          Comment on The Extraterrestrial Messages of Nikola Tesla by Brian Steere   
In 'The book Wizard, the Life and Times of Nikola Tesla', a biography by Marc J. Seifer, it is clearly shown that when Tesla was first 'listening in' to radio signals relating to natural phenomena, he picked up an 'intelligent' repeated ordered signal. Because he thought himself the very first, he was unaware and unable to take into account that Marconi was running trials with the British Navy - and that that was what he picked up. And so it is also noteworthy that the very first wireless transmissions were in a sense eavesdropped - and that two rivals were invisibly entangled in such a way. It was also shown how at that time it was believed and expected that there was life on other planets - especially Mars - by many learned and respected people. There are many interesting details in the book on Tesla's personality and the times and society in which he lived - and which he played such a major role in changing - often without due acknowledgement. Although there was a cartel of corporate investment that used him and refused him - there were also aspects to his character that invited or played into this. While Tesla was a forerunner and pioneer of wireless or 'at a distance' communications and forces - he was not consciously at ease with a psychic-emotional intimacy as a direct participant in such communications, so his belief in life 'out there' and the means to communicate and travel beyond Earth's plane was normal to his thinking, his thinking recoiled from the recognition if 'incoming' intelligence THROUGH the vehicles or instruments of our physicality - even though his mental and imaginative capacities far exceeded most anyone else known in terms of uncovering, designing and testing new technological instruments without recourse to paper and plans. And so in his unique way he was an example of an incoming intelligence to the era of scientific change and technological application - wherever one ascribes that inspiration to. Some of what he invented was extremely dangerous to our level of responsibility - and some was seen as threat to the revenue streams of corporate investment and cartel power. My sense is that such power froze the development of science ever since and so what we have is a corporate capture or scientism that operates not unlike the corrupt Vatican of the previous version of abusing truths for private gratification and gain. The desire to mythologize Tesla is evident as fitting facets of his story to one the teller WANTS to be true. IE The demonisation of Edison and a good v evil narrative as a subtext for a sense of being denied or deprived by 'Them' whoever 'They' are seen to be now. Personalized blame narratives are THE device by which false ideas are protected from exposure - and correction. Yet in a sense I indicate that an ET connection is implicit to the Field of our true mental capacity - but that ET does not mean an 'alien will' but rather that a false set of ideas has alienated us from Our Self and that the physical existence is one in which all else is seen as conflicting or oppositional polarities - within which we seem to have a limited choice of pathways between birth and death by which to develop abilities of manipulation, adaptation and identification as our experience of Existence in, or rather through, form. Rewakening to the Electric Universe is re-opening to a terrain in which ancient catastrophe imprinted trauma on our species and provided the framework for such a profound experience of isolation, vulnerability and the need to mask power as well as mask to hide from it. Your thought is a vibrational attunement to your unique focus within Infinite Idea - and yet for the most part - what we take to be our thought, operates as a blocking or jamming signal. The 'matrix' of a mask or personified sense of fragmentation passes of as 'waking conscious', but as Jesus said 'My Kingdom is not of this world' - for sin, fear and guilt operate 'mind-control' and not a true sovereignty of will. Science needs to serve and align under true will and not mask itself in trojan disguise of 'serving humanity' when really fitted to the same old private agenda of self-specialness and self-blindness of presuming to assert or align in power OVER the will.

          "Because if we get hit by a train, we're going to die and we're going to hell"   

Hey, gang

Jim Hill here. My apologies for JHM going dark for three days last week. But between my Mom going in for gall bladder surgery on Monday and my Dad winding up in the emergency room with heart palpitations on Friday (Not to mention that brownout in New Jersey as well as the 60 MPH windstorm in New Hampshire), everything that I had originally planned on posting on this site last week wound up being put on hold while we picked up the pieces around here.

Speaking of pieces ... One of the articles that unfortunately wound up getting delayed was a terrific Father's Day column that Ron Schneider wrote. Which -- even though it's a day late -- still offers lots of great advice about how a daddy & a daughter can make the most of their day at a Disney theme park.

So settle back now and enjoy Ron's latest literary effort. And with any amount of luck (More importantly, provided that Mother Nature behaves herself and/or no more Hills wind up in the hospital) JHM will be back on schedule tomorrow.

“Disneyland started with a father who wondered why couldn't there be something built, some place where the parents and the children could have fun together” – Walt Disney
 

Through decades of Disneyland visits, first as a fan then as a cast member, no single trip stands out for me like taking my daughter Katie to the park when she was six. She had visited dozens of times with her mother to watch me perform at the Golden Horseshoe. She'd sit in the box onstage and clap and laugh and I'd bounce my 'teeth' off her head during the 'Pecos Bill' number. Katie had even celebrated her first birthday backstage with the Golden Horseshoe cast.

But from the time I moved away to Florida until a visit to California when she was six, she had never been to a Magic Kingdom. Thus, when the two of us set out for two whole days at Disneyland, she had no memory of the place and no idea what to expect. Driving out on the Antelope Freeway Katie spies a huge water slide by the side of the road. “Oh, Daddy, can we go there?” 

I have to laugh. “You don't understand, darling. Disneyland is better than that. It's better than anything.” My plan is to spend the first day in Fantasyland and Tomorrowland; then take her straight into Adventureland and Frontierland the next day and blow her little mind.

Once inside Fantasyland I take her straight to my childhood favorite, Peter Pan's Flight. As we step up to the load area, Katie asks me, “Daddy, what happens in here?”


Copyright Disney. All Rights Reserved

What can I tell her? I don't want her to be nervous, I don't want to spoil anything. I decide to try this: “Honey, I have no idea.” And that's what I do for the next two days. As a result, every attraction is a voyage of discovery that we make together. 

Over at my favorite spot, Snow White's Wishing Well, we run into Captain Hook and Mr. Smee. Since there are no other kids around (which should give you an idea of how long ago this was) the pirates play with us for five minutes, teaching Katie to curtsy and dance the minuet. As we're walking away, heading down Main Street to grab some curb for the three o'clock parade, she asks me, “Daddy, where do Mickey and Minnie go when Disneyland closes?” I tell her they go home. 

“No, they don't. The people go home. The costumes stay here.” Well, I'm impressed – only 6 years old and she already knows Company Policy. We walk in silence for another minute, then I hear a gasp of recognition. With an amazed look on her face she tells me, “You play the part!” Up to now Katie's known that I was somehow connected to Dreamfinder, but this is the moment she realizes what Daddy does for a buck.

This was back when someone thought Disneyland needed to add seasonal themes to be entertaining, like "Circus Fantasy" or "Blast to the Past." The afternoon parade has a '50s theme, featuring a troupe of celebrity look-alikes of the period: Superman, the Lone Ranger & Tonto, bogus Mouseketeers. We're enjoying the show when Katie spots Lucy & Ricky Ricardo. She jumps up from the curb and runs into the street to throw her arms around Lucy's legs in a happy hug. Lucy looks at her partner and whines, “Ricky, is this one of your girlfriends?” Ricky Ricardo walks my daughter back to me on the curb; it took her the rest of the day to get over that.

The next day Katie gets to steer the Mark Twain and has her first cotton candy (complete with the attendant stomach ache). The only low point for me is halfway through the Enchanted Tiki Room (a personal favorite) when she asks, “Daddy, when is this going to be over?” I take the hint and we sneak out the back door.

We have a tense moment while waiting to board Star Tours. “Daddy, I'm scared.” I explain that we are going on an imaginary trip to outer space; that it will feel real, but it's not. Thus reassured, Katie hops aboard our Star Speeder and loves the whole trip.

Katie also gets nervous while exploring Injun Joe's Cave, so I take her hand and let her set the pace. When she spots daylight, she lets go my hand and runs for the exit. As soon as she's outside, she turns to me with a smile and says, “Let's go again!” (She says this same thing after every ride.)

I often advise new parents to hold off taking their kids to Disneyland as long as possible. I've found that children who grow up riding Pirates of the Caribbean over and over often come to think of it as just a boat ride with waterfalls. Space Mountain becomes just a roller coaster without ever being a rocket trip into space. By waiting until my little girl was old enough to understand – yet young enough to believe -- I had set us both up for an amazing experience.

My wish for every father is to make this same 'voyage of discovery' with your child. The world has enough commonplace thrills in it; they can be found at the side of any freeway in America. There are far too few flights of fancy... and these moments when our children want us to tag along are fleeting.

I've saved the best for last. Here is my all-time favorite memory of Disneyland:

We are approaching the load area for Mr. Toad's Wild Ride when Katie spies the cars. “Oh, Daddy, can I drive?”

“I don't know. You've never driven before. You're kinda young... “

“Oh, PLEASE!!”

I give it some thought. “Tell you what. You can drive on two conditions. You have to go exactly where I tell you to go – “

“I will. I promise.”

“And don't get us hit by a train.”

“I won't!”

“Because if we get hit by a train, we're going to die and we're going to hell.”

“I won't, I'll be careful!”

So we get in the car and it pulls forward and it looks like we should turn left and leave the building. I tell Katie, “Turn left.” She turns the wheel left and the car goes right and busts through a wall. I scream at her, “WHAT ARE YOU DOING?! LOOK OUT FOR THE FIREPLACE!!” And so it goes through the whole ride.

I grab the wheel and we're both trying to steer and I'm screaming like a frightened kid while she's laughing so hard she can't catch her breath. And wouldn't you know it? She drives us right into a tunnel and a head-on collision with a train. Women drivers.

As we're driving through Disney's vision of Cartoon Hell with demons all around, I ask my daughter, “Didn't I tell you NOT to get us hit by a train?!” She's still laughing as we stagger off to our next adventure.

Isn't that a great bit of fatherly advice? Now here's another piece of advice ... If you liked today's column, make plans now to pick up a copy of Ron Schneider's memoirs, "Themes, Dreams & Schemes: 40 Years Behind a Nametag." Which should be on store shelves sometime in late 2008 / early 2009.

Resultado de imagen para carros eléctricos

Cada vez son más los fabricantes que se unen a la tecnología de los carros que funcionan con baterías recargables pues ven en ellos una solución práctica de movilidad, amigable con el ambiente y con un gran potencial de ahorro económico para los ciudadanos.

Su aporte al medio ambiente es una de las grandes ventajas y esto se debe a que no requieren combustible fósil y por lo tanto no generan un alto impacto ambiental. Además, resulta mucho más barato recargar un auto eléctrico que llenar con gasolina uno tradicional.

Es por esto que el gasto inicial que supone la compra de este tipo de vehículos se amortiza en varios años gracias al ahorro en combustible, según afirma Twenergy.

Estas son algunas de las muchas ventajas que tienen estos carros, así que si tiene pensado cambiar el suyo o comprar uno, esta es considerada una de las mejores opciones en movilidad.

Veamos qué es lo más sorprendente de estos carros: 

1. Su mantenimiento cuesta un 50 % menos que el de un carro convencional.

2. Reducen entre el 50 % y el 80 % de las emisiones de gases con efecto invernadero.

3. Las baterías de un vehículo eléctrico pueden durar hasta 10 años.

4. Un carro eléctrico tiene una eficiencia del 60% frente al 20% de los motores convencionales.


5. El motor eléctrico es totalmente silencioso y no sufre vibraciones, lo que ayuda a reducir la contaminación auditiva.


6. Estos carros no necesitan aceite de motor, tienen menos filtros y no hay que sustituir ni revisar correas o embragues.


7. En algunos países se han empezado a instalar centros de recarga gratuita a base de paneles solares.


8. Menor posibilidad de averías mecánicas, así como menor desgaste general de los neumáticos y componentes del sistema de frenado.


9. El ahorro en costos de gasolina es considerable. La electricidad es más accesible que la gasolina, se pueden recorrer muchos kilómetros por menos plata.


10. La autonomía del motor de un carro eléctrico puede ser hasta de 300 km según el modelo de acuerdo con el portal AutoBild.

          The electric car resurrection   
The electric car has been back for awhile, but not in a form for mere mortals. I don't think most mortals could handle 0-60 in 4 seconds anyway.
However, it looks like mortals may get their shot. 40 miles on a charge (with a gasoline backup) means I could use it for traveling to/from work everyday without burning any gasoline. Let's see if GM can deliver and make it affordable to the middle class.





          Δίπλωμα ευρεσιτεχνίας του Tesla για τον 1ο στον κόσμο «ιπτάμενο δίσκο»   
Νίκολα Τέσλα - ο άνθρωπος ο οποίος, όπως πολλοί πιστεύουν, σχεδόν θαμμένος στην ξεχασμένη ιστορία μέχρι την πρόσφατη αύξηση του ενδιαφέροντος κατά τη διάρκεια των τελευταίων δεκαετιών. εφευρέσεις του Νίκολα Τέσλα και τα τεχνολογικά του επιτεύγματα είναι τόσο απίστευτα προηγμένα,
πολλοί νιώθουν αμηχανία από αυτό που εφευρέθηκε πάνω από 120 χρόνια πριν, που μόλις τώρα αυτή η τεχνολογία έρχεται στη δημοσιότητα

Οι φήμες που περιβάλλουν τον άνθρωπο αυτόν είναι τόσο συναρπαστικές όσο και τα γεγονότα - ιστορίες και περίεργες ψυχικές ικανότητες όλων γύρω από το μύθο που συνθέτουν την εικόνα που πολλοί έχουν για τον Νίκολα Τέσλα στη σημερινή εποχή ... και, μερικές φορές, ότι είναι για καλό λόγο.

Πρόσφατα,Η Rise Earth έχει αναφερθεί σε μια πολύ ενδιαφέρουσα πατέντα που υπέβαλε ΟTesla, μαζί με τον εικαστικό σχεδιασμό - με τίτλο «Πρώτος Ιπτάμενος Δίσκος του κόσμου» - αυτή η εικόνα μοιάζει ακριβώς όπως ένα UFO που θα δείτε στην ταινία του Steven Spielberg - το πιο παράξενο μέρος ; Το δίπλωμα ευρεσιτεχνίας κατατέθηκε πριν από 100 χρόνια.

Nikola Tesla θεωρείται ένα από τους πιο καινοτόμους και μυστηριώδεις ανθρώπους που έζησαν ποτέ.

Μήπως στην πραγματικότητα είχε επαφή με εξωγήινους, όπως ο ίδιος δημόσια διακήρυξε; Είναι ένας από τους πιο καταπληκτικούς εφευρέτες που έχει γνωρίσει η ανθρωπότητα ,με τις γνώσεις και τις ιδέες του, πήγε μακριά και πέρα ​​από αυτό που ήταν γνωστό, Ο Τέσλα ήταν μια ιδιοφυΐα, και τις εφευρέσεις και τις ιδέες του δεν είχαν όρια.

Οι μέθοδοι που χρησιμοποιούνται στο σχεδιασμό του ιπτάμενου δίσκου σύμφωνα με τις περιγραφές των όσων υποστήριξαν ότι έχουν δει ένα από το UFO μέσα: Είχε ένα δισκοειδής πυκνωτή με επαρκές μέγεθος ώστε να παρέχει αρκετή ώθηση για να πετάξει, ενώ άλλοι μικροί πυκνωτές να ελέγχουν την κατεύθυνση του, είχε επίσης ένα γυροσκοπικό σύστημα σταθεροποίησης και ηλεκτρικό έλεγχο «κίνησης».

Βασικά είναι ένα απίστευτα καλά σχεδιασμένο αεροσκάφος, κάτι που θα μπορούσαμε να καταφέρουμε να οικοδομήσουμε σήμερα. Ή έχουμε ήδη κατασκευαστεί; Τι συνέβη με την εφεύρεση αυτή; Γιατί δεν πετούν στο διάστημα με την απίστευτη εφεύρεση του Tesla;

Ενώ χορηγήθηκε το δίπλωμα ευρεσιτεχνίας, το UFO ή μάλλον ονομάζεται IFO ​​όπως είχε προσδιοριστεί από την ακόρεστη φαντασία του Tesla, είχε ένα μειονέκτημα: επειδή το αεροσκάφος δεν περιλάμβανε μια πηγή ενέργειας της δικής του, έπρεπε να ενεργοποιηθεί από τους πύργους του με ασύρματη μετάδοση, πηγές του Tesla της «ελεύθερης ενέργειας».

Η έλλειψη χρηματοδότησης οδήγησε στην εγκατάλειψη της ανάπτυξης των πύργων, και έτσι, του Tesla το UFO ή μάλλον IFO δεν έγινε ποτέ. Αλλά κρατήστε το Ποτέ;

Στην πραγματικότητα δεν είναι τόσο σίγουροι από την Μυστική Υπηρεσία των ΗΠΑ κατασχέθηκαν όλα τα διπλώματα ευρεσιτεχνίας που ανήκουν στον Tesla μετά το θάνατό του «για λόγους εθνικής ασφάλειας.»

Τώρα, αν του Τέσλα οι ιδέες ήταν παρ άφρων και κάποιες είχαν χαρακτηριστεί, από την Μυστική Υπηρεσία Ηνωμένων Πολιτειών να αδράξουν τις πατέντες για λόγους εθνικής ασφάλειας; Χμμμ μας αφήνει να σκεφτούμε για ένα λεπτό.

Οι ιδέες του μεγάλου Nikola Tesla είναι απίστευτες και ακόμα καλύτερα, πολύ μπροστά από την εποχή του, πολλές από τις εφευρέσεις του, με σκοπό την προώθηση της παγκόσμιας ειρήνης μέσω της δωρεάν πρόσβασης στην ενέργεια, αλλά οι κυβερνήσεις και οι χρηματοδότες του χρόνου, δεν ακολούθησαν την πρόοδο του μυαλού του Tesla.

Χρόνια αργότερα, πρωτοποριακά μοντέλα των τεχνολογικών έργων του χρησιμοποιήθηκαν από τους Ναζί (όχι με τον τρόπο που είχε φανταστεί), και τώρα πολλά από τα έργα του βρίσκονται στην κατοχή των μυστικών υπηρεσιών, μακριά από τα μάτια του κοινού.

ll mondo dei misteri affascina l'umanità da sempre. La sua concezione, nel corso dei secoli, ha subito numerosi e continui mutamenti.

Dalla preistoria ad oggi, molti studiosi e ricercatori si sono avvicendati nel tentare di svelare i segreti, i misteri e gli enigmi che, dall'alba dei tempi, avvolgono la storia dell'uomo sulla Terra, talvolta con successo, talvolta senza giungere a nulla, ma costantemente animati da un forte spirito di ricerca.

Con questa pubblicazione l'autore si spinge ad analizzare la ricerca nel mistero dagli albori della civiltà fino ai giorni nostri, in un percorso di evoluzione e di conoscenza attraverso le storie di ricercatori "di confine", di appassionati, di impostori, di artisti e di veri e propri geni: dagli Egiziani all'inquisizione, da Tesla a Sitchin, dalla visione elitaria del mistero delle antiche civiltà al simbolismo medievale, dalle ricerche di Leonardo e Galileo agli esperimenti di Girolamo Segato e di Erasmo Darwin, dalla nascita dello spiritismo e dell'ufologia alle pubblicazioni di Robert Bauval e Mario Pincherle fino all'arrivo della New Age, di Dan Brown e della profezia Maya del 2012.

Un percorso che ci fa comprendere come spesso non occorrano grandi sforzi per trovare nuovi indizi che forniscano la risoluzione di un mistero. Si può semplicemente provare, infatti, a percorrere il tempo a ritroso, fino a raggiungere l'origine dell'enigma, per comprendere, così, in che modo si sia evoluto, quasi seguendo le parole di Marcel Proust "Un vero viaggio di scoperta non consiste nello scoprire nuove terre ma nell'avere nuovi occhi".

          What a great show...   
I'm in that moment of time where I'm so happy and so sad. Looking forward to a concert is one of the greatest feelings in the world to me. Being at the show IS the greatest feeling in the world. Then...it's over and I feel sad. The Def Leppard, Poison, Tesla concert at The Save Mart Center this past Monday night was pure joy to me. I love all 3 bands and was able to sing along with every song from every band. There was no way anyone could wipe the smile off of my face and the excitment and pure happiness that overcomes me from being at a rock concert. These are the moments I live for. It's highs and lows because now I'm sad that it's over. The good news? It's easily remedied with tickets to another show so I have something to look forward to again. HA!
          英伟达郑义陶:AI无处不在 深度学习是AI最重要的部分   

【TechWeb报道】6月21日消息,作为云计算行业的年度盛会,2017腾讯“云+未来”峰会今日正式在深圳会展中心拉开帷幕。在今日上午的主峰会上,英伟达公司亚太地区销售与营销副总裁郑义陶发表了题为“Powering The AI Revolution”的主题演讲。

830A6620

郑义陶首先介绍了英伟达在过去5年的演变。郑义陶表示,英伟达是从一个半导体公司经过了GPU、可视化,我们转型到一个平台、服务软件公司,最后到一个AI的公司,英伟达有超过1万名工作人员,80%是技术人员,是在软件、数据方面的科学家,英伟达很幸运在时间上和机会上都是发生在同一个时间,就是在正确的时间做了正确的事情。大数据加上GPU,大规模并行计算,使得英伟达变成世界领先的AI公司。

英伟达的GPU产品,郑义陶介绍说,过去的40年,电脑行业都是按照摩尔定律的规律发展的,但是经过GPU突破性的发展,摩尔定律已经不复存在。在2006年,英伟达的CUDA和TESLA的平台开创了一个全新的时代,GPU通过CUDA可以帮助科学家解决相关领域各种大数据的问题。再到今天的计算,所有这些应用是并行计算为基础。

郑义陶提到,AI无处不在,在手机、设备,在每一个有技术的公司都有AI。苹果、三星、微软的设备都有自己的AI功能,这些功能可以帮助客户回答很多基本的问题。另外各个行业都开始用AI,在短短的两年,AI公司的数量已经增长了10倍,AI在互联网服务、医学、金融、汽车等等领域都有广泛的应用。

在快速发展的时代,科技的进步日新月异,可以看到一些新企业,他们都有AI的需求,他们把AI作为他们最基本的需求。郑义陶透露,现在大概85%的客户服务都是用AI,或者是用语音的翻译帮助客户进行服务。这个行业的投资额接近500亿美金,但是我个人相信这个投资要远远超过这个数目。有20%的公司已经开始训练他们的员工,并开始用大数据把自己变成一个数据科学家。

深度学习这个模式是AI技术最重要的一部分,在GPU深度学习模式方面,郑义陶介绍了英伟达提供的两个新方式:一个是训练,一个是推理。郑义陶说:“我们有一个神经网络,用大数据去训练这个网络,然后去推理到数据中心或者是设备,通过训练和推理之后,再重复训练和推理,使这个网络越来越聪明,越来越知道怎么分析大数据。”

大数据分析方面,郑义陶站在英伟达的服务和产品层面,提供的三个思路:第一是英伟达的TESLA平台,TESLA平台在数据中心。第二个是在英伟达的DGX-1系统,它是给一些数据科学家,或者给一些很快熟悉人工学习的概念,把所有的硬件、所有的软件、所有的工具全部包装在一个系统里面。第三是无人驾驶方面,并帮助腾讯把中国的高清地图做好。

郑义陶还列举了英伟达在安防方面的应用子,郑义陶说,通过AI可以大大提高安防的效率,但是所有的AI都需要大量的运行计算、人力支撑。在2020年,英伟达估计会有接近10亿个摄像头应用在安防领域,每一秒大概有300亿次的推理计算,有这么大量的推理计算,如果要达到这个能力,可能需要1000万片英伟达P40的处理器。

AI无处不在,从GPU到服务器,从框架的服务到合作伙伴的需求,英伟达已经达到良好的成绩。深度学习是AI技术最重要的一部分,英伟达和腾讯在努力改变整个行业用AI去改善人类的生活。“我们不仅仅需要好的GPU,我们也需要英伟达和在座的每一个合作伙伴携手共同打造AI的美好明天。”郑义陶说到。(唐文)

          Limited Lanes Of Success   

Today on the 5: A recent fatal accident involving a Tesla Model S brought into sharper focus what I think will limit the success of autonomous vehicles.

          Un análisis de datos históricos acerca de Bitcoin, Ethereum y otras 1.200 criptodivisas   

Ethereum bitcoin

Sarah Pan ha hecho un estupendo análisis del estado actual de la «fiebre del oro» de las criptodivisas en un artículo en el que ha extraído de diversas bases de datos todos los historiales disposibles y los ha cotejado con los hechos más relevantes durante los últimos años en tan complejo sector.

El texto se puede leer completo en el blog de Timescale, una herramienta SQL especialmente pensada para series históricas de datos: Analyzing Ethereum, Bitcoin, and 1200+ other Cryptocurrencies using PostgreSQL. Aunque es un tanto farragoso esto sería lo más destacable, junto con algunos otros enlaces y referencias que he encontrado por ahí:

  • La fiebre del oro es bastante palpable, con hechos como que nace más de una nueva criptodivisa casi cada día (en las llamadas ICO, initial coin offering, algo en cierto modo equivalente a las «salidas a bolsa» u OPV, ofertas públicas de venta).
  • Tan claro es el boom que efectivamente quien hubiera invertido ‑y guardado pacientemente– 100 dólares en Bitcoin hace 7 años (2010) tendría unos 5 millones de dólares a día de hoy.
  • Las criptodivisas conforman un mercado global, pero si en Bitcoin se invertía casi únicamente en dólares hasta 2014 pronto los yuanes chinos tomaron la delantera (probablemente debido a su devaluación). En 2017 el Banco Popular de China reforzó la regulación al respecto y entonces fue Japón quien pasó a liderar el volumen de transacciones, por encima tanto de China como de los Estados Unidos. (En Japón el Bitcoin se considera una «divisa legal»).
  • Una escalada similar se ha visto en Ethereum, la segunda criptodivisa por volumen que ha sufrido el mismo efecto explosivo pero en menos tiempo: en su primer año ya superaba a Bitcoin en crecimiento (530%) y el año pasado se apuntó otro 200%.

Cripto Marketcap

  • El mercado se ha transformado en cierto modo de un mundo para inversores en criptodivisas en también una oportunidad para creadores de nuevas criptodivisas. Las más de 1.200 ya existentes son un ejemplo claro, así como la semana del 25 de mayo en la que aparecieron 300 nuevas criptodivisas en menos de siete días.
  • En la larga cola de las criptodivisas [gráfico] sigue liderando Bitcoin (BTC) seguida por Ethereum (ETH) y a continuación un grupo más amplio con Litecoin (LTC), Ripple (XRP) y Ethereum Classic (ETC). Litecoin es casi idéntica a Bitcoin; algunas de las otras tienen usos específicos y ciertas mejoras y diferencias técnicas (como Ripple), pero algunas como Ethereum podrían acabar complementando o reemplazando prácticamente a Bitcoin con el paso tiempo.
  • A día de hoy es relativamente fácil comprar y vender bitcoins y también ethereum y otras criptodivisas; basta hacerlo a cambio de dólares o euros – al menos para volúmenes razonables. Digamos que tiene la misma dificultad –más o menos– que si decidieras comprar monedas de oro o acciones de Tesla, Inc.: disponer del dinero, una cuenta de banco, acudir a un mercado probablemente extranjero en el que comprar y vender, identificarse de forma fiable, hacer las transacciones, pagar comisiones, declarar los importes por aquello de los impuestos… Pero no son operaciones imposibles.
  • Bitcoin vs. Ethereum. En muchos sitios se habla de esta relación amor-odio que parte de una misma base (la tecnología blockchain) y se hace el –probablemente inapropiado– símil entre lo que sucedió con el VHS y el Betamax, o entre el VHS y los DVD… Pero a día de no está del todo claro qué podría suceder. Un buen artículo al respecto: Ethereum: The not-Bitcoin cryptocurrency en Mashable.

28 июня 1960 года родился российский певец с четырехоктавным звуковым диапазоном Валерий Панков. В его исполнении звучали музыкальные вступления и песни большинства диснеевских мультфильмов в 1990-е.

Валерий учился в музыкальной школе. Пел в школьных концертах. На одном из них его заметили студенты МИФИ и пригласили в институтский ансамбль. По окончании школы поступил в МАИ. Летом подрабатывал пионервожатым в загородных лагерях. Пел в любительских ВИА. После института переехал в Петрозаводск, где устроился работать в Карельскую филармонию.

Вернулся в Москву и начал заниматься в студии «Рекорд» Юрия Чернавского, которая была известна как «фабрика юных талантов». Вскоре Валерий стал петь в группе «Последний шанс». Освоил такие музыкальные инструменты, как бас-балалайка, гитара, колокольчики. Благодаря чревовещательнице Раисе Виноградовой освоил мастерство звукоподражания. Панков обладает уникальной способностью одновременно воспроизводить голосом мелодию в сопровождении звучания ритм-секции. Выступал на эстраде с номером «Воображаемый фестиваль», в котором пел голосами Робертино ЛореттиПола МаккартниЛуи Армстронга, Криса Нормана, Сьюзи КватроЧитать дальше...

28 июня 1966 года родилась Наталья Штурм – российская певица. Окончила литературно-театральную школу и поступила на подготовительное отделение Московской государственной консерватории по классу вокала. Затем закончила музыкальное училище им. Октябрьской Революции и стала членом труппы Камерного еврейского музыкального театра, параллельно выступая в спектакле «Трехгрошовая опера» театра-студии «Третье направление».

В 1989 году Наталья Штурм поступила в Государственный народный ансамбль под управлением В. Назарова. В 1990 окончила Московский государственный институт культуры. В 1991 на Всероссийском конкурсе «Шоу – Королева» Наталья завоевала первое место и приз зрительских симпатий. Это было ее первое сольное выступление. После этого некоторое время была солисткой ансамбля еврейской песни «Мицва».

В сентябре 1993 в результате знакомства с Александром Новиковым началось их творческое сотрудничество. Он написал материал для двух альбомов Натальи Штурм и продюсировал их. В мае 1997 Наталью пригласили в телесериал «Золотой дворец». Читать дальше...

          Mókás levelekkel is találkozott már A konyhafőnök döntőse   

Sass Dani tavaly A konyhafőnök című műsorban tűnt fel, közel egy év alatt húszezer követője lett a Facebookon - az Internet Hungary konferencián arról mesélt, hogy kezdetben "szemetesládaként" gondolt a rajongói oldalára, csak azért hozta létre, hogy elválassza a nézői leveket a privát oldalától.

A döntő napján közzétett egy posztot, melyben gratulált az őt legyőző Orbán Áginak, ez pedig olyan népszerűséget hozott, amire nem számított: hirtelen megduplázódott a követők száma. Úgy érezte, felel azért a hatezer emberért, aki kíváncsi rá, így előzetes terveivel ellentétben nem törölte az oldalt a műsor végét követően.

Az oldalon gasztronómiáról és sportoló szóló posztokat tesz közzé, gyakran beszélgetésekbe is belemegy, privát üzenetben pedig elég mókás dolgokkal is találkozott már, mint mondta.

Nem tudja, meddig lesz meg a közönsége: tisztában van azzal, hogy mivel most indult a főzőműsor negyedik szériája, új karaktereket láthatnak és követhetnek a nézők. Míg az ő szériájából csak hárman indítottak saját profilt, a mostaniak közül már öten megtalálhatók a Facebookon, többen tőle kértek segítséget, hogy műköstessék jól az oldalukat.

"A hitelességem nem hagytam soha csorbítani, csak olyan tartalmakat teszik ki, amit valóban szeretek. Tudom, hogy nagyon beteg dolog, de a múltkor már futás közen azon gondolkodtam, hogy milyen szöveggel tegyem ki, hogy 28 kilométert futottam" - mesélte.

          THE PAYMENTS INDUSTRY EXPLAINED: The Trends Creating New Winners And Losers In The Card-Processing Ecosystem   

bii payments ecosystemUSETHIS

This is a preview of a research report from BI Intelligence, Business Insider's premium research service. To learn more about BI Intelligence, click here.

The way we pay is changing dramatically. For example, people are beginning to use their smartphones for every kind of formal and informal transaction — to shop at stores, buy songs online, and even split their rent.

At the heart of these changes in how we pay are thousands of companies competing and collaborating to facilitate transactions.

To understand why the payments industry has faced so much disruption in such a short time, there's just one key thing to understand: Payments is about transferring information from one party to another, and nearly every stakeholder in the industry benefits when that process runs on digital rails.

But payments is also an extremely complex industry that few fully understand.

In BI Intelligence's 2016 Payments Ecosystem report, we make it simple, explaining how it works, who the key players are, and where it's headed.

In this latest edition of the report, BI Intelligence drills even further into the industry to explain how a broad range of transactions are processed, including prepaid and store cards, as well as revealing which types of companies are in the best and worst position to capitalize on the latest industry trends.

Here are some key takeaways from the report:

  • 2016 will be a watershed year for the payments industry. Payments companies are improving security, expanding their mobile offerings, and building commerce capabilities that will give consumers a more compelling reason to make purchases using digital devices.
  • Payments is an extremely complex industry. To understand the next big digital opportunity lies, it's critical to understand how the traditional credit- and debit-processing chain works and what roles acquirers, processors, issuing banks, card networks, independent sales organizations, gateways, and software and hardware providers play.
  • Alternative technologies could disrupt the processing ecosystem. Devices ranging from refrigerators to smartwatches now feature payment capabilities, which will spur changes in consumer payment behaviors. Likewise, blockchain technology, the protocol that underlies Bitcoin, could one day change how consumer card payments are verified.

In full, the report:

  • Uncovers the key themes and trends affecting the payments industry in 2016 and beyond.
  • Gives a detailed description of the stakeholders involved in a payment transaction, along with hardware and software providers.
  • Offers diagrams and infographics explaining how card transactions are processed and which players are involved in each step.
  • Provides charts on our latest forecasts, key company growth, survey results, and more.
  • Analyzes the alternative technologies, including blockchain, which could further disrupt the ecosystem.

The choice is yours. But however you decide to acquire this report, you’ve given yourself a powerful advantage in your understanding of the payments ecosystem.

          Карта электрозаправок в Москве и России   

Электрозаправки в Москве стали появляться все чаще и чаще. А значит, спрос растет. Эффективность, экологичность и практичность электромобилей оценили не только в Москве и Санкт-Петербурге. Сеть электрозаправок растет по всей России. Сочи, Екатеринбург… Ежегодно добавляется по несколько городов, и карта электрозаправок расширяется. Карта электрозаправок в России На карте расположены актуальные электрозаправки, где можно зарядить электромобиль. Большинство из них имеют подробное описание. Также можно узнать, где можно зарядить электрокар бесплатно (в Москве, например) или сколько будет стоить зарядка (данную информацию можно узнать в подробном описании заправки, на данный момент она доступна не везде). Стоимость электрозаправки варьируется от 4 до 8р/кВт-ч. На данный момент официальных станций Tesla Supercharger в России не существует, но не исключено, что лет через 5 они появятся в нашей стране. Напомним, что можно недорого зарядить электромобиль дома, если есть необходимое оборудование. Наполнение карты Сохранять актуальность данной карты будет гораздо опперативнее, если наши читатели, а также владельцы электрозаправок будут делиться информацией о местоположении новых точек, где можно заправить электрокар. Для этого мы создали форму обратной связи, заполнив которую, вы сможете помочь проекту создать актуальную сеть электрозаправок. Форма по добавлению/удалению электрозаправки. UPD.24.08.16 добавлена электрозаправка — Хабаровск , ул. Гамарника,64. Спасибо нашему читателю Артуру. UPD.13.09.16 добавлена электрозаправка — г. Москва, МКАД 71 км, вл. 9, внешняя сторона. Анастасия — респект! UPD.08.10.16 добавлена электрозаправка — г. Санкт-Петербург, улица Гидротехников, 5.Бесплатная заправка на территории Политехнического университета, работает от солнечных панелей (и от сети, если солнца мало). Иван, благодарим за информацию! UPD.08.10.16 новая точка на карте электрозаправок России — г. Казань, Петербургская, 52 (Заправка на территории парковки IT парка), спасибо за инфу Стасу.

