Escape prying eyes with this browser plugin for Chrome and VPN Client – Windscribe from Canada

Want to guard your privacy easily? Surf the BBC and out of area sites freely? Escape marketers, criminals, governments, Sessions, NSA?

Foil all ad beacons cookies social widget trackers hide your IP address draw the curtain for your ISP snooper etc?

Windscribe with 50GB (usually 10GB for the free version) is free at giveaway-club.com tonight and tomorrow Jun 3/24 Fri Sat NYC (I have checked out giveaway-club for six months and they reliably monitor and keep out all junk from their downloads).

Windscribe is simply a Chrome plugin and a Windows VPN Client as well if you want, no extra cost, the latter creating a data tunnel from your PC to their servers which is encrypted and then goes on elsewhere using their IP address which is shared by all. So all your apps are anonymous too.

What’s great is the Chrome browser plug in will block all the ad trackers which follow you across websites even with a VPN Client and it will rotate your user agent ie browser id.

Too bad Sessions eat that one up!

Is it perfect? No but claims 90% anonymity, Will they rob your info themselves? No, they are Canadian! (just above Ottawa).


“What does the desktop application do?
The desktop application is a Virtual Private Network (VPN) client. It creates an encrypted tunnel from your computer to our servers, and all your activity is sent through the tunnel. This has 2 advantages:

Your Internet Service Provider (ISP) IP address is masked, so any website you visit or any applications you use (Skype, email providers, BitTorrent peers, etc), will see our IP address, which is shared by thousands of people, so your activity is mixed with other users.
Your Internet Service Provider cannot see what you do online. This is much more important than you think.
What does the browser extension do?
The browser extension provides a “Lite” VPN client, which does the same thing as the desktop one, but only in your browser. Any other applications you may be using on your computer will utilize your ISP provided IP address.
Additionally it blocks thousands of ad beacons and trackers that could follow you across the websites you visit, and compromise your privacy even if you are already using a VPN. It also blocks various “social widgets”, such as Facebook Like buttons, Twitter badges, etc, which are embedded into millions of websites and report all your activity to their respective companies. It also rotates your user agent (which identifies your browser), which further scrambles your online activities in the eyes of whoever is watching.

Why should I use both products?
Contrary to popular belief, a VPN client alone will not keep you anonymous or significantly help your privacy online, unless you take extreme measures, at which point using the Internet becomes a burden.
Anonymous IP address alone provides some protection, however marketers, criminals and governments have stepped up their game which allows them to track you even if you already use a VPN. In order to combat this, browser level protection is also necessary to improve your chances of staying anonymous.

Will Windscribe make me 100% anonymous?
Unlikely. Achieving complete anonymity online is extremely difficult if not impossible. Anyone who claims otherwise most likely has a pair of pants that are on fire. Windscribe will get you 90% there, however the last 10% entirely depends on the user.”

No more punctures – plastic spokes for bikes instead!

Will this work? They have tried before, but this time, maybe it will.

No pump!

Wave goodbye to punctures! Airless bike tyre uses recycled plastic spokes for a smooth ride
The futuristic airless wheels are made from 100 per cent recycled materials

Getting a puncture is a frustrating experience for any bike rider, but it could soon become a thing of the past.

A new set of plastic tyres could consign bike pumps and repair kits to the history books.

The unique design does away with the air-filled inner tube of conventional tyres, in favour of rigid plastic spokes that support the weight of the bike and its rider.

– Airless design means broken glass, sharp metal and other road debris pose no threat of a puncture

– Shock-absorbent structure will provide a smooth ride

– Will reduce the amount of effort required to cycle, by lowering friction between the tyre and road surface.

– Wheels are made from 100 per cent recycled materials

– Manufacturer says it is working on making the wheels themselves recyclable, to create an eco-friendly and sustainable cycle of production

The futuristic looking wheels use thermo-plastic resin spokes – a synthetic material that is flexible when heated and hardens when cooled – which means it can be moulded into a variety of shapes.

The spokes stretch between an inner hub and the outer rubber tyre, and have been designed to be shock-absorbent to provide a smooth ride.

And because they contain no air, broken glass, sharp metal and other road debris pose no threat of a puncture.

They also promise to reduce the amount of effort required to cycle, by lowering the friction between the tyre and road surface.

Tokyo-based manufacturer Bridgestone says that the wheels were created from completely recycled materials.

The firm is also working on making the wheels themselves recyclable, to create an eco-friendly and sustainable cycle of production.

The wheels are currently a concept design, but the firm is hoping they will be available to buy in 2019.

