Snapchat’s new Stories feature provides an evaporating recap of your day

Snapchat's new Stories feature provides an evaporating recap of your day

Already wildly popular amongst younger users, picture sharing app Snapchat is launching the next phase of its app today, and for the first time it’s bringing a feature to its iOS and Android apps at the same time. Snapchat’s claim to fame has always been that it shares images or short videos from one person to another, that disappear after viewing instead of living on in infamy (our early Tweets are a constant source of embarrassment). Now, the new Stories feature gives each user a feed similar to those on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter or Tumblr that all of their friends (instead of just one) can check out, but with a familiar hook — the Snaps disappear after 24 hours. Another interesting element is that, like Path, it also displays a list of who viewed each Snap.

In a blog post, the company touts the ephemeral nature of the feature, noting that “The end of your Story today is the beginning of your Story tomorrow.” To some, the service’s reputation is only for how it helps the Anthony Weiners of the world, but the introduction of Stories may change that — and introduce more competition for other social networks where users are wary of how long even casual posts could live to haunt them. The feature hasn’t popped up on either app store yet, for now you can check after the break for a few videos showing the stories users might tell — if they were in one of those bands the young folks are listening to.

Twitter’s curated Moments slows down the newsfeed for new users

Twitter's curated Moments slows down the newsfeed for new users

Twitter moves at the speed of human consciousness. With our attention span more and more resembling that of a gnat, that’s pretty quick. That’s partially the reason that the social network is finding it difficult for new users grasp. Breaking news on the service has a life cycle of about an hour or two before the collective moves on to another topic. Meanwhile Facebook will keep a topic in a person’s newsfeed for days with its algorithm. While Twitter’s not going to start controlling your feed (at least not yet) what it has done is add Moments, a new feature that makes keeping up with the trending topics and news items easier.

“We started by saying, ‘what would it take for folks who want Twitter to work for them to see great content immediately with no work?'” said Madhu Muthukumar, Twitter product manager. The internal answer ended up being Moments (a venture formerly known as Project Lightning), a feature that curates the day’s trending topics and news items into slideshows of image and video tweets with the occasional text posting. “It’s a way to explore content on the platform and not feel like you have to commit to following these people,” said Muthukumar.

Twitter's curated Moments slows down the newsfeed for new users

Beginning today a new tab with a lightning bolt will start rolling out to the latest iOS, Android clients and on Twitter.com in the United States. Tapping that bolt will drop you into today’s biggest news or topic. The lead topic is usually highlighted with a video or animated GIF. Taping on it drops you into a timeline of multimedia and text tweets about the topic from trusted sources. Swipe left to see additional posts with a while line at the bottom that can scrub back and forth within an story. When you’re down you can share the Moment, close it, or select another story.

Like Vine, you can double tap on a tweet within a moment to fav it. Or you can single tap to bring up the retweet and fav options. In addition to sharing individual posts, an entire Moment can be shared and embedded.

Users can also tap a follow button in a tweet based on a news event that drops relevant tweets from accounts you may or may not follow into their timeline. It’s like you’ve followed a curated list for a limited time. When the event ends, the accounts are unfollowed. It’s a good way to keep track of the information coming out of a sporting event or news item without delving into hashtags that can be hijacked or having to follow accounts that are only useful to you for a limited time.

At launch the feature is curated by a small team at Twitter and select partners including MLB, Buzzfeed, Getty Images and NASA. But, the company also plans on giving everyone the ability to build Moments. They can be shared on your feed or on your site or Facebook page. It’ll be Twitter’s version of tiny blog posts with users curating their own feeds with politics, cute animals and news. Mostly, it’ll be cute animals. But curating and sharing is easier than writing and that could appeal to folks that just want to show the a bunch of cool stuff with very little effort.

Twitter's curated Moments slows down the newsfeed for new users

New Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey made a point during a recent quarterly earnings call to talk about how confusing the service could be for new users. This included talk of questioning the reverse chronological order of stream. Moments doesn’t upend how Twitter works, but it does offer an alternative way to interact with service. A way that doesn’t intimidate new folks and gives long-time users the option to step back from the noise and see what’s happening in the world.

