – as he is known to tech insiders – presented Acton and Koum with a hard number. “We said, ‘Oh, shit,’ We’ve got to pay attention to this,” Acton said, who recalled a mind-numbing 96-hours straight in conference rooms with a “flotilla” of lawyers as they hammered out a deal.早在今年二月初,同扎克伯格关于可能收购WhatsApp的谈判就开始升温。扎克伯格向阿克顿和库姆开出了一个确切的数字——高科技界人士都知道,这是他的一贯做法。阿克顿回忆道:“我们说:‘靠’,我们得好好琢磨琢磨这事。”于是他们同“一大帮”律师一起,在会议室整整煎熬了96个小时,直到他们制定出交易方案。For now, the thing Acton looks forward to most isn’t working with the employer who once rejected him – or even getting to 600 million WhatsApp users – it’s closing the deal with Facebook. Admitted Acton: “When it closes, it’ll be with a sense of relief.眼下,阿克顿最期待的,不是与曾拒绝自己的雇主共事,甚至也不是使WhatsApp的用户数增长到6亿,而是与Facebook达成交易。阿克顿坦言:“等到交易达成,我肯定会感到如释重负。” /201406/304907

  Thousands of workers at Foxconn in China have gone on strike over working conditions related to production of the iPhone 5.富士康在中国的数千名工人对生产iPhone 5的工作条件进行了罢工。Three to four thousand employees walked out of Foxconn#39;s Zhengzhou factory on Friday, according to China Labor Watch. It said Foxconn and Apple had ;raised overly strict demands on product quality; without providing adequate training.根据中国劳工观察,三至四千名员工上周五走出了富士康在郑州的工厂。它说富士康和苹果“质量控制标准过于严苛”,却没有提供足够的培训。The strike comes just weeks after Foxconn was forced to close a plant in Taiyuan, when a brawl involving as many as 2,000 workers left a number of people needing hospital treatment.当涉及2000多名工人的斗殴使得许多人需要住院治疗,富士康被迫了关闭了在太原的工厂。罢工仅仅发生在这之后的几个星期。China Labor Watch, a labor rights group which monitors factory conditions in China, said Friday#39;s strike came after Foxconn and Apple introduced new quality controls, while at the same time Foxconn forced employees to work during a public holiday.中国劳工观察,监控工厂的中国劳工权利团体说,周五的罢工是在富士康和苹果提出了新的质量控制标准,同时富士康又强迫员工在国庆假期进行加班。;Foxconn raised overly strict demands on product quality without providing worker training for the corresponding skills. This led to workers turning out products that did not meet standards, and ultimately put a tremendous amount of pressure on workers,; China Labor Watch said in a statement.“富士康提出了关于产品质量过于严苛的要求,却没有提供相应技能培训,这导致生产出的产品不符合标准,最终给工人造成了巨大的压力,”中国劳工观察在一份声明中说。;Additionally, quality control inspectors fell into to conflicts with workers and were beaten up multiple times by workers. Factory management turned a deaf ear to complaints about these conflicts and took no corrective measures.;“此外,质量控制检查员陷入与工人的冲突,并多次被工人殴打。工厂管理者对这些冲突的控诉充耳不闻,且没有采取正确的措施。”The majority of Foxconn employees taking part in the strike worked on the ;onsite quality control line;, according to China Labor Watch. It said the strike meant iPhone 5 production lines were ;in a state of paralysis for the entire day;.根据中国劳工观察,富士康“现场质量控制线”上工作的大部分员工都参加了罢工。它说,罢工意味着iPhone5生产线“一整天处于瘫痪状态”。In September Foxconn was forced to shut a plant in Taiyuan, northern China, after a mass brawl. As many as 2,000 workers were said to have been involved in the violence, with pictures showing smashed windows and riot police at the site. Geoffrey Crothall, a spokesman for the pressure group China Labor Bulletin, said at the time that Foxconn workers were becoming increasingly emboldened.