  • How Google works hard to keep staff happy

    THERE comes a time in every girl’s life when she realises she will never work for Google. In his book, Work Rules, Google’s head of people operations (ie, human resources), Lazlo Bock, writes about the corporate Nirvana that is Google, the second-most-recognised brand in the world, after Apple. It had with a turnover of $66bn in 2014 and has 53,000 employees worldwide, including 2,500 in Dublin. Google is not a cult, but the book is contradictory, in that the author describes a company that demands idolatry, while also pointing out its flaws, and mistakes such as Google Wave, or employees with entitlement issues who object when some perk is threatened, like taking meat off the menu on Mondays (Google supplies free cafeteria facilities to employees).

  • Aircraft with laser weapons incoming by 2022

    Continuing its mission to expand its range of terrifying weaponry, the US Air Force has firm plans to equip its next generation of fighters with laser weapons capable of shooting down missiles and aircraft by 2022. While laser weapons as we know them as confined mostly to science fiction films, the actual use of lasers as a weapon deterrence against a missile for example, has been around for a number of years now. Only last year, the US Navy’s USS Ponce ship was the first in its arsenal to be equipped with the state-of-the-art LaWS (Laser Weapons System) to be used in defence against everything from airborne missiles to seaborne small craft such as dinghies. Well now, according to Breaking Defense, fighter aircraft in seven years’ time will be capable of being rigged up with laser weapons like nothing seen before.

  • There's an iPhone bug that can crash your phone with one text

    A bug in Apple’s iOS has been discovered that can crash an iPhone by sending a single text message containing a certain string of characters. The bug appears to be caused by a glitch in the way Apple’s iOS software displays non-Latin text in notification banners and alerts. Several users of online forum site Reddit discovered the flaw, which causes the iPhone receiving the message to crash and reboot as long as the recipient is not viewing the message conversation when the text is received. The bug appears to require a very specific set of characters to be sent, with those discussing the issue on Reddit reporting and sharing a single line of characters that cause the crash. q
  • Point Break remake trailer is fantastically silly

    Ah the 90s - when hair was big and it was still ok to have action films with actual blood and swearing in them. For example, 1991's Point Break - a ferociously male testosterone fest, despite being directed by now Oscar-winner Kathryn Bigelow. In it, Keanu Reeves went undercover to join a group of surfing and skydiving bank robbers led by the charasmatic Patrick Swayze. It had awfully cheesy dialogue, a scenery chewing Gary Busey and some gritty and gnarly action. q
