Senate passes sweeping climate-focused Inflation Reduction Act

After more than a year of infighting, President Joe Bidens climate agenda has cleared a significant hurdle. On Sunday, Senate Democrats passed the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 in a 51-50 decision that went along party lines and saw Vice President Kamala Harris cast the tie-breaking vote, reports The Washington Post . If passed by the House, the 755-page bill would authorize the single largest expenditure to combat climate change in the nations history. In all, the legislation calls for $370 billion in spending to reduce US greenhouse emissions by approximately 40 percent by the end of this decade. Among the climate change provisions most likely to affect consumers is a reworked federal EV tax credit . The Inflation Reduction Act would provide up to $7,500 in subsidies for electric SUVs, trucks and vans that cost less than $80,000 and cars under $55,000. It would also allow people to claim up to $4,000 when buying a used EV. In both cases, an income ceiling would prevent those who make more than the average American from taking advantage of the legislation. On top of EV subsidies, the $370 billion in investments set aside by the bill would incentivize the building of wind, solar and other renewable power sources. The act also calls for the creation of a $1.5 billion program that would pay companies that reduce their methane output. With Sundays vote, the Inflation Reduction Act now moves to the House, which will return from its summer recess on Friday. For much of 2021 and the first half of 2022, President Bidens Build Back Better plan looked doomed to go nowhere due to opposition from Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia. In late July, however, Manchin and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer announced they had come to a compromise. In exchange for his support, the Inflation Reduction Act includes a provision that would see the federal government reinstate canceled oil and gas leases in the Gulf of Mexico and Alaska's Cook Inlet. While that concession upset environmentalists, its not expected to undo the good the Inflation Reduction Act is poised to do for the environment. According to one estimate by Princeton Universitys Zero Lab , the bill could reduce US greenhouse emissions by about 6.3 billion tons through 2032.

Apple reportedly tells suppliers to avoid 'Made in Taiwan' labels on shipments to China

Apple has reportedly warned Taiwanese suppliers to ensure shipments to China comply with a longstanding labeling regulation following House Speaker Nancy Pelosis recent visit to Taipei . According to Nikkei (via The Guardian ), the company recently told manufacturers on the island that parts bound for the mainland must list Chinese Taipei or Taiwan, China as their source. Thats in line with a policy China has had in place for years but only began enforcing after tensions with the US flared up following Pelosis visit last week. Under the policy, officials can delay and even reject shipments that say Made in Taiwan. The self-governing island has its own set of labeling rules. Shipments must list Taiwan or Republic of China as the point of origin. Apple did not immediately respond to Engadgets request for comment. The tech giant and many other American companies have a complicated relationship with China. If the report is accurate, it wouldnt be the first time Apple has sought to appease the Chinese Communist Party. In 2019, the company removed the Taiwan flag emoji from iOS in Hong Kong amid the pro-democracy protests that occurred in the city that year. In this instance, Apple may have felt it had no choice but to comply with Chinas policy on Taiwanese shipments. In April , Tim Cook said semiconductor shortages significantly impacted the companys iPad business. Ahead of its iPhone 14 launch later this year, additional delays due to a customs dispute would likely be disastrous for Apple.

Rumor Claims Next iPad Pro to Feature New Four-Pin Smart Connector

A new rumor claims that the next-generation 12.9-inch and 11-inch iPad Pro will feature a new four-pin Smart Connector, an update from the current three-pin connector in the iPad Pro. The rumor from Macotakara , citing eliable sources, says that the next iPad Pro, expected to debut possibly as soon as this fall, will feature a new Smart Connector that has four-pins rather than three. The publication suggests that the additional pin could make it easier to power accessories through the Smart Connector.

Apple is working on updated versions of both the 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro that are expected to launch in September or October . It has been recently reported that Apple plans to delay the launch of iPadOS 16 until October , which could coincide with the launch of new iPads.

