Asus has quietly launched the Zenbook Flip UX360 here in the United States, a super-thin, ultra-light 2-in-1 that sports a full 360-degree hinge, allowing customers to flip the screen back to create a tablet-like form factor.The online Asus shop actually shows two models, one being the ZenBook Flip UX360CA-UBM1T that s available now for $700, and the ZenBook Flip UX360CA-DBM2T, coming soon for a meatier $800.Instead, this system relies on a chromium-copper alloy heat-pipe measuring just 0.5mm in diameter, meaning the 2-in-1 is super quiet, even at full power.Finally, the actual ZenBook Flip UX360CA product page specifications show that models will also be offered with Intel Core M 6Y54 and M 6Y75 processors.Memory spans from 4GB to 8GB, and there will also be models sporting screens with a super-sharp 3,200 x 1,800 resolution.Storage options will range from 128GB to 512GB on M.2 SSDs.

Most often for marketing purposes, many car companies today like to compare their road cars to racing cars.Somehow, they argue, their exploits on the track are embedded into their production cars.But really, they're lying — road cars have little to do with their racing cousins.And for good reason: race cars are uncomfortable, angry, and while they may do well toward their intended goal, they are quite terrible at just about everything else.But in 1985 BMW really would sell you a race car.It was called the M3...and it was awesome.Why would BMW choose to do such a thing?It all comes down to one word: homologation.Roughly, those five syllables mean "approval by an official authority."In motorsport, it has to do with the rules of many racing series, which often require that competitors' cars have a certain amount in common with actual production cars.The rules also often require that the company sell a specified amount of those cars to the general public.But because high performance versions of cars are expensive to produce, companies often build no more than they have to.And in the 1980's — an era of intense competition in international motorsport — BMW really had to find something better than the base 3-series.Because it really wanted to win.

Microsoft buys professional network LinkedIn for the corresponding 215 billion. A high price, according to analysts. The price of $ 26.3 billion above the expected, when compared with, for example Facebook. The prize, which is estimated at $ 196 per share, corresponding according to him, around $ 247 per unique monthly users on LinkedIn, which has about 400 million registered users, of which about 106 million are active. In relation to Facebook valued at $ 200 per active user takes LinkedIn therefore higher paid, said Christopher Lindstrom said. Both companies' boards have approved the deal, which is expected to be complete by the end of the year.

This colour—Pantone 448C—is considered to be the ugliest colour in the world, according to an Australian survey, and it s easy to see why.It looks like a combination of dirt and mucus.Well, countries like Australia and the UK are covering cigarette packages with it in the hopes that it ll help curb smoking.According to a report from the Smithsonian, an Australian user experience agency, GfK, surveyed over 1,000 smokers between the ages of 16 and 64 in 2012 and found that this color—also referred to as opaque couché —reminded most participants of filth.A 2008 Australian study published in Tobacco Control found packs that displayed plainer branding, brown colours, and smaller lettering were less attractive to consumers than a package with full branding elements.On May 31st, in honour of World No Tobacco Day, the World Health Organization WHO encouraged countries to consider adopting plain packaging, citing Australia s move as contributing to the steady decline of smoking in the country.

Let's look at some numbers: the highest quality MP3 track has a bitrate of 320kbps, CDs are transferred at 1,411kbps and a 24-bit/192kHz file is transferred at a rate of 9,216kbps - the latter being the level now considered HRA.The increased bit depth of HRA improves the dynamic range, basically giving you a greater breadth of things to actually hear from the recording.Its founder Mark Waldrop was a firm believer in the superiority of 24-bit/96kHz recordings and with DVD-Audio in decline he started selling recordings which he described as High Definition Audio.So you could pair a tablet with a DAC or carry a hi-res portable player such as Sony's NWZ-A10 £170, NWZ-A17 in the US for US$299 , NWZX100S in Australia AU$799 , which has the convenience of being pocketable and uses the familiar Android user interface.These include the HTC 10 and Sony Xperia Z5, while the new LG G5 has an Hi-Fi Plus clip-on module has taken the bull by the horns with its forthcoming Hi-Fi Plus £149, around US$200, AU$280 , developed by BWhen it comes to the iPhone things get a bit more complicated because although you can store and play hi-res tracks up to 24-bit/96kHz on an iPhone, the in-built iTunes software on the device won't play them.We've also got a guide outlining another couple of different iPhone DAC options which are available.

