Water Cooler / The Cedars Lodge & Spa in Hendersonville, N.C.
« on: July 31, 2020, 10:17:07 AM »
Someday, years from now, a resident will wake up in their luxury condominium at developer Gregg Covin’s The Cedars Lodge & Spa in Hendersonville, N.C. They’ll make breakfast on the island in their big kitchen and sit on their heated balcony. They’ll walk out of their private entrance and use an elevator that serves only three other units. They’ll work out in a series of small exercise rooms and gather with friends at a restaurant in a glass atrium.

Hopefully, Covid-19 will be a distant memory. But every aspect of these homes will have been shaped by the pandemic.

A trending search in our data for “myocardial infarction” shows how Google has piled up its products at the top. It returned:

    Google’s dictionary definition.
    A “people also ask” box that expanded to answer related questions without leaving the search results page.
    A “knowledge panel,” which is an abridged encyclopedia entry with various links.
    And a “related conditions” carousel leading to various new Google searches for other diseases.

All of these appeared before search results by WebMD, Harvard University, and Medscape. In fact, a user would have to scroll nearly halfway down the page—about 42 percent—before reaching the first “organic” result in that search.

Edward Snowden revealed the agency’s phone-record tracking program. But thanks to “precomputed contact chaining,” that database was much more powerful than anyone knew.

Researchers in Australia have achieved a world record internet speed of 44.2 terabits per second, allowing users to download 1,000 HD movies in a single second.

A team from Monash, Swinburne and RMIT universities used a “micro-comb” optical chip containing hundreds of infrared lasers to transfer data across existing communications infrastructure in Melbourne.
