Apple has used the Lightning connector for seven years. It used to be on everything but now it's only found on two types of devices. iPhones like the iPhone XS and iPhone XR, and lower-end iPads like the iPad Air. The lightning cable Apple includes with the iPhone XS doesn't support fast charging and transfers data at USB 2.0 speeds. In order to get fast charging you need to buy the 30w USB-C power adapter. Apple uses USB-C on the iPad Pro and the MacBook Pro. Switching the iPhone to USB-C would unify Apple's products. But it doesn't look like that will happen any time soon. ------------------------------------------------------ #Cables #Apple #TechInsider Tech Insider tells you all you need to know about tech: gadgets, how-to's, gaming, science, digital culture, and more.

Stern Pinball still hand-makes and sells thousands of pinball machines every year even though it was nearly game over for the industry after video games took over in the ‘90s. While on the outside the machines are still perfectly nostalgic, it’s a completely different ball game under the hood. In 2006, there were around 500 pinball players registered with the International Flipper Pinball Association worldwide. By 2017, that number jumped to 55,000.

Have you noticed a lot more anime on Netflix recently? In addition to buying older content, Netflix has also partnered with several Japanese production houses to produce five original shows. Disney plans to launch Disney in 2019, so movies and TV shows owned by Disney might be leaving Netflix. Netflix will have to rely more on its original content as more and more entertainment companies start their own streaming services. Anime could give Netflix a big advantage.

The accuracy rate of facial recognition depends on the data its fed. With enough good data, the accuracy rate could be almost perfect. Facial recognition is already being implemented in US airports for security and efficiency. But there are concerns that the US government is creating a digital ID library of millions of Americans without consent.  The US Immigration and Customs Enforcement are also using facial recognition for security reasons. But without clear protections, it could be used as a tool to violate human rights. China is also implementing facial recognition on a bigger scale by giving citizens "social scores" in hopes of helping society become better.  Facial recognition can be used to make tasks automated, convenient, and efficient. But there needs to be regulation and protections in place.

Equipped with a wifi-enabled touch-screen, the bike allows you to join high-intensity spin classes remotely and, according to the company, get a studio-grade workout from anywhere. Over the course of two weeks, Producer Benji Jones put it to the test, taking a 45-minute class every day.

This is Ikea's future lab, Space10. It's a space in downtown Copenhagen where researchers are creating a sustainable future by changing the way we live, work, and eat.  The lab aims to highlight and answer some of the biggest questions about our future, and explores everything from tech innovations, to affordable housing. We saw its new SolarVille project, a 50:1 model village that produces self-sufficient and sustainable electricity. The model uses solar panels and blockchain technology to distribute solar energy around the village to those who need it, when they need it, and Space10 believes it could be a solution for the 1.1 billion people who have little or no electricity at all.  While these futuristic projects are often technical, the managing director Kaave Pour hopes that Space10s 'playful research' approach will make them fun and accessible to everyone: "For many people, research is seen as a little bit boring, [it's] facts and data, and nobody really seems to get super excited about it. We try to collaborate not just with data scientists and researchers and academics but with designers and creatives to translate [these ideas] into something that people give a damn about". Space10 doesn't just work in tech, and its test kitchen is where the foods of the future are dreamt up. The recipes are designed to be future-proof, while some use everyday ingredients, often they'll include more experimental things like insects or algae. You may be unlikely to see these on the menu next time you visit Ikea, but the lab is is releasing a cookbook to inspire people at home to experiment more with these sustainable foods.

Nintendo is dominating the video game industry. The Switch console is expected to sell over 35 million units worldwide, and six of the top-selling 20 games of 2018 were Switch-exclusive games. We break down its success. #Nintendo #NintendoSwitch #TechInsider Following is the transcript of the video: Kevin Webb: Nintendo has been doing great in the past year. The Nintendo Switch is the fastest-selling console of the current generation, and Nintendo sold more games than any other publisher during 2018. Six of the top 20 selling games in 2018 were actually Nintendo Switch exclusives. Compared to Sony and Microsoft who were trying to turn PlayStation and Xbox into large entertainment brands, Nintendo is focusing on making games more portable, accessible, and just plain fun with the Switch. Nintendo has always had a reputation for making great games, but the Wii U was a major misstep. The company has gotten back on its feet and back in the game with the Nintendo Switch. Since March 2018, Nintendo has sold 8.7 million Switch consoles in the US, and the company expects to sell 35 million worldwide by March 2019. So why's the Switch selling so well? Because it actually works. You can hook it up to your TV at home, and when you're ready, you can pick it up and take it to play on the go. One of the biggest benefits the Switch has over the Wii U and the Wii is the larger digital library. There are just so many games you can play on the Switch, your favorite, my favorite. Nintendo has built a cast of iconic characters with games like "Super Mario," "The Legend of Zelda," the Pokémon franchise. These characters have followed players across generations to different games, different consoles, and this is no more apparent than in "Super Smash Bros. Ultimate," which is a megamash of Nintendo characters. You've got Mario, Donkey Kong, Link, Zelda, Samus, Luigi, Yoshi, Diddy Kong, Marth, Roy. I mean, come on, that's the whole family right there. This year is gonna bring some more cool Switch games too, like "Super Mario Maker 2," "Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening," which is an awesome remake of a Game Boy classic, and "Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 3," which is a Switch exclusive.I think that Reggie and the different marketing videos and silly demonstrations that they did really resonated with fans who were just as excited and crazy about the games. Seeing an executive at the top just as excited about a new Pokémon game, not excited to sell you a new Pokémon game but excited about the Pokémon, was just fun, and that was important. As it stands right now, the Switch has very little competition in the portable gaming space. I think that a lot of their competitors are looking past what the Switch is right now and looking into streaming games and removing the need for a console or hardware entirely. But I think the Switch is going to stand out as a unique piece of hardware for a long time. There's still going to be an audience that wants what is essentially the Game Boy, the original handheld system that you can go around and play. And it certainly won't hurt if you can bring it home and plug it up to your TV. Given the success of the Switch, we'll have to wonder where Nintendo's going next. The company is still supporting software for its other handheld console, the 3DS, and that came out in February 2011. So if that's any indication, the Nintendo Switch could be [around] for a very, very long time. With streaming and other technology getting off the ground, there will still be opportunities for Nintendo to get their games out on other consoles or platforms if they so choose, but so far the company seems pretty interested in protecting their own games. So long as Nintendo can keep making great games for their iconic characters and delivering innovative hardware to their fans, they're gonna be on top of the video game industry for years to come. And now we have Bowser, president of Nintendo of America. I don't know nothing about this man. Nobody knows nothing about this man. He's just a guy with the name Bowser: It's hilarious. ------------------------------------------------------ Tech Insider tells you all you need to know about tech: gadgets, how-to's, gaming, science, digital culture, and more.
