This is what's happening inside your camera at 10,000 frames per second - 5:31
The "D" in DSLR does not stand for dark magic. In fact, that snap of the shutter you hear when taking a picture is a wonderful symphony of mechanical engineering at work, and happens so fast that you can't really enjoy it all with the naked eye. Luckily, the Slow Mo Guys have painstakingly chronicled what's happening with the mechanical shutter of a Canon 7D using a very fast (and expensive) Phantom Flex camera, recording various shutter speeds at a mind-boggling 10,000 frames per second....Dropcam CEO leaves Nest; founding VP of technology goes to Twitter - 2:15
Two high-level employees at Nest have departed the company this week, The Verge has learned. Sources say that Nest's vice president of technology Yoky Matsuoka, as well as Greg Duffy who co-founded Dropcam, are no longer with the company. Matsuoka was previously the head of innovation at Google, as well as a professor of computer science and engineering at the University of Washington. She's leaving to join Twitter. Duffy joined Nest when Dropcam was acquired for $555 million last June.
...Magic Leap's futuristic patent art was copied from other artists' designs - 1:16
When Google-backed augmented reality company Magic Leap quietly applied for a patent, it did so with dozens of pages of futuristic (and slightly creepy) scenarios: a social media charm bracelet, a gargoyle bursting out of a box in a store, gamified cucumber chopping...
Wait a second. That last one sounds familiar. Maybe that's because it's a line drawing of a shot from "Sight," a Black Mirror-esque short film about an augmented, sinister future.

Earlier this week, New York Times columnist Farhad Manjoo predicted that Uber's biggest impact on the world would not be in transforming transportation, but in changing the labor market and the way we think about work. He may be right. Uber's explosion is the envy of employers everywhere. And those employers are well aware that Uber became a $40 billion company by operating as if its drivers are not Uber employees.

The Sundance documentary Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck is far from a traditional biopic. Directed by Brett Morgen, the filmmaker behind movies like The Kid Stays in the Picture and the Rolling Stones documentary Crossfire Hurricane, it eschews conventional narrative in an attempt to bring audiences inside the mind of Cobain through his paintings, personal recordings, journals, and some disturbing home video footage. I saw a lot of documentaries at Sundance this year, and Montage of Heck was my...Watch the trailer for Game of Thrones Season 5 - 30/1

With the FCC pretty much laughing off Marriott's request for permission to block guests' access to external Wi-Fi networks, the hotel chain has decided to withdraw its petition in a late attempt to save face. "We thought we were doing the right thing asking the FCC to provide guidance, but the FCC has indicated its opposition," Bruce Hoffmeister, Marriott's chief information officer, says in a statement.

Diversity in tech takes center stage at 'Superwomen Summit' - 6:58
For all its cutting edge innovation and talk of egalitarianism, Silicon Valley remains an industry rife with issues.

A measles outbreak linked to Disneyland continues to spread and while California remains the hardest hit state, health officials in Arizona are on high alert ahead of the Super Bowl.
Authorities have confirmed at least 109 cases, 91 of which are in California, according to a Friday update from the California Department of Public Health. That's up from 78 cases reported on Jan. 23. Seven Arizona residents have been infected, but at least 1,000 people in three counties in the Grand Canyon state...Here's the Super Bowl puppy ad you haven't seen - 5:24

Verizon Won’t Stop Tracking Users, But At Least You Can Opt Out Now - 3:03
The saga of last year's privacy controversy over Verizon’s user-tracking behavior continues on. The latest chapter involves the wireless carrier magnanimously deciding Friday to let subscribers opt out of the program, the New York Times reported.
Not that the idea came purely from the goodness of its heart. As the NYT noted, the decision came less than a day after the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation wrote to Verizon’s chief executive, Lowell C. McAdam, to question his...YouTube Fired Flash, Clearing HTML5's Last Obstacle For World Domination - 30/1
After 10 years, YouTube gave Adobe Flash the heave-ho as its default video player on Tuesday. Instead, the site announced it would default to HTML5 to play its never-ending roster of cat clips, Taylor Swift tributes and movie previews.
A few years ago, the move would have been unthinkable. In 2010, Adobe bragged that as much as 75% of the Web’s videos used Flash. But as of last year, HTML5’s popularity seemed cemented, with more than 80% of the market using it.

Keeping it simple, it would seem that weeding out fraud is as easy as working with those you trust.

While the viewability fix may be a ways off (the IAB currently recommends shooting for 70 percent), there is already a lot being done to fight fraud, and many of the ideas out there have a shot at being a reality.
