|Let's start with a few tech things you should know about...|
|t||The New York Times reports Uber has fired Anthony Levandowski, according to an email sent to employees Tuesday. Uber was ordered by the court to turn over any documents it had control of which meant Levandowski either needed to drop his 5th Amendment protection or leave Uber.----Also the findings of Eric Holder’s internal investigation of Sexual Harassment will be presented to its board Wednesday and to the staff June 6.||https://www.nytimes.com/2017/05/30/technology/uber-anthony-levandowski.html?_r=0|

|t||Intel launched the Core X line of processors at Computex, ranging from Core i5 processors with 4 cores and 4 threads, to a new Core i9 with 18 cores and 36 threads. Most use an updated version of the Skylake architecture called Skylake X, while the 4-core models use the Kaby Lake X architecture. The chips will run on Intel's X299 chipset, and support Turbo Boost Max 3.0, which Intel claims offers 10% faster multithread and 15% single threaded performance.||https://www.theverge.com/circuitbreaker/2017/5/30/15710476/intel-core-x-processors-i9-chips-i5-i9-skylake-kaby-lake-computex|
|p||Sony has stopped shipping the PlayStation 3 to retailers in Japan.|
Sony stopped production of the 500 GB Standard model in December.
|t||The US Supreme Court ruled 8-0 that companies cannot claim patent violations after the first sale. Lexmark had sued to stop refurbished versions of its printer cartridges from being refilled with ink and re-sold by Impression Products Inc. Justice Ginsburg joined the majority but issued a partial dissent arguing the ruling should not apply overseas.||https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2017-05-30/u-s-supreme-court-curbs-patent-holders-power-to-block-resale|
|p||Harvard’s Berkman Klein Center for Internet and Society studied the effect of Wikipedia’s support for HTTPS on government censorship. Wikipedia added HTTPS support in 2011 and switched entirely to HTTPS in 2015.|
It means that government surveillance only sees that Wikipedia is being visited, not which page.
The researchers looked at Wikipedia’s global server traffic and daily request histories for 1.7 million articles to try to detect censorship events.
The study found that overall there was less censorship in June 2016, than there had been before the full transition to https in June 2015.
|t||Nvidia has announced a series of thin and light gaming notebooks called Max-Q. The laptops are 18mm thick, weigh 2.3 kg and include an Nvida desktop-class graphics card from the 1060 to the 1080. Nvidia’s WhisperMode dynamically changes frame rate to save GPU resources and cut down on fan noise. Max-Q gaming laptops will be available starting June 27 from partners including Acer, Alienware, Asus, HP, Lenovo, Maingear, Sager, and more.||https://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2017/05/nvidia-max-q-laptops-price-details/|

|Android Creator Andy Rubin announced the 5.7-inch Essential Phone with a pair of magnetic pins on the back to take advantage of modules like a 360-degree camera and phone dock. The edge to edge screen wraps around the camera leaving almost no bezel. It comes with a Qualcomm 835 processor, 4GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage. It has 1 USB-C port and no headphone jack and runs Android. The second lens to its 13-megapixel camera is a monochrome sensor for help in low light. All of that is wrapped up in a titanium and ceramic case. The Essential Phone will sell in the US for $699.||https://www.theverge.com/2017/5/30/15711170/essential-phone-announcement-price-android-andy-rubin|
|Andy Rubin announced the Essential Home as well. It’s a digital assistant and speaker that can be activated with a question, a tap or a glance. It has a round-autodisplay on the top to show information. Processing happens almost entirely on the device and data is stored locally, not in the cloud. Wired says the AmbientOS it runs will be compatible with SmartThings, HomeKit, Nest, "and the rest," including Amazon Voice Service, Siri and Google Assistant and will ship later this summer.||https://www.wired.com/2017/05/essential-andy-rubin/#slide-6|
|“We thought that people weren’t swinging for the fences and doing big-vision things in consumer products.”|
Essential does not WANT to sell 50 million phones this quarter. It’s too many. For example, German company injection-molds the titanium parts
360-degree camera ships with the phone for $749.
Devices are your personal property. We won’t force you to have anything on them you don’t want to have.
We will always play well with others. Closed ecosystems are divisive and outdated.
Premium materials and true craftsmanship shouldn’t be just for the few.
Devices shouldn’t become outdated every year. They should evolve with you.
Technology should assist you so that you can get on with enjoying your life.
Simple is always better
