capturing the ridiculous and playful facial expressions of dogs as they furiously attempt to shake water off themselves, the pet portraits by carli davidson are highly entertaining, playful glimpses into typically unseen movement. the different breeds can be seen with their droopy jowls flapping, fur launching in all directions, and eyes humorously bulging out of their sockets, all while drool and water propels around the photo frame. the simple act of the dogs struggle to dry themselves is transformed into a hilarious series of portraits that distorts and warps their faces into monstrous adaptations. davidson has recently released a 130-page book titled ‘SHAKE‘, which documents the photos, and a video by the production company variable is the live realization of the dogs’ tossing and thrusting.

Why do we go to sleep? To clean our brains, say US scientists

Why do we go to sleep? To clean our brains, say US scientists

By Ian Sample, Science correspondent

Scientists in the US claim to have a new explanation for why we sleep: in the hours spent slumbering, a rubbish disposal service swings into action that cleans up waste in the brain.

Through a series of experiments on mice, the researchers showed that during sleep, cerebral spinal fluid is pumped around the brain, and flushes out waste products like a biological dishwasher.

The process helps to remove the molecular detritus that brain cells churn out as part of their natural activity, along with toxic proteins that can lead to dementia when they build up in the brain, the researchers say.

Maiken Nedergaard, who led the study at the University of Rochester, said the discovery might explain why sleep is crucial for all living organisms. "I think we have discovered why we sleep," Nedergaard said. "We sleep to clean our brains."

Writing in the journal Science, Nedergaard describes how brain cells in mice shrank when they slept, making the space between them on average 60% greater. This made the cerebral spinal fluid in the animals' brains flow ten times faster than when the mice were awake.

The scientists then checked how well mice cleared toxins from their brains by injecting traces of proteins that are implicated in Alzheimer's disease. These amyloid beta proteins were removed faster from the brains of sleeping mice, they found.

Nedergaard believes the clean-up process is more active during sleep because it takes too much energy to pump fluid around the brain when awake. "You can think of it like having a house party. You can either entertain the guests or clean up the house, but you can't really do both at the same time," she said in a statement.

According to the scientist, the cerebral spinal fluid flushes the brain's waste products into what she calls the "glymphatic system" which carries it down through the body and ultimately to the liver where it is broken down.

Other researchers were sceptical of the study, and said it was too early to know if the process goes to work in humans, and how to gauge the importance of the mechanism. "It's very attractive, but I don't think it's the main function of sleep," said Raphaelle Winsky-Sommerer, a specialist on sleep and circadian rhythms at Surrey University. "Sleep is related to everything: your metabolism, your physiology, your digestion, everything." She said she would like to see other experiments that show a build up of waste in the brains of sleep-deprived people, and a reduction of that waste when they catch up on sleep.

Vladyslav Vyazovskiy, another sleep expert at Surrey University, was also sceptical. "I'm not fully convinced. Some of the effects are so striking they are hard to believe. I would like to see this work replicated independently before it can be taken seriously," he said.

Jim Horne, professor emeritus and director of the sleep research centre at Loughborough University, cautioned that what happened in the fairly simple mouse brain might be very different to what happened in the more complex human brain. "Sleep in humans has evolved far more sophisticated functions for our cortex than that for the mouse, even though the present findings may well be true for us," he said.

But Nedergaard believes she will find the same waste disposal system at work in humans. The work, she claims, could pave the way for medicines that slow the onset of dementias caused by the build-up of waste in the brain, and even help those who go without enough sleep. "It may be that we can reduce the need at least, because it's so annoying to waste so much time sleeping," she said.

So, how about the dog training shock collar? Maybe you like the best bluetooth headsets!

The future of video games will be in your browser

The future of video games will be in your browser

By Alex Cocilova

I’ve had it with interminable game downloads—and you can keep your fancy new Xbox, PlayStation, and Wii consoles. The future of PC gaming is in the browser, and it’ll be here sooner than you expect.

I’m not talking about silly Flash games or Facebook time-wasters. We’ll soon be playing AAA games that don’t require pricey investments in new hardware. Even better, most of them will be absolutely free to play.

Challenging the status quo

I recently sat down with Artillery Games’ CEO and cofounder Ankur Pansari and Starcraft II community superstar Sean “Day[9]” Plott, who recently joined the company as head of games. Pansari and his team are developing a real-time strategy game, code-named Project Atlas, that they promise will rival Starcraft in depth and quality. The game will run entirely in a modern browser using HTML5 and JavaScript, and it won’t require any plug-ins or downloads.

