Tinder bans man for life for sending woman racist message | Technology | The Guardian

 

Tinder has very publicly banned a man for life after he racially abused an Asian woman.

Screenshots of text messages the man sent to a woman he met on the dating app circulated this week, drawing widespread condemnation. They show him lose his temper after the woman stops responding, using a racist term of abuse and saying: “Next time don’t give our your number dumb cunt.”

After the messages were posted on Facebook, other women came forward saying they too had experienced abuse and harassment from the same man.

AImotive aims to convert regular cars into driverless ones inexpensively | Technology | The Guardian

 

The AImotive office is in a small converted house at the end of a quiet residential street in sunny Mountain View, spitting distance from Google’s headquarters. Outside is a branded Toyota Prius covered in cameras, one of three autonomous cars the Hungarian company is testing in the sleepy neighbourhood. It’s a popular testing ground: one of Google’s driverless cars, now operating under spin-out company Waymo, zips past the office each lunchtime.

While other autonomous car projects, including those from Waymo and Uber, rely on an expensive (but very useful) radar-like system called Lidar for depth perception and obstacle detection (as well as cameras for seeing the colour of traffic lights and signs), AImotive is trying to do the same using regular cameras combined with artificial intelligence. This means the company can convert a regular car into a driverless one for a fraction of the price – around $6,000 – as opposed to $70,000-$100,000.

Brooklyn-based filmmakers Mika Altskan and Matvey Fiks follow street photographer Daniel Arnold over three days and across the five boroughs as the photographer homes in on his subjects—teenagers lifting weights in an alleyway, grandmothers gossiping on a boardwalk bench, a father who pantomimes throwing his son in a trash can—depicting the diverse, chaotic energy of the city, and Arnold’s method of capturing the moments that can slip past others in all of their humanity-revealing glory.

Här är tangentbordet som Apple borde ha gjort

Här är tangentbordet som Apple borde ha gjort

Här är tangentbordet som Apple borde ha gjort

Apple tillverkar ett litet, trådlöst tangentbord och har bara ett fullstort, med sladd. Av outgrundlig anledning så envisas Apple också att göra vina externa tillbehör inom det här området i vitt och i ljus aluminium.

Det här är det tangentbord som Apple borde ha gjort – svart, grått, trådlöst, eller i vitt, eller i guld eller i rosa guld.

Aluminum + Bluetooth + Backlit = Awesome.
We’ve taken Apple’s iconic aluminum keyboard design to the next level… Multi-pairing Bluetooth connectivity, a 1?year battery life AND backlighting — with a separate dedicated rechargeable battery just for the backlight — so the keyboard (and you) can still keep working, even after the backlight battery runs dry.

TOP HIGHLIGHTS
Bluetooth Wireless Connection
Integrated Numerical Keypad
Mac-Compatible Function Keys

IT-paradiset tar strid mot nya inreseförbudet | SVT Nyheter

 

Silicon Valley är den plats i USA där företag protesterade mest högljutt mot Donald Trumps tidigare inreseförbud. Nu väntas ett nytt förbud presenteras, och IT-paradiset gör sig redo att slåss ännu en gång.Under måndagen väntas Donald Trump skriva under ett nytt inreseförbud, som ska vara en uppdaterad version av det förbud som presenterades i januari. Det blev hårt kritiserat och stoppades i domstol. Silicon Valley ligger söder om San Francisco i Kalifornien och är ett centrum för dator- och elektronikindustrin i USA. Tillsammans med närliggande områden har Silicon Valley blivit ett näringslivsbegrepp för innovationer och tekniska framsteg inom IT.
