Apple is migrating Macs from Intel to Apple Silicon. What does this mean when it comes to support for Intel’s all-new Thunderbolt 4 standard? Here’s what we think, know and imagine.What is Thunderbolt 4?
Intel has introduced what it says is its “truly universal” Thunderbolt 4 I/O specification. At 40Gbps, it’s no faster than the existing Thunderbolt technology used by Apple, but it offers more capabilities and USB-4 spec compliance.To read this article in full, please click here
Satellite observations of Jezero crater on Mars, the chosen landing site for NASA’s next rover mission, have revealed evidence of minerals that are exceptionally good at preserving traces of ancient life, making this an even better place to send the rover than initially thought.If primitive life existed on Mars billions of years ago – and that’s still a big if – there’s an excellent chance the fossilised remains of this life could be found in Jezero crater, according to two recent studies.This is great news, given that NASA’s yet-to-be-named 2020 rover will be launched to this exact spot next year.That Jezero crater is an excellent target for the rover is hardly a surprise, as it was carefully chosen by NASA owing to its potentially life-friendly properties, or at least its former potentially life-friendly properties.Billions of years ago, this 49-kilometre-wide (30-mile) crater was brimming with water from a large nearby watershed and its associated rivers.Accordingly, NASA wants the 2020 rover to explore clay minerals in the crater and examine its sediment layers, but the latest research points to some other tantalising targets.

Following a controversial data-sharing project within the National Health Service (NHS) in the UK, the search engine giant has partnered with the second-largest health system in the United States, St Louis-based Ascension, to collect and analyze the health records of millions of patients.According to a report in the Wall Street Journal, which claims to have seen confidential internal documents confirming the move, Google already has the personal health information of millions of Americans across 21 states in a database.The project is codenamed Project Nightingale and according to the WSJ, over 150 Google employees have access to the records of tens of millions of patients.But Google is relying on a legal justification that says hospitals (under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996) are allowed to share data without telling patients if that data is used to “only to help the covered entity carry out its health care functions.”Google is using the data - which covers everything from lab results to doctor diagnoses to hospitalization records and connects it to patient names and their dates of birth - to develop new software that purports to use artificial intelligence and machine learning to provide valuable insights into health issues and even predict future health issues for individuals.The whole approach may seem oddly familiar to Reg readers: we have extensively covered an almost identical scheme in the UK called DeepMind in which Google was found to be storing and analyzing data on over a million patients following a data-sharing agreement with the Royal Free Hospital.
You may have to wait longer than rumored for Apple’s augmented reality headset, according to the latest leaks, with the AR wearable said to be unlikely to debut until 2022 at the earliest.Even then, sources familiar with the Cupertino company’s plans suggest, you may want to wait until version two the following year before you open your wallet.Chatter around Apple’s work on augmented reality has circulated for several years, even before the first release of ARKit.Most recently, suggestions that it could be as soon as 2020 when the company launches its smart glasses.Led by Apple Vice President Mike Rockwell, who heads the company’s AR/VR work, the presentation is said to have taken place at the Steve Jobs Theater at Apple Park, with roughly 1,000 people present.The wearable is currently codenamed N301, it’s said, and apparently looks akin to a slimmer Oculus Quest.
At the WIRED25 Festival in San Francisco on Friday morning, WIRED editor in chief Nicholas Thompson recalled being interviewed earlier this year for a story on how LinkedIn had managed to avoid becoming a “hot mess” like so many other social media platforms.He said at the time that it likely had something to do with the way that LinkedIn profiles are tied to users’ real world identities, which disincentivizes bad behavior, but that his opinion on the matter changed after the story was published.“Because I was quoted in the story, I was tagged in all of the replies,” Thompson explained during an on-stage interview with LinkedIn CEO Jeff Weiner.“And the thing that came in the replies is that there are a ton of women who feel like public conversations on LinkedIn may be great, but they are harassed like hell in private messages.”He asked Weiner how LinkedIn has responded to the feedback, and what has changed since.Weiner didn’t have a specific answer.
Robots have a hard time performing some tasks that humans take for granted.Tasks like reaching behind objects on a shelf to get the one required for a job that situated in the back without disturbing other items on the shelf is an example of a task easy for humans.That sort of task is a challenge for robots, but MIT has a new robot that offers a solution to this challenge.Engineers at MIT have developed a robot designed to extend a chain-like appendage that is flexible enough to twist and turn in any needed configuration.While the robot the MIT team developed is flexible, it’s also rigid enough to support heavy loads or apply torque to assemble parts in tight spaces.When the tasks is complete, the appendage can be retracted and extended again at a different length to suit the next job.

