Det är utvecklaren Quentin Carnicelli på företaget Rogue Amoeba som skapat Mac-program som Airfoil, Audio Hijack, Loopback och Fission som är ordentligt besviken på Apple, i synnerhet på bristen på uppdateringar för Mac-datorerna.Det skrev han i ett blogginlägg under veckan.”Givet det otroligt sorgliga tillståndet för Mac-utbudet är det svårt att förstå hur WWDC kunde passera utan några hårdvarulanseringar,” skriver Quentin Carnicelli.Med undantag för Imac Pro har inte en enda Macintosh uppdaterats under det senaste året.Siri + Spotify – och 5 andra nyheter du kan ha missat från WWDCImac Pro lanserades för 185 dagar sedan.

But ever since OnePlus burst into view years ago, claiming to be a small manufacturer that’d outgun bigger rivals with online sales and smart cost-cutting, there’s been speculation over who’s really behind the project.OnePlus co-founder and CEO Pete Lau is formerly of huge Chinese phone brand Oppo, which is widely reported to be part of an even bigger company called BBK Electronics that also houses fellow Chinese megabrand Vivo.Oppo and Vivo were co-founded by Duan Yongping, a Chinese billionaire who rarely gives interviews, and his company BBK has almost no public-facing presence — surprising, given that Oppo and Vivo’s combined shipments are substantial enough to make it the fourth-largest phone company in the world.I’ve been using the Oppo R15 Pro — the flagship phone that many publications (including ours) suggested may have been a blueprint for the OnePlus 6 — along with the Vivo X21, and the comparison isn’t as straight as you might think.They’re built around notched 6.28-inch 2280 x 1080 OLED displays, aluminum frames, and curved glass back panels, albeit with subtly different contours.It may well be using the same notched 6.28-inch OLED panel, sure, but that’s not likely to be a distinguishing mark this year — basically every Android manufacturer is embracing the notch, so to speak, including LG, Huawei, Xiaomi, and reportedly even Google.

Call it a May-December marriage: A hot new AI chip startup called Wave Computing has acquired a veteran in the processor business, MIPS Technologies, CNET has learned.Wave, founded in 2010, aims to speed up the artificial intelligence technology with its custom processors.But those chips are geared for companies with a big appetite for in-house AI work or for the data centers packed with computers that often supply computing power to others.By acquiring MIPS, Wave has a chance to disperse its technology from those central areas to the much wider world of devices in our lives.But it plans to announce the acquisition, a source familiar with the move said.AI is a broad term, but these days it generally refers to technology called deep learning or neural networks that are based loosely on human brains and that dramatically reshape computing.

the LG G7 ThinQ make the very most part good but has a few really impressive features.once upon A time was the LG's G-series of fun and innovative, with many technical news or dared to experiment with modular construction.Last year, the G6 was a departure from this with a good, but fairly traditional, mobile.this Year's Android phones all seem to be cast in the same form, with a screen that goes almost all the way out at the edges, and a ”flärp” for selfiekameran.Just like the iPhone X. On the back, we find still dual cameras, albeit above instead of next to each other.In Scandinavia, we content ourselves with either the black or the blue model, where the latter is most intriguing, with its shimmering surface.

The tale of Hawaii's recent volcanic eruptions continues to change, much like its fierce lava flows, and new images from space tell the latest chapter.Two satellites and a camera-wielding astronaut captured powerful overhead views of the active Kilauea volcano on Hawaii's Big Island.Images taken from late May to Sunday (June 10) show molten material churning out from volcanic fissures on a journey toward the Pacific Ocean on the southeast corner of the island.The devastation left in the volcano's wake is palpable in the time-lapse imagery released by officials at the European Space Agency (ESA) on June 8.The ESA Copernicus Sentinel-2 satellite captured the changing paths that the bright-orange lava rivers took to enter the Pacific Ocean.Distinct paths are apparent when viewing the May 23 and June 8 photos one after the other.

The first thing you notice when you walk into the theater is the smell of soap, followed by a faint stickiness on the carpeted floors, and a tacky coating on the armrests of the seats.When the lights come up at the Gazillion Bubbles Show, it quickly becomes clear what's going on.Powerful fans blow tiny soap bubbles into the audience by the thousands.Little kids giggle; bigger kids scream.And like a magician, 27-year-old Melody Yang pulls out her wands.She uses water-based vapor (she calls it "smoke") to create bubbles that erupt like volcanoes, and some that launch into the air like rockets.

Game of Thrones fans celebrated last week when HBO revealed it's ordered a pilot of one of the five possible successor shows to the fantasy hit.But the premium cable network was about as generous with the details as Cersei is about sharing her wine.All HBO revealed was a fairly generic statement that hinted at details without really sharing any.The only real tidbit was that the show promised to explore the true origin of the creepy White Walkers.Martin, whose Song of Ice and Fire book series inspired the series, spilled a little more news on his website on Monday.Martin reminded fans that HBO has only ordered a pilot episode, meaning the show might not come to series.

