• Apple Will Refund Apple One Customers With Duplicate Apple Subscriptions

    Now that Apple One is live, we’re sure that some of you might have questions about the service, like what if you’re already subscribed to an existing Apple service? Will you continue being subscribed to both services even if it might be a duplicate service inside the Apple One package?

    According to the folks at iPhone in Canada, they have confirmed that Apple will actually refund customers if they’re already subscribed to a duplicate service. So for example, if you purchased a year’s subscription to Apple Music and you decide to hop on board the Apple One subscription which already includes Apple Music, it seems that Apple will issue a pro-rated refund on your subscription.

    What this means is that Apple will refund you the remaining months that you have left in the subscription, and the amount refunded will be based on the cost divided by the total number

  • Deep Neural Networks Are Helping Decipher How Brains Work

    In the winter of 2011, Daniel Yamins, a postdoctoral researcher in computational neuroscience at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, would at times toil past midnight on his machine vision project. He was painstakingly designing a system that could recognize objects in pictures, regardless of variations in size, position, and other properties—something that humans do with ease. The system was a deep neural network, a type of computational device inspired by the neurological wiring of living brains.

    “I remember very distinctly the time when we found a neural network that actually solved the task,” he said. It was 2 am, a tad too early to wake up his adviser, James DiCarlo,

  • The Raspberry Pi 400 is a compact keyboard with a built-in computer

    The Raspberry Pi Foundation has announced the Raspberry Pi 400, a compact keyboard with an ARM-based computer built in. Just plug it into a TV or monitor using one of its two micro HDMI ports, insert a microSD card, attach a power cord and mouse, and you’ve got yourself a basic computer for day-to-day tasks, coding, or media playback. It’s available starting today as a standalone machine for $70 or in a bundle including a mouse, power supply, microSD card, HDMI cable, and beginner’s guide for $100.

    The hope is the Pi 400’s form factor, plus these optional bundled items, makes it more approachable and user-friendly. That’s important when you’re selling an affordable computer, and it’s especially important when you’re selling an accessible device to help children learn to code. It looks more like a piece of consumer electronics than the basis for a DIY project.

  • iPhone 13 Could Come With 1TB Of Storage

    Apple’s iPhone storage currently caps out at 512GB and there is no way to expand on it as the iPhones do not support storage expansion via microSD cards like some Android phones do.  However, for those who feel that 512GB is still not enough, you might want to keep an eye out for the iPhone 13.

    This is because according to Jon Prosser, he claims that Apple could introduce a 1TB model to its iPhone lineup. Prosser does not mention which models will be getting the 1TB upgrade, but given that the iPhone 12 was just announced, it’s probably safe to assume that he’s talking about the 2021 models, which presumably will be known as the iPhone 13.

    Given that smartphone cameras these days are becoming increasingly capable and can take higher-resolution photos, HDR photos, 4K video, and so on, storage will definitely fill up pretty fast for those who

  • The Intersection Of Know-how And Humanity

    Biotechnology is a large space and could be defined generally as the applying of organisms, biomaterials, and methods or processes in manufacturing and production. A particular characteristic of this applied science program is its project-based method, with independently-designed microbiology projects that may improve your drawback-fixing and analysis expertise. Dr. R. Colwell, Director, US Nationwide Basis at a US-EC Biotech assembly in 2003 mentioned: “If we may weave a Flag of Biotechnology, some say, it could feature three colours: crimson for medical purposes, green for agricultural and white for industrial. In actual fact this flag may accrue much more colours over time as environmental and marine biotech and different purposes add their stripes’.

    Industrial biotechnology additionally works to make manufacturing processes more efficient for industries akin to textiles, paper and pulp, and specialty chemical compounds. 1. Foods and elements made from currently grown GE crops are suitable for eating That’s the …
