With big savings on brand-name appliances, laptop computers, and clothing, there are quite a few lesser-known sales that you likely never would have heard of — until now.We took a deep dive into the tumultuous world of Memorial Day sales and came back with as many hidden gems as we could carry.We highlighted this sale earlier in the week, but with all of the Memorial Day discounts flooding the internet, REI quickly dropped off everyone’s radar.With savings on jackets, backpacks, camping stoves, and just about every other type of outdoor gear imaginable, now is still a great time to find some pretty sweet REI gear for less.This sale is only going on until May 28, so you’ll want to act quickly while supplies last.You may have already done the bulk of your spring cleaning this year, so the memories of all of those annoying household chores are likely still fresh in your mind.

Change the face of nanoparticles and you'll rule chemistry!The technique they present leads to qualitatively new possibilities to control the course of chemical reactions.A key element of the new technique, developed and demonstrated by researchers from the Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences (IPC PAS) in Warsaw, is the mechanism of geometric masking of active catalyst centres on the surfaces of nanoparticles.A catalyst is a substance that causes a reaction between specific chemical compounds, actively participating in it and largely reverting to its original state after its completion.The concept of light control of catalyst activity, proposed by the chemists from the IPC PAS, is most easily understood by making an analogy with sunflowers.At its base, the stem just bends, the basket falls down and the whole inflorescence ceases to be accessible.

2050 aims to equip young people to take action and to become volunteers.TechNode is organizing the Explore Expo, an exhibition area for young tech startups looking for exposure.The education industry is generally viewed as traditional, dogmatic, and oppressive in many Asian countries, especially in China.The app is animated and interactive, which encompasses a wide range of learning categories like reading skills, English, mathematics, and art.Applying interactivity and gamification helps engage children and improve the reading experience.Chu said kid’s ebook reading apps generally cost around $500,000 to $600,000 to develop, and the content takes approximately six months to make—it is impressive for a company to churn out 2 or 3 books each year.

Ett fordon som ändrar form efter funktion.Det är vad GM:s ingenjörer har på ritbordet.Och i en ny patentansökning framgår det att koncernen utforskar möjliga ”transformers-bilar”.På 80-talet lyckades leksakstillverkaren Hasbro erövra världen med sina Transformers – leksaker som kunde alternera mellan att se ut som en vanlig bil och en robot.På 2000-talet fick konceptet ett rejält uppsving då Hollywood plockade upp idén och började göra storfilmer.I filmerna spelar General Motors bilar en stor roll (bland annat på VW:s bekostnad – Bumbelbee var i originalserien en Bubbla, men är i Hollywood filmerna en Camaro).

The OpenStack Foundation has launched its Zuul continuous delivery and integration tool as a discrete project.Zuul is therefore Foundation’s second project other than OpenStack itself.The first was Kata Containers.Making Zuul a standalone effort therefore advance’s the Foundation’s ambition to become a bit like the Linux and Apache Foundations, by nurturing multiple open source projects.The OpenStack Foundation uses Zuul for its own projects, so it has a decent pedigree for complex projects at scale.As does the Netflix-derived Spinnaker, which offers similar functionality and is also now open source.

Micron has whipped out the 64-layer 5210 ION SSD – apparently the industry's first QLC NAND flash drive – opening a new front in the SSD-HDD marketing war.QLC (quad-level cell) flash stores four bits per cell, one more than today's TLC chips that use three bits per cell.The capacities of this 2.5-inch product are 1.92TB, 3.84TB and 7.68TB.The hardware has the usual 6Gbit/s SATA interface, and is aimed at the fast-access nearline data market that is served by 3.5-inch nearline disk drives.Micron claims this latest flash slab has a lower power draw and lower total cost of ownership (TCO) than other nearline disks in the highly read-intensive part of the data storage market.The 5210's performance, when compared to a TLC 5200 ECO, looks like this:

One of the main objections you might face would be the lack of references for your service’s true impact, performance, or results.You need to work slowly with these customers in order to build relations and show the added value and return on investment.You also need to extend your prospect list – there are many early adopters who are willing to take some risk with new products in exchange for enough warranties against losses, extended trial periods, or just because you managed to build the trust.I once met a customer, while working for a startup, who said that he had a problem with foreign entrepreneurs in the US because they generally were unorganized, and mainly selling “the American dream.” We had a long way to go to build trust on the personal level, but eventually, we invited him to perform a full due diligence on us to prove that foreign entrepreneurs can do a good job, too.You came when your competitor just issued the purchase order, when the market conditions were unfavorable, or just when they had higher-priority projects to finish before working with you.After that ask for keeping the door open for follow-ups every once in a while, when conditions are better.

