Saksan maanteillä liikkuu valtava määrä sellaisia Volkswagen-konsernin valmistamia dieselmoottoriautoja, joiden järjestelmistä ei ole poistettu pakokaasuhuijauksen mahdollistavaa ohjelmistoa.Nyt näitä autoja uhkaa rekisteristä poistaminen, kirjoittaa Autonews.Kilvet pysyvät vain, jos autojen ohjelmistot päivitetään.Autot ovat Volkswageneita, Audeja, Skodia ja Seateja.VW on kutsunut noin 11 miljoonaa ajoneuvoa maailmanlaajuisesti päästöhuijausohjelmiston korjaukseen sen jälkeen, kun huijaus paljastui syyskuussa 2015.Nyt, vajaa kaksi vuotta myöhemmin, lähes 5,5 miljoonaa noin 8,5 miljoonasta Euroopassa olevasta autosta on korjattu.
As researchers race against bacteria's growing resistance to antibiotics, Im is fighting back by accelerating knowledge about how antibiotics permeate bacterial membranes and target it for destruction.Im, Presidential Endowed Chair in Health and Professor of Biological Sciences and Bioengineering at Lehigh University, is a pioneer in the development of new computer-aided biophysics methods.Biophysics aims to examine the processes in biological systems using the laws of physics and its measurement methods.He has been integral to the development of CHARMM-GUI an open-source tool that enables researchers throughout the world to generate simulations of complex biomolecular systems more simply and more precisely than previously possible.The National Science Foundation's Advances in Bio Informatics program is providing funding support for the maintenance and expansion of the web-based interface.On June 29, 2017, Im was awarded a prestigious Friedrich Wilhelm Bessel Research Award by the Humboldt Foundation to support his antibiotic research with two collaborators from Jacobs University in Bremen, Germany: Dr. Ulrich Kleinekathöfer, Professor in Theoretical Physics, and biophysicist Prof. Dr. Mathias Winterhalter.
SK Telecom believes it has cracked the security conundrum for the ever expanding IoT world with a prototype ultra-small quantum random number generator (QRNG) chip.Security is one of the biggest speed bumps the new connected world will face, as the more connected ‘things’ there are, the more entry points to a network there will be.With this prototype chip, the team have packed in a entropy source and Deterministic Random Bit Generator (DRBG), which improve cryptography at the device.“Understanding the importance of data and data security, SK Telecom has focused on developing quantum cryptography technologies to guarantee secure transmission of data in areas including artificial intelligence (AI), IoT and autonomous driving,” said Park Jin-hyo, Head of Network R Center of SK Telecom.“We will continue to work with partners, both home and abroad, to accelerate the popularization of quantum cryptography and strengthen our presence in the global market.”The team claim the QRNG chip generates truly random numbers, with no currently-detectable pattern, meaning more secure keys can be created for encryption software.
BT IoT contest declares smart building startups the winner and could bring their ideas to customersBT hopes the two winners of its Internet of Things (IoT) competition for SMBs will contribute to the creation a Building Management System (BMS) that controls equipment such a ventilation, lighting, power, security and safety systems.Norwegian startup Disruptive Technologies and Cumbrian firm Invisible Systems emerged victorious from a pool of 100 entrants to the contest, which was launched in May, and culminated in a pitching session at the BT Tower, judged by BT executives and smart city experts.BT said it had seen entries in numerous areas including buildings, asset tracking, warehouse and fleet management, data and platforms, and sensors and networks.The winners will now gain access to BT’s Research & Development (R) labs at Adastral Park in Suffolk, alongside other resources and trade missions in a bid to commercialise their ideas.It is possible the technology could be offered to customers using BT Ventures or even in BT’s own digital transformation projects.
It can be easy to put your work as the most important component of your life and forego all other responsibilities.Not only is it important to balance work with other hobbies and activities, but also health and wellness is crucial for long-term success.In order to have time for fun, health, wellness, and relaxation the work still needs to get done, so productivity allows for more to be done in less time and make the balancing act a bit easier.Rena Awada is the founder of Healthy Fitness Meals and a stay-at-home mother of multiple young children.Even if she does not finish what needs to be done, she will simply move onto the next set of tasks.Her typical routine will include getting her kids ready for school and out the door in the morning, then an hour of exercise, working until her kids come home, and then being a mother until they go to sleep.
