Scientists have been researching what attracts annoying mosquitos to humans.The team of researchers from Florida International University’s (FIU) Laboratory of Tropical Genetics has identified the olfactory receptor that is used to detect odors in Aedes aegypti mosquitoes.This type of mosquito is known to transmit sometimes deadly diseases such as yellow fever and Zika.The newly identified receptor is called Ionotropic Receptor 8a or IR8a.One of the researchers, biologist Matthew DeGennaro, says that science has known for 40 years that what attracted the insect was sweat and lactic acid.However, no one knew how the insect sensed those things.
Google’s ubiquitous email service has now been around for 15 years, so to celebrate this milestone, Gmail is getting a couple of important new features.The first big addition to Gmail is actually something people have been asking about for years: the ability to schedule emails.Now, when you’re finished writing an email in Gmail, instead of simply hitting the Send button, you’ll also have the option to set a specific time for that email to go out, including time suggestions like “tomorrow morning” or “Monday.”One of the main goals behind Gmail’s new scheduling feature is to help people have a healthier work/life balance, with the idea being that you can use the scheduling function to avoid sending out work emails late at night and stressing out your coworkers.The other big addition to Gmail is the expansion of Google’s Smart Compose feature to Gmail’s mobile versions.Gmail for Android will be the first mobile app to get the update, with Smart Compose slated to hit Gmail for iOS sometime later.
A few years ago, he convinced Jay Ong, the head of Marvel Games, to entrust him with Iron Man.Payton’s studio, Camafloj, finally revealed what it was doing this week with Iron Man VR.I talked to him at a recent Sony event about making the Iron Man of his dreams and bringing it to the world.I knew I’d love to work with Marvel and it seemed like they wanted to work with us on a VR game.If you include contract help at the moment, we’re well over 60 people on the game right now.You can fly and shoot with those.
Klaus, Number Five, and the rest of the Umbrella Academy are returning for more adventures on Netflix.The streaming service confirmed that a second, 10-episode season of The Umbrella Academy is on the way, posting the announcement on Twitter along with a brief video teasing the return of the hit show.The announcement did not include any mention of an expected premiere date for season 2, though.The Umbrella Academy just got confirmed for Season 2, and if anything happens to Five we riot.One of 2019’s surprise hits for Netflix, The Umbrella Academy followed a group of children born under mysterious circumstances on the same day in 1989 at the same time around the world, who were then adopted by an eccentric billionaire and turned into a team of child superheroes.After disbanding the team during their teenage years, the six surviving members of the team reunite decades later when their adoptive father dies, only to have old wounds resurface.
It seems that things are starting heat up for Motorola, even if they’re just rumors.The company may have quite a few smartphones in the works or just two with different names.One of those is the expected Moto P40 series in China that may make its way internationally as the second gen Motorola One phones.Now renders of the Moto P40 Play have landed revealing a smartphone that may have trouble appealing to consumers in this day and age of bezel-less phones.The Moto P40 Play, which may be known as the Motorola One Power 2, looks pretty much like your average smartphone.There are plenty of bezels to go around the 5.6-inch screen, complemented by a very generous chin at the bottom.
One of Google's top AI scientists has jumped to Apple.Ian Goodfellow, one of Google's top minds for artificial intelligence developments, in March joined Apple as a director of Machine Learning in the Special Projects Group, according to his LinkedIn profile.CNBC earlier spotted the move.Goodfellow is considered the father of an AI technology called generative adversarial networks, or GANs, according to CNBC.The tech has been used to generate deepfakes, video forgeries that make people appear to be doing or saying things they never did.Neither Google nor Apple immediately responded to requests for comment.
Huawei recently revealed its new flagship Supercamera Phone series, the Huawei P30 Series.The series are the company’s most advanced camera smartphones to date and include innovations that will set new bars in both photography and videography.One of Huawei’s core values is being consumer centric and placing users at the core of its innovation strategies in order to offer then the latest technologies and a better experience with every phone launched.With the P30 series, Huawei has proved that it listened to its user’s feedback when it comes to using Snapchat in the Middle East and has brought in changes that will bring an entirely optimized experience.Users will now be able to experience higher quality in both photos and videos complete with better resolution and improved video stabilization.This promises not only the best of Snapchat stories and posts, but also videos that are not blurry or hazy.
