Antarctica sea ice reaches alarming low for third year in a row

For the third year in a row, sea ice coverage around Antarctica has dropped below 2m sq km – a threshold which before 2022 had not been breached since satellite measurements started in 1979. The latest data from the US National Snow and Ice Data Center confirms the past three years have been the three lowest on record for the amount of sea ice floating around the continent. Scientists said another exceptionally low year was further evidence of a “regime shift”, with new research indicating the continent’s sea ice has undergone an “abrupt critical transition”. Antarctica’s sea ice reaches its lowest extent at the height of the continent’s summer in February each year. On 18 February the five-day average of sea ice cover fell to 1.99m sq km and on 21 February was at 1.98m sq km. The record low was 1.78m sq km, set in February 2023. ...

Samsung is about to display the Galaxy Ring for the first time

Last year there was much talk about Samsung launching a smart ring to compete with the likes of the Oura ring, and last month it became a reality when the Korean company teased the Galaxy Ring in a slick video at the end of its Unpacked event. It all went a bit quiet after that … until now, that is. In a message shared on Sunday, Samsung announced that the Galaxy Ring will be “publicly displayed for the first time” during this week’s Mobile World Congress (MWC) event in Barcelona, Spain. Related 5 phones you should buy instead of the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra Why I ditched my iPhone 15 Pro for the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra Samsung is fixing an annoying display issue on the Galaxy S24 Note the word “displayed,” as that almost certainly means no hands-on time for those in attendance, with the Galaxy Ring instead possibly placed inside a glass cabinet under lock and key. But it’s hoped that Samsung will use the occasion to offer potential Galaxy Ring customers a few more tidbits that might persuade some to hold off buying one of the alternatives available in an exciting sector that’s becoming increasingly competitive. At the least, we’d love Samsung to share an approximate launch date for its first-ever smart ring. If MWC visitors are indeed prohibited from trying out the Galaxy Ring, it could be that Samsung engineers still have a fair bit of work to do to when it comes to packing a plethora of health-tracking features into the tiny device. Or perhaps it’s just part of a carefully planned, drawn-out marketing campaign designed to increase awareness and intensify anticipation before launch day (most likely it’s a bit of both). We’ll know more on Monday and we’ll be sure to update then. In the meantime, check out this Digital Trends article that features some carefully considered ideas on what Samsung needs to do to make the Galaxy Ring a hit — from someone who definitely knows a thing or two about smart rings.

Mark Zuckerberg's Visit to South Korea Sparks Speculation Regarding Meta, LG Rumored Partnership fo

There's speculation circulating about a potential collaboration between Meta and LG to develop a competitor for Vision Pro. Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg is scheduled to visit South Korea this week to engage in discussions about launching a headset integrated with webOS by 2025. Meta, LG Partnership Industry sources indicate that Mark Zuckerberg is scheduled to meet with the Chief Executive Officer of LG Electronics to solidify the terms of their partnership. As reported by The Korea Economic Daily, this visit marks Zuckerberg's first publicly acknowledged trip to South Korea since 2014 when he collaborated with Samsung to finalize the Gear VR smartphone headset partnership. Six months ago, another South Korean news outlet revealed that Meta had joined forces with LG to develop upcoming Quest Pro headsets. However, this isn't the inaugural collaboration between Meta and a seasoned consumer electronics firm for a VR headset. Previously, Samsung managed the hardware for Gear VR, Xiaomi manufactured Oculus Go, and Oculus Rift S were both manufactured and co-designed by Lenovo. All three headsets prominently displayed both the partner company's logo and Oculus branding. The extent of LG's brand integration into Quest Pro 2 remains uncertain, as does whether it will retain this name. Another example of a software-focused Big Tech company teaming up with a Korean hardware manufacturer for an XR headset is evident. Last year, Samsung announced its partnership with Google for a headset, with Google managing the software side. This headset is expected to be released later this year. Potential Features Meta is set to manage the software aspect of the new headset, while incorporating webOS, the operating system found in LG TVs. The specifics of this integration remain unclear, but it could potentially mean the headset will feature a virtual LG TV experience. This integration has the potential to seamlessly bring over popular streaming services such as Netflix, Disney+, HBO Max, Prime Video, Apple TV+, Hulu, Paramount+, and VUDU, without requiring additional developer efforts. In contrast, while the Apple Vision Pro places a strong emphasis on media consumption and includes native apps for Disney+ and Apple TV+, as well as support for iPad versions of platforms like Prime Video, the Quest currently lacks such comprehensive app support. Although the Quest does have a Netflix app, it only supports 480p streaming and lacks features like downloads, passthrough, or hand tracking. The upcoming Quest Pro 2 might introduce Codec Avatars, an extensive research and development endeavor by Meta. This project aims to transform remote communication by creating photorealistic avatars driven in real-time by headsets equipped with face-tracking sensors. In contrast, Apple's Personas pursue a similar objective but are currently stuck in the uncanny valley and confined to a 2D display. ...

