Israel Aims To Ban Gasoline, Diesel Vehicles By 2030

An anonymous reader quotes a report from CleanTechnica: 2030 seems like a long way off, but it's really just around the corner. And when the bell tolls at midnight on December 31, 2030, you may not be able to buy a gasoline- or diesel-powered vehicle in Israel. After that date, all passenger cars will be electric and all trucks will be powered by electricity or compressed natural gas, if a proposal currently under consideration gets approved by the government. A final decision is expected by the...

Why Great Products Do Only One Thing

Uber did not allow you to pre-book a taxi. Amazon started out by selling books only. Google was just a search engine. McDonald’s got rid of cutlery. And somehow we still believe that for a product to be successful it must do many things. Back in 2006, McDonald’s saw its growth stall. The fast-food chain decided that the problem was its limited menu, so it tried out many new items and ended up doubling the offerings. But sales hardly budged. Finally, in 2016, it took a new track. It went back to...

Big Q. Tch, what could have persuaded Intel to bring forward 5G chip production six months?

Clue's in the headline. And more importantly: Will anyone but Cupertino care? It looks as though Apple's iThings may get 5G connectivity in 2020 – after Intel promised production of its 5G modem will start in the second half of 2019, and ship in the first half of the following year.…

YouTube VR finally lands on the Oculus Go

Today, Google’s YouTube VR app arrives on , bringing the largest library of VR content on the web to Facebook’s entry-level VR device. YouTube brings plenty of content in conventional and more immersive video types. It’s undoubtedly the biggest single hub of 360 content and native formats like VR180, though offering access to the library at large is probably far more important to the Oculus platform. One of the interesting things about Oculus’s strategy with the Go headset is that gaming tur...

Apple was already under pressure after posting disappointing earning...

The company will announce shortly that users will be able to edit their profile in order to choose a different option for their gender identity, instead of just “Man” or “Woman,” as well as toggle a setting that will display their gender on their profile in Tinder’s app. These same options have been live in the U.S. since November 2016, when the dating app added options for transgender and gender non-conforming people.

Analysts weighing in on $8B SAP-Qualtrics deal don’t see a game changer

SAP CEO Bill McDermott was jacked up today about his company’s $8 billion Qualtrics acquisition over the weekend. You would expect no less for such a big deal. McDermott believes the data Qualtrics provides could bridge the gap between his company’s operational data and customer, data wherever that resides. The idea behind Qualtrics is to understand customer sentiment as it happens. McDermott sees this as a key piece to the company’s customer management puzzle, one that could propel it into b...

How Stan Lee changed pop culture, comic books and movies forever

Comic books have always loved alternate histories, so consider a world in which Stan Lee never existed: One where he never created a single comic or character, never inspired a movie or a TV show, never signed an autograph for a fan dressed as Spider-Man at a comic convention. It’s a weird place, isn’t it? Not as strange as the time Marvel did a series by Neil Gaiman in which Captain America and his super friends lived in the Elizabethan Court of 1602, but definitely weirder than that time Spide...
