Huawei’s ‘replacement’ for Android will launch June 2, but does it stand a chance?

Trump’s ban on Huawei was arguably the biggest single blow to the smartphone ecosystem in recent years, crippling the company’s prospects in western markets where access to Google services is essential for Android users. Since then, Huawei has been focusing on building its own mobile OS, and we now know it is set to arrive soon: Huawei announced that HarmonyOS — known as Hongmeng in China — will launch on June 2. HarmonyOS has technically been around as an OS for the internet-of-things for a whi...

Germany gives greenlight to driverless vehicles on public roads

Germany has adopted legislation that will allow driverless vehicles on public roads by 2022, laying out a path for companies to deploy robotaxis and delivery services in the country at scale. While autonomous testing is currently permitted in Germany, this would allow operations of driverless vehicles without a human safety operator behind the wheel.  The bill, which last week passed the Bundestag, Germany’s lower house of parliament, specifically looks at vehicles with Level 4 autonomy.

How Samsung 'Ruined' iFixit's Upcycling Program

Last week, Kevin Purdy of iFixit published a blog post telling the story of "how Samsung announced a 'revolutionary' upcycling program in 2017, delayed it for years, and eventually gutted it before shipping a pale imitation of the original idea," reports Ars Technica. "iFixit was actually involved in the initial 2017 announcement, and the repair outfit says that after endorsing the original idea with its brand and stamp of approval, Samsung never delivered on its promises." From the report: Desp...

Florida’s ban on bans will test First Amendment rights of social media companies

Florida governor Ron DeSantis has signed into law a restriction on social media companies’ ability to ban candidates for state offices and news outlets, and in doing so offered a direct challenge to those companies’ perceived free speech rights. The law is almost certain to be challenged in court as both unconstitutional and in direct conflict with federal rules. The law, Florida Senate Bill 7072, provides several new checks on tech and social media companies. Among other things: Platforms cann...
