  • The Pixel 4a might be cheaper than anyone expected
    by Napier Lopez on May 14, 2020 at 10:39 pm

    The Pixel 3a was arguably the best Pixel of its generation, providing so much of what makes Pixel phones great — the camera and software, mainly — at a far cheaper price of $399. And though almost every rumor so far has pointed to a $399 price point for Google’s budget phone, one rumor making the rounds today suggests the phone might just be significantly cheaper than anyone expected. $349 for 128 GB. So says Stephen Hall from 9to5Google, suggesting that Google will forgo a 64GB option this time around. That’s a bold claim, considering leaked marketing materials from the ever-reliable Evan… This story continues at The Next Web

  • Scientists give blind people ‘sight’ by drawing shapes directly on their brains
    by Tristan Greene on May 14, 2020 at 10:08 pm

    A team of researchers from UCLA and Baylor have developed a method for drawing symbols – including letter and shapes – directly on the human brain using electrical stimulation. The result allows individuals who’ve entirely lost their sense of vision to perceive the shapes as “sights.” The new process bypasses the human eye and the optic nerve and uses electricity to stimulate implanted electrodes at the visual cortex, located in the back of the brain. It works through dynamic stimulation, meaning instead of sending stimulation in the shape of a completely formed letter, the researchers trace the letter directly on… This story continues at The Next Web

  • Messenger Rooms, Facebook’s 50-caller Zoom competitor, is now available
    by Napier Lopez on May 14, 2020 at 9:37 pm

    Messenger Rooms, Facebook’s Zoom competitor that can support up to 50 people in one video call, is now available in the US, Mexico, and Canada. It “will be available to everyone globally in the next week” said Mark Zuckerberg in a post on his Facebook profile. Zuckerberg highlighted some of the differences between Messenger Rooms and existing video calling options. While regular Messenger and WhatsApp “are already the most popular video calling services globally,” those are currently limited in number; WhatsApp just added the ability to make eight-person calls, but sometimes you just need more. Meanwhile “for large groups most… This story continues at The Next WebOr just read more coverage about: Facebook

  • Microsoft will detail how it plans to unify UWP and Win32 apps at Build 2020
    by Napier Lopez on May 14, 2020 at 7:09 pm

    The Universal Windows Platform, UWP for short, was supposed to be the future of Windows. Back when Microsoft still had aspirations for Windows to be a major mobile OS, UWP apps were supposed to be able to function on desktops, tablets, and phones alike. Yet over the years, developers largely stuck to the tried and trusted Win32 platform. Now it seems Microsoft is getting rid of UWP altogether. As spotted by Paul Thurrott, a session for the company’s upcoming online-only Build conference will explain “how the Windows app platform is evolving and unifying Win32 and UWP” under the WinUI framework. Another… This story continues at The Next WebOr just read more coverage about: Microsoft

  • Microsoft’s new AI can generate smart to-do lists from your emails
    by Tristan Greene on May 14, 2020 at 7:00 pm

    Researchers from the University of Washington and Microsoft’s AI team today unveiled a ‘Smart To-Do’ tool for automatically generating task lists from emails. Smart To-Do is an AI feature that scans your outgoing emails for actionable text and turns your self-given tasks into items on an automatically generated to-do list. If, for example, you tell your boss that you’ll give them an update on the Amsterdam account by noon on Wednesday, the AI will put something like “update the boss on the Amsterdam account” on your to-do list with the applicable deadline. The (hopefully) upcoming feature was revealed in a… This story continues at The Next WebOr just read more coverage about: Microsoft

  • Sprint will disappear this summer as T-Mobile takes over
    by Napier Lopez on May 14, 2020 at 6:31 pm

    T-Mobile and Sprint officially became one last month, and the two networks have already begun merging their networks. We’ve known for a while that the Sprint brand would be phased out in favor of T-Mobile as well, but now we know when. During an investor call, T-Mobile CEO Mike Seivert said the company will transition to a unified brand starting this summer. The process was originally expected to begin in early summer, but COVID-19 pushed it to mid-summer instead: With COVID-19, we moved it out into the mid-summer instead of the early summer, and this is when we will essentially… This story continues at The Next WebOr just read more coverage about: Sprint,T-Mobile

  • Advocacy groups accuse TikTok of putting children at risk
    by Rachel Kaser on May 14, 2020 at 6:20 pm

    TikTok is in hot water yet again, this time for failing to protect its youthful users in spite of its promise to do so — and if history repeats, it might have to pay another seven-figure fine if this complaint bears fruit. The complaint was filed by the Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood and the Center for Digital Democracy, along with a dozen other groups. The gist of it is that TikTok continues to thumb its nose at rules designed to protect the privacy of children by leaving videos featuring them up, and fails to obtain parental consent before gathering… This story continues at The Next Web

  • This AI will judge you for eating microwave meals
    by Thomas Macaulay on May 14, 2020 at 5:20 pm

    A new AI system that quietly watches over you from inside your home can work out if you’re gorging on microwave meals or constantly blowdrying your hair. The system, called Sapple, collects data from two separate sensors: a wall-mounted device that tracks the movements of residents, and a smart electricity meter that monitors the total energy consumed in the home.  This data is fed to a deep learning model that connects the resident’s location to the energy signals to work out how they’re using microwaves, stoves, and hair dryers. [Read: Body-worn sensors to predict COVID-19 infections in US military hospitals] Sapple was created by MIT Computer Science and… This story continues at The Next Web
