Apple is reportedly working with Volkswagen on building self-driving vans

“Hey Siri, call me a ride.”

Apple has signed a deal with German automaker Volkswagen to develop self-driving cars for its employees, The New York Times reported May 23. The contract doesn’t involve VW Beetles or wagons, sadly, but rather the company’s new, boxy T6 Transporter vans.

Reports that Apple has been working on autonomous technology have swirled for years, with some of the earliest rumors even suggesting it was working on a minivan. What’s been codenamed “Project Titan” within Apple is a long-term project to develop car technology that has flitted between producing software and full-on vehicles over the years. As part of the project, Apple has employed renowned car designers and electric-vehicle charging engineers, poached away from companies including Tesla, Aston Martin, and Alphabet, and yet reports have suggested that it’s scaled back its research as the company couldn’t settle on a path forward. At one point the project had upwards of 1,000 people working on it.

In mid-2017, CEO Tim Cook spoke publicly about Apple’s self-driving ambitions for the first time, saying it was working on “autonomous systems.” It also was awarded a testing license in California around the same time, and now has more of its own modified autonomous vehicles on the road in the state than competitors Waymo and Uber (although those companies both operate in other states as well).

It’s still unclear whether Apple’s end ambitions are to build and sell its own autonomous vehicles, or just the software inside. But the Times’ report suggests Apple has more than just a passing interest. The Times also reported that Apple tried to form partnerships with luxury brands Mercedes and BMW, but was ultimately unsuccessful as it wanted full control over the data and design of the project. It’s now focusing on turning vans into autonomous shuttles for employees, allowing it to make its real-world deployment of autonomous technologies in a controlled environment, as companies such as Ford have done. Others, like Waymo and Uber, are testing on public roads. In March, an autonomous Uber struck and killed a pedestrian passing in front of it when the car’s safety driver couldn’t react quickly enough.

Apple and Volkswagen weren’t immediately available to comment.

New Acer Laptops Come With Amazon Alexa Preloaded, But Others Will Get It Too

Acer has officially announced several Windows 10 laptop lines with Amazon's Alexa built in, marking an industry first. The company plans a wider Alexa rollout in the future.

HP has already been offering an Alexa-equipped all-in-one PC, but Acer is now bringing the feature to the laptop segment. Several notebook lines running Windows 10, including the Acer Spin 3 and Spin 5 (both 13- and 15-inch versions) which are now available for purchase at various retailers, are coming with Alexa preloaded.

Acer Laptops With Amazon Alexa

As expected, Amazon Alexa grants users access to a number of tasks easily fulfilled through its artificial intelligence props. Users can control their smart home devices, get the weather forecast, check the news or sport scores, play music, create shopping or to-do lists, add things to their calendar, and perform other such tasks simply by uttering voice commands.

It's worth pointing out, however, that laptops might not be as receptive as smart speakers when it comes to voice recognition from across the room, so users might want to sit closer to the device when issuing a voice command.

The Acer Nitro 5 Spin laptop line for gamers will get Amazon Alexa as well, with the rollout set to commence in June. The voice-powered assistant will also hit select Acer Aspire, Swift, and Switch notebook models, along with Acer Aspire AIOs, within the next few weeks as they hit retail.

Amazon Alexa Rolling Out To Existing Acer Devices

While new Acer laptops will come with Alexa preloaded, Acer has not forgotten about existing models. Customers who already purchased other devices from Acer's portfolio can rest assured that Alexa will become available later on, thanks to an update via the Acer Care Center.

The Acer Spin 5 will be the first line to get the update on May 23, followed by the Acer Spin 3 on May 26.

"The Acer Spin 3 and Spin 5 convertible notebooks are the ideal products for the industry debut of Alexa voice functionality on notebooks," boasts Jerry Kao, Acer's IT Products Business president. "We are thrilled to be the first to market with these flexible systems, which feature industry-leading audio and the latest technologies for convenient, time-saving and intuitive interactions."

Steve Rabuchin, Amazon Alexa vice president, adds that the company is thrilled to have new means of making Alexa available to customers. This enables consumers to enjoy the perks of voice control and Alexa on more devices, including laptops, which should only increase the convenience.

Google and Microsoft disclose new CPU flaw, and the fix can slow machines down

Microsoft and Google are jointly disclosing a new CPU security vulnerability that’s similar to the Meltdown and Spectre flaws that were revealed earlier this year.

Labelled Speculative Store Bypass (variant 4), the latest vulnerability is a similar exploit to Spectre and exploits speculative execution that modern CPUs use. Browsers like Safari, Edge, and Chrome were all patched for Meltdown earlier this year, and Intel says “these mitigations are also applicable to variant 4 and available for consumers to use today.”

However, unlike Meltdown (and more similar to Spectre) this new vulnerability will also include firmware updates for CPUs that could affect performance. Intel has already delivered microcode updates for Speculative Store Bypass in beta form to OEMs, and the company expects them to be more broadly available in the coming weeks. The firmware updates will set the Speculative Store Bypass protection to off-by-default, ensuring that most people won’t see negative performance impacts.

“If enabled, we’ve observed a performance impact of approximately 2-8 percent based on overall scores for benchmarks like SYSmark 2014 SE and SPEC integer rate on client 1 and server 2 test systems,” explains Leslie Culbertson, Intel’s security chief.

As a result, end users (and particularly system administrators) will have to pick between security or optimal performance. The choice, like previous variants of Spectre, will come down to individual systems and servers, and the fact that this new variant appears to be less of a risk than the CPU flaws that were discovered earlier this year.

Microsoft started offering up to $250,000 for bugs that are similar to the Meltdown and Spectre CPU flaws in March, and the company says it discovered this new bug back in November. “Microsoft previously discovered this variant and disclosed it to industry partners in November of 2017 as part of Coordinated Vulnerability Disclosure (CVD),” says a Microsoft spokesperson. Microsoft is now working with Intel and AMD to determine performance impacts on systems.

“We are continuing to work with affected chip manufacturers and have already released defense-in-depth mitigations to address speculative execution vulnerabilities across our products and services,” says a Microsoft spokesperson. “We’re not aware of any instance of this vulnerability class affecting Windows or our cloud service infrastructure. We are committed to providing further mitigations to our customers as soon as they are available, and our standard policy for issues of low risk is to provide remediation via our Update Tuesday schedule.” ...

Deadpool 2 Review Roundup: Marvel’s Foul-Mouthed Hero Returns For A Worthy, Still R-Rated Follow-Up

WARNING: The following article may contain spoilers for Deadpool 2.

Reviews for Deadpool 2 are now coming in, and it looks like the sequel to 2016's record-breaking R-Rated Marvel superhero adaptation is reaping mostly positive reviews, much like its predecessor.

Expectations for the sequel were high considering the first Deadpool film was a box office knockout, earning $783 million globally and winning the hearts of critics and audiences alike thanks to its clever spins on the typical superhero movie formula. Now, several critics say Deadpool 2 surpasses the first outing in terms of upending the tropes associated with the genre and mixing sharp comedy with fast-paced action. Some are more critical of the film, however, pointing out what they believe to be ethnic stereotypes among supporting characters.

No matter how divided the critics may be on Deadpool 2, it's hard to argue against the fact that the film is a highly refreshing take on the persistent superhero movie formula. It doesn't attempt to revamp the tired old techniques that make superhero films bombastic, dynamic, and spectacle-filled experiences but uses those and pokes fun at them afterward, aware that these old tropes are trite and overused — but that they work.
