Questions mount on both delivery and production issues, with little communication from 101Hero itself.When 101Hero debuted its namesake 3D printer on Kickstarter last May, the thought of a functional printer for as little as $49 seemed like a great deal.But we questioned if it was just too good to be true.Multiple reports — both to Digital Trends directly and the company s Kickstarter page — indicate that some early backers have not received their printer yet.In some cases, printer shipments are now as much as three months past their original promised ship date, with little if any communication from 101Hero itself on the cause.From what we can tell, backers as early as 412 are still waiting for a printers — however in some cases later backers have received printers, or at least a shipment notification.
A lot of moving pieces shift during the peaceful transition of one presidential administration to another, not the least of which is the online visage of those administrations: Whitehouse.gov.As Donald J. Trump, the 45th President of the United States, was taking the oath of office on the steps of the Capitol, the official web site of the administration was undergoing a radical change.In the days leading up to the inauguration, Whitehouse.gov, which featured former President Barack Obama's name at the very top next to "The White House," looked back at Obama's legacy and featured a large image of Obama walking to the White House overlaid with the words "Yes, we did, yes we can."Below, it offered a survey of Obama's accomplishments while in office in a number of key areas, including Healthcare, Climate and Energy, Equality and Social Progress and Economic Progress.At precisely noon eastern time the page was replaced with this splash image featuring new President Donald J. Trump and Vice President Mike Pence and a form where you can to sign up for email updates.A small link directs users to the full website, which is, surprisingly full.
Last year s presidential election laid bare the impact of fake news on our democracy.Facebook and Google both banned fake news sites from their advertising networks, and news organizations like the BBC announced they d launched their own anti-fake news taskforce.So, it feels inevitable that someone would create a fake-fake news factchecker.In Sweden, a group has emerged called Mediekollen, which promises to debunk false information.Except, as the Guardian pointed out, Mediekollen is itself a tool of disinformation .When it covered the controversial Donald Trump intelligence dossier, in addition to saying that it could not be verified which every news organization that s covered it has emphasized , it also said that it originated from a 4chan hoax, which is categorically untrue.

Glowing like a deep-sea fish, this dress is coated with bacteria.A collaboration between designer Victoria Geaney, 29, and University of Cambridge academics Anton Kan, 29, and Bernardo Pollak, 28, it was created to further research the application of bioluminescent bacteria to fabrics."It's a different light source - it's biological, it grows and then dies," explains Pollak."It's an alternative type of technology."It wasn't initially the intention to create bacterial art.After receiving funding, Pollak and Kan were looking to explore whether these living organisms could be made to grow in unusual environments, which is where Geaney, with her previous experience in conceptual fashion, came in.

The Registerer rapporterar om en ny och riktigt slug phishingattack mot Gmail.Hackare tar sig in på ett konto och går sedan igenom inkorgen för att hitta kontakter och andra adresser att skicka nya attacker till.Sedan skickas ett mejl med vad som är till förvillelse likt en Gmail-bilaga.Bilagan leder till en sida som om du tittar i adressfältet ser ut att ligga på domänen google.com, men det som visas är i själva verket en falsk kopia som försöker sno sina loginuppgifter.This is the closest I've ever come to falling for a Gmail phishing attack.If it hadn't been for my high-DPI screen making the image fuzzy… pic.twitter.com/MizEWYksBh
It is used to even out your skin and cover imperfections before you apply blush, bronzer, lipstick, or whatever else you re going to wear.Loose powders are exactly what they sound like, and come in jars big enough for you to dip your brush in.Pressed powders mean that the loose powder has been pressed into a pan, usually housed in a compact, making it a little more travel friendly and application more foolproof, since your brush picks up less product.Liquid foundations have become more and more prevalent in recent years.They are extremely versatile, and emerging technologies continue to turn out more innovative products, so whatever finish or level of coverage you want, there will be an option for you.Liquid foundations can be found water, oil, or silicone bases for different levels of longevity, coverage, and finish.
Att offentliga ramavtal brukar ta tid på grund av att besluten ofta överprövas är knappast någon nyhet.Men oftast brukar det sluta när överprövningen avslås i Förvaltningsrätten.Den här gången har nämligen två aktörer, Dustin och IT-Total, valt att överklaga domarna från Förvaltningsrätten till nästa instans, Kammarrätten.Övriga sex aktörer, B2B IT-Partner, Cuebid, Dustin, IT-Total, Pedab och Wincore, fick negativa besked strax innan årsskiftet.Men sedan har två av dem överklagats till Kammarrätten, säger Daniel Melin på Statens inköpscentral vid Kammarkollegiet.– De som överklagar tillför i princip inget nytt, utan anser helt enkelt att Förvaltningsrätten har dömt fel.
Almost 70 years ago, Ernest Hemingway offered this advice to a young writer.Listening and watching is the key to understanding and empathy, and empathy unlocks the power in people - and companies - to improve the world.Sympathy involves feeling compassion, sorrow, or pity for the hardships that another person encounters, while empathy is the capacity to understand or feel what another person is experiencing from within the other person s frame of reference.Years ago, scientists studying specific nerve cells in macaque monkeys prefrontal cortexes found that that specific cells fired when the monkeys threw a ball or ate a banana.This is why when someone smiles at us, we spontaneously smile back and when someone screams in pain, we cringe.In effect, these mirror neurons transport us into another person s mind, briefly making us feel what the person is feeling, prompting V. S. Ramachandran, a pioneer in mirror neuron research, to dub them empathy neurons or Dalai Lama neurons capable of dissolving the barrier between self and others.

