On Twitter recently appeared a video up that gives a close look at Apple's self-driven car, known as Project Titan.the Video shows a whole system of cameras and radar technology which shall allow the car to move forward for yourself, and probably see it a little bit more sophisticated like this time compared with the first images we saw on Apple's self-driven technology.Everything is assembled in a chassis of ”Apple-ig white plastic,” as The Verge noted first.Going to need more than 140 characters to go over 's Project Titan.I call it "The Thing" pic.twitter.com/sLDJd7iYSa— MacCallister Higgins (@macjshiggins) October 17, 2017

For the first time, scientists worldwide and at Penn State University have detected both gravitational waves and light shooting toward our planet from one massively powerful event in space -- the birth of a new black hole created by the merger of two neutron stars.This detection is important because it marks the beginning of a new era of "multi-messenger" as well as "multi-wavelength" space exploration -- an era when gravitational-wave detectors are triggering a global network of other types of instruments to focus their special detection powers simultaneously on one fleetingly explosive point in space.Hanna has served as co-chair of the Compact Binary Coalescence Group of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational Wave Observatory (LIGO), and is one of the primary data analysts involved in this research."Cody Messick -- a graduate student -- sent the first email to the broader collaboration notifying everyone of what had happened."Penn State's LIGO team, along with other members of the LIGO and Virgo collaborations, quickly alerted a worldwide network of observatories whose scientists then commandeered their telescopes and other detectors to look for more evidence.NASA's Swift, Hubble, Chandra and Spitzer missions, along with dozens of ground-based observatories, later captured the fading glow of the blast's expanding debris.

Long before Donald Trump was mocking “Little Rocket Man” in North Korea, or taunting “fools” in the Republican foreign-policy establishment, he expressed special contempt for one international agreement: the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, which blocked Iran from developing a nuclear weapon.After the Obama Administration signed the agreement, in 2015, then candidate Trump called it “the worst deal ever,” and vowed to “renegotiate” it once he was in office.At a negotiating session in Vienna, the coalition was so large that, for appearance’s sake, Iran stocked its side of the table with additional staffers.Jake Sullivan, one of the U.S. negotiators, recalled, “It was the whole world versus Iran.”The deal did not change all of Iran’s bad behavior: Tehran continued to test conventional ballistic missiles, to foment violence in Iraq and Syria, and to unjustly detain Americans.But the effect on its nuclear program was unquestionable.

This light show may look cool, but it also highlights one of the many ways future smart cities could harvest energy.Google is taking its reputation for coming up with tech-savvy bright ideas to the next level via a new collaboration with U.K.-based energy and data-harvesting pioneer Pavegen.The 26-square-meter installation involves a smart floor and 176 colored light panels.As visitors walk on the floor, their footsteps trigger a synchronized lighting display.The more energy that’s generated, the more responsive the wall becomes.“The generator technology is electromagnetic, like a bicycle dynamo, and converts the kinetic energy from your footstep into off-grid electricity,” Archie Wilkinson, project lead and head of Pavegen Live, told Digital Trends.

The Cambridge, Massachusetts-based company had raised more than $150 million after pricing its IPO at $16.By the end of trading Thursday, shares had gone up more than 72 percent, closing at $27.58.In a conversation earlier this morning with CarGurus CFO Jason Trevisan, he claimed that the business has become “the largest platform for both consumers and dealers to find a car.” He said that CarGurus has managed to sign up moe than 40,000 dealers on the platform, or more than 90 percent of the auto dealership businesses in the U.S.CarGurus does not make money per transaction.Instead, it’s a freemium model, with dealers paying for full functionality of the CarGurus platform.The company also has been building out its peer-to-peer marketplace, which does not currently generate revenue.

Comcast is increasingly making demands in TV programming contract negotiations that would force its smaller rivals to raise their minimum cable TV prices, a lobby group for small cable companies told the Federal Communications Commission yesterday.The American Cable Association (ACA), which represents nearly 800 small and medium-sized cable operators, asked the FCC to investigate the practice and prohibit it under its program access rules.Comcast wants to redefine the so-called "minimum penetration policy," essentially making it impossible for small cable companies to sell a cheap, basic tier of TV service that doesn't include higher-priced channels, the ACA alleged.ACA believes that it is no coincidence that the programmer adopting this restrictive policy—Comcast-NBCU—is a vertically integrated provider of MVPD [multichannel video programming distribution] and broadband Internet access services.While it interferes with its competitors' ability to offer consumers a broadcast basic tier of service, Comcast is aggressively marketing a bundle of networks very similar to the broadcast basic tier to its own customers through its Instant TV service.Comcast, the nation's biggest cable company with 22.5 million TV subscribers, said the FCC's program access and program carriage rules are "legacy regulations that constrain investment and innovation."

