Apple could release a 16-inch MacBook Pro and a 31-inch 6K display

Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo is quite reliable when it comes to Apple’s road map. And he shared a ton of information over the weekend in a new report obtained by 9to5mac. In 2019, you can expect a bigger MacBook Pro, a new display and upgrades to iPhones, iPads and AirPods. Let’s start with the Mac. According to Kuo, Apple has been working on a MacBook Pro with an all-new design. It’s unclear if those future models will retain the same keyboard, as many users have been complaining about the reliability of the butterfly keyboard. But Kuo learned there will be a bigger model, with a 16 to 16.5-inch display. Let’s hope that Apple is going to trim down the bezels …

Litho is a finger-worn controller for augmented reality, IoT and other spatial interactions

I first encountered the founders of Litho, a new hardware and software startup developing a new finger-worn controller, at London’s Pitch@Palace last April. The event sees startups pitch in front of the British royal family and other esteemed guests, and naturally the company’s young founders, 24-year-old Nat Martin (CEO) and 25-year-old Charlie Bruce (CTO), were a little overawed by the occasion, just like many of the other founders pitching that day. However, perhaps unbeknownst to them, Litho was also one of the more notable companies, not least because, as the saying goes, hardware is hard. Fast-forward to today and the young company is ready to show the world the first publicly available iteration of what it has been building: an …

‘I’ve Gotta Be Me’ explores Sammy Davis Jr. career and contradictions

(CNN)“Sammy Davis, Jr.: I’ve Gotta Be Me” captures an entertainer who was a mass of contradictions, showcasing his prodigious and remarkably varied talent, juxtaposed with his often tone-deaf forays into politics. More than a mere appreciation, this look at Davis’ personal journey through a tumultuous period in US history makes this an especially rich “American Masters” documentary. What no one could deny, ultimately, was Davis’ talent, from dancing to singing, acting to impersonations — including spot-on renditions of white actors, like Humphrey Bogart, which he was told in no uncertain terms not to do. (There’s an anecdote about Bogart himself counseling Davis on how to portray him.) As Billy Crystal notes, Davis was a “diminutive man” who looked huge when …

Plastic Contaminants Found Inside Eggs Of Seabirds In Remote Arctic Wilderness

Welcome to the Anthropocene: an age where the footprints of the industrialized world have trampled over every corner of the natural world – even inside bird eggs from one of the world’s most isolated wildernesses. Researchers have recently detailed the discovery of phthalates, hormone-disrupting chemicals used in plastic production, within the eggs of northern fulmars in the remote stretches of the Canadian Arctic, The Times reports. Speaking at the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) annual meeting in Washington DC this weekend, scientists from the Canadian Wildlife Service explained that the chemicals are believed to have leached in from plastic debris that the birds ingested while hunting for fish. The contaminants then made their way into the bloodstream of the …
