Uber settles with family of woman killed in self-driving car accident

The daughter and husband of Elaine Herzberg, who died when a self-driving Uber test vehicle collided with her in Arizona earlier this month, has settled with the ride-sharing giant. An attorney representing the family told Reuters “the matter has been resolved” and the family would not comment further on the settlement. Terms of the settlement were not revealed.

Facebook Executive In 2016: “Maybe Someone Dies In A Terrorist Attack Coordinated On Our Tools”

The Bosworth memo reveals the extent to which Facebook’s leadership understood the physical and social risks the platform’s products carried — even as the company downplayed those risks in public. It suggests that senior executives had deep qualms about conduct that they are now seeking to defend. And as the company reels amid a scandal over improper outside data collection on its users, the memo shows that one senior executive — one of Zuckerberg’s longest-serving deputies — prioritized all-encompassing growth over all else, a view that has led to questionable data collection and manipulative treatment of its users. You can read the full post below. Facebook was unable to provide comment at the time of publication.

If Tim Cook Hates Facebook’s Privacy Sins, He Could Do More About It

The Fantastic Four Return to Marvel Comics - IGN

The missing Fantastic Four members were last seen departing to explore the multiverse at the end of 2016’s Secret Wars. That came not long after the ongoing Fantastic Four comic series was canceled in 2015 amidst controversy that Marvel was shuttering the title because rival movie studio Fox owned the characters’ film rights.

It’s also tightening future moderation as a result of this incident with “another level of Giphy moderation before each sticker is approved into the library. This is now a permanent addition to our moderation process.”

Does your iPhone need a new battery? Find out with iOS 11.3 | ZDNet

According to Apple, the iPhone's battery is designed to retain up to 80 percent of its original capacity at 500 complete charge cycles, so if the full charge capacity is less than 80 percent of the design capacity, of the recharge cycles exceed 500, then your battery is considered worn. Problem is, Apple hasn't made any of this information available to the end user. Unless you've been meticulous about keeping battery recharge records -- and who has time for that? -- then you've probably no clue how many times you've recharged your iPhone.

Microsoft's longtime Windows boss is leaving the company amid a huge executive reorganization

With change comes transition, and one transition we have been planning for is for Terry Myerson to pursue his next chapter outside Microsoft.

Over the past several years, Terry and the WDG team transformed Windows to create a secure, always up-to-date, modern OS. His strong contributions to Microsoft over 21 years from leading Exchange to leading Windows 10 leave a real legacy. I want to thank Terry for his leadership on my team and across Microsoft. He will work with me on the transition over the coming months.

What’s most interesting about the report, however, is what it suggests about the type of AR apps which are gaining popularity. While games still make up the majority of downloads, with 47 percent of downloads, lifestyle apps have doubled in their share of downloads. When Sensor Tower Store Intelligence first ran the numbers at the end of last year, lifestyle AR apps made up just 5 percent of downloads, compared with 11 percent today. Utilities are also performing well, although slightly down from the percentage they represented early on.
