If the prospect of self-driving cars becoming a real thing makes you uncomfortable, you may want to avoid the M40 in 2019.Oxbotica, the Oxford-based autonomous car company is working on a fleet of self-driving cars that are able “to operate on public roads, with complete autonomy, within the next two and half years”, with a plan to do a demonstration route in 2019.Based out of the RACE test centre in Oxfordshire, Oxbotica is testing the fleet of cars on a site with over 10 kilometers of roads, complete with traffic lights, junctions, roundabouts and even pedestrian crossings.Oxbotica’s cars work using multiple cameras, so they’re able to ‘see’ where they are on the road, and lasers so that they can ‘sense’ what’s in their immediate surroundings.They will be tested in all weather conditions, interacting with pedestrians, cyclists and other vehicles.Once the initial testing is complete, the cars will run a route between London and Oxford to demonstrate the viability of the technology.

Controversial tech exec Travis Kalanick was forced into a face-off with Tim Cook, a new profile of the Uber founder claims, after Apple discovered the ridesharing app had flouted privacy rules.Indeed, Kalanick’s ambition almost saw him lose his entire iPhone audience.That brought him to Cupertino and a sit-down meeting with Tim Cook.Such data could be invaluable to a company specializing in disrupting the transportation business; however, it was also in direct contravention of Apple’s requirements for privacy.Despite Kalanick’s team doing their best to hide it, Apple had discovered the trick.[Update: Uber PR has pointed out that, rather than tracking the location of devices, the software remembered the individual iPhone; indeed, the NYT piece has been updated to remove mention of tracking and instead highlight the system’s use in fraud detection, albeit still contravening Apple’s policies in the process.

While some people march to make their voices heard by their governments over decisions they have made, or to make a stand for diversity in science, or simply to showcase that science as a profession is a global one and that international collaboration is key to it, I march in London because I want to ask everyone to question everything.If you speak to my mum and dad, they would probably tell you that I have always been a nano materials chemist, going by my diminutive size and my disposition to experiment.Whether it was mixing my Mum's lotions and potions in the bathroom sink, or pulling apart a plug or a vinyl turntable needle, I wanted to know how it worked.My Little Pony ought to be grateful that it was only her mane and tail that were fair game for my little experiments!Thankfully for Barbie, and indeed for the UK public, I chose to channel this curiosity into a career as a research scientist, working on clean energy materials and lecturing in chemical engineering, rather than medicine.Supporters of science and research gather to march in the March for Science protest in Sydney on April 22, 2017 in support of science, the first of more than 500 marches across the world (Photo credit: PETER PARKS/AFP/Getty Images)

Han lät närmast uppgiven när han berättade:“Mina utvecklare får två, tre nya jobberbjudanden – varje dag.Till på köpet gör många av de företag, som försöker rekrytera över hans personal, stora förluster samtidigt som hans eget bolag ända sedan starten visat vinst.HIttills har han byggt sitt bolag utan riskkapital men nu är han på väg att tänka om.I många fall är det en förutsättning för att skapa riktigt stora och framgångsrika företag.Det var väl investmentbanken GP Bullhound (som har mycket goda ingångar till Spotify-ledningen) som först lanserade teorin om att Facebook skulle köpa bolaget och nyligen hörde jag en annan investmentbank argumentera för samma sak.

Microsoft has confirmed that the next major Windows 10 update, codenamed “Redstone 3,” is slated to land this September.In the same blog post making the announcement, the firm promised to release major Windows 10 updates every March and September from here on out.Citing strong consumer feedback regarding the want for more predictability and stability from Microsoft’s Windows update model, Windows Commercial Marketing GM Bernardo Caldas stated that Microsoft is aligning its Windows 10 update schedule with that of its Office 365 ProPlus and System Center Configuration Manager products.The news comes after a general lack of clarity surrounding when previous major Windows 10 updates would drop, much less when they would hit a given customer’s device.While this won’t change anything about the latter issue, at least the regularity will be a welcome change.Caldas went on to write that Microsoft will support each of these major updates with security patches for 18 months after their deployment, which isn’t necessarily news, but a reminder in light of this announcement.