          Где зарядить электрокар в России. Станции для зарядки   

Медленно но верно в нашу страну приходит новая эпоха электрокаров. Автогиганты начинают предлагать более бюджетные варианты электромобилей, да и рынок б/у авто с батареями начинает пополняться, что делает данный вид транспорта более доступным. Инфраструктура конечно не такая развитая как в США или Канаде, но все же. Многие владельцы электромобилей в России уже задались вопросом: где зарядить электрокар? Если вдруг не успел зарядить батарею дома, а ехать нужно за несколько сот километров, что делать? Где зарядить? Карта электрозаправок в Москве и России Хотим представить вам список официально заявленных станций для зарядки электрокаров.

          Tesla Motors расширяет сеть электрозаправок в Европе   

2014 год для Tesla Motors будет ответственным в плане активного развития на европейском рынке электрокаров. Кроме того, что компания планирует в разы увеличить поставки электрокаров Tesla Model S и превзойти продажи в Северной Америке, «теслеры» планируют во всю взяться за активное развитие сетей электрозаправок для автомобилей Tesla. Планы глобальные. Такими темпами Tesla Motors и на российский рынок выйти не долго… Автосалон в Женеве стал полем активной деятельности для многих автоконцернов.  Tesla Motors внесла в мероприятие и свою лепту, представив миру несколько серьезных заявлений. Вот одно из них: Европа скоро получит развитую сеть электрозаправок, специализированных магазинов по продаже аксессуаров и прочего оборудования компании Tesla, а также больше сервисных центров, занимающихся ремонтом и обслуживанием электрокаров из Калифорнии. Компания планирует оснастить Европу более быстрыми и удобными станциями электрозарядки аккумуляторных батарей Tesla, что в разы упростит эксплуатацию электромобилей на континенте. «Количество электрозаправок в Европе будет рости достаточно быстро, так что, к концу года, мы ожидаем, что вы будите иметь возможность путешествовать практически в любую точку Европы, используя только нашу сеть электрозаправок» — заявил генеральный директор Элон Маск. Также, компания готовится открыть более 30 новых специализированных сервисных центров и магазинов. Таким образом, великая Tesla Motors потихоньку подбирается к границам России. Даже если в ближайшем будущем у Tesla Motors нет целей выйти на российский рынок, данная тенденция может способствовать более легкой покупке электромобиля, ведь сейчас купить Tesla Model S в России довольно проблематично.

          Uber self-driving Volvos use Nvidia Tegra   
Uber self-driving Volvos use Nvidia Tegra


Incredibly important win

Back in January,  Nvidia  revealed that it had a two Parker SoCs on a board that it calls Drive PX 2 and that the Volvo XC90 will be the first car to use it. A few days back, Uber revealed that customers in down town Pittsburg will be able to use Volvo XC90 cars for their Uber rides. 

The important thing to mention is that Nvidia technology is inside as the Volvo XC90 is using DRIVE PX 2 as the heart of the self-driving vehicle. Tesla which was seen as a leader in the self-driving arena was using Mobileye and it plans to end this relationship as soon as it can, due to a death. Most cars today including expensive BMWs which have the highway autopilot feature use Mobileye.

Nvidia Drive PX 2 is much more powerful as it  has two  Parker CPUs and two 256-core Pascal based Cuda cores and it can deliver 24 trillion deep learning operations per second to run the most complex inference algorithms. If that is not re-assuring enough, the Drive PX 2 system has three teraflops of performance for  deep learning. In case you don’t speak geek language, Fudzilla spent a lot of time investigating technologies crucial to self-driving including object detection, Lidar, RADAR, ultra-sonic sensors and all in all, self-driving cars are on their way to be safer than humans.

Uber is a smart business and it wants to get rid of the most expensive part of its transportation business model, a human driver. This won’t happen overnight as the Pittsburg trials will require all Volvo cars to have a person in the driver seat that will sit there “just in case”. The car will drive itself, but the person in the driver's seat will be able to take control at any given moment.

Nvidia and Volvo expect that self-driving cars should hit the streets by 2020 while Mobileye was targeting 2021. Both of these dates are closer than most of you think, and it will make everything safer. Most daily commuters spend an awful lot of time on their phones, not paying attention, and the self-driving car will watch the street all the time, refreshing information in milliseconds and being able to react much faster than any human.

Volvo said that combined with Uber, both companies spent some $300 million on a Volvo based self-driving Uber car. Volvo will make the car and Uber will buy it.

Håkan Samuelsson, president and chief executive of Volvo Cars, said:

“Volvo is a world leader in the development of active safety and autonomous drive technology and possesses an unrivaled safety credibility. We are very proud to be the partner of choice for Uber, one of the world’s leading technology companies. This alliance places Volvo at the heart of the current technological revolution in the automotive industry.”

It looks like that Uber, Volvo and Nvidia will profit, as essentially this is Nvidia’s biggest win to data, and the self-driving powered by the Nvidia Drive PX 2 will happen much sooner than anyone expected. The first ride will mark the day when Nvidia finally stops being a GPU-graphics cards company. The change of Tegra strategy we mentioned back in 2014 is finally paying off. 


          Nvidia Pascal bandwidth is min 800GB/s   



4000GFLOPS single, 12000GFLOPS double precision

Stacked RAM is the next big thing. It will enable much faster communication between the chip and the memory and with the current 384-bit design such we saw on Kepler, the stacked RAM version can end up with 800GB/s to 1000GB/s bandwidth.

 

This is some significantly faster than the 288 GB/s that we saw with GK110-based products such as the Geforce GTX 780 Ti or Geforce Titan. The K20X, the fastest professional solution available today, is stuck at 250GB/s with the hope that its Maxwell successor will get slightly higher bandwidth.

The new point to point communication chip called NVLink will also help solve the memory bandwidth issue. Most algorithms in the word that are used for computation or hard tasks in graphics such as ray tracing will always end up asking for faster memory access. This is why Pascal will play a major role in the future of compute units such as Nvidia's Tesla products, or faster 4K or gaming of the future.

We saw some presentations at the GTC with a projection of Volta (now Pascal) where a scientist expects that with 1024GB per second bandwidth, Pascal could be aiming at 4000GFLOPS a second in dual precision and 12000GFLOPS a second in single precision computation.

To put things in perspective the GK 110-based Tesla K20x with 14 SMXs and 250GB/s bandwidth offers 1310GFLOPS of dual precision and 3950GFLOPS in single precision. Tesla K20x is an actual product, shipping as we speak, while the Volta (Pascal stacked RAM GPU that hits the market in 2016 ed.) numbers are projections. These final numbers will depend on the final clock and configuration of the high-end Pascal chip.

Based on these projections you can get close to three times faster computation power, and this is a huge leap that will happen some two years from now.

The future looks interesting and don’t worry, if you want to do realistic rendering and ray traced lightning effects or global illumination, you will need at least a few of these 12000GFLOPS per second cards to enjoy a real time experience. Real time ray tracing in computer games will still be a dream even beyond significant computational and memory improvements in 2016. However, this does not mean that we will not see some hybrid ray tracing solutions over the next few years.

          Silicon Valley: Watch an in-depth breakdown of the title sequence    

Silicon Valley has given fans plenty of insight into Pied Piper and Hooli, but a new breakdown of the HBO comedy’s title sequence is going inside the rest of the tech world.

In the video, the folks at Shots Fired touch on the different companies present in the Emmy-nominated show’s animated opening, including Amazon, Slack, Twitter, Tesla, Uber, and Apple. Somehow, Bachmanity missed the cut.

Silicon Valley wrapped up its fourth season on Sunday, and EW talked to creator Mike Judge and departing star T.J. Miller about the episode. The series has already been renewed for a fifth season.

          Uber CEO quits Trump's business advisory group

Uber Technologies Inc Chief Executive Officer Travis Kalanick quit President Donald Trump's business advisory group on Thursday amid mounting pressure from activists and employees who oppose the administration's immigration policies.

Critics included Uber drivers, many of whom are immigrants themselves.

"Joining the group was not meant to be an endorsement of the president or his agenda but unfortunately it has been misinterpreted to be exactly that," Kalanick, who had planned to attend a meeting of the group on Friday, said in an email to staff that was seen by Reuters.

Uber spokeswoman Chelsea Kohler later confirmed that he had left the group.

Social media campaigns had targeted Uber, urging users to delete accounts and opt for rival Lyft Inc. Uber has been emailing users who deleted their accounts to say it shares their concerns and will compensate drivers affected by the ban.

Kalanick said he spoke briefly to Trump about the immigration order "and its issues for our community" and told the president he would not join the economic council.

The CEO came under increasing pressure to leave the council after Trump issued an executive order temporarily barring people from seven majority-Muslim nations from entering the United States.

"There are many ways we will continue to advocate for just change on immigration but staying on the council was going to get in the way of that. The executive order is hurting many people in communities all across America," he wrote in a note to employees. "Families are being separated, people are stranded overseas and there’s a growing fear the U.S. is no longer a place that welcomes immigrants."

The White House said in a statement Thursday evening that did not mention Uber that Trump "understands the importance of an open dialogue with fellow business leaders to discuss how to best make our nation's economy stronger."

The move could put pressure on other CEOs expected to attend a meeting with Trump on Friday. General Motors Co said its chief executive would attend, while Walt Disney Co said earlier Thursday its chief executive would not attend because of a long-planned board meeting.

Others expected to take part include the CEOs of JPMorgan Chase & Co, Blackstone Group LP, IBM Corp and Wal-Mart Stores Inc. Others that are part of the council include Tesla Inc CEO Elon Musk, PepsiCo Inc CEO Indra Nooyi and Boston Consulting Group CEO Rich Lesser.

Musk said he would attend the meeting. "In tomorrow's meeting, I and others will express our objections to the recent executive order on immigration and offer suggestions for changes to the policy," he said in a tweet on Thursday.

Kalanick's departure could signal a growing rift between technology companies and Washington.
"There is a battle brewing between Trump and Silicon Valley," said Neeraj Agrawal, general partner at Battery Ventures. "They (the Trump administration) clearly don't value the economic activity generated by tech."

Microsoft Corp on Thursday said it proposed a modification of Trump's travel limits.

Technology companies including Microsoft, Google owner Alphabet Inc, Apple Inc and Amazon.com Inc have opposed Trump’s order, arguing that they rely on workers from around the world.

Amazon and Expedia Inc have filed court documents supporting a legal challenge to the order by the Washington state attorney general.

          Comment on Why a Company Can’t “Be More Like a Startup” by stephanfroede   
The term illegal is a bit hard, imo. There is a difference challenging the status quo based on regulation and outright illegal activities. Sometimes, I do have the impression that some founders do regard ANY law as disposable and deniable, only bc it fits their story. Some do behave like zealots here, and do attack and ignore laws and regulations only bc they exist. This becomes a huge problem, if the health of the customer or a neutral observer can be impaired. This happened in the case of Tesla. Fun ends with death and health problems. In the case of Tesla's reckless promoted AutoPilot I even would say that destroying or killing the driver would be an act of self-defense, and would be ethical acceptable. I don't think that I do have to accept personal risks just because somebody is too lazy to drive his Tesla on his own. And I'm not alone, after an accident with a self-driving car, some people said exactly the same. I don't think that it helps any startup is their product is seen as a personal threat. In that sense venturing into the markets shouldn't happen without considering hazardous risks. Turning the business model of incumbent up sight down, Ok. Destroying an industry, Ok. Unbundling monopolies, Ok. Destroying the environment, not Ok. Risking the life and health of people, not Ok. And especially Uber and Tesla, was and are reckless here, and exactly for this reason the CEO of Uber had to go, and it's only a question of time until Musk has to go. This recklessness also didn't SV very well, the founder bro culture spiraled out of control in some cases, with unpleasant side-effects. That's bad for the long term prospects.

          Porsche Spins Out of Control in Latest Attempt to Keep Up With Tesla   

Here is something you don’t see everyday: a Porsche absolutely spinning out trying to keep up with a Tesla. When you think of Porsche, you think fast, sleek, expensive, and there is no way a Tesla can beat it if put head-to-head. Well, think again, because it happened and it was all caught on film for our enjoyment. YouTube user dadcz was able to catch this miracle on video, of the sporty coupe attempting to match the acceleration of Elon Musk’s electric beast. An electric car beating a gas-powered monster seemed impossible, especially a well-known car like a Porsche. Is the car better? Maybe not, but we know who won this race. It is also entirely possible to think that the driver of […]

          Go Electric, Young Man! The Story of the Electric Fiat "500"   

The Fiat "500," manufactured from 1957 to 1975 was a true prodigy of engineering and it left a deep impression on popular culture in many countries. Above, driven by "Lupin Sansei" (ルパン三世), a Japanese Manga character created by Monkey Punch. In this post, I describe how we transformed one of these old cars to run on electric power.


Some ten years ago, myself and my friend Pietro Cambi had the weird idea of "retrofitting" Pietro's old Fiat 500, turning it into an electric car. To understand why we embarked in such a task, you have to consider that we were (and are) both "peak oilers"; but also we were (and are) both Italian and the Fiat 500 is a car that has a peculiar fascination for Italians. Nobody in Italy can forget how the 500 motorized Italians in the 1950s, at the time of the "Economic Miracle". For Italians, the Fiat 500 carries the same fascination that the French have for their "R4", the Germans for their VW "Beetle" and the Russian for their "T34" (this last one not exactly a car, though). 

So, we put this idea into practice in 2007 and it worked. It was, actually, rather easy. An electric car is so much simpler than a car powered by a combustion engine. Just look at the difference: 

You see? The internal combustion engine is a mess of pipes, cables, valves, and all sort of strange things. The electric motor is just what you see: a cylinder with a small fan on top. That's it. To make things even simpler for us, we took a motor of the same rated power (12kW) as the old engine and we connected it to the gearbox. In reality, a smaller motor would have been more than enough. Then, if we had been able to create something more sophisticated, we wouldn't have needed a gearbox, we could have connected the motor (better still, two motors) directly to the wheels. More efficient and even simpler. 

For more technical detail, you can see a post of mine on "The Oil Drum". We added lithium-polymer batteries and a control system. The result was a wonderful little car that ran very nicely with a range of nearly 100 km. It aroused a lot of interest, as you can see in this picture (h/t Chantal, professional model who kindly accepted to pose with the 500)


It also aroused some interest with politicians and we tried to have the government approve a law that favored the electric retrofitting of old cars. It didn't work; the law was rejected, also because the Communists (yes, there were Communists in the Italian parliament, at that time) voted against it. Apparently, they thought that the working class should only take the bus. 

Apart from the diehard Communists in parliament, our attempt to create a retrofitting industry was probably doomed from the beginning. We expected some resistance to the idea, but we were not fully prepared to the howls of disgust we received, directed at the concept of retrofitting and reusing old cars. Apparently, a rule of life is that prosperity comes from building as many toys as possible and discarding them as fast as possible (and he who dies with the most toys, wins). Repairing or refitting old toys is not contemplated by the rules, even though that would save energy and resources. Only subversives, madmen, and peak oilers could ever think of such a thing. 

Ten years have passed. From then, some more retrofitting attempts have been made, some again with the Fiat 500. And the lower cost of batteries has made the task much less expensive than it was in 2007. Still, retrofitting remains a very marginal industry where only a minuscule number of enthusiasts are engaged. 

You may call this result a failure but, rethinking about this story, I think we still did something good. One good result was to demonstrate how simple and practical an electric vehicle could be in an age when there were very few electric cars available. Of course, we were not the only ones who proposed electric prototypes; there were many others. But we added our little bit to a movement of ideas that was leading to something. Then, there came Elon Musk and his Tesla; the electric car is not anymore a toy for hippies, it is a serious commercial and industrial product, moving onward to conquer the market. 

More than all, I think that what we did was a step in a direction which we ourselves couldn't fully perceive at the time. We had this idea that a car needed not to be a huge, smelly, inefficient, destructive monster but it could be something simple, small, friendly, and unprepossessing (see below, Pietro Cambi driving the 500 in the Cathedral Square, in Florence)


Taken to its extreme consequences, the idea of a small and friendly car becomes something that has little to do with the concept of "car" as it was intended up to now. Add to it a GPS positioning system, make full use of the intelligent electronic systems we have nowadays, and we have a completely new paradigm. The car is not anymore a car, but just an element of a "TAAS" (transportation as a service) system, where we don't own cars, we share them. That's the direction in which we are going. And we are going there using electric cars.

          Tesla News   
Ces derniers jours, les news sur Tesla se sont multipliés, en voici un petit résumé.


Tout d'abord, Tesla promet de produire une voiture électrique coûtant moins de 30,000 $ dans moins de 4 ans. À ce prix, on commence à toucher le grand public et Tesla va pouvoir se faire un nom dans le monde déjà bien occupé de l'automobile; d'ici-là.

Tesla annonce qu'elle va produire une Sedan/Break pour 5 passagers avec 4 portes sous la barre des 60,000 $. Ce nouveau modèle s'appellera Model S et aura une autonomie de 225 KM à pleine charge. Il sera assemblé dans la nouvelle usine au nord de la Californie. Ni prix, ni date de disponibilité n'ont été annoncés.

Une rumeur circule en ce moment veut que Tesla fournisse à Mercedes-Benz des batteries lithium-ion pour produire aux alentours de 2010, une Smart électrique. Qui vivra verra !

Toutes ces nouvelles me donnent confiance dans l'avenir, un avenir sans pétrole, avec moins de gaz à effet de serre, un avenir où je pourrais me déplacer sans culpabiliser.

Tant qu'il y a de la vie, il y a de l'espoir !

Great article. Thanks for posting. Ivan
          Here’s how iPhone usage breaks down in the US (AAPL)   

Thursday marks the tenth anniversary of the first day Apple’s flagship phone went on sale.

The story of the iPhone’s importance to both Apple and society is well-worn at this point. But for as significant as the device was, nostalgia doesn’t carry over in consumer tech the way it does with movies or video games.

Case in point: At last check, the number of iPhone owners in the US using a mode released before 2014 is in the single digits, according to a recent Consumer Intelligence Research Partners survey charted for us by Statista. Meanwhile, a third of those iPhone owners are now using a Plus model, which was only introduced in 2014.

Of course, none of this is terribly surprising — Apple phases every iPhone out eventually, as the newer versions of the iPhone software stop supporting the older devices. But anniversaries like tomorrow are as much a reminder of how quickly tech moves as anything else.

          Banks are jumping after passing the Fed's second stress test (BAC, MS, GS, ALLY, JPM, C, KEY, WFC, CS)

The bank stocks passed a big milestone Wednesday.

The results of the qualitative Fed's stress test were released after the market close on Wednesday, and all of the banks passed. This was the first time all major US banks passed the test, according to the Wall Street Journal

Passing the tests means the banks will be able to share their wealth with stockholders.

After passing the tests, many of the banks announced buybacks and dividend increases.

Most of the bank stocks are on the move after passing the test. Here is a round-up of some of the most notable names.

Capital One's shares are falling after the results. The credit card company only "conditionally" passed the stress tests and will have to resubmit its plan.

The results released Wednesday are the qualitative portion of the Fed's stress tests, the harder portion of the tests according to some investors. The banks previously passed the quantitative portions earlier in the month.

          THE PAYMENTS INDUSTRY EXPLAINED: The Trends Creating New Winners And Losers In The Card-Processing Ecosystem   

bii payments ecosystemUSETHISBI Intelligence

This is a preview of a research report from BI Intelligence, Business Insider's premium research service. To learn more about BI Intelligence, click here.

The way we pay is changing dramatically. For example, people are beginning to use their smartphones for every kind of formal and informal transaction — to shop at stores, buy songs online, and even split their rent.

At the heart of these changes in how we pay are thousands of companies competing and collaborating to facilitate transactions.

To understand why the payments industry has faced so much disruption in such a short time, there's just one key thing to understand: Payments is about transferring information from one party to another, and nearly every stakeholder in the industry benefits when that process runs on digital rails.

But payments is also an extremely complex industry that few fully understand.

In BI Intelligence's 2016 Payments Ecosystem report, we make it simple, explaining how it works, who the key players are, and where it's headed.

In this latest edition of the report, BI Intelligence drills even further into the industry to explain how a broad range of transactions are processed, including prepaid and store cards, as well as revealing which types of companies are in the best and worst position to capitalize on the latest industry trends.

Here are some key takeaways from the report:

  • 2016 will be a watershed year for the payments industry. Payments companies are improving security, expanding their mobile offerings, and building commerce capabilities that will give consumers a more compelling reason to make purchases using digital devices.
  • Payments is an extremely complex industry. To understand the next big digital opportunity lies, it's critical to understand how the traditional credit- and debit-processing chain works and what roles acquirers, processors, issuing banks, card networks, independent sales organizations, gateways, and software and hardware providers play.
  • Alternative technologies could disrupt the processing ecosystem. Devices ranging from refrigerators to smartwatches now feature payment capabilities, which will spur changes in consumer payment behaviors. Likewise, blockchain technology, the protocol that underlies Bitcoin, could one day change how consumer card payments are verified.

In full, the report:

  • Uncovers the key themes and trends affecting the payments industry in 2016 and beyond.
  • Gives a detailed description of the stakeholders involved in a payment transaction, along with hardware and software providers.
  • Offers diagrams and infographics explaining how card transactions are processed and which players are involved in each step.
  • Provides charts on our latest forecasts, key company growth, survey results, and more.
  • Analyzes the alternative technologies, including blockchain, which could further disrupt the ecosystem.

          A top auto analyst says GM could jump to $50 a share — but there's a catch (GM)   

mary barraBill Pugliano/Getty

Morgan Stanley analyst Adam Jonas has lately been more bullish on General Motors, even as traditional car companies have seen their stock prices hammered while investors rush into upstarts such as Tesla, whose shares have surged almost 80% this year.

Morgan Stanley was involved with GM's recent proxy battle with Greenlight Capital's David Einhorn, so Jonas wasn't commenting on the carmaker.

But in a note published Wednesday, he resumed coverage with an "overweight" rating and a $40 price target (GM is now trading at $35).

Jonas also articulated a "bull case," however, which would see GM rising to $50. But that would depend on some aggressive business moves.

"While GM management in our view appear highly aware and attuned to the challenges and opportunities facing OEMs, they have not commented on specific subsequent transactions to exit, monetize or spin any of its specific businesses," he wrote.

"We believe that during this formative time of technology and business model change investors may show a willingness to value GM on the basis of some of its more valuable assets over the next 12-18 months."

You don't have to read between the lines there to realize what Jonas is suggesting. And this isn't the first time he's argued that GM could be broken up. He raised the issue earlier this year, months before Greenlight proposed that GM offer two new classes of shares, one for capital appreciation and growth, the other for dividend investors (the plan was shot down at GM's annual meeting this month).

Auto 1.0 to Auto 2.0

GM vs. Wall Street ChartAndy Kiersz/Buisness Insider

The last major spinoff in the auto industry, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles' IPO of Ferrari in 2015, has returned 119% over the past 12 months, making it the best-performing stock in the sector. That's certainly influencing Jonas' thinking, something that's been confirmed by his questions for FCA and Ferrari CEO Sergio Marchionne about additional spinoffs (namely, Jeep).

For GM, Jonas wants to fit the automaker into his "Auto 1.0-to-Auto 2.0" thesis.

"Quite simply, we believe GM has a number of assets and businesses that are of potentially high strategic value to outside players or partners who are keen on entering the global mobility space," he wrote.

"We also believe there are steps that, hypothetically, can be taken to unlock hidden tech value at GM while maintaining some degree of benefit to the remaining business ... through commercial or ownership arrangements."

A few years back, GM would have balked at the idea of selling off chinks of itself. But under the leadership of CEO Mary Barra, the company has focused on maximizing its return on investment and has been ruthless about shedding underperforming assets, most recently in nearly 100-year-old European division, Opel/Vauxhall, which is sold to Peugeot for about $2 billion.

GM has also established a new brand, Maven, to market car-sharing and mobility to younger, urban customers, and the company is rolling out a ride-hailing initiative with Lyft after investing $500 million in startup. Either of these businesses could grow more rapidly than the legacy business and be a candidate for a spinoff.

Компания Waymo, которая является подразделением Google по разработке автономных автомобилей, вовсю тестирует беспилотный грузовик.Издание Jalopnik публикует сделанные фотошпионами снимки тягача Peterbilt 579 с логотипом Waymo — машина оснащена лидаром, радаром и ультразвуковыми сенсорами. О том, что Waymo работает над созданием самоходных грузовиков, агентство сообщило в начале июля. В компании тогда пояснили, что такие грузовики будут перевозить товары на дальние расстояния, тогда как люди-водители продолжат обслуживать более короткие маршруты. Google’s self-driving car division is working on (semi-)autonomous trucks https://t.co/ypNK619WN3 #logistics #transport #truck #driver pic.twitter.com/rwZalHEqsZ— RouteXL (@RouteXLcom) 28 июня 2017 г.Как отмечает Jalopnik, есть большие сомнения, что эту новость воспримут с энтузиазмом 3 млн водителей грузовиков в США, которые сейчас перевозят 70% национальных грузов. Американским властям, очевидно, пора уже задуматься об их будущем трудоустройстве. Напомним, что беспилотные грузовики разрабатывают также Tesla, Amazon, Mercedes, Uber (в рамках проекта UberFreight), китайская FAW, российский «КамАЗ». Осенью прошлого года глава Росавтодора призвал российских дальнобойщиков готовиться к переквалификации, заявив, что через пять лет они могут быть вытеснены с рынка беспилотными технологиями.

          Электромобиль Faraday Future FF 91 установил рекорд в гонках Pikes Peak — сайт За рулем www.zr.ru — Автоновости Autoru.news   

В прошлом году полноприводная Tesla Model S P90D въехала на Пайкс Пик на 11 минут 48,264 секунды. Faraday Future FF 91 в этом году забрался на гору за 11 минут 25,082 секунды. За рулем машины был ее главный инженер Робин Шуте. Пресс-служба американского стартапа выпустила победную реляцию, в которой сообщалось о новом рекорде Pikes Peak для серийных электромобилей. Видео заезда обещают обнародовать позже. Проблема в том, что FF 91 еще не выпускается: машина была официально представлена в начале этого года на выставке CES в Лас-Вегасе, где было сказано, что серийное производство начнется только в 2018 году. Сообщается, что на гонках выступал автомобиль в предсерийной спецификации, но по протоколу он выступал в классе Exhibition (выставочные автомобили). Тесла же в прошлом году была зачислена в класс Production (серийные автомобили), а стало быть, сравнивать напрямую результаты этих двух электромобилей нельзя. Тем не менее, в абсолютном зачете FF 91 действительно оказался быстрее Теслы. Любопытно, что сама компания Tesla к прошлогоднему рекорду не имеет прямого отношения, автомобиль на соревнования выставляла частная команда. Самое же быстрое время прохождения трассы в этом году показал болид Norma MXX RD класса Unlimited (без ограничений) под управлением пилота Ромена Дюма: он добрался до вершины за 9 минут 05,672 секунды. Напомни, что 20-километровая дорога на Пайкс Пик в Колорадо не менее известна, чем легендарная немецкая Северная петля Нюрбургринга, но при этом американская трасса более требовательна к технике, финиш расположен на отметке 4301 м над уровнем моря. В обычные дни, если погода хорошая, заехать на Пайкс Пик может любой желающий, но гнать во весь опор по ней, в отличие от Нюрбургринга, нельзя — это публичная дорога, на ней действуют гражданские ПДД, поэтому рекорды устанавливаются только раз в год в рамках соревнований Pikes Peak International Hill Climb. В феврале этого года фирма Faraday Future из-за проблем с финансированием заявила о значительной корректировке своих производственных планов в сторону уменьшения. О полноценной рыночной конкуренции с Теслой теперь речи не идет. Фото: Faraday Future Источник новости Источник новости

          Addition by Toni Jordan   

In Toni Jordan's Addition, we meet Grace Vandenburg, who likes to count. No, Grace loves to count. She's loved to count ever since she was a little girl. On her nightstand she keeps the Cuisenaire rods from her childhood and a framed picture of her hero, Nikola Tesla, for whom she has much affection. Grace knows how many paces it takes her to get from her apartment to her favorite cafe, or to the grocery. Her apartment is perfectly ordered. She has daily routines that start at 5:55 a.m., when it's time to get out of bed. Every day she has hot cocoa and orange cake at the cafe and every night she has chicken and vegetables for supper. On Sunday, her mother calls at 8:00 p.m. and her sister Jill calls at 8:20 p.m. So when she meets Seamus O'Reilly, where does he fit into her routines? Seamus makes Grace very happy and she wants to make him happy. On his suggestion, she enters therapy for her obsessive counting and begins taking prescribed medication. With therapy and medication come a new set of problems for Grace and Seamus. Can Grace give up counting and still be her true self? Will she still be the woman Seamus so loved and wanted to help?

I'm already looking forward to reading whatever Toni Jordan decides to write next. She has done something fairly unique with Addition. It is a romance in a way, but in another way it's a real look at identity and what it means to be well. The story is told in the first person, from Grace's perspective, with much wit. So, the book's tone changes when Grace enters therapy, taking you deeper into her experience. Grace is the star of the story, but the supporting cast of characters are fun too. Seamus is both loving and intuitive to Grace's needs, or at least he tries to be. Her niece Hilly (a.k.a. Larry), though a child, is the one who often knows Grace best. The germaphobics in Grace's therapy group are an interesting bunch. Nikola Tesla was as much a part of the story as any of the other characters; Grace liked to compare situations in her life to situations in her dear Nikola's life. 

In the acknowledgements, the author gives credit to two books for information on Nikola Tesla. If you're interested, both are available from the EVPL: Tesla: Man Out of Time by Margaret Cheney & Wizard: The Life and Times of Nikola Tesla by Marc J. Seifer.

I'll confess it was the bright, pretty cover that first attracted me to Addition, but had it not caught my eye, I would have really missed out.

          Back in the USA   

We left our hostel at 3:30am this morning and saw the Serbian sunrise from the airport.  We arrived back in Winchester a bit before 6:00pm.  All of us were sad to say farewell to Serbia, but glad to be back in the states at the same time.



This past week was jammed pack with activities.  Our group explored Serbia’s past by visiting the Mesolithic settlement at Lepenski Vir, Roman ruins at Viminacium, ethno village of Sirogojna, Skull Tower (the Ottoman Empire’s attempt to prevent further Serbian revolts), and Memorial Park.  

The village of Sirogojna demonstrating Serbian life in the 19th century.

Skull Tower:  The Ottoman Empire created a tower out of 952 skulls of fallen Serbian warriors to act as a warning to those opposing the empire.  Only 58 skulls remain.

Memorial Park: The site of Nazi execution of over 2,000 men and boys.

We also looked at religion in Serbia through visits to Saint Sava Temple, Bajrakli Mosque, and Belgrade Synagogue.   Additionally, we visited the Tesla Museum and Stopica cave.

Thank you Shenandoah University to giving us the opportunity to experience the great country of Serbia!

          Las batallas de Edison   
Se lo conoce como el inventor más prolífico de toda la historia, y hasta podríamos decir que Thomas Alva Edison es el "inventor de las ideas", pues la lamparita es sinónimo gráfico de ellas. Su vida estuvo dedicada a la investigación pero también tuvo que ocuparse de problemas más mundanos, pelear por sus creaciones, luchar con su ego.
Por cierto que una batalla no se lleva a cabo en soledad, se precisa un contrincante (o varios), y si es posible algún aliado. Edison los tuvo: los conocemos asociados al mundo de las finanzas y la industria petrolera, se trata de J. P. Morgan y John Rockefeller, quienes a fines del siglo XIX se enfrentaron por el negocio de la electricidad, que podría ser súper exitoso o hundir a quien confiara en la peor de las bancarrotas (la que está acompañada por el ridículo).
Es en diciembre de 1879 cuando un joven Thomas Alva Edison ilumina (por primera vez públicamente) su laboratorio con energía eléctrica. A partir de allí, cambiaría la historia de la humanidad. Cabe señalar que muchos discrepan con la idea de que Edison fuese el inventor de la lamparita eléctrica incandescente, y mencionan otros nombres tales como Warren de la Rue, Joseph Swan y Humphry Davy.
Una vez presentado el laboratorio iluminado, era tiempo de encontrar inversores que quisieran hacerse cargo de financiar el desarrollo masivo del sistema que acababa de dejar boquiabierta a la sociedad norteamericana. La idea era “electrificar” Nueva York. El joven banquero J. P. Morgan aceptó el desafío, y contra lo que le aconsejaba su padre, invirtió en la idea (en 1880 formarían la Edison General Electric).
Por su parte, el petrolero John Rockefeller fue un acérrimo detractor del sistema que proponía Edison, no porque no creyese en él, sino porque era quien se encargaba de suministrar el aceite y el gas con que se alimentaban las lámparas. Un ataque certero a su prolífica economía.
Es sabido que todo invento que mejore la vida es recibido con entusiasmo por sus beneficiarios, y sin duda, la idea de iluminar un ambiente con solo apretar un botón, lo era. Pero también es cierto que lo nuevo genera temor, y cualquier noticia que demostrara la nocividad del invento prendería en la sociedad de la época sin mucho esfuerzo. Es por eso que Rockefeller comenzaría una lenta pero por momentos exitosa campaña de desprestigio del sistema propuesto por el pluriinventor. Para ello se encargaba de publicar en los periódicos el lado negativo de la manipulación de la electricidad: las muertes por electrocución.
Thomas Alva Edison
No era ésta la única guerra que debía enfrentar Edison, pues un empleado de su laboratorio, Nicholai Tesla, le abriría un nuevo frente de batalla… Edison trabajó con el sistema de corriente continua (DC), cuya desventaja más notoria era la transmisibilidad, en cambio, Tesla había desarrollado motores que trabajaban con corriente alterna (AC), y cansado del desprecio de su idea por parte de Edison, decidió renunciar y conseguir su propio inversor. El industrial George Westinghouse fue quien aceptó el desafío.
Comenzaba la denominada “guerra de corrientes”, y quien saldría más herido sería Edison. Otro empleado de su laboratorio, Harold Brown, había investigado la electrocución, y había desarrollado un elemento de castigo que funcionaba con corriente alterna: la silla eléctrica. En un intento por desprestigiar a Tesla, Edison apoyó el proyecto (es por esta razón que se le adjudica a él también erróneamente este invento) ya que suponía que al utilizar el sistema de corriente ideado por Tesla, éste quedaría unido a la silla de la muerte. Sin embargo, las cosas no resultaron como él pretendía, y luego de la primera ejecución, la imagen de Edison (que había apoyado el proyecto) cayó en picada.
El directorio de la Edison General Electric decidió remover el nombre del inventor de su denominación como para no unir la suerte de la empresa a la imagen negativa que afrontaba su alma máter. Rockefeller no pudo ir contra el progreso, pero tampoco (justo es decirlo) le fue mal con sus negocios. La batalla de las corrientes finalizó con éxito para Tesla, pues Westinghouse presentaba mejores presupuestos para el desarrollo de los trabajos… Sin embargo, quien pasaría a la historia sería Edison que continuó creando, y patentando inventos, y hoy su nombre nos resulta moneda corriente.





          El Brief: Pornografía de la paz en Colombia; Orgullo Gay sin judíos; disparos en Venezuela   

Juan Manuel Santos y Rodrigo Londoño 'Timochenko'

¡Buenos días, actuallers!

Estas son las historias más destacadas al comenzar este miércoles 28 de junio, San Ireneo. Si te lo han reenviado, date de alta aquí para recibirlo directamente en tu buzón.

SOLO PARA SUSCRIPTORES

El espectáculo de la paz no se acaba en Colombia.

En la ceremonia sentimental del desarme de las FARC representada este martes en Mesetas, con el presidente Juan Manuel Santos y alias Timochenko como protagonistas, puedes ver cosas muy diferentes, según cómo observes la escena.

Puedes ver a un asesino de masas entregando al Estado los fusiles y las granadas, o puedes ver a un gobernante entregando a los terroristas la justicia, la verdad y la memoria, que son las armas de un Estado democrático y de Derecho para proteger no solo a los vivos, sino también a los muertos.

“Ha valido la pena ser presidente de Colombia para ver este día”, dijo el señor Santos.

En todo caso, los fastos de “la paz” demuestran una vez más que Foucault dio con la tecla al invertir el famoso apotegma de Clausewitz.

Este dijo que la guerra es la continuación de la política por otros medios, a lo que el autor de Las palabras y las cosas replicó con una imbatible teoría del poder en una frase: “La política es la continuación de la guerra por otros medios”.

