Airbnb sues New York over 'government overreach'

Top Stories - Fri, 08/24/2018 - 20:10

Airbnb sued the city of New York on Friday, denouncing as "an extraordinary act of government overreach" a new law forcing home-sharing platforms to disclose data about hosts. It was a dramatic escalation in the battle between the $30 billion company and authorities in America's most populous city, amid a global backlash against "sharing economy" startups disrupting traditional industries. The law, which comes into effect on February 2, 2019, requires home-sharing platforms such as Airbnb to disclose information about hosts and imposes hefty fines for non-compliance.

Today only, get a 12-inch MacBook for as little as $700

Macworld - Fri, 08/24/2018 - 18:05

I love the 12-inch MacBook, even with its single USB-C port. It’s thin and light, even to the point that I feel like I’m typing on the desk rather than a regular laptop. If that kind of thing sounds appealing to you, you’ll be happy to know that Woot (a division of Amazon) is currently selling various certified refurbished 12-inch MacBooks from 2015 for as little as $700.

The $700 unit is the 256GB configurationRemove non-product link (and, for what it’s worth, I’m happily writing on the 2017 version of it). Unfortunately, if you want it for that price, you’ll have to be okay with getting it in gold. For a bit of comparison, similar (non-refurbished) models are going for $900 over at Amazon proper.

NASA spacecraft captures first images of the asteroid it will soon land on

Top Stories - Fri, 08/24/2018 - 16:46

A NASA probe speeding through the solar system has captured its first image of the asteroid Bennu, which the space agency will try to land on in 2020. Once that happens, the spacecraft OSIRIS-REx is designed to collect up to 4.4 pounds of ancient space rock, seal the minerals in a capsule, and blast the capsule back to Earth. If all goes as planned, the canister will drop down into the Utah desert in 2023.  SEE ALSO: A 12-mile, underground lake may have been found on Mars. What could live there? The space probe captured its first image of Bennu from 1.4 million miles away, which is pretty close as far as space distances go (this is about six times the distance between the Earth and moon). But as shown below, the asteroid is still too distant to make out any features or details. It looks like a fuzzy, spinning white dot. Asteroid Bennu speeds through space.Image: nasaIn early December, the probe will begin to orbit quite close to the small asteroid, 4.5 miles (7 kilometers) from the surface. As the craft slowly circles Bennu at just 0.1 mph, NASA scientists will map its rocky surface, scouring the terrain for a suitable landing spot Why is NASA visiting this small asteroid? Compared to many of the 780,000 known asteroids in our solar system, Bennu is pretty small. But it's quite interesting.  For one, Bennu might contain valuable resources that can be used for future deep space exploration, Dante Lauretta, the OSIRIS-REx principal investigator at the University of Arizona, Tucson, said in a press call.  A conception of the probe collecting samples from BennuImage: nasaLauretta is interested in whether Bennu holds clay deposits, because embedded in clay is water. And water is composed of hydrogen and oxygen, two necessary components for rocket fuel.  One day, perhaps, Bennu may serve as a "fuel depot" in space, said Lauretta. Bennu is also believed to be a well-preserved, ancient asteroid, containing cosmic fragments older than our solar system. Understanding how Bennu formed, and the mish-mash of space materials it's made of, will likely improve astronomers' understanding of how the solar system came to be some four billion years ago. Bennu, at center, compared in size to other solar system asteroidsImage: nasaFinally, Bennu has the slight potential to travel dangerously close to Earth in 2175 and 2195.  "Bennu is one of the ones we are watching," said Lauretta, noting that it has a 1 in 2,700 chance of coming too close for comfort.  Knowing what Bennu is composed of gives NASA better information about how to potentially deflect the large space rock, should it ever veer toward our humble blue planet.  WATCH: Ever wonder how the universe might end?
