pipes.digital is an intriguing early-stage alternative to Yahoo! Pipes

A lot of people swore by Yahoo! Pipes. The site was a side-project that was never part of Yahoo’s core business, but had die-hard fans nonetheless. The service allowed people to combine data from sources, easily applying filters and manipulations through a visual programming language, almost like Scratch. When Yahoo discontinued the service in 2015, it left its loyal users scrambling for alternatives. Most fled to IFTTT and Zapier. One new service that wants to pick up the mantle dropped by Yahoo! Pipes is pipes.digital — an early-stage product that already shows promise. Although it’s nowhere near as feature-rich as IFTTT…This story continues at The Next Web

Did outsourcing cause the British Airways IT meltdown?

It’s been a rough few days for British Airways. On Saturday, the iconic British flag carrier experienced a serious IT meltdown, which resulted in planes being unable to take off, and passengers unable to check into their flights. This global outage is bad news for British Airways. The airline is expected to be on the hook for £150 million (roughly $192 million) in compensation to passengers who had their bank holiday weekend plans disrupted. So, what caused it? British Airways CEO Alex Cruz confirmed to the Guardian that the issue was with a power surge at one of its UK-based data…This story continues at The Next Web

Linguistic Analysis Suggests WannaCry Hackers Could be From Southern China

It’s been almost four weeks since the outcry of WannaCry ransomware, but the hackers behind the self-spread ransomware threat have not been identified yet. However, two weeks ago researchers at Google, Kaspersky Lab, Intezer and Symantec linked WannaCry to ‘Lazarus Group,’ a state-sponsored hacking group believed to work for the North Korean government. Now, new research from dark web

Someone made a fidget spinner simulation so you can waste your day away

Forget about dishing out 10 bucks for a fidget spinner at your local convenience store: Someone has built a virtual simulator you can spin all you want entirely free of charge. Developed by designer and developer Mike Bodge, FFFFidget is a web-based interactive simulation that lets you toy around with a virtual fidget spinner as if it was the real thing. The app is fairly simple: All you need to do to get the toy moving is open the website and mimic a spinning move with your mouse cursor. The fidget then goes on to rotate for several cycles – depending on…This story continues at The Next Web

Stop dragging kids away from their screens

Every parent thinks it’s healthy for their kids to play outside. I want it for my kids, my parents wanted it for me, and my grandparents wanted the same for my parents. Right now, it’s a hot topic among parents that mobile phones are turning kids into zombies who tune out and do nothing else but play games and chat. Parents introduce ‘screentime’ and have long discussions with each other about handling their kids’ screen addiction and how get them to go out and play outside, like normal kids. I’ve got some advice for those parents: Take a deep breath and…This story continues at The Next Web

Economists have figured out how to extract the most profit from ransomware

Ransomware is a type of malware that impairs the functionality of a computer (for example, by encrypting files on the hard drive), and then demands the victim pay a ransom in order to return their system to normal. It’s frighteningly common. The term ‘Ransomware’ first entered the Oxford English Dictionary in 2012. We have seen several ugly and dangerous permutations of it, including CryptoLocker, CryptoWall, and most recently, WannaCry. But it’s not the cash cow you probably think it is. Take WannaCry, for example. This specimen devastated the UK National Health Service, as well as countless private sector businesses, like…This story continues at The Next Web

How Shoto takes the hassle out of tracking pictures taken at your wedding

I’m getting married later this year. While I’ve paid for a professional photographer to document the day, I’m conscious that my friends and family will be there, taking their own photographs with their cell phones and cameras. Cell phone cameras have improved significantly over the past few years, to the point where they produce shots that are actually frameable. These will inevitably be shared across a variety of platforms – Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Hello Shoto I bumped into a service called Shoto the other week. Since then, I’ve been eying up using it for my wedding. We first wrote about…This story continues at The Next Web

Two dudes start ‘Uber for limos’ to offer free rides to nearby strangers

Stretch is not your ordinary ride-sharing service. It is a bit like Uber – except that it offers rides in limousines entirely free of charge. But here’s the catch: Unlike Uber, Stretch has only one car available and it could be literally anywhere in the United States at this moment. The unusual app was co-founded by friends James Potter and Bart Proost earlier this year, when the two set out on a quest to become the first people to visit all 48 contiguous states voyaging around in a 28-foot vintage limo.

This site helps you donate money to charities every time Donald Trump tweets

Donald Trump’s Twitter feed isn’t good for much, except perhaps as a psychological case study of what happens when you mix hubris, insanity, and unfathomable power, and drip-feed it to the world 140 characters at a time. One person trying to make the most of this undrained swamp is Allyson Kapin, co-founder of Rad Campaign, a social change web agency. Her latest project, WeCanResist.It, lets you turn The Donald’s tweets into donations for non-profits and charities opposing the actions of the Cheeto Benito. When you sign up, you can choose the charities you wish to support, and how much you wish…This story continues at The Next Web

My debt with you

Last week, my CTO explained to me and a group of people that his focus for the next few weeks was on our ‘technological debt’. I’d never heard the term before, and by the puzzled looks on everyone else’s faces around the table, I assume I wasn’t the only one. Fortunately our CTO is a perceptive person, so he understood what our quizzical expressions meant and explained further. Technical debt is a concept that developers use to describe the extra work that comes with taking shortcuts. You’ll cut some corners, forgo documenting things, fulling know that this is all going…This story continues at The Next Web
