Intel, Volkswagen And Mobileye To Launch Self-Driving Taxi Service

Volkswagen
The fleet of electric commercial self-driving taxis will arrive in 2019 as Volkswagen, Intel and Mobileye join forces to be first to market.

Self-driving cars have been on the cards for a few years now but there has been a lot of talk and not much sign of a real-world solution. This will change in 2019 when Intel, Volkswagen and Mobileye join forces to implement a fleet of self-driving taxis in Israel.

This is one of the first practical examples of Level 4 commercial MaaS – with level 4 describing the type of AI involved (by the Society of Automotive Engineers) as having no human driver with certain parameters, and MaaS ‘being Mobility as a Service’ which is just a fancy way to say selling transport.

Volkswagen will be supplying the cars while Mobileye will be looking after the self-driving technology that will power the cars, which are all reliant on the chips supplied by Intel.

It’s important to note that this collaboration between these entities is non-exclusive which allows each company to pursue different initiatives. This is an interesting nugget of information, and almost certainly insisted upon by Intel as its chips are reported to be the furthest along in this technology so they wouldn’t want to be tied down to a single deal.

Intel’s partnership with BMW, Mobileeye and Fiat Chrysler which is seeking to bring self-driving technology to production vehicles is still very much in place and is targeting a different section of the self-driving market.

Intel is doing its best to place itself very firmly at the centre of the self-driving movement which could be incredibly lucrative in the years to come.

Dell XPS 13 9380 (2019) Review

Dell's flagship laptop returns to us in 2019 with refreshed specs, a brand new webcam design and a cheaper model. We review the XPS 13 9380 in full.
Should I Buy The Dell XPS 13 (2019)?
The XPS 13 for 2019 ticks all the boxes. It looks great, the build quality is excellent, it’s nice and portable and has a wide range of specs to choose from.
While not a massive upgrade from last year's model, it’s had some solid refinement including getting the webcam back into the top bezel and also introduces a more affordable Core i3 edition.

Samsung Galaxy S9 vs Samsung Galaxy S10e

Samsung's Galaxy S range has been updated and here we compare the S10e - the new 'lite' model - to last years' Galaxy S9 to help you decide which phone is best for you.
Should I Buy The Samsung Galaxy S10e Or Samsung Galaxy S9?
The S10e could be the sleeper hit of this year. It doesn’t have the embedded fingerprint sensor of the S10 and S10 Plus or their triple cameras, but it comes with the same processors, new screen design, ultra-wide camera, and all in a compact and comfortable format with a smaller price-tag.
That being said, the S9 is still an excellent device, and its new, lower price makes it a definite bargain.

Huawei P30 Pro Release Date, Price & Specs Rumours

Huawei's MWC press conference didn't include an announcement of the P30 range. Instead, it will hold a launch event in Paris at the end of March. We round up rumours, speculation and more on the new Huawei line-up, including the expected P30 release date, price and specifications.

Huawei Mate 20 X Review

The Huawei Mate 20 X is an obscenely large smartphone but it has many of the features of the Mate 20 Pro for less. Here’s our full review of the huge premium slab
Should I Buy The Huawei Mate 20 X?
With a bigger screen, bigger battery and smaller notch than the Mate 20 Pro, the Huawei Mate 20 X also has the same camera set up and adds a headphone jack. If you want the most screen possible, it might be for you. 
You lose the curved display, wireless charging, full water resistance and secure Face ID but for many that won’t matter if a huge display, outstanding camera and great performance are top of your list. If you want a normal size phone, get the Mate 20 Pro.

iHealth Core Review

This smart scale from iHealth offers detailed body composition measurements, from BMI to visceral fat rating. Find out what we think in our iHealth Core review.
Should I Buy The iHealth Core? We like the way that the Core and Lite scales interact with the other iHealth products, and the Core offers a bunch of useful metrics with which to monitor your health. Setup is easy and the app's graphs give a decent visual representation of your health-metric trends as you progress.
