1 Martin Shkreli has been suspended from Twitter for targeted harassment of a reporter

In July 2016, Twitter permanently banned Breitbart tech editor and infamous right-wing troll Milo Yiannopoulos after a period of targeted harassment against Ghostbusters star Leslie Jones. The situations were similar in that much of the harassment came from other accounts, spurred on and encouraged by Yiannopoulos in the same way that Shkreli has been encouraging his followers. Dorsey responded directly to a tweet from Jones at the time — so if you don’t want to be harassed on Twitter’s platform I guess you can always hope things get bad enough (or you’re famous enough) that you can get the CEO’s ear.

Mark Hamill has begun dubbing Donald Trump’s tweets as the Joker

Hamill seems to have been inspired by writer and actor Matt Oswalt, who mused on Twitter that someone should create an App that transforms Trump’s tweets into Hamill’s voice for the Joker. Hamill was more than willing to take up the challenge, writing that “Nobody writes better super-villain dialogue than #Trumputin.”

Google’s new self-driving minivans will be hitting the road at the end of January 2017

When it spun off Waymo in early December, Google essentially conceded that it dropping its plan to build its own car, instead refocusing its efforts on making the hardware and software needed to power self-driving. It may be too soon to say that Google is abandoning its plans to build a fleet of driverless cars without steering wheels and pedals. Previously, Krafcik made it clear that Waymo “is not a car company, there’s been some confusion on that point. We’re not in business of making better cars, we’re in the business of making better drivers.”

Berlanti and David Goyer have just started working on the Constantine series in the past few weeks.

Inside Sears' death spiral: How an iconic American brand has been driven to the edge of bankruptcy

Lampert, a former Wall Street prodigy, took control of Sears more than a decade ago and became its CEO in 2013. But he's rarely seen in the office, typically visiting about once a year for the shareholder meeting and projecting into videoconference rooms at Sears' Hoffman Estates, Illinois headquarters the rest of the time, according to interviews with employees. He prefers to stay on Indian Creek Island off the coast of Miami, behind a desk dressed up with the Sears logo. The island has been dubbed the "billionaire bunker," partly because of a private police force that protects the island's 86 residents.

Meryl Streep is the moral compass the world needs now

One more thing: Once when I was standing around on the set one day, whining about something, we were gonna work through supper or the long hours or whatever, Tommy Lee Jones said to me, 'Isn't it such a privilege, Meryl, just to be an actor?' Yeah, it is, and we have to remind each other of the privilege and the responsibility of the act of empathy. We should all be very proud of the work Hollywood honors here tonight. As my friend, the dear departed Princess Leia said to me once, 'take your broken heart, make it into art.' Thank you, Foreign Press."

If you're going on a Samsung VR flight, don't wear a dress

To show people even more of what virtual reality can do, Samsung's been offering 4D VR rides at trade shows, its New York office and other venues that make you physically feel the virtual reality videos you're watching on a Gear VR. You strap on the VR device as you sit in a special seat that uses hydraulics to physically simulate the virtual twists and turns of a roller coaster or Santa's sleigh. You get jerked back and forth, making it feel like you're on a real ride.

The iPhone at 10: It changed everything

Two years before the launch of the iPhone, I gave a talk about mobile phone gaming and showed the audience a motorcycle racing game running on an old Samsung feature phone. It was one of the first phones to feature haptic technology, so the phone vibrated with the game. The screen was tiny and the sound tinny, but it was a big hit. People clearly wanted to play games on their mobile phones. With its large screen, myriad sensors and, for the time, larger speaker, few smartphones at the time were more perfectly built for mobile gaming than the iPhone.

This is the highway you will be driving on in 20 years

has developed roadways consisting of hexagonal, connected solar panels. To avoid destroying solar cells by painting highway lanes, LED road markers are fitted to the solar panels. By using LEDs, direct messages can be sent to drivers in a certain area, and the lane markings can change immediately if an accident occurs. Low energy heating implemented in the Solar Roadways can reduce the number of accidents occurred by slippery roads, as the temperature on the surface will stay above 32 °F.

The Best Unlocked Phones of 2016

Our most recent Editors' Choice picks for unlocked devices include the Apple iPhone 7 Plus, the Google Pixel XL, the ZTE Axon 7, and the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. The iPhone 7 Plus has a blazingly fast processor and dual rear cameras that may become more powerful with software updates as time goes on. The Pixel also has an excellent camera, and it'll be the first phone to get new Google software innovations. The ZTE Axon 7 has flagship performance and an all-metal body for only $399. And the Galaxy S7 Edge's screen stands out for its brilliant color and sharpness.

The Best of CES 2017

Faraday Future FF91 Faraday Future has only been around for two years, and has made our best of CES list for both of them. Last year it showed a non-functional dream car, the FFZERO1 , but this year the company has a prototype that actually works. The FF91 is a self-driving automobile that runs on a 130kWh battery to deliver up to 378 miles between charges. Throw in a zero-to-60 time of just 2.39 seconds, and you have one of the most innovative automobiles ever assembled. We say assembled, but it isn't exactly clear if Faraday Future will actually make these vehicles. (The company had to stop production on its factory late last year because of cash flow problems.) Faraday Future is taking pre-orders for the FF91 now, along with a $5,000 deposit. The earliest the FF91 will ship is 2018 and there's final price yet. And then there is the fact we have no idea if its actually smart enough to safely navigate public roads. Any way you look at it, the Faraday Future FF91 is a long shot. Then again, we said the same thing about Tesla. —Dan Costa

Bloomberg U.S. Startups Barometer

Methodology: The Bloomberg U.S. Startups Barometer measures both the occurrence and level of historical and recent venture activity for U.S.-based startups excluding biotechnology. The index is a gauge of startup activity that equally considers capital raised, deal count, first financings, and exit count. Each of the input factors is normalized for its historical volatility and then the normalized factors are combined in equal proportions to form a normalized index for constructing this barometer.