Honor’s Magic 6 Pro launches internationally with AI-powered eye tracking on the way

A month and a half after debuting the Magic 6 Pro in China, Honor is announcing global availability of its latest flagship at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain. Alongside it, the company has also announced pricing for the new Porsche Design Honor Magic V2 RSR, a special edition of the Magic V2 foldable with higher specs and a design themed around the German car brand. The Magic 6 Pro is set to retail for €1,299 (£1,099.99, around $1,407) with 12GB of RAM and 512GB of storage and be available from March 1st, while the Porsche Design Magic V2 RSR will cost €2,699 (£2,349.99, around $2,625) with 16GB of RAM and 1TB of storage and will ship on March 18th. Expect both to be available in European markets, but they’re unlikely to be officially available in the US. Since it’s 2024, naturally, a big part of Honor’s pitch for the Magic 6 Pro is its AI-powered features. For starters, Honor says it will eventually support the AI-powered eye-tracking feature it teased at Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Summit last year. Honor claims the feature will be able to spot when you’re looking at notifications on the Dynamic Island-style interface at the top of the screen (Honor calls this its “Magic Capsule”) and open the relevant app without you needing to physically tap on it. I, for one, will be very interested in seeing how Honor draws the line between a quick glance and an intentional look.

Apple Wearable Roadmap Unveils New Smart Glasses, Cameras for Ears—Report

Apple is planning new wearables in the future as revealed via its recent roadmap, unveiling its plans for new smart glasses and a set of cameras for the ears. This will center on more wearables from the Cupertino brand, expanding more of its current lineup which centers on various products like the Apple Watch series, the AirPods series (alongside the Beats), and the Vision Pro. Various reports regarding Apple's new wearables are gaining traction, with one centering on a smart ring that may be an upcoming rival to that of Samsung's. Apple Wearable Roadmap: Smart Glasses and Cameras for Ears The latest Power On Newsletter via Bloomberg's Mark Gurman dropped a new wearable roadmap that Apple plans to bring to the world in the future, highlighting two devices now. This centers on AI-powered smart glasses for the eyes, and the other would be meant for the ears, featuring wearable cameras that can record happenings in a first-person point-of-view (POV) perspective. Gurman regarded these concept devices to be under an "exploratory phase" within Apple which highlights the wearable plans of the company. The smart glasses would be "AirPods stand-ins" but would not be like the Vision Pro with its high-quality display, but would be similar to Meta's Ray-Bans that offers an AI assistant and cameras. New Wearables from Apple to Expand More of Its Lineup On the other hand, the one for the ears would be AirPods equipped with low-res cameras, and according to The Verge, is something that Apple was reportedly developing last year under the B798 codename. This device would be the same size as current AirPods, but it will also have AI capabilities that may help users with their daily activities. Apple's Wearable: Current Devices and Plans One of the top-known things about Apple is how it goes its pace, centering on new developments when the company feels that it is ready, with only several wearables available from its current offers. One of the best-known wearables of the company is the Apple Watch lineup, now on the Series 9 and Ultra 2, alongside the second generation SE which it introduced last 2022. There is also the iconic AirPods lineup which is now on the Generation 3, the AirPods Pro 2, and the AirPods Max which is still the original version in the present. Its most recent take on wearables is the Vision Pro, best known for the wide regard for the mixed-reality headset which features the best of both augmented and virtual reality. Speculations also went wild regarding Apple's take on a smart ring, a device that will be both for health tracking and allegedly, an accessory for its AR experiences available. However, this recent report highlights more of Apple's massive wearable business expansion that will feature two new devices, with smart glasses of unknown capabilities and wearable cameras for the ears. ...

