Palantir Settles Federal Discrimination Lawsuit

Palantir isn't the first tech company to settle while denying the allegations. Splunk, another Bay Area-based software company, agreed to pay $2.7 million in back pay to resolve allegations of hiring discriminations at its San Francisco headquarters. A compliance review similar to the one that the Labor Department had conducted at Palantir found that the company discriminated against 872 African-American and Asian applicants who applied for certain positions.

Uber must turn over information about its acquisition of Otto to Waymo, court rules

Google’s self-driving unit, Waymo, is suing Uber, claiming that it acquired Levandowski’s company Otto as a way to steal Waymo’s secret lidar technology and speed up its efforts to bring the first self-driving car to market. Waymo has claimed that Levandowski signed an agreement with Uber’s lawyers just a few days after quitting his job at Google, requiring Uber to defend him if the company’s acquisition of Otto resulted in a lawsuit. Waymo has accordingly asked Uber to hand over a privilege log with details about Uber’s early legal entanglement with Levandowski.

https://news.slashdot.org/story/17/04/25/219233/facebook-shows-related-articles-and-fact-checkers-before-you-open-links?utm_source=slashdot&utm_medium=twitter

Facebook wants you to think about whether a headline is true and see other perspectives on the topic before you even read the article. In its next step against fake news, Facebook today begins testing a different version of its Related Articles widget that normally appears when you return to the News Feed after opening a link. Now Facebook will also show Related Articles including third-party fact checkers before you read an article about a topic that many people are discussing . If you saw a link saying "Chocolate cures cancer!" from a little-known blog, the Related Article box might appear before you click to show links from the New York Times or a medical journal noting that while chocolate has antioxidants that can lower your risk for cancer, it's not a cure. If an outside fact checker like Snopes had debunked the original post, that could appear in Related Articles too. Facebook says this is just a test, so it won't necessarily roll out to everyone unless it proves useful. It notes that Facebook Pages should not see a significant change in the reach of their News Feed posts. There will be no ads surfaced in Related Articles.

Uber is getting serious about building real, honest-to-god flying taxis

It is also joining forces with real estate firm Hilwood Properties in Dallas-Fort Worth to identify sites where it will build takeoff and landing pads, which Uber calls “vertiports.” It has signed contracts (or is in the midst of contract negotiations) with five aircraft manufacturers to work on the design and production of lightweight, electrically powered vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) aircraft. And it launched a partnership with an electric charging company called ChargePoint, to develop charging stations for Uber’s flying taxis.

Google Rewrites Its Powerful Search Rankings to Bury Fake News

While Facebook has faced a backlash for the spread of fake news across its social network, Google has been criticized for results that leap to the top for specific queries. For example, last month for the search query, “is Obama planning a coup,” the top result produced a blatantly wrong article, and did so in a feature snippet -- a text box that Google uses to give quick, authoritative answers. Gomes used this as an example of the type of search result the changes are meant to bury.

One day, this device could help to bring premature human babies to term outside the uterus — but right now, it has only been tested on sheep.

Imagine you have a choice of seeing a Chinese movie (made in English for foreign consumption) over an American or British one, and the viewing fee is 90% lower. You go for it, the movie's fine... but without you even realizing it, you're absorbing Chinese culture. Their values, their imagery, fawning over their stars. Maybe even displacing your own.

Streaming videos from your browser to Chromecast is about to look way better

Google is testing a major leap in quality when casting a tab with video content from a Chrome desktop browser to your Chromecast. Ever since the streaming gadget was introduced, this has been a rather lackluster way of sending video to the TV from sources that don’t natively support Chromecast. (Hi, Amazon Video.) Tab casting can be laggy, drops frames, and never preserves the video’s original quality. That’s changing soon and you can try the new solution right now.

One cool feature of the Samsung Galaxy S8 makes me really excited for the iPhone 8

So when the phone showed me the time and date at all times, it was only lighting up the pixels it needed to do that. The black parts of the screen weren't colored black, like an LCD screen. Instead, the pixels were shut off entirely. If an iPhone tried to do that now, it would have to light up the entire screen, then color in the pixels black to cover up the backlight. And your battery would drain.

The First Trailer for Kingsman: The Golden Circle Is More Fun Than a Spy Should Have

If it’s not immediately obvious from this trailer, after the events of the first movie, the remaining Kingsman were exposed, leading to an attack on the secret spy organization. The Kingsman are forced to go to America and team up with the U.S. version of the organization, the Statesman including Jeff Daniels, Channing Tatum, and Halle Berry. Also, it seems Colin Firth’s Galahad is hanging out with them, which is impressive, seeing as he died in the first movie. But again, that’s Kingsman for you. It’s so much fun even dead people want to come back for more.

AT&T's faux 5G network launches in Austin

So long as you have a Galaxy S8 or S8 Plus , you can get speeds that should leave LTE in the dust. Expect downloads about twice as fast on average, the carrier says. Indianapolis is due for the next rollout in the summer, and there will be 20 total areas covered (including Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, Nashville and San Francisco) by the end of 2017. And if you're not inclined to Samsung hardware, you should see "numerous other devices" this year that take advantage of the new network.
