Apple's self-driving car plans are accelerated by former Tesla Autopilot software executive
by Moshe Jacobs
Apple has acquired former Tesla Autopilot software executive employee Christopher Moore, as reported by Bloomberg. Christopher Moore's onboarding is the latest in Apple's efforts to accelerate its self-driving car plans.
The hiring of Christopher Moore presents an interesting dynamic to Apple's self-driving car project. Moore has, in the past, refuted arguably unrealistic statements made by Tesla's CEO Elon Musk in regards to the proficiency of Autopilot performance being able to reach Level 5 autonomy within a couple of years.
Christopher Moore is said to report to Stuart Bowers, yet another employee who formerly worked at Tesla and was picked up by Apple.
In the past 5 years, Apple has been, not-so-secretively, working on an electric self-driving vehicle codenamed Project Titan. While it seems that Apple's exact goals are unknown with what it hopes to achieve, as can be evidenced by the constant rotation of management as well as its shift in plans from building a vehicle to compiling autonomous driving software and back again to building a vehicle, the Apple Car project is seemingly still accelerating forward. In regards to its self-driving software, Apple is said to be implementing LiDAR scanners and video cameras for awareness of the surrounding environment.
Whatever transpires from Project Titan, whether solely autonomous software or a full-fledged self-driving vehicle, it will sure to be just another notch on Apple's belt.

Microsoft's Outlook IMAP login issue is affecting several third-party email clients
by Usama Jawad
Internet Message Access Protocol (IMAP) is a standard protocol utilized to read email. After someone siginto to their email account, the client uses an OAuth token to communicate with the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) servers for the exchange of emails. However, it appears that there has recently been an issue where Outlook's IMAP service is rejecting OAuth-based logins.
The issue was brought to the attention of Neowin by Robert Virkus, who is the developer of the third-party email client, Maily. Apparently, many third-party apps such as Maily, eM Client, Aqua Mail, and Fair Email can't communicate to the Outlook service, which means that new accounts can't be added and emails can't be exchanged. Interestingly, the Gmail app on Android is not affected.
Virkus reported the issue to Microsoft on September 24 with some error details, and the company confirmed on September 26 that the problem does exist as stated, and that its teams are working on a fix.
Today, Microsoft offered a temporary workaround where it recommended that if an Outlook account has been added as IMAP, it should be changed to Exchange temporarily. Virkus responded to the Redmond tech giant that for many developers, changing the protocol of an email client is not possible so an official and permanent fix should be provided. The company's latest response is as follows:
If you're using a third-party email client and are experiencing issues communicating with Outlook servers, this is probably the reason. Microsoft has not yet indicated an ETA for when a fix will be available and it's already been four days since the issue was reported. The company's official responses can be seen here.
On a previous thread I have mentioned this as well... and now it's back again. But with a different mouse; the Razer Basilisk Ultimate.
Same gaming notebook; ASUS ROG GL731GV.
I have stutterings, and even 'stops' of my mouse. Both wired and wireless.
However, I read on a different site/thread (don't know where exactly - that stutterings can also happen on higher display refresh rates (and that Microsoft is working on this dynamic refresh rates in Windows 11).
So, I was wondering... if this is happening to me with two mice on the same notebook/screen, might the display be the 'issue' of this thing. And, if so... how can I make sure my mouse is working great (again), with no stuttering.
I mean... for a gamer a high refresh rate should be key, as well as a gaming mouse. So I guess/hope that gaming mice makers are taking this into account. Right?
If these 1 and 1 makes 2, how can I make sure my mouse is working as it should with no stutterings, hickups or sudden stops?
(My trackpad is working as it should. Anytime.)
Hardware-accelerated GPU scheduling was off. I ticked it 'on'. Hope this helps...
The freeze isn't techically a "freeze", when it happens like for example in video games everyone who i'm playing with freezes but I can still move around and when it stops after a few seconds i also notice i have moved, but to a completelty diffrent spot from where i was moving when it was frozen.It also happens on the web for example in google meet classes, where i can still move my mouse, but I can't hear anyone and they're camera either freezes or turns off completely. If you have even a slight idea how this could be fixed, please tell me.
Xiaomi to begin making electric vehicles, says report
by Paul Hill
Reuters has reported that Xiaomi, the Chinese smartphone maker, will begin building electric vehicles at Great Wall Motors' factory. In response to the report, Xiaomi said it wasn’t going to provide comments and Great Wall said, in an exchange filing on Friday, that it hadn’t discussed this with Xiaomi.
The information that Xiaomi will be using Great Wall’s factory came from three people who have direct knowledge of the matter who spoke to Reuters. Two of the sources said that the vehicles produced at the factory will carry Xiaomi’s branding and that they will be aimed at a mass market. To help speed things along, Great Wall Motors will provide Xiaomi with engineering consultancy. The third source said they believe that the partnership could be announced next week.
With technology companies getting closer and closer to the vehicle industry bringing entertainment systems and helping to boost automation it’s not very surprising to hear that Xiaomi is also looking to get into cars. This won’t be the company’s first foray into vehicles either as it already sells several electric scooters.
Following Reuter’s report, Xiaomi’s shares increased by 6.3% and Great Wall’s Hong Kong stock rose by 10.4% and its Shanghai shares grew by the maximum 10% daily limit. This indicates that investors believe the rumours are true but we will just have to wait a little longer to see whether they’re confirmed.