Earth has extra moons, and they may hold the secrets of our solar system's past

Earth's closest cosmic companions, known as 'minimoons' or 'quasi-moons', could hold the secrets to the history of our early solar system. The solar system holds many secrets that scientists are still trying to unravel. To help shed light on these mysteries, researchers are turning to space rocks of all kinds that may hold clues to the lost story of our solar system's past. This approach is already bearing fruit: In October 2023, NASA's OSIRIS REx mission discovered water and carbon — two of the precursors for life on Earth — on the 4.5 billion-year-old asteroid Bennu. Among the thousands of asteroids swarming near Earth’s orbit, minimoons — tiny cosmic bodies, whose orbits are partially governed by Earth and partially by other solar system bodies — may be prime candidates for learning about the origins of the solar system, said Richard Binzel, a professor of planetary sciences at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. "[Minimoons] probably have had a bit of a pinball experience in the inner solar system, being ricocheted around and tugged on by the different planets," Binzel told Live Science. "They finally found themselves in a way that they got tugged into a somewhat circular orbit near the Earth." ...

No, electric vehicle sales aren’t dropping. Here’s what’s really going on

CNN — Tesla has been slashing prices. Ford just cut the price of its Mustang Mach-E, too, plus it cut back production of its electric pickup. And General Motors is thinking about bringing back plug-in hybrids, possibly taking a step back from GM’s earlier commitment to shifting straight to pure EVs. And now the EPA is considering slowing down requirements for automakers to sell more electric vehicles, dialing back what had been aggressive plans to move away from gas powered cars and SUVs. You’d be forgiven for thinking the American market for EVs is collapsing. But in the last quarter of 2023, EV sales were up 40% from the same quarter a year before, according to Cox Automotive. In fact, EV sales in the United States hit a record last year, topping 1 million for the first time. Still there is a troubling gap between expectations and reality. Bloomberg New Energy Finance, for instance, had projected sales of 1.7 million plug-in vehicles in 2023, but only 1.46 million ultimately sold. (BNEF’s figures include plug-in hybrids, but the large majority are fully electric vehicles.) The trend line isn’t slanting upward as sharply as many had predicted so the industry is lowering future estimates. Industry experts cite a number of reasons for this, including vehicle price, lack of charging capacity and confusing tax credit rules. High prices Most electric vehicles currently on sale in America are on the more expensive side of the automotive market. “Between $50,000 and $60,000 now we get Kia and we get Cadillac,” said Tyson Jominy, an industry analyst with J.D. Power, referring to the Kia EV9 and Cadillac Lyriq electric vehicles. “Those two don’t normally face each other.” Besides being too expensive for the average buyer, selection is limited in terms of body style, said Corey Cantor, an industry analyst with Bloomberg New Energy Finance. The vast majority are relatively expensive SUVs, and there are few sedans or compact cars for customers who want something different. The target customer is also changing as selling more EVs means reaching outside a core of knowledgable EV enthusiasts. “As the COVID shock retreated, we learned that as you scale EVs to 5,000, to 7,000 units a month and you move into the early majority customer, they are not willing to pay a significant premium for EVs,” Ford chief executive Jim Farley. “This is a huge moment for us.” This is why Ford recently cut prices for the Mach-E SUV and why Farley created a team to work on a less expensive EV engineering platform that will be the basis for future models. Charging needed Then there’s the continued lack of public charging. The National Renewable Energy Laboratory, part of the US Department of Energy, estimates that the US will need 182,000 fast chargers for electric vehicles by 2030. There are currently fewer than 40,000, according to the DOE, with about a quarter of those in California. ...

