If there is any indication of the cultural import and effect of the “millennials” – a term I dislike for reasons I will explain later – look no further than America’s malls. The Baby Boomer hubris and NIMBYism that sent malls into further and further orbits from city centers has come home to roost and it promises to change the face of retail in a big way. First,… Read More

Congress took the first step toward setting rules for self-driving cars, as a House panel unanimously approved a measure that would allow thousands of automated vehicles to hit the road while federal regulators develop safety standards and preempt state rules.The legislation garnered bipartisan support after Republican leaders adopted Democratic proposals to bolster safety oversight by federal regulators.“Today’s markup represents the most significant step this subcommittee has taken to date to ultimately enact comprehensive legislation on self-driving technologies and services,” said Bob Latta, the Ohio Republican who chairs the House Energy and Commerce Committee’s Digital Commerce and Consumer Protection panel.The legislation is the U.S. government’s first major step toward establishing a clear regulatory framework for autonomous vehicle deployment.The full House Energy and Commerce Committee may vote on the bill as soon as next week, and it could reach the House floor after the August recess.The bill would allow manufacturers to deploy tens of thousands of self-driving vehicles under exemptions to U.S. transportation safety rules that currently bar autos that lack driver controls.Amazon is launching a new social network aimed at getting its hard-core users to spend even more money with the e-commerce giant.The service launched publicly on Tuesday on Amazon’s iPhone app, and is only open to Prime members, who pay $99 a year for Amazon’s loyalty program.The app then generates an Instagram-like feed of posts that display yellow dots on purchasable items in the photos.The company said that a longtime manager, Isabel Ge Mahe, would step into the newly established position in Shanghai.In recent quarters, its sales in the country have struggled — for the period ending April 1, revenue dropped 14 percent — in part because of increased competition from a range of domestic competitors putting out ever-cheaper, high-performing smartphones.Apple said this month that it would cooperate with a local company to build its own data center in the country, in part to satisfy the requirements of a new cybersecurity law.Shares of United Airlines’ parent tumbled Wednesday on the company’s weak forecast about revenue trends for the rest of the summer.IBM fell the most in three months after reporting revenue that missed estimates, with sales in a key unit declining for the second consecutive period.Revenue in the technology services and cloud platforms segment dropped 5.1 percent from the same period a year earlier, even though executives had said in April that they expected key contracts to come through in the quarter.
- U.S. House Committee Unanimously Approves Measure to Ease Restrictions on Autonomous Vehicles
By Juli Clover - Wednesday Jul 19, 2017
A United States House panel this morning unanimously approved a proposal that would allow car manufacturers to deploy tens of thousands of autonomous vehicles without adhering to existing auto safety standards, reports Reuters. The legislation would also ban states from implementing and enforcing some driverless car rules as regulators work to create improved federal safety standards for autonomous driving.
Under the terms of the proposal, automakers would be required to submit safety assessment reports to United States regulators, but pre-market approval of autonomous vehicles would not be required.
Automakers would have to show self-driving cars "function as intended and contain fail safe features" but the Transportation Department could not "condition deployment or testing of highly automated vehicles on review of safety assessment certifications," the draft measure unveiled late Monday said.Companies working on autonomous vehicles, including General Motors, Alphabet, Ford, and Tesla, have been lobbying Congress to pass a federal measure that would pre-empt rules being considered in California and other states that would limit the deployment of self-driving vehicles. The measure preliminarily approved today would let manufacturers subvert the rule requiring autonomous cars to have driver controls, and it would prevent states from setting self-driving car standards for software and safety systems.

The measure was updated last week to add a directive that would require the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to draft new rules for autonomous vehicles within 18 months, but consumer advocacy groups say that the bill needs tweaking to ensure that automakers prioritize safety and do not put consumers at greater risk of a crash.
Apple has its own autonomous driving software in development and would benefit from the relaxed regulations should the bill be passed. Apple has previously asked the California DMV to re-evaluate some of its rules, including those requiring companies to provide detailed public reports about testing variables and results.
Apple CEO Tim Cook in June said Apple considers its work on autonomous driving systems as "the mother of all AI projects." Apple is currently testing its software in several Lexus RX450h vehicles that are equipped with a host of sensors and cameras.
The full committee could vote on the measure as soon as next week, but the U.S. House of Representatives will not consider the bill until it reconvenes in September after the summer recess. Representative Robert Latta, who leads the Energy and Commerce Committee subcomittee overseeing consumer protection, plans to continue considering changes ahead of the full committee vote.
