Upcoming iOS Access Restrictions Could Stymie Law Enforcement

Apple plans to equip iOS 12 with USB Restricted Mode, a feature that requires users to unlock their iPhone with their passcode before USB accessories can connect if the phone last was unlocked more than an hour earlier. The company included this feature in the developer versions of iOS 11.4.1 and iOS 12. Apple will release USB Restricted Mode publicly in a future software update, it confirmed this week. USB Restricted Mode should work on iPads the same way as on iPhones because it’s a software feature….

Samsung Galaxy X folding phone could cost twice as much as iPhone X

Apple and Samsung are both supposedly working on foldable phones. The Korean company will get its out first though, but hold onto your wallet, it’s going to be shockingly expensive.

How The New Pokemon Games Could Get Me To Play Pokemon Go Again

Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu and Let’s Go Eevee have just been announced. The new Pokemon RPGs are influenced by Pokemon Yellow and take place in the Kanto region, and they’re designed for newcomers just getting into the main Pokemon series. In that spirit, the games have a lot in common with Pokemon Go–and even connect to it directly.

This was a big rumor leading up to the announcement, and a lot of diehard Pokemon fans were pretty unhappy about it on Twitter. That disappointment made more sense when people thought Let’s Go Pikachu and Let’s Go Eevee were “Pokemon Switch,” the core Pokemon game announced at E3 last year. That game is entirely separate from the Let’…

Fleet of autonomous boats could service some cities, reducing road traffic

The future of transportation in waterway-rich cities such as Amsterdam, Bangkok, and Venice — where canals run alongside and under bustling streets and bridges — may include autonomous boats that ferry goods and people, helping clear up road congestion.

Researchers from MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) and the Senseable City Lab in the Department of Urban Studies and Planning (DUSP), have taken a step toward that future by designing a fleet of autonomous boats that offer high maneuverability and precise control. The boats can also be rapidly 3-D printed using a low-cost printer, making mass manufacturing more feasible.

Tiny particles could help fight brain cancer

Glioblastoma multiforme, a type of brain tumor, is one of the most difficult-to-treat cancers. Only a handful of drugs are approved to treat glioblastoma, and the median life expectancy for patients diagnosed with the disease is less than 15 months.

MIT researchers have now devised a new drug-delivering nanoparticle that could offer a better way to treat glioblastoma. The particles, which carry two different drugs, are designed so that they can easily cross the blood-brain barrier and bind directly to tumor cells. One drug damages tumor cells’ DNA, while the other interferes with the systems cells normally use to repair such damage.

In a study of mice, the researcher…
