YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki published her quarterly letter to creators today, which included very strong language regarding the EU's controversial copyright reform directive. Specifically, her letter focused on Article 13, the so-called “meme ban” that states that any site with a large amount of user-generated content – like Facebook or YouTube, for example – will be responsible for taking down content that infringes on copyright. Wojcicki says the way this legislation is written could “shut down the ability” of millions of people to upload to YouTube. The legislation she's referring to is Article 13 of the European Union Directive on Copyright in the Digital Single Market, which the EU Parliament just recently voted to back. The Directive contains several parts, including another concerning “link tax,” which gives publishers the right to ask for paid licenses when online platforms share their articles and stories. But YouTube is most concerned with Article 13, which impacts sites with user-generated content. In order to comply with the law, sites like YouTube would have to automatically scan and filter user uploads to ensure they aren't in violation of copyright. But today, users often express themselves by sampling, remixing, and creating content using music, pictures and videos that would otherwise be considered copyrighted material. However, even though memes and parodies are protected by previous laws (in some countries), these upload filters wouldn't be able to tell the difference between a copyright violation and a meme – and they'd block content that should be allowed. This is how Article 13 became to be known as the “meme ban.” However, the language in legislation isn't clear on how enforcement should take place – it doesn't say, for example, that sites have to use upload filters. Others believe that YouTube's existing Content ID system, which scans videos after upload, would be sufficient. YouTube, for its part, seems to be believe that Article 13 will require more than the existing Content ID system to be compliant. Writes Wojcicki, “Article 13 as written threatens to shut down the ability of millions of people — from creators like you to everyday users — to upload content to platforms like YouTube. It threatens to block users in the EU from viewing content that is already live on the channels of creators everywhere. This includes YouTube's incredible video library of educational content, such as language classes, physics tutorials and other how-to's,” she says. The CEO also says Article 13 will threaten [...]

When tech companies explore diversity and inclusion initiatives, there's a risk that marginalized groups may feel “othered” and reduced to a number. That's what Square has found, the company revealed in the first of a series of posts on Square's diversity and inclusion efforts. So instead of emphasizing demographic data, Square is taking a new approach — one that entails deep dives into its inclusion efforts. Regarding promotions and compensation — two key places where unconscious bias can often show up — Square has begun to implement three specific initiatives. One is pushing managers to consider promotion readiness for everyone on their team, explicitly highlighting the people who have been at their current job level longer than the median time for people in similar roles who were promoted in the past two promotion cycles. “Although time in job level is just one metric in a multi-dimensional promotion consideration process, these primers help ensure that every team member is considered, not just those who are more vocal or in more visible roles,” Square describes on its blog. And before someone gets a raise, Square's people analytics team conducts a full audit of pay fairness by gender, race and age. The goal is to mitigate bias by checking for any statistical evidence of it before the decision becomes final. “We check for potential disparities both overall and within specific jobs, and review any outliers we find,” Square says. “While this lengthens the overall promotion process, it gives us the opportunity to make any necessary adjustments before finalizing employees' new compensation.” Square is not at the point where diverse people are evenly distributed across high-paying roles, but says addressing that is part of the plan. Square's series on these topics comes almost 18 months after the company released its first diversity report. Last year, Square was 36.7 percent female globally, and 57.3 percent white, 6.4 percent black and 5.8 percent Latinx in the U.S. “Reporting is important, but it doesn't appear to be driving meaningful change or increasing our public accountability,” Square explains on its site. “Even worse, what these reports do seem to accomplish is the commoditization of the communities the practice was intended to support. Many employees tell us these reports make them feel like they're reduced to numbers. And that sucks.” While Square still has plans to share demographic data, the company is looking to be more transparent and communicative around all of its efforts. The purpose [...]

