Slim and discreet, it’s a £300 wearable tracker that in tandem with its companion app monitors your heart rate, body temperature, and breathing while you sleep to predict when you’re ovulating.When it comes to femtech, the blanket-term used to describe any women-specific tech regardless of whether its an app or a breast pump, that’s a big deal because the options out there are limited at best.Ava’s study, titled “Wearable Sensors Reveal Menses-Driven Changes in Physiology and Enable Prediction of the Fertile Window,” is encouraging.The study had 237 women wear an Ava tracker for a year or until they became pregnant to measure five different parameters: resting pulse rate, respiratory rate, heart rate variability, skin perfusion, and basal body temperature.In it, Ava concluded that wearables were not only able to accurately and simultaneously track multiple physiological parameters during a menstrual cycle, Ava also developed an algorithm that could predict to 90 per cent accuracy a woman’s six-day fertile period.A separate clinical study from 2018 for smartphone apps surveyed 73 fertility apps, and fewer than a third could predict a six-day window or smaller, and with accuracy falling between 11 and 81 percent.

Ford Motor is laying off 7,000 salaried employees as part of CEO Jim Hackett’s restructuring plan to reduce bureaucracy, cut costs and turn the automaker into a more agile company prepared for a future that extends beyond its traditional business of producing and selling cars and trucks.The cuts represent about 10% of the automaker’s salaried employees.Some buyouts and layoffs have already occurred, according to an email sent to employees by Hackett.TechCrunch has since reviewed the email.Some 1,500 employees opted for voluntary buyouts, which occurred in November 2018, according to a spokesperson.Ford expects to complete the restructuring efforts by August globally.

Bytedance has on Monday launched a new social app that combines instant message and forum functionalities on iOS and Android, another experiment in the social app landscape following the lackluster January debut of Snapchat clone Duoshan.Feiliao, or Flipchat in English, is described in Apple’s App Store as an “interest-based social app.” Users can join open chat groups centered around different topics, ranging from eccentric boyfriends to popular TV series.There are two kinds of chat groups in the app, open groups and normal groups.Open groups closely resemble forums on Baidu Tieba, where all posts are visible to all users and where there is no limit to the number of members.As of writing, the biggest chat group on the app contains around 3,500 people and appears to be a group for testing features, not posting actual content.Normal groups are similar to private chat groups and have a limit of 100 users per group.

While some of the details are still being worked out, it's generally agreed that the Moon formed when a Mars-sized body collided with the early Earth.Some of the debris put into orbit by the collision would then go on to condense into the Moon.But now, there are signals that the Chang’E-4 mission to the Moon's far side has finally spotted some of the Moon's mantle, which contains signs of its magma ocean.None of the rocks brought back, however, seem to have originated in the mantle, largely because plate tectonics doesn't exist on the Moon, so that process can't bring mantle material to the surface.This idea got a boost when the GRAIL mission mapped the lunar crust and found it was thinner than previously thought.In other words, the same dense minerals might end up condensing deep underneath the crater rather than some place where we could examine them.

Just one look at the Tesoro Neo X Speed from Cannondale and you know it’s not your typical pedal-assisted electric bike.Its aggressively styled alloy frame and thick wheels are too brutish for a commuter bike, yet the fenders, rear carrier, integrated lighting, and kickstand look out of place when bombing down a mountain trail.According to Cannondale, the Tesoro Neo X Speed is a hybrid designed for “backroad bikepacking” and “hooning around the city having a laugh.”In other words, this is an e-bike for nature-loving hooligans.Before delving too deeply into the psyche of this troublemaker, let’s talk specs.The battery can be removed with a key for easy charging indoors, or it can be charged while still fitted to the bike.

Google’s Chromebooks are already capable of running Android apps and Linux programs, but the Mountain View company was also working on Project Campfire.The initiative aimed to bring Windows to Chromebooks, allowing users to dual-boot between Microsoft’s operating system and Chrome OS.Now, a new code commit spotted by ChromeUnboxed has revealed that the so-called Alt OS functionality is likely dead.The commit reveals that several related features are being deprecated, including the Alt OS picker screen (which supposedly lets you choose between Windows and Chrome OS).This isn’t official confirmation of Windows being killed off on Chromebooks, but it certainly suggests that Project Campfire is no more.It’s not like Chromebooks have a shortage of apps either, owing to Android and Linux apps.

McLaren is one of the elite players in the exclusive high-end supercar game.However, in a departure from what McLaren is most famous for, on May 15 the British automaker unveiled the McLaren GT, its first-ever grand tourer (GT) model.Well, grand tourers are high-end street cars intended to go quickly and comfortably over vast distances and extended periods of time.In the McLaren lineup, the GT belongs in its own category away from the other existing McLaren series: Sports (the 600 and 570), Super (720) and Ultimate (Senna and Speedtail).The closest McLaren ever came to a GT before was the aforementioned Speedtail, a three-seater the brand billed as a “hyper grand tourer” capable of 1,035 horsepower and 250 miles per hour.In comparison, the McLaren GT’s 4-liter, twin-turbocharged V8 and seven-speed transmission are responsible for 465 pound-foot of torque, a top speed of 203 mph, and the capability of hitting 124 mph in 9 seconds flat.

