Everyday computers are ill suited to modeling natural processes such as how neurons work or how bees swarm. This is because they plod along sequentially, executing one instruction at a time. “Nature isn’t like that,” says UCL computer scientist Peter Bentley. “Its processes are distributed, decentralized and probabilistic. And they are fault tolerant, able to heal themselves. A computer should be able to do that.”
The next-generation Xbox—the one that will follow the still-popular Xbox 360—will run multiple games at once, require game installations, and will only work when a much-improved version of the popular but divisive Kinect sensor array is plugged in, according to a source who says he has access to development hardware.

Abrams will be directing and Academy Award-winning writer Michael Arndt will write the screenplay.
Nonetheless, evidence has surfaced that could threaten SnapChat’s private world of ephemeral messaging, bringing those innocent photos or salacious sexts to light. Alexia, via Buzzfeed, reported on SnapChat’s first “security loophole,” which showed that “snaps” could be accessed via temporary files stored on users’ iPhones and other iOS devices. While Alexia makes the good point that few beyond tech reporters are likely to go to the trouble of unearthing these snaps, we’ve now been alerted to another hack that allows users to capture “snaps” on their iOS devices and doesn’t require you to use iExplorer or iFunBox.