Netflix's commitment to growing its original content collection will see the company again returning to debt markets to raise more financing, the company announced today. According a release published to its investors site, Netflix says it plans to raise $2 billion to help fund new content, including “content acquisitions, production and development, capital expenditures, investments, working capital and potential acquisitions and strategic transactions.” The funds will be raised in the form of senior unsecured notes, denominated in U.S. dollars and euros, it said. This debt offering is the sixth time in under four years that Netflix is raising $1 billion or more through bonds, noted Variety, which was among the first to report the news. As of September 30, Netflix's long-term debt had reached $8.34 billion, up 71% from $4.89 billion in the year ago quarter, it said during its last earnings, Variety's report also noted. Netflix recently explained during its Q3 2018 earnings that it needs to continue to invest in original programming in order to remain competitive. “We recognize we are making huge cash investments in content, and we want to assure our investors that we have the same high confidence in the underlying economics as our cash investments in the past. These investments we see as very likely to help us to keep our revenue and operating profits growing for a very long time ahead,” the letter to shareholders read. Netflix also pointed to the increasing competition in the industry as one of the reasons why original content investment was so critical, adding that it didn't only compete with linear TV, YouTube, gaming, social media, DVDs and pay-per-view, but with a number of new and upcoming streaming services, as well. “Content companies such as WarnerMedia and Disney/Fox are moving to self-distribute their own content; tech firms like Apple, Amazon and others are investing in premium content to enhance their distribution platforms,” the letter also stated. “Amid these massive competitors on both sides, plus traditional media firms, our job is to make Netflix stand out so that when consumers have free time, they choose to spend it with our service,” it had said.

The Trump administration has a major ask to make of big tech companies. In a meeting at the White House today, officials will ask Amazon, Microsoft, Google and IBM, among others, to make it easier for employees to do stints in the government. It's a heavy lift, of course, asking well-compensated workers to take time out from demanding gigs for the betterment of federal and state governments. A number of companies, including Facebook and Google, already allow employees to take time off for this exact reason. However, the particularly polarizing nature of politics in 2018 and all of the ill-will surrounding the current administration, have further complicated the ask. The Washington Post quotes an anonymous official, who stressed the importance of “put[ting] politics aside” for the greater good. “This event on Monday is not just about our efforts, it's about our successor, and their successor after that,” the person told the paper. “It's good for the country in the long term for technology professionals to have civil service in their career at some point.” The notoriously slow pace of government innovation was something the Obama administration looked to address during its eight years in power, and Trump's White House appears to be interested in continuing that trend. Ahead of his inauguration, Trump met with tech leaders, including Tim Cook, Jeff Bezos and Satya Nadella, though the administration's policies have been an on-going source of friction with Silicon Valley [...]

Pair Eyewear, the customizable glasses brand for kids, has today announced the close of a $1 million Seed round, with investors including Corigin Ventures, Outbound Ventures, Precursor Ventures, and Bolt Ventures. The company has a simple premise: Pair sells affordable glasses to children. But beyond simple frames, Pair sells both base frames (regular glasses) and top frames (snap-on fronts for base frames that let you change the color and style of glasses). Base frames, which include hand-polished acetate frames and anti-reflective, shatterproof polycarbonate lenses, cost $95 and top frames can be purchased for $25. While the product is glasses, the mission is to change the way that kids and parents think about glasses, changing that perception from one of a medical device to a fun accessory. Much of the inspiration for Pair came from Warby Parker, so it makes sense that Pair also has a give-back program. For every pair of Pair glasses sold, another pair goes to a child in need through and partnership with EYElliance, a non-profit founded by the Vision Spring founder Dr. Jordan Kassalow. Pair took yet another page out of the Warby Parker book by also offering at-home try-on. However, unlike Warby which sends a handful of real glasses to your home, Pair sends out cardboard replicas of their designs for kids to try on. That way, parents don't have to worry about sending back the try-on pairs of glasses. The company says that since launch, 15 percent of customers have come back to purchase additional top frames. It's worth noting that, between Pair's launch and now, Warby Parker has entered the field of competition, launching a pilot program for kids glasses in January of this year. “What sets us apart and what we're focused on is designing for kids and by kids,” said co-founder and co-CEO Nathan Kondamuri. “We want to change the narrative around what glasses can be for kids, and that mission and focus will set us apart and drive us on a different path [from competitors].” Pair launched in October of 2017, and this latest round brings total funding to $1.15 million. The company says it will use a big chunk of the funding on national marketing initiatives to spread the word about the brand. Editor's Note: Pair's total amount of funding raised has been corrected from $1.5 million to $1.15 million. The round type was also corrected from a Series A to a seed round. [...]

