NOMU have been manufacturing rugged phones for about 10 years now, so they obviously have some know-how on creating really durable devices for any kind of customer.The company sole intention is indeed to create phones that you don’t have to worry about, whether you drop it or not.Short introduction aside, after releasing the NOMU S10, S30 and S30 mini, the phone maker is now working on yet another really interesting device which will be named NOMU T18.The NOMU T18 will be a “professional” rugged phone with a removable external camera and Walkie-Talkie support on the hardware side.As many of their devices, the T18 will be IP68 dust and water proof and it earned the MIL-STD-810G certification, an American Military Standard.That’s pretty much everything we know about the device as of now.

Claimed 'cognitive dysfunction' to try dodge jail“Dishonest and manipulative” channel veteran Jason Tsai has been sentenced to nine months in the slammer for contempt of court.The founder and one-time boss of Enta Technologies UK Ltd (which changed its name to Changtel Solutions in 2015 and is being liquidated) lied repeatedly to the High Court, claiming his memory was in the bottom 0.1 per cent of people his age, 66, in a bid to evade the judge’s wrath.The jail time was the latest twist in a long-running case that concerned Tsai's participation in a VAT carousel fraud between 2007 and 2010 (of which he was found guilty), which left him owing millions of pounds to HMRC that the taxman has tried to recoup.And after months spent trying to pull the wool over Mrs Justice Rose’s eyes, the beak found Tsai lied to the court about:the existence of his Taiwanese solicitors

Easier containers on MS's cloud – but Linux-only for nowMicrosoft has released a preview of Azure Container Instances, a new way to deploy containers which emphasises speed and ease of use above scalability and orchestration.The company already offers an Azure Container Service, so why another option?The existing Container Service works by creating a cluster of VMs (virtual machines) configured for orchestration by a management system such as DC/OS, Kubernetes or Swarm.Although the Container Service does a good job of automating the configuration, there are awkward issues, such as keeping the VMs patched.It is also a relatively heavyweight solution if you just want to get a test containerised application up and running quickly.

The Federal Communications Commission should investigate whether Verizon Wireless violated net neutrality rules by throttling video applications on its mobile network, advocacy group Free Press says."Late last week Verizon Wireless customers started to notice something suspicious: Videos from Netflix and YouTube were slow," the call for signatures says.But Verizon later admitted that, temporary test or not, it was indeed 'optimizing' video streams."Free Press argues that Verizon's actions violate the FCC's rule against throttling.While the rule has an exemption for "reasonable network management," Free Press argues that slowing down an entire class of applications is not allowed:The FCC’s Net Neutrality rules clearly state that broadband providers cannot "impair or degrade lawful Internet traffic on the basis of Internet content, application, or service" unless it's what the agency calls “reasonable network management” for a legitimate technical purpose.

The iPhone 8’s final design and software implementation aren’t yet final, but Apple’s public moves in the past few years give us a good indication of what we’re about to get.With the next set of iPhones, we’ll get a span of prices and functionality, starting with a device that’s very similar to what we’ve got right now (in stores right this minute).There’s no other way to go once an iPhone user’s deep within the iOS universe – especially once the iPhone user has used several devices over a span of several years.If Apple’s new method of three iPhones per year continues past this year, the top-notch features of the iPhone 8 won’t take long to reach slightly more affordable models.Unlike smaller brands (often running Android), Apple’s tendency is to support the lowest-end iPhone with software updates just as long as they do the most expensive model.Or you can pay a bit less and get the best of the best from last year, and still expect software updates as you do.

2016’s Lenovo Tech World saw the introduction of the “modular” Moto Z and Moto Z Force, as well as the Tango-ready Phab 2 Pro, but one of the coolest announcements belonged to Lenovo’s foldable tablet/smartphone hybrid.Fast forward to this year’s Lenovo Tech World, and though the concept is still nowhere near ready for primetime, at least Lenovo kept working at it.When we talked to Lenovo about the foldable hybrid, the company told us that the issue was not with getting the display to fold, but how it bends out.Lenovo gets around this by using a stretchy plastic-looking cover that sits above the actual panel, but it is not exactly invisible – the cover distorts a bit at certain angles, with the distortion making it possible to see the plastic cover.In this regard, not much has changed with this year’s prototype, though Lenovo did give it a name: Folio.As with last year’s prototype, the Folio features bending points in the middle, which allow the device to change from a 5.5-inch smartphone to a 7.8-inch tablet.

Becoming untethered in space is somewhat of a nightmare for astronauts, but it can happen to planets too - when they are ejected from host stars.But there's less of them than we originally thought, apparently.Free-floating, Jupiter-mass planets no longer bound by gravity may be at least ten times less common than previously suggested, according to a study published this week.Theories of planet formation predict the existence of a population of free-floating planets that have been ejected from their parent systems.The masses of these planets are predicted to range from less than one Earth-mass to several Earth masses.A previous analysis using a technique called gravitational microlensing — which allows the study of objects that emit very little or no light — suggested there were almost twice as many free-floating Jupiter-mass planets as main-sequence stars.

