Microsoft releases ARM beta version of Edge Chromium for Surface Pro X
Microsoft is allowing Surface Pro X owners to get access to early native ARM copies of its Edge Chromium browser today. The software giant is making the ARM version of Edge available in the daily Canary channel, and it will mean that devices like the Surface Pro X will gain access to a more capable and more performant browser. Microsoft released the Surface Pro X earlier this month with the older Edge browser preinstalled, but owners have so far had to use an x86 copy of Chrome or Edge Chromium in emulation mode. This hits battery life and performance on ARM-powered devices significantly. The Verge has been testing early Canary versions of the ARM64 Edge Chromium release, and it’s far better for performance and battery life than using Chrome in emulation. We’ve seen big improvements in switching tabs, rendering web content, and scrolling speeds. While the speed improvements are obvious, this is an early copy of Edge Chromium for ARM and tabs do occasionally crash. Still, it’s worth trying out if you own a Surface Pro X. While the ARM64 version enters into the Canary channel today, Microsoft revealed last week at Ignite that a final version of Edge Chromium won’t launch on ARM in time for the January 15th release. Microsoft will make Edge Chromium available on Windows and macOS in January, with an ARM64 release to follow. You can download the ARM64 Edge Canary version over at Microsoft’s Edge Insider site.

US budget deficit jumps above $1 trillion for the first time in more than 6 years
AP Photo/Jacquelyn Martin The gap between federal expenditures and receipts grew 34% from a year earlier to $134 billion in October. Lawmakers typically have more tools to reduce the national debt when the economy is in a solid place. But recent legislation, including sweeping tax cuts that took effect last year, has continued to take it the opposite direction. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. The US budget deficit continued to swell at the start of the fiscal year, as government spending outpaced revenue despite solid economic growth. The gap between federal expenditures and receipts grew 34% from a year earlier to $134 billion in October, the Treasury Department said in its monthly budget statement Wednesday.

Facebook includes Instagram in its transparency report for the first time
Illustration by Alex Castro / The Verge Facebook is including Instagram in its transparency report for the first time, releasing data on how the company moderates content related to child exploitation, self-harm, terrorist propaganda, and drug and firearm sales. Notably absent from the report is information on how fake accounts, hate speech, and violent content are regulated on the photo-sharing app. The information is part of Facebook’s quarterly “community standards” transparency report, which tracks the company’s ongoing efforts to moderate content on the platform. The last report, released in May, showed a sharp increase in the number of abusive accounts on Facebook, and a downtick in the number of posts containing violent content the company detected and removed. The addition of Instagram to the report is critical as misinformation about the 2020 election continues to spread on social media. Last month, the left-leaning human rights group Avaaz reported that stories containing misinformation were viewed almost 158.9 million times on the social network, continuing to spread even after they were proven to be false. The news was worrisome as the company has invested heavily in AI systems to detect misleading information since the 2016 election. The addition of Instagram to the report is critical as misinformation about the 2020 election continues to spread on social media It also brings into sharper focus the specific danger that misinformation on Instagram presents. In 2016, Russian trolls posted more than 3,000 ads across both Facebook and Instagram. As memes and photos become an even larger component of election interference efforts, Instagram has become a prime target ahead of the 2020 election. The platform also has fewer resources to fight misinformation than Facebook, making the ongoing spread of fake news far more likely. It’s unfortunate that Facebook left out information related to the proliferation of fake accounts on Instagram, particularly since Facebook did share that information on its namesake platform. On Facebook, fake accounts continue to make up about 5 percent of monthly active users and the company catches the majority ”within minutes” of when they register. Facebook is apparently getting better at detecting self-harm content on Instagram before it’s able to spread, the report says. Since May, it has removed about 845,000 pieces of suicide-related content, 79 percent of which it was able to proactively find. Facebook is apparently getting better at detecting self-harm content on Instagram Across the board, the company is better at finding content on Facebook that violates its community standards before people have to report it than on Instagram. For example, while Facebook says it catches 99 percent of content related to the sexual exploitation of children on the social network, it catches 94.6 percent on Instagram. Facebook’s ability to detect and take down posts hawking drugs or firearms is also more impressive on Facebook. Since May, the company says it has removed about 2.3 million pieces of content related to firearm sales on the platform, 93.8 percent of which it was able to find before users. Compare that to 58,600 pieces of similar content it was able to find and remove on Instagram, 91.3 of which it was able to catch before users. As Facebook continues to draw criticism for refusing to moderate some content — notably, political ads — the transparency report is an important reminder of where the company is willing to crack down. Next time, the report might even include critical information on how fake accounts are doing on the platform, as the 2020 election ramps up.

