But this is only the beginning: miniaturization is inevitable and at some point these devices could really be available to everyone.

Are Amazon drones ready to make deliveries? Here they are, the drones that will bring us packages at home instead of couriers: Amazon presented the latest version of Prime Air. The novelties are substantial: vertical take-off and landing, autonomy in flight and super-safe orientation system. However, the official launch does not have a precise date, and there are a number of obstacles that are more administrative than technical.
A robot carrier technology is still at an early stage. The new drone uses an orientation system that integrates optical cameras, thermal cameras and sonar to detect any obstacle, with the help of the on-board computer that uses machine learning. The drone's rotors are covered, and the covers act as wings during horizontal flight.
The on-board computer is autonomous and not connected to a control unit, a cloud or anything other than instructions remotely, just to avoid problems that may arise from even a temporary loss of connection. The place for the package is in the middle of the fuselage. According to Amazon, the new drone, which as the video shows turns into flight, will be able to travel for about 25 kilometers and carry weights up to 2. The question that currently remains uncertain is not technical, then. Amazon in the presentation in Las Vegas stated that the activation of the service will take place 'in a matter of months'.
No date therefore specifies, nor has the area in which the experimentation starts been indicated. Samsung Fold is ready for the market, but still no date Kim Seong-Cheol, vice president of Samsung Display, during a conference in Seoul said that 'most visualization problems have been solved'. So not each one. The device should have reached the shelves on April 26th.
A few days before, during the tests carried out by journalists and professionals, however, defects emerged in the functioning of the display. Samsung has thus postponed the landing on the market and promised updates. After the first few weeks, however, the Fold was lost. And no precise information has yet arrived from the Korean group.
In the meantime, a prodding has disappeared that could have prompted the speeding up of the debut: Huawei has also decided to postpone its leaflet, the Mate X, in September to carry out further tests on the screen. Google gives up: no more tablets, it will only produce laptops Google gives up and refuses to compete with Apple's iPad.

In the United States they are studying a law against deep fakes. A Democratic deputy presented the Deep Fakes Accountability Act, which would force those who create fake videos to declare they mark them with digital watermarks or risk jail time. The fight against deep fake comes to the American Congress. Democrat deputy Yvette Clarke presented a bill to counter the misinformation due to the dissemination of video content in which real people are seen doing or saying things they never did or said.
The Deep Fakes Accountability Act consists of approximately 25 pages but, as TechCrunch notes, it is based primarily on two pillars. The first involves the obligation for every person who creates a deep fake to declare that the video has been altered through 'immovable digital watermarks and textual descriptions'.
Anyone who does not do so will commit a federal crime; the second, instead, gives the possibility to those who have been damaged by the diffusion of these videos to sue those who created them. The proposal comes at a particular time in the United States. Over the last two weeks two deep fakes have appeared on the net.

Nikkei points out that even if the dispute between the two countries were to be resolved positively, Apple would still not retrace its steps.
The company would have established that relying only on manufacturing in China, as it has done for decades, is too risky. Among the countries in which the Cupertino company seems willing to move part of the production, Nikkei mentions India, Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesia and Mexico. For now, Apple has in no way confirmed the information reported by the Japanese newspaper.
In recent weeks, The Wall Street Journal and other US media have also talked about the possibility that the company will move some of the iPhone production outside of China, thanks to Foxconn's support. Reuters reports that US President Donald Trump has decided to allow American tech firms to resume business with Huawei in a complete, sudden about-face.
