Ford to invest $740 million in Detroit train station, city development project

Top Stories - Tue, 08/14/2018 - 19:11

Ford aims to turn the building into a campus of offices for up to 5,000 tech workers and software engineers focused on self-driving vehicles and ancillary technologies and services. The second largest U.S. automaker based in Dearborn, Michigan, about 10 miles from Detroit, announced the project in June, but had not previously disclosed costs until a community meeting on Tuesday. The company said Tuesday in a statement it is "working with federal, state and local economic development groups and officials, seeking at least $250 million in tax or other incentives to support the development of the five Corktown sites Ford has purchased." Ford said total investment in the development of the train station and developing 45 acres of vacant land will cost approximately $740 million over the next four years.

Top Stories - Tue, 08/14/2018 - 18:54

The defence has rested its case in the trial of Paul Manafort, former 2016 campaign manager for Donald Trump, clearing the way for the jury to hear closing arguments. Mr Manafort’s trial on several counts of tax evasion and bank fraud is almost over after his legal team did not call any witnesses to the stand in the federal court in Alexandria, Virginia. The former foreign political agent decided not to testify in what is the first trial related to the FBI investigation, led by special counsel Robert Mueller, of alleged collusion between Mr Trump’s 2016 campaign team and Russian officials.

Freed in Turkey before spy trial, Greek soldiers await flight home

Top Stories - Tue, 08/14/2018 - 16:53

Two Greek soldiers facing espionage charges in Turkey are due to fly home early on Wednesday after a provincial court released them, in a ruling Athens said would help to improve strained ties between the two NATO allies. The soldiers crossed into Turkey in March, in what Greece said was an accident while they were following the trail of suspected illegal migrants. The same court ruled for their release on Tuesday after they said in a defense statement they had crossed the border by mistake, state news agency Anadolu said.

Wisconsin, Minnesota primaries to gauge strength of opposition to Trump

Top Stories - Tue, 08/14/2018 - 16:01

Voters were going to the polls in those states for party primaries, and Democrats will have a chance to show they can mobilize voters for Nov. 6’s congressional elections and perhaps the 2020 presidential race as well. Trump was the first Republican presidential candidate to win Wisconsin in 32 years, and he narrowly lost to Democrat Hillary Clinton in Minnesota. Trump’s consistently low approval ratings and his trade policies, however, may have given Democrats renewed life.

Owl Car Cam review: 24-hour surveillance redefines the dash cam

Macworld - Tue, 08/14/2018 - 14:30

Owl’s Car Cam is ground-breaking and uniquely capable, and it sports a wonderfully slick design that cherry-picks the best bits from the competition—and adds some soon-to-be-copied tricks of its own. But at $349, it’s also one of the most expensive dash cams I’ve ever tested, and it has some caveats. It currently depends upon the iPhone (6 or greater, iOS 11), as well as, to some extent, proximity to your vehicle. It’s also currently missing some key features that other, less expensive dash cams we've reviewed already have.

If Apple wants to properly add Pencil support to the iPhone, it needs to copy the Galaxy Note 9

Macworld - Tue, 08/14/2018 - 14:00

We’re only about a month away from the biggest tech event of the year, and apparently there are still some surprises left to spoil. This time the news comes from Trendforce, a little-known analysis company that is often spot on with its sales predications but generally stays away from rumors. In a note to clients, Trendforce dropped two big nuggets about the upcoming new iPhones, both aimed at competing with Samsung’s Galaxy Note 9.

According to sources, Apple will differentiate the two OLED iPhone models from the LCD one by more than just the screen and rear camera. We already expect the new phones to come in 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch sizes, but Apple will apparently bump the storage as well, offering a whopping 512GB as a new high-end option. That’s the same as Samsung’s new high-end Galaxy Note 9, which sells for $1,249.
