The company is now showing users tweets from accounts they don’t follow. That’s a bigger deal than it seems.

When will Twitter no longer be Twitter?

This week, the company tested a change to its core product that could alter the service in a small but important way. According to Mashable, Twitter is altering the timeline of a small number of users, so that they see tweets from accounts they don’t follow.

Right now, users only see tweets for three reasons: They’re from an account that user follows; they were retweeted by an account that user follows; or they’re an ad. Now, a user might see tweets from an account that someone whom they follow follows, or a tweet that someone they follow favorited.

I can independently confirm this news because I am one of the users they’re testing on. Earlier this week, I was flicking through my Twitter timeline and found something odd: a tweet from a user I’d never seen before. A small line of text above the tweet informed me that it was there because a friend of mine favorited it.

This new feature seems a big deal, because it alters the central conceit of Twitter. Right now, users only only see tweets from users you follow. This is seemingly the feature that made Twitter Twitter. As Mashable found, users already appear annoyed to be seeing tweets of ambiguous origin.

WTF @twitter, why am I seeing tweets from accounts that I don’t follow but are followed by someone whom I follow?— aleefbaypay (@aleefbaypay) August 3, 2014

But users already see tweets from users they don’t follow. These tweets are ads. Twitter already accepts money to show users tweets from brands and personalities that they don’t follow, and while this method of display-ads-for-Twitter may frustrate users, but it’s the path the company has chosen.

No, this feature strikes me as a big deal because it breaks something that may seem less pressing: the fave. As The Atlantic has previously documented, users hit the fave button for many reasons. A fave can mean “I agree,” “This made me laugh,” or “good chat.” Often, the only two users aware of a fave are the faver and the favee.

There have long been ways to see other user’s faves. The Discover tab in the company’s official mobile app, for instance, lists all the faves a certain user has made that day. But by and large, other people’s faves didn’t just pop up on your screen.

By transforming what a fave does, this feature fundamentally changes what a fave is. Users will have to adjust, and that process will exact communal cos …

Picture hanging strips eliminate the need to put holes in walls with nails, pushpins or screws. You can find these strips in several sizes including small, medium and large, to accommodate many frames ranging from 4 x 6 inches to 24 x 36 inches. They work on a variety of surfaces, including textured walls, and hold items that weigh up to 8 pounds, making them ideal for heavier decorative elements. Specialty items such as easel back strips have spacers so you can add reach to accommodate the increased depth of the frame. Canvas hangers apply directly to the wall and have an inclined design and a sawtooth ridge that provides extra grip to prevent the canvas from falling.
Use super-narrow spaces – Storage for all those essential mops, brooms and brushes does not need to be wide: a space as narrow as 20cm can be enough. Exploit forgotten corners, too. A narrow space down the side of a tall cupboard or fridge can become accessible and useful if you install pull-out storage, like this sliding set of hooks.

Received condition: Overall, all the pieces were in very good condition. Packaging was solid and the cardboard strength was good enough to keep most external protrusions to a minimum. The only damage was a slight dent into the beveled edge of one of the front doors. But it didn’t mar the paint so no touch-up was necessary. Assembly proceeded.

The interface DIN 69893 has become the new standard for machining centres. The holder is clamped via its taper with flange contact surface. By doing so, a highly accurate centring and fixed axial position of the holder in the spindle is granted with a high repetitive accuracy when exchanging the tools. In the DIN 69893-1 HSK-A interface design an additional torque transmission takes place at the taper shank with drive keys. DIN 69893 HSK-A/HSK-E/HSK-F is mainly used in high-speed machining.

Brittany Wenger is changing the game when it comes to cancer detection technology — and, at 19, she’s just getting started.

Brittany Wenger is one seriously smart cookie. In 2012, the then-17-year-old submitted her artificial brain technology — which assesses tissue samples for breast cancer — to the Google Science Fair and walked away with the grand prize. It was no wonder: Her invention, which uses a type of computer program called neural networks, can identify complex data patterns and make breast cancer detection calls with 99 percent accuracy. But she’s not stopping there: Brittany hopes to help wipe out cancer completely.

Since she took home the gold two years ago, she’s been named one of Time’s 30 Under 30, given a truly inspiring TED Talk, and launched her app, Cloud4Cancer, which allows doctors to enter their own data and fuel continued cancer research. And did we mention she’s also holding down a full course load at Duke University? Um, yeah.

We recently chatted with Brittany about how she got started, her challenges along the way, and how she balances being a college student with breaking the barriers of cancer diagnostics.

How did you get into computer programming?

