Illustration by Alex Castro / The Verge Netflix is letting people choose the speed at which they want to watch something on their phone or tablet with new playback controls. Netflix will allow anyone on an Android mobile device to stream at either 0.5x or 0.75x speeds for slowed-down viewing and 1.25x or 1.5x speeds for faster watching. Those are slightly fewer options than YouTube, which allows people to slow all the way down to 0.25x speeds, and speed up by twice the normal playback speed. Playback speed options are also available on downloaded titles that people have saved for offline viewing. Subscribers must opt in to use the playback speeds with every single title they want to watch; it won’t just remain active when you pick something else to watch. This prevents... Continue reading…

Apple may be preparing to bring Face ID to the Mac, according to 9to5Mac. The blog spotted references to Apple's TrueDepth camera in the code for macOS Big Sur, the company's next big software update for Mac computers. The discovery comes as Apple is preparing to make its own chips for future Mac computers, a move that will make it easier for the company to bring custom features like Face ID to its laptops and desktops. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. You can already unlock your iPhone and iPad just by looking at them, and it seems like that feature will soon be coming to the Mac as well.  The beta version of Apple's macOS Big Sur software update launching for Mac computers later this year reportedly includes references to the company's TrueDepth camera, according to 9to5Mac. The blog found codes titled "FaceDetect" and "BioCapture" within a new extension found in the software.  Apple did not immediately respond to Business Insider's request for comment regarding the code and whether it plans to bring Face ID to the Mac. The Mac is one of Apple's only major products that does not support facial recognition, likely because it lacks the neural engine found in Apple's custom chips. The neural engine in Apple's processors turns the infrared image and depth data captured by the iPhone or iPad's camera  into a mathematical representation that the device then compares against the face data you've enrolled, as Apple explains on its website. The company introduced Face ID to the iPhone with the iPhone X in 2017 and brought it to the iPad Pro in 2018.  Now that Apple will be designing its own processors for the Mac rather than relying on Intel's chips, a move it announced at its Worldwide Developers Conference, there's more opportunity for the company to bring custom features like Face ID to its laptops and desktops.  Apple has also filed a patent application detailing a system for bringing Face ID to the Mac. That document also included drawings of laptops and monitors that include the same "notch" cutout above the screen for Face ID as the iPhone.  The company said that its first computer to launch with Apple's own chips will arrive by the end of 2020, but it did not share any additional details.  "When we look ahead, we envision some amazing new products," Apple CEO Tim Cook said during the announcement. "And transitioning to our own custom silicon is what will enable us to bring them to life."SEE ALSO: Your future MacBook will probably look a lot more like the iPhone — and that could be just what Apple needs to get ahead of Windows Join the conversation about this story » NOW WATCH: Pathologists debunk 13 coronavirus myths

My admiration for the OnePlus Bullets Wireless 2 is no secret — I wrote a bloody love letter to it. So, when rumors of a new OnePlus neck bud started earlier this year, I was excited to see improvements the company might’ve brought. Alas, the Chinese smartphone company decided to release a budget successor to the Bullets Wireless 2 — the Bullets Wireless Z. The new neckband was priced at $49 as compared to $99 of the Wireless 2. OnePlus justified the low pricing with a bigger battery and comparatively inferior sound. Design and functionality If you’ve seen or used… This story continues at The Next Web

Photo by Bobby Quillard Dr Disrespect has spoken up for the first time in over two weeks in conversations with multiple news outlets, but the streamer declined to comment on why he might have been banned from Twitch and provided only vague details about what might come next. The streamer, real name Herschel “Guy” Beahm, told The Washington Post that he wasn’t interested in “engaging crazy speculation” about the reasons behind his apparent ban. He’s “considering” a lawsuit against Twitch, according to PC Gamer, and he’s starting to figure out what the Doc’s return will look like. He also said he took a short vacation to the beach. “I’ve been dealing with a lot of stress and anxiety,” Beahm said. “Honestly, we just don’t know.” Beahm’s Twitch account disappeared...

En uppsättning kameror och en dator är allt som behövs för att göra din bil åtminstone delvis självkörande.Amerikanska startupen Ghost Locomotion har dragit in över 600 miljoner kronor till idén om ett eftermarknadskit.Allt fler bedömare tycks mena att helt självkörande bilar är svårare att utveckla än vad som tidigare förutspåtts.Körning mellan avfarter på motorvägar utgör däremot en relativt enkel trafikmiljö som är fullt hanterbar redan idag.Eftersom två tredjedelar av all körning i USA görs på motorvägar – och många redan har en bil – utvecklar den amerikanska startupen Ghost Locomotion ett eftermarknadskit som ska kunna göra ett 20-tal ”populära modeller” från 2012 och framåt kapabla att köra autonomt på motorvägar, skriver Venturebeat.Har dragit in 617 miljoner dollar

Although the intention was to generate conversation around the site’s implications, the exercise gave Tynski a glimpse into a potentially darker digital future in which it is impossible to distinguish reality from fiction.AI’s ability to further automate content creation could leave everyone from journalists to brands unable to connect with an audience that no longer trusts search engine results and must assume that the bulk of what they see online is fake.Even if it is possible for Google to do it, the time and the resources it would take to incorporate this into search would be difficult.”The intersection between AI and creativity has been expanding rapidly as algorithms are used to create music, song lyrics, and short fiction.Earlier this year, the OpenAI project stepped squarely into this battlefield when it announced it had developed powerful language software that was so fluent it could nearly match human capabilities in producing text.Among them were two masters students at Brown University, Aaron Gokaslan and Vanya Cohen.

Ecommerce is big in Southeast Asia, and it continues to grow.A joint report by Google, Temasek, and Bain & Company shows that regional ecommerce was worth US$38 billion in 2019: seven times that of 2015.Shopper numbers increased as well, with 150 million people buying things online in 2019, an increase from 49 million in 2015.The report also forecasts that ecommerce in Southeast Asia will be worth US$153 billion by 2025.But these encouraging numbers don’t mean that everything is perfect.Merchants and customers still face regional commerce obstacles such as cross-border transaction costs, geo-based platforms that limit market reach, and a lack of accessibility for the region’s sizable unbanked population.
