The only place in the UK where it's legal and encouraged to ride an electric scooter about the place among the normal people has been granted an extension to continuing making it so, with the Bird scheme in London's Olympic Park given permission to extend its self-contained public trial of the powered scooter rental scheme.The Olympic Park says it's allowing the Bird-brand electric scooters to stay until the end of September 2019 now, with the usual caveats about not taking them out of the park or deviating from the prescribed routes in place: and they won't work at all on football days, as you can imagine the utter carnage that might cause.Potential renters even have to have a valid driving licence too, as if they're proper vehicles rather than a fad for the nation's growing army of hormone-fed, man-sized children to enjoy until something stupider comes along.

The Huawei Mate X is set to make its debut this September, but rumour has it that the foldable handset will be shipping with a smaller battery than initially planned.When we saw the device at MWC 2019 earlier this year, it housed a 4,500 mAh battery with 55W supercharging that juiced up the phone to 85 per cent in just 30 minutes.The Mate X was supposed to release last month, but was delayed after Samsung pushed back the launch date of its Galaxy Fold to address the plethora of issues it was riddled with.Now the final spec sheet for the Mate X has apparently leaked and it looks like the battery capacity has been reduced by 100mAh, down to 4,400mAh, which appears to be supported by the 8g difference in weight.The phone now weighs 287g.The Mate X also looks like it'll run Android Pie 9 out of the box.

Apple may be only days away from buying Intel’s modem chip business, a new report claims, with the alleged talks taking place only months after Intel announced that it would start winding down its smartphone modem business.The talks are in an ‘advanced’ stage, at least according to sources that leaked the alleged plan.The deal would reportedly cover both the patents portfolio and staff, valuing it at $1 billion or more.In mid-April hours after Apple revealed a new deal with Qualcomm, Intel announced that it was dropping its 5G cellular modem plans, a reversal of its original intention to launch a 5G modem in 2020.Less than two weeks later, a leak surfaced claiming that Intel was looking for a customer to buy its modem chip business.In an update on the matter published today, the Wall Street Journal claimed on behalf of unnamed sources ‘familiar with the matter’ that Apple has been talking with Intel about buying the modem chip business.

It is Captain Kathryn Janeway, Pirate Queen of the Quadrant.She is not the Janeway you know, a tiny scientist cast-off to a faraway galaxy and slowly driven insane by the task set before her: Trying to unite her crew and make her way home.She’s the Janeway of the Mirror Universe, and she may or may not have two all-metal arms.IDW announced today at San Diego Comic-Con a new single-issue story titled Mirrors and Smoke, set in Star Trek’s Mirror Universe, and centred on the mirror version of Janeway and her crew.It comes in the wake of the prior Mirror Universe series, Mirror Broken and Terra Incognita, which not only introduced us to Mirror Universe versions of the Next Generation cast, but most importantly, gifted us Buff Picard.The press release describes Mirrors and Smoke as a fun adventure, that sounds like something I may have written for a Janeway/Seven fanfic archive in 2008 (only with less Neelix).

The above image is a shot of Georgia Tech’s latest robot posed next to a penny.The 3D printed bot is roughly two millimeters in length — or about the size of the world’s smallest ants, per the school.The tiny devices are designed to move using vibration from a variety of sources, ranging from ultrasound to more traditional speakers.With the proper source, the bristles allow them to move four times their own size in roughly a second by moving the legs up and down.Different sized legs react differently, responding to a variety of different frequencies The actuators that generate the vibration are outside of the robot, however, since batteries small enough to be housed on their bodies simply don’t exist.The research team believes robots of this size could ultimately prove useful for a variety of different tasks, ranging from environmental sensing to human body repair.

Lei Jun, the founder of Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi, will soon have a third listed company under his belt after his office software firm Beijing Kingsoft Office Software moved a step closer to trading shares on China’s newly launched technology innovation board in Shanghai.Kingsoft Office’s response to an inquiry from the Shanghai Stock Exchange on its listing application has been updated, according to information published on Monday by the Sci-Tech Innovation Board, known as the STAR Market.That paves the way for the initial public offering, which would be the third for Lei after his smartphone startup Xiaomi and Kingsoft Software, which are both listed in Hong Kong.In its prospectus, Kingsoft Office claims to be the country’s “leading” office software and service provider, competing against US software giant Microsoft.It offers products such as WPS Office and Kingsoft PowerWord, which can be used on mainstream operating platforms such as Windows, Linux, Android, and iOS.The mobile version of WPS Office, which is available in 220 countries and regions, has more than 181 million MAUs, according to the company’s prospectus published May 8.

Former Trump advisor and confidant Roger Stone isn’t going to jail after violating his gag order.Instead, a judge on Tuesday condemned him to perhaps a far worse fate: Stone has been banned from posting on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, according to BuzzFeed News.In February, US District Judge Amy Berman Jackson imposed a gag order on Stone, barring him from speaking about his ongoing legal case or the special counsel’s investigation into the Trump campaign.This gag order came shortly after Stone went on a speaking tour across networks like CNN and Fox News after he was indicted by the special counsel.But only a week after being gagged, Stone posted a photo of Jackson on Instagram with an image of crosshairs near her head.Stone said that the image was part of a logo pictured in the background of the image, and he deleted the post shortly after it was published, recropping it so the target wasn’t visible.