The demo I played loaded fast on a freshly booted, uncached Macbook Pro, and all I had to do was provide a link. The Chrome browser fired up, and within 30 seconds I was matched with another player dialed in from the company’s headquarters.

The game is still in a very early stage of development. I saw little more than a group of units running around on an impressive-looking 3D battlefield, beating each other up until they were all dead. But if I hadn’t known, I would never have guessed that all the action was unfolding inside a Web browser. The game launched in high resolution, all the hotkeys worked, moving the mouse to the edges scrolled the map, and everything was responsive.

Unlike conventional games, which can gestate for years, Artillery started work on Project Atlas in September, and the company hopes to start small, closed beta testing by the end of the year. Plott told me he learned the new development platform in a matter of weeks and can already produce new content in a fraction of the time it would take using traditional development tools.

“Our browser-based platform will be transformative for the industry by not only making core games easier to develop, play and enjoy, but by providing everyone with browser access to AAA-quality games typically only playable using a console or PC download,” said Pansari.

Built-in dev tools enable developers to tweak a game at any time, relying on nothing more than the browser.

“The most important core principle we built all this around was rapid iteration,” Pansari continued. “We’re making sure we can iterate on a game design quicker than any other company on Earth.” Developers can change any of the game’s properties or visuals on the fly, and receive instant feedback simply by refreshing the page. Compiling code becomes a thing of the past. Developers no longer need to buy expensive software tools or license pricey middleware, either—which means that browser-based game development significantly lowers the financial barrier to entry. Building a great game, of course, still requires plenty of good ideas, know-how, and time. But none of those things require lots of capital.

Browser games are here today

Playing games in a browser isn’t an entirely new concept. Simple Flash games have been around since the early days of Web surfing. You’ve probably already played recreations of such arcade classics as Pong, Pac-Man, and Tron. Facebook soon entered the time-waster fray, hosting highly addictive games like Farmville and Words With Friends.

If raising crops and leveraging your vocabulary don’t float your boat, you’ll find many more-ambitious games online, including Card Hunter, Battlestar Galactica Online, and RuneScape. Each of these titles has made waves with quality gameplay and stunning graphics. And all of them are completely free to play. Fire up Google’s Chrome browser, open a free Google Play app store account, and you’ll find a huge library of free and paid games that run in the browser. Google’s new App Launcher lets you start games from the desktop: You might think of it as a lightweight, browser-based Steam.

Google Experiments

In this Chrome Experiment, authored by Patapom, you can walk around and look at the interior of this rendered cathedral.

Google encourages pushing new technological boundaries through its Chrome Experiments initiative. Independent developers have produced a number of impressive projects using WebGL (an acronym for Web Graphics Library), a JavaScript API (application programming interface) that can generate 2D and 3D renderings in any modern browser without any downloads or plugins.

Beyond the PC

Browser gaming isn’t limited to PCs. Each new generation of smartphones, tablets, and even smart TVs gains computational power. Many of them can already play console-quality games, and the industry is only just getting started.

Circling back to my conversation with the developers at Artillery: “Imagine a world, I think even in five years, “said Pansari, “when all of these televisions you buy have really fast browsers built into them. I think that world is coming pretty quickly. In that sort of world we ask ourselves ‘Why would you buy a gaming console when you can just load up a URL and pair your Xbox controller with your television?’ That’s what we’re really excited about.”

I love my PC as much as the next geek, but I’m looking forward to the day when I won’t have to buy a new video card and chain myself to my desk just to play an exciting new game. And I can’t wait to have everything I need to play games from my couch built right into my Internet-connected TV. Fortunately, from what I’ve seen, I won’t have long to wait.

Security to go: Three tips to keep your mobile data safe

Security to go: Three tips to keep your mobile data safe

Ian Paul ian@ianpaul

Keeping your mobile gear secure while you’re zipping across the grid is tricky business. Laptops and tablets—veritable gold mines of personal information—are popular targets for thieves. Law enforcement officials, meanwhile, could confiscate your smartphone and then examine the data—merely as a result of a routine traffic stop.

If you’re packing an Android device, it gets even trickier, because with such a device, you stand a better chance of falling prey to the booming mobile malware market. Independent malware testing lab AV-Test had less than 10,000 Android malware samples in its database by late 2011. Now, two years later, that number has blossomed to around 1.3 million.

Data security is never easy, and security with mobile devices—smartphones, tablets, and, of course, laptops—is no exception. But you can take a few steps to meaningfully improve your mobile security. Join me as we walk through three of the best strategies. (Note: Click on the smaller images below, to enlarge them.)

