Airbus Group kertoo suunnittelevansa itseohjaavan lentävän auton prototyypin testaamista vuoden loppuun mennessä.Lentävä auto olisi keino, jolla pystyttäisiin välttämään pahoja ruuhkatilanteita, kertoo uutistoimisto Reuters.Sata vuotta sitten urbaani kuljetus siirtyi maan alle, nyt meillä on teknologiset mahdollisuudet siirtyä maan yläpuolelle , sanoo Airbusin toimitusjohtaja Tom Enders.Olemme kokeiluvaiheessa, mutta otamme tämän kehityksen hyvin vakavasti , Enders jatkoi lisäten, Airbusin tiedostavan, että tällaisen teknologian tulisi olla puhdasta ja välttää jo valmiiksi tukkoisten kaupunkien saastuttamista.Endersin mukaan taivasten käyttäminen liikenteessä vähentäisi kaupunkien infrastruktuurikuluja.Lentämällä ei tarvitse kaataa miljardeja betonisiltoihin ja teihin , hän ilmoitti.

Presented by ApptopiaThe app economy is maturing, and with maturity comes consolidation as well as efficiencies.We re going to see many mobile ad-tech and analytics companies get acquired this year.As a result, mobile publishers must develop for new revenue streams and increase the profits they re seeing from existing ones.For example, you might find the people in Mexico are not willing to pay what people in Germany are.Instead of missing out on the Mexican market almost entirely, companies will price in-app purchases appropriate to the specific markets.Right now the majority of downloads happen because users easily see the apps on the top charts or on the featured section when they open up their marketplace.In the past two years, both Apple and Google tried to de-emphasize top charts and move towards curation and search.Apple introduced search ads last year and Google will follow in 2017.

On September 4, 2015, 17-year old Kenney Bui s coach removed him from his Seattle high-school team s football game with a mild concussion.Bui was one of six high schoolers to die on the football field in 2015 from a traumatic brain injury, but every year millions of people suffer milder concussions while playing sports.Doctors and trainers gauge how badly you ve been banged up by instructing you to count backward from ten to one or follow a finger with your eyes.But with high-powered protein assays and microfluidic technologies, soon there will be a better way.When your head takes a hit from an airbag, or a fall, or a 300-pound defensive tackle , your brain is subjected to shear forces that can actually tear it apart from the inside—without any of the structural damage you can see on a CT scan or an MRI.Deep in the brain s white matter, tissues of different densities pull and strain against each other as they accelerate and decelerate at different speeds.

It appears Amazon may be up to another one of its mysterious, experimental projects.It s been discovered that the company has filed a request with the FCC for permission to test wireless communication technology in areas of Washington, all without stating the exact purpose.There are a few hints that the tests could be related to Amazon s desire to begin drone deliveries, but the company only says it involves innovative communications capabilities and functionalities.The FCC request mentions that the tests will take place over a five month period in Amazon s Seattle facilities, as well as outdoors in Kennewick, Washington.Other specifics include that temporary base stations will transmit for no more than 5 minutes per hour per day, and that the tests will be limited to a 5 kilometer radius.Interestingly, the request was filed on behalf of Amazon by Neil Woodward, a former NASA astronaut who now works as a senior manager for Amazon Prime Air.

Ett återkommande rykte om Samsung Galaxy S8 är att telefonen har väldigt tunna ramar kring alla fyra sidor av skärmen.På så vis hålls yttermåtten nere och användare får en större panel utan att telefonen i sig blir klumpig.De fysiska och kapacitiva knapparna sägs ha fått stryka med, delvis för att ytan under skärmen blivit så pass liten.Samsung satte rekord i skärmstorlek i förhållande till yttermåtten redan med Galaxy Note 7, något Xiaomi Mi Mix bräckte senare på hösten.Sydkoreanska reklamfilmer från Samsung Display styrker nu ryktena.Telefonen som visas i videorna är naturligtvis inte Galaxy S8 men telefonen har sannolikt en liknande design, med tunna ramar och avsaknad av hemknapp.

Something old and something new is KEF s motto at CES 2017, as the company has given its popular LS50 bookshelf speakers a modern upgrade for the new KEF LS50 Wireless active speakers.Like virtually all Hi-Fi speakers, the LS50 must be plugged into a wall outlet to source power for internal amplification.That said, KEF s new setup cuts out a lot of the clutter – i.e., outboard amplification, speaker wires, and the necessity for a wired sound source – all while maintaining high performance and a gorgeous aesthetic.The speaker cabinets come in three shades — black, sparkling silver, and John Lennon piano white.Inside the cabinets, each speaker boasts a 1-inch vented aluminum dome driver set inside a 5.25-inch magnesium-aluminum alloy driver, with KEF s Uni-Q time-correcting DSP crossover designed to sync the sound for reduced latency and phasing.The speakers are impressively hefty when you pick them up – usually a good thing when you re talking about Hi-Fi performance.
