    Am I A Robot? Because I Have No Idea What This CAPTCHA Says


    Warner Bros / Via HBOGO

    You're in a desert, walking along in the sand, when all of a sudden you look down and have to solve a CAPTCHA.
    The ubiquitous authentication method is meant to distinguish real live humans from bots trying to overload a form on a website. It is always annoying, but never in my experience has it been genuinely baffling. Until today.

    I got eyeglasses to deal with myopia two years and since then I fear that my overall eyesight has only gotten worse. Today at work I had to authenticate myself to send a message to a company when I saw this.



    Even though my initial thought was that the image showed "exe11i," I wasn't at all sure. I asked my coworkers. While they couldn't agree with each other, they all thought I was wrong.

    One suggested "xevui, " while two others put forward "xevnr" and "exvur" respectively. At best, this showed we all had varying degrees of poor vision that was no match for a nasty CAPTCHA, at worst it confirmed that the majority of us were not human.

    Instead we are like Rachael in Blade Runner, human-seeming androids who had been able to pass simple tests but end up revealing our artificial natures under closer examination.

    We reached no definitive conclusion about the CAPTCHA, but instead were left with a nagging feeling that our apprehension of reality is deficient.

    The consensus was it said "xevur" - I entered that and was rejected. A new CAPTCHA appeared, the old one disappeared forever and we'll never know what the right answer was.

    For what it's worth, even my attempt at the subsequent image failed.





    Finally after a third try, I passed. But that might have just been one machine taking pity on another.

    Priest Reportedly Suspended For Riding A Hoverboard During Mass

    “He will be out of the parish and will spend some time to reflect on this past event,” the diocese of a Philippine church said.
    A priest in the Philippines is in trouble after a video showing him singing a Christmas song while riding a hoverboard during Mass has gone viral.

    Several parishioners are seen cheering and clapping in the video as the priest rolls around the nave like a pro.

    But the Diocese of San Pablo, Laguna, condemned the priest's actions on Tuesday, saying, "That was wrong," according to a report by Rappler, a Philippines-based news website.





    According to a statement from the diocese, the priest, who has not been identified, sang a Christmas song while riding the hoverboard around the church as a way of greeting his parishioners during the Christmas Eve Mass.

    "[The Mass] is the Church's highest form of worship," the diocese said. "Consequently, it is not a personal celebration where one can capriciously introduce something to get the attention of the people."

    Microsoft Wants You To Take Pretty Selfies -- With Your iPhone

    Microsoft Selfie promises to tweak your pics for age, gender, skin tone, and lighting.
    Remember when Microsoft released that age-guessing tool?


    Microsoft

    Well, the company is once again bringing its machine learning techniques and algorithms to bear on our photos, but this time it’s using them to do something that’s actually useful: making selfies look better.

    Microsoft Selfie is an iOS app that promises to subtly optimize selfies, calibrating them for things like “age, gender, skin tone, [and] lighting.” It’s not exactly a novel concept — Chinese smartphone manufacturer Xiaomi offers a similar feature. But it is another example of Microsoft extending its reach beyond Windows as it course-corrects for our increasingly mobile world.

    Meet The New Year’s Resolution That Will Kick Your Butt If You Mess Up



    Like most American men, I dream of a future where I’ll be able to wear skinny jeans, drink fancy coffee and listen to music I don’t quite understand. The only problem is, I love eating so much I can’t quite pull off the jeans part.

    For that reason, I spent the past month working on my New Year’s weight loss resolution in advance, both to get a head start on 2016 and to test out Rise, an app I heard was pretty effective at helping people shed the pounds.

    Rise is a simple but wicked smart tool. You use it to snap photos of all the food you eat and a registered dietician or nutritionist rates each meal and snack with a green (good), yellow (not so good) or red (did you really need to eat five donuts??). When you join the app, you are assigned a dedicated ‘coach,’ so as you post your food the person reviewing it understands your specific eating habits and leaves comments, helping you figure out how to eat right. You can also message your coach with questions and feedback via a dedicated messaging line. The app costs $40 a month on a three month plan.
