Hello everyone, this is my first instructable and I was almost not to publish it, because I missed some key points in the photographs. I hope even so, the instructable is comprehensive.The first lap desk I did was for my girlfriend. A friend of mine saw the desk and asked me to make one too, but ask me to add an adjustable inclination. This was the result of what he asked me to do.English is not my main language and a lot of this was translate with some really famous browser. Some words gave me a lot of trouble. One of those words was “slat”… Sometimes it translated it being a piece of wood others as it being mud. So ye, I hope it’s understandable at least. I also used mm because that’s what I’m used to. Hope you guys like this instructable.

Aura review: A unique and expensive home security gimmick

Unfortunately, it has a long list of shortcomings, like the small area of coverage and the lack of integration with other devices such as smart locks. What is a deal-breaker, however, is the price. At $500, it's just too expensive for what it offers, as well as the demographic its performance suits best, namely those who live in small homes or apartments. If you're serious enough about home security to spend that much, or if you have a medium or larger home, check out one of these alternatives.

Galaxy S8 vs. LG G6: We tell you which one to buy

But (and this is a big but), I definitely won't blame you if you go for the G6. The S8 is better and it won the most categories, true, but it isn't so much better than the G6. The G6 still looks and performs great, and has many of the same features as the S8 that make it so appealing (water resistance, slim bezels and Google Assistant). Plus, if you plan on getting a case anyway, you're probably not going to be hung up about the G6's look or durability. In general, the G6 does most of what the S8 can do -- but for a lower price tag to boot.

Home Automation buying guide

Maybe that means buying an additional device from the same brand as your original purchase, but it doesn't have to. In general, smart home manufacturers see the value in keeping things at least somewhat open, and many go out of their way to embrace third-party hubs and smart home platforms as a means of providing compatibility with other gadgets. That means that you've got a lot of options. And, if you're looking for an easy way to stay on top of what works with what, our handy smart home compatibility tracker is here to help.

What Trump’s first 100 days have meant for tech, science, and the future

Yet it has been an eventful hundred days. We won’t delve into every executive order and diplomatic shift, but the beginning of the Trump administration has had a profound impact on technology, science, and the future course of the planet. Media, politics, and so much else seems to have entered a new era, and it’s a surreal one. Even more than before he took office, Trump permeates the culture: news, television, music, even things that aren’t direct responses to Trump get pulled into his gravitational field. Rollbacks of environmental regulations and aggressive tweeting about North Korea mean we can now worry about two apocalypses at once: nuclear winter and climate change. (The fact that tweets can raise the specter of nuclear war is new, too.) The wall may end up being more of a fence or maybe just a metaphor, but metaphors have power, and hostile rhetoric coupled with aggressive deportations means the future looks more isolated and less connected than ever. Meanwhile, one of the primary drivers of interconnection, the internet, is being divvied up by corporations.

Apple, Tesla want changes to California's self-driving car tests

The tech titan wants California to redefine disengagement, so that companies will include instances wherein the human drivers had to take the wheel to prevent even minor traffic violations. However, it believes certain instances shouldn't be officially counted as disengagements anymore, such as handing back control to a human driver due to system error or so that they could navigate a construction site. The changes will give Apple, whose permit to test is fresh out of the DMV, more accurate data for its experiments.

Deep packet inspection: The smart person's guide - TechRepublic

Every parcel of digital information—including the email you send, Skype calls you make, and websites you load—is transmitted across the web in a formatted piece of structured data known as a "packet." Inside this packet is structured metadata that assures your data is routed to the proper destination. Analyzing these packets is a process known as deep packet inspection (DPI), and the practice is employed daily by enterprise companies, internet service providers (ISPs), and media companies.

