Chinese search provider Baidu follows Google with a ‘highly autonomous car’ of its own

Chinese search engine Baidu is widely known as “the Google of China,” and it looks like the company plans to go toe-to-toe against Google with a self-driving car of its own. According to statements attributed to Kai Yu, a deputy director of a Baidu research group focused on machine learning, the company is working on “a highly autonomous car.” Yu tells The Next Web that it’s “an intelligent assistant collecting data from road situations and then operating locally,” adding, “We don’t call this a driverless car.”

Wii Mini follows Canadian debut with UK launch on March 22nd

wii mini

The previously Canada-only Wii Mini is launching in the UK on March 22nd. Nintendo hasn’t yet announced a price for the console — which sold for $ 99.99 CA at launch in Canada — but the news is surprising enough on its own, as the company hadn’t indicated that it would be bringing the pared-down console to other markets any time soon. In November, an executive told CVG that Nintendo had “no plans to launch it in the UK,” preferring to focus on the Wii U. A statement from Nintendo of Canada’s Matt Ryan was less definitive but still noncommittal, suggesting Canada could be a test market.

The Wii Mini, which was first revealed in late November, trades some core features for a lower price point. Notably, it lacks an internet connection…

Tempo for iPhone follows Mailbox’s lead, implements reservation system to handle ‘continued demand’

Tempo lede

When Mailbox for iPhone launched last week, it did so with a somewhat unusual “reservation” system. The team behind Mailbox was only letting in a limited number of users at a time, so unless you registered early you were stuck with a countdown of how many people were ahead of you in line to get access to the app. That didn’t stop Mailbox from suffering a pretty major outage yesterday, but the makers of new “smart calendar” app Tempo are implementing a similar system. The Tempo team submitted a new version of the app to Apple today, and it’ll include a reservation system. Users can sign up for a position in the reservation line, and Tempo will email the users once the app is usable.

Reservations are the new fail whale

Until that new app…

Hulu follows Netflix’s lead, launches dedicated Kids channel with 43 commercial-free shows

Hulu Kids

Hulu has just announced a dedicated Hulu Kids section to highlight its child-friendly content, a move that sounds a lot like the recently-launched Netflix “Just for Kids” service. While it doesn’t sound like there’s any new content here, Hulu Plus subscribers can now access all 43 of the service’s commercial-free kids shows, with special categories like “Dino Time” or “Cartoon Favorites”; there’s also content grouped by suggested age range as well as network. Unlike Netflix’s Just for Kids,” Hulu Kids will first be debuting on the web and through an update to the service’s PS3 app — but there’s no word on when it’ll be added to the Hulu Plus iOS and Android apps. Since Netflix’s kid-focused service is only available on the iPad for…

Microsoft follows new xx album around the world in Internet Explorer promotion

Internet Explorer/The xx promotion

In a joint promotion for Internet Explorer and British band The xx, Microsoft has created a site tracking the progress of the band’s new album, Coexist, around the world. Executed using HTML5, it offers a free stream of the album — set to be released on September 11th — and encourages listeners to share the link via Twitter, Facebook, and email. Each share is tracked and, when a user gives permission for the site to access their physical location, their point is plotted on a map. While the site is designed to promote Internet Explorer, it works on most modern browsers, including Chrome and Firefox — for fans seeking a stream without the added baggage, the album is also available in full on the NPR website.
