Switch antitrust case rumbles on

Pretty much any online explainer about high dynamic range TVs (HDR) is hobbled by a not-insignificant asterisk: if you're reading it online, your screen almost certainly can't convey the visual difference. HDR benefits from a full pipeline of newfangled tech to increase color gamut and luminance ranges on screens. In other words, they're brighter and more colorful—and most computer and phone screens can't convey that.
But as it turns out, there's a way, albeit a geeky one, to visually break down both the impact and issues of current-day HDR. As one enterprising gamer found out, the answer is tucked away into every single Xbox One console.
A thread on the renowned gaming forum ResetERA appeared on Thursday with a huge swath of heatmap images from modern HDR-compatible games, all posted by a user with the handle EvilBoris. And as he explains to Ars Technica, these images came about simply out of curiosity.
Customers should be allowed to "choose who they share vehicles with", says Transport for London.
A federal judge in Los Angeles has dismissed a copyright infringement lawsuit filed against Happy Mutants, the parent company of the popular website Boing Boing.
Back in November 2017, Playboy Entertainment Group sued Boing Boing, accusing it of violating the company’s copyright when, in February 2016, the website simply linked to a separate online collection of "Every Playboy Playmate Centerfold Ever." That portfolio, which was hosted on Imgur, has since been removed. Imgur did not immediately respond to Ars’ request for comment.
Because Boing Boing has advertising on its site, Playboy argued, it is profiting from those unauthorized images.

How DevOps could be about to collide with machine learning
DevOps is finally getting somewhere. This year the term is ten years old and like most ten-year olds, DevOps is starting to show signs of puberty and cognitive maturity. According to analyst Forrester, this is being reflected in industry. In 2017, a Forrester survey found that over 50 per cent of organisations were to implement DevOps in some form or another, enough for the analyst to claim that 2018 is going to be the year of enterprise DevOps.…
