Lyft expects self-driving cars to handle most rides in 5 years

When Lyft says it's optimistic about the future of self-driving cars , it's not joking around. Co-founder John Zimmer has posted a manifesto which sets very ambitious goals for autonomous driving. Most notably, he expects self-driving cars to handle the "majority" of Lyft's rides within 5 years, and all of them within 10 years. Zimmer doesn't say exactly how his company will reach that milestone so quickly, but he sees a transition where driverless tech gradually increases in capability. Fixed-route autonomy would show up as early as 2017, while low-speed (under 25MPH) autonomy on changeable routes would start as soon as 2018. Full autonomy would just be the next logical step, then.

Washington Post Throws Snowden Under the Bus

Last night’s joint op-ed from The Post ’s editorial board comes at a moment when activists are in the midst of a concerted campaign to lobby President Obama to pardon Snowden. It makes sense that The Post would take this moment to give an official opinion about whether Snowden is a criminal. What’s baffling is that they seem to imply that no public interest was served by any of the leaks except for one—one they aren’t responsible for revealing.

Everything you need to know about the Large Hadron Collider

Like the name suggests, the LHC smashes beams of tiny particles such as hadrons — i.e. small particles made of even smaller subatomic particles known as quarks — into each other at ultra-high speeds. These particle beams are launched with about 13 teraelectronvolts (TeV) of combined energy, resulting in unbelievably dense particles that are about 1,000,000 times hotter than the Sun’s core. This is one of the many reasons the structure is housed underground, and why it’s cooled to 1.9 degrees Kelvin, or nearly 1.9 degrees above absolute zero.

20 iPhone 7 vs. iPhone 6s Drop Test: Find out Which One Survives

The bad news is that the rear camera glass of the new iPhones is prone to shattering very easily when compared to the iPhone 6s. Like their predecessors, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus come with a sapphire crystal glass protecting the camera module, which is more brittle than glass. However, on the iPhone 6s, the camera glass is protected by a metal casing that is missing from the iPhone 7. This likely leads to the camera glass on the new iPhones shattering very easily. On the plus side, the camera performance did not take any hit even with the broken camera glass in all cases.

WashPost Makes History: First Paper to Call for Prosecution of Its Own Source (After Accepting Pulitzer)

But even more staggering than this act of journalistic treachery against their paper’s own source are the claims made to justify it.

Krige Schabort's Carbon Fiber Paralympics Bike Is a $10,000 Ride

They may be “bikes,” but the vehicles used in the 20-kilometer stretch of the paratriathlon are nothing like a traditional racing cycle in terms of ergonomics, operation, and shock-resistance. For one thing, they’re all front-wheel drive: The rider operates the pedals with his or her hands, in a push-pull rowing motion with the cranks set even at one another. Riders lay low and parallel to the ground, as if they’re driving a hand-cranked luge. Compared to a traditional bicycle, there’s much more friction involved. A rider’s back, neck, and head are in constant contact with the bike.

The Best Point-and-Shoot Cameras of 2016

If you're not opposed to spending some serious cash on a pocket camera, your choices are extensive. The Sony RX100 series includes four models ranging from $500 to $1,000, all with a different level of features. They use image sensors that are much larger than those in a smartphone or a typical point-and-shoot, and have bright lenses, giving them an edge in image quality, even in dim light. Sony isn't the only company making small cameras with big image sensors and zoom lenses—Canon and Panasonic have good models on the market, and Nikon is joining them in the future with its forthcoming DL series.

Amazon's Echo steals a march in the race for artificial intelligence

While taking out a smartphone in public and speaking to it – as one must with Apple’s Siri or Google’s Assistant – is awkward, and often slower than simply using a touchscreen, talking to a device in the comfort of one’s own home is decidedly less uncomfortable.

How the miniseries became the coolest category in television

Historically, the Emmys have recognized longer-form programming in two distinct categories: Outstanding Miniseries and Outstanding Television Movie. But in the 2000s the miniseries fell out of favor, and after years of not being able to find enough projects to nominate the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences just combined them into one catch-all category: Outstanding Miniseries or Movie. The first network to see the potential was FX. After Ryan Murphy's bombastic and controversial American Horror Story: Murder House lost the Golden Globe for Best TV Drama in 2012, the network scrambled to submit it to the Emmys four months later as a miniseries. The second season of American Horror Story was already set to debut the following month, so it was obvious that the show was not a miniseries in the way the term had been popularly understood up to that point. However, since AHS was an anthology series — presenting distinct stories each year with no carried-over characters — they won the argument.

2015 Cerasuolo Tiberio Abruzzo, Italy ($16).  Of course, rosé is always a huge seller for us in the summer and a lot of them are made to drink on a hot day, but it’s no longer a seasonal wine: It’s relevant all year long. Some rosés are serious wines. They have a higher alcohol content, and they're richer and well-structured and can handle fall flavors extremely well. Plus, when you get a well-made bottle with a little bit of age, it gets more complex. You don't just want to drink it and taste the strawberries.
