Legitmix finds Legal Loophole for Remix Sales

Legitmix, a Brooklyn-based company, thinks it’s found a legal way for remix artists to sell their wares. The company spent a million dollars building and developing an algorithm that has allowed it to create an online store where remix artists can sell their remixes and retain 70% of the total sale.

The algorithm works by not allowing people to download remixes of songs they don’t already own. If you try to download a remix for a song that isn’t on your hard drive, it’ll redirect you to iTunes to buy the song in question. Most songs cost $2.29 and another dollar for the remix.

Chrome OS Beta Update

Did you know there was a Chrome OS? I didn’t, but apparently some anti-establishment people out there are choosing to forgo Windows, Mac and Linux-based operating systems in favor of Chrome OS. The operating system is currently in beta and has recently received a major update.

All you Chrome OS users out there – yes, both of you – will now get to enjoy new features like the new “immersive” full screen mode, UI scaling, and wallpaper sync. There’s also a smarter app launcher in the new update. All you Google lovers looking for the full update list will need to follow the source link to find it.

Speed Enforcement Drones?!

People in the San Francisco area started freaking out when official-looking signs depicting a drone firing a missile stating “speed enforced by drones” started cropping up all over Bay Area highways. However, a local news station, and many more since, has reported that these signs are indeed fake and being removed by the California Highway Patrol, also known as the CHP.

The CHP confirmed that the signs were professionally made with the same materials official road signs are made out of. One even went so far as to use tamper-resistant bolts! Authorities still don’t know who’s behind the prank.

Are Electronics taking Yoga?

No, they’re not, but electronics are starting to become quite stretchy. Researchers at the University of Michigan have discovered that nanoparticles and elastic components can be combined to make conductors that stretch.

This means bendable displays, batteries, medical implants that move with the body instead of pressing up against it, and much more. This could actually lead to the creation of paper thin displays and multimedia magazines and newspapers you can hold in your hands!

Of course, we’re still a long ways from that.

MelaFind in the Developmental Stages

Melanoma, for those who may not know, is a form of skin cancer that is often discovered via cancers moles and skin legions that look like nothing out of the ordinary to the untrained eye. More than nine thousand Americans die each year to skin cancer; many because they didn’t know they had skin cancer until it was too late.

MelaFind is a device created by Mela Sciences to help dermatologists decide whether a mole is cancerous or not. Cancerous moles, if caught in time, can be biopsied before the patient ever actually develops skin cancer.

Sounds like a life saving device right? Well there’s a bit more to it.
