• Neuralink Is Impressive Tech, Wrapped in Musk Hype

    Musk didn’t seem to think this was essential. “A lot of people think, ‘I couldn’t possibly work at Neuralink because I don’t know anything about how brains work,’” he said at last Friday’s demo. “Well, that’s OK. You can learn. But we need software engineering, we need mechanical engineering, electrical engineering … chip design, robotics, and all the things a company needs to work.”

    At some point, someone is going to have to know something about how brains work. The Neuralink picks up electrical signals—the “spikes” or “action potentials” that run the length of neurons when they’re activated, and signal the squirting of neurotransmitter chemicals across synapses. But some of what the team said seemed to imply that given enough of those signals, they’d be able to interpolate actual thoughts or memories. Nobody’s really sure that’s true. In fact, it’s possible (though unlikely) that the electricity, the movement of charged

  • Read Epic’s new, full argument why a court should force Apple to reinstate Fortnite

    Shortly before midnight on the Friday before Labor Day weekend — we’re curious about the timing — Epic Games pushed the button on its next legal action against Apple’s ban on the immensely popular Fortnite.

    There was no question that Epic would file for a preliminary injunction against Apple in an attempt to force the iPhone maker to bring Fortnite back to the App Store — hearings were already scheduled for September 28th. But now, you can read the company’s full argument (here’s a PDF; it’s also embedded below) and decide whether you think Judge Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers is likely to be swayed.

    You may remember that Judge Rogers was already unwilling to issue a temporary restraining order against Apple to protect Epic’s games, partly because Epic hadn’t proven it had actually been harmed, and partly because the judge felt that Epic “strategically chose to breach its

  • Shailene Woodley’s ‘Adrift’ is a romantic survival drama worth your time

    If you were in your tweens, teens, or 20s during the early 2010s, you probably remember the young adult dystopian movie boom. Book-to-film adaptions like The Maze Runner, The Fifth Wave, and The Giver were all hitting the big screen within the same few years, and while a select few of them were positively received, like The Hunger Games, many other missed the mark (I’m looking at you, Divergent).

    Adrift, released in 2018, is far from a teen dystopian adventure. There is no “chosen one,” there are no only weirdly absent parents, and there is no love triangle. But there is Shailene Woodley and Sam Claflin – two stars whose careers gained more attention after they appeared in a couple of the aforementioned mega teen franchises.

    Nothing spotlights her nuanced and authentic approach to acting quite as well as Adrift.

    Claflin was introduced as Finnick
