The U.S. Department of Transportation has identified 10 sites as officially designated proving grounds for autonomous vehicle testing int he U.S., including The Willow Run, Michigan-based American Center for Mobility, Concord, California s GoMentum Station, the City of Pittsburgh and more.The sites are designed to help the locations share best practices and information, forming a core community that Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx hopes will help spur the collective progress of autonomous vehicle development.The list or proving grounds were narrowed from an applicant pool of over 60, which included a range of different types of organizations including privately held facilities, enter state transportation departments, municipalities and cities and academic institutions.The choices, in the end, were made by the DoT based on a number of factors, including a healthy mix of conditions and facility types, with the aim of building a final designee list that can provide a range of testing scenarios and share that data collaboratively with one another.Federal designation gives these initial pilot program members a chance to help set the national tone on autonomous vehicle and systems standard in the U.S.: They ll likely be instrumental in helping the DoT establish its further recommendations and guidelines for companies developing autonomous vehicle tech, and help establish the process through which self-driving arrives on U.S. roadways for consumer and commercial uses.Here s the full list of all 10 pilot designated proving grounds:

The Mustang is one of the most iconic cars in the world and, of course, is Ford s pride and joy.So naturally, when you own one of these prized coupes, you want to really own it and make it yours, leaving your personal mark, so to speak.While we are probably still ages away from mass-produced highly customizable cars, Ford is going to offer Mustang fans a compromise.With the new 2018 Mustang coming out later this year, buyers will be able to choose from a new range of colors, a dozen wheel options and, inside, their own personalized instrument cluster.That last bit is thanks to the 2018 Mustang s new 12-inch, all-digital dashboard screen.For each view, you can personalize everything you see and then, courtesy of Ford s intelligent MyMode feature, the system remembers all those settings, including suspension and steering, to reload them on your next drive.

SAN FRANCISCO AP -- After a relative suffered a heart attack a few years ago, Silicon Valley entrepreneur Adrian Aoun got an unsettling look at a health-care system that he diagnosed as an inefficient and outdated mess.It's called Forward, a health-management service that charges a $149 per month — roughly $1,800 a year — to tend to all of its patients' primary-care needs.And not just with attentive doctoring, either; Forward plans to deploy body scanners, sensors, giant touch-screen monitors, infrared devices and other high-tech gizmos that could make a doctor's appointment feel more like a trip to an Apple store."Doctors are super smart, but they are set up for failure in so many ways," Aoun says.Forward will still refer patients to outside specialists when its primary-care doctors can't deal with certain health problems; same goes for hospital admissions.That means Forward is unlikely to become a cure-all, especially because its membership fee isn't cheap, said Paul Ginsburg, a health-policy expert at the University of Southern California.

Many have certainly set a new year's resolution to change jobs in 2017.There is always a surge in recruitment after the holidays, and if you are prepared and keen so you can get first dibs on a number of new opportunities, " says Jamie Chafel.It's a great way to reconnect with former colleagues you've lost touch with, but who today might have a position that can open opportunities for you.The most common an employer do after they read your cv is to go into Linkedin and viewing your page, so it is important that the profile confirms the positive qualities that you have raised in your cv.You should also make sure that you are regularly expanding your contacts and ask for recommendations from colleagues and previous bosses.Make a list of companies that you are interested in, and follow them on Twitter so you don't miss the news from there.

Vi rapporterade i somras om att Mathem, som är störst i Sverige på livsmedel på nätet, hade planer på att börja sälja alkohol.Det tidigare beskedet från bolagets medgrundare Tomas Kull var att den svenska alkohollagstiftningen gjorde det svårt för Mathem att sälja alkohol.Hemleverans av alkohol är inget vi ska göra just nu , sa han till Breakit i augusti.Bolaget har nu löst saken genom ett samarbete med vinimportören Winefinder, som i sin tur använder sig av ett danskt bolag.Vinet beställs alltså på Mathems svenska sajt - men formellt sett går beställningen till Winefinders danska lager."Det här handlar i första hand om att förenkla vardagen för våra kunder.

