What's your price for flight?

When you want to learn about electronics as a hobby, you will, of course, need to make alot of circuits, and you need to test them. For that you will need a power supply, but you will often find yourself needing different voltages for different projects, so any power supply wont do, and you would want something thats a bit more versatile. You can go out and buy an off-the-shelf Lab PSU with alot of different features, but these are often very expensive, and you dont need all that fancy features, when starting out with electronics, so you can make do with alot less. So where do you find a suitable power supply for your new hobby? Thats easy. In almost any old computer theres a standard ATX power supply, which supply 3.3V, 5V, and 12V, which is the three most widely used voltages for electronics, which makes it a ...

FanDuel and DraftKings are dropping their merger

That left FanDuel and DraftKings in July with a critical decision: Fight the FTC in what might be lengthy, costly litigation, or abandon their deal and attempt to go it alone. Even during a court case, the two companies wouldn’t have been able to work together on strategy. To that end, they opted to walk away Thursday.

Oculus may cut the cord with $200 wireless VR headset

This easy accessibility of a standalone headset could serve as a selling point, Stephanie Llamas, vice president of research and strategy at SuperData Research, said in a statement. She added, "an untethered, self-contained device for $200 seems like either a loss-leader or a highly simplified VR experience."

Senator: Courts may have to decide how open your internet is

Franken: Yes. I talked to Ed Markey [a senator from Massachusetts] and he said we're up to more than 6.5 million comments in total to the FCC. That certainly breaks the record of 4 million comments filed to the FCC a couple of years ago, which made so much of an impact on the 2015 rules. So that's a good number. I think that will hopefully have an effect on the FCC, but also on the courts. And since this issue may end up there again, that's important.

US Customs says it can’t search cloud data at the border

While McAleenan’s testimony draws a sharp distinction between devices and the cloud, the division is often less sharp in practice. The letter’s phasing leaves room for border searches of recent email and social media messages, provided the information is accessible on a traveler’s phone at the time of the search (that is, not “solely” on a remote server).

Did an FDA Panel Really Just Approve the First Gene Therapy Treatment?

In a world in which being “first” can mean clickier headlines, more traction and eventually even more research dollars, it’s a label that matters. It is clear that the drug—the practically unpronounceable tisagenlecleucel—is a landmark achievement. CAR-T therapy, which several other companies are also pursuing drugs for, works by extracting and isolating a patient’s T cells, genetically altering them, and then infusing them back into the patient’s body. In one key clinical trial, 83 percent of 52 patients for whom chemotherapy did not work achieved a complete or partial remission by three months after their CAR-T infusion. After one year, 79 percent of those patients were still alive.

3 rules on how to use VR data analytics for your product

In contrast, effective virtual reality analytics provide you with statistics of the trends and outliers that you weren’t aware of but should be; when creating and revising your content. VR analytics provide real value in understanding your audience’s preferences and behavior. Once a deep understanding is achieved, the opportunities are endless. Refine your target market, strategy, reach or whatever it may be, because knowing your audience’s varying tastes provides answers to the questions you didn’t even know you had.

Gallery: 15 books that every programmer should read - TechRepublic

The Art of Computer Programming is a massive multi-volume series of books that Knuth began working on in 1962.

Woman knocks over $200,000 worth of art trying to take a selfie

Inside a serene space, singular objects rest on plinths: these are crowns, or at least some semblance of what a crown might be, presented as precious trophies or boons. Some are classic in form, intricately crafted while others are very simple in design, as though rendered from a child’s drawing. Others have more elaborate forms: alien, hybrid, they are at times even contorted into inhibiting devices, somewhere between a crown and a mask. Some are fashioned of precious materials like gold or silver, some of marble; others of more humble material like wood, nylon, scrap metal, or dried herbs and flowers. These are variously imagined forms of the goods of desire that we journeyers hope to gain, the boon that awaits us when we have come through the battle. Flanking the crown room is a small, intimate space, inhabited by a collection of actual meteorite stones, modest in appearance but holding within them the secrets of the universe.

