Computers that need 8in floppy disks as large as your head are still required to communicate with US nuclear forces.A report into the state of the US government, released by congressional investigators, has revealed that the country is spending around $60bn £40.8bn to maintain museum-ready computers, which many do not even know how to operate any more, as their creators retire.We re not even talking the more modern 3.5in floppy disk that millennials might only know as the save icon.We re talking the OG 8in floppy, which was a large floppy square with a magnetic disk inside it.Shockingly, the US Government Accountability Office said: Replacement parts for the system are difficult to find because they are now obsolete.The Pentagon said it was instigating a full replacement of the ancient machines and while the entire upgrade will take longer, the crucial floppy disks should be gone by the end of next year.

Yesterday we learned that starting in September, Netflix will become the exclusive streaming home to all things Disney, Marvel, and Lucasfilm.Being a huge Star Wars nerd, it s easy to get hopeful about seeing The Force Awakens show up on my streaming provider of choice.However, that won t be happening any time soon.And The Force Awakens was just shy of that mark.Starz did lose the rights to broadcast films internationally last year, which means that The Force Awakens will show up on Netflix in Canada.It will likely take quite a large sum of money for them to want to give up the rights to such an iconic film.
Amazon itself followed up with its own Dot and Tap devices in March, and Google unveiled Google Home last week.Now it seems that not only is Apple planning a similar device of its own, but it has been at work on it for some time.The device doesn t yet have a name, but would be powered by an enhanced version of Siri, according to a report from The Information.Siri already features integrations with services from companies like Google and Yelp, but these have been fairly limited.While this could seem like Apple jumping on the bandwagon, Siri has obviously been around since the launch of the iPhone 4S, and The Information s sources say that the company has been working on the device since before the launch of the Amazon Echo.WWDC kicks off next month on June 17, with Apple expected to finally introduce Siri for the Mac, as well as a rumored new, improved user interface for Apple Music.
Today, Amazon's Comixology app announced Comixology Unlimited — an all-you-can-eat buffet of digital comic books for $5.99 per month, so you can binge Netflix-style.At launch, the Comixology Unlimited plan includes the first volumes of popular titles like "The Walking Dead," "Attack on Titan," "Saga," and "Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 8," among many others.There's even a 30-day free trial, so you can try it on your phone or web browser.A Comixology spokesperson tells Business Insider that this is all about helping readers find an entry point into the medium, with a focus on partnering with publishers to fill the service up with first volumes and introductory storylines."We ll be cycling through content periodically.The goal, it seems, is to provide a cheap way to give readers a taste of the next big thing in comics, and then reel them in to pay for the next books in the series.No matter how you slice it, this is a big huge deal.Absent from the list of participating publishers are Marvel and DC Comics, the two biggest names in comic books: Marvel has its own, separate Digital Unlimited app for $10/month; DC has yet to launch this kind of binge-reading plan.Still, while big-name superheroes like Spider-Man and Batman aren't included in this plan, Comixology Unlimited includes access to lots of independent titles that are more than worth your time.Just off the top of my head, "Locke and Key," "Lumberjanes," and "The Wicked and the Divine" are all incredible, and they're all included in the plan.Disclosure: Jeff Bezos is an investor in Business Insider through his personal investment company Bezos Expeditions.NOW WATCH: Become a comic book character in a few easy stepsLoading video...
Indeed, in 2013, the number of mobile messages sent via OTT apps exceeded SMS for the first time.There are other ways to send multimedia messages whilst keeping the costs at bay, said the network.Well it hopes to monetise this appetite for data by moving customers onto more expensive tariffs with bigger data allowances.This is its exact rationale behind Feel at Home , its roaming offer which lets its customers use their UK allowances in a number of countries.While this obviously eats into roaming revenue, it does mean customers are more likely to use their phone abroad rather than switch it off or use free Wi-Fi networks.For the operator that says its network is built for data, it makes perfect sense.
Last year, Tesla took aim at one of its key markets: the affluent Hamptons, a strip of town stretched out across the coast of Long Island's South Fork, long a vacation destination for New York City's moneyed elites.The 2015 edition was a "pop-up" store.Adorned with Tesla branding and built from shipping containers, it welcomed potential customers in Southampton for five weeks.The concept was so successful that Tesla is opening a fully blown store in 2016, located in East Hampton Tesla is also opening a vacationer-oriented store in Massachusetts' Cape Cod .But opening in this location comes with inherent risk because many people leave after the summer months.Automotive New reported that the new store would experience a major slackening off in business during the non-summer months, but that Tesla assumes interest from Memorial Day to Labor Day will be strong enough to make the effort pay off.Last year, Tesla offered test drives in the Model S sedan, but wasn't able to sell anyone a car.In New York, Tesla can sell cars to consumers on only a limited basis, using its direct-sales model.Interested buyers can go online after sampling a vehicle and arrange to buy, taking delivery at a later date.The electric-car maker now has an additional vehicle to sell.Last fall, after the Hamptons pop-up location closed, Tesla launched its Model X SUV.SUVs are extremely popular in the Hamptons, where wealthy families journey from New York City to their summer homes.The company is guiding to 80-90,000 deliveries in 2016, and CEO Elon Musk has set an ambitious, accelerated 2018 target of 500,000 vehicle deliveries.The Tesla store in the Hamptons will join a new location in Brooklyn's Red Hook neighborhood that opening earlier this year.NOW WATCH: Here s Tesla s massive plan to meet the demand for 375,000 Model 3 preordersLoading video...

