The Verge Playlist: Victory for the internet

The Verge Playlist: Victory for the internetWe were perplexed by the color of a (kind of tacky) dress, we got emotionally invested in a high-speed llama chase, a new season of House of Cards is on Netflix, and, most importantly, the FCC has officially voted in favor of Title II classification for the internet.

Seattle’s police department has a YouTube channel for its body camera footage

Seattle's police department has a YouTube channel for its body camera footageSince then, cities around the country, from New York to LA, have been testing body cameras in their police forces. Seattle's police department recently launched a YouTube channel to store its force's body camera footage for the public to view. Last year, the police department recruited hacker Timothy Clemans to create software that would redact images and elminate sound from the body camera footage, the Seattle Times reports. According to SPDBlotter, Clemans' software allowed the department to redact more than four hours of footage in just half a day, whereas the old method would've required days of work. The Seattle Times says the police department hopes to make the tools available to other cities for free in the near future.

HTC One M9 hands-on video leaks onto the internet

HTC One M9 hands-on video leaks onto the internetHTC's new flagship, the One M9, will be anything but a surprise when it is announced tomorrow at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The video confirms everything we already knew: the M9 looks much like its predecessor, the HTC One M8, though the dual-camera setup has been scrapped and the front-facing camera has been beefed up with the company's "Ultrapixel" technology to take better selfies in low light. It seems the video was recorded during an embargoed press event, which tech companies often use to show off new devices to the media ahead of their official unveiling. Unfortunately for HTC, it appears this video accidentally found its way onto the internet.

What made CoW stand out was that it got so much attention," says organizer Claus Raasted, a prolific contributor to the world of Nordic larp. At $175,000, College of Wizardry will play three times in November.
