Target says it plans to acquire grocery delivery platform Shipt for $550M in cash and will run it as independent unit; Shipt has 170 staff and has raised $65M

Patreon apologizes for ‘overstepping’ on fees that everyone hated

Patreon CEO Jack Conte says the company will “press pause” on planned change to service fee for each pledge, set to start Dec. 18, after uproar from creators

Patreon CEO: Creators and Patrons,
We’ve heard you loud and clear. We’re not going to rollout the changes to our payments system that we announced last week. We still have to fix the problems that those changes addressed, but we’re going to fix them in a different way, and we’re going to work with you to come up with the specifics, as we should have done the first time around. Many of you lost patrons, and you lost income. No apology will make up for that, but nevertheless, I’m sorry. It is our core belief that you should own the relationships with your fans. These are your businesses, and they are your fans.
I’ve spent hours and hours on the phone with creators, and so has the Patreon team. Your feedback has been crystal clear:
The new payments system disproportionately impacted $1 – $2 patrons. We have to build a better system for them.
Aggregation is highly-valued, and we underestimated that.
Fundamentally, creators should own the business decisions with their fans, not Patreon. We overstepped our bounds and injected ourselves into that relationship, against our core belief as a business.
We recognize that we need to be better at involving you more deeply and earlier in these kinds of decisions and product changes. Additionally, we need to give you a more flexible product and platform to allow you to own the way you run your memberships.
I know it will take a long time for us to earn back your trust. But we are utterly devoted to your success and to getting you sustainable, reliable income for being a creator. We will work harder than ever to build you tools, functionality, and income, and our team won’t rest until Patreon is making that happen.
If you haven’t sent us a note yet, or if you don’t see your concerns listed above, please leave us your feedback here.
Thanks for continuing to create. We are nothing without you, and we know that.

Microsoft announces new AI-powered search features for Bing

Microsoft updates Bing with improved conversational search, Intelligent Image Search, ability to better surface different viewpoints, Reddit partnership, more  

Microsoft: Think back to the early days of the Internet. Chances are, you used a search engine like you might previously have used a phone book: To find a specific piece of information, such as a website, address or phone number.
Technology has changed significantly in the years since, and so have our expectations for it. These days, people want more intelligent answers: Maybe they’d like to gather the pros and cons of a certain exercise plan or figure out whether the latest Marvel movie is worth seeing. They might even turn to their favorite search tool with only the vaguest of requests, such as, “I’m hungry.”
When people make requests like that, they don’t just want a list of websites. They might want a personalized answer, such as restaurant recommendations based on the city they are traveling in. Or they might want a variety of answers, so they can get different perspectives on a topic. They might even need help figuring out the right question to ask.
At a Microsoft event in San Francisco on Wednesday, Microsoft executives showcased a number of advances in its Bing search engine, Cortana intelligent assistant and Microsoft Office 365 productivity tools that use artificial intelligence to help people get more nuanced information and assist with more complex needs.
These offerings, which build on the progress Microsoft has made in the past year in integrating AI across its product line, are the most recent examples of how engineers and computer scientists are using AI to help people do much more than just classify information.
“AI has come a long way in the ability to find information, but making sense of that information is the real challenge,” said Kristina Behr, a partner design and planning program manager with Microsoft’s Artificial Intelligence and Research group.
Jordi Ribas, Microsoft’s corporate vice president in charge of AI products, noted that when people think of AI, they often think of robots or AI-powered vehicles. What many people don’t realize is that AI also is having a tangible, useful impact on most people’s day-to-day lives, through products like search or Office 365 that they use every day.
“AI has really been integrated into society for many years,” Ribas said. “Sometimes, people have been using AI for a long time and they don’t even realize it.”

Apple invests $390 million in maker of depth-sensing chips for iPhone X

Apple invests $390M from its $1B Advanced Manufacturing Fund in Finisar, which makes laser chips used in iPhone X and AirPods for depth and proximity sensing

Apple today announced the latest award from its $1 billion Advanced Manufacturing Fund. Finisar, a leading manufacturer of optical communications components, will receive $390 million as part of Apple’s commitment to support innovation and job creation by American manufacturers.

The award will enable Finisar to exponentially increase its R&D spending and high-volume production of vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers (VCSELs). VCSELs power some of Apple’s most popular new features, including Face ID, Animoji and Portrait mode selfies made possible with the iPhone X TrueDepth camera, as well as the proximity-sensing capabilities of AirPods.

VCSEL technology is a better performing, more compact and cost-efficient solution compared to traditional edge-emitting lasers for many emerging applications. Apple has rapidly adopted depth-sensing technology in recent years, leading to the development and production of the most advanced VCSELs used in the history of consumer electronics. In the fourth quarter of 2017, Apple will purchase 10 times more VCSEL wafers than were previously manufactured worldwide over a similar time period.

Twitter officially launches ‘threads,’ a new feature for easily posting tweetstorms

Twitter makes it easier to tweetstorm by adding a threads feature, letting you easily add linked tweets from the compose screen, rolling out in coming weeks  

Twitter: At Twitter, we have a history of studying how people use our service and then creating features to make what they’re doing easier. The Retweet, '@reply', and hashtag are examples of this. A few years ago we noticed people creatively stitching Tweets together to share more information or tell a longer story – like this. We saw this approach (which we call “threading”) as an innovative way to present a train of thought, made up of connected but individual elements.