Fortnite’s Android installer is now a launcher for Epic mobile games
A few weeks after the launch of Fortnite’s second chapter, developer Epic made a seemingly minor change: the Fortnite installer for Android was updated to become the Epic Games App. What was once a tool for keeping Fortnite updated has now transformed into a way for the company to distribute its own mobile games. Today, Epic is launching its second game through the app, a cross-platform title called Battle Breakers, which is available on PC, iOS, and Android through both Samsung’s Galaxy Store and the Epic Games App. The game itself is a hero-collecting role-playing game. The premise is that ”monsters from space trapped the world’s greatest heroes in technomagic crystal.” Players can save and collect these characters to use in more than 1,000 dungeons, and Epic says that Battle Breakers progress will work “seamlessly” across mobile and PC, much like Fortnite. Battle Breakers also appears to have similar monetization as the battle royale hit, with both an in-game store for buying characters and a battle pass. Epic says that the game was “built as a passion project by a small team” at the company. The Epic Games Store first launched last December, and at the time, the company expressed interest in eventually bringing it to mobile. Right now, Epic says that the Android app is explicitly for first-party games — i.e., those made by Epic — but it’s hard not to envision a future where that eventually changes. Epic was able to get the Fortnite installer on to millions of phones by making it a requirement for playing the game on Android. By rebranding the app, it now has a powerful tool for distributing games on the platform. Epic co-founder Tim Sweeney has openly expressed his dislike of mobile app stores in the past, particularly the 30 percent cut that both Google and Apple take from sales. “The 30 percent store tax is a high cost in a world where game developers’ 70 percent must cover all the cost of developing, operating, and supporting their games,” Sweeney told The Verge last August when it was first revealed that Fortnite wouldn’t be available through Google Play. “30 percent is disproportionate to the cost of the services these stores perform, such as payment processing, download bandwidth, and customer service.”

A woman's stalker compromised her car's app, giving him the ability to track and immobilize it
An Australian woman's creepy, violent ex-boyfriend hacked her phone using stalkerware, then used that, along with her car's VIN number, to hack the remote control app for her car (possibly Landrover's Incontrol app), which allowed him to track her location, stop and start her car, and adjust the car's temperature. It's a great leap forward in spousal abuse, leapfrogging the analog days in which abusive partners had to be content with using odometer counts to track how far their victims were traveling. Now, with in-car apps -- no better secured than other apps -- abusive partners and ex-partners can follow them around in realtime and even immobilize their vehicles. Stalkerware is now a factor in the majority of spousal abuse cases; since stalkerware compromises mobile devices, and since these devices can be used to control a wide range of other devices (vehicles, thermostats, medical implants, door locks, etc), an abuser can leverage their stalkerware infections to turn their victims' lives into digital Kafka novels. She didn’t know it then, she said in court, but that mid-evening break-in was far from the first time he had stalked her — he’d been doing it for months, in real time, authorities said. The man, whom she dated for six months, allegedly weaponized simple technology and smartphone apps that allowed him to remotely stop and start her car, control the vehicle’s windows and track her constantly. “I am still trying to come to terms with the scope of violation and trauma I have experienced,” she said.

America’s most notorious white nationalist says he knew Stephen Miller ‘quite well’ while they were members of a Duke University conservative club
Win McNamee/Getty Images White House senior adviser Stephen Miller attended Duke University as an undergraduate student during the same time as Richard Spencer, a self-proclaimed white nationalist and propagator of the term, "The Alt-right."  In an interview with Andrew Marantz of The New Yorker for his book, "Antisocial," Spencer said he and Miller were both members of a small club called the Duke Conservative Union and said they knew each other "quite well."  Spencer has called for "peaceful ethnic cleansing," and has reinforced prominent Neo-Nazi arguments.  Troves of emails between Miller and Breitbart editors have renewed past claims characterizing Miller as a white nationalist.  Miller plays a key role in drafting President Trump's immigration policies and writing some of his most inflammatory speeches.  Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Democratic lawmakers and White House critics are demanding Stephen Miller's resignation after a trove of emails released this week appear to show his support for white nationalist ideas. The emails, released by the Southern Poverty Law Center, show Miller's communications with editors at the far-right website Breitbart and have renewed calls from critics who have used the terms "white nationalist" and "white supremacist" to describe the 34-year-old.

