Tianjin Blast: The New Multi-Perspective Disaster-Porn News, Brought to You By Smartphones and Drones

As Chinese authorities scramble to discover* (or cover up) what caused a massive explosion in Tianjin, the internet is now awash in multi-angle, multi-proximity footage of the terrifying blast. In a reminder of what a strange world we now live in, dozens, perhaps hundreds of people captured the explosion on video; Tianjin reportedly has a population of 15 million people, and smartphones are ubiquitous. (For scale, NYC has about 8.4 million residents.)

Of all the shaky footage I’ve seen, this is the one video that really drove the scale of the multiple blasts home (Warning, language NSFW):

Listening to the audio, I found it somewhat troubling that the girl’s reaction was “Are you getting this?” and the guy says “Fuck yeah, I’m video’ing it” while holding the camera steady. After the secondary blast she again checks to ensure “Are you filming this?” and he reassures her that he is, as if that’s what matters most in that moment. I’m guessing they were just in shock.

They weren’t alone in recording, of course; as the first orange glow caught city residents’ eyes, droves of them rushed to windows while whipping out their phones. So numerous is the footage (all shot vertically, of course) that people have begun compiling synchronized split-screen shots in a terrifying sort of disaster porn:

I can’t understand Mandarin, but I imagine their dialogue is similar to what the Americans or Canadians are saying in the first video.

There is obviously much more footage than the two videos we’ve shown here, but we think this is enough to provide a sense of what happened. If you go looking on the internet for more, don’t look too hard; there are some disturbing clips out there, including CCTV footage that someone uploaded which shows an unfortunate man getting caught in the blast near a bank of glass doors.

And of course, what is a disaster without a drone. This overhead footage shot the following day provides a sense of the on-the-ground devastation:

When technology companies began placing cameras in smartphones, they probably imagined they were merely providing a convenient way for us to take family photos at the beach. I’m guessing they, along with the drone manufacturers, did not foresee that they would change the way we consume news.

___________________________________________________

*The latest report from Reuters indicates that firefighters may have unwittingly provided the fuel for the explosion, while trying to fight the first, smaller fire:

The warehouse [that was the source of the explosion], designed to house dangerous and toxic chemicals, was storing mainly ammonium nitrate, potassium nitrate and calcium carbide at the time of the blasts, according to police. The official Xinhua news agency has said several containers in the warehouse caught fire before the explosions.

Chemical safety experts said calcium carbide reacts with water to create acetylene, a highly explosive gas. An explosion could be caused if fire fighters sprayed the calcium carbide with water, they said.

LINE messenger has more than 150 million users, because we all love stickers

LINE messenger has more than 150 million users, we all love stickers

Four months since the Korean-Japanese messaging app broke through the 100 million user mark, LINE has added another 50 million — not bad for an app that only launched in June 2011. In another testament to people’s unabated love for stickers (or giant emoticons), LINE has launched in 11 languages and about 230 countries. New growth has apparently centered around the Middle East and Asia, with Taiwan, Japan and Thailand currently its most popular locales. The company is still looking to compete with incumbents like Whatsapp and Facebook in the US and Europe, however, with a little help from all those LINE-hosted games and apps.

Intel Haswell’s idle states reportedly won’t play well with some power supplies

Intel Haswell's lowpower state reportedly won't play well with cheap power supplies

One of the staples of Intel’s upcoming Haswell processor architecture is its support for lower-power idle states that can rival tablet chips in power consumption, even on the desktop. However, that may come with a big caveat for budget and custom-built PCs: certain power supplies might not cut it. VR-Zone claims that those idle states require as little as 0.05 amps of current, which could be too nuanced for older or cut-rate supplies that deliver power in bigger clumps. That might not be a problem for companies building complete PCs, but Corsair’s Robert Pearce tells The Tech Report that it may lead to a lot of motherboard builders playing it safe by disabling those specific modes by default. Many of us, in turn, would either have to buy a fresh supply or toggle the power-saving options ourselves. We’ve reached out to Intel to verify the truth, but it may be wisest to make a cleaner break from the past with any near-term upgrades.

Make Your Resume Pretty Without Having To Learn Photoshop

resume design service Make Your Resume Pretty Without Having To Learn Photoshop

Today, job hunters are creating ingenious ways to stand out and find work. There isn’t a day that goes by without a fantastic story in the news of what somebody did to land their dream job. Employers are responding to this as well, searching for more unique resumes that truly reflect an individual’s character and personal drive. Unfortunately, most of us don’t have substantial training in graphic design to allow for us to easily create our own beautiful resume designs. The good news is that quick and professional services such as ResumeBaker.com help us to complete the task easily and at an affordable price.

