BYD has set up social media channels for its new FangChengBao (Formula Leopard) brand, confirming that the first car, codenamed SF, will officially debut in June.

The Shenzhen-based automaker has always sold cars only under its BYD brand, but the company recently introduced three new sub-brands. First, in December 2021, BYD took control of Denza, a former joint venture with Daimler. In January 2023, the YangWang brand and the first hardcore SUV YangWang U8 were launched (in the new photo, the new items were shown side by side). The third brand is FangChengBao.

According to BYD, FangChengBao will be located between Denza and YangWang in the price range from 56 to 86 thousand dollars. All of BYD’s new sub-brands are in the premium segment in China, but Denza will be the cheapest and YangWang the most premium.

The length of the SF reaches 5 meters with a wheelbase of 2.8 meters. It will be an all-wheel drive hybrid SUV with 680 hp. with a power reserve of 1200 km (CLTC). It will be equipped with DiSus-P adaptive suspension.

The SF SUV will compete with the Mercedes-Benz G-Class in China and most likely also with the Mercedes-Benz EQG if BYD releases an all-electric version later.

In the first five months of the year, BYD sold 996,476 vehicles.

Robots are buying everything: that’s why living people don’t get iPhone 15

Robots are buying everything thats why living people dont get

New research from cybersecurity company Kasada claims resellers are using bots to pre-order iPhone 15 smartphones, ordering millions of dollars worth of goods from Apple’s website and carriers. This complicates the task for ordinary buyers and delays delivery times.

The whole situation allows resellers to profit from the initial rush of demand by reselling devices for hundreds of dollars more than the recommended retail price. Resellers have long been a problem during the iPhone launch days, going back to the iPhone 4.

As noted by Kasada, trading bots, also known as All-In-One or AIO bots, have repurposed from buying in-demand sneakers to placing orders for the iPhone 15. This is especially aggravating the situation with the most in-demand iPhone 15 Pro Max. Kasada cites the example of one of the bots that made more than 3,000 checks or orders for the iPhone 15.

AIO bots are so called because they control the entire purchasing process, from determining the availability of new products to placing them in the cart and completing the order. These “batch transactions” can take anywhere from 10 to 0.2 seconds.

As with retail sales, Apple and other companies are continually cracking down on this practice with tools designed to detect the use of bots. Resellers respond by improving their tools.

Current update of the OpenAI chatbot ChatGPT can now Google

The American company OpenAI has announced the release of a useful update to its generative artificial intelligence system, ChatGPT. According to the official blog, ChatGPT can search the web for the latest information, suggesting answers from “relevant and authoritative” sources.

The search is performed in the Microsoft Bing search engine. After receiving a response from the network, the user can click on the link and check the information provided. The feature, called Browse with Bing, is currently only open to those with Plus and Enterprise subscriptions, but the company says it will soon make it available to “all users.”

As the developers note, OpenAI has lifted the temporary restriction on data – previously, ChatGPT users had access to the amount of information until September 2021. Now the ChatGPT search engine can freely search for the latest information.

As a reminder, OpenAI added the ability to browse the internet to its iOS app ChatGPT at the end of June 2023, but quickly removed it. The reason turned out to be that users quickly found a loophole – the chatbot could be “persuaded” to provide paid content by entering the full URL.