The design is based on previous work by the company, dubbed the ‘Air Free Concept’, to provide wheels for cars and other motor vehicles.

The wheels have been in development since 2011, and in 2013 the company announced a second generation, which promised to deliver 60 km/hour speed (37 miles/hour) for ultralight vehicles.

In a statement on Bridgestone’s website at the time, a spokesman said: ‘There are developments and enhancements to be made before airless tires are available for consumers.

‘Finding a way to avoid trapping debris within the spokes, as well as developing the best way to distribute weight evenly and consistently transmit loads are a couple of these hurdles.

‘For reasons like these, many spectators think airless tires are still a decade or so away.

‘Despite this, the demand to keep up with the continuous advancements in the auto industry suggest that airless tires would be a welcome step forward for consumers as well as the auto industry.’

The technology also promises to reduce carbon-dioxide emissions in vehicles which adopted them.

A number of vehicles have already adopted the tyres, from quad bikes to golf carts. And the technology could reduce carbon dioxide emissions by reducing road friction +4

The tyre manufacturer claims that about 90 per cent of energy loss comes from resistance created by repeated changes in the shape of the tyres as they roll.

By simplifying the structure, Bridgestone says it was able to minimise this energy loss, whatever the fuel source, be it electric, petrol or man power.

And a number of vehicles have already adopted these tyres, from quad bikes to golf carts.

It is unclear how much the airless tires will retail at.

It’s fine reducing the rolling resistance by reducing the foorprint (flexing of the tyre) until you want to stop quickly!

Lithium Ion Batteries to Last Forever

Lifetime lithium-ion in view as serendipity uncovers way to make it happen for clever student:

Scientists can now make lithium-ion batteries last a lifetime – Computerworld

The discovery could lead to vastly longer lifespans for batteries in computers, smartphones, appliances, cars and spacecraft

By Lucas Mearian

Who says playing around is a waste of time?

Researchers at the University of California at Irvine (UCI) said that’s exactly what they were doing when they discovered how to increase the tensile strength of nanowires that could be used to make lithium-ion batteries last virtually forever.

Researchers have pursued using nanowires in batteries for years because the filaments, thousands of times thinner than a human hair, are highly conductive and have a large surface area for the storage and transfer of electrons.

The problem they have encountered, however, is that nanowires are also extremely fragile and don’t hold up well to repeated discharging and recharging, known as “cycling.” For example, in a typical lithium-ion battery, they expand and grow brittle, which leads to cracking.

UCI doctoral candidate Mya Le Thai solved the brittleness conundrum by coating a gold nanowire in a manganese dioxide shell and encasing the assembly in an electrolyte made of a Plexiglas-like gel. The combination, they said, is reliable and resistant to failure.

LIthium-ion batteries
Energy Letters
Gold nanowires were surrounded by an electrodeposited layer of Plexiglas-like gel called propylene carbonate, which has a thickness of between 143 and 300 nanometers. Identical capacitors without the gel show cycle stabilities ranging from 2000 to 8000 cycles. With it, the nanowires stood up to 200,000 recharges.

The findings were published today in the American Chemical Society’s Energy Letters. Hard work combined with serendipity paid off in this case, according to senior author Reginald Penner.

“Mya was playing around, and she coated this whole thing with a very thin gel layer and started to cycle it,” Penner, chair of UCI’s chemistry department, said in a statement. “She discovered that just by using this gel, she could cycle it hundreds of thousands of times without losing any capacity.”

“That was crazy,” he added, “because these things typically die in dramatic fashion after 5,000 or 6,000 or 7,000 cycles at most.”

The researchers believe the gel plasticizes the metal oxide in the battery and gives it flexibility, preventing cracking.

Thai, the study’s leader, cycled the nanowire-enhanced electrode up to 200,000 times over three months without detecting any loss of capacity or power and without fracturing any nanowires.

“All nanowire capacitors can be extended from 2000 to 8000 cycles to more than 100,000 cycles, simply by replacing a liquid electrolyte with a… gel electrolyte,” the researchers wrote in their paper.

The result: commercial batteries that could last a lifetime in computers, smartphones, appliances, cars and spacecraft.

“The coated electrode holds its shape much better, making it a more reliable option,” Thai said in a statement. “This research proves that a nanowire-based battery electrode can have a long lifetime and that we can make these kinds of batteries a reality.”

Why vinyl, why old? Nostalgia or something better?