Get ready for the LinkedIn video pivot

Last fall, Oculus showed off a very early prototype of a standalone headset, code-named " Santa Cruz ." Meant to deliver much of the same high-quality VR functionality as its Rift, the device was wireless, requiring no additional computing power other than what it had on board. The Facebook-owned division wouldn't talk about pricing, and didn't say anything about when it would be released. But the headset did offer positional tracking—the ability for the wearer to move around in physical space in VR rather than simply being at the center of 360-degree scenes, as is the case with mobile VR systems like Samsung's Gear VR or Google's Daydream.

AT&T, NetComm Wireless to offer fixed-wireless broadband to rural areas in 18 US states - TechRepublic

On Thursday, AT&T and NetComm Wireless announced a partnership to address this disparity. A new initiative from the two providers aims to improve fixed-wireless broadband access in rural America. AT&T will be using NetComm Wireless—a supplier of fixed-wireless equipment for Australia's national broadband—to outfit its outdoor wireless antennas. For rural areas across 18 US states, these antennas can provide connectivity speeds of 10Mbps and over.

Fantasy sports sites FanDuel and Draft Kings terminate their merger

How big is the Larsen C iceberg compared to your town? This tool will show you

To fully understand just how enormous the floating trillion-ton ice mass is, the German news site Morgenpost made a helpful interactive.  The site is in German but easy to navigate. You can basically slide an iceberg-shaped graphic all around the world—zooming in or out when you want—to get an idea of how big the Larsen C iceberg is compared to geographical areas you're familiar with. Here it is covering all five boroughs of New York City, some of upstate New York, some of Long Island, and parts of New Jersey.

SCIENCE: 5 things to know about the iceberg

It's finally adrift. When the Larsen C Ice Shelf calved yesterday, it sent one of the largest icebergs ever recorded slipping into a sea frosted with smaller chunks of ice. It marked the end of a decadeslong splintering first seen by satellites in the 1960s. The crack stayed small for years until, in 2014, it began racing across the Antarctic ice.

Man Stuck Inside ATM Rescued After Slipping Customers Terrifying Notes

Under capitalism, money imprisons us all, but for one man in Corpus Christi, Texas, this arrangement transcended mere metaphor recently. On Wednesday afternoon, the contractor (whose name has not been released) was fixing a lock in a room connected to a Bank of America ATM when, suddenly, he trapped himself in. Having left his phone in the car, he was unable to call for help. So, with an impending Castaway situation at hand, the man had to get creative—or else.

Facebook's Oculus to fight Apple's AR and VR push with new $200 standalone headset in 2018

Facebook's Oculus is apparently in the early stages of developing a standalone mobile headset, with use cases like watching a movie on a plane, without needing a connected computer or smartphone. Bloomberg 's Mark Gurman believes that Oculus is seeking to expand to stand-alone devices, setting it apart from existing offerings necessitating a smartphone like Google Daydream or Samsung Gear VR. According to Thursday's report , the device will be driven by a Snapdragon processor of some sort, and will hit $200 price point at some point in 2018. The device allegedly is code-named "Pacific" and on the exterior resembles a compact version of the Oculus Rift. It will feature Oculus branding in most of the world, and Xiaomi in China —probably because of Oculus executive Hugo Barra's involvement with the company prior to coming to Facebook. The first iteration of the technology is not expected to include positional tracking —but it is allegedly on the road map for the future, according to sources familiar with the matter contacted by Bloomberg . The rumored headset may not be a surprise, however.

The Two Day Try-On Rule for Clothes Shopping

I’ve always been a big online shopper and a frequent impulse buyer. Because of this, my closet usually consisted of ten things I wear all the time and an embarrassing amount of unworn clothing with the tags still on or, even worse, things I’d ripped the tag off immediately but never left the house in. I often buy things that I like the idea of wearing but because I can’t truly pull them off they just sit in my closet, waiting for my next frustrating trip to a consignment shop.

These Bears Eat as Much Junk Food as You Do

Moreover, who cares about a hairy army of junk-food loving bears stumbling around the woods of northern Wisconsin? Mainly, the research highlights the degree to which humans cause some wildlife populations to rely on them for food. If killing and scavenging is the bear equivalent to cooking meals, and eating bait is ordering delivery, then bears are ordering in every night of the week, and on some days they’re even ordering lunch. This is normal for some humans, but obviously not for bears, and could have important implications for the way states operate their bating seasons and manage their bear populations.

