Spotify caused a stir when it unveiled its “hateful conduct” policy earlier this month.Now, a few weeks later, it’s reportedly already rethinking the tact, after pushback from artists and inside the company itself.According to a new report from Bloomberg, the streaming service has been in discussions to reinstate at least one of the artists it singled out when it announced a policy that would pull artists from editorial-curated playlists for actions outside of music.“We don’t censor content because of an artist’s or creator’s behavior, but we want our editorial decisions — what we choose to program — to reflect our values,” the company wrote on May 10.“When an artist or creator does something that is especially harmful or hateful (for example, violence against children and sexual violence), it may affect the ways we work with or support that artist or creator.”In particular, Spotify seemingly went out of its way to single out R. Kelly and rapper XXXTentacion.

An automated system that uses robots has been designed to rapidly produce human mini-organs derived from stem cells.Researchers at the University of Washington School of Medicine in Seattle developed the new system."This is a new 'secret weapon' in our fight against disease,' said Freedman, who is a scientist at the UW Institute for Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine, as well as at the Kidney Research Institute, a collaboration between the Northwest Kidney Centers and UW Medicine.In recent years, researchers have been increasingly successful in growing stem cells into more complex, three-dimensional structures called mini-organs or organoids.In this process, the liquid-handling robots introduced the stem cells into plates that contained as many as 384 miniature wells each, and then coaxed them to turn into kidney organoids over 21 days.With a speed that would have impressed Henry Ford's car assembly line, the robots could produce many plates in a fraction of the time.
Ubisoft has pushed back Skull and Bones from its expected late 2018 launch to the developer’s next fiscal year.Skull and Bones will now arrive between April 1, 2019 and March 31, 2020, Ubisoft announced during its earnings call.The piracy sim turns the naval warfare aspects of the Assassin’s Creed franchise into a full, multiplayer-centric game.It was developed by Ubisoft Singapore, the studio behind the ship battles in Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag.Crews of up to six players set sail across the Indian Ocean in search of treasure and conflict.While Ubisoft didn’t get into specifics about the reason for the delay, it seems that it was partially related to Ubisoft’s release schedule.
In a video heavy on a dramatic orchestral music and hints of new Windows interfaces, but somewhat light on detail, Microsoft showed off the newest edition of the overpriced whiteboard business collaboration tool.The existing Windows 10-powered device began shipping in 2016 and the multitouch screens currently come in 55-inch and 84-inch flavours at $8,999 and $21,999 respectively.While not initially a runaway sales success, it has gained a foothold in the corporate space with Microsoft claiming 5,000 customers (including over half of the Fortune 100 companies.)The Surface Hub is aimed fairly and squarely at customers who have bought into Microsoft's collaboration platforms, and while a good proportion of the screens will have found themselves serving up interminable PowerPoint presentations, that really isn't the point of the thing.Microsoft hopes users will leap from their seats and prod the screens with excited fingers.The new incarnation, currently only a 50.5-inch display although with a welcome resolution bump to what Microsoft is calling "4K+", ups the ante somewhat.
En uppenbar förändring i statusfältet i kommande Android P är att klockan ligger längst till vänster i statusfältet, istället för längst till höger.Ändringen har med det inbyggda stödet för sensorjack i skärmen att göra.Även om det går fort att lära sig att titta uppe i vänstra hörnet istället är en nackdel att den delen hittills varit avsedd för aviseringar – om det finns någon slags avisering visas en ikon där, annars är det tomt.Det är dock sannolikt också bara en vanesak.En annan förändring som har uppdagats är att statusfältet endast visar fyra aviseringsikoner samtidigt.Om det finns fler olika typer av aviseringar indikeras detta genom prickar – fler för varje dold avisering.
BBC Scotland has delayed the launch of its new channel until February next year, behind the original plan when it was tentatively set to go live this Autumn.Having been given the consent of Ofcom last month to create the new channel, BBC Scotland director Donalda MacKinnon has informed staff via a memo that there will be a delay, despite commissions for programming being underway.“In deciding when to launch, we looked at a number of options, including late autumn and around Christmas time, but we concluded that coming on air early in the new year is the best option for us, audiences and our suppliers," MacKinnon's memo read."We took into consideration programme development and production time and audience trends during holidays – especially around the crowded marketing period at Christmas.Getting the channel right is preferable to simply getting it on air as quickly as possible and having some additional time after final approval should be beneficial."Pilots for the new 9pm news programme have also begun, with the employment of around 80 staff in news in progress too.
While data privacy has been a much-talked about topic lately--with questions still lingering about how giants like Facebook and Google are sharing our personal information--much less has been said about how we are going to manage digital information about our health in the future, particularly digital recordings of doctors' visits.In an article recently published online in The BMJ, Dartmouth Institute researchers Glyn Elwyn, MD, and Paul Barr, PhD, together with patient co-author Sheri Piper, write about the enormous potential of digital recording to improve healthcare, as well as the pressing need to develop new policies on how to collect, manage, and store this data.Dr. James Ryan, a family physician in Michigan, has been offering to record visits with his patients since 2011.(The audio-files have been 'tagged' during the recording to help locate relevant parts of the talk.)At the same time, tech giants like Google and Amazon are "racing to create systems" that use recordings of doctor-patient conversations as a means to populate electronic health records.More than a few isolated 'experiments,' or even a trend, the authors say that recording the clinical visit will form the centerpiece of a health system evolution, with far-reaching implications for all stakeholders.
