City of Santa Barbara beaches posted a 48-hour shark advisory Thursday.

Apple & The Rock TEAM UP!

FOX News

Known as "The Rock x Siri Dominate The Day," the ad sees Johnson call up a Lyft car, fly a plane to Rome, appear at a fashion show and more, all using the iPhone 7. In June, it announced Siri would be part of its new HomePod speaker, slated for release later this year. As part of iOS 11, Apple is adding more functionality to Siri as well, including translating languages and finding news articles on Apple News to topics you searched for on Safari, Apple's mobile web browser. By calling it a movie (and later reversing himself), Johnson may have revealed more about Apple's plans for original content, according to analysts.


Lyft's BIG announcement

FOX News

There may be no need to tip your Lyft driver in Boston later this year -- because there may not be a driver. The ride-hailing company said Friday it will introduce driverless cars to its Beantown fleet later this year -- before expanding the program to other cities. Driverless cars will be chosen for particular customers by Lyft depending on traffic, weather, route and time of day, the company said. As the driverless car program expands and becomes more battle tested -- and accepted by passengers -- Lyft said it will still have a need for "drivers."

Steve the autonomous security robot made international headlines earlier this week after he accidentally toppled into a fountain while on duty at the Washington Harbour complex in Washington, D.C. Left submerged and useless after water flooded his vital components (which is what tends to happen when land-based robots come into contact with liquids), a severely sodden Steve was hauled from the pool and returned to his maker for checks. The company, a Silicon Valley-based outfit called Knightscope, has been developing its 6-foot, 400-pound K5 robot cop since 2013. When functioning properly, the sensor- and camera-equipped K5 works alongside human security personnel and is programmed to spot suspicious characters or behavior. It also released a photo (above) showing another K5 standing forlornly, if robots can stand forlornly, at a memorial for Steve.

Just one week after the sheriff's department in Cecil County, Md., got its brand new drone up and running, it was asked to investigate a case of stolen construction equipment. So the Cecil County Sheriff sent his Typhoon H Pro to investigate. The sheriff's department in Somerset County, N.J., hopes its drones could help it find missing people. "Years ago, when we had people wander off, we would bring out the rescue department, the fire department, fire department volunteers, K-9 if we had it and we'd search and search and search and never find the person," said Somerset County Sheriff Frank Provensano.


Blue state GOP gov digs in as Dems vow takedown - Kamala Harris spends big with media firm that boosted Bernie Sanders' national profile

FOX News

"The latest polling that we have shows about 6 percent of the people in Maryland strongly disapprove of the job I'm doing," Hogan told Fox News, during a recent event in voter-rich Montgomery County. Roughly half the state's 3.9 million voters are registered Democrats; Republicans haven't controlled the General Assembly since the early 1900s; the last GOP senator was elected to Congress in 1970; and a Democrat has been governor in roughly 42 of the past 49 years. "If Democrats are raring to steal one back from Trump, then Maryland is ripe for the picking," said Maryland Republican Party official Rob Carter, who suggested recent polling data shows Democrats in the state are "as strong as ever, even a little bit stronger." "But you have to show up and have a message that appeals to voters," said Edwards, elected to four terms with an average 79 percent of the general election vote before losing a 2016 Senate bid.

"War for the Planet of the Apes" took down "Spider-Man: Homecoming" at the North American box office, opening with an estimated $56.5 million in ticket sales. But director Matt Reeves' "War for the Planet of the Apes" pulled away thanks to strong reviews for the third installment of the rebooted "Apes" franchise. Five of the top six at the box office ("Apes," ''Homecoming," ''Baby Driver," ''The Big Sick" and "Wonder Woman") boast Rotten Tomatoes rankings of 92 or better, and the sixth ("Despicable Me 3") was largely received as a solid enough family release. Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to comScore.
