Sony is crowdfunding another cool e-paper watch, but only in Japan

Sony is crowdfunding another cool e-paper watch, but only in Japan Sony just launched a crowdfunding campaign to fund its FES Watch U e-paper watch as a follow to its first FES watch, which was funded and released in Japan last year. Both the Watch U and FES aren't smartwatches exactly — they don't show phone notifications or track steps — but users can pair them with a smartphone app to change the watchface. Will it ever leave Japan?


Tesla planning to make its Autopilot Software even more restrictive

When Tesla flipped the switch and activated its Autopilot software late last year, it didn’t take long before Model S owners began pushing the software to the absurd limits. In short order, we began seeing videos of Model S owners engaged in downright dangerous behavior, from a driver who decided to eat breakfast while his Model S zoomed down a highway at 90 MPH to an individual who turned on Autopilot and then decided – I kid you not – to go sit in the backseat. Such activities may make for entertaining viral videos, but when the “toy” you’re playing around with is actually a 5,000 pound car that can cause untold amounts of damage, such behavior is nothing short of a legitimate and very real danger to the public at large. DON'T MISS:  7 hidden iOS 10 features iPhone users can look forward to As a result, Tesla a few months ago said that it would implement measures to limit some of the more ridiculous activities Model S owners were engaged in. “There’s been some fairly crazy videos on YouTube,” Tesla CEO Elon Musk said during a conference call a few months ago. “This is not good. And we will be putting some additional constraints on when autopilot can be activated to minimize the possibility of people doing crazy things with it.” Tesla did end up restricting the use-cases for Autopilot, and now comes word via Electrek that the company plans to implement even more safeguards around the software. New safeguards surrounding Autopilot are reportedly the result of recent Tesla Model S accidents that transpired while drivers were misusing the Autopilot feature. For instance, a recent Tesla accident in China occurred when a driver was busying himself with retrieving a cloth from the glove compartment and wiping down his dashboard. In another accident in Montana, Tesla discovered that a Model X driver ignored repeated warnings to assume control over the car. That being the case, once Tesla introduces its next-gen Autopilot software, there will be more constraints regarding when and how drivers can use the feature. As it stands now, Autosteer is designed to turn off when a driver fails to respond after 15 seconds of "visual warnings and audible tones." With an impending update, the restrictions will become just a tad more restrictive. According to sources familiar with the Autopilot program, Tesla will add a safety restriction that will result in not only the Autopilot disengaging after alerts are repeatedly ignored, but also blocking the driver from re-engaging the feature after it was automatically disengaged. The driver will not be able to reactivate the Autopilot until the car is stopped and put in ‘Park’. So far, it looks like it would only affect the  Autosteer  feature of the Autopilot and  TACC  would still be available for the duration of the drive. The goal of the new restriction appears to be to encourage Tesla owners to respond to the visual alert and not to ignore them. There’s no official word on when Tesla plans to roll out this update to users. Meanwhile, Tesla’s next-gen Autopilot software and hardware is reportedly in its final testing phases. According to reports, upcoming Tesla models will sport more radar units and enhanced camera systems all around the car, all making for much smarter software. According to reports, Tesla’s next-gen Autopilot suite will, among other things, be able to more precisely display other cars on the digital dash along with the exact direction and angle they are moving in. Other features reportedly in the works include the ability to identify and react appropriately to traffic signs and traffic lights.

Chinese-owned Zhongwang USA enters U.S. aluminum market with Aleris buy

China Zhongwang Holdings Chairman Liu Zhongtian toasts during the debut of Zhongwang Holdings at the Hong Kong Stock Exchange Zhongwang USA LLC, backed by Chinese aluminum magnate Liu Zhongtian, said on Monday it would buy U.S. aluminum company Aleris Corp in a bet by the billionaire that the nascent U.S. automotive aluminum sector will be the industry's next big growth market. The $2.33 billion deal comes as Liu and Zhongwang International Group Ltd, the parent of Zhongwang USA, are embroiled in a dispute over U.S. import duties amid broader trade tensions between the U.S. aluminum industry and China.

Apple expected to show new iPhone at event next week

Apple is expected to show off a new iPhone next week when the company holds its fall product launch event in San Francisco. The tech giant announced the date for the Sept. 7 launch by sending out invitations ...

