'We sped like crazy': Amazon delivery drivers say they feel pressure to drive dangerously, urinate in bottles, and sprint on the job

Ann Chval said female drivers brought buckets and baby wipes to work so they could go to the bathroom inside their trucks. Some drivers who deliver packages for Amazon told Business Insider they speed, blow stop signs, and skip meal and bathroom breaks to complete deliveries on time.  The drivers we interviewed are managed by third-party courier companies that work out of Amazon facilities. Amazon provides the companies with packages, delivery routes, navigation software, and scanning devices. Ann Chval said female drivers at Amazon-affiliated delivery company JARS TD brought buckets and baby wipes to work so they could go to...

Before-and-after photos show the devastating destruction in Malibu as the California wildfires rage on

A wildfire burns a home near Malibu Lake on Friday, November 9.

Authorities report that the fire has spread across 91,500 acres of land and is only 20% contained.  Nearby, the Hill Fire has destroyed more than 4,500 acres, but was 80% contained...

Can listening to bees tell us why they are in decline?

Can artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning help save the world's bees? That's the hope of scientists who are scrambling to reverse the dramatic declines in bee populations.Bees are in trouble, but we're not quite sure why. It could be the overuse of insecticides; air pollution; warming temperatures; the varroa destructor mite; or even interference from electromagnetic radiation.Or it could be a combination of all these factors. But until we have more data, we won't know for sure.So the World Bee Project and IT firm Oracle are creating a global network of AI "smart hives" to give scientists real-time data...

Cassette Tapes Are Back, Don't You Dare Call Them Obsolete

Steve Stepp knew audiotapes were going to come back before you did, and not just because he’s a man whose family company put its faith behind the machinery 50 years ago. Also because Pearl Jam called. It was 2008 or 2009, and the 20th anniversary of the album Ten was coming up. They wanted to release a collector’s edition that would include a CD, a cassette, a vinyl record, and a scrapbook. “They were going to do 15 or 20 thousand sets and see how it would go over with their fans,” says Stepp, president of the family-owned National Audio...

Netflix updated its app to resolve an early annoyance with Apple’s new iPad Pro

Netflix today released an update for its iOS app that adds full support for Apple’s latest iPad Pro tablets. The devices went on sale last Wednesday, and early buyers quickly discovered something that flew under the radar in a lot of press reviews: you can expect to see many apps with black bars surrounding them, which detracts from the new “all-screen” (but definitely not edge-to-edge) design of these iPads. The issue is more pronounced on the 11-inch iPad Pro because it features a different screen aspect ratio than the 10.5 inch model it replaces. Very few apps are optimized for...

Google’s Gboard now guesses what GIFs and stickers you want to send

Google is now using AI to suggest relevant GIFs, emoji, and stickers you can put in your conversation if you’re using Gboard. As you’re typing, a GIF icon might appear on the top left corner of Gboard. By tapping on it, you’ll be able to pull up Google’s suggestions for you. It’s not as clever as it sounds, though. Google claims Gboard is using AI to scour thousands of emoji and stickers for the right ones, but it’s mainly going off of the keywords you use. So say you mention a birthday or a dance, Gboard would find the relevant...