Encrypt everything

One of the easiest things you can do to protect an Android or iOS device is to take advantage of built-in hardware encryption. This feature will turn the data on your phone into nearly unreadable junk—unless it's properly unlocked with your password.

Let's start with the easy one: iOS. Owners of iPhones or iPads can rest easy knowing the data is already encrypted, provided you create a passcode from the lock screen.

Here's how to password-protect your iPhone:

In Settings, tap on General > Passcode Lock.

You'll need to choose whether to use a four-digit numeric PIN or something more complex. Longer is always better. A four-digit PIN means some 10,000 possible passcodes—enough to deter amateur thieves (unless they get lucky), but not sophisticated attackers.

To set a harder password, slide the “Simple Passcode” setting to “off.” Keep in mind that you’ll have to enter any longer passcode every time you want to open your phone, so don’t overdo it. A six-character passcode will suffice for most people.

Once you’ve crafted your passcode, tap “Turn Passcode On” and enter your password. You'll be asked to enter it twice to confirm it.

Before you show off your super-secure phone, however, consider activating the

Erase Data setting at the bottom of the Passcode Lock settings screen. Once enabled, your device will erase all data after ten failed passcode attempts—a good safeguard in case your phone ends up in the wrong hands.

Android users face a slightly more complex, more traditional encryption procedure. The process is really pretty easy, but the one thing you need is time. Android devices have to go through a lengthy disk-encryption process, just as your PC or external hard drive does. Depending on the size of your device, encryption could take up to an hour or more. During the process, you need to have the device plugged in at all times, and the battery must be charged. Otherwise, the encryption process could fail, and you could lose some or all of your data.

Two more things to keep in mind: First, some users report that encryption on Android caused a performance hit on their devices during everyday use. Second, encryption is irreversible—short of a factory reset.

All that said, if you want to encrypt an Android phone, here’s how I did it on a device running the latest version of Android (4.3 Jelly Bean).

Android encryption

The screen at left shows paragraphs explaining exactly what Android app encryption involves. Once you’re okay with that, tap Encrypt phone.

If you don’t have a PIN or passcode set for your phone, you’ll see a warning to set a passcode first. To set a passcode or PIN, go back to Settings > Security and tap Screen lock at the top of the page. From there, choose the option for either a PIN or a password. Android allows PINs to be greater than four digits.

After you’ve set up your PIN or password, go back to the encryption page and tap Encrypt phone again.

You’ll be asked to enter your PIN, and then you’ll be given one last chance to back out. If you’re ready to commit, tap Encrypt phone one last time.

Now, all you can do is sit back and wait for your phone to encrypt itself. During the process, your phone could reboot several times. Don’t touch it until you see the lock screen return.

Keep malware at bay

Android users are particularly vulnerable to malware. Google, unlike Apple, doesn’t vet applications before they go live on Google Play. This has proven an easy way for malware creators to sneak malicious apps onto Google’s app store. Malware-laden apps range from those offering free device wallpaper to games, and even to impostors that try to look like popular apps.

That’s why security vendors such as Avast, Kaspersky, and Lookout offer antivirus and security apps for Android to help keep you secure online. But how good are these apps, really? Back in late 2011, results from the AV-Test lab found that the free solutions were nearly useless. The firm tested seven of the top free apps at the time and said that the best free solution detected only one-third of any malware present on a device. Even paid solutions weren’t doing that great at the time of the 2011 tests, with the top paid apps detecting only around 50 percent of malicious code.

Lookout's Android security app consistently gets high marks from industry analysts, though it's not the best you can get.

“When our report was published in 2011 the AV industry and the threat landscape was in a very early stage on Android,” says Hendrik Pilz, director of AV-Test’s technical lab. “Only a few malware existed but there were already several apps pretending to be an essential utility on each Android device.” (Full disclosure: PCWorld regularly teams up with AV-Test to examine security software for PCs and mobile devices).

Nearly two years later, however, the usefulness of many free solutions has improved dramatically. During its most recent look at Android security apps in July, well-known security apps for Android, including those from Avast, F-Secure, Kaspersky, Lookout, and TrustGo all earned high marks from AV-Test. The lowest score in that group went to Lookout, which still earned an impressive 98.6 percent detection rating.

Besides antivirus and malware scanning, security apps for Android also offer a full

McAfee LiveSafe 2014 Android screenshot

security suite with features such as device location, remote wipe, backup, and suspicious-URL blocking. These extra features usually require a premium subscription, but most apps offer a minimal, basic level of protection for free, including malware scanning.