Barbie’s hot pink flip phone is coming to the real world this summer

If you were wondering when brands will finally stop trying to cash in on the Barbie craze, the answer is, somehow, not yet. HMD (or Human Mobile Devices), which has been making Nokia phones for the past few years, announced for MWC that it’s partnered with Mattel to release an official Barbie Flip Phone this summer. It’ll be pink, obviously, with a dash of “sparkle.” Aesthetically, it sounds a lot like the original hot pink Motorola Razr of the aughts. But while that phone eventually got rebooted as a smartphone for the era of modern foldables, the Barbie phone is keeping things pretty basic. It’ll be a feature phone, not a smartphone, with HMD marketing it as an accessory geared toward “style, nostalgia and a much-needed digital detox.” HMD hasn’t revealed much else about it yet, like pricing or actual photos, but the company says it plans to unveil the Barbie Flip Phone at MWC, so we'll likely see more of it as the week unfolds. Most people may not be ready to ditch their smartphones entirely just yet, but if you’re looking for a burner, this is probably one of the cutest you could get. ...

Brightest and fastest-growing: astronomers identify record-breaking quasar

Using the European Southern Observatory’s (ESO) Very Large Telescope (VLT), astronomers have characterised a bright quasar, finding it to be not only the brightest of its kind, but also the most luminous object ever observed. Quasars are the bright cores of distant galaxies and they are powered by supermassive black holes. The black hole in this record-breaking quasar is growing in mass by the equivalent of one Sun per day, making it the fastest-growing black hole to date. The black holes powering quasars collect matter from their surroundings in a process so energetic that it emits vast amounts of light. So much so that quasars are some of the brightest objects in our sky, meaning even distant ones are visible from Earth. As a general rule, the most luminous quasars indicate the fastest-growing supermassive black holes. “We have discovered the fastest-growing black hole known to date. It has a mass of 17 billion Suns, and eats just over a Sun per day. This makes it the most luminous object in the known Universe,” says Christian Wolf, an astronomer at the Australian National University (ANU) and lead author of the study published today in Nature Astronomy. The quasar, called J0529-4351, is so far away from Earth that its light took over 12 billion years to reach us. The matter being pulled in toward this black hole, in the form of a disc, emits so much energy that J0529-4351 is over 500 trillion times more luminous than the Sun [1]. “All this light comes from a hot accretion disc that measures seven light-years in diameter — this must be the largest accretion disc in the Universe," says ANU PhD student and co-author Samuel Lai. Seven light-years is about 15 000 times the distance from the Sun to the orbit of Neptune. And, remarkably, this record-breaking quasar was hiding in plain sight. “It is a surprise that it has remained unknown until today, when we already know about a million less impressive quasars. It has literally been staring us in the face until now,” says co-author Christopher Onken, an astronomer at ANU. He added that this object showed up in images from the ESO Schmidt Southern Sky Survey dating back to 1980, but it was not recognised as a quasar until decades later. Finding quasars requires precise observational data from large areas of the sky. The resulting datasets are so large, researchers often use machine-learning models to analyse them and tell quasars apart from other celestial objects. However, these models are trained on existing data, which limits the potential candidates to objects similar to those already known. If a new quasar is more luminous than any other previously observed, the programme might reject it and classify it instead as a star not too distant from Earth. ...

The Y Chromosome Is Vanishing. A New Sex Gene May Be The Future of Men.