Twitter hasn’t created a less-than-stellar algorithm the way Facebook did. Instead its trying to create a Flipboard-like experience in its official apps. Moments is a set of training wheels that keeps new accounts from bailing once they realize that Twitter is the Tour de France of information. It’ll be up to those new folks if they want to graduate to the real race or if they’ll stick with leisurely pace of curated posts. Either way, if they stay, Twitter wins.

Watson’s melt-in-your-mouth Moroccan almond curry

Watson's melt-in-your-mouth Moroccan almond curry

Cognitive Cooking with Chef Watson‘ is a collaboration between IBM and the Institute of Culinary Education in New York City. As part of an ongoing series, we’ll be preparing one recipe from the book until we’ve made all of them. Wish us luck.

While it’s no great surprise to see Watson conjuring up unusual flavor blends, I was surprised to find such subdued in this Moroccan almond curry. On paper the recipe looked to be leaning toward bland, but its clever combination of all the elements worked. Traditional Moroccan lamb curries have intense flavors highlighted by garlic, onion, sometimes ginger, cinnamon and then sweetened with honey and dried apricot to balance lamb’s strong taste. Here, though, Watson prescribes small amounts of cardamom, cumin, turmeric. All told, the recipe is comprised of four separate parts, which you’ll later pile together. These include: the curry-braised lamb, a pea puree, green salad and plain old basmati rice. This is a great choice if you want to show off for guests, and yet it’s easy too: Because the meal is broken up in stages, much can be done the day before. It’s also mild enough that even the pickiest eater will find some joy in the dish. I fed it to a couple kids under ten and they both ate it up.

Watson's melt-in-your-mouth Moroccan almond curry

With the exception of the pea sprouts, which I had a devil of a time finding (they are so good on sandwiches, by the way) everything else can easily be found at your local grocery store. If you have a local butcher I’d suggest you visit them before browsing the frozen food aisles for the lamb shanks — fresh is always tastier. Lamb is one of the least consumed red meats in the US, perhaps because of the strong tang which some complain can at times verge on cloying. Here that “strong” taste is nicely balanced by the dead-simple but tasty green salad and even augmented by the sweet pea puree.

Oh, and for those from the UK, not to worry: these aren’t your granny’s mushy peas.

Preparation and cooking are a breeze; no special tricks or gear needed. The most important skill you’ll bring to this dish is patience. There are so many steps to follow: braising, blending, chopping, toasting and then the assembly. Sure, it’s a pretty lengthly process but you’ll be rewarded by the ‘oohs’ and ‘ahhs’ for spending the time and effort.

Watson's melt-in-your-mouth Moroccan almond curry

Cooking the lamb is undemanding. Just toast the spices until they start to smell, well, toasty (you’ll know when that is) and then put them aside. Heat some oil and brown the lamb on all sides to add Maillard reaction flavors to the dish (without that, you’d just have boiled lamb). Then it’s just a matter of sautéing the celery and tomatoes in the leftover lamb juices, deglazing the pan with orange juice, adding the zest and toasted spices.

I was surprised at this point to find that onion was absent from the ingredients list. I re-read the recipe to make sure I wasn’t mistaken, as this is a very strange omission in a curry. Still, it didn’t seem to hurt the flavor. To finish the lamb, dump the shanks in a big oven-safe dish with a tight-fitting lid add the deglazing juice and then top it up with water so the lamb is covered. Fire up a stove-top burner and bring the mix to a boil before putting it in the oven, then cover with foil and its lid in the oven at 275 degrees Fahrenheit for about five hours. It’s a good idea to leave the house during this time because the ridiculously delicious smells will drive you up the wall.

