AUSTIN, Texas — Tech conference veterans call it Stuff We All Get, or SWAG. But a more accurate name might be Stuff We All Get — And Never Use
Companies typically give swag away to media and other attendees. Socks, hats, T-shirts, ponchos — most of the freebies end up in the attic, if not the trash. But one tech company at SXSW has cleverly turned the custom on its head. In the process, they up with one of the most provocative innovations we've ever seen at the interactive festival

KIEV –- Ukraine’s newly appointed prime minister vowed on Saturday to not give up “a centimeter” of land to Moscow, as dueling demonstrations turned violent in Crimea and Russian troops tighten their grip on the peninsula.
Meanwhile, separatists stormed the regional government headquarters in the eastern city of Lugansk, in the latest sign that unrest is spreading.
"This is our land. Our fathers and grandfathers have spilled their blood for this land,” Arseniy Yatseniuk told thousands of Ukrainians who had gathered at the monument to the nation’s most famous poet Taras Shevchenko on Sunday, commemorating the 200th anniversary of his birth Read more...More about Russia, Us World, World, Ukraine, and Ukraine Protests
A Malaysia Airlines flight carrying 239 people from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing disappeared from radar systems on Friday — and authorities still have no clue where it's gone.
‘‘So far there’s no report of any sightings,’’ Datuk Azharuddin Abdul Rahman, director general of Malaysia’s Department of Civil Aviation, said at a Sunday morning news conference in Kuala Lumpur on Malaysia Airlines Flight 370. The company says it is "fearing for the worst."
At this point, no further developments regarding MH370 has been confirmed. We are waiting for new updates from DCA on the SAR efforts.Us World and World

ICQ shed more than 30 percent of its audience in 2013, reported its owner Mail.ru Group, an LSE-listed Russian Internet group, in its financial report for 2013. The global instant-messaging service’s monthly user total shrank to 11 million across the world as of this past December, a notable contraction from 15.9 million a year before.
On the Russian market, the messenger recorded a loss of 31.7 percent in just a 12-month period, with an estimated 6.7 million Russian users in December 2013.
The decline came as little surprise to the market, as it bore out a trend for the messenger that emerged two years ago. In its analogous report for 2012, Mail.ru Group showed a 41 percent year-on-year drop in ICQ’s global user base and a 37.6 percent falloff domestically by December 2012.Building a user base “at a rate of 100 per second”
Even as ICQ was declining, millions of users have been registering with Telegram, a relative newcomer to the market masterminded by Pavel Durov, the founder of Russia’s largest social network, VKontakte, and his US-based company Digital Fortress.
The new messenger, which was rolled out last summer as a “faster and safer” English-only competitor to all existing messengers, passed the significant marker of 10+ million downloads as of Feb. 21, according to Google Play stats.
Facebook’s $19 billion acquisition of WhatsApp appeared to give a great boost to Telegram’s recent upsurge. In the wake of the deal, many disappointed WhatsApp users have defected to Telegram. In Chile, Germany, Mexico, the Netherlands, Spain, and several other countries, this mobile messenger has even become the most downloaded application.
The growth in Telegram’s customer base is also evident from a steady flow of new user reviews on Google Play: some of the authors have been quite frank in their admission that they migrated to Telegram over the WhatsApp sale.
Mashable.com reported that on February 23, “the company added 4.95 million users on that day alone,” noting that “new users were registering at a rate of 100 per second.”
The influx immediately drove Telegram to sixth place on the iOS Top Charts of the world’s most downloaded apps. The messenger later slackened its pace, however, sliding by March 4 to the 18th position on Apple’s Topappcharts.com.
Among Telegram’s target groups are Internet users concerned with privacy issues. According to Durov, “messages sent through Telegram cannot be bugged by third parties,” as the messenger offers users “encryption protection too sophisticated even for security agencies to overcome.”
Last but not least, there is usability. Telegram is a cloud service, making it much faster than WhatsApp or Line. Another plus is that the application can be installed on several devices simultaneously, including on a desktop.

AUSTIN, Texas — Craig Ferguson wants to fill your television with mind-blowing science.
The host of CBS’ Late Late Show announced via a videotaped message Saturday at SXSWi that the insanely popular Facebook page "I f*cking love science" will serve as the inspiration for a television show of the same name, set to debut later this year on Science Channel
Ferguson will be an executive producer for the project, which will feature a mix of live-action, animation and recreations in each 60-minute episode.
“If you know anything about me, you know I love science,” Ferguson said in the video to a crowd of 3,000 people attending the Science Channel's SXSWi event. “Science has a naughty secret –- it’s that all things are connected.

At first glance, these images look like paintings reminiscent of 19th century Impressionist art.
But a closer look at the series, titled "San Francisco Impressions", reveals carefully layered photographs that capture bustling scenes around the California city artist Christopher Dydyk calls home. It's the unique editing process that gives his photographs their rich and ghostly qualities
Dydyk told Mashable that although he believes traditional photography is beautiful, it "lacks the multidimensionality to fully express the sensations of energy and joy" that he feels while taking in San Francisco's scenery. To better capture these feelings, the photographer snaps his city scenes from all possible angles before digitally layering his images into one photograph Read more...More about Pics, Art, Photography, Watercooler, and Travel Leisure
