The flying-car bandwagon has space for everyone, whether it's Uber or, most recently, Aston Martin.Aston Martin today unveiled the Volante Vision flying car concept.Like many other personal air-transportation concepts, the Volante Vision utilizes vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) technology, so it can land on a dime in tight urban areas.It packs hybrid-electric power and is capable of autonomous flight (as far as concepts are capable of anything).It might not resemble any modern Aston Martin, but it's still awfully pretty.The whole front wing looks like a crazy version of a Formula 1 front wing, and the main fuselage is sleek, like something you might find in a concept previewing the next generation of fighter jets.

Minnow takes on pretty much every other primary storage supplierDatera provides block-access scale-out, server-based storage with its Elastic Data Fabric software running in x86 servers, supplied by the firm itself or bought off the shelf from suppliers like Cisco, Dell, HPE and Supermicro.It supports bare-metal, virtualized and containerized applications and provides them with data services – it is a Data Services Platform (DSP).The idea is to to avoid being limited by a particular storage array's design and architectural limitations by building a virtual array using Lego-like server bricks.Datera has claimed it can deliver block data access services to any storage-consuming application, even mission-critical ones.The DSP software combines multiple servers' flash and disk storage and places data with auto-tiering and auto-migration of live data.
Magic Leap recently held a developer stream on Twitch where the gang delivered some information about the date set.More specifically told the developers that the Creator Edition of AR-brillorna One will become available later in the summer.During the liveströmmen we also got to find out that One will be a relatively powerful device as it comes equipped with the Nvidia chip Tegra X2, which is the sequel to the Tegra X1, which among other things, Nintendo Switch is equipped with.No specific release date, we have not received and also the price is unclear.It has previously been rumored that it will be a bit expensive, as the cheapest variant of the device will cost 1000 dollars, but it has not yet been confirmed.Liveströmmen you can see in its entirety here.
You'll need more than sunglasses to look at this shiny object in the sky.The brightest object in the universe has been discovered, a quasar from when the universe was just 7 percent of its current age.The quasar, now known as PSO J352.4034-15.3373 (P352-15 for short), was discovered 13 billion light-years away from Earth by the Very Long Baseline Array (VLBA) radio telescope.“We are seeing P352-15 as it was when the Universe was less than a billion years old, or only about 7 percent of its current age,” said Chris Carilli, of National Radio Astronomy Observatory (NRAO) in a statement.Carilli added: "Further observations may allow us to use this quasar as a background ‘lamp’ to measure the amount of neutral hydrogen remaining at that time.”Quasars are defined as an extremely luminous active galactic nucleus, powered by a black hole that is a billion times as massive as the Sun, according to Space.com.
We've been doing our usual rounds of checking prices on the most popular tech today and noticed the Amazon Echo Dot is down from £49.99 to a much more appealing £34.99.That matches the joint-lowest price Amazon has ever sold its excellent smart speaker for, but given the Amazon Prime Day deals are due to begin on July 16, we'd seriously advise you wait before taking the plunge.You see, prices on pretty much all Amazon devices (Echo speakers, Kindles, Fire TV and Fire Tablets) all went back up to full-price recently, which is a trick we see at most retailers before a big sale kicks in.This way, retailers can make a bigger song and dance about whatever discount arrives in the sales.And we think this was probably the plan with the Echo Dot which has been sat at £49.99 before today this week, way up on its usually consistent £39.99 discounted price here in the UK.Well, you can probably blame Google.
Låt dig inte luras av priset: TCL 55DP660 har imponerande prestanda som bör göra konkurrenterna nervösa.TCL är ett ganska så nytt TV-märke här hemma, men ute i vida världen är det nästan lika stort som Samsung och LG tack vare sin prismedvetna profil.Rent designmässigt är det ingenting som skriker ”billigt” med TCL 55DP660.De V-formade fötterna sitter relativt brett, men de är enkla att montera, hela TV:n är uppackad och redo att användas på bara ett par minuter.Anslutningarna sitter infällda i en ”ficka” på baksidan, vilket gör det bekvämt att montera skärmen om man vill.Du kan också använda mobilenen som fjärrkontroll om du vill.