Even if you do pay for the full security experience, there’s only so much an app can do. It can’t stop a thief from nabbing your device, for example, or prevent a thief from raiding your phone’s data if you didn’t use a screen lock. However, a security app’s backup features can save your data if that data is not automatically backed up to Google. And remote lock and wipe features can prevent a thief from getting in even after your device is stolen.

Google also offers remote wipe and lock for free for Android users running a device with Android 2.3 and up, via the Web-based device manager.

Security apps for Android may have come a long way in the past couple of years, but they still have room to improve. In March, researchers at Northwestern University and the University of North Carolina showed that they were able to build a piece of malware that Android security apps couldn’t detect, Network World reported.

Crossing borders

You might think that the minute you land at JFK from a trip overseas that your rights are immediately protected under the U.S. Constitution, but you’d be wrong. Special rules apply at border crossings into the United States, as well as other countries, that give border agents leeway to interrogate you and search your belongings. That includes confiscating any mobile devices and laptops you might have with you or copying their contents.

While these laws are primarily meant to deter terrorism, they've also been used to pull aside activists like Jacob Appelbaum, a computer security researcher and member of the TOR project, and journalists like NPR’s Sarah Abdurrahman. Wind up on the wrong list, and you could be, too.

You can’t do much to prevent yourself from being interrogated, but you can protect your data from being nabbed by an agent and downloaded into some massive data silo in the Utah desert. The Electronic Frontier Foundation suggests an interesting option: Leave the hard drive at home and boot your laptop from an SD card.

(We've also published full instructions on how to create a Ubuntu boot disk or USB boot drive in our Ubuntu guide for displaced Windows users.)

Using Ubuntu on your laptop while traveling may seem extreme, but it helps to ensure that your private data won't be confiscated while crossing borders.

By turning your SD card into a secret Ubuntu boot card, you can leave the country with a “clean” installation of Ubuntu, with no user data on it at all, and your boot drive looks like an innocuous DSLR memory card. Use Ubuntu overseas, connect to your secure cloud accounts for important documents, and simply wipe the SD card of any files before you head home.

Even if you don’t have any sensitive data to protect, this is such a great, secret-agent-style use for your laptop that you might want to try it simply for the cool factor. But you do have to ensure that your laptop’s BIOS cooperates.

The easiest way to install an OS onto an SD card is to create a Live CD of Ubuntu Linux, or some variant, such as Mint. Ubuntu is the best choice, because this Linux distribution gives you step-by-step instructions on how to create a live CD. From there, installing Linux is no different from installing Windows: Just pick the drive on which to install Ubuntu (that 32GB or 64GB SD card), then follow the on-screen instructions.

Make sure your laptop’s BIOS can boot from the SD card reader. We already have a tutorial on how to enter your BIOS settings, so in the BIOS utility, look for a category that says "boot order," "boot priority," or something similar. Then make sure your card reader is first in line.

Enter your BIOS and set your flash drive or SD card reader to be your primary boot device. If you stick with the EFF's SD card recommendation, make sure your SD card reader is capable of serving as a boot device.

Note that even if your BIOS lets you put the SD reader in your boot order, your peripheral may not be capable of booting the PC. Check with your device manufacturer to confirm this capability.

Even if you can’t boot from the SD card reader, you can still install Ubuntu onto an SD card and just use an inexpensive SD card-to-USB adapter, many of which look just like USB drives with a slot for the SD card.

Once you’re up and running, do a few test runs at home with your hard drive removed. The last thing you want to deal with after a red-eye flight to London is a snazzy, secret-agent setup that doesn’t work. But if the test runs go without a hitch, you should be all set.

Intel NUC Kit D54250WYK review

Intel NUC Kit D54250WYK review: This tiny PC punches high above its weight class

Component manufacturers typically don’t build retail products—they don’t want to compete with their customers. But when it comes to constructing itty-bitty desktop PCs, Intel apparently still sees the need to show the way forward.

The next Next Unit of Computing, the NUC Kit D54250WYK, represents a major leap forward from Intel’s first effort. Whereas the first-gen kit featured a third-generation Core i3 processor and formed the foundation for a stupendous home theater PC, with this new kit Intel stuffed a beefier fourth-gen Core i5 chip into an even smaller enclosure. Add the right components, and you have a capable contender for both play and work.

