• Your Amazon Prime Videos Don’t Actually Belong To You

    Aside from being able to stream movies digitally, companies have also allowed users to purchase digital copies of movies, but therein lies an interesting legal question – do these digital downloads mean that you own them? It’s like if you were to buy a physical copy of a movie on DVD or Blu-ray, you would own that particular copy (to a certain extent).

    However, according to Amazon’s argument, it seems that movies purchased through its Prime Video platform are actually not owned by the customer. This stems from a lawsuit in which a certain Amanda Caudel sued Amazon for what she alleges is unfair competition and false advertising, where she also claims that Amazon “secretly reserves the right” to end consumers’ access to content purchased through its Prime Video service.

    Amazon, on the other hand, argued that movies purchased through Prime Video are actually not owned by the customer, and

  • A New Way to Plug a Human Brain into a Computer: via Veins

    Much more ambitious brain-computer interfaces and neural prosthetics have been in the news lately. Last month, Elon Musk’s company Neuralink demonstrated a wireless BCI with more than a thousand flexible electrodes, designed to be inserted directly into a brain by a specialized robot surgeon. (The company has so far only shown short-term use in pigs.) Inserting electrodes is tricky; while it’s true that brain surgery isn’t exactly rocket science, it has risks whether the surgeon is a robot or not. Even flexible, thin electrodes like those that Neuralink demonstrated are invasive enough that the brain tries to defend against them, coating them with glial cells that reduce their ability to conduct the electrical impulses they’re looking for. And while implanted electrodes like those of the more commonly used “Utah array” can get clear signals from individual neurons, understanding what those signals mean is still science in progress. Plus, the brain

  • Eve’s light strip is first to support HomeKit’s color-changing adaptive lighting

    Eve’s smart light strip can now adjust its colors automatically throughout the course of the day thanks to iOS 14’s new Adaptive Lighting feature, the company announced. The light strip is the first product to support the new Apple HomeKit feature, according to Eve, but first requires a firmware update that owners can perform via the Eve app.

    Adaptive Lighting is a new HomeKit feature introduced this year which allows compatible smart bulbs to adapt their colors to the time of day, showing warmer hues in the morning and evenings, or cooler ones at midday. Other manufacturers also appear to be working to support the feature, with iphone-ticker reporting (via MacRumors) earlier this month that Philips Hue beta testers in Germany were able to test the feature with their Hue smart bulbs.

    Along with the light strip, Eve says its Eve Cam is also getting a couple of

  • Biotechnology Thrives In India

    The euphoria of graduation day has worn off. These processes also were included in early fermentation of beer 10 These processes had been launched in early Mesopotamia , Egypt , China and India , and still use the same fundamental biological methods. In brewing , malted grains (containing enzymes ) convert starch from grains into sugar and then including particular yeasts to supply beer. In this course of, carbohydrates within the grains broke down into alcohols, corresponding to ethanol. Later, different cultures produced the method of lactic acid fermentation , which produced other preserved foods, reminiscent of soy sauce Fermentation was additionally used in this time interval to produce leavened bread Though the method of fermentation was not totally understood until Louis Pasteur ‘s work in 1857, it’s still the first use of biotechnology to transform a food supply into one other type.