En mycket allvarlig säkerhetsbrist har upptäckts i flera äldre versioner av Windows som ger hackare fjärråtkomst till datorn utan att användaren behöver göra något särskilt.Buggen innebär att det går att skapa en mask, ett självspridande virus som kan söka efter nya mål att infektera – som Wannacry-attacken 2017.Med tanke på allvaret i situationer har Microsoft valt att släppa buggfixar för alla drabbade operativsystem: Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 och Windows Server 2008 R2.Buggen ligger i Remote Desktop Services-paketet som är förinstallerat på alla systemen, men har skrivits om från grunden i de modernare systemen Windows 8 och Windows 10 som därmed inte drabbas alls.

Citroëns koncept 19_19 handlar inte om körglädje eller dynamisk prestanda.Det hela började med lilla pendlaralternativet Ami One som visades upp i februari och nu kommer uppföljaren, kallad 19_19.Och här har tillverkarens designteam tagit ut svängarna ordentligt då 19_19 verkligen är en science fiction-skapelse.Så i grunden handlar det om en eldriven autonom bil som visar upp delar ur Citroëns teknikhistoria – och den är intressant.Vi kan börja med hjulen.Och till och med annars så förnuftiga Volvo har en hel radda 22-tummare i sitt standardutbud.

It looks like ads on mobile are about to feature a little more prominently.Google announced a series of new ad types for its mobile products — some of which may be a little more intrusive than others.Ad types range in function and size and will range in location that they’ll be displayed too.For example, you’ll start to see ads in the Google Discover feed, which is where many get their news stories and other content that they may be interested in on their Android phone.You will also start seeing so-called “gallery” ads, with which advertisers can show multiple images and allow users to swipe through those images, and there will soon be ads in the actual Google app and on the Google homepage on mobile.It’s not all that surprising to see Google try to make ads on mobile a little more prominent — after all, advertising is Google’s core business.

Rockstar today revealed Red Dead Online is finally exiting the beta stage, and it’s bringing a wagonload of new stuff with it.From new playing modes to punishing murders to full-on role-playing, what was originally a fairly blasé add-on to Red Dead Redemption 2 looks like it might finally be a game worth playing by itself.GTA adding a mischievous MMO mode was one thing, but how would that translate to the more somber, lonesome world of the Old West?Then Red Dead Online actually came out and was much closer to “spaghetti Western” than GTA Online‘s coked-up mix of The Godfather and Fast & Furious.The pace is slower, but the mystery story and the John Ford-ish visuals made for a much more compelling story than I was expecting.Still, it’s been ages since I trotted out with my beloved horse Vanessa on the dirt trails of West Elizabeth, when I was a low-level scrub getting picked off running my errands.

Amazon want to be plenty of things, the most predictable of which is its ambitions to control America’s shipping backbone.The company’s efforts to bring users whatever they desire in 24 hours requires movements by land, air and sea.Today, the company broke ground on expanding its airborne ambitions, breaking ground on a three million square-foot Prime Air airport outside Cincinnati (in Kentucky).In case the optics of three million square feet is lost on you, it’s essentially a parking garage for a 100 cargo jets.Amazon doesn’t even have that many jets yet, but the hub is a housing for the company’s grand logistics ambitions.Per Bezos’ tweet, Amazon is investing $1.5 billion in this effort.

OnePlus has made my ears happy with the sequel to its already decent Bullets Wireless in-ear Bluetooth headphones, and removed that nagging question that often infiltrates my mind: Is there enough time to charge my Bluetooth headphones before I run for the train?Imaginatively named Bullets Wireless 2.0, the company has fixed one of the main things I really didn’t like about the original, improved the sound quality, and added lighting fast recharging too.Yes, they cost a little more, but the price increase is justified with this level of convenience.The OnePlus Bullets Wireless 2.0 look expensive and feel solidly made.The left pod contains the USB Type-C connector to charge the Bullets Wireless 2.0, and has a single button that performs a unique function: Double tap it and the Bluetooth connection will switch from the current device to the last paired device.I’ve been using them with the OnePlus 7 Pro, and with the Huawei P30 Pro, and the feature works well.

It’s also frighteningly common: 3.5% of the population aged 40 years or older (about 60.5 million in 2010) has been diagnosed with the disease, and the number is expected to steeply rise in the next year.Early detection and treatment is essential — glaucoma progresses irreversibly and almost imperceptibly.Toward that end, scientists at IBM Research and New York University describe in a paper a noninvasive technique that uses AI to detect patterns characteristic of glaucoma in retina imaging data.It’s scheduled to be presented at the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology later this month in Vancouver.“From a biological point of view, we know there are associations between visual function and retinal structure,” wrote senior research scientist and manager at IBM Research Australia Rahil Garnavi in a blog post.“[We show that we can] estimate visual function directly from structures in the eye.”

The MyQ Smart Garage Hub is also on sale and will work with Key by Amazon for Prime customers in select areas.The Ness NXG-100b is a daily deal that expires at midnight Pacific time on April 26.If you want to add a smart remote for your garage door opener to an existing smart home configuration or if this is the only smart product that interests you, these two deals can each help you save $30.The Nexx Garage list includes many openers other products may not list — my opener usually isn’t compatible with smart controls, but it’s on the list for the Nexx device.Once it’s installed, you can connect remotely to the Nexx controller via a smartphone app to be sure the door is closed.Nexx Garage is working on a hands-free and voice-free feature which will allow the controller to detect your car getting near your home so it will open automatically — this feature is still in beta, which means it’s not ready yet and it’s not a great idea to buy any product only on the basis of a beta.
