YouTube implements stricter requirements for partners

Creators part of Preferred get more per click than their counterparts and have bigger earning potential. The program was recently thrust into the spotlight when it booted popular YouTuber Logan Paul from its roster. Paul was slammed for posting a video showing him and his friends laughing and making jokes upon coming across a body in Aokigahara, Japan's "suicide forest," and claiming that his video was meant to raise mental health awareness. Google will finish its manual review of all Preferred channels in the US by mid-February and worldwide by the end of March.

In addition, YouTube has changed the eligibility requirements channels need to be meet in order to earn money from the platform. Starting today, creators can only be part of the program if they have 4,000 hours of watchtime within the past 12 months and 1,000 subscribers. YouTube says it came upon those new thresholds "after thorough analysis and conversations" with creators. Last year, it slapped a 10,000 channel view minimum requirement on creators who want to apply for YouTube Partnership in order to prevent channels uploading stolen content and low-quality videos from making money. But it's "been clear over the last few months that [it needs] a higher standard," YouTube said in its announcement.

Even older channels already earning money on the platform will be affected, though YouTube is giving them until February 20th. They'll be dropped from the program if they fail to meet the requirements next month, but they can apply again later. The company knows, however, that the new requirements aren't enough to keep bad actors out. (Toy Freaks, which it had banned for disturbing content targeting kids, had over 8.5 million subscribers, for instsance.) It promised to "continue to use signals like community strikes, spam, and other abuse flags to ensure [it's] protecting [its] creator community."

Dallas Mavericks are the latest pro team to accept cryptocurrency

The decision isn't coming out of the blue. While Cuban warned that bitcoin was in a bubble back in June, he also invested in it (not to mention a blockchain fund and Unikrn's digital tokens) before 2017 was over. He sees enough of a future in cryptocurrency that it only makes sense for his team to support it. You might not see other teams or leagues rushing to follow suit, but it does represent a vote of confidence for the emerging technology.

Samsung designed a 2018 Winter Olympics edition Galaxy Note 8

Samsung will distribute 4,000 devices to competing athletes and staff members before the games begin in early February. All Paralympic Winter Games participants will also get cases that feature the Paralympic Games logo to go with their new phones.

Since the company has been an Olympic partner for decades, a special edition for the event is par for the course, especially now that the event is being held in its home country. While it's unfortunate that this version is exclusively available to Olympics athletes and staff, you may want to cross your fingers and hope that Samsung eventually decides to sell it. The company released the 2016 Olympics edition Galaxy S7 Edge to the public, after all, though it only sold a couple of thousand units worldwide.

Video offers peek at ultra-wide Large Synoptic Survey Telescope

As far as the LSST has come, it has a long way to go. It won't see engineering first light (that is, first actual use) until 2019, and its 10-year survey won't start until January 2022. This is more a preview of what astronomy will be like in the next decade. Between this and the Giant Magellan Telescope, scientists will capture an unprecedented level of detail that promises to reveal elements of the universe that just weren't detectable before.

Teach valuable STEM skills with electronic papercraft noisemakers

Dubbed "Papier Machine", this interactive booklet is actually a compendium of six electronic toys that you can tear out, assemble and play music with. Each page is silkscreened with conductive silver ink (similar to the stuff used in touchscreen-enabled gloves) and the entire kit includes everything else you'll need to complete each activity: button cell batteries, a tiny sound chip, piezoelectric elements and so on.

With the Papier Machine book, you'll be able to create a basic working keyboard, race magnetic marbles around a gyroscopic racetrack, build a paper wind chime that plays evolving electronica melodies, and a whole bunch more. The booklet is currently an ongoing Kickstarter project (having hit $34,000 of its $55,000 funding goal as of the time of this post's publication with 33 days left). Each kit is going for €35 ($43) as part of the project's early bird pricing. Should it fully fund, the company hopes to begin shipping product to backers starting July, 2018.

