We’ve made this video to show you how to fix the ‘Can’t Open File’ error on Google Chrome when downloading .apk files on Android.

This tutorial works not just for the FrostWire installer but for any app installer (.apk file) you may have had to download from a website, and it works for every Android phone or tablet.

There’s no reason why Google Chrome should be blocking the installation of .apk’s with their browser which happens to be the default of most phones out there, any app can handle opening .apk files, Google has simply decided to have more control of the android ecosystem and is trying to force everyone to use their Google Play market.

If things keep going this way, Google will be able to censor app developers completely if apps…

Cancer patient receives 3D printed ribs in world-first surgery

News @ CSIRO

The sternum (the central piece) and the rib cages emanating from it, have been designed using precise scans to perfectly fit in the patient's chest after he had sections removed. 3D printed sternum: The ‘chest’ story you’ll hear all week. Image credit: Anatomics

A Spanish cancer patient has received a 3D printed titanium sternum and rib cage designed and manufactured right here in Australia.

Suffering from a chest wall sarcoma (a type of cancerous tumour that grows, in this instance, around the rib cage), the 54 year old man needed his sternum and a portion of his rib cage replaced. This part of the chest is notoriously tricky to recreate with prosthetics, due to the complex geometry and design required for each patient. So the patient’s surgical team determined that a fully customisable 3D printed sternum and rib cage was the best option.

Here's how the 3D printed sternum and rib cage fit inside the patient's body. Here’s how the 3D printed sternum and rib cage fit inside the patient’s body.

That’s when they turned to Melbourne-based medical device company Anatomics, who designed and manufactured the implant utilising our 3D printing facility, Lab 22.

Does Global Trade Need A Global Currency?

Longitudes

Rimas Kapeskas

Our world is getting smaller, flatter and more connected every day.

The rise of e-commerce has empowered consumers and changed the landscape for buying and selling goods, while transforming the worldwide economy.

This omnipresent demand for goods, regardless of the market, will soon get even more intense.

However, the current payment, clearing and settlement systems are major bottlenecks to the flow of global trade. They are inefficient, have long settlement times and high-cost fees and exchange rates.

Today’s technologies have enhanced the global exchange of information about goods and bolstered transportation networks moving items across borders. People around the globe have access to virtual marketplaces that feel borderless.

But consumers are still stuck in the credit card age of payments for those transactions. Sure, credit cards have been around for 65-plus years. But they are ripe for a technological leap.

#IWasThinking S01E04 Making our own “Secret” Society

Thanks for watching! Unlike Uslar Pietri’s “Invisible Friends” on YouTube you don’t have to be invisible! Send a video response or leave a comment below.

On this episode
Wish I was part of a secret society, a great unconditional support network.

Let’s form our own, only smart folks looking to change the world for the better should be in. Thoughts about free energy from the earth’s magnetic field (what would’ve Tesla done if he had wikipedia). Thanks to the 60 to 90 people who watch, I’m not talking to an empty room, yay.

Come to think about it, some religions are just that (powerful brotherhoods in the open), they just have a mythical pretext to come together.
