Hey guysSo you're just starting electronics or have been a hobbiest for a while now. A power supply is a must for, so in this instructable I am going to show you how we can make a very basic and easy to use power supply for practically nothing. The power supply can deliver upto 20 volts at 3 amps and is more than enough for most tasks and with the way we are dependent on our smartphones (or USB devices in general) I decided to add an USB power supply that can be used to charge your phone (completely optional though I just used it for my convenience) In a previous instructable I had shown you how you could build a power supply which had a couple of fixed voltages and a variable one. Though the build was a little more complex I hadn’t included a high power output option ...

Microsoft confirms some Windows 10 source code has leaked

It’s not clear if the arrests are directly linked to the source code leak, but Microsoft is evidently concerned about some potential intrusions into its networks by Windows enthusiasts. The alleged offences took place between January and March, and a large dump of confidential Windows 10 builds was leaked to Beta Archive on March 24th. An administrator of Beta Archive, named only as "mrpijey," revealed "with the help of members (whose names shall never be mentioned) I've downloaded a whole lot of Windows Insider builds of Windows 10 directly from Microsoft" at the time of the leak. Ars Technica also reports that Microsoft’s build systems may have been hacked in March.

Waymo picks ex-Tesla engineering chief to build them a driverless car

Waymo has not revealed any plans to build its own car, instead working with automakers like Fiat Chrysler to provide the cars. Waymo then outfits the cars with the specialized hardware for self-driving, and in the case of the Chrysler Pacifica minivans, the hardware team even adjusted the car’s weight and some of the features. This could be Waymo’s plan of action for the future, instead of investing millions into the complex car manufacturing market.

The 100 Best Android Apps of 2017

I've come to think of the Google Play app store a little like a galaxy. From a distance, the sheer number of apps is staggering, making it hard to taken in all at once. But zoom in on any one of those apps, and the distance between them, in terms of quality and what they offer, is vast. Consider: If you looked at an app from Google Play every second, without stopping, it would take more than 23 days to see them all. That's hardly a good use of time. So instead I present this list, the 100 essential apps that you need, whether you're on the best and newest Android phone or still plodding along on a dusty tablet.

Technics SL-1200GR turntable, for DJs or audiophiles or both?

When I play LPs for non-audiophiles old enough to have grown up with vinyl, they can't get over how quiet my records are. They remember LPs with lots of pops, clicks, scratches and rumble, but not at my house! Even some of my 50-year-old albums are remarkably quiet, it's just too bad those folks never heard how good turntables could sound back in the day. No worries, it's not too late to buy a great turntable -- such as the new Technics SL-1200GR  -- and discover why audiophiles' passion for playing records never waned.

And the winner for best phone with dual-cameras is…

Both of these phones are great dual-camera phones. But the iPhone 7 Plus is a little bit better in all the right places: video, image stabilization, burst mode and Portrait Mode. And while the OnePlus 5 didn't win this camera battle, you should definitely consider it next time you're shopping for a new phone and want a bunch of really great photo features.

Linux owns supercomputing | ZDNet

First, since most of the world's top supercomputers are super-scalar research machines built for specialized tasks, each supercomputer is a standalone project with unique characteristics and optimization requirements. Thus, it's not affordable to develop a custom operating system for each system. With Linux, engineering teams can easily modify and optimize Linux to the one-off, groundbreaking designs that characterize the modern supercomputers.

How couples use Instagram to spotlight black queer love

"Dominic and I met as teenagers. We went to different high schools but they were close in proximity, so we had a lot of mutual friends. High school was also the time period in which we both came out to our families, although at separate times and unknowingly of each other's personal journeys. After graduating high school, life took me and Dominic in different directions. He went on to attend UCF in Orlando while I went to college in Kentucky. We reconnected one summer when I was in Orlando helping a friend move into her dorm and asked Dominic to have dinner with me. That night we talked for 4 hours and shut down the restaurant. Shortly after, Dominic asked if we could make it official and so our long distance relationship began. But the distance wouldn't be ending anytime soon. After college, I moved to New York for work and Dominic moved to D.C. to go to law school at Georgetown University. Finally, after 7 years of the back and forth, we are finally living together in Brooklyn... and engaged! Dominic and I feel lucky to have found love at such a young age. However, falling in love with another black man was scary in ways neither of us could have ever imagined.

Will iPhone 8 Feature True Wireless Charging?

iPhone: Best and worst features of the past 10 years - TechRepublic

The iPhone's switch from its traditional 30-pin connector to the Lightning jack, introduced with the iPhone 5, was almost as bad an adjustment. Suddenly, all the power charges, connectors, and third-party docks, including music speakers, iPhone users had purchased over the years were obsolete. While the iPhone's elimination of the traditional 3.5mm audio jack stands as a continuing annoyance, the 30-pin-to-Lightning-connector evolution at least permitted new iPhones to be thinner. That said, don't get too attached to all your Lightning chargers and connectors—someday Apple may replace future iPhones' Lightning connectors with USB-C ports.

