  • Grimes is changing her name to the symbol for the speed of light, encouraged by Elon Musk
    Samstag 23:01 Laura Hudson at The Verge – All Posts
    It’s easy to pick up habits from romantic partners. People who are attracted to each other often engage in mirroring, or subconsciously copying each other’s gestures and patterns of speech. It’s also common for people in relationships to adopt each other’s attitudes, behaviors, and hobbies. Personally, it’s how I learned to sail, rock climb and develop an appreciation for the finer points of noise music and puppetry. Since the musician Grimes started dating tech mogul Elon Musk, many critics have noted — or complained — that she seems to be mirroring the billionaire CEO behind SpaceX and Tesla …

    Samstag 19:00 Jacob Kastrenakes at The Verge – All Posts
    This week was the magical week when advertising executives descend on New York City to hear TV executives tell them about the new series they’re working on. The events are kind of strange because as much as they’re about business dealings, they’re also about putting on a show and impressing people, so TV networks do their best to make them as exciting as possible. There are food and drinks, and often, they’ll bring out a few stars to entertain the audience. More importantly for you, it’s also the week when TV networks reveal first looks at a lot of the shows they’re planning for later in the y …

  • Google’s Selfish Ledger ideas can also be found in its patent applications
    Samstag 18:24 Vlad Savov at The Verge – All Posts
    I trust by now we’ve all seen and been at least a little disturbed by The Selfish Ledger, the nearly 9-minute-long concept video from inside Google’s “moonshot factory” X labs. In the wake of it becoming public this week, Google quickly disavowed the video, claiming it was just a thought experiment “not related to any current or future products.” And yet, the company’s patent applications exhibit a mode of thinking that runs at least in parallel, if not on the exact same tracks, as The Selfish Ledger’s total data collection proposal. A reader pointed me in the direction of a Google patent appl …

  • China’s first private rocket launch kicks off the country’s commercial space race
    Samstag 16:00 Sean O'Kane at The Verge – All Posts
    China celebrated the country’s first rocket launch by a private spaceflight company this week. OneSpace Technologies, based out of Beijing, launched its OS-X rocket from an undisclosed location on a suborbital trajectory on Wednesday, reaching a reported altitude of 25 miles and traveling about 170 miles before falling back to Earth. It’s the first demonstration of what the company says will become a scalable business built around sending small satellites into space.

  • HBO’s Fahrenheit 451 turns a warning about media into a tirade against tech trends
    Samstag 15:00 Adi Robertson at The Verge – All Posts
    Dystopian stories are often described as warnings, but they can also be Rorschach blots. Readers dive in with specific fears — about technology, society, or the future — and find an allegory to validate them. And Fahrenheit 451, Ray Bradbury’s classic 1953 novel, is a perfectly adaptable cautionary tale. It’s an elegant high-concept story backed by a complicated web of broad social complaints, critiquing everything from social justice to the zipper. This might be why it’s produced two dramatically different films: one from French auteur François Truffaut in 1966, and the other from 99 Homes di …

  • China bans a popular rage comics website for making fun of a communist hero
    Samstag 1:41 Shannon Liao at The Verge – All Posts
    China has banned the most popular rage comics website in the country for poking fun at a communist hero. Under the “Heroes and Martyrs Protection Act,” passed by the National People’s Congress and enacted on May 1st, it’s now illegal to make jokes at the expense of communist heroes or martyrs — those distinctions belonging, of course, to the state. The comics site Baozou, which had more than 10 million followers on the Chinese social media site Weibo and over 245,000 subscribers on Youtube, was so popular that its rage comic 7723 was turned into a Netflix film called Next Gen, which is current …

It’s just a quick one, not „science-quality,“ but it does give you an idea of the scale of the mission: the area TESS will eventually document is 400 times the area covered by this shot.
  • Tidal is investigating data breach that led to accusation of inflated streaming numbers