One of the things that irk some users the most about notches is that they are pretty much dead space that eats into the screen.Not that there would be much screen space around it otherwise.Somewhat ironically, Samsung’s punch hole displays have sparked some creative ways to use that space, one of which is a battery indicator.A new Notch Pie app tries to do the same for phones with waterdrop notches but it takes a bit of work to get it right.Perhaps “a bit” is an understatement.It actually takes a lot of work to perfectly position the indicator under the notch.
One of the first things that new computer users are warned in the age of external USB storage is to “eject” them before removing them.On Windows, that usually means going through the “Safely Remover Hardware” option.While that may have been the advice for generations, it may no longer be technically necessary on Windows.So starting version 1809, Windows 10 will default to a mode that will let you remove USB storage any time you want.The technical reason for safely removing USB sticks and hard drives before pulling them out is to ensure that any unwritten or unsaved data is saved to storage.Failure to do so would result in data loss or corruption and, in case of hard drives, potential mechanical damage.
How do you fix a satellite that’s floating 22,000 miles above the Earth’s surface?The satellite in question was the Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO), which launched in 2010 with the important goal of studying the Sun and the effects of solar activity on Earth.This is important for all sorts of reasons — not least because solar storms can knock out GPS satellites, shut down electrical grids, and scramble communications.As a result, NASA called in experts from IBM, SETI, Nimbix, Lockheed Martin, and its own Frontier Development Lab to see if they could solve the problem from Earth using cutting-edge artificial intelligence.Could they figure out how to use data from the SDO’s remaining two instruments — its atmospheric imaging assembly and helioseismic and magnetic imager — to work out the missing ultraviolet radiation measurements.“One of the biggest challenges was to find the optimal A.I.
The company has its share of high-end headphones, but Audio-Technica also makes some of the best cans you can find for $100 or less.One of our favorite pairs, the bassy Audio-Technica ATH-M40X, is on sale right now, letting you score it for even cheaper.The Audio-Technica ATH-M40X sits in a nice “sweet spot” on the price and functionality spectrum, nesting between the budget-minded ATH-M30X and the higher-end ATH-M50X.These are ideal for someone looking for a pair of headphones that are a cut above “cheap” models but aren’t overkill in terms of cost.The closed-back, over-ear design with leatherette cups is comfortable and blocks out ambient noise (while also ensuring that people around you won’t hear every detail of what you’re listening to at the moment), also making them a solid choice for day-long use.Our review team ranked the ATH-M40X high among the best sub-$100 headphones on the market, but what these headphones are particularly notable for is their excellent bass response – an area where a lot of affordable cans struggle.
For 12 years, Amazon's Kindles have been successful by operating on a strict "less is more" principle.Every time I download a free library book, I marvel at the conjunction of affordable technology and public policy that disseminates books so widely and easily.Last year, if you’d asked me if the lights and higher-resolution screen was worth the extra $40, I would’ve said yes.But this year’s $90 standard Kindle is small and affordable.Unless you really like reading in the tub, this is the best entry-level e-reader you can buy right now, and it's less than $100.For the past four days, I’ve been reading on the new Kindle and listening to books on Audible.
Maserati may not be bringing any new cars to the New York Auto Show next week, but that doesn't mean it's showing up empty-handed.The company announced on Wednesday that it would be debuting both its One of One customization program and its collaboration with fashion house Ermenegildo Zegna.Maserati's One of One program -- somewhat ironically -- isn't especially unique in the world of high-end cars.It's broadly similar to Ferrari's Tailor Made program or Porsche's Exclusive Manufaktur in that it offers thousands of customization options for those willing to spend some extra cash.Maserati will debut the program by handing over the keys to a custom Levante GTS to an as-yet-unannounced celebrity during the show.The more interesting of Maserati's two announcements for New York involves its partnership with Ermenegildo Zegna and that company's work on a new leather interior for the brand.
