moon: artists on spacex first commercial flyby

The history of space flight and the moon are forever entwined since the Apollo missions and we have been getting closer to another human setting foot on the satellite since Eugene Cernan left his footprints and his daughter’s initials in the lunar dust in December 1972. Japanese entrepreneur Yusaku Maezawa won’t quite emulate him but hopes to get closer than anybody else has since Apollo 17 returned to Earth. On Monday Maezawa was unveiled at a SpaceXpress conference alongside CEO Elon Musk to announce that he had secured tickets for himself and several handpicked companions for a week-long journey into space scheduled to launch in 2023. This will be the first manned commercial flight to the moon ever attempted. “I choose to go to the moon” – Yusaku Maezawa, 42, is the first…

bill gates calls for more global education assessments data

Bill Gates is rallying behind school quality in developing nations with a push for more assessment data, a new initiative that links the Microsoft co-founder’s signature U.S. education priorities with his more prominent global philanthropy work. The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation as the world’s largest philanthropy issued its latest “Goalkeepers” report on Tuesday, urging for more comparable student assessment data worldwide and help getting girls through their schooling. The majority of the Gates foundation’s resources are dedicated to global health and development, with much of that work rooted in deep poverty issues in Africa, from tackling malaria, HIV and contraceptives to boosting crop production and financial services. In the U.S., Gates and his wife focus on reshaping America’s struggling school systems. This year marks new intertwining priorities for Gates’ domestic and international…

how apple’s safari browser will try to thwart data tracking

New privacy features in Apple’s Safari browser seek to make it tougher for companies such as Facebook to track you. Companies have long used cookies to remember your past visits. This can be helpful for saving sign-in details and preferences. But now they’re also being used to profile you in order to fine-tune advertising to your tastes and interests. Cookie use goes beyond visiting a particular website. As other sites embed Facebook “like” and “share” buttons, for instance, Facebook’s servers are being pinged and can access your stored cookies. That means Facebook now knows you frequent celebrity gossip sites or read news with a certain political bent. Ads can be tailored to that. Here’s how Safari is getting tougher in dealing with that. NO MORE GRACE PERIOD Safari used to wait 24 hours from your…

dual camera: a new era of photography

SMILE FOR THE CAMERA When Tim Cook unveiled the iPhone XS earlier in the month, all eyes were on the new XS Max, and the more affordable iPhone XR model, designed to appease price-conscious consumers. It makes sense - many of the iPhone XS features were leaked ahead of its release, and critics and fans alike already knew what to expect. But now that the dust has settled and a trio of iPhones are available to purchase online and at Apple Stores around the world, it’s time to unpack the technology inside of the new devices - namely, the camera inside of the iPhone XS and XS Max. This week, we’re taking a closer look at the iPhone XS camera, explore the brand new sensors, processors, and algorithms that will make for…

amazon launches small business shop

Amazon wants you to shop small. The online retailer launched a new section of its site Monday called Amazon Storefronts, which only lists products sold by small- and medium-sized businesses in the U.S. The company says smaller companies can get lost among its millions of goods and it wants a way for shoppers to find them more easily. Amazon says more than 1 million products from about 20,000 businesses were selected to be featured on the site, based on ratings from customers. Similar stores will be launched on Amazon’s sites in Germany and the United Kingdom. The new site is also a way for Amazon to try to boost its image at a time when it’s facing scrutiny for its growing power, as well as continued criticism that it is taking business from…

too much screen time? new phone controls for you and kids

Apple and Google want to help you spend less time on their phones — really. Like that time you checked Facebook at 3 a.m. Stats don’t lie. Their new tools for managing screen time will let you see how often you picked up the phone after bedtime or how long you’re on Instagram at work (shame on you). Apple’s tools also let you control how long your kids spend on their devices, if you’re concerned that screens are taking time away from sleep, homework or exercise. Apple’s tools launch Tuesday as part of the free iOS 12 software update for iPhones, iPads and the iPod Touch. Google’s controls are being tested on its Pixel-branded Android phones. Here’s how the controls work. FOR THE KIDS Apple’s new controls for kids let you manage their time on…
