Today, one of the Mi fans asked Xiaomi co-founder and Xiaomi President Lin Bin on Weibo whether there is the Xiaomi Mi MIX 4 in August.The answer was laconic – No.Vice versa, we have heard too much about the upcoming model, and most likely, it will hit the market in September.The second-generation Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 was launched on September 11, 2017.The Xiaomi Mi MIX 3 was released on October 25, 2018.And the new-gen Xiaomi Mi MIX 4 is expected to come in September and October as well.
We're not entirely sure what Huawei is working on deep inside its software labs – Ark OS, possibly, or Harmony OS – but the company says the operating system it's building is being designed for industrial use rather than as a direct Android replacement.That's as per the state-backed Xinhua news agency, which reports a Huawei executive insisting that Android will continue to run on Android phones for the foreseeable future.Huawei senior Vice President Catherine Chen told the media that the operating system – which also goes by the name Hongmeng – is "not for smartphones" and has far more lines of code than would be needed for consumer mobile devices.The comments need to be taken in a wider context though: Huawei representatives have previously said that the Chinese tech giant is indeed working on a replacement for Android.That might be true as well, of course, even if what we know as Hongmeng or Ark or Harmony isn't it.If you're a little confused about where Huawei is heading with this, don't worry, because you're not alone.
The U.S. officials Steven Mnuchin from Treasury Secretary and Larry Kudlow, White House economic adviser, will meet in White House on Monday to discuss Huawei ban.The meeting will include several semiconductor and software executives.According to a White House official, the meeting is confirmed, however, he states that the executives will discuss economic matters.According to the official, the Huawei subject will surely be part of the meeting, but it’s just a small part of the meeting.Worth noting that Google and Micron will also send representants to the White House.Huawei’s nightmare started back in May when the U.S. Department of Commerce decided to classify the company as a threat to national security.

In terms of buzzworthy hotness, however, the moon is currently enjoying press like it hasn’t seen since the early 1970s.Fifty years after Apollo 11 first put astronauts on the moon, we’re going back, as the next 10 years are poised to be the most significant in lunar history in, well, decades.What have we got to look forward to?The biggest moon-related news on everyone’s mind right now is the announcement, made by U.S. Vice President Mike Pence earlier this year, that President Donald Trump has directed NASA to commit to sending American astronauts to the moon by 2024.This would be the first time that people have walked on the moon since Eugene “Gene” Cernan and Harrison “Jack” Schmitt, the crew of Apollo 17, in December 1972.While questions have been raised about how feasible the deadline is, the Artemis mission has nonetheless generated plenty of excitement.
The Superconductivity Research Center of the Korea Electrotechnology Research Institute (KERI, President Gyu-ha Choe) under the Ministry of Science and ICT has developed a superconducting insulation technology that can significantly reduce the size and weight of medical magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) equipment.While many hospitals, both domestic and international, face many difficulties in facility management due to the large size and heavy weight of MRI equipment, the development of this technology, led by the team of Dr. Seog-Whan Kim and Dr. Young-Sik Jo of the Superconductivity Research Center, is expected to receive much attention.MRI transmits a high frequency magnetic field of thousands of hertz to the human body, and displays the image signals generated from atomic nuclei in the body in a 2D or 3D cross-sectional image.Resolution is the most important thing for an accurate MRI diagnosis, and a stronger magnetic field results in better quality.Most existing MRIs use a superconducting electromagnet to create a powerful magnetic field.Superconductivity is the phenomenon where metal or a compound is cooled below a certain temperature has almost no resistance to current flow.

Developed eco-friendly, low-cost, and high-efficiency wastewater processing catalyst made from agricultural byproduct, and High efficiency and removal rate achieved through application of ultrasound stimulation, leading to high expectation for the development of an environmental hormone removal systemThe research team of Dr. Jae-woo Choi and Dr. Kyung-won Jung of the Korea Institute of Science and Technology's (KIST, president: Byung-gwon Lee) Water Cycle Research Center announced that it has developed a wastewater treatment process that uses a common agricultural byproduct to effectively remove pollutants and environmental hormones, which are known to be endocrine disruptors.The sewage and wastewater that are inevitably produced at any industrial worksite often contain large quantities of pollutants and environmental hormones (endocrine disruptors).Because environmental hormones do not break down easily, they can have a significant negative effect on not only the environment but also the human body.To prevent this, a means of removing environmental hormones is required.Because high efficiency is difficult to achieve given the conditions, the biggest disadvantage of the existing process is the high cost involved.