In addition to the Fortnite version 8.30 update released this morning, Epic updated the battle royale game’s Team Rumble mode, making a number of big and small changes.One of the biggest changes was an increase to the number of players a team must eliminate to win a match: it’s now 150 instead of 100.Nearly a dozen other changes have been made, as well.In addition to increasing the number of eliminations needed to win a match of Team Rumble, Epic also changed the final circle radius from 20,000 to 12,500.This provides less space within the Storm, something the company implemented to “promote a more chaotic game.” This should cut down on the instances of teams spending many minutes hunting for a lone player hiding in a structure.In addition, Epic removed the 1-minute delay from when the first circle would shrink — this, too, is designed to get players into combat and make the game more exciting.
There are probably three holy grails of mobile devices: a foldable phone/tablet hybrid, a flexible/deformable device, and a transparent tablet.One of those has more or less become a reality but the other two have yet to even see a prototype.That’s not stopping companies from filing patents left and right in a race to “reserve” ideas for future use and it seems that LG has just been granted one of the most ambitious one of all, a foldable device that is almost all transparent screen.LG actually applied for this patent in late 2015, long before we’ve even seen prototypes of foldable devices.But while foldable phones and tablets are all the rage, LG dared to dream even bigger and made its foldable device all screen, front and back, both transparent as well.There are, of course, design and engineering problems to consider in this idea, least of which is the foldable screen itself.
One of the most debatable point is: “Why do I need a website when I can just use Facebook to promote my business?” Things are rather easy when you only rely solely on social media but is it really enough?The first thing that comes to mind with Facebook is: It’s just a social media platform.Moreover, it also gives you full access of your own design and helps to promote your brand at 100%.With a dedicated website, you gain full control on the design elements such as font types, colors, layout etc.On Facebook, it is just simply an application, you can set things like profile photo and cover photo.Of course, you can also link your other social media accounts into your website, Facebook is one of them!

It happened at Fenway Park last night, and the FAA is not happy.The illegal flight took place last night during a Red Sox-Blue Jays game at Fenway; the drone, a conspicuously white DJI Phantom, reportedly first showed up around 9:30 PM, coming and going over the next hour.One of the many fans who shot a video of the drone, Chris O’Brien, told CBS Boston that “it would kind of drop fast then go back up then drop and spin.At one point it was getting really low and I was wondering are they going to pause the game and whatever, but they never did.Places where flying is regularly prohibited, like airports and major landmarks like stadiums, often have no-fly rules baked into the GPS systems of drones — and that’s the case with DJI.In a statement, however, the company said that “whoever flew this drone over the stadium apparently overrode our geofencing system and deliberately violated the FAA temporary flight restriction in place over the game.”
One of the major pain points of our review of the Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus was the in-display fingerprint sensor.We found it slow and inefficient enough of the time to be noticeable.Now that the device has been out for a while, many users are complaining of the same thing.Samsung must be listening, because it is now pushing out a patch to the Samsung Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus that allegedly will make the sensor faster and better than ever (via SamMobile).The biometrics software update which includes the new patch is distributed via the Galaxy Store.Since that’s the case, there’s no way to manually trigger the update; you have to wait around until it makes its way to your device.
Honor has announced that the Honor 20 series of phones will launch in the UK on May 21, which will be the global debut of the handsets, rather than them seeing an earlier launch in China.The date was announced by a cryptic sum "444+4x4x4+(4+4)/4+44/4" which equals 521, or the 21st of the 5th month, but the number four is clearly an important part of the phone's launch.What does the four say?One of the most likely meanings of the four is that the Honor 20 will have four rear cameras, similar to the Huawei P30 Pro, as Honor is a sub-brand of Huawei and they often share camera tech.We've previously heard rumors that the Honor 20 will have three rear cameras, but that leak could be incorrect.The hashtag ' capturewonder' does imply an emphasis on photography too, so we shouldn't be surprised if the Honor 20 does release with four rear cameras.
