You ve got to steep the grains, rinse off the sugars, boil the wort, add hops, cool it quickly and pitch the yeast.The BrewArt brewing system via Mashable , from the makers of Coopers brewing ingredients in Australia, is kinda like a Nespresso machine, but for brewing beer.It s capable of making 10 litres of beer through the BrewDroid fermentation system while the companion BrewFlo is a dispenser that ll serve up the brew at the temperature of your choosing.However, it s not cheap either.No news yet on a UK launch.comments powered by Disqus
If you thought the recently launched OnePlus 3 was good value for money, it might be time to reconsider your view of the term 'affordable'.Ringing Bells founder and CEO Mohit Goel told the Indian Express: "We are ready with nearly two lakh 200,000 'Freedom 251' handsets.Hardly top-end specs, but for less than the price of a latte, we're not complaining, and we're sure Indians aren't either.Goel admitted his company is taking a loss on the handsets at the moment, but told the Indian Express he is happy to be 'connecting rural and poor Indians'.VIDEO: What's the no.1 smartphone in the world right now?Let us know what you think in the comments.
At that price – the one the company originally pledged – it is losing the Indian startup Rs 150 $2.2 or £1.65 on each smartphone.Ringing Bells founder and chief executive Mohit Goel told the Indian Express: We will have a loss, but I am happy that the dream of connecting rural and poor Indians as part of the Digital India and Make in India initiatives has been fulfilled with Freedom 251.The 3G Android 5.1 smartphone has a 4in screen, 8-megapixel rear camera, 3.2-megapixel selfie camera, a 1.3GHz processor, 1GB of RAM and 8GB of storage, with a microSD card slot for adding more.The company says that it has nearly 200,000 Freedom 251s ready to ship, with plans to open up orders again in the near future and ship 200,000 handsets a month, although to date no phones have been made available for scrutiny.A government investigation led to a raid of the company s offices over tax and the lack of certification for the device with the country s telecoms regulator.Should Ringing Bells be able to ship a working Android smartphone to customers on the 30 June as planned, it will be quite an achievement, although whether a startup can sustain losing £330,000 a month at its planned shipment schedule remains to be seen.

A cocky newcomer with more than ten years old bought the venerable Norstedts by Astrid Lindgren, the Millennium books and a number of other big names in his stable. Last year it was Massolit Media, which includes B. Wahlström, and last spring the company paid 125 million for the Danish competitor Mofibo. At the same time Storytel users expect a sizeable addition to the Swedish-language output. Collins has a huge catalog that will be digitized in Storytels auspices. Margit Sandemos epics became a success when the books bucket was in audiobook format. And Jonas Gardell, PO Engqvist and a plethora of other authors.
For the past decade, Hollywood s battle against online pirates has been mainly been focused on leaked DVD screeners and illegal streaming sites.Now a pair of security researchers say they ve discovered a vulnerability in the Google Chrome browser that allows people to save illegal copies of movies from streaming sites like Netflix and Amazon Prime.The vulnerability, first reported by Wired, takes advantage of the Widevine EME/CDM technology that Chrome uses to stream encrypted video from content providers.Researchers David Livshits from the Cyber Security Research Center at Ben-Gurion University and Alexandra Mikityuk of Telekom Innovation Laboratories discovered a way to hijack streaming video from the decryption module in the Chrome browser after content has been sent from services like Netflix or Amazon Prime.The researchers created a proof-of-concept which is currently the only evidence of the exploit to show how easily they could illegally download streaming video once CDM technology has decrypted it.Wired points out that major issue facing Google as it deals with this exploit is that Chromium, the open-source code that the Chrome browser is based off, would still allow malicious hackers to take advantage of the vulnerability.

It is time to stop discriminating against our electronic friends. Analysts are fairly unanimous that the robots will take over many human job. The committee also wants the Parliament to institute a policy of coercion, according to the same principle as a motor insurance on cars. They do not consider robotuvecklingen have come far enough to today's state of the art AI units will be classified as people - it's certainly 50 years away. "We believe it would be very bureaucratic and inhibit the development of robotics," said the organization's CEO Patrick Schwarzkopf told Reuters. It remains to be seen if Parliament chooses to open their hearts to the electronic subjects and pass the motion, or if they're going to come out as a collection robothatande teknofober.
