Android 11 just launched this week for Pixel devices and phones from OnePlus, Xiaomi, Oppo, and Realme, and now Google has detailed its counterpart designed for low-powered devices: Android 11 (Go edition).
One of the biggest new features is that Android 11 (Go edition) is supposed to work on devices with 2GB of RAM or less — a bump up from Android 10 (Go edition), which was made for devices with less than 1.5GB of RAM. But it’s unclear exactly which devices will get that upgrade right now.
We asked Google repeatedly, but it would not give us a clear answer. The company did say Android 11 (Go edition) will work with “all devices with up to 2GB of memory” sometime next month, but it's not clear if that's new devices, old devices, or a...
The company didn't share any hardware specs, however

(University of California - San Diego) Scientists at UC San Diego have discovered a new anode material that enables lithium-ion batteries to be safely recharged within minutes for thousands of cycles. Known as a disordered rocksalt, the new anode is made up of earth-abundant lithium, vanadium and oxygen atoms arranged in a similar way as ordinary kitchen table salt, but randomly. It is promising for commercial applications where both high energy density and high power are desired, such as electric cars, vacuum cleaners or drills.

Lyft said it's planning to shut down its app in California Thursday at midnight.
The move comes after Uber and Lyft lost a lawsuit brought by the state's attorney general. A judge said drivers must be classified as employees.
California accounts for about 16% of Lyft's overall business, the company said this month.
Lyft's stock price plummeted as much as 8% after the announcement.
Uber has also threatened to shut down in the state, but had made no decision at the time of Lyft's announcement.

Lyft will shut down its app in California at 11:59 p.m. local time Thursday unless a judge grants its request for more time to appeal a ruling that and Uber must classify their drivers as employees.
"Lyft cannot comply with the injunction at the flip of a switch," John Zimmer, Lyft's president, said last week during an earnings call. "Reclassifying tens of thousands of self-employed drivers would be a significant challenge in normal times. And in the current pandemic environment, that would be nearly impossible."
The move comes after the two ride-hail companies lost a lawsuit brought by California's attorney general, accusing them of not complying with AB-5, the recently passed law that codifies how companies can delineate contractors from employees. The state said drivers must be considered employees; the companies maintain they are independent contractors.
It's not clear when Lyft might resume service in the state, and it's still possible a judge could rule in the company's favor on Thursday.
Shares of the Lyft sank about 4.5% in trading Thursday after the announcement.
"This is not something we wanted to do, as we know millions of Californians depend on Lyft for daily, essential trips," the company said in a blog post.
In November, Californians will vote on Proposition 22, which Uber and Lyft, alongside other gig-work firms, have supported as an alternative to current labor laws. The measure would create a pooled fund to pay for healthcare, overtime, and other benefits for workers that would follow them between apps and jobs. It would also allow workers to retain the flexibility that an overwhelming majority of them say is the biggest plus of the work.
Uber has also threatened to shut down in California if the court does not rule in its favor on Thursday.
"We can't go out and hire 50,000 people overnight," CEO Dara Khosrowshahi said at an event hosted by Recode on Thursday. "All of our model, everything that we have built, is based on this platform that brings earners and people who want transportation and delivery together. You can't flip that stuff overnight. It'll take time and we're going to figure out a way to be in California.
"We want to be in California, but if the court case comes in then we'll have to shut down," he continued. "We've got the best engineers in the world figuring out how we can rebuild this thing."

Renaissance Technologies sold its Apple and Amazon stakes and ramped up its Tesla investment last quarter, a regulatory filing shows.
Jim Simons' quantitative hedge fund likely raked in $600 million to $900 million by selling the two tech stocks.
RenTech also raised its Tesla stake by 44% after slashing it by 80% in the first quarter.
Moreover, the fund increased its Zoom position by 160%, making the startup one of its five most valuable holdings.

Renaissance Technologies, one of the largest and most successful hedge funds in history, cashed out its Apple and Amazon stakes and boosted its position in Tesla last quarter, according to a regulatory filing.
RenTech, a quantitative hedge fund founded by Cold War codebreaker and MIT math professor Jim Simons, sold its roughly 193,000 Amazon shares and 979,000 Apple shares in the three months to June 30.
It probably raked in a total of $600 million to $900 million, based on the two stocks' trading ranges in the period. The sales will fuel concerns that the tech titans, which have skyrocketed in value this year, are overpriced and set to retreat.

RenTech, which relies on algorithms to make many of its trading decisions, also lifted its stake in Tesla by 44% to 1.1 million shares. The move is a swift reversal for the fund, given it owned 3.9 million shares in Elon Musk's electric-car company at the end of December 2019, only to sell 80% of them in the first quarter of this year.
Even so, Tesla was RenTech's 10th most valuable holding at the end of June, up from its 42nd biggest at the end of March. Its rise up the ranks reflected the share purchases and Tesla's stock price more than doubling last quarter.
RenTech's other notable trades included boosting its stake in Zoom Video Communications by about 160% to 7.3 million shares. Those were worth $1.8 billion at the end of June, meaning the video-conferencing platform was the fund's fourth-biggest holding.