eBay today launched a new service to help users unload their old smartphones on its online marketplace. With eBay Instant Selling, as the service is called, consumers can list their device info, add images, then receive an instant voucher that can be used towards the purchase of a new device from eBay. They'll also receive an eBay shipping label to send their old phone to eBay. The company claims it will offer a higher return than competitors' sites, like Gazelle or EcoATM as well as carriers' trade-in programs like those from AT&T and Verizon, plus Apple's own Give Back program. It says that standard programs tend to offer 40 to 50 percent off the average market selling price, but eBay will provide up to 40% higher than trade-in values, on average. Currently, eligible smartphones include Unlocked, Verizon and AT&T, Samsung Galaxy S7 to S9 + and Apple iPhone 6S 16GB through iPhone X 256GB. In November, eBay will add T-Mobile, Sprint and Google Pixel and select LG products to that list, it says. If this all sounds familiar, that's because eBay has tried its hand at similar services in the past – repeatedly. In 2013, it shut down an older “Instant Sale” service that focused on reselling consumer electronics, then returned in 2016 with a trade-in site called “Quick Sale.” However, Quick Sale relied on another shuttered eBay service, eBay Valet, which involved having eBay top sellers handle the device sales. To use the new Instant Selling service, consumers can visit ebay.com/s/phone, then enter their device info and upload photos. After accepting the terms, they'll receive their instant quote and can opt to print the shipping label to turn in their device to eBay. The company was unable to provide more information about the revenue sharing portion of the program, as it's in the quiet period in advance of earnings. It did, however, provide a comparison chart of top devices and how they would sell on competitors' sites. “Millions of Americans have unused phones in their homes and simply don't realize how much their devices are worth, probably because trade-in values are typically so low,” said Alyssa Steele, Vice President of Hard Goods, eBay, in a statement about the launch. “With Instant Selling, people can find out exactly how much their phone is worth, and sell their phone within a matter of minutes to immediately help fund the holidays, or maybe something off their personal wish [...]

Minds, a decentralized social network, has raised $6 million in Series A funding from Medici Ventures, Overstock.com's venture arm. Overstock CEO Patrick Byrne will join the Minds Board of Directors. What is a decentralized social network? The creators, who originally crowdfunded their product, see it as an anti-surveillance, anti-censorship, and anti-“big tech” platform that ensures that no one party controls your online presence. And Minds is already seeing solid movement. “In June 2018, Minds saw an enormous uptick in new Vietnamese of hundreds of thousands users as a direct response to new laws in the country implementing an invasive ‘cybersecurity' law which included uninhibited access to user data on social networks like Facebook and Google (who are complying so far) and the ability to censor user content,” said Minds founder Bill Ottman. “There has been increasing excitement in recent years over the power of blockchain technology to liberate individuals and organizations,” said Byrne. “Minds' work employing blockchain technology as a social media application is the next great innovation toward the mainstream use of this world-changing technology.” Interestingly, Minds is a model for the future of hybrid investing, a process of raising some cash via token and raising further cash via VC. This model ensures a level of independence from investors but also allows expertise and experience to presumably flow into the company. Ottman, for his part, just wants to build something revolutionary. “The rise of an open source, encrypted and decentralized social network is crucial to combat the big-tech monopolies that have abused and ignored users for years. With systemic data breaches, shadow-banning and censorship, people over the world are demanding a digital revolution. User-safety, fair economies, and global freedom of expression depend on it – we are all in this battle together,” said Ottman. [...]

Pulumi, a Seattle-based startup that lets developers specify and manage their cloud infrastructure using the programming language they already know, today announced that it has raised a $15 million Series A funding round led by Madrona Venture Group. Tola Capital also participated in this round and Tola managing director Sheila Gulati will get a seat on the Pulumi board, where she'll join former Microsoft exec and Madrona managing director S. Somasegar. In addition to announcing its raise, the company also today launched its commercial platform, which builds upon Pulumi's open-source work. “Since launch, we've had a lot of inbound interest, both on the community side — so you're seeing a lot of open source contributions, and they're really impactful contributions, including, for example, community-led support for VMware and OpenStack,” Pulumi co-founder and CEO Eric Rudder told me. “So we're actually seeing a lot of vibrancy in the open-source community. And at the same time, we have a lot of inbound interest on the commercial side of things. That is, teams wanting to operationalize Pulumi and put it into production and wanting to purchase the product.” So to meet that opportunity, the team decided to raise a new round to scale out both its team and product. And now, that product includes a commercial offering of Pulumi with the company's new ‘team edition.' This new enterprise version includes support for unlimited users, integrations with third-party tools like GitHub and Slack, as well as role-based access controls and onboarding and 125 support. Like the free, single-user community edition, the team edition is delivered as a SaaS product and supports deployments to all of the major public and private cloud platforms. “We're all seeing the same things — the cloud is a foregone conclusion,” Tola's Gulati told me when I asked her why she was investing in Pulumi. “Enterprises have a lot of complexity as they come over the cloud. And so dealing with VMs, containers and serverless is a reality for these enterprises. And the ability to do that in a way that there's a single toolset, letting developers use real programming languages, letting them exist where they have skills today, but then allows them to bring the best of cloud into their organization. Frankly, Pulumi really has thought through the existing complexity, the developer reality, the IT and develop a relationship from both a runtime and deployment perspective. And they are the best that we've [...]

