Nyligen anslöt vi en Macbook Pro till en tv via hdmi.Vi försökte ändra till en annan upplösning i Systeminställningar -> Bildskärm men efter att ha flimrat svart kom systemet tillbaka helt fruset.Det gick inte att göra något, och vi blev tvungna att starta om.Det enda som fungerade var att koppla ur tv:n. Men då kom frågan: Hur gör vi för att nollställa inställningen så att Mac OS inte automatiskt gör något när jag ansluter till den tv:n, utan behandlar den som om den aldrig hade anslutits?Om du drabbas av ett liknande problem har vi efter mycket letande hittat en (något brutal) lösning.Inställningarna hanteras av systemprocessen Window Server som har en central roll i Mac OS grafiska gränssnitt.

Sure, our satellite might be a little clingy, but it also has moonquakes, orange soil, and could be hiding abundant water resources.New research from satellite data offers more evidence that the Moon does indeed have water trapped in its mantle, which could be huge for companies looking to mine the Moon for resources.In a study published today in Nature Geoscience, researchers posit they’ve detected water within volcanic deposits spread across the lunar surface.The team used measurements of lunar samples from Apollo missions, in addition to orbital spectrometer aboard India’s lost (and found) Chandrayaan-1 lunar orbiter, to investigate any signatures of water.Orbital spectrometers can measure how much light is reflected off an object’s surface and help inform scientists about its composition.The researchers detected evidence of water across many volcanic deposits, including the sites near Apollo 15 and 17 landings.

If your WordPress site uses third-party plugins, you may be experiencing data loss and other problematic behavior without even knowing it.It is by far the most popular content management system, powering 28 percent of the Internet, and still the fastest growing, with over 500 sites created on the platform each day.The issue is essentially due to the fact that WordPress discards entire datasets even when only one of the data elements within the set contains too many characters for the insertion field.And because of one particular scenario involving storing a visitor’s data when they’re connecting with an IPv6 address, the situation is exponentially worse.Thus, plugin developers typically set the maximum allowed characters for the IP address database field their plugin uses to about 15-20 characters.In the example above, if the IP address is too long, WordPress discards the entire data set (not just the oversized IP address string).

Rather than taking a backseat, as the V-Series phones have done previously, the forthcoming LG V30 is shaping up to surpass the flagship G6 handset.We’ve already seen reports suggesting a gorgeous 18:9 FullVision edge-to-edge display, as well as a Snapdragon 835 processor, bettering the Snapgradon 820 on the G6.Which phone will lead the Android charge this August?This is a dedicated Bixby button – which I'll cover in more detail in the Software section – and while it shows Samsung is taking its new virtual assistant seriously, it feels too much for Bixby to have its own button.Unlike with the G6, though, the display here melts into the sturdy metal rim.Accidental touches were common on older Edge phones, with your hand hitting the screen when you were just holding the device, but I haven't experienced this with the S8.

Pelkän yhden ydinaseen räjäyttäminen voi aiheuttaa paljon pahempaa tuhoa kuin tähän saakka on ajateltu, väittävät Nebraska-Lincolnin yliopiston tutkijat.Tutkijoiden laskelmien mukaan pelkkä yhden suuren ydinlatauksen räjäyttäminen kaupunkialueella nostaisi stratosfääriin jopa viisi miljoonaa kuutiotonnia tuhkaa.Räjähdyksen vaikutus tuntuisi 1 300 neliökilometrin kokoisella alueella.Ydinaseen laukaisusta ei kuitenkaan seuraisi monessa muussa yhteydessä puhuttua ydintalvea, vaan ”ydinsyksy”, mutta senkin seuraukset voisivat olla ihmiskunnalle kohtalokkaat.Tällainen hiilimäärä ilmakehässä johtaisi sateiden määrän merkittävään vähenemiseen ja lämpötilan laskuun niin, että keskilämpötila laskisi alimmilleen tuhanteen vuoteen.Kasvukausi lyhenisi jopa viiden vuoden ajan.

Pocketable battery packs and solar chargers like Secur SP-6000 are handy for short trips, but keeping an entire family’s worth of gadgets charged for a long weekend requires something more powerful.The ChargeTech Plug Pro ($349; available on Amazon) is a portable battery pack made from Tesla cells that hold a whopping 54,000 mAh of power.Naturally, Plug Pro is considerably larger as a result, housed in a charcoal black case measuring 6.25 inches wide, 8.625 inches long, and about two inches tall.That’s not what many people would consider “portable,” but Plug Pro is smaller than most hardcover books, and compact enough for a backpack or laptop bag.One downside is the batteries take a good chunk of the day to recharg —about 7.5 hours when fully depleted.Although the pack outputs 110 volts and 250 watts, you don’t want to plug in power tools or anything else with a motor—ChargeTech designed the unit with electronic devices in mind.

Los Angeles-bolaget Hyperloop One har genomfört en lyckad testkörning av hyperloop på sin testbana i Nevadaöknen – den första i sitt slag.I veckan gick Hyperloop One, ett av bolagen som jobbar med att utveckla det supersnabba transportsättet hyperloop, ut med att man har gjort sin första skarpa testkörning.Den ägde rum inuti ett rör på bolagets 500 meter långa testbana i Nevadaöknen.Testet genomfördes med en släde som svävar i vakuumröret med kraften från magnetisk levitation.Nästa steg i testet ska genomföras i en hastighet av över 400 kilometer i timmen, enligt ett pressmeddelande från Hyperloop One.Den hastigheten är dock bara en bråkdel av vad hyperlooptransporter skulle gå i om de blir verklighet.

