Silk Road founder begs judge to ‘please leave me my old age’ ahead of sentencing

By about 10 hours ago.

If federal prosecutors have their way, Ross Ulbricht, the mastermind behind Silk Road, will be sentenced to an extremely long prison term: we’re talking 20 years at the very minimum.

According to the New York Times, the prosecution handling the case has opted not to seek a life sentence for Ulbricht, but will instead try to convince the presiding judge that Ulbricht deserves a sentence that is “substantially above the mandatory minimum of 20 years.” Three months ago, a jury convicted the 30-year old Ulbricht on seven criminal counts, including narcotics trafficking and money laundering.

Tests claim HTC One M9’s camera is worse than three-year-old iPhone 4S, Galaxy S III

By on May 27, 2015 at 7:00 PM.

The HTC One M9 is already looking like a disaster for HTC, which was seemingly caught off guard by all the major improvements that Samsung made with its Galaxy S6 line of smartphones. One of the biggest disappointments with the One M9 has been its camera, which reviewers have claimed is still miles behind flagship devices such as the iPhone 6, the Galaxy S6 and the LG G4. However, Forbes points us to a new study from the imaging experts at DxOMark showing that the One M9’s camera doesn’t even match the cameras of flagship phones released more than three years ago.

It will soon be impossible for BlackBerry to lose more market share

Why the iPhone is more important to Google than Android

By on May 27, 2015 at 5:00 PM.

Though Google these days has its hand in everything, from robotics to advanced AI, the company’s billions by and large continue to come exclusively from advertising. More to the point, 90% of the $66 billion Google generated in revenue in 2014 came directly from advertising-related ventures

Not surprisingly, an increasingly important part of Google’s advertising machine is mobile search. In 2014 alone, 18% of Google’s ad revenue, or about $11.8 billion, came from searches done on mobile devices.
