Global Technology News for 24 Feb 2018

Cardano: a risingOn Oct. 1, 2017, an unusual event caused a collective gasp in the world of cryptocurrencies. A little known cryptocurrency called Cardano — or ADA, as its corresponding coin is called — showed up... on crypto-tracking sites with a market cap of about $600 million. At the time, it was unusual to see a new coin appear out of thin air with such a high market cap. But Cardano is different. It's an incredibly ambitious product with a strong team and tons of buzz. By year's end, the market cap of Cardano was more than $10 billion, despite the fact that the project was in a fairly early stage. In January, it briefly soared to more than $33 billion before receding back to roughly $10 billion as the overall cryptocurrency market shrunk. It is currently the sixth largest cryptocurrency by market...

Tesla offers to installBefore Tesla stands any chance of breaking into the mainstream and competing with the industry leaders, charging stations for its vehicles need to be significantly easier to find than they are now. To... that end, Tesla announced a new "workplace charging" program this week which will see charging stations installed in office parking lots all around the country for free. All the business has to do is meet a set of qualifications and apply for the stations online. Businesses that qualify for the program will receive Tesla Wall Connectors at their workplace, with Tesla covering the cost of the installation. But once the chargers are installed, the business will be responsible for energy costs as well as any potential zoning, construction or labor costs that might be incurred during the...

Even Elon Musk doesn't buyAlthough Bitcoin has captured the hearts and minds of amateur gamblers and Ponzi schemers, it's still an orphan child among most financial managers. Warren Buffett thinks the crypto-currency "will... come to a bad ending," while his long-time adviser Charlie Munger described it as "noxious poison." Now, Elon Musk doesn't fit any stereotype about multibillionaire CEOs -- unless you've been watching too many Iron Man reruns -- but he also doesn't appear to be on the hype train. He does own a tiny amount of Bitcoin, but as he recently revealed, it's not even enough to buy new tires for his Tesla. In a tweet (very) early this morning, Musk said that his friend sent him 0.25BTC a few years ago, but that's all the crypto he has: In another tweet last year, Musk said the same thing, but said he...

FCC chairman who killed netFederal Communications Commission chairman Ajit Pai was set to give a speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Maryland Friday afternoon, but instead the organization surprised... him with a "Courage Under Fire" award for standing up to net neutrality supporters.  Pai introduced a repeal to the net neutrality regulations brought in during the Obama administration. The FCC voted 3-2 to repeal the rules last year and on April 23 it will be officially dead, barring any successful legal challenges.

Tesla's Autopilot featureWhen Tesla released its Autopilot feature a few years ago, it didn't take long before enthusiastic Tesla owners began pushing the feature to the limit. In fact, some of the early Autopilot videos we... saw were so harrowing that Tesla was effectively forced to enact a number of safeguards around the feature. As a quick example, one video which made the rounds a few years ago featured a Tesla driver sitting in the backseat while Autopilot busied itself with the navigation. In the years since, Tesla's Autopilot feature has seen a few transformations. In addition to implementing a number of safeguards, Tesla in 2016 cut ties with Mobileye, an Israeli company that provided Tesla with the advanced sensors that helped form the foundation for Autopilot. With Mobileye out of the picture, Tesla began...

Film audiences who aren't already claustrophobic might feel that way after watching The Chamber, a new thriller set almost entirely off the coast of North Korea in the cabin of an overturned submarine... stuck at the bottom of the Yellow Sea. The plot -- a looming conflict between the US and North Korea -- is either poorly timed or extremely well-timed, given recent global events, but the real story is the classic moral quandary of how humans behave when trying to survive. Mats, a Swedish submarine ship captain for hire (played by Force Majeure star Johannes Bah Kuhnke), gets entangled in espionage when his boss orders him to pilot an American special ops team to an undisclosed location in a rickety Cold War-era submarine called the Aurora....

Jobs not only founded Apple alongside Steve Wozniak in 1976 and directed the future of technology with the development of some of the first personal computers, but he also brought Apple back from the brink of failure even after being ousted from the company he created. Though he passed away in October of 2011 when he was just 56, Steve Jobs had a lasting impact on Apple's culture.