在大规模的斗殴后,九月富士康被迫关闭了在中国北部太原的工厂。多达2000名工人据说参与了暴力斗殴,照片显示了现场砸坏的窗户和防暴警察。中国劳工权利团体发言人Geoffrey Crothall说,当时富士康工人变得越来越大胆。;They#39;re more willing to stand up for their rights, to stand up to injustice,; he said.“他们更愿意为自己的权利站出来,为不公正的待遇站出来,”他说。 /201210/202661One of the world’s first games, Tetris, has hit the big three-oh today, and its brand is anything but old school.位居世界上首批视频游戏之列的俄罗斯方块(Tetris)已经迈入而立之年,但它的品牌一点也不显老。To celebrate, there’s a series of Meet Up events being conducted around the world using the hashtag #WeAllFitTogether. In April, the world’s largest game of Tetris was played on the side of a building at Drexel University using LED lights, breaking a world record.为了庆祝它的三十岁生日,世界各地正在举行一系列主题标签为 #WeAllFitTogether(意为我们严丝合缝)的玩家聚会。今年4月份,德雷塞尔大学(Drexel University)一栋建筑物的外墙在LED灯的帮助下,化身为世界上最大的俄罗斯方块游戏,规模打破了世界纪录。But what’s kept people swiping and clicking to ensure each row of blocks stays aligned and disappears into the virtual ether since its development in 1984 Soviet Russia? A combination of new platforms and a mesmerizing psychological appeal.但自从这款游戏于1984年在前苏联诞生以来,究竟是什么让人们移动手指,不停地点击,以确保每一行方块保持一致,然后消失在虚拟以太之中?:这是新平台和令人着迷的心理诉求相结合的结果。Maya Rogers, the CEO of Blue Planet Software, the sole agent of the Tetris brand, said the protection of the game’s core over the last three decades has aided its longevity. “It appeals to people from all ages and all demographics,” she said.俄罗斯方块品牌独家代理商、蓝色星球软件公司(Blue Planet Software)CEO玛雅o罗杰斯表示,过去三十年来,这款游戏一直精心保护着它的核心玩法,进而成就了长盛不衰的传奇。她说:“它对所有年龄,所有人群都有吸引力。”As mobile and social become two of the largest sources for gaming these days, Tetris isn’t showing any signs of losing its appeal. Currently appearing on over 50 different gaming platforms, from the 1983 Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) to smartphones, Tetris is sold on over 425 million mobile devices. More than 20 billion games of Tetris Battle have been played on Facebook, too.现如今,虽然移动和社交已经成为最大的两个游戏来源,但俄罗斯方块的吸引力并没有显露出任何衰减迹象。从1983年的任天堂系统(NES)到智能手机,俄罗斯方块目前出现在50多种不同的游戏平台之上,超过4.25亿移动设备用户购买了这款游戏。Facebook用户也已经玩了超过200亿盘俄罗斯方块对战版游戏(Tetris Battle)。Tetris has also had a smooth transition on to mobiles phones and appears inside the top 100 paid applications on the Apple AAPL -0.28% iTunes App store. “We’ve always made sure that we’re on every platform,” said Rogers.此外,俄罗斯方块已经平稳地过渡到了智能手机,目前已跻身苹果公司(Apple)iTunes应用商店付费应用排行榜前100名。罗杰斯说:“我们一直确保出现在每一个平台上面。”But there’s something psychologically entrancing about the game, too, that’s kept people hooked through the years. “Play a game of Tetris,” said Rogers, “and satisfy your craving to create order out of chaos.”但这款游戏也有一种摄人心魄的魅力,让人们连续多年不知倦怠地沉溺其中。罗杰斯说:“玩一盘俄罗斯方块游戏,能够满足你在混乱中创造秩序的渴望。”One man who’s been able to do that better than anyone else in the world is Jonas Neubauer, the four-time Tetris world champion on the NES gaming system. He’s gone undefeated since the event started in 2010 and doesn’t plan on calling it quits any time soon. “You have to keep going,” he said. “You don’t stop at four.“当今之世,还没有出现比乔纳斯o纽鲍尔更好的俄罗斯方块玩家。纽鲍尔四度加冕NES游戏系统俄罗斯方块世界锦标赛冠军。自这项赛事于2010年创建以来,他还没有被击败过,而且还没有退出江湖的打算。他说:“一定得坚持下去,不能满足于四个冠军头衔,”他说。