One of Europe's many electric scooter hopefuls has said he's bored of hearing about Brexit all the time too, as the political paralysis the B-word has unleashed on the UK is holding up reform of our many Victorian-era public carriage laws.A change in the law is needed in order for the country to fully embrace the shared electric scooter distribution future that's apparently the saviour of the toxic inner cities, as at the moment such machines are not allowed to be ridden anywhere other than around our houses and in the extremely few (1) places the laws have been specifically bent to accommodate them.Voi Technology's co-founder Fredrik Hjelm says his company is but one of many petitioning the UK government to examine the law for outdated mentions of horses and insert lots of allowances for e-scooters, but he's not expecting it to happen soon.He told the BBC that: "What we hear and feel is that Brexit is a big reason why things are moving so slowly.We don't have any high hopes of getting this [law change] through before Brexit, which I think is sad, because most other European countries have been quite quick in adapting and trying to find a good regulatory framework."The only way round existing legislation is to put a hoof in each corner of the machine and have it make neighing sounds every 20 metres so it may technically be described as a horse and allowed to roam the streets, but that would raise production costs.

An unspecified number of smart TVs manufactured by Samsung will lose native support for Netflix next month, the companies said in an announcement this week.Netflix app-installed — or available for — Samsung smart TVs manufactured in 2010 and 2011 (C and D lineups) — and likely sold for many years after that — will stop functioning December 2, Samsung alerted customers this week.In a statement, a company spokesperson said these TV models were sold only in the U.S. and Canada.In its statement, the top smart TV manufacturer advised affected customers to look for a game console, streaming media player, set-top box or other devices that still support the Netflix app to continue their binge-watching sessions.A Netflix spokesperson cited technical limitations for the change.“We’ve notified all impacted members with more information about alternative devices we support so they can keep enjoying Netflix uninterrupted,” the person added.

Aston Martin is convinced the answer is yes, and is counting on a plush interior of the new DBX sports truck to win you over – and encourage you to open your wallet for a six-figure SUV.The British automaker has been talking up its DBX plans for some time now, though the all-new model isn’t expected to arrive at dealerships until next year.Aston Martin says it’ll reveal the SUV in full on November 20, but so far all we’ve seen of the outside is a camouflaged prototype and several teasers.The latest teaser shot of the front of the DBX is above.Now, though, we also know what the cabin is going to be like.Aston Martin may have only released one image, but it’s enough to confirm that the DBX is shaping up to be an interesting mixture of its sporting history and the functionality you’d associate with an SUV.

Fordonsindustrin gör nu som många andra svenska branscher: Levererar en färdplan för fossilfrihet.För att nå målet har 13 branscher hittills tagit fram färdplaner för hur det ska gå till (se faktaruta).– Vi vill täcka upp alla Sveriges utsläpp och detta är en viktig del.När branschen visar vilken teknik den tror på blir det enklare för politiken att fatta rätt beslut, säger Svante Axelsson, nationell samordnare för Fossilfritt Sverige som arbetar på uppdrag av Miljö- och energidepartementet.Färdplanens avsändare är Bil Sweden, branschorganisationen som samlar tillverkare och importörer av personbilar, lastbilar och bussar.– Vi kommer också att presentera hur personbilsflottans sammansättning kommer att se ut och vilken effekt detta får på koldioxidutsläppen i Sverige.

Microsoft’s shift to a new .Net is nearly complete..Net Core 3.0 is here, and it’s the foundation for next year’s big bang release of .Net 5.0.That’s when .Net Core becomes the main development branch for all of .Net, and the old .Net Framework slides off into a well-deserved retirement and a very long support lifecycle.That doesn’t mean all your existing .Net code will run on .Net 5.0.To be honest, odds are it won’t.This is the new Microsoft, not the old, and keeping legacy code alive is no longer a priority.

You know how it is in dark times – it’s not just the monsters that are capable of being monstrous.Debuting at the Lucca Comics and Games Festival today, Netflix just dropped our latest look at its adaptation of The Witcher, starring Henry Cavill as the grumpy, titular sword-swinging mercenary hero.Based directly the cult hit fantasy novels by Andrzej Sapkowski rather than the beloved CD Projekt Red video game adaptation that catapulted the franchise to international renown, The Witcher follows Cavill’s Geralt of Rivia – part of a declining, supernatural order of warriors who train in magics, poisons, and the martial arts to hunt down monstrous creatures.This story has the makings of our greatest ballad yet.The Witcher arrives 20 December.But it’s not all fun and monster stabbing.