If you were to ask any sci-fi writer of yesteryear what the future was going to look like, flying cars would undoubtedly rank pretty high in the list of must-have accessories.Now it looks like that fantasy is finally within touching distance of becoming a reality.Flying car company Aeromobil has announced its first road legal flying car.At the Monaco luxury product event Top Marques the company unveiled its fourth generation of flying car, the first that will be commercially available.According to TechCrunch, pre-orders are due to open imminently, with delivery of the vehicle expected in 2020.You’re going to need pretty deep pockets to be one of the lucky few getting your hands on the first limited run though – the price starts at $1.3 million (about £1M UK, $1.7M AU) – and you'll need to have both a driver’s license and a pilot's license drive/fly it.

Space is big and the hardware that humans keep sending into the great beyond is comparatively small, but our habit of letting random bits of space vehicles, boosters, and defunct satellites hang around in orbit is starting to concern scientists more than ever before.Now, the European Space Agency is sounding the alarm and pleading with the space-traveling nations to pitch in and help clean up the estimated 150 million bits of debris with the capability to destroy or damage spacecraft that accidentally collide with them.“Today, we find in space roughly 5,000 objects with sizes larger than 1 metre (3.25 feet), roughly 20,000 objects with sizes over 10 centimetres… and 750,000 ‘flying bullets’ of around one centimetre (half an inch),” Rolf Densing, director of operations at the ESA said at a conference regarding space junk, held in Germany.“For objects larger than one millimetre (0.04 inch), 150 million is our model estimate for that.”The problem has gotten bad enough that some countries, like Japan, have been trying to find a way to clean up the junk with their own tools.Unfortunately, some technical difficulties held up that operation and proved to be a huge disappointment.

Schools, universities and education departments can greatly benefit from webinars, as they can simulate traditional classrooms without their time and space limitations.Our current realities point us to the fact that students are becoming more diverse in their learning situations.Many people, young and old alike, meanwhile, have found in the Internet a space to satiate interests and energies for learning, a place where they could have rapid interaction and almost instantaneous knowledge building and development.For these reasons, academic institutions are faced with the question: In this time and age of high-speed Internet and fast paced development, how could education departments offer a quality learning experience that marries time and space considerations with the almost limitless bounds and appeal of the Internet?As it may be a matter of sinking or swimming with the tide, academic institutions are increasingly keeping afloat with the aid of webinars.

While most of us would cringe at finding something that looks like an extra long bizarre black worm squirming around in the mud, scientists are thrilled they finally tracked down the elusive giant shipworm -- scientifically named Kuphus polythalamia.Even though it might look like a long worm, the shipworm is actually classified as a bivalve mollusk, like a clam or a mussel.The shipworm -- which measures 5 feet (155 cm) long and 2.3 inches (6 cm) in diameter -- is encased in a hard shell and lives underwater in the mud.Scientists were aware of the giant shipworm's existence for years, but no live specimen of the creature was available to study in a lab environment until now.After being spotted it in a TV program from the Philippines, five live specimens were each shipped inside PVC pipes to scientists, who filmed the unveiling of the shipworms from their hard shells as well as the dissections themselves.The scientific paper "Discovery of chemoautotrophic symbiosis in the giant shipworm Kuphus polythalamia (Bivalvia: Teredinidae) extends wooden-steps theory" published Monday in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences journal, reveals the scientists' unusual findings.

Even though it’s a 5.8-inch display on the S8 and a 6.2-inch display on the S8 , the handsets themselves are impressively compact.Gone is the physical home button and its accompanying app-switcher and back keys, replaced with a pressure-sensitive strip under the bottom edge of the screen that, when you press harder, summons virtual versions of those controls.Certainly, if you have 21:9 footage it doesn’t give you black bars top and bottom when you’re holding the S8 in landscape orientation.Otherwise, you get an error message about a partial print.This particular S8 review unit is a T-Mobile version, and as such gets a few preloaded apps of the carrier’s own: Device Unlock, the T-Mobile manager, Name ID, T-Mobile TV, and Visual Voicemail.Samsung may no longer call it TouchWiz, but its customized interface certainly traces its roots back to that love-it-or-hate-it UI.

