Amazon Web Services explains Wednesday outage

Within a few hours, the malfunctions began hitting customers of Amazon Web Services, the company’s cloud-computing unit. Customers of the Amazon-owned Ring security camera service couldn’t log in or watch video. Users struggled to operate their iRobot vacuum cleaners because the outage affect the iRobot Home App. And media companies, including The Washington Post (privately owned by Amazon chief executive Jeff Bezos), experienced publishing system outages.

Amazon acknowledged that the system failure was exacerbated by the co-dependencies its various services have on one another. The company had been trying to add capacity to its Amazon Kinesis service that customers use to process real-time data including video, audio and application logs. To resolve the issue, Amazon needed to restart a piece of its system it described as “many thousands of servers,” a lengthy process that had to be done gradually. But because other Amazon cloud services rely on Kinesis, including its

Tiny Asteroid Will Come Incredibly Close To Earth Wednesday

KEY POINTS

  • Asteroid 2020 VX4 will be almost as close to Earth as the moon when it makes its close approach Wednesday
  • The near-Earth asteroid measures 59 feet across and is not expected to hit the planet
  • The asteroid has not been included in the ESA’s Risk List

A 59-foot asteroid will pass by Earth this week — and it will get almost as close to the planet as the moon.

A near-Earth asteroid (NEA) identified as 2020 VX4 will harmlessly zip past Earth Wednesday at around 5:09 p.m. EST, according to NASA’s Center for Near-Earth Object Studies (CNEOS). But while asteroids passing by the planet is nothing new, this space rock differs from most NEAs due to its proximity.

Asteroid 2020 VX4 will come incredibly close to Earth when it zips past, flying by at an estimated distance of 250,700 miles (403,000 kilometers) from the planet’s surface, according to

Google is launching a native version of Chrome for Apple’s Arm Macs on Wednesday

Google plans to release a version of Chrome that will run natively on Apple’s new Macs with Arm-based processors on Wednesday, according to Mark Chang, a Chrome product manager. Google actually began rolling the new version out Tuesday, but paused the rollout because that version may have crashed unexpectedly.

In theory, a native version of the notoriously resource-hungry browser might run more efficiently on Apple’s Arm-based computers. In our reviews of the MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, and Mac mini equipped with the new M1 chip, though, we found that the version of Chrome built for Intel chips already runs well on Apple’s new Macs, so hopefully this native version runs even better.

When the update is available, you be able to pick which version of Chrome to download from the browser’s website, according to Elvin Hu, an interaction designer on the

ULA delays spy satellite launch to Wednesday from Florida

ORLANDO, Fla., Nov. 6 (UPI) — United Launch Alliance plans to try again to send a Department of Defense spy satellite into orbit from Florida on Wednesday.

Liftoff on an Atlas V rocket is planned for 5:22 p.m. EST from Complex 41 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.

The launch company had planned a Sunday evening launch, but said Friday that the approach of a storm prompted a change.

“Due to impending weather from Tropical Depression Eta, we are rolling the Atlas V rocket carrying the NROL-101 mission … back to secure the payload and vehicle,” ULA said in an update on its website.

A problem with the rocket’s propellant fuel system foiled a previous attempt the preceding Wednesday evening, and a problem with environmental controls for the satellite forced a delay the day before, ULA said.

The Defense Department’s National Reconnaissance Office says little about any of its satellites,

Tech chief executives to defend key law in front of U.S. Senate panel on Wednesday

By David Shepardson and Nandita Bose

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The chief executives of Twitter Inc <TWTR.N>, Facebook <FB.O> and Alphabet Inc <GOOGL.O> will tell U.S. lawmakers at a hearing on Wednesday that a federal law protecting internet companies is crucial to free expression on the internet, according to written testimonies from the companies seen by Reuters.

Section 230, a provision of the 1996 Communications Decency Act, shields technology companies from liability for user-generated content and allows them to remove lawful but objectionable posts. It has come under heavy criticism from Republican President Donald Trump and both Democratic and Republican lawmakers who have been concerned about Big Tech’s content-moderation decisions.

Twitter Chief Executive Jack Dorsey will tell the Senate Commerce Committee on Wednesday that eroding the foundation of Section 230 “could collapse how we communicate on the Internet, leaving only a small number of giant and well-funded technology companies.”

Dorsey urged
