  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
  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: W
  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
  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 transitio
  10. LG Chem, Korea’s largest chemical company, is expected to supply electric vehicle (EV) batteries for Tesla’s first plant in China. Until now, Tesla has relied on Japanese battery maker Panasonic for the EV models it produces in the U.S. Production of Tesla’s Model 3 in China is set to begin later this year, less than 12 months after it started building its plant in Shanghai. For LG Chem, the deal reflects the company’s leadership in the lithium-ion battery market; LG Chem already has partnerships with automakers like Audi, Mercedes-Benz and Volvo. LG Chem projects that it will double its EV ba
  11. Biogen and Invitae, two leading biotechnology and genomics companies, recently announced the availability of a rapid results genetic testing program for spinal muscular atrophy (SMA). The test will reduce the definitive diagnosis from 21 to just four days, at no charge to individuals in the U.S.6 SMA is often a life-threatening disease, characterized by loss of motor neurons in the spinal cord and lower brain stem. As it progresses, the disease can cause severe and progressive muscle atrophy and weakness.7 Faster diagnostics will allow for earlier intervention, treatment and, potentially, bett
  12. Binance, the world’s biggest crypto exchange, has launched its own blockchain. Here’s what that means.
  13. Facebook said it stored millions of Instagram passwords without the proper security measures.
  14. Wow! A lot of profiteering in that room. How to best caption this photo? LOL "Say have you heard of Monsanto and Halliburton?"
  15. You thought ordering that colon cleansing tea off Instagram was easy before? You’re in for a real treat now. Instagram is adding a checkout feature that’ll let users buy products from brands and retailers on their feed directly inside the app, meaning they won’t have to leave Instagram to finish the transaction. Advantage retailers: When it takes fewer steps to complete a purchase, shoppers are far more likely to smash that “place order” button. Advantage Instagram: First, it’ll keep a small cut of each sale. Plus, it makes sense for IG parent Facebook. For now, only Insta
  16. Yesterday was a historic one for Facebook (+0.69%). It announced big changes to its rules for advertisers to settle a cluster of lawsuits claiming it allowed ad buyers to illegally discriminate against minorities—mainly people of color. The backstory: Two years’ worth of investigative reports (and a handful of high-profile lawsuits) uncovered how some ad buyers abused FB’s platform to block minority groups from seeing ads about certain opportunities for housing, employment, and credit. Going forward, Facebook will remove age, gender, and ZIP code targeting for housing, employment, an
  17. But don’t worry about hiding your stash in your video game console. After all, you may not even have a console after Google’s big announcement yesterday. It revealed a new video game streaming platform called Stadia that hopes to push the industry further into the cloud. How it works No one likes a backseat gamer, but it’s helpful to have Google VP Phil Harrison teach us one way to fire up a game on Stadia: You watch a game trailer on YouTube. When the video is over, you get the option to “Play on Stadia.” If you select that option, the game will launch in that same YouTub
  18. Imagine how much gas we would all save.... accidents wouldn't kill people... we would all live much closer to work.... AND we all might get skinny in the process 😉