Lamb can be fatty, so once cooked you’ll need to chill it for a few hours so that the fat can set, making it easier to remove. Of course, feel free to skim it off with a spoon if you’re in a hurry, but chilled will definitely yield better results. While the lamb cools, that’s a great time to make the pea puree and chop the salad ingredients. Once we were set to eat, the lamb went in the oven to warm and I reduced the leftover sauce from the braising process while I started the rice. I reheated the lamb in a tajine because I had one kicking about but any covered oven safe dish is just fine.

Watson's melt-in-your-mouth Moroccan almond curry

To serve, I just brought everything to the table and had all the taste testers build their plates (actually, bowls). The curry was an all-around hit. The lamb in particular was as unctuous and fall-off-the-bone tender as I have ever had. But that wasn’t Watson — just great lamb. Where the AI’s magic was revealed was in the meat’s mild curry flavor and acidity. Though, the toasted almonds might have been too subtle. I wouldn’t have missed them if they’d been omitted.

The pea puree was a complete surprise considering it’s just peas and water, but may be my favorite part of the dish. Somehow their sweetness really boosted the cohesion of the whole meal. Consider that dish on its own: those same peas blended with water would likely have been just cold blended peas. So here is a shining example of where Watson delivered a combination of flavor and texture that when part of a larger whole transforms from something mundane to magical. Lastly the salad, while simple, provided crunch with the lettuce, celery leaves and pea shoots in direct contrast with the soft lamb, puree and of the rice along for the ride to catch the extra sauce.

I’ll make this again for sure, though I might consider augmenting the sweetness provided by the tomatoes with some kind of fruit or honey and perhaps throwing whole blanched almonds in during the long cook. If you’ve been waiting for a more “user friendly” Watson dish to serve up to friends, then this is one you should seriously consider.

Research spat turns a GM lamb with jellyfish DNA into lunch

Research spat turns a GM lamb with jellyfish DNA into lunch

There’s a scandale playing out at a genetic research facility that caused a valuable lab sheep to end up as someone’s gigot d’agneau dinner. France’s National Institute for Agricultural Research (INRA) has been breeding sheep that are genetically modified with a florescent jellyfish gene to aid heart researchers. Unfortunately, a lamb called “Ruby” ended up at the slaughterhouse and on someone’s assiette, possibly with a different, more minty jelly. Worse yet, it appears that the incident happened not by accident, but because of some kind of professional feud that escalated way out of control.

According to Le Parisien, animosity had built up over several months between an INRA employee and his boss. At some point, the empoyee called a slaughterhouse to pick up Ruby, saying that it was a regular non-modified sheep. He then allegedly told INRA officials that his boss tried to hush up the incident in an attempt to get him fired. Once INRA officials discovered the details, it issued an alert, saying “as a world-renowned institute, we can’t tolerate such behavior… (which) calls for a severe response.” It asked French police to investigate the incident, which could result in prison term for the perpetrators.

We’d be very curious to see the Yelp review.

If accusation is true, it’s hard to believe someone would allow such a valuable animal to be destroyed over a petty dispute. The sheep were modified to help researchers study therapies for heart attack victims, including transplant recipients. In any event, the sheep posed no risk for consumption, though we’d be very curious to see the Yelp review on the final dish.

Modified rice plant produces more grain, less methane

Modified rice plant produces more grain, less methane

Apparently, the secret to better, more eco-friendly rice plant is another type of grain: barley. A team of scientists has created genetically modified rice that borrows a single gene from barley and found that the altered organism can generate up to 43 percent more grains per plant. Plus, its methane emission is down to 0.3 percent, a lot lower than regular rice’s 10 percent emission observed during the scientists’ experiments. Methane, as you might know, is one of the most potent greenhouse gases and is the second most prevalent in the US after carbon dioxide.

It’s not 100 percent clear why the modified organism produces less greenhouse gas, but the scientists believe it could be because it stores more starch and sugar in its stems and grains than its roots. Regular rice has more starch and sugar in its roots, which tend to leak out and serve as food to microbes that turn them into methane. While this barley-rice organism sounds promising, the scientists still need to turn it into a variety farmers can easily cultivate, and that could take five to ten more years.