Stephen Hawkings familj välkomnar besökare från framtiden till en minnesceremoni i samband med gravsättningen i Westminster Abbey i London.Mannen som kastade ljus över universums uppkomst och hjälpte oss att förstå hur svarta hål fungerar avled den 14 mars.Hawkings sista viloplats blir bredvid vetenskapsmannen Isaac Newton.Det finns tusen biljetter för allmänheten till minnesceremonin den 15 juni.Den som vill komma måste fylla i sitt födelsedatum _ och det kan vara vilken dag som helst fram till slutet av 2038.”Professor Hawking bjöd en gång in till en fest för tidsresenärer, för att se om någon skulle dyka upp om han skickade inbjudan efter festen” skriver en bloggare i London som gjorde upptäckten.
Finished 35 years later, one-quarter of all vehicle miles driven in the United States use the interstate system.As would be expected, the most direct effect of the interstate was on other players in the transportation industry—rail in particular.Passenger rail traffic fell by more than half in the years that followed and trucking went on to be the dominant form of freight, growing 40X to become four times the size of the railways.Highways helped build the suburbs, in turn leading to the rise of the shopping mall and retailers like Walmart.In business and in life, it is easy to foresee the first-order effect.But it is much more difficult to think about the cascading consequences—both good and bad—that might come about as a result of that first change.
Netflix will bring back its newest big-ticket sci-fi series, Lost in Space, for a second season.The renewal was announced via the official Lost in Space Twitter account, which sent out a tweet reading “More Danger, Will Robinson.Lost in Space Season 2 is coming,” along with a short reveal video (see below).According to estimates from Nielsen — Netflix doesn’t officially release viewership statistics, so any numbers are extrapolations based on audio-recognition technology that “listens” to viewers’ TVs — Lost in Space (which premiered on April 13) drew more than 6 million viewers in its first three days, 1.2 million of which binged all the way through the series’ 10 episodes.Those numbers qualify Lost in Space as the third-biggest debut in Netflix history, behind only the second season of Stranger Things (nearly 16 million!)and Bright, a Will Smith fantasy-buddy-cop flick (around 11 million).

Keyboards in Apple's laptops has been controversial ever since the new type of shallow keys with a so-called fjärilsmekanism (”butterfly " switches”) was introduced in the Macbook in the year 2015.According to unconfirmed data is keyboards much more prone to breakage, among other things, to the dirt and crumbs easily penetrates the keys and make the unusable.the Site Appleinsider has in its own investigation shown to the keyboards in the Macbook Pro 2016 breaks double as often as previous models, while the Macbook Pro 2017 is slightly better.However, the 2017-model not been on the market for as long, which makes the comparison somewhat unfair.Now reports to Appleinsider that several people have joined together and sued Apple for the keyboards in the Macbook and Macbook Pro in California, USA.According to the lawsuit should Apple have known about the problems with the keys, but to do something about it, and the plaintiff in the lawsuit now want compensation for their broken computers.
With any luck, in the coming years, the 1980s cult classic The Last Starfighter will make a comeback.Until then, we can live vicariously through this wonderful piece of art and hope for more like it.Artist Barry Blankenship created this super cool piece called “Starfighter Fields Forever” for his two-person show with Dave Quiggle at Gallery 1988 in Los Angeles, California.It’s available in a regular edition, variant edition and, as of publication, an original drawing too.We love this piece because it works on so many levels.Obviously, first and foremost, it’s paying homage to The Last Starfighter by recreating and duplicating the the standup arcade machine at the centre of the film.
Galway Loses Out on Tech Giant Data Centre.The construction of a proposed £742 million Irish data centre has been cancelled by Apple, just days before the country’s courts were due to hear an appeal from protesters who aimed to stop the first phase of building.Apple announced in 2015 that it would build a 44-acre data centre in Athenry, Co Galway.The data centre would be built in a rural part of Ireland and was projected to bring over 300 jobs to the local area during the construction phase.Apple planned to maintain a staff of a 150 technical workers over an ongoing basis.Noting their disappointment Apple said in a statement before a supreme court hearing on Thursday that they would not continue with plans to build the centre.
When Hawaii’s Kilauea volcano began erupting last Thursday, sending lava streaming from a fissure in the ground into the Leilani Estates subdivision, Demian Barrios was one of the first professional photographers on the scene.A self-described "volcano chaser," Barrios parked his truck about 500 feet up the street from where the lava was shooting into the air, unpacked his drone, and flew it out over the eruption."It was probably one of the most breathtaking initial images from a drone that I’ve ever seen," Barrios says."I’d never actually witnessed a fissure eruption before, and I just sat there and looked at it for a few minutes before I took the photos."Making sure to keep the drone about 300 feet above the ground—last year he flew a drone too close to a different volcano, melting the gimbal and camera lens—Barrios navigated around plumes of noxious smoke to capture an unobstructed birds-eye image of an angry red fissure snaking through the jungle landscape.Barrios considers the shot one of the finest he’s taken in almost two decades of volcano chasing—a pastime that's quickly becoming more than a hobby.
With the amount of basic stuff that gets leaked pre-launch, you'd almost think that phone companies did it on purpose for whatever reason.Either that or leakers are just that good at sneaking stuff off and slowly releasing it to the public instead of dumping it all at once.The OnePlus 6 has been no different, and now we've got some CAD renders that show off the phone in a slightly clearer way than the leaked photos.The renders come from a collaboration between CompareRaja and @OnLeaks, and while they're not proper photos it does mean we get a proper look at the handset from a bunch of different angles.There's not a whole lot there that we haven't already seen, but we do get a closer look at the notch and the different sides of the camera.Compare Raja's specs also mention a 6.28-inch AMOLED display with 2280 x 1080 resolution, a dual lens camera with 20 and 16 megapixel lenses, a 16MP front facing camera, a 3,300 mAh battery with support for OnePlus's Dash Charge 2.0, and variants bundled with withe 6GB or 8GB of RAM, plus 128GB or 256GB of storage.
