Another week, another go at reinventing the ZX Spectrum, with a new reworking up on Kickstarter and already through its funding target thanks to looking practically finished, particularly amazing and ready to roll out of the factory.This is the ZX Spectrum Next, which is being pitched as an entirely new form of personal computer that just so happens to be completely compatible with the original home machine.The headline news is that industrial designer Rick Dickinson is behind the outward appearance of the machine, and he's a former employee of Sinclair Research Ltd and therefore the designer of the cases of the ZX80 and ZX81, and both machines' bonkers keyboards.As for the hardware inside, the team already has a functional prototype and is promising support for tape loading, CRT output as well as HDMI, and the option to add a Raspberry Pi Zero as a slave co-accelerator board, whatever that may mean.And best of all, the Spectrum Next board fits inside the old cases (with a bit of drilling), so you can have the new machine in the classic box.And it's real and works and should be out in mainboard-only form this year, followed by a boxed product version next January.

Hello I am currently working with an insurance agency for my marketing job.I'm new to the insurance field so I'm not entirely up to date on how the process works.We are in the process of revamping our website so I've been thinking about pushing us towards instant quotes using a program like EZlynx, but the people here are a bit more traditional.I've talked with a few coworkers and the problem they have is that these programs usually aren't as accurate, as well as don't completely take in all the factors that they should.However I feel that we lose a lot of conversion when leads see that they have to wait for an email from us instead of getting their quote automatically.Does anyone have experience with something like this?

Plenty of TVs call themselves "smart," but most of them use that cloud connectivity solely for pushing firmware updates and streaming content from sources like Netflix.That's fine if you're hoping to catch up on the latest season of House of Cards, but it doesn't do you much good if you're looking for a TV that can serve as a smart home centerpiece.For many of us -- apartment-dwellers in particular -- our TV is one of the fanciest things we own, and something that we use just about every day.With a full-size display, remote controls and built-in Wi-Fi, what's to stop a smart TV from commanding the connected home, or syncing up seamlessly with things like smart lighting and voice control platforms for next-level in-home entertainment?The smart hubs that weren'tInteraction between smart TVs and connected home gadgetry is a two-way street.

Enligt sporadiska rapporter från tidiga kunder i Sydkorea är en barnsjukdom för Samsung Galaxy S8 en rödaktig skärm.Samsung menar att skärmens vitbalans kan justeras i inställningarna, men vissa kunder har enligt utsago en panel som inte går att korrigera.Hur utbrett problemet är kan vi inte svara på och ingen massproducerad smartphone är helt utan defekta exemplar.Korea Herald spekulerar att den rödaktiga framtoningen kan bero på Samsungs nya Deep Red AMOLED, som sägs utnyttja två subpixlar: röd-grön och blå-grön.För att balansera upp det dubbla gröna har Samsung enligt utsago gjort det röda djupare och starkare.Vi återkommer om det dyker upp rapporter om rödaktiga skärmar utanför Sydkorea.

I was contacted by a friend to help their business which is a high end multi brand clothing store based in a wealthy area, the target market is virtually surrounding the business.It has been in business for 6 months and has been doing well.The website exists to drive clients into the store, it doesn't offer online purchases nor are their product pages which I believe should change as you obviously want to see what the store offers before heading there.My three areas to focus on are:Focus on returning business - incentivise clients to return - discounts, vouchers for local businesses e.g spend over X recieve a voucher for a facial at a local spa, invite clients to a champagne night, private personal stylist.New clients - receive x discount of off your first purchase, flyer drops in the area, a welcome evening invite a friend for a glass of fizz and visit the shop.

High-precision inkjets pump out custom-tailored medical implants at the press of a button.But there’s a new frontier in 3D printing that’s only beginning to come into focus: food.And the industry’s luminaries aren’t stopping there — they think 3D food printers could improve the nutritional value of meals, produce intricate sculptures out of everyday foodstuff, and solve hunger in regions of the world that lack access to fresh, affordable ingredients.The basics of 3D food printingMost 3D food printers are deposition printers, meaning they deposit layers of raw material in a process known as additive manufacturing.Many use a combination of nozzles, powdery material, lasers, and robotic arms to make sugar sculptures, patterned chocolate, and latticed pastry.