Firefox OS4K detailHD & SD sourcesFile handlingFreeview Play appHDR lacks sparkleTight viewing angleSome light leakageToo small for 4KThere's no doubt about it, 4K looks its best on a 60-inch TV.No, that distinction goes to the inclusion of high dynamic range HDR .That question has obviously been asked, and answered, by Panasonic's TV designers because they've fenced-off what they consider the unpopular ones.Gravity upscaled from a regular Blu-ray disc looks sharp and clean with both True Cinema and Cinema presets engaged, while 720p fare from HD channels on Freeview HD are highly watchable.The latter is extensive: a USB stick hosting all kinds of digital files, from 4K video files in the TS, MP4 and MKV formats to a load of AVI, WMV and other video files all played without a hiccup.Indeed, with its sleek design carrying it through despite the HDR confusion.

Xiaomi has something in the works that could change all that, and it's turning up sooner than you think.After the Xiaomi drone app leaked recently, and what looks like patents for an unmanned aerial vehicle UAV turned up online, Xiaomi today released a teaser for what could be the upcoming Mi drone.The invite arrived in inboxes right after the Chinese tech giant revealed its new 4K Mi Box streaming media player at Google I/O.Thanks to the earlier leak, we know the smartphone companion app is ready to go, and seeing as the teaser went out in Chinese, expect it to be launched there first.Most drone enthusiasts will be keen on knowing how competitively priced Xiaomi will be able to be, but with 4K video recording, it's unlikely to be super-cheap.Still, if Xiaomi does manage to keep within affordable limits this might be a drone worth saving up for.
If imitation truly is the sincerest form of flattery, then Google Home should make Amazon turn completely and utterly crimson with embarrassment.Google Home, for those that missed Sundar Pichai's opening keynote at Google I/O, is a voice-activated product that brings the Google assistant to any room in your house via a Wi-Fi-connected speaker.All questions need to be prefaced by a keyword – OK, Google in this case – which causes the speaker to start listening.During the opening keynote of Google's I/O Developer Conference, Mario Queiroz, vice president of product management at Google said, "Google Home is a Wi-Fi speaker that streams music directly from the cloud so you get the highest quality playback.Google CastLet's focus for a minute on those last two words: Google Cast.Any of the above might be the next big smart home device maker and, thanks to those pre-existing relationships, Google is primed to take advantage of whoever comes out on top.

Slated for a late summer release, key new features in Android N include split-screen mode, so more than one app can be run simultaneously, or picture-in-picture mode so you can watch a video on the corner of the screen while browsing the web or checking email.Some of these features are already available on some handsets today but bringing them to the core of the Android experience means they can be unified and extended across all phones running the operating system.A new software JIT compiler will make app installs 75% faster and the compiled code size will be reduced by 50%, according to Google.As good as this sounds, unfortunately has nothing to do or bound to help with Android's fragmentation issue and slow updates from carriers and manufacturers.Instead of acting like a search box that can interpret your voice commands, the new Assistant works on a more conversational mode and can infere from context, not unlike Amazon's Alexa and Microsoft's Cortana.As with all beta releases, we only recommend these to early adopters and tinkerers that can live with some bugs.
