Apple Pulls The Plug On Their Electric Car

Apple has officially pulled the plug on its ambitious electric car project, a decade after it first set wheels in motion to break into the automotive industry.

The project, known internally as Project Titan, faced its share of challenges and uneven progress, mirroring the broader auto industry’s recent cutbacks in electric vehicle investments due to declining demand.

The cancellation comes at a time when the electric vehicle market is experiencing a slowdown, attributed to high interest rates and a dip in consumer demand for pricier vehicles.

This industry-wide trend has prompted automakers, including Tesla, to reassess their investment strategies, with some shifting focus towards hybrid models over fully electric ones.

Tesla’s Elon Musk responded to the news with a short post:

Apple plans to reassign several Project Titan employees to its artificial intelligence division. This pivot to AI, a field where Apple has been relatively quiet compared to giants like Alphabet and Microsoft, may signal a renewed focus on competing at a platform level with next-generation technologies.

Microsoft Paint With Midjourney Capabilities

Microsoft is revitalizing its classic Paint app by introducing an AI feature akin to the capabilities of the popular Midjourney image generator.

This new feature, rumored to be called “LiveCanvas” promises to offer users the ability to generate art from text prompts in various styles, ranging from paintwork and photorealism to pixel art.

The speculation stems from a post by the recognized Windows leaker, PhantomOfEarth, on X (formerly Twitter), hinting at a tool reminiscent of Leonardo.Ai’s Real-Time Canvas, which animates sketches into dynamic artworks.

This development is particularly noteworthy as Microsoft Paint had languished for years without significant updates.

Unlike its existing basic AI-powered image generation capabilities, which have been described as average, the proposed LiveCanvas feature aims to offer a more engaging and creative experience.

It suggests a scenario where users can sketch ideas in one window and watch as AI technology enhances and brings their creations to life in another, essentially acting as an artistic auto-fill.