En el caso de las FARC y de otras bandas supuestamente desarmadas, como la ETA en España, la política es una continuación del terrorismo por otros medios, una voladura de la verdad para imponer la postverdad con la violencia del Estado a su favor.

Verdad: siete millones de víctimas, según el Registro Único, durante cincuenta años de terrorismo para instalar una dictadura comunista en Colombia.

Verdad: niños reclutados a la fuerza, utilizados como carne de cañón, mano de obra esclava y juguetes sexuales en los campamentos de la banda.

Verdad: un referéndum desoído, en el que una mayoría de colombianos dijo “no” a este acuerdo de paz injusto que amnistía a los terroristas, les entrega territorios, les financia con dinero de todos los colombianos y les garantiza una cuota anti-democrática de escaños en el parlamento.

Postverdad: el espectáculo de la paz, esa escena de alias Timochenko con un bebé en brazos, y el presidente Santos haciéndole cucamonas.

¿También secuestraron a ese bebé? ¿Se salvó, por un milagro, de ser abortado por las manos carniceras del “enfermero de las FARC”, el terrorista que practicó más de 300 abortos a guerrilleras? ¿Esperarán a que crezca un poco para utilizarlo como esclavo en las zonas que el Gobierno ha entregado a los terroristas?

Postverdad: pornografía sentimental de una mentira.

Venezuela: disparos desde un helicóptero de la Policía

Un helicóptero de la Policía Científica de Venezuela sobrevoló este martes la sede del Tribunal Supremo y la del Ministerio del Interior, contra las que disparó y arrojó cuatro granadas.

Varios vehículos militares han rodeado el Palacio de Miraflores en lo que parece un plan para defender al Gobierno. El presidente Nicolás Maduro condenó el ataque, que calificó como un “acto de terrorismo” y prometió capturar a los autores.

“Este es el tipo de escalada armada que he venido denunciando. He activado a la Fuerza Armada Nacional para defender el derecho a la tranquilidad”, dijo el mandatario.

Según el Gobierno, el helicóptero fue pilotado por el inspector Óscar Pérez y mostraba una pancarta que decía “350 Libertad”, en alusión a un artículo de la Constitución que faculta a los venezolanos a desconocer un régimen autoritario.

Pérez publicó varios vídeos en Instagram en los que se presenta como miembro de “una coalición de funcionarios militares, policiales y civiles en contra de este Gobierno transitorio y criminal”.

Algunos observadores internacionales apuntan la posibilidad de que detrás de este ataque esté el propio régimen del presidente Maduro, que buscaría, así, justificar una mayor represión de la policía contra los manifestantes.

QUÉ MÁS

PP, PSOE y Podemos dicen “no” a los vientres de alquiler. La ley de “gestación subrogada” del partido Ciudadanos no prosperará en el Parlamento español. PP y PSOE rechazan “la mercantilización” de las mujeres. Un grupo de mujeres se manifestó este martes a las puertas del Congreso, coincidiendo con la presentación del proyecto de ley de Ciudadanos. Llevaban carteles pegados al vientre, que decían: “Se alquila”. (El País)

Sátira hiriente contra dos obispos. La organización juvenil de la CUP, partido anarco-independentista de Cataluña, ha difundido una caricatura de los obispos de Solsona y de Valencia, Xavier Novell y Antonio Cañizares respectivamente, practicando sexo anal. “Contra la vostra moral, placer anal” –“Contra vuestra moral, placer anal”– puede leerse en el cartel. Arran, la organización juvenil de la CUP, lanza esta campaña en el contexto de los festejos del Orgullo LGBT. (e-Noticies)

Merkel abre la puerta al “matrimonio igualitario”. La canciller cambia su “no” rotundo al matrimonio y la adopción gay. Los diputados de la CDU podrán votar en conciencia cuando el debate llegue al parlamento, quizá esta misma semana. (Actuall)

Juegos de parejas en España. El presidente Mariano Rajoy se reunió con su socio Albert Rivera, de Ciudadanos, mientras el líder socialista Pedro Sánchez y el de Podemos, Pablo Iglesias, se vieron para impulsar una agenda paralela a la del Gobierno y hablar de cómo desbancar al PP. (Europa Press, El Diario)

Cumbre Argentina-Chile. Mauricio Macri y Michelle Bachelet acordaron avanzar en la integración bilateral, a través de instrumentos supranacionales como el Mercosur y la Alianza del Pacífico. (La Nación)

Muere un policía en las protestas de Venezuela. Un sargento de la Guardia Nacional Bolivariana, de 27 años de edad, recibió un disparodurante las protestas de este martes en Maracay. En los disturbios, resultó herido un adolescente que participaba en la manifestación. La Fiscalía ha anunciado una investigación. (Caraota Digital, Efecto Cocuyo)

Crisis en el bloque de Fujimori. Dos diputadas de Fuerza Popular, el grupo mayoritario de la Oposición en Perú, han dejado el bloque de Keiko Fujimori y se han pasado al grupo de no adscritos. Alegan incumplimientos de compromisos sobre la reforma electoral y la lucha contra la corrupción. Fuerza Popular se queda con 71 diputados, y peligra la candidatura de Kenji Fujimori para la Presidencia del Parlamento. (Perú 21)

Cuba bajo vigilancia por la trata de personas. Estados Unidos mantiene a la isla en observación, en el informe anual sobre el tráfico de personas y la trata sexual. El Departamento de Estado condena, en particular, el trabajo forzado de estudiantes y médicos cubanos. Mientras tanto, el diario español El País contó este martes que la dictadura ha encerrado en un psiquiátrico al líder opositor Daniel Llorente, detenido el pasado 1 de mayo. (Cubanet)

Los judíos no son bienvenidos al Orgullo Gay. El desfile de Chicago prohibió a los asistentes llevar banderas del arcoíris con la estrella de David, un símbolo del movimiento LGBT en Israel. Los organizadores alegaron que ese emblema “hace que la gente se sienta insegura”, y que la marcha del Orgullo es “pro-palestina y “anti-sionista”. (Haaretz, en inglés)

CON VOZ PROPIA

“Este es el año en el que la celebración del Orgullo Gay perdió su identidad y se permitió a sí misma ser utilizada como una simple plataforma de izquierdismo. En Nueva York, “la Resistencia” [a Donald Trump] fagocitó todo el desfile. En Toronto, el Orgullo giró alrededor de las demandas del capítulo local de Black Lives Matter y se prohibió a la policía participar en la marcha. En Chicago, el Orgullo prohibió la asistencia de judíos, cayendo en el socialismo de los tontos.”

“Habiendo alcanzado el principal de sus objetivos, el matrimonio homosexual, el movimiento del Orgullo Gay es ahora extrañamente vulnerable. ¿Qué es lo que persigue? ¿Recuperará su herencia radical y asaltará al sionismo y a la policía? ¿O permanecerá en el regazo del establishment del Partido Democrático y se enfocará en la campaña contra las armas de fuego y a favor de la sanidad pública? Los primeros signos sugieren que ni siquiera el movimiento LGBT sabe la respuesta.”

CORRESPONDENCIA

Hola,

me comunico para compartir esta conferencia de Samuel Gregg en la Acton University. Da detalles muy interesantes sobre la cristianofobia, el secularismo moderno,...

Ángel Manuel García Carmona

El comentario de uno de nuestros suscriptores, Justo Paz, en la edición anterior de este boletín, está causando bastante revuelo.

Jaime M. lamenta que no haya filtros en esta sección de “Correspondencia”:

Realmente sorprende que un periodista avezado como tú publique –dé crédito– a las cartas del señor Justo Paz, con un contenido que claramente falsea la verdad de lo que ocurre en Venezuela. 

A quienes estamos en este país, nos sorprende el desparpajo con que falsea la realidad venezolana, con una actitud que se parece muchísimo a las intervenciones del aparato del Estado en los medios de comunicación.

Saludos,

Jaime M.

Josefina Cámara B., desde México DF, da réplica al mismo comentario:

Respecto de la edición del ‘Brief’ de hoy [por este martes], quiero decirte que, si estamos mirando cómo la Guardia Nacional Bolivariana dispara a los jóvenes a quemarropa, y cómo mata; si sabemos que la oposición no tiene armas y se ve en  los videos, donde el periodista peruano Jaime Bayly proporciona una amplia cobertura, la situación inerme de las personas que salen a protestar, sin contar con las tanquetas, "ballenas", etcétera, que atacan sin piedad, yo quiero saber con qué argumentos y/o evidencias, el corresponsal Justo Paz alega que todo eso es información comprada y falsa.

Que este Señor demuestre que Maduro es un angelito, ¡y a ver quién le cree!, porque las afirmaciones de inocencia para Maduro, Cabello y toda su mafia equivalen a mencionar que todos los que estamos con la oposición, incluyendo a la OEA y al secretario Almagro, somos ciegos, idiotas y comprados.

Te saludo con el afecto de siempre,

Josefina Cámara B., México.

Andrés, desde Venezuela:

Buenos días, don Victor. 

Espero que estéis bien, y continuéis con éxito en este ‘Brief’, que a tantos satisface.

He leído la edición de hoy 27 de junio [por este martes] como siempre sigo a diario este medio.

Quiero apuntar mi opinión, como lo he hecho algunas veces sobre los temas expuestos. 

Vivo en Venezuela, y sé lo que está pasando. Me sorprende hoy la opinión de Justo Paz, que siempre he leído y me ha parecido loable en muchos tópicos, pero hoy considero desafortunada, en cuanto dice: “¿Vas a creer las mentiras sobre Venezuela?” Y luego pone en duda que Leopoldo López haya gritado desde su celda diciendo que le han estado torturando.

¿Qué tiene de raro que pueda hacer esto? En las fotos de Leopoldo López que he visto en los periódicos locales, siempre aparece el calabozo donde está recluido en Ramo Verde, con una ventana hacia el exterior, en un nivel superior desde donde se asoma, y ha sido fotografiado por los reporteros desde el exterior. 

Si aún no se le amordaza tapándole la boca, no tiene nada de raro que pueda gritar. 

En lo que sí estoy de acuerdo es en que “poderoso caballero es Don Dinero”. Y en esto está la razón de lo que acaba de ocurrir en la OEA; que un grupo de pequeños países del Caribe, más los del ALBA, cuyas campañas políticas y obras como casas, carreteras, etcétera financió Chávez, hayan bloqueado la resolución en contra del gobierno de Venezuela, como se sabe desde la época de Chávez  se le vende el petróleo con un precio especial a estos países del Caribe que son en su mayoría pequeñas islas. 

No necesito tener recibos, como dice otra opinante, del ‘Brief’, porque es público y notorio. 

En el convenio Petrocaribe, no dudo que más que altruismo fue planificado para tener un apoyo en cualquier controversia, a nivel internacional, en estos organismos.

Me despido deseándole que sigáis adelante en vuestra obra no políticamente correcta, gracias a Dios y felicitando a Ignacio Arsuaga y su equipo, por su valor y constancia en la lucha por la vida y la familia contra la educación que nos quieren imponer, anti-familia natural, en España y todo el mundo.

Andrés

Otro tema de comentarios entre nuestros corresponsales es la doctrina del mal menor aplicada al voto electoral.

Todo empezó con una carta de Roniel Aledo publicada en este boletín el pasado jueves. Su tesis era que, en el debate sobre la ley LGBT que está a punto de llegar al Parlamento español, hay que apoyar al PP, porque es el único que puede frenarla.

En la edición de este lunes, le dio réplica otro suscriptor, Juan L. Sevilla Bujalance.

Cerramos este hilo con una contribución de Enrique Rodríguez:

Permítame contestar a la carta de Juan L. Sevilla Bujalance en el servicio de ayer [por este lunes] sobre la doctrina de la Iglesia del mal menor.

Puedo aceptar provisionalmente que la definición de esa doctrina es como la ha enunciado él (sería, en resumen: "Cuando obligatoriamente se tenga que elegir y no haya donde hacerlo más que en opciones malas debemos respaldar aquello que menos daño cause"). 

Pero, lo que no puedo aceptar es que la Iglesia se haya pronunciado para aplicar esta doctrina en unas elecciones concretas recientes. 

Dicho de otro modo simple: la Iglesia no ha aplicado esta doctrina a ninguna situación concreta reciente.

El señor Sevilla Bujalance cita a monseñor José Ignacio Munilla. Supongo que se refiere a esta carta pastoral. Lo que no dice es que en esa carta monseñor Munilla dice que sí se puede votar a un partido por el principio del mal menor, si es "de forma circunstancial y transitoria". 

Y lo que tampoco dice Sevilla Bujalance es que monseñor Munilla es solo un obispo. 

En España, hay otros setenta y tantos obispos, que tienen los mismo datos que este, y no han dicho nada semejante. En ocasiones muy excepcionales, los obispos de un país han orientado el voto de los católicos obligando a votar por un partido político. Pero lo han hecho todos en conjunto, no uno solo en particular.

Además, a mí me enseñaron que la interpretación auténtica de la doctrina de la Iglesia la hace el papa, no un obispo en particular.

En definitiva, me parece un abuso acudir a la doctrina de la Iglesia para expresar la opinión personal sobre el voto en unas elecciones. La Iglesia no lo hace. 

Por cierto, conviene leer este interesante artículo, para el reciente caso de las elecciones presidenciales en Francia: cuando muchos pedían a los Obispos que se pronunciaran en contra de Le Pen, cuando muchos líderes religiosos se pronunciaron abiertamente a favor de Macron, los obispos dieron muestra de una sana laicidad absteniéndose de pronunciarse.

2017 Tesla pickup Truck UPDATE Apr 24, 2017 / There is no question about the fact Tesla is the largest electric car manufacturer. On top of that, not that long ago they became the most valuable US manufacturer which is not an easy feat to achieve. This was mostly thanks to the fact their Model 3 received more than 400,000 deposits in the first year without even being released. This proved that people are keen to get electric cars so in order to satisfy their need, not that long ago Elon announced that he also plans a truck. The future Tesla

» Do we have the political will to build a different type of transportation system? Or will the rise of autonomous vehicles simply reinforce existing norms?

There is now no debate over whether automated technology will revolutionize the transportation system—the question is just when it will do so. Industry watchers who four years ago predicted it would take a decade and a half to realize fully driverless cars now suggest they’ll be online, everywhere, by 2020.

Indeed, just this week, Tesla announced that all of the vehicles it is producing, including its newest, cheapest Model 3, will have “full self-driving capability at a safety level substantially greater than that of a human driver.” Its cars will feature eight cameras and 12 ultrasonic sensors, designed to evaluate the world around the cars and respond immediately. The technology won’t be activated immediately; it will collect data as drivers use the cars to improve its

          El odio a lo antiguo   
Hay un mismo esquema mental que responde a parte de la furibunda oposición hacia todo lo que tenemos. Es algo similar a una adolescente enfadada porque la vida no es como le habían prometido que se merecía y, entonces, desprecia a sus padres. 

El esquema es fácil: como no me gusta lo que tengo o lo que soy y no soy capaz de asumir mi parte de responsabilidad o que hay cosas buenas entre lo que me ha llevado a donde estoy, todo lo de atrás es una mierda y todo lo nuevo, aunque desconocido , es maravilloso.

Es la respuesta en la que se basan algunas de las ideas no contrastadas y locas que suenan a contemporáneas.

Hay quien dice que los taxistas son unos malvados especuladores que se aprovechan de sus usuarios en sus sucios taxis porque creen que todos los de Uber huelen bien y van en Teslas para hacer el bien al mundo y cobrar menos.
Hay quien, convencido como un gruppie, cree que si no tiene trabajo es porque España le roba y que si Cataluña es independiente vendrá Puigdemont a hacerle una tortilla de patata catalana todas las mañanas.
Hay quien asegura que las multinacionales le sacan las monedas de la cartera por las noches y que los carniceros insultan a las vacas antes de matarlas para que sufran más. Pero que Google y Amazon han venido para salvarle (pagando impuestos en Irlanda y Luxemburgo).
Hay quien cree que en la guerra civil sólo mataban unos, que el presidente de la república no dijo que "todos los conventos de Madrid no merecen la vida de un republicano", mientras quemaban iglesias con curas dentro sin ser todos pederastas.
Hay quien está seguro que arrasar con todo lo que nos ha llevado hasta aquí es la manera correcta de conseguir el Nirvana aunque Kurt Cobain se pegara un tiro.
Hay quien cree que un presidente de gobierno tiene que ser alguien que no ha sido ni presidente de su comunidad de vecinos, que es como poner de portero en la final de la copa de Europa al tipo de la tercera fila del fondo sur porque jura que parará todo.
Hay un ejemplo en el que una pareja discutiendo siempre termina con el hombre castigado.
Hay quien considera fehacientemente que creer en algo parecido a un Dios es ser peor persona.
Hay personas que gritan por la calle la necesidad de una revolución, pero que la hagan sin rayar su Opel Corsa aparcado en una plaza de minusválidos que juran que no deberia de estar ahí
Hay quien cree en la libertad democrática de todos los que piensan como él.

Soy capaz de entender la esperanza en lo nuevo pero no el odio a lo antiguo.

¿Hicimos cosas mal?. Si. Pero no todas.
¿Haremos cosas buenas en el futuro?. Si. Pero no todas.

Ser ecuánime (imparcialidad de juicio) es muy poco moderno.

          El olor de la nueva economía   
Mi abuela, después de la guerra civil y la ruina de mi abuelo a manos de uno u otro bando (que me da igual), aprovechó un pequeño local en la misma calle en la que nació Cervantes, frente a la iglesia del Cristo de Medinacelli. Está muy cerca de la puerta del Hotel Palace y ahora es parte de un bar ce cañas y tapas. Decidió vender velas para los devotos y pastelitos para los huéspedes del hotel. Ahí estaba, cada día, detrás del mostrador. Es más que probable que todos y cada una de las largas jornadas entre 1950 y 1980 estuviera preparando una forma nueva de llegar a otro cliente más. Poco a poco, con esfuerzo. A veces guardando en la cámara frigorífica los pasteles para el día siguiente y a veces partiendo con cuidado alguno por la mitad para sacar el doble de beneficio. Mi abuela no era contable pero era una guerrera.

Salió adelante. Educó a sus hijos. Compró su piso. Me dio 25 pesetas de paga en 1985 detallando que pensara dos veces en qué me lo iba a gastar. Era un ejemplo de la economía de la posguerra y la demostración empírica de lo del trabajo y la constancia.

Mi padre estaba estudiando algo parecido a económicas en Madrid allá por los años 60 y decidió, en un alarde que nunca entendí, coger a su superseñora esposa, su hija y sus sueños para hacerse quinientos kilómetros (que son miles en la época actual) para empezar de cero en la costa cantábrica. Fue contable, responsable de contabilidad, jefe de contabilidad, adjunto a gerencia y gerente 45 años después. Decía, mezcla de lo aprendido y de su propia experiencia, que el tiempo y el esfuerzo son los dos componentes de los resultados y si acaso yo aparecía algún día con un notable la única explicación posible es que no me había esforzado lo suficiente porque, como algunos que se han leído la contraportada de un libro de Coehlo, cada uno es capaz de todo si se lo propone con suficiente firmeza.

Así que un día, atontado por la tradición familiar, yo mismo me puse manos a la obra. Me esforcé y me esforcé. 22 años después sigo esforzándome cada momento sin sentir un pequeño porcentaje de todo lo que me enseñaron y me demostraron. Hace no mucho me senté a pensar en lo que pudiera ser el futuro. Me puse a ver las empresas que estaban marcando tendencia a nivel mundial. Miré los fenómenos de twitter, facebook, uber, airbnb y llegué a la conclusión de no entender nada.

No se entiende nada cuando el referente de la industria automovilística, Tesla, resulta ser la empresa con mayor crecimiento en bolsa, valiendo más que la todopoderosa Ford (vendiendo 7 millones de coches menos) y teniendo que llamar a 53mil  (de los 80mil vendidos) porque sus frenos están mal diseñados. Ojo, que es lo más importante, y perdiendo 2300 millones de euros. Es decir: la empresa que es la envidia resulta ser una máquina de perder dinero.

¿Y los demás? Uber España gana 60mil/€ (que son tres sueldos bajos). Pero a nivel mundial pierde 13000 millones. Twitter perdio 167millones de euros el año pasado. Airbnb tienen 9 (!nueve!) empleados en España y Blablacar ganó 8000€. ¿Qué puta broma es ésta?. El bar debajo de mi casa genera más trabajo que todos estos tipos.

¿De donde sacan el dinero?. Pues parece ser que como se supone que algún día ganarán dinero hay quien les da y les da para ver cuando llegan los premios. Es como invitar a alguien en un bar sin saber si acaso te hará caso, despertará contigo o quizá sea alguien con quien compartir el futuro. Mientras tanto sólo es perder dinero.

Si mi abuela o mi padre me vieran montar un negocio ruinoso desde el minuto 1 me darían collejas hasta que se me salieran los ojos. Pero cuando se habla de emprendedores y de magníficos referentes de futuro, cuando los periodistas económicos y tecnológicos se acercan a un nuevo Steve Jobs (recordemos que no era un buen informático sino un vendedor de lujo, al estilo Branson o Musk), siempre hablan del impacto social y los millones de usuarios. (Whatsapp:  billon de usuarios, cero ingresos) apostando sólo a la venta de nuestros datos como fuente de ingresos (conversaciones, intereses, uso...), pero ahí el único que gana es google y un poco facebook. Pero ninguno, ninguno, ninguno gana del producto que vende. Puede que porque el producto es una mierda o porque los clientes no están educados en pagar con cash, que es como cobraba mi abuela.

¿El futuro, entonces, es no preocuparse de la rentabilidad o la calidad del producto? ¿Vender que algún día será muy bonito y encontrar a locos que den dinero por nada?

Los dueños de Twitter, de Snapchap, de Tesla, de Uber o de Airbnb son hombres ricos sin haber ganado ni un solo euro.

No huele bien este concepto de economía. No.
Bueno, sí: huele a burbuja, a vacío.

Claro que si yo voy al banco contando que voy a perder cientos de millones de euros durante años se consideraría lógico que me den patadas en el culo hasta ponérmelo morado. 

Es todo muy loco pero lo curioso es que ES ASI.

No importa el producto, la calidad o el beneficio. Cuidado con el futuro de eso porque tendremos malos productos, de calidad infima y en empresas ruinosas. Eso sí, todo muy colaborativo.


Pd: no hablo de microsoft porque ellos hacen un sistema o una aplicación y te la venden, te la cobran y a otra cosa, butterfly.
Pd2: y todas esas empresas, al estilo swatch o ikea, que venden lo que se ha vendido siempre pero comosi lo hubieran inventado sus publicistas, tampoco.

Hacer algo bueno y mejor parece una utopìa. Quiero tener un negocio que sea como un buen directo donde todo encaja. Lo quiero todo.

          Comment on Tesla Inc (The Battery Company) Is In Big, Very Bad Trouble by Johnny   
The Bloomberg's article should be renamed to "China Is About to Bury the Oil Industry in Batteries." This won't affect Elon at all. In fact he wants to build 10-20 gigafactories. If China can go it well and produce cheaper, better batteries, then Elon won't need to build more, but I doubt that China's batteries will be as advanced as Tesla's at any given time. So the effect here is that there will be so much more cheaper batteries available around the world. That would lead to faster adoption of solar panels and other forms of energy. So the one that is really in trouble is the oil industry.

          Historic Mexico City swim club gets a second life as art gallery   
A photography display by the Los Angeles-based artist Olivia Barrionuevo is installed in the now empty pool
Artists in Mexico City have taken over a disused historic pool and turned it into a pop-up art gallery, months before the facility is due to be torn down to make way for a new mixed-use development.

Formerly known as Club Condesa, the pool opened in 1940 to house Mexico Citys first womens-only swim club and became co-ed in the 1960s, counting an estimated 250 members at its peak. But maintaining the property at Tlaxcala 103 became nearly impossible for its owners as larger fitness centers moved into the now trendy neighbourhood of Roma Sur. The club closed in 2015, and the building was bought by a group of private developers including Antonio Cordero, who wanted to repurpose the space before it is torn down. Together, Cordero and the curator Angelica Montes created the exhibition Thresholds of Time, which includes the work of nearly 50 local and international artists.

For Montes, the show is a way for more people to see art in Mexico, a country known for its history of public art by Mexican muralists like Diego Rivera and David Alfaro Siqueiros. If there is a protagonist here, it is art and space, Montes says in an interview at the club, where communal spaces like the locker room and the pool are now used to display works. Our idea is that art belongs to the people. Art should be outside of galleries, outside of museums.

Working in a space that once served as an epicentre for women in Mexico was also a source of inspiration for Montes. They were revolutionaries in their time for the way they thought, the curator says, noting the club's facilities opened to women even before they gained the right to vote in 1947.

Montes said that the work on show functions as both an homage to the swim club and as a farewell. Mexico City is alive because it devours places and turns them into other things, Montes says. Its inevitable that the city grows and transforms and topples to create room for something else. But the goal of the exhibition is for the clubs history not to fall into oblivion, she adds. "You can't forget a place like this, it can't go unnoticed," she says.

Following on this theme, a variety of the works are made using recycled materialsincluding doors, windows, oil drums, and gas tanks and frequently incorporate the swim clubs features and furniture. These include an electrical switchboard painted with a portrait of the inventor Nikola Tesla by Rafael Cauduro, an artist known for his prominent mural on Mexicos Supreme Court building; a landscape painted on lockers by another local artist Mauricio Vega; and a photography display in the now empty pool itself by the Los Angeles-based artist Olivia Barrionuevo, who recently had a parallel installation in Basel airport in Switzerland. Valerian Lenud, a street artist from France who has created a stencil work on the grounds in collaboration with the Mexican artist Dario Romo, says he was attracted to the ephemeral quality of the space and exhibition. We made a work that at some point will stop existing as well.

The exhibition, which has attracted some 2,500 visitors to invitation-only events since it opened on 15 May, will run until December. From 29 June, the space will to the public on Thursdays from 11am to 6pm, with guided tours available by appointment on Fridays and Saturdays.

          Comment on Grid-Level Electricity Storage – NOAA’s Critique of the WWS Vision by E.M.Smith   
I see you have accumulated a zelot here in Renewableguy. Best stock up on koolaid repellant... Charging in a dense urban area like Chicago? Sure, lots of outlets. Now go try driving I-5 from Sacramento to L.A. There are places where even getting gas at night is something you plan... Next, take I-10 from L.A. to Dallas. Mind the 240 or so mile stretch of no gas sations near Van Horn... No buildings at all, really. Electric chargers? Good luck with that... you will be doing the "beg a socket" and 10 hour charges across that desert. Now I have nothing against electric cars, PROVIDED there is zero subsidy anywhere in the the electric market... Heck, I'd like to have one for the 80% of my trips around town.. except that the "renewables" mandate for California utilities has lifeline rates driven up to 19 cents /kW-hr and tariffs filed for half a buck soon. Over the life of the car I can expect costs starting over double yours and then doubling again. So the True Believes want ecar subsidy rates, paid for by everyone else... So do be sure to remove the subsidy bias from "renewable" rate structures and ecar tariffs. Now I don't know the present costs, and I hope Tesla has fixed the problem, but at least a few folks have "bricked" their Tesla. They can not drop below a minimum charge or the battery becomes useless. They keep track of each cell status and history. Depower that computer in a full discharge, it forgets everything and declares the battery dead. One guy left his float charging in the garage and jetted off to Europe. Returning a few months later to a brick. A utility power issue had tripped the house breakers and the self discharge rate did the rest. $40,000 of new battery later, it ran again. Tesla said they were working to get that down to $10,000 but I don't know how close they are now. Repair is done via shipping the car back to Tesla. Arranging that from Van Horn left as an exercise for the student... Oh, and like laptops, after a few years (max couple of thousand charge cycles) you get to buy a new battery anyway. Start saving you $2000/year now... So please realize the warts on your polyanna POV. To not recognize the very real economic and engineering issues leads to being seen as inexperienced.... Now a Ford Fiesta sized e-car with a nickle-iron 50 year battery and 100 mile range for under $20,000 new; I'd be happy to buy one. Just as long as I could charge it with 5 cent/kW-hr nuclear electricity... It would never leave town, but would cover 80% of my needs and extend the life of my old Mercedes Diesel that cruises wonderfully for 450 miles on a tank, fillable everywhere. I've taken it to L.A. and back more than I can count, and to Texas and Florida and back dozens of times. Even to Chicago a few times... (watch out for the long empty bits from Colorado through Kansas and keep fueled up at night).

          2016 is the year the EV stops being a boys' toy   

In the first weekend of April 2016, the seeds that Tesla Motors has sown with its über-desirable electric cars with their über-pricetags, germinated in an explosive way with the pre-sales of its moderately priced Model 3.

In a matter of days, a quarter milion people had signed up for a car that is more than a year away from being built, in a mass release of pent-up desire that has been carefully built ever since the Model S hit its pre-sales.

Among a certain circle of males (and not a few females as well), the adulation of all things Tesla is palpable. They don't want to hear about the BMW i3 or even its i8. Forget about the pedestrian (sorry) Nissan Leaf. Nobody wants to hear you tell of the European carmakers who are all readying electric cars for their lineups a few years from now. It's Tesla, and only Tesla that exists for them.

And that's okay.

In soccer, the guy who scores the goal gets the glory. More often than not, there's a whole team behind (literally behind) him who's made the goal possible. But once in a while the effort is dominated by a single player. It's like that this time. And the whole team reaps the benefits.

Sure, a coal-powered electric car is worse for human health and the climate than a car running on gasoline or diesel. But you can't have a clean energy transition without a clean transportation transition.

The latter must include a return to human transportation (biking and walking, which are NOT "alternative" transportation modes, but primary ones), as well as shared transportation like buses, subways and rideshares. What vehicles are running around must eventually be electric. And the electricity must come from low-carbon sources.

In that respect, it is heartening that the immense potential for offshore wind in the US is finally being given a chance. In response to continued and mounting public pressure, offshore drilling and fracking has been called off the Florida Everglades, off the coast of California, and indeed all up and down the East Coast.

Instead, the Federal Bureau of Ocean Energy Management has opened a section of its marine holdings off the shore of Long Island for the building of a wind farm. Since offshore wind has the potential to supply the US with all of its electricity several times over, this is a great development.


To me, this is the really heady news of the past few weeks. Because when a quarter million new Tesla owners start to wonder where their juice is coming from, they will want to push for more of that clean power. Well, the way is paved for them. So to speak.

Offshore wind mills, I say, not offshore oil spills.

          Cover Reveal for The Lost Imperials Series by Tyler H Jolley and Sherry D. Ficklin   

TWO AMAZING COVER REVEALS, ONE AWESOME SERIES— THE LOST IMPERIALS.

By Tyler H. Jolley and Sherry D. Ficklin



ABOUT THE LOST IMPERIALS SERIES: 


In a battle for control of the time stream, the past and the future will collide, either saving mankind—or destroying it.

The Tesla Institute stands on one side of the battle. Controlled by the mind of one of the greatest inventors in history, the Institute recruits gifted, young time travelers called Rifters. Those who survive his training are sent into history with the mission to preserve the time stream, recruit more of their kind, and better humanity through subtle, controlled event manipulation.

Standing in the way are the Hollows, a rogue group of Rifters who have vowed to put an end to the Tesla Institute—at all costs. They steal, cheat, and bend history to their own ends. Using children stolen from time as their personal armies, they fight not only for control of time itself, but also for self-preservation.

BOOK #1—EXTRACTED — IS ALREADY AVAILABLE. FIND OUT WHY IT'S A BEST-SELLER! 

"Steampunk and time travel combine to provide pizazz in this series opener about a long-lost royal brother and sister, the surviving Romanovs. Ficklin and Jolley handle the rather intricate plotline well, populating the time stream with interesting characters that pop up in various unexpected places. The steampunk scenario adds a great deal of zest to the proceedings, with top hats, leather corsets and a variety of steam-driven contrivances providing set dressing. Kids who pick it up won't encounter much real history, but they'll be reading it for fun anyway. (Steampunk. 12 & up)" ~Kirkus Reviews

ABOUT RIVEN:



Release Date: May 5, 2015
Publisher: Clean Teen Publishing

What should be a routine mission leaves Ethan with a serious problem. He’s fractured—a break between mind and body that leaves him at the mercy of his Rifter abilities, which are quickly tearing him apart. He will have to trust the only person who might know how to fix him, a mysterious Rifter named Stewart Stills, who seems to have a special connection with the time stream.

Forced to face his dark past and a decision he may never forgive himself for, he will be trained unlike any of the others, to become a true guardian for time. If he accepts, it will mean leaving everyone he loves behind. If he refuses, time itself could unravel. After a glimpse of the dark future awaiting them all, he will have to choose between destiny and desire. Will he rise up and take his place as a defender of the natural order, or will he watch as all of time burns at the hands of the girl he loves?

Welcome to the time war.


ABOUT PRODIGAL:



Release Date: May 5, 2015
Publisher: Clean Teen Publishing

Stein has been with the Hollows for as long as she can remember. Taken as a child, she has no memories of her past—and that’s always been fine by her. Until the day she stumbles across a hidden journal containing the devastating truth about her paternity. Now everything she thought she knew—and everyone she thought she could trust—has changed. The truth about who she is and where she came from is a secret so deep, it will rock the Hollows and the Tesla Institute alike.

During a test to verify her bloodlines, Stein makes a terrible discovery. She is carrying a rare genetic mutation that is slowly killing her. Unsure who to turn to and running out of time, she has no choice but to turn to Tesla—her most hated enemy—for help. But can she trust the man who she’s been fighting against her whole life, or will she end up another piece in his deadly game of cat and mouse with the people who betrayed her so long ago?

          Ford to Open Palo Alto Research Lab this Summer   
Car manufacturers are slowly but surely morphing into technology companies and it's not just upstart manufacturers like Tesla who are trying to piggyback on Silicon Valley's deep pool of engineering and academic talent. General Motors, for example, already has offices in Palo Alto and today, Ford announced that it has also chosen Palo Alto for its new Silicon Valley lab. The company already has research labs in Dearborn, MI; Aachen, Germany; Nanjing, China and Tel Aviv, Israel. The lab will be lead by TJ Giuli, a Ford research engineer and Stanford-alumni who has been working on the forefront of the company's tech efforts for the last few years.  The company hopes that the new lab will "serve as a hub for independent technology projects and identification of new research investments and partners located along the West Coast." It also hopes to develop deeper partnerships with local tech firms and universities. Ford is, for example, already a member of Stanford's Automotive Research at Stanford (CARS) affiliate program. Ford will hire Silicon Valley talent for its new offices, but also plans to rotate-in engineers from its other locations to work on new in-car technologies and ideas. The company first announced its plans to open a Silicon Valley office earlier this year, but at that time, it hadn't chosen a location yet. According to the city of Palo Altos' economic development manager Thomas Fehrenbach, the city itself reached out to Ford when it heard about Ford's plans, though chances are that it was already pretty high on Ford's list of possible locations.

          Kayaking in the Aftermath   

Travis Easely paddling past grounded fishing vessels in the Industrial Seaway


Kayaks are probably the safest boats in which to navigate Mississippi's coastal waters at the moment. There's an unbelievable amount of debris hidden beneath the surface almost everywhere that would pose a serious threat to most larger vessels.

I did some exploring by kayak over the Thanksgiving holiday week, launching solo from Ocean Springs harbor one day and paddling up Davis Bayou and then over to Deer Island and back on one day trip. Then Travis Easley and I made a loop trip around Bernard Bayou to the Industrial Seaway and down to Big Lake and back to our starting point.

Deer Island appears normal when viewed over the horizon from the mainland, but once ashore it is easy to see the effects of Katrina. The beaches are littered with debris from mainland homes and many trees are down in the predominately pine forests that cover the island. A lot of beach erosion has occured as well. Overall, however, the island hasn't changed in a significant way and will certainly recover. I only explored the southeast end on this trip. Travis Easley and I went back Sunday with my Necky Tesla and his new Current Designs 14-footer and planned to launch from the beach near the former location of the Biloxi Yacht Club. We had unloaded the boats when we were informed by a Biloxi police officer that it was a $500 fine to drive around a barricade and park on the south side of highway 90. There were no signs to this effect. Thankfully, he let us off on the condition that we load up and leave immediately, so our plan to circumnavigate Deer Island was dropped and we did the Bernard Bayou loop from the park at Switzer Road instead.