SQL Object Explorer, SQLCMD and more IntelliCode arrive for VS CodeMicrosoft's determination to foist on the world ever more ways of connecting to SQL Server has continued unabated with a major update of the mssql extension for the ubiquitous Visual Studio Code.Developers with a yearning for SQL Server are not short of options, with the venerable SQL Management Studio and upstart Azure Data Studio both making a decent fist of connecting to the data shack.However, since many developers these days prefer the default-to-dark-mode world of Visual Studio Code, Microsoft has emitted a substantial update which brings the SQL Server Management Studio Object Explorer and SQL Server command line support to the platform as well as some AI in the form of IntelliCode.Naturally, we had to take a look and pointed a copy of Visual Studio 1.39, updated with the new extension, at a local SQL Sever 2019 Preview to see how things worked.First up, the Object Explorer does indeed work as advertised, inflicting the tree view found in Microsoft's other data botherers onto VS Code for trotting through a hierarchal view of a given SQL Instance.

A team of researchers from UCLA has published a new study that presents new evidence that suggests Earth is not unique.UCLA professor Edward Young says that the team has raised the probability that many rocky planets are like Earth.The team was led by a UCLA graduate student of geochemistry and astrochemistry called Alexandra Doyle.Doyle developed a new method of analyzing the detail in the geochemistry of planets outside our solar system.She did this by analyzing the elements in rocks from asteroids or rocky planet fragments that orbited six white dwarf stars.White dwarfs are dense, burned-out remains of normal stars.

Like virtually every Apple TV customer, I truly wanted Apple to succeed with its TV-tethered set top box — an enabling device for early cable TV “cord cutters.” I bought into the vision back in 2007 when it took the form of a stripped down $299 Mac computer, went along for the ride when it devolved into a tiny $99 video streaming box in 2010, and kept my fingers crossed when 2015 and 2017 models added iOS-style apps and games to larger $149-$199 enclosures.Early on, Apple famously described the Apple TV platform as a “hobby.” But after 12 years of waiting for it to reach iPhone, iPad, or Apple Watch levels of success, and seeing only modest interest from consumers, it’s tempting to call it a failure.I wouldn’t go that far, but like many people, I’ve tired of waiting for Apple to conquer the living room.It had so many opportunities — and even patented a bunch of them — including DVR functionality, TV-based video teleconferencing, and folding Apple TV into actual TVs.One by one, those plans have seemingly evaporated, leaving Apple TV devices as islands: Apple-curated menu and app experiences accessible only from a TV set’s HDMI input.That’s why I was excited this week when Roku released an Apple TV app for Roku devices, importantly including third-party Roku TVs.

Just in time for Halloween, a gigantic Ouija board has found a home in Salem, Massachusetts.Measuring 3,168 square feet (294 square meters) and weighing over 9,000 pounds (4,082 kilograms), the world's largest Ouija board known as Ouijazilla debuted Saturday via the Talking Board Historical Society in Salem -- the infamous site of witch trials back in the 1600s.Ouijazilla was made using 99 sheets of plywood covered in 20 gallons of wood stain and paint."It has taken Rick "Ormortis" Schreck a year to secretly create this behemoth that will be known as the King of all Talking Boards," the Talking Board Historical Society posted on Instagram."It is by far the largest board in the world."To use the board, players ask Ouijazilla questions and then maneuver a 400-pound planchette using a huge pencil to spell out the answers that some believe come from the spirit world.

For one, this update is the first for Apple to drop 32-bit application support, which is causing all sorts of headaches for users of smaller apps, plug-ins, and other software that may not be updated for quite some time or may have been created by a company that no longer exists.There are also a fair number of other issues with Catalina, like Adobe software incompatibility problems and unforeseen hurdles related to the removal of iTunes.That leads us to a series of important questions for Mac users who may be at risk of having important workflows disrupted by Catalina.What exactly might go wrong if you do upgrade?What’s wrong with Catalina so far?Other popular pieces of software ensnared by this 32- to 64-bit transition include older versions of Microsoft Office, numerous legacy versions of Mac apps like GarageBand, and discontinued apps like iPhoto.

