An entirely electric black cab in an approximation of the traditional London vernacular has gone on sale, with any new entrants to the world of licensed urban taxi driving able to pick one of for just £47,995 when factoring in the full government EV grant break.It's not an entirely traditional looking ride, though, as the vehicle's creator, Dynamo Electric Taxi, is heavily modifying a pre-existing, Nissan-produced e-NV200 electric van to create the battery-only machine; but that does at least mean proven tech is being used here, with the Dynamo delivering a maximum stated/ideal/fantasy range of 187 miles per charge, and compatibility with your usual 22 kW and 50 kW commercial fast/faster chargers, ultimately delivering a stated running cost-per-mile of just 3p.More importantly is the fact that the machine has been approved by Transport for London for use as an official black cab, even though it's slightly the wrong shape for the tourists.This leaves the current builder of the hybrid black cabs that are already out there looking a bit silly, as the London Electric Vehicle Company only offers vehicles with range-extender engines.

Wing’s drone delivery service is now live in Virginia.The Alphabet subsidiary is now delivering snacks and health care products to residents of Christiansburg, Virginia, after receiving approval from the government and teaming up with major players like FedEx and Walgreens.Wing says it’s the first commercial drone delivery service in the US.Earlier this year, Wing became one of the first drone operators to be certified as a commercial air carrier by the Federal Aviation Administration, allowing it to deliver goods to people who may live miles away and not in the drone operator’s line of sight.A video posted by Wing shows an elderly couple and a family with young children using their smartphones to select items for delivery.The video then cuts to a worker placing the items in a cardboard box that looks like an oversized Happy Meal.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg will deliver an “unfiltered take” on freedom of speech tomorrow via live Facebook video.“I’ve been writing a speech about my views on voice and free expression that I’m giving tomorrow,” Zuckerberg wrote.“It’s the most comprehensive take I’ve written about my views, why I believe voice is important, how giving people voice and bringing people together go hand in hand, how me might address the challenges that more voice and the internet introduce, and the major threats to free expression around the world.”The speech will be delivered tomorrow at 1PM ET, and Zuckerberg calls it “an unfiltered take on how I think about these questions,” based on years of thinking about speech issues.Also, it’s apparently very long.Zuckerberg has delivered plenty of lengthy philosophical musings about Facebook, but he’s generally published them as blog posts, not delivered them as live speeches.

Google announced a string of new products — including the Pixel 4 smartphones, the Pixelbook Go Chromebook, and the Pixel Buds 2 — at its annual hardware event on October 15.Amid the fanfare, however, I couldn’t help but notice the absence of what I believe is the best and possibly the most successful hardware product ever created by Google: The Chromecast.It’s been three years since Google released the Chromecast Ultra — the series’ last major upgrade.During that long spell, the media streaming market has grown across the globe and about a gazillion video platforms have emerged as the streaming wars ramp up.But Google’s hockey puck-shaped media device has remained timeless.Today, Chromecast is fundamentally still the same device Google launched more than half a decade ago.

In 2009, Ying-Hui Fu started getting a flood of emails from people who claimed to only need a few hours of sleep at night.It was the first such gene discovered.Now, it seemed, the entirety of the short-sleeping universe was deluging her inbox.Using that sample, Fu and Ptáček have now identified a new gene mutation associated with short sleepers, which they describe in a paper out today in Science Translational Medicine.The mutation is helping scientists understand how our bodies regulate sleep.“We don’t know how these different genes converge together to regulate sleep,” says Fu.

Today we’re looking at a wide variety of features released for the Google Pixel 4.One of the most interesting camera features revealed for the Google Pixel 4 will also be available for the Google Pixel 3 and Google Pixel 3a.That also includes the Google Pixel 3 XL – and it has a whole lot to do with the devices’ already-active Night Sight feature.With the latest update to Google’s Pixel 3 series, there’ll be a new ability in the deepest, darkest night.When the user points their device up toward the night sky – assuming it’s a clear sky above – they’ll see a new ability to capture the stars.Per Google’s latest release on the features included with the Google Pixel 4, “Night Sight already takes beautiful photos in full darkness, and now you can use Night Sight for shots of the night sky, the stars, and even the Milky Way (when you find a clear night),” said a Google representative.