Lyft opens its ride-booking Concierge service to all businesses

After a while, Lyft forged partnerships with more companies, including JetBlue, CareMore and GoGoGrandparent. JetBlue, for instance, can call a Lyft to offer their passengers or crew a seamless journey, while GoGoGrandparent can hail a ride for the seniors who call their number on a landline. Rotor Zen, a San Diego-based helicopter tour operator, also uses the service to get guests from hotels and to drive them back after their tour.

Now, Concierge is open to any company, so long as they sign up for a Lyft Business account and add a payment method. They can hail almost any type of Lyft ride for employees and clients alike. It's worth taking note, however, that the companies will be able to track passengers' journeys in real time. That's ideal for businesses like GoGoGrandparent, so they can track their elderly customers. But those who don't appreciate being watched by their employers might want to call a ride on their own and just ask for reimbursement.

London’s new electric taxis scuppered by faulty sensor

LEVC, formerly known as The London Taxi Company, is working with TfL and third-party meter suppliers on a solution. It's unclear exactly which component is causing the issue, however. A spokesperson explained that it's causing the taxis to deliver fewer "pulses" than normal, which in turn produces low, inaccurate fares. (Not a bad problem for London citizens, but I'm sure taxi drivers wouldn't be impressed.) LEVC now expects to fulfil its first taxi orders sometime next week. Only then can it usher in the greener, tech-savvy era of transportation mayor Sadiq Khan has been longing for.

The new car has a 1.3 litre, three-cylinder petrol engine that acts as a generator for a battery pack and electric motor. As a pure EV, it can travel up to 70 miles on a single charge, but with a full tank of petrol that rises to 400 miles. Its green credentials, then, are limited, but it does meet the zero-remissions capable" requirement that was introduced on January 1st. London's air quality is notoriously bad and it's hoped the new cabs will improve public health as older, traditional gas-guzzlers are switched out.

The TX comes with a contemporary interior too. It has onboard WiFi, USB charging and support for contactless payments — a requirement in London since 2016. Drivers also have access to a sat-nav with information about traffic congestion and charger points. The latter will be crucial as the city gradually expands its EV-refueling infrastructure. Steve McNamara, general secretary of the Licensed Taxi Drivers' Association, told the Guardian that there is "still nowhere near the number of rapid charge points" required in central London. Tfl has promised to install 300 by 2020, but the slow roll out could limit the initial interest from drivers.

There's also the issue of price. At £55,600 — including an electric vehicle grant of £7,500 — it's hardly an impulse buy. Though running costs are lower, the initial cost is considerably higher than a traditional diesel model. That's a problem for an industry that is already steeling itself against ride-hailing services such as Uber. At the moment people are very hesitant," McNamara added. "We've got to pay £12,000 more for a vehicle that we don't know the reliability or durability of, at a time when the market is being squeezed by that company [Uber]." The TX has an uphill battle, then, even once LEVC has fixed its mysterious vehicle-to-meter interface glitch.

Microsoft’s 15-inch Surface Book 2 comes to 17 new countries

The 15-inch model is particularly interesting as a graphics and gaming unit, since it comes with a nicely powerful NVIDIA GTX 1060 graphics card (the 13-incher has NVIDIA GTX 1050 graphics). Though you might be tempted to buy it as a gaming machine, know that the power supply isn't enough to sustain a charge if you're running games like Destiny 2, however. Microsoft has yet to say how or whether it will rectify that rather weird issue.

The original Surface Book suffered from power management and other bugs, but Microsoft told Engadget last year that it learned from that experience for the Surface Book 2. In fact, Microsoft fixed nearly everything we didn't like about the last one, strengthening the hinge, improving the screen and making it work better as a tablet. With an eight-gen Intel CPU and NVIDIA 1060 graphics, it's certainly powerful, and incredibly light for a hybrid laptop/tablet at 4.2 pounds.

As mentioned, pre-orders start today for the 15-inch model in Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom. Over the next few months, both the 13- and 15-inch models will go on sale in Bahrain, China, Hong Kong, India, Italy, Korea, Kuwait, Malaysia, Oman, Portugal, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Spain, Taiwan, Thailand and the United Arab Emirates. Pricing starts at $1,499 for the 13-inch model and $2,499 for the 15-incher.