Come on don’tcha love them – take them out of the bottom drawer! Graphic by Ellen Weinstein for NYT

Here’s an interesting think piece exploring the fruitful topic of why old tech hangs on and eventually makes some kind of comeback in many uses. Examples might include the celebrity fashion for flip phones (which avoid hacking unlike smartphones) and old digital cameras as well as film, which impose slow photography levels of choice and discrimination on photographers who otherwise flail away with machine gun repetition in the hope they will (and often do) capture shots they would otherwise never shoot.

More than 571 million print books were sold in the United States in 2014. About 55 million newspapers still land on doorsteps every morning. As for those vinyl records, 13 million LPs were sold in 2014, the highest count in 25 years

Why Vinyl Records and Other ‘Old’ Technologies Die Hard

For a glimpse of what teenagers are into these days, all you have to do is visit Abbot Kinney Boulevard in the Venice neighborhood of Los Angeles. On weekend nights, the half-mile shopping drag is packed with style-conscious kids who traipse past coffee shops, ice cream parlors and boutiques, often while taking selfies.

Yet one of the most popular destinations for these teenagers is a white, single-story building with big pink letters on the roof that spell “Vnyl.” The store sells vinyl records, and the kids who gather there are often in awe.

“I’d say half of the teens who hang out in my store have never seen a record player before,” said Nick Alt, the founder of Vnyl. “They will walk up to the turntable, and they have no concept where to put the needle.” But once they figure out that the needle goes into the outermost groove, those smartphone-toting teenagers are hooked.

Whenever a new technology comes out, we often believe it will make an older technology obsolete. As a reporter who has been covering technology for The New York Times for more than a decade, I’ve made such proclamations, saying that the iPad would kill the Kindle (I later realized the error of my ways, and now own both), that eBooks would be the death of print (I later reversed myself, several times), and that driverless cars will make driving passé and allow us to nap in the front seat (this has yet to be disproved).

But what I’ve come to realize is that while the new thing gets people excited, the old thing often doesn’t go away. And if it does, it takes a very long time to meet its demise.

Just look at film cameras. You would think they have been vanquished from the planet, but millions of people still use them. In 2012, more than 35 million rolls of camera film were sold, compared with 20 million the year before.

And while Polaroid has filed for bankruptcy (twice) in the age of digital cameras, the company is making a resurgence (again). One of Polaroid’s largest growing demographics, surprisingly, is teenagers who want a tangible photo but also don’t want to wait. (Polaroid has also become the go-to camera for people who take nude photos and fear that their phones could be hacked.)

Other types of physical media have also held on.

More than 571 million print books were sold in the United States in 2014. About 55 million newspapers still land on doorsteps every morning. As for those vinyl records, 13 million LPs were sold in 2014, the highest count in 25 years, according to the Recording Industry Association of America. (Records are also one of the few growth areas for the beleaguered industry.)

So why does old tech survive and, in some cases, undergo a revival? For some consumers, it’s about familiarity (e.g., newspapers and print books), while for others, it’s about nostalgia (e.g., record players and film cameras).

For example, I’ve been taking photos for over 25 years, and what made me fall in love with photography was the dirt, grit and grime of film (I used to shoot with Tri-X 3200 for the film nerds out there). And as much as I love my digital cameras, I’ve been shooting with film again to capture some of that visceral quality I no longer get with pixels.

The resurgence of old tech doesn’t stop with physical media.

For example, tens of millions of Americans still own a landline; millions of USB thumb drives are still being used, even though you can store anything in the cloud free; and people still use and buy tens of millions of flip phones every year, including such notables as Mayor Bill de Blasio, Anna Wintour, Warren Buffett, Iggy Pop and Rihanna. Pagers also never completely died.

You’ve probably heard the saying that the minute that you drive a car off a dealer’s lot, it loses value. Well, that is no longer true for old cars. Some vintage cars have increased in value by 500 percent. (One reason for this is that younger car owners want to be able to fix and tinker with their own cars. Try doing that with a Tesla, and you’ll void the warranty.)

Of course, there are some outdated technologies that die a fateful death and never return. I don’t know many people with a dedicated car phone, for example. (Though I’m sure some hipster just posted one to Instagram.)

To be fair, we have been wrongly predicting the demise of old technologies for some time. In 1876, for example, when The New York Times first wrote about the telephone, and later the phonograph, the writers of the day said that these devices would empty the concert halls and churches, as no one would ever want to leave home again.

And yet, just this month, Diplo held a concert for an estimated half-million people in Cuba. Something tells me that some of those people will also be buying the performer’s album on vinyl.
