  1. Professor Klaus Schwab in Davos, Switzerland has an almost evil sounding voice for this plan..... The Fourth Industrial Revolution.... human augmentation and genetic editing?
  2. Is Microsoft THAT desperate for money that they can't offer just an ad at the top? I think I might be spotting an opening for competition here. Google is currently only placing 3 on top and 3 on the bottom of search results. Sigh...
  3. "When two protons graze each other, their squished electromagnetic fields intersect. These fields skip the classical “amplify” etiquette that applies at low energies and instead follow the rules outlined by quantum electrodynamics. Through these new laws, the two fields can merge and become the “E” in E=mc². “If you read the equation E=mc² from right to left, you’ll see that a small amount of mass produces a huge amount of energy because of the c² constant, which is the speed of light squared,” says Alessandro Tricoli, a researcher at Brookhaven National Laboratory—the US headquarters for the ATLAS experiment, which receives funding from DOE’s Office of Science. “But if you look at the formula the other way around, you’ll see that you need to start with a huge amount of energy to produce even a tiny amount of mass.” The LHC is one of the few places on Earth that can produce and collide energetic photons, and it’s the only place where scientists have seen two energetic photons merging and transforming into massive W bosons."
      Hello guest!
  4. As the world becomes more electrified, the race is on to build cheaper, longer-lasting, more energy-dense batteries. One of the most promising technologies in this space is the solid state battery, developed by an absolute legend in the battery world, one of the inventors of the lithium ion battery and recent Nobel Prize winner John B. Goodenough.
  5. ummm.... 10% in 170 years!?!?! Is anyone else doing the math here? so in another millennium solar winds could potentially decimate all life and atmosphere on Earth? Please tell me I'm mistaken. I guess it won't affect any of us reading this though... so there is that.
  6. Notice how you can search for all the commandlets that have the verb "get" in the example above
  7. Never buy a 'new' brand of beer because 'it was on sale.' If we're in the backyard and the TV in the den is on, that doesn't mean we're not watching it. Don't tell anyone we can't afford a new car. Tell them we don't want one. Whenever possible please try to say whatever you have to say during commercials. Only wearing your new lingerie once does not send the message that you need more. It tells us lingerie is a bad investment. Please don't drive when you're not driving. Don't feel compelled to tell us how all the people in your stories are related to one another: We're just nodding, waiting for the punchline. The quarterback who just got pummeled isn't trying to be brave. He's just not crying. Big difference! When the waiter asks if everything's okay, a simple 'Yes' is fine. It does not mean that is your chance to complain about the taste of the water and the salsa. What do you mean, 'leering?' She's obstructing my view. When I ask, 'How many guys have you slept with?' It would be much appreciated if you did not answer honestly. When I'm turning the wheel and the car is nosing onto the off-ramp, saying 'Oh, this is our exit, Honey' is not really necessary. When you're not around, I belch so loudly that I even appall myself. The temperature in the cave will be my responsibility. It will be slightly to moderately cooler than you want it. SportsCenter starts at 10:00 P.M. and runs one hour. This is an excellent time for you to pay bills, put laundry in the dryer, or talk to your sister. Is it too much to ask to have the bra match the underwear? If we see you in the morning and at night, why call us at work? You probably don't want to know what we're thinking about. It's in neither your interest nor ours to take the Cosmo quiz together!
  8. The HoloLens 2 started shipping yesterday. Microsoft's new-and-improved AR headset costs the equivalent of five iPhone 11s ($3,500) and is catered to corporate customers. What's new: The "mixed reality" device has more digital perception and interaction capabilities. Compared to the original HoloLens, it tracks more hand gestures, has 2x the field of view, and boasts "single-digit" lag time. How it works: The headset's visor superimposes 3D digital objects on the real world, and lets you drag, drop, and resize those objects. You summon a menu by holding an arm palm-up and touching your wrist like Iron Man. Let's just say I tried sneaking a headset out of the demo in my pocket (it didn't work). Also at the demo was the startup Spatial, which makes "shared augmented workplaces," aka Slack on steroids. Using a HoloLens 2 and Spatial's product, I met the avatar of someone who wasn't there, moved content around in 3D, and put a digital rover on Mars. Takeaway: HoloLens 2 truly feels like the future—but one that's far out for non-Fortune 1,000 employees. If you work at a company that does remote assistance, virtual training, or visual 3D collaboration, you may be in luck.
  9. Several big tech companies recently announced a new joint effort to promote better data security. Confidential Computing Consortium will be an open-source community that includes Alibaba Cloud, Baidu, Google Cloud, IBM and Microsoft, among others. Current protection strategies address data at rest and in transit. However, a fully encrypted lifecycle for sensitive data remains a work in progress, and perhaps the most challenging step to take in data security.9 Computing has moved from on-premise to public domains to edge, but the cloud is a nascent industry with reams of data still to transition. Attention this consortium brings to data security could accelerate the adoption of next-generation cloud and edge computing. --------------- 9. Confidential Computing Consortium, “New Cross-Industry Effort to Advance Computational Trust and Security for Next-Generation Cloud and Edge Computing,” Aug 21, 2019.