Peering inside the box

If you’re wondering why Intel markets the NUC as a kit, that’s because it isn’t a complete computer. You need to supply a number of additional components—and an operating system—before you can fire this machine up and start using it. We reviewed it with Windows 8, but this thing is just begging to have a copy of XBMC installed on it.

Such a product is what’s commonly referred to as a “bare-bones” system. In this case, your $360 buys a 4-by-4-inch motherboard with a Core i5-4250U processor (soldered to the board and therefore not upgradable), an enclosure (with an integrated Wi-Fi antenna), a heat sink and fan, and an external power brick (an item Intel didn’t ship with the first NUC because the company didn’t want to stock a bunch of versions based on the requirements of various markets).

The Core i5-4250U is a dual-core processor with one of Intel’s better—but not best—integrated graphics technologies: the Intel HD Graphics 5000. Intel also includes a VESA mounting bracket, so you can attach the NUC to the back of your display should you want to create a custom all-in-one PC. The motherboard has a pair of SO-DIMM slots and can address up to 16GB of DDR3L/1333 or DDR3L/1600 memory (the L is for low-power, or 1.35-volt, RAM). It has one full-length PCIe mini slot (which you’ll probably use to plug in an internal Wi-Fi adapter) and one half-length PCIe mini slot (which you’ll most likely use to connect an mSATA solid-state drive).

The motherboard is also well appointed, with two USB 3.0 ports in front, two more in the back, and one each of SATA data and power connectors. Although you’ll find no room inside the enclosure for additional storage, you could operate a drive outside the case or look for a third-party alternative, such as SilverStone or Chenbro. The new NUC also has both Mini HDMI and Mini DisplayPort video outputs, along with a 1/8-inch audio-headset jack. If you’re interested in building out a miniature home-theater PC, the NUC has an infrared sensor in the front panel.

Intel aided our review by shipping an evaluation unit with 8GB of DDR3L/1600 memory (two 4GB SO-DIMMs), an internal dual-band Intel Wireless-AC 7260 Wi-Fi/Bluetooth adapter, and a 180GB, Intel 530-series mSATA SSD. The unit also has a gigabit ethernet port if you want the performance only a cable can deliver.

It’s not the size of the dog

Despite its pint-size dimensions, the NUC D54250WYK packs a serious bite (performance will vary, of course, depending on the components you outfit it with). Our evaluation kit posted a Desktop WorldBench 8.1 score of 241. That’s much higher than the original NUC (which earned a mark of 156), and it’s better all-around performance than what we’ve gotten from most of the all-in-one PCs we’ve reviewed lately (with the notable exception of the Dell XPS 27 Touch). On the other hand, most of the tested all-in-ones have had less-powerful integrated graphics and have relied solely on mechanical hard drives for storage. The presence of discrete graphics processors and SSDs—even SSD cache drives—has a big impact on WorldBench scores.

The home remains the best environment for the NUC—not just in the entertainment center, but in the kitchen, bedroom, or even the garage. It’s a fantastic system for light productivity. And with support for technologies such as Intel’s Quick Sync Video, the revamped rig also delivers media-encoding and file-compression scores that are nearly twice as high as those of its predecessor. And it’s four times faster on image-editing tasks.

Small businesses might balk at the prospect of buying a kit and then fleshing it out. And larger businesses won’t like that the NUC’s Core i5-4250U processor doesn’t include Intel’s vPro technology. But if you can do without those features, you could stick a NUC on the back of a display, add a mouse and keyboard, and have a superefficient, light workstation.

This likely won’t come as a big surprise, but gaming is the one application I wouldn’t attempt on the NUC D54250WYK. Intel has come a long way with its integrated graphics hardware, but this machine still couldn’t manage to crack 30 frames per second in our tests of Crysis 3 or BioShock Infinite, even running at a resolution of 1024 by 768 pixels with the image-quality bar set low.

Big things from a small package

The NUC D54250WYK kit definitely raises the standard for barely-there PCs, but you’ll pay for that engineering prowess, both literally and figuratively. Building out a configuration like the one reviewed here will cost around $700 ($800 if you buy a Windows license). Intel’s decision to solder the CPU to the motherboard blocks your most important upgrade path, and the mSATA hard drive limits you to streaming media (unless you drop more cash on an external hard drive). Meanwhile, you could build a basic home-theater PC for about $300 less.

That said, the NUC packs a unique combination of performance and power-efficiency, and no other PC on the market can match its minuscule 4.6-by-4.4-by-1.4-inch dimensions. If you think that a pint-size PC potent at everything except games sounds appealing, you can’t go wrong with the NUC D54250WYK.