All the worst opinions on what Apple’s iPhone 7 announcement means

Today, Apple used a rejected stock photo to announce that it's having an event on September 7. The company is all but guaranteed to release a new iPhone or two, along with possibly unveiling a new Apple Watch and/or new Macbooks. It's all pretty straightforward. But, because it's Monday afternoon on the internet and we still have over a week to wait for the actual event, let's speculate wildly about what those colorful dots might actually mean. DON'T MISS:  Here comes the iPhone 7: Apple just sent invites for a big event on September 7th Luckily, Twitter is ON IT with a bevy of #hottakes: https://twitter.com/jetscott/status/770293749289193472 https://twitter.com/pierce/status/770293206839799808 https://twitter.com/carlfranzen/status/770292901792321536 https://twitter.com/geoffreyfowler/status/770293223038316544 https://twitter.com/MKBHD/status/770292523789090817 https://twitter.com/jjvincent/status/770295188052905984 https://twitter.com/mg/status/770298925886558210 https://twitter.com/JonyIveParody/status/770297747710865408 Amongst all the navel-gazing over an event invite, there are actually some details we can tease out of the event invite. It's basically a stock photo for bokeh, the effect you get with a camera with objects that are out of focus. Good bokeh (like you see in the invite image) is traditionally the preserve of expensive cameras with big lenses, exactly the kind of thing that's missing from smartphone photography. So, the obvious deduction is that Apple is planning a major camera update. Leaks have shown us camera modules with two sensors (and two lenses) on the iPhone 7 Plus, so it's very possible the bigger iPhone will have a better camera that can produce, uh, very pretty event invites. Nothing else jumps out from the event invite. The location and time are exactly in line with previous Apple events, and there's precious little else I can tease out from the event image. But if you can channel your inner  Da Vinci Code , there's probably some Illuminati symbols waiting to be found.

Let's overanalyze the Apple event invite

Let's overanalyze the Apple event invite The launch of a new iPhone in the second week of September has become so regular an event that you could set your Apple Watch by it. Equally consistent is Apple’s teasing or trolling with the invite, which I’m now going to indulge in deciphering for the 2016 edition. Firstly, without trying to insult your intelligence, I have to state the obvious in pointing out that the focus for this upcoming iPhone event will be the camera.

In drought, drones help California farmers save every drop

In this photo taken July 25, 2016, Danny Royer, vice president of technology at Bowles Farming Co., prepares to pilot a drone over a tomato field near Los Banos, Calif. The farm hired Royer this year to oversee drones equipped with a state-of-the-art thermal camera. The drone can scan from a bird's-eye view for cool, soggy patches where a gopher may have chewed through the buried drip irrigation line and caused a leak of water, a precious resource in drought-stricken California. On the farm's 2,400-acre tomato crop alone, this year drones could detect enough leaks to save water needed to sustain more than 550 families of four for a year. (AP Photo/Scott Smith) LOS BANOS, Calif. (AP) — A drone whirred to life in a cloud of dust, then shot hundreds of feet skyward for a bird's-eye view of a vast tomato field in California's Central Valley, the nation's most productive farming region.


Germany wants Facebook to take initiative in fight against online hate

German Interior Minister de Maiziere vistits the Facebook office in Berlin By Thorsten Severin and Andrea Shalal BERLIN (Reuters) - Germany's interior minister visited Facebook's offices in Berlin on Monday and said it should be more proactive in removing forbidden content from its social network platform. "Facebook should take down racist content or calls for violence from its pages on its own initiative even if it hasn't yet received a complaint," Thomas de Maiziere said. "Facebook has an immensely important economic position and just like every other large enterprise it has a immensely important social responsibility." The German government has been critical of Facebook in the past.

From the iPhone 7 to the Apple Watch 2, here’s everything we expect Apple to announce next week

