The Mi Pad 3 is the sole Xiaomi tablet that launched way back in April 2017.Since then, we’ve heard of a refreshed Mi Pad 4 quite a few times, but we only now see a real piece of evidence as to its existence.And the clue comes from a very unusual source, for a Chinese product.The tablet from Xiaomi was spotted on FCC with model number M1806D9W by 91mobiles.However, they do add that the tablet also passed 3C certifciation in China.As far as FCC listings are concerned, they don’t usually contribute much in way of specs, however, what they do is confirm the existence of a device very well.
The wide assortment of flavourings used to spice up your vaping experience could be damaging your cardiovascular system, suggests new research released today.The study, published in the journal of Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis, and Vascular Biology, found that several common e-cigarette flavourings can directly harm blood vessels.But, as with so many similar studies, it’s hard to tell how relevant the findings are to a typical vaper.Researchers at Boston University conducted a series of experiments.The cells from both kinds of smokers were less able to perform a key function: the production of nitric oxide, a colourless gas used to dilate blood vessels.The same thing happened to non-smoker cells that were directly exposed to menthol and eugenol (a chemical used to give a clove oil flavor).
And as Xhaka suits up to represent his home country of Switzerland in its World Cup opener Sunday against mighty Brazil, he’ll need all the rest he can get.To do that, Xhaka has become a sleep science guinea pig of sorts.Under Armour, the US-based sporting apparel company that sponsors him, has probed and prodded Xhaka to find out what makes him tick when he’s not on the field.But they’re also trying some fishy-sounding next-gen tech, like special sleepwear and sheets with ceramic woven into the fabric.The material is supposed to stimulate blood flow and keep sleepers warmer—it supposedly absorbs heat from the body and re-emits it back as far-infrared radiation, and some small studies have shown that ceramic fabrics can help with arthritis and menstrual pain.But the connection with better sleep hasn't been proven—and at $200 a set, it's an investment fairly limited to pro athletes.

We live in cynical times, so it’s hard to express raw joy or enthusiasm these days without anticipating a needlessly snarky response from the peanut gallery.Nevertheless, I’m putting this out there: My excitement for this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) is genuine, and think we’re going to hear a lot of exciting announcements over the next week.Nintendo has become adapt at delivering big games within short windows after their announcements.Metroid: Samus Returns for 3DS was announced in June and released in September.So although I have tended to view Nintendo’s E3 events in the past as “just more of the same,” I’m going into this year’s Nintendo Direct enthusiastic that anything’s possible.On the new games front, I’ll be pleased (and surprised) if Metroid Prime 4 and the rumored Switch version of Ridge Racer are ready to go this year.

), some actually interesting updates (free Autopilot trial) and what felt like some super optimistic timelines (battery pack price of under $100/kilowatt hour in under two years).First of all, on the business side, Tesla shareholders voted to keep Kimbal Musk, Antonio Gracias and James Murdoch on the board despite some people's concerns that they may not be truly independent members of the board.I mean Elon Musk as board director despite protest from one guy with 12 shares.Once all the "boring stuff" was out of the way, Elon trotted out on stage in a Belstaff jacket and a Butter Robot shirt to much fanfare and applause and starts telling the assembled investors about how Tesla builds cars with love and how the company really cares.With the crowd sufficiently softened up, Musk waded in with the one-two punch of Tesla Model 3 being the best-selling premium mid-size sedan in the US and how he expects the $35,000 Model 3 to enter production by the end of the year.He also mentioned that the big T was on track to build 3,500 Model 3's per week by the end of the month.
Telecoms.com periodically invites third parties to share their views on the industry’s most pressing issues.In this piece Tony Gillick, VP Solutions Management at Openet, urges the industry to transform its approach to BSS and OSS before it’s too late.TM Forum’s recent launch of its Open Digital Architecture is good news for the industry.But with ever-decreasing ARPU, and the race to free data underway, they don’t have the luxury of embarking on lengthy, hugely expensive transformation programs to get their BSS and OSS stacks up to speed.Instead, they need an API-driven open architecture that enables them to get away from vendor lock-in and having to deal with inflexible, large vendors who will deliver projects and upgrade software on their terms.The bleak reality is that if operators are to survive in the face of rising competition from web-scale companies, it’s now or never to make that change happen, so what does that look like for operators willing to transform?

New Gartner Supernatural Square has AWS and Azure on top, IBM and Alibaba lagging and Oracle on an offensiveAnalyst firm Gartner’s 2018 Magic Quadrant for infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) has again found that Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure are the most mature clouds, but has omitted more than half of the vendors it covered last year on grounds that customers now demand more than just rented servers and storage.They demand market-leading technical capabilities — depth and breadth of features, along with high availability, performance and security,” wrote Gartner’s mages.“They expect not only ‘hardware’ infrastructure features, but also management features, developer services and cloud software infrastructure services, including fully integrated PaaS capabilities.”Given those expectations, Gartner was happy to drop eight clouds from this year’s Quadrant, farewelling Virtustream, CenturyLink, Joyent, Rackspace, Interoute, Fujitsu, Skytap and NTT.Here’s where the remainder landed on the Paranormal Polygon.
Varannan minut är hoppet att en Öresundsmetro ska rulla mellan Malmö och Köpenhamn om 17 år.Prislappen väntas landa på minst 40 miljarder kronor.Men metron har inte högsta nationell prioritet i varken Sverige eller Danmark.– Det som gläder mig är att vi har en samsyn inom regionen om att förbindelsen behövs, säger Katrin Stjernfeldt Jammeh (S), kommunstyrelsens ordförande i Malmö.Överborgmästaren på andra sidan sundet har inte heller en regering som prioriterar infrastrukturprojektet, ytterligare en förbindelse mellan grannländerna, allra högst.– Men det avvisas inte att det är ett projekt som ska lösas på lite längre sikt, säger Frank Jensen (S) och förklarar att det just nu finns så många andra viktiga infrastrukturprojekt för Köpenhamn och att metron inte behöver prioriteras just nu.
