Submission + - SPAM: This search engine remembers literally everything that's been on your computer

schwit1 writes: Our brains often forget where we saw something among the countless tabs and documents on our computers each day.

To make it easier to find things, Seattle-based Atlas Informatics launched Atlas Recall, which lets you search for anything you've ever looked at on your computer.

Atlas Informatics founder and CEO Jordan Ritter calls the software "a photographic memory for your digital life." In a demonstration to CNNMoney, that proved to be a fairly accurate assessment.

Once installed, Atlas Recall displays personalized search results from the app, desktop search, or Google ,search. This includes web pages, emails, Slack chats, Netflix films, Spotify songs, or anything else that's appeared in front of your eyes on your screen.

How does it work? Once installed on your hard drive and browser, Atlas Recall runs in the background and begins collecting your activity. The company captures all the content you've looked at and stores it on its servers.

Governments and lawyers the world over are salivating.

Submission + - US government licenses Unreal game engine to train FBI agents and army medics

cylonlover writes: While games like Batman: Arkham City and Gears of War are certainly entertaining, virtually beating up thugs and fighting subterranean creatures doesn't exactly translate into real world skills.

By using Epic's Unreal Engine 3, some United States government agencies like the FBI and US Army are hoping to give their employees tools for virtually practicing their skills in a more realistic environment and better prepare them to save lives.

Submission + - Ask Slashdot. The very best paper airplane

An anonymous reader writes: "The Harrier" or "Eastern star" as it is also called, is very well known, and is considered to be the very best paper airplane. After much searching and trying, I have not found a better plane, so I am asking Slashdot if there is anything beating "The Harrier" in a competition (in-doors or out-doors). This would be a really nice geek skill!
