|p||TechCrunch reports on the next version of Formlabs 3D printer, the Form 2.|
Formlabs printers use resin hardened by lasers. Printed objects must be cured in rubbing alcohol.
The Form 2 has a 25-200 micron layer height and a new system that allows you to swap out official resins with your own brew.
The system also has a “wiper” arm to prepare each layer as it is printed, removing fragments.
The Form 2 is available for order now for $3,499 plus $149 per liter of resin.
|t||India has amended its controversial National Encryption Policy to exempt “mass encryption products.” The first draft of the law required users to store any encrypted communication on their phones for 90 days. That would have included apps like WhatsApp, Viber and Hike. The draft still requires software makers to register with the government if their product uses encryption. The Department of Electronics and Information Technology has opened the draft up for public comment until October 16.||http://www.cnet.com/news/india-tried-to-make-deleting-instant-messages-and-e-mails-illegal/|

|t||yaniv05 sent us a tale of two Echo's. Over at ZDNet, author David Gewirtz wrote about the night of "Evil Alexa." The Amazon Web Services outage this weekend led one of his bedroom Echos to go rogue. The unit not only refused to turn on the lights, but any request resulted in red spinning lights while Alexa spoke slow, meaningless words. Somehow Gewirtz was able to sleep and his alrm rang as normal from the Echo the next morning, however he could not get it to turn off. Gerwitz finall unplugged the devices, and then wrote an article pondering the future of the internet of things.||http://www.zdnet.com/article/the-night-alexa-lost-her-mind/|
|p||CaptainChudd pointed out that Nvidia has parrtnered with several manufacturers to put a specially “binned” version of its GTX 980 desktop graphics cards into laptops.|
Asus and MSI are among the companies who will sell the 17-inch 1080p display behemoths with the card that has 2048 CUDA cores, up to 8GB of 7GHz GDDR5 memory, and a 1126MHz core clock.
Users will be able to tweak the fan curve of the GPU , as well as adjust the core clock and memory speeds.
Nvidia's senior product manager for GeForce notebooks Brian Choi told Ars Technica "We're not going for the mainstream guy who's looking for something thin and light.”

- 3D printed guide for a rat’s sciatic nerve on cutom-built machine
- scanned nerve, printed silicone guide, saturated with motor and sensory nerve growth triggers
- implanted in rat, regrew nerve, 10-12 weeks later normal walking ability
- previously only done with straight line nerves
|Q’s for Dr. Kiki|
- What did they do?
- Why do it this way?
- Can this be done in humans?
- Can this be done on any 3D printer?
- Can you scan any healthy nerve and replicate it?
- Why is the sciatic nerve more compicated to grow?
- Why not just print the nerve itself?

|This is Andrew from finally raining Portland Oregon. I wanted to suggest www.reddit.tv it's a playlist of videos from r/videos by default but can be set to any subreddit for an ever updating playlist of the best videos around the internet at that time.||http://www.reddit.tv/|

|Neither the CNIL (ke-neel) judgement, nor the original Right to be Forgotten ruling, are attacks on the US first amendment and free expression in the US.|
The last paragraph of their press release reads:
Finally, contrary to what Google has stated, this decision does not show any willingness on the part of the CNIL to apply French law extraterritorially. It simply requests full observance of European legislation by non European players offering their services in Europe.
In other words, the CNIL is asking Google to ensure that the RTBF is made effective within the EU.
This is 'geo-blocking' by any other name and completely familiar to Google - for example if Youtube has agreed to block access in Europe to some Hollywood content hey have a deal for in the US, then no effort by me to switch to the US YouTube site will magically give me access. (And Google may well be smart enough to block VPNs too!)
|Berke wrote in to say installment plans for phones in Turkey was so widespread that it caused a credit bubble and there are no installments allowed for smartphone purchases for the last two years there.|
Why does Berke bring this up? “at one point, consumerism made purchasing things extremely easily, and because of Turks' social competitiveness, most people's priority purchase quickly became smartphones, where they can IM and follow each other etc.
Combine this with the Streisand effect, and power of "word of mouth", it seems no longer to be that difficult to see why social apps are as popular as they are in Turkey. I'm not too sure about the smartphone trends in other countries, but in Turkey with a population of 70+ million and an abundance of smartphones, it's only natural to see some periscopes sprouting up from the fertile soils of this land.
