First off-grid solar-powered EV charger deployed in Puerto Rico in wake of rising natural disasters

Peter Johnson writing for electrek Beam’s EV ARC chargers can generate and store their own electricity by harnessing renewable energy from the sun. The charging infrastructure is designed to handle extreme weather with flood-proof capabilities up to 9.5 feet and wind resistance of 125 mph. I wonder how long this takes to charge. I assume it charges up a portable battery over time and then uses that to charge a vehicle.

We live in a society not an economy

In-app browsers that act as keyloggers

Jason Snell writing for Six Colors Introducing InAppBrowser.com, a simple tool to list the JavaScript commands executed by the iOS app rendering the page. Krause’s tool lets anyone investigate what might be leaking through in-app browsers.

TikTok, in particular, is monitoring all keyboard inputs and taps.

Bill C-11 Enters a Danger Zone: Government Shifts from Ignoring Witnesses on User Content Regulation to Dismissing Criticisms as "Misinformation" - Michael Geist

Michael Geist writing on his blog This past week was a bad week for democratic governance and Bill C-11. The decision to race through over 100 amendments without public disclosure or debate ran counter to basic democratic norms as the public will never know what changes were proposed in those secret amendments. Now government MPs are resorting to claims of misinformation for testimony they heard directly from one-third of witnesses. The harm that causes will last long after some extra Netflix money is added to the Canadian system.
