A few weeks back we showed you how to make some sleek wall frames that put your favorite record covers on display.We made ours from a thick slab of exotic hardwood called bubinga, but practically any kind of wood will look great with this minimalist, flip-friendly design.Hardwood slab (roughly 1 inch thick, 10 inches wide)Miter Saw (capable of cutting 10-inch boards)Step 1: Get some wood and cut it to create your four piecesYou can embark on this project in one of two ways: either start with multiple smaller boards of the same thickness, or use one large board and chop it up to create the pieces you need.
Display Week is here, and vendors are showcasing a ton of weird and incredibly niche display technologies for almost any use case.LG is showing off four different product demos at the show this year, each with a unique concept that may eventually make their way to your home, and maybe even your phone.Without further ado, here are the four different demos LG had to show off this year.The first display shown here was a 77-inch foldable OLED.This display is foldable as well, so there was a machine bending it back and forth in the corner.The colors on this display looked vibrant and rich, and this is something I’d love to have hanging in my home.
Locate, been hanging out with for a while and still know it as ”OS X” is the ”new” system for the Mac has the opportunity to feel his age, writes Jason Snell.march 24, 2001, released Mac OS X 10.0 to the public after a year of beta testing.It was 6 270 days ago yesterday – a day longer than the old Macintosh Systems or Mac OS as it was renamed, had been out since launch January 24, 1984.the Modern, unix-based Mac OS is up to version 13, while the old Mac OS just reached version 9 (from the beginning was X in Mac OS X a little ingenious way to both the print 10 and the point on the unix background), and version 7 was released back in 1991 came just two new version numbers for the remaining 10 years.the Old Mac OS 9 lived for a while after the release of OS X, not least in the form of emuleringslagret Classic that made it possible to run old Mac programs.
This post was written by Adeo Ressi, Founder & CEO of the Founder Institute.Startups are taking over the world, and that’s not going to change anytime soon.I believe the global startup ecosystem will rebound quickly and then resume its longterm growth in a much more sustainable fashion.You are seeing a lot more "strategic" investments, and many startups returning to the angel and seed markets for second, third and fourth anemic rounds of funding.Even worse, there has been a recent flurry of lackluster acquisitions, acqhi-hires, and mergers for Founders down to their last options, just trying to save face.I would estimate that there are over 1000 seed-accelerators across the globe that simply cloned the YC/ Techstars business model, and expected similar returns without the same leadership, network, and follow-on funding opportunities that make these programs so effective.

A little earlier than its usual June refresh window, OnePlus has revealed its new flagship Android device today, the OnePlus 6.The most controversial aspect of the new design, the notch at the top of the 6.3-inch 19:9 OLED display, has already been the subject of a preemptive rationalization from the company, and fan demands have been answered with the added option to conceal the notch by putting a black bar on the screen around it.The OnePlus 6 is a little smaller than my 6-inch Google Pixel 2 XL, but it offers more vertical screen space and makes the Pixel’s bezels feel crude and chunky by comparison.Whether or not the notch is to your liking, you can’t accuse OnePlus of moving to it without sufficient forethought.The other big change with the OnePlus 6 is the introduction of a new glass back, replacing the unibody aluminum case that’s been the norm for OnePlus for a number of years.The company’s press release says that this is “the first in OnePlus’ line of flagships to feature an all-glass design,” suggesting that the metal backs of the past are going to stay in the past.
With the threat of Qualcomm litigation receding, Samsung is in talks with ZTE, among others, and ready to license its Exynos phone chips to anyone who wants them.This could lower the costs of high-end mobiles.Reuters quotes former Qualcomm, now Samsung, executive Inyup Kang as saying that Samsung is talking to "all OEMs" about licensing the SoCs.Kang is president of Samsung's LSI Logic division and led Qualcomm's modem development for 13 years.Kang sounded confident that Samsung would reveal a new licensee in the first half of 2019.Given product development lifecycles, that would mean a new third-party Exynos phone is already under development.
