News Helicopter Spots Missing Toddler In Back Seat Of Stolen Car During Live Report. A Kansas City news helicopter helped find a missing toddler who was sleeping in the back of a car when it was stolen on Wednesday night. 3-year-old Amaya Vester was asleep in the backseat of her mother’s boyfriend’s car on Wednesday, when he stopped to get gas at a Valero station. After filling up his car, he went inside to get the girl a cold drink and left the car running so he didn’t wake her. Surveillance video from the gas station shows the moment a man, who was filling his car nearby, motion to a woman inside the store to come out. After making a few purchases, the woman handed them over to the man then jumped in the unlocked car, speeding out of the parking lot with the stolen vehicle and gir
There’s a lot of things the Motorola G5 Plus gets right and then there are some that it The Motorola brand has had a rough few years, fading from consumer memory, only to make a comeback user Lenovo’s brand umbrella. Despite having some trouble adapting to the changing tes, the company is starting to catch up. They have had mixed reactions, with the wild success of the Moto E and G series, but a less-than-stellar reception to the Moto Z phones with their modular approach. This year, the highlight of Motorola’s Mobile World Congress show was the Moto G5 and the G5 Plus. The two phones suffered extensive leaks prior to their announcements and given the success the Moto G4 family had in India, the excitement around every leak of the phones is understandable. With a looming threat from Nokia
In a video that you have to see to believe, a group of bystanders risked their lives to save a group of people trapped in burning cars. It all happened on a road in the Ingushetia Region of Russia, where the video shows a group of people at the side of the road likely having car trouble. But, no one could have anticipated what was to happen next, and while discussing what to do, the driver’s rear dash cam captures a terrible car crash which involved two cars.

If you're an Android fan, there's a good chance you already know how to customize your home screen with launchers, icon packs and widgets. But what about everyday users? That's where Google wants to help. It just launched a #myAndroid Taste Test that devises a personalized home screen based on a series of rapid-fire questions, such as whether you prefer a natural or human-made look, or your overall skill level. Once you've finished, you get download links to all the apps you need to create the intended effect, such as wallpaper utilities and keyboards. Sadly, it's not a tap-and-you're-done affair. You'll still have to go through each app to get the exact design you see when you've completed the test. However, this could still be particularly helpful, wh...
Sources tell us that Google is acquiring Kaggle, a platform that hosts data science and machine learning competitions. Details about the transaction remain somewhat vague, but given that Google is hosting its Cloud Next conference in San Francisco this week, the official announcement could come as early as tomorrow. Reached by phone, Kaggle co-founder CEO Anthony Goldbloom declined to deny that the acquisition is happening. Google itself declined “to comment on rumors.” Kaggle, which has about half a million data scientists on its platform, was founded by Goldbloom and Ben Hamner in 2010. The service got an early start and even though it has a few competitors like DrivenData, TopCoder and HackerRank, it has managed to stay well ahead of them by focusing on its specific niche. The ser
Yesterday, House Republicans released their replacement for the Affordable Care Act. And today, Representative Jason Chaffetz said that people could afford the bill’s more expensive premiums by choosing to “invest in their own health care” rather than buying the latest iPhone. If the bill becomes law, a lot of people would get less generous subsidies to help them afford insurance. On the other hand, we would all be allowed to save more of our own money in a Health Savings Account. That’s nice, but it’s no substitute for insurance. Here’s how Chaffetz sees us coming up with the money to invest: Americans have choices, and they’ve got to make a choice. So rather than getting that new iPhone that they just love and want to go spend hundreds of dollars on that, maybe they should invest in
The iPhone 8 is expected to launch this September, assuming Apple fixes its supply-chain production delays. If the history of iPhone releases are anything to go by, the iPhone 8 is coming in September; the iPhone 5, the iPhone 6, and the iPhone 7 were released in September of 2012, 2014, and 2016. But according to KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple is struggling to get its high-end OLED phone screens ready in time because there is "there is virtually no time to make changes to the 3D camera system" before a September launch. One possible scenario is that Apple launches two successors to the iPhone 7 — which would normally be branded the iPhone 7s — and then launch an "iPhone 8" with the new OLED screen later in the year. That would be a radical departure for Apple. Sep
While the tag was announced in December, it seems to only now be more widely making the rounds as Facebook continues to roll it out in the United States.The line between fact and fiction on Facebook can sometimes be a bit blurry thanks to a slew of fake news or biased sites that can sometimes make it hard to suss out the real story. Facebook is now trying to help its 1.86 billion users cut through the clutter by adding a "disputed news" flag to stories that have been debunked by third party groups. The disputed news flag was introduced a few months ago, along with a suite of new tools that allow users to flag anything they consider "disputed." After a story is marked, a group of Facebook researchers will initially have the responsibility of sifting through fl...
WITHIN THE NEXT five years, Google will produce a viable quantum computer. That’s the stake the company has just planted. In the pages of Nature late last week, researchers from Google’s Quantum AI Laboratory told the world that a machine leveraging the seemingly magical principles of quantum mechanics will soon outperform traditional computers on certain tasks. They said this long-anticipated technology will, among other things, improve the artificial intelligence that’s already remaking the tech world. “The field of quantum computing will soon achieve a historic milestone,” the team wrote. They call this milestone “quantum supremacy.” Now IBM is planting a stake of its own. Today, the company announced plans to offer commercial quantum machines to businesses and research organizations