Four of the wildest ideas from Amazon's Jeff Bezos (this is one of them ↓)

Facebook is about to have 4 different billion-user platforms

Mark Zuckerberg has often said that 1 billion users is a key threshold to begin monetization. For example, in 2014 Zuckerberg said, "Products don't really get that interesting to turn into businesses until they have about 1 billion people using them," referring to when Facebook would start earnestly working on building WhatsApp as a business. But given Instagram's fundamentally greater financial potential as an ad platform, it's a far more important service to get to 1 billion than messaging services. It's also not as if Facebook waited for Instagram to hit 1 billion before cranking up the monetization.

Prepare to worship the deities of 'American Gods'

In Slavic mythology, there are generally only two Zorya sisters mentioned — The Morning Star (Zorya Utrennyaya) and the Evening Star (Zorya Vechernyaya), but Gaiman's novel and the TV show  include a third: the Midnight Star (Zorya Polunochnaya). These sisters of different ages are relatives of Czernobog, and each represents a portion of the day. They're tasked with guarding the doomsday hound Simargl, who is chained to a distant star, because if he ever escapes, he'll devour the universe and bring about the end of the world. No pressure!

How Sheryl Sandberg’s Sharing Manifesto Drives Facebook

Of course, one could argue that Sandberg had begun down this path the moment she joined Facebook—a company that earns billions from getting people to open up about their lives. She and Zuckerberg have frequently been asked to lead by example. When Facebook lifted a tactic from Twitter and gave public figures the option of opening their profiles to people who weren’t friends but followers, “I wasn’t going to do it, and neither was Mark,” Sandberg says. Then a communications executive, Caryn Marooney, told them they would have to do it if they wanted others to fall in line. “I think the product has really changed us,” Sandberg says earnestly. Zuckerberg gives her a lot of credit, too. “When Sheryl first came to Facebook, she started a tradition of checking-in to our leadership meetings,” he wrote in an email. “Checking-in” means each person around the table is invited to discuss their current emotional and professional state before they get down to business. “Nine years later, we’re still doing it.

How the Son of Chinese Factory Workers Built a $1.5 Billion Startup

We still think of Silicon Valley as the world's technology hub, but China's quickly catching up. For one, consider this stat: China has created as many billion-dollar startups this year as the U.S. This week, Bloomberg Technology's Peter Elstrom and David Ramli travel to Shanghai to visit Colin Huang, the man behind the latest business to join this rarefied club of unicorns. Huang recounts his humble origins in Hangzhou and the various turning points in his life that took him to where he is today, at the center of China's bustling tech scene. At 37, now leading his fourth startup, Huang's just getting started.

Today's customer experience mandate: Avoid '50 first dates' | ZDNet

As Sprinkr's VP of Product Enablement, Paul Herman observed later in the day, without this integrated view you end up in the unenviable and unsatisfying situation of "having 50 first dates with a customer." That is, going through the same process of getting-to-know-you and initial engagement over and over again, as you they connect with you via different digital channels and devices over time. Addressed correctly, this disassociation of experience can be resolved by looking at the process holistically, then offering a more contextual and informed journey for the customer. This can be achieved by centrally managing customer identity, then building on historic knowledge of the customer and previous interactions with them.

Symantec promises audit-fest to placate Google trust reduction plans | ZDNet

LMDB -- First version of Redis written in Tcl

Thank you @tomas-fp , I was very happy to discover it since I did not ever remember at this point if the story I told to people about the first Tcl version having already lists was true, but actually it was far more advanced than that: there was already the concept of fork() for persistency for example, and certain comments and function names totally resamble modern Redis names / parts.

The death of the smartphone is further away than you think. And there is no 'Next Big Thing' | ZDNet

Apple adds one more year of warranty to first-gen Watches

Apple will still repair your first-gen Apple Watch if it breaks due to battery issues even if it's already older than two years. The tech titan has extended its wearable's repair coverage related to battery woes to last two years instead of one, according to a note Apple sent to authorized repair centers that 9to5mac got its hands on. If you include its first year with limited warranty, the device's owners can enjoy three years of coverage, and it's all thanks to a several reports complaining of batteries ballooning inside their timepieces.
