Self-driving car startup Voyage brings on ex-Tesla, Cruise and Uber exec as CTO: Voyage, the autonomous driving startup that currently operates self-driving cars in retirement communities, has brought on its first CTO, Drew Gray. Gray most recently worked at Uber as its director of engineering, leading the deep learning and perception team in San Francisco, according to his LinkedIn. This comes shortly after the company poached Uber’s head of policy for autonomous vehicles and aviation, Justin Erlich, to lead its strategy, policy and legal efforts. Voyage, Gray said, was the obvious choice because of the mobility needs it addresses for the 125,000 residents in The Villages in Florida. “Private communities like The Villages are often much simpler with respect to roadways and traffic patterns, and allow us to implement creative technical solutions that aren’t possible everywhere else due to regulation,” Gray wrote in a Medium post. “We believe there to be a massive un-tapped autonomous ride-sharing business in locations like The Villages — all with approachable autonomy requirements we believe we can solve sooner rather than later.” Gray, who has also held roles at Tesla, Cruise and Otto, joined Voyage about a month ago to help the company achieve its mission of bringing autonomous vehicles to the masses. “The autonomous vehicle industry is still so young, it’s an incredibly rare to work side-by-side with someone who has held senior leadership positions at many of the foundational companies in the field,” Voyage CEO Oliver Cameron wrote on Voyage’s blog. “Drew has done just that, contributing to major engineering initiatives at places like Tesla, Cruise, Otto, and Uber ATG.” Gray and Cameron met back in 2016 when the two collaborated for the self-driving car nanodegree program at Udacity, which Voyage spun out from last year. Cameron was Udacity’s head of curriculum and Gray taught some of the deep learning content for the nanodegree program. I’ve reached out to Uber...

Backed by psychology, reviews are big for your business — here’s why: Having been involved in the development of several e-commerce products over the years, one thing I’ve learned is that a great product and a persuasive marketing message aren’t always enough to help you generate lasting success. In fact, there’s one simple ingredient that practically every business needs if it wants to have any chance of sticking around in the long run: customer reviews. Do you want to be a cryptocurrency millionaire? Don’t get your hopes up. Here’s a closer look at some of the reasons why generating reviews should be a top priority for your business. The power of positive word-of-mouth There are many techniques you can use to spread the word about your e-commerce shop — but how often will potential customers actually believe the messages you’re sending their way? In reality, your current customers can do a far better job of selling than you could manage on your own. It can be helpful to contrast how customers view print and digital ads in comparison to word-of-mouth recommendations. Surveys have found that less than 25 percent of customers trust the messages they see in digital and print media. Online reviews, on the other hand, are trusted by a whopping 84 percent of consumers, who view such reviews as a personal recommendation. Why is there such a disparity? Online reviews ultimately serve as a modern-day form of word-of-mouth. If your family and friends haven’t tried a product, these reviews give you the opportunity to learn what other people think of it. You’re not hearing what the marketing company wants you to hear. You’re getting insights from regular, everyday people. Customer reviews tap into our desires for transparency, providing what is deemed as an impartial, third-party recommendation — one that comes from someone without ulterior motives. Customer reviews also relate to... Continue Reading The post Backed by psychology, reviews are big for your business — here’s why appeared first on PlanYour.Website.

Ubisoft Reveals Ghost Recon Wildlands’ Second Special Operation: Ghost Recon Wildlands’ free Special Operation 2 update arrives July 24 and brings a host of new features to the game. The highlight of the additions is Ghost Mode, a permadeath mode aimed at creating a more realistic experience for hardcore players. In Ghost Mode, players can only use one primary weapon at a time and can only change loadouts by swapping them at an ammo box or looting a dead body. Any ammo remaining in the magazine will be lost when reloaded in Ghost Mode, and friendly fire is enabled. Death in Ghost Mode means the loss of any progress made on that character, so players will need create a new character before starting Ghost Mode. Additional changes include the ability to turn off AI companions in the game’s campaign and Ghost Mode, two new maps for the game’s Ghost War PVP mode, victory screens for the winning team in Ghost War matches, new daily PVP challenges, and an “observer mode” that allows players to review and show off their Ghost War games. The update also brings new items to the game’s loot boxes and a new economy system that allows Prestige Credits to be spent in the campaign as well as PVP. Ubisoft says it will soon reveal the theme of Special Operation 2, along with new PVE missions and two new PVP classes. For more Ghost Recon Wildlands, check out our review.

Cloudflare launches the Athenian Project to protect election websites: Cloudflare has launched a new initiative, called the Athenian Project, to protect electoral websites from online attacks. The service is available free of charge to state and local governments, and offers Cloudflare’s enterprise-level security and reliability services. Hate spammy ICOs and crappy cryptocurrencies? So do we. Cloudflare’s sevices will ensure that websites aren’t vulnerable to brute force attacks, which could potentially allow an adversary to gain access and deface web-pages, or proliferate incorrect information. The service will also ensure that electoral websites will stay online during peak times, or whilst a website is under attack from a DDoS (distributed denial of service) attack. So far, a handful of governments have registered with the Athenian Project. These include the San Francisco Board of elections, Pickens County in South Carolina, the North Carolina State Board of Education, and the states of Hawaii, Rhode Island, and Idaho. To qualify, a website has to handle voter data (including registration or verification information), relate to the administration of elections, or the reporting of election results. The company has also published an interactive guide to protecting election websites, aimed at IT administrators working in this space. As we’ve seen over the past few years, in countries as far-flung as the US and France, digital attacks against elections can be disastrous. They can shift public opinion, influence turnout, and in some cases, undermine confidence in democracy. This initiative from Cloudflare is welcome, but for it to truly work at scale, the political will has to be there. It’s not clear that’s true anymore, especially in the US, where the house has refused renew funding for electoral security. Depressingly, “let’s protect our elections” is now a partisan political statement.