On Friday, a day before the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon landing, President Trump invited the crew of that mission to the Oval Office.Seated, Trump was flanked by Lunar Module Pilot Buzz Aldrin, Command Module Pilot Michael Collins, and the children of Commander Neil Armstrong.During the 20-minute ceremony, Trump praised the efforts of the Apollo 11 crew and NASA in achieving the first Moon landing half a century ago.The administration's Artemis Program, which calls for humans to return to the Moon by 2024, has been heavily promoted by the space agency as of late.Off to one side, Bridenstine—a strong lunar advocate whom Trump appointed to the post—gamely replied that it made the most sense to go to the Moon first."Well, we need to use the Moon as a proving ground," Bridenstine said.

In 2018, former Trump strategist Steve Bannon used location data from smartphones to target church-goers with get-out-the vote advertisements, according to a new report from ThinkProgress Friday.“We’re sending a message from CatholicVote, not to go vote for a specific guy,” Bannon said.“But for all Catholics to go out and do their duty and they’re going to put out a thing to support President Trump.”The concession came from a now-deleted scene from The Brink, a documentary by Alison Klayman focusing on Bannon’s efforts to mobilize the far-right throughout the 2018 midterm elections.In an interview with Klayman, Bannon says that he worked with the conservative group CatholicVote to use location data obtained from carriers to target ads to people who had recently been to Roman Catholic churches in Dubuque, Iowa.“If your phone’s ever been in a Catholic church, it’s amazing, they got this data,” Bannon reportedly said.

Frank Pearce, one of Blizzard Entertainment's three original founding staffers, announced his intention to leave the game-making company on Friday, effective immediately.Pearce's announcement came via a Friday blog post at Blizzard's official site, which was appended with a note from current Blizzard president J. Allen Brack.The combined blog post indicates that last year, Pearce "stepped into an advisory role to help with the transition," which seems to indicate that his departure has been some time coming.It's unclear whether this advisory-transition period began anywhere near the time another Blizzard co-founder, Mike Morhaime, left the company in October 2018.The departure of Pearce as chief development officer leaves only one of Blizzard Entertainment's original co-founders, Allen Adham, at the helm.Adham returned to Blizzard in 2016 after a ten-year game-development hiatus to become the company's senior vice president.
The Parliamentary Intelligence and Security Committee has unveiled a statement to rubbish delays put on the Supply Chain Review, demanding a decision ASAP.In the same week as the Chair of the Science and Technology Committee suggested there are no technical reasons to ban Huawei, the Intelligence and Security Committee has demanded a sharp decision or risk losing a strong position in the digital economy.However, the extent of the delay is now causing serious damage to our international relationships: a decision must be made as a matter of urgency.”While the UK fell drastically behind the norm when it came to adopting 4G, progress has been much more promising for 5G.While calling oneself a global leader usually means little coming from the mouths of groomed politicians, in this case the UK is a genuine leader in the 5G race.There are only a handful of nations who launched ahead of the UK and the opportunity to scale nationwide rapidly is certainly is present.

Huawei's Hongmeng OS, which was initially thought to be an alternative to Google's Android, is not designed to be a replacement smartphone operating system, a company executive recently said, according to Xinhua.Hongmeng OS is being developed for industrial use, Chen reportedly said at a media roundtable in Brussels, adding that the company intends to continue using Android.The comments come after President Trump said American firms could resume business with Huawei following a blacklisting that was announced in May.Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.Huawei has been working on an operating system called Hongmeng OS that was initially thought to be an alternative to Google's Android.Catherine Chen, Huawei's board member and senior vice president, said Hongmeng OS is designed for industrial use rather than consumer smartphones, Chinese news agency Xinhua reported citing a media roundtable in Brussels.