NEVS, which in 2012 became the urn holding the ashes of Saab, has been working on its own vision of our autonomous future, releasing a clever concept to that end at CES Asia in 2017.AutoX is a startup focused on delivering an autonomous vehicle platform.Together, the two hope to take Europe by storm with robotaxis, according to their latest announcement.The vehicle's design will be based on the NEVS InMotion concept, and it will use AutoX's Autonomous Drive platform.Testing is scheduled to begin in the third quarter of 2019, which means the two will have to act fast if they want to meet their goal of getting those cars on European public roads a year from then.Like many other robotaxi-based ideas of autonomy, NEVS and AutoX hope that their work can produce better living through the reduction of traffic.

The US government has started to ease its ban on domestic companies doing business with Huawei, stating that some firms will be licensed to supply the Chinese giant.Huawei has been frozen out of the US device and telecoms equipment markets for several years, and earlier this year was effectively blacklisted by Washington on national security grounds.The ruling limited Huawei’s access to components and meant its handsets would no longer receive updates for the Android operating system from Google or access to its popular applications.Everything you need to knowAlthough Huawei is building its own operating system and produces its own components (it already makes its own Kirin processors), the absence of key services like Google Maps and the Google Play Store is a huge blow in terms of the appeal of its devices in Western markets.Meanwhile, the production of components such as modems is an expensive, laborious task.

The Raspberry Pi 4 is a massive upgrade over legacy models, while still coming in at the same price.One of the most significant moves is the switch to USB-C for power, but it turns out that this port has a rather interesting issue.According to TechRepublic, Raspberry Pi co-creator Eben Upton has confirmed claims that the Pi 4 won’t work when used with certain USB-C cables.More specifically, it doesn’t work with so-called e-marked cables, such as those used on Apple Macbooks and several other laptops.“A smart charger with an e-marked cable will incorrectly identify the Raspberry Pi 4 as an audio adapter accessory, and refuse to provide power,” Upton was quoted as saying.The reason for the compatibility issue is due to the design of the USB-C port on the new computing platform.

Snoop Dogg isn’t a stranger to working with brands and releasing odd but lovable ads—or even to working on projects with unlikely partners such as Martha Stewart.But when Klarna, a fintech company that offers consumers a buy-now-pay-later option with more than 1,000 U.S. retailers, rebranded in 2017, Snoop wanted to join (and eventually became a minority shareholder).The Stockholm-based company, whose competition ranges from Afterpay to PayPal, and its agency partner DDB Stockholm wanted to pivot from a “boring” blue-color scheme and male-driven financial-type company chock-full of legalese to something that spoke to consumers and made them feel like they could trust the brand, according to David Sandström, Klarna’s CMO.“The industry itself is losing the trust of an entire generation, and that is obviously affecting retailers.But it’s also affecting individuals, and people feel cheated by these companies,” Sandström said.“[We did the rebranding to see if] we can find relevancy again, become part of people’s lives [and] pop culture.

Facebook's newly announced cryptocurrency Libra is facing more pushback, this time reportedly from the Indian government.In April 2018, all entities regulated by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) were banned from dealing in cryptocurrencies and virtual coins, although individuals trading currencies like bitcoin remains legal.However, last month it was reported that the Indian government is working on draft laws that would propose a jail sentence for any crypto users.Neither Facebook nor Garg's office immediately responded to a request for comment.Facebook last month unveiled the global digital coin, which will be managed by a governing body called the Libra Association and through a wallet named Calibra.Facebook is working alongside 27 launch partners for Libra, including PayPal, Visa, Uber, Coinbase, Lyft, Mastercard, Vodafone, eBay and Spotify, but aims to have 100 members in the Libra Association by 2020.

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. -- Human waste might be an unpleasant public health burden, but scientists at the University of Illinois see sanitation as a valuable facet of global ecosystems and an overlooked source of nutrients, organic material and water.Human beings derive benefits from the ecosystems around them - services that often go undervalued in traditional economic systems, the researchers said.These ecosystem benefits include things like forests providing wood as a building material and natural hydrological processes that improve water quality."In previous research, we have shown that human waste can provide a potentially valuable source of nutrients and water to enhance agriculture," said lead author John Trimmer, a civil and environmental engineering graduate student."In the new study, we expand this concept and set out to find connections between ecosystem services and the recovery of nutrients, water and organic matter from sanitation systems - then define and analyze the viability of pathways through which those recovered resources might further enhance ecosystem services."The researchers found that between 2000 and 2018, there were over 56,000 published studies that discussed sanitation and resource recovery and approximately 36,000 on ecosystem services; of these, 155 discussed the linkages between the two fields.
