wwdc 2019: new 6k monitor looks set to headline

PLENTY OF CHATTER ABOUT A NEW EXTERNAL MAC MONITOR As always, there exists an abundance of rumors regarding what Apple will unleash at its next event. The Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) is set to hit San Jose on June 3 until June 7, and attendees are encouraged to join thousands of “coders, creators, and crazy ones” in order to achieve the “insanely great”. Sounds great, right? Well, it probably will be for the lucky thousands of attendees who will engage with more than 100 tech and design-focused sessions, and have the opportunity to learn from Apple’s own engineers. Alongside the opportunity to connect with fellow app developers, there will also be a chance for keen coders to receive expert guidance on their own app designs. Apple usually kicks off each conference with a…

arizona lawmakers ok ban on cellphone use while driving

The small list of states that allow either texting while driving or hand-held cellphone use is shrinking after the Arizona House last week overwhelmingly approved a cellphone use ban and sent it to Republican Gov. Doug Ducey for his expected signature. Arizona, Missouri and Montana had been the only three states that hadn’t banned texting while driving. Arizona will join 16 others that bans all use of a hand-held cellphones while driving. The 44-16 vote on the toughest of three proposals debated by House lawmakers comes after years of inaction by the Republican-controlled Legislature. The Senate earlier approved it on a 20-9 vote. Ducey has pledged to sign the measure, which takes effect in January 2021. More than two dozen cities enacted local bans that will remain in effect until then. The House rejected…

tesla wants to cut size of board from 11 directors to 7

Tesla plans to cut its board of directors from 11 to seven in a move the electric-car maker says will allow the board to act more nimbly and efficiently. Tesla says the four directors who will depart aren’t leaving because of any disagreement with the company. The board has come under closer scrutiny since August, when CEO Elon Musk tweeted that he had lined up funding and was considering taking the Palo Alto, California-based company private at $420 per share. That didn’t happen, and regulators accused Musk of securities fraud. Tesla disclosed the upcoming changes to the board in regulatory filings last Friday. Brad Buss, a director since 2009, and Linda Johnson Rice, who joined the board in 2017, plan to leave at the annual meeting in June. Two early Tesla investors, Stephen Jurvetson…

tesla ceo plans to hand the car keys to robots next year

Tesla CEO Elon Musk expects to start converting the company’s electric cars into fully self-driving vehicles next year as part of an audacious plan to create a network of robotic taxis to compete against Uber and other ride-hailing services. The vision sketched out during an event at Tesla’s Silicon Valley headquarters requires several leaps of faith — something that the zealous investors and consumers who view Musk as a technological genius often are willing to take. But self-driving car experts fear Musk is shirking public safety in an effort to boost Tesla’s stock and sell more of the company’s electric cars. This amid lingering questions about whether the 15-year-old automaker can consistently make money. “It sounds like a pipe dream that he’s selling people,” said Raj Rajkumar, an electrical and computer engineering…

5 reasons experts think autonomous cars are many years away

In the world of autonomous vehicles, Pittsburgh, Phoenix and Silicon Valley are bustling hubs of development and testing. But ask those involved in self-driving vehicles when we might actually see them carrying passengers in every city, and you’ll get an almost universal answer: Not anytime soon. An optimistic assessment is 10 years. Many others say decades as researchers try to conquer a number of obstacles. That makes Tesla’s declarations that it will offer fully autonomous vehicles by the second quarter of next year all the more striking. The company announced its ambitious plans during an investor conference this week. But skeptics doubt that Tesla can pull it off. Here are the problems that researchers must overcome to start giving rides without humans behind the wheel: SNOW AND WEATHER When it’s heavy enough to cover the…