Nike finally made Sabrina Ionescu jerseys, and they sold out in hours
Yes, it’s good Nike made them but they clearly did not make enough. Sabrina Ionescu may be the most popular college basketball player across both the men’s and women’s game right now. She’s back for her senior season in Oregon and is the runaway No. 1 pick for the WNBA draft next year where she’ll head to Brooklyn to play for the Liberty. Her team also just beat Team USA in a scrimmage. She’s kind of a big deal. But until this week, it was impossible to buy her jersey anywhere. Yes, Nike sells plenty of college football and men’s basketball jerseys but a jersey for Ionescu did not exist. And so like most things, Ionescu publicly roasted Nike and got them to do the thing they should have done a long time ago. They started to sell Oregon No. 20 jerseys. The Sabrina Ionescu jersey timeline This all started on November 5th when Ionescu herself tweeted this out: Why is @Nike not making @OregonWBB jerseys yet!?!? I’m running out of excuses — Sabrina Ionescu (@sabrina_i20) November 5, 2019 Then, magically, on November 9th, Sabrina tweeted that the jerseys would be available soon. It’s amazing how Nike could turn this around so fast. It’s almost like they should have already been doing this, and that they even have the resources to handle it! Thank you @Nike, what an honor! Hoping this is the start of many more female athletes being represented! #GoDucks— Sabrina Ionescu (@sabrina_i20) November 9, 2019 On the 11th, the official Oregon Ducks store tweeted at 5:38pm EST that the jerseys were available. They got a response from a user at 7:40pm saying they were sold out. I have no idea how many jerseys Nike made available and that information is not public but it was clearly not enough. Tell your friends and tell them to tell their friends!! #20 jerseys are here!— The Duck Store (@TheDuckStore) November 11, 2019 But in more concerning news, it appears Nike won’t restock the white jerseys. Either Nike is incredibly lame or they’re going to make the upcoming green jersey endlessly available. I hope it’s the latter but I won’t get my hopes up. We are not expecting another shipment of the white jerseys, however, we’re anticipating receiving the green jerseys later in the season! Stay tuned!— The Duck Store (@TheDuckStore) November 13, 2019 We haven’t even gotten to the part where Ionescu will get 0% of profit from this but hey, I guess we have to fight one battle at a time. Women’s sports are incredibly underserved from a merchandise perspective. Every season WNBA fans beg for more merchandise and jersey options but aren’t given much to work with. During the 2019 World Cup, the Women’s Home jersey became the No. 1 soccer jersey ever sold on within a season. Meanwhile, the NWSL is planning expansion based on the popularity of merchandise and sales. These numbers show the interest is there in case after case. If Nike believes in equality and change like it claims, it needs to start stepping up its support for women’s sports.

I went to the most affordable Michelin-starred restaurant in New York City and was blown away
Hollis Johnson/Insider Many restaurants that receive one or more stars in the Michelin guide can be expensive and inaccessible for most people. However, not all of the restaurants follow that model. Jeju Noodle Bar, a Korean restaurant that specializes in ramyun noodles, is one of the most affordable Michelin-starred restaurants in New York City, where a full meal could cost less than $40.  Insider sat down with Douglas Kim, the chef and owner of Jeju Noodle Bar, to talk about Korean ramyun, receiving a Michelin star, and what it takes to open a restaurant.  Visit Insider's homepage for more stories.  Chef Douglas Kim, 41, has helmed the ship at Jeju Noodle Bar since he opened it in September 2017. He started cooking in 1999, and cut his teeth at big-name restaurants including Bouley, Zuma, and Nobu. However, that's not what Kim wanted to talk about when I sat down with him before dinner service on Halloween — nor did he want to talk about his time in the kitchens at any of the other Michelin-starred restaurants he's worked at, including Chef's Table at Brooklyn Fare and Per Se.  Instead, Kim wanted to talk about noodles.Jeju Noodle Bar is a New York City restaurant located on the corner of Greenwich Avenue and Christopher Street in Manhattan's West Village. Hollis Johnson/Insider The restaurant is in the former space of Nighthawks, a restaurant that tipped its hat to the famous Edward Hopper painting by the same name. While the exact location of where the painting is based off is debated, the similarity is undeniable. A painting done in the same style as Nighthawks, but with a Jeju twist, hangs inside the restaurant. Hollis Johnson/Insider "Edward Hopper said that Nighthawks was inspired by 'a restaurant on New York's Greenwich Avenue where two streets meet,'" The Art Institute of Chicago says on its website. "But the image — with its carefully constructed composition and lack of narrative — has a timeless, universal quality that transcends its particular locale." The interior of Jeju Noodle Bar is modern and well-lit, and features ample seating at the bar and tables. Hollis Johnson/Insider As you walk through the doors and the large curtain used to keep the heat in, you're greeted by a host at a podium who seats you. The restaurant does take some reservations, but according to its website, only "very limited reservations" are available on RESY and Opentable.  See the rest of the story at Business InsiderSee Also:Powerful side-by-side portraits show people over 100 years old next to their younger selves13 horror films coming out in 2020 that scary-movie buffs can look forward toInterior designers reveal the 10 decorating rules you should never break
