Taco Tuesday may have left Bricksville an apocalyptic wasteland, with cutesy hyper-intelligent aliens threatening to destroy anything left — but at least they’ve got Frappuccinos!The first trailer for The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part is here, and it’s definitely awesome.The Lego Movie 2 takes place five years after the events of the first film.Bricksville has become a Mad Max: Fury Road-style wasteland, but Emmet (Chris Pratt) can’t help but smile.In pops an alien, who takes Lucy (Elizabeth Banks) and some of her friends to a far-off land, including a galaxy where everything is a musical.It’s up to Emmet and his slowly dying houseplant to save them.
If you happen to hop on one of the two very special shuttles that are now running one-mile loops around the University of Michigan’s North Campus, a bunch of people with fancy degrees may very soon find out.They’re going to spend the next year studying how humans interact with, use, and feel about the autonomous vehicles, with the help of rider and community surveys, Wi-Fi data, and camera footage from inside and outside the vehicle.(The shuttles will come with human operators onboard, to deal with passengers and take control of the vehicle if there’s an emergency.)“The number one question we’re trying to understand is user trust,” says Carrie Morton, the deputy director of MCity, the university’s public-private partnership dedicated to studying and advancing autonomous vehicles.“How does consumer trust change over time with their increased exposure to the technology?”While no one has launched the sort of go-anywhere, Uber-like service many envision as the best use case for driverless tech, less ambitious autonomous shuttles been running a variety of short, limited, and low-speed routes in the US, Singapore, and Europe since at least 2014.
Att små detaljer kan ha stor påverkan på ett slutresultat är en sanning inom många verksamheter.Men det underlättar om man har en bra uppfattning redan från början.Här är ett, kanske oväntat, exempel från verkligheten.Ett sätt för en sajt att få besökaren att läsa mer på sajten är ”infinite scroll” – att automatiskt visa en andra text, när besökaren kommit till slutet av den första.Men hur den automatiska bläddringen utformas kan påverka hur många som läser vidare.Det fick en designer erfara som provade att lägga till lite information i form av länkar mellan den första och andra texten.
The annual conference tied together all of the latest updates to Apple's platforms—iOS, macOS, watchOS, and tvOS—along with some bigger initiatives focused on bolstering privacy and security, and curbing technology addiction.Siri can now make suggestions based on the things you do habitually, like ordering a soy latte from Starbucks every morning or ordering sushi on Sundays.The next version of ARKit (simply called “ARKit 2”) Apple’s suite of developer tools for augmented reality, comes with more sophisticated face-tracking tech and 3-D object detection.It allows for “shared” experiences, so you and your friends can all see the same digital overlays when you point separate iPads at the same AR playground.Have your friends with the iPhone X finally stopped annoying you with Animoji videos?The face-tracking tech that formerly animated the poop emoji now powers Memoji, a customizable character made to look just like you.
Apple today introduced watchOS5 with new updates including updated algorithms for health and fitness, a walkie-talkie feature, 3rd party app support, and a better way to talk to Siri.Fitness updates: A new workout type for yoga including heart-rate monitoring and tracking, and another for hiking that helps to measure pace and heart-rate.Can also now set a custom pace alert, and runners will also get cadence so they can see current steps per minute.Watch will also detect when you’ve ended your workout and suggest you stop it if you’ve forgotten.Walkie talkie: this new feature brings press-to-talk communication to watch owners.When a user contacts a friend via watch-to-watch communications the recipient will feel a haptic vibration and hear a beep sound, instead of a phonecall.
Researchers have come up with all sorts of ways to propel tiny robots deep into the human body to perform tasks, such as delivering drugs and taking biopsies.Directed by ultrasound, the tiny robots, made of gold nanowires with a biological coating, dart around blood, attach to bacteria, and neutralize toxins produced by the bacteria.The invention, developed in the labs of Joseph Wang and Liangfang Zhang at the University of California San Diego (UCSD), was described today in Science Robotics.The researchers hope the robotic detoxification system could provide an alternative to the multiple, broad-spectrum antibiotics currently used to treat life-threatening infections—one that can work in minutes.So far, they have demonstrated the proof-of-concept system in the lab using test tubes of blood.Many of these were built with drug delivery in mind, and they move in imaginative ways.
