FCC chairman plans to 'reverse the mistake' of net neutrality

The U.S. Federal Communications Commission will vote on May 18 to kick off a proceeding to “reverse the mistake” of the agency’s 2-year-old net neutrality rules, FCC Chairman Ajit Pai said.

The rulemaking proceeding would be the first step toward repealing the regulations and reversing the agency’s 2015 decision to classify broadband as a regulated, telecom-like service.

Pai didn’t provide a lot of detail about his proposal during a speech Wednesday, but during the rulemaking, the FCC will seek public comment on how best to move forward with new net neutrality rules or guidelines, he said. The FCC is scheduled to release the text of Pai’s proposal on Thursday.

Waymo is now letting ordinary people sign up to test its self-driving cars in Phoenix

Alphabet’s Waymo self-driving car company is looking for people to test their technology. Anyone living in Phoenix can now apply to ride in one of their cars.

Waymo is a spin-off of the Google self-driving car project. The self-driving tech company has over 2 million miles of self-driving experience. Each car comes with a technician that can take over in the case of an emergency. There are already 100 Fiat-Chrysler Pacifica minivans on the road, with 500 more to come. The tests will help Waymo better understand how people use self-driving cars.

The best racing game ever made is getting a truly insane addition

There are few better games on any modern video game console than “Forza Horizon 3.”

Forza Horizon 3

It’s a killer racing game — the best ever made — but it’s also just a fantastic game. One of its strongest features is its variety: There are dozens of cars, SUVs, trucks, and other vehicle types to drive in “Horizon 3,” to say nothing of environmental variation. You’re just as likely to fly down a twisting coastal highway in this Lamborghini as you are to fly over sand dunes in an off-road buggy.

Forza Horizon 3

There’s just one thing missing from the massive open-world of “Horizon 3”: Fantastical, gravity-defying madness.

That’s where the new Hot Wheels expansion comes in!

Forza Horizon 3

Check it out below:

SEE ALSO: ‘Forza Horizon 3’ is the best racing game on any game console

First and foremost, the Hot Wheels expansion arrives on May 9 — just a few weeks from now.

As you see in these ridiculous images, the expansion is a completely different take on the typical racing in the “Horizon” racing series.

That means not just Hot Wheels-based cars, but also “miles of looping, banking, giant, iconic, orange Hot Wheels tracks.”

More than $3 billion has now been pledged to projects on Kickstarter

cards against humanity game

On Friday, Kickstarter will celebrate its eighth birthday.

But on Tuesday night, it marked another major milestone: More than $3 billion (£2.3 billion) has now been pledged to projects on the crowdfunding platform.

“I don’t think this was ever a goal we had in mind, or a place we thought we would be,” CEO Yancey Strickler told Business Insider.

“I think when we were first starting, the dream was just to get new creative ideas funded, and I think we hoped that would work … in the second or third year, we got a sense of ‘wow, this is really growing, and we may cross a billion dollars one day,’ and now it just keeps going up and up.”

Founded on April 28, 2009, New York-headquartered Kickstarter is a crowdfunding platform aimed at supporting creative projects. Users can pledge to financially support games, gadgets, comics, and other projects in return for tiered rewards, with funds only collected if the campaign hits a pre-decided fundraising goal before its time runs out.

Over its eight years, it has funded some major successes — including irreverent card game “Cards Against Humanity” and virtual reality headset Oculus Rift (later sold to Facebook for $2 billion).

The “blockbuster projects” that attract most funding and backers are technology projects and tabletop games, Strickler said — but when it comes to numbers of projects, the category is in the minority. “There are more music projects and film projects than anything else.”

Overall, 12.7 million people have supported 123,587 successful Kickstarter projects since the company’s launch.

yancey strickler kickstarter ceoThe $3 billion milestone figure refers both to funds pledged to successful projects, and those that failed to meet their goal. In practice, around 85% of money pledged is collected, Strickler said — around $2.75 billion (£2.1 billion).

Kickstarter hopes to hit the $4-billion-pledged milestone “some time next year,” the CEO said.

In October 2015, Kickstarter made a significant and unusual change to its corporate structure — become a “Public Benefit Corporation.” The status requires them to consider their positive good on society as one of their “legally defined goals.” Since the change, the chief exec said, the company has become much more active in supporting causes it cares about like artists’ rights — and there has been a significant uptick in people looking to work for Kickstarter.

Strickler also hinted that his company has some big plans for later in 2017: “We’re working towards some major things we hope will surprise and excite people … our goal is to serve artists and creators, and my dream is that we are one of the most trusted companies in the world and every artist. And so the steps we’ll be taking, the products we’ll be doing, the initiatives we’ll be announcing, are all intended to really speak to artists and creative people, and to signal to them that in Kickstarter they have a company that is truly trying to fight for their benefit, and is putting a stake in the ground for the rights and needs of creative people.”

McAfee: Wave of Shamoon cyberattacks being coordinated by a single group

The waves of cyberattacks that have rocked Saudi Arabia over the past few months are linked to the earlier Shamoon attacks. However, the initial 2012 attack was the work of a single group, whereas the latest attacks have been carried out by different groups of varying skills and expertise, all following instructions provided by one malicious actor, McAfee researchers have found.

Researchers at McAfee Strategic Intelligence believe the 2012 Shamoon attacks against Saudi Arabia’s state-run oil company Saudi Aramco and Qatari natural gas company RasGas, the attacks last November against Saudi organizations, and these latest attacks are all the work of hacker groups supported and coordinated by a single actor, and not the efforts of multiple gangs operating independently, said McAfee principal engineer Christiaan Beek and McAfee chief scientist Raj Samani.