Shortly after announcing the Home Hub, a Google exec told me the timing was simply about “getting the product right.” Still, it's curious launching your own entry in the space more than half a year after a trio of hardware partners debuted their own. It's easy enough to give the company the benefit of the doubt when you consider all of the variables in a nascent tech category that's been around since, well, last summer. Amazon won the first to market prize with the Echo Show. It was a big, clunky thing, constructed from budget hardware — but it demonstrated the possibilities of adding a display to smart speaker. The Echo Show 2 refined the concept, with a more thoughtful design and improved hardware, while a trio of devices from LG, JBL and Lenovo offered a glimpse at what Google Assistant could bring to the table. The Home Hub, announced a few weeks back (alongside a slew of hardware from the company), attempts to deliver that in the hardware sweet spot. The smart screen sweet spot is, of course, a wholly subjective thing, depending on personal preferences and individual needs. It seems entirely plausible that next year will bring a Home Hub Max, but for now, Google's settled on a seven-inch display. That puts the product in between the Echo Spot (2.5) and new Show (10-inch). But in spite of sporting the same screen size as the first-gen Show, Google's managed to keep things compact. I've seen the “ it's just a tablet” criticism levied against the category by several angry/bored commenters. Google apparently said “screw it” and leaned in. The company insists that all of the tech was built from scratch here, but at first glance, it's hard to shake the feeling that you're looking at an OEM-ed Android tablet mounted on top of a speaker. I wasn't sure what to make of it, at first. It certainly wasn't what I was expecting from the Home Hub. I've grown to like it, though. From the front, it looks a bit like a tablet floating an inch above the table, mounted at a ~ a 25 to 30 angle. The design implies a future upgrade sporting a swiveling screen with an adjustable viewing angle, but as it stands, It's small but bright and easily spotted across the room. The speaker stand is fully covered in in fabric, in keeping with the longstanding aesthetic of the [...]

Every TechCrunch Disrupt Main Stage features an incredible roster of speakers representing the best and brightest leaders, luminaries and legends at the crossroads of startups, technology, entrepreneurism and investment. It's an opportunity to hear their perspective, what they've learned along the way and catch a glimpse of what the future might hold. Those vibrant interviews and panel discussions often lead to even more questions with little time to explore them. That's why we're bringing Q&A Sessions — which we debuted at Disrupt San Francisco 2018 — to Disrupt Berlin 2018. It's an opportunity to follow up and go deeper on crucial technologies and emerging trends. Unlike Main Stage events, Q&A Sessions feature a panel of subject experts, the audience members and a TechCrunch editor to moderate the 45-minute conversations. These sessions will cover a range of topics and correlate to Disrupt Berlin's category tracks — AI/Machine Learning, Blockchain, CRM/Enterprise, E-commerce, Education, Fintech, Healthtech/Biotech, Hardware, Robotics, IoT, Mobility and Gaming. Sessions are smaller and more intimate than Main Stage events, and that gives the audience and panelists more time to really dig into a topic. We'll curate questions from the audience, and it's the perfect opportunity to follow-up on any issues or questions that came up on the Main Stage. But hey, you can always kick off a fresh conversation, too. No Disrupt event is complete without a networking opportunity, and we've built in time following each Q&A Session for you to connect and engage with tech leaders, founders, investors and other attendees. Here's a significant detail. The only way to take part in a Q&A Session is to be there in person. We don't invite the media, and we don't record or live-stream the sessions. Space is limited, and admission is strictly first-come-first-served, so keep that in mind and get there early. We'll be adding the Q&A Sessions to the show's agenda soon, or you can sign up for event emails directly on the Disrupt Berlin 2018 website. TechCrunch Disrupt Berlin 2018 takes place on 29-30 November, and here's another important reminder: Early-bird ticket pricing ends on 24 October. Buy your pass before the deadline, and you'll save up to €500. Yowza! [...]

