USB-C headphones may already be a thing of the past, but there are still plenty of people who only have a single port on their phone.While the category had a slow start and an even quicker death, there are still a few notable options that might be worth your money depending on what you’re looking for.Libratone Q Adapt USB-C headphonesReasons to consider the Libratone Q Adapt USB-C headphones:The Libratone Q Adapt USB headphones feature 4 levels of adjustable active noise cancelling which, while not spectacular, get the job done with the right set of eartips.The USB-C port allows for an instant connection to the Google Assistant.
In spring 2007, David Narkevic, a physics student at West Virginia University, was sifting through reams of data churned out by the Parkes telescope—a dish in Australia that had been tracking pulsars, the collapsed, rapidly spinning cores of once massive stars.But buried among the mountain of data, Narkevic found an odd signal that seemed to come from the direction of our neighboring galaxy, the Small Magellanic Cloud.Although it flashed only briefly, for just five milliseconds, it was 10 billion times brighter than a typical pulsar in the Milky Way galaxy.It was emitting in a millisecond as much energy as the sun emits in a month.What Narkevic and Lorimer found was the first of many bizarre, ultra-powerful flashes detected by our telescopes.Soon after detecting the burst, Lorimer asked his former graduate adviser Matthew Bailes, an astronomer at Swinburne University in Melbourne, to help him plot the signal—which to astronomers is now a famous and extremely bright energy peak, rising well above the power of any known pulsar.

Humankind has gone there a few times now, but nothing has seemed to capture the imagination—or, at least, the American imagination—like the Apollo 11 mission.It happened 50 years ago this week.We celebrated here at WIRED Transpo by wondering what a “moon shot” is these days.And by exploring what went wrong, and what could go wrong in the future, if our satellite system went down, as Europe’s Galileo did this week.Stories you might have missed from WIRED this weekThe Air Force’s new Sikorsky combat rescue helicopter was built to carry the wounded, not missiles.

Seung Lee has created a tangible, very soft representation of his baby’s first year of sleep patterns in the form of a knitted blanket.Lee collected the sleep data by manually logging it with the Baby Connect app, and used JavaScript and Python to convert the data to visualize the knitting pattern.He then built a browser-based HTML/Javascript tool that kept track of the stitch colors and allowed him to reference it wherever he was knitting from.The result is The Sleep Blanket, a beautiful keepsake that tells the story of the baby and parents’ first year together.The 42 x 45-inch blanket is comprised of 185,000 stitches and took Lee more than three months to complete.With each row representing a single day, the top row marks the day the baby was born, and the bottom row is the baby’s first birthday.

In the very early morning hours on Saturday, July 20, channels owned by CBS Corp. went dark on DirecTV, DirecTV NOW, and AT U-Verse, the company has revealed.This blackout impacts AT customers in a number of major US cities, as well as DirecTV NOW subscribers who would ordinarily receive access to a total of 117 CBS affiliates and stations.Sports and more are also impacted on the DirecTV services.The blackout started at 2AM ET on Saturday, also impacting CBS Sports Network nationwide on DirecTV and DirecTV NOW, plus the Smithsonian Channel on DirecTV.In a statement, CBS indicated that a business dispute between it and AT is the source of the issue.‘After months of negotiations,’ the corporation said in a statement, ‘CBS is simply looking to receive fair value for its popular programming and is proposing economic terms similar to those that AT’s competitors have accepted in hundreds of our recent distribution agreements.’

Google’s forthcoming Pixel 4 series smartphones will have giant bezels on the front of the device containing space for some kind of mystery component, according to images leaked on Twitter.Per the Verge, the leaked images (from prolific tipster Ice Universe, via 9to5Google) purport to show mockups for screen protectors from the forthcoming line of phones.The images show five cutouts on the 'forehead' bezel, which 9to5Google says are likely for two cameras, a widely expected facial recognition sensor, the speaker and (by far the largest) a wide one on the right-hand side that could be for a 'Project Soli' radar sensor.9to5Google has previously reported that sensor, which is expected to be included in the Pixel 4 line, could be used for “anything from gesture-based control while driving to new Assistant interaction methods” and seems like a reasonable guess as to what could fill that real estate.@OnLeaks and iGeeksBlog issued leaked renders of what the finished product is expected to look like, though they noted there is still no official explanation for what the big cutout on the upper right side is for.And finally comes your first complete look at the Google Pixel4!

The latest iPhone 11 rumors are coming to life with more details about the controversial camera bump, thanks to a new video from Unbox Therapy.An iPhone 11 clone in the fleshThe iPhone 11 mock-ups seem to be getting more realistic as we inch closer to Apple's next launch event in September.This week, Lewis Hilsenteger from Unbox Therapy posted a video in which he shows a real-life representation of what the iPhone 11 will look like based on all the rumors we've seen so far: a three-camera array on the back and a similar design to the previous XS models.In the video he points out why this particular model is a more-accurate representation of the rumors.It looks slimmer than the bump on the existing XS.

The iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR phones are updates to last year's iPhone X, 8 and 8 Plus.The iPhone XS retains the familiar design of the iPhone X, including a 5.8-inch OLED display and stainless-steel sides.Apple also offers a larger version of the XS with a 6.5-inch OLED display called the iPhone XS Max.With a footprint about the same size as the iPhone 8 Plus (though the older phone has a smaller 5.5-inch LCD display), the iPhone XS Max has the largest display found on any current iPhone.The iPhone XS and XS Max come in silver, space gray and gold.Apple opted for more of a straw-colored gold this time than on previous gold iPhone models, which skewed closer to copper.

Imagine being in a situation where your car has gone off the road and into a lake or a pond, you're conscious, but the vehicle is going underwater.You stay calm, go to reach for your little neon-orange window hammer, and swing at the glass of your driver's side window.You swing again, but still, nothing shatters.It's too late to open the door, you're stuck.Part of the reason for that is that many cars on sale today no longer have tempered glass side windows, having switched to laminated glass for safety reasons (we'll explain more later).The other reason is that some of the glass-breaking tools being sold just don't work as advertised.

Two years ago a novelist and as-yet-unproduced screenwriter named Nic Kelman went to work for Wizards of the Coast, the company that makes the popular collectible card game Magic: The Gathering.Kelman’s job, though he might not put it this way, was to write a grimoire—a kabbalistic story bible.That has happened for comic books, for literature, even for toys, heaven help us.But can a famously intricate game turn into a story?Make it reasonable to produce Magic novels, Magic comic books, even—you saw this coming—an animated series on Netflix, produced by the people who wrote and directed the last two Avengers movies, to debut next year.Magic certainly has all that.

I appreciate a good cup of coffee, but I love a reliable and easy coffee machine.Despite having a countertop packed with espresso machines for months, I had never tried all-in-one, super automatic espresso machines.It seemed like a stretch that any coffee machine would cost more than $1,000.Some months back I finally caved and pulled in two of the more popular fully automated machines.Both the Magnfica S and Incanto grind, compress, brew, and dispense espresso with the tap of a button.With a typical (less super) espresso machine, you must grind your own beans or buy them ground, measure and pack a shot’s worth of grounds into a portafilter, and lock the portafilter in.

Saturday's wild unveiling of the Marvel Cinematic Universe's Phase 4 at San Diego Comic-Con 2019 might have been your first time hearing about he Eternals -- set for release Nov. 6, 2020.They're the next superpowered group to join the MCU and Marvel Studios sure has assembled a superpowered cast to get everyone interested in this cinematic debut.Marvel Studios head honcho Kevin Feige introduced the cast and director Chloe Zhao at the Marvel Studios panel.Her previous film, The Rider, got a score of 92 on CNET sister site Metacritic.But it's also a naturalistic indie film, a far cry from the effects-driven banging and crashing of a Marvel movie.She'll no doubt bring a cool sensibility to the Eternals.

Sky TV deals have been a bit dry in recent months but we've certainly got one for you today that was well worth the wait.You can save 26% (£162) on the price of a Sky TV bundle with both the Entertainment base package and the Ultimate on Demand add-on.Ultimate on Demand is Sky's new box set beast.Not only does it include the excellent collection of Sky Box Sets, but also a Netflix subscription.And yes, if you already have Netflix, you can swap over your existing account, so you don't have to rebuild your watchlist or anything like that.This double whammy of services was already great value at the previous price of £12 a month as it was cheaper than the old prices of paying for Sky Box Sets as a bolt on and your own Netflix sub bought separately, but with this deal that £12 cost is now £3 a month.

UAE telecom operator du is set to launch high-definition video calling services on its 4G LTE and 5G networks, not app dependent, by end of the year.The video calling service over 4G LTE network is known as ViLTE and over 5G is known as video over new radio.“We have successfully tested the feature on our networks and working towards obtaining all necessary approvals, internally and from TRA, to start offering the service to the customers,” Saleem Al Blooshi, Chief Technology Officer at EITC, the parent company of du, said in an exclusive to TechRadar Middle East.According to the Global Mobile Suppliers Association, 257 smartphones from 36 vendors globally support ViLTE capabilities, expect Apple’s iPhones, as of February 2019.However, telecom operators have tied up with over-the-top (OTT) apps such as Botim, C’Me and YzerChat to provide voice and video calls to subscribers for a monthly fee of AED 50 for mobile users and AED 100 per month for WiFi users at home.“The OTT apps such as BoTim, YzerChat and C’me have different marketing techniques but our contract will be with the customers with a monthly plan,” Al Blooshi said.
