The Surface Pro X might be the most repairable tablet ever


Microsoft’s been on something of a creative roll lately, but I’m not just talking about its influx of new hardware and crazy form factors. Rather, the company has been innovating in another important, but decidedly user-friendly way: it’s making its hardware a whole lot easier to repair. The company made a big deal over its improvements to the Surface Laptop 3 to make it more serviceable, including a removable SSD and modular, easier-to-access components – all without compromising the external design. For reference, the Surface Laptop and Surface Laptop 2 were notoriously awful to repair. Turns out the company didn’t…

A laser pointer can trick your smart devices into opening your doors, starting your car


A thief lies in wait across the street, hiding in the bushes and waiting for the lights of your television to go dark. Once you’re in bed, he aims a laser pointer at your Amazon Echo device, and tricks it into opening your garage door. With another laser, he tells Alexa to start your car. A team of researchers at the University of Michigan, working with another group in Japan, detailed a number of attacks just like this one in a recent paper. All of the attacks use focused light to manipulate modern smart devices, sometimes from more than a…

Instagram will test hiding likes in the US as soon as next week

Illustration by Alex Castro / The Verge

Instagram has been running tests where it hides like counts on posts in seven different countries around the world, and very soon, it will start testing hiding them for some US users as well. Instagram CEO Adam Mosseri made the announcement today at the WIRED25 conference.

In tests that have rolled out so far, likes are hidden from public posts in the Feed, on the web, and in profiles. However, you should still be able to see how many likes a post gets — it’s only other people that won’t be able to.

WeWork is divesting itself from its ‘non-core businesses,’ including a wave pool company

WeWork Cancels Plans For Its IPO

Earlier this week, SoftBank’s Masayoshi Son said that it was a mistake to have invested in WeWork, and shared a “simple” three step plan to turn around the company, which included dumping side businesses that aren’t profitable. Well, it seems like that might be happening soon, as WeWork has published a “90-day game plan” that divests itself of those non-core businesses and includes internal layoffs, as first reported by CNBC.

Here are the businesses that WeWork says it is going to get rid of. One is a company that makes wave pools.

  • Conductor, a digital marketing platform
  • Managed by Q, which makes software to help office teams hire service providers
  • Meetup, which helps people meet up for various activites
  • Space IQ, which makes…

Behringer’s newest synth is a $150 clone of the classic Roland TB-303

Image: Behringer

Behringer has announced its newest synth, the TD-3, an analog bass line synthesizer that’s essentially a clone of Roland’s TB-303 from 1982. Although the company doesn’t directly mention the TB-303, it gives a heavy wink by saying the TD-3 features “authentic reproduction of original circuitry with matched transistors” and a “pure analog signal path based on lcegendary VCO, VCF and VCA designs.”

The all-analog instrument gives you a sawtooth and square waveform VCO, an arpeggiator, a 4-pole low-pass resonant filter, distortion circuity, and a 16-step sequencer with 7 tracks, each with 250 user patterns. There’s also the addition of a 16-voice poly chain, which lets you combine multiple synthesizers for up to 16 voice polyphony. So, it’s…

Facebook and YouTube ban naming alleged Trump impeachment whistleblower

Illustration by Alex Castro / The Verge

Facebook and YouTube are removing content that potentially names the anonymous whistleblower who sparked a presidential impeachment inquiry, with Facebook saying it violates rules against “coordinating harm” on the platform. The decision follows Facebook’s earlier choice to remove ads featuring the name — which Republican political figures, including Donald Trump, Jr., have publicized on Twitter.

BuzzFeed reported attempts to spread the alleged whistleblower’s name earlier this week, confirming that Facebook would remove ads targeting them. BuzzFeed noted that the person, a former Obama administration staffer and current CIA officer, has been a target for conservative commentators since 2017. But recent articles by the conservative sites…