His underrated Sunday-night animated series King of the Hill had finally come to an end after 13 seasons; his last feature film, Extract, barely made a dent at the box office; and his follow-up animated series, The Goode Family, only lasted 13 episodes.But what is most vital about the series is the complete lack of reverence for the industry it skewers.At every turn, Richard s company—which includes Erlich, lovably off-putting CFO Jared Dunn Zach Woods , and programmers Dinesh Kumail Nanjiani and Gilfoyle Martin Starr —could simply hit the big time, achieve success, and then turn everyone into loathsome archetypes.Seasons/Episodes You Can Skip:Season 1: Episode 5, Signaling Risk Most of Silicon Valley s detail-oriented approach to life in the Bay Area is so accurate it would make anyone who grew up in the San Jose-San Francisco-Oakland tri-city area homesick.Richard flips out on a girl he likes because she writes code in a way that he finds to be reckless.That bit of inspiration—which mocks every accidental genius brainstorm in the playbook of corporate success—leads to an exceedingly vulgar tangent that Richard uses to entirely rebuild Pied Piper s central goal of data compression.

For those who might not want to know anything more about the plot of the film, consider this your official spoiler warning.According to Movies.com, the antagonist causing trouble for the DC Comics superhero team will be the alien Steppenwolf, who was glimpsed in a deleted scene that was released by the studio just after Batman v Superman premiered in theaters.One of the henchmen for the cosmic conqueror Darkseid, Steppenwolf was created by legendary writer and artist Jack The King of Comics Kirby, and first appeared in the 1972 debut issue of Kirby s New Gods series.Additional reports indicate that the film sets Steppenwolf on a mission to recover three powerful motherboxes — the cube-like object seen in the aforementioned deleted scene — that were left behind the last time Darkseid attempted to invade Earth.Created by Bob Haney and Howard Purcell, Vulko above debuted in a 1967 issue of The Brave and the Bold and went on to become a recurring character in Aquaman s adventures over the years.Dafoe is expected to play a smaller, supporting role in Justice League that will then be expanded in the 2018 solo Aquaman film featuring Jason Momoa as in the title role.
The new service, self-descriptively dubbed Live Video, will launch today, according to TechCrunchsources.It will reportedly comprise two elements: a live, Tumblr-hosted series of broadcasts featuring special events and celebrity guests, and a platform for user-generated content feature competitive with services like Facebook Live and Persicope.Some are star-studded, like a basketball lesson from a Harlem Globetrotter and a Q session with Adam J. Kurtz.But the details of just how that will work are lacking: It s unclear, for instance, whether live-streamed video will be viewable on Tumblr s mobile Android and iOS app or the web, and whether sessions will be available for later viewing.Online video accounts for upwards of 50 percent of traffic, according to Feedly, and advertisers are jumping on board: A recent survey of brand executives by marketing analytics firm Brandlive found that 39 percent believed that live streaming video would be important to their marketing efforts going forward.And with some firms projecting that online video will be responsible for as much as four-fifths of Internet traffic by 2019, there s obvious potential for firms like Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube to capitalize with advertising spots.
In March, Munich-founded eGym raised $45 million in Series C led by HPE Growth Capital .That same month, Lightbend, headquartered in Lausanne, Switzerland, also announced it had closed a $20 million Series C led by Intel Capital.While growth capital in Europe may still have some way to go before reaching the staggering heights of its trans-Atlantic neighbor, recent data I crunched using Funderbeam which itself received $2.4 million in seed tells us it s on the rise.For the first-time, Series C deals in Europe have been out-performing Series A, with $12.3 billion invested in startups from 2014 to 2016.Absorbing $12.3 billion or 23.4% of total VC investments in just over two years, European startups are coming of age and scaling enough to attract the attention and capital of growth funds.While Series A investments follow closely behind at $12.04 billion, Europe is now demonstrating that it is entering the big league.I attribute this skyrocketing of growth capital to five distinct causes:1.They re also looking beyond local markets and increasingly expanding globally.2.Some market categories — such as fintech, music and advertising — have a much better platform and footing in London, Paris, or Stockholm than in Silicon Valley.EU tech IPOs have been outperforming their Silicon Valley counterparts averaging 20% in their first month, according to Bloomberg , and the median pre-money valuation for late-stage rounds is $168 million in Europe, compared to $270 million in the US.This is, of course, a great sign for the growing EU tech scene, showing a strong pipeline of potential unicorns coming out of Europe.
