  • Twitter for iOS and Android now filters out the pictures, video and people you hate from search results

    Twitter has just updated its iOS and Android app with new search filters plus the ability to view all tweets in your results instead of just the top few. Those filters include a new photo search tool that shows images in either a grid or list, one that just displays the tweets of the people you follow and, of course, a video filter for all you Vine and YouTube aficionados out there. Additionally, Twitter is introducing a trending timeline in the Discover tab that shows what’s the hottest topic of the moment along with related tweets. So if you’ve ever wanted to look up exactly why everyone’s buzzing about what a fox says, well now you’ll know. Twitter addicts can go ahead and download the app updates at the source links below.

  • Google offers 'sneak peek' of Glass development kit, shows Glassware can actually be useful

    So far, development on Glass has been extremely limited by the tools put in the hands of app creators. Namely the Mirror API with its constant need for an internet connection and limited functionality. The newly released Glass Development Kit (or at least an extremely early version of it) puts many more arrows in the quiver of coders. For one, apps can be built completely for offline use and can now directly access to Glass’ hardware. This will allow Glassware to be made with the same capabilities as Google’s own creations. It also introduces a few new features, including “live cards” which, like Windows Live Tiles, feature constantly updating information. Where as the static timeline cards live to the right of the home screen on Glass, live cards are found with a swipe to the left. Exercise app Strava has a demo version of an app that keeps details about your jog or bike ride constantly updating on a live card, including distance and speed.

  • Nike's LunarENDOR QS Snowboard boots will make you the flashiest rider on the slopes

    Nike is betting that maybe one or two snowboarders like to showboat. So if you’re more corkscrew, than chicken salad, the firm’s LunarENDOR QS boots — complete with 30 LED swoosh — might catch your eye. If not, they’ll certainly catch everyone else’s as you tear down those nighttime black runs. Back in daylight, you can save power by switching off via the power button on the cuff. That said, we know any self-respecting, gear-loving riders out there will have enough juice to keep their whole techno-shredding set-up going all day. You’ll have to wait until mid-December though before you can pull on your regular sneaks and head to a store to get a set.

  • 'Selfie' beats bitcoins, lab meat, twerking and a tiny mammal for word of the year
    The good news: we’re apparently a little less obsessed with acronyms than we have been in past years. The bad news? It seems we’re still addicted to taking photographs in bathroom mirrors for posting on social networks. According to the Oxford Dictionary, use of the word “selfie” has increased by leaps and bounds over the past year, up some 12,000-percent. That’s enough to earn it the honor of becoming the academic reference book’s word of the year. And, this being the Oxford Dictionary, there’s naturally a nice etymology involved, tracing the word’s usage to a self-reportedly drunken poster on an Australian messageboard who smashed their lip on a flight of stairs. So…congrats? Also on the shortlist: binge-watch, bitcoin, schmeat (synthetic meat, naturally), showrooming, twerk and olinguito, an adorable raccoon relative from Colombia. Don’t worry, you’re all winners in our book.
