This is a good approximation of the sound I hear when I watch the gif:

Look at this GIF. There’s no sound, but most people who see it hear a “thudding” in their head each time the bouncing structure hits the ground. Why?
This illusion is an example of synesthesia, or when the senses — like hearing and sight — get crossed in the brain, he explained in an email to The Verge.
Maybe I missed it, but it seemed to me that neither the article nor the video explained what about the change caused the AI to see the turtle as a rifle.-Deozaan (November 07, 2017, 04:05 PM)
Researcher: ‘We Should Be Worried’ This Computer Thought a Turtle Was a Gun
By manipulating a few pixels in an image, you can trick a neural network—even one that's great at recognizing cats, and is trained on hundreds or thousands of images of felines—into thinking that it's looking at something completely different.
Wi-fi security flaw 'puts devices at risk of hacks'
The wi-fi connections of businesses and homes around the world are at risk, according to researchers who have revealed a major flaw dubbed Krack.
If you look at “gaming” keyboards, a lot of them sell for $100 or more on the promise that they’re fast.
Despite all of these claims, I can only find one person who’s publicly benchmarked keyboard latency and they only tested two keyboards. In general, my belief is that if someone makes performance claims without benchmarks, the claims probably aren’t true, just like how code that isn’t tested (or otherwise verified) should be assumed broken.
A year ago, if you’d asked me if I was going to build a custom setup to measure keyboard latency, I would have said that’s silly, and yet here I am, measuring keyboard latency with a logic analyzer.

Is there a reliable way for consumers to defend against this? I've taken to searching more than one search engine, but this is a pain. Is there a reliable service that searches a lot of search engines and collates the results, so this becomes obvious?-wraith808 (August 22, 2017, 12:38 PM)
this may seem pretty esoteric, but it is difficult to explain anyways, and I want to make y'all work a bit ;-)

If that is entertaining to you, then you should try the 'Cards against Humanity' card game...with a set of good friends, of course. The time I played that, I found it to be more fun than I cared to admit. But I was with a crowd that appreciate the 'a dirty mind is a joy forever' mindset.
Mixing and matching words, concepts and sentences that any sane and/or p.c. person would never dare to combine...shouldn't be that funny.-Shades (August 06, 2017, 10:36 PM)
Since this format seems to be basic to the explorer in windows I am sure I am not the only linux user who would like the kind of functionality that we are discussing-cicerosc (July 16, 2017, 08:03 PM)
Somebody posted about that on here a few days ago. I passed on it- mostly because I get all of this free stuff and never look at it
But it is a good deal if you're going to use it.-wraith808 (July 16, 2017, 08:18 PM)
I think you're not getting the implications. When in the physical store for Barnes & Noble, I sometimes check prices on Amazon. Same in Best Buy, Costco, etc. It's usually using the free wi-fi in the store. This would prevent that while you're in the store and on their wi-fi. I don't see what the use is other than to piss off customers that are currently on your store, however, as you could just turn off your wi-fi connection and use your cell phone's connection instead. But there you go.No, I get the implications just fine, and I believe most folks won't even be aware of what's happening. They'll probably just accept that when in Amazon (or Amazon-owned franchise), you do as your Amazonian Overlords allow, and won't bother turning off Wifi. Further, I believe it is a dual-edged sword; like Deozaan said:

So is this a defensive patent which Amazon will use to keep benefiting from such behavior? So the likes of Walmart and Barnes & Noble can't stop you from checking the price on Amazon?This is a patent, which means that others can't legally use the same tech without negotiating with Amazon. That said, a simple router setting would do the same job, which leaves me scratching my head how... I just...-Deozaan (July 16, 2017, 10:39 PM)

Having long thrived on shoppers checking on their phones to see if a product is cheaper online, Amazon’s “Physical Store Online Shopping Control” patent aims to prevent you doing just that in a Amazon-run real-world store.
A quick repair at a huge corporate lab during a late night shift should not have sent Logan into a hellish landscape fraught with monsters, but it looks like Lady Luck decided to give him the middle finger. Logan would like to give one back.
The Sword Interval is about a world on the verge of a supernatural apocalypse. Most of humanity goes about their daily lives trying to ignore the constant threat of magic and monsters, but a few face these dangers head-on. Fall is one such person.
