Developer gets Windows 95 running on an Apple Watch

The Apple Watch may admittedly feel a big sluggish at times, but the device’s internals – 520 MHz processor, 512 MB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage – are more impressive than what many old PCs were running back in the early to mid 90s. That being the case, developer Nick Lee recently took it upon himself to see if he could get Microsoft’s seminal Windows release – Windows 95 – up and running on the Apple Watch.

Google is testing a wild new feature that allows brands to take over search results

Google is testing a wild new feature that allows brands to take over search results

In an effort to further bolster its already successful advertising business, Google is currently experimenting with a new initiative that promises to give companies and marketers unprecedented control the search results stemming from specific queries. According to the Wall Street Journal, Google’s new program “allows marketers, media companies, politicians and other organizations [to] publish content directly to Google and have it appear instantly in search results.”

In one example of the new advertising feature in action, ABC yesterday paid Google for the right to effectively take over the search results page when a user typed in “Jimmy Kimmel.” In that scenario, a normal page of search results was replaced with an ABC created “carousel” that featured handpicked posts and videos that users could browse through. At this point it remains unclear if the promotion appeared before every user who typed in the query or if ABC was perhaps able to target certain geographic locations or even demographics.

Uber Pricing

Uber will hit you with a penalty if you get to your ride 3 minutes late

Uber will hit you with a penalty if you get to your ride 3 minutes late

The days of ordering an Uber and showing up outside to meet your driver whenever you feel like it may soon be a vestige of the past.  The popular ride-sharing service is reportedly planning to start charging riders a fee when they show up more than 2 minutes late to a scheduled pick-up.

Originally reported by TechCrunch, Uber has already begun implementing its new penalty scheme across a number of cities, including New York City, New Jersey and Dallas. The way it operates is rather simple: if a driver is forced to wait more than two minutes, the rider who ordered the Uber will have Uber’s standard per-minute rate added onto their final bill for each minute after the two-minute mark.
