Twine review: the little blue box that hacks the world around you
It’s hard to remember life before we were bombarded with notifications throughout the day on all manner of devices, for everything from Twitter replies to earthquake alerts in Japan. With very few exceptions, though, these all have one limiting factor in common: you’re relying on someone else’s software to interpret data and relay it to you. What if you could program your own notifications from objects or conditions in your physical environment, set to tell you anything you want to know, when you need to know it?
That’s the proposition offered by Supermechanical’s Twine, a small turquoise box crammed with sensors. Launched on Kickstarter last year, it takes standard accelerometers, thermometers, and other sensors, and fits them into an ambitious package that promises to be a lot easier to set up than your average Arduino-powered DIY assembly. How does Twine work? Does it even work at all? Will it change your life? Let’s find out.
Twitter #Music for iPhone and web coming later today
After a week of teasing, Twitter has unveiled Twitter #Music, its new music discovery and streaming app. The new service is focusing on a recommendation engine that pulls in trending data from across Twitter and your followers to offer up music recommendations from the vast catalogs of iTunes, Spotify, and Rdio. The app will be available on iOS starting today, but there’s no Android app quite yet. However, everyone will be able to access Twitter #Music through the browser at music.twitter.com.

Google Glass specs confirm, App released.
Google have released the Android App for their upcoming Glass device, and confirmed the specs on their website. As rumored, the device won’t have a traditional speaker for audio playback, instead using a bone conduction transducer. Battery life is said to last ‘one full day of typical use’.
The full specs:
Google bought DNNresearch Inc, a 2012 startup to improve imagery recognition.
Voice and image recognition are hard enough tasks when computers are asked to make direct recognition decisions like “did the user just say ‘red’?” But as anyone who as interacted with Siri, a voice dictation service like those provided by Dragon or even an object-based recognition system like Google Goggles, computers find it very hard to perform context-based recognition such as deciding between “red” and “read,” or if the blurry object seen in a video is a indeed a human face. Google’s most likely going to leverage DNN’s research into services like Google Now, that already try to deliver data to a user based on contextual pointers, its Glass systems, which already include voice recognition, its purported Siri rival, and other efforts to categorize the world.