Oculus VR’s new platform for live entertainment experiences is launching today for the new, standalone Oculus Go headset and Samsung’s Gear VR.The platform, called Oculus Venues, was first announced at Facebook’s F8 developer conference at the beginning of May.It’s centered on delivering live events like sporting matches, concerts, and comedy shows in the style of a streaming TV service — but in VR.That means viewers effectively get front-row seats to live shows from the comfort of their home, so long as they’re content with wearing a VR headset for an extended period of time.The first Venues event will be a live Vance Joy concert at Colorado’s Red Rocks Amphitheater, followed by a Gotham Comedy Live show streamed from New York City in partnership with live events platform NextVR.Oculus has also released an entire summer lineup through August 27th that includes a pretty diverse slate of sports matches, live shows, and movies.

We're ready to test iOS 12 beta next week at Apple's WWDC 2018 keynote, but first, iOS 11 is getting one last revision thanks to today's iOS 11.4 update.iOS 11.4 is officially (and finally) bringing Messages in the Cloud and AirPlay 2 to your iPhone and iPad, long-overdue features announced at last year's WWDC event.Not only were these features first teased 12 months ago, they were part of several iOS 11 betas, but rescinded from final public software update each update.That all changes with iOS 11.4.What they can do (and can't do)AirPlay 2 brings multi-room and stereo HomePod support to match what Google Cast and Amazon Alexa can already do.
Infrastrukturminister Tomas Eneroth (S) får ett brev från Allianspolitiker i Skånes 33 kommuner med anledning av omfattande tågstrul i Skåne den senaste tiden.De uppmanar regeringen att akut tillsätta en kriskommission för svensk infrastruktur.”Försenade, inställda och till och med evakuerade tåg har blivit vardag för de skånska resenärerna.Vi har varnat för den eskalerande situationen i skånsk infrastruktur tidigare och nu har situationen nått nya värre proportioner.Det är inte bara opålitligt att resa med tåg - det har blivit otryggt”, säger Christer Wallin (M), oppositionsråd Lund, i ett pressmeddelande.Alliansen i Skåne vill också att det görs en regeländring som möjliggör ett förskott av medel, för att tidigarelägga järnvägsunderhåll och nyinvesteringar.
According to a report from 9to5 Mac, Apple is at work on an entirely new line of computers under the codename “Star.” Distinct from products like the MacBook or the iPad Pro, Project Star is said to be a “brand new device family.” Project Star is said to be a hybrid touchscreen computer that “runs a derivative of iOS.”The report doesn’t have a lot of details, nor does it claim a specific source, but it does offer a few interesting snippets of information that hint at what kind of device this will be.Apparently, this Project Star computer will include a touchscreen, a SIM card slot, GPS, compass, and is water resistant.All of those things sound like a mobile device like an iPad, but 9to5 Mac has also notes that it runs a specification called Extensible Firmware Interface (EFI).If it really does use EFI, that could mean we’re looking at something more akin to an ARM-based notebook.An ARM-based MacBook would give it capabilities such as LTE — a feature that new Qualcomm-powered laptops like the HP Envy X2 have.
The $539 million that Apple won in its patent infringement case against Samsung is fairly insignificant compared to the some $300 billion of profit Apple has made in the years since it filed the suit in 2011.The money is nice, but for Apple, the real victory probably comes from the principle of the thing.As this chart from Statista shows, the money that the Cupertino-based company was awarded is hardly enough to even register on Apple's radar.— it's actually less than Apple's net profit has been in any given quarter since April 2011.
Facebook blir allt viktigare när det kommer till hur människor konsumerar nyheter.Samtidigt läser allt färre dagstidningar.Det är några av resultaten från Nordicoms mediebarometer.För första gången sedan mätningens start står det klart att mer än hälften av de tillfrågade huvudsakligen konsumerar medier som tv, tidningar och radio på digital väg.– Undersökningen bekräftar bland annat ett mönster där allt fler tittar på tv digitalt i stället för att sitta framför en vanlig tv, säger medieanalytiker Ulrika Facht vid Nordicom.Mindre än hälften, 44 procent, av de svarande säger sig läsa någon dagstidning på daglig basis.