Drive.ai's autonomous ride-hailing pilot is now available beyond one town, if only just. The startup has launched its promised second pilot in Arlington, Texas, a short distance away from Frisco. If you're in the downtown area, you can hop in one of the company's self-driving vans (complete with displays to signal their intent) along fixed routes. This might be your choice if you're a sports fan -- the routes can take you to and from Dallas Cowboys games at AT&T Stadium, and Texas Rangers games at Globe Life Park. The pilot has "no cost," Drive.ai said. There's no indication of where Drive.ai will expand next, although that will likely depend in part on permission from individual cities. That, in turn, might hinge on the success of the two Texas pilots. It could be a while before it's evident whether or not the months-only technology is working as promised, especially when Arlington is the first test of a denser, multi-route network.

It's official: Samsung is updating its mixed-reality headset, the Odyssey. The new version, the Samsung HMD Odyssey+, promises to bring lifelike experiences through the Windows Mixed Reality platform. You can buy the headset in the US starting on October 22nd at Microsoft.com and Samsung.com. It will be available later this year in South Korea, Hong Kong, China and Brazil. The device will retail for $500. The device will sport dual 3.5-in AMOLED displays, with a combined resolution of 1440 x 1600 per eye. It supports 360-degree spatial sound that mimics 3D audio and comes with pre-paired 6DOF controllers, which promises quick setup and richer experiences. The Samsung HMD Odyssey+ weighs just 1.3 lbs, with an eye box measuring 146 mm (5.75 inches). The headset is easily adjustable to ensure every user will have a comfortable fit. The specs seem pretty similar to last year's model (and it will be offered at the same price). The question is whether there's a market for mixed-reality headsets. These devices are pricey while also still being pretty niche. Still, Engadget Editor Devindra Hardawar was impressed with the original version of the Odyssey when he took it out for a test drive, so it's safe to say if you're looking for a mixed-reality headset, this is a good bet.

German Finance Minister Olaf Scholz has called for a global minimum tax on large technology companies, The Telegraph reports, and it's a move aimed at ensuring tech firms pay taxes in the countries in which they generate revenue rather than only in the countries where they're headquartered. "We need a worldwide minimum tax level that no state may go below," Scholz told Welt am Sonntag. "We require coordinated mechanisms which prevent the displacement of revenues to tax havens." Large companies like Google, Apple, Facebook and Amazon have tended to establish European headquarters in countries with low corporate tax rates, such as Ireland and Luxembourg. But that hasn't stopped other countries, including France, Italy and the UK, from pursuing tax revenue that they feel they're owed. Germany's call comes as Europe is considering an interim tax on revenue generated by digital companies within the European Union. Under the plan, firms earning at least €750 million globally and €50 million inside the EU per year would be subject to a three percent tax until a more long-term solution was put into place. While Germany was a strong backer of the interim tax initially, it has since called for debate on the plan. Scholz has worked with France and the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development on the global minimum tax plan. However, even if other nations back the standard, it would take quite some time to implement. In the meantime, France's Finance Minister, Bruno Le Maire, who has led the push for the EU interim tax, is calling for the EU to make a decision on how to tax these large tech companies by the end of the year. And Austria, which currently holds the EU presidency, has put the issue at the top of its agenda. To accommodate those, like Germany, that are seeking a global minimum tax agreement, France has proposed a sunset clause for the EU digital tax plan, which would end the tax once a global strategy is reached.

It's hard to deny that Netflix is a powerhouse when it comes to original content. The company wants to ensure it remains on top, though, and to do that it's willing to go into debt. Netflix announced today that it plans to raise $2 billion in debt (rather than offering equity in the company) to fund "general corporate purposes, which may include content acquisitions, production and development, capital expenditures, investments, working capital and potential acquisitions and strategic transactions," according to a release. In its Q3 earnings report, Netflix emphasized how important it would be to continue to offer quality original programming, especially featuring new stars like the popular teen rom-com To All the Boys I've Loved Before, in order to stay competitive. The company's "Summer of Love" romantic comedies performed so well that it's working on another set of movies to match. The company is likely eyeing Disney's upcoming streaming service (perhaps the reason it cancelled both Marvel's Iron Fist and the more popular Luke Cage), as well as competition from HBO and Hulu. Amazon has Netflix squarely in its sights when it comes to streaming competition and original programming, so it's understandable the company wants to make sure it has enough capital to keep increasing subscriber growth and putting out content its viewers want to watch.