The Nintendo Switch may have revolutionized portable consoles but it wasn’t the first in that category.That same promise of “console gaming on the go” was made by the Sony PlayStation Vita around 6 years ago.Unlike the Switch, however, the PS Vita failed to woo gamers and developers alike, particularly in Western markets.Now it seems that the writing on the wall has appeared for the PS Vita with Sony confirming that the production of physical games for the portable console is being laid to rest.If the Wii U was Nintendo’s flop, the PS Vita was Sony’s.Although it gathered a steady stream of gamers in its home country, the console on the go didn’t amass as much attention in North America and Europe.
Subaru will launch its first-ever plug-in hybrid later this year, with a little help from Toyota.The 2019 Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid will use Toyota tech to push Subaru into new realms of fuel efficiency, while minimizing the investment the smaller Japanese automaker needs to make in a new powertrain.The new vehicle is named Crosstrek Hybrid — despite actually being a plug-in hybrid.Chrysler did the same thing with its Pacifica Hybrid minivan, and it’s possible that the naming scheme will cause confusion in both cases.Unlike conventional hybrids, plug-in hybrids can be charged from an external source, just like all-electric cars.That means plug-in hybrids can have larger battery packs, which in turn allows them to drive for several miles on electric power alone — something conventional hybrids can’t do.
There’s been a sea change in Series A investment rounds that has been gradually – but persistently – eating away at venture capital (VC) funds’ highest-ROI category investments, and the reason it’s happening may surprise you.According to Cooley’s VC trends, the median Series A valuation has moved up from $16.5 million to $23.0 million in just the past two years.(What used to be called seed-stage is now termed “pre-seed.”)You might think this is just an organic consequence of too much money chasing too few deals, especially given that the last time we saw this much VC investment was in pre-bubble 1999.Ironically, one of the most powerful changes brought about by dot-com was the democratization of angel investing in startups, taking many early stage deals off the table before VCs could get a look at them.As fans of the TV show Startup Junkies will recall, in 2007, my company at the time, Earth Class Mail, was faced with the dilemma of whether or not to accept a venture investment from Ignition Partners (the largest VC fund in Seattle at the time).
TCL has announced a one-day sale that marks its P605 Roku TV down to $500 at Best Buy.The Chinese tech firm says the deal will apply to stock at Best Buy’s retail stores and website, but the discount will only be available on May 12.Price: $499.99 at Best BuyArs Technica may earn a commission on this sale.TCL launched its latest crop of Roku TVs, the 6-Series, earlier this month.It’s still possible to listen to the TV through headphones using a feature in the Roku mobile app, however.
Riding Segway miniPLUS to work in Stockholm — first impressionsHow is this product different?You can travel up to 20km/h (12.5 mph) for ca 30km and the product weights 15kg (so you can lift it up shorter distances).In Sweden this kind of product is classed as a bike so you can travel to work with it on the bike lanes and you don’t need a driver’s license.You get some clear training in the app and it’s really intuitive to use once you find how you step up and find your basic posture and balance.I spent that time going around on a football field close to my apartment.
If you haven’t already seen the demo, please watch it below by skipping to 1 hour, 55 minutes on the video from Google's Keynote.Google Duplex isn’t designed to replace humans altogether.Initially Google Duplex will focus on three kinds of task: making restaurant reservations, scheduling hair appointments and finding out businesses’ holiday opening hours.The full details are over at the Google AI Blog, but here’s the executive summary: Google Duplex enables you to get information that isn’t on the internet.For example, you might want to know a business’s holiday opening hours but they haven’t listed it on their website, or you might want to know if a shop has a particular item in stock and it doesn’t have online stock availability.From a tech perspective, Google Duplex uses a recurrent neural network (RNN) built using TensorFlow Extended (TFX).
Apple is reportedly cracking down on apps that share user location data with third parties by suspending them from the App Store.The company is informing developers if their apps violate terms within the App Store Review Guidelines, according to 9to5Mac.According to the guidelines, apps that share location data with third parties must get explicit consent from users and state the purpose for sharing the data.Developers can reportedly resubmit their apps to the App Store once the offending code is removed.Apple is just one of many companies revisiting and revising its data policies right now.Due to the imminent arrival of new legislation in the EU, companies that gather and store personal data from European citizens in any form are currently reviewing their practices to make sure they are shipshape.
