夜視功能

在「Incredible low-light camera turns night into day」這邊看到這個示範影片:

軍用品,換算 ISO 可以達到 5M:

The camera was developed for military use, has an effective ISO rating of 5,000,000, and has a comically long name: “X27 Reconnaissance Day/Night high Fidelity true real time low light/low lux color night vision Imaging Security / Multi Purpose camera system”.

Google 在舊金山與洛杉磯開始宅配生鮮食品...

Google Express 延伸業務到生鮮食品上:「Google Launches Fresh-Grocery Deliveries」,與生鮮業者合作。

Google said it would begin delivering produce, meat, eggs and other perishable goods on Wednesday in parts of San Francisco and Los Angeles. The service is part of Google Express, which partners with retailers in some U.S. cities to deliver goods to consumers within hours of an order.

而且是當日配送:

Alphabet Inc.'s Google is expanding its same-day delivery service to fresh groceries, the latest example of the tech titan’s increasing push into consumers’ daily lives.

我以為會掛在 Alphabet 下做,而不是在 Google 下做...

RSA Conference 2015 禁止 Show Girl

前幾天的消息:「RSA Conference Bans "Booth Babes"」。報導出自於「RSA Conference bans ‘booth babes’」。

規範的文字:

All Expo staff are expected to dress in business and/or business casual attire. Exhibitors should ensure that the attire of al staff they deploy at their booth (whether the exhibitor’s direct employees or their contractors) be considered appropriate in a professional environment. Attire of an overly revealing or suggestive nature is not permitted. Examples of such attire may include but are not restricted to:

  • Tops displaying excessive cleavage;
  • Tank tops, halter tops, camisole tops or tube tops;
  • Miniskirts or minidresses;
  • Shorts;
  • Lycra (or other Second-Skin) bodysuits;
  • Objectionable or offensive costumes.

These guidelines are applicable to all booth staff, regardless of gender, and will be strictly enforced. We reserve the right to request that individual booth staff change their attire or leave the premises immediately if we feel their appearance might be offensive to other exhibitors or attendees.

讓我想起 2009 年 Yahoo! 辦的 Taiwan Open Hack Day:「Yahoo Sorry About Lap Dancers at Hack Day in Taiwan–So What's the Excuse for Last Year's Go-Go Girls?」。

World IPv6 Day

預定在 6/8 舉辦的 World IPv6 Day 快要到了,因為是以 UTC 時間來算,所以換算成台灣的時間,是早上八點開始。在「Participating websites」有列出參與的站台以及會使用的 domain (也就是直接加上 AAAA record)。

可以看到 Google 是拿 www.google.com 以及 www.youtube.com 出來參戰,Facebook 也會將 www.facebook.com 參與。

這樣已經很大沒錯,但另外一個重點是 YouTube 的 video data 本身有沒有打算要上這一波的測試。

另外剛剛發現 HiNet 已經建立了自己的 192.88.99.1 anycast address 負責 6to4 (nopa.tw/45),而 TWGate 則是透過香港的 Hurricane Electric 轉。

另外兩家大的 ISP 就不提了,都是 Hurricane Electric 在美西的點...
