Waymo self-driving trucks are hauling gear for Google data centers

Waymo says it uses the same technology for its trucks, so it's a good guess that the company is aiming to achieve the same level of autonomy for its trucking fleet. That would mean a truck that can drive itself all the way from one loading dock to another—no safety driver, transfer hub, or remote operator needed.

Facebook will exclusively stream 25 MLB games this season

The viewing experience won’t feel out of the ordinary, as MLB Network will be producing the games. So you’ll get the familiar presentation of televised games — but you’ll be able to watch on mobile, desktop, and on TVs through Facebook’s app. Facebook also has the ability to integrate “social integration and graphics during the broadcast,” according to Bloomberg .

Apple filed a patent for a keyboard that isn’t ruined by dust

According to the documentation published, the patent was filed on September 8th, 2016 -- months after reviews for the second-generation MacBook had come out. The one page made public doesn't tell us much about the new design, or the solutions Apple envisioned to deal with the contaminant problem. But it does suggest the company took this issue seriously enough to start workshopping -- and filing patents for -- a fix. It's definitely possible that this exact design doesn't make it to the market, but it implies a solution is coming to future machines.

Fortnite is coming to mobile with cross-platform play

We already know that cross-play between PlayStation and Xbox is possible with Fortnite , and we also know that Microsoft has expressed interest in making cross-play between console possible. Though PlayStation has never had trouble with mobile and PC cross-play, it's still interesting that Sony's is the only console involved. Perhaps this is Sony attempting to secure an agreement that will counteract Xbox's exclusive PlayerUnknown's Battleground port access, or it could very well be that Epic is simply still making arrangements with Microsoft.

Study shows fake news spreads faster than real news on twitter

According to a study in March's Science Magazine , fake news also spreads farther than its genuine counterpart. The study comprised stories and tweets from 2006 to 2017. It looked at 126,000 stories that had been tweeted by roughly 3 million people. It concluded that tweets about true news stories rarely reached more than 1,000 people, whereas the top false news stories all spread between 1,000 and 100,000 people.


Motorola is working on a VR headset for its phones

One intriguing possibility here is for this Moto Mod to support some basic augmented reality features since the exposed camera can capture footage from the wearer’s point of view. It seems unlikely that we’d see much more than a live view of the world, though. Even Microsoft’s Windows Mixed Reality Headsets, which include cameras on the outside, don’t offer AR features yet, and those were seemingly conceived as headsets that could offer both features.

Google Maps marks Mario Day by adding a Super Mario Kart to your navigation

Update: Bird has raised $100 million to become the Uber of electric scooters

Like Uber, Bird has also rolled out its services with little regard for the regulations imposed by the neighborhoods in which it operates. When TechCrunch first reported on the company’s $15 million raise less than a month ago, we noted that the company had surreptitiously put 1,000 of its electric scooters on the streets — to the delight of the 50,000 people who have taken 250,000 rides on them, and disregarding many laws put in place by the city of Santa Monica.

29 One Hundred Years Later, the Madness of Daylight Saving Time Endures

It didn’t go smoothly. In 1918, Easter Sunday fell on March 31, which led to a lot of latecomers to church services. Enraged rural and evangelical opponents thereafter blamed daylight saving for subverting sun time, or “God’s time.” Newspapers were deluged by letter writers complaining that daylight saving upset astronomical data and made almanacs useless, prevented Americans from enjoying the freshest early morning air, and even browned out lawns unaccustomed to so much daylight.

5 Sleep-Habit Tweaks To Help You Adjust To Daylight Saving Time

You might like a periodic glass of wine after dinner, but try to avoid it the week before Daylight Saving Time kicks in. Instead, try brewing a cup of herbal tea with a blend of nervous system–calming ingredients like passionflower, catnip, hops, oatflower, valerian, or lemon balm. These can all help your brain kick into a state of rest and decreases the excess “fight or flight” mode caused temporarily by the time shift. Alcohol, on the other hand, may help you feel sleepy but actually creates lighter, fragmented sleep and disrupts the deep sleep you’ll need all the more the week after losing an hour.

iPhone owners more likely to buy a smart speaker

As voice platforms continue to gain footing in homes via smart speakers — connected devices powered primarily by artificial intelligence (AI)-enabled voice assistants — the opportunity for voice apps is becoming more profound. However, as observed with the rise of mobile apps in the late 2000s, any new digital ecosystem will face significant growing pains, and voice apps are no exception. Thanks to the visual-free format of voice apps, discoverability, monetization, and retention are proving particularly problematic in this nascent space. This is creating a problem in the voice assistant market that could hinder greater uptake if not addressed.

Alexa's new Follow-Up Mode can handle back-to-back requests

The basic idea is simple, and obvious in hindsight. With Follow-Up Mode, Alexa will listen for 5 seconds after she's done responding to you to see if you have anything else to ask. The blue ring on your Alexa device of choice will light up during these 5 seconds to indicate that she's listening. If you have anything else to ask her, you can just ask it without needing to say her name first. If you don't, she'll just go back to sleep automatically without saying anything else.

Smartphones vs cameras: do you still need a DSLR?

Smartphones will never supersede cameras, but they'll remain powerful tools that you can carry in your pocket at all times, to use as a compact option that compliments the quality and control offered by your DSLR or mirrorless camera.

ISPs Caught Injecting Cryptocurrency Miners and Spyware In Some Countries

Governments in Turkey and Syria have been caught hijacking local internet users' connections to secretly inject surveillance malware, while the same mass interception technology has been found secretly injecting browser-based cryptocurrency mining scripts into users' web traffic in Egypt. Governments, or agencies linked to it, and ISPs in the three countries are using Deep Packet Inspection technology from Sandvine (which merged with Procera Networks last year), to intercept and alter Internet users' web traffic. Deep packet inspection technology allows ISPs to prioritize, degrade, block, inject, and log various types of Internet traffic, in other words, they can analyze each packet in order to see what you are doing online. According to a new report by Citizen Lab, Turkey's Telecom network was using Sandvine PacketLogic devices to redirect hundreds of targeted users (journalists, lawyers, and human rights defenders) to malicious versions of legitimate programs bundled with FinFisher and StrongPity spyware, when they tried to download them from official sources.

The 50 best superhero movies of all time, ranked

Maybe it's too early to have "Black Panther" so high on the list, but I'm doing it anyway. It's already broken plenty of box-office records and introduced audiences to a diverse cast rarely seen in superhero films. In the same way that "Wonder Woman" impacted so many for being a female-centric superhero movie, "Black Panther" is the first in the genre to feature a nearly all-black cast. Set in the fictional African nation of Wakanda, "Black Panther" brings audiences to a world unlike any in other superhero movies, and its storyline tackles modern political and social issues that other superhero movies wouldn't dare touch. Michael B. Jordan's villain Killmonger is one of the best villains in the genre, simply because his purpose can resonate with so many.
