Amazon is ready to funnel more than $10 billion into Project Kuiper, after it secured government approval to launch more than 3,000 broadband-beaming satellites into low orbit. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) voted unanimously (5-0) in favor of Amazon‘s bid, pitting the ecommerce giant squarely against Elon Musk’s SpaceX in the internet-from-space race. “In addition to providing ground station service directly to customers, Project Kuiper will also provide backhaul solutions for wireless carriers extending LTE and 5G service to new regions,” said Amazon in a press release. Amazon is yet to launch one of its own satellites First announced in April 2019, Project… This story continues at The Next WebOr just read more coverage about: Amazon

Specs for Samsung’s unannounced Tab S7 and Tab S7 Plus have leaked online, giving us an almost complete impression of what to expect from the company’s upcoming tablets.
WinFuture reports that the big difference between the Tab S7 and the Tab S7 Plus are the screens. The S7 Plus will reportedly have a 12.4-inch OLED display with a resolution of 2800 x 1752 and an in-display fingerprint sensor. The S7, meanwhile, is said to have a smaller 11-inch 2560 x 1600 LCD display and will have a side-mounted fingerprint sensor. Both screens will reportedly have a high refresh rate of 120Hz.
Elsewhere, the specs of the two tablets are very similar. WinFuture says they’ll both be powered by Qualcomm’s flagship Snapdragon 865 Plus processor, and will...

GM said that it would produce an all-electric Chevy pickup truck, with 400-plus miles of range.
A Chevy EV pickup would join a GMC Hummer pickup, as well as a lineup of new EVs from Cadillac and Buick.
Earlier this year, GM showcased its product plans, its electric future, and its Ultium battery technology.

Who killed the electric car? Infamously, General Motors — the automaker's discontinued EV1, a pioneering vehicle from the 1990s, was the fallen hero of a 2006 documentary.
But GM has more than made up for the presumed offense; in addition the Chevy Bolt EV, in market since late 2016, the company has declared that its future is electric and that 22 new electrified vehicles should be rolling out by 2023.
We already knew about a larger Bolt SUV, a GMC Hummer electric pickup, and the forthcoming Cadillac Lyriq EV. Now with the release of GM's 2019 Sustainability Report, we learn that a full-size, electric Chevy pickup is on the way, offering "offering 400+ miles of range on a single charge," GM indicated.
The electric pickup now looks to be the marquée products hitting roads and trails in the coming months. Tesla revealed its Cybertruck at the end of last year, startup Rivian has a pickup headed for manufacturing, and Ford is in the process of developing a hybrid F-150 as a precursor to an all-electric F-Series (we've already seen a prototype tow a million-pound load of freight train cars).
A full-size Chevy EV pickup should logically be badged as a Silverado, as Autoweek suggests, but who knows? Hummer came back as a GMC. So Chevy could play around with the nameplate.
Earlier this year, GM provided substantial insight into its Ultium battery technology and its overall electrification strategy going forward. That means a fleet of EV Caddys, Buicks, a Hummer SUV, and now a Chevy pickup. In the grand scheme of things, its an ambitious lineup that would give GM one of the largest EV portfolios in the industry.FOLLOW US: On Facebook for more car and transportation content!
