The Nintendo 3DS looks to be entering the twilight of its life now as the iconic Japanese game maker has shifted focus to its wildly popular Switch console.That might be sad news for owners of the 3DS and its cheaper two-dimensional sibling, the 2DS, but for those who haven’t ever owned one of these fantastic handhelds, it also offers opportunities for deals on one of them, like this high-value bundle offer from Target which gives you a Nintendo 2DS handheld system a copy of New Super Mario Bros. 2, and a second game of your choice — all for $80.Following the release of the original 3DS, Nintendo responded to criticism and skepticism regarding the handheld’s stereoscopic 3D feature by re-vamping the technology with the New 3DS and releasing an alternative, the Nintendo 2DS, which lacked stereoscopic 3D altogether.This particular Nintendo 2DS has a hinge-less design and is actually the only one currently available in North America featuring the smaller screens that are similar in size to the original DS and 3DS handhelds, making it a fine alternative to the XL models for gamers who find those to be too bulky.Along with a pre-installed copy of New Super Mario Bros. 2, this Nintendo 2DS bundle comes with a second free game of your choice – more than a few of which hold top spots on our list of the 25 best games for the 3DS.These are all top-rated titles featuring famous first-party Nintendo franchises like Mario, The Legend of Zelda, Star Fox, Donkey Kong, and Luigi’s Mansion, as well as a couple unique standalone titles like Super Mario Maker and Ultimate NES Remix.

WASHINGTON, D.C., June 11, 2019 -- A new energy-efficient data routing algorithm developed by an international team could keep unmanned aerial vehicle swarms flying -- and helping -- longer, report an international team of researchers this month in the journal Chaos, from AIP Publishing.UAV swarms are cooperative, intercommunicating groups of UAVs used for a wide and growing variety of civilian and military applications.In disaster response, particularly when local communications infrastructure is destroyed, UAV swarms linked to one or more local base stations act as eyes in the sky, providing first responders with crucial damage and survivor information."The battery capacity of UAVs is a critical shortcoming that limits their usage in extended search and rescue missions," said co-author Wuhui Chen, a researcher at China's Sun Yat-Sen University.Much of a UAV's energy use can be related to high bandwidth and long transmission times -- think of the drain on the battery of your phone in such cases.To address this, Chen and colleagues have developed a UAV swarm data routing algorithm that uses the strength of the group to maximize real-time transmission rates and minimize individual UAV battery challenges.

Telecoms.com periodically invites third parties to share their views on the industry’s most pressing issues.In this article Antony Tomlinson, CEO of network builder Ontix, which has a concession agreement with the council in Westminster, shares his views on the concession model, addresses BT’s suggestion that they’re the wrong way to go, and explores what we should do to accelerate the roll-out of next-generation networks.Local councils who want their street furniture to host telecoms equipment have generally chosen to agree concession contracts with wholesale infrastructure providers (or “WIPs”).The WIP takes on the work and the business risk, paying a license fee to the council and charging a wholesale fee to the operators.BT has started an interesting discussion at a pertinent time, now we’re starting to see small cells being deployed in volume.Unfortunately, BT’s proposal would prevent the collaboration that we now need more than ever.

And also a whole heap of existing games like The Witcher 3 and Alien Isolation coming to the Nintendo Switch.It's been a long time coming, but finally it has happened: Banjo-Kazooie is coming to Super Smash Bros.Ultimate on the Nintendo Switch, as revealed by Nintendo's E3 Nintendo DirectIt's long been one of those character additions that made complete sense, but there's always been one obstacle: since Microsoft owned Rare, the company who made the games originally, Nintendo didn't have the rights to reproduce the character on a game solely designed for Nintendo consoles.In addition to the usual gameplay we've come to expect, Luigi's Mansion 3 has found new ways for Luigi to interact with the world: a cool new plunger thing that lets you rip stuff from the game's environment and -- perhaps most importantly -- GOOIGI!It's being developed by Grasshopper and while we didn't get a glimpse of gameplay, it looked pretty good!

Opera has released a new version of its web browser specially designed for gamers.Opera GX includes a raft of features tailored to game fans, including Twitch integration, optimization tools and Razer Chroma-style customizable colors.Opera teased the new browser in May with a rather cryptic announcement that it was working on "a new and special version of our browser made with those of you who play games in mind".The wait is now over, and an early access version of Opera GX is available to download and try for yourself.The browser's default homepage is something called GX Corner, which gathers deals on games from different retailers and includes a news feed with top gaming-related headlines from various sources (including TechRadar).Opera GX also includes tools for limiting the system resources used by your browser, so you can keep it running in the background while you stream without it having a detrimental effect on your frame rate.

