“Considérations stratégiques et morales mises à part, Palantir est-elle vraiment la meilleure dans son domaine ? Depuis deux ans, de très nombreuses sociétés et administrations ont pourtant dénoncé les contrats passés avec l’entreprise. Trop chers, au regard des services rendus, ont estimé Coca-Cola ou Home Depot, aux Etats-Unis. En Europe, l’assureur Axa n’a pas non plus renouvelé son contrat avec Palantir, après avoir développé ses propres systèmes d’analyse de données en interne. JP Morgan Chase, l’un de ses premiers grands comptes du secteur privé, a cessé sa collaboration, après un scandale rocambolesque ayant vu le chef de la sécurité de la banque mettre des membres du conseil d’administration sous surveillance, avec l’appui des outils de Palantir.”

Driving Mode is a clever new version of navigation mode that uses your location history and web searches to make assumptions about where you’re going and give traffic updates and ETAs as you travel. It’s sort of like the commute feature for work and home addresses, but with some data-mining genius to make it more flexible. The new mode can be launched with a shortcut on the homescreen or from the nav drawer.

It doesn’t try to tally the number by querying the individual accounts of all the people who have posted those “Likes.” Since these accounts sit in databases that run on hard disk, that would take too long. Instead, the company keeps a “Like” count for each photo in a single database cell, and it accesses this single cell as needed. “That’s just one disk access of about ten micro-seconds,” says Instagram engineer Lisa Guo.