Some might still find the idea either too good to be true or too ridiculous, but an iPad with no home button or Touch ID might very well be due soon.No, there is no leaked device but Apple did provided iOS 12 to developers and beta testers already.And in that beta form was hidden a version of AvatarKit that supports the iPad’s large screen.And with AvatarKit comes the need for a TrueDepth camera, which ultimately means Face ID.The discovery and association was made by developer Steve Troughton-Smith, whose claim to fame includes many discoveries hidden inside iOS beta code.He notes how the AvatarKit on iPad implementation currently doesn’t have facial tracking.
Dustin ser ut att följa sin strategi för företagsköp – ”vi har en planerad takt med tre till fem förvärv per år”, sade Dustins nya vd Thomas Ekman tidigare i år till Computer Sweden.Nu går företaget utanför Norden och köper Vincere Groep, en nederländsk tjänsteleverantör med fokus på små och medelstora företag och organisationer inom offentlig sektor som framför allt arbetar med molnlösningar, säkerhet och it-lösningar med tillhörande hårdvara och konsulttjänster.Köpeskillingen uppgår till 65 miljoner euro, runt 670 miljoner kronor, på skuldfri basis, och i och med köpet ökar också den potentiella marknaden från 150 miljarder till 250 miljarder svenska kronor.– Genom förvärvet ökar vi vår adresserbara marknad och Nederländerna är väldigt likt Norden både vad gäller marknadstruktur och kundbehov.Vincere Groep blir en naturlig del av Dustin och kommer bidra till att ytterligare stärka vår position för fortsatt uthållig stark tillväxt och marginalexpansion, säger Thomas Ekman, vd och koncernchef på Dustin, i en kommentar.Dustins styrelse har för avsikt att till stämman föreslå en nyemission på 500-700 miljoner kronor med ambitionen att den ska genomföras före årets slut för att ”fullt ut kunna verkställa den nuvarande tillväxtstrategin i Norden samt kunna ta till vara de tillväxtmöjligheter som identifierats i Nederländerna”.
After launching last year at MWC 2017, Samsung’s current flagship tablet, the Galaxy Tab S3, is starting to feel a little outdated.So naturally, rumours have begun leaking out about Samsung’s upcoming refresh, with the most recent leaks even showing off purported renders of the Tab S4's final design.Based on what’s been leaked so far, it seems the biggest changes on the S4 will be slimmer bezels around the screen and the removal of Samsung’s traditional home button/fingerprint sensor combo from the front of the device.Samsung - GalaxyTabS4 - Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 leaks out without physical home button https://t.co/fhU5KMOXir pic.twitter.com/lpTg8pLMHq— /LEAKS (@Slashleaks) July 3, 2018And while it’s hard to tell, Android Headlines claims that the leaked renders show that the Tab S4 will sport an iris scanner at the top of the tablet, like the one featured on other recent Samsung devices like the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy Note 8.
Homage, a Singapore-based startup that helps connect caregivers and organizations with patients and their families, has raised $4.15 million as it begins to eye overseas expansions.The company was started in 2016 by Gillian Tee, a Singaporean who spent time working in the U.S., healthcare industry exec Lily Phang and former banker Tong Duong.Tee’s previous stints include founding Rocketrip, a startup backed by Y Combinator that has raised nearly $20 million, but she moved home after 15 years to be closer to her family.The goal of Homage is to make it easier for caregivers and patients to connect, whilst also keeping their families updated.“We’re realizing how much of a need there is for personalized one-on-one care,” Tee told TechCrunch in an interview.“A lot of what we do is actually non-medical, and it’s even more clear that need to help people be mobile, be functional and have the choice to live with dignity as they age.”
