Five Steps To Build Your Own Random Non-Sequitur Twitter Bot

If you follow my standard Twitter account, @LaurenInSpace, you’re missing out on the good stuff. @LaurenInEbooks is a computer-generated stream of garbled tweets that are often far more on point than what I actually have to say.  China is a wearable. Ramona the Love Terrier reports: — Otaku Journalist ebx (@LaurenInEbooks) May 23, 2014 A […]

Give Your iPhone Camera DSLR-Like Superpowers

Guest author Chris McConnell is an opinionated, entrepreneurial-minded designer and writer who founded DailyTekk and Climbur. I’ve got a problem. I love the camera on my iPhone. It’s become an appendage—like an arm, or hand. If it was amputated from my life I’d feel like I’d truly lost a part of me. I use it all the time. […]

Treadmill Desk Set-Up

Walking while working on a computer became a necessary and life-changing experience for me in 2010 after a nasty sciatic injury prevented me from sitting in a chair. I got lucky with the purchase of the electric adjustable desk frame from GeekDesk. (Reviewed here.) It cost $549 plus shipping. I saved a fair bit of […]

We Need An Uber For Healthcare

ReadWriteBody is an ongoing series where ReadWrite covers networked fitness and the quantified self. Yes, it’s tiresome how every new startup describes itself as an “X, but for Y.” When an early employee of Uber started working on a doctors-on-demand service, everyone inevitably called it an “Uber for healthcare,” ridiculing it as a luxury for the […]

How Facebook Will Fuel The Next Wave Of Open Source Businesses

It’s no longer in doubt: Facebook is the world’s largest open source company. Facebook could already have been considered to be in the open source lead through the release of its datacenter designs, databases and more.

Firefly Hands-On: 7 Ways Amazon’s Fire Phone Captures The Real World

Firefly is one of the core features of the Amazon Fire phone, if you could call it that. On the Fire phone, it launches like an app, but in practice Firefly works more like Siri’s voice recognition tools or Google Now’s anticipatory data system—two other “apps” woven deeply into their respective mobile operating systems. All […]

Google Launches Starter Kit For A More Consistent Web

Today Google launched Web Starter Kit, a download that consists of all the templates and tooling developers need to create sites that function on any device and any display.   Today’s Internet users don’t have just one device.

The Supreme Court Kills Abstract Software Patents: Who Wins And Who Loses

According to the U.S. Supreme Court, you cannot legally patent laws of nature, natural phenomena or abstract ideas. Especially if those abstract ideas are a generic implementation of doing something “on a computer.” In a unanimous decision today, the Supreme Court invalidated a class of software patents that cover what it considers “abstract concepts.” The […]

$8 Ikea Tool Set

I recently moved and somehow lost my tool box. I knew I would have to wrestle with endless amounts of disassembly, reassembly, and re-reassembly and so I bought an Ikea Fixa tool kit for $8. My kids love using them because they can swap out screw driver heads, the tools fit their hands (I think they […]

Splunk Founder Now Launches Entrepreneurs, Not Startups

Most people never get to launch a successful startup, much less six. Michael Baum (@michaelbaum), whom I first met at LinuxWorld at in 2004, has a charismatic personality and an extraordinary track record, largely unheralded. Despite earning Oprah money and minting more than 150 millionaires with six successful exits, including Splunk, currently valued at more […]

Foursquare’s Dennis Crowley On The Future Of Location: Full Video

At our ReadWriteMix event in San Francisco in early June, Foursquare CEO Dennis Crowley and I talked about the new app economy.

Amazon Launches The Fire Phone, Glutted With Clever Bells And Whistles

Today near its Seattle headquarters, Amazon released its long-rumored Amazon Fire smartphone. Like Amazon’s Fire tablets, the Fire phone runs a modified version of Android and ties deeply into Amazon’s services—but that’s where the similarities end. The Fire Phone—notably not called the Fire “smartphone” in spite of its braininess—will go on pre-sale today. The 4.7-inch […]