Though classically trained, the British-born, Berlin-based DJ had almost abandoned the genre."Working electronically you are free to make any sound you want," explains Jolly, 30.But she remained a classical enthusiast, self-releasing a piano suite album, Klavirni, in 2015.Melanfonie, out in January, was composed on a laptop "with really horrible cheap-sounding orchestra sample libraries programmed together with my mouse," she says.And after raising €25,000 £22,250 from Kickstarter, Jolly could afford to hire a 50-piece orchestra and spend eight hours recording them in a former Communist Party studio in Prague.To give the music more of a dance feel, Jolly physically rearranged the orchestra.
Volkswagen on myöntänyt syyllisyytensä kolmeen rikokseen ja maksaa 4,2 miljardin dollaria eli noin 3,9 miljardia euroa Yhdysvaltain oikeusministeriön päästöhuijaustutkinnan sopimiseksi.Asiasta kertoo muun muassa Financial Times.Lehden mukaan kyseessä on toiseksi suurin ympäristörikoksen sovittelu Yhdysvaltain historiassa heti öljy-yhtiö BP:n tunnetun Deepwater Horizonin öljykatastrofin jälkeen.Volkswagenin pitää lisäksi nimittää ja maksaa ulkopuolinen valvoja toimintansa valvomiseen kolmen vuoden ajaksi.Autovalmistaja on myöntänyt asentaneensa päästömittaustuloksia vääristävän ohjelman yli 11 miljoonaan ajoneuvoon maailmanlaajuisesti.FBI pidätti sunnuntaina VW:n sääntelyn noudattamisesta vastaavaa osastoa Yhdysvalloissa vuosina 2014-2015 johtaneen Oliver Schmidtin.
A prototype of the ElliQ robot, made by Israel-based start-up Intuition Robotics, will be unveiled at the Design Museum in London this week.ElliQ is a small desktop device that consists of a stylised domed body and a separate detachable screen.Similar to home assistants like the Amazon Echo, people can simply talk to it, and there are visual cues that could be particularly helpful for those with hearing difficulties.A key purpose of ElliQ is to act as an easy interface to access existing services such as social media, messaging programs, and audio and video streaming.For example, the device could alert the user that their grandchild has posted a new photo on Facebook, show it to them on the screen, and allow them to comment using speech-to-text technology.Like the Amazon Echo, ElliQ only sends speech to the cloud after hearing its name, so it is not constantly transmitting any sounds it hears.
Och bolagets vd och grundare Jacob de Geer har lockat till sig närmare två miljarder kronor i externt kapital.Under 2015 var förlusten 295 Mkr, motsvarande 85 procent av omsättningen på 348 Mkr.Enligt källor till Di Digital är tillväxten fortsatt 70-100 procent, medan förlusterna fortsätter.Ägarna är rimligtvis redan underrättade.I onsdagens intervju med Di Digital uppger Jacob de Geer att den nya finanschefen Maria Hedengren ska leda förberedelserna med de processer och finansieringsplaner som krävs för bolagets nästa fas .Det första alternativet känns inte direkt som en ny fas .

Last Wednesday was supposed to be a banner day for planetary scientists who study Venus, the closest planet to Earth.In recent decades, of more than a dozen missions proposed to explore Venus, only a handful had made it through NASA s preliminary round of consideration.But as part of NASA s most recent selection of planetary missions, of the five finalists were dedicated to Venus.Two others were dedicated to asteroids, and a final one would look for near-Earth asteroids.
The Merry Christmas ransom note features Futurama's evil Robot Santa.Unsuspecting internet users could find themselves on the receiving end of an unwanted belated Christmas present, malware that doesn't only encrypt their Windows PC and hold it to ransom, but also steals personal data and login credentials.Spotted by cybersecurity researchers in the first week of the year, the Merry Christmas ransomware - also known as Merry X-Mas - might initially appear to be a strange name for a January ransomware campaign.Whoever is behind the Merry Christmas ransomware, they're distributing it via spam email claiming to be from one of two sources.One of the campaigns claims the sender is from the Federal Trade Commission, telling the recipient that their company is under investigation for violating the Consumer Credit Protection Act, while the other claims to be a notice of court, informing the victim they've used illegal software and must attend trial.In both cases the intended victim is sent a link, supposedly to the complaint against them, which when clicked will download an executable zip file disguised as PDF document.
Apple s first-generation iPhone started a revolution 10 years ago today.It seems like just yesterday that late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs walked out on stage at the Macworld conference in January 2007 and put an end to years of rumors and speculation.More importantly, Apple put an end to overcomplicated smartphones like Symbian phones and BlackBerry handsets, shifting the industry toward a much more intuitive user experience.Of course Apple isn t the only company that enjoyed success as a result of the iPhone s introduction.Google, which had been developing Android as a BlackBerry clone, completely changed the direction of the platform ahead of launch thanks to the iPhone.Samsung grew to become the top handset maker in the world thanks in large part to copying Apple s iPhone.
