Why states might win the net neutrality war against the FCC

Can states force Internet service providers to uphold net neutrality? That's one of the biggest unanswered questions raised by the Federal Communications Commission vote to repeal its net neutrality rules.

After the FCC vote, lawmakers in more than half of US states introduced bills to protect net neutrality in their states. The governors of five states have signed executive orders to protect net neutrality.

The major obstacle for states is that FCC Chairman Ajit Pai has claimed the authority to preempt states and municipalities from imposing laws similar to the net neutrality rules his FCC is getting rid of. ISPs that sue states to block net neutrality laws will surely seize on the FCC's repeal and preemption order.

Apple preps new AirPods: One with hands-free Siri, one water-resistant

Ars Technica - February 22, 2018 - 3:56pm


One of the smallest members of Apple's product lineup may get a useful update this year. According to a Bloomberg report, Apple is working on new models of its AirPod wireless earbuds. One could debut later this year with an updated wireless chip and another with a water-resistant design may come out in 2019.

AirPods arrived in 2016 alongside the iPhone 7 as a solution to the smartphone's lack of headphone jack. The W1 chip inside the AirPods helps it connect almost immediately to a user's Apple products. According to the report, Apple is developing a new model with a new wireless chip that helps it better manage Bluetooth connections. It's unclear if this new chip will be a variation of the W2 chip, which debuted with the Apple Watch Series 3 last year, or if it will be an entirely new one.

This year's new model may also give users voice activation for Apple's virtual assistant, Siri. Currently, users must tap the side of an AirPod before they can use voice commands. In the new AirPod models, summoning Siri would be hands-free, requiring only a voice command such as "Hey Siri" and no physical prompt.

The Cadillac CT6 review: Super Cruise is a game-changer

Ars Technica - February 22, 2018 - 3:00pm

Cadillac's flagship CT6 might not have the best interior in its class. It might not have the sharpest, track-honed handling. It doesn't have a butter-smooth V12 engine. It definitely doesn't have the best infotainment system. And yet, it is carrying the most exciting technology being offered in any production vehicle on sale in 2018.

Called Super Cruise, Cadillac's new tech represents the best semi-autonomous system on the market. In fact, Super Cruise is so good, I think General Motors needs to do everything it can to add it to the company's entire model range, post-haste.

You sure sound excited about this thing

Regular readers will know this isn't the first time I've written about Super Cruise. In fact, at last year's New York auto show, we awarded it an Ars Best distinction in the "Automotive Technology" field—a bold move for new technology that we had yet to actually test.
