Parents say it’s a form of digital kidnapping. Instagram isn’t sure what to say.
The iPhone 6 is already in the palms of many of the people reading this right now, who are following these words on a satisfyingly large screen, setting off a thin and lightweight body almost like air in the hands. The new phone is a technological marvel—and, as this GIF makes clear, it’s merely the latest in the evolution of a technological marvel that began in the summer of 2007.
Anki, a robotics and artificial intelligence company, has its sights set on big ideas in robotics, but it still sees the benefits in starting small. Really small.

In light of some disconcerting news recently involving cyber creeps picking through our private accounts, this Friday we’re offering you a hack that will not only make your accounts a little more secure, but hopefully will put your minds somewhat at ease. Should we call this edition the no-hack hack?
One of the best ways to step up your online security is by activating two-step authentication on your private accounts. Both Google and iCloud make this process available, and although many begrudge the onus placed on customers to be proactive about their security, making this kind of security a default is still a thing of the future, so it’s up to us as consumers to take an active role in our privacy.
