you can stymie the iphone x face id - but it takes some work

Apple is offering a nifty way to unlock its new iPhone X — just stare at it. Face ID, Apple’s name for its facial-recognition technology, replaces the fingerprint sensor found on other models. How well does it work — not just technically, but in everyday use? After all, it’s much easier to align your finger with the sensor than to align your face with the phone. The iPhone X costs about $1,000 — $300 more than the iPhone 8. Advance orders began this past Friday, and Apple is now giving delivery times of five to six weeks. Apple says it will have limited supplies at stores for same-day pickup on Friday, but you’ll have to get there early. BETTER FACE DETECTION Many rival Android phones already use facial-recognition technology. Samsung also has an unlock feature…

google is flying high now, but regulatory threats loom

Is it possible to win so much that you end up losing? That’s one question facing Google and some of its tech compatriots as they prepare to testify before congressional investigations into Russian meddling next week. Google continues to pile on billions in ad revenue every quarter. But like its chief rival Facebook, it’s being pressured to rein in its hyper-efficient advertising machine. Google and Facebook dominate the U.S. digital ad market — Google will take 42 percent and Facebook 21 percent of U.S. digital ad revenue this year, according to eMarketer. But pressure to limit the spread of fake news and curb foreign influence in elections could crimp revenue and raise costs in the future if the companies, for instance, have to add further human oversight to their machine-powered algorithms.

google-bred waymo aims to shift robotic cars into next gear

Google’s self-driving car spin-off is accelerating efforts to convince the public that its technology is almost ready to safely transport people without any human assistance at all. Waymo, hatched from a Google project started eight years ago, showed off its progress Monday during a rare peek at a closely guarded testing facility located 120 miles (193 kilometers) southeast of San Francisco. That’s where its robots complete their equivalent of driver’s education. The tour included giving more than three dozen reporters rides in Chrysler Pacifica minivans traveling through faux neighborhoods and expressways that Waymo has built on a former Air Force base located in the Californian Central Valley city of Atwater. The minivans smoothly cruised the roads — driver’s seat empty and passengers in the back — at speeds of up to 35 mph…

new tech, 3-d holograms preserve holocaust survivor stories

Fritzie Fritzshall knows she is running out of time. She knows the day will come when she won’t be here to describe being herded onto a boxcar, hearing the cries that turned to whimpers that turned to the silence that signaled another death. And she won’t be able to tell of the doors opening to the Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp, where an old prisoner, as he unloaded the dead, whispered to her in Yiddish to lie to the guards about her age. That lie kept her out of a line to the gas chambers. Preserving her story is why she’s on stage, or at least a three-dimensional likeness of her is on stage, at the Illinois Holocaust Museum and Education Center in Skokie, just outside Chicago. Fritzshall is one of 13 Holocaust survivors who…

pinterest ceo ben silbermann talks ai rivals

Pinterest often gets lumped in with social media apps like Instagram, Snapchat or Facebook, but people don’t use it to meet new people or to keep in touch with old classmates. It’s designed more to let you get in touch with your own interests, tastes and hobbies. “There other people also using it, but the goal is not to make friends with them or talk with them,” says Ben Silbermann, the company’s CEO and co-founder. “It’s really just to get ideas for your life.” The online visual discovery service launched in 2010. Still privately held, Pinterest is valued at more than $12 billion based on its latest funding round. It has 200 million monthly users. Silbermann spoke to media about new technologies and competition. The interview has been edited for length and clarity. Q:…

gov’t won’t pursue talking car mandate

The Trump administration has quietly set aside plans to require new cars to be able to wirelessly talk to each other, auto industry officials said, jeopardizing one of the most promising technologies for preventing traffic deaths. The Obama administration proposed last December that all new cars and light trucks come equipped with technology known as vehicle-to-vehicle communications, or V2V. It would enable vehicles to transmit their location, speed, direction and other information 10 times per second. That lets cars detect, for example, when another vehicle is about to run a red light or coming around a blind turn in time to prevent a crash. The administration has decided not to pursue a final V2V mandate, said two auto industry officials who have spoken with White House and Transportation Department officials and two…
