And for the first time this week, videos posted to YouTube by the robotic dogs creators, Boston Dynamics, show the not-so-cuddly canines … [Read more...] about These robot dogs freaked people out by opening doors.

But the data shows that Amazon has actually sped up the process of getting packages to customers. It’s likely Amazon’s delivery times are getting better, on average, but the sheer volume of customers could be leading to an uptick in customer complaints. Still, experts speculate that the proliferation of new Amazon delivery services could be leading to a disconnect with customers, many of whom might just not get how Prime really works. Either way, it’s not great news for Amazon, which is trying to attract even more people to Prime. A growing chorus of customers are claiming that Amazon … [Read more...] about Disgruntled Amazon customers are complaining that their packages keep arriving late, and it could be an ominous sign for Prime

It was one of the features that first drew me to Android: no more copying and pasting, no more having to open Twitter or WhatsApp to send a picture I just saw in my Gallery. Apps could talk to each other and the experience felt more cohesive and seamless. But with time, the Share UI in Android has languished, stuck with the same features and same problems. It switched from a vertical list to a horizontal one, it added direct share in Android 6.0 and app pinning in … [Read more...] about Google, please fix Android’s slow, bloated share UI
Hey, remember that dog-like robot, SpotMini, that Boston Dynamics showed off last week, the one that opened a door for its robot friend? Well, the company just dropped a new video starring the canine contraption. In this week's episode, a human with a hockey stick does everything in his power to stop the robot from opening the door, including tugging on the machine, which struggles in an ... unsettling manner. But the ambush doesn’t work. The dogbot wins and gets through the door anyway. The most subtle detail here is also the most impressive: The robot is doing almost all of this autonomously, at least according to the video's description. Boston Dynamics is a notoriously tight-lipped company, so just the few sentences it provided with this clip is a relative gold mine. That information describes how a human handler drove the bot up to the door, then commanded it to proceed. The rest you can see for yourself. As SpotMini grips the handle and the human tries to shut the door, it … [Read more...] about Watch a Human Try to Fight Off That Door-Opening Robot Dog