After all, chickens were once carnivorous dinosaurs that stalked the... Earth on giant drumsticks. For all the movies that show dinosaurs chasing after humans, we don't actually know much about what a walking or running dinosaur looked like. Footprints and fossils, for example, can't tell us whether a dino strode or strutted. "They're static records of an animal or its movement," says Peter Bishop, a scientist at the Queensland Museum. For movement, he says, "That's when you've got to study animals that are living today." Only, there aren't any dinosaurs wandering around anymore. So Bishop and his colleagues turned...

Thanks to its larger internal volume it can shoot 4K for longer (15 mins compared to 10), and while the two cameras both impose a modest 1.17X crop, the X-H1 boasts a maximum bitrate of 200Mbps and the option to shoot F-Log...

Assassin's Creed: Origins'sDo you know what a "Hippodamian Grid Plan" is? I didn't until I played Assassin's Creed: Origins's new Discovery Tour mode. Turns out Hippodamus of Miletus is known as "the father of European urban... planning," a Greek born in 498 B.C.E. who argued that cities should be built rationally (a.k.a. on grids) instead of devolving into haphazard labyrinths. Most important: His ideas were adopted by Deinokrates, principle planner for the city of Alexandria. And the rest, as they say, is history. Walk like an Egyptian I've been waiting for Assassin's Creed: Origins's "Discovery Tour" mode ever since Ubisoft showed it off to us last year. The gist: Ubisoft took the world from Origins, the sprawling recreation of Ptolemaic Egypt that played host to Bayek's adventures last year, and stripped most of...

Alto's Odyssey, the long-awaited sequel to Alto's Adventure, hit the App Store this week, three years after the original... became one of our favorite games of 2015. SEE ALSO: Snap has a new message for all the Snapchat redesign haters With a three-year wait, expectations for Alto's Odyssey were extremely high, but we can now say the $4.99 iOS game was worth the wait.

Sequoia bought into the company when it was cheap. Here's what that means today. Dropbox's CEO and its first big institutional investor have amassed an unusually large percentage of the company.... Dropbox, which unveiled its IPO documents on Friday, raised money relatively slowly on its way to its last valuation of $10 billion. What that means is that Drew Houston, one of the company's founders, and Sequoia Capital, which cut Houston his first venture capital check, now stand to make a disproportionately largely amount of money off their file-sharing and cloud-storage project. Houston owns 25 percent of the outstanding shares of the company, and his co-founder, Arash Ferdowsi, owns about another 10 percent. And unlike at companies that raise more than a half-dozen rounds of outside financing...

A psychological test once used by NASA on astronauts calculates Tim Cook as “Advisor.” It’s called the Process Communication Model, and it categorizes people under six categories: Advisors,... Connectors, Doers, Dreamers, Originals, and Organizers. According to one website, Advisors make up 10% of the population, and curiously this trait skews 75% male. Tim Cook is well known for his careful, articulate way of speaking in interviews and keynotes, and when you look at Advisor traits, it makes sense. Or, it could be a cognitive bias. You see, I personally find this whole thing a bit concerning. Online personality tests are fun to take, but they definitely aren’t valid medical advice. That requires seeing a therapist.

Though the company's early success rested entirely on mailing out DVDs to customers across the globe, Netflix CEO... Reed Hastings had the foresight to recognize that media consumption was poised to change drastically with the proliferation of affordable and high-speed Internet. In turn, Netflix astutely shifted gears and made online streaming the core focus of its business. And following that, Netflix realized that the key to media dominance was a vast library of original content. Before long, Netflix began rolling out a seemingly endless stream of compelling TV programming. And though Netflix's first breakthrough original was a political drama (House of Cards), the company's stable of original content...

T-Mobile's $200 iPhoneTwo days ago, T-Mobile announced one of the better iPhone X deals we've seen so far.

Plus -- and unlike the rest of the iPhone deals available right now, you don't have to buy two phones. The only catch is that you have to trade in an eligible smartphone, which means a relatively recent Samsung Galaxy device or iPhone. Doing so gets you a $200 Mastercard rebate on the new iPhone, and you also get the value of your trade-in applied to the balance of the new device. In order to get the $200 Mastercard, you have to trade in one of the following: Samsung GS8 / Samsung GS8+ / Samsung GS8 Active / Samsung GS7 / Samsung GS7 Edge / Samsung GS7 Active Apple iPhone 7 / Apple iPhone 7...
