Facebook's Libra is so shady it actually united Congress

Image
For the second day in a row, Republican and Democratic lawmakers slammed Facebook over its digital currency, Libra. Members of the House Committee on Financial Services backed the message of their Senate colleagues from yesterday: they don’t trust Facebook.Rep. Maxine Waters opened the hearing by blasting Facebook’s “pattern of failing to keep consumer data private on a scale similar to Equifax" and said that if Libra launches, "the company and its partners will yield immense economic power that could destabilize currencies.”Libra is a blockchain-based digital currency, or cryptocurrency, which Facebook formally announced last month. It's overseen by a non-profit headquartered in Switzerland, the Libra Association, of which Facebook is a member. The social media giant also created a subsidiary group, Calibra, for its own Libra-related products. Read more... More about Facebook, Library, Cryptocurrency, Congressional Hearing, and Calibra

Snow cannons can stabilize melting Antarctic ice shelves, physicists say

Image
West Antarctica is an ominous place. In this exceptionally remote region, ice is breaking off into the sea faster than it's naturally replenished by snowfall. Massive icebergs — recently one five times the size of Manhattan — have broken off into the ocean more frequently since 2001. This is bad. As West Antartica's ice shelves — the ends of great glaciers that float over the ocean — continue snapping off, eventually they'll lose the critical point at which they're grounded to the ocean floor, resulting in their collapse. Critically, these grounded ice shelves act like plugs, holding back West Antarctic ice sheets from flowing unhindered into the ocean. Read more...

Mystery box shows up in random places to help people thinking about suicide

Image
The blue boxes bear only a graphic of a white anchor. If you found one on the street, it might look like packaging from a store with a nautical theme. But upon lifting upon the lid, you'll see a message: "This is for you. This is my gift to you. If any of these words describe how you're feeling, then this box is for you. Lost. Hopeless. Suicidal."Ali Borowsky, founder of the small, grassroots nonprofit organization Find Your Anchor, has placed inside the box, among other items, a list of suicide prevention resources, posters with hopeful messages, a deck of cards titled "52+ Reasons to Live," and a letter.  Read more...

Apple supplier's bullish forecast hints at end to smartphone industry's losing streak

Image
Many companies that design their own chips including Apple, Huawei and Qualcomm are known as fabless chip makers. No, it doesn't mean that their chips aren't fabulous. It only indicates that they do not own the facilities required to manufacture their chips, known in the industry as "fabs" or fabrication plants. A company that manufactures chips using other firm's designs is known as a foundry. Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) happens to be the largest independent foundry in the world.
As a result, there is a strong connection between the state of ...

Google is collecting "faces" in various cities for a major Pixel 4 feature

Image
If you've looked at renders of the Google Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL, and even the photo of the Pixel 4 that the company shared, you'll notice that something is missing. The fingerprint scanner, found on the rear of every Pixel handset since the OG models, is missing. And the bottom bezel is too small to accommodate a front-facing fingerprint reader. Sure, we could assume that there will be an in-display biometric sensor, but there is actually speculation that Google will endow the new Pixels with a secure 3D facial recognition feature. One way to achieve this without using the complex structured ...

Your first look at 'Rick and Morty' Season 4 is here, and it's super silly

Image
We have our first glimpse at the long-awaited fourth season of Rick and Morty and it's got almost everything you could ask for: Morty, an alien, Jerry, and rage. No Rick this time, unfortunately.As we learned in May, Rick and Morty is returning with Season 4 in November, and frankly this first clip is pretty grounded compared to some of the things that we've seen in the show thus far.It looks like in this episode, Morty and Jerry are working with an alien who is an app developer and has developed an app for them that they want pulled, as well as an ominous beeping app. It's not a lot to go on, but hey, it's the first new clip in two years.

'Sky: Children of the Light', the spiritual successor to 'Journey', makes you believe in a better world

Image
Thatgamecompany co-founder Jenonva Chen, the mind behind wildly acclaimed titles like Journey and Flower, designs games with one simple but seemingly impossible goal: to create virtual worlds where people are nice to each other.In 2012, the monolithic Journey achieved that seemingly impossible task. The minimalist online game stripped players of all identity, rendering each an identical, anonymous robed figure without a name or any ability to communicate aside from chirps. By doing away with all the typical conventions of a multiplayer game (voice chat, competitiveness, usernames), Journey left the strangers it paired together with no other option than to cooperate on their adventure through its gorgeous and mysterious world. Famously, one other form of interaction became common practice among players, which Chen and his team never accounted for.  Read more...