Neubauer juggles his yearly foray into the competitive world of Tetris with his job as a senior analyst at Saibus Research, an independent research and advisory firm. Although he says his passion for Tetris and his day job don’t have much in common, he does take the time to analyze his game for the sake of improvement.身为独立研究和咨询公司Saibus Research高级分析师,纽鲍尔每年都努力地在竞争激烈的俄罗斯方块世界和他的工作之间维持一种平衡。虽然他说他对俄罗斯方块的热爱和他的日常工作并没有许多共同点,但为了精益求精,纽鲍尔确实会花一些时间来分析这款游戏。Tetris, which he’s been playing for nearly his whole life, draws him back for more, year after year. “It’s so pervasive among so many age groups,” he said. “Its simplicity is almost hypnotic.”他已经玩了大半辈子俄罗斯方块,但年复一年,这款游戏总是吸引他继续玩下去。“它备受不同年龄组人群的欢迎,”他说。“它的简单性几乎有催眠作用。”Plus, there’s the added quality of playing Tetris and never feeling wholly fulfilled. “There’s no correct move that you can make,” said Neubauer. “The quest for the perfect move never ends.”另外,玩俄罗斯方块还有额外的特性:你永远都不会觉得完全满足。“从来没有什么正确的步骤,”纽鲍尔说。“对完美步骤的追求永远也不会结束。”Tom Stafford, a professor of cognitive development and psychology at Sheffield University in the U.K., says that Tetris has been around so long because it transports gamers into a different realm when they play. “It’s a world of perpetually generating uncompleted tasks,” he said.英国谢菲尔德大学(Sheffield University)认知发展和心理学教授汤姆o斯塔福德表示,俄罗斯方块长盛不衰的原因是,这款游戏能够把玩家带入一个完全不同的领域。他说:“这是一个永远产生未完成任务的世界。”As he’s said in the past, too, “Tetris is the granddaddy of puzzle games like Candy Crush saga – the things that keep us puzzling away for hours, days and weeks.”他过去也曾经说过:“俄罗斯方块是《糖果粉碎传奇》(Candy Crush Saga)这类益智游戏的鼻祖。这些游戏让我们连续几个小时,几天、甚至几个星期沉迷其中,不能自拔。”“Tetris is pure game: there is no benefit to it, nothing to learn, no social or physical consequence,” he added. “It is almost completely pointless, but keeps us coming back for more.”“俄罗斯方块是纯粹的游戏:玩它没有什么好处,没什么可学,也不会导致社交或身体方面的后果,”他补充说。“它几乎完全没有意义,但就是有一种让我们流连忘返的牵引力。”Neuberger, who even appeared in a 2011 documentary, “Ecstasy of Order: The Tetris Masters,” considers the social component of Tetris, although its played individually, a big draw. Growing up, he’d check out forums where people posted their high scores. That raised the stakes and inspired him to do even better. Now, Facebook and other social media allow that score comparison to happen even more easily.纽鲍尔甚至出现在2011年发行的纪录片《秩序的狂喜:俄罗斯方块大师》(Ecstasy of Order: The Tetris Masters)之中。在他看来,尽管俄罗斯方块是单人游戏,但它的社交属性也是一大吸引力。从小到大,他一直在游戏论坛上查看其他人发布的高分。这提升了玩游戏的利害关系,并激励他做得更好。现在,Facebook和其他社交媒体使得这种分数比较变得更加容易。With the chance to kick off a game of Tetris on a Nintendo DS, an Android, an iPad, a PC or countless other devices, a community of players has emerged in full force. “The fact that now anyone can access Tetris and play the same game has exponentially grown our community,” said Rogers. “It has no language, and no cultural barriers.”如今,任何人都有机会在便携式任天堂游戏机、安卓系统(Android)、iPad、个人电脑和其他无数设备上玩俄罗斯方块游戏,一个由玩家组成的庞大社区已经强势涌现。“任何人现在都可以访问俄罗斯方块,玩同一款游戏。这个事实促使我们的社区成倍增长,”罗杰斯说。“它没有语言和文化的障碍。”For Neubauer, there’s also the benefit of being a four-time world champion and talking about his achievements with others. “It’s a fun thing to bring up at parties,” he said.对于纽鲍尔来说,作为四届世界冠军还有一个好处就是,可以跟其他人聊自己的成就。他说:“参加聚会的时候聊起这种事很有意思。”