When it comes to hiring, more organizations are casting a wide net to find top talent. As such, they are incorporating technology into their recruiting processes
It’s just not practical for companies to fly every potential candidate to their headquarters for an interview in person, so today’s job seekers need to be prepared for a recruiter to say the words "video interview." It can seem intimidating, especially if you’re not happy about the way you look on camera. But with these expert tips, you can learn to master the logistics of the video interview and spend your time focusing instead on wowing the company.

AUSTIN, Texas — A live conversation with two astronauts cruising 250 miles above the Earth at 17,500 miles per hour is the very definition of a high-wire act, but NASA, Skype and the SXSW organizers pulled it off on Saturday.
NASA Mission Control pulled in the Ku-Band antenna transmission from the International Space Station and connected it to a laptop running Skype. The rest worked pretty much the way your own Skype communications work at home. According to John Yembrick, a NASA social media manager, this Internet-assisted direct communication with the ISS wasn't possible until fairly recently.

Facebook is bringing back F8, the company's major developer conference, for the first time in almost three years
The F8 conference is scheduled for April 30 at the Design Concourse in San Francisco, and Facebook expects more than 1,500 developers from around the world to be in attendance
Facebook doesn't host F8 conferences on a set schedule; the last F8 took place in September 2011. But that doesn't mean the company takes the conference lightly Read more...More about Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, F8, Sxsw, and Andy Samberg
AUSTIN, Texas — Data whiz and nerd demigod Nate Silver revealed a slew of details about his site FiveThirtyEight's new home on ESPN during a conversation with Grantland's Bill Simmons here at SXSW on Saturday afternoon
The biggest piece of news was that FiveThirtyEight will launch on March 17, just in time for college basketball's annual March Madness tournament

The basketball bonanza should be a perfect stage for FiveThirtyEight to show off its data-heavy approach to sports journalism after Silver surged to mainstream prominence during the 2012 presidential elections.

Evgeny Feldman, a staff photographer for the Russian publication, Novaya Gazeta, visited a checkpoint Saturday on a road a few kilometers north of Crimea. On either side of the checkpoint, Ukraine forces faced their Russian counterparts in a vivid microcosm of the global, east-west struggle over Crimea.
In one area near the Russian encampment, it appears that a minefield has been dug.
His excursion took place as tension escalated in Ukraine and the Crimean peninsula. Warning shots were fired to prevent an international observer mission from entering Crimea, and there were new reports of Russian reinforcements arriving there.
Here is a collection of photos Feldman took on Saturday morning in and around the city of Chonhar, along with his observations. Read more...

AUSTIN, Texas — Embattled WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange made a rare onstage appearance at SXSWi on Saturday via Skype in a wide-ranging conversation about the NSA and WikiLeaks' role in the political discourse and online communications over the past decade.
The interview, conducted by Benjamin Palmer of the creative agency Barbarian Group, was marred by technology issues for those at SXSW as well as those trying to view the live stream online.

Assange answered questions from Palmer and curated from the hashtag #AskAssange on Twitter. It was less of a conversation than an opportunity for Assange to pontificate at length; the session was filled with talking points and sound bytes for which the WikiLeaks founder has become known Read more...More about Sxsw, Wikileaks, and Julian Assange
It's a safe bet that if there's a joke to be made about popular culture, The Simpsons has probably beaten you to it.
And with 25 seasons of comedy under its belt, America's favorite TV family has even managed to predict events that we laughed off until they came true in real life.
From heavy hinting at potential NSA snooping to goofier predictions of future video phones, we've rounded up 11 times that The Simpsons imagined the digital future with eerie accuracy.

AUSTIN, Texas — I have news for you: Electric cars can do donuts. In a recent test drive inside BMW's new i3 electric car, we tested this theory in a small Austin parking lot. To be fair, we never truly "spun" around, but that's only because I was nervous about breaking a law and the driver cautiously held back
The electric car, a small four-door, five-seater that gets 80 miles to a charge, is finally coming to the United States early this year — and it already has at least one nifty digital integration that could help make this sporty car more attractive to families. It's designed to help you keep track of, find and communicate with family members wherever they are. Life360, the family locator app that set up our test drive, now has dashboard-level integration with the new BMW i3, along with iPhone and Android handsets.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is pushing back at a major federal court decision from Thursday that ruled the agency did not have the right to fine a commercial photographer for flying a commercial drone
"The FAA is appealing the decision of an NTSB Administrative Law Judge to the full National Transportation Safety Board, which has the effect of staying the decision until the Board rules," the FAA said in a statement released one day after the ruling
News photographers, surveyors and nearly any company interested in using drones for commercial purposes rejoiced following the ruling that promised to unlock the skies to a myriad of new commercial ventures. Until Thursday, most would-be commercial drone users were expecting to wait until 2015 — when the FAA plans to release new guidelines for commercial drone use — for a legal framework allowing commercial drone flights Read more...More about Robots, Faa, Court Rulings, Tech, and Gadgets
Barbie's friends are more famous than yours
Mattel, the doll's creator, is known for its countless iterations of the doll — some stranger than others. One of the more popular versions of the doll is the celebrity doppelgänger. Everyone from Marilyn Monroe, to Elvis, to Beyoncé have been i-doll-ized, receiving a special 11.5-inch Barbie in their likeness, usually to commemorate a special event or achievement in pop culture
When blockbuster films like Twilight and The Hunger Games were released, Mattel celebrated by commissioning dolls of the movie's stars. When Jennifer Lopez announced a world tour, Barbie rolled out a mini-me of the singer's signature look. Read more...More about Lists, Celebrities, Features, Toys, and Barbie
Building a camera is not easy. I know this because I spent nearly two hours during a recent weekend trying to put together the Lomography Konstruktor, a DIY 35mm film SLR (single-lens reflex) camera.
Lomography is widely known for its toy cameras. The Diana and Fisheye Baby are two popular toy cameras that come to mind. And while buying a film camera instead of a digital one today is akin to buying a bulky CRT television instead of a flatscreen high-definition TV, that hasn't stopped Lomography from releasing cameras that try to bring back the nostalgia of the bygone analog days. With a low $35 price, is the Konstruktor more toy than camera? Read more...More about Reviews, Diy, Cameras, Tech, and Gadgets

An artist, who wishes to remain unnamed, decided it was high-time to bring back baby-faced '90s Leo into our lives. We agree — and what better place to show him off than modern-day New York City?
In the project, aptly named "mydaywithLeo," we see Leo ride the G train shirtless, play basketball in a park and look dashing in a Brooklyn menswear shop. The artist snapped the photos by carrying around a notebook full of Leo cutouts wherever he went Read more...More about Instagram, 90s, Film, Leonardo Dicaprio, and Watercooler

It's that time of the year again — Daylight Savings has arrived, and as we "spring forward," we set our alarm clocks up one hour
It can be tough to give up those precious minutes, but Dr. Christopher Winter, a sleep expert and spokesperson for health tracker Basis, is here for you. He shared his top six healthy sleeping tips with Mashable to help maximize your bedtime and quickly adjust to DST1. Sleep when you're sleepy.