For only $65, you can choose you very own design from a gallery of dozens of templates. These templates have been created by professional artists who understand the kind of eye-popping resumes that can help job searchers land their dream job.

After they’ve finished, they’ll email it to you for your approval. It really is that simple. The result is a high quality, professionally designed resume that will capture the attention of hiring managers.

Of course, one could try to design his own resume. What you’ll probably discover, however, is even with the myriad of free design tools floating around online it isn’t an easy task. In fact, the result will more than likely be a disaster. Professional level graphic design is a unique skill that takes years to develop properly. Therefore, it isn’t something that can be learned in just a few hours.

Landing a job today is as much more about marketing oneself to a potential employer than anything else. In a way, we’re all in business for ourselves now. The traditional career is a dinosaur, slowly going the way of defined benefit plans and other relics of yesteryear when people were expected to work for the same company for thirty years. Today, it is all about promoting yourself. As with any business venture, it is often necessary to spend money in order to make it. So when considering your resume, there shouldn’t be any delay in investing in a service such as ResumeBaker, which can greatly help you to establish your own brand and open doors to new and exciting job opportunities. What better way to forge your own business identity and build a reputation within your professional field than by first having a wonderfully designed resume created which can be distributed at networking events and to hiring managers? Fortunately, with this resume design service, you can have just that and more.

HTC M4 leaked, suggests flagship style with middleweight specs (updated with comparison images)

HTC M4 leaks, brings flagship style with middleweight specs

Remember the M4? We’ve seen glances of a spec sheet, but now we get to see how it’s going to look. Courtesy of @evleaks, we can now tell it’s looking good. After the critically-acclaimed One, the company looks to be sharing its style tips around — at a glance the M4 appears almost identical to the HTC flagship, although the camera flash has been relocated to the center of the device and there’s a few less micro-drilled speaker holes. Running over the leaked specs, you can expect a smaller 4.3-inch screen at 720p resolution and possibly a cheaper build to the unibody beauty that leads HTC’s smartphone family.

There’s likely to be a dual-core processor, LTE-capable radio and 16GB of storage too. There’s better news, with the UltraPixel-packing 4-megapixel camera sensor rumored to make its way into the middleweight phone, although initial leaks pointed to a 13-megapixel sensor. The phone is mooted to appear later this quarter, but we’re still waiting on official word (and that all-important price) before we get too excited. But hey, it worked for Samsung.

Update: We’ve made a couple of comparison images of this rumored M4 with the 4.7-inch One. Check them out after the break.

Synthesizer giant Bob Moog to be inducted into Inventors Hall of Fame today

Bob Moog to be inducted into USPTO hall of fame

Lovers of classic synth, celebrate: pioneer Bob Moog will join the Inventors Hall of Fame today. The USPTO is bestowing that honor for patent number 3,475,623 granted in 1966 for the so-called Moog ladder filter that gave rise to its original synth and Minimoog Synthesizers, and is still used in synths like the Voyager and Sub Phatty today. To fete the occasion, the company is reissuing its classic ladder filter t-shirt that’ll come with a free hall of fame induction poster, and will also hold an ice cream social at the factory store in Asheville, NC. That’ll culminate in a rare Moog synth-heavy performance by aptly-named local group Ice Cream, so if you’re lucky enough to be in the area, the festivities kick off at 6 p.m.

It’s official: T-Mobile closes deal to acquire MetroPCS

T-Mobile has been slowly inching closer to closing its acquisition deal with MetroPCS, and the day for inking that contract is finally here. Less than a week after MetroPCS shareholders approved the merger, which would give them a total cash payment of $1.5 billion, the deal is done. In addition to giving Deutsche Telekom a 74 percent stake in the new company, the deal will bring nine million new prepaid customers to T-Mobile. According to the Uncarrier‘s President and CEO, the network would “continue our legacy of marketplace innovation by tearing up the old playbook and rewriting the rules of wireless to benefit consumers.” T-Mobile plans to keep the MetroPCS brand, holding on to its retail outlets too, pitching to different demographics with the two carriers, according to AllThingsD. MetroPCS broke the news to its customers first through Facebook, although Big Magenta followed swiftly with the official press release — you’ll find that right after the break.