Twitter confirms vulnerability exposed data of anonymous account owners

Twitter has confirmed a vulnerability in its code led to a data exposure late last year. In a blog post published on Friday , the company said a malicious actor took advantage of a zero-day flaw before it became aware of and patched the issue in January 2022. The vulnerability was discovered by a security researcher who contacted Twitter through the companys bug bounty program . When Twitter first learned of the flaw, it said it had no evidence to suggest it had been exploited. However, an individual told Bleeping Computer last month that they took advantage of the vulnerability to obtain data on more than 5.4 million accounts. Twitter said it could not confirm how many users were affected by the exposure. The vulnerability allowed the bad actor to determine whether an email address or phone number was tied to an existing Twitter account. In turn, they could use that information to determine the identity of an accounts owner. We are publishing this update because we arent able to confirm every account that was potentially impacted, and are particularly mindful of people with pseudonymous accounts who can be targeted by state or other actors, Twitter said. If you operate a pseudonymous Twitter account, we understand the risks an incident like this can introduce and deeply regret that this happened. Twitter said it would directly notify every account owner it could confirm was affected by the exposure. For users trying to keep their identity hidden, the company recommends not adding a publicly known phone number or email address to an account. It also suggests adding two-factor authentication.

Apple could be developing a smart display

Apple could significantly expand its smart home product line within the next two years, according to Bloombergs Mark Gurman. In his latest Power On newsletter , Gurman reports the company has at least four new smart home devices in its labs. Included in that list is the new HomePod model Gurman first wrote about back in June, in addition to a refreshed HomePod mini . The former will reportedly look and sound like the original 2018 model . Apple discontinued the HomePod in 2021 without announcing a direct replacement. The two other devices represent entirely new products for the company. According to Gurman, one is a kitchen accessory that combines an iPad with a speaker. Meanwhile, the other reportedly brings together the functionality of an Apple TV, camera and HomePod into a living room device. He says Apple could release one of those two products by the end of next year or early 2024 but warns that not all will see the light of the day. A kitchen device would see Apple competing more closely with Amazon and Google. The two are most closely associated with the smart display category thanks to releases like the Nest Hub and Echo Show 15 . It would be interesting to see what Apple thinks it can bring to the field since most smart displays dont feel essential.

Hitting the Books: How much that insurance monitoring discount might really be costing you

Machine learning systems have for years now been besting their human counterparts at everything from Go and Jeopardy! to drug discovery and cancer detection. With all the advances that the field has made, it's not unheard of for people to be wary of robots replacing them in tomorrow's workforce. These concerns are misplaced, argues Gerd Gigerenzer argues in his new book How to Stay Smart in a Smart World , if for no other reason than uncertainty itself. AIs are phenomenally capable machines, but only if given sufficient data to act on. Introduce the acutely fickle precariousness of human nature into their algorithms and watch their predictive accuracy plummet otherwise, we'd never have need to swipe left. In the excerpt below, Gigerenzer discusses the hidden privacy costs of sharing your vehicle's telematics with the insurance company. MIT Press Excerpted from How to Stay Smart in a Smart World by Gerd Gigerenzer. Published by MIT Press. Copyright 2021 by Gerd Gigerenzer. All rights reserved. When Your Car Reports You to the Police If self-driving cars are not going to happen, one alternative appears to betraining humans to use AI as a support system but to stay alert and retain control if it fails which is called augmented intelligence. It amounts to partial automation, that is, to sophisticated versions of Level 2 or 3. Yet augmented intelligence entails more than just adding useful