Facebook is losing two top executives after the company’s privacy pivot

Facebook is losing two of its top executives, Chris Cox and Chris Daniels, who served as the company’s chief product officer and the head of WhatsApp, respectively. The departures come just a week after Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced plans to reshape the company around private messaging apps and after a year of wide-scale privacy scandals. Cox has been with Facebook for more than a decade and currently oversees the company’s core suite of apps. The heads of all of Facebook’s most important teams — Instagram, WhatsApp, Messenger, and Facebook itself — all report to him. He’d been floated as...

Google takes a tiny step toward fixing AMP’s URL problem

When you click a link on your phone with a little lightning bolt next to it in Google search, you’re getting something in the AMP format. AMP stands for “Accelerated Mobile Pages,” and you’ve probably noticed that those pages load super quickly and usually look much simpler than regular webpages. You may have also noticed that the URL at the top of your browser started with “www.google.com/somethingorother” instead of with the webpage you thought you were visiting. Google is trying to fix that today by announcing support for something called “Signed Exchanges.” What it should mean is that when you...

The Nikola Wav is an electric watercraft with a 4K display and cruise control

Electric trucking company Nikola Motors just announced an all-electric sit-down personal watercraft called the Wav (pronounced “wave”).

Milton debuted the Wav alongside an all-electric off-roader and the company’s two flagship electric big rigs at an event in Arizona Tuesday night. “This watercraft defies the norm and creates a new standard,” Jordan Darling,...

Xiaomi Mi 9 review: cheap speed

Xiaomi’s flagship Mi series of smartphones is usually relatively unremarkable. Unlike the notch-busting Mi Mix line, the Mi phones don’t tend to have particularly interesting designs, and Xiaomi doesn’t push the prices as far down as it can with the Redmi range. The Mi phones are always just pretty good, pretty affordable phones. The Mi 9 is a little different. It doesn’t depart from the basic Mi formula of offering high-end specs in a mainstream design at a reasonable price. But more so than any other Mi series phone in the past, the ~$500 Mi 9 narrows the gap with...

Scientist’s 3D print heart in major medical breakthrough

From spare parts and guns, 3D printing is becoming a promising approach in engineering personalized tissues and organs in cases when regeneration of cells is difficult and replacement of damaged ones is expensive. Scientists at the Tel Aviv University achieved a breakthrough by 3D printing a heart using the patient’s own cells. For the first time, the scientists used fully personalised non-supplemented materials as bio-inks for 3D printing, the research paper explains. The bio-inks do not provoke an immune response, thereby minimising complications after transplantation. Scientists extracted fatty tissue from the patient and processed them to form diverse personalised bio-inks...