Although most have been removed by now, there are still plenty of wrecked commercial and pleasure boats along the Seaway and in the bayou. We paddled past sunken boats and destroyed houses, but found the marsh and woods surprisingly intact in this area. I hope to get out to the barrier islands and to the lower Pascagoula River soon. The purpose of these day paddles is to take photographs and gather observations for an article about what was lost here to be published in an upcoming issue of Sea Kayaker magazine.
          How Do We Know Driverless Cars Are Safe? Google Says ‘Trust Us’   



Driverless cars are on the road now – Google’s fleet has logged about 700,000 miles of autonomous driving – and the California DMV will be issuing regulations in a matter of weeks allowing self-driving cars to be sold to the public, possibly setting the regulatory pattern for the rest of the country (video). Google has predicted 2017 for first commercial availability, while Nissan and Mercedes say it will be 2020. The cars are highly complex systems whose sheer quantity of software surely exceeds the hundred million lines of source code in today’s non-autonomous vehicles. They weigh thousands of pounds and hurtle down public roads – robots with human payloads. But how will we know they’re safe?
Google’s answer at DMV workshops in March 2014 and May 2013 was, essentially, “trust us” (video, video, video). The company’s representative, Ron Medford, said Google would “self-certify” the car’s roadworthiness and then the DMV could take it for a test drive (video) akin to what a human driver undergoes today (video, video, video, video). “That the company … [is] ready to submit its vehicle for [DMV] testing is kind of the proof that it’s ready,” he said, and argued against any more detailed scrutiny than that (video, video).
This is the same Google that so betrayed customers’ trust that it’s under twenty years of outside privacy monitoring, imposed by a consent decree which it later allegedly violated (leading to a record multi-million dollar settlement). Yet the company’s answer is to supplement “trust us” with nothing more than a simple road test – even though computer experts agree that such testing is no way to verify safety-critical software.
A Chrysler representative, Steve Siko, also endorsed self-certification (video). “It’s not like any manufacturer is trying to skirt around some safety rules,” said another Chrysler rep, Ross Good (video). From VW, Barbara Wendling also sang the self-certification tune (video), and said she had “no worries that anybody in the industry is going to put an unsafe product into California or any other state” (video).
Really?
That comment ignores GM’s defective ignition switch that may have killed 309 people (the company says it’s 13) – almost 15 million vehicles recalled to-date amid criminal probes and possible cover-ups – and Toyota’s deadly accelerator pedals (89 fatalities, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration), to name only two of the unsafe products automakers have in fact put on the market in recent years.
Nevada accepted Google’s “trust us” gambit (pdf, p. 13) but like that state’s slot machines, it’s a bad bet. Google’s approach is not good enough, because the tech company and automakers have already demonstrated they’re not trustworthy and because experts acknowledge that complex software can’t be adequately verified simply by testing it. That’s especially true of safety-critical hard real-time systems. “Hard” means that the system must respond in timely fashion to avoid devastating consequences, like an automobile crash.
Indeed, a mere “road test” is not how validation works in other safety-critical applications like medical device software or avionics hardware and software
The Right Way to Validate Software
As the Food and Drug Administration says, “Typically, testing alone cannot fully verify that software is complete and correct. In addition to testing, other verification techniques and a structured and documented development process should be combined to ensure a comprehensive validation approach. Except for the simplest of programs, software cannot be exhaustively tested. Generally it is not feasible to test a software product with all possible inputs, nor is it possible to test all possible data processing paths that can occur during program execution.”
And who should do the verifying? The FDA addresses this too: “Validation activities should be conducted using the basic quality assurance precept of ‘independence of review.’ Self-validation is extremely difficult. When possible, an independent evaluation is always better, especially for higher risk applications.”
Not surprisingly, the agency requires pre-market submission of very detailed flowcharts, design documents and the like (apparently including source code) for devices that present a risk of death or major injury.
Avionics is even more stringent. In the U.S., knowledgeable reviewers called Designated Engineering Representatives or DERs are certified and appointed by the Federal Aviation Administration. Some DERs (Consultant DERs) are independent contractors while others, although they work for the manufacturers (Company DERs), are part of a culture where they are deemed to owe their loyalty to the FAA rather than their employers; in fact, DERs are appointed to represent the FAA and are legally required to maintain objectivity (pdf, p. 21). Europe uses outside testing labs.
In both jurisdictions, detailed documents govern the certification of in-the-air avionics software and hardware (in particular, custom devices like FPGAs, PLDs and ASICs) as well as ground-based avionics software. Test plans, source code, design documents and more are required to be submitted, and the programming process itself has to meet certain standards. Every line of safety-critical software code has to be justified – traced back to its rationale – and has to be executed during testing.
The difficulty with the avionics approach is that it enormously increases costs and product development time. In the automotive sphere, that would mean people continuing to die from human-caused accidents – which is about 95% of the annual 32,000 fatal accidents today (pdf, see pp. 24-25) – while we waited for (hopefully-safer) driverless cars to emerge from testing. It’s a real issue, but there has to be some compromise between “trust us” and hyper-punctilious verification.
You don’t have to be a high-tech expert to understand the concept. Self-certification is not even the way it works when you want to add a roof deck to your house. At least in urban areas, you have to show your plans to the city or county building department first (and the plans are usually drawn up by an architect or engineer who passed a state licensing exam; not so with software). There’s a physical inspection after the deck is built.
Google wants to skip the first step and jump to the second, but why should we regulate robocars less rigorously than roof decks?
Certification of driverless car software and hardware by an independent testing company, coupled with DMV review and multiple test drives, is the best way to give the public confidence that these cars are as safe as can be. I’m well aware – as a former programmer and as a lawyer who has represented software vendors – that source code is sensitive. But so is public safety. Ultimately, meaningful certification will be good for the driverless car industry as well as for the public.
At the DMV sessions, a Bosch representative named Soeren Kammel endorsed third-party certification and re-certification when a product is updated (video, video). A consumer advocate, John Simpson of Consumer Watchdog, focused on privacy issues (video), which are also critical, but he didn’t explore certification.
Google declined to comment for this article and the DMV told me the issue would be “addressed in the regulations when we release them … later this summer.” They’re writing the regulations now: you can weigh in by clicking here to email the DMV (and cc me).
Bugs are Inevitable
Bear in mind, there will be bugs in the software and flaws in the hardware, as even Google admits (“should it fail .. we want to reduce the impact”; “there will be some failures,” video). That’s the nature of electronic hardware and especially of software: we’ve been designing and building physical structures for thousands of years – bridges, for instance, for 3300 years – whereas even the term “software engineering” is less than 50 years old and the actual discipline of rigorous programming, in any meaningful sense, is younger still.
As the FDA says, “because of its complexity, the development process for software should be even more tightly controlled than for hardware, in order to prevent problems that cannot be easily detected later in the development process.” (They put that in bold, not me.)
Programming is still a dicey business, in other words, as is obvious to anyone with a smartphone that crashes, overheats or drains its battery without reason. (And that’s not to mention the prospect of your phone being hacked.) I have just such a phone, a Samsung Galaxy S4, which initially worked quite well. Now, not so well. It runs on Android software written by Google.
Google engineers and programmers are smart, but they can’t escape humankind’s collective immaturity of knowledge around the task of engineering software that is safe, reliable, error free and resistant to malicious attack. These cars will kill people, albeit hopefully many fewer than the number of people killed today by human drivers.
And sometimes when they do maim or kill, the cars will have to make ethical decisions: if three pedestrians dash across the road one after the other right in front of a car, should the car jam on the brakes knowing it will hit and kill two of them, or should it swerve and kill only the third one instead? In the latter case, fewer lives will be lost but the pedestrian it kills wouldn’t have died had the car not affirmatively decided to swerve. Passively kill two people or deliberately kill a different person? Kill one pedestrian or swerve into another car and perhaps only injure its occupants?
There are many variants of this so-called “trolley problem” and the car’s software will have to make hard choices. These are moral dilemmas that society – government regulators – should at least have input into. They’re not decisions that Google programmers should make alone at their white boards.
Those programmers and their colleagues – engineers, designers, businesspeople and others – are brilliant, and they appear to have the most ambitious goals – and be the furthest along – of any company working on autonomous cars. Google has brought the world some great products, and a commercially available self-driving car, although it will bring enormous dislocations, will bring enormous benefits (pdf) as well, if it’s safe.
Why Google and Automakers Can't be Trusted
Notwithstanding Google’s old “don’t be evil” motto, the  company has overreached and been slapped for it just like any other large company. In 2010, it deployed privacy-busting features in Google Buzz, which resulted in the FTC imposing an astonishing twenty years of outside privacy audits starting in 2011. Yet the following year, Google allegedly violated that already-unprecedented consent decree and ended up paying a record $22.5 million settlement. And in 2008-2010, the company made an allegedly “intentional mistake“ by sniffing personal data from WiFi routers as its cars photographed the streets, and then apparently attempted to conceal this breach of people’s privacy. The FCC fined Google $25,000 for impeding its investigation.
Google is a great company, but it’s a big company, and there isn’t a day since the era of 19th century robber barons that big companies haven’t overstepped and run roughshod, absent determined regulation.
Like most large companies, Google aggressively looks after its own interests even at the consumer’s expense. That makes “self-certify” a pretty thin answer when it comes to Google car safety – or, for that matter, privacy, since driverless cars are “data guzzlers” that will be acquiring 30 to 130 MB of external visual and other sensor data per second when in operation. (Even now, the race to control the dashboard is on.) And that’s not to mention the GPS data associated with the passengers (i.e., Google will know where you go in the physical world, not just on the Internet) and the likely cameras inside the vehicles, at least for those owned by rideshare services such as Uber, in which Google invested over a quarter-billion dollars last year.

That Uber deal is no outlier. As the Internet morphs into the Internet of Things, the company is transforming itself from an Internet giant into an enterprise with access to – and control over – the physical world. In the last seven months, Google has bought both the smart-device maker Nest and seven robotics companies including Boston Dynamics, which makes robots than can gallop at 28 mph or carry heavy payloads. One of them is even in humanoid form. Six feet tall and weighing 330 lbs., it looks like the Terminator, minus the skin. So while Google’s newest driverless cars – which omit steering wheel and pedals – were deliberately designed to look “friendly” and “cute,” this is not your father’s Google.

And Google, of course, is not the only company developing driverless cars. It's an industry-wide project, yet many automakers have an appalling disrespect for public safety: they fought seat belts, set private detectives to harass and intimidate consumer advocate Ralph Nader, and lobbied against air bags for years, delaying a mandate until 1998.
Meanwhile, also in the 1990’s, over 200 people died in crashes linked to failure of Firestone tires, but they weren’t recalled until 2000. Consumer advocates charged that both Firestone and Ford (in whose vehicles a majority of the deaths occurred) covered up the problem and failed to inform NHTSA.
Present-day behavior is no better: In March of this year, Toyota agreed to pay a record $1.2 billion criminal penalty stemming from charges that it intentionally hid information about safety defects from the public and made deceptive statements to protect its brand image. That was in addition to an earlier $48.8 million civil penalty and a litigation settlement of over a billion dollars. All were in connection with unintended acceleration: ultimately, in two separate recalls in 2009 and 2010 totaling nearly 8 million vehicles Toyota acknowledged that its gas pedals could get trapped under floor mats or that the pedals themselves could simply stick, leading to out of control vehicles. Deaths and injury were the result.
Even more ominously for driverless cars, a jury in 2013 found Toyota liable for unintended acceleration stemming from a third cause, alleged software errors. An expert on embedded systems (real-world machinery that incorporates software), Michael Barr, charged that he found 80,000 violations of software reliability programming rules in Toyota’s code (pdf, p. 29), even after an investigation by NASA (on behalf of NHTSA) had found no software cause for unintended acceleration but not ruled out the possibility either (pdf, p. 17; pdf, p. 13); a NASA engineer charged that its team was taken off the investigation prematurely. The jury awarded $3 million in compensation and was set to consider punitive damages when the case settled.
Toyota is not the only automaker with unintended acceleration problems. Just last weekend, NHTSA disclosed that it’s investigating 360,000 Nissan cars for the same problem, in this case allegedly caused by improper design of a trim panel. Last month, Ford recalled 1.4 million vehicles, for defects including loss of power steering and (as with Toyota) floor mats that can interfere with the accelerator.
That followed a recall by Ford of about 700,000 vehicles for software bugs that could cause airbags to delay inflation and – a separate problem on the same vehicles – doors that could come open while the car is moving. Also last month, Chrysler recalled almost 500,000 SUVs because cracks in a circuit board could lead to a faulty signal that caused the transmission to shift by itself from Park into Neutral. Toyota too had a software recall, in 2010, involving anti-lock brake software and another last month, involving airbag electronic control unit software.
Also on the airbag front, chemical and mechanical defects have been disclosed in the last several weeks in airbags from a company called Takata, resulting in recalls or halted sales by eight car companies: Ford, Chrysler, Honda, Mazda, Nissan, Toyota, BMW – and GM, a company which this year has recalled over 28 million cars in about 30 separate recalls.
The most noted of those recalls, of course, have been for an ignition switch problem. In the last five months the company has recalled about 14.8 million vehicles (6.6 million in the last several months plus 8.2 million yesterday) from model years 2003-2011 because the ignition switch can turn off while the car is in motion, disabling the power steering, power brakes and airbags. According to the government, GM knew of the problem since at least November 2009, but didn’t tell NHTSA for almost 4-1/2 years. The New York Times reports that GM’s knowledge goes much further back: a GM engineer approved the faulty design in 2002 before the car was released, even though the part maker said the switch didn’t meet specifications. GM investigated later complaints, but closed the inquiry in 2005 because “none of the solutions represents an acceptable business case.”
Four months later came the first death tied to the ignition switch.
The following year, the same GM engineer allegedly signed off on a redesigned switch intended to be safer, but there was no recall for another eight years. Last year, the engineer claimed under oath in a wrongful death suit that he had not authorized the change (notwithstanding a signed document to the contrary); he told Congressional investigators in May that he didn’t remember.
Also last month, the company paid a record $35 million civil penalty even as the Secretary of Transportation said “what G.M. did was break the law.” According to NHTSA, GM employees were actually trained in how to obscure safety problems. Documents released last week by a Congressional panel reportedly show that a current top GM executive knew of the problem as far back as 2005. Criminal, congressional, SEC and state investigations are ongoing. Hundreds of lawsuits have been filed, and a compensation plan was unveiled yesterday that could cost the company billions.
In addition, a second GM ignition switch problem has emerged: in many of the same cars with switches that could turn off while driving, it was also possible to remove the ignition key while the car wasn’t in Park or while the engine was running. A GM report said that the company knew about this in the early 2000’s but didn’t recall the cars until April of this year. Meanwhile, although NHTSA received the report in April, it wasn’t posted on the agency’s website until a reporter asked for it in June.
These are the sorts of companies that would self-certify their driverless cars.
What About the Regulators?
Not only did NHTSA delay posting the safety report, it seems to have fumbled the GM ignition switch issue from the beginning. The agency received the first complaint in 2003 but didn’t propose an investigation until 2007. Even at that, no recall occurred until 2014. Instead, despite receiving an average of two complaints per month, NHTSA repeatedly responded that “there was not enough evidence of a problem to warrant a safety investigation,” according to the New York Times. Now Congress is investigating NHTSA as well as GM.
NHTSA doesn’t only handle recalls; it’s the federal agency that issues automobile safety rules. Under California’s self-driving car law, any NHTSA regulations on the subject will preempt whatever the DMV is doing now.
Commenting on the agency’s approach to software, embedded systems expert Barr said, “NHTSA … needs to step up on software regulation and oversight. For example, FAA and FDA both have guidelines for safety-critical software design within the systems they oversee. NHTSA has nothing.” (See also pdf, p. 44.) There are techniques to reduce automotive software risks, but NHTSA doesn’t require them.
And the agency is not currently regulating driverless cars at all.
That leaves the field to the less technically-experienced, more resource-poor state DMVs. It’s not hard to play one state off against another, and that looks like what Google did with California. Although a Stanford report says that self-driving cars were “probably legal” already, the company presumably wanted more certainty, so it got Nevada to pass a driverless car law to its liking in 2011, then Florida, and then used those statutes to incite California legislators to act. Sacramento, fearful that Google’s car operation would decamp to the home of legalized gambling, passed legislation requiring the DMV to issue regulations by January 1, 2015, legalizing the cars on California roads. Gov. Jerry Brown signed the bill at Google headquarters in September 2012.
But a section of the law, CVC 38750(d)(2), requires that the regulations include “any testing, equipment, and performance standards ... that the department concludes are necessary to ensure the safe operation of autonomous vehicles on public roads, with or without the presence of a driver inside the vehicle.”
The only way to even have approximate confidence in the safety of a complex embedded system is for a knowledgeable independent third-party certification authority to review (under confidentiality agreement) the software and firmware source code, custom chip (ASIC) designs, hardware specs, design documents, flowcharts, and other technical documentation. 
The Problem with Road Testing
If you’re not a programmer, you may still be wondering why road testing is inadequate for driverless cars. Once again, the FDA explains, “One of the most significant features of software is branching, i.e., the ability to execute alternative series of commands, based on differing inputs. This feature is a major contributing factor for another characteristic of software – its complexity. Even short programs can be very complex and difficult to fully understand.”
It is hard enough to test garden variety software (say, Microsoft Word), whose operation is deterministic and does not require sophisticated judgments, involve real-time sensor inputs or perform safety-critical functions. A word processing program is comparatively straightforward, yet MS Word, for instance, still manages to be buggy.
A robocar’s software is non-deterministic, in that (a) it makes high level decisions (brake? accelerate? swerve? turn? etc.) in real time and (b) it does so in response to huge quantities of extremely complex sensory inputs representing dozens or hundreds of stationary and moving objects that are never the same twice. No matter how precisely you try to replicate a road test, something different will always happen:
● One time the sun will glint off the windshield of an opposing car and blind a sensor, perhaps causing the car the mis-steer – or maybe the sun will be at a slightly different angle that day and the problem will remain latent, ready to affect an unwary consumer.
● Maybe a splash of mud mixed with oil and gravel will fly up past the radar in the front bumper, leading the car to swerve away from an imagined obstacle – or maybe the road will be dry that day, or the mix of oil, mud and gravel just different enough that the software properly processes and ignores it.
● Maybe a journey will be long enough and the number of objects encountered large enough that a heavily-used area of memory referred to as the “stack” will overflow, with potentially catastrophic consequences. Stack overflows can be hard to debug or predict. But perhaps the road test will be too short to trigger the bug, again leaving latent a problem that will only show up when a car crashes in real-world operation.
● Perhaps one day the car will pass by a strong electrical field – say, from a power plant or even a downed wire – that evokes an electric current that modifies memory or triggers a false sensor reading, again leading to a dangerous malfunction not detected during a DMV road test.
● How vulnerable are the car’s sensors to snow, ice and mud? A fair-weather road test won’t answer that question – and we already know from the crash of Air France Flight 447 off the coast of Brazil just how deadly the consequences of sensor malfunction can be.
● Maybe one day the car will hit exactly 32 mph – a binary number that looks like this, 100000 – at precisely the same time a car in the next lane is decelerating and hits 16 mph (10000) and that confluence of zeros and velocity changes triggers some quirky bug that only appears if GPS signal is momentarily lost and a train crosses in front of the car. Of course this is a contrived example (here’s one from the real world), but the point is that software can fail for strange reasons in weird and sometimes catastrophic ways.
As the DMV assistant general counsel conducting the driverless car sessions, Brian Soublet, pointed out, there are a large number of traffic maneuvers – in his words probably too many to test (video). Even worse, there are an unbounded number of driving scenarios – combinations of maneuvers, pedestrians, cars, trucks, motorcycles, cyclists, road geometry, stop signs, traffic lights, weather conditions and more. You can’t road test all of them or even any large fraction because the test space is effectively infinite. The only way to probe them is to examine and audit the source code, and also to run the software through simulators – under the watchful eyes of DMV or third-party experts.
As a teenager, I managed to halt a “crash-proof” computer by directing it to take input from the display screen and send output to the keyboard, both of which were obviously impossible. It was a simple prank that the programmers somehow hadn’t anticipated. What pranks and scenarios will driverless car companies overlook as they turn their machines loose?
Cybersecurity and More
Yesterday’s pranks are today’s cybersecurity threats, of course, and these cars will be vulnerable. Even today, cars are at risk. Yet, John Tillman of Mercedes, Chrysler’s Good and VW’s Wendling all urged the DMV not to regulate driverless car cybersecurity (video). They didn’t feel that DMV was the right agency for the task, but had no alternative proposals.
There will be a lot of pressure for driverless car software upgrades to be transmitted wirelessly over the air (OTA), but this should only be allowed with extraordinary security. OTA mechanisms represent enormous threat vulnerability. Moreover, even under the best of circumstances, software updates are problematic, especially when the initial code is complex. It’s easy to “break something” when you’re in the process of fixing something or adding capabilities. The FDA found that 79 percent of software-related recalls in medical devices were due to defects introduced in updates, not in the original code.
There are also legal issues, because adhering to the Vehicle Code isn’t always straightforward. Soublet highlighted a left turn issue which Google acknowledged ruefully (“I can’t believe you’re bringing that up,” said Medford; video). Soublet also mentioned that obeying the speed limit on a freeway isn’t always the right thing, since it can lead to vehicles traveling too slow for traffic conditions. Here again, the decisions should be made by the DMV, not Google – and certainly not Google alone.
(Other legal issues – who’s liable for accidents, who gets the ticket and the points when a self-driving car breaks a traffic law, how will insurance work – were discussed at the DMV hearings but don’t relate to the point of this article.)
Adding to the seriousness of all of these issues – safety, ethics, privacy, cybersecurity, legal –  is software monoculture, or the presence of the same software in many vehicles. This means that failures will affect numerous people, just like a bug in MS Word affects millions of people.
Can we trust Google or car companies to protect our privacy, ensure our safety, guard against bugs, prevent cars from being weaponized into self-driving human-free suicide bombs, make ethical decisions when crashes are unavoidable, and all the rest? No, not without rigorous oversight and meaningful independent certification. 

Finally, we also have to put these cars in context. They're the first safer-yet-dangerous autonomous robots the public will encounter. There will be more -- eventually Honda's ASIMO robot will be released from the lab, ATLAS will come untethered and BigDog and other Boston Dynamics (i.e., Google) robots will be set loose, whether as helpers, packbots, monitors, security bots or more. Will we get the same answer then -- "this technology is a net good, regulators are self-interested, auditors wouldn't catch the bugs, so let the company self-certify and be done with it"?

Google plays a long game and a large one. They're aware that they may be setting a precedent for the way robots are regulated, or not.
The California DMV regulations – which may set a national and even international template (video) – will be out soon. Hopefully, they’ll be adequate to the task. Click here to tell the DMV what you think (and cc me).

          แบตเตอรี่สำรอง สำหรับบ้านและอาคาร   

Tesla บริษัทผู้ผลิตรถยนต์ไฟฟ้า ได้เริ่มติดตั้งแบตเตอรี่สำรอง Tesla Powerwall ให้กับลูกค้ากลุ่มแรกในประเทศออสเตรเลียแล้ว หลังจากที่ตลาดในประเทศออสเตรเลียถือเป็นกลุ่มตลาดหลักตลาดหนึ่งของ Powerwall ในช่วงแรกนี้  Tesla ระบุว่า แบตเตอรี่สำรองสำหรับบ้านนี้จะเพิ่มประสิทธิภาพในการใช้งานพลังงานจากแสงอาทิตย์ของบ้านเรือน ขณะเดียวกันก็สามารถสำรองไฟในกรณีฉุกเฉินได้  

Tesla มีแผนผลิตแบตเตอรี่สำรองสำหรับสำนักงานที่มีความจุมหาศาลสำหรับใช้กับธุรกิจขนาดใหญ่ยิ่งขึ้นในอนาคต นอกจากบ้านและอาคารสำนักงาน Tesla Powerwall ยังเป็นประโยชน์ต่อผู้ใช้ยานยนต์ไฟฟ้าด้วย เนื่องจากสามารถประหยัดค่าไฟและเพิ่มความยืดหยุ่นให้ผู้ใช้ โดยเฉพาะในกรณีที่รถไฟฟ้าสามารถใช้เวลากลางคืน ชาร์จแบตเตอรี่สำรองจากพลังงานแสงอาทิตย์ในระบบสำรองไฟได้

Powerwall คือแบตเตอรี่สำรองสำหรับเก็บพลังงานไฟฟ้าที่ใช้ติดตั้งในสถานที่ต่าง ตั้งแต่บ้านพักที่อยู่อาศัยไปจนถึงโรงงานขนาดใหญ่ โดยเป้าหมายหลักของ Powerwall คือเพื่อใช้งานร่วมกันแผงโซล่าเซลล์ที่ติดตั้ง ณ สถานที่นั้นๆ เพื่อเก็บพลังงานไฟฟ้าไว้ใช้ในยามที่ไม่มีแสง เพื่อให้ระบบไฟฟ้าของสถานที่นั้นสามารถอยู่ได้ด้วยตัวเองและสามารถขายพลังงานที่ผลิตคืนมาเกินความต้องการกลับไปยังระบบไฟฟ้าของเมืองได้อีกด้วย

แนวคิดของสินค้ากลุ่มแบตเตอรี่สำรองสำหรับบ้านนั้นไม่ต่างจากแบตเตอรี่สำรอง (Power Bank) หรืออุปกรณ์เก็บไฟฟ้าสำหรับชาร์จโทรศัพท์มือถือและอุปกรณ์ไอทีพกพา ที่ผ่านมา ชาวออนไลน์มักเสียบปลั๊กชาร์จไฟเก็บไว้ในแบตเตอรี่สำรอง (Power Bank) ก่อนจะพกพาขณะเดินทาง เมื่อสมาร์ทโฟนหรือแท็บเล็ตแบตเตอรี่อ่อน ก็สามารถต่อสายเคเบิลกับแบตเตอรี่สำรอง (Power Bank)เพื่อชาร์จไฟได้โดยไม่ต้องกังวลว่าสถานที่นั้นจะมีไฟฟ้าใช้งานหรือไม่
       
สำหรับโฮมแบตเตอรี่สำรอง ผู้ใช้จะสามารถเก็บไฟฟ้าไว้สำรองใช้กับบ้านได้โดยไม่ต้องกังวลกับความเสี่ยงไฟดับ จุดต่างของโฮมแบตเตอรี่สำรองกับระบบสำรองไฟทั่วไปคือการรองรับการเก็บพลังงานไฟฟ้าจากแผงโซล่าเซลล์ รวมถึงการทยอยสำรองชาร์จไฟเก็บไฟไว้ที่ชาร์ตแบตสํารอง (Power Bank) ในช่วงที่มีผู้ใช้งานน้อย ซึ่งจะทำให้ผู้ใช้ประหยัดค่าไฟได้

สำหรับแบตเตอรี่สำรอง Tesla Powerwall นั้นผู้ใช้สามารถเก็บไฟฟ้าไว้สำรองใช้กับบ้านได้โดยไม่ต้องกังวลกับความเสี่ยงไฟดับ จุดต่างของแบตเตอรี่สำรอง Tesla Powerwall กับ ระบบสำรองไฟทั่วไป คือ การรองรับการเก็บพลังงานไฟฟ้าสำรองจากแผงโซล่าเซลล์ รวมถึงการทยอยสำรองชาร์จไฟเก็บไว้ในช่วงที่มีผู้ใช้งานน้อย ซึ่งจะทำให้ผู้ใช้ประหยัดค่าไฟได้

ไม่เพียงแต่บ้าน แต่ Tesla Powerwall ยังออกแบบมาเพื่อสำหรับอาคารสำนักงานด้วย โดยความจุของแบตเตอรี่สำรองในการเก็บพลังไฟของ Tesla Powerwall แบ่งเป็นรุ่น 10 กิโลวัตต์ชั่วโมง และ 7 กิโลวัตต์ชั่วโมง ราคาก็จะอยู่ที่ประมาณ 3,500 เหรียญสหรัฐ และ 3,000 เหรียญตามลำดับ (ราวๆ 112,000 และ 96,000 บาท) ซึ่งราคานี้เป็นราคาสำหรับผู้ผลิตหรือซับพลายเออร์เท่านั้น ยังไม่รวมราคาค่าติดตั้งและการเชื่อมต่อระบบแปลงไฟอื่นๆ อีก

เทสลา (Tesla) ไม่ได้เป็นบริษัทรถรายเดียวที่เข้าสู่วงการ “โฮมแบตเตอรี่สำรอง (home battery)” หรือแบตเตอรี่สำรองสำหรับบ้าน ล่าสุดเมอร์เซเดส-เบนซ์ (Mercedes-Benz) ก็เปิดตัวสินค้าแบตเตอรี่สำรองที่ผู้ใช้จะสามารถเก็บกักพลังงานไฟฟ้าไว้ใช้ในบ้านได้ตลอดเวลา เบื้องต้นยังไม่เปิดเผยราคา แต่วางกำหนดการจัดส่งในเดือนกันยายนนี้

เบื้องต้น ธนาคารเยอรมนี Deutsche Bank ประเมินว่าธุรกิจสินค้ากลุ่มแบตเตอรี่สำรองสำหรับบ้านและสำนักงานจะเป็นแหล่งทำเงินมหาศาลในอนาคต กรณีของ Tesla คาดว่าหน่วยธุรกิจแบตเตอรี่สำรองนี้จะทำรายได้มากกว่า 4.5 พันล้านเหรียญสหรัฐต่อปี ถือเป็นตัวเลขรายได้มูลค่าสูงมากทีเดียว

          รถไฟฟ้า พลังงานแสงอาทิตย์   

หลายๆคนคงได้ชมภาพยนตร์แนววิทยาศาสตร์เกี่ยวกับโลกอนาคต ประเภท “ไซ-ไฟ”  ซึ่งบางส่วนในภาพยนตร์กำลังจะเกิดขึ้นจริงในอนาคตอันใกล้ นวัตกรรมแห่งโลกอนาคตอีกอย่างหนึ่งที่เหมือนหลุดออกมาจากนิยายวิทยาศาสตร์ คือรถไฟฟ้า พลังงานแสงอาทิตย์ ระบบขนส่งความเร็วสูงที่เรียกว่า Hyperloop ที่กำลังจะกลายเป็นความจริง เมื่อทางบริษัทเจ้าของโครงการนี้ ประกาศว่าจะเริ่มการก่อสร้างในช่วงต้นปีหน้า

โครงการรถไฟฟ้า พลังงานแสงอาทิตย์ ระบบขนส่งความเร็วสูงที่ปลอดภัย ประหยัด และเป็นมิตรต่อสิ่งแวดล้อมนี้เกิดจากการผลักดันของ “อิลอน มัส : Elon Musk” เป็นโครงการของมหาเศรษฐีเจ้าของบริษัทเทคโนโลยี SpaceX มนุษย์ที่คนมองว่าจะเป็นผู้พลิกโลก ปัจจุบันมีผู้สนใจและติดตามผลงานไม่แพ้ “สตีฟ จ็อบส์” ผู้ร่วมก่อตั้งบริษัทแอปเปิล

รถไฟฟ้า พลังงานแสงอาทิตย์ Hyperloop จะเป็นระบบขนส่งมวลชนชนิดใหม่ที่มีความเร็วสูงกว่า 1,200 กิโลเมตรต่อชั่วโมง ด้วยการวิ่งผ่านท่อสุญญากาศขนาดใหญ่ โดยผู้โดยสารจะนั่งในตู้แคปซูล จะใช้พลังงานแสงอาทิตย์ เป็นมิตรต่อสิ่งแวดล้อม พร้อมทั้งยังใช้ความสว่างจาก โคมไฟพลังงานแสงอาทิตย์ (Solar Lamp) ระบบรถด่วน Hyperloop นี้จะใช้พลังงานแสงอาทิตย์ทั้งหมด และเชื่อว่าเมื่อโครงการแล้วเสร็จ รถด่วน Hyperloop จะสามารถสร้างสถิติโลกขึ้นมาใหม่สำหรับการเดินทางภาคพื้นดิน

ทั้งนี้ ความเร็วของรถไฟฟ้า พลังงานแสงอาทิตย์ ระบบขนส่งใหม่นี้จะช่วยร่นระยะเวลาการเดินทาง เช่น จากเมืองลอสแอนเจลิสไปยังเมืองลาสเวกัสในปัจจุบันใช้เวลาเดินทางขับรถประมาณ 4 ชั่วโมง จะร่นเวลาเหลือเพียงแค่ 30 นาที เช่นเดียวกับเมืองลอสแอน-เจลิส หรือจากกรุงเทพฯไปเชียงใหม่ใช้เวลาแค่ 40 นาทีเศษ ระบบขนส่งความเร็วสูงที่ปลอดภัย ประหยัด และเป็นมิตรต่อสิ่งแวดล้อม

รถไฟฟ้า พลังงานแสงอาทิตย์ Hyperloop คือระบบท่อขนส่งแรงดันต่ำที่ใช้ยานพาหนะคล้ายแคปซูลในการเดินทางภายในท่อนั้น ทำให้เดินทางได้เร็วเพราะมีแรงต้านทานน้อย และประหยัดพลังงาน โดยตัวท่อจะมีทั้งส่วนที่อยู่เหนือพื้นดินและอยู่ใต้ดิน โครงการท่อ Hyperloop ความยาว 8 กม.ที่จะเริ่มก่อสร้างในต้นปีหน้า เป็นโครงการทดลองเพื่อใช้ตรวจสอบด้านการรองรับผู้โดยสาร การซ่อมบำรุง และการรักษาความปลอดภัยต่างๆ

ความคืบหน้า ล่าสุดหลังจากเปิดให้นักศึกษาจากมหาวิทยาลัยชั้นนำเข้ามาแข่งขันการออกแบบรถไฟฟ้า พลังงานแสงอาทิตย์ Hyperloop มีนักศึกษาเข้าร่วมประกวดถึง 115 ทีม ปรากฏว่า 22 ทีมได้รับการคัดเลือกให้ทดสอบการออกแบบรถไฟฟ้า พลังงานแสงอาทิตย์ Hyperloop ในรัฐแคลิฟอร์เนียปลายปีนี้ ส่วนทีมที่ชนะเลิศได้แก่ ทีม MIT Hyperloop จาก Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) ที่โดดเด่นโดยเฉพาะการออกแบบ Pod Innovation

“อิลอน มัส” มองต่อไปว่าในอนาคตเทคโนโลยีพลังงานแสงอาทิตย์ (Solar)ถูกนำไปใช้กับยานพาหนะอื่นๆอีกด้วย ซึ่งไอเดียความคิดต่างๆของบุรุษหนุ่มผู้นี้มักได้ความสนใจและการสนับสนุนจากคนทั่วๆไปที่มองว่ามันจะเกิดขึ้นและใช้ได้จริงในอนาคต ต่อไปเราอาจได้เห็นรถไฟฟ้าพลังงานแสงอาทิตย์ ระบบท่อขนส่งความเร็วสูงนี้ เชื่อมต่อระหว่างเมืองต่างๆ และช่วยย่นเวลาการเดินทางลงได้หลายเท่า

นับตั้งแต่หลายๆ นวัตกรรมที่เป็นผลงานของบุรุษหนุ่มผู้นี้ นับตั้งแต่การก่อตั้งเว็บไซต์ Paypal ให้บริการชำระเงินออนไลน์ที่มีความปลอดภัยจนได้รับความน่าเชื่อถือ มีผู้ใช้บริการรับเงิน โอนเงินอย่างล้นหลามโดยเฉพาะในยุคธุรกิจดอทคอมเฟื่องฟูจนอีเบย์เว็บไซต์ผู้ให้บริการซื้อขาย ประมูลสินค้าออนไลน์ซื้อกิจการไปมูลค่าถึง 1,500 ล้านดอลลาร์สหรัฐฯ

ที่โดดเด่นในปัจจุบันก็คือ การผลิตรถยนต์สปอร์ตใช้พลังงานไฟฟ้า “Tesla” ที่กำลังได้รับความสนใจในปัจจุบันว่าจะเป็นทางเลือกแทนการใช้น้ำมันในอนาคตอันใกล้ เช่น โคมไฟโซล่าเซลล์ (Solar Lamp) รวมไปถึงรถยนต์พลังงานแสงอาทิตย์ และตู้เก็บไฟฟ้าสำรองเหมือนเพาเวอร์แบงก์ขนาดใหญ่เพื่อใช้ไฟฟ้าในบ้าน ล้วนแต่เป็นสิ่งที่น่าติดตามทั้งสิ้น.

