T-Mobile's standalone 5G network is launching throughout the US. It's the first major phone carrier to launch such a standalone architecture.  The expanded coverage means more people will have faster speed and connectivity on their smartphones and other devices in a larger number of places. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. T-Mobile is launching its own standalone 5G network, an industry first as the next-generation wireless technology continues to make its grand entrance. The company announced the network in a blog post on Tuesday. T-Mobile already had a sizable reach with its 5G network, but this new standalone network will expand it even further. The carrier's 5G network now covers 250 million people, up 30% from before. In addition to its new standalone network, T-Mobile also maintains its non-standalone architecture, in which a 4G LTE core is combined with 5G capabilities. The company had previously activated a nationwide 5G network in late 2019 that was said to be more expansive than T-Mobile's competitors. However, due to the longer range, the speeds were slower than the gigabit speeds that 5G networks are known for, as Business Insider's Antonio Villas-Boas reported.  5G is the next-generation of 4G LTE, which is what has been running our mobile devices and allowing us to stream videos, make phone calls, and use apps. 5G has been anticipated to be a mighty upgrade from its predecessor, increasing the speed in which consumers can use their phones and improving connectivity in more places.SEE ALSO: What is 5G, how fast is it, and when is it coming?

Mick Fleetwood and Stevie Nicks have led the tributes to Fleetwood Mac co-founder Peter Green following his death at the age of 73.Fleetwood and Green formed the influential group in London in 1967, alongside John McVie and Jeremy Spencer.Nicks signed with the band in 1975, five years after Green had quit amid struggles with his mental health.After his death was announced on Saturday, tributes poured in from across the music industry, with the musician lauded as among the greats of the British blues scene.In his emotional tribute, Fleetwood described Green as “my dearest friend” and said they “trail blazed one hell of a musical road for so many to enjoy”.He said: “For me, and every past and present member of Fleetwood Mac, losing Peter Green is monumental.“Peter was the man who started the band Fleetwood Mac along with myself, John McVie, and Jeremy Spencer. No one has ever stepped into the ranks of Fleetwood Mac without a reverence for Peter Green and his talent, and to the fact that music should shine bright and always be delivered with uncompromising passion.”The 73-year-old added: “Peter, I will miss you, but rest easy your music lives on. I thank you for asking me to be your drummer all those years ago. We did good, and trail blazed one hell of a musical road for so many to enjoy.“God speed to you, my dearest friend……. Love Mick Fleetwood.”Nicks joined Fleetwood Mac alongside her then-boyfriend Lindsey Buckingham and helped make the band one of the world’s most successful.The singer said her biggest regret was not sharing a stage with Green.In a statement shared on social media, Nicks wrote: “I am sorry to hear about the passing of Peter Green. My biggest regret is that I never got to share the stage with him. I always hoped in my heart of hearts that that would happen.“When I first listened to all the Fleetwood Mac records, I was very taken with his guitar playing. It was one of the reasons I was excited to join the band.“His legacy will live on forever in the history books of Rock n Roll. It was in the beginning, Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac and I thank you, Peter Green, for that. You changed our lives.” View this post on InstagramA post shared by Stevie Nicks (@stevienicks) on Jul 25, 2020 at 5:36pm PDTGreen, the influential blues rock guitarist, whose songs included Albatross and Oh Well, was born in London’s Bethnal Green into a Jewish family.He formed Fleetwood Mac with drummer Fleetwood in London in 1967, after a stint in John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers – filling in for Eric Clapton.Green and Fleetwood wanted McVie to join the group on bass, and named the band Fleetwood Mac to entice him – a strategy that was ultimately successful.Under his direction, the band produced three albums and a series of well-loved tracks including Black Magic Woman, Man Of The World and Oh Well.Green penned the instrumental Albatross, which remains Fleetwood Mac’s only UK number one single, hitting the top of the charts in January 1969.Carlos Santana’s 1970 version of Black Magic Woman, in which he added conga and timbales drums, became one of the Mexican-American’s biggest hits.Green left Fleetwood Mac after a final performance in 1970 as he struggled with mental health difficulties and spiralling drug use, later sleeping rough.He was eventually diagnosed with schizophrenia and spent time in hospitals undergoing electro-convulsive therapy during the mid-70s.The band continued with a transformed line-up featuring a core group of Fleetwood, Nicks, Buckingham, McVie and Christine McVie.This phase gave rise to their hugely successful albums Fleetwood Mac and Rumours.Green emerged from obscurity on a number of occasions, forming the Peter Green Splinter Group in the late 1990s with Nigel Watson and Cozy Powell.They released nine albums between 1997 and 2004.Speaking to the PA news agency in 1992, Fleetwood described Green as “a major talent that to this day holds out”.He added: “I consider myself very lucky to have even played with him.“Of course it upsets me but there’s nothing I can do about it. It’s his life. I haven’t seen him for years.”Green was among the eight members — along with Fleetwood, Nicks, Buckingham, the McVies, Danny Kirwan and Jeremy Spencer — inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1998.Earlier this year, artists including Fleetwood, Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler, Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour, ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons and guitarists Jonny Lang and Andy Fairweather Low performed at the London Palladium during a gig celebrating the early years of Fleetwood Mac and Green.Green married Jane Samuels in January 1978. They divorced in 1979 and share a daughter.Additional reporting by PA Media.