The tablet market doesn’t perform well.But this statement is not true for the Chinese market.Recently, we saw a few amazing models such as the Teclast T8/T10 and Chuwi Hi9/Hi9 Air.This manufacturer offers the Alldocube X1 as the main rival to the aforementioned models.It’s an eight-inch tablet sporting selling points.Externally, the Alldocube X1 looks like the Teclast T8, which is considered to be the leader in this niche.

in The last month, two companies that manufacture smart suitcases closed down its activities due to the united states earlier this year introduced new regulations on luggage on airplanes.It's all about the two companies Bluesmart and the Line that we have written about here previously.Both companies report that it is the new rules about luggage on airplanes in the united states, which meant that they no longer can carry out its activities.It was January 15 as the united states imposed rules that made the baggage was transported in the aircraft cargo volume did not contain the lithium ion batteries.When all the "smart" suitcases are equipped with these batteries can be a bit svårsålda if the customers are not allowed to bring their bags on the aircraft.the Line suitcases have a battery that is going to take out of the bag, which allows these technically still may be transported in the aircraft cargo volume.

I walked to a corner of eBay's office in Manhattan to find a sign that read "Store of Ben."Just behind that sign, the e-commerce company set up a small model store filled with a bunch of items it thought I'd likely jump at buying, including Philadelphia Eagles gear, Batman toys, PlayStation and Sonos gadgets, and even children's books for my kids.This Ben-centric mini-store offered a physical representation of eBay's next step in attracting new buyers to its site.The new tool is available now in the US on iOS and Android, and coming to more countries over the summer.This personalization is powered by a survey that customers need to fill out asking them to tag any of 450 different categories, such as goth, street art, snowboarding or yoga.While the concept of a consumer survey is hardly cutting edge, eBay said it did a ton of behind-the-scenes work to marry that information with its over 1 billion active listings to compile groupings of products someone would want.

As many a crime documentary has made clear, eyewitness testimony is often much less accurate than you might think.Researchers at the University of Westminster, London recruited 38 adult volunteers, 26 of whom were women, for their study.Both groups were asked the same series of questions used by UK law enforcement when investigating a crime.Both groups were about as accurate as the other in this phase.But the virtual group was about 60 percent better at the second part of the interview, when they were asked specific questions about the crime.The virtual group also provided fewer inaccurate details, as well as less conflated information (e.g., a false memory of something that never happened).

Your brand new iPhone X ain’t that brand new anymore, and as it passes the six-month marker of its existence, one has to wonder “What’s next?” No doubt a new fleet of iPhones from Apple, but even that presumption presents yet another question posed by philosophers across the internet: “What’s the next iPhone gonna be called?” What, indeed, you great thinker.While we’re pretty much still in the dark about the name of Apple’s iPhone X successor, we’ve got a pretty decent idea about one other iPhone, the low-end SE.Reporter Evan Blass shared a cropped screenshot of a document simply stating, next to some blurred out text: “Project Name: iPhone SE (2018).” While it’s by no means a confirmation that Apple is sticking with the iPhone SE moniker for its next low-end phone, it does show that the company still believes in some form of consistency when it comes to naming its mobile devices.But what of its other products, the ones that steal the show and captivate us with flashy new features and chamfered edges?What of the cool iPhone?Below, with the help of my fellow Gizmodo staffers, is a list of likely names for the successor to Apple’s £1000 iPhone X. They’re pretty good:

BitoEX, a Taiwanese cryptocurrency platform that launched its ICO (Initial Coin Offering) on May 2, claimed to have raised $10 million in 5 hours and sold-out 175 million tokens (BITO) in 26 hours.The company told TechNode that they have raised approximately ETH 27000 in the ICO, which closed on May 3.BitoEX, launched 4 years ago, touted to dominate over 80% market share in Taiwan.The company said the funds raised in the token offering will be dedicated to its international digital asset exchange, BitoPro, which was launched in March.BitoPro plans to rollout crypto-to-crypto, fiat-to-crypto, and margin trading services in the future to offer users more ways to manage their digital assets.The company plans to expand their operations across Asia, including in India, Singapore, Malaysia, the Philippines and Japan.

ZTE ceases major operating activities of the company, as President Trump pledges to get ZTE back into businessPresident Donald Trump has stepped into the row surrounding the seven year ban on US companies supplying Chinese telecommunications maker ZTE with software and components.Trump had pledged to help China’s ZTE “get back into business”.But that seems to be too little, too late, after ZTE just announced on Tuesday that as a result of the ban, “major operating activities of the company have ceased.”ZTE had warned last month that the ban on US firms supplying it with components threatened its very survival.ZTE had earlier this month requested that the United States lift the seven year ban on US companies supplying it with software and components.

Finanstidningarna rapporterar om en kraftigt ökad förlust för ljud- och e-boksföretaget Storytel.Det hindrar dem dock inte från att släppa en nyhet på hårdvarufronten: En egen läsplatta.Storytel Reader, som den heter, landar i butikerna innan sommaren och vill ge svenskarnas e-boksläsande en skjuts.– Vår målsättning är att få e-boksläsandet i Sverige att ta fart på riktigt.Kombinationen av Storytel-tjänsten och Storytel Reader är en riktig höjdare för alla som är trötta på att binge-watcha tv-serier i sovrummet.Nu kan folk återigen läsa vid läggdags, precis som som folk gjorde före tv-streamingtjänsternas intåg, säger Jonas Tellander, vd på Storytel, i ett pressmeddelande.