features to your car and may well lead us into a different future, where AI is used to both support and surveil us. That possible future is driven more by insurance companies and police than by car manufacturers. Its seeds are in telematics. Young drivers are reckless, overconfident, and an insurance risk, according to the stereotype. Some indeed are, but many are not. Nevertheless, insurers often treat them as one group and charge a high premium. Telematics insurance can change this by offering better rates for safe drivers. The idea is to calculate the premium from a persons actual driving behavior instead of from that of the average driver. To do so, a black box that connects to the insurer is installed in the car (using a smartphone is possible and cheaper but less reliable). The black box records the drivers behavior and calculates a safety score. Figure 4.6 shows the scoring system of one of the first telematics insurers. It observes four features and assigns them different weights. MIT Press Rapid acceleration or harsh braking is assigned the greatest weight, followed by driving over the speed limit. Each driver starts with a monthly budget of 100 points for each of the four features. An event results in points being subtracted, such as 20 points for the first rapid acceleration or for driving over the speed limit. At the end of the month, the remaining points are weighted as shown and summed up to a total safety score. Although telematics is often called black box insurance, the algorithm is not at all a black box like most love algorithms. It is explained in detail on the insurers web-site, and everyone can understand and verify the resulting score. Personalized tariffs are advertised as promoting fairness. They do so by taking individual driving style into account. But they also create new sources of discrimination when driving at night and in cities is punished. Hospital staff, for instance, may have little choice to avoid working at night and in cities. Thus, some of the features are under the drivers control, but not all. Interestingly, one feature that is under the drivers control is absent in virtually all personalized tariffs: texting while driving. And the black box that allows fairness also enables surveillance. Consider a possible future. Why should the black box send a record of speeding only to the insurer? A copy to the police would be extremely handy and save them much effort. It would make all speed traps obsolete. If you speed, the car prints out the ticket on time or, more conveniently, deducts the fine automatically from your online account. Your relationship to your beloved car may change. There is a slippery slope between fairness and total surveillance. Would you be in favor of a new generation of cars that send traffic violations directly to the police? In a survey I conducted, one-third of the adults said yes, more so among those over sixty and less among those younger than thirty. The technology for this future already exists, as most new cars come with a black box installed. The data it collects do not belong to the car owner and can be used in court against the driver. In Georgia, the police obtained black box data without a warrant after a deadly accident, and the driver was found guilty of reckless driving and speeding. While the motives for surveillance vary, digital technology supports all of them. One need not even buy telematics insurance. Modern cars have built-in internet connections, and without it being made transparent inthe owners manual most send their car manufacturer all the data they can collect every couple of minutes, including where the driver currently is, whether harsh braking occurred, how often the position of the driver seat was changed, which gas or battery-charging stations were visited, and how many CDs and DVDs were inserted. Moreover, as soon as you plug in your smartphone, the car may copy your personal information, including contacts addresses, emails, text messages, and even photos. Car manufacturers are remarkably silent about this activity, and when asked with whom they share this data, they typically do not reply. That information helps to find out many other things of interest, such as how often drivers visited McDonalds, how healthily they live, and whom they occasionally visit at night. Connected cars can support justice and improve safety but also spy on you. Telematics insurance embodies the double face of digital technology: surveillance in exchange for convenience.