According to Pew Research, only 27-percent of those over 65 had a smartphone (as of 2015).Without a smartphone, as you may have gathered, ordering an Uber is, or at least was, impossible.Founders Justin Boogaard and David Lung created the company after the former’s grandmother wanted to hail an Uber, but couldn’t without a smartphone.The wheels started turning, and collectively, the two strung together a scheme using a phone operator system that could book Uber rides for seniors — or others without a smartphone.If that sounds like a taxi, you’ve got the right idea.In 2016, Y Combinator funded the startup, while praising the founders for “solving an important problem for an aging population.” And it did solve a problem.

Nu kan mobila användare av samarbetsverktyget Dropbox Paper både redigera sina dokumet och skapa nya även utan internetuppkoppling.Vilket gör det möjligt att fortsätta arbetet även under en långflygning eller i tunnelbanan.När telefonen sedan kopplar upp sig mot nätet igen synkroniseras allt till användares utrymme.Den nylanserade funktionen finns i både IOS- och Android-versionen av Paper, men desktopanvändare får vänta eftersom Dropbox prioriterat mobila användare då de varit mest högljudda om behovet av ett offline-läge.Dropbox Paper lanserades i januari som ett led i Dropbox försök att hålla jämna steg med Googles G Suite på marknaden för samarbetsverktyg.Sedan dess har tjänsten fått sig en rejäl ansiktslyftning och stödjer idag hela 20 språk, däribland japanska och tyska, vilket är en signifikant förbättring från lanseringen då endast engelska stöddes.

The first batch of unfounded OnePlus 5 specs have started doing the rounds, including a 5.5-inch QHD display, Snapdragon 835 chipset, 3,000 mAh battery, 23 MP camera and a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor.Apparently the next OnePlus flagship will skip the number four due to its association with death in Chinese culture (phonetically the word for “four” sounds a lot like the word for “death”).OPPO also avoids the use of the number four, preferring to use 3, 5, and 7 in its device names instead.The OnePlus 5 price point may make this an impossibility, but considering how adapted we’ve become to various flagships having water-resistance, it’d be nice if OnePlus could squeeze an IP68 rating into the budget.Some would say OnePlus should get one camera at Pixel or Galaxy levels before slapping a second one on there and they’re probably right, but for a company that prides itself on delivering a flagship experience, a dual camera is a must have if you’re going to compete with (or beat) the best of the best this year.Some would say OnePlus should get one camera at Pixel or Galaxy levels before adding a second one.

Magic Leap has acquired FuzzyCube Software, according to sources, as part of a growing effort to create content for its eventual mixed-reality hardware.According to the sources, Magic Leap also considered buying Moonbot Studios, an animation firm behind some award-winning animations.That deal reportedly didn’t go through, though Magic Leap is said to have still managed to nab twelve of its animators and artists for its own products.The information comes from Business Insider, which reports that Magic Leap is gobbling up creators who will have a vital role in the company — creating awesome products that’ll be used by the company’s work-in-progress hardware.Whether Magic Leap has any specific creative projects already in the pipeline wasn’t stated.The talks with Moonbot are said to have taken place late last year, and to have ultimately fallen through due to a combination of financial strain and ‘complex’ problems with some of the studio’s intellectual property.

Based, as you’ve probably guessed, on the regular Rogue crossover, the one-off car has been made especially for the 2017 New York International Auto Show, which kicks off later this week.Unfortunately, that means you can’t just turn up at your local Nissan dealer and buy one yourself, at least not yet.Instead, Nissan is using the jacked-up crossover as an excuse to talk up the versatility of the regular 2017 Rogue, which you certainly can buy.It’s Nissan’s best-selling model, in fact, given the ongoing enthusiasm in the crossover segment in the industry generally.Nissan is making two different customs based on the car for this year’s New York show, though we’ll have to wait until later in the week to see the rest.Gone are the wheels, replaced with a set of Dominator Tracks from American Track Truck, Inc. Each is 48-inches long, 30-inches high, and 15-inches wide.