Going forward for the brand, Rogers remains committed to Tetris’ “core gameplay” and serving a younger audience who may not have played the highly popular 1989 Game Boy version (which the Guinness World Records Gamer’s Edition lists as number six on the top selling games of all time).罗杰斯在展望这个品牌的未来时仍然致力于俄罗斯方块的“核心玩法”,并打算务于或许还没有玩过Game Boy1989版的年轻受众。根据吉尼斯世界纪录玩家版 (Guinness World Records Gamer’s Edition),这款风靡一时的游戏位列史上最畅销视频游戏排行榜的第六名。While Tetris has reached its third decade this year, Rogers says plans are in place for it to continue thriving “way beyond” even the next 30 years.虽然俄罗斯方块已经度过了30岁生日,但罗杰斯表示,这家公司已经制定了计划,希望这款游戏能够在下个30年延续它的辉煌。 /201406/304906

  At Carnegie Mellon University, robotics professor David Bourne and some of his students are working on software that enables a robot to cope with uncertainty over where a part will be on the assembly table, and to experiment with ways to put things together until they find the optimum methods. Using this learning method, a robot at CMU is able to pick up a battery from various angles and, sometimes, snap it into a Blackberry-a job most people can do intuitively. As the software improves, robots will learn faster, Prof. Bourne says. 卡内基梅隆大学(Carnegie Mellon University)的机器人学教授戴维#8226;伯恩(David Bourne)正带领学生研发一款软件,以便让机器人有能力判断应该把零部件放到什么位置,并能够探索不同的装配方式以确定最优途径。通过这种学习模式,卡内基梅隆大学研发的机器人可以从多个角度拾起一块电池,有时候甚至能把电池装到黑莓手机上。这项工作如果由人来做的话,应该是举手之劳,但机器人若能完成实属不易。伯恩教授表示,随着软件的不断完善,机器人的学习能力还会加快。 Will robots be able to bring production of such things as the iPhone to America? ;That#39;s what we#39;re working towards,; Prof. Bourne said. ;It#39;s not going to happen instantly.; 机器人的应用能够促使iPhone这类电子产品的制造回流到美国本土吗?伯恩教授表示,;这正是我们的目标,但短期之内还无法实现。; In another part of his lab, Prof. Bourne#39;s students are working on sensors that allow a robot to show a human colleague where to place parts so the robot can assemble them. 在伯恩教授实验室的另一处,他的学生们还在研究传感器技术,以便让机器人能在人类的指点下学会将一个零部件装配到特定位置。 Rodney Brooks, a former Massachusetts Institute of Technology robotics professor who helped launch the Roomba home-vacuuming robot a decade ago as a founder of iRobot Corp., believes industrial robots need to be updated to not only be smaller and nimbler, but also easier to control. 罗德尼#8226;布鲁克斯(Rodney Brooks)以前是麻省理工学院(Massachusetts Institute of Technology)的机器人学教授,协助推出了Roomba家用清洁机器人,他在10年前创立了iRobot Corp.公司。布鲁克斯认为,工业机器人需要进一步的升级换代,不但要更小巧灵活,还要更易于控制。 His Boston-based start-up, Heartland Robotics Inc., plans to introduce its first robots later this year. Dr. Brooks says they will be affordable for small manufacturers and include controls more akin to an iPhone than a mainframe computer. 布鲁克斯在波士顿新创的Heartland Robotics Inc.公司计划于今年推出第一款机器人。他说这款机器人的价格将能为小型制造商所接受,其控制界面不像大型计算机那样复杂,而是接近iPhone式的简洁方式。 Dr. Brooks refuses to say much about the machines but the goal is ;to introduce robots into places that have not been automated before, making manufacturers more efficient, their workers more productive and keeping jobs from migrating to low-cost regions.; He plans to make the robots in the U.S. 布鲁克斯不愿透露太多关于这款机器人的信息,但其目标是;让机器人进入从未涉及过的领域,让制造过程更有效率,提高工人产能,避免生产过程和就业岗位流向低成本国家。;布鲁克斯打算在美国国内生产这款机器人。 