Apple’s New iPhones Have An Expensive Nasty Surprise

Mounting evidence suggests Apple’s iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR are not selling well even despite price cuts. We already know the crowd-pleasing innovation Apple has planned to win users back, but it might not be enough after a major source confirmed the most serious problem with the company’s new iPhones… Bloomberg reports Apple has fallen substantially behind its rivals and will not be able to equip iPhones with 5G until late 2020 at the earliest. And 5G is about to become a game-changer.

Russian search giant Yandex is making phones now

After self-driving cars and smart speakers, Russian search engine giant Yandex is getting into smartphones. Its debut handset, fittingly titled “Yandex.Phone,” is an entry-level Android device that’s hooked up to its massive ecosystem. That essentially means it comes pre-loaded with Yandex’s software — including its GPS, music, and weather apps. At the center of it all sits Alice: the company’s virtual assistant, which now boasts 34,000 localized skills and can understand Russian with a “near human-level accuracy.” Alice can also help you find local businesses and service providers from Yandex’s integrated business directory. The same database can identify unknown business callers or let you contact a business by searching for a name or service.

Facebook’s top AI scientist says it’s ‘dust’ without artificial intelligence

Without artificial intelligence there wouldn’t be much left of Facebook as we know it today. That’s according to Yann LeCun, who founded Facebook’s artificial intelligence research lab five years ago. “If you take the deep learning out of Facebook today, Facebook’s dust,” LeCun, Facebook’s chief AI scientist, recently told CNN Business. “It’s entirely built around it now.” The technology is included in everything from the posts and translations you see in your news feed to advertisements. When LeCun established the lab, Facebook was already dabbling in deep learning — a type of machine learning he’s worked on and championed since the 1980s. Deep-learning software, modeled after the way neurons work in the brain, ingests loads of data and learns to make its own predictions.

Plant cyborg able to move itself to a preferred light source

A team of researchers at the MIT Media Lab built a cyborg that combines a plant with electronics and ultimately allows the plant to choose when it would like to move to a brighter spot. The cyborg is the brainchild of team leader Harpreet Sareen, and he has named it Elowan. Plants have the ability to detect light—if you watch really carefully, for example, you can actually see a sunflower move to face directly into the sun as it moves across the sky. Prior research has shown that plants have many natural sensors and response systems—they respond to humidity and temperature levels, for example, or the amount of water in the soil in which they are planted. In this new effort, the researchers sought to give one plant more autonomy by putting its potted base on wheels fitted with electronics and an electric motor.

Rapper 2 Milly Sues Epic Games For Stealing His Dance

Rapper 2 Milly is suing the maker of Fortnite, Epic Games, for selling his signature “Milly Rock” dance as an emote called “Swipe It.” Pierce Bainbridge, the law firm representing 2 Milly, filed the complaint in the Central District Court of California today, accusing Epic of, among other things, copyright infringement, and exploiting African American talent for profit in the game.

Pokémon Go trainer battles guide: How to fight your friends and choose a league

Pokémon Go has introduced PvP with trainer battles, allowing players to compete against each other both locally and online. Not only can they fight each other one-on-one, but trainer battles introduce competitive trainer leagues as well, so that Pokémon masters can truly be named. It’s a huge change to a game that’s sorely needed multiplayer in the years since launch.
