screenless: free, light and connected

Over the past several years, Apple engineers have been hard at work perfecting the iPhone. In many ways, the company has already achieved its mission, with the 2018 launch of the iPhone XS bringing the most advanced hardware of all time to consumer technology. But as sales of the iPhone have plateaued and innovations like the HomePod have failed to make the impact many had predicted, critics and analysts alike are pondering the next step for personal tech. After generations of the iPhone and iPad, some predict that we’re on the cusp of a technological revolution: a world where the iPhone no longer matters. We’re now seeing the dismembering of the iPhone, with the Cupertino firm literally tearing apart the device into smaller pieces, and creating technology that allows us…

new tesla chair must rein in ceo musk at key moment

It won’t be an easy job. Whoever becomes the new chairman of Tesla Motors will face the formidable task of reining in Elon Musk, the charismatic, visionary chief executive with an impulsive streak, while also helping Musk achieve his dream of turning Tesla into a profitable, mass-market producer of environmental-friendly electric cars. Musk is giving up the chairman’s role under a settlement announced Saturday (29) with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Besides a new chairman, Tesla was also ordered to appoint two new, independent members to its board. A more assertive board could provide the kind of tighter oversight that many legal experts, and Tesla investors, say is overdue for a company of Tesla’s market value. The settlement stemmed from a lawsuit the SEC filed charging Musk with misleading investors in August with a…

science fiction into reality: nobel prize honors laser work

Scientists from the United States, Canada and France won the Nobel Prize in physics Tuesday for revolutionizing the use of lasers in research, finding ways to make them deliver more powerful flashes of light and even to act like tiny tweezers. Their work paved the way for laser eye surgery to improve vision and studies that can manipulate cells and their innards. Two winners also made history for other reasons. Arthur Ashkin, the American who developed “optical tweezers,” became the oldest Nobel Prize laureate at age 96. And Donna Strickland, of the University of Waterloo in Canada, became only the third woman to win the physics Nobel, and the first in 55 years.

longtime facebook exec adam mosseri new head of instagram

Facebook has named Adam Mosseri, a 10-year veteran at the company, as the head of Instagram. The appointment comes after the photo-sharing app’s co-founders resigned last week without giving a clear reason. Kevin Systrom, Instagram’s CEO, and Mike Krieger, its other co-founder, announced Mosseri’s appointment Monday on the company blog. Mosseri was named as Instagram’s head of product in May. He began as a designer at Facebook and most recently led its news feed. The founders, and Mosseri himself, sought to reassure users that Mosseri will “hold true” to Instagram’s values and community. Some users have worried since last week’s surprise departures that Instagram will become more like its parent company, becoming getting cluttered with features and sucking up personal data. In a statement, Mosseri reiterated his desire to keep Instagram’s unique culture that…