          เทคโนโลยีใหม่ล่าสุด กระจกมองข้าง   

กระจกมองข้างของรถยนต์กำลังเป็นอุปกรณ์ที่ใกล้จะตกรุ่นหมดสมัยไปอีกอย่างหนึ่งแล้ว แถมยังถูกดูว่า เป็นของถ่วงความเจริญ ด้วยเหตุที่มันยื่นออกจากตัวรถไปต้านลม ซ้ำยังอาจสร้างอันตราย เมื่อเวลาเอารถเข้าจอดในที่แคบ ราวกับคนทำท่าเป็นนักเลงเดินกางข้อศอกเข้าไปกลางฝูงชน

ทุกวันนี้บริษัทรถยนต์หลายแห่งต่างใช้ระบบกล้องจิ๋ว (Mini DVR) เป็นกล้องถ่ายวีดิโอมาติดตั้งใช้แทนกระจกมองข้าง ช่วยให้ไม่ดูมันเหมือนเป็นหูกางๆ ของมิกกี้ เมาส์ไป ทางบริษัทผู้ผลิตได้เรียกกันว่า “กระจกดิจิตอล” ช่วยลดเสียงจากภายนอก และยังลดการเกิดก๊าซคาร์บอนไดออกไซด์จากการที่มันเป็นตัวถ่วงเพราะต้านลม จึงช่วยให้รถกินน้ำมันน้อยลงไปด้วย

รถยนต์เบนซ์ (Benz) ซีแอลเอสรุ่นใหม่ ได้ติดตั้งใช้อยู่แล้ว โดยติดกล้องจิ๋ว (Mini DVR) เป็นกล้องถ่ายวีดิโอ โตเท่านิ้วหัวแม่มือไว้ 2 ข้างรถแทนกระจกมองข้างเดิม ถ่ายส่งภาพมายังจอติดอยู่ที่บนแผงหน้าปัดรถ เพราะกล้องจิ๋ว (Mini DVR)จะมองเห็นกว้างกว่ากระจกมองข้าง จึงทำให้ผู้ขับขี่จะมองไม่เห็นเพราะจุดบอดอีกต่อไป

กล้องจิ๋ว (Mini DVR) ทั้งยังได้ประโยชน์แทนกระจกมองข้าง เวลาถอยหลังรถอีกด้วย กล้องจิ๋ว (Mini DVR) ที่ช่วยทำให้ผู้ขับขี่บันทึกเหตุการณ์บนท้องถนน ไม่ว่าจะเป็นขณะขับขี่หรือจอดรถ เพื่อเพิ่มความปลอดภัย และช่วยทำให้ผู้ขับขับรถได้สะดวกสบายยิ่งขึ้น

ส่วนอีกค่ายก็ไม่น้อยหน้าค่ายบีเอ็ม (BMW) ทางด้านของค่ายรถหรูจากยุโรปรายนี้ได้เผยโฉมค่ายรถยนต์ BMW i8 Mirrorless Concept พัฒนากล้องจิ๋ว (Mini DVR)ใช้แทนกระจกมองข้าง รถต้นแบบที่มีความเหมือนกับ i8 ที่ออกจำหน่ายในตลาดปัจจุบันทุกประการ หากแต่เพียงว่า เจ้า BMW i8 Mirrorless Concept คันนี้ไม่มีกระจกมองข้าง แต่ได้ถูกแทนที่ด้วยกล้องจิ๋ว (Mini DVR) ตัวเล็กๆ แทน ฉายภาพไร้จุดบอด

โดยกล้องจิ๋ว (Mini DVR) นั้นจะมีทั้งหมด 3 ตัวด้วยกัน แบ่งเป็นกระจกมองข้างฝั่งละ 1 ตัว และอยู่ที่กระจกบานหลังอีก 1 ตัว โดยกล้องทั้งหมดนี้จะทำงานร่วมกันเพื่อส่งภาพ panoramic มาให้ผู้ขับขี่ดูที่กระจกมองหลัง โดยทางทีมพัฒนานั้นบอกว่า กล้องจิ๋ว (Mini DVR) ที่ติดตั้งไว้นี้สามารถถ่ายทอดภาพได้แบบไร้จุดบอดใดๆ ทั้งสิ้นกันเลยทีเดียว

ค่ายรถหรู BMW ยังเคลมต่อด้วยว่า การถอดกระจกมองข้างออกนั้นช่วยในการปรับปรุง aerodynamics ของรถได้ดีขึ้น ทั้งช่วยลดน้ำหนัก เพราะกระจกมองข้างนั้นเต็มไปด้วยอุปกรณ์มากมาย ทั้งมอเตอร์ ไฟเตือน ไฟเลี้ยว และอื่นๆ  แต่ว่าหากเป็นกล้องจิ๋ว (Mini DVR) ดังกล่าวทีใช้ กระจก Gorilla เคลือบสารกันโคลน และติดตั้งตัวฉีดน้ำระบบล้างหน้ากล้องทุกตัวมาด้วย  คุณไม่ต้องกังวลเรื่องที่ว่าจะต้องไปเช็ดทำความสะอาดบ่อยๆ

เรียกได้ว่าเป็นการพัฒนาไปอีกขั้นสำหรับรถยนต์บนท้องถนน ล่าสุดค่ายรถชั้นนำของโลก เตรียมยื่นเรื่องยกเลิกกฎรถยนต์ต้องติดตั้งกระจกมองข้างในสหรัฐฯแล้ว ปีผ่านมามีรายงานว่าค่ายรถยนต์ยักษ์ใหญ่ อาทิ เทสล่า มอเตอร์ และ สหพันธ์ผู้ผลิตรถยนต์ (Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers) ที่นำโดย โตโยต้า, เจเนรัลมอเตอร์ และ โฟล์คสวาเกน เตรียมยื่นเรื่อง ต่อสำนักงานความปลอดภัยบนทางหลวงสหรัฐ ให้ยกเลิกกฏหมายรถยนต์ในประเทศสหรัฐฯ ที่ต้องติดตั้งกระจกมองข้างทั้งสองด้าน โดยใช้เทคโนโลยีกล้องจิ๋ว (Mini DVR) มาแทน

สำหรับการพัฒนานี้เพื่อปูทางไปสู่เทคโนโลยีใหม่ของรถยนต์ในอนาคต โดยใช้เทคโนโลยีกล้องจิ๋ว (Mini DVR) ส่งภาพมาในตัวรถแทนกระจกข้าง เพื่อเพิ่มประสิทธิภาพทัศนวิสัยรอบตัวรถ นอกจากนี้ยังได้ประโยชน์เรื่องหลักอากาศพลศาสตร์ ทำให้เพิ่มความเร็วสูงสุด หากติดตั้งเทคโนโลยีกล้องจิ๋ว (Mini DVR)ในรถทั้งหมดผลวิจัยชี้ว่าลดอัตราสิ้นเปลืองน้ำมันประมาณ 9 ล้านลิตรต่อปี และสามารถสร้างสรรค์ดีไซน์ใหม่ ๆ ให้แก่รถได้อีกด้วย

อย่างไรก็ตามบรรดาค่ายรถต่างๆ ยังเผยแผนให้เทคโนโลยีกล้องจิ๋ว (Mini DVR) ข้างตัวรถแทนกระจกมองข้าง  เริ่มเป็นอุปกรณ์มาตราฐานในปี 2018 จากข้อมูลทั้งหมดนี้คงชี้ชัดแล้วว่าเทคโนโลยีกล้องข้างตัวรถกำลังให้ชาวโลกจะได้เริ่มใช้กันในเร็ววัน แน่นอนว่าเทคโนโลยีใหม่กล้องมองข้างนี้ ได้ถูกทดสอบและทดลองติดตั้งใช้งานในรถรุ่นใหม่บ้างแล้วเช่น Volkswagen XL1 และ Tesla Model X crossover เป็นต้น

          รถยนต์ไฟฟ้า ราคาถูก   

ปัจจุบันรถยนต์ไฟฟ้า อย่าง Tesla S ยังดูเหมือนเป็นสินค้าตลาดเฉพาะกลุ่มขนาดเล็ก(Niche Market) สำหรับหมู่คนรวยและผู้หลงไหลคลั่งไคล้ในเทคโนโลยีใหม่ๆ แต่ท่านรู้หรือไม่ว่าในอีกไม่เกิน 10 ปีข้างหน้า มันจะกลายเป็นเรื่องปกติที่จะขับรถยนต์ไฟฟ้าราคาถูก และแปลกประหลาดมากหากท่านยังขับรถยนต์เข้าไปเติมน้ำมันในสถานีบริการน้ำมัน

จากรายงานการศึกษาล่าสุดโดยนิตยสาร Nature Climate Change ล่าสุดปีนี้ ได้ทำการศึกษารายงานระหว่างปี 2007 ถึงปี 2014 จำนวนมากกว่า 80 ฉบับเกี่ยวกับราคาของแบตเตอรี่แบบลิเธียมไอออนที่นิยมใช้ในรถยนต์ไฟฟ้าอย่าง Tesla และ Nissan พบว่าลดลงถึงร้อยละ 14 ต่อปี จากเมื่อปี ค.ศ. 2007 ที่แพงกว่า 1,000 เหรียญดอลลาร์สหรัฐฯ ต่อ กิโลวัตต์ชั่วโมง (kWh) ที่จะนำมาใช้กับรถยนต์ไฟฟ้าราคาถูก

มันจะทำให้จะเกิดการเปลี่ยนแปลงวงการอุตสาหกรรมยานยนต์ไปเลย(Paradigm Shift)  ทำให้ผู้คนหันมาใช้รถยนต์ไฟฟ้าราคาถูกเป็นส่วนใหญ่แทนรถยนต์ที่ใช้น้ำมันที่ราคาแพง เพราะนอกจากราคารถยนต์ที่ถูกลงเท่าราคารถยนต์ที่เติมน้ำมันปกติแล้ว รถยนต์ไฟฟ้าราคาถูกจะวิ่งได้ไกลมากกว่า 400 กิโลเมตรต่อ ที่ชาร์ตแบตสํารองไฟฟ้า หนึ่งครั้งและค่าใช้จ่ายต่อครั้งเพียง 300 บาท ประหยัดมากกว่าเติมน้ำมันต่อถัง และนี้คือสาเหตุหนึ่งที่ทำให้ราคาน้ำมันทั่วโลกดิ่งลงอย่างมากในช่วงหลายปีที่ผ่านมา นอกจากการค้นพบแหล่งน้ำมันมหาศาลจากหินและทรายที่สามารถสกัดได้จากหินทรายน้ำมัน

ปัจจุบันราคาแบตเตอรี่สำรอง รถยนต์นี้ถูกกว่า 300 ดอลลาร์ต่อกิโลวัตต์ชั่วโมง(kWh) หรือประมาณ 10,000 บาทต่อกิโลวัตต์ชั่วโมงเท่านั้นเอง และคาดว่า ราคาที่ผู้ผลิตรถยนต์ไฟฟ้าชั้นนำอย่าง Tesla ที่ไม่เปิดเผยในรายงานทั่วไปจะต่ำมากกว่านี้อีก ก่อนหน้านี้ก็มีการศึกษาว่า ถ้าราคาของแบตเตอรี่สำรองรถยนต์ไฟฟ้าราคาถูกต่ำกว่า 150 ดอลลาร์ต่อกิโลวัตต์ชั่วโมง(kWh) หรือคิดคร่าวๆ ว่าถ้ารถยนต์ไฟฟ้าราคาถูกใช้แบตเตอรี่ 70 kWh ราคาแบตเตอรี่ก็จะตกประมาณ 350,000 บาท

เรามาดูกันว่าสาเหตุที่ราคาแบตเตอรี่สำรองต่ำลงมากทุกปี เนื่องจาก Economies of scale หรือการลดลงของต้นทุนต่อการผลิตจำนวนมาก ต่อไปนี้การผลิตแบตเตอรี่สำรองสำหรับรถยนต์ไฟฟ้าราคาถูกกำลังจะเป็นโรงงานขนาดใหญ่ อย่างเช่นที่ Tesla กำลังสร้างโรงงาน Gigafactory ที่มลรัฐเนวาด้า ที่จะแล้วเสร็จในอีกสองปีข้างหน้า ซึ่งจะมีกำลังผลิตแบตเตอรี่สำรองได้มากกว่า 35 พันล้านวัตต์ชั่วโมง หรือGWh ต่อปี เพียงพอสำหรับใช้ในรถยนต์ไฟฟ้าราคาถูกมากกว่า 500,000 คันต่อปี

แล้วถ้าถามถึงระยะเวลาที่ใช้ในการที่ชาร์ตแบตสํารองไฟฟ้าแต่ละครั้ง ปกติถ้าชาร์จที่บ้าน จะได้ในอัตรา 100 กิโลเมตรต่อการชาร์จหนึ่งชั่วโมง ใช้เวลาประมาณ 4 ชั่วโมง ยิ่งถ้าใช้แบบ supercharge จะใช้เวลาเพียง 30 นาที ต่อระยะทาง 270 กิโลเมตร หรือประมาณ 1 ชั่วโมงเพื่อที่ชาร์ตแบตสํารองไฟฟ้าจนเต็ม

นอกจากนี้ ถ้าเราทดสอบการชนรถยนต์ไฟฟ้าราคาถูกทั้งด้านหน้าและด้านข้าง และการพลิกคว่ำ ปรากฎว่า รถยนต์ไฟฟ้าราคาถูกยังมีความปลอดภัยมากกว่ารถยนต์ทั่วไป เนื่องจากแบตเตอรี่วางเป็นฐานล่างของรถยนต์ไฟฟ้าราคาถูก ทำให้จุดศูนย์ถ่วงของรถยนต์ต่ำมาก และมีกระโปรงหน้าและกระโปรงหลังที่ว่างเปล่า สามารถเก็บสัมภาระได้ กลายเป็นส่วนซับแรงกระแทกจากการชน ดังนั้น การขับรถยนต์ไฟฟ้าราคาถูกจะไม่ใช่ความฝันหรือของเล่นของเหล่าเศรษฐีอีกต่อไปในอีกไม่กี่ปีข้างหน้านี้

          HTC One S put to the test   

htcs-thumb

Review: Dial S for speed


HTC started making a name for itself in the smartphone market several years ago with Windows Mobile phones. It is successfully continuing the tradition to this very day, but it gained a lot more mainstream popularity in Europe and America for its Android phones. I can remember HTC Android 1.5 Cupcake devices, but it all really took off with the HTC Dream, aka T mobile G1 and later with the HTC Hero. The Hero design is slowly coming back with new HTC One V, but for now we will focus on the 4.3-inch One S, the first smartphone powered by Qualcomm’s 28nm S4 8260A processor.

htcs-hand1

Aside from the new processor, the One S also boasts Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.3 with HTC Sense 4.0. Imagine, an Ice Cream Sandwich phone that’s not a Nexus. We apologize for the sarcasm, but it really took way too long to see phones shipping with Ice Cream Sandwich, and kudos to the house of HTC. Some vendors are still churning out new models on Gingerbread. (We are looking at you Sony. Ed) Despite the state of the art processor, hi-res screen and aluminium body, the One S is not HTC’s flagship device. That distinction is reserved for the HTC One X, which comes in at about €100 more. It features a 720p screen and Tegra 3 processor. The X stands for eXcellence, HTC claims, but the S can stand for a superlative of its own.

htcs-kutija

The HTC One S is the first phone to ship with the new Qualcomm Krait core, a dual core Snapdragon S4 8260A to be exact. It is clocked at 1.5GHz, comes with 1MB L2 cache, supports dual-channel 500MHz DDR2 memory and it is coupled with Adreno 225 graphics. US readers will be disappointed to know that HTC One S doesn’t have LTE support. Let’s get into some numbers and further specs. The phone measures 130.9 x 65 x 7.8 mm, or 5.15 x 2.16 x 0.3 inches and it weighs 119.5 grams (0.26 pounds). It features a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED screen and the resolution stands at 540 x 960. The phone has 1GB RAM and 16GB integrated storage, but no microSD card for expansion. Instead HTC offers 25GB of Dropbox storage free of charge for two years.

htcs-sim-kartica

The box contains a charger that comes with detachable USB cable, manual and headset. Like most new phones, the One S features a micro-SIM slot and in order to access it you need to take off the top lid that covers the camera, a plastic flap and insert it. It is not what we would call practical, but then again most users will not change their SIM cards at all. Once you are done with the SIM card, the One S powers up in no time and you are good to go.

htcs-punjac-slusalice

HTC One S is probably the thinnest phone with a decent sized screen we’ve seen so far. It measures just 7.8mm (0.3-inch) and it features a beautiful aluminium body finished using micro arc oxidation. The process basically bombs an aluminium plate with 10000 volts of electricity creating a micro reaction that creates a ceramic-like surface on the phone. It should be three times stronger than stainless steel. We wonder if HTC will start making cutlery using the same process. I could do with a few stylish steak knives.

On the whole we can say that it feels great in the hand but if you leave it standing on the table for an hour or two, it will feel metal cold. We are not sure if this is a good or bad thing, but at least nobody will say  it feels plasticky. The finish feels great, offering a lot of grip, and it feels very robust for such a thin device. If you want to see how it’s made, you can take a look at this video.

htcs-kamera

In terms of features, you could hardly be blamed for mistaking the One S for a flagship device. It features a speedy 8-megapixel camera with F2.0 lens and autofocus that can take snap up to 99 photos continuously, but we will get to that later. The camera features an image sense chip sensor that makes delivers outstanding image quality, for a phone at least. The camera can make the iPhone 4S run for its money and it also supports 1080p video. It also allows you to snap still photos while shooting 1080p video. This is really nice feature that we are starting to see on high-end phones.

Let’s not forget 802.11a/b/n support, Bluetooth 4.0, DLNA wireless streaming for audio and video and micro USB 2.0 that can act as HDMI via a special cable. Of course the phone comes with 3.5mm stereo audio jack as well as a speaker on the back side. The phone supports Beats Audio, but it is really nothing more than a gimmick as far as serious audiophiles are concerned. The phone features a 1650mAh battery that delivers decent battery life. The battery is not user-replaceable.

htcs-homescreen

We are happy to see Android 4.0.3 out of the box and Sense 4.0 is a refreshing distinction from Galaxy Nexus vanilla Android 4.0 interface. Of course, it will take some time to get used to it, but going form Gingerbread 2.3.x to Android 4.0 requires some time to adjust. Right off the bat we have to say that we like Sense 4.0. Like previous versions, it offers practical and easy to use shortcuts, for example you can unlock your phone directly to dialer, main, messages or camera. The part that sucks is that if you have a face recognition or pattern or pin turned on, after unlock you need to deal with that. Face unlock suffers from low light but usually works nice and quick in normal lighting conditions. Still, face unlock is more or less a gimmick and most users will still stick to the traditional swipe-to-unlock approach.

htcs-noteslayer

Sense relies on home button, back button and task button that you have below your screen. Killing a task is just a swipe away. You can modify the task bar that comes with dialer, mail, sms camera and all app in our case but you can also add folders. We missed the browser in default task line, but of course you can place the shortcut on your own. Customization is not a problem.

It is equally easy to place widgets, you press and hold an empty space on one of your screens and chose a widget or an app. Really nice. You can integrate multiple mail accounts, Facebook, Twitter, Dropbox, SkyDrive and a few other applications and you can set all this up when setting the phone up. There is a lot to say about Sense 4.0, and it does have its foibles, but generally we liked it better than vanilla Android 4.0 as it just feels better and looks great, but this is a matter of personal taste.

htcs-desna-pp

The power button on the top right, audio jack top left, the left side of the phone has micro USB 2.0, right hand side facing forward has volume up and down keys and the down side comes with a microphone hole.

htcs-back

The back side of the phone is dominated by the camera with LED flash, Beats Audio logo and speaker.

There is no microSD slot and you cannot access the battery, either.

htcs-lijeva-pp

Unlike its bigger brother, the One S uses a Super AMOLED display. The thin screen allowed HTC designers to shave off an extra millimeter off the girth, but it also has one drawback. It uses a PenTile matrix arrangement, which results in some graininess, especially in high-contrast images. It basically creates an illusion of a lower-res screen and the difference is very noticeable once you place it next to the HTC One X, with a gorgeous SLCD 720p screen.

htcs-onex-comparison


Despite this the screen looks very good, especially if you don’t have an HTC One X next to it, but it definitely isn’t the best possible solution.

The phone feels incredibly fast and the UI is silky smooth. Every single operation is blazing fast, but installation was especially impressive for us. On Wi-Fi it takes a few seconds to download a few MB application and installation usually takes even less than that. This has to do something with quite fast integrated storage that runs 23.6MB/s write and 45.7 MB/s read, according to Antutu. This was the fastest phone experience we had until we got HTC One X in hands that did some things slightly faster, but has a noticeably better screen. We will tell you more about the One X in a couple of days.

htcs-browser100pt

Both the stock Android browser and Chrome beta ran very fast and browsing is a joy. The phone is significantly faster than an LG Optimus 2X and it is neck and neck with the Galaxy Nexus, a phone that so far delivered the best Android 4.0 experience. It is not that you have plenty to choose from as Sony Experia S still runs Gingerbread.

Getting 25GB of free Dropbox storage is a great move on HTC’s part. Dropbox is a very clever service and with good upload speeds it takes mere seconds to upload a few MB files from your PC or phone to Dropbox and then a few more from Dropbox to your phone. The new feature to automatically upload photos to Dropbox is great, as it gets you eye-Fi like feature as you can see your phone in matter of seconds on your PC or notebook. Really cool stuff that makes transfer a bit easier and greatly reduces the need for USB sticks. With a 25GB Dropbox, capability to connect to 25GB of Microsoft Skydrive, the integrated 16GB of storage doesn’t sound too small.

Most phone makers are turning away from microSD storage, especially in high end devices. There is a very good reason for this, and it has nothing to do with aesthetic issues or bulk. Internal storage tends to be significantly faster than microSD and buying a speedy high-end phone only to burden it with slow external storage and undermine the user experience sort of defeats the point of getting a high-end phone to begin with.

htcs-camera-ui

The camera is great. Like we said, it is an 8-megapixel unit capable of 1080p video. It can take 99 photos in burst mode, save them all or an algorithm can chose what it thinks its best one for you. Auto focus is quick and even in low light we got quite decent results. In very low light and no flash, you can get a nice picture, but obviously it will be grainy due high ISO and small sensor. It takes 0.7 seconds to power up and shoot, and the photos usually turn out really sharp, especially in daylight. Flash photos are acceptable but it’s better to take a few just to be sure that one of them will be decent. This is still a phone but takes photos good enough so you can forget about spending a few hundred on a point and shoot camera. Of course, point and shoot cameras are still way ahead of phones, phones are slowly getting to the point when they can truly replace cheap cameras.

htcs-fudo-baby

We will follow up with some videos and pictures for you just to prove the point. The camera startup is insanely quick, it takes photos and moves to a new one in no time. This is one of the best phone cameras that I’ve seen and it outperforms almost all phones on the market today. The iPhone 4S cannot take video and photos at the same time, the Sony Experia S is a tad slower, although it does feature a massive 12-megapixel sensor and dedicated shutter button.

htcs-top

Sound quality is decent and the speaker can play some nice music but it’s nothing spectacular. Beats Audio feels like a gimmick but it delivers good sound, no complaint there but it’s nothing that we haven’t heard or seen before. It will play all your music on speaker or headset just fine, nothing more to add here. HTC bundles a pair of standard headphones with the One S and they are nothing to write home about. Beats Audio tends to boost bass levels a bit, but audiophiles will be better off with an after-market unit. This is true of all smartphones today and we believe phone makers should really start paying a bit more attention in this department, especially when it comes to high-end devices.

We ran a lot of benchmarks to try to see how the new Qualcomm S4 8260A in 28nm with Adreno 225 graphics performs. The bottom line is that it performs great but One X, powered by a quad-core Tegra 3 chipset, scores a bit more in multi-threaded tests.

htcs-tabela1

HTC One S Qualcomm 8260A wins in Quadrant, Linpack and Sunspider, compared to the 4-plus-1-core Tegra 3. It also scores better numbers in Nenamark 1 and GLbench Egypt standard test but since its running at 540 x 960 vs. 1280x720 at HTC One X, we are talking about apples and oranges in some tests. Tegra 3 wins this test in off-screen rendering when they compare the same image size in Egypt Off screen test. HTC One S is the fastest phone in Sun Spider test and it turns out that both OMAP 4430 from Texas instruments and Qualcomm with S4 8260A can score better in this test, lower is better of course. Linpack is a relatively unreliable test as 10 runs will result in 10 varying scores, but we ran 10 on each device and took the highest number. The One S wins this round. Browsermak scores better on Tegra 3 HTC One X as it clearly get use to all cores.
Now back to all multi tread aware tests. In Antutu, CF Bench and AndE bench more cores is clearly better.

htcs-tabela2

Overall, HTC One S is one of the fastest phones around and we almost dare to say that it’s the fastest and thinnest 4.3-inch phone in the world. 


Conclusion


HTC’s One S is the thinnest, fastest high-end phone we’ve seen to date and the new aluminum-turned-ceramic material feels great.

One can argue that the phone looks a bit bland, it sticks with HTC’s traditional design and it will not turn heads, but this is a matter of taste. The camera is the best we’ve seen in this screen size and the phone performed admirable in all tasks and benchmarks, sometimes even outpacing the quad core Tegra 3. Some people will find HTC’s One X a bit too large and this is exactly the target group for the HTC One S. It’s a great phone, and although it does not have the best screen out there, it makes up with a very good processor, excellent camera and unparalleled build quality.

It feels great in your hand, it’s comfortable to use, and generally it is a great phone, one of the best we’ve seen. Downsides include limited storage, but HTC aims to make up for it with 25GB of Dropbox storage. It would be nice if HTC worked out a way to use volume buttons as a camera shutter button.

HTC really made a great comeback after a rocky year, and it is entering 2012 with a very nice lineup. The €450 price tag sounds a bit too steep, especially knowing that €100 more you can get you a One X, but once again you either want 4.3 or 4.7-inch screens, it’s hard to want both formats.  The competition also offers a few alternatives. The Galaxy Nexus is now available for €399 or less and you can also pick up an Xperia S for about €430 and both offer pretty good value for money, although they can’t match the One S in terms of performance or build quality.

Overall it is a top notch phone and we can easily recommend it.


          Banks are jumping after passing the Fed's second stress test (BAC, MS, GS, ALLY, JPM, C, KEY, WFC, CS)   

A cable car replica tour bus transports San Francisco Giants players through a sea of confetti during a victory parade for the World Series champions in San Francisco.

The bank stocks passed a big milestone Wednesday.

The results of the qualitative Fed's stress test were released after the market close on Wednesday, and all of the banks passed. This was the first time all major US banks passed the test, according to the Wall Street Journal

Passing the tests means the banks will be able to share their wealth with stockholders.

After passing the tests, many of the banks announced buybacks and dividend increases.

Most of the bank stocks are on the move after passing the test. Here is a round-up of some of the most notable names.

Capital One's shares are falling after the results. The credit card company only "conditionally" passed the stress tests and will have to resubmit its plan.

The results released Wednesday are the qualitative portion of the Fed's stress tests, the harder portion of the tests according to some investors. The banks previously passed the quantitative portions earlier in the month.

I am actually all for smaller more aerodynamic wheels as a cheap way to get better range, a better ride and less expensive tire replacements. Bring on the 17 inch manhole covers as an option at least. To me it certainly makes more sense than Dual Motor as a way to get more range given Dual Motor on the S75 nets a whole ~9 miles of range at 70 MPH for ~$5 grand.

"From the graphs I have seen online showing expected factory capacity in 2020 LG would only have 1GWh less than Tesla so just a few % less. The difference is that Tesla will have it in one location (that year) whereas LG will have a number of smaller factories." No, the difference is that Tesla & Panasonic are, really and truly, rapidly building out new battery cell manufacturing capacity at Gigafactory 1... and LG Chem is talking big and not actually doing much.

Aside from Tesla, no one else (car manufacturer or battery manufacturer) is building a battery factory on the scale needed for mass market EV. Not even BYD? I don't know how fast BYD is building out new capacity, but at last report they were the closest of any battery maker to challenging Panasonic as world leader in MWh of EV batteries per year.
          Comment on Elon Musk Says “Sticking To 100” For Max Tesla Battery Capacity by BillT   
100 kWh is pretty marginal for the model X owner who actually wants to tow something in my opinion. But, I agree with Musk doing his best to avoid Osborning the model S/X by stating there are no plans for higher capacity batteries. I think he is fully aware he needs to keep the model S/X revenue coming in until the model 3 can start paying the bills. Personally a sedan that will do an initial 250 miles at 75 MPH and then allow me to add 150 miles worth of range with <15 minutes of charging after that would be fine with me. That would let me do a 500-600 mile day with just a couple of stops. In my younger 1000+ mile "iron butt" days it was different.

Seriously? Fenders so swollen that the driver couldn't even see over them? Is this a virtual concept car or a subtle joke? Other than that... it looks like a lot of actual concept cars. That is, it's certainly sleek and futuristic looking, but so utterly impractical that we can be absolutely certain it never would become an actual production car. The lack of roll bar is another sign that the designer had no consideration at all for practicality or safety. And what's up with auto designers so often putting wheels on concept cars which don't even remotely resemble wheels on production cars?

"• 80 mph is speeding on every highway in the U.S." Huh? You are confusing USA with California or whatever is your home state. And it isn't even whole of the world. Check here for speed limits in the US: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Speed_limits_in_the_United_States 7 states have 80 mph limits. Driving +5 mph over it is common in many places. Much of the Europe is 130 km/h (81 mph) for cars or unlimited on some German highways in good weather. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Speed_limits_by_country Driving 5-10 km/h over limit is common too if traffic permits.

          This $2.9 billion company’s stock skyrocketed after signing a key deal with Google   
Sudheesh Nair, president of Nutanix, has had a very profitable day.

Nutanix

Sudheesh Nair, president of Nutanix, has had a very profitable day.

Nutanix’s stock got a big boost Wednesday after the upstart cloud software provider announced a new partnership with Google. 

The company will work with Google to give joint customers a unified public cloud service that combines the Nutanix environment with the Google Cloud Platform, Nutanix announced.

Investors cheered the news. Nutanix’s stock jumped up 9.23% during regular trading, closing at $20.36. It went up another 1.18% to $20.60 in after-hours exchanges. 

The deal between Google and Nutanix will ultimately give enterprises the ability to manage applications running both on Google’s cloud and on their own servers, so they appear to be running in just one place. That could allow enterprises to tap into Google’s processing power while keeping their data on their own servers. Before, Nutanix provided a cloud-like experience to enterprises that relied on their own private, on-premise servers. 

“Hybrid Cloud needs be a two-way street,” said Sudheesh Nair, president of Nutanix, in a statement. “The strategic alliance with Google demonstrates our commitment to simplify operations for our customers with a single enterprise cloud OS across both private and public clouds—with ubiquity, extensibility and intuitive design.”

          Elon Musk has officially started digging a tunnel under Los Angeles

The Boring Company is building its own tunnel boring machine, named Godot.

Elon Musk’s latest company is officially up and running.

The Tesla and SpaceX CEO said on Twitter Wednesday evening that his tunnel boring machine, dubbed Godot, has officially begun digging under Los Angeles.

Musk officially launched his tunnel company, aptly named The Boring Company, in April.

“No longer waiting for Godot. It has begun boring and just completed the first segment of tunnel in LA,” Musk said.

Musk said in a Bloomberg profile that the company would begin digging in the SpaceX parking lot. The Boring Company, however, will need to secure permits to dig beyond the SpaceX property line.

Musk’s ultimate goal is to relieve congestion by building as many as 30 layers of tunnels beneath Interstate 105 in LA. Musk has said that the tunnels will transport cars on an electric skate and could even accommodate a Hyperloop.

Musk said last Monday that he has had “promising conversations” with Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti about the project.

Los Angeles is contemplating the addition of an express train that would travel between Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and Union Station, a main transit hub that connects LA to distant suburbs east and west of the city. Garcetti said he is considering using Musk’s tunnel to support the rail connection.

The SpaceX parking lot is roughly a five-minute drive from LAX, but securing the necessary permits to dig under the freeway will likely take time.

Still, Musk is clearly dead serious about making his tunnel network a reality. But he says it will take some more time before Godot can beat his pet snail, Gary.

          Jimmy Fallon pulled ahead of Stephen Colbert in the late-night ratings war for the first time in 5 months   
Jimmy Fallon Stephen Colbert

Stephen Colbert pours a bucket of pennies onto Jimmy Fallon’s “Tonight Show” desk after losing a bet.

Stephen Colbert has been beating Jimmy Fallon in late-night show ratings for the past five months — until last week.

“The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” finally managed to surpass “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” by 34,000 viewers last week, according to The Hollywood ReporterThese are Fallon’s highest ratings since he filmed a series of episodes in Orlando that aired in April to celebrate the opening of his new ride at the Universal Orlando Resort. 

It’s still a close race — a margin of 34,000 viewers isn’t much, especially considering the fact that Colbert aired reruns while shooting in Russia last Thursday and Friday, and Colbert’s video on demand (VOD) & DVR views have yet to be added up (which could potentially push Colbert’s overall weekly ratings past Fallon’s).

But while Fallon’s momentary resurgence may be due to the absence of his chief competition, his small spike in viewership does raise the question of whether or not some viewers have moved on, or rather returned, after Fallon’s infamous tousling of President Trump’s hair.

Fallon’s viewership started to decrease five months ago, shortly after Trump’s inauguration. Fallon’s softball interview and on-air Trump hair tousle was widely criticized by liberals, who argued it humanized Trump in the midst of his presidential campaign and helped him win the 2016 election.

Although there doesn’t appear to be any concrete data that shows the political leanings of “The Tonight Show” audience, the late night genre as a whole seems to have a more liberal slant than ever these days, with Trump serving as the butt of most monologue jokes. Variety recently posted findings from a study, conducted at the Center for Media and Public Affairs at George Mason University, that tallied up the number of Trump jokes delivered by late night hosts during Trump’s first 100 days in office. Colbert told the most Trump jokes (337 total), while Fallon lagged behind in third place with 231 Trump jokes. 

According to Business Insider’s findings, late night hosts with sharp liberal skewed political critiques, such as Stephen Colbert (Fallon’s top competition), Samantha Bee, and Bill Maher have all seen sizeable increases in their viewership since President Trump has been in office. But while some late night hosts have made their political leanings more obvious than others, Fallon, has remained fairly apolitical.

While some viewers may have sought out more politically-charged humor in the wake of the election, Fallon’s middle-of-the-road demeanor could win out in the end — or at least until Colbert gets back on another hot streak.

