«Jusqu’à mardi dernier, l’iPhone X était un smartphone en sursis, un échec ambulant. Les analystes lui promettaient mille morts, mille descentes aux enfers. La lente agonie du produit raté qu’on attendait au firmament.Puis Apple a annoncé ses résultats financiers et le flop est devenu une bête de compétition, un tueur de marché, l’alpha dominant. Selon Apple, il a en effet survolé les ventes hebdomadaires de tout le premier trimestre 2018. Mieux, il est non seulement l’iPhone le plus vendu… mais aussi le smartphone le plus vendu».

«Voters in Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Wisconsin, all states with tight races, were the most targeted. Specifically, voters in Wisconsin were targeted with gun ads about 72 percent more often than the national average. She also found that white voters received 87 percent of all immigration ads. It makes sense that swing states would be more heavily targeted overall leading up to an election. And Kim didn’t analyze the Russians trolls’ targets independently from the other unregulated ads, given the small sample size of 19 groups».

«Facebook is bringing « dark posts » into the light in response to the election interference on social media last year, and the new rules will impact all advertisers.On Friday, Facebook revealed a new system of disclosing what groups and companies paid for ads on its platform: Any ads running on Facebook will be readily viewable by anyone.That means no more so-called dark posts, ads that target only a particular set of people but are invisible otherwise because they never appear as posts on a brand or group’s page».

“Tesla withdrew from the party agreement with the NTSB because it requires that we not release information about Autopilot to the public, a requirement which we believe fundamentally affects public safety negatively. We believe in transparency, so an agreement that prevents public release of information for over a year is unacceptable. Even though we won’t be a formal party, we will continue to provide technical assistance to the NTSB.”

«MIT researchers have developed a computer interface that can transcribe words that the user verbalizes internally but does not actually speak aloud.The system consists of a wearable device and an associated computing system. Electrodes in the device pick up neuromuscular signals in the jaw and face that are triggered by internal verbalizations — saying words “in your head” — but are undetectable to the human eye. The signals are fed to a machine-learning system that has been trained to correlate particular signals with particular words».

#GAMEON After seeing that the White House produced a video depicting video games as ultra-violent, we felt compelled to share a different view of games. Video games, their innovative creators and the vast community of players are so much more than what is depicted in the White House’s video. We wanted to create our own version, at the same length, to challenge the White House’s misdirected blame being placed upon video games. To all you game developers and players who create and enjoy games – this is for you!

Vero - True Social

«Il apparaît que Vero a entrepris une large campagne auprès des influenceurs Instagram durant ces dernières semaines. Aux États-Unis, l’entreprise a touché des personnalités comme Christian Collins qui a promu l’application auprès de ses millions d’abonnés. Rapidement, les influenceurs ont fait connaître l’application autour d’eux et la presse américaine s’est mise à relayer une « migration massive  » d’utilisateurs Instagram vers Vero— largement mise en scène par l’entreprise d’Hariri».

«We’re glad those are the choices we’ve made. Today, we are launching the Signal Foundation, an emerging 501(c)(3) nonprofit created and made possible by Brian Acton, the co-founder of WhatsApp, to support, accelerate, and broaden Signal’s mission of making private communication accessible and ubiquitous. In case you missed it, Brian left WhatsApp and Facebook last year, and has been thinking about how to best focus his future time and energy on building nonprofit technology for public good.
Starting with an initial $50,000,000 in funding, we can now increase the size of our team, our capacity, and our ambitions».

«Sommes-nous en train de devenir des acteurs de notre propre vie ? Oui, acteurs au sens de la scène. Ce qui veut dire souvent de moins en moins acteurs au sens agissant ou ayant prise sur. Car plus nous apprenons qu’il faut plus faire savoir que savoir faire, plus nous devenons captifs de cette mise en scène. Sans oublier que cela demande beaucoup de travail, de constance, de mobilisation, pour seulement maintenir une image, une réputation».