But the humble microbial workhorse, with its easy-to-edit genome, has given humankind so much more—insulin, antibiotics, cancer drugs, biofuels, synthetic rubber, and now: a place to keep your selfies safe for the next millennium.Scientists have already used plain old DNA to encode and store all 587,287 words of War and Peace, a list of all the plant material archived in the Svalbard Seed Vault, and an OK Go music video.(As if E. coli didn’t already have enough on its plate, what with securing global insulin supplies and weaning the world off fossil fuels.)If you’re Jeff Nivala, it’s not to preserve visual messages for people in the far-off future.“The E. coli is just a proof of concept to show what cool things you can do with this Crispr system,” says Nivala, a co-author on the paper and geneticist at Harvard.“Our real goal is to enable cells to gather information about themselves and to store it in their genome for us to look at later.” That concept is called the “molecular ticker tape.” It’s something George Church thought up before Nivala, a post-doc, arrived in his lab.

looks ready for a new life with its Note series after its exploding Note 7.The South Korean giant is expected to announce its Galaxy Note 8 on August 23, reports South Korean media outlet The Bell.Citing a Samsung executive, the publication added the earlier date should make the Note 8 available for purchase from "early September."It's not the first we've heard of an August announcement for the Note 8.The Korean Herald last month reported the phone would be unveiled in late August, just before Apple announces its next iPhone.Other rumours have pointed to a September release date and a $900 price tag (about £700 or AU$1,190 converted).

Neurologists have created a hands-free, thought-controlled musical instrument, which they've recently described in a report in Frontiers in Human Neuroscience.Researchers hope that this new instrument will help empower and rehabilitate patients with motor disabilities such as those from stroke, spinal cord injury, amputation, or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)."The Encephalophone is a musical instrument that you control with your thoughts, without movement," explains Thomas Deuel, a neurologist at Swedish Medical Center and a neuroscientist at the University of Washington, and first author of the report."I thought it would be great to use a brain-computer instrument to enable patients to play music again without requiring movement."The Encephalophone collects brain signals through a cap that transforms specific signals into musical notes.Dr. Deuel originally developed the Encephalophone (patent pending) in his own independent laboratory, in collaboration with Dr. Felix Darvas, a physicist at the University of Washington.

Openreach will remove BT from its logo, vehicles and equipment by 2021 as part of phased rebrandingOpenreach has started the process of removing BT from its branding as part of a four year exercise that will cover the company’s logo, vehicles and online properties.Last year, BT agreed to make Openreach a legally separate entity complete with its own CEO, budget, staff and brand, to appease regulator Ofcom and ensure that the open access network division would not have to be sold off.Some of BT’s rivals had accused Openreach of acting in the best interests of its parent company and not the 580 communications providers that use its services.This, they argued, stifled innovation and harmed competition.As part of the deal with regulator Ofcom, it was agreed that Openreach must have its own distinctive identity without any mention to BT.

Intuition Robotics, maker of the ElliQ robotic elder care assistant, and opened an office in San Francisco.As it looks to grow staff and ramp up testing of the product, the company has raised another $14 million, this time from Toyota Research Institute (TRI).ElliQ, which the company likes to call an “active aging companion,” is made up of an interactive robot attached to a tablet, and is designed to help older adults age in place.The robot was built to keep the elderly engaged, active, and connected to the outside world, first by allowing families to video chat with older relatives and second by acting as a companion to suggest activities and remind elderly users to take their medicine.Intuition Robotics recently entered the initial testing phase of the companion robot with users in the Bay Area, and is actively hiring a team there.With those plans underway, the company was looking to add more funding to its war chest and add some additional expertise along the way because, well, hardware is hard.

When it comes to detecting new organisms that emerge from exotic places and cause global havoc, the US military is ready.All that effort makes sense, with 200,000 US troops deployed at bases in 171 countries that can encounter a wide range of emerging biological threats.But Pentagon planners are starting to wonder what happens if the next deadly flu bug or hemorrhagic fever doesn't come from a mosquito-infested jungle or bat-crowded cave.With new gene editing tools like Crispr-Cas9, state enemies could, theoretically, create unique organisms by mixing-and-matching bits of genetic information.As this scenario evolves from sci-fi to real-world possibility, many public health experts, biology researchers, and even the military have begun to examine possible threats, according to Christian Hassell, deputy assistant secretary of defense for chemical and biological defense.What is the threat that it poses, if any?’”

Closing in on nearly a decade in business but failing to turn a profit, indie music platform SoundCloud has let 173 of its staffers go this week.That amounts to nearly 40 percent of its workforce; it’s also closing its offices in San Francisco and London.The idea is to cut down on overheads and keep the company afloat as it tries to figure out how to sustain its service.That doesn’t bode well for the upstart streaming service, which previously was being considered for acquisition by Twitter and Spotify – but those deals are ancient history now.Although co-founder Alex Ljung noted that the company “more than doubled our revenue in the last 12 months alone,” TechCrunch estimated that SoundCloud’s fiscal year 2016 revenues would only be around $57 million.That’s a pittance compared to Spotify’s $2 billion and Pandora’s $1.39 billion in revenue from last year, and may not be enough to cover the costs of product development and music licensing needed to compete with these heavy hitters.
