There’s nowhere to hide: This drone can track targets through forests

A team of researchers from Austria recently developed an AI-powered drone capable of tracking moving objects through dense foliage. So much for escaping to the woods and living off the land if the machines ever rise up against us. Per the team’s research paper: While detecting and tracking moving targets through foliage is difficult (and often even impossible) in regular aerial images or videos, it becomes practically feasible with image integration … This finding together with the implementation of an initial drone-operated camera array for parallel synthetic aperture aerial imaging allows presenting first results on tracking moving people through dense… This story continues at The Next Web …read more Source::… Read More

Democrats say Google must curb location tracking before Roe repeal

Illustration by Alex Castro / The Verge A group of more than 40 Democratic members of Congress has asked Google to stop collecting and retaining “unnecessary” location data out of fear that it could be used to identify and prosecute people who have obtained abortions. The request was made in a letter sent to Google CEO Sundar Pichai on Tuesday by members of the House and Senate, led by Senator Ron Wyden (D-OR) and including well-known progressive representatives such as Ayanna Pressley, Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. “We believe that abortion is health care,” the letter states. “We will fight tooth and nail to ensure that it remains… Read More

Third-party widgets are coming to Windows 11, which might actually make them useful

Enlarge / Microsoft will allow third-party apps to bundle their own widgets starting later this year. (credit: Microsoft) When Windows 11 did away with support for Live Tiles, Microsoft attempted to relocate some of that quick, glance-able information into a new Widgets menu that lives in the taskbar alongside the Start and search menus. Our main issue with widgets in our Windows 11 review was that they were limited to Microsoft’s apps and services, with no mechanism for third parties to develop their own widgets. That will change later this year, according to an announcement made at Microsoft’s Build developer conference. Third parties will be able to develop their own… Read More

Pixel 6 owners aren’t thrilled with Google’s overpriced, yellowing cases

This is supposed to be pink. | Image: u/A_Giant_Baguette on Reddit Google Pixel 6 and 6 Pro users aren’t impressed with Google’s $30 first-party cases. Looking at Reddit and reviews on Amazon, there are dozens of people complaining about the transparent plastic showing extreme yellowing, warping, or just plain not fitting the phone from the factory.

Top Gun: Maverick spoiler-free review: A worthy return to the danger zone

Enlarge / Tom Cruise, still crazy after all these years. (credit: Skydance Productions) As I walked out of my review screening of Top Gun: Maverick, coming down from its adrenaline-filled finale, a small part of my brain began looking for dents in the film’s armor. Maybe it’s the critic in me, but my thoughts didn’t need long to land on stuff from the original film—a plot point, a stylistic choice, a particular character—that didn’t return this time. I chewed on those thoughts for a second, but before I could lose myself in cataloging them at length, a sensation came over me. It landed like a massive G-force blast, as if… Read More

Judge: Tesla can’t force alleged sexual harassment victim into arbitration

(credit: Getty Images | Justin Sullivan) Tesla can’t force a woman who sued the company over sexual harassment into arbitration, a judge ruled on Monday. Jessica Barraza sued Tesla in November 2021 in Alameda County Superior Court in California, alleging that she and other women working in the carmaker’s Fremont factory were subjected to “nightmarish conditions of rampant sexual harassment.” The Tesla factory “resembles a crude, archaic construction site or frat house,” with women enduring sexual comments, propositions, and inappropriate touching, the lawsuit said. Barraza also alleged Tesla retaliated against her after she complained about sexual… Read More

iPhone 14 rumor points to a price bump – but for a good reason

The arrival of the iPhone 14 may see Apple finally taking its selfie cameras seriously – but it could come at a price that puts off some buyers. That’s according to Korean news site ET News, which has published the latest in a series of reports on the Apple supply chain, looking at the camera modules Apple is said to be using for the front-facing snapper. There’s a lot to dig into here. Apparently, Apple has ditched the manufacturer it was originally planning to use for these components, and will instead use LG, which was slated to produce the front cameras for the iPhone 15 range.