The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court ruled last year that the law enforcement agency improperly searched an NSA repository for information on Americans, according to the declassified documents.The court found that the FBI intercepted emails without obtaining a warrant, a violation of Americans' Fourth Amendment protections against unreasonable search and seizure.The FBI appealed the decision to FISA, which affirmed the ruling and issued new querying procedures for the FBI.Under a new requirement mandated by Congress in 2018, US agencies wishing to search the NSA repository for Americans' data must get court approval for rules covering how they intend to search the database.FBI searches of the database mustn't be overly broad, have an authorized purpose and a reasonable expectation of uncovering evidence of a crime.The FISA court, under Judge James E. Boasberg, found tens of thousands of queries executed in 2017 and 2018 were unlikely to return evidence of a crime (PDF).

Editor's note: Intel has reached out and clarified that the Gen12 and Xe graphics referred to in this presentation were mistranslated.The speaker at the IDC event didn't mention ray tracing or refer to the Xe graphics in Tiger lake as 'Gen 12'.This was all due to a mistranslation, thanks to Google Translate.The original story continues below ...Intel has revealed more about its incoming Gen12 graphics, which by all accounts will mean you’ll be able to play contemporary esports games like Fortnite at a fluid 60 frames per second (in Full HD resolution) on gaming laptops with an integrated GPU.These revelations come from the Intel Developer Conference (IDC) over in Tokyo, where the chip giant had plenty to say about the Gen12 graphics which will be incorporated with its Tiger Lake laptop processors (the successor to current Ice Lake chips) and Xe discrete GPUs, both of which are expected to arrive next year.

Lab-grown foods like the Impossible Burger represent the ultimate conflict in health information: We're told that plant-based diets are healthy, but we're also told that processed foods are unhealthy.But as faux meat burgers skyrocket to unprecedented levels of popularity, it's worth taking a closer look at what's actually inside plant-based meat products and comparing the health implications.In this article, CNET covers how the two most common meat alternatives (faux beef and faux chicken) nutritionally compare to their real counterparts.Real beef vs. plant-based beefGone are the days of crumbly black bean and tofu patties.The Impossible Burger and the Beyond Burger definitely top the fake beef popularity charts, but Kellogg, Kroger, Meatless Farm Co and other brands have followed suit with similar meatless patties.

NASA’s Juno mission, launched in 2011, has collected a wealth of information about Jupiter since it arrived in 2016.It has discovered unexpectedly storm-free poles, learned about the planet’s complex weather system, observed bizarre geometric storms, and captured some truly beautiful images.And this week the craft it pulled off a feat of precision engineering, performing its longest propulsive maneuver in a race against the setting sun.The dramatic intervention was necessary because, like many spacecraft, Juno is solar powered.The mission was originally intended to end in 2018, but the craft entered a different orbit than planned, so its mission was extended to 2021.This extra time put the craft at risk of being trapped by an eclipse, as on its previous path it would have had to spend 12 hours in transit across the planet’s shadow with any direct sunlight.

It’s estimated that over 17,500 new spinal cord injuries occur each year in the U.S., meaning 54 people out of every million Americans experience one.Patients regain the majority of function within the first six months after the injury, but any remaining loss present after a year is much more likely to become permanent.(Over 30% of spinal cord injuries result in partial or complete paralysis.)That’s why engineers and neurosurgeons at Brown University, Rhode Island Hospital, Intel, and Micro-Leads Medical have committed to spending the next two years designing and building an Intelligent Spine Interface (ISI), which they say will record motor and sensory signals from spinal cord neurons and learn to stimulate those neurons using AI.Their work expands on that of teams in Switzerland and at the Kentucky Spinal Cord Injury Research Center at the University of Louisville, which found that spinal cord stimulation can help restore voluntary muscle control post-injury.Yet another effort — the ByAxon project, a four-year, four-nation initiative funded by the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 Future and Emerging Technologies — will similarly prototype implants that reconnect nerves on either side of an injury.