The sex of human and other mammal babies is decided by a male-determining gene on the Y chromosome. But the human Y chromosome is degenerating and may disappear in a few million years, leading to our extinction unless we evolve a new sex gene. The good news is two branches of rodents have already lost their Y chromosome and have lived to tell the tale. A recent paper in Proceedings of the National Academy of Science shows how the spiny rat has evolved a new male-determining gene. How the Y chromosome determines human sex In humans, as in other mammals, females have two X chromosomes and males have a single X and a puny little chromosome called Y. The names have nothing to do with their shape; the X stood for 'unknown'. The X contains about 900 genes that do all sorts of jobs unrelated to sex. But the Y contains few genes (about 55) and a lot of non-coding DNA – simple repetitive DNA that doesn't seem to do anything. But the Y chromosome packs a punch because it contains an all-important gene that kick-starts male development in the embryo. At about 12 weeks after conception, this master gene switches on others that regulate the development of a testis. The embryonic testis makes male hormones (testosterone and its derivatives), which ensures the baby develops as a boy. This master sex gene was identified as SRY (sex region on the Y) in 1990. It works by triggering a genetic pathway starting with a gene called SOX9 which is key for male determination in all vertebrates, although it does not lie on sex chromosomes. The disappearing Y Most mammals have an X and Y chromosome similar to ours; an X with lots of genes, and a Y with SRY plus a few others. This system comes with problems because of the unequal dosage of X genes in males and females. How did such a weird system evolve? The surprising finding is that Australia's platypus has completely different sex chromosomes, more like those of birds. In platypus, the XY pair is just an ordinary chromosome, with two equal members. This suggests the mammal X and Y were an ordinary pair of chromosomes not that long ago. In turn, this must mean the Y chromosome has lost 900–55 active genes over the 166 million years that humans and platypus have been evolving separately. That's a loss of about five genes per million years. At this rate, the last 55 genes will be gone in 11 million years. Our claim of the imminent demise of the human Y created a furore, and to this day there are claims and counterclaims about the expected lifetime of our Y chromosome – estimates between infinity and a few thousand years. Rodents with no Y chromosome The good news is we know of two rodent lineages that have already lost their Y chromosome – and are still surviving. The mole voles of eastern Europe and the spiny rats of Japan each boast some species in which the Y chromosome, and SRY, have completely disappeared. The X chromosome remains, in a single or double dose in both sexes.

Apple says iPhone 15 battery lifespan is now doubled — but there’s a catch

Recently there was a rare occurrence in the world of smartphones as it appears that the battery lifespan of the iPhone 15 is actually better than was originally claimed by Apple. It is rare for details about a device to change after it has already been released, and even more so for it to be a particularly drastic change. However, it seems that the battery lifespan of the iPhone 15 is more than double what was originally claimed, although Apple has yet to mention what has caused this change to occur. According to a report from 9to5Mac, Apple has retested the batteries in the iPhone 15 and the iPhone 15 Pro and now claims that they can maintain at least 80 percent of their original capacity for 1,000 charging cycles, which is more than double the 500 cycles that they originally claimed. There is currently no mention if the change has happened for every model in the iPhone 15 lineup. When we tested the iPhone 15 series batteries we found them all to be relatively very long-lasting with both the iPhone 15 Plus and iPhone 15 Pro Max appearing in our best phone battery life list. When Apple mentions charging cycles they mean charging the phone up to 100% and then letting it naturally wear down to 0%. Batteries naturally decay over time and lose the amount of charge they can hold, despite saying 100% on the phone. This means that, over time, the phone won’t be able to run for as long. However, battery testing can be difficult and it is rare to get a concrete answer as many varying factors can change the result. The main question currently is how this occurred and why. Apple has yet to comment so we do not know if the battery is simply better than was originally stated, or if Apple has simply changed how it tests its batteries. Apple has had some issues over battery longevity. For instance, iPhone 14 users found their phones losing battery health after less than a year of use, and then there's the infamous “Batterygate” controversy that was settled this year. However, this is still great news for those who like to keep their iPhones for as long as possible before upgrading. ...

