As beautiful as Utah is, it has a serious pollution problem, particularly in the winter when emissions from power plants and cars and the full range of human activities conspire with Mother Nature – the weather and the unique topography of the Salt Lake City area – to trap air in the Salt Lake Valley.
We’re not exactly sure if this has anything to do with Star Wars finally getting an official release date, but quite a few movies have had their release dates shuffled around in the past several days. We just reported that The Fantastic Four got moved up from March 6, 2015 to June 19, 2015, and now the sequel to ID4 and the movie version of Assassin’s Creed have new release dates as well.
Your boss is the greatest threat to the Internet. Executives with an internet porn habit are not only infecting their systems with malware, but are keeping reporting of the viruses secret to hide their red-faces.
Right now, video games are still hot stuff in the marketplace, but it’s a very mercurial market that can go in whatever direction the wind is blowing. We’ve already seen the market being impacted by the upcoming console changes, and now one report feels that the Call of Duty games could already be done, at least artistically.
Netflix just announced that they will be doing a series of shows based on four Marvel characters, including Daredevil, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and Jessica Jones. Now word has come down that a familiar genre name, Drew Goddard, will be writing the Daredevil series.
Rikomagic is perhaps best known for its popular lineup of Android MK802 HDMI TV dongles (PC-on-a-stick).
Advanced plasma-based etching is a key enabler of Moore's Law that observes that the number of transistors on integrated circuits doubles nearly every two years. It is the plasma's ability to reproduce fine patterns on silicon that makes this scaling possible and has made plasma sources ubiquitous in microchip manufacturing.
Invisibility cloaking is no longer the stuff of science fiction: two researchers in The Edward S. Rogers Sr. Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering have demonstrated an effective invisibility cloak that is thin, scalable and adaptive to different types and sizes of objects.
With the rise of online open course platforms such as Khan Academy, MIT OpenCourseWare and iTunes U, it has never been easier to teach yourself everything from American history to semiconductor manufacturing. These courses enable students to advance at their own pace while accessing the limitless resources available on the internet for supplemental material.
When the Mars Atmosphere and Volatile Evolution Mission launches in November to study why the Red Planet is losing its atmosphere, one of its instruments will look to electrically charged particles called electrons for answers.
NASA has released a natural-color image of Saturn from space, the first in which Saturn, its moons and rings, and Earth, Venus and Mars, all are visible. The new panoramic mosaic of the majestic Saturn system taken by NASA's Cassini spacecraft, which shows the view as it would be seen by human eyes, was unveiled at the Newseum in Washington on Tuesday.
The Saks Fifth Avenue Holiday Catalog each year is often filled with expensive offerings designed to part the upper crust with a small portion of their wealth. One item in the 2013 catalog is a very spendy expression of the Cadillac ELR extended range electric vehicle, which in itself is a very pricey up market version of the Chevy Volt.
Everyone knows that the Bay of Fundy is a one big fat juicy tidal power possibility. Now there’s a real live bid to take a bite out of it – or, rather, several small bites out of it – on the Nova Scotia side of the Bay, incentivized by a feed-in tariff program that’s designed to encourage smaller-scale, locally based projects.
Geeks help our economy far more than we give them credit for. Beyond the technology we get from them, they fund the countless books, TV shows, mangas, and many other entertainment items lining the shelves in stores across the world.
You know that nothing would make you happier right now then to see someone use C4 explosives to blow up an Xbox and, even better, record it at 10 million frames per second. You can thank me later. For now, enjoy the carnage and mayhem in all its slow motion beauty.
In a nutshell and because you hate to read anything with lots of them word thingies: It's expensive. If you can afford the iPad Air, go for it, but if you can't then Nexus 7 or Kindle Fire HDX offer better deals. Is that why Apple gave this product a quiet launch?
British spooks used spoof sites of Slashdot and LinkedIn to distribute spying malware, a German newspaper has claimed.
It’s hard to think of a superhero story more in desperate need of a big screen reboot than The Fantastic Four. Well, okay, I’m still holding out hope for a Howard the Duck remake, but we think The Fantastic Four has much more potential.
I’m really not a fan of just copying someone else’s products. Yes Samsung has proven it can work but in the end it is still just a copy and it is far better to carve out your own space. That is what NVIDIA did first with Shield and now with the Tegra Note 7 which is similar in performance but rather than an integrated Tablet and Controller, this is a pure tablet.