One of Dr. Brooks#39;s former students, Aaron Edsinger, has become a potential rival. When Mr. Edsinger was a doctoral student at MIT six years ago, he programmed a robot to help make a margarita. The point wasn#39;t to replace bartenders but to show that a robot could deal with a somewhat unpredictable environment. Now Mr. Edsinger heads a San Francisco-based company, Redwood Robotics, trying to develop low-cost robot arms for manufacturing and other applications. 阿隆#8226;艾幸格(Aaron Edsinger)曾是布鲁克斯的学生,现在则成了布鲁克斯的潜在竞争对手。六年前他在麻省理工学院攻读士学位时,曾给机器人编程,让其调制一杯玛格丽特鸡尾酒(margarita)。这样做的目的并非要让机器人取代酒吧调酒师,而是显示机器人能够应付一些难以预测的复杂工作环境。如今,艾幸格是旧金山Redwood Robotics公司的负责人,公司正在研究低成本的机器人手臂,用于产品制造和其他一些应用领域。 In work partly funded by Boeing Co. (BA), Julie Shah, an assistant professor in the aeronautics department at MIT, is researching ways for robots to adapt to the differing work habits of human colleagues so they can jointly assemble airplane parts. 朱丽叶#8226;莎(Julie Shah)是麻省理工学院的助教,她在从事一项由波音公司(Boeing Co.)资助的研究工作,寻找方法让机器人适应人类同事的各种工作习惯,以便与人类协同,共同装配飞机零部件。 The idea of people working hand in metal fist with robots ;is becoming less like science fiction every year,; Ms. Shah says. By James R. Hagerty and Miho Inada, The Wall Street Journal;莎表示,人类和机器人协同作业的理念;正在远离科幻小说的范畴,一年比一年变得更为现实。; /201207/189526Apple said on Thursday it had received just nine complaints about bent iPhones since it released its newly enlarged smartphones last week, after facing an internet furore over claims that the design of its 6 Plus device was fundamentally flawed.苹果(Apple)周四表示,自从上周发布最新大屏智能手机以来,该公司仅收到9笔涉及iPhone存在弯曲问题的投诉,此前,有关iPhone6 Plus存在根本缺陷的说法在互联网中甚嚣尘上。Its unrepentant response to what pundits have dubbed “bendgate” contrasts with its swift apology for the “great inconvenience” of Wednesday’s botched iPhone software update.苹果对专家们所称的“弯曲门”(bendgate)事件做出了强硬回应,与此形成对照的是,苹果迅速对周三发布的存在问题的iPhone软件更新所导致的“巨大不便”表示了道歉。“With normal use a bend in iPhone is extremely rare and through our first six days of sale a total of nine customers have contacted Apple with a bent iPhone 6 Plus,” Apple said, highlighting the array of “rigorous” physical tests that each device is subjected to before it launched. “iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus meet or exceed all of our high quality standards to endure everyday, real life use,” it said.苹果表示:“在正常使用情况下,iPhone出现弯曲的情况极其罕见,在我们产品发布后的前6天里,共有9名客户因iPhone 6 Plus弯曲问题与苹果联络。”该公司强调所有设备在发售前须经过一系列“严格”物理性能测试。该公司表示:“iPhone 6和iPhone 6 Plus达到或超出了我们所有的高质量标准,经得起日常使用。”The complaints have marred what was by other measures a successful launch for Apple. It said on Monday that it had sold 10m of its two new iPhone 6 devices in their first three days on sale.这些抱怨和投诉让苹果新机的发布失却了往日的成功光环。苹果周一表示,上市头3天,两款最新iPhone 6的销量已达到1000万部。Earlier on Thursday, Apple’s products came in for fresh criticism from a new quarter: the Federal Bureau of Investigation.周四早些时候,苹果产品还遭到另一个领域的批评:美国联邦调查局(FBI)。FBI director James Comey told reporters in Washington DC that he objected to new encryption technology for iPhones and smartphones running Google’s Android software, which the companies say bolsters customers’ security and privacy.美国联邦调查局局长詹姆斯#8226;科米(James Comey)在华盛顿特区告诉记者,他对iPhone及安卓(Android)系统的智能手机采用的最新加密技术表示反对,虽然这些公司称该技术将加强客户安全和隐私。