This Was the Tech My Dad Banned in Our House When I Was a Kid

Where technology was concerned, my dad liked things that were cheap. He liked things that did what they supposed to do. And he didn’t like being hassled. Anything else, and he’d excommunicate an entire company it forever, even if the quality improved down the road. His victims were marked by derisive nicknames: Internet Exploder; Packard-Hell; America Offline. The man was fiercely stuck in his ways, and his frustrating quirks of consumption became the rule of law for our household growing up.

You see, my dad was a hardware engineer. He didn’t talk much about the work he did, which I think involved designing circuit boards and working on EMVs—those chips we all have in our debit and credit cards. But his real passion was computers: specifically, Windows-based computers. Gadgets have since become my passion, as well as the

    Android Earthquake Features

    Google is going to automatically send earthquake early warning alerts to Android users in California.

    Google is collaborating with the USGS and its Shake Alert System, which uses signals from more than 700 seismometers across California.

    Follow Tech Reporter Rich DeMuro on Instagram for more tech news, tips and gadgets!

    It sounds like the alerts will be similar to Amber alerts and delivered to phones by default unless you disable them. There will be no extra apps necessary to install.

    Additionally, Google is turning every Android phone into a mini earthquake detector using the sensors in phones from around the world to create their own crowdsourced data network.

    “Having many Android phones out there that means that there’s a lot of chances of detecting an earthquake pretty early on as it’s just starting and then be able to warn people further away, ‘hey, this way is coming

    CityLab Daily: Wearable Tech Enters the Fight Against Covid-19

    Healthy surveillance: Wearable technologies like Fitbits show promise for detecting subtle early signs of Covid-19 infection and limiting asymptomatic spread. These devices monitor heart rate, sleep levels and physical activity patterns, and changes could help researchers identify infections before people present symptoms. But problems abound with real-world applications, Laura Bliss reports.

    For one, most programs using the technology require participants to own their own devices, pricing out those who can’t afford a $50 to $400 gadget. There are also privacy concerns, particularly for studies in Black communities. Programs that strap tracking devices to the wrists of Black people recall an odious history of racist experimentation in the U.S. Now, proponents of the wearable-technology solution are working with community health workers to try to assuage some concerns among Black Americans and conduct studies responsibly. Today on CityLab: Wearable Tech Enters the Fight Against Covid-19
