Friday: Electric Fiat 500, Bezos yacht, media virus & Rewe without paying

While the New Fiat 500e turns out to be a modern electric car for the city with low consumption, Amazon founder and multi-billionaire Jeff Bezos has a three-master built according to a new book. The Max Planck Institute for Human Development, on the other hand, has calculated a connection between SARS-CoV-2 infections and social media.

Apple warns Windows 10 users that it will soon no longer be possible to synchronize contacts and calendars locally with the iPhone and recommends the cloud. Rewe, on the other hand, recommends shopping only with the app and without paying at the checkout. This is now being tested in Cologne. The most important of the day in brief.

After the Fiat 500e had lost money as the electric version of the classic Fiat 500, now comes the New Fiat 500 on the market. Exclusively without a combustion engine. So much becomes clear after a few kilometers: This is not just a retro car, but a really good electric car. In the test, the New Fiat 500e proves to be a modern electric car for the city with low consumption.

Jeff Bezos has not yet been able to test his new luxury yacht. According to an upcoming book publication, the three-master, 127 meters long, is still being built. In addition, a “Beiyacht” is to come with a helicopter landing pad. Bezos’ partner Lauren Sanchez have taken a flight license and Bezos also took flight lessons in order to quickly reach the alleged luxury yacht.

How politicians and decision makers die Reaching people during a pandemicshould be carefully considered, according to the Max Planck Institute for Human Development. The head of the research group explains: “In the social media, the mask was quickly reinterpreted as a political statement and used for polarization.” He sees a connection between SARS-CoV-2 infections and social media.

The relationship between iTunes on PCs and Apple’s own iPhone, however, is cutting down. Apple warns Windows 10 users that it will soon no longer be possible to synchronize contacts and calendars locally with the iPhone and iPad. The function for comparing appointment and address data is “out of date” and “will be removed in future versions of iTunes”. The cloud is recommended for iPhone sync for contacts and calendars.

A completely different kind of recommendation comes from the supermarket chain Rewe. She relies on a system in which the customers can shop without paying at the checkout to have to. To do this, they need a smartphone app with which they can log into a special entrance barrier. Then they can take all the products they want from the shelves, pack them up and finally just walk out of the market. The “Pick & Go” technology used by Rewe from Trigo Vision for shopping without paying at the checkout is now being tested in Cologne.
