Beep Florida testet Navya Shuttles

„Supervised self-driving shuttles are moving COVID-19 tests in Florida – Each shuttle is shadowed by a human driving a regular car – In a statement provided to The Verge, Joe Moye, the CEO of autonomous vehicle operator Beep, said the Jacksonville Transportation Authority is providing the chase vehicles to ‚ensure no traffic or pedestrians would potentially impact the delivery path of the COVID-19 samples and supplies.‘ That’s despite the fact that the Mayo Clinic’s press release says the routes the shuttles are running ‚are isolated from pedestrians, traffic and staff.‘- A representative for Beep, which worked with the Mayo Clinic, JTA, and self-driving shuttle builder Navya on the pilot, says that putting the tests in the attendant-less shuttle instead of in an SUV or truck being driven by a human helps limit any potential exposure to the novel coronavirus.“

Quibi: Review der Kurzvideo-App

Quibi app review: shifting landscape – A mobile-only video app was always going to be a hard sell – After months of publicity, Quibi – the mobile phone app that’s centered on short, bite-sized original programming – is launching today on iPhone and Android. The platform is the brainchild of entertainment industry giant Jeffrey Katzenberg and seasoned tech executive Meg Whitman, and it has been built from the ground up for smartphones. … The technical details of how Quibi actually works are interesting. Anytime you’re watching a show, the app serves you two video streams simultaneously and ’stitches them together‘ with a single audio track. Whichever one you’re not watching is delivered at a lower resolution. But once you rotate your phone, the Turnstyle switch from portrait to landscape and vice versa is instantaneous. There’s no pause, buffering, or any noticeable video quality degradation. … At launch, the Quibi app is by no means bad, and Turnstyle is fun to experiment with. It just feels very much like a version 1.0.“

GoDaddy kauft Registrar Neustar

GoDaddy goes vertical with Neustar registry acquisition – GoDaddy buys its first registry, implements governance model for conflicts of interest, and promises to keep domain prices in check. … Now, for some domains, GoDaddy will act as both the wholesaler and retailer when a consumer registers a domain at GoDaddy. When a consumer registers one of these domains at a competing registrar, such as Network Solutions, the competitor will pay GoDaddy the wholesale fee. – This may cause concern of conflicts of interest, which GoDaddy plans to address with a governance model. … GoDaddy’s Registry and Registrar will not share any information with each other that gives (or appears to give) unfair competitive advantage. – GoDaddy Registry cannot show preference to GoDaddy Registrar. – GoDaddy will set up functions inside legal and audit areas to ensure compliance. – The company will look at business performance of the Registry and Registrar separately.“


Google Local Home SDK verfügbar

Google launches Local Home SDK out of preview – Google today announced the launch of the Local Home software development kit (SDK), a technology suite intended to enhance smart home integration with Google Assistant by routing commands to devices through local networks. It’s a paradigm Google refers to as ‚local fulfillment,‘ and it ostensibly reduces the latency and improves the reliability of devices that take advantage, resulting in a superior user experience. … The latest version of the Local Home SDK allows developers to enter multiple scan configurations in the Actions console for a given project, enabling local fulfillment apps to handle multiple device families that might be using different discovery protocols. It supports discovery of local devices over Wi-Fi using the mDNS, UDP, or UPnP protocols. Once a local path is established, apps can send commands to devices using TCP, UDP, or HTTP.“