While the notch has become an unfortunate trend in the smartphone market, Vivo and Oppo have shown the world how a proper all-screen design should be done -- by stuffing the front cameras into a motorized pop-up module. About two months later, Honor caught up by showing off a vague Magic 2 teaser, in which you could make out what appeared to be a pop-up camera as well. But thanks to the help of six lucky Chinese celebrities, today we finally see the phone in action ahead of its October 31st launch, and as it turns out, we're actually looking at a different all-screen implementation here. First of all, we can now confirm that the Honor Magic 2 is indeed a slider phone, as shown in the videos shared by the presumably well-paid celebrities. To reveal the front cameras at the top (I see at least two there), simply slide the screen downwards with your thumb; and vice versa. According to singer Jiacheng Wu, the sliding mechanism felt "very good" (but of course he would say that) -- so good that fellow celebrity Enqi Zhong sang along to a beat consisting of the slider's clicking sound (ugh). Honor's very own TikTok channel even created a beat by clicking the phone and knocking it on the table. Enjoy. And then there's the back of the phone which wasn't shown before. As seen in Zhong's video and also Zanilia Zhao's photo above, this "debut premium edition" Magic 2 features a red-to-purple gradient mirror finish, along with a triple camera laid out similarly to the one on Huawei's P20 Pro. But just in case you can't tell the two phones apart without flipping them over, Honor moved the LED flash from the bottom to the top. Another photo from Zhao also highlights Honor's very own voice assistant, Yoyo, though it's most likely limited to Chinese-speaking users. Apart from that, there's no word on the device's other features nor specs, but given that the Magic series is meant to show off Honor's latest smartphone tricks, it's reasonable to expect flagship specs here. Honor's upcoming slider phone won't be the last of its kind. Xiaomi's Mix 3 -- due to be launched in Beijing this Thursday -- also appears to have the same notch-free sliding screen design. In fact, it was the Magic 2's IFA teaser that prompted Xiaomi president Lin Bin to immediately unveil his similar-looking device, which was [...]

You dropped it one too many times. Its battery life has gotten terrible. You just need a change. Whatever the reason, you're reading this because you've decided it's time to buy a new smartphone. Thankfully, there's never been a better time to be in the market for something new: Smartphones are more powerful than ever, and getting a truly great device doesn't require shelling out an obscene amount of money. (That said, if you're reading Engadget, there's a pretty good chance you were going to do just that.) Finding the right balance of features and price can be trickier than it needs to be, so we've put together a guide to help make this big decision a little easier. Pick a platform Before we go any further, we have a very important question: Are you an iOS devotee or a proud member of Team Android? If you've used a smartphone for a while, your allegiance is probably already set. That said, if you're mulling a switch or are gearing up to buy your first smartphone, here are a few things you should keep in mind. Android is by far the most widely used mobile operating system, largely because it's free to smartphone makers willing to abide by a certain set of rules. Because of that, you'll find a staggering number of Android devices to choose from, and you'll often see them incorporate new technologies before iPhones do. (Fact check: Niceties like NFC, in-display fingerprint sensors and nearly bezel-less screens all appeared on Android devices first.) Android is also the superior platform if you want to thoroughly customize your phone -- alternate launchers, widgets and icon packs mean the Android you see out of the box isn't the one you necessarily have to use. Chris Velazco/Engadget iOS, meanwhile, is our choice for people who are already invested in Apple's world. If you've sunk money into iTunes purchases or a MacBook, there's a strong argument for sticking with an iPhone. You don't need to be an Apple devotee to appreciate the company's smartphones though. They're among the easiest devices to just pick up and start using, and it's not uncommon for app developers to focus on iOS because of its popularity. (It definitely doesn't hurt that with a limited range of hardware, developers don't need to do as much work to ensure their apps run well across different iOS devices.) More importantly, iPhone owners don't need [...]