VW's I.D. Buzz concept is a self-driving, electric microbus

For drivers, the Buzz borrows features like the augmented reality HUD and touch-sensitive steering wheel found in the I.D concept . The center console is also something VW is calling the "I.D. Box," which serves as the control panel for the driver as well as a detachable Bluetooth sound system that can be used outside the vehicle. But the real fun comes with Volkswagen's I.D. Pilot autonomous driving mode -- when engaged, the steering wheel retracts, the front seats can be turned around 180 degrees and the I.D. Box actually slides towards the rear so the folks up front can join the party in the back.

So Many Things Are Forbidden in The Handmaid's Tale Trailer

Adapted from the classic novel by Margaret Atwood, “The Handmaid’s Tale” is the story of life in the dystopia of Gilead, a totalitarian society in what was formerly the United States. Facing environmental disasters and a plunging birthrate, Gilead is ruled by a twisted fundamentalism in its militarized ‘return to traditional values’. As one of the few remaining fertile women, Offred (Elisabeth Moss) is a Handmaid in the Commander’s household, one of the caste of women forced into sexual servitude as a last desperate attempt to repopulate the world. In this terrifying society, Offred must navigate between Commanders, their cruel Wives, domestic Marthas, and her fellow Handmaids – where anyone could be a spy for Gilead – all with one goal: to survive and find the daughter that was taken from her.

Uber starts offering ridesharing data to cities

Cities and taxi companies frequently portray Uber as a threat , but the ridesharing outfit is now promising to give something back. It's launching a website, Uber Movement, that will offer some transportation data that cities can use to improve their transit systems. It'll reveal the historical time it takes to travel between neighborhoods, helping local governments that want to understand how major events and road closures affect traffic.

Nvidia is working with Audi to get you a self-driving car by 2020

Audi and Nvidia have worked together before , but the new partnership, announced by Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang on stage at CES 2017 , will see the companies working to produce a “Level 4” automatic vehicle — that means a car capable of driving entirely on its own. As an early proof of concept, the two companies have already collaborated on a experimental self-driving Q7 SUV. Nvidia says the car — which is on display at CES — learned to drive itself in just four days, using its AI technology.

https://yro.slashdot.org/story/17/01/08/2235248/uber-gives-cities-free-travel-time-data?utm_source=slashdot&utm_medium=twitter

Uber is going to make urban traffic and mobility data gleaned from its millions of drivers and riders using the Uber app freely available to all. The data, which shows anonymized travel times between points in cities, will be available on a public website called Uber Movement . Uber says it will first invite planning agencies and researchers to access the information and then make the website free to the public... The San Francisco-based company decided to release the data when it realized it had "this very valuable but untapped resource for understanding a city's transportation infrastructure," said Andrew Salzberg, Uber's head of transportation policy... Pegged to a transportation conference in DC on Sunday, the release is also likely is a bid to gain some goodwill with cities, with which Uber has often had bare-knuckled fights over regulation... Uber Movement doesn't map individuals rides, but rather segments of rides, focusing on travel time between specific points... The Uber data will give cities a low-cost way to do high-resolution travel time analysis

Faline, named after a character from Bambi, had recently gone missing for longer than usual. Mcgaughey believes that authorities were tipped off when the family posted notices on social media.

For starters, Petit and Sarkeesian shared thoughts about more empathetic and complex approaches to relationships with non-player characters like The Last Guardian 's Trico, confrontations of real-world structural racism in Watch Dogs 2 and the tricky interactions in a risqué indie game called One Night Stand . Although there are some promising trends here, and 2016 was "a huge improvement" when it came to representations of men of color in gaming, Sarkeesian and Petit say there's still a ways to go before female protagonists start seeing equal playing time.

Automakers are slowing their self-driving car plans — and that could be a good thing

"I need to make it perfectly clear, [full autonomy is] a wonderful, wonderful goal. But none of us in the automobile or IT industries are close to achieving true Level 5 autonomy. We are not even close," Gill Pratt, the CEO of the Toyota Research Institute, said at CES. Level 5 is an industry term for cars that are fully autonomous and do not require human supervision.

Smart Vegas, Baby! Las Vegas and Ingenu kick off smart innovation district

It’s fair to say that Las Vegas is not intent on offering highly experimental, high-risk smart city strategies. “We want solutions to roll out quickly rather than wait for a three-year roll out,” Sherwood says. Thus, their focus is on familiar concepts like smart traffic, public safety, public services and tourist amenities, public transportation and preparation for autonomous transport. There’s a refreshing lack of ego in that they’ve made thoughtful consideration of cities before them and forged relationships with the Smart cities of Glasgow, Austin, and San Jose.
