families urge using new dna tech to id pearl harbor unknowns

William Edward Mann enlisted in the Navy after graduating from high school in rural Washington state. A guitar player, he picked up the ukulele while stationed in Hawaii. He’s been presumed dead since Dec. 7, 1941, when Japanese planes bombed Pearl Harbor and set off a massive explosion that sank his battleship, the USS Arizona, launching the U.S. into World War II. Now, his niece is among some families of crew members who are demanding the U.S. military take advantage of advances in DNA technology to identify 85 sailors and Marines from the Arizona who were buried as unknowns. They say the military has disinterred and identified remains from other Pearl Harbor battleships and should do the same for their loved ones. “These men matter and they served. They gave their lives for…

sec’s gensler says crypto investors need more protection

The chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission said that investors need more protection in the cryptocurrency market, which he said is “rife with fraud, scams and abuse.” Gary Gensler, appointed by President Joe Biden to lead the body that regulates securities markets, listed several areas where crypto needed to be reigned in or regulated, particularly with regard to money laundering, sanctions, tax collection and extortion via ransomware. “Right now, we just don’t have enough investor protection in crypto,” Gensler said in remarks to the Aspen Institute’s forum on security, “Frankly, at this time, it’s more like the Wild West.” Digital currencies, like Bitcoin, have been left largely unregulated by major governments up to this point. In June, China ordered cryptocurrency mining operations shut down and banks started refusing to help customers with…

sony’s profits gain on ‘demon slayer,’ digital camera demand

Sony’s April-June profit rose 9% to 211.8 billion yen ($1.9 billion) as the Japanese electronics and video game maker continued to benefit from a sales perk from the hit “Demon Slayer” animation film. Healthy results in its music streaming business and robust demand for digital cameras, image sensors and the PlayStation 5 video game console helped Tokyo-based Sony Corp.’s quarterly sales grow 15% to 2.26 trillion yen ($20.7 billion), the company said this week. Sony had posted a 193.6 billion yen quarterly profit the previous year. Sony raised its full year profit forecast to 700 billion yen ($6.4 billion) from an earlier 660 billion yen ($6 billion). The higher projection is still a drop from the 1 trillion yen profit Sony had racked up the previous fiscal year, when its sales jumped as…

2nm race exploring the limits of the silicon-based processor

Apple changed the game when it announced its M1 silicon processor, pushing the boundaries of what some thought was possible. Since then, big chipmakers are now bending the laws of physics to create nano transistors that can compete, and power the next generation of smartphones, desktops, televisions, and other devices. For consumers, it means huge innovations are just around the corner, alongside more powerful technologies. THE 2-NANOMETER RACE Though it would be unfair to give Apple all of the credit for innovations in the nano transistor industry, there’s no denying that the Cupertino company had companies running scared. For the first time, Apple could develop and manufacture its industry-leading phones, laptops, and accessories in-house, without relying on third parties like Intel and their schedule to push out new products. As a result,…

square to buy installment payment firm afterpay in $29b deal

Digital payments company Square Inc. says it has agreed to acquire Afterpay, which provides a “buy now, pay later” option for merchants, in an all-stock deal valued at about $29 billion. Square allows retailers to process credit card transactions using devices that plug into tablets or smartphones. The San Francisco-based company said it plans to integrate Afterpay into its services, enabling merchants to offer customers the option to pay for goods later without relying on a credit card. Afterpay users would be able to manage their installment payments directly in Square’s cash app. “Square and Afterpay have a shared purpose,” Square CEO Jack Dorsey said in a statement. Some 70 million people use Square’s cash app. As of June 30, Afterpay was serving more than 16 million users and nearly 100,000 merchants,…
