Google’s prototype AI translator translates your tone as well as your words

We all know that communication depends on more than just what you say. How you say it is often just as important. That’s why Google’s latest prototype AI translator doesn’t just translate the words coming out of your mouth, but also the tone and cadence of your voice. The system is called Translatotron, and Google’s researchers go into detail on how it works in a recent blog post. They don’t say that Translatotron will be coming to commercial products any time soon, but that will probably happen in time. As Google’s head of translation explained to The Verge earlier this...

Justice's antitrust chief sketches how he'll assess big tech

The U.S. Justice Department's antitrust chief suggested Tuesday he'll take a broad view of how competition is harmed when assessing whether big tech firms should be broken up. Assistant Attorney General Makan Delrahim also was clear in a speech in Israel that he is well aware that just two companies dominate digital advertising, though he did not name the two, Google and Facebook. Without indicating whether he plans to move against any particular company, he said factors to be considered in assessing whether a monopoly exists — meriting anti-trust action — go well beyond whether a company's dominance leads to...

Apple iPhone XR successor to have a 5% larger battery

The Apple iPhone XR was cheapest 2018 iPhone and yet it bested the XS and XS Max at a couple of things. One was the number of color options and the other was battery life. Now a new report has it that the iPhone XR 2 (or iPhone XIR, 11r - they all sound equally awkward, really) will have even better battery life. It says the iPhone XR successor will have a 3,110mAh battery - a 5% increase over the 2,942mAh of the iPhone XR. The report reveals that Chinese Amperex Technology Limited (ATL) has been granted the order for...

Foxconn is ready to move iPhone production out of China, if needed

The trade war between the United States and China could bring more pain to Apple with the US president threatening Beijing with imposing new tariffs on about $300 billion worth of Chinese goods, including Foxconn-built iPhones and iPads. The US already imposed tariffs on some of the accessories Apple sells, but those hardly have a significant impact on its bottom line. The iPhone is a whole different story of course and any extra tariffs will either result in a spike of the price for end users or a big hit in Apple's profit. In response to that a senior executive...

iMovie for iOS adds a green screen feature

The latest update for Apple’s iMovie for iOS gives the video-editing app a green screen feature, 80 new soundtracks, ClassKit support, and more. Plenty of other video-editing apps offer green screen functionality, but it’s nice to have the option available within iMovie. The feature lets you remove anything in the background that’s green or blue, and you can adjust the effect with a 4-point mask as well as its strength. To test this out, I took a video from my trip to Hawaii and added it as a green / blue screen over a clip of my beloved Popplio doll....

Huawei exec confirms goal of topping smartphone world put on hold

Huawei was aiming to surpass Samsung as the largest smartphone distributor by Q4 this year before the US added the Chinese company to its “Entity List” banning any US firm from trading with Huawei. And while the company has repeatedly expressed its belief that the turmoil won't have huge impact on its business long term its chief strategy officer Shao Yang admitted that it will have to delay its goal during a keynote held at CES Asia in Shanghai. We would have become the largest in the fourth quarter (of this year) but now we feel that this process may...

Firefox’s new logo has more fire, less fox

They warned us that it was coming, and now it’s here: Mozilla took the wraps off its new logo for the storied Firefox web browser today. But before you say “What did they do to that poor fox!” know that the logo you see above actually isn’t the browser logo — that’s the brand-new overarching logo for Mozilla’s whole family of Firefox products, with each component (including the browser) having its own logo, too. Here: See? Fox is alive and well... if a little ethereal. The logo also looks a little like a world on fire, which many of us...