No, throttling and overheating isnt a problem on M2 MacBook Air

Apples release of the new MacBook Air was highly anticipated, mostly for two reasons: its highly anticipated redesign and the introduction of the M2 processor, the next generation of Apples M-series of chips. As expected, the reviews for the M2 MacBook Air have been favorable, with Macworlds Jason Cross calling it a success and delightful everyday computer for most users. But the praise for the MacBook Air has been overshadowed by reports of throttled performance. Article after article warns of a performance shortcoming , severe throttling, and how it cant handle the heat , and video after video demonstrates whats supposedly wrong with the new laptop. It might lead some people to question whether its worth their money and wonder what Apple was thinking. Heres the thing: weve been here before, people. Back in 2020 when the new M1 MacBook Air was introduced, it made splashy headlines with its jaw-dropping speed improvement over the Intel chips as well as the throttling it needed to maintain a proper temperature under more strenuous workloads. In fact, heat has always been an issue with the MacBook Air even before Apple silicon. Its the same story, different year. Why is it news all over again? Why didnt Apple fix the problem? The answer is simple and lies in what the MacBook Airs intended user. MacBook Air M2 (2022) Read our review MSRP: $1,199 Best Prices Today: $1199 at Apple | $1199.00 at Best Buy Using the proper tool for the job The MacBook Air doesnt have any fans built into it. Its a passively-cooled machine, meaning that it doesnt use any special hardware to actively cool it. This is done purposefully by design so that the MacBook Air can be thinner than the MacBook Pro. If the MacBook Air starts to heat up, it will throttle performance to maintain a proper running temperature. This is another aspect of the MacBook Air that is by design. The MacBook Air is also Apples most popular laptop because its the companys most affordable one. Its price attracts what well call casual users, those who spend most of their time on the web, use productivity apps like iWork or Microsoft Office, stream audio and video either for entertainment or for online meetings, and other productivity tasks that everyone does with a computer. The most stressful work likely involves apps like Photos, iMovie, GarageBand, or some other consumer-level creative software for short stints. If youre using a MacBook Air and youre taxing the CPU all the time and you get frustrated by it, you know what? Youre using the wrong tool for the job. The MacBook Air handles these task without any problemsits as fast as the 13-inch MacBook Pro with the same M2 processor. Its the one most people should buyadd the Airs redesign and feature set, and we think its a better value than the 13-inch Pro. If Ive just described what you do on a daily basis, the MacBook Air is a better value for you. (There is a separate performance issue with the MacBook Air or 13-inch MacBook Pro with a 256GB SSD that is a head-scratching design decision, but its not related to the throttling concerns.) Thats not to say the MacBook Air doesnt throttle. It does. But what makes it throttle? Tasks that casual users dont regularly do. For example, one report of the Airs severe throttling involved an export of 8K Canon RAW video . You know what produces 8K Canon RAW video? Cameras that are priced over $4,000. You know who works in 8K Canon RAW video? Video professionals. You know what Macs they buy? MacBook Pros. The MacBook Air isnt a high-end work machine, even if it does have an speedy processor. IDG The MacBook Air throttles when doing CPU-intensive tasks that are often done by users doing serious work, often in a professional setting. This is by design. If youre using a MacBook Air and you are often rendering 8K RAW video, or producing lengthy high-resolution videos in Final Cut Pro, or professionally making music, or doing whatever it is that you do that taxes the CPU all the time and you get frustrated by it, you know what? Youre using the wrong tool for the job. You should be using a MacBook Pro. If you insist that Apple fix the MacBook Air instead, ask yourself, if youre willing to spend on equipment to produce the content you want, why are you skimping on the MacBook to do the finish the job? Headlines that grab you A lot of these reports that use screaming headlines about the issue do actually point out that you have to be doing something atypical of a casual user to get the MacBook Air to throttle. But there are also a lot of reports that gloss over the fact that youre probably not going to render a 60-minute 4K video in Final Cut Pro while you have 20 tabs open in Safari and youre sorting your FileMaker Pro collection database of 10,000 gemstones. And when they gloss over this, it makes it seem like its an issue that affects everyone. As someone who works in media, I admit, were in a battle for your attention, and some outlets are more willing to exaggerate in their headlines than others. (And yes, Macworld is guilty of this too. I hear about it in your emails and tweets.) But most outlets do clarify in its content who the intended user is for the MacBook Air. The fanless MacBook Air is by designApple isnt overlooking anything. Its target user is the rest of us, everyday users with productivity tasks to get done. The MacBook Pro is for users who are demanding of processing power. Get the right Mac for what you want to do. 14-inch MacBook Pro (2021) MSRP: $1,999 (8-Core CPU, 14-Core GPU, 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD); $2,499 (10-Core CPU, 16-Core GPU, 16GB RAM, 1TB SSD) Best Prices Today: $1,899.91 at Amazon | $1999 at Apple | $1999 at B&H Photo and Video Read our full 14-inch MacBook Pro (2021) review 13-inch MacBook Pro M2 (2022) MSRP: $1,299 Best Prices Today: $1149.00 at Best Buy | $1299 at Apple | Not Available at Amazon Read our full 13-inch MacBook Pro M2 (2022) review MacBook

Gurman: Apple Considering Updated HomePod Mini Alongside New High-End HomePod

Apple is reportedly considering an update to the HomePod mini as it plans a larger push into the Home devices market, which includes releasing an updated version of the full-sized HomePod in the early months of 2023, according to Bloomberg's Mark Gurman . In his latest Power On newsletter , Gurman reports that Apple is considering updating the HomePod mini, which was announced in October 2020. Gurman doesn't shed any details on what a possible update could include but states it's unlikely to be anything super-impressive. As has been previously reported , Apple is planning to resurrect the original full-sized HomePod after discontinuing it in March 2021 . The updated version of the HomePod is rumored to feature an updated S8 processor and possibly a new multi-touch display on top. Gurman says the new full-sized HomePod is on track for a launch in early 2023, lining up with a timeline set forth by Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo . Other than an updated HomePod mini and a new full-sized HomePod, Gurman has previously reported that Apple is working on several new products for the Home. The most ambitious project under development is reportedly a HomePod product that combines a speaker, Apple TV functions, and a FaceTime camera into one device. Additionally, Apple is working on a device focused on use in the kitchen that combines an iPad and a speaker connected to a robotic arm . Gurman expects at least one of these two Home products to launch towards the end of 2023 or in early 2024.