Förra året investerade Microsoft i 10 miljoner strängar med syntetiskt DNA från företaget Twist Bioscience, det i förhoppningen om att utveckla en effektiv teknik för att lagra data i strängarna.Nu rapporterar sajten Zdnet att Microsoft bestämt sig för att köpa ytterligare 10 miljoner strängar till projektet.Sedan Microsofts första DNA-inköp säger sig företaget ha tagit fram en allt mer effektiv teknik för att lagra data i strängarna, bland annat ska de förra sommaren ha lyckats spara 200 megabyte data på en yta mindre än spetsen på en blyertspenna.Läs också: Tusentals miljarder gigabyte data kan lagras i DNA - men det kostar skjortanI dagsläget är DNA-lagring en väldigt tidskrävande och dyr metod, men om de hindren undanröjs tror forskarna att tekniken kan bli vida använd.Speciellt då lagringsutrymmet kan hålla upp till 2 000 år utan att brytas ned och att en exabyte kan lagras i bara några gram.

After Doug Storer tripped on a pothole while jogging in the dark four years ago, he and his wife Renata got the idea for Night Runner, a pair of rechargeable LED lights that clip onto running shoes and illuminate the trail ahead.They sunk $30,000 they raised from friends and family into a prototype, then collected enough from a Kickstarter campaign to get the company off the ground.Their first big break came when a friend helped them score a spot on the TV show Innovation Nation, which propelled sales and gave them the confidence to audition for Shark Tank.At their taping in June 2016, after a bidding war between the sharks, the Storers chose Robert Herjavec, who offered $250,000 for 15% of the company.Doug Storer: I was training for my fifth marathon in 2013.Because of the Florida heat, I was running in the dark and I tripped on a pothole.

The cyberweapons, which are now publicly available, can easily hack older versions of the OS.The Shadow Brokers, a mysterious hacking group, leaked the files online, setting off worries that cybercriminals will incorporate them in their own hacks.He’s been among the researchers looking over the files and has found they contain about 20 different Windows-based exploits -- four of which appear to leverage previously unknown software vulnerabilities.Each exploit works as a program that takes advantage of a security flaw.Researchers are still examining the leaked files, but the exploits appear to work on older Windows versions including NT, XP and Windows 7.However, computers running Windows Server are particularly at risk, Hickey said.

"Rogue One" may have filled in the gaps about the Death Star's history, but the latest Star Wars film isn't without fault.In a YouTube video posted Tuesday, Honest Trailers takes a satirical look at the characters in "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story."The narrator starts off by making fun of fans who often misspell the movie's title as rouge, as in the color.The video also notes that lead character Jyn Erso can't be called a rebel if all she does is follow what her father, surrogate father and co-workers tell her to do.The parody trailer also calls out the fact that the droid K-2SO has "more personality than any of the human characters."The Honest Trailers gang jokes that the Stormtroopers may have different armor than in other Star Wars movies, but they are still lousy shots, easily killed and often beaten with sticks.

Much like it did with Translate, Google has been gradually incorporating its various services straight into search results for easy access – and the latest one to make the cut is its dedicated URL submission feature.As spotted by Search Engine Land, the tech giant has updated Search to include an easy-to-access URL submission form at the top anytime you search for ‘Submit URL to Google.’We’re not sure when the company added the feature, but the new addition essentially works exactly like the regular submission form – with the exception that it shows directly in search results now.All you have to do to submit a link is fill in the blank space with the page you want to index and pass the ‘I’m not a robot’ reCAPTCHA safety measure.The Big G will then review the page and see whether it wants to index the URL so other people can easily find it in their search results.Read next: Understand what your business numbers mean with the Ultimate Data and Analytics Bundle

Creating or upgrading a home theater setup often comes down to one major question: what kind of TV should I get?Once you’ve got a better grasp on LED and LCD TVs, check out our list for the best TVs you can buy for suggestions of our favorite picks of what’s currently available.These panels are typically composed of two sheets of polarizing material with a liquid crystal solution between them, so when an electric current passes through the liquid, it causes the crystals to align so that light can (or can’t) pass through.Now, all LCD TVs use LED lights, and are colloquially considered LED TVs.Within this lighting type there are a few different configurations, including: LEDs along just the bottom; the top and bottom; left and right; and along all four edges.LCDs can’t completely prevent light from passing through, though, even during dark scenes, so dimming the light source itself aids in in creating deeper blacks and more impressive contrast in the picture.

Officially, April 11 will be the day that Microsoft begins sending out the Windows 10 Creators Update to PCs.But Microsoft said Thursday that advanced users can get Windows 10 Creators Update on April 5, about a week before April 11—and you don’t have to be on the Insider program, either.What Microsoft appears to mean by "advanced user" is anyone willing to take the initiative to download the update via the Update Assistant, rather than wait to have the Windows 10 Creators Update pushed to your PC via Windows Update.Microsoft also revealed the date when the Windows 10 Creators Update will begin pushing out to Windows phones: April 25.In this case, Microsoft will again send out the Windows 10 CU update in phases, presumably to newer phones like the HP Elite x3 first.Adding this new information, the Windows 10 rollout schedule currently looks like this:
