On September 25, news of the head of state's visit to Google made Granma's front page, amid coverage of the Cuban President's agenda for the 73rd Session of the United Nations General Assembly. The Cuban newspaper described the meeting as "informative and fruitful" and highlighted the quality of Cuba's human resources, which determines the country's capacity for high technology development. Fernando Ravsberg, an Uruguayan journalist based in Cuba, told Sputnik that Miguel Díaz Canel's visit to Google's NYC HQ encourages "the expectation of a better relationship with the company as well as with the entire digital system of the United States, in order to accelerate the development of communication, which is still very low." Alongside Google's executives, the representatives of VaynerMedia, Connectify, Mapbox, McKinsey and Company, Virgin Group, AirBnB, Revolution, Twitter, Microsoft, … [Read more...] about Does Google Land in Cuba?

The explosion could be felt 30 miles away. At 9.07am on 1 September, a SpaceX rocket containing 75,000 gallons of liquid oxygen and rocket-grade kerosene ignited into a fireball that could be seen from orbit, billowing black smoke into the gray sky around its Cape Canaveral launch pad. On board was a $200m, 12,000lb communications satellite – part of Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s Internet.org project to deliver broadband access to sub-Saharan Africa. Zuckerberg wrote, with a note of bitterness, on his Facebook page that he was “deeply disappointed to hear that SpaceX’s launch failure destroyed our satellite”. SpaceX founder Elon Musk told CNN it was the “most difficult and complex failure” the 14-year-old company had ever experienced. It was also the second dramatic explosion in nine months for SpaceX, following a “rapid unscheduled disassembly” of a booster rocket as it attempted to land after a successful mission to the … [Read more...] about Rocket men: why tech’s biggest billionaires want their place in space
On the bright Monday morning of October 21st in downtown Singapore, German air taxi startup Volocopter unveiled the VoloPort, the world’s first flying taxi station. Perched atop a floating platform at Marina Bay, the temporary structure offered a generous view of the country’s central business district’s most iconic landmarks. The press event went off without a hitch, though from the lingering construction crew, it was clear that this had been an 11th-hour effort. The next day, just before the scheduled public test flight for the Volocopter 2X, a brisk downpour threatened to cancel the entire demonstration. A modest crowd of press and guests waited in a nearby building for the rain to let up; across the bay, groups of people were waiting to catch a glimpse of the future. On Tuesday, the VoloPort’s landing pad was empty. Some had assumed that the 2X would take off — or at least land — at the floating platform, but the tiny white aircraft was 700 … [Read more...] about The flying taxi future is coming, but it’s elitist and underwhelming