The encryption means that data stored on the latest iPhones, if the owner uses a security passcode to lock the device, cannot be accessed by Apple itself, even if it receives a warrant.这项加密技术意味着,如果最新版iPhone用户使用安全秘钥锁闭手机,那么苹果自己将无法访问这些手机上存储的数据,即便苹果获得授权。“What concerns me about this is companies marketing something expressly to allow people to place themselves beyond the law,” Mr Comey said.科米表示:“我担心,这些企业推向市场的是明显能让人们凌驾于法律之上的产品。”Apple analysts said that the longer-term implications of the latest bout of criticism were hard to assess. Many saw its flawed software update as a more significant problem than whether iPhones can be bent in a trouser pocket.苹果分析师表示,很难判断最近的批评声浪会造成怎样的长期影响。与iPhone能不能在裤兜里被坐弯相比,很多人认为存在缺陷的软件更新是一个更重要的问题。 /201409/332501

  With 50 million users, Evernote is the pack#39;s leader. The service, available on iOS and Android, has most everything users need like the ability to organize information into individual notebooks and share with others. To avoid having to type notes, Android users can use an automated transcription service that turns speech into text -- at least in theory. However, there is no built-in equivalent for iOS users. Evernote#39;s free service limits uploads to 60 MB per month. A premium version with up to 1 GB of uploads per month costs annually. Earlier this month, Evernote suffered a black eye when it revealed that hackers had infiltrated its computer system. As a result, it had to reset all user passwords.印象笔记(Evernote)是笔记软件领域的领军者,用户高达5,000万。这款应用在iOS和安卓上都能找到。它拥有用户所需要的几乎所有功能,比如把信息组织成个人化的笔记并与他人分享。为了让用户不用手写输入笔记,安卓用户可以用它提供的自动抄录功能把讲话变成文本——至少在理论上是可行的。不过,iOS用户就无法享用同样的内置功能。印象笔记每月免费上传量是60MB。只要每年付45美元,就能享用尊享版,每月上传上限为1GB。本月初,印象笔记透露曾有黑客入侵其电脑系统。结果,它不得不重新设定了所有用户的密码。A close rival of Evernote, Simplenote offers many of the same kinds of features, but limited to iOS devices and the Web. Unlike the others, Simplenote#39;s free service comes with ads. A premium version without ads and extra features like synching with Dropbox, the online storage service, is annually. In a sign of how hot the note-taking field is, Automattic, the company behind WordPress blogging software, acquired Simplenote#39;s parent earlier this year.作为印象笔记的死对头,Simplenote的很多功能都和印象笔记类似,但它仅限于iOS设备和网络使用。跟其他务不同的是,Simplenote的免费务含有广告。而不含广告、并提供可与在线存储务Dropbox同步这类功能的尊享版则每年收费20美元。今年年初,客创建软件WordPress的母公司Automattic收购了Simplenote的母公司。笔记务领域的竞争达到何种白热化程度,这个例子可见一斑。Notability is known as a palette for annotating notes and files stored on the service. Users can highlight text, write using their finger on documents including PDFs and draw pictures. Annotated files can be saved and shared. Notability is available only as an iPad app, which costs . Because of its limited compatibility, the service is not for everyone. Schools and people in creative professions may find it highly useful (and fun).Notability是一个调色板式的软件,能为存储在内的笔记和文件添加注解,并以此而著称。用户可以让文本高亮显示,用手指在包括PDF在内的各种文件上写字、画画。加注的文件可以存储、分享。它是个只能用于iPad的应用,售价2美元。由于其兼容性有限,它并不适合所有人。而教育行业和创意行业人士可能会觉得它非常有用(而且有趣)。