Now, hundreds of thousands of threads are Tweeted every day! But this method of Tweeting, while effective and popular, can be tricky for some to create and it’s often tough to read or discover all the Tweets in a thread. That’s why we’re thrilled to share that we’re making it simpler to thread Tweets together, and to find threads, so it’s easier to express yourself on Twitter and stay informed.

Google launches three experimental photo apps

Google launches three new photography apps for testing experimental technologies: Storyboard, Selfissimo!, and Scrubbies; two are on iOS and two on Android

Google: Each of the world's approximately two billion smartphone owners is carrying a camera capable of capturing photos and video of a tonal richness and quality unimaginable even five years ago. Until recently, those cameras behaved mostly as optical sensors, capturing light and operating on the resulting image's pixels. The next generation of cameras, however, will have the capability to blend hardware and computer vision algorithms that operate as well on an image's semantic content, enabling radically new creative mobile photo and video applications. Today, we're launching the first installment of a series of photography appsperiments: usable and useful mobile photography experiences built on experimental technology. Our "appsperimental" approach was inspired in part by Motion Stills, an app developed by researchers at Google that converts short videos into cinemagraphs and time lapses using experimental stabilization and rendering technologies. Our appsperiments replicate this approach by building on other technologies in development at Google. They rely on object recognition, person segmentation, stylization algorithms, efficient image encoding and decoding technologies, and perhaps most importantly, fun!

Supporting Hospitality Establishments with Wireless Internet Connectivity

Travel and tourism is one of the most important sectors that contribute to economic development and employment generation in the world. According to a 2017 report by the World Travel and Tourism Council, the industry directly contributed a total of US$2.3 trillion and 109 million jobs around the world in 2016. If one were to take into consideration the sector’s non-direct contributions to the world economy, this figure would reach US$7.6 trillion, with travel and tourism activities supporting 292 million jobs globally. These figures represent a sizable 10.2% of the world’s GDP and about 1 in 10 of the total jobs around the world, respectively.

Wireless Broadband for Travel and Tourism

Given the impact of travel and tourism on the global economy, it is understandable why governments and private businesses invest heavily in systems that support this sector. Among such investments are Internet backbone networks, which allow travel and tourism businesses and workers to deliver their services efficiently and effectively.

Wireless broadband infrastructure, for instance, connect travel and tourism establishments to the internet through radio links between these establishments and their service providers’ facilities. Wireless broadband equipment that use long-range point-to-point and point-to-multipoint technologies are particularly helpful when connectivity is desired in remote tourist destinations, sparsely populated locations, or places that are isolated by challenging terrains. Because such equipment don’t require trenching or laying out miles and miles of cables and posts, they are also more cost-effective and can be more easily provisioned, maintained, and repaired.

Wi-Fi for Hotels and Hospitality Businesses

At the forefront of the travel and tourism industry are hotels, hostels, and other hospitality establishments. These facilities strive to create Wi-Fi solutions that will prove to be reliable no matter the challenges in terms of density, activity, or physical topography. After all, reliable Wi-Fi connectivity is part of the total guest experience, and it is equally important for many hospitality staff members to have easy access to the Internet in order to fulfill their duties. These Wi-Fi equipment are responsible for extending the reach of last-mile broadband connection, whether it is provisioned by wireless broadband or wireline broadband service providers.

Typically, hotels and other hospitality establishments need equipment that can perform under everyday conditions as well as when special events are in place. After all, guests these days want the most robust, most secure, and most reliable Wi-Fi connectivity possible.

Guests also don’t just want Internet connection in their rooms; they also want it when they are enjoying a cocktail at the bar, when they are spending their day at the poolside, when they are having dinner in the hotel’s in-house restaurant, or when they are attending a symposium at the hotel’s conference hall.

When hospitality establishments have high-quality Wi-Fi solutions in place, they can have confidence that their connectivity will rise to any occasion. This also gives them the opportunity to assert their reputation for providing quality guest services.

Comprehensive Connectivity Solutions

Wireless broadband internet and Wi-Fi solutions work together to elevate the overall guest experience and improve the quality of services provided by hotels and other hospitality establishments. As previously mentioned, the guests themselves can be afforded Wi-Fi connectivity in the different areas of the facility, including guest rooms, meeting areas, and the outdoors. These, in turn, can be supported by a diverse portfolio of field-proven wireless broadband equipment that are not only affordable but also very reliable. These include licensed microwave backhaul and wireless backhaul transport equipment. Other examples of services that are useful in hospitality environments and can be supported by wireless internet connectivity include cloud management technologies and video surveillance networks.

Hotels and other hospitality establishments are at the vanguard of the travel and tourism industry. With the ever-growing number of travelers the world over, it makes sense for businesses and allied government institutions to capitalize on this growth and invest more in technologies that will make Internet connectivity more accessible to tourists and business travelers.
