Volvo’s decision to limit the top speed of its new cars was only the start of it, with the automaker announcing new smart controls, driver monitoring, and collaboration with the rest of the industry to cut road safety accidents and death.The Swedish firm divided opinion among drivers earlier this month, when it announced it would be capping the maximum speed of its new cars from 2020, limiting them to 112 mph.It was an unexpected move, in an industry where top speed is still a key metric.While Volvo has, like other car companies, been adopting increasing active safety technology to cut down crashes and fatalities, “technology alone will not get it all the way to zero,” the automaker said.“People often drive too fast in a given traffic situation and have poor speed adaption in relation to that traffic situation and their own capabilities as a driver,” Volvo safety expert Jan Ivarsson said.The new Volvo Care Key will be standard on all new Volvo cars from the 2021 model year – which will go on sale from 2020 – and allow further caps to be set on top speed.

Microsoft has released a new preview version of Windows 10 for the 19H1 build – in other words, the next upgrade expected to be called the April 2019 Update – and the vanishing amount of work to be done seems to indicate that this update is indeed imminent.There were only two bug fixes to make in build 18361 – a cure for an issue with virtual machines, and a fix for some unexpected BitLocker prompts – compared to six bug fixes on the previous release.And this new build comes just four days after that previous one, so the quickening pace of release, and the fact that hardly anything needs fixing now, suggests that Microsoft is on the brink of finishing work on the April 2019 Update.Microsoft also reminded us that it has locked down Windows 10’s default apps, and the current versions of these applications are what will ship with the April 2019 Update when it’s released.At the same time, there are still a few known issues that remain with the current build 18361, including problems with Creative X-Fi sound cards, some Realtek SD card readers, and most importantly, the fact that some games which use anti-cheat software might trigger a crash (a full-on ‘Green Screen of Death’).Obviously the latter is something that definitely needs to be solved in short order, at least for the gamers out there, but presumably that will be next on the list for bug-squashing.

When you create a Google document, or doc, you're making use of one of the best tools available for collaborative work between people in different locations.Google docs automatically save themselves every few seconds after new content is added or edits are made, so they dramatically curtail the risk of lost work.While perhaps the major selling factor of a Google doc is how these online documents allow people to collaborate together on a project from remote locations, the real beauty of a Google dos is how it protects your work from being lost in the event of a computer crash or a human error.Google docs auto save themselves almost constantly and are backed up to a remote location, so unless you intentionally delete a file, it will never be lost.If you're working on a report, term paper, or work project you can't afford to lose, consider shutting down Word or Pages and turning instead to a Google doc.You can always copy and paste your work from Google to another program later, but you can never retrieve a document accidentally deleted off your computer.

Airline maker accused of not realising what controversial MCAS system could doBoeing chief exec Dennis Muilenberg has repeated earlier promises that a software update for the troubled Boeing 737 Max airliners is coming "soon".In an open letter published last night Muilenberg acknowledged the "shared grief for all those in mourning" after the separate crashes of two 737 Max 8s within a few months - Ethiopian Airlines flight 302 and Lion Air flight 610."We're united with our airline customers, international regulators and government authorities in our efforts to support the most recent investigation, understand the facts of what happened and help prevent future tragedies," wrote Muilenberg.It was not until China grounded all 737 Maxes in its airspace, followed by the rest of the world's aviation regulators, that US authorities eventually acted as well.Muilenberg continued: "Soon we'll release a software update and related pilot training for the 737 MAX that will address concerns discovered in the aftermath of the Lion Air Flight 610 accident."

Call of Duty is one of the most popular first-person shooter games on console and PC, and publisher Activision has now confirmed it’s coming to smartphones too in the shape of Call of Duty: Mobile.Call of Duty: Mobile will be a port of the multiplayer mode of the games, optimized for mobile, with a range of modes from the games including Team Deathmatch and Search and Destroy.Activision has confirmed that popular maps from the online shooter will be included, including Nuketown and Crash, and by the sounds of it every map in the game will be a port from other Call of Duty titles.Interestingly, maps will be ported from both the Black Ops and Modern Warfare series, a rare instance of harmony between the two, and Activision has also confirmed that characters and weapons from both will be present in the game.However the mobile title will be a standalone entry in the Call of Duty franchise, not part of either series, and there’s no word on a single-player or zombies element to Call of Duty: Mobile.Activision has confirmed that the game will be free to play and will receive free updates, although like other rival mobile shooters PUBG Mobile and Fortnite paid skins could be made available.