Director Craig Brewer is riding high with the acclaimed "Dolemite Is My Name," a look at the making of the Blaxploitation hit "Dolemite," and is currently shooting the anticipated "Coming to America" sequel.But for years, Brewer struggled to stay in the business following the success of his hit indie "Hustle & Flow."Brewer talked to Business Insider about what helped him bounce back and why the story of Rudy Ray Moore getting "Dolemite" on the big screen is similar to his own story.Though many who have seen the Netflix comedy "Dolemite Is My Name" (in select theaters Friday and on the streaming service starting October 25) have pointed out that Eddie Murphy gives one of his strongest performances in years, he's not the only one making a comeback with this movie.Director Craig Brewer, who is known best for his 2005, Memphis-set gritty underdog indie "Hustle & Flow," has spent a lot of time since that movie trying to navigate what can be the cruel and confidence-shattering business."Hustle & Flow" put Brewer on the map thanks to the breakout, Oscar-nominated performance by Terrence Howard and the hit Three 6 Mafia song "It's Hard out Here for a Pimp" (Three 6 Mafia became the first rap group ever to win an Oscar).

Apple CEO Tim Cook says his company isn't interested in launching a cryptocurrency.In an interview with French publication Les Echos published on Friday, Cook said he believes deeply that money must remain in the hands of states."I am not comfortable with the idea that a private group creates a competing currency," Cook told Les Echos, according to a translation of the interview."Money, like defense, must remain in the hands of states ... We elect our representatives to assume government responsibilities.Companies are not elected, they do not have to go on this ground."Cook's comments come as Facebook's planned cryptocurrency, Libra, is reportedly on shaky ground, with financial partners reconsidering their involvement following scrutiny from US and international lawmakers.

There’s very little we don’t know about the Google Pixel 4 at this stage.We know for example that it’s coming in a new orange shade – one that Google itself has confirmed on a billboard.However that only provided a partial look at the phone.A leaked render shared by @evleaks (a reputable leaker) shows off the coral-like color, which is rumored to be called ‘Oh So Orange’.It’s not overly bright, which is probably for the best, but it’s definitely still more showy than the white and black Pixel 4 shades that have been heavily leaked.Other than the color, this is exactly the same design as we’ve seen extensively before, complete with a bezel above the screen and a square camera block.

But there's a simple facet of the app—which has been downloaded over 1.4 billion times globally—that has received far less attention: It exists outside of time.But TikTok, named after the sound a clock makes, has no time for time itself—a decision that ripples across the entire platform.The most obvious byproduct of that choice: TikTok videos that are weeks or even months old—an eternity on the internet—can suddenly go viral, with viewers blind to their age.“I wouldn’t say it interferes with my content making, but I wish it was easier to tell when videos were posted.”While creators say the absence of time stamps can be frustrating, the design choice almost certainly helps boost engagement for Bytedance, TikTok’s Chinese parent company and one of the highest-valued startups in the world.TikTok's feed is endless, and it's dangerously easy to lose hours watching videos on the app.

Presidential candidate Senator Elizabeth Warren has responded publicly to a leaked attack on her by Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, saying she won’t be bullied out of taking big tech to task for anticompetitive practices.Warren’s subtweeting of the Facebook founder follows a leak in which the Verge obtained two hours of audio from an internal Q session with Zuckerberg — publishing a series of snippets today.In one snippet the Facebook leader can be heard opining on how Warren’s plan to break up big tech would “suck”.“Does that still suck for us?I mean, I don’t want to have a major lawsuit against our own government.… But look, at the end of the day, if someone’s going to try to threaten something that existential, you go to the mat and you fight.”

