    Neural activity predicts the timing of spontaneous decisions - EurekaAlert 1 hour ago

        Researchers have discovered a new type of brain activity that underlies the timing of voluntary actions, allowing them to forecast when a spontaneous decision will occur more than a second in advance.

    African countries move to require inclusion of local suppliers in big ... - PC World 1 hour ago

        With foreign telecommunications companies making billions of dollars from projects in Africa, governments on the continent are implementing regulations that require contractors to source 30 percent of labor or supplies from local companies.What this means is that foreign telecom companies will not be able to bid for telecom contracts without partnering with local telecom companies. Kenya and Zambia are the first to implement such regulations. The rules are expected to affect Chinese companies, including Huawei Technologies and ZTE, which have been winning most of the big telecom contracts in Africa.Both the Zambian and Kenyan governments say the regulations are aimed at boosting local capacity and encouraging knowledge transfer to local contractors that have been fighting for a share of the booming telecom sector in the region.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

    Comcast brings stream-anywhere cloud DVR to major cities - PC World 1 hour ago

        Comcast is rolling out its cloud DVR service across the country, beginning the long slog toward a future without set-top boxes.The new service will let customers stream DVR'd TV recordings to PCs, Macs, iOS devices, and Android devices, even outside the home. It's similar in function to Dish's Hopper DVR, but because the recordings are stored in the cloud, it could eventually allow for new features such as unlimited tuners and unlimited storage, GigaOM reports.What this means: This is just the first step toward eliminating the DVR box altogether. At first, cloud DVR will simply allow Comcast to install set-top boxes without hard drives, but it's not hard to imagine an all-streaming service supplemented by cloud recordings, delivered straight to connected TVs, phones, tablets and laptops. As GigaOM points out, Comcast already offers a streaming service—albeit without DVR—at select universities.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
