How was this not laughed out the room the minute anyone at Microsoft saw it in action? It's almost April fool's level ridiculous.

July? British government could decide to boot Chinese giant Huawei from the UK's networks by this month
It's funny how political fall outs make policy suddenly happen quickly. Whilst I accept the human rights issues in China are terrible, let's remember the Huawei decision is supposed to be based on security concerns, not used as a Trumpian style punishment of the companies country of origin. Huawei is just a convenient stick to beat them with, and this just makes it even more obvious the original reasoning is largely a fiction.

"What we’ve done in really rigorously testing both our own COVID-19 app, and the Google-Apple version"
Except according to the tory minister on Question Time last night they DIDN'T test the Goog-Apple app. There was no need as "it was being widely used elsewhere". The whole "backing both horses" is complete BS

Proof-of-concept open-source app can cut'n'paste from reality straight into Photoshop using a neural network
The transferring it over the air is clever, not knocking that at all. But it'll take more than what's shown in that video to impress with the cutting and pasting element. Show it extracting from a more cluttered, non neutral coloured, area and pasting into something other than a white/neutral image in the exact same lighting/environment. That is incredibly tricky and if it can't handle that it has very limited usage. Fair play on the innovation side regardless though.
It looks like you want a storage appliance for your data centre. Maybe you'd prefer a smart card reader?

UK Carphone Warehouse shops set to sling their last phones, 2.9k redundancies hit high street, as Dixons closes all 531 'standalone' sites
Whenever I'm looking for a new phone I always go to CPW. Only to physically compare look and feel of phones though, then go home and order online, even if it's FROM CPW. They also don't help themselves with their 'attentive' staff making the shops a borderline hostile place TO even enter (admittedly an approach not unique to CPW)
