Apple has nearly 500 stores around the world. Now those retail spaces will double as education centers. On Tuesday, the company unveiled "Today at Apple," a new in-store program of educational sessions that will run the gamut from beginner to pro-level. Apple has piloted some similar programs, but only on a limited basis. This will be Apple's most robust, in-store effort yet. SEE ALSO: Apple's cheap iPad is tailor-made for education The free sessions, which will go global in May, will be geared toward multiple disciplines and ages, and attendees will be able to take courses, like iPhone Photography, over time that slowly improve their skills in one discipline.

Google's self-driving car company Waymo just opened up a pilot program in Phoenix, Arizona, letting people get free rides in its driverless minivans. The program, Waymo said in a blog post Tuesday, is open to "hundreds of people with diverse backgrounds and transportation needs." And those folks won't just get one or two rides. The program will give them access to Waymo's fleet of cars every day, at any time, as long as they keep their destinations in the Phoenix area. SEE ALSO: Google's driverless cars will now have to prove themselves as a real business More precisely, Waymo is looking for people in parts of the Phoenix metropolitan area, which includes Chandler, Tempe, Mesa and Gilbert. Only folks that are 18 years or older may apply, and only one per household. But once you're accepted, all eligible members of your family can take the rides. Check out the project's FAQ here for all the details. Read more... More about Google , Self Driving Cars , Waymo , Tech , and Transportation

Just when you think the iPhone rumors are circling the drain of confirmation, a new one crops up to throw a wrench in the machine. One of the most consistent news nuggets included in just about every investors' note and supply chain leak is that Apple is prepping three new phones for 2017: The deluxe iPhone 8 (or Edition , or X ), which will have a curved OLED display and other brand new design upgrades, and the 7S and 7S Plus, which are expected to be only slightly improved versions of the current iPhone 7. That three model release plan might now be murky after a new rumor from Chinese tech blog Micgadget , which was first spotted by MacRumors . The blog, which has a spotty track record, claims Apple will only bring two iPhone models to market this year. Read more... More about Foxconn , Iphone 7s , Rumors , Iphone 8 , and Apple

She may play a tech up-and-comer who gets sucked into the cult of a powerful Internet company in The Circle , but Emma Watson seems determined to not let her life imitate her art. During a recent chat with Jessica Chastain for Interview Magazine , the Beauty and the Beast star spoke about the pitfalls of maintaining an online presence in a social media-fixated world. It's a minefield! Technology is moving so fast right now, she said. Everyone is scrambling around trying to understand what it means to have an avatar, how to live our lives on the internet, what it means for privacy, for citizens of a political universe. I think that we're trying to find rules now, as we speak, and it's difficult. But, like everything, the internet is an incredibly powerful force that needs governingnot to restrict our freedom, but to protect people.

No, you will not one day take a flying car to work. Flying cars thrust back into the spotlight thanks to the unveiling of Larry Page's Kitty Hawk Flyer have long resided in the realm of science fiction. And, let's be real, will probably stay that way for the foreseeable future. No matter what the latest and richest tech CEO claims, possessing a single device that functions as both a car and a plane will only serve to make you the proud owner of a bad automobile and a worse aircraft. SEE ALSO: This personal helicopter is the motorcycle of the sky Because while yes, the two types of vehicles are both designed to transport people, they do it in fundamentally different ways (duh). Being good at one sort of precludes you from being excelling at the other. And there's the rub who's going to buy a janky flying car when a perfectly safe self-driving car will do (as it soon will).

There arent any speed limits or caps on downloads, meaning you can max out your connection. As well as this, you can link the platform up to other newsreader services for greater flexibility. Unfortunately, when it comes to the user interface, Altopia does look somewhat outdated. Theres no sophisticated browser app here, and instead you need a degree of tech knowledge to operate the platform. Thats not to say its overly difficult, but its fiddly, to say the least. Customer service and pricing As is the case with rivals like Newsgroupdirect , you can receive incentives if you get other people to sign up to Altopia. All they have to do is purchase an account and mention your email address or ID. Youll then receive a free month of service, and multiple free months can be obtained if youre particularly diligent in recruiting.

It's PC Gaming Week on TechRadar! Cream of Computex? As weve heard before , though, its more likely to be June, coinciding with Computex which starts on the last day of May, and runs into the first week of June being the likely launch platform. That would give some breathing space between the launch of the RX 500 series graphics cards (that have only advanced the current-generation Polaris tech) which has only just happened, and the release of Vega. Still, you never know in the world of technology; we might just see an earlier launch for the next-gen GPU. As we saw when the first details about Vega were unveiled at CES back at the start of the year, it boasts a next-generation compute engine, high-bandwidth cache and HBM2 video memory (which sports twice the bandwidth per pin compared to HBM). AMD says that in comparison to GDDR5 video RAM, HBM2s overall footprint is 50% smaller.