That is, until they enter a door in the back of a spooky bookshop and find themselves trapped in an evil demonic amusement park called Horrorland. And based on the artwork, they’re sure to meet up with Slappy, the famous Goosebumps dummy who launched the HorrorLand book series with Revenge of the Living Dummy .

Kesha is the voice of her own comeback

The singer, who has been engulfed in a highly public legal battle with producer Dr. Luke (née Lukasz Sebastian Gottwald) for the better part of three years, is speaking up loudly for folks everywhere with her latest single, "Woman"—but Kesha isn't just owning her own voice on the mic. She has also been able to slowly foster an environment where she can express herself in an authentic voice, and that has made all the difference leading up to the release of her third studio album, Rainbow .

Why your company needs clear security policies: A cautionary tale - TechRepublic

This last concept can be a boon for all since it provides risk-free internet access to employees or guests via smartphone, tablet or laptop. An arrangement like this means internal systems are protected and users can get online without eating up a mobile data plan, which is a generous perk. They can still use their lunch hour to see what gourmet meals Uncle Bob has cooked for Aunt Betsy or check out photos from their wayfaring friend Teena's latest trip. Or, on a work-related note, if cloud-based sites they use for work are blocked from company systems, they might be able to access them on personal devices (so long as any applicable policies/the security department permits).

What Would It Take to Kill Daenerys' Dragons?

When Daenerys hatched three dragons from what seemed to be petrified eggs during the finale of Game of Thrones ’ first season, the balance of power between the contenders for the Iron Throne began to shift. Thanks to her ever-growing, ever-more powerful “children,” Daenerys has transformed from one of the show’s underdogs to arguably its most powerful political player. Which raises a question: How could any army in Westeros take on the returning Targaryen and her forces? How could anyone kill one of Daenerys’ dragons?

What is artificial intelligence and why it'll be a $45 billion business in 2020 (NVDA, GOOGLE, INTC, QCOM) | 07/13/17

These AI systems all operate in basically the same way. Imagine a system that tries to identify whether a photo has a cat in it. For a human, this is fairly easy, but a computer has a hard time figuring it out. AI systems are unique because they are set up like human brains. You feed a cat photo in one end, and it bounces around a lot of different checkpoints until it comes out the other end with a yes or no answer - just like your eyes passing your view of a cat through all the neurons in your brain. AI is even talked about in terms of neurons and synapses, just like the human brain.

Off the Map: The Rough Road Ahead for Self-Driving Cars in China

China is creating roadblocks for U.S. auto makers and tech companies to bringing self-driving cars to the world’s largest auto market.

High-definition maps are crucial for autonomous cars to...

Robots will steal 15 million jobs in UK, widen gap between the rich and poor, report says - TechRepublic

While there's been much talk of retraining workers for new jobs maintaining robotics systems or automation programs, there will also be a stronger demand for soft skills in order to secure the available jobs. "This will advantage those from higher socioeconomic backgrounds, who typically have greater opportunities to develop these skills," the report said.

Jaguar reveals E-Pace, the crossover SUV for millennial couples

Crossover SUVs are the pop music of the car world: scorned by purists, liked by the masses, and disproportionately successful in terms of sales. Jaguar’s F-Pace is the perfect example of this trend, selling more than 80,000 sport utility vehicles after launching in 2016 and accounting for almost half of the company’s 172,848 cars sold in the last financial year. With such a runaway commercial success, it was inevitable that Jaguar would return for another bite at the cherry, and today it does so with the unveiling of the new E-Pace compact performance SUV. It’s a scaled-down F-Pace — in price, power, and size — but it’s still the same formula of giving the people what they really want.

Facebook Plans to Unveil a $200 Wireless Oculus VR Headset for 2018

Currently VR hardware comes in two flavors: cheap headsets that turn smartphones into virtual reality players (like Samsung’s $130 Gear VR) and high-end gaming rigs (like Facebook’s $400 Oculus Rift) that hook up to $1,000-plus desktop computers. Facebook’s new headset is designed to bridge the gap -- a device that will sell for as little as $200 and need not be tethered to a PC or phone, according to people familiar with its development. It will ship next year and represent an entirely new category.