The idea of geoengineering, also known as climate engineering, is very controversial.But as greenhouse gases continue to accumulate in our atmosphere, scientists are beginning to look at possible emergency measures.A new University of Washington study looks at the idea of marine cloud brightening, which a UW group is investigating as a promising strategy to offset global warming.Small-scale tests of marine cloud brightening would also help answer scientific questions about clouds and aerosols, two UW atmospheric scientists say in a paper published in July in the journal Earth's Future.This dual goal for early-stage geoengineering tests would follow the U.S. National Academies of Sciences' 2015 recommendation that any tests of geoengineering also yield a scientific benefit."A major, unsolved question in climate science is: How much do aerosol particles cool the planet?," said lead author Rob Wood, a UW professor of atmospheric sciences.

Alright, so it’s pretty bold to come straight out of the gate, claiming that you’re going to read about seven unbelievable industries, but I’m going to deliver.Their services and products may be strange, but they’re money-making machines that fill needs in the market — some of which you may even have.So, without further ado, here are seven industries that report serious revenue each year, although you might find it hard to believe …You might not know this, but the cremation jewelry industry has been around for thousands of years.When our loved ones die, we often want to stay connected to them — and one of the best ways to do this is to hold on to a part of them.Did you know that publicly traded, for-profit companies often own exhibits?

The official series trailer for Star Trek: Discovery is out, and the stakes are bigger than ever... maybe?Actually, it’s a little hard to tell what’s going on.Discovery takes place during the conflict between Starfleet and Klingons, who are rising up to assert their place in the galaxy.During the San Diego Comic-Con panel, we were told that Klingons on the show will be speaking in Klingon with English subtitles—however, in the trailer, we only see them speaking English.It’s unclear whether that was done solely for the trailer, or if it the Klingons will actually speak both languages.We also got a better look at Jason Isaacs’ captain, who Isaacs described during the panel as “probably more fucked up” than your average Starfleet officer.

In about a year and a half from now, the New Horizons Spacecraft will whizz past a distant Kuiper Belt object named 2014 MU69.This rocky relic of the ancient Solar System—which is located about four billion miles away—just passed in front of a distant star, resulting in one of the more extraordinary eclipses ever captured by scientists.Recording this eclipse, or occultation as it’s more formally known, was no accident.The New Horizons scientists who led this mission knew that MU69, a Kuiper Belt object measuring about 20 to 30 miles in diameter, would pass in front of an unnamed star during the early hours of July 17th.Mark Buie, an astronomer at Southwest Research Institute (SwRI) in Boulder, Colorado, led a team of 60 observers who helped to deploy two dozen mobile telescopes in a remote region of of Chubut and Santa Cruz, Argentina.The scientists were hoping to spot the shadow of MU69 as it moved in front of the star—an event that would last for a mere 200 milliseconds.

This year is going to be a big one for author J.K. Rowling – not only because she’s bringing an epic 20th Anniversary Harry potter exhibit to the world.This first exhibit will take place at the British Library – but we’re crossing our fingers that it’ll eventually make a world tour, what with all its history of magic and whatnot.But that’s not all – J.K Rowling will also be releasing two new “Harry Potter” books to compliment the original seven.This exhibit will take place at the British Library at 96 Euston Rd, Kings Cross, London NW1 2DB, UK.This exhibit will run during normal hours, that is 9:30 AM until 8PM Monday through Thursday, 9:30 to 6PM Friday, 9:30 to 5PM Saturday, and 11 to 5PM Sunday.The exhibit will feature more material than is just available in the first 7 “Harry Potter” books – in fact it’ll contain a history of “magic” from around the whole world, including books, manuscripts, and objects in the magical universe – our real universe.

Intel is getting out of the wearables market and will instead focus on augmented reality.That’s according to a report by CNBC, which cites “a person familiar with the matter.” Nothing has been confirmed yet, but given that rumors claiming it would abandon the industry have been circling since last year, the move does appear likely.CNBC notes that Intel hasn’t mentioned wearables on its earning calls since 2014.TechCrunch reported that the company was stepping away from fitness trackers and smartwatches back in November, but Chipzilla strongly denied it.“Intel is in no way stepping back from the wearables business.In fact, we have several products in the works that we are very excited about, as well as prior launches that highlight our wearable technology such as the TAG Heuer Connected watch and recent Oakley Radar Pace smart eyewear,” the company said at the time.

HMD Global’s new Nokia is more and more exciting than the old Nokia that refused to make Android phones.The new company is currently selling a bunch of affordable Nexus-like devices that run a pretty vanilla version of Android, and it’s preparing an assault on flagship handsets from Apple, Samsung, and everyone else.We’ve known for a while that two high-end handsets are in the works, including the Nokia 8 and Nokia 9, and the former was briefly confirmed.What looked like official Nokia 8 press renders popped online a few days ago, with the news that HMD will launch the phone on July 31st.If you needed more confirmation that a Nokia handset better than the Nokia 6 is indeed in the works, then you don’t need to look any further.HMD mistakenly published the Nokia 8 page on its Chinese website.
