A Palestinian construction worker was arrested by Israeli police after Facebook incorrectly translated the text of one of his posts. Haaretz reports that the man uploaded a picture from his job at a construction site with the text “good morning” in Arabic. When officers used Facebook’s automatic translation service to…
USB Type-C is shaping up to be the holy grail of ports. It can charge your laptop, deliver 4K video, and transfer loads of USB data all over a single cable—all at the same time. What could be better? You’re looking at the answer.
Razer is making an Intel-powered Kinect for PCs. A 3D-sensing depth camera that uses Intel’s RealSense technology. Why would you want that? Well—Intel says it’ll let anyone put their face into a Twitch game streaming video.
“Cortana, wake up.” Seriously, that’s it. Say those words to a snoozing Windows 10 computer with a sixth-generation Intel Core processor, and it’ll wake right up from sleep. That’s because the new Intel Skylake processors will always be listening for that command, thanks to a low-power digital signal processor (DSP)…
We’ve still got no idea when you’ll be able to buy a smartphone with Google’s 3D-sensing Project Tango technology inside, but here’s a spot of good news: Intel is contributing its own 3D camera tech to Google to help make it a reality.
When the F-15 was created, it was created to be a pure air-to-air fighter, with the philosophy of “not a pound for air-to-ground” guiding designers. So how did Israel end up turning their F-15s into deadly long-range multi-role strike aircraft well before the F-15E Strike Eagle became a reality? Here’s how.
Apple! Apple! Apple! Yesterday, you were probably too busy gawking at Cupertino's precious new watch and giant smartphones to notice anything else that happened in the world of technology. There's no shame in that. But if you were paying attention to the 2014 Intel Developers Conference in San Francisco, you might…
Reports of Moore's Law's demise have been greatly exaggerated. In its opening Developers Forum keynote presentation at San Francisco's Moscone West Center today, Intel unveiled its newest class of minuscule Quark processors. And at 14nm, the Quark could well make most any device smarter.
The Israeli Defense Forces has a history of overzealous campaigns on its official social media accounts. So maybe we shouldn't be surprised that an IDF sniper doesn't take his job very seriously. Or that's the impression we get, since he Instagrammed a photo of what appears to be a Palestinian child in the crosshairs…
You'd think someone running one of the most sophisticated social media engagements in history would know better than to be super racist on Facebook. Or, you know, at all.
Sacha Dratwa enjoys some very normal things: macchiatos, swimming, vodka, hanging out with friends. You can see it right on his Facebook profile. But unlike most Facebook folks, this guy runs Israel's Internet propaganda war machine.
It looks like Anonymous followed up with its threat of digitally attacking Israel for taking military action in the Gaza strip. They've knocked down websites, deleted databases and have leaked e-mail addresses and passwords. It's a whopping takedown.
This was probably inevitable. As rockets fly back and forth between Israel and Gaza, Israeli infantry morale seems... a little too high?
A conflict is escalating in Gaza, where the Israeli Defense Force has been engaged with Hamas for the past several days. And whoever is running the IDF's Twitter account has decided to live-tweet the entire thing. The disconnect between the cavalier tone and the grave content is positively surreal.
The Egoz recon unit of the Israeli Defense Force is trained is an elite group trained in guerilla tactics. Sometimes they operate in cities. But sometimes, as seen above, they hide on the hills. Watching. Waiting. They're very, very good.
During his keynote address at IDF this morning, Intel vice president and Kangol enthusiast Mooly Eden confirmed that the revolutionary Thunderbolt I/O technology will be making the jump from Macs to PCs when as-of-yet unidentified Asus and Acer models ship in the first half of 2012.
Oh right! That thing on my MacBook Air that Apple made such a big deal about. Thunderbolt. It's extremely quick, and I'd like to use it! But where are the Thunderbolt accessories? But Belkin's got one to multiply your ports.
Five years ago, Israel fired over 600 of these top secret missiles at Hezbollah fighters during its war against Lebanon. The weapon's remained a mystery—until now. Meet Tamuz, Jerusalem's APC-launched, camera-guided, person-hunting aerial killer.
