How to Solve Tech’s Diversity Problem? Code Speakers, Attendees Weigh In. (Video)

recode.net — Here at the Code Conference, we asked a handful of speakers and attendees to explain how they think the tech industry can address its diversity challenges. Mary Meeker highlighted the challenge of unconscious bias; Simeon Simeonov discussed how growing up under communism affected gender expectations; and Apple's Jeff Williams described some of the company's feeder programs, including its $100 million donation to President Obama's ConnectED.

Wand: Digital Sharing Simplified

recode.net — You've heard the lecture: If you want to keep digital passwords secure, don't share them with anyone else. But real life doesn't always work that way. Guests stay in your home and they need access to your Wi-Fi network, so you share the password. Spouses type in your credentials to log into your Pandora One account.

Nexar Uses iPhones to Capture Road Rage and Flag Bad Drivers

recode.net — When you get cut off by a reckless driver, what's your best recourse? A beep of the horn, flash of the high beams or flick of the middle finger might offer fleeting satisfaction. But that nut job of a driver is still on the road.

Apple’s ResearchKit Explained | Re/code

recode.net — If an Apple product is released and hundreds of people aren't lined up outside the Apple Store to buy it, is it still an Apple product? Yes. Yes, it is.

Three Dropcam Alternatives | Re/code

A Review of the New Sidekick LX

wsj.com — If you're tired of the basic BlackBerry design (small keyboard with a small screen) or the iPhone design (a virtual keyboard on a large touch screen) you might prefer a device with a roomy physical keyboard that stays out of your way, hiding under a large screen until you need it.

Digital Legacy Planning | Re/code

recode.net — Two weeks ago, I wrote a guide to something most people hate thinking about: How to proceed with digital decisions after the death of a loved one. The death of my friend's mother forced him into hours of back-and-forth with Apple's legal team to try to retrieve her iPhone photos.

A Month With LifeSpan’s Treadmill Desk

recode.net — The modern workspace would hardly have been recognizable 20 years ago: We've gone from hardwired phones to roaming telepresence robots, from static whiteboards to Internet-connected ones, and from sitting desks to workstations that let you walk in place - all while pairing wirelessly with your many devices.

A Blueprint for Your Digital Afterlife

cnbc.com — Chris Whitehead | Cultura Travel | Getty Images We all know that we're going to die someday. But what happens to our digital life after we're gone? A few months ago, a friend's mother suddenly passed away. Her iPhone 5s was password protected, but no one knew the code.