Coinbase is reimbursing losses caused by the Ethereum flash crash

Microsoft says "no known ransomware" runs on Windows 10 S — so we tried to hack it

But given the dangers associated with macros, Word's "protected view" blocks macros from running when a file is downloaded from the internet or received as an email attachment. To get around that restriction, Hickey downloaded the malicious Word document he built from a network share, which Windows considers a trusted location, giving him permission to run the macro, so long as he enabled it from a warning bar at the top of the screen. The document could easily point an arrow to the bar, telling the user to disable protected mode to see the contents of the document -- a common social engineering technique used in macro-based ransomware. (If he had physical access to the computer, he could have also run the file from a USB stick, but he would have to manually unblock the file from the file's properties menu -- as easy as clicking a checkbox.)

How to set up ssh key authentication - TechRepublic

If you're a Linux administrator, you most certainly are using secure shell to gain access to your remote servers. Why? Secure shell is far more trustworthy than many other means of logging into your remote servers. When you attempt to log into a remote server, you will be asked for a username and password. As you transmit that information it is encrypted, so there's no need to worry. However, what if you could add yet another layer of security? This is not only possible, it's actually quite simple.

Can AI make your health insurance better? | ZDNet

Beyond the "healthy millennial" scenario, imagine a middle-aged woman who is pre-diabetic. Early engagement will make sense, for both the insurer and the member. Proactive management of the condition will clearly lower costs for the former. But it also constitutes responsible care coordination. Without machine learning, telling payers they should engage in such outreach might be glib at best; but with ML, insurers can implement it, as a matter of procedure, with a high degree of confidence, statistically, that it's in their interest to do so.

Bone-sniffing dogs to search for Amelia Earhart's remains

The group's Earhart Project has spent decades testing the hypothesis that Earhart and her navigator Fred Noonan landed safely on Gardner Island, now called Nikumaroro, about 400 miles (640 kilometers) southeast of their intended landing spot, Howland Island. According to the project's website, the group believes Earhart and Noonan survived on the island for a time as castaways, catching and cooking small fish, seabirds, turtles and clams.

Waymo could be a $70 billion business, says Morgan Stanley

The valuation estimate is enormous, higher than that of Tesla, Ford, and Uber, valued at $50 billion, $44 billion, and $50 billion respectively. The analysts consider the sophistication of Waymo’s self-driving system to be far ahead of other vendors, which could lead to a stranglehold on the market, similar to Android on mobile.

Alphabet says Travis Kalanick knew one of Uber’s acquisitions had taken Alphabet files

Judge William Alsup recently ordered Uber to produce documents and correspondence related to the case, including information showing whether any evidence had been destroyed. On Wednesday, Alphabet cited a June 5 Uber court filing that shows Kalanick asked Levandowski to destroy the documents in question. Uber had to present the information by March of this year but didn’t report its findings until June.

Leak of Windows 10 Source Code Raises Security Concerns

First reported by The Register and confirmed by Microsoft on Friday night, the leak contains source code “to the base Windows 10 hardware drivers plus Redmond’s PnP code, its USB and Wi-Fi stacks, its storage drivers, and ARM-specific OneCore kernel code.” With that information, a hacker can hunt for vulnerabilities within some of the most trusted levels of the operating system. The code also reportedly contains the private debugging symbols that are normally stripped from public releases. These symbols give programmers extra information about which functions and data a piece of code is calling.

Wonder Woman Actor Says Chief Is Actually a Demi-God

Indian Country Today previously reported a little-known detail about Wonder Woman’s first encounter with Chief, one of the men recruited by Steve Trevor to help Wonder Woman on her mission. The two of them first addressed each other in the Blackfoot language, a native language of the Americas spoken by about 8,000 people in northern Montana and southern Alberta, Canada. It was the only language that wasn’t subtitled in the film, which makes this next part kind of amazing. During their chat, Chief introduced himself as Napi, a Blackfoot demi-god.

Apple's new keyboard rescues the number pad, wins nerds' hearts

Those loyal to the number and symbol row above the keyboard are still in luck, because that's not going anywhere. But with the addition of a traditional keypad on the right -- a popular request, according to Apple -- coders, engineers and accountants (to name a few) can now input numbers with more speed and accuracy. Some creative apps, such as Pro Tools and Final Cut, also use number pad shortcuts.

What can you buy on the dark web? UK politicians' passwords

As part of an investigation by  The Times , the London-based publication found passwords that belonged to 1,000 British members of Parliament and staff, 7,000 police employees and more than 1,000 diplomats. The country's education secretary, Justine Greening, and business secretary, Greg Clark, were also swept up in the breach.

This flawed Confederate sub led to future undersea advances

The sub had sunk twice before, killing 13 crew members, including its inventor, Horace Lawson Hunley. But while its builders knew what they needed to do to make a submarine an effective weapon of war, they didn't have the technology to do it. For reasons we still don't know, the Hunley sank that night, too, killing all eight men inside it. It was the sub's third, and last sinking, in six months. The Hunley disappeared into the sediment until it was found 131 years later.