Controversy over Apple’s battery management choices on older, out-of-warranty iPhones drove the company to offer discounted battery replacement services for affected customers toward the end of 2017.Now Apple is issuing a £54 credit to customers who paid the full price of £79 to replace their batteries last year, instead of the current £25 fee.Trust in Apple and its smartphones was shaken last year when consumers with older iOS devices complained about random restarts and throttled devices.Eventually we learned that Apple had taken it upon itself to employ some battery management tactics that slowed down older iOS devices to compensate for degraded batteries, which understandably drew the ire of consumers.Apple responded by saying it may offer rebates to consumers who purchased a £79 battery replacement.Right now, iPhone 6 or later models are eligible for a £25 battery replacement, while older devices are still subject to the original £79 fee according to Apple’s support page detailing the rebate programme.
Samsung is to adopt an unconventional advertising approach for its newest range of QLED televisions by scrapping the type of glossy high definition gushing which typifies TV advertising in favour of a burst of static and a black screen.The ad was purposefully designed by PR and creative agency Taylor Herring to strike fear into the hearts of viewers.The 20-second long commercial saw the TV apparently switch off for a heart stopping five seconds, before springing back to life.The trick ads will begin appearing on screens from tomorrow with viewers of The Simpsons, Coronation Street and First dates all set for a shock as they are hit first by a burst of static then five seconds of darkness.Only once Samsung has your full attention will a more traditional promotional message appear, highlighting the ability of QLED TVs to display a picture or wallpaper background even while in stand-by mode.Rebecca Hirst, marketing director, Samsung Electronics UK and Ireland said: "This unique and disruptive marketing campaign has been designed to underscore our messaging in the most dramatic way possible, switching sets off to remind the public that their TV is simply a boring black screen for 90% of the time.”
the Fascination with Kronecker, and it makes the synth unique, is that it works a bit like a drum machine.Each time you press down a key repeats the sound and sync to any tempo.the Sounds is FM and noisebaserade and created by four transmitters that send out so-called ljudpartiklar and the possibilities seem to say the least, impressive.As the icing on the cake is the arpeggiatorn in addition, the program, which means you can easily create your own progressions.the A video says more than thousand words:the Kronecker is a universalapp and offers inter-App Audio, Audiobus, and Ableton Link support and acts as AUv3.
Readdle, the company behind popular email client Spark, is releasing a major new version of Spark on iOS and macOS.Spark is expanding beyond a personal email client.Front lets you share inboxes, such as email@example.com so that the entire HR team can collaborate on inbound emails.After that, it works pretty much like Google Docs.Multiple people can write and edit emails in real time.You can comment and have a private chat about the email before writing a reply.
Yesterday we told you about an ongoing court case in the US, where the Dish network is suing the operator of the TVAddons library and the developer of the ZemTV addon.Yesterday's post mentioned that TVAddons' operator Adam Lackman had denied the allegations of copyright infringement, though ZemTV developer Shahjahan Durrani had yet to answer any of the court's questions.Now Durrani has confirmed he's giving up his fight, because he doesn't have the money to continue.Durrani, better known as Shani, never denied that he was the person behind the ZemTV addon that's supposedly caused Dish Network so many headaches.But Shani is based in London, while Dish Network has opted to file the lawsuit in Texas - a place neither Shani or Lackman have been to.While the courts were asked to dismiss the case for this reason, they were unsuccessful and both ended up having to find the money to pay for their defence.
In the beginning of next year, sometime in February, the next the LEGO movie premiere.Everything is in principle unclear, but, among others, Chris Pratt, Elizabeth Banks and Channing Tatum go into mikrofonbåset and do voice overs.The first LEGO movie was legendary good, while Batman and especially Ninjago films from the same authors and -women was quite poor.
Capcom has been one publisher throwing a lot of support behind the Nintendo Switch, and now it’s about to provide a big first for the console: game streaming.Capcom has announced Biohazard 7: Resident Evil Cloud Version for the Switch, taking pretty much everyone by surprise.The fact that Resident Evil 7 is coming to the Switch will be exciting enough for most fans, but the way it’s being released is fascinating as well.Just as the name suggests, Resident Evil 7: Cloud Version will be streamed from Capcom’s servers rather than saved to your device.It doesn’t even seem like you’ll have the option to buy it outright – instead, you’ll purchase access passes in 180 day increments that cost 2,000 yen (around $18).The cloud version includes all of the DLC that has been released for the retail edition, so if you can complete it with your first 180 day pass, this turns into quite the deal.
