Could a Habitable Planet Orbit a Black Hole?

sciencehabit shares a report from Science Magazine: Supermassive black holes have a reputation for consuming everything in their path, from gas clouds to entire solar systems. So is there any way aliens could live on a world that actually orbited one of these cosmic beasts? Surprisingly, the answer is a tentative yes, researchers say, although there are plenty of reasons why life could never take hold in such a place. If it did, living on such a planet would be truly surreal, with the black hole...

Use Ring's New Control Center to Block Police Requests

It feels like plenty of people aren’t going to ditch their expensive video-camera doorbells no matter what Ring does—either because they paid good money for one and they’re stubborn, or they don’t want to spend even more time messing with screwdrivers and wires to install something else.Read more...

YouTube claims to share billions in ad money with creators, unlike Instagram

Google this week revealed details about YouTube‘s ad revenue for the first time since it purchased the company, and the numbers are kind of staggering. The site earned just over $15 billion in ad revenue last year — and it’d be quick to tell you just how much of that goes back to its creators. It doesn’t sound like much — at least until you compare the site to social media rival Instagram. You can read the breakdown of Google’s financial results here. In addition to the $15.1 billion it earned f...

Review: Warm Touch warming lube dispenser

The problem of the lube bottle is one that manufacturers have been grappling with for some time. Awkward flip-top caps with drippy squeeze tubes, clog-prone pumps, literal tubs that you scoop lubricant out of with your bare hands... these are all imperfect, sometimes messy ways of transporting lubricant from container to genital region. Really, lube bottles themselves are so last decade. In this new era, you need not suffer through even holding your lube bottle, much less struggling with its...

Twitter Will Ban Deepfakes and Other Manipulated Media That Could Cause 'Serious Harm'

On Tuesday, Twitter announced changes to its synthetic and manipulated media policy, which it defines as any photo, audio, or video that's been "significantly altered or fabricated" to mislead people or change the original meaning of the content.

Watch: AI developer upscales famous 1895 train scene to 4K at 60 FPS

A developer and YouTuber named Denis Shiryaev recently used “several neural networks” to update a famous French short film from 1895 to make it appear as though it were shot on a modern phone. Called “L’arrivée d’un train en gare de La Ciotat,” the 50-second French short documentary shows a train arriving at Ciotat train station. The film is famous for allegedly causing theater goers at the time to panic out of fear the train would burst through the screen and crash into them. While this tale is...

Google Translate gets Dark Mode support on iPhone and iPad

G oogle has finally added support for dark mode in the latest 6.5.0 version of Translate for iOS. This is quite surprising considering the fact that mainstream Google apps like Gmail and Maps still lack dark mode on iOS. Most other apps by Google including Photos, Drive, Docs, Calendar and Assistant also lack dark theme support on iPhone and iPad. Google Chrome, on the other hand, is apparently the only app to comply with the system-wide dark mode in iOS 13. Google Translate Update – Support ...

Google Cloud is spending big to hire the right salespeople and developers, but analysts say the bet could pay off by making it more competitive with Amazon and Microsoft (GOOG, GOOGL)

On Monday, Google Cloud reported that it generated $2.6 billion in revenue this past quarter, and $8.9 billion across all of 2019. Analysts estimate that Google Cloud is on its way to closing the gap with its rivals Amazon Web Services and Microsoft, and one even guesses that the unit's revenue will surpass $19 billion in 2021. Google Cloud is spending big as it hustles to close that gap: Sundar Pichai, CEO of Google parent company Alphabet, said that the company is hiring senior staff and gro...

"If Apple has kicked you out of any of its App Stores, used its developer guidelines to control your innovation, hijacked your store ranking, or (let's be honest with each other) lied to you while it steals your technology, it's time to talk," Dan Volach wrote in an open letter posted Tuesday.  Blix, the Volach brothers' compan...
