Facebook Makes It Easier To Delete Unwanted Apps by @mattsouthern

Facebook has recently updated its app settings page to make it easier for users to get rid of apps they longer want or have any use for. A new tweak to Facebook’s setting screen, which was noticed by the blog Inside Facebook, can easily show you which third-party apps have access to your Facebook friends list and other sensitive information. One of the more negative or positive aspects of Facebook, depending on how you look at it, is how easily it can connect you with third-party apps and games. Facebook may also connect with third-party apps for the purpose of […]

Letting Robots Make Decisions Also Makes Human Workers Happier

Despite everything we’ve learned from science fiction, giving robotic workers more control may be the key to human happiness in the workplace, an MIT study suggests.

MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab (CSAIL) conducted a study in which three workers—two humans and a PR-2 humanoid robot (pictured above)—completing an engineering task together. There were three conditions to the study: manual, or totally human organized; autonomous, or totally managed by the robot; and semi-autonomous, in which the robot assigned tasks to one person, and the other person assigned tasks to himself.

When humans were given complete control, they ended up doing more tedious tasks than otherwise. These moral-reducing tasks were lessened with semi-autonomous control, but the team started to make true progress when the robot was fully autonomous. 

Not only did CSAIL find that humans and robots were able to complete the task most efficiently with an autonomous robot, but that human workers preferred it that way, too. 

While it’s a concern that humans would feel less valuable with less control, it’s also true that the PR-2 is naturally slower and clunkier than a person (hence the sped-up images of the tests), and is hardly an asset when not using its full potential for autonomous task completion. 

“In our research we were seeking to find that sweet spot for ensuring that the human workforce is both satisfied and productive,” says project lead Matthew Gombolay, a PhD. student at CSAIL. “We discovered that the answer is to actually give machines more autonomy, if it helps people to work together more fluently with robot teammates.”

No, we’re probably not going to go willingly to our robot overlords. But the research shows that a robot that can’t do anything on its own without an OK from a human is hardly a teammate at all.

Proof That Instagram’s Hyperlapse App Makes Everyone’s Videos Better

<em>Editor’s note: This post was originally published by our partners at <a href=”http://www.popsugar.com/tech/Creative-Hyperlapse-Videos-35580606″>PopSugar Tech</a>.</em>

Instagram has been an outlet for photographic and video storytelling since it was first introduced, and though we’ve seen new photo apps to make your Instas shine come and go over the past few years, none have been quite as hyped up as the latest and maybe greatest—Hyperlapse.

The user-friedly app from Instagram itself has simplified the process of producing sleek, smooth, and creative high-quality time-lapse videos. Check it out in action below.

All the little ants are marching.

Jimmy Fallon tried the app out on The Tonight Show.

You literally can’t lose with a cute dog video.

This is kind of like The Office meets The Maze Runner.

The app works wonders with shots of water.

Belatedly, TiVo Makes Its Play For Cord-Cutters

TiVo shot to fame, if not widespread acceptance, on the ability of its digital video recorders to impose order on the unruly smorgasbord of cable-TV programming. Which makes its latest product—its first set-top box that won’t work with cable—a bit of a head-scratcher, at least at first glance.

The new “limited edition” device, the TiVo Roamio OTA (for “over the air”) DVR, is the company’s attempt to appeal to cord-cutters, a growing group of TV viewers who eschew pricey cable packages for cheap or free streaming and broadcast options. It’s a striking move, and certainly an indication that TiVo understands that the TV landscape it grew up in is shifting—even if it doesn’t plan to sacrifice its valuable partnerships with cable and satellite providers just yet.

TiVo’s clear hope is that the Roamio OTA will make it more relevant amid a growing array of smart TVs and streaming boxes like Roku. Its pitch: You may not need us to search out and record your shows on cable, but we can do something similar for terrestrial HDTV broadcasts, while giving you the major streaming services in one place. 

For a price, of course.

Thinking Inside The Box

Roamio OTA is basically a stripped-down version of the company’s full-fledged premium Roamio boxes, except that you can’t hook it up to cable or satellite service. Instead, it’s limited to recording programs you can receive via an over-the-air antenna (thus the OTA) and to searching out things you’d like to watch on streaming services like Netflix.

The box will sell for $49—about par for your average streaming box. But it still requires TiVo’s standard $15 monthly fee (and that’s with a year-long commitment). It’s considerably cheaper than the company’s previous entry-level TiVo Roamio, which starts at $199. For that money, you get four tuners, 500GB of storage space, Wi-Fi, access via mobile devices, online streaming services and that popular TiVo remote and menu interface. 

The company’s primary pitch is to give cord-cutters a single place to search over-the-air TV shows and Internet videos from services like Netflix, Hulu, Amazon and YouTube, while also offering tightly controlled mobile access to recorded shows. Like its brethren, the Roamio OTA will let you shuttle recorded programs among other TiVo boxes in your household or to iPhones and iPads using the TiVo app.

That sounds like a great idea. Unfortunately, there’s a downside: that pesky subscription cost. People can already stream using other, cheaper device such as the Roku or the Chromecast, neither of which have recurring fees. Folks who bypass cable TV because of price may not take kindly to shelling out $15 every month to record shows that, in large part, are available from places like Hulu for $8 per month—or for free.

Testing—1, 2, 3

Instead of launching broadly, the latest TiVo is rolling out in test mode in select Best Buy locations on September 14. According to the company, there are some very reasonable and pragmatic reasons for that. With no cable card, the new box will rely on signals culled from antennas, which can be a tricky affair.

A TiVo representative told me via email that:

… the intricacies around antenna usage (everything from the density of trees on someone’s street to general topography) and the variety of signal strength in specific markets does present unique challenges—which is why we’re testing the product to get a better sense of how the customer will navigate signal issues, pair the product with the best antenna for their location, etc. If all goes smoothly, we’re open and ready to expanding on this test.

Of course, it’s hard to overlook the possibility that the company may also be testing its pricing, to see how much people are willing to spend. My guess is that this subscription cost is high, even for an established elder statesman of TV technology.

Over the past 16 years, the company has developed an ardent fanbase. But staying relevant amid the swelling ranks of set-top boxes, dongles and smart TVs may be a tough proposition. And charging high subscription fees may not be the best way to make inroads with today’s newfangled TV audiences.

Google Makes It Easier Than Ever To Unsubscribe From Unwanted Emails by @mattsouthern

Today, Google announced a new feature for Gmail that will make it easier than ever to unsubscribe from unwanted emails. Now, instead of scrolling to the bottom to find an unsubscribe button, Gmail will surface the unsubscribe button right next to the sender’s email address. Email is a handy way to get updates from your favorite brands, social networks, discussion boards and more. But sometimes you end up subscribed to lists that are no longer relevant to you, and combing through an entire message looking for a way to unsubscribe is no fun.  This feature won’t work for all email […]