Earlier today, Apple sent out official invitations for a special event set to take place on September 7 at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco, California. While Apple’s iPhone 7 will undoubtedly be the primary focus of the event, it wouldn’t be all that surprising to see Apple take the opportunity to announce some other new products as well. To help get you up to speed regarding what Apple likely has in store for us come September 7, we’ve put together a short but sweet summary highlighting all of the potential new products Apple may introduce to the world next week. DON'T MISS:  Big Pokemon Go update is about to bring some exciting new features iPhone 7 This one is a no-brainer. Every September, the collective eyes of the tech world all hone in on Apple’s September media event to take a look at what type of new features the company’s next-gen iPhone brings to the table. With the iPhone 7, word is that we won’t see any groundbreaking new features, but that’s not to say that the iPhone 7 will be a ho-hum upgrade. Of course, it goes without saying that the iPhone 7 won’t ship with a 3.5mm headphone jack. In turn, it will be interesting to see how Apple plans to handle audio for the device. While lightning-based audio will obviously be an option, some have speculated that Apple may ship wireless earbuds with each new iPhone 7 sold. We consider this unlikely but Apple certainly isn’t afraid of abandoning what it deems to be legacy technologies in favor of more advanced alternatives. To that end, we have seen reports that Apple has been working on advanced Bluetooth earbuds with custom radio chips designed for best-in-class battery life. Headphone speculation aside, the iPhone 7 has a few other features worth mentioning. Aside from faster internals, it’s believed that advanced camera technology will be the key selling point of both the 4.7 and 5.5-inch iPhone 7 models. The iPhone 7 Plus in particular will reportedly be graced with a dual-camera system that should provide superior camera performance all across the board, including improved performance in low-light settings, improved color fidelity and much more. As for the 4.7-inch iPhone, it will likely boast a more advanced camera sensor along with an optical image stabilization feature that was previously only available on the iPhone 6s Plus. One other tidbit worth noting is a rumor that the iPhone 7’s home button will be flush with the device and will not be a mechanical button as we’ve seen in years past. To that end, rumor has it that the iPhone 7 home button may utilize a series of sensors that will vibrate when pressed, thereby creating an illusion that the button can be depressed. Other iPhone 7 rumors we’ve seen claim that the entry-level model will have 32GB of storage. On a related note, some sketchy reports have suggested we might even see a 256GB storage option on the iPhone 7. Additionally, we’ve seen conflicting reports pointing to the addition of either a Blue or Space Black model to the iPhone 7 lineup. Apple Watch 2 It’s been nearly 18 months since Apple rolled out the original Apple Watch and we’re certainly due for an upgrade, especially with the impending rollout of WatchOS 3. With the Apple Watch 2, which Apple will presumably want to roll out ahead of the holiday shopping season, we can expect to see faster internals, improved battery life and the addition of GPS functionality. Taken together, Apple’s next-gen Apple Watch may finally become the breakout hit that many initially anticipated the original would be. MacBook Pro Apple’s notebook line has been somewhat stagnant in recent months, but that may be about to change with the company’s next-gen MacBook Pro. We’ve seen conflicting rumors as to whether or not Apple plans to release a new MacBook Pro next week, but given what we’ve heard so far, we’re definitely going to keep our fingers crossed. Per the rumor mill, Apple’s next-gen MacBook Pro will feature an OLED touch panel and Touch ID functionality. Specifically, the OLED touch panel is said to replace the function key row and will feature options that will dynamically change depending on whatever app happens to be in use. iOS 10/WatchOS 3 overview Lastly, we can expect Apple to briefly provide us with an overview of iOS 10 and WatchOS 3. That said, it'll be interesting to see if Apple announces any new updates to the software that it didn’t want to divulge at WWDC this past June.

Honest question: what does T-Mobile think data actually is?

Honest question: what does T-Mobile think data actually is? Here are two lines from T-Mobile’s latest "Uncarrier" missive, in which the company proclaims that it has "listened to customers" and is changing its new T-Mobile One plans less than two weeks after announcing them. With T-Mobile ONE, even video is unlimited at standard definition so you can stream all you want. At this point it appears that T-Mobile is operating with definitions of "unlimited" and "data" that are are only tangentially related to reality.

U.S. appeals court dismisses AT&T data throttling lawsuit

The signage for an AT&T store is seen in New York A federal appeals court in California on Monday dismissed a U.S. government lawsuit that accused AT&T Inc of deception for reducing internet speeds for customers with unlimited mobile data plans once their use exceeded certain levels. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit said it ordered a lower court to dismiss the data-throttling lawsuit, which was filed in 2014 by the Federal Trade Commission. The FTC sued AT&T on the grounds that the No. 2 U.S. wireless carrier failed to inform consumers it would slow the speeds of heavy data users on unlimited plans.

