    RUSH: A couple recent examples of political correctness. I don’t know how many of you use Google Maps, but Google Maps just issued an update to the app that they had to withdraw in less than 24 hours. Google Maps included a new feature. And let me describe it for you. Let’s say you’re in Manhattan and you need to go from point A to point B, and you put those addresses in, and it calculates your route and tells us how long it’s gonna take you to get there if you’re driving or if you take public transit or...
  • Apple removes popular pro-life prayer app after liberals complain

    Apple banned a pro-life mobile application after abortion supporters complained, even though the app was approved and previously offered on its App Store. Human Coalition (HC) created a mobile app that sends prayer alerts to intercessors and church groups. “Human Coalition’s prayer app is a platform where pro-life advocates can gather together in prayer for abortion-determined women and their children and families,” HC’s public relations director Lauren Enriquez told LifeSiteNews. “Our supporters have found the app helpful in their mission to extend all forms of support, including prayer support, to the women and children we serve and rescue.” The app,...

Based out of Arizona, Wozniak hopes to launch physical locations for learning in over 30 cities across the globe. The platform will initially be centred around computer support specialists and software developers, with courses on data science, mobile applications and cybersecurity to be added in the future. In addition to the education platform, Woz U will also offer platforms for tech companies to recruit, train and retain their workforce...

    Apple’s Denise Young Smith, the newly minted Vice President of Diversity at the tech giant, has caused outrage in the industry over comments she made in defense of diversity of thought. Silicon Valley has been in an all-out push to bring in more women and minorities, so when Smith said, “I focus on everyone. Diversity is the human experience,” without focusing specifically on race or gender, liberal publications criticized her.Smith ultimately apologized for the sentiment.Smith, an African-American woman, continued, I get a little bit frustrated when diversity or the term diversity is tagged to the people of color or the...

    The release notes for iOS 11.0.3—an iPhone operating system update pushed to customers Thursday—comes with a not-so-subtle warning: Don't get your phone fixed by anyone who isn't Apple.The update fixes a few bugs, namely one that caused a loss of touch functionality on a small subset of phones that had been repaired with certain third-party screens and had been updated to iOS 11."Addresses an issue where touch input was unresponsive on some iPhone 6S displays because they were not serviced with genuine Apple parts," the update reads. "Note: Non-genuine replacement displays may have compromised visual quality and may fail to...

  • Siri was first, but Google’s AI now has a higher IQ

    New York Post ^ | October 9, 2017 | Yoni Heisler, BGR
    When Siri first hit the scene in 2011 — as the flagship feature on the iPhone 4s, no less — it was a novel piece of software to say the least. The early version of Siri wasn’t terribly powerful, but it was able to answer relatively basic queries and handle rather simple tasks such as setting reminders. In subsequent updates, Siri became much more powerful, even adding contextual awareness along the way. Equally as important, Siri’s ability to parse and understand language improved by leaps and bounds as well. SNIP According to HotHardware, engineers at Cornell decided to stack a...

Previous releases of the iPhone attracted hundreds of Apple fans waiting in the early morning hours at several stores across Southern California.

  • Raid on Gibraltar: How the U.S. Patent System was Rigged Against Independent Inventors

    For decades, individual inventors were granted 25 percent or more of all U.S. patents. This creativity was the foundation of dozens of new industries, thousands of new companies and millions of new jobs. Yet beginning in the early 1980s, their portion of granted patents begin to drop like a rock in free fall. By 2015, individual inventors received only 5.8 percent. A decline so great and so fast has profound consequences and is not an accident or fluke. A useful place to begin the examination of this decline is a 1998 interview of Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates who was asked,...
  • Apple’s FaceID Could Be a Powerful Tool for Mass Spying

    wired.com ^ | 09/14/2017 | Jake Laperruque
    Consumers are already questioning whether FaceID could be spoofed. And it's also possible police would be able to more easily unlock phones without consent by simply holding an individual’s phone up to his or her face. But FaceID should create fear about another form of government surveillance: mass scans to identify individuals based on face profiles. Law enforcement is rapidly increasing use of facial recognition; one in two American adults are already enrolled in a law enforcement facial recognition network, and at least one in four police departments have the capacity to run face recognition searches. Still, until now, co-opting...

    I am not going to go over the new hardware being brought out by Apple.  Fanboys are already cooing over the new iPhones.  But something – something that flew under the radar to all but techies – is about to substantially alter the power and cost of computing. To those following the Apple event, one item was missing: the Mac Mini.  The Mac Mini was and is Apple's desktop option for those who want to buy just the core computer and provide their own monitor, speakers, keyboard, et al.  In its heyday (the 2012 Server Model), the Mac Mini...

    New products have same price in both currencies, suggesting Apple is taking advantage of British customers’ acceptance of price hikes since the EU Referendum Tuesday’s iPhone X launch event brought familiar news to British viewers: the Brexit-induced devaluation of the pound means that everything is really, really expensive. Every product announced by Apple onstage has the same price in pounds and dollars, from the cheapest Apple TV – £149 or $149 – to the most expensive iPhone X, a grand more at $1,149 or £1,149... ...The prices quoted for US customers are exclusive of sales taxes, which vary state-by-state, while...

    The new Apple iPhone X replaces the fingerprint scanner with facial recognition to unlock the phone. If you recall, some courts ruled that forcing you to give up your fingerprint to access your iPhone content was okay and did not require a search warrant. How will they rule about facial recognition and will they even have to?