The eighth-generation 2020 Chevrolet Corvette is finally here.Rocking a brand-new shape and posting some impressive acceleration figures, even the base model of the C8 Corvette looks to be an absolute riot.But this is only the start of Corvette Fever, and a new report suggests future variants of C8 might get some new-age tech.Chevrolet has already said the C8 Corvette is designed with potential electrification in mind, but at the launch of the 2020 Corvette, Autocar asked a member of the Chevy team if it would be obscene to assume that an electrified Corvette might sport a mild-hybrid powertrain or use a front-axle electric motor to add all-wheel drive.The response was pretty telling: "You would not look stupid if you said that," Autocar reports the Corvette team member saying.Autocar decided to take things one step further and ask Mark Reuss, president of GM, if a battery-electric Corvette was in the cards.
This is an excerpt from a story delivered exclusively to Business Insider Intelligence Connectivity & Tech subscribers.Industrial giant Honeywell is leaning on its connected industrial software business to support growing organic sales — up 5% year-over-year (YoY) — and an increasing sales backlog — up over 10% YoY — which the company reported in its earnings yesterday.The expanded software efforts could help the company grow more resilient to swings in the industrial market, though they could also require investments that are too slow to bear fruit.CEO Darius Adamczyk said in the earnings release that the company is becoming "a premier software-industrial company, with connected software sales continuing to grow at a double-digit rate organically.The HCE foundation is firmly in place, supported by the launch of Honeywell Forge, a comprehensive industrial IoT (IIoT) software solution."The conglomerate is pursuing these software solutions across industries by identifying common issues and threads that it can use to solve customers' operational issues.
Tomorrow it will be a full 50 years since humans first set foot on the Moon, and nearly 50 years since the annual hand-wringing began over why none have gone back after Apollo 17.The Apollo program had survived multiple US administrations and policy shifts to achieve the goal set on 25 May, 1961 by a dead president.The Saturn V was, and is, a technical marvel; the Lunar Module retains the dubious accolade of being the only crewed spacecraft to land on another celestial body.The March Hare recommended Eugene Krantz's excellent Failure Is Not an Option (it was, of course, very much an option as both crew and controllers knew all too well) and Zebo-the-Fat pointed to Kevin Fong's superb 13 Minutes to The Moon podcast, culminating in the landing itself, free of waffle.The story of the landing has been told and retold so often that there is little left unknown.50 years ago: Apollo 10 takes an unplanned spin above the lunar surface – and sh!t gets sweary

The fight between AMD and Nvidia for graphics card dominance is certainly getting heated, with AMD admitting that it has weaponized price cuts in a bid to get Nvidia to over-price its graphics cards.However, when Nvidia launched its GeForce RTX 20 Super series, which includes the RTX 2070 Super and the RTX 2060 Super, AMD cut the prices of the AMD Radeon RX 5700 and Radeon RX 5700 XT to $349 (around £280, AU$500) and $399 (around £320, AU$570) respectively.This made them considerably cheaper than Nvidia’s new RTX 20 Super lineup.While many people assumed AMD cut the prices in reaction to Nvidia’s launch, according to Scott Herkelman, AMD’s vice president and general manager for the Radeon division, the price cut was pre-planned in a bit to get Nvidia to over-price its new graphics cards.The revelation comes in an interview between Herkelman and Hot Hardware, which you can watch below:According to Herkelman, AMD had a hunch that Nvidia’s large die size on its Turing boards would mean that the company would struggle to cut prices without impacting its margins.
HongMeng OS, Huawei’s operating system, is not designed for smartphones.This is the affirmation of Catherine Chen, Senior Vice President and member of the Chinese company’s Board of Directors.Immediately after the ban imposed by Trump.There was confirmation of a proprietary OS to be an alternative to Android.But reports said that the company would prefer to continue using the Google system.Not long ago, Huawei filed the HongMeng OS trademark in various countries but the representative specified that it is a system intended for industrial use, confirming – among other things – that it was already under development long before any taxes were imposed or restrictions by the United States.