Every Star Wars conversation I've had since December 2017 leads to an inevitable question: "What did you think of The Last Jedi?"The ongoing negativity surrounding Disney's impact on a galaxy far, far away continues to astound me, and in the wake of the final trailer for The Rise of Skywalker, I can't help but feel like I live in a different world than all those angry fans.That glorious cackle at the end of the first Rise of Skywalker trailer revealed that my favorite Star Wars character had cheated death and would terrorize a new generation of heroes.The Mandalorian, a live-action TV show focusing on a group that's never even named in the movies, is hitting Disney Plus in a few weeks, along with the badass-looking Jedi: Fallen Order game.Resistance is bringing us on fun adventures, and more of the flipping amazing Clone Wars is coming next year.I've been enchanted with this universe since my mum gave me a copy of the original movie 's novelization, which I consumed shortly before the special editions hit theaters.

Hours after HBO pulled the plug on one Game of Thrones prequel series it had in development, the network gave a straight-to-series order to a different one.On Tuesday, HBO picked up House of the Dragon, which is set 300 years before the events of Game of Thrones.The series is co-created by author George R.R.Martin, whose fantasy novel series, A Song of Ice and Fire, was adapted into the HBO hit show.HBO programming president Casey Bloys made the announcement during the WarnerMedia investor day, as the company unveiled new details about the upcoming HBO Max streaming service.House of the Dragon is based on Martin’s book, Fire & Blood, and tells the story of House Targaryen, which once ruled the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros.
Microsoft is gearing up to make a big play for game streaming, and while the more well-known part of that might be Project xCloud, there’s another component worth paying attention to in Xbox Console Streaming.With this feature, Xbox One owners can stream the games they own from their home console to a smartphone, allowing them to access their games when they’re away from home.Today, Xbox Console Streaming entered testing for US and UK Xbox Insiders in the Alpha and Alpha Skip-Ahead rings.If you’re in one of those rings and you’ve got the required hardware, you can take Xbox Console Streaming for a spin yourself and get a taste of the feature before it rolls out to a larger audience.If, on the other hand, you’re an Xbox Insider and you aren’t in one of those rings, you’ll need to sit tight as Microsoft says this preview will expand to more rings soon.Xbox Console Streaming requires a phone or tablet running Android 6.0 or higher that’s compatible with Bluetooth 4.0.
When cyclones or other massive oceanic storms make landfall, their giant waves batter coastlines and sometimes cause widespread damage.Now, an international team of researchers has analyzed months of data of large nearshore waves to provide new insights that could help improve the designs of a variety of coastal structures from seaports to seawalls to better withstand destructive waves.In the study published October 28 in the journal Scientific Reports, the researchers report combining a mathematical model to describe the formation of large waves with real-world measurements taken in shallow waters just off of the coast of Ireland, where waves have been reported to hit the shore with enough force to move 100-ton rocks."In this work we have analyzed real data in order to show that, over the course of several months measuring different storm events, we find that the extreme waves that we have observed in the coastal data tend on average to be smaller than the rogue waves we have observed in deep water, but they have similar characteristics," said Francesco Fedele, a associate professor in the Georgia Tech School of Civil and Environmental Engineering."These large nearshore waves are still caused by constructive interference - the effect of waves coming in all different directions and basically meeting at one point and piling up to form a large wave, and by second order nonlinearities that distort the sinusoidal shape of waves to have sharper crests and shallower troughs " Fedele said.The research team also included M. Aziz Tayfun, professor emeritus from Kuwait University, Frederic Dias, a professor at the University College Dublin, and James Herterich, a postdoctoral associate, aksi at the University College Dublin.
After first announcing the project last year, Chinese tech giant Tencent has been given the go-ahead by the country’s tax officials to create blockchain-based invoice standards.The invoices will be created as part of a project called “General Framework of DLT-Based Invoices,” which is also being supported by several other countries including the UK, Switzerland, Sweden, and Brazil, Global Times reports.Tencent will be working with the China Academy of Information and Communications Technology, and the taxation bureau in Shenzhen (in South China‘s Guangdong Province) to launch the novel invoicing system.“The project shows China‘s industry and market activity in blockchain tech application,” Li Ming, director of the Blockchain Research Department at the China Electronics Standardization Institute, told the Global Times.“E-invoicing is an appropriate field for blockchain application probes and trials, which could, in turn, promote tech development,” Li said.By leveraging blockchain technology, China will seek to counteract fake receipts, which are typically purchased from specialized sellers looking to make a quick buck.
