How to change the default translation language on Chrome

Welcome to TNW Basics, a collection of tips, guides, and advice on how to easily get the most out of your gadgets, apps, and other stuff. I’m usually a Mac user, but since I’m currently testing the Razer Blade laptop, I’ve been forced to temporarily switch to Windows. Somehow, Chrome for Windows figured out my mother tongue is Bulgarian, and automatically set the browser’s default translation language to Bulgarian — even though I prefer to translate pages to English. Fortunately, changing the default translation language is pretty simple. Here’s how to do it: Once you open any page in a foreign language,…

Just putting it out there: iLove iTunes

In this column, “Just putting this out there…,” we write about the odd ways we engage with tech and the unpopular opinions we form about it. You can read the rest of the articles in this series here. One day very soon, iTunes will be murdered. And I mean murdered. Tim Cook is gonna get in his dusty truck, and drive to the countryside with iTunes sitting quietly in the back. He’ll coax the beloved piece of software out onto a grass-covered bank, and get it to kneel. “Oh look,” Tim Cook will say softly to iTunes, “there are some rabbits over…

Ancestors is a video game that reveals how the first humans evolved

As an academic scientist who researches human evolution, I was surprised to receive an email one day from Patrice Désilets, a top computer game designer responsible for the first two Assassin’s Creed games. He was working on a new game based on our early evolution in Africa, he said, and was using my book The Cradle of Humanity as one of the key reference texts. Would I like to be involved? Patrice invited my family to Montreal in early 2018 to play and comment on an early beta version. He was greatly amused that my youngest daughter is a true…

Why apps should enhance real-world experiences, not replace them

Most mobile apps seek to be the center of attention. They are created by owners and product managers who obsess over extending as many user sessions as possible. Unfortunately, they don’t place a high consideration on the impacts of their customers’ well-being. Meanwhile, many users are increasingly aware of how much time they are spending staring and tapping at their favorite apps.

How machine learning in policing could fuel racial discrimination

The debate over the police using machine learning is intensifying – it is considered in some quarters as controversial as stop and search. Stop and search is one of the most contentious areas of how the police interact with the public. It has been heavily criticized for being discriminatory towards black and minority ethnic groups, and for having marginal effects on reducing crime. In the same way, the police use of machine learning algorithms has been condemned by human rights groups who claim such programs encourage racial profiling and discrimination along with threatening privacy and freedom of expression.
