A new app wants to be Pandora for streaming video. Does anyone want that?
New IOS app N3TWORK, available in Apple’s app store today, aims, in many ways, to be the streaming video version of the popular music service Pandora, which tries to guess other music you might like, based on music you already like. N3twork is available on iPhone and iPad, and you can stream it to your television through AppleTV. […] The big question here is if anyone will want to watch videos this way. Yes, finding great stuff to watch online is a problem people theoretically could have, but is it one that people worry about all of the time? Pandora was ahead of its time, to be sure, but it was clear even early on that it would eventually work, because having music on in the background is something people frequently do. But how often do people just stream videos in the background while doing other things? - Todd VanDerWerff,Vox

Introducing Hyperlapse from Instagram
Since launching nearly four years ago, it has always been a priority to bring the Instagram community simple yet powerful tools that let people capture moments and express their creativity. Today, we’re excited to announce Hyperlapse from Instagram, a new app to capture high-quality time lapse videos even while in motion.
Traditionally, time lapse videos depend on holding your phone or camera still while you film. Hyperlapse from Instagram features built-in stabilization technology that lets you create moving, handheld time lapses that result in a cinematic look, quality and feel—a feat that has previously only been possible with expensive equipment.
We designed Hyperlapse to be as simple as possible. You don’t need an account to create a hyperlapse. Instead, you open up straight to the camera. Tap once to begin recording and tap again to stop. Choose a playback speed that you like between 1x-12x and tap the green check mark to save it to your camera roll. You can share your video on Instagram easily from there.
From documenting your whole commute in seconds or the preparation of your dinner from start to finish to capturing an entire sunset as it unfolds, we’re thrilled about the creative possibilities Hyperlapse unlocks. We can’t wait to see what you’ll create.

Hyperlapse from Instagram is available today for iOS devices in Apple’s App Store. It is currently only available for iOS.
Sucks to be the earth
Whether we’re reading articles or emails or tweets, most of us probably spend more time reading online than paging through physical books. If you wear glasses, there’s a good chance you’re putting them on to stare at a screen. But what if a digital display could take care of vision correction on its own?