Bambu Lab is recalling every A1 3D printer — don’t use them until you read this



Bambu Lab is officially recalling all A1 3D printers (not counting the A1 Mini). The company “strongly” urges owners to stop using it for safety reasons after it was alerted to “unstable temperature readings” that it first traced to a faulty heatbed cable last week, as reported by Tom’s Hardware. After further investigation, Bambu says “less than 0.1% of all the A1 printers sold” are affected by the problem, but it can’t say with 100 percent certainty what the cause is, so it’s offering a full refund to any A1 owner who wants it. The company isn’t recalling any other printers in its lineup, so if you own an X1 series, P1 series, or the A1 Mini that our own Sean Hollister called “almost the easy button” of printers. Here’s a TL;DR of what’s going on: Last week, Bambu Lab found that the design of the A1 3D printer’s heatbad cable could lead to kinks and possible short circuits. This week, it says there may be a separate issue causing heat problems in some printers. In the interest of safety, the company is recalling all A1 3D printers that it has sold, and Micro Center is no longer selling them — Bambu is offering full refunds, $80 vouchers for choosing a replacement, or a $120 voucher for its store if you choose to fix it yourself with free repair parts. And some more detail: The company wrote last week that it hadn’t properly designed the heatbed cable’s strain relief — the fatter part of the cable meant to prevent kinking where it connects — making it too easy to damage and possibly short circuit. But Bambu now believes another, yet unknown issue could be at play for some printers, leading it to its decision to recall the A1. Bambu Lab says that it will take up to 15 business days to process each refund, but if you want to apply the refund to one of its other printers instead, it will give you an $80 voucher to use towards that purchase — or towards a redesigned A1 printer when they’re available “around May.” Alternatively, you can choose to repair the A1 yourself when new heatbeds are ready around the end of March and receive a $120 voucher to use for anything in Bambu’s online store (provided self-repair is legal in your country). Bambu uploaded a video of the replacement process and detailed it in a written tutorial to help you decide if you’re comfortable going the DIY route.

iPhone 15 Pro Max Beats The Galaxy S24 By The Skin Of Its Teeth In The Latest Competitive Speed Test



The Galaxy S24 Ultra might have been able to last longer than the iPhone 15 Pro Max in a previous battery drain test, but Apple’s top-end flagship retains its title of being the speed test king by beating Samsung’s latest and greatest flagship. However, both handsets were ‘neck and neck’ against one another, and it could have been anyone’s day. Galaxy S24 Ultra narrowly misses victory against the iPhone 15 Pro Max by barely three seconds The iPhone 15 Pro Max and Galaxy S24 Ultra represent the very best in flagship smartphone technology, with PhoneBuff returning with a speed test between the two premium competitors. Even with Samsung limiting its titanium-touting titan to just 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM, it appears that it made some software improvements to its OneUI because at no point does the handset show any sign of stutter or slowing down as it maintained its pace with the iPhone 15 Pro Max. RELATED STORY Galaxy S24 Ultra Uses An Inferior Titanium Variant Compared To The Grade 5 That Apple Employed Last Year, Reveals New Teardown Unfortunately, some apps are more optimized on iOS than they are on Android, so it is unfair to lay blame on Samsung when it not only used a slightly powerful version of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 to compete with the iPhone 15 Pro Max’s A17 Pro but also houses other high-end specifications to complete the package. Similar to the first lap, the Galaxy S24 Ultra managed to stay locked with its latest rival in the second lap, and at no stage does the flagship have to re-open any app, showing Samsung has improved memory management here. Unfortunately, there can be only one winner, and on this occasion, it was the iPhone 15 Pro Max, which finished with a total time of 2 minutes and 54 seconds, with the Galaxy S24 Ultra in close pursuit, finishing the same test with a time of 2 minutes and 57 seconds. While there will be continuous rants from the Android camp, there is a silver lining too. Earlier, we reported about an internal storage benchmark comparison performed between the two smartphones, with the Galaxy S24 Ultra featuring internal memory that was up to 75 percent faster than the iPhone 15 Pro Max, even though the latter uses NVMe onboard storage, so there is something to cheer about.