In a blow to electronic-voting critics, Brazil’s Supreme Court has suspended the use of all paper ballots in this year's elections.The ruling means that only electronic ballot boxes will be used, and there will be no voter-verified paper trail that officials can use to check the accuracy of results.In an 8-2 majority, justices on Wednesday sided with government arguments that the paper trails posed a risk to ballot secrecy, Brazil’s Folha De S.Paulo newspaper reported on Thursday.That requirement, by Brazil’s Supreme Electoral Court, already represented a major weakening of an election reform bill passed in 2015.Speaking in support of Wednesday’s decision, Justice Gilmar Mendes equated proponents of voter-verified paper trails to conspiracy theorists."After the statements made here [by those who defend paper votes], we have to believe that perhaps we did not actually reach the moon,” Mendes was quoted as saying.

Gett, the ride-hailing app that more than half of London black cabs run on, has raised $80m (£58.9m) in a round led by Volkswagen, taking the firm’s valuation up to $1.4bn.Though only small compared to Uber and Lyft’s valuations of $62bn and $11bn respectively, Gett is now predicted to beat them both to global profitability by the end of the first quarter in 2019 across its 120 cities, excluding research and development costs.The platform has now raised over $700m to date, operating across Europe and in New York under the name of acquired firm Juno, which Gett bought for $200m last year.Read more: Uber applies for 18-month permit in run-up to licence appealGett’s founder and CEO Dave Waiser said that New York is currently its fastest growing market, now running alongside London with more than 50 per cent of the city’s driver base registered on the app.Gett also prides itself on having a strict quality policy in place, only signing drivers with a rating of 4.8 or higher.

the Parrot has had it slightly körigt on drönarfronten after pushat out maybe a little too many minidrönare in a short time, which led to substantial restructuring in the drönaravdelningen.Now it seems the gang will be back for real, and has presented the new Anafi, which is the company's equivalent of the DJI Mavic.This is a folding drone that weighs 230 grams and a proper camera on a gimbal.the Camera can take photos with 21 megapixel resolution and record 4K/HDR at 30 FPS or 1080p/HDR 60 fps.the Camera also allows you to zoom in up to three times, but do you want to have Full HD video so you will only be able to run 2x zoom.the Battery life is 25 minutes and the battery goes to replace bad quickly if necessary.

Several years ago, Microsoft got the ball rolling on a very interesting project: undersea data centers.It’s been a while since we last heard from this initiative, called Project Natick, but now Microsoft has announced a major milestone for it.The company has sunk a new data center off the coast of Scotland’s Orkney Islands, and assuming everything goes smoothly, it’ll be on the ocean floor for at least the next five years.The data center that went under is essentially a 40-foot long tank that’s packed with 12 racks and a total of 864 servers.The data center will be powered by renewable energy generated on the Orkney Islands, specifically the European Marine Energy Center, which researches tidal and wave power.An undersea cable powers the data center, providing it with an internet connection as well.

Earlier this month I posted a review of the Go 2, JBL's update to its pocket-sized Bluetooth speaker.Now that's it's available, it's discounting the original Go to $20, which isn't a bad deal for a tiny speaker that doesn't sound terrible.The Go 2 does sound a little bit better, has a slightly improved design and is fully waterproof.On Amazon, the original Go costs anywhere from $25 to $30, depending on the color.Some Amazon reviewers claim the speaker sounds great.I'd say it sounds better than you'd think for its tiny size.

In the several articles we have written about Graykey, the gray box is quickly becoming popular among the us authorities and which by being linked to an Iphones lightning connector can crack the passcode by guessing the correct code.Now we know that Apple with IOS 12 takes a further step to try to limit the Graykey and other similar ”Iphone-brute", which is connected to the lightning port.Already, in a beta version of IOS 11.4 was tested in a limited mode, where the lightning connector is automatically turned off after a week if the phone has not been unlocked some time during this time.In a beta version of IOS 11.4.1 reduced this time to an hour, and even in the IOS 12, this limited location the left.When the limited mode is enabled, can the lightning port doesn't do anything except charge the device until the phone is unlocked.Apple's response to Graykey – IOS 11.4 will turn off the lightning connector

Rumors and leaks of the Intel Core i7-8086K spilled everywhere on the web so it was basically inevitable we would see it at Computex 2018 and now it’s finally official.As previous reports suggested, the Intel Core i7-8068K the brand’s most supped up Coffee Lake desktop processor to date.Intel calls the first-ever CPU to reach a 5.0GHz turbo frequency – and that’s all without overclocking the chip.Otherwise the processor is outfitted with six-cores and 12-threads, plus a base clockspeed of 4.0GHz.Comparatively, that’s 300GHz faster than the company’s previous Coffee Lake flagship Intel Core i7-8700K and its TDP is still rated at the same 95W.The processor was announced as part of a run up to its 50th anniversary on June 18.

I honestly can't remember how I learned about Pratherteam, but I'm glad I did.I looked around its website and really liked its approach so I requested a review sample of its handsome Walnut Record Rack-Model CFM ($95, or £72 and AU$126 roughly converted) LP storage unit, which holds up to 40 LPs.Brit and husband Jason Prather design, build, finish, pack and ship everything from their home workshop in Sugarcreek, Ohio to customers worldwide.Pratherteam makes a wide assortment of LP racks, with most priced under $100 (that roughly converts to £75 and AU$132), and judging by the one I have here, build quality and wood finishing are first rate.I think its units are a lot nicer than what I've seen online and in stores for this kind of money.There's nothing fancy about the design, but I don't need "features" in a piece of furniture, just something that will hold up and look good for years to come.