Apple's reported push into original video content is "not compatible with its business model or culture," Apple analyst Horace Dediu told Business Insider.The Wall Street Journal report, which was published last week, said that the California-based technology giant has been talking to "veteran producers" about both original TV shows and movies, but Dediu doesn't think this move into content is voluntary.Instead, Apple is reacting to the fact that it's unable to license proprietary content from the likes of Amazon and Netflix on acceptable terms, Dediu said.It's not the first time the analyst has argued that Apple is not well-suited to being a content producer, and he attributes it to the fact that Apple wants to have global solutions but content is regional.Speaking at a UBS Tech Conference in November as a member of a panel of Apple experts, Dediu said:"Content is a huge problem to attack on a global scale.... Each region has a certain taste.A lot of things in content are local ...When you're dealing with content, it gets messy."Dediu isn't the only one to respond negatively to the report.

After months of speculation, following the release of a teaser trailer in October 2016, we finally have some concrete details about the Nintendo Switch.The Nintendo Switch will be a hybrid console that can be used at home on a TV, and also as a portable console similar to Nintendo s Game Boy and DS lines.Users who want to play local multiplayer games away from home can then detach the Joy-Con controllers from the sides of the Switch, and turn them sideways to become two discrete classic controllers similar Nintendo s Wii remote.The right Joy-Con controller features an IR camera which can detect distance and even discern simple hand-gestures, like telling Scissors from Rock in a game of Rock, Paper, Scissors.The Joy-Con controllers will also feature a Share button which will — at launch — allow users to share screenshots with the touch of a button.Performance, battery life, region lock

Yesterday I caught up with George Spencer, the 29 year-old CEO and founder of London property tech startup Rentify.Prior to Rentify, he worked as a software engineer, in brand marketing, and in strategy, where, in his own words, he tried in vain to motivate the British public to buy a lot more of a certain wheat-based breakfast cereal .Spencer is also quite possibly my biggest Twitter troll, not least when it comes to pointing out almost every typo I make.You d think he has a business to run.In our call, we talked about how Rentify is attempting to make life a lot easier for landlords by taking on much of the risk regards managing and letting out a property — with the help of technology, of course.And we touched on how difficult it is to scale a tech startup that still employs a lot of human labour.

Monopods are a more compact way to stabilize your camera, but unlike tripods, you can t just let go of the camera without disastrous consequences — or can you?Wednesday, Japanese photography support company Libec announced the Hands-Free Monopod, or HFMP.Like some other monopods, the HFMP attempts to merge the best of both worlds with three small legs at the bottom, but unlike other hybrid monopods, a new locking system means the rig can be left alone while still keeping gear upright.The HFMP s ability to hold heavier loads in a hands-free manner relies on a new free-standing base design at its base.A locking plate secures the support rig in place with a simple press of the foot.Unlocked, the HFMP functions like a normal monopod, tilting and even rotating to adjust composition quickly and add manual movements to video.

Withings' Ke rastase Hair Coach analyses the health of your locks as you brush.When Nokia said it had no plans to make mobile handsets again, that wasn't the end of its hardware ambitions: last year it bought Withings, a health devices company headquartered in France, for €170m as its way into the health and fitness market.The deal concluded in June last year, bringing together Withings' hardware capabilities with Nokia's own patient care and preventative health teams."We have a clear mission of accelerating the product roadmap, accelerating the delivery of new health solutions -- devices and applications -- and making sure the teams are working together on several fronts, not just technical, but the marketing and communications," Cédric Hutchings, Withings CEO before the acquisition and now Nokia's VP of digital health, told ZDNet.Having Nokia onboard gives Withings an opportunity to grow, he added: "Digital health is one of the biggest IoT verticals that has emerged and is very consistent with Nokia's vision and assets... it's about being able to scale with mass-market potential, the capacity to partner with large-scale strategic partnerships."The trend will lead towards using Nokia as a platform for our digital health activities," said Hutchings.