OnePlus may be best known for its affordable phones, but alongside those devices, it’s also released some pretty decent earbuds too.

A new video game framework brings together two well-studied approaches to educational software in order to keep multiple players engrossed in the learning experience while fostering collaboration and problem solving.The framework is one of the first to integrate narrative-centered learning and collaborative learning techniques, laying the groundwork for future efforts in the field.In proof-of-concept testing, a team of researchers from North Carolina State University and Indiana University found a game made using the framework fostered both learning and effective collaboration in sixth graders."There's been a lot of work on computer-supported collaborative learning," says Jonathan Rowe, co-author of a paper on the work and a research scientist in NC State's Center for Educational Informatics (CEI)."We've developed a conceptual framework for combining these two educational approaches - interactive narratives and collaborative, problem-based learning - and then created a software architecture and suite of game-creation tools for implementing that framework," says Bradford Mott, first author of the paper and senior research scientist at CEI.The paper, "Designing and Developing Interactive Narratives for Collaborative Problem-Based Learning," will be presented at the Twelfth International Conference on Interactive Digital Storytelling, being held at the Snowbird resort in Utah from Nov. 19-22.

A court has ruled the suspicion-less search of travelers' electronic devices without a warrant unconstitutional, Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) announced Tuesday.Seizing phones, laptops and tablets at border points without reasonable suspicion violates the Fourth Amendment, according to the judgment filed Nov. 12.EFF called it "an enormous victory for privacy."US border agents currently have free rein to search through your digital devices, conducting more than 33,000 device searches in 2018 and 30,200 searches in 2017.EFF filed a suit back in September 2017 alongside the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) against the Department of Homeland Security agencies Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) on behalf of 11 people who allegedly had their phones and other devices searched without warrant at a US border."The court declares that the CBP and ICE policies for 'basic' and 'advanced' searches, as presently defined, violate the Fourth Amendment to the extent that the policies do not require reasonable suspicion that the devices contain contraband," the judgment, delivered in the United States District Court District of Massachusetts, said.

But researchers have recently unveiled a variety of harvestman totally new to science, and it cranks the creepy up to 11.The creature, discovered deep in a cave in Argentina, looks little like the familiar, gangly pals that sway across summer sidewalks.Like Tolkien’s famous recluse, the harvestman hails from a high-altitude grotto, but in the Andes, not the Misty Mountains.Cave biologist Marcela Peralta collected several of the arachnids while exploring Doña Otilia Cave between 2006 and 2012.The cave, which sits in a mountainous, volcanic region of Argentina’s Mendoza Province, is a lava tube, a tunnel left behind when the outer layers of a subterranean vein of lava harden and cool, like the skin that forms on a bowl of soup.Today, Doña Otilia is a half-mile long, pitch-black hallway that runs parallel to the dusty cinders above.

The Untitled Goose Game that became a viral phenomenon right after its launch a month ago has been vulnerable to hacking, according to a report from a security researcher.The wildly popular game allows players to stir shit up in a quaint British town.The whole point is to be an arsehole – from snatching up eyeglasses in your beak to honking at the perfect moment and making a groundskeeper hammer his own thumb.The appeal of the game hinges on the undeniable fact that geese are jerks and deep down, we all want to be jerks to strangers.Since Australian developer House House released the game on 20 September, it has inspired countless memes and allowed thousands of people to unleash their inner jackass goose.More than 100,000 copies of the game were reportedly sold within the first two weeks, and it topped Nintendo sales charts in the UK, US and Australia.

In a submission [PDF] to a formal inquiry looking at how to carry out age verification for online pornography and gambling, the Department of Home Affairs argued its nascent facial recognition system was the ideal solution.It goes to some trouble to outline its credentials in this area: Home Affairs “provides a suite of identity matching services to help organisations verify the identity of customers,” it notes.It also “provides relevant national guidelines and technical services that can assist with age verification.”But that’s just the hors d'oeuvre, the real meat is in the fact that the internal security department of the Australian government is “developing a Face Verification Service which matches a person’s photo against images used on one of their evidence of identity documents to help verify their identity.” And as a result “this could assist in age verification, for example by preventing a minor from using their parent’s driver licence to circumvent age verification controls.”Or, in this context, to prevent people from accessing online pornography.Aside from the fact that it seems unlikely that Australians would want to directly connect their actual face to a specific pornography website and have that information stored in a government database, the proposal makes for some interesting logistics.