Image: ShutterstockUsing the CRISPR gene-editing tool, scientists from Harvard University have developed a technique that permanently records data into living cells.The cheap and easy-to-use molecular editing system that burst onto the biotech scene only a few years ago is being used for a host of applications, including genetic engineering, RNA editing, disease modeling, and fighting retroviruses like HIV.And now, as described in a new Science paper, it can also be used to turn lowly microorganisms into veritable hard drives.During the experiment, loose segments of DNA were injected into a strain of E. coli bacteria equipped with CRISPR/cas9.For instance, it could eventually help us answer questions like what happens to the gene regulation inside a cell as it goes from a healthy to disease state.Or it could also be used to record information on the cell s outside environment, for example the presence of specific chemicals, toxins, or pathogens.

Designed for ultimate convenience, the app is built with GPS technology for tracking deliveries and offers a zero minimum spend along with a wait time of only 30 minutes.The success of similar apps in the U.S. was hugely validating for us, says Marco Saio, co-founder of Bevy.We spend significant resources on drivers who are put through months of training before being allocated to one single store to purchase goods, says Saio.By putting store inventories online we simultaneously avoid licensing issues and distribution risk.One app focuses on the customer and pulls the stock information from the nearest available stores whilst the other uses an algorithm to send incoming orders to the closest butler.Thus, money raised through Series A will go toward Android development in addition to an e-commerce web app.

Tutkittueen melkein kahtasataa itse omaisuutensa kasannutta miljonääriä, johtovalmentaja Jude Miller Burke havaitsi, että näitä miljonäärejä yhdisti erityisesti juuri yksi piirre: tunnollisuus.Tunnollisuutta löytyy miljonääreiltä ja multimiljonääreiltä huomattavasti enemmän kuin vähemmän menestyneiltä ihmisiltä , Burke toteaa tutkimuksessa.Burken mukaan tunnolliset ihmiset ovat yleensä erittäin organisoituja, heillä on hyvä itsekuri ja he ovat luotettavia.Burke ei myöskään ole ainot henkilö, joka on huomannut saman luonteenpiirteen yhdistävän varakkaita ja menestyneitä ihmisiä.On huoma määrä tutkimuksia, jotka yhdistävät tunnollisuuden menestykseen.Toisen tutkimuksen mukaan myös puolison tunnollisuudella voi olla positiivisia vaikutuksia tienesteihin, sillä tunnollinen puoliso voi nostaa myös oman puolisonsa palkkaa jopa 4 000 dollarilla vuodessa.

Mark Zuckerberg has fallen foul of hackers who claim to have gained access to some of his social media accounts.The Facebook founder's Twitter and Pinterest accounts appeared to have been hit.A group calling itself OurMine has claimed responsibility, saying it had also accessed Zuckerberg's Instagram page, although Facebook, which owns the photo-sharing site, has denied this.Ouch.Business Insider says the Facebook boss made a "basic security mistake" by using the same password for multiple accounts, while the Guardian adds: "It is perhaps relaxing to know that, despite running one of the biggest websites in the world, Zuckerberg appears to have the same security weaknesses as the rest of us."The paper warns there could be more high-profile hacks to come, given the huge scale of the Linkedin security breach and a more recent hack of around 360 million MySpace accounts.

The plans are controversial and last year the main US medical research agency, the National Institutes of Health, banned funding for such experiments.Critics say the research could lead to the development of organ farms.If there is still a shortage after that we can consider using pigs, but on the basis that we eat less meat so that there is no overall increase in the number of pigs being used for human purposes.Other concerns relate to the possibility that the implanted human cells might migrate to the developing pig s brain and make it more human.To create the chimeras - named after the creatures from Greek mythology made up of more than one animal - scientists use CRISPR gene editing to remove DNA from a newly-fertilised pig embryo that would enable the resulting foetus to grow a pancreas.The research will be outlined in Panorama - Medicine s Big Breakthrough: Editing Your Genes on Monday at 8.30pm on BBC One.