Why do so many people in the business IT community still make fun of fax?No, we’re asking why we still hear fax jokes at all (while people long ago stopped making snarky remarks about, say, mimeograph machines and tape recorders).Which means that even though we may not like having to support it—and we make fun of it every chance we get—fax might be one of the most important data transfer protocols in our offices due to the nature of the documents that require it.And because most corporate fax setups are built on legacy technology—fax machines (which jam), expensive on-premises fax servers (which crash), and old-fashioned phone lines (which can fail for any number of reasons)—chances are your company’s fax infrastructure has not changed in decades, which means it just isn’t reliable enough for your mission-critical documents.The Bad News: Your Company’s Fax Infrastructure Isn’t ReliableThe most important ingredient to ensure reliable faxing is physical and geographic redundancy.
We’ve seen several Call of Duty games hit mobile platforms over the years, but Activision isn’t stopping there.The company has just announced Call of Duty Mobile, a free-to-play multiplayer shooter in conjunction with Tencent Games.The game seems nigh-on identical to Call of Duty: Legends of War, a Tencent-developed game that soft-launched in alpha late last year.But the Legends of War tagline has obviously been dropped in favor of the Mobile moniker.Nevertheless, you can expect what looks like 60fps gameplay, multiple game modes (e.g.Team Deathmatch, Frontline, Free for All), and classic Call of Duty maps (such as Nuketown and Crash).
A US congressman is getting a crash course in the Streisand Effect after filing a lawsuit this week against Twitter and a handful of his harshest critics on the antisocial network.Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) seeks a $250m payout from the micro-blogging site, and three tweeters who lampooned him in recent years.Nunes' complaints almost immediately started trending on Twitter and elsewhere on the web.While Nunes hopes his legal action will expose what he believes is a secretive campaign within Twitter to silence the voices of Twitter addicts on the political right, the 40-page complaint is also a greatest hits album of people making fun of the SoCal congresscritter.Devin Nunes just nominated himself for the self-own Hall of Fame.— Tom Tomorrow (@tomtomorrow) March 18, 2019

Uber quietly prepped to launch a robo-taxi service.Waymo said riders would be able to catch a driverless ride by year’s end.General Motors’ Cruise said it would start testing in New York City, the country’s traffic chaos capital.Instead, one year ago today, an Uber self-driving SUV testing in Arizona struck and killed a woman named Elaine Herzberg as she was crossing the street.And it ushered in a year during which the greatest promise of the technology—a drastic drop in road deaths—could feel farther away than ever.Waymo launched its service in Phoenix, but keeps its human safety drivers behind the wheel.

Big Blue has issued an update today to clean up a series of security flaws in Watson that stem from the analytics system's use of Java components.The most serious of the five bugs is CVE-2018-2633, a flaw in Java SE, Java SE Embedded, and JRockit JNDI that can allow an attacker with local network access to remotely take control of the targeted box."Successful attacks require human interaction from a person other than the attacker and while the vulnerability is in Java SE, Java SE Embedded, JRockit, attacks may significantly impact additional products," the CVE summary of the bug reads."Successful attacks of this vulnerability can result in takeover of Java SE, Java SE Embedded, JRockit"While IBM notes that while the flaw is particularly difficult for an attacker to exploit, Watson boxes are a particularly valuable target, so admins would be wise to address the bugs post-haste.Another flaw, CVE-2018-2603, would allow an attacker to crash the targeted Watson system by initiating a denial of service attack.

2019 marks the first time the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has evaluated Volvo's smallest SUV, the XC40, and it appears Volvo's stereotype as an excessively safe automaker has paid off once again.The 2019 Volvo XC40 has earned the IIHS' highest accolade, Top Safety Pick+.In order to achieve this designation, a car must undergo a series of crash tests that go above and beyond the tests the federal government uses in its five-star rating system.It must also undergo evaluations of its headlights and crash-avoidance systems, and only vehicles that rate well in each category are given this award.Volvo's littlest ute picked up the highest rating, Good, in each of the IIHS' crash tests.This includes the passenger-side small overlap front crash test, which was only recently implemented and hopes to ensure automakers provide the same amount of crash coverage for the driver as the passenger.
