Should The Moon Be Considered A Planet?

Should The Moon Be Considered A Planet?

Every now and then a scientific paper makes a real splash. We had one recently, to judge from recent headlines. “Moon rises to claim its place as a planet” said The Sunday Times on February 19, while the Mail Online asked “Is this lunarcy?”. The articles were among many responding to the humble paper: “A Geophysical Planet Definition,” which suggested that the criteria for determining what constitutes a planet need an overhaul. It argued that the moon, Pluto and...

ARM Give Controls To A.I.

British chip designer ARM is announcing the next evolution of its ARM chip design which it calls DynamIQ which gives AI and ML control of the chip’s cores.

For those who came in late ARM’s big.LITTLE enabled a processor to have two different sets of cores, one high-power and one energy-efficient, and which works depending on the task required to save power. DynamIQ takes this big.LITTLE...

Scammers Trick iPhone Users Into Paying To Fix Non-existent Problem

Apple has fixed a bug in the iOS version of Safari that had been used by criminals to trick phone owners into paying $125 or more because they assumed the browser was broken. The flaw, fixed in Monday’s iOS 10.3 update, had been reported to Apple a month ago by researchers at San Francisco-based mobile security firm Lookout. “One of our users alerted us to this campaign, and said he had lost control of Safari on his iPhone,” Andrew Blaich, a Lookout security researcher, said in...

U.S. Commerce Department Removes ZTE From Trade Blacklist

Can Violence In A Game Promote Safety?

Can Violence In A Game Promote Safety?

When the original Doom was released in 1993, its unprecedentedly realistic graphic violence fueled a moral panic among parents and educators. Over time, the game’s sprite-based gore has lost a bit of its impact, and that previous sentence likely sounds absurd. Given what games have depicted in the nearly quarter century since Doom, that level of violence no longer shocking so much as it is quaint, perhaps even endearing. So when it came time for id Software to reboot the series with last year’s...

Astronomers Find Runaway Star Siblings

Researchers have spotted a long-lost relative of two runaway stars — the three likely parted ways in the Orion nebula as recently as the 1400s (from Earth’s perspective). Two of the young stars were previously discovered speeding away from one another using radio and infrared observations, and observers had traced back to where they could have originated if they’d been from the same system initially. But something didn’t quite add up: the two seemed to not have as much combined...

Uber Calls It Quit In Another Market

Ride-hailing group Uber Technologies will discontinue offering services in Denmark next month due to a taxi law that puts into effect new requirements for drivers such as mandatory fare meters, the company said on Tuesday.

Uber, which says about 2,000 Danish drivers...
