Amazon is coming under fire once again after allegedly collecting confidential information from startups to produce and launch competing products.
In a recent article published by The Wall Street Journal, DefinedCrowd Corp., a technology startup, accused the multinational technology company of investing in their startup to gain access to confidential information.
According to DefinedCrowd founder and Chief Executive Daniela Braga, Amazon's venture-capital fund invested in their company. The funding earned the e-commerce giant access to the technology startup's finances and other information. Four years later, Amazon launched a cloud-computing unit that resembled what DefinedCrowd has.
Amazon Web Services' artificial intelligence product, called A21, competes with the startup business' foundational product. The new offering collects and labels data, which was almost exactly what DefinedCrowd's product did.
After seeing the announcement, Braga decided to limit Amazon's access to their company's data. She also diluted their stake by over 90 percent.
Several entrepreneurs and investors accused Amazon of meeting with startups about …
Corning has revealed a new and more resilient Gorilla glass and calls it “Gorilla Glass Victus.” It said that the glass technology is twice as scratch resistant as Gorilla Glass 6 and can survive a fall from a height of 2m.
Nearly every smartphone, laptop, tablet, wearables come with glass protection to protect the screen. And Corning has been leading glass protection on smartphones for several years.
Smartphone manufacturers have been using Corning Gorilla Glass 6 for over three years now. In fact, your smartphone might just be using Corning glass protection on the front and/or on the back.
“Victus” appears to be the successor of Gorilla Glass 6. While Corning has derailed from the standard naming scheme, evidence suggests that it could be called Gorilla Glass 7. The evidence comes from Samsung’s Galaxy Note 20 leaks, which says the Ultra model will come with GG7.
Coming to specifics, Corning said the glass scratches between 7-10 Newtons, whereas previous generations …

A reporter went to the 2020 Border Security Expo in San Antonio, TX to interview the vendors who sell cages and technology to worsen the lives of desperate people. I didn't agree with much of what they had to say, but couldn't agree more with the guy who declared he would only eat meat grilled on charcoal, not gas.

Despite very public messaging that the Bluetooth contact-tracing tools for COVID-19 developed by Google and Apple would not track users' locations, its implementation within Android operating systems still collects GPS data that Google could use to determine the user's location, The New York Times reports.
The issue is driven by the operating system's device location setting, which must be enabled for the system to scan for other devices using Bluetooth. This requirement has been in place since 2015, because some apps will use Bluetooth as a means of understanding the user's location, according to a Google representative who spoke to the Times.
Google is able to use the activated setting to identify a user's location through non-cellular communications, such as WiFi and Bluetooth beacons. The company's representative said that apps built with the contact-tracing tools do not have access to these data without user permission.
WHY IT MATTERS
Google and Apple's contact-tracing technology has been employed in …
Eamonn Forde at The Quietus has a great new piece celebrating the 25th anniversary of the MP3, arguing that it was the single most influential music technology revolution in history — even moreso than the phonograph or early vinyl recordings. If you ask me, he makes a pretty convincing argument:
In terms of the history of music ownership – something that has really only existed for just over a century – the MP3 was not a full stop but rather an ellipsis.
It was the last audio format that people could own but, as it was a digital string of zeros and ones, it was inherently intangible. You cannot look at an MP3 but you can see its impact everywhere.[…]
This is important: it was technology first, music second. It was created as part of a strategy of media synergy. It was by the record business, for the record business. Most significantly, it was …
Around 1.9 million people in the US are currently living with limb loss. The trauma of losing a limb is just the beginning of what amputees have to face, with the sky-high cost of prosthetics making their circumstance that much more challenging.
Prosthetics can run over $50,000 for a complex limb (like an arm or a leg) and aren’t always covered by insurance. As if shelling out that sum one time wasn’t costly enough, kids’ prosthetics need to be replaced as they outgrow them, meaning the total expense can reach hundreds of thousands of dollars.
A startup called Unlimited Tomorrow is trying to change this, and using cutting-edge technology to do so. Based in Rhinebeck, New York, a town about two hours north of New York City, the company was founded by 23-year-old Easton LaChappelle. He’d been teaching himself the basics of robotics and building prosthetics since grade school (his 8thgrade science fair project …

New website from the MIT Center for Advanced Virtuality rewrites an important moment in history to educate the public on the dangers of deepfakes.
Can you recognize a digitally manipulated video when you see one? It’s harder than most people realize. As the technology to produce realistic “deepfakes” becomes more easily available, distinguishing fact from fiction will only get more challenging. A new digital storytelling project from MIT’s Center for Advanced Virtuality aims to educate the public about the world of deepfakes with “In Event of Moon Disaster.”
This provocative website showcases a “complete” deepfake (manipulated audio and video) of U.S. President Richard M. Nixon delivering the real contingency speech written in 1969 for a scenario in which the Apollo 11 crew were unable to return from the moon. The team worked with a voice actor and a company called Respeecher to produce the synthetic speech using deep learning techniques. They also worked with the …
NEXTSENSE, a Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence company, and a specialist in automotive gap and flush inspection is launching its new Calipri CB20 with patented CaliBreeze™ technology that enables the measurement of surfaces that were previously not measurable. Transparent materials like glass or plastics as well as any painted surface or highly reflective chromium parts can be measured easily and reliably.
The unique combination of blue laser technology from the NextSense Calipri C12 sensor and the use of water vapor to neutralize reflectivity issues brings the measurementof gap and flush to a next level states the company.
The patented CaliBreeze technology uses microscopic water droplets to produce optical contrast on surfaces that are not measureable with conventional optical technology. It is described as the same process as breathing on your glasses to clean them and allows the elimination of errors and outliers caused by poor reflectivity. The water droplets evaporate within seconds …