          GPU Compute Solutions from Chenbro and Server Case UK   
Server Case UK has years of experience working GPU compute systems from multiple vendors, including HP and Supermicro. We are also an NVIDIA partner, and can successfully integrate their GPU range of products including the Tesla and GRID ranges. We have identified that solutions from HP and Supermicro can become very expensive and sometimes a little limited, so we have recently put together a couple of solutions that make it quick and easy to work with multiple GPU solutions in a single server solution. Our most popular solution is using an Asus WS motherboard, which is an extended form factor board, designed for use with an 8-slot PCI chassis. We have just the solution, using a cost effective Chenbro chassis and an 8-slot GPU rear window. This motherboard allows for 4x Dual With GPU’s to be installed, and these can be a GPU for compute, such as the Tesla or GRID cards, or a high performance graphics card, such as the GTX Range. Our customers frequently take this solution with 4x GTX 980 cards for high end multi monitor outputs. These customers use these for simulators, video walls, rendering and more. We’ve put together a quick shopping list of the parts we would recommend; Chenbro RM41300 This is one of our most popular 4U chassis – It accepts all ranges of motherboards, from Mini ITX all the way through to Extended ATX. It will also accept a low cost standard ATX PSU (any size) or a Mini Redundant PSU. The chassis is very well assembled, presentable and has loads of expansion potential. To help cool the GPU’s there is a high performance front mounted 120mm fan – PWM 4-pin controlled, which is incredibly quiet at both low and high speeds. It will effectively cool active-cooled GPU’s and graphics cards. To enable full 4x GPU use you will need to purchase the 8-slot rear window, which replaces the entire rear of the chassis – It is a very simple swap out and we can swap this for you too, without cost. Asus X99-E WS For the motherboard we would recommend the Asus X99-E WS. It is one of the highest-end motherboards available on the market, and the Asus WS range of boards are highly respected in both the enthusiast, gaming and professional markets. The board itself has 7x PCIe 16x slots, suitable for GPU’s and graphics cards. The board has Dual Gigabit LAN, Support for up to 128GB RAM (8x DDR4 Slots), Socket 2011-3 for Intel Core i7 CPU, 8x SATA-3 6Gbps, M.2 10Gbps SATA Socket, eSATA 6Gbps and 2x SATA Express. Included with this board are the following accessories; User Manual COM Port Cable 12x SATA 6Gbps Cables 3-Way SLI Bridge 4-Way SLI Bridge Q-Connectors 2-Port USB 2.0 Modules To read the full technical specifications please visit the Asus website here.PSU, GPU/Graphics, RAM and CPU The PSU for this system depends on the add-on cards and CPU/RAM used, but we would recommend a range of Corsair PSU’s, typically 850W or higher. We can work with you to put together a full spec and the right system for your requirements – Please contact us and our team would be happy to work with you.
          Bitcoin Mining - We can help   
You’ve all heard about Bitcoin – The new electronic trading currency that has taken the world by storm in 2013. At present the currency is relatively unknown, and there’s a lot of controversy regarding its security, but for the few people who are mining Bitcoins this can be an incredibly profitable business. We have supplied various high-end servers for customers recently that are in effect traditional hardware, but include high-end modified GPU based mining cards. Currently our customers are using GPU’s from NVidia, however there are now newcomers to the market with purpose engineered cards, from the likes of Butterflylabs. Their current flagship model provides up to 600 GigaHash’s per second, which is almost double of what the high-end GPU’s can offer. We recently assembled a small farm of these systems for a customer (22x of these machines), each of which has 4x of the Butterflylabs 600GH Mining Cards installed. These cards are loosely bards on the NVidia Tesla cards, but internally modified with their own coding to be purpose built for Bitcoin Mining. Each of these systems was based on a Supermicro based chassis, and Asus internals. We don’t have any photographs of video of these builds unfortunately as we had a tight 3 week timescale to fully assemble, stress test and dispatch these systems. The components used for each machine were as follows; Supermicro SuperChassis 747TG-R1400B-SQ  This chassis has a 1400W Dual Redundant 94% Platinum Efficiency PSU. The high wattage was required to sufficiently drive the 4x Butterflylabs cards, which at peak draw up to 300W each. Whilst this chassis is a Supermicro model, it is fully compatible with a standard ATX motherboard, accepting sizes from Micro ATX through to full size EATX. It will also accept the special Supermicro extended quad CPU boards if required. The main reason for choosing this chassis is the 8 slot PCI backplane, allowing 4 cards to be installed, plus the improved cooling internally, designed for GPU rendering systems. Internally within the chassis is an 8-bay hot-swap SATA/SAS area. This wasn’t used for this specific customer. Asus P9X79E-WS Intel X79 Motherboard This motherboard was chosen for its 4x PCIe 16x slots, allowing 4x of the Butterflylabs cards to be used. The board was coupled with an Intel Core i7-4820K. For Bitcoin mining the system doesn’t need a particularly powerful CPU, as all of the processing is done on the specialist add-on cards. The customer however did want to re-purpose the systems at a later date if required, so the Intel i7 CPU would allow them to do this without major upgrades. There are various other components that went into this system, such as good quality 16GB Kingston RAM kits, but the basic components are listed above. The above system is a quick example of a Bitcoin mining server. We have supplied other systems that are GPU free, and use the CPU only for processing. This is a much slower process, but it means cheaper components can be used initially. If you would like to discuss your requirements or would like to talk to a member of our sales team about Bitcoin mining, please contact us or give us a call on 0800 652 1649. We would be happy to help.

          A storage startup scrapped its $109 million IPO the night before it was scheduled to debut   

ken klein tintri ceo

Storage startup Tintri scuttled its plans for an IPO Wednesday night, less than 24 hours before it was slated to debut on the NASDAQ exchange.

While confirming to Business Insider that Tintri won't IPO on Thursday, a company spokesperson declined to explain why or to give any further update on its plans to go public. 

Companies rarely back out of a planned IPO the night before it's scheduled to occur.

Tintri was seeking to raise $109 million in an IPO priced between $10.50 to $12.50 a share. The company's most recent IPO filing document showed that it  is experiencing mounting losses amid slowing revenue growth. 

The Silicon Valley company has raised $260 million in venture capital financing from investors including New Enterprise Associates and Menlo Ventures.

this article is seriously flawed, in that whilst the day to day running costs may be lower (fuel wise) the cost of the batteries has not been taken into account. i believe the cost of these is £5000 or thereabouts, every 5 years or so, in the case of the nissan leaf. also you say a Tesla S is good for a 'claimed' range of 265 miles. and how long does it take to recharge? as someone who covers 3-400 miles a day, and will for the forseeable future, i, and many like me, will not be changing to these electric cars until the range is improved and/or recharge time is down to around 15 mins. besides, theyre not really GREEN anyhow. they just move the pollution from 1 place (the exhaust) to many others (power station, mining nickel etc for batteries, etc etc)

          BMW kontert Tesla   
München (dts Nachrichtenagentur) - Der BMW-Konzern will auf der Branchenmesse IAA im September den 3er-BMW als Elektroauto vorstellen. Das Auto soll eine Reichweite von mindestens 400 Kilometern haben und damit das Model 3 des Konkurrenten Tesla kontern, schreibt das "Handelsblatt" (Donnerstagausgabe) unter Berufung auf Konzernkreise. BMW wollte die Information auf Anfrage nicht kommentieren.

Die 3er-Reihe ist die absatzstärkste Baureihe des Konzerns. Die Entscheidung, das Auto mit Elektroantrieb anzubieten, ist laut des Berichts eine Reaktion auf den Verkaufserfolg des Model 3 von Tesla. Das Stromauto aus Kalifornien hat fast 400.000 Vorbestellungen, die Produktion beginnt in diesen Tagen. Der Produktionsanlauf des Model 3 hat den Tesla-Aktienkurs in den vergangenen Wochen beflügelt, mit 54 Milliarden Euro ist Tesla an der Börse jetzt so viel Wert wie der wesentlich größere BMW-Konzern BMW hat bereits im vergangenen Jahr seine Strategie geändert. Statt des mäßig nachgefragten Elektroautos "i3" aus Kohlefaser sollen in den kommenden Jahren alle bislang konventionell angetriebenen Autos auch mit Elektroantrieben angeboten werden.

          Predicciones y Tendencias #eliax para el 2017 (ACTUALIZADO)   
Fuente: eliax.com

eliax predicciones y tendencias 2017eliax, para mentes curiosas...Hola amig@s lectores,

Como ya es tradición, y por 12vo (¡doceavo!) año consecutivo, es hora de mi tradicional lista de predicciones y tendencias para el nuevo año, en este caso el 2017.

Y como hago en años recientes (para combatir los Trolls), les advierto que esta es una lista tanto de predicciones como de tendencias, lo que significa que verán algunas cosas en la lista que serán bastante obvias. Tomen esto más como un divertido mapa intelectual de referencia para debatir y pensar sobre lo que veremos con miras a este nuevo año ;)

Y una cosa más muy importante: A diferencia de las tendencias, el tema de las predicciones por lo general no las repito cada año pero muchas por lo general se cumplen 2 o incluso 3, 4 o 5 años después, por lo que recomiendo se den una ojeada por las predicciones anteriores (enlaces a todas ellas al final de este artículo), pues si nos llevamos de lo ocurrido en años pasados, algunas de ellas se cumplirán este año.

Así que sin más que decir, iniciemos...


1. El Apple VR
El secreto peor guardado de la actualidad es que Apple está trabajando en alguna plataforma de Realidad Virtual/Aumentada, y dado los grandes avances que están haciendo los competidores, creo que es hora que en el 2017 Apple revele tal plataforma, la cual muy posiblemente esté ligada a su nuevo iPhone del 2017 y sea anunciada alrededor de Septiembre.

En cuanto al nombre, hay varias opciones: Apple VR, iVR, iPhone VR, VR Pod, Apple Reality, iReality, iGlass, etc... (algunos de estos nombres ya han sido utilizado antes, pero Apple puede negociarlos como hizo con el nombre iOS con CISCO).

Posibilidades: 70%


2. El Apple iHome
No se cómo se terminará llamando esto, pero en esencia Apple tarde o temprano tendrá que responder y sacar un competidor al super popular Amazon Echo, el cual es por el momento solo mercadeado en los EEUU pero de los cuales ya hay 6 millones de ellos instalados en hogares de esa nación, lo que habla del potencial de esa tecnología.

Para los que desconozcan que es un Amazon Echo, es esencialmente un interfaz de voz para convertir tu hogar a un inteligente (un "Smart Home") en forma de parlante cilíndrico que se conecta a Internet y responde con el asistente te inteligencia artificial Alexa, para responderte preguntas, tocar música, controlar las luces de tu casa, etc.

Google ya respondió con el Google Home hace unas semanas atrás, y ahora le toca a Apple...

Posibilidades: 80%


3. El Nuevo iPhone (8)
Es más probable que Apple saque un nuevo iPhone cada año a que salga el Sol mañana, por lo que hasta ahí estamos todos de acuerdo. Los rumores dicen que tendrá una pantalla que cubrirá casi toda su superficie, con el sensor biométrico de huellas digitales escondido detrás de la pantalla, y posiblemente los parlantes también incrustados en la pantalla, y de paso será el primer iPhone que se cargue de forma inalámbrica sin necesidad de conectores eléctricos alambrados. Así mismo vendrían con mejores cámaras duales, e incluso alguna capacidad para Realidad Aumentada.

Se dice que uno de los nuevos iPhones tendrá un tamaño de 5", lo que podría significar o (1) que tendremos un iPhone en un tamaño intermedio entre el iPhone 7 y el iPhone 7 Plus, o (2) que en realidad estamos hablando del mismo iPhone 8/Plus que debido a que será "todo pantalla" podrá reducir su tamaño externo sin reducir el tamaño de la pantalla en sí.

Aparte de eso, hay rumores de que veremos no uno, ni dos, sino que tres nuevos modelos de iPhones, y a tal fin tengo mis propias teorías...

Una teoría, la más popular que todos comparten, es que veremos un iPhone 7S, y un iPhone 7 Plus, y un iPhone 8 para conmemorar el décimo aniversario del iPhone. ¿O quizás terminen llamando al tercer modelo el iPhone 7 Special Edition, o iPhone 7 10th Anniversary Edition?

Sin embargo me pregunto si ya no es hora de dejar los números y pasar de regreso al nombre simplemente "iPhone", y que se mercadee como "El nuevo iPhone".

Otra idea que se me ocurre y que compartí hace varios meses con ustedes en las redes sociales de #eliax es la idea de adoptar la nomenclatura de la industria de la moda, y llamar los nuevos iPhones simplemente iPhone S, iPhone M, y iPhone L, para significar Small, Medium y Large, lo que creo caería bastante bien con la mentalidad simplista y de moda que atribuye Apple a sus productos.

Posibilidades: 100% (de un nuevo iPhone 8)
85% de que tenga las características aquí descritas
50% de que adopten este sistema de nombres


4. Actualización de productos de Apple
Esperen un nuevo teclado externo e inalámbrico con la barra touch (Touch Bar) que debutó en las nuevas MacBook Pro, así como Touch ID para leerte la huella digital.

Además esperen una nueva iMac con un nuevo teclado con Touch Bar, aunque podría ser alambrado. Esta iMac quizás por fin podría tener una pantalla Touch como las Surface de Microsoft, pero no aguanten su respiración esperando por ello...

En cuanto a la MacBook Air, ya no tiene razón de existir después que salió la nueva MacBook, por lo que quizás Apple retire ese producto.

Es posible que algunas de las nuevas Macs vengan con una nueva arquitectura (como detalle unas cuantas predicciones más abajo).

Posibilidades: 75%


5. ¿Adios al iPod?
El iPod fue el dispositivo que lanzó a Apple a una nueva Era en el espacio de consumidores, abriendo la puerta al iPhone, iPad y Apple Watch.

Sin embargo, hoy día ya es irrelevante en un mundo donde toda la música la cargamos con nosotros en celulares. Así que al menos que Apple haga algo radical (como incluir iTunes HD multi-canal o algo por el estilo para ocupar un nicho de fanáticos del audio), creo que este año podría ser su fin. Me gustaría una versión especial para audiófilos (¿se dice así?).

Posibilidades: 55%


6. ¿Un Surface Phone?
Desde que salió el primer iPhone, Microsoft en el mundo móvil ha ido en declive, primero con su plataforma Windows Mobile (era demasiado complicado, tratando de entrar desesperadamente al Windows de escritorio en la palma de la mano), y posteriormente con Windows Phone (que llegó demasiado tarde cuando iPhone y Android ya estaban establecidos).

Pero la división Surface de Microsoft ha demostrado tener un equipo de diseño e ingeniera que rivaliza incluso a Apple, por lo que la empresa quizás se anime a un nuevo intento más con un Surface Phone basado esta vez en Windows 10.

Sin embargo, sus posibilidades de éxito son bajas, dada la gran complacencia que tienen los usuarios con el duopolio iPhone-Android.

Posibilidades: 55%


7. Redes sociales que suben y bajan
Vamos a condensar varias predicciones sobre redes sociales en una sola a continuación:

7.1: Snapchat, Instagram, Whatsapp y Facebook continuarán creciendo vertiginosamente.

7.2: El IPO (salida al mercado público de forma temprana) de Snapchat será sensacional, pero ya veremos si podrá aguantar los azotes de Facebook a largo plazo (lo más probable es que no, y que sea adquirida, quizás por Microsoft o Samsung, al menos que se reinvente con Realidad Aumentada o se expanda a otras áreas).

7.3: Twitter va a seguir decayendo, y quizás sea adquirida por otro gigante (Microsoft o Samsung).

7.4: La red Google+ continuará siendo mayoritariamente irrelevante, e incluso (al menos que Google haga algo drástico y efectivo) declinará mientras los usuarios prestan más atención a redes más efectivas y capten mejor su atención.

8. Fitbit a ser adquirida
Ahora que Fitbit (empresa especializada en bandas inteligentes para deportes y salud) adquirió a Pebble, es probable que esta se torne apetecible a un pez más grande para adquirirla.

9. Seguridad en IoT un dolor de cabeza
El IoT (Internet de las Cosas) es una industria que incluye desde cámaras de vigilancia conectadas a Internet, hasta grabadoras de video por Internet, juguetes conectados a Internet, televisores conectados a Internet, sensores industriales conectados a Internet, y cualquier otra cosa que se puedan imaginar conectado a Internet.

Sin embargo, el 2016 demostró el gran problema de seguridad que tenemos a la mano ya que cientos (y próximamente, miles) de millones de estos dispositivos tienen seguridad inapropiada, lo que los hace un objetivo fácil para que los hackers intervengan y tomen control, creando redes de millones de dispositivos "zombie" que son posteriormente utilizados, rentados a vendidos al mejor postor (en el mercado negro de la Web Profunda o Web Oscura) para coordinar ataques de DDoS, enviar virus, troyanos, invadir otras máquinas, etc.

Este año 2016 se produjeron al menos 3 ataques a gran escala, uno de ellos ralentizando a todo el Internet global por varias horas, y otros enviando ataques que superaron los 600Gbps (600 Gigabits por segundo) de datos.

Y lo peor es, que en el 2017 veremos esto escalar exponencialmente a peores ataques...

10. Legislación sobre IoT
Debido al punto anterior, vamos a ver las primeras discusiones serias (han existido informalmente, por años) a nivel legislativo sobre reglamentación para la construcción de dispositivos IoT, que garanticen al menos un grado mínimo de seguridad para ser colocados en internet. Es posible que sea la FCC de los EEUU que lidere esto eventualmente.

11. Real-time despega en redes sociales
En los últimos meses (y particularmente en las últimas semanas del 2016) los grandes del espacio de redes sociales sacaron actualizaciones que permite que las personan transmitan video en tiempo real en sus redes.

Hoy día ya es posible hacer eso con Facebook, Instagram y Twitter, para nombrar algunos. Esto se intensificará y ya será una funcionalidad básica esperada en cualquier red social seria del 2017.

12. Servicio al Cliente por video
Debido a la proliferación de herramientas de video en tiempo real en redes sociales (como explicado en el punto anterior), y herramientas de comunicación que permiten hacer trivial el tema de video-llamadas (Facetime, Whatsapp, Messenger, Google Duo, etc), se hará mucho más fácil y práctico (sin mencionar, barato) que las empresas inicien a dar soporte técnico y servicio al cliente por video.

Las que inicien en esto lo harán como una ventaja competitiva y como un nuevo canal de ventas y servicios.

13. inteligencia Artificial (AI) a crecer vertiginosamente, empezando en Asistentes Virtuales
La guerra entre Apple Siri, Google Now, Microsoft Cortana, Samsung Viv, Amazon Alexa y otros (como Hound) se intensificará en el 2017, así como veremos otros competidores (que posiblemente serán rápidamente adquiridos). El campo de la AI será uno de los campos de mayor inversión en el 2017, junto a (leer próximo punto)...

14. El campo de la Realidad Virtual/Aumentada/Mixta a calentarse al extremo en el 2017
El año pasado les comenté que el 2016 sería el año que la VR y AR (por sus siglas en inglés) despegarían, y el 2017 será el año en que estas tecnologías se pondrán al rojo vivo en términos de inversión.

Posibilidades: 95%


15. Realidad Aumentada todavía no pasará a Realidad Virtual
Aunque todo el mundo está de acuerdo que AR sería más importante que VR, lo dudo que ese sea el caso en el 2017 debido a la complejidad y costo de implementación de AR. La Realidad Aumentada necesita de muchísimo mayor procesamiento, de algoritmos muchos más complejos, de circuitos y sensores más avanzados (y caros), y de software altamente especializado, requiriendo mano de obra bastante experta. Por el momento las soluciones de VR son más sencillas de implementar y ya existe un mercado masivo para ellas.

Posibilidades: 80%


16. Grandes avances en Realidad Aumentada
Aunque la AR paso detrás de VR en el 2017, eso no significa que estará estancada, y al contrario veremos bastante competencia tanto en gafas de AR como en sus componentes básicos (como espejos holográficos, circuitos integrados dedicados, algoritmos de mezcla de Realidad, etc). AR seguirá creciendo vertiginosamente en paralelo a VR en el sector industrial y campos especializados como la industria médica.

17. Celulares empiezan a moverse hacia un futuro inalámbrico
El iPhone 7 dejó atrás el conector de audio tradicional analógico de 3.5mm, y se rumora que el próximo iPhone permitirá cargar inalámbricamente, y aunque de por sí solo estas no son grandes novedades (algunos modelos de celulares Android se han podido cargar inalámbricamente por años), Apple demostró la gran ventaja de su potente tecnología W1 para audio (con sus nuevos audífonos inalámbricos AirPods), de lo fácil que es enviar vídeo por AirPlay, de los sencillo que es compartir datos cércanos vía AirDrop, y se rumora que su implementación de energía inalámbrica será lo mejor y más práctico del mercado, permitiendo cargar los equipos desde distancias relativamente largas.

Todo esto pone presión al mundo Android, incentivando la competencia, lo que tendrá como efecto una rápida transición hacia todo lo que sea inalámbrico en celulares, tabletas, e incluso laptops. Estamos llegando al momento en donde equipos como celulares vendrán totalmente sellados sin conector alguno. Toda esta transición tomará unos 3 años.

18. El Samsung Galaxy S8 y Note 8, bestias de poder
Después del desastre explosivo que fue el Note 7, la empresa sabe que sus próximos equipos van a tener que ser descomunalmente potentes y funcionales para poder volver a atraer a los que dejaron su campamento talibán, así que esperen el mayor avance de Samsung en celulares y phablets con sus próximos modelos.

Esperen pantallas curvas en todos los modelos, resolución 4K en el Note 8, lectores de huellas dactilares detrás de la pantalla al igual que el próximo iPhone, parlantes estéreo como el iPhone 7, conector de audio digital como el iPhone 7, cámaras duales como el iPhone 7 Plus, y otras mejoras.

Aunque quizás no el más potente asistente digital , Alexa será el más práctico de todos para cosas cotidianas del hogar, desde pedir canciones y el estado del tiempo, hasta reproducir radio, buscar datos básicos y automatizar nuestros hogares. Quizás Amazon se anime y por fin saque la versión internacional de su Amazon Echo en otros idiomas...

21. El Nintendo Switch no va a ser tan popular como el Nintendo Wii
El Nintendo Switch que sale a la venta en el primer cuarto del 2017 no creo será la solución al desastre que fue el Wii U, aunque sí es posible que venda más que este, pero dudo bastante que se acerque al éxito de ventas del origina Wii, y la razón tiene que ver con que el PlayStation VR será una mejor proposición en el 2017 para aquellos jugadores que quieren algo verdaderamente diferente.

Aunque ojo, al inicio el Switch será un éxito de ventas, y todo fan de Mario y Zelda querrá uno, pero el dinero esta vez se irá más en querer probar también el PSVR que es mucho más novedoso.

Para finales del 2017, la mayoría de instituciones educativas universitarias (que se consideren vanguardistas) incluirán la materia de Machine Learning (Aprendizaje de Máquinas) en sus curriculums estándar de ingeniería de software. ML será tan básico como AI (Inteligencia Artificial) y VR en esta segunda mitad de esta década en curso.

Posibilidades: 60%


24. Industria de la Salud y Machine Learning (más AI)
Para este año 2017 se hará evidente (para los que aún siguen ciegos en este aspecto) que el mercado de la industria del cuidado de la salud se verá enorme y profundamente afectado por Machine Learning e Inteligencia Artificial.

Posibilidades: 85%


25. Big Data de mano con Machine Learning Y AI
Este año también se hará evidente que Big Data va con Machine Learning y AI de la misma forma que el pan va con la mantequilla (o un mangú dominicano con salami y huevos fritos)...

Sencillamente es imposible para seres humanos analizar tantos datos con simples procesos estadísticos u hojas de Excel; necesitamos reconocedores de patrones que van mucho más allá que ecuaciones lineales con simples variables de pocas dimensiones. Estamos ya en un punto en donde vamos a tener que confiar en máquinas para interpretar y descubrir patrones en nuestros datos masivos, y muchos se sentirán incómodos con la pérdida de control humana que eso significa.

26. Continúa migración masiva a La Nube
Continuando una tendencia de años recientes, en el 2017 no veremos un descanso, y al contrario veremos una adopción acelerada, de sistemas empresariales alojados en La Nube (plataformas en Internet fuera de tus premisas).

Esto incluye todo tipo de sistemas informáticos, desde alojamiento de correos y coordinación de fuerza de ventas (como con GMail y Salesforce), hasta migraciones masivas de sistemas tipo ERP en la nube (como las versiones nube de Microsoft Dynamics) o infraestructura en la nube (como los servicios de Amazon AWS). Ya no hay marcha atrás.

Posibilidades: 100%


27. La mayoría de nuevos sistemas informáticos serán Cloud-First/Mobile-First
Al menos que hablemos de novatos, o desarrolladores que se quieren apegar al pasado, para el 2017 la vasta mayoría de los nuevos sistemas informáticos estarían pensados con una filosofía Cloud-First/Mobile-First (CFMF, un término que me acabo de inventar), significando que serán diseñados desde cero pensando en ser consumidos desde la nube, y/o plataformas móviles. Las aplicaciones de escritorio serían ahora un nicho para aplicaciones muy específicas que requieren de procesamiento local (como Photoshop o AutoCAD), aunque incluso estas aplicaciones requerirán cada vez más de componentes de nube y móvil para ser más eficientes al largo plazo.

Gracias a Node.js y Amazon Lambda, y a frameworks móviles como Phonegap/Córdoba o el Ionic Framework, Javascript continuará solidificándose como el lenguaje de programación más importante a aprender junto a C, Java, Swift, y hasta cierta medida, Python. Incluso, Javascript poco a poco se está convirtiendo en un reemplazo para todos esos otros lenguajes, con la posible excepción de C/C++ (que continuará reinando en el nicho de "system-level software" como drivers, sistemas operativos, etc, hasta tanto se adopte más a Swift para esos fines).

31. Los IDEs en la nube despegan con la versión Facebook de Atom
Desde hace varios años vengo vaticinando la importancia que eventual tendrán los IDEs (los entornos integrados de desarrollo de software) alojados en la nube, y creo que en el 2017 por fin veremos el primer despegue semi-notable de esta tecnología (que en mi opinión será la forma de desarrollar software hacia futuro) gracias a las adaptaciones que hizo Facebook al Web IDE Atom (y que llama "Atom in Orbit"), que permite que ahora funcione 100% alojado en la nube por medio de navegadores web, y con acceso a recursos locales.

32. Mundos virtuales sociales en VR por fin una realidad
Hasta ahora cuando hablamos de uno interactuar en "mundos virtuales" realmente nos referíamos a ser parte de alguna experiencia en la pantalla de una PC, laptop, tableta o incluso celular, utilizando un avatar (un personaje digital que nos representa en un mundo virtual), renderizado en 3D como la mayoría de juegos de consolas como la PlayStation e o el Xbox One, pero eso en el 2017 empezará a cambiar...

A diferencia de juegos o mundos que vemos en nuestras pantallas (como el clásico y adelantado-a-su-tiempo Second Life), ahora gracias a gafas de Realidad Virtual de bajo costo (y eventualmente a tecnologías de Realidad Aumentada/Mixta más prácticas y baratas), por fin podremos estar literalmente *dentro* del mundo virtual, el cual podría ser desde una versión mejorada de SecondLife hasta una nueva red social virtual (como vTime o Facebook VR), o desde una experiencia cinemática interactiva hasta una nueva generación de vídeo-juegos.

33. Adicción a VR se empieza a notar con en PSVR
Una de las más grandes preocupaciones entre expertos de Realidad Virtual es los posibles efectos adictivos de la VR en la población.

Hasta ahora eso nunca había sido un problema debido al nicho que era la VR y al contenido relativamente limitado en existencia, pero ahora con la salida del PlayStation VR (PSVR) creo que este 2017 será el año en que veremos muchos padres protestando de que sus hijos están "perdidos" dentro del PSVR por horas muertas.

Posibilidades: 70%


34. Surge necesidad de poner un rating a las experiencias virtuales
A diferencia de una película de terror, en donde tú ves todo en una pantalla y tu persona sabe que estás simplemente viendo algo, y que de asustarte solo tienes que mirar para otro lado, con la Realidad Virtual existe un fenómeno totalmente diferente en donde tu persona literalmente se siente "dentro" de la experiencia. Eso significa que (siguiendo el ejemplo de una película o experiencia de terror) que cualquier evento psicológico es amplificando exponencialmente, lo que puede provocar emociones extremadamente fuertes, y lo peor de todo es que si miras a otro lado tu continúas dentro del mundo virtual, creando esto una sensación bastante intensa que juega con tus sentidos e instintos.

Esto va a conllevar a que tarde o temprano veamos casos de personas que sufrirán grandes daños psicológicos (o incluso físicos, en el caso de ataques cardíacos) que conllevarán a que tarde o temprano se tenga que legislar para que las experiencias virtuales sean clasificadas de forma similar a como se clasifican películas y programas de TV, con el agregado de que se tendrá que especificar claramente los riesgos que se corren al experimentar tal experiencia.

Y noten que yo mismo ya he probado varías experiencias terroríficas en VR, y les puedo asegurar que a diferencia de algunas películas, estas crearían efectos bastante potentes en mentes jóvenes o que no son aptas para este tipo de experiencias.

38. Noticias ficticias crecen a ser un verdadero dolor de cabeza
He aquí una estadística personal: Yo diría que aproximadamente el 70% de todas las noticias que mis amigos me envían por redes sociales y mensajería, son falsas. Y este es un problema que está pasando de ser una curiosidad (o molestia), a un verdadero problema que está teniendo graves consecuencias para toda la población.

Incluso, se estima que buena parte de reciente batalla electoral en los EEUU se peleó en Facebook, con cientos de noticias falsas favoreciendo a uno que otro candidato.

Y este problema apenas está empezando y se acentuará en el 2017, particularmente debido a que los que reciben estas noticias rara vez se molestan en revisar las fuentes, o incluso a utilizar el sentido común, prefiriendo mejor creer lo que quieren y de paso seguir esparciendo este tipo de noticias hasta convertirlas en virales, lo que de paso se ha convertido en un gran negocio para los spammers.

El 97% de los analistas dicen que conforme continuemos automatizando todo, que se perderán más empleos humanos y que nos acercamos a una grave crisis laboral. Yo soy de la minoría que opina que nuevos tipos de empleos se crearán, que la fuerza laboral si declina será solo temporalmente (hasta que una nueva generación pueda ser entrenada en nuevos tipos de empleos rápidamente, gracias a tecnologías como la VR), y que al final todo estará bien. Llámenme optimista.

45. Microsoft Azure a ser el competidor principal de Amazon AWS
La plataforma Microsoft Azure (y no los servicios de Nube de Google) se verá como el principal competidor de Amazon AWS, aunque continuará en un segundo lugar debido a la gran ventaja en años, experiencia, confianza de clientes e inversión e infraestructura que le lleva Amazon. Sin embargo aun así, Microsoft Azure tendrá un crecimiento estelar en el 2017.

47. Anuncios en Facebook continúan haciendo daño a los anuncios de Google
Hace años que la plataforma de Facebook la considero más efectiva que la de Google en muchos aspectos en términos de colocación de anuncios, pero ya para el 2017 se hará evidente que el crecimiento de Facebook en este espacio será tal que por primera vez le empezará a ocasionar serios daños a los ingresos de Google AdSense/AdWords, lo que podría eventualmente afectar el valor de las acciones de la empresa.

48. El Alexa Phone
¿Recuerdan el celular de Amazon que predije tan pronto lo vi que sería un desastre debido a su precio y funcionalidad, y que fue cancelado apenas semanas después debido a su extremadamente mal recibimiento en el mercado? Pues creo que el momento está apropiado para que Amazon utilice su marca Alexa para hacer un nuevo intento con un celular más sencillo, de más bajo costo (por debajo de US$199 dólares), y con su diferenciación estelar siendo el asistente digital Alexa. Sin embargo aunque creo el tiempo es apropiado, es también posible que Amazon prefiera concentrar sus esfuerzos mejor en otros productos con Alexa que no sean celulares.

49. Apple reemplaza Intel x86 por ARM en algunas de sus Macs
Apple es una empresa que le gusta controlar todo su ecosistema, y una dependencia que tiene actualmente es la de sus procesadores en su linea Mac, los cuales dependen de su proveedor Intel y la arquitectura x86, pero como he vaticinado por años aquí en eliax, en algún momento Apple haría sus procesadores seria ?A? tan potentes que estos podrían reemplazar lo mejor de Intel, particularmente al atar a estos íntimamente con macOS, y creo que el momento propicio para ellos es precisamente este 2017, en donde Apple podría transicionar o toda su linea o al menos su linea de MacBooks a estos procesadores con arquitectura ARM.

Habría que ver si Apple dependería de terceros para que simplemente recompilen sus Apps para que funcionen con macOS ARM, or si proveerá algún tipo de emulación x86 para aplicaciones ?clásicas?.

Una ventaja que tiene Apple es que podría obtener un mismo chip con 8 o incluso 16 o 32 núcleos (para modelos ?Pro?) a un precio similar o menor que un procesador Intel de 2 o 4 núcleos, de paso incluyendo en estos chips circuitos especializados para acelerar funciones específicas del sistema operativo para hacer de estos en la práctica tan rápidos o más rápidos que chips de Intel.

Conforme aumenta la inteligencia, eficiencia y especialización de los chatbots (programas de chat que chatean o hablan contigo como si fueran seres humanos), estos empezarán a desplazar trabajos humanos de los Call Centers, ahorrando costos y ofreciendo un servicio más rápido y eficiente (no porque el chatbot sea más rápido o eficiente, sino porque es posible lanzar cientos o miles de ellos a la vez para así no hacer esperar a los clientes en lineas de llamada o pantallas de chat). Y como sub-predicción, veremos por el momento muchos humanos quejándose de que prefieren hablar mejor con un ser humano?

52. Whatsapp aumenta el dolor de cabeza de las empresas de telecomunicaciones tradicionales
Como vaticinado en varios artículos anteriores acá en eliax, y en mis charlas, estamos rápidamente llegando a un punto en donde las compañías tradicionales de telecomunicaciones (que ofrecen teléfonos alambrados, servicios a celulares, internet, y TV por cable) empezarán a perder sus mayores fuentes de ingresos y empezarán a transformarse en empresas que simplemente moverán datos por la red.

Esto se debe a que programas modernos de mensajería ya están haciendo casi innecesario el hacer llamadas de larga distancia por los medios tradicionales, así como hace tiempo ya hicieron obsoleto el mercado de los minimensajes SMS/MMS. Y como si fuera poco, servicios como Netflix, Amazon Video, HBO Go, Hulu y iTunes están poco a poco terminando la dependencia de TV por cable.

Pero el golpe más duro quizás va a ser la creciente adopción de llamadas de voz y video por Whatsapp, que poco a poco se está convirtiendo en el estándar por defecto para la comunicación global inter-plataforma.

Y a propósito, me gustaría que llegara el tiempo cuando Whatsapp ya no depende de números celulares para la identificación de sus usuarios, y que mejor opte por un nombre similar a los utilizados en Twitter.

62. Social Media como un departamento estándar en las empresas
Hoy día el concepto de Social Media es tratado como un simple subconjunto o de Relaciones Públicas o de Mercadeo, pero como se está haciendo evidente desde hace tiempo estamos llegando al momento en donde las empresas se darán cuenta que necesitan de todo un departamento solo para manejar este concepto en sus empresas, dada la importancia que tienen las redes sociales hoy día en la interacción con clientes.

Kodi hoy día es la plataforma que permite descargas ilegales quizás más popular para ver películas pirateadas por Internet, y aunque es un tanto complicado configurarlo la primera vez, después del hecho su uso es bastante sencillo (muchos lo consideran incluso más sencillo que Netflix en algunos aspectos), permitiendo que las personas que no desean esperar a que lleguen las películas a sus mercados, o que no quieran pagar sumas exhorbitantes en cines, o que quieran versiones subtituladas de sus películas favoritas, puedan hacerlo de forma sencilla. Este modelo de sencillez obligará a los estudios a que reformen su forma de distribuir películas, hacia un concepto más global y estandarizado, sin embargo este proceso podría tardar años.

Así como vimos una revolución con Uber en sistema de taxis, así veremos una revolución nacer en el mercado del transporte de carga (por medio de camiones con furgones) por medio de camiones automatizados con conductores/choferes humanos. Esto permitirá un sistema mucho más eficiente y seguro de transporte, sin los peligros de conductores que se duermen en el camino, o que se roban la mercancía, o que llegan tarde a sus destinos. Esperen las huelgan de los gremios de tales industrias similar a lo que le pasó a Uber.

Tarde o temprano (si llega el momento en que monedas virtuales como bitcoin empiezan a valer una parte significativa de las transacciones globales), los estados empezarán a presionar para legislar el uso de estas, aunque notarán rápidamente que no será tan fácil como regular las monedas tradicionales, y una forma que tratarán de hacerlo es por medio del uso de Blockchain en transacciones que van más allá de los bitcoins mismos, y que se extiendan a todas las transacciones con (y entre) instituciones financieras para incluir incluso las cosas más mundanas entre consumidores.

