samsung folding screen phone to go on sale after big delay

Samsung says it will start selling its highly anticipated folding phone, after the original launch date was delayed by months because of embarrassing problems with the screen. The South Korean tech giant had put the Galaxy Fold’s launch on hold after reviewers encountered problems with the device’s innovative folding screen, which the company indicated on Thursday have now been resolved. “During the past several months, Samsung has been refining the Galaxy Fold to ensure it delivers the best possible experience,” the company said in a statement. “Not only we improved the Galaxy Fold’s design and construction, but also took the time to rethink the entire consumer journey.” The nearly $2,000 phone will launch on Sept. 6 in South Korea, and Sept. 18 in France, Germany and Britain, with versions for next generation…

friends with benefits: can facebook tackle your love life?

Facebook is tackling a new frontier: love. Facebook Dating, a matchmaking service the company already offers in Brazil, Canada and 17 other countries, arrives in the U.S. on Thursday. But after years of privacy missteps by the social network, will people trust it with their love lives? For a company that’s also developing its own digital currency and dabbling in e-commerce, love is another step toward reaching into all aspects of human existence. Although many features resemble what other matchmaking services offer, Facebook’s version promises to be different, just as Tinder brought swiping and Bumble brought female-first messaging. Your Facebook Dating profile will be separate from your main one, but it will let you tap your network of friends to identify “secret crushes.” Facebook Dating, a mobile-only service that’s free to…

ntsb: autopilot flaw, driver inattention caused tesla crash

A design flaw in Tesla’s Autopilot semi-autonomous driving system and driver inattention combined to cause a Model S electric car to slam into a firetruck parked along a California freeway, a government investigation has found. The National Transportation Safety Board determined that the driver was overly reliant on the system and that Autopilot’s design let him disengage from driving. The agency released a brief report that outlined the probable cause of the January 2018 crash in the high occupancy vehicle lane of Interstate 405 in Culver City near Los Angeles. The findings raise questions about the effectiveness of Autopilot, which was engaged but failed to brake in the Culver City crash and three others in which drivers were killed since 2016. No one was hurt in the I-405 crash involving a 2014 Tesla Model…

judge rejects attempt to raise bail of ex-google engineer

A federal judge has rejected a government recommendation that he impose a $10 million bail bond on a former Google engineer who is accused of stealing self-driving car technology before joining Uber’s effort to build robotic taxis. The preliminary ruling issued Wednesday by U.S. District Judge Nathanael Cousins means Anthony Levandowski remains free on the $2 million bail he posted last week after being charged with heisting Google’s trade secrets before defecting to Uber in 2016. Google affiliate Waymo is trying to create a fleet of fully autonomous taxis to compete against Uber and Lyft, which are both losing huge amounts of money partly because their ride-hailing services pay people to steer the vehicles. The government says it believes the wealth Levandowski accumulated as a former star Google engineer, as well…
