DT Daily: Google I/O protests, lifelogging camera, Netfix anime series

Today on DT Daily: Protesters pop up at Google’s big party, record your entire life in HD, and Netflix is turning Japanese.

Google’s big I/O 2014 conference is underway in California but some of the biggest stories aren’t about the tech. Several protests have popped up at the giant tech fair, accusing Google of perhaps wavering from their Don’t Be Evil credo.

Two of the biggest sore points seem to be the battle over net neutrality, and Bay Area housing problems stemming from the perceived income gap created by Google’s massive fortunes. Ten people were arrested during a net neutrality protest, a woman called out the housing issue and one guy stood up during a presentation and yelled that Google was a totalitarian corporation bent on designing killer robots. We’ve got more details about I/O hijinks at the link below.

Here’s a new word to add to your tech vocabulary: Lifelogging. Lifelogging is the practice of recording every waking moment of your exciting life, usually with some sort of wearable camera – such as this one. Appropriately called Lifelogger, the little camera records in 1080P HD and can stream your adventures to the cloud or web via wifi, or through your phone. Otherwise, built-in memory records your precious moments, including GPS data.

Software organizes your videos into a timeline so you can relive baby’s first steps of that fantastic cup of coffee over and over again. Lifelogger is wrapping up a Kickstarter campaign and with a few days left, they still have a ways to go, so if you’re interested, hit the link below to enable your own total recall for a $169 pledge.

Netflix is inching ever closer to video streaming domination with acclaimed original content like House of Cards and Orange is the new Black, so what’s next? Anime, of course. Netflix is calling their 12-episode series “Nights of Sidonia” an “original series,” although that’s a bit odd since it’s already been released in Japan. The story pits genetically engineered human space pilots against shape-shifting aliens bent on wiping out the human race, of course.

Hey, what did you expect, it’s anime. You can get your binge-watching fix of saucer-eyed space warriors with either an English dub, or in Japanese with subtitles, beginning July 4th.

With the S10e and S10 Plus, do we really need the Samsung Galaxy S10?

The Galaxy S10 is the middle child in this year’s Galaxy S10 range, between the Galaxy S10e, and the Galaxy S10 Plus. There’s no striking reason to buy it, but it’s still an excellent phone you’ll be happy with.