77. Primera impresora 3D por menos de US$99
Ya tenemos impresoras 3D por menos de US$250 dólares, pero estoy seguro que alguna empresa (quizás una bajo el radar) debe estar pensando en crear una sencilla impresora 3D que cueste US$99 dólares. ¿Cómo? Pues no necesariamente haciendo dinero en la impresora, sino más bien en los materiales de impresión. Me imagino que tal empresa debería también incluir alguna herramienta en forma de App que permite hacer objetos de forma bastante sencilla, o al menos personalidad objetos pre-existentes. Si no vemos esto este año, quizás el próximo a más tardar.

78. El Apple AirCharger
Estuve pensando después de lo que escribí sobre el iPhone 8, que nada impediría a Apple utilizar la misma tecnología inalámbrica de este en otros dispositivos, y de paso ofrecer un dispositivo al que llamo el AirCharger que permite recargar la batería de estos de forma inalámbrica. Un ejemplo sería un nuevo teclado, un nuevo ratón, una nueva trackpad, y quizás incluso hasta un Apple Pencil 2 (¿el "Air Pencil"?).

eliax, para mentes curiosas...Hola amig@s lectores,

Se que eliax por estos rumbos ha estado escaso de contenido (estoy en un nuevo proyecto que les dejaré saber el próximo año que ocupa casi todo mi tiempo), pero aquí les comparto un video en donde la gente de Startup Grind (Powered by Google) me entrevistó por alrededor de 1 hora, hablando de todo tipo de temas eliaxísticos, que van desde la singularidad tecnológica y el futuro del trabajo, hasta cibernética, Realidad Virtual, emprendimientos, consejos, y otros temas más de mucho interés y relevancia hoy día.

Gracias Alan Delmonte (el mismo de mi entrevista en Planeta Íntimo) por invitarme en representación de la organización Startup Grind, a Google por su apoyo a este tipo de proyectos, al colegio New Horizons en Santo Domingo, República Dominicana, por alojar el evento, y a mis amigos de Digital Reality por entretener al público antes del evento con los últimos equipos de Realidad Virtual.

Y como siempre, expresen sus opiniones en los comentarios pues estos los reviso con regularidad y comentaré o responderé a sus preguntas o inquietudes.

¡Espero disfruten del video tanto como disfrutamos Alan y yo!

Episodio 005 a continuación... (enlace YouTube)...


eliax, para mentes curiosas...Hola amig@s lectores,

He acá algunas notas sobre este episodio:

1. La patente de Sony que cito en el artículo la pueden leer ustedes mismos en este enlace. Noten que aparte de lo que explico en el video, la patente habla también de que este sistema permitirá control de zoom (acercamientos de imagen), así como control de apertura de la cámara (para determinar la cantidad de luz que entrará al sensor, dependiendo de la imagen a capturar).

2. Este episodio como notarán lo grabé de forma improvisada con mi celular, ya que estoy a unos cuantos miles de kilómetros lejos de mi cámara, y no quería dejar de publicar un video este fin de semana... :)

3. El artículo del IrixPhone del cual hablo al inicio del video lo pueden leer en este enlace acá mismo en eliax.

4. Otro artículo que recomiendo leer acá en eliax es otro (también del 2010) titulado "Reflexiones 24: Control, Derechos y Privacidad con nuestros sentidos...", pues creo ilustra un poco el futuro que nos espera con estas tecnologías.

5. Noten que como es costumbre en el blog, debajo de este artículo hay una sección titulada "Previamente en eliax", en donde podrán encontrar varios otros artículos relacionados a este episodio de hoy.

6. Si se preguntan quien es ese que aparece en el minuto 5:50, es Deadpool, el personaje cómico-sexual de Marvel, y de quien les hable recientemente en eliax.

Episodio 004 a continuación


eliax, para mentes curiosas...Hola amig@s lectores,

Acá les tengo algunas notas adicionales sobre este episodio:

1. Casi al final del video digo que hay dos tipos de empresas que podrían tener interés en comprar a Tesla, ¡pero solo hablé del primer tipo de empresas! (las de automóviles tradicionales). El segundo tipo de empresas serían empresas de tecnología de vanguardia actual en el espacio de consumidores masivos, como Apple, Google, Microsoft, Amazon, Samsung, Facebook, etc...

La razón por la cual este tipo de empresas estarían interesadas en Tesla, es porque se ha hecho evidente que el futuro son automóviles autonómos (es decir, que se manejen solos), lo que significa que los usuarios tendrán muchísimo más tiempo disponible dentro de sus automóviles para otras actividades (como leer, ver noticias, películas, video-conferencia, compras, ventas, etc), por lo que de repente el automóvil se convertirá en toda una nueva plataforma para consumo de contenido digital, y quien controle eso controlará una industria de consumo valorada en miles de millones de dólares...

2. Si quieren tener una idea del tamaño de la Gigafactory de Elon Musk, contemplen esta imagen en donde comparan el tamaño de esa fábrica con grandes estructuras del mundo (fuente). Noten como la gran Pirámide de Egipto cabe unas 10 veces dentro de esa fábrica...

3. Si quieren ver la tendencia con relación a autos eléctricos, noten la noticia que compartí via twitter hace unos días: En Holanda están proponiendo una ley para en el 2025 prohibir la venta de vehículos que no sean eléctricos en esa nación.

4. Asumo que notaron el corte de la cámara alrededor del minuto 18 con 25 segundos. Eso no fue que detuve la toma y continué sino que la cámara solo graba archivos de 4GB a la vez en la tarjeta de almacenamiento, y rompe los archivos, y justo en ese momento hizo el corte. Tengo que ver cómo lidiar con esos saltos en un futuro para videos que se aproximen a los 20 minutos...

5. Y sí, lo se, debo hablar quizás un poco más lento, pero vayamos un paso a la vez, ¿vale? :) Nunca había hecho esto de videos, e incluso como notarán hablé por unos 20 minutos sin guión alguno (soy amante de la espontaneidad, ya veremos hasta cuanto aguanto sin utilizar un teleprompter o ayuda externa).

6. Otro proyecto importante de Elon Musk que se me olvidó mencionar en el video es el de las baterías hogareñas de Tesla Energy. Afortunadamente ya había escrito todo un artículo al respecto en eliax previamente al respecto que pueden leer en este enlace.

7. Para los curiosos: La fortuna de Elon Musk está actualmente valorada en unos US$13,500 Millones de dólares.

8. Si quieren ver un video de 360 grados interactivo en YouTube desde el punto de vista en donde aterrizó el cohete de SpaceX, deleitense en este enlace.

9. Si quieren ver un video con detalle de los autos de Tesla, recomiendo ver este.

          Growth Hacking with Virtual Assistants   
Virtual Assistant Slides 
I first heard of virtual assistants when I read The Four Hour Work Week by +Tim Ferriss. I even tried hiring a VA back in 2007 and found that it took more time to manage the VA than to do to kinds of tasks that I was asking him to do. We were getting ready to leave the country and I wanted to find storage for my Tesla Roadster which I was sure would arrive before we left to live in Saigon.  (It didn't.) In retrospect, trying to explain to a guy in India that I needed a garage space for my electric car, was maybe not the right task.

Fast forward to 2013 and I'm trying again. After reading APE where +Guy Kawasaki  recommends contacting reviewers on Amazon and inviting them to review your book, it got me thinking. Could I leverage the same group of folks to get them to review the Sensr.net webcam recording service? How could I find reviewers on Amazon that might be interested in reviewing or blogging about Sensr.net?  

Camera Product Reviews

It's all about the camera models.  To use Sensr.net you need to have a webcam, IP camera, or network security camera. In fact that's how we get most of our users today. They are trying to figure out how to use their Foscam or Dlink camera to FTP images or setup the firewall.  They Google "Foscam FTP" and end up on our site.

The Amazon reviews are a great place to find folks who know what an IP camera is to begin with. The Foscam FI8910W has 3,488 reviews right now. To put that into persepective, the Sensr.net site has fewer than 20 thousand registered emails at this point.

So how can we leverage these product reviews to spread the word about Sensr.net? My idea was to pick camera models that are popular on Sensr.net and then go through the reviews and create a list of folks who have reviewed the cameras. My friend Erbil Karaman suggested to me that to effectively use a VA, you must create a script of what you want them to do. I pretended I was the VA and created a Google spreadsheet with the information I want to track and practiced going through the reviews while filling out the spreadsheet. It seemed pretty simple.  Now to find some VAs.

The oDesk Experience

After listening to a recent Gweek podcast where +Kevin Kelly discusses hiring virtual assistants to help with his new book Cool Tools, I was inspired to go hire some VAs. I decided to use oDesk for this, mainly because I already had an account there, but this was my first time actually posting a job. It went very smoothly. Within an hour I had verified my account, created a job posting, and folks around the world were applying.

I decided to choose a few different VAs from different parts of the world to see how they would compare. So far I've hired three VAs and each one is working on a different camera model that I care about. I'm paying between $1.17 and $3.33 per hour and definitely seeing a difference in the quality of work. You get what you pay for.

When this is all said and done, I should have a hundred or so folks who seem to care about IP cameras.  At that point, I need to figure out how to contact them.  I'll probably try sending a personal email, tell them about Sensr.net, and see if they are interested in updating their review on Amazon to include a few words about how our service works with the camera that they reviewed.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.  Please leave a comment if you have other suggestions on how to use VAs or the data that they are collecting.



          Como Elon Musk foi de empreendedor a principal visionário do séc. 21 - até agora   
Elon Musk (Foto: Justin Sullivan)


 

Elon Musk é um dos principais visionários do século 21. O sul-africano, que completa 46 anos nesta quarta-feira (28), não é só a mente por trás da Tesla - a principal montadora de carros elétricos do mundo -, mas também está à frente de outros projetos que são vanguarda em áreas como energia solar e até exploração espacial. Claro que toda essa genialidade não vem assim, só em boas ideias: Musk também tem um histórico de teorias meio malucas - e algumas boas frases. Conheça.

 

Caminhada até o sucesso
Musk já mostrava uma curiosidade impressionante aos 10 anos de idade, quando devorava livros que iam de O Pequeno Príncipe a Física Avançada 2. Com 12, criou seu próprio videogame e vendeu o projeto por US$ 500. Aos 17, foi estudar no Canadá e, um ano depois, se transferiu para a Universidade da Pensilvânia, nos Estados Unidos, onde tinha família. Ao se formar em física e extendeu o período de estudos para conseguir diploma de administração também. 

O empreendedor
Cerca de três anos após se formar, Elon Musk fundou a Zip2 - uma empresa que fornecia soluções online para empresas de mídia - com US$ 2 mil emprestados de seu pai. Ele a vendeu cinco anos depois para a Compaq por US$ 340 milhões.

Com US$ 10 milhões, fundou a X.com - o embrião de um serviço que você deve usar no seu cotidiano, o PayPal. Com a venda para o eBay por US$ 1.5 bilhão em 2002, ele poderia ter se aposentado. Mas preferiu apostar sua fortuna em dois projetos: SpaceX, focada no desenvolvimento de sondas espaciais, e a Tesla, atualmente a principal montadora quando o assunto é carro elétrico.

O que tem feito agora
Além de assinar como CEO de Tesla e SpaceX, o empresário está envolvido em mais alguns projetos. Um deles é o SolarCity, que desenvolve placas de captação de energia solar para substituir o material dos telhados das casas. Há também o Hyperloop - uma espécie de "aerotrem" do famigerado Levy Fidelix com embasamento técnico - e o The Boring Company, onde ele propõe "solucionar os problemas de trânsito em Los Angeles" cavando grandes túneis (esse até levou uma gongada do governo dos Estados Unidos).

As polêmicas
Como todo visionário, Elon Musk tem opiniões fortes - algumas bizarras, inclusive. A melhor delas foi quando, num painel sobre tecnologia, disse que existe uma possibilidade real de vivermos em uma realidade programa. Mais Matrix, impossível.

"O melhor argumento para acreditar nisso é que há 40 anos, jogávamos Pong, dois retângulos e um ponto. Hoje temos fotorealismo e simulações 3D com milhões de pessoas jogando simultaneamente no mundo todo. E fica maior a cada ano. Quando a realidade virtual e aumentada entrar forte na jogada, vai começar a ficar difícil distinguir games da realidade", explicou.

Ele também é um forte defensor da colonização de Marte. Em 2016, ele afirmou que a SpaceX mandará seres humanos ao planeta vermelho. O grande problema é que os módulos espaciais dele tem sofrido diversas explosões em lançamentos, o que fez com que as ações da companhia caíssem. 


As melhores frases

"Falhar é uma opção aqui. Se você não falha, é sinal que não está inovando o suficiente".

"Se alguma coisa é importante para você, mesmo que a probabilidade seja desfavorável, você deve insistir". 

"O primeiro passo é estabelecer que algo é possível; depois, isso vai acontecer".

"É incrível quantas coisas você pode explodir. Sou sortudo por ter todos os meus dedos" - sobre sua infância cheia de experimentos e curiosidade.

"É ok ter os ovos em uma cesta, desde que você tenha o controle sobre ela".

"Eu não crio empresas apenas por criar. Elas existem para que as coisas sejam feitas."

@maiyannah @trev @awg why's that? Given Musk's history of doing things like retiring Tesla's electric car patents, I'm cautiously optimistic
          Did what I think happened happen?    
A couple Sundays ago (April 11) I went running, as I do a few times a week. As I paused to stretch at the top of Warren Street, I noticed a New York State Police vehicle in the lot of Todd Farrell's garage. I figured the trooper inside the well marked SUV was looking to nab drivers who failed to stop fully at the three-way intersection.

A Tesla appeared and rolled through the stop sign. The cop didn't budge. A Mercedes followed and also rolled through. Still no reaction from the trooper. A few seconds later, a BMW came up Warren Street (it sounds like I was at the corner of Wilshire and Rodeo, not Warren and Worth), made a full stop, and turned right onto Worth Avenue. The trooper flashed his lights and pulled over his target.

When I later related my puzzlement over the officer's selectivity to my partner, she asked if I had noticed the skin color of the drivers. Indeed I had: the BMW driver was, shall we say, less fair skinned than the other two drivers. Perhaps Middle Eastern or Hispanic. Sadly, it wouldn't be surprising if this was the reason he was pulled over, although I sure hope not. In any event, I'm disappointed in myself for not trying to learn more as the events were unfolding. The next time, I will stick my nose out a bit farther. And Mr. Bimmer Driver, if you're out there, I'd love to hear the story.

Whether the predatory tactic of initial low pricing, killing competition followed by high prices under monopoly control can work depends on the cost of getting into the market and the availability of investment capital.

          World lithium battery production will nearly triple by 2021 and China will maintain dominant market share   
Chinese battery companies have plans for additional factories with the capacity to pump out more than 120 gigawatt-hours a year by 2021, according to a report published this week by Bloomberg Intelligence. That’s enough to supply batteries for around 1.5 million Tesla Model S vehicles or 13.7 million Toyota Prius Plug-in Hybrids per year, according to Bloomberg New Energy Finance. In 2018, Tesla’s Gigafactory will produce up to 35 gigawatt-hours of battery cells annually. Roughly 55 percent of global lithium-ion battery production is already based in China, compared with 10 percent in the U.S. By 2021, China’s share is forecast

          LITHIUM BOOM 2.0 – THE WORLD’S HOTTEST COMMODITY JUST GOT HOTTER   

Lithium is the hottest commodity on the planet right now, and investors trying to profit from it don’t understand how to invest in it.

MOST ARE MAKING A CRITICAL MISTAKE and investing in the wrong companies.

That’s because, in this game, lithium GRADE is the key to profitability.

Why? First, lithium...

Lithium is the most important component of electric vehicles, high-energy batteries, power storage, a vast menu of consumer electronics—and even Nirvana-reaching drugs.

Even today’s hyper-growth EV industry is just the tip of the iceberg compared with where it's headed to. Bloomberg New Energy Finance predicts that 35% of all new vehicle sales by 2040 will be EVs, equivalent to 100 million units every year.

Tesla’s “halo effect” will make astute investors lifetime riches because that's 100 times greater than current production.

All that growth will present some serious supply chain challenges. But in this massive opportunity, the key to everything is GRADE. Not all lithium is equal.

The majors can increase production, but only to a certain degree--and not nearly fast enough to meet growing demand. If you are looking for outsized gains on your lithium investment, you need to expand your horizon to new entrants with high-quality reserves.

The #1 secret to hitting a homerun with lithium is watching the grade. And for this, follow the lead of China, which has turned its attention to Chile—one of the world’s richest sources of high-grade, low-cost lithium.

And … one little-known miner is perfectly positioned to take advantage of this space while China, Tesla and everyone else battle it out—Bearing Resources (TSX.V:BRZ; OTCQB:BRGRF).

This pure-play junior miner has just acquired a world-class resource and the second-largest lithium project in the world—IN CHILE.

They’ve already undertaken a $7-million exploration program that hit pay dirt. The drilling campaign hit on every single hole—in high-grade brine. In fact, it’s one of the highest-grade projects in the world—second only to the Salar de Atacama, which, right now, produces 100 percent of Chile’s lithium

          Wave–particle duality   

In physics and chemistry, wave–particle duality is the concept that all matter exhibits both wave-like and particle-like properties. Being a central concept of quantum mechanics, this duality addresses the inadequacy of classical concepts like "particle" and "wave" in fully describing the behavior of quantum-scale objects. Orthodox interpretations of quantum mechanics explain this ostensible paradox as a fundamental property of the Universe, while alternative interpretations explain the duality as an emergent, second-order consequence of various limitations of the observer. This treatment focuses on explaining the behavior from the perspective of the widely used Copenhagen interpretation, in which wave–particle duality is one aspect of the concept of complementarity, that a phenomenon can be viewed in one way or in another, but not both simultaneously.

The idea of duality originated in a debate over the nature of light and matter dating back to the 1600s, when competing theories of light were proposed by Christiaan Huygens and Isaac Newton: light was thought either to consist of waves (Huygens) or of corpuscles [particles] (Newton). Through the work of Max Planck, Albert Einstein, Louis de Broglie, Arthur Compton, Niels Bohr, and many others, current scientific theory holds that all particles also have a wave nature (and vice versa).[1] This phenomenon has been verified not only for elementary particles, but also for compound particles like atoms and even molecules. In fact, according to traditional formulations of non-relativistic quantum mechanics, wave–particle duality applies to all objects, even macroscopic ones; but because of their small wavelengths, the wave properties of macroscopic objects cannot be detected

Brief history of wave and particle viewpoints

Aristotle was one of the first to publicly hypothesize as to the nature of light, proposing that it was a disturbance in the element air (hence it was a wave-like phenomenon). On the other hand, Democritus – the original atomist – argued that all things in the universe, including light, were composed of indivisible sub-components (light being some form of solar atom).[3] At the beginning of the 11th century, the Arabic scientist Alhazen wrote the first comprehensive treatise on optics; describing refraction, reflection, and the operation of a pinhole lens via rays of light traveling from the point of emission to the eye. He asserted that these rays were composed of particles of light. In 1630, René Descartes popularized and accredited in the West the opposing wave description in his treatise on light, showing that the behavior of light could be re-created by modeling wave-like disturbances in his universal medium (plenum). Beginning in 1670 and progressing over three decades, Isaac Newton developed and championed his corpuscular hypothesis, arguing that the perfectly straight lines of reflection demonstrated light's particle nature; only particles could travel in such straight lines. He explained refraction by positing that particles of light accelerated laterally upon entering a denser medium. Around the same time, Newton's contemporaries – Robert Hooke, Christian Huygens, and Augustin-Jean Fresnel – mathematically refined the wave viewpoint, showing that if light traveled at different speeds in different media (such as water and air), refraction could be easily explained as the medium-dependent propagation of light waves. The resulting Huygens–Fresnel principle was extremely successful at reproducing light's behavior and, subsequently supported by Thomas Young's discovery of double-slit interference, effectively disbanded the particle light camp.[4]

Thomas Young's sketch of two-slit diffraction of waves, 1803.

The final blow against corpuscular theory came when James Clerk Maxwell discovered that he could combine four simple equations, which had been previously discovered, along with a slight modification to describe self propogating waves of oscillating electric and magnetic fields. When the propagation speed of these electromagnetic waves was calculated, the speed of light fell out. It quickly became apparent that visible light, ultraviolet light, and infrared light (phenomenon thought previously to be unrelated) were all electromagnetic waves of differing frequency. The wave theory had prevailed – or at least it seemed.

While the 19th century had seen the success of the wave theory at describing light, it had also witnessed the rise of the atomic theory at describing matter. In 1789, Antoine Lavoisier securely differentiated chemistry from alchemy by introducing rigor and precision into his laboratory techniques; allowing him to deduce the conservation of mass and categorize many new chemical elements and compounds. However, the nature of these essential chemical elements remained unknown. In 1799, Joseph Louis Proust advanced chemistry towards the atom by showing that elements combined in definite proportions. This led John Dalton to resurrect Democritus' atom in 1803, when he proposed that elements were invisible sub components; which explained why the varying oxides of metals (e.g. stannous oxide and cassiterite, SnO and SnO2 respectively) possess a 1:2 ratio of oxygen to one another. But Dalton and other chemists of the time had not considered that some elements occur in monatomic form (like Helium) and others in diatomic form (like Hydrogen), or that water was H2O, not the simpler and more intuitive HO – thus the atomic weights presented at the time were varied and often incorrect. Additionally, the formation of HO by two parts of hydrogen gas and one part of oxygen gas would require an atom of oxygen to split in half (or two half-atoms of hydrogen to come together). This problem was solved by Amedeo Avogadro, who studied the reacting volumes of gases as they formed liquids and solids. By postulating that equal volumes of elemental gas contain an equal number of atoms, he was able to show that H2O was formed from two parts H2 and one part O2. By discovering diatomic gases, Avogadro completed the basic atomic theory, allowing the correct molecular formulas of most known compounds – as well as the correct weights of atoms – to be deduced and categorized in a consistent manner. The final stroke in classical atomic theory came when Dimitri Mendeleev saw an order in recurring chemical properties, and created a table presenting the elements in unprecedented order and symmetry. But there were holes in Mendeleev's table, with no element to fill them in. His critics initially cited this as a fatal flaw, but were silenced when new elements were discovered that perfectly fit into these holes. The success of the periodic table effectively converted any remaining opposition to atomic theory; even though no single atom had ever been observed in the laboratory, chemistry was now an atomic science.

The turn of the century and the paradigm shift

Particles of electricity?

At the close of the 19th century, the reductionism of atomic theory began to advance into the atom itself; determining, through physics, the nature of the atom and the operation of chemical reactions. Electricity, first thought to be a fluid, was now understood to consist of particles called electrons. This was first demonstrated by J. J. Thomson in 1897 when, using a cathode ray tube, he found that an electrical charge would travel across a vacuum (which would possess infinite resistance in classical theory). Since the vacuum offered no medium for an electric fluid to travel, this discovery could only be explained via a particle carrying a negative charge and moving through the vacuum. This electron flew in the face of classical electrodynamics, which had successfully treated electricity as a fluid for many years (leading to the invention of batteries, electric motors, dynamos, and arc lamps). More importantly, the intimate relation between electric charge and electromagnetism had been well documented following the discoveries of Michael Faraday and Clerk Maxwell. Since electromagnetism was known to be a wave generated by a changing electric or magnetic field (a continuous, wave-like entity itself) an atomic/particle description of electricity and charge was a non sequitur. And classical electrodynamics was not the only classical theory rendered incomplete.

Radiation quantization

Black-body radiation, the emission of electromagnetic energy due to an object's heat, could not be explained from classical arguments alone. The equipartition theorem of classical mechanics, the basis of all classical thermodynamic theories, stated that an object's energy is partitioned equally among the object's vibrational modes. This worked well when describing thermal objects, whose vibrational modes were defined as the speeds of their constituents atoms, and the speed distribution derived from egalitarian partitioning of these vibrational modes closely matched experimental results. Speeds much higher than the average speed were suppressed by the fact that kinetic energy is quadratic – doubling the speed requires four times the energy – thus the number of atoms occupying high energy modes (high speeds) quickly drops off because the constant, equal partition can excite successively fewer atoms. Low speed modes would ostensibly dominate the distribution, since low speed modes would require ever less energy, and prima facie a zero-speed mode would require zero energy and its energy partition would contain an infinite number of atoms. But this would only occur in the absence of atomic interaction; when collisions are allowed, the low speed modes are immediately suppressed by jostling from the higher energy atoms, exciting them to higher energy modes. An equilibrium is swiftly reached where most atoms occupy a speed proportional to the temperature of the object (thus defining temperature as the average kinetic energy of the object).

But applying the same reasoning to the electromagnetic emission of such a thermal object was not so successful. It had been long known that thermal objects emit light. Hot metal glows red, and upon further heating white (this is the underlying principle of the incandescent bulb). Since light was known to be waves of electromagnetism, physicists hoped to describe this emission via classical laws. This became known as the black body problem. Since the equipartition theorem worked so well in describing the vibrational modes of the thermal object itself, it was trivial to assume that it would perform equally well in describing the radiative emission of such objects. But a problem quickly arose when determining the vibrational modes of light. To simplify the problem (by limiting the vibrational modes) a lowest allowable wavelength was defined by placing the thermal object in a cavity. Any electromagnetic mode at equilibrium (i.e. any standing wave) could only exist if it used the walls of the cavities as nodes. Thus there were no waves/modes with a wavelength larger than twice the length (L) of the cavity.

Standing waves in a cavity

The first few allowable modes would therefore have wavelengths of : 2L, L, 2L/3, L/2, etc. (each successive wavelength adding one node to the wave). However, while the wavelength could never exceed 2l, there was no such limit on decreasing the wavelength, and adding nodes to reduce the wavelength could proceed ad infinitum. Suddenly it became apparent that the short wavelength modes completely dominated the distribution, since ever shorter wavelength modes could be crammed into the cavity. If each mode received an equal partition of energy, the short wavelength modes would consume all the energy. This became clear when plotting the Rayleigh–Jeans law which, while correctly predicting the intensity of long wavelength emissions, predicted infinite total energy as the intensity diverges to infinity for short wavelengths. This became known as the ultraviolet catastrophe.

The solution arrived in 1900 when Max Planck hypothesized that the frequency of light emitted by the black body depended on the frequency of the oscillator that emitted it, and the energy of these oscillators increased linearly with frequency (according to his constant h, where E = hν). This was not an unsound proposal considering that macroscopic oscillators operate similarly: when studying five simple harmonic oscillators of equal amplitude but different frequency, the oscillator with the highest frequency possesses the highest energy (though this relationship is not linear like Planck's). By demanding that high-frequency light must be emitted by an oscillator of equal frequency, and further requiring that this oscillator occupy higher energy than one of a lesser frequency, Planck avoided any catastrophe; giving an equal partition to high-frequency oscillators produced successively fewer oscillators and less emitted light. And as in the Maxwell–Boltzmann distribution, the low-frequency, low-energy oscillators were suppressed by the onslaught of thermal jiggling from higher energy oscillators, which necessarily increased their energy and frequency.

The most revolutionary aspect of Planck's treatment of the black body is that it inherently relies on an integer number of oscillators in thermal equilibrium with the electromagnetic field. These oscillators give their entire energy to the electromagnetic field, creating a quantum of light, as often as they are excited by the electromagnetic field, absorbing a quantum of light and beginning to oscillate at the corresponding frequency. Planck had intentionally created an atomic theory of the black body, but had unintentionally generated an atomic theory of light, where the black body never generates quanta of light at a given frequency with an energy less than . However, once realizing that he had quantized the electromagnetic field, he denounced particles of light as a limitation of his approximation, not a property of reality. Never to accept quantum theory, even a genius like Planck could not live with wave–particle duality.

The photoelectric effect illuminated

Yet while Planck had solved the ultraviolet catastrophe by using atoms and a quantized electromagnetic field, most physicists immediately agreed that Planck's "light quanta" were unavoidable flaws in his model. A more complete derivation of black body radiation would produce a fully continuous, fully wave-like electromagnetic field with no quantization. However, in 1905 Albert Einstein took Planck's black body model in itself and saw a wonderful solution to another outstanding problem of the day: the photoelectric effect. Ever since the discovery of electrons eight years previously, electrons had been the thing to study in physics laboratories worldwide. Nikola Tesla discovered in 1901 that when a metal was illuminated by high-frequency light (e.g. ultraviolet light), electrons were ejected from the metal at high energy. This work was based on the previous knowledge that light incident upon metals produces a current, but Tesla was the first to describe it as a particle phenomenon.

The following year, Philipp Lenard discovered that (within the range of the experimental parameters he was using) the energy of these ejected electrons did not depend on the intensity of the incoming light, but on its frequency. So if one shines a little low-frequency light upon a metal, a few low energy electrons are ejected. If one now shines a very intense beam of low-frequency light upon the same metal, a whole slew of electrons are ejected; however they possess the same low energy, there are merely more of them. In order to get high energy electrons, one must illuminate the metal with high-frequency light. The more light there is, the more electrons are ejected. Like blackbody radiation, this was at odds with a theory invoking continuous transfer of energy between radiation and matter. However, it can still be explained using a fully classical description of light, as long as matter is quantum mechanical in nature[5]

If one used Planck's energy quanta, and demanded that electromagnetic radiation at a given frequency could only transfer energy to matter in integer multiples of an energy quantum , then the photoelectric effect could be explained very simply. Low-frequency light only ejects low-energy electrons because each electron is excited by the absorption of a single photon. Increasing the intensity of the low-frequency light (increasing the number of photons) only increases the number of excited electrons, not their energy, because the energy of each photon remains low. Only by increasing the frequency of the light, and thus increasing the energy of the photons, can one eject electrons with higher energy. Thus, using Planck's constant h to determine the energy of the photons based upon their frequency, the energy of ejected electrons should also increase linearly with frequency; the slope of the line being Planck's constant. These results were not confirmed until 1915, when Robert Andrews Millikan, who had previously determined the charge of the electron, produced experimental results in perfect accord with Einstein's predictions. While the energy of ejected electrons reflected Planck's constant, the existence of photons was not explicitly proven until the discovery of the anti-bunching effect, of which a modern experiment can be performed in undergraduate-level labs[6]. This phenomenon could only be explained via photons, and not through any semi-classical theory (which could alternatively explain the photoelectric effect). When Einstein received his Nobel Prize in 1921, it was not for his more difficult and mathematically laborious special and general relativity, but for the simple, yet totally revolutionary, suggestion of quantized light. While Einstein's "light quanta" would not be called photons until 1925, but even in 1905 they represented the quintessential example of wave–particle duality. Waves of electromagnetic radiation can only exist as discrete elements, thus acting as a wave and a particle simultaneously.

Developmental milestones

Huygens and Newton

The earliest comprehensive theory of light was advanced by Christiaan Huygens, who proposed a wave theory of light, and in particular demonstrated how waves might interfere to form a wavefront, propagating in a straight line. However, the theory had difficulties in other matters, and was soon overshadowed by Isaac Newton's corpuscular theory of light. That is, Newton proposed that light consisted of small particles, with which he could easily explain the phenomenon of reflection. With considerably more difficulty, he could also explain refraction through a lens, and the splitting of sunlight into a rainbow by a prism. Newton's particle viewpoint went essentially unchallenged for over a century.[7]

Young, Fresnel, and Maxwell

In the early 1800s, the double-slit experiments by Young and Fresnel provided evidence for Huygens' wave theories. The double-slit experiments showed that when light is sent through a grid, a characteristic interference pattern is observed, very similar to the pattern resulting from the interference of water waves; the wavelength of light can be computed from such patterns. The wave view did not immediately displace the ray and particle view, but began to dominate scientific thinking about light in the mid 1800s, since it could explain polarization phenomena that the alternatives could not.[8]

In the late 1800s, James Clerk Maxwell explained light as the propagation of electromagnetic waves according to the Maxwell equations. These equations were verified by experiment by Heinrich Hertz in 1887, and the wave theory became widely accepted.

Planck's formula for black-body radiation

In 1901, Max Planck published an analysis that succeeded in reproducing the observed spectrum of light emitted by a glowing object. To accomplish this, Planck had to make an ad hoc mathematical assumption of quantized energy of the oscillators (atoms of the black body) that emit radiation. It was Einstein who later proposed that it is the electromagnetic radiation itself that is quantized, and not the energy of radiating atoms.

Einstein's explanation of the photoelectric effect

The photoelectric effect. Incoming photons on the left strike a metal plate (bottom), and eject electrons, depicted as flying off to the right.

In 1905, Albert Einstein provided an explanation of the photoelectric effect, a hitherto troubling experiment that the wave theory of light seemed incapable of explaining. He did so by postulating the existence of photons, quanta of light energy with particulate qualities.

In the photoelectric effect, it was observed that shining a light on certain metals would lead to an electric current in a circuit. Presumably, the light was knocking electrons out of the metal, causing current to flow. However, it was also observed that while a dim blue light was enough to cause a current, even the strongest, brightest red light available with the technology of the time caused no current at all. According to the classical theory of light and matter, the strength or amplitude of a light wave was in proportion to its brightness: a bright light should have been easily strong enough to create a large current. Yet, oddly, this was not so.

Einstein explained this conundrum by postulating that the electrons can receive energy from electromagnetic field only in discrete portions (quanta that were called photons): an amount of energy E that was related to the frequency f of the light by

E = h f\,

where h is Planck's constant (6.626 × 10−34 J seconds). Only photons of a high enough frequency (above a certain threshold value) could knock an electron free. For example, photons of blue light had sufficient energy to free an electron from the metal, but photons of red light did not. More intense light above the threshold frequency could release more electrons, but no amount of light (using technology available at the time) below the threshold frequency could release an electron. To "violate" this law would require extremely high intensity lasers which had not yet been invented. Intensity-dependent phenomena have now been studied in detail with such lasers [9]

Einstein was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1921 for his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect.

De Broglie's wavelength

In 1924, Louis-Victor de Broglie formulated the de Broglie hypothesis, claiming that all matter,[10][11] not just light, has a wave-like nature; he related wavelength (denoted as λ), and momentum (denoted as p):

\lambda = \frac{h}{p}

This is a generalization of Einstein's equation above, since the momentum of a photon is given by p = \tfrac{E}{c} and the wavelength by λ = \tfrac{c}{f}, where c is the speed of light in vacuum.

De Broglie's formula was confirmed three years later for electrons (which differ from photons in having a rest mass) with the observation of electron diffraction in two independent experiments. At the University of Aberdeen, George Paget Thomson passed a beam of electrons through a thin metal film and observed the predicted interference patterns. At Bell Labs Clinton Joseph Davisson and Lester Halbert Germer guided their beam through a crystalline grid.

De Broglie was awarded the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1929 for his hypothesis. Thomson and Davisson shared the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1937 for their experimental work.

Heisenberg's uncertainty principle

In his work on formulating quantum mechanics, Werner Heisenberg postulated his uncertainty principle, which states:

\Delta x \Delta p \ge \frac{\hbar}{2}

where

Δ here indicates standard deviation, a measure of spread or uncertainty;
x and p are a particle's position and linear momentum respectively.
\hbar is the reduced Planck's constant (Planck's constant divided by 2π).

Heisenberg originally explained this as a consequence of the process of measuring: Measuring position accurately would disturb momentum and vice-versa, offering an example (the "gamma-ray microscope") that depended crucially on the de Broglie hypothesis. It is now thought, however, that this only partly explains the phenomenon, but that the uncertainty also exists in the particle itself, even before the measurement is made.

In fact, the modern explanation of the uncertainty principle, extending the Copenhagen interpretation first put forward by Bohr and Heisenberg, depends even more centrally on the wave nature of a particle: Just as it is nonsensical to discuss the precise location of a wave on a string, particles do not have perfectly precise positions; likewise, just as it is nonsensical to discuss the wavelength of a "pulse" wave traveling down a string, particles do not have perfectly precise momenta (which corresponds to the inverse of wavelength). Moreover, when position is relatively well defined, the wave is pulse-like and has a very ill-defined wavelength (and thus momentum). And conversely, when momentum (and thus wavelength) is relatively well defined, the wave looks long and sinusoidal, and therefore it has a very ill-defined position.

De Broglie himself had proposed a pilot wave construct to explain the observed wave–particle duality. In this view, each particle has a well-defined position and momentum, but is guided by a wave function derived from Schrödinger's equation. The pilot wave theory was initially rejected because it generated non-local effects when applied to systems involving more than one particle. Non-locality, however, soon became established as an integral feature of quantum theory (see EPR paradox), and David Bohm extended de Broglie's model to explicitly include it. In Bohmian mechanics,[12] the wave–particle duality is not a property of matter itself, but an appearance generated by the particle's motion subject to a guiding equation or quantum potential.