Catch covers most of the bases necessary in note taking service. Text, audio and photo notes can be organized into folders and tagged so that they can be easily found. Users can also create checklists, share information privately and collaborate, with each contribution listed so you know who added what. Catch#39;s free service, which limits uploads to 70 MB per month, is available on Android and iOS devices along with the Web. Premium versions with bigger uploads and extra sharing -- aimed largely at business customers - cost and 5 annually.Catch拥有笔记务所必需的大多数基本功能。文本、音频和照片笔记可整理到文件夹里,还能做好标签,以便查找。用户还能创建清单,私下分享信息,开展协作。而每个信息来源都有标注,这样就能知道谁创建了什么内容。Catch允许用户每月最多免费上传70MB内容,有安卓版、iOS版和网络版。更大上传容量和额外分享功能的尊享版主要面向商业用户,年费是45美元和145美元。Basic is the best word to describe Google#39;s foray into note taking, which is part of its Drive online storage service. Keep has a simple design and offers voice to text transcription and sharing. But compared with some rivals, it lacks some functions like the ability to categorize notes and set an alarm for reminders. It is also only available on Android 4.0 devices or higher and through the Web. Google has a reputation for introducing skeletal products and then improving them over time. But more recently, it has also developed a reputation for killing products that don#39;t work out, which doesn#39;t exactly build confidence among users who have been burned. In fact, this is Google#39;s second try at note taking after killing a previous effort, Notebook, last year.“基础之作”这个词用来形容谷歌这次挺进笔记务领域推出的产品最合适不过。 Keep是谷歌在线存储务Drive的组成部分,设计简洁,有语音文本转化和分享功能。但和一些对手相比,它缺少一些功能,比如给笔记分类,设置提醒。而且只有安卓4.0或更高版本的设备在网上才能使用。谷歌一向以推出乞丐版产品,随后不断改进而著称。不过最近,它还有了另外一个名声,就是毙掉那些不好用的产品,搞得用户焦头,信心涣散。实际上,这已经是谷歌第二次试水笔记领域了。就在去年,它刚废掉Keep的上一代产品Notebook /201303/232492

  

  

  Parents should ban electronic media during mealtimes and after bedtime as part of a comprehensive #39;family media use plan, #39; according to new recommendations from the American Academy of Pediatrics.美国儿科学会(American Academy of Pediatrics)提出的新建议,作为一项综合性的“家庭媒介使用计划”的一部分,家长应该禁止孩子在就餐时和就寝后使用电子媒介。The influential new guidelines are being spurred by a growing recognition of kids#39; nearly round-the-clock media consumption, which includes everything from television to texting and social media.之所以会提出这些颇具影响的新建议,是因为人们越来越认识到孩子会连轴转地使用电子媒介,包括从看电视到收发手机短信再到登陆社交媒体等各种活动。#39;Excessive media use is associated with obesity, poor school performance, aggression and lack of sleep, #39; said Marjorie Hogan, co-author of the new policy and a pediatrician.上述新政策的作者之一、儿科医生霍根(Marjorie Hogan)说,过度使用电子媒介通常与肥胖、学业不佳、具有攻击性和睡眠不足有关。Families should have a no-device rule during meals and after bedtime, the guidelines say. Parents should also set family rules covering the use of the Internet and social media and cellphones and texting, including, perhaps, which sites can be visited, who can be called and giving parental access to Facebook accounts. The policy also reiterated the AAP#39;s existing recommendations: Kids should limit the amount of screen time for entertainment to less than two hours per day; children younger than 2 shouldn#39;t have any TV or Internet exposure. Also, televisions and Internet-accessible devices should be kept out of kids#39; bedrooms.上述建议说,家庭应该制定一个就餐时和就寝后不得使用电子媒介的规定。家长们还应该就互联网、社交媒体和手机的使用以及收发短信等事项定下家庭规定,比如包括可以访问哪些网站,可以给哪些人打电话,允许家长登陆孩子的Facebook账户。上述建议还重申了美国儿科学会现有的建议:孩子应该将使用电子设备进行的时间限制在每天两小时以内;两岁以下的儿童不应看电视或上网。此外,电视和可上网设备不应放在孩子的卧室里。