We appreciate that even people who grew up with Toy Story don’t regularly think about a world in which PlayStation controllers have kids, but we think you’ll agree that if they did, they'd probably look like Hori’s Wired Mini Gamepad (price TBC).The officially licensed pad, which also looks a bit like a Joy-Con on its side, retains all the important buttons from its full-size counterpart (or, as we’ve established, its Dad), but some have been shrunken down on account of the smaller form factor.It even has a teeny touchpad.Somewhat disappointingly, it’s a wired controller, but the cord is a manageable 3m long, and it’s clearly being aimed at younger players.That said, we dig the retro design and would think about picking one up when they go on sale in November.

Retail giant Amazon plans to give children aged 13-17 the ability to log into their own accounts under parental supervision, CNN Money reported on Tuesday.Teen accounts will be linked to parents’ main accounts, and will feature the ability to “either pre-approve each order via text or email (the default), set a spending limit for each order, or to automatically approve all purchases,” per CNN.According to Bloomberg, parents’ Prime benefits will roll over to their children’s accounts, including benefits like streaming, gaming and shipping.Each purchase will also result in a receipt being sent to the parent—though they would only have 30 minutes to decline the order.The teen accounts will not contain parents’ credit card information, or allow them to see their parents’ browsing or purchase history.Basically, it sounds like at least a moderately secure system for enabling teens to purchase merchandise online using your credit card—given that any truly resourceful or terrible enough teen could probably already be racking up secret charges anyhow.

Recently, Amazon's Echo Show smart speaker (the company's first Echo with a screen) had its built-in YouTube app removed by Google.The search engine giant cited poor app implementation on Amazon's part and a "broken user experience" as their primary motivations behind the move but with the company reportedly developing their own Show competitor (codenamed "Manhattan"), there could be more to the story.This mystery device will supposedly include many of the same features the Show already has (including YouTube playback) while also acting as a smart home hub for various smart home devices.Regardless of Google's reasoning behind the decision, YouTube's removal hasn't sat well with a large portion of Show users, many of whom have taken to the device's reviews section on Amazon to vent their frustration.In what could be seen as an attempt to pull in more potential customers following the app's removal, Amazon has temporarily slashed the device's price down to $200 from $230.This is a nice gesture but it might not be a significant enough price reduction to sway future customers (and it does nothing to ease the concerns of existing Show owners).

Artificial intelligence, the major plot device in countless sci-fi films, is making it big in the entertainment industry.Recent breakthroughs in artificial intelligence and machine learning are helping Hollywood get even smarter about how it captures an audience, and the implications for your entertainment are staggering.In the brave new world of big data, neural networks, and human-computer interaction, there’s always something good on TV.The former concept has its roots in the earliest days of computing, when the idea of a self-teaching and self-programming computer was first postulated.Tech giants like Google, Facebook, Amazon, and Apple push the tech further each year, and now routinely use uploaded photos, social media profiles, and web activity as massive data pools.When you click through the “Because You Watched” row, a video-to-video similarity algorithm compares everything in the Netflix library.

It’s time to say goodbye for real this time.Windows Phone’s death has been slow and painful, but, as CNET spotted, the head of Microsoft’s Windows division finally admitted you shouldn’t expect anything more when it comes to Windows Phone.Microsoft doesn’t plan to let existing Windows Phone users down — there will be security updates.Joe Belfiore admitted that Microsoft isn’t working on any software or hardware update.Companies and indie developers simply don’t want to work on Windows Phone apps — most of them probably never cared in the first place.We have tried VERY HARD to incent app devs.

Those towering wind turbines that are slowly starting to cover the countryside across the world don’t just show up overnight—and they’re definitely not dropped in place by a helicopter.They arrive on trucks in pieces—staggeringly massive pieces—that test the skills of drivers navigating roads not designed to accommodate 200-foot long trailers.Even with the ability to independently steer the trailer’s rear wheels, watching this truck driver manoeuvre a gigantic wind turbine blade around a sharp 90-degree right turn, and then over a bridge, is a magnificent ballet to behold.I would almost certainly need a couple thousand back and forth attempts to pull this off, and by the time I got to the job site fusion reactors would have long since replaced wind power.
