These days, keeping up with games can be a full-time job.Allow us to help by regularly selecting a game You Should Play.It might start out that way, but it quickly becomes an exciting, action-based puzzler that will have you frantically multitasking as you fling blocks haphazardly around the screen.It's also got a semblance of a storyline, which is kind of neat—it adds some character and drive to each level, and you don't feel like you're just rushing to complete the game for no reason.Blocks of the same color are good and will attach to your Chromaroid to make it grow larger; blocks of different colors are bad and will hurt your Chromaroid.To add a same-colored block to the Chromaroid, tap and drag it until it touches (it will slide into place).

We’ve indulged in some pretty mammoth gaming sessions in our time but nothing that would come close to exhausting Razer’s Atheris mouse (£55).Even with an Overwatch-ready 7200 DPI optical sensor and sturdy wireless tech, its battery will keep you firing for over 300 hours.If you do manage to wear it out, all it takes to get the Atheris back up and running is a pair of AA batteries, so you can be back to your fragging in no time.It’s designed to be completely portable too, so you don’t even have to let inconsequential things like socialising, work, or the birth of your first child get in the way of your gaming.

Kuljetusliitot tiedottavat tukevansa veturimiesten mielenilmausta ja vastustavansa "Anne Bernerin ideologista yksityistämisvimmaa".Lisäksi liitot ovat valmiita "laajempiin toimenpiteisiin", jos hallituksen suunnitelmat eivät muutu."Kuljetusliitot tukevat Veturimiesten liiton poliittista mielenilmaisua ja ovat jatkossa valmiita päättämään toimenpiteistä, joilla liikenne- ja viestintäministeriö sekä maan hallitus saadaan luopumaan suunnitelmistaan", tiedotteessa sanotaan.Tänään julkaistun kannanoton ovat allekirjoittaneet Auto- ja Kuljetusalan Työntekijäliitto AKT, Posti- ja Logistiikka-alan Unioni PAU, Suomen Merimies-Unioni SMU, Ilmailualan Unioni, Suomen Lentoemäntä- ja Stuerttiyhdistys, Raideammattilaisten Yhteisjärjestö JHL ja Rautatievirkamiesliitto RVL.Liitot ovat vielä vaitonaisia tarkemmista toimenpiteistä, mutta laajemman lakon riski on olemassa."Jos hallitus ei tässä aiheessa liikahda millään tavalla, ihan varmasti siinä tilanteessa joudutaan miettimään uusia mielenilmauksia ja toimia", kommentoi tiedotetta SMU:n puheenjohtaja Simo Zitting.

A certain portion of the internet is freaking out over a change to an important list used by ad blockers that facilitates their function.Popular coding repository GitHub received a DMCA request (the same tool copyright holders use to remove links to pirated music and movies online) to remove a domain name from the ad blocking list and consented.The blog explains that EasyList, the most popular list of domain names used by adblockers, removed the domain name “functionalclam.com” due to a DMCA removal request that was sent to GitHub.But the Digital Millennium Copyright Act only protects copyrighted works like movies and music, not domain names, right?Most ad blocking software is configurable by the user, and anyone can whitelist a site they support or blacklist a site that isn’t on the default list.Admiral’s CEO Dan Rua writes “That domain is part of the DMCA copyright access control platform Admiral provides publishers so they can engage visitors in a transparent way on the value exchange for their copyrighted content, instead of resorting to surprise ad reinsertion the way some of our competitors advocate but visitors and advertisers dislike.”

After the huge success of the tri-bezel-less Maze Alpha, the recently born Chinese company is apparently working on a new device with an 18:9 display aspect ratio, namely called Maze Comet.Here we have some renders and most of the specs; let’s check them out!The Maze Comet is said to be coming with a big 5.7-inch 18:9 display and an octa-core processor (hopefully an Helio P25), no info on amount of RAM or storage yet.What we know though is that it’ll pack a Sony IMX258 13MP image sensor and it’ll fueled by a 4000mAh capacity battery.The smartphone will be made of leather and metal, so it’ll definitely have a premium look and feel; the Comet will be available in a Deep Blue coloration.Maze states the Comet should come to the market by the end of September.

Det kommer att bli allt viktigare att ta till vara på regnvattnet i framtiden, enligt forskare från KTH.Kraftigare skyfall orsakade av klimatförändringar kan leda till översvämningar, men vattnet kan tas till vara redan från taken.På grund av klimatförändringar väntas nederbörden minska, men istället falla vid olika tidpunkter och i häftigare skurar.Men det nuvarande systemet klarar inte klarar av mycket regn på en gång.Därför har forskare vid Kungliga tekniska högskolan i Stockholm, KTH, undersökt hur de stora mängderna regnvatten kan tas till vara från taken innan de når gatan och på så sätt förhindra översvämning, rapporterar Sveriges Radio Ekot.– När det väl når gatan och rinner på trottoaren och gatan blir det förorenat av tungmetaller, så man ska helst ta vara på det redan när det rinner från hustaken, säger Bo Olofsson, professor i miljögeologi och som ingått i forskningsprojektet, till Ekot.

At last year's Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, Mercedes-Benz unveiled the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6, an 18.5-foot whopper of a concept coupe.This year, we might see a convertible version of it.Mercedes announced earlier in August that it would bring a brand new concept to Pebble Beach, and now, it's released the first teaser for it.The video highlights only a few exterior curves, but it gives us a good, long look at the interior, the curvaceousness of which is nearly the same as last year's Maybach concept.There's a chance the new concept could carry the same powertrain as the old one -- a battery-electric drivetrain good for 738 horsepower and a 0-60 time of less than 4 seconds.Its 80-kWh battery is reportedly good for over 200 miles of range by EPA measurements, not that it matters -- last year's concept was entirely immobile.