You might not have to update next-gen antivirus software

You might not have to update next-gen antivirus software

Antivirus and malware protection programs are great, but they have a fatal flaw: they can only protect your PC from threats they know about. It’s not a terrible problem, but it gives attackers a brief window of opportunity to harm your computer every time they tweak their code. If a PC hasn’t nabbed the latest update to its protection suite, it’s vulnerable — but it doesn’t have to be that way. Researchers are using deep learning algorithms that can spot new malicious code naturally, without database updates.

If an artificial neural network can be trained to recognize a face, why can’t it be trained to recognize potentially malicious code? Well, according to Israeli startup Deep Instinct, it can. The company is building a deep-learning antivirus suite that can (reportedly) spot new malware with 20% higher accuracy than today’s best protection software. The claims are unverified, but the company’s approach isn’t without support: researchers at both Microsoft and Invincea have published papers demonstrating the potential of deep learning malware detection systems. One experiment found 95% of new malware without updates. That’s encouraging.

Like most deep learning initiatives, self-learning malware detection software is still in the early stages — but if successful, it could be a game changer. Check out TechnologyReview at the source link below for the full story.

DevilRobber now “improved”, still nasty malware threat

DevilRobber now "improved", still nasty malware threat

We previously told you about DevilRobber and what sort of unsavory things it can do to (and with) your Mac. (In case you don’t click over to read the article, here’s the scoop: it’s bad. Real bad.) Back in the day (November 1st), it was a Trojan horse and sent a little of your personal info off to some far flung servers.

But CNet is reporting the new version has mutated, and now it tries to grab your Terminal history and system logs. This new “improved” version can be picked up by downloading Pixelmator from someplace that is not the Mac App Store (currently the only place to legitimately get a copy). But the fun doesn’t end there! It also tries (but does not succeed at) making off with information stored in your 1Password data file. CNet’s story makes it sound like DevilRobber can actually do something with that file, but in reality that data is safe, as confirmed by Agile themselves. They have a nice writeup on their site about all of this and the steps you can take to make extra super sure your data is safe.

This is also another of those opportunities we here at TUAW occasionally take to remind you that malware is bad but real, and you DO need to protect yourself. Remember “Macs don’t get viruses” is just as accurate as “Macs don’t have any good games” (which is to say not accurate at all), and protection is ridiculously easy. Get yourself a nice antivirus utility and spend a little time with Little Snitch to make sure nothing suspicious is being sent from your machine, and that should help you avoid a lot of problems.

The After Math: You've got to see this

What a week it’s been for entertainment news on the internet! Netflix’s first theatrical release, Beasts of No Nation, is racking up views; the NFL’s first live-streamed game, which debuted on Yahoo!, was reasonably well-received; and we learned something new about our friend, the chameleon. And now for some numbers.

Netflix’s ‘Beasts of no Nation’ already has 3 million views

Netflix's 'Beasts of no Nation' already has 3 million views

With Netflix’s first theater-ready film, Beasts of No Nation, content chief Ted Sarandos broke a long-standing company rule not to reveal viewing numbers. “It is worth sharing that this movie, in North America alone, has over 3 million views already,” he told Deadline. Netflix racked up those figures in two weekends, and the Cary Fukunaga directed film, starring Idris Elba, was the top Netflix movie in its first week of release. The service helped it along with a strong launch, though. “We focused on making the film available to all 69 million Netflix subscribers around the world, in more than 50 countries,” Sarandos said.

Beasts of No Nation has been marketed as a prestige film, so Netflix always intended a theatrical release to allow it to qualify for the Oscars. However, it was boycotted by four US cinema chains, angry the film was available online the same day it hit theaters. It did see a limited art house release in the US and UK, though, and received critical raves, scoring 90 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. Sarandos added that it was Netflix’s number one film in countries “where these (types of) films typically never even open,” including Japan, Brazil and Mexico.
