FCC chairman outlines plan to reverse net neutrality

The chairman of the FCC today revealed a plan to reverse Obama administration policy that all web traffic be treated equally. Under two-year-old net neutrality guidelines, cable companies were classified as a public utility under Title II of the Communications Act of 1934. Chairman Ajit Pai wants to reverse that classification and essentially leave cable companies to self-regulate.

Amazon's new Echo Look will judge your outfits

But Amazon (AMZN, Tech30) didn't share many details about the computers, or the humans, powering Echo Look. The company would not say whom its fashion specialists are, and whether they judge individuals directly or simply tell software what looks good. Amazon said the software was trained on a diverse set of individuals with different body types and skin tone, but did not elaborate further.

Light up the John Oliver signal: The battle over Net Neutrality is back

Internet advocates tend to argue in support of net neutrality with near-religious fervor. Without net neutrality, they warn, the internet as we know it could cease to exist, instead carved up by major companies. This would mean the internet is no longer the open network that has served as the platform for the explosion in innovation seen in the last few decades.

Call of Duty: WWII is launching November 3rd

One of the things Sledgehammer stressed during the reveal was the focus on research and attention to detail, with the goal of making the most authentic game possible — a WWII historian even worked on the game. The game will take place primarily in Europe between 1944 and 1945. “Getting World War II right is incredibly important to us,” explained studio GM Glen Schofield. The studio is relatively new, but has been focused entirely on the Call of Duty series; the developer made its debut with Modern Warfare 3 in 2011, followed by 2014’s Advanced Warfare . And yes, WWII will feature zombies .

Google's real Kubernetes magic is all about community, not code - TechRepublic

The Kubernetes community is roughly five times as large as the next-nearest competitor, Apache Mesos, with more than 1,350 contributors to Kubernetes, collectively delivering over 47,000 commits. There are also over 1,500 job postings for Kubernetes-trained professionals, up from roughly 250 a year ago, indicating a groundswell of enterprise support for the project. Given that Kubernetes was born at Google, it's not surprising that the top three contributors to Kubernetes are all from Google (or, in the case of Brendan Burns, were at Google until mid-2016). But, just as surprising is how much of Kubernetes is being developed outside Google.

Google Home Will Now Read Cooking Directions Out Loud

The idea here is pretty great, but it’s hard to tell how well it’ll actually work in real time. It’s also a bit frustrating that you can only send recipes using Google’s own apps, which limits your selection and it doesn’t appears there’s any means to actually save and recall any recipes. Either way, it’s still a step in an interesting direction. As with all Google things, this will be rolling out over the next week or so, so if it’s not working for you right now, try it again later.

How to find out (almost) everything Facebook knows about you

This is only a fraction of the information Facebook has on me, yet I think it’s more than enough that the average person — having never met me — could do a fair job of describing who I am, and what my interests are. At a glance, you can see what sort of smartphone I use, my primary desktop operating system and browser, travel habits, and even my political leanings. The predictions are made based on pages you’ve liked, status updates, what your friends like, location, career focus, and even how you interact with other accounts or ads — on or off the site — and paint a fairly comprehensive picture of each of us. And this is just the data Facebook’s making public.

Smartphone camera shootout: Galaxy S8 vs. iPhone 7, Google Pixel, and LG G6

The iPhone 7 Plus and the LG G6 share an advantage over the S8 and the Pixel, and that’s versatility. After taking the four similar shots above, I realized that the LG G6’s super-wide second camera was able to catch the sun setting over the hill. I was shooting through a fence here, so I wouldn’t have even been able to back away and try to get this shot with the other cameras. It was the super-wide angle lens that made this shot possible.

Google experiment promises clean nighttime shots from your phone

Many modern smartphones can take decent photos when the sun goes down, but their noisy, washed out images still don't hold a candle to the shots from a high-end DSLR . Google researcher Florian Kainz might have a way of closing that gap at least some of the time, however. In response to a challenge from one of his team members, he wrote an experimental Android app that helps take exceptionally clean photos in even the darkest conditions. The software gives you manual control over exposure, focus distance and ISO sensitivity, all of which are crucial to low-light photography. When you tap the shutter button, the app takes a burst of up to 64 photos. After that, it's a matter of some calculation: Kainz eliminates the noise by computing the mean of the frames, and can remove artifacts by subtracting the mean of frames shot with tape over the sensor.

M. Night Shyamalan and Bruce Willis will complete the Unbreakable trilogy in January 2019

Shyamalan, for his part, had been on a bit of a losing streak after the critically reviled Lady in the Water , the whitewashed Avatar: The Last Airbender , and a fairly humiliating failed attempt at a comeback in 2010 . But with the help of Blumhouse, Willis’ beloved David Dunn character, and the good will he’s accrued with back-to-back low-budget critical hits, that looks to be over.

The Rihanna/Lupita Heist Movie Is the Internet's Only Good Movie Idea

A good idea is churned out by the internet machine and we all get a glimpse of the potential glory of the human race.

The first 4K livestream from space starts at 1:30PM ET

You'll need a quick internet connection and a reasonably beefy computer to tune in at 4K, although lower resolutions will be an option if you can't spare the bandwidth or computing cycles. However, it's clear that the ISS has the tougher challenge. It's not so much the 4K gear (a RED Epic Dragon camera paired with a 4K encoder) as the internet connection. While the network the ISS uses has been receiving performance upgrades , it remains to be seen how well bandwidth-hungry 4K video works in a real livestream. The agency has to worry about delays, too, and recently revamped its technology to cut wait times.

A Devastating Holocaust Documentary Proves VR Filmmaking Isn't Just a Gimmick

It’s really easy to mess up a film project about the Holocaust. The wrong tone, the wrong direction, and it can all go horribly awry. Add cutting-edge technology operated by unskilled hands to a topic as devastating as survivor testimony, and you could have a disaster. Fortunately, the VR film The Last Goodbye , which debuted at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival, gets it right.

HiKey has double the number of CPU cores and about twice the peak clock speed of the Pi, as well as triple the Pi's 1GB memory. While the HiKey's Mali-G71 GPU can output 4K graphics, the board has a HDMI 1.2a port, which can output a maximum of 1,080p.

At the time, I requested Friedman’s FBI file through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request, and that 93-page file was delivered to me yesterday. While there’s nothing scandalous in it, reading the file made me think about something that’s currently in the news. Namely, just how screwed Michael Flynn is.

For your big data, sometimes there’s no place like home

The first place where we see this new approach to data is at the edge with the emergence of edge analytics. For many applications, driving data all the way back to the cloud to be aggregated is neither timely, inexpensive, nor secure. Being able to turn your data around at the edge or on-premises allows for more efficient deployment of solutions to monitor data streams in real time for patterns and anomalies. These can then drive more intelligence business solutions that include such things as automated predictions, efficiency ratings, and time to failure analysis.