Wave behavior of large objects

Since the demonstrations of wave-like properties in photons and electrons, similar experiments have been conducted with neutrons and protons. Among the most famous experiments are those of Estermann and Otto Stern in 1929.[13] Authors of similar recent experiments with atoms and molecules, described below, claim that these larger particles also act like waves.

A dramatic series of experiments emphasizing the action of gravity in relation to wave–particle duality were conducted in the 1970s using the neutron interferometer[14]. Neutrons, one of the components of the atomic nucleus, provide much of the mass of a nucleus and thus of ordinary matter. In the neutron interferometer, they act as quantum-mechanical waves directly subject to the force of gravity. While the results were not surprising since gravity was known to act on everything, including light (see tests of general relativity and the Pound-Rebka falling photon experiment), the self-interference of the quantum mechanical wave of a massive fermion in a gravitational field had never been experimentally confirmed before.

In 1999, the diffraction of C60 fullerenes by researchers from the University of Vienna was reported.[15] Fullerenes are comparatively large and massive objects, having an atomic mass of about 720 u. The de Broglie wavelength is 2.5 pm, whereas the diameter of the molecule is about 1 nm, about 400 times larger. As of 2005, this is the largest object for which quantum-mechanical wave-like properties have been directly observed in far-field diffraction.

In 2003 the Vienna group also demonstrated the wave nature of tetraphenylporphyrin[16]—a flat biodye with an extension of about 2 nm and a mass of 614 u. For this demonstration they employed a near-field Talbot Lau interferometer.[17][18] In the same interferometer they also found interference fringes for C60F48., a fluorinated buckyball with a mass of about 1600 u, composed of 108 atoms.[16] Large molecules are already so complex that they give experimental access to some aspects of the quantum-classical interface, i.e. to certain decoherence mechanisms.[19][20]

Whether objects heavier than the Planck mass (about the weight of a large bacterium) have a de Broglie wavelength is theoretically unclear and experimentally unreachable; above the Planck mass a particle's Compton wavelength would be smaller than the Planck length and its own Schwarzschild radius, a scale at which current theories of physics may break down or need to be replaced by more general ones.[21]

Treatment in modern quantum mechanics

Wave–particle duality is deeply embedded into the foundations of quantum mechanics, so well that modern practitioners rarely discuss it as such. In the formalism of the theory, all the information about a particle is encoded in its wave function, a complex valued function roughly analogous to the amplitude of a wave at each point in space. This function evolves according to a differential equation (generically called the Schrödinger equation), and this equation gives rise to wave-like phenomena such as interference and diffraction.

The particle-like behavior is most evident due to phenomena associated with measurement in quantum mechanics. Upon measuring the location of the particle, the wave-function will randomly "collapse" to a sharply peaked function at some location, with the likelihood of any particular location equal to the squared amplitude of the wave-function there. The measurement will return a well-defined position, a property traditionally associated with particles.

Although this picture is somewhat simplified (to the non-relativistic case), it is adequate to capture the essence of current thinking on the phenomena historically called "wave–particle duality". (See also: Mathematical formulation of quantum mechanics.)

Alternative views

Particle-only view

The pilot wave model, originally developed by Louis de Broglie and further developed by David Bohm into the hidden variable theory proposes that there is no duality, but rather particles are guided, in a deterministic fashion, by a pilot wave (or "quantum potential") which will direct them to areas of constructive interference in preference to areas of destructive interference. This idea is held by a significant minority within the physics community.[22]

At least one physicist considers the “wave-duality” a misnomer, as L. Ballentine, Quantum Mechanics, A Modern Development, p. 4, explains:

When first discovered, particle diffraction was a source of great puzzlement. Are "particles" really "waves?" In the early experiments, the diffraction patterns were detected holistically by means of a photographic plate, which could not detect individual particles. As a result, the notion grew that particle and wave properties were mutually incompatible, or complementary, in the sense that different measurement apparatuses would be required to observe them. That idea, however, was only an unfortunate generalization from a technological limitation. Today it is possible to detect the arrival of individual electrons, and to see the diffraction pattern emerge as a statistical pattern made up of many small spots (Tonomura et al., 1989). Evidently, quantum particles are indeed particles, but whose behaviour is very different from classical physics would have us to expect.

Wave-only view

At least one scientist proposes that the duality can be replaced by a "wave-only" view. Carver Mead's Collective Electrodynamics: Quantum Foundations of Electromagnetism (2000) analyzes the behavior of electrons and photons purely in terms of electron wave functions, and attributes the apparent particle-like behavior to quantization effects and eigenstates. According to reviewer David Haddon:[23]

Mead has cut the Gordian knot of quantum complementarity. He claims that atoms, with their neutrons, protons, and electrons, are not particles at all but pure waves of matter. Mead cites as the gross evidence of the exclusively wave nature of both light and matter the discovery between 1933 and 1996 of ten examples of pure wave phenomena, including the ubiquitous laser of CD players, the self-propagating electrical currents of superconductors, and the Bose–Einstein condensate of atoms.

Albert Einstein, who, in his search for a Unified Field Theory, did not accept wave-particle duality, wrote:[24].

This double nature of radiation (and of material corpuscles)...has been interpreted by quantum-mechanics in an ingenious and amazingly successful fashion. This interpretation...appears to me as only a temporary way out...

And theoretical physicist Mendel Sachs, who completed Einstein's unified field theory, writes:[25]

Instead, one has a single, holistic continuum, wherein what were formerly called discrete, separable particles of matter are instead the infinite number of distinguishable, though correlated manifestations of this continuum, that in principle is the universe. Hence, wave-particle dualism, which is foundational for the quantum theory, is replaced by wave (continuous field) monism.

The many-worlds interpretation (MWI) is sometimes presented as a waves-only theory, including by its originator, Hugh Everett who referred to MWI as "the wave interpretation"[26].

'Three Wave Hypothesis' of R. Horodecki relates the particle to wave [27]. [28]. The hypothesis implies that a massive particle is an intrinsically spatially as well as temporary extended wave phenomenon by a nonlinear law. According to M. I. Sanduk this hypothesis is related to a hypothetical bevel gear model [29]. Then both concepts of particle and wave may be attributed to an observation problem of the gear [30].

Relational approach to wave–particle duality

Relational quantum mechanics is developed which regards the detection event as establishing a relationship between the quantized field and the detector. The inherent ambiguity associated with applying Heisenberg's uncertainty principle and thus wave–particle duality is subsequently avoided [1]. See Zheng et al. (1992, 1996)[31].

Applications

Although it is difficult to draw a line separating wave–particle duality from the rest of quantum mechanics, it is nevertheless possible to list some applications of this basic idea.

  • Wave–particle duality is exploited in electron microscopy, where the small wavelengths associated with the electron can be used to view objects much smaller than what is visible using visible light.
  • Similarly, neutron diffraction uses neutrons with a wavelength of about one ångström, the typical spacing of atoms in a solid, to determine the structure of solids.

          The first trailer for Marvel's 'Black Panther' movie is finally here   

black panther

Black Panther is coming to theaters next year and the first teaser trailer for the movie is finally here.

Disney premiered the first trailer for the movie during game four of the NBA finals. First introduced in "Captain America: Civil War," "Black Panther" will follow T'Challa (Chadwick Boseman) after the death of his father, the King of Wakanda, in the 2016 movie. He'll take his place as king, but he'll be challenged when he's confronted by an old foe. 

Here's the full synopsis from Disney:

T’Challa who, after the death of his father, the King of Wakanda, returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation to succeed to the throne and take his rightful place as king. But when a powerful old enemy reappears, T’Challa’s mettle as king—and Black Panther—is tested when he is drawn into a formidable conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk. Faced with treachery and danger, the young king must rally his allies and release the full power of Black Panther to defeat his foes and secure the safety of his people and their way of life.

"Black Panther" is packed with a star-studded cast including Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker, and Andy Serkis.  

Ryan Coogler ("Creed," "Fruitvale Station") is directing the movie which will hit theaters February 16, 2018.  

Check out the trailer below:    

The poster for the movie was released Friday morning showing T'Challa take his place on the throne.

ken klein tintri ceo

Storage startup Tintri scuttled its plans for an IPO Wednesday night, less than 24 hours before it was slated to debut on the NASDAQ exchange.

While confirming to Business Insider that Tintri won't IPO on Thursday, a company spokesperson declined to explain why or to give any further update on its plans to go public. 

Companies rarely back out of a planned IPO the night before it's scheduled to occur.

Tintri was seeking to raise $109 million in an IPO priced between $10.50 to $12.50 a share. The company's most recent IPO filing document showed that it  is experiencing mounting losses amid slowing revenue growth. 

The Silicon Valley company has raised $260 million in venture capital financing from investors including New Enterprise Associates and Menlo Ventures.

          "The Weapons Shop" in 'Featured Stories', SpecFicWorld.com   
http://specficworld.com/fiction/DVSHORT.aspx?Id=41

In my own reading, Spider Robinson was the first SF writer to point out the particle-beam weapons system that Nikola Tesla tried to sell to both FDR and British Prime Minister Prime Minister Stanley Baldwin. One huge Spider fan I know is CBS radio's own Big Jim.

Jim advanced the idea you are about to see. I find it truly horrifying in a way... but in a way, I kind of wish it would happen.

I wrote a lot of cynical things during the Bush Administration. I was sure it was Game Over. Game On passes strange, many times, but the winds have begun to blow hard out here. Hopefully, I too can get a job picking up the downed branches from the storm of the previous regime. Or at least mucking biofuel someplace.

In any case, "The Weapons Shop" was inspired by a great painting by Kenn Brown (http://www.mondolithicstudios.com .) Kenn told me he titled the painting, in turn, from A.E. van Vogt's SF chestnut 'The Weapons Shops of Ishtar."

Completely off-topic, but I finally get to nod three hands away at that old Dutch master, whose story "The Enchanted Village" was the best damn piece of SF I was ever exposed to in elementary school, period, with the exception of "Night of the Cooters"...

Anyway, enjoy. More on the way. ---ed/

Nuances

There are a few things that took me a while to figure out that might be helpful to others.

  • I used VS2010 Pro. I heard you can use the express editions if you install both the C# and C++ versions. It seems Microsoft is making harder to find the VS2010 though.
  • You cannot use VS2012 yet, and probably never be able to use the express edition of VS2012 since I doubt express will support desktop applications.
  • It really is not that hard to add CL.EXE to your path. Just type “environment” into the Windows 7 start box that states “search programs and files” and pick the “Edits system and environment variables”.
  • If your video card is older, try this:
    CudafyTranslator.Cudafy(eArchitecture.sm_11);
  • If the GPGPU call takes more than a few seconds then the video driver resets. I think you can tweak the timeout somewhere.
  • Things go a bit wonky if you call functions in your Cudafied code that return void.
  • It is a bit faster to call the version of launch that takes the function to call as a string.
  • I think calling CopyFromDevice forces a call to Synchronize first.
  • You cannot allocate arrays in Cudafied code, so get used to calling AllocateShared for all threads.
  • Recursion is not supported in Cudafied code.

Can We Go Faster? Oh Yeah!

          Here's why Elon Musk is waxing philosophical about floors (TSLA)   

Elon MuskKimberly White/Getty Images for Vanity Fair

Elon Musk, hours after his new company started drilling a tunnel under Los Angeles, began to wax philosophical about floors.

"I love floors. They will never let you down," the Tesla and SpaceX CEO quipped in consecutive postings Wednesday evening. The tweets followed news that Musk's new venture, The Boring Company, officially began drilling a tunnel under Los Angeles.

Musk launched his tunnel company in April. His ultimate goal is to relieve congestion by building as many as 30 layers of tunnels beneath Interstate 105 in LA. Musk has said that the tunnels will transport cars on an electric skate and could even accommodate a Hyperloop, Business Insider's Danielle Muoio previously reported.

Musk's musings on social media were characteristically cheeky for the environmentalist, who seamlessly transitioned from lauding floors to go a little deeper on the subject:

"They are so underappreciated," he said. "Not as much as tunnels though. Just try one. It's way better than you think."

          A storage startup called off its $109 million IPO the night before it was scheduled to debut   

ken klein tintri ceoTintri

Hours before its Wall Street debut, storage startup Tintri threw investors for a loop on Wednesday night with a surprise "change" of plans that left the status of its planned initial public offering in question. 

The company did not provide an explanation for the highly unusual move. 

While confirming to Business Insider that Tintri won't begin trading on the NASDAQ exchange on Thursday, a company spokesperson declined to explain why or to give any further update on its plans to go public. 

While companies sometimes delay or shelve plans for an IPO, backing out of an offering on the eve of the listing is very rare.

The sudden Tintri news called to mind the scrapped IPO of AppDynamics in January, after networking giant Cisco swooped in and acquired the company for $3.7 billion at the eleventh hour. In the case of Tintri however, there were no immediate reports of an acquisition.

Tintri was seeking to raise $109 million in an IPO priced between $10.50 to $12.50 a share. The company's most recent IPO filing document showed that it  is experiencing mounting losses amid slowing revenue growth. 

The Silicon Valley company has raised $260 million in venture capital financing from investors including New Enterprise Associates and Menlo Ventures.

          This $2.9 billion company's stock skyrocketed after signing a key deal with Google (NTNX, GOOGL)   

Sudheesh Nair, president of Nutanix, has had a very profitable day.Nutanix

Nutanix's stock got a big boost Wednesday after the upstart cloud software provider announced a new partnership with Google. 

The company will work with Google to give joint customers a unified public cloud service that combines the Nutanix environment with the Google Cloud Platform, Nutanix announced.

Investors cheered the news. Nutanix's stock jumped up 9.23% during regular trading, closing at $20.36. It went up another 1.18% to $20.60 in after-hours exchanges. 

The deal between Google and Nutanix will ultimately give enterprises the ability to manage applications running both on Google's cloud and on their own servers, so they appear to be running in just one place. That could allow enterprises to tap into Google's processing power while keeping their data on their own servers. Before, Nutanix provided a cloud-like experience to enterprises that relied on their own private, on-premise servers. 

“Hybrid Cloud needs be a two-way street,” said Sudheesh Nair, president of Nutanix, in a statement. “The strategic alliance with Google demonstrates our commitment to simplify operations for our customers with a single enterprise cloud OS across both private and public clouds—with ubiquity, extensibility and intuitive design.”

          Elon Musk has officially started digging a tunnel under Los Angeles (TSLA)   

boring company photoScreenshot

Elon Musk's latest company is officially up and running.

The Tesla and SpaceX CEO said on Twitter Wednesday evening that his tunnel boring machine, dubbed Godot, has officially begun digging under Los Angeles.

Musk officially launched his tunnel company, aptly named The Boring Company, in April.

"No longer waiting for Godot. It has begun boring and just completed the first segment of tunnel in LA," Musk said.

Musk said in a Bloomberg profile that the company would begin digging in the SpaceX parking lot. The Boring Company, however, will need to secure permits to dig beyond the SpaceX property line.

Musk's ultimate goal is to relieve congestion by building as many as 30 layers of tunnels beneath Interstate 105 in LA. Musk has said that the tunnels will transport cars on an electric skate and could even accommodate a Hyperloop.

Musk said last Monday that he has had "promising conversations" with Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti about the project.

Los Angeles is contemplating the addition of an express train that would travel between Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and Union Station, a main transit hub that connects LA to distant suburbs east and west of the city. Garcetti said he is considering using Musk's tunnel to support the rail connection.

The SpaceX parking lot is roughly a five-minute drive from LAX, but securing the necessary permits to dig under the freeway will likely take time.

Still, Musk is clearly dead serious about making his tunnel network a reality. But he says it will take some more time before Godot can beat his pet snail, Gary.

          Uber is under investigation in Australia

Ridesharing provider Uber is the subject of an investigation by Australia’s ombudsman for workplace relations.

The Fair Work Ombudsman confirmed to Business Insider on Wednesday evening that it has started an inquiry into whether the company’s conditions for drivers comply with federal regulations.

“I can confirm that the Fair Work Ombudsman has commenced an investigation into Uber, with the purpose of determining whether the engagement of Uber drivers is compliant with Commonwealth workplace laws,” an ombudsman spokesperson said.

“As this is a live investigation it would not be appropriate for us to comment any further.”

Uber had long been classifying drivers as contractors rather than employees, explicitly calling them “partner-drivers” to emphasize the point. But a group of activist drivers called Rideshare Drivers United has claimed responsibility for the FWO investigation, saying the current conditions equate to a “a classic ‘sham contracting’ arrangement”.

“To be classified as real subcontractors, drivers must have more control and ability to grow their business, directly negotiate service prices with customers, ask for the destination before having to drive to the pick up location, be permitted to hail street rides, issue invoices and most importantly be able to scrutinize the Uber booking system and its various performance and earning metrics,” the group stated on its website this month.

“Uber currently does it all ‘on behalf of drivers’ while drivers have absolutely no say over any of these important business decisions & functions.”

UberBernard Weil/GettyImagesAn Uber Australia said that more than 60,000 people chose to drive on its platform because “they like setting their own schedule and being their own boss”.

“We will be happy to assist the Fair Work Ombudsman with any questions they may have.”

Rideshare Drivers United claimed it took its concerns to the FWO earlier this month, submitting accounts of driver experiences and demanding that all rideshare drivers be classified and paid as casual workers. Now that the investigation has started, it is actively calling on Uber drivers to make submissions to the ombudsman.

In an attempt to calm driver concerns, Uber Australia earlier this month lifted its minimum fares across all mainland state capitals. The company also added a 55c booking fee at the same time, but none of that went to the drivers.

Rideshare Drivers United said at the time that the minimum fare rides were such a small percentage of total trips that the change was “a slap in the face” for drivers.

The group instead called for a hike in the distance-based rates. Those tariffs had been cut twice in the past two years and now were at “very low, unsustainable levels” that left drivers with “well below minimum take home wage”, according to Rideshare Drivers United.

Failure to adapt

Uber globally has been on a hiding to nothing in recent weeks, with its corporate culture coming under scrutiny, a board member resigning after making sexist comments at an anti-sexism staff meeting, and its founder and chief Travis Kalanick resigning after an investor revolt.

Tony Wu, head of growth at recruitment platform startup Weploy, said that the industrial dispute in Australia had arisen because the “gig economy” has evolved from people earning “quick cash on the side” to actually making their primary income.

“Many Australians [now] rely on this type of work as their livelihoods, and as such, we need to treat these jobs as legitimate forms of employment,” he said.

“We feel there is a lack of responsibility within the gig economy and workers are left to fend for themselves as contractors.”

While Uber had left a great legacy of bringing the gig economy into the mainstream, Wu said, its industrial relations needed to adapt.

“If they fail to take responsibility for this, it will only continue to add to their growing list of issues. In the gig economy, the success of your business is proportional to the happiness of your community,” he said.

“However, Uber can’t be solely blamed for the issue — policy makers have been slow to the mark and have failed to adapt legislation to protect workers within these economies.”

The bank stocks passed a big milestone Wednesday.

The results of the qualitative Fed's stress test were released after the market close on Wednesday, and all of the banks passed. This was the first time all major US banks passed the test, according to the Wall Street Journal

Passing the tests means the banks will be able to share their wealth with stockholders.

After passing the tests, many of the banks announced buybacks and dividend increases.

Most of the bank stocks are on the move after passing the test. Here is a round-up of some of the most notable names.

Capital One's shares are falling after the results. The credit card company only "conditionally" passed the stress tests and will have to resubmit its plan.

The results released Wednesday are the qualitative portion of the Fed's stress tests, the harder portion of the tests according to some investors. The banks previously passed the quantitative portions earlier in the month.

          Salesforce's newest 'Einstein' AI tools can tell when people are mad in texts and emails (CRM, TWTR)   

Salesforce EinsteinWatch out, human. The robots can detect your fear. And anger. And any other sentiment that you might share with a corporation while on social media.

At the TrailheaDX developer conference in San Francisco Wednesday, Salesforce announced three new tools that will make it easier for developers to incorporate artificial intelligence into custom apps.

It's great news for companies looking to increase the efficiency of their customer service and inventory management. It's terrible news for anyone whose job is to, well, provide customer service or take inventory. 

The new tools are the latest iteration of Salesforce's Einstein, the AI technology that runs on Salesforce and customizes analytics and insights to each customer. Now, programmers can use Einstein Platform Services to easily train this AI to meet their own ends. 

Among the new features is Einstein Sentiment, which can sort the tone of any given text as positive, negative or neutral. Developers can use this to create an application that can highlight angry tweets and emails. They could also use it to prioritize compliments and glowing reviews, if positive reinforcement is more of their thing. 

Another tool, Einstein Intent, gives developers the ability to sort customer inquiries by intent and then send relevant responses or personalized marketing. Salesforce imagines this tool being used by a retail company to build an app that identifies customers experiencing shipping problems, and then responds accordingly. 

The third new tool announced Wednesday, Einstein Object Detection lets developers train models to recognize multiple unique objects within a single image. It can also detect the location, size and quantities of objects. It's ideal for building apps to take inventory of products, like the number of boxes on a shelf.

This morning Elon Musk took a page from Reed Hasting’s book (see piece on Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX) from Wednesday here).   See Musk comments from this morning here.   Perhaps Elon is as good a technician as he is a brilliant innovator and businessman.   The Daily Market Report from this morning has a daily Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) chart which shows that the stock turned its 3-Day Chart down on Wednesday for the first time since its vertical phase began.   Yesterday Tesla traded above Wednesday’s high turning the dailies back up so that a second higher daily high today will put Tesla in its first ...
          Tesla's Technical Mechanics   
Every bull run has its iconic story stock. Since the second quarter Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) has been the epicenter of sentiment.   Yesterday Tesla broke sharply to its 20-day moving average which has been staunch support during its persistent advance. The test of the 20 DMA saw Tesla bounce back before the bell but Tesla is gapping down again this morning testing yesterday’s lows.   In so doing Tesla has carved out a large range outside down week and is flirting with a possible Key Reversal week on a close this Friday below 177.11.   Weekly TSLA Chart for 2013:   Checking ...

          Comment on I’m just trying to think about the future and not be sad: Elon Musk om fremtid og teknologi by Eirik   
Gaute: Ja, jeg syns dette faktisk er ordentlig innsiktsfullt. Altfor ofte i mitt virke som fremtidstenker møter jeg folk som sier (om f.eks. det grønne skiftet) at "markedet vil ta seg av det" eller "før eller siden finner vi en løsning". Det Musk bare delvis er inne på i forlengelsen av dette, er viktigheten av en sterk offentlig satsing på ny teknologi. Uten NASA-midler og føderale miljølån ville verken SpaceX eller Tesla vært en realitet idag. Uten en stat som er villig til å betale for grunnforskning og vente leeenge på resultater ville vi i det hele tatt ikke sett mye til dagens teknologirevolusjon.

The name Campagnolo sits at the heart of European cycling culture. It’s a brand woven into the very DNA of that culture.

          Treasures of the Archives: Horseless Carriage, 1901-1904   

George W. Fox in front of Fox House, Photographs, Spokane City Historic Preservation Office, Washington State Archives, Digital Archives.

George W. Fox in front of Fox House, Photographs, Spokane City Historic Preservation Office, Washington State Archives, Digital Archives, http://www.digitalarchives.wa.gov.

The first automobiles were often called “horseless carriages,” and you can see why in this Spokane photograph from about 1903. In those days owners could choose steam, gasoline, or electricity to power their newfangled vehicles. There was little infrastructure to provide gasoline, and steam engines were slow to warm up, so many people with access to electricity chose electric cars. The availability of electric cars was due to Nikola Tesla and Thomas Edison’s work with alternating and direct current electricity, and Gaston Plante’s work on rechargeable batteries. By 1911 almost 30% of all the cars on the road were electric.

          Nine Alignment   

The new year has been rung in for weeks already but maybe today feels a little more special due to a planetary alignment that hasn't been seen for 10 years. So despite being a bit late, it still seems like a particularly auspicious day to drop the checkered flag on 2016.

I labelled 2015 Year 8 due to being able to reduce it to 8 using numerology (2+0+1+5=8) which means 2016 is a 9 year. A number famous as a cutoff for cats, and an excellent but under appreciated film (IMO of course). I was partial to 8, it being my favourite number, but nine also has some mystery to it. Especially as part of Nikola Tesla's famous quote:

"If you only knew the magnificence of 3, 6, and 9, then you would have a key to the universe."

 It doesn't take much research to show there really is obviously some interesting mathematical behaviour going on with those three digits.


Today (20/1/2016 Australian Eastern Standard Time) also happens to reduce to the number 3, a multiple of 9. The Canadian philosopher of communication and media, Marshall McLuhan was quite partial to 3, likely because of his Catholic faith, the flavour of Christianity that most embraces the Trinity.


Don't get me wrong, I'm not here to hold an advanced math class or start down the path of discussing the significance of elaborate geometry and repeating codes in nature. You can do that on your own time. Let's get to the best part of the new year - Charlie Brooker reviewing the old one.




          Gramatik's rebirth of soul: The Age of Reason [Out NOW on Lowtemp]   
If you know Gramatik and have a little background info about the Slovenian super-producer, then you know famed Serbian Nikola Tesla is his biggest inspiration. Denis Jasarevic just released his latest album, The Age of Reason, which generates nothing less than an electrical surge of good vibrations to the soul through its and frequencies quality production and beat-scuplting. This album is one big super funky sexy filled Tesla Coil spiraling around the blending circuits of funkified guitars stabs, intricately thumping hip-hop drums, and orgasmic 80’s style synths. It journeys through electro soul-fields of fresh vinyl samples, and jolting the ears with some high-voltage bass modulations that would make even the oldest paraplegic jump up and boogie down like it was Studio 54. If there is anything cooler than "ice cold," it has to be Gramtik and his Lowtemp label’s new release.

          Ponsel pertama di dunia, Gede Banget   




Inilah ponsel yg ukurannya sebesar tutup tempat sampah tetapi ponsel ini cuma memiliki jangkauan setengah mil.

Dilihat dari segi design dan ukuran, ponsel pertama di dunia ini amad jauuuuhhhh berbeda sama ponsel masa kini, yg cukup kecil untuk menyelinap di saku dan dapat menghubungi hampir kemana saja di dunia ini. Tapi dari sini lah telepon nirkabel bermula.


Sang pencipta sendiri, Nathan Stubblefield akhirnya diakui sebagai bapak teknologi telepon seluler tepat 100 tahun setelah ia mempatenkan desain tersebut untuk sebuah "telepon nirkabel"

Nathan Stubbefield sebenarnya hanyalah petani melon biasa yg sangat menyukai IPTEK bahkan dia telah menemukan radio sebelum Nikola Tesla atau Guglielmo Marcon tetapi radio yg dia temukan menggunakan frekuensi audio induksi, dikarenakan radio induksi menyebabkan gangguan pada wilayah sekitarnya sehingga kalah populer dengan radio transmisi yg di temukan oleh Nikola Tesla atau Guglielmo Marcon.

Pada tahun 1902 petani melon ini datang dengan penemuannya, setelah mengorbankan setiam jam menit dan detik demi untuk membuat jaringan telekomunikasi di kampung halamannya Murray, Kentucky.


Note: Nathan Stubbefield menunjukan penemuannya (dapat dilihat tiang di tengah gambar)

Dia membangung 120 kaki tiang di kebun, yg dapat mentransfer percakapan dari satu telepon ke telepon yg lain dengan menggunakan medan magnet.

Dia mendemonstrasikan temuannya di alun-alun kota pada hari Tahun Baru 1902.

Pada tahun 1908 dia mematenkan telepon nirkabel versi baru untuk berkomunikasi dengan kendaraan bergerak.

Sayangnya telepon nirkabel tidak sukses dalam masa hidupnya,dia meninggal dengan keadaan miskin pada tahun 1928.

Tapi sekarang dia telah diakui sebagai "Father of The Modern Mobile Phone" ,bahkan Virgin Mobile membuat page khusus untuk menandai ulang tahun temuan Nathan Stubbefield di website resmi nya.

          Aplikasi Twitter di Android Kini Punya Modus Malam Otomatis   

Modus malam atau night mode dalam sebuah aplikasi bukanlah hal yang baru. Bagi pengguna Twitter, fitur ini sudah dirilis tahun lalu. Kali ini, Twitter dilaporkan sedang menguji coba sebuah fitur modus malam otomatis.

Dengan fitur ini, pengguna bisa mengatur waktu atau kapan aplikasi Twitter di ponselnya akan memasuki modus malam.

Seperti dikutip dari Ubergizmo, Kamis (29/6/2017), saat ini fitur modus malam otomatis sudah hadir di aplikasi Twitter pada smartphone Android. Melalui sebuah pembaruan, pengguna Twitter yang sudah memperbarui aplikasinya ke versi terbaru, yakni versi 7.2 bisa merasakan fitur modus malam ini.

Sekadar informasi, fitur modus malam otomatis memungkinkan pengguna untuk memilih dan mengatur waktu, kapan aplikasi akan masuk ke modus malam atau modus default.

Misalnya saja, pengguna mengatur waktu modus malam otomatis aktif saat matahari tenggelam dan kembali ke modus default saat fajar.

Twitter menyadari bahwa hadirnya fitur modus malam ini bukanlah hal baru, tetapi jadi salah satu fitur yang akan meningkatkan pengalaman bagi pengguna Twitter.

Saat ini memang fitur modus malam otomatis baru tersedia di Android, tetapi sepertinya Twitter akan segera menghadirkannya untuk pengguna iOS. Untuk menggunakannya, pengguna harus terlebih dahulu memperbarui aplikasinya ke versi terbaru di Google Play Store.

          Lawmakers debate stripping state-level protections on self-driving cars   
Lawmakers sitting on a U.S. House subcommittee this week debated 14 separate proposals designed to strip out state-level decisions around self-driving cars. Uber, Waymo, Tesla and others have lobbied on behalf of the proposals, saying they eliminate a patchwork quilt of state restrictions on the technology. The proposed bills would give the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration the power to regulate autonomous driving, and set nationwide standards for carmakers. That would be in-line…

          New GTK+3 Stack and MATE Development Changes   
This morning, Patrick has just pushed changes to GTK+3 stack into -current, thanks to Robby Workman. Slackware-Current now ships GTK+3-3.22.10, the latest GTK+3 version available at this moment and also the last 3.x release. There won't be any 3.x release, just bumping on minor releases due to bug fixing.

Along with the GTK updates, there are also other updates such as:
  • btrfs-progs: Upgraded to 4.10.2
  • grub: Upgraded to 2.02
  • lvm2: Upgraded to 2.02.17
  • xfsprogs: Upgraded to 4.10.0
  • tmux: Upgraded to 2.4
  • swig: Upgraded to 3.0.12
  • freetype: Upgraded to 2.7.1
  • harfbuzz: Upgraded to 1.4.6
  • pygobject3: Upgraded to 3.24.1
  • shared-mime-info: Upgraded to 1.7
  • sip: Upgraded to 4.19.2
  • vte: Upgraded to 0.44.3
  • bluez: Upgraded to 5.44
  • iproute2: Upgraded to 4.10.0
  • gparted: Upgraded to 0.28.1
  • many xfce-related updates.
With this update, MATE development will have to change as well. Previously, master and 14.2-mate-1.18 branch is equal since they all use the same GTK+3 version and i can use the same branch to build MATE. Now that current is diverting more and more from 14.2, probably it's time to make separation between these two branches. Stable should work with Slackware 14.2 as usual, while master will be used to track MATE development using -current. I have made the first commit in master not being applied to 14.2-mate-1.18 and that is mate-themes which is now upgraded to 3.22.10 following GTK+3 changes in current and also vte3 removal

I will probably have to rebuilt MATE packages and remove vte3 as the one in -current has been bumped to 0.44.3. Let me see if i can push an update this weekend as my schedule is quite busy these days.
          MATE 1.18 Released   
Turns out just 24 hours after i posted about MATE 1.18 preparations, upstream developers have finally announced the final version of MATE 1.18. This release has reached an interesting milestone, which is to migrate all MATE components to GTK+3, leaving GTK+2 code base which is no longer updated and have many limitations. Along with this transition, many deprecated components are also being migrated to the new technologies.

Upstream developers have generously supported GTK+3-3.14.x, which is still used by RHEL and Slackware 14.2 as their minimum supported version of GTK+3. They do support all newer GTK+3, up to GTK+3-3.22.x. Since GTK+4 is still far away and it will be co-installable with previous GTK+3, upstream developers will have more time to fix many things with GTK+3 before starts struggling with new GTK+4 in the future.

MATE 1.18 have also started to provide support for libinput for mouse and touchpad. Since -current has included libinput, it will have better support on handling inputs in the next release. It has also replaced deprecated upower suspend/hibernate functions with ConsoleKit2 equivalents that is supported in Slackware and Gentoo. There are also reworked font-viewer in mate-control-center, lots of new filetype support in engrampa, and porting of Pluma and eom plugins to libpeas.

The biggest change goes to caja, the file manager. It is ported from libunique to GtkApplication, added copy queue and pausing feature, delete confirmation, directory navigation buttons, better notification with removeable drives, and many more.


Please note that there are still some theme-related and mate-panel glitches with GTK+3 and it's a known issues for some time. The developers are working on it day by day.

All the SlackBuilds source code has been pushed to github and gitlab. Website has been updated with MATE 1.18 screenshots, and binary packages have been uploaded to Slackware.uk for both Stable and Current (x86_64 only) release. It will be included in the next Slackware Live ISO by AlienBOB as well.

Enjoy MATE 1.18!!!
          MATE 1.17 Packages Rebuilt   
Since last Current update, most MATE users will realize that they can't view PDF files on Atril anymore. The reason is simple: poppler update broke it. Atril needs to be recompiled against new poppler and it should be fixed. But that comes another problem: i haven't publish the SlackBuild for 1.17, only binary packages for testing.

I decided to rebuilt all MATE packages for current this morning. I simply remove all MATE packages on my VM and pull the latest changes from my (was) private branch and build the latest one. All sources are now use 1.17 version number, EXCEPT for one: mate-icon-theme-faenza. It's still under investigation from upstream since it failed during make dist-check. Upstream have decided to bring back mate-calc since it's ported to GTK3 now so i simply removed Galculator from my MSB repository.

All the binary packages for MATE 1.17 are now uploaded to slackware.uk and i have pushed my branch called 1.17-prep in github. You can use that branch to build MATE 1.17 from source. This is a temporary branch and changes for 1.17 will be force-pushed. Once mate-icon-theme-faenza reached 1.17.0, i will merge this branch to master branch and it will diverge from the stable branch: 14.2-mate-1.16.

Also, i'm planning to include a new package called caja-actions. This package was requested by one of MSB user and he created the initial SlackBuild for me. I reviewed it and decided to adopt it as part of my MSB scripts. It will get added once 1.17 is complete.

For those who have been using mate 1.17 from my binary packages, please make sure to use upgradepkg --reinstall --install-new to reinstall all binary packages which was built against latest current update per Jan 14.

          來真的?! 頻果Apple註冊相關網域名稱|InCar癮車報   


近日美國科技龍頭大廠蘋果公司Apple註冊了與汽車相關的網域名,包括:apple. car、apple. cars和apple.auto,但目前還沒有任何網頁的架設。根據蘋果謠言相關網站MacRumors網站指出,這可能與Apple傳聞已久的電動車計畫有關。

 

蘋果電動車計畫據說以"泰坦"(Titan)為該計畫代號,蘋果已經招攬相關技術人才,研發團隊人數可能至上百人以上,並可能在西元2019就會公布於世。傳聞美國新創電動摩托車公司的倒閉就是因為Apple挖走幾位關鍵工程師,Tesla執行長Elon Musk甚至還戲稱蘋果是"Tesla的墓地",因為講了一句:"如果你不能留在Tesla工作,你就去Apple上班吧"之詞。不過註冊這些網域名也可能只是為了CarPlay。這項功能可讓一些特定的車款本身配備的螢幕上,接上iPhone後,接手想用IOS系統做的事,像是取得路線、撥打電話、收發訊息和聆聽音樂等功能。
