Xiaomi’s ridiculously poor supply chain of the Xiaomi Mi 8 is making its sales super boring.This smartphone was released three weeks ago but fresh information reveals that the fourth batch of Xiaomi Mi 8 will be sold tomorrow, just two days after the third batch of this smartphone was sold.This begs the question “How many units is Xiaomi producing per batch of sales?”.The answer is not far-fetched, it is obviously way lower than the demand and this poor supply chain has given many online stores the impetus to sell this smartphone for $100 – $200 more.Although Lei Jun promised before the release of this device that the stock of Xiaomi Mi 8 is the largest among all Xiaomi’s flagships, it was sold out in 1 minute 37 seconds in the first round of sales on June 5.The second and third round of sale on June 12 and June 16 respectively also quickly sold out.

Timed with Anne Frank's 89th birthday, a new virtual reality (VR) tour of the Holocaust victim's hiding place is now available on Oculus Go and Samsung Gear VR.Anne Frank House VR takes viewers inside the Secret Annex, revealing in somber photorealistic detail where Frank and seven others, including her parents and sister, hid from 1942 to 1944.The 25-minute experience explores all of the hideout's rooms, which are furnished in the style of the times.The actual Secret Annex is empty now, but the VR furnishings help to give a sense of what it was like for the occupants to live there.The experience is also being launched as an installation at the Anne Frank House Museum in Amsterdam so that those with restricted mobility can see the Secret Annex as well.It will come to two other locations in Berlin and New York later this year.

Den just nu så heta blockkedjetekniken förväntas revolutionera allt från bank och finans till logistik, industri, och kontraktskrivning.Nu träder nya nischade startups fram, redo att hjälpa bolag och myndigheter med den nya tekniken.”Vi tror att blockkedjan är nästa stora steg efter internet och att den förr eller senare kommer att genomsyra allt.Till syvende och sist har tekniken potential att bli viktig på så fundamentala områden som demokrati och mänskliga rättigheter”, säger Håkan Birging, delägare i det svenska riskkapitalbolaget Cryptowell, som fokuserar på investeringar i blockkedjeteknik.Det är Cryptowells andra investering efter att bolaget 2017 köpte in sig i danska fintechbolaget Hiveonline, som utvecklar en finansiell plattform baserad på blockkedjetekniken."Vi tittar på visionen och drivkraften hos de startupbolag som vi investerar i. Blockkedjan är ännu i sin linda, så det är svårt att sia exakt om var den kommer att ta oss, men vi vill vara en del i utvecklingen", säger Håkan Birging.

Medelhavet har den högsta koncentrationen av plastskräp i världen, enligt en ny rapport från Världsnaturfonden (WWF).Länderna som släpper ut mest plast är Turkiet, Spanien och Italien.Rapporten bygger på en sammanställning av ett stort antal olika forskarstudier och analyser.– Framför allt vill vi uppmärksamma vilka skador plasten åsamkar djuren och de andra organismerna i Medelhavet, säger Inger Näslund, ansvarig för havsfrågor på WWF.I Liguriska havet i den nordvästra delen av Medelhavet är 56 procent av planktonorganismerna förorenade av mikroplaster.Enligt de beräkningar som gjorts dumpas 150.000-500.000 ton plastskräp årligen i haven runt Europa, varav den största andelen hamnar i Medelhavet.

Google has released a standalone Lens app in Google Play so now you can have yet another way to access the feature if your Android device doesn’t currently offer it.The Lens app has the same functionality as Google Lens does elsewhere: it uses artificial intelligence to deliver information about captured images, such as of clothes, books, and buildings.Once you open the app, it brings you to a viewfinder where Lens looks to identify nearby objects.Even though you can download it, the Lens app does not seem to be compatible with all Android devices.For example, it will work with Samsung Note 8, but not with the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus.Other users have reported the app not working on Moto Z Play, Nokia 7 Plus, and the Xiaomi Mi A1.

Sometimes it begins with an aside from a well-meaning gynecologist — or one’s impatient parents.Sometimes, it’s because a couple is ready to try conceiving and it’s proving harder than they imagined it would be.A San Francisco-based startup called Modern Fertility wants to educate women about their reproductive health much earlier in their lives, enabling them to become more “proactive” instead of reactive, says co-founder and CEO Afton Vechery, who worked formerly as a product manager at the genetic testing company 23andMe and, before that, at a healthcare-focused private equity firm in Greenwich, Conn.At both places, she learned a lot about the growing number of companies that are empowering customers with information about their own bodies.She also learned, particularly at 23andMe, about the importance of making that information affordable.Indeed, after shelling out $1,500 for tests run by a reproductive endocrinologist to get a better picture of her own reproductive health, Vechery set out to create similar tests that one needn’t be a Rockefeller to order.

Certain aspects of a neighbourhood, including its ethnic diversity and the availability of public transit, are associated with better reported well-being among residents, according to a study published Wednesday in PLOS One.Researchers used data from an existing US survey called the Gallup-Sharecare Well-Being Index.From 2010 to 2012, more than 300,000 Americans were asked about their overall well-being, including how much they enjoyed their lives.They then cross-referenced people’s individual well-being scores to the counties where they resided, hoping to find if any of the over 70 community attributes they looked at were associated with higher scores.These factors could be broken into four categories, from the demographics of a neighbourhood to the average education of its residents.Living in a county with a higher percentage of black residents, which the researchers used as a measure of ethnic diversity, was associated with greater well-being, as was living in a place where it was easier to commute to work via bike or public transit.

While many believe this has pretty much taken graphene out of the running for digital logic applications that depend on turning the flow of electrons on and off, it hasn’t stopped researchers from looking to see if there’s a way to engineer a band gap into it that will make graphene behave like a semiconductor.The pressure of Moore’s Law on silicon is too much not to look for a solution from every corner.Now a team of researchers at Columbia University has developed a graphene-based material that has a band gap significant enough that it points to the possibility of way of introducing them into graphene, but without coming at the cost of sacrificing its attractive electronic properties.In research described in the journal Nature, the Columbia researchers have created what’s known as a van der Waal (vdW) heterostructure—a combination of different two-dimensional (2D) materials held together by atomic scale forces known van der Waal forces.The researchers have provided a new level of understanding about why band gaps emerge in these vdW heterostructures, and how to modify the stacking between the 2D layers to open a much larger band gap, potentially even without pressure.The new technique employed is to apply hydrostatic (uniform) pressure to this stack of layered 2D materials.
