Google Chrome’s major redesign shows a lighter, rounder UI

Ars Technica - April 23, 2018 - 8:45pm

Google is planning a massive redesign of its major products this year. We've already seen some major changes land in the first Android P Developer Preview, and we've seen leaks of a new Gmail design. Next up on the docket is Google Chrome.

We've been unofficially calling Google's new design effort "Material Design 2," which is how it was first referenced in a Chrome commit from February. "Material Design" is Google's current company-wide design language, which first debuted in 2014 with Android 5.0 Lollipop. We're expecting to hear a lot about Material Design 2 at Google I/O 2018, but so far we've seen work-in-progress MD2 changes bring a lighter, rounder design to Google's products. Round buttons, boxes with rounded corners, and white background are usually among the changes. We also see an increasing use of the "Product Sans" font in the redesigns, which makes everything look more Googly given that it's the same font used in Google's logo.

Man behind Cambridge Analytica’s Facebook data mining says he’s sorry

In advance of his upcoming testimony before the UK Parliament, Aleksandr Kogan wants the public to know two things: he's sorry, and he's not a Russian agent. (Kogan, who was born in Moldova, moved to Moscow as a child before eventually emigrating to the United States, where he became a citizen.)

Kogan, who authored the initial Facebook app created at the behest of Cambridge Analytica, has now come forward. He recently granted interviews to The New York Times, BuzzFeed News, and CBS' 60 Minutes. (Kogan did not respond to Ars' request for comment.)

It was Kogan's 2014 app, "This is Your Digital Life," which invited users to log in with their Facebook credentials and answer a slew of survey questions in exchange for $4. Those respondents also allowed Kogan and his team access to their friends' public profile data. In the end, this system captured data on 87 million Facebook users. This data trove ultimately wound up in the hands of Donald Trump's presidential campaign when it hired the London-based firm.

Surface Phone speculation spurred by new phone APIs in Windows

The rumors that Microsoft is developing some kind of phone-like device (perhaps a "Surface Phone" or "Andromeda") have been floating around for years, with little concrete evidence that such a thing exists. But the latest Windows 10 Insider Preview has given new fuel for the speculative fire: it has a set of new APIs for cellular phones.

Windows has had integrated support for cell modems since Windows 8, but this has been restricted to supporting data connections. Telephony—dialing numbers, placing calls—has always required either Windows Phone or Windows 10 Mobile, which has made the full Windows 10 unsuitable for a phone.

That may be changing. Windows 10 build 17650—a preview of Redstone 5, the next Windows update after the delayed April updateincludes some telephony APIs. The new APIs cover support for a range of typical phone features: dialing numbers and contacts, blocking withheld numbers, support for Bluetooth headsets and speakerphone mode, and so on. There also looks to be some kind of video-calling support, suggesting support for 3G or LTE video calling.

Quantic Dream, the developer behind upcoming PS4 game Detroit: Beyond Human, has brought lawsuits against two French media outlets following articles accusing the developer of fostering a "toxic corporate culture."

Kotaku reports on the lawsuits against Le Monde and website Mediapart, two of the three outlets that published a joint investigation of Quantic Dream in January. The third, Canard PC, told the site it has received "threatening letters" surrounding the articles but is not the subject of any lawsuits at this time.

"We're suing their journalists," Quantic Dream founder David Cage confirmed to Kotaku at a recent preview event.

“I feel whole again:” Wounded vet receives first penis-scrotum combo transplant

A young military veteran severely maimed by an improvised explosive device (IED) received a transplant of a large section of tissue, including the penis, scrotum, and a portion of the abdominal wall, from a deceased organ donor, according to The New York Times.

The 14-hour operation took place at Johns Hopkins Hospital last month. It marks the third successful penis transplant and the first complex penis transplant, which is to say it involved the scrotum and surrounding tissue as well as the penis. For ethical reasons, surgeons removed the testicles prior to the transplantation to prevent the possibility that the recipient could father children genetically belonging to the donor.

Though doctors expect his recovery and nerve regrowth to take some time, they’re hopeful that the patient will eventually recover the ability to urinate and have spontaneous erections and orgasms. In fact, they expect urination to be possible within a few months.