Doctors say parents need to abide by the family rules, too, to model healthy behavior. That, some say, may be the toughest part. #39;If you go to any restaurant, Family 3.0 is Mom and Dad are on their devices and the kids are on theirs, #39; says Donald L. Shifrin, a pediatrician in Bellevue, Wash., and an AAP spokesman. #39;Who is talking to each other?#39;医生们说,家长也需要遵守这些家庭规定,以便为孩子树立良好的榜样。一些人说,身教可能是最困难的部分。华盛顿贝尔维的儿科医生、美国儿科学会发言人希夫林(Donald L. Shifrin)说,如果你去任何一家餐馆,都会发现家庭3.0版是爸妈和孩子在各自使用电子设备。有谁相互聊聊天吗?Children ages 8 to 18 spent an average of 7 hours and 38 minutes a day consuming media for fun, including TV, music, games and other content in 2009, according to a 2010 report from the Kaiser Family Foundation. The report was based on a survey of 2, 002 third- through 12th-graders, 702 of whom completed a seven-day media use diary. That was up about an hour and 17 minutes a day from five years earlier. About two-thirds of 8- to 18-year-olds said they had no rules on the amount of time they spent watching TV, playing games or using the computer, the Kaiser report found.据凯撒家庭基金会(Kaiser Family Foundation) 2010年发布的一份报告,2009年,八至18岁的儿童每天平均花在玩电子设备上的时间是七小时38分钟,其中包括看电视、听音乐、玩和其他内容。该报告是根据一项对2,002名三到12年级的学生所进行的调查得出的,其中有702人完成了一项为期七天的媒介使用日记。上述时长较五年前多了约一小时17分钟。凯撒家庭基金会的报告发现,八至18岁的受访者中约有三分之二的人说,他们每天看电视、玩和使用电脑的时间没有规定。Use of mobile devices by young kids has soared. A new report from Common Sense Media, a child-advocacy group based in San Francisco, found that 17% of children 8 and younger use mobile devices daily, up from 8% in 2011.小孩子使用移动设备的情况激增。旧金山儿童维权组织常识媒体(Common Sense Media)的一项新出炉的报告显示,八岁及以下的儿童中有17%每天使用移动设备,高于2011年的8%。 /201311/265173

  A suit in which Tencent Holdings Ltd, China#39;s largest Internet firm by market value, is suing Qihoo 360 Technology Co for damaging the brand and reputation of its Internet chatting tool QQ opened yesterday.昨日,中国市值最大的互联网公司腾讯控股有限公司起诉奇虎360科技有限公司破坏其开发的互联网聊天工具QQ的品牌和声誉。Tencent claimed that Qihoo#39;s action has hurt its business income and is demanding a 125 million-yuan (US.8 million) compensation, the Guangdong Province Higher People#39;s Court heard yesterday.昨天从广东省高级人民法院得知,腾讯称奇虎的行为已经损害了其业务收入,并将索赔1.25亿元人民币(1,980万美元)的损失。Beijing-based Qihoo, the free Internet anti-virus tool provider, is suspected of misleading users with its computer security software called Koukou Guard that claims Tencent#39;s QQ is scanning users#39; private data and information, an accusation that first emerged in 2010.北京的奇虎,免费互联网杀毒软件供应商,涉嫌误导用户安装他们的计算机安全软件“扣扣保镖”,冒充腾讯QQ扫描用户的私人数据和资料,这样的指控首次出现在2010年。Tencent claimed Koukou Guard disabled and uninstalled dozens of value-added services that are bundled with QQ, and this action hurt its income.腾讯称扣扣保镖破坏和卸载了与QQ一起捆绑的几十项增值务,这一做法损害了腾讯的收入。Qihoo lawyers argued in the court yesterday that users are entitled to get rid of value-added plug-ins and its Koukou Guard is actually helping users and ensuring healthy market competition.奇虎的律师昨天在法庭上辩解说用户都有权摆脱增值插件,扣扣保镖事实上是在帮助用户并确保健康的市场竞争。Tencent withdrew QQ, the nation#39;s most popular online chatting tool, from 300 million users of Qihoo#39;s anti-virus software, causing outrage among the users.腾讯撤消了300万用户装有奇虎杀毒软件的QQ(这一国内最流行的网络聊天工具),在用户中间引起了愤怒情绪。 /201209/200600