Leaker Roland Quandt announced on Twitter that the upcoming phablet will come in the Deep Blue color option along with the already seen Black and Orchid Gray, and possibly others.Last year’s Note 7 launched in four colors, so we expect to see at least as many options this year if not more.Other things worth mentioning are the IP68 rating, 4 or 6 GB of RAM, and a fingerprint scanner that may also be strangely positioned right next to the camera, just like on the Galaxy S8.The Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge might have been two of the best phones of 2017, but the well-documented issues faced by the Galaxy Note 7 have cast a shadow over Samsung’s mobile efforts.From two fantastic smartphones to a phone that would have been near-perfect had it not spontaneously caught fire, 2016 was a year to remember and forget for Samsung, and its next flagship was always going to come under intense scrutiny.Don’t miss: Where to buy the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus

the Phone is classified as the characteristics of a basic phone, because it does not have a touch screen but it can perform simple functions, such as paying bills.india's richest man Mukesh Ambanin owned by the Reliance-telecom brings to the market practically free 4G online basic phone.Jio-the phone gets its own 1500 rupees (20 million) bail.the Phone buyer gets the money back within three years.in Addition to phone calling is free and guests can purchase about two-euro price to a month-long data packets.the Device will be in stores middle of next month.
It's been a long time since Razer was satisfied building gaming mice, keyboards, and headphones.Every January, the company shows off a crazy new computer at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas -- remember the three-screen laptop?We don't know much about the device, mind you -- only that it could be "a mobile device tailored for its consumer base of hardcore gamers," according to Bloomberg's multiple anonymous sources.If true, a Razer phone wouldn't be too surprising a development.In January, Razer purchased Nextbit, the tiny 30-person manufacturer of the Nextbit Robin smartphone, and immediately stopped sales of that device.Nextbit's team included veterans of Google and HTC, including longtime HTC design director Scott Croyle, whose LinkedIn and Twitter pages suggest he may still work for the company.
Increased interference of ethanol and methanol in the fuel would be logical.But the EU's rule on the oxygen content of the works that petroleumindustrins last line of defense, writes Björn O. Gillberg, Värmlandsmetanol.Fuel that consists of a single component, such as ethanol and methanol, burns more efficiently than gasoline.Methanol, respectively ethanol contains about 50% by weight, respectively, approximately 35% by weight of oxygen.the Methanol worked, therefore, with success as a fuel for German V2 rockets during the second world war.Used oxygen-containing hydrocarbons fuels such as methanol and ethanol reduces the engine's need of oxygen via the intake air.
Tech entrepreneur Elon Musk on Thursday said he had received “verbal” approval to start building an ultra-high-speed underground transport system linking New York and Washington that would cut travel time between the cities to about half an hour.He offered no details on what entity had green lighted the project that could result in the world’s longest tunnel.Musk, the chief executive of electric car maker Tesla Inc and rocket company SpaceX, is seeking to revolutionise transportation by sending passengers and cargo packed into pods through an intercity system of giant vacuum tubes known as the “hyperloop.”Officials in Washington and New York said they had not approved any project, and under federal rules Musk would need extensive environmental and building permits to mount such an ambitious project.Musk recently started an enterprise called the Boring Company to build transport tunnels for the system, which he says would be far faster than current high-speed trains and use electromagnetic propulsion.In tweets on Thursday Musk said:
As the UK looks to new sources of economic growth beyond Brexit, businesses and policymakers are increasingly focusing on innovation as the key to maintaining the UK’s global competitiveness and create jobs and prosperity at home.The mills that were once the engines of industry for the world are now home to new generations of wealth creators in high-growth sectors such as FinTech, healthcare innovation, precision engineering and Big Data.Yet despite these significant opportunities, the North and Midlands are still lagging their Southern counterparts when it comes to official innovation measures.This is something the country must address if it is to successfully exploit the new ideas, skills and technologies that will cement Britain’s place at the forefront of this fourth Industrial Revolution that’s now underway.Unlike other areas of economic activity, innovation - alongside increased investment and internationalisation - adds real value to our economy.It creates new market opportunities, new jobs and critically new sources of productivity - a particularly pressing issue for the UK following the publication of new ONS figures this week showing productivity slumping to its lowest level since the global economic crisis.
The Furby appeared to learn English by listening to words spoken around it and using those words to begin speaking.The government was concerned that the Furby might hear classified information and then repeat it.While there was some debate as to whether the Furby could actually record English words, it’s since been replaced by a series of smart toys that can most assuredly listen to the conversations around them and also watch the activity around them using cameras.This possibility so alarmed the FBI that the agency issued an urgent announcement on July 17 describing the vulnerability and explaining steps to take to keep the devices from being too much of a threat.The FBI is particularly concerned because young children will tell their toys all sorts of private information, thinking they’re speaking in confidence.A new presentation set for the Black Hat USA conference on July 26 covers security vulnerabilities in Segway hoverboards, which can be taken over by hijacking their Bluetooth connection.