First Trailer For DC’s Gritty Teen Titans Show Has Strong Words For Batman: A live-action Teen Titans show has been in development for a while now, bouncing from TNT and being on developmental hiatus until DC finally decided to put it on DC Universe, the publisher’s streaming service. Today, we got a first taste of what that show, called Titans, looks like with a debut trailer. There’s a lot of blood, angst, and a big FU to the Caped Crusader himself. You can watch the whole thing here: No word on when the show will release yet but we’re sure Teen Titan fans have strong opinions about the gritty tone of this show given the franchise’s reputation for being wacky and lighthearted. This version seems more in line with the tone of Zack Snyder’s DC films (Man Of Steel, Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice).  Let us know what you think in the comments below.

You need a VPN to stay safe online, and we’ve got one for life that’s just $34: So…the presidents of the U.S. and Russia want to initiate a world cybersecurity task force. Its goal: thwarting web-based threats on a global scale. Let’s assess this idea for a moment. At best, it may take a while for an internationally-administered body to stamp out every last scam and cretin hiding behind every cyber-rock and digital bush. At worst…well, it’s maybe best not to think about what a global cybersecurity cabal may think up. It’s probably still your best bet to just handle the safeguarding of your digital systems and information yourself. For any tech-savvy user, that still means a VPN (virtual private network), so get in on one of the web’s most respected services with a lifetime of VPN Unlimited. It’s currently more than 90 percent off, only $34 with coupon code “DIGITALWEEK15” from TNW Deals. With literally dozens of companies hocking digital security protection, VPN Unlimited earned top rated reviews last year from sources like PC Mag, Software Informer, and Laptop Review Pro. That’s a level of confidence and trust that isn’t easy to come by in a field packed with flighty VPN options. With VPN Unlimited, you’ve got an iron-clad path to the web that’s completely hidden, allowing for fully-encrypted protection on up to five devices, whether you’re connected via Wi-Fi or cell signal. Their network of more than 400 servers in over 70 locations across the globe offers the full scope of their name: unlimited bandwidth on unlimited high speed connections. On top of that, VPN Unlimited also gets you around all those nasty web content location restrictions, meaning you can watch your U.S. streaming services like Netflix and Hulu anywhere in the world — or view international content in your own home unfettered. There are even additional safety features to hide your identity in tightly-restricted web...

Apple reportedly confirms keyboard reliability fix in internal document: An internal Apple document distributed to Apple Authorized Service Providers and obtained by MacGénération and MacRumors confirms that there’s a membrane under the keyboard to “prevent debris from entering the butterfly mechanism”. This is the first time Apple acknowledges that the third generation butterfly keyboard tries to fix unreliability issues. “The keyboard has a membrane under the keycaps to prevent debris from entering the butterfly mechanism. The procedure for the space bar replacement has also changed from the previous model,” the internal document says. When Apple introduced the updated MacBook Pro, the company told everyone that the keyboard had been updated for quieter typing. But iFixit found out that the company actually added thin silicon barriers under each keycap. It’s clear that Apple didn’t want to publicly state that there is a reliability issue with its recent 12-inch MacBook and MacBook Pro models. The company doesn’t want to fuel those lawsuits. But if you’ve been using a MacBook Pro or a 12-inch MacBook, you know that the butterfly keyboard isn’t ideal. While some people love typing with it, the main issue is that it’s not reliable. Sometimes, keys become stuck, you can’t use a letter, or it inserts two letters every time you press that key. Even worse, if you try to bring it to an Apple Store to get it fixed, it’s an expensive process that involves replacing a good chunk of the computer. Dust, sand or hair can render your computer unusable. It’s still too early to say if the 2018 MacBook Pro is more reliable. But Apple needs to update the 12-inch MacBook right away because it’s outrageous that they still sell a laptop with a broken keyboard.

Human interaction keeps crumbling as Bitmoji become your Tinder wingman: Tinder just announced it’s adding Bitmoji to DMs for users in Canada and Mexico, with plans to launch the feature in the US before the end of the summer. According to Tinder, the collaboration with Snapchat’s Bitmoji is meant to help people break the ice — without revealing too much info, like your Snapchat details. Since Tinder doesn’t think you’re smooth with words, Bitmoji gives you some freedom in expressing your personality in a casual and sometimes witty way (which words apparently can’t do). Your Bitmoji can flirt by tossing a rose into its mouth, offer out drinks by throwing itself into a martini glass, and of course, perform the official mating ritual of millennials, ‘the dab.’ Now who wouldn’t agree to a date after receiving these frisky messages? Bitmoji, Bitmoji, wherefore art thou Bitmoji? Is romance dead? I think Tinder is already quite uncomfortable since it’s pretty much just catalog shopping for your next potential partner with a few subconscious right swipes. But adding your Bitmoji will make human interaction even easier to avoid. Since Tinder doesn’t allow users to send (dick) pictures within the app, a personalized avatar of you is your only option to visually express yourself. Admittedly, I’d rather receive a Bitmoji than an unsolicited dick pic.  If dick pics were the first step to killing romance, then flirting Bitmoji’s are the final nail in its coffin. It’s frankly a childish and immature way to flirt. You can hide behind your Bitmoji, just like you hid behind your friend at school, and rely on them to do the flirting for you. I can’t help but be reminded of prepubescent flirting where you’d send notes in class to your crush: ‘Do u fancy me?’ We’re becoming lazy in the dating game. We don’t try mingle with people on our...
