Apple letter offers a clue to its self-driving car plans

In a statement to the Financial Times , Apple confirmed the letter's core message: the firm wrote to the NHTSA because it's "investing heavily in machine learning and autonomous systems," and it wants to help shape the "best practices" for self-driving cars. It's not confirming what it's making, however, including reports that it scaled back its automotive plans to focus on an underlying tech platform instead of building vehicles. There's no longer any doubt that Apple is interested in driverless cars, but there's also no guarantee that its technology will reach production cars in the first place, let alone that you'll see something Apple-branded on the road.

Smart Kalasatama  is a former industrial precinct that houses the  Suvilahti Power Plant . It’s gradually being turned into an experimental  platform to co-create smart infrastructure and services.

By the 2030s, the Kalasatama district will offer a home for approximately 20,000 residents and jobs for 8,000 people. Currently, 3,000 people live there in homes that are part of connected trials for future technology.

The Best Tablets of 2016

Screen Size and Storage This consideration is a bit obvious, but size—both screen real estate and storage capacity—is important to consider. First things first: When you hear the term "7-inch or 10-inch tablet," this refers to the size of the screen, measured diagonally, and not the size of the tablet itself. 7-inch tablets are considered small-screen, while 8.9-inch tablets and above are considered large-screen. Apple's iPads, Amazon's Fire, and Samsung's Note- and Tab-branded tablets all come in small- and large-screen iterations. And more than ever, phones are blurring the lines with tablets. Big smartphones (or phablets) like the 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus and the Galaxy S7 Edge are challenging the need to even carry a separate tablet.

The world's most expensive headphones might make you consider a mortgage

The HE 1's sound is far ahead of anything else, so I'm duty bound to warn headphone loving audiophiles to steer clear of auditioning the HE 1. It'll mess you up, and might make you consider taking out a second mortgage, or worse. From my days working as a high-end salesman, I know for the most affluent buyers price won't be an issue (they live really well) and I assure you $55,000 won't make even a tiny dent in their piggy banks.

Use this Apple tool to check if your iPhone 6S is eligible for a new battery | ZDNet

iPhone vs. iPod: Which one sounds better playing music?

I own an iPhone 6S and a sixth-generation 160GB iPod Classic, so I wondered, is the Classic a better-sounding device than my iPhone? Funny, I never got around to comparing them before, so I wasn't sure what to expect. The Classic design is nine years old, the 6S has newer and better digital converters, but since it's not a dedicated music player, there may have been design sacrifices favoring the 6S' primary job as a smart phone.

Pros and cons: Our quick verdict on the new Surface Book

The refreshed Surface Book has very few flaws, with a well-crafted chassis, comfortable keyboard, vibrant screen, fast performance and even longer battery life than on last year's model. As ever, you'll pay dearly for the privilege of owning it, and the relatively heavy weight and imbalanced weight distribution make it less portable than lighter systems. What you accept in heft, though, you'll make up for in both battery life and port selection.

iOS 10.1.1 Is Draining iPhone Batteries

As reports , the issue stems from how quickly the battery is draining coupled with the battery percentage readout no longer being accurate. For example, a battery with 80 percent charge left unused overnight is empty the following morning. Plugging it in reports 30 percent charge after a few seconds. However, unplugging when it says 100 percent sees the figure drop below 50 percent as soon as you unlock the iPhone.

How to Monitor and Improve Your MacBook's Battery Health

While your MacBook, MacBook Pro or MacBook Air itself can last you several years before it’s time to get a new one, the battery might not make it the entire way through. I bought my current MacBook Air five years ago and already replaced the battery once at the Apple Store. It didn’t die on me, but the health got so poor that I thought it was time for a fresh one.

The Loudest Possible Ways to Cheer for Your Team at a Sporting Event

It’s probably not surprising that an air horn is the loudest, but they cost $10 or more and eventually run out of air. A super kazoo on the other hand, is almost as loud, is powered by your own breath, and is super cheap ($4 to $5 apiece.) And if you don’t want to bring any noisemakers to the big game, get ready to scream your head off. Just be sure to take breaks and clap so you don’t hurt yourself.

But there are some things that aren't recorded by blueprints and photographs, and for many of these things there just isn't a way for the restoration team to find out what they were like. Some of these things include: knowing how the machine operated, how instructions were given, how to manage the punched paper ticket tapes, and even what noises it made. That's why the project brought together some of those who actually used the original machine in order to gain insight into how it operated on a day-to-day basis.

Apple tells feds ‘new entrants’ to auto industry should get same testing rights as incumbents

Perhaps most interestingly, though, Apple would like “new entrants” to the vehicle market to have “the same opportunity” that “established manufacturers” have when it comes to testing on public roads, “without pursuing exemptions” included in regulations known as the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards. But, Kenner pointed out, The Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act currently doesn’t allow for that.

With 23andMe's  ancestry reports, users have access to reports that break down the Ancestry Composition (which regions your genes most closely align with), haplogroups (a genetic population that shares a common ancestor), and a person's Neanderthal ancestry. They also get access to something called a DNA Relatives tool, which 23andMe users can opt into to connect them with other users. It also shows if they have close or distant relatives in the system. 23andMe is big on research and getting users to engage in its research.

Airbnb has settled its lawsuit with New York City over short-term rental fines

And now for a reality check on the future of TV

There’s also no DVR option with DirecTV Now and Sling TV (both say it’s on the way though), and on-demand options are limited or hard to track. An example: I could watch episodes 1, 2, 3, 4, and 6 of “Westworld” on-demand through DirecTV Now, but not episode 5 for some reason. Other shows have 72-hour windows for on demand viewing, confusing things even further.

Twitter was the place to be in 2016. Is that enough to save it?

The debut was widely praised , even if it didn't appear too different from other live streaming experiences offered by Facebook and Yahoo.

(Here's a tip: Watch the game either on Twitter or on TV.)

A sneak peek at Propel’s battling Star Wars drones

Unveiled via a teaser this summer, the devices capture four key vehicles from the original trilogy: a speeder bike, an X-Wing, a TIE fighter and, naturally, that perpetual fixer-upper, the Millennium Falcon. The drones feature four rotors capable of accelerating from zero to 30 MPH in three seconds, with peak speeds of up to 35 MPH — however many parsecs that works out to.

Moto pushes off smartwatches indefinitely

Shakil Barkat, head of global product development at Moto, said the company doesn’t “see enough pull in the market to put [a new smartwatch] out at this time,” though it may revisit the market in the future should technologies for the wrist improve. “Wearables do not have broad enough appeal for us to continue to build on it year after year,” Barkat said, and indicated that smartwatches and other wearable devices will not be in Moto’s annual device roadmap.