There might be good news for owners of multiple Alexa speakers.Amazon has completed testing on a multiroom audio feature, according to a report by German blog Caschys."It will probably soon be possible to use the Echoes as multiroom speakers, the music is then synchronized on several loudspeakers," Caschys wrote Monday (read the translated blog post here).Reportedly, owners will be able to "group" Alexa speakers, too, so that multiple devices can listen and respond to a single command or question.Whole-home playback is already available from the Google Home and Chromecast devices, so this would be a smart addition for Amazon's voice control speakers like the Echo.It would also make Amazon's line more competitive with the Sonos speaker system and the upcoming Apple HomePod.

Du som någon gång fått ett sår efter en olycka eller operation vet att det kan vara en jobbig period innan det läker.Ilya Pharma är ett företag som tänker lösa problemet genom en teknik som gör att såren läker fortare.Det var för fem år sedan som forskaren Evelina Vågesjö och fysiologi-professorn Mia Phillipson upptäckte den nya metoden som de hoppas ska förbättra vården.Man ändrar mikromiljön i såret så att kroppens celler blir mer fokuserade på läkningsprocessen”, säger vd:n Evelina Vågesjö.Den första studien startar med frivilliga försökspatienter på Akademiska sjukhuset i Uppsala under nästa år.Evelina Vågesjö beskriver projektet som "stort, långt och väldigt dyrt".

• Instead, find out how much your work is worth to your company.Even if you do, one way to guarantee you won't get one is to simply expect it to happen.In fact, it's up to you to track your performance and ensure that your compensation reflects it, said Joanne Bradford, chief marketing officer of online lender SoFi, on a recent episode of the "So Money" podcast.It's like a report card, the former Microsoft and Yahoo executive told host Farnoosh Torabi.Rather than assigning grades, you place monetary value on your work as it relates to the company, and perhaps even your industry."I always liked to see what my contribution to the company was and how much value I could add to the company, and then how much money I had, because it's really about your freedom and your choices," she said.

The legendary British sci-fi comic magazine 2000 AD has fostered such talents as Alan Moore, Neil Gaiman, and Grant Morrison.“Almost any British comics creator of the last 40 years has at some point in their career worked at 2000 AD,” Bishop says in Episode 267 of the Geek’s Guide to the Galaxy podcast.“And most of them got their start at 2000 AD, or it was one of the first or second jobs they had.”The best-known character to emerge from the magazine is Judge Dredd, a fascist dystopian antihero.“If that had been the first Batman movie, I think we wouldn’t be watching Batman movies.”Dredd got another chance in 2012 with the release of Dredd, written by Alex Garland and starring Karl Urban.

A number of exchanges, including popular destinations Coinbase and Kraken, valued a single bitcoin at over $3,000, an all-time high that is up $485 on the valuation one month ago.Earlier this year, Bitcoin surged to surpass $2,000 for the first time in May going on to almost reach $3,000 in June only for the valuation to crash.Over the last twelve hours, bitcoin’s value has jumped by over 10 percent as forked currency bitcoin cash has seen its valuation crash by 30 percent.Some exchanges including China’s OkCoin even put the value of one bitcoin above $3,200 right now.Finally, the surge means that the total market cap of bitcoin is more than $50 billion — $51,737,289,581 at the time of writing according to Coinmarketcap.com.One chief concern around the currency was uncertainty around the potential of a split.

If you’re still on the fence, take note: there’s a lot to like about this phone, which was first launched back during CES 2017 (hands-on here).As its name suggests, this phone brings with it augmented reality capabilities, but what, exactly, does the phone offer to make it so appealing?One example is an app that allows users to place virtual pieces of furniture into their real-life living room, enabling them to see what it looks like before they purchase.That’s only a taste of what is possible with Tango, however; Zenfone AR comes with several apps that leverage these capabilities, including apps from Wayfair and Lowes, iStaging, Measure, and Matterport Scenes.A vital part of the complete Zenfone AR package is the handset’s TriCam system, a trio of rear cameras that include a 23MP sensor, another camera sensor for motion tracking, and yet another for depth sensing.The images you see on the phone’s display come from the high-resolution 23-megapixel sensor, while the other two make it possible for Tango to bring various augmented reality experiences to the phone.

July is usually the slow month.People go on vacation after their vacation.Since some companies decide to focus their midyear efforts on France, July can emerge as a white space full of opportunity for others.If you’re a fast food chain, there are only so many topics you can cover with credibility.Last month, Etsy published a touching profile about a woman in Texas who turned to Etsy as a last-ditch effort to provide for her family.By selling rompers for kids, she made enough money to keep her husband and kids in their apartment, and eventually became the family’s breadwinner.

A fire broke out in one Uber driver's car in January just after he dropped off a passenger.Uber knowingly leased hundreds of defective, recalled Honda Vezel SUVs to its drivers in Singapore that were at risk of catching fire, the Wall Street Journal reported on Thursday (3 August).The flames that burst from the dashboard melted the interior and left a football-sized hole in the windshield.The affected drivers were told by the company that their Vezels required "immediate precautionary servicing" four days after the incident and needed to be seen the same week."The recall was done in a hush-hush affair," Alexander Yudhistira, a 31-year-old former Uber driver who had rented a defective Vezel, said.Uber's lawyers also assessed possible legal liabilities as well including possible violation of driver contracts, WSJ reported.
