A dead mall near Apple’s Silicon Valley headquarters is transforming into a $4 billion development

An exterior view of the Apple Park Visitor Center in Cupertino, California. City officials approved the construction of a $4 billion development project just blocks away from Apple Park, the company's new headquarters. The project was stalled for years due to concerns about congestion, traffic, and declining home values. The approval could set a precedent for future affordable housing proposals, including a $29 million initiative in San Francisco's Mission District. For two years, Cupertino residents have warred over a possible solution to the Bay Area housing crisis. In 2014, developers began working on a plan to transform a now-vacant mall...

German energy company: saving threatened forest 'illusion'

A German energy executive whose company plans to clear an ancient forest to expand a lignite strip mine says it's an "illusion" to think the woodland can be saved, and halting the project would cost his firm up to 5 billion euros ($5.9 billion). RWE wants to start cutting down half the Hambach forest in western Germany. Environmentalists want to prevent that. Authorities suspended the eviction of protesters Wednesday after a journalist fell to his death from a rope bridge between two treehouses. RWE chief executive Rolf Martin Schmitz told ZDF television late Thursday "the assumption that the forest can...

Window Seat over Hudson Bay

Explanation: On the August 18 night flight from San Francisco to Zurich, a window seat offered this tantalizing view when curtains of light draped a colorful glow across the sky over Hudson Bay. Constructed by digitally stacking six short exposures made with a hand held camera, the scene records the shimmering aurora borealis or northern lights just as the approaching high altitude sunrise illuminated the northeastern horizon. It also caught the flash of a Perseid meteor streaking beneath the handle stars of the Big Dipper of the north. A few days past the meteor shower's peak, its trail still points...

Argentina bets on $600 million satellite to advance agriculture sector

Argentina is launching a new microwave imaging satellite to monitor natural disasters and soil moisture, in a long-term bid to bolster the farm sector, an industry that has historically been the backbone of the country’s economy. Scheduled to launch on a SpaceX Falcon rocket from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California on Oct. 6, Argentina’s SAOCOM 1a satellite “is going to boost the high quality precision agriculture Argentina relies on,” President Mauricio Macri told farmers and industry representatives last week. Scientists say the soil and subsurface mapping data provided by the $600 million dollar project should help increase crop yields....

Take Apple's guided tour of the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR

In case it slipped your mind, today is the release date for the 5.8-inch Apple iPhone XS and 6.5-inch iPhone XS Max. The iPhone XR, with its 6.1-inch LCD display, will launch on October 26th. Today, Apple posted an official guided tour video of its new handsets. For many iPhone users, this will be the first model they've owned that doesn't have a home button, so the first thing to learn is that to go "home," swipe up from the bottom. Swiping up and pausing gives the user access to his open apps; close each app by swiping it off...

Google’s Pixel 3 XL was this year’s worst kept secret. A few weeks ago, a man was selling production Pixel 3 XL devices on the black market, far ahead of the phone’s official launch, so we’ve already got a good look at the huge notch, the big chin, and the refined glass-window design on the back. Today, the Pixel 3 XL poses for a few more high-resolution photos thanks to @IshanAgarwal24 on Twitter. This is the while model, which we see had the green mint-colored accent key on the power button. Likewise, we again see the massive size of the...

Twitter discovers software privacy bug affecting direct messages

Twitter says it found a software bug that may have sent some private messages to the wrong people. But the company says the problem specifically involved direct messages or protected tweets sent to businesses and other accounts overseen by software developers. The issue, which started in May 2017, could in some cases have directed messages to the wrong developer. The company discovered and fixed the flaw on Sept. 10. Twitter says less than 1 percent of its 335 million users were affected, and notes that it hasn’t seen evidence that any actual messages were misdelivered. Twitter says it has notified...

Congressmen question Google over kids’ privacy on YouTube

Two members of Congress are calling on Google to address concerns that YouTube might violate children’s privacy. Rep. David Cicilline, a Rhode Island Democrat, and Rep. Jeff Fortenberry, a Nebraska Republican, sent a letter this week to Google CEO Sundar Pichai asking for more details about how the service collects data. Their letter comes months after privacy advocates filed a complaint about YouTube with the Federal Trade Commission. The April complaint alleged that YouTube violates the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act, known as COPPA, which bans kid-oriented websites from collecting personal information from children under 13 without their parents’ consent....
