The choking air across Northern California is temporary and will likely be gone by the middle of next week when rain comes in. For China and India, these conditions are normal... The US Clean Air Act, signed by Richard Nixon in 1970, has saved countless U.S. lives.

No. I could imagine it would take a lot more processing power.

Meanwhile, though, Night Sight let me take some awesomely candy-colored dark shots. It’s delicious — and puts the iPhone XS to shame.

A third of humanity now takes smartphone photos. They’re our memories. What is an algorithm deciding our memories should look like? Here’s a zoom shot I took of the White House at night. The Pixel 3 deleted some architectural details (in the corner) it thought ought to be smooth

That will definitely come to Chinese phones first. They already auto-slim your face and make other body improvements.

Some have taken issue with my use of the word “fake” to describe these shots. Bring on the debate! In the moment, this scene looked a lot more like the right than it did the left. Faketastic!

Greetings from SF. I think it's fair to say the extent of the air-quality problem produced by the wildfires is way worse than the East Coast has gotten its collective head around. Our biggest and most important state pretty much looks and smells like NYC did the day after 9/11.

As you read the statements pouring in from Facebook executives, PR officials, former employees, and board, recall the scene from the documentary where Facebook reps gave the exact same canned responses, one after the next....

Self-driving cars are the way of the future -- as long as the future doesn't include oddly shaped objects, snow, bumpy roads or darkness.
