Canadian Supreme Court today ruled against Google in an intellectual property case, despite the fact that the company wasn’t a defendant in the initial case. The highest courts in Canada decided that the sovereignty of an ‘interlocutory injunction’ (a cease-and-desist order) on the behalf of a Canadian communications hardware company was worth bringing about a global-wide gag order for the US based Google search-engine. The ruling was meant to stop an allegedly fake company named Datalink Technologies Gateways from counterfeiting and profiting off of several network devices and technologies owned by Equustek.

A teenager killed her boyfriend as he held a thick book to his chest, believing it would stop the bullet.
“All white people are racist. Start from that reference point, or you’ve already failed,” read a Facebook post by Black Lives Matter activist Didi Delgado. The post earned her a temporary ban from the social network. “Racist,” according to Facebook, is a racial slur, and using it to refer to a specific group of people earned Delgado a seven day time out. Another — arguably more inflammatory post — wasn’t deemed to be as offensive. Its creator, US Rep. Clay Higgins, didn’t face the same ban (or worse) after calling for the murder of a specific group of people. Higgins wrote…

Aston Martin’s forthcoming electric sports car, the RapidE, will become even more exclusive than originally planned, after the departure of struggling Chinese electronics manufacturer LeEco as an investor on the project.
In an interview with Reuters, Aston Martin CEO Andy Palmer confirmed that LeEco has pulled out of the electric supercar project, forcing the British carmaker to scale back production. Aston Martin will now only make 155 vehicles, which is about a third of the initial plan, and lean more heavily on Formula One engineering specialist Williams after the departure of LeEco. A spokesperson for Aston Martin said, “The collaboration with LeEco has reached a natural inflection point.”

These features were first announced at Google's I/O conference in May. Now we have even more information about the updates. A new feature called “suggested sharing,“ for instance, uses machine learning to automatically suggest who to share photos with based on your habits.
The app will also proactively search for photos to share by recognizing events like weddings and pre-selecting images and people. That means less endless scrolling for what to share, or who to share with. You can share directly in the app or via email or phone.

You're soon going to have a new reason to use Apple Maps.
Apple is adding a new feature to its mapping app that lets you go on 3D "flyover" tours of cities around the world. Though not technically VR, the feature is reminiscent of Google Earth VR and raises fresh questions about Apple's plans for virtual reality.
The feature, which has not been publicized by Apple, is available now in the iOS 11 public beta. When you search for a location that has "flyover" enabled, you can dive into a first-person 3D view of the city.
Navigating flyover mode is a lot like watching a 360-degree video on your phone: you can change your point of view by moving your phone around or walking around. You can also go on a "flyover tour" for a more passive experience. Read more...More about Tech, Apple, Iphone, Apps And Software, and Ios 11
