We’re all pretty familiar with Twitter’s 140 characters—and of course, a photo is always an eye-catching addition. But what if your Twitter audience could sign up for your email list without ever leaving Twitter, or directly download your new app straight from a tweet? What if a photo and article summary could travel alongside every post of your content? And what if you could do all of this for free, right now? Twitter cards offer all this potential and more. In this post, we’ll…

Rand Paul: Scene in Ferguson Resembles “War More Than Traditional Police Action”

Source: reason.com – Thursday, August 14, 2014
Here's Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) responding to the ongoing strife in Ferguson, Missouri following the police shooting of Michael Brown. In an op-ed for Time , he writes : Anyone who thinks that race does not skew the application of criminal justice in this country is just not paying close enough attention. And the root of the problem is big government. The shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown is an awful tragedy that continues to send shockwaves through the community of Ferguson, Missouri and across the nation. If I had been told to get out of the street as a teenager, there would have been a distinct possibility that I might have smarted off. But, I wouldn’t have expected to be shot. The outrage in Ferguson is understandable—though there is never an excuse for rioting or looting. There is a legitimate role for the police to keep the peace, but there should be a difference between a police response and a military response. The images and scenes we continue to see in Ferguson resemble war more than traditional police action. Paul goes on to say that "there is a systemic problem with today's law enforcement" and that local police have been militarized thanks to the use of "federal dollars to help municipal governments build what are essentially small armies—where police departments compete to acquire military gear that goes far beyond what most of Americans think of as law enforcement."

Foursquare’s Swarm iOS app gets mayor leaderboards for every check-in, easier sharing and more

Foursquare today released an update to its Swarm app for iOS that now shows mayor leaderboards amongst your friends on every check-in. The app also now includes easier sharing to Facebook and Twitter, faster and more accurate check-ins, and photos from venues. Swarm launched in May in an effort by Foursquare to splinter off check-ins into a standalone app and reserve the main Foursquare app for location discovery. The company also moved to distance itself from the gamification features for which it had become known. For instance, mayorships are now competed within circles of friends, rather than service-wide.      …

Google Chromecast to go on sale in “many more countries” in a few weeks

174349564 520x245 Google Chromecast to go on sale in many more countries in a few weeks

Google has some good news for those of you outside the US: Chromecast is coming to “many more countries” in the next few weeks. The announcement came from an SXSW keynote by Sundar Pichai, the company’s SVP of Androids, Apps and Chrome.

Last month, reports emerged that Chromecast would soon arrive in the UK and Australia. Google first released the HDMI dongle last July, before opening the device up to developers with an SDK in February.

While Pichai wouldn’t reveal specific sales figures for the Chromecast, he did note that customers have bought “millions” of units and sales continue to grow rapidly.

At $ 35, Chromecast is a phenomenal deal, but new features and services have come to it slowly over the past few months. Now that the device has an SDK and is expanding internationally, we can hopefully expect a quicker pace for improvements to the platform.

Pichai also revealed during his talk that an Android SDK for wearable devices is coming in two weeks’ time.

You can keep up with all of our SXSW coverage on our event page.
