New MacBook Pro keyboard design may fix dust problems after all

While Apple's redesigned keyboards in the new MacBook Pro models are made to be quieter, they also appear to be designed to prevent another problem. According to a document sent to Apple Authorized Service Providers and obtained by MacRumors, the new keys have a "membrane" underneath that helps "prevent debris" from getting into the butterfly mechanism.

"The keyboard has a membrane under the keycaps to prevent debris from entering the butterfly mechanism," state the Canadian and European versions of the document. "The procedure for the space bar replacement has also changed from the previous model. Repair documentation and service videos will be available when keycap parts begin shipping."

The US version of the document doesn't mention the membrane specifically. However, it does link to another document entitled Butterfly Mechanism Keycap Replacement MacBook Pro (2018), which references the membrane under the keycaps as a method of stopping debris from entering the keyboard.

Project Loon signs its first deal for Internet-delivering balloons—in Kenya

Ars Technica - July 19, 2018 - 5:50pm

At the AAAS 2018 conference, Loon's Sal Candido shared this video aid when the time came to explain how Project Loon functions. "The team back in Mountain View knows presentations aren't my strength."

Project Loon, the Internet-delivering balloon system that grew out of Alphabet's Project X division, has announced its first commercial deal. According to multiple reports, the recent Project X graduates will partner with Telkom Kenya to increase connectivity in the country.

“Connectivity is critical. If you are not online, you are left out,” Joe Mucheru, Kenya's information, communication, and technology minister, told Reuters. "Loon is another technology that is being introduced that the licensed operators hopefully can be able to use.”

Public details of the deal appear scarce for now—no firm timeframe for deployment or financial details were available as of press time. The BBC notes that with this new partnership, Telkom Kenya will provide the Internet signal, and Loon will spread it over remote areas of Kenya.

FCC votes against Sinclair/Tribune merger, likely dooming deal

The Federal Communications Commission has voted unanimously against approving Sinclair Broadcast Group's acquisition of Tribune Media Company, likely dooming the merger.

Technically, the commission adopted a Hearing Designation Order that refers the merger to an administrative law judge. Mergers usually don't survive that legal process. Besides referring the merger to a judge, the FCC's other options included denying the merger outright, approving the merger, or approving it with conditions. The unanimous vote to refer the merger to a judge was finalized on Wednesday evening.

Sinclair's problems stem from its plan to divest some stations in order to stay under station ownership limits. FCC Chairman Ajit Pai proposed the designation order on Monday, saying that Sinclair's proposal to divest certain stations "would allow Sinclair to control those stations in practice, even if not in name, in violation of the law."

Halo devs not working on battle royale mode for Infinite

Ars Technica - July 19, 2018 - 5:15pm

Enlarge / Don't expect this to be the setting for a survival-style battle on an ever-shrinking map anytime soon.

The stratospheric success of games like Fortnite and Playerunknown's Battlegrounds in the past year has led to a wave of copycat battle royale survival games and modes. Even franchises like Call of Duty aren't immune, with Black Ops 4 adding a new battle royale mode called Blackout while ignoring the usual single-player campaign.

It seems the Halo series will not be following the trend, though. In a Halo 5-focused "social stream" hosted on Microsoft's Mixer platform last night, 343 Industries writer Jeff Easterling said the studio is not working on a battle royale mode for the upcoming Halo Infinite .

A viewer plainly asked, "Will there be battle royale in Halo Infinite?" Easterling responded definitively, "I’ll tell you right now, the only BR we’re interested in is Battle Rifle, the original BR. So calm yourself."