Today, Elon Musk announced via Twitter that the first Boring Company test tunnel under Los Angeles is almost finished. When it's complete, the system will be able to carry pedestrians, cyclists and private vehicles at speeds of 155 mph. People will be able to try the loop out for free at a special event at SpaceX headquarters in Hawthorne, CA, on December 10th. Opens Dec 10 — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) October 22, 2018 Opening event that night & free rides for the public next day — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) October 22, 2018 It's important to remember that Elon Musk tweeting a date doesn't actually mean that this will happen; a Twitter follower even went as far as to ask whether this was in "real time" or "Elon time," referring to the fact that Musk tends to overpromise when it comes to schedules. His response: I think real — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) October 22, 2018 This is just a test tunnel, but if it works, it will serve to prove the concept and increase interest in these types of tunnels to ease city congestion. The Boring Company is already working on a tunnel between DC and New York, and is aiming to begin digging one between Los Angeles and San Francisco next year. The latter has been pitched as a true hyperloop with pressurized pods, rather than just a high-speed tunnel. Via: CNET Source: Twitter [...]

The iPhone XR might be the most interesting phone Apple has made in years. Think about it: Apple just released its flagship XS and XS Max to a chorus of positive reviews, and now here it is, a month later, preparing to launch another smartphone that packs many of the same features found in those really expensive ones. For Apple, this is all a little unheard of. To add to the curiosity of it all, the R doesn't mean much either. Phil Schiller, gingerly gripping a cup of coffee across from me, said the letters Apple uses never stand for something specific. But then his voice softened a little as he started to tell me about what the letters mean to him. "I love cars and things that go fast, and R and S are both letters used to denote sport cars that are really extra special," he said with a smile. That's not exactly the answer I was hoping for, but I'm not sure what I should've expected from a) Apple's SVP of global marketing and b) a longtime fan of Porsches and Audis. Of course, Schiller's is just one interpretation, and the iPhone XR lends itself to many. It's the cheap iPhone. It's the depressing iPhone. It's, in my case, the fascinating iPhone. That's all right though: Apple was intent on building the right iPhone for as many people as possible, no matter their outlook. These years of work have led Apple to build one of its best smartphones ever, even if it's a little misunderstood. To understand just why the XR seems like such a curious change of pace, we need to look at Apple's track record. Since 2014, Apple has generally focused on the clockwork cadence of two phones per year. When the company deviated from that pattern, it was for a device like the iPhone SE in 2016, a cutesy phone that packed the guts of an iPhone 6S into the body of a 5S. It was a shift from the norm, sure, but it was built on top of plenty of familiar technology. Last year, Apple shook things up by releasing three iPhones: The 8 and 8 Plus were the natural sequels to the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. A few months later, the iPhone X was released, and it changed what it meant for an iPhone to be an iPhone. Apple knew well before then that it needed to [...]

Samsung and LG will forever be locked in a perpetual tug-of-war, and display tech is just one of the many fronts on which they tussle. Conference halls are their battleground, and at IFA this year, 8K TVs were their weapons. But where LG's model was a sneak peek at what may come to pass, Samsung's was ready to box up and sell. Speaking to Samsung execs this week, I asked them why on earth someone would by a 8K TV right now. Their case was simple: Why wouldn't they? 'Slow down Samsung, let's not get ahead of ourselves' has been the understandable, knee-jerk reaction. The obvious argument against 8K TVs is that there's nothing to take advantage of that resolution, barring content specifically shot to play on a loop and wow conference footfall. Samsung's Stuart Mayo, TV and audio marketing chief in the UK, tells me 8K movies and the like will be in your home much sooner than you might think -- somewhere between 18 months and two years from now, he estimates. This isn't a figure plucked out of thin air, though. Films are being captured in 8K, such as Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, so the cameras are already here. Last year, Vimeo added support for 8K streaming and Sharp began selling an 8K-ready receiver. Japanese broadcaster NHK is gearing up to deliver the Tokyo 2020 Olympics in 8K, and companies like NVIDIA are building powerful GPUs that allow editors to work easily with such high-resolution footage. Image: Marvel / Disney In the near future, 5G and ever-improving compression standards should also solve any problems with streaming 8K content to the average home. Just as with 4K, or HDR, taking 8K mainstream is a symbiotic effort across numerous hardware manufacturers, movie studios and broadcasters. As it stands, native 8K content is actually one the last pieces of the puzzle. Bothered or not, we're on the cusp. This isn't exactly an incentive to buy an 8K TV right now, though. Even in lieu of compatible content, Samsung says its 8K sets still offer the best viewing experience money can buy, because resolution isn't everything. Part of this claim has to do with its upscaling technology, which makes anything from SD to 4K footage look... better. Using machine-learning -- or AI or whatever you want to call it -- the 8K TVs have been trained to know the difference between a [...]