Verizon has some new perks just for military families, the most notable being cheaper unlimited lines to help everyone stay in touch.The carrier announced the new rate today, explaining that families with an active military service member, veteran or similar can get the Verizon Go Unlimited plan for $30/line, depending on the number of lines, with a mix-and-match option.The new perks are offered to active-duty military members, reservists, veterans, and Gold Star families, Verizon says.Anyone who meets one of these requirements can sign up for the carrier’s Go Unlimited at $30/line for four lines.Assuming all four lines are added, this works out to a total monthly savings of $40 compared to the regular rate.Verizon is also allowing these military customers to mix-and-match unlimited plans, such as getting $15/month off of one line, $35/month off of only two lines, or $40/month off of three or four lines.
Citing industry sources familiar with the happenings in Korea, the Bell reported earlier this month that Samsung and Huawei had clinched a deal for the former to supply it with a massive 6.9-inch OLED panel which the Chinese manufacturer intends using for one of its upcoming flagships.While it was rumored the said OLED panel could end up with the pro variant of the upcoming Huawei Mate 20 series, the latest gist from China suggests otherwise.A leaked document containing details of unannounced phones suggests Huawei Honor brand could be preparing a device with a huge 6.9inch display.The device is codenamed as Ravel, and this could turn out to be the Honor Note 9 which should arrive later this year to take on the upcoming Galaxy Note 9.Giving ore substance to the speculations, Zhao Ming, the President of Honor business in a recent Weibo post said he has been playing with an Honor 10 flagship and a large screen Honor phone which could be the rumored Honor Note 9 phone with a 6.9-inch AMOLED screen.The Huawei Honor Note 8 was launched in August 2016, so it’s now overdue to get a follow-up, so we are not surprised hearing rumors about a follow-up — which naturally should be the Huawei Honor Note 9.

There’s a raft of headlines today claiming that Facebook has a patent on secretly turning your phone mic on when it hears a signal from a TV.The story appears to have picked up in Metro UK, which ran the headline “Facebook wants to hide secret inaudible messages in TV ads that can force your phone to record audio.”Here’s Gizmodo, in classic Giz style: “Facebook patent imagines triggering your phone’s mic when a hidden signal plays on TV.”Here’s Engadget, which personally breaks my heart since I used to do all the patent stories there: “Facebook patent turns phone mics on to record reactions to ads.”Here’s Esquire, for some reason: “Facebook’s new patent can turn on your microphone and secretly record you.”Anyway, all of these headlines are wrong.
If you tried to find out what Disney Princess you were on Facebook years ago, you might have given up more than your name.A security researcher found that a popular quiz Facebook app called "Nametests" had a flaw that allowed anybody to pull up information on more than 120 million people, even after the app was deleted.The flaw echoes Facebook's privacy issues as it continues to deal with the fallout from its Cambridge Analytica scandal.The data analytics firm had also used a personality quiz to obtain data on 87 million Facebook users without their permission.Facebook addressed the issue with a post on its Bug Bounty page, writing that Facebook has worked with Nametests' developers Social Sweethearts to address the vulnerability."A researcher brought the issue with the nametests.com website to our attention through our Data Abuse Bounty Program that we launched in April to encourage reports involving Facebook data.

Representatives from Facebook, Google, Twitter, and roughly a dozen other tech companies will gather with academics, lobbyists, and government officials Wednesday for a summit hosted by the Food and Drug Administration.The goal of the summit, according to the FDA, is to get tech leaders to "discuss ways to collaboratively take stronger action" against the spread of illicit opioids online.But the gathering was mired in controversy before it even began, as the tech and pharmaceutical industries wrestled over the question of who bears more responsibility for a crisis that kills more than 115 Americans every day.According to an invitation to the summit, which was sent to attendees by FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb in May, the FDA initially planned on asking tech companies to sign a “Pledge to Reduce the Availability of Illicit Opioids Online,” which it would publish 30 days after the event.But after consulting with tech companies, the FDA says it put that plan on hold."They've successfully changed the dynamics of the meeting," says Tim Mackey, an associate adjunct professor at University of California, San Diego, who is also presenting at the summit.
