Apple Cars May Not Have Steering Wheels and Brakes

Recently, a report by The Information revealed some of the current research and development progress and design details of Apple's car. These include:

Apple is seeking permission from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to release vehicles without steering wheels and brake pedals .

Apple cars will likely have four face-to-face seats so passengers can talk to each other.

· Its roof will adopt a curved design similar to the Volkswagen Beetle.

· Designers are testing a trunk that lifts automatically .

· The team is considering a large, liftable seatback screen .

According to Bloomberg, the interior of Apple's car may have referenced the design of Canoo Lifestyle

Employees at Apple's car project are currently considering how to disguise a self-driving test car, code-named "M101," that could hit the road as early as next year. Jony Ive, Apple's former chief design officer, remains on the project as a consultant.

But the report also said that there are signs that Apple's self-driving software is still immature. In the first quarter of this year, one of Apple's test cars nearly hit a jogger crossing the street on an unmarked crosswalk while traveling at 15 miles per hour.

At the time, Apple's self-driving software had identified the jogger as a moving pedestrian within a second, but only slightly adjusted the path, forcing the backup safety driver to make an emergency stop. The test car resumed driving a few days later. (The Information)

These two interfaces appear on WeChat and stop immediately

When using WeChat transfer, if the above two pop-up warnings appear on the user's payment page, WeChat will impose a 15-minute protection limit on the payment user.

This enables WeChat to intercept transactions and remind users to pay attention to the safety of funds when the system detects that the payee's account is suspected of fraud or malice.

During the "transfer cooling-off period", users should try their best to verify the identity of the recipient and consider transaction risks. After selecting "Release Payment Restriction" or after the 15-minute restriction period, the user can choose whether to continue the payment. (WeChat Security Center & Chinanews)

Twitter formally sues Musk

On July 12, Twitter formally sued Tesla CEO Musk in a Delaware court.

Twitter believes that Musk, after entering into a binding acquisition agreement, is now "rejecting his obligations to Twitter and its shareholders because the deal he signed is no longer in his personal interest."

As a result, Twitter is arguing that Musk violated the $44 billion buyout agreement, and hopes a court order will force Musk to complete the acquisition at $54.20 per share.

Later, Tesla CEO Elon Musk tweeted that it was "ironic", suspected to be a response to Twitter's lawsuit. (Sina Technology)

At around 22:30 on July 12, astronomers successively released the first photos taken by the Webb Space Telescope (JWST):

The Carina Nebula (Carina Nebula) , about 8,500 light-years away from Earth, is located in the southern sky in the direction of Carina, which contains a large number of massive stars.

The Southern Ring Nebula , about 2,000 light-years away from Earth, is located in the constellation Vela.

Uber whistleblower: Uber flouted the law, we sold a lie

Mark MacGann previously served as Uber's chief lobbyist for Europe, the Middle East and Africa, working closely with local governments.

Most recently, he provided the Guardian with more than 120,000 internal documents aimed at exposing Uber's misconduct between 2013-2017.

MacGann himself was involved and cannot be exonerated, but he said it was remorse that drove him to stand up:

"I'm the one who talks to the government…I'm the one who tells people they should change their rules because drivers will benefit and people will benefit from economic opportunity."

"But that's not true—in fact, we sold a lie."

Some of the information exposed by these documents:

Uber’s questionable behavior in lobbying new markets to change existing laws ;

How Uber used a "kill switch" mechanism (which cuts off local team devices' access to the system immediately after being checked) to avoid regulatory crackdowns on its violations in at least six countries;

How Uber built and maintained its tax avoidance structure .

Yesterday, " Silicon Star " organized and reported the above information, and interested readers can jump to read it.

The Guardian shared the 120,000 materials with more than 40 media organisations around the world, with more likely to follow.

In response, Uber responded: "We don't make excuses for past behavior, but those behaviors are no longer in line with our current values. Instead, we ask the public to judge us based on our past five years and future behavior."

The Guardian has also launched an in-depth series "The Uber Files" for readers who want more details

But if you don't want to watch heavy reports for a while, the American TV series "Super Vibrant: The Battle for Uber" launched some time ago can also provide another perspective.

LeTV responded that there is no "996" and "internal volume"

On the afternoon of July 12, @LeTV Video responded that there was no news of "996" and "internal volume" on the Internet.

LeTV said: "No 996 is true, and there will never be any in the future, and it has never defaulted on employee wages and social security in the past five years." But for rumors such as "no introversion" and "living a fairy life without a boss", LeEco believes that such a statement is too absolute.

In addition, Zhang Wei, CEO of Lerongzhixin, also said in an interview that LeTV Video and LeTV TV have their own membership and advertising revenue. LeTV Video currently also has MCN and small programs that cooperate with other third parties. There are smart hardware income and so on. "The Legend of Zhen Huan does have some revenue, but it's not enough to support a 400-person company." (First Financial)
