Peloton says it ‘could take months’ to bring treadmill back after recall
Peloton expects it to be a number of months before either of its treadmills are offered for sale again on both models yesterday. One of the models posed the risk of âinjury or death,â Peloton said.
The more expensive Tread Plus treadmill, which has been on sale since 2018, âcould take monthsâ to return to market, said Peloton CEO John Foley on a call with investors this afternoon. Peloton needs to develop a hardware solution to prevent people, animals, and objects from getting sucked underneath the machine and then get that solution approved by the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). A six-year-old child died recently after being pulled underneath a Tread Plus, the commission said.

David DeVore was seven years old in 2008 when a trip to the dentist left him feeling âfunnyâ afterward.

The bug was first spotted by Jan Masters, a security researcher at Pen Test Partners, and reported to Peloton on January 20th, but the company is only just now confirming that the bug has been fixed.
Using Pelotonâs API, Masters was able to scrape all sorts of customer information that would typically be private, depending on the individual userâs settings. That includes customer profiles, which can potentially feature their age, location, birthday, and workout history. All Masters had to do was make an unauthenticated...

Amazon wants to make sure drivers who don’t work for the company are well-groomed and nice online
Amazon is infamous for tightly controlling its workers and contractors, but shows that it also tries to control the employees of companies that it contracts. The company has explicit policies concerning personal grooming and social media etiquette that apply to the drivers from other delivery companies. The rules govern everything from how the delivery people look (they must have clean fingernails, teeth, ears, and hair) to how they smell (no bad breath, body odor, or immodest perfume).
The rules also apparently forbid drivers from making social media posts that could be considered obscene. That by itself wouldnât be remarkable, but itâs worth noting that these policies are applied to drivers that donât work for...

Microsoft’s feud with Apple over xCloud on iOS got a rival kicked from the App Store
In 2020, Microsoft was battling to bring xCloud or Xbox Game Streaming to the iPhone and iPad, and the conversations had an unlikely victim: Shadow â a third-party cloud gaming app that lets you stream PC games to an iPhone or iPad.
Emails between Microsoft and Apple, revealed in the Epic v. Apple trial today, show how the Xbox maker was trying to get xCloud on iOS. Microsoft was trying to figure out how Shadow, Netflix, and other similar âinteractiveâ apps were able to exist in the App Store while Apple was refusing to approve xCloud. Microsoft put forward Shadow as an example of such a service, only to see it suddenly removed from the store.
âWe were showing two examples where a game or an application was able to exist, and we didnât...
Facebook has no reason to ever resolve the Trump ban
After months of waiting, today Facebookâs Oversight Board the biggest ruling of its short existence â the question of whether to uphold the ban on Donald Trump. The verdict? Send the question back to Facebook, and give them six more months to decide.
In fairness, it wasnât quite that bad. The initial ban was upheld, and the board on the questions of whether Trumpâs posts were inciting violence, and whether world leaders should get special treatment. For now, Facebook can continue to block Trump, which means that on the face of it, this is a win for anti-Trumpers. Unless youâre visiting his self-hosted website, youâll remain blessedly safe from Trump posts.

AT&T violated labor law but can still ban workers from recording conversations, NLRB rules
An AT&T policy that bars employees from recording conversations with managers or colleagues is legal, according to a . The board found that while AT&T violated US labor law in how it had applied the policy, the recording ban itself was not illegal.
According to AT&Tâs rules, âemployees may not record telephone or other conversations they have with their co-workers, managers or third parties unless such recordings are approved in advance by the Legal Department.â
In its decision, the NLRB overturned part of an earlier ruling which said that the policyâs potential to infringe on workersâ rights outweighed AT&Tâs need to keep customer data private.

So June has to keep suffering over and over. And over. After the first three episodes, Juneâs done plenty of suffering already. Over the rest of the season Iâm really hoping to see A) much more of Alexis Bledel and Samira Wiley and B) something good happen to June. Anything.
Hereâs the roundup of...

The AirTag survived the operation like a champ and works as if nothing happened.

Are we seeing the return of the closed-door office? I hope not.
So it seems that Google, the exemplar of the open-office concept, is trying now to figure out how to keep its design ideals intact while offering its employees at least some feeling of safety in these 6-foot-apart times. Apparently, these measures may include a number of interesting concepts, . (A GIF of one of those walls slowly unfolding nearly had me doing a spit-take with my morning coffee.)
These rather complex measures may have some people wondering whether we should abandon the entire open-office concept and go back to a more old-fashioned â but in these pandemic days, safer â plan of separate offices and high-walled cubicles.

The bill was first , a supporter of former President Trump, although the bill has nothing to do with the former president, a famous denizen of social media who was by major platforms.
The Florida House of Representatives passed on Thursday, after the state Senate voted Monday to pass the measure. The bill now goes back to the Senate to approve some of the changes made by the House; the Senateâs version called for fines of $10,000 per day for banning a...

Sony’s new prime lenses are the small saviors I’ve been looking for
The new Sony 24mm f/2.8, 40mm f/2.5, and 50mm f/2.5 are three new compact prime lenses that each cost $599.99 and will be shipping in mid-May. While they uphold the reputation of quality Sony has established with the G lineup, itâs their uniformity and small size that come as a welcomed surprise.
Uniformity and size are so rarely a topic of discussion in regards to lenses. As a video-first creator, 67mm, 77mm, and 82mm are common thread sizes in my gear bag. But it feels like with every new lens I buy I have to factor in the cost of a new ND filter or a step-up or down ring. These three new lenses all conveniently share the same 49mm filter thread.
Then there is weight and size. Itâs no secret that bags with full-frame camera gear are...

NASA suspends SpaceX’s $2.9 billion moon lander contract after rivals protest
NASA has suspended work on SpaceXâs new $2.9 billion lunar lander contract while a federal watchdog agency adjudicates two protests over the award, the agency said Friday.
Putting the Human Landing System (or HLS) work on hold until the GAO makes a decision on the two protests means SpaceX wonât immediately receive its first chunk of the $2.9 billion award, nor will it commence the initial talks with NASA that would normally take place at the onset of a major contract.
Elon Muskâs SpaceX was by NASA on April 16th to build the agencyâs first human lunar lander since the Apollo program, as the agency opted to rely on just one company for a high-profile contract that many in the space industry expected to go to two companies.

Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart looks incredible in 16 minutes of new gameplay footage
Sony and Insomniac Games debuted 16 minutes of stunning new Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart gameplay footage in on Thursday.

Thereâs now dashing and wall running, for example, and you can also use the new Rift Tether to hook into portals so you can zip from place to place.

The math isn’t adding up on forests and CO2 reductions
More evidence surfaced this week that shows that forests are struggling to do humansâ dirty work when it comes to climate change. Although companies and countries are increasingly relying on forests to draw down their planet-heating carbon dioxide emissions, the math isnât adding up to show big benefits.
California might have oversold the success of carbon offsets used in its cap-and-trade system, which is often billed as one of the worldâs most successful market-based mechanisms to tackle climate change. The system appears to be failing because California is actually overcounting how much carbon dioxide forests keep out of the atmosphere, according to a new by nonprofit CarbonPlan, thatâs still under peer review, and reporting by
