This absurd parody proves that all TED Talks really do sound the same

It’s not just you: A lot of TED Talks sound the same. Comedian and writer Keaton Patti — who imagined what a White House press briefing written by a bot might sound like — just shared a new imagined bot script, this time parodying the language of lofty TED Talks. The “visibly clothed” TED TALKER opens the bizarrely inspirational lecture — given in a “place where you can talk” — with an anecdote about his or her grandfather, who was “paid for for being old.”  “He told […]

Facebook Ads From Unknown Backer Take Aim at Brexit Plan

LONDON — Prime Minister Theresa May has struggled to build support for her plan for Britain’s exit from the European Union. Now, it turns out, some of the opposition has come from an unknown organization posting ads to millions of people on Facebook. In the past 10 months, the organization spent more than 250,000 pounds on ads pushing for a more severe break from the European Union than Mrs. May has planned. The ads reached 10 million to 11 million people, according to a report published on […]

Facebook’s fight against fake news is actually working. Sort of.

Facebook’s promise to fight fake news is finally starting to work. Well, sort of. It depends on where you look.  Almost two years after the company vowed to start taking its fake news problem seriously, some of those efforts are beginning to pay off, even if things aren’t moving nearly fast enough for some. The social network has introduced a new series called “The Hunt for False News,” which includes specific examples of widely shared fake news on the platform.  It’s partly a status update on the […]

How to view your notification history on Android

If you’ve used Android for quite some time, it’s likely you’ve mistakenly swiped away a notification or two for one reason or another. Maybe you’re swiping in a hurry like my colleague Dieter Bohn, or you accidentally cleared everything in the notification drawer without meaning to, or maybe you just wonder where all your notifications go, and if there’s a historical list of them, after you’ve dismissed them. But don’t worry, as you can find everything from missed messages, emails, app updates, and even system messages in […]

Papago GoSafe S810 dash cam review: It nails video, but lacks a battery and integrated GPS

The Papago GoSafe S810 camera duo has more “safety” features than you can shake a stick at, including one I’d never even considered—stop sign recognition. Yup. It recognizes stop signs and pops the digital equivalent up on its display. Kind of fun, but as I’m wont to say: If you need this stuff, call a cab or wait for self-driving vehicles. Admonishment aside, the $170 S810 is more than just fancy features. It takes very, very good day and night video, and the rear camera, unlike some […]

This city is letting people try out self-driving cars for free

If you’re visiting Arlington, Texas, and have been itching to try out an autonomous vehicle, you’re in luck.  Starting Friday, three Drive.ai self-driving cars (and eventually five) will be available to ride — for anyone, not just office workers, city officials, or a select group of “early riders.” Back in July, Drive.ai piloted the autonomous Nissan NV200 vans in Frisco, Texas. The Arlington deployment will be around for the next year. “This is a not a quick demonstration,” CEO Bijit Halder said in a phone call this […]

Google is using software to make the Pixel 3’s screen corners even rounder

Google is extending its design atheistic that favors subtle, rounded corners even further by manually adjusting the Pixel 3’s screen corners during start up, as first spotted by an eagle-eyed Reddit user earlier today. Material Theme, an updated version of the company’s software design philosophy, is the driving force behind the Gmail and Chrome redesigns of late, and you’ll notice it most prevalently in the new Chrome tab design that eschews rough and pronounced corners for softer, rounded ones. Google isn’t going so far as to turn […]

Julian Assange Says He’s Suing Ecuador for ‘Violating His Fundamental Rights’

Julian Assange announced on Friday that he was suing the Ecuadorean government for “violating his fundamental rights,” claiming that his longtime hosts at the country’s embassy in London are limiting his contact with the outside world and censoring his speech. His legal team in the matter, led by the former Spanish judge Baltasar Garzón, revealed the suit at a news conference in Quito, where the lawsuit was filed. The action aims to prevent strict new rules governing Mr. Assange’s visitors and online activity from taking effect. The […]