When I was in 7th grade I took an elective class on futuristic thinking. When we were assigned our final paper, I decided to write mine on technology of the future. The moment I started researching artificial intelligence and its transcendence into human knowledge, I was inspired. I went out and bought a coding textbook, and taught myself how to code. I remember one of the first projects that I ever worked on was an artificial neural network that taught people how to play soccer.

You’re a self-taught coder who went on to create a potentially game-changing cancer detection tool. How did that happen?

Well, it definitely didn’t happen overnight. I spent over five years working with neural networks, starting with an entire year of research to try and recognize patterns and connect breast cancer to artificial intelligence. I faced a lot of roadblocks along the way, as this was a very complicated program with no predefined solution. I went through thousands of pages of coding and data that was available through public domains, and performed over 7.6 million test trials. I two failed projects before finally succeeding on my third attempt, taking what didn’t work the …

Apple’s mobile operating system is once again dominating Google’s operating system when it comes to online shopping.

Adobe, which is tracking online shopping, reports the following: iOS users drove four times as much mobile sales revenue as Android users, 79 and 21 percent respectively.

IBM’s data produced similar findings:

iOS vs. Android: iOS once again led the way in mobile shopping this holiday season, outpacing Android across three key metrics on Black Friday:

Average Order Value: iOS users averaged $121.86 per order compared to $98.07 for Android users, a difference 24.3 percent.•
Online Traffic:
iOS traffic accounted for 34.2 percent of total online traffic, more than double that of Android, which drove 15 percent of all online traffic.•
Online Sales:
iOS sales accounted for 21.9 percent of total online sales, nearly quadruple that of Android, which drove 5.8 percent of all online sales.

This is important for a few reasons.

For years, people have talked about Apple’s tiny market share when it comes to the phone market. Globally, Apple has 12% of the smartphone market, according to Gartner. Android has 82%. In the US, Apple has 42% of the market, and Android has 52%, according to comScore.

Market share is important because typically in tech, it’s winner-take-all. The more people you have using your platform, the better you will do.

In theory, the more people use Android, the more developers and publishers will tailor their websites and their apps to Android. In theory, Apple’s iPhone will be a second class citizen with second class apps. Eventually people will bail on the iPhone if it’s offering a second class experience.

But, in practice, Android’s market share advantage means nothing because iOS is more popular when it comes to usage, as demonstrated by these shopping data points. If you’re making an app or a website, you want it to work best on iOS because that is where the most lucrative customers are. So, in practice, Apple gets the best apps and the best web experience because that’s what makes sense for companies and developers.

You could argue that this isn’t indicative of usage, but merely demonstrates that iOS users have more money to burn. If that’s the case, it’s good for iOS, too. People with money to burn are an attractive cohort of users for developers and companies.
This cabinet was very easy to assemble – it didn’t have a zillion parts that were confusing from the get-go. I was also impressed because it was very sturdy. It’s perfect in my daughter’s small utility area, sitting right next to her small stackable washer/dryer – it’s a narrow room, so the 16-inch width was just perfect! I also liked the fact that the hinges could be placed on either side (they are European-style hinges, so they are on the inside, adjustable, and easy to install) so you could have the door open in the direction you want. She was able to put her vacuum and a small trash receptacle inside, and all her laundry supplies on the one shelf we installed in the lowest position in the cabinet top portion. The ONLY thing to be aware of is that the item in HEAVY (70lb box) so be careful! Also, try to assemble close to where you will want it due to the weight (unless you have some good strong help!). Very satisfied, and a good price (and FREE SHIPPING!) through walmart.com!
I know this product is higher than the others, but well worth it. I was very pleased of the outcome. The bottom line is you get what you pay for. I took my time putting it together, because they used images instead of stickers of what goes where. After you are finished, your doors might be crooked slightly. Read the manual carefully, there are 6-way adjustments on the hinges. I got mine perfect before my wife got home to see it. I also got the 32 inch wall cabinet topper to fit on top of it. It comes with 2 metal dowels that fit right on top of the standing cabinet that has predrilled holes for it, perfect.
I ordered two of these and got them in this week. I got the time to assemble one of them last night. As I recently built up two other book cases of similar design, I had the tools and recent memories together to make short/quick work of this assembly job.

I’m a little old lady, and was apprehensive about assembling it by myself, but the instructions were clear with every step illustrated, and it went together quickly and tightly. The only difficulty I had was getting the package from the front porch into the kitchen: it was around seven feet long, and VERY HEAVY, partly because it was so well protected from potential damage in transit. I had the help of a small dolly, but a couple of healthy grandsons would have been nice, too.