We have some bad news about this year’s new Nexus phones

Google’s 2016 Nexus smartphones are codenamed Marlin and Sailfish. According to most leaks thus far, both handsets are expected to be premium devices when it comes to build quality as well as internal components and performance. With that in mind, don’t be surprised to hear that the phones will reportedly be more expensive than their predecessors, the Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X. DON’T MISS:  Leaked photos of iPhone 7 in blue remind us of the biggest remaining mystery The smaller of the two, the Sailfish, is expected to cost $449 for the 32GB model — at least according to Nexus Blog’s  unnamed sources from HTC. That’s $70 more than last year’s 16GB Nexus 5X, and $20 more than the 32GB option. It’s unclear at this time whether there will be a 64GB or 128GB Sailfish model, or how much the extra storage would cost. The 32GB Nexus Marlin is reportedly priced at $599, which is $100 more than last year’s 32GB Nexus 6P. The 2015 Nexus phablet also came in 64GB and 128GB options, priced at $549 and $649, respectively. It’s likely that Google will also have Marlin versions with more built-in storage, but Nexus Blog doesn’t know what to expect. Comparatively, the Nexus phones' main rival is expected to have 32GB, 128GB and 254GB options – that’s the iPhone 7, launching in mid-September. While Apple is yet to announce the new iPhones, multiple independent reports indicated that these new storage upgrades are in the cards for the iPhone. Google is rumored to have plans to announce the new Nexus devices at some point in September, and then the company will reportedly release them in early October.

How to get a ‘No Man’s Sky’ refund, even if you already played the game

No Man's Sky  has turned out to have some serious flaws that have the internet horde sharpening pitchforks. But rather than trying the time-honored tradition of abusing the developer on Twitter, how about just getting your money back? As it turns out,  No Man's Sky  is so deeply flawed that it may be eligible for a Steam refund, even if you've played more than the usual two hours. Here's what you need to do. DON'T MISS:  7 hidden iOS 10 features iPhone users can look forward to According to a post on the  No Man's Sky  subreddit , users have been able to get a refund regardless of how long they've played. The key is choosing the right reason for refund: "You can apply for the refund as you usually do. Hopefully, I saved a lot of people some money that would be better used. Reapply if need be, select reason as bad performance or false advertising . Open a ticket if you are denied by the automated system. Edit 2 - A lot of people have got refunds from this post. Reapply if you were denied before. Somebody got a refund after 72 hours!! Another user, allegedly, got a refund on Steam after 88 hours." In case you're not familiar, the refund process on Steam is simple. Just go to Steam's help page, login, and request a refund for a recent purchase. Steam's normal refund policy is that you can get a refund within 14 days, provided you've played the game for less than two hours. Obviously that won't work for a lot of  No Man's Sky owners, but that's where Steam's other policies come in. Because of the poor quality of the PC version of the game, users have been seeing poor performance, even when running on high-powered gaming PCs. There's also the matter of content missing from the game release which was promised back when the game was up for pre-order. As a result, selecting "bad performance" or "false advertising" can get you a refund, even if you've exceeded the terms of Steam's regular refund policy. Steam has issued a statement saying that "the standard Steam refund policy applies to No Man’s Sky . There are no special exemptions available. Click here for more detail on the Steam refund policy." So, there's no blanket policy to refund gamers, but if you can prove (or complain enough) that the game falsely advertised or has technical problems preventing you from playing, you may still get lucky. Playstation owners will have a more difficult time, but not all hope is lost. Another Reddit thread from /r/PS4  outlines how to get a refund from the PSN store. It's not an automated process like Steam, but it seems that if you contact PSN support, you may get lucky.

Download Data Manager Pro Red Dot Camera Normally $2.99. Looking for an iPhone camera app with the look and feel of a professional manual camera? Red Dot Camera is the first camera app to bring rangefinder-style manual focus and exposure features to iOS, taking creative mobile photography to the next level. Inspired by the retro craftsmanship of the classic Leica M camera series, Red Dot Camera brings your images to life with unrivalled quality and without the interference of gimmicky filters. Featuring four basic settings - ISO, Speed, Exposure Compensation, and Focus, Red Dot excels in delivering a retro photography experience coupled with exceptional image capture quality. Key Features: **Rangefinder-Style Manual Focusing** Focus in with precision using a magnified patch at the center of the viewfinder to capture the perfect image. **Manual ISO Control** High ISO settings generate more image noise. By letting you set the ISO value manually, Red Dot Camera allows you to capture sharper and clearer images. **Manual Shutter Speed Control** Adjust the shutter speed manually to achieve the effect of longer exposures (car headlights, water, etc.), or to capture shots of fast action. **Display Frame Lines (28mm, 35mm, 50mm)** The iPhone lens has a fixed focal length of 28mm, but Red Dot Camera shows frame lines that simulate those of a 35mm and 50mm lens, just like the Leica M rangefinder. **Self-Timer** Take a group picture or self-shot by setting the auto-timer to one of three countdown settings. **Black & White Mode** Switch to black and white and capture your image in classic coloration. Whether you’re a creative camera enthusiast or a photography student, you’ll be amazed at how Red Dot Camera enables you to take sharper, better-exposed, professional quality photos from your iPhone.
