Lyft is giving out scholarships for a new self-driving car program

TwitterFacebook

Lyft wants to create a world filled with self-driving cars, so the ride-hailing company will help the next generation of developers get the education they need to build it.

Online education platform Udacity is rolling out a new Lyft-sponsored “Intro to Self-Driving Cars” Nanodegree program. The four-month course will cost $800 — but Lyft will award full scholarships to 400 qualified students to study topics like machine learning, object-oriented programming, and probabilistic robotics. 

The scholarships will be used to promote diversity within the applicant pool. Lyft and Udacity will aim to award students from communities that are “underrepresented in technology in the US,” according to a blog post about the program.  Read more…

Pics of Google’s Pixel 2 phones just leaked, and they look pretty ‘meh’

TwitterFacebook

We’re just a couple weeks away from Google’s big Pixel 2 event so, naturally, the leaks have kicked into high gear.

Leaked images of the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL appeared on the Android blog DroidLife, which show Google’s new Pixel lineup in fresh colors, including “Kinda Blue” and “Just Black.” The Pixel 2 will start at $649 and the Pixel 2 XL at $849, according to the site.

They report the smaller Pixel 2 will come in three, not-so-subtly-named color variations, Clearly White, Just Black, and Kinda Blue. Other than the colors, the backside of the handset, made by HTC, looks a lot like last year’s Pixel.   Read more…

Google may have accidentally leaked details about its Pixel 2

TwitterFacebook

Google may have accidentally let us in on some details about the Pixel 2 a little early.

Code buried within the Google app has revealed what appears to be a series of features slated for the Pixel 2, including the so-called “squeezable frame” and new ways to use the company’s Assistant feature. 

Some of the new details, which were first reported by 9to5Google, aren’t entirely new to those who have been paying attention to the Pixel 2 rumor mill, but the fact that signs of them were found in Google’s own app makes the features much more likely to appear in the phone. Read more…

Gmail is rolling out a new update that will (finally) turn contact info into links in emails

TwitterFacebook

Gmail is finally getting with the times.

For its latest update, the email service is making a long-awaited improvement by turning key information in emails — such as addresses, phone numbers, and email addresses — into clickable links.

In a blog post shared on Monday, Google explained that both Gmail and Inbox by Gmail on Android, iOS, and the web will start detecting and converting the above information into hyperlinks. The feature’s full roll-out is expected to take up to three days.