Four GT race cars and 12 drivers will try to hand the Blue Oval a win in the GTE Pro class on the 50th anniversary of Ford s first Le Mans win.Bruce McLaren and Chris Amon drove this black-and-silver GT40, chassis P/1046, to first place at Le Mans 50 years ago.It took Ford two years, but in 1966 GT40s finished first, second, and third.It s now known as the Gurney bubble.After the cars crossed the line, officials declared that since car 2 had started further back 20 meters, to be precise , its drivers were actually the winners because they d covered a longer distance.It also faces battle-hardened competition in the form of Corvette and Porsche teams, plus old nemesis Ferrari.
Wall Street is cautiously optimistic about Microsoft's $26 billion mega-buy of professional social network LinkedIn, and now Bill Gates is adding his support too."I think it s a great transaction.LinkedIn brings in a lot," Gates told Bloomberg's Erik Schatzker in an on-screen interview.The opportunity, Gates says, is to combine Microsoft's productivity expertise with LinkedIn's social networking know-how to become the center of people's professional lives."If we can make that as valuable as say the Facebook feed in the social world, that s huge value creation, and that ll happen over a period of years," Gates says.Gates says that Microsoft is already an "expert in software and managing those audiences," and can now use the LinkedIn news feed to deliver a professional feed on everything that's happening inside and outside their company, tracking the skills they need to stay competitive."I certainly think the value of the two companies combined is greater than the two by themselves but I love the idea that the market wants us to show that," Gates says.Gates was reportedly the voice of dissent that killed a proposed $8 billion Microsoft bid for hot chat startup Slack, on the grounds that Microsoft could build something better in-house with Skype.In that light, for Gates to throw his support behind Microsoft's $26 billion LinkedIn deal, seen by some to be a too-steep premium, there might just be something for shareholders to celebrate here.NOW WATCH: 5 insider tips for getting noticed on LinkedInLoading video...

Cannabis fotograf: AlamyIt-jätten Microsoft har inlett ett samarbete med ett företag verksamt i den legala cannabisbranschen, rapporterar flera amerikanska medier.Microsoft blir därmed det första storbolag som bryter det tabu som funnits bland etablerade företag om att ge sig in i den växande industrin.Tillsammans med det Los Angeles-baserade företaget Kind ska Microsoft erbjuda mjukvara som hjälper stater som legaliserat marijuana för rekreationsbruk att registrera och följa odling och försäljning.– Vi tror på en betydande tillväxt.I takt med att branschen blir mer reglerad kommer det att bli fler transaktioner och vi tror att det kommer att öka behovet av mer sofistikerade lösningar och verktyg, säger Kimberley Nelson, ansvarig för statliga och kommunala IT-produkter på Microsoft, till New York Times.
At E3 2016, Microsoft revealed the new Xbox One S that represents an incremental step forward for the company's console line, at least while waiting for Project Scorpio to take flesh.If the One S is indeed "the future", it might be a future with very few Kinects.Users will have to ask Microsoft for a free USB adapter if ever they want to use the motion sensor with their newer and smaller console.Gamers have a love-hate relationship with the Kinect, and apparently so does Microsoft now.However, the primarily console-exclusive sensor became so popular among modders, hackers, and developers that Microsoft eventually officially supported those cases for Windows PCs.Although the console still technically supports it, users will have to use an adapter to make that happen.
The hour-long Q has been viewed by nearly 6 million people, and it even had a celebrity cameo in the form of a very awkward looking Jerry Seinfeld.But the most interesting part of the Q was when Mark Zuckerberg, CEO and billionaire, denied that he was actually a gigantic lizard posing in human form.There have long been conspiracy theorists who believe that the world s most powerful people are actually lizards disguised in giant human-shaped costumes.Mark, are the allegations true that you re secretly a lizard?I m gonna, I m gonna have to go with no on that.But keep the high quality comments coming in please, this is surely on track to be a great Live Q if we continue getting stuff at that level of quality, Zuckerberg continued sarcastically.