A group of researchers from Japan has discovered a novel enzyme from a soil fungus.The researchers state, "Our study sheds light on the fact that new enzymes are still being discovered.It possibly lays the foundation for further research to identify new enzymes that yield carbohydrates that were once thought to be extremely difficult to prepare."A novel family, GH144, was identified by the same research group in the past from a soil bacterium Chitinophaga pinensis and called CpSGL.The enzyme endo-β-1,2-glucanase (SGL), a member of the GH family, is involved in the metabolism of β-1,2-glucan, which is a polysaccharide (sugar chain) composed of β-1,2-linked glucose units.This group of Japanese scientists from different universities and a research institute, working on a collaborative project led by Masahiro Nakajima, has discovered a novel SGL enzyme from a soil fungus, Talaromyces funiculosus.

The AMD Ryzen 9 3950X was only just announced at E3 2019, but it's already breaking records – it's been pushed to 5GHz across all 16 cores.In order to hit this massive clock speed, overclockers had to use exotic cooling – this time LN2, or liquid nitrogen.The AMD Ryzen 9 3950X already features a blazing fast 4.7GHz boost clock out of the box, but if it's anything like Ryzen 2nd Generation, that will only apply to a few cores at a time.Check out our guide to the world of PC componentsThanks to the LN2, however, these overclockers were able to push the beastly processor even further, bringing it to 5.0GHz across all cores, with a voltage of 1.608V, according to a report from Wccftech.Thanks to this overclock, the AMD Ryzen 9 3950X was able to break some performance world records, according to Benchlife.

Osaka, Japan - Polypropylene (PP) is everywhere, being one of the most widely used plastics in human life.Researchers at Osaka University have now developed a convenient light-driven process for oxidizing PP without harmful waste.The surface of PP bristles with methyl groups (-CH3), which constitute the side chains of the polymer.The strong C-H bonds in methyl groups make PP an unreactive material, which for many purposes is exactly what is needed.The highly reactive radical is easily made by mixing sodium chlorite and hydrochloric acid.It then just needs to be photochemically activated--for this, the Osaka team chose an LED lamp as the light source.

The great news is that science tells us having happy employees is really good for business.The UK’s Warwick University confirmed that “Under scientifically controlled conditions, making workers happier really pays off” and produces a 12 percent rise in productivity.Because when a company treats employees well, they will treat the company well — meaning they’ll go the extra mile during tougher periods when things aren’t so happy.A stellar customer experience can make a lasting difference, and whilst the use of technology continues to grow, and according to Walker, authors of Customers 2020 – a Progress Report, “It is essential that the cold, data-driven world of digital is combined with a more human touch to ensure the delivery and sustainability of a more effective customer experience.”One way of creating meaningful customer experiences is through live events such as exhibitions.Exhibitions bring companies and clients together and companies who lead the way in this field are networking and connecting with a wider audience, boosting their image and developing their customer relationships.

Security researchers have identified yet another cryptocurrency mining malware.This time it’s installing itself on enterprise application servers, and using a clever trick to remain hidden.If that wasn’t enough, the malware has already claimed its first major victim: Oracle servers.The malware takes advantage of a common vulnerability and exploit that was first identified in April this year by researchers from cybersecurity firm Trend Micro.Trend Micro researchers verified that the exploit has been used to crypto-jack insecure Oracle servers.In order to remain hidden, the malicious code is obscured in certificate files.

Samsung is widely rumored to be launching both a Samsung Galaxy Note 10 and a Galaxy Note 10 Pro this August, but while the latter will probably be a superior handset in a lot of ways, a leak suggests it might be worse for battery life.That’s because – based on information received by 91mobiles – both models will apparently have a 4,170mAh battery.That’s not a bad size, but given that the Note 10 Pro is expected to have a bigger screen, and will therefore use power quickly, the charge presumably won’t go as far on that handset.Indeed, the source adds that while the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 apparently has a 6.4-inch display, the Galaxy Note 10 Pro will supposedly have a 6.8-inch one.We would however take all of these claims with a pinch of salt, especially since previous rumors pointed to 6.3 and 6.75-inch screens, along with a 4,500mAh battery for the Galaxy Note 10 Pro.Other information in this latest leak includes that the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 will come with 128GB of base storage, while the Galaxy Note 10 Pro will apparently start at 256GB, and rise to 1TB.

What happened: Alibaba-backed Ele.me is opening up its short-distance logistics capabilities to more customers and industries.The company rebranded its Fengniao Delivery logistics arm to Fengniao Logistics and added a number of new service offerings, including inter-city express deliveries for groceries, flowers, and medication.More than 20,000 digital “instant delivery” warehousing and delivery centers will be established across the country in three years, according to Wang Lei, president of the life services platform.It will also establish an intelligent delivery system using artificial intelligence and big data technologies, he added.Why it’s important: Ele.me’s delivery network expansion followed shortly after its major rival Meituan extended its logistics service beyond its core food delivery sector in May.Mounting salary costs for delivery fleets imposed a huge financial burden for the restaurant delivery giants which are entangled in an escalating rivalry.