In the kingdom of smartphones, the dumb phone is king apparently, given the rate at which the Kickstarter for the Mudita Pure minimalistic phone has been funded.With no internet connectivity whatsoever, functions are limited to calls, texts, notes, a calendar, calculator, alarm clock, torch, voice recorder, and a music player.The absence of WiFi and mobile data presumably means that your calendar app won't be able to sync with anything, plus you're going to be limited on the audio front if you're used to being spoiled for choice when it comes to music streaming.Does anyone actually download music for keeps anymore?The Kickstarter video shows a clueless man completely lacking in manners and social awareness barrel into a woman on the street without looking up from his smartphone, who he would've tried to fuck had he been looking up is my understanding, while he's on the way to a date with another woman, who he ignores completely in favour of staring at his phone like a mindless zombie.This seems like less of a smartphone issue and more of a 'you' issue.

Shoppers perusing a Mazda dealership will find largely the same compact car from last year when glancing at the 2020 Mazda3.The compact 3 still comes as either a svelte sedan or hatchback, but every trim has a load of standard active safety equipment now.The Japanese automaker said on Tuesday its i-Activsense suite of active safety gear is now standard on even the base model Mazda3.The added peace of mind pushes the starting price just $500 to a total of $22,420 (including a $920 destination charge), but there are a few other niceties included to back up the added cost.For instance, base model sedans now include automatic headlights and rain-sensing windshield wipers.Coupled with standard automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control and a driver attention alert to keep drowsy drivers focused, and more from the i-Activsense, there's a lot of value packed in.

But China-based phone maker Oppo — which has stayed pretty much at the forefront of this race — is raising the bar even further.Oppo announced its latest generation of SuperVOOC-branded charging tech on Tuesday, and the company claims it can charge a 4000mAh battery from 0% to 100% in 30 minutes.The method — which was first demoed in a tweet by Oppo’s Vice President — is capable of conducting a staggering 65 watts of power into compatible phones.In comparison, the new iPhone 11 Pro supports a maximum of 18W and can reach 50 percent charge in about half an hour.On the other hand, Samsung’s Galaxy Note 10+ needs a little over an hour to charge completely through the bundled 25W adapter.The latter is officially compatible with 45W but it hasn’t been put through a real-world test yet.

Microsoft today issued a support reprieve to Exchange Server 2010, saying it would continue to service the on-premises enterprise software for an extra nine months."After investigating and analyzing the deployment state of an extensive number of Exchange customers, we have decided to move the end of Extended Support for Exchange Server 2010 from January 14, 2020, to October 13, 2020," wrote Greg Taylor, director of product marketing for the Exchange team, in a Monday post to the group's blog.Extended Support is the label Microsoft uses for the second half of its traditional decade of support for commercial products.Although the company declines to address non-security flaws (at least, without a paid support plan in place) or add new features during Extended Support, it does still service the software with security updates."Your installation of Exchange 2010 will, of course, continue to run after [Oct. 13, 2020]; however, due to the changes and potential end-of-support risks, we strongly recommend you migrate from Exchange 2010 as soon as possible," Taylor said.Taylor implied that Microsoft had extended support because customers were having trouble meeting the original January deadline.

Google has confirmed that Huawei's upcoming flagship phone, the Mate 30 pro, won't have access to its apps or the Play Store.This news comes just over a week after the Chinese manufacturer was granted a further 90 days to trade with U.S. companies before being banned.Speaking with Reuters, a Google spokesperson has said that the Mate 30 won't be able to have access to Google apps or services.This is due to an executive order from May that prevents U.S. companies from trading with foreign companies that are deemed to be a national security risk.Huawei was granted a temporary 90-day license so it could continue to service and finish work with current customers, which was extended to November 20.The temporary license only applies to current products, and while many (including us) thought that perhaps that would leave the Mate 30 in the clear for an unimpeded release in September thanks to the temporary license.
