Let's take a trip to the holidays in 2018. The air is humming, not with Christmas cheer, but with the gnawing buzz of Amazon's delivery drones
Though greeted enthusiastically by the public at first, opinion began to turn when a drone veered off-course and smashed into someone's windshield, causing a 16-car pile-up and several deaths. Then, in a case in Des Moines, a grandmother was felled by an errant drone that smacked her in the back of the head, prompting her to spill forward and causing irreversible damage to her frontal cortexAmazon, Jeff Bezos, Business, Us, and World

On Sunday's episode of 60 Minutes, a cautiously optimistic Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos introduced his plans for Amazon Prime Air, a future program that would use small, autonomous drones to deliver packages.
Bezos said Prime Air could be up and running as soon as four to five years from now.
But before his plan can truly take off, the Federal Aviation Administration first needs to figure out how to allow commercial drones into U.S. airspace. As it stands now, anyone who wants to fly unmanned aircraft for commercial purposes must apply to do so, and those applications are reviewed on a case-by-case basis.

Monday is your last chance to rise to temporary stardom as a virtual DJ, and we're here to help you do so.
For the past couple of years, Turntable.fm let users create and join "rooms" where they took turns selecting music to play for everyone else in the virtual room.
While many users enjoyed the site's collaborative listening experience, Turntable.fm didn't bring in much revenue. The team recently announced that the site would shut down in order to launch Turntable Live, an interactive platform that allows fans to attend virtual concerts and chat with artists as they play music.

At first glance, Eden Full may seem like a typical Princeton undergrad, but she's far from typical. The 21-year-old is a Thiel Fellow and inventor of The SunSaluter, a solar panel that pivots to face the sun without requiring a motor. Full didn't set out to radicalize the way the developing world sources power — she was a self-proclaimed "solar enthusiast" by the age of 10. But her ingenuity and a tip from someone at an international science fair led her to optimize solar energy, so a solar panel produces up to 40% more electricity. And all it takes is gravity and some soda bottles.
For her work, Full was named Ashoka’s Youth Social Entrepreneur of the Year, and her SunSaluter won Mashable and the UN Foundation's Startups for Social Good Challenge in 2011. Oh, and in her spare time, she launched TEDxPrincetonU in 2010. Not bad for 21 years of age. Read more...More about Gadgets, Us World, Social Good, World, and Supported
Holiday togetherness is not everyone's cup of tea, but luckily, Netflix can help you escape.
This is the pitch in a new ad campaign from the video service. The inaugural TV spot in the campaign features a porcelain tree topper with the hard-boiled voice of The Sopranos' Lorraine Bracco. The tree topper has seen it all in 34 Christmases with the McDermott family, including a bowling ball that once came crashing through the ceiling and the year Aunt Ruthie burned the yams
The tree topper rattles off a few more such moments — remember the time Uncle Luther brought fake snow? — before reveling in a fairly new holiday tradition: settling on the couch to watch Netflix Read more...More about Advertising, Netflix, Tv, Movies, and Business
We all have unique passions in life. The Passion Genome is an interactive site that lets you explore the most common passion and shared connections on Facebook, much like the human genome project uncovers genetic similarities among people.
Log on to the Passion Genome to create your own portrait and explore the full genome. Facebook has more than 1.2 billion users today, and the average user likes an average of 40 pages, though U.S. Facebook users are more active, liking 70 pages on average. That means there are a lot of likes and connections to explore in the Genome.
To demonstrate the site's cool features, we've recruited Lil Bub, whose adorable, tongue-laden portrait is above. A few of her passions include the ASPCA, The Humane Society and The Owlery — her portrait is a mix of her 99 Facebook passions in the social good, food, animal and business categories.

The social network will soon allow users to "unfollow" friends whose comments and updates they want to remove from their News Feed, according to a Facebook spokesperson
The new Unfollow button, which was first reported by TechCrunch, will work in the same way that users were able to "hide all" from friends in the past, simply with new phrasing. The idea is that users can block content they don't want to see from their friends without going so far as defriending them Read more...More about Facebook, News Feed, Follow, Unfollow, and Social Media
The video above shows arguably the most jaw-dropping ending to a game in college football history. Auburn's Chris Davis caught a missed Alabama field goal on Saturday night, then returned it from the back of his own end zone 110 yards for a game-winning touchdown with no time left time on the clock
The play put Auburn in position to potentially win a national title this season while ending a 15-game winning streak for Alabama, which has won college football's national title the past two seasons
So how have students and fans at football-crazed Auburn been treating Davis since his historic heroics? Quite well. Quite well, indeed Read more...More about College Sports, Entertainment, and Sports

Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu was speaking at a government function in July when a man sitting a few rows behind him pulled a Liberator, the infamous 3D-printed gun that the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) recently defined as a "lethal weapon."
The gun posed no real danger. The man bearing it was just a TV reporter trying to prove how easy it is to sneak a 3D-printed plastic gun past security checks that include metal detectors
In the United States, a law prohibits amateur gunsmiths from manufacturing undetectable plastic guns to prevent such a scenario. However, the law is set to expire in just a week, on Dec. 9. Read more...More about Law, Us Government, Legislation, 3d Printing, and Us World
It's been about a month since Instagram users have been subjected to ads in their feeds, and the photogenic world somehow hasn’t ended. In fact, the companies behind the ads seem to be reaping some benefit, even if the actual value proposition here is still a bit foggy.
Curalate, an outfit working with companies that want to advertise on social media, looked at all five brands included in Instagram’s first push. If nothing else, the paid ads were much more effective at attracting likes than the unsponsored posts by the same brands, as the chart below shows:
How much are a few hundred thousand “likes” on Instagram worth? That’s debatable. Once someone has “liked” an advertiser’s post, there is a higher chance his friends on the service will find it. And there’s a squishy sort of credibility that comes with having a big number on your posts. Read more...More about Advertising, Marketing, Social Media, Business, and Instagram
Yahoo announced on Monday it acquired startup SkyPhrase to make finding what you want online easier, without using disjointed words and phrases in the search form.

Olympic diver Tom Daley has come out as bisexual, announcing the news through a YouTube video. The 19-year-old British athlete spoke openly about his relationship with a man in a 5-minute clip that has gone viral, amassing almost 1 million views in a few hours
"Come spring this year, my life changed, massively, when I met someone, and it made me feel so happy, so safe and everything feels great, and, well, that someone is a guy," Daley says in the video
"Of course I still fancy girls, but, I mean, right now I'm dating a guy and I couldn't be happier," he adds. "It feels safe, and it really does feel right." Read more...More about Viral Videos, Olympics, Athletes, Lgbt, and Entertainment
United Kingdom Prime Minister David Cameron and a retinue of more than 100 business representatives — the largest-ever British trade delegation to go to China — descended on Beijing Monday. Cameron met with Chinese premier Li Keqiang, discussing a multibillion-dollar free trade deal between China and the EU, as well as a separate one with just the UK that the British government says could generate up to £1.8 billion ($3 billion) per year for the economy.
Cameron is also in China to do some damage control. Relations between the two countries have been cool since Cameron met the Dalai Lama last May, prompting the Chinese foreign ministry to claim that he had “hurt the feelings of the Chinese people.” It didn’t hurt UK-China trade — British exports to China were 20% higher in the first three quarters of 2013 than in 2010 as a whole — but British officials think it could be boosted even more.
