President Trump has signed a new executive order which will block all transactions with Bytedance, TikTok’s parent corporation, in an effort to “address the national emergency with respect to the information and communication technology supply chain.” It isn’t effectively immediately, but has a 45 day deadline.
“The spread [of apps controlled by the Chinese government] continues to threaten the national security, foreign policy, and economy of the United States,” the order reads. “The United States must take aggressive action against the owners of TikTok to protect our national security.”
A parallel order banned transactions with WeChat, a popular texting app in China that maintains a small user base in the US.

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) voted unanimously (5-0) in favor of Amazon‘s bid, pitting the ecommerce giant squarely against Elon Musk’s SpaceX in the internet-from-space race. “In addition to providing ground station service directly to customers, Project Kuiper will also provide backhaul solutions for wireless carriers extending LTE and 5G service to new regions,” said Amazon in a press release.

Specs for Samsung’s unannounced Tab S7 and Tab S7 Plus have leaked online, giving us an almost complete impression of what to expect from the company’s upcoming tablets.
WinFuture reports that the big difference between the Tab S7 and the Tab S7 Plus are the screens. The S7 Plus will reportedly have a 12.4-inch OLED display with a resolution of 2800 x 1752 and an in-display fingerprint sensor. The S7, meanwhile, is said to have a smaller 11-inch 2560 x 1600 LCD display and will have a side-mounted fingerprint sensor. Both screens will reportedly have a high refresh rate of 120Hz.
Elsewhere, the specs of the two tablets are very similar. WinFuture says they’ll both be powered by Qualcomm’s flagship Snapdragon 865 Plus processor, and will...

GM said that it would produce an all-electric Chevy pickup truck, with 400-plus miles of range.
A Chevy EV pickup would join a GMC Hummer pickup, as well as a lineup of new EVs from Cadillac and Buick.
Earlier this year, GM showcased its product plans, its electric future, and its Ultium battery technology.

Who killed the electric car? Infamously, General Motors — the automaker's discontinued EV1, a pioneering vehicle from the 1990s, was the fallen hero of a 2006 documentary.
But GM has more than made up for the presumed offense; in addition the Chevy Bolt EV, in market since late 2016, the company has declared that its future is electric and that 22 new electrified vehicles should be rolling out by 2023.
We already knew about a larger Bolt SUV, a GMC Hummer electric pickup, and the forthcoming Cadillac Lyriq EV. Now with the release of GM's 2019 Sustainability Report, we learn that a full-size, electric Chevy pickup is on the way, offering "offering 400+ miles of range on a single charge," GM indicated.
The electric pickup now looks to be the marquée products hitting roads and trails in the coming months. Tesla revealed its Cybertruck at the end of last year, startup Rivian has a pickup headed for manufacturing, and Ford is in the process of developing a hybrid F-150 as a precursor to an all-electric F-Series (we've already seen a prototype tow a million-pound load of freight train cars).
A full-size Chevy EV pickup should logically be badged as a Silverado, as Autoweek suggests, but who knows? Hummer came back as a GMC. So Chevy could play around with the nameplate.
Earlier this year, GM provided substantial insight into its Ultium battery technology and its overall electrification strategy going forward. That means a fleet of EV Caddys, Buicks, a Hummer SUV, and now a Chevy pickup. In the grand scheme of things, its an ambitious lineup that would give GM one of the largest EV portfolios in the industry.FOLLOW US: On Facebook for more car and transportation content!

Instagram's ongoing experiment to see whether hiding 'like' counts on posts will improve the user experience is now expanding to the US – a "small portion" of people should find these metrics hidden from view.As TechCrunch reports, the expansion was announced at the Wired25 conference.The tweak has already been tested in Canada, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Brazil, Australia and New Zealand.While posts can still rack up 'likes' as normal, only the creator of the post is able to view them – no one else can see whether a particular post has received a lot of love or hardly any at all.The idea is to make the social network a less pressurized and competitive environment, Instagram says, although in regions where the experiment has already started, 'like' counts have dropped by several percentage points.To like or not to like

PALM SPRINGS, Calif.—ABC Entertainment president Karey Burke’s kids love Grown-ish, the spinoff series of her network’s critically acclaimed sitcom Black-ish.But they don’t watch the show on ABC’s sister network, Freeform.“I don’t care where you watch it—we’re still capturing you as a viewer—but it was really instructive to me how they were watching the shows,” Burke said onstage at Adweek’s annual Brandweek summit in Palm Springs, Calif.Grown-ish’s popularity, especially in delayed viewing, illustrates how Freeform, where Burke used to work, changed its approach to measuring a show’s popularity.“It launched big on traditional ratings on Freeform at the time, but we saw it popping hugely, particularly on Hulu.”Burke, who oversaw original programming on Freeform before she took over ABC Entertainment a year ago, is ready to employ that same strategy when it comes to ABC’s ratings as well.
Whenever you visit a webpage, your web browser first needs to discover the specific location (or IP address) of the computer server hosting it.Your web browser does this by sending a DNS query for the website you want to visit to a huge global database, and then waits for the IP address to come back as the answer.They would be able to identify the websites you have visited.This can be particularly helpful when connecting to an unfamiliar or public wifi network that others may be able to monitor.Yet people have raised concerns, particularly after Firefox announced that they would turn it on by default in the US.This is because web browsers still need to send their encrypted queries to somebody to decrypt and then answer.
