GUEST: This is a short warning to entrepreneurs. Founders often start a company based on their passion for something. That’s fine as long as they are also solving a problem or otherwise addressing the needs of a clearly defined target market. The advice that is dispensed too often these days is to pursue your passion, do something you love. That’s all well and good as long as your passion intersects with a problem that customers will pay you to solve. But don’t start a business for the sole purpose of pursuing something you’re passionate about. That’s called a hobby.  Hobbies are great, but don’t pitch me on investing in yours. Passion can cloud your judgment. Listen to the market. If the market is telling you to pursue option A, but you’re more passionate about option B, pursue option A. If the market is not buying what you’re selling, it’s time to pivot. Or shut the company. Don’t continue to pursue something just because you love doing it. That’s a sure-fire way to go out of b [...]

Washington University computer science graduate Nathan Gitter has released Rainbrow, an eyebrow-controlled arcade game for iPhone X. The simple game requires players to use their eyebrows to move an emoji face up and down the screen to collect stars, worth one point each, while avoiding other emoji obstacles such as cars, basketballs, and ducks. Simply raise your eyebrows to move the emoji up, frown to move the emoji down, or make a neutral expression and the emoji stays still. Note that if you raise your eyebrows, and keep them raised, the emoji will continue to move in an upwards direction, and vice verse when maintaining a frowning expression. While there are no levels, the game gets increasingly difficult as more obstacles appear. The goal is simply to get the highest score possible, but players can only compete against themselves right now. Gitter told us that he plans to integrate Apple's Game Center for multiplayer competition in a future update. Rainbrow is a novel concep [...]

Also, Cherlynn Low explains what you've been missing in Chinese imperial drama YouTube series, and Dan Cooper has (so many) thoughts about Star Trek: Discovery. Empresses in the Palace (AKA Hou Gong Zhen Huan Zhuan) Cherlynn Low Reviews Editor I'll admit - I'm super late to the Empresses in the Palace hype train. That's because I've been far too busy catching up on my 'murican TV. But then I hung out with my best friend Valerie for a week, and she introduced me to the series, which is entirely available on YouTube. And despite my resistance, I was hooked after episode one. Here's the basic premise: Zhen Huan enters the royal harem against her will, after an audition of noble ladies.

Enlarge / A high-altitude nuclear detonation captured on decades-old film at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. (credit: Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory) This week, scientists at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) released another 62 declassified nuclear explosion test videos on the lab’s YouTube channel. These videos follow an earlier batch of nuclear test videos that were released by LLNL in March. The videos depict atmospheric nuclear tests carried out by the US between 1945 and 1962. Often, the detonations were filmed by as many as 50 different cameras at different angles, locations, and frame speeds. Over time, the US military racked up some 10,000 films from 210 tests. The films sat in storage for decades until nuclear physicist Gregg Spriggs was asked to model the effects of nuclear explosions, according to an LLNL press release. Spriggs’ model didn’t correspond to information that was published contemporary with the actual tests in the 50s a [...]

In early December, 9-year-old Mikah Frye decided that instead of getting an Xbox One for Christmas, he'd rather use that $300 to donate blankets to the homeless.