Sure, it would never replace a laptop for video editing, coding or other marginal activities that only a tiny proportion of people do… but I could finally see how a tablet could work for, say, writing or managing emails.So I was delighted when Lenovo offered to send me a Yogabook to try.So far so ordinary, but what makes it special is the slate-like surface that attaches to the screen.Lenovo is calling the device the “Ultimate On-The-Go Creativity Tablet” and this is because of what I’m going to call the slate, for lack of a better term.If you’d prefer to draw, however, you can simply hold down on the pen button for a second or so, and the keyboard will disappear.Instead, you can pick up the included stylus pen (which as per the industry trend, is more like a pen than a pokey stylus).
iGiant bankrolls manufacturers' legal battle royale over patent license feesUpdated The four electronics factories sued by Qualcomm for not paying licensing fees have lodged their own countersuit with the backing of Apple.In a counter-complaint [PDF] lodged Tuesday in California, Taiwanese manufacturers Pegatron, Compal, Hon Hai, and Wistron allege Qualcomm is trying to force them to pay excessive royalties for patents they aren't even using in their products."This lawsuit is yet another chapter of Qualcomm's anticompetitive scheme to dominate modem chip markets, extract supracompetitive royalties, and break its commitments to license its cellular technology on fair, reasonable and nondiscriminatory (FRAND) terms," the gang's court paperwork reads."In the past two years alone, three separate foreign antitrust enforcers have declared Qualcomm a monopolist and collectively have fined the company over $1 billion."The countersuit is being lodged with the support of Apple, which has agreed to cover the costs for each of the four manufacturers should they lose in a jury trial.
Chinese telecom device maker Huawei and digital transfer services provider WorldRemit reached a deal to offer international transfer services to Huawei's mobile phone users in Africa.David Chen, Huawei's vice president for the South Africa region, said in a statement that in Africa, international transfer is a very important mobile financial service.By cooperating with WorldRemit, Huawei will directly provide the international transfer service to its users in Africa.In some regions of Africa, local residents prefer to transfer money on mobile phones and the tendency is even more obvious in some areas where traditional banking services are not yet popularized.Meanwhile, with the cooperation with Huawei, WorldRemit will be able to access Huawei's more than 100 million mobile phone accounts and provide basic banking services to Huawei mobile phone users.Huawei and WorldRemit said with the cooperation, they will lower the technical barrier for integration of mobile operator and mobile financial services provider, which will allow Huawei's all partners to rapidly provide international transfer services.
Those that can't, return in enterprise formGoogle Glass, the Chocolate Factory's shotgun wedding between technology and fashion, debuted to great fanfare on skydivers at Google IO 2012, launched with timidity in May, 2014 and collapsed under the weight of ridicule and naive expectations in January, 2015.It was a humbling flop, made more so by prognostications that sales could reach 10 million units by 2016.Google never released sales figures for its $1,500 folly, but various estimates put the number somewhere in the six figure range.Google described the end of Glass euphemistically as a "graduation," and hinted that its unloved hardware would return some day."We first saw signs of Glass' potential for businesses in the Glass Explorer days," said Jay Kothari, Google Glass project lead, in a blog post.
As Sega’s Hail Mary pass on hardware, the Dreamcast wasn’t exactly the miracle the company prayed for.But the long-dead console still has a massive fanbase, as a clever hacker who managed to port the infinitely addictive Flappy Bird to the Dreamcast’s interactive memory card recently demonstrated.The VMU, or Visual Memory Unit, was an oversized memory card that plugged into the Dreamcast’s controllers to store game data, or serve as a second-screen for some games using its built-in monochrome LCD display.The VMU also featured basic controls, and could be used as a portable gaming device if you refused to just buy a Game Boy.Dmitry Grinberg’s hack of the Dreamcast VMU includes developing an ARM chip emulator for the tiny, under-powered gaming device, allowing it to run the (infamously discontinued) mobile game Flappy Bird—very, very slowly.You might assume the game would be much easier running in slow motion, but the controls are equally unresponsive, as this video of Grinberg failing to get past the first obstacle demonstrates.
However, MyRadar has somehow become very popular within a relatively short time with over 26 million downloads.The knowledge gained enabled them to provide web-based flight-tracking services and custom mobile applications that provided value to those that needed it.Pilots are finding MyRadar useful because of its the features are bespoke to be aviation specific.This app is capable of tracking IFR flights and can show the ATC-assigned flight paths of those flights on the map.Information is also displayed detailing the impact of weather on a user’s flight or how the weather is going to affect the flight which they are tracking.Another intriguing aspect of the MyRadar weather app is that the aviation charts are offered for an affordable annual fee.