eBay has launched a new service that gives you a quick way to sell select phone models if you don't want to deal with Craigslist buyers. It's called Instant Selling, and the e-commerce platform says the whole process will only take you a few minutes from start to finish. The downside is you're not getting cold hard cash for your phone -- you're getting an eBay voucher that you can use to purchase items from the website. If that's not a dealbreaker (and you buy stuff from eBay regularly anyway), you might be able to get more for your device than what some trade-in programs offer. To start the process, visit the new feature's portal. eBay will obviously need to know what brand and model your phone is, as well as what its specs are. It'll ask you if your device is in good condition, if it's broken and if it comes with accessories or its original box. Obviously, devices that are still intact and function properly will be worth more. You'll get the voucher as soon as soon as you decide to agree with the price eBay quotes, and you'll also get a shipping label you can print to be able to send in your phone. Take note that you will need to upload pictures to prove that your device doesn't have a busted screen or any glaring issue if you say it doesn't. However, it's not entirely clear what would happen if eBay discovers a problem with it after you've already shipped it -- possibly because the program only accepts newer devices. While the service does sound convenient, it's only open to a select number of models, namely Samsung Galaxy S7 to S9 devices (and their plus versions) and Apple's new iPhones starting from the iPhone 6S 16GB to the iPhone X 256GB. They'll also need to be unlocked or under contract with AT&T or Verizon only. eBay will add T-Mobile and Sprint devices, as well as Google Pixel and select LG options in November.

The European Union's contentious copyright directive became a major talking point for YouTube creators last month, as people rushed to inform their audiences just how consequential the new directive could become. Now, YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki is adding her concerned voice to the chorus. Wojcicki spent the first portion of her letter to creators addressing Article 13, a new requirement that would give YouTube the sole burden of preventing copyrighted content from being uploaded and shared by its creators. Right now, YouTube allows remixed copyright material to exist on its platform under the Fair Use Act. But critics of Article 13 suggest that as YouTube becomes more liable for any copyrighted content, a harsher filter will apply to... Continue reading… [...]

China's central government has drafted a new regulation that would strip blockchains of their anonymity, requiring users to provide their real names and national ID card numbers when registering for a blockchain service. Trading Bitcoin is already banned in the country, but the policy will place significant restrictions on ongoing blockchain development. On Friday, the Cyberspace Administration of China, the country's internet regulator, released a draft of the policy, which would also require blockchain services to remove “illegal information” quickly before it spreads among users. The services will also be required to retain backups of user data for six months and provide them to law enforcement whenever necessary. Users who break the... Continue reading… [...]

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has shut down a self-driving school bus project in Florida, calling it “unlawful.” It's one of the most forceful interventions by the Department of Transportation in the early days of autonomous vehicles. The news was first reported by Jalopnik. The North American arm of international transportation company Transdev was using one of its pod-like electric autonomous shuttles — called the EasyMile Easy10 Gen II — to carry up to 12 school children at a time. The test was taking place in Babcock Ranch, a tech-forward community in Florida that claims to be the country's first solar-powered town. A spokesperson for Transdev could not be reached for comment.

Big media companies are getting a lot bigger. AT&T and Time Warner are in the process of merging, despite the Department of Justice's best efforts, and Disney finally beat out Comcast for control of 21st Century Fox. Of course, Comcast already owns NBC Universal and Illumination studios (proud home of the Minions franchise), so it's not doing too bad on its own. Nearly every company is getting bigger and more vertically integrated. At the same time, nearly every company that makes video is finding its way into the streaming media business. Disney is planning its own Netflix competitor for 2019, backed by content holdings like Marvel, Lucasfilm, and Pixar.

Samsung is refreshing its Windows Mixed Reality headset today with the new HMD Odyssey+. Samsung's original headset was one of the best for Windows Mixed Reality, and this refreshed model makes some minor tweaks to improve things. The headset has the same size dual 3.5-inch AMOLED displays at 1440 x 1600 resolution per eye (with 110-degree field of view), but this time around there's a wider eye box to prevent fogging and some new display technology. Samsung is using Anti-Screen Door Effect (Anti-SDE) tech to improve the pixelation that sometimes occurs with VR headsets.
