Google has confirmed that Huawei's upcoming flagship phone, the Mate 30 pro, won't have access to its apps or the Play Store.This news comes just over a week after the Chinese manufacturer was granted a further 90 days to trade with U.S. companies before being banned.Speaking with Reuters, a Google spokesperson has said that the Mate 30 won't be able to have access to Google apps or services.This is due to an executive order from May that prevents U.S. companies from trading with foreign companies that are deemed to be a national security risk.Huawei was granted a temporary 90-day license so it could continue to service and finish work with current customers, which was extended to November 20.The temporary license only applies to current products, and while many (including us) thought that perhaps that would leave the Mate 30 in the clear for an unimpeded release in September thanks to the temporary license.

over the years, there have been many enthusiasts who are trying to find a raison d'être for the luftskeppen.It is the latest example of this, in the line of the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis in austria Laxenburg.The mean length of 2,453 feet, and a diameter of about 412 meters).”While a ten-fold increase in the diameter and length of the increase in the volume of the hydrogen gas on-board, as well as its useful lift force significantly increased the amount of inclusion material by a factor of a hundred,” writes the article published in Energy conversion and management.the Researchers would like to use hydrogen instead of helium.With its 245 meters and a diameter of 41 metres, ran off the end of the war, over 200,000 cubic meters of hydrogen gas, which is enough to lift ten tons, in addition to the be the own weight of the fuel and, according to the article, other information on the end of the war, indicating that it could be a load of 19 tons).

Harley-Davidson vill göra mer än motorcyklar.För första gången har bolaget nu visat upp prototyper till en ny serie elcyklar.Det är ingen hemlighet att Harley-Davidson har jobbat med ett elcykelkoncept, men det senaste året har uppdateringarna om projektet varit få.Allt tyder nu på att konceptet snart kan gå från idé till verklighet.Under en årlig återförsäljarkonferens har det legendariska motorcykelbolaget presenterat prototyperna till en ny serie elcyklar, berättar Electrek.En bild från Harley-Davidson visar tre elcykelmodeller, alla med lite tjockare hjul och platta styren.

Whether anger, nostalgia, or resignation, the Android rebrand is a change no one gets to sit out – you kind of have to have an opinion on it.We’ve all been far too attached to the Bugdroid branding for far too long to simply not care.But for those worried Android is changing, fret not, because it actually changed a while ago.As my colleague Bogdan correctly points out, the rebrand was kind of long overdue.Android itself has had a major visual refresh every few years and yet the brand itself has not.I’ve been waxing lyrical for the past few years in successive Android OS reviews about Android’s maturation, polish, and sophistication.

The image revealed that the storm formed despite being battered by outside winds.The third named storm of the Atlantic Ocean hurricane season formed around 11 p.m. EDT on Aug. 20, far from land and almost 500 miles southeast of Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada.NASA's Aqua satellite obtained an infrared view of the storm nine hours later.An instrument aboard Aqua uses infrared light to analyze the strength of storms by providing temperature information about the system's clouds.The strongest thunderstorms that reach high into the atmosphere have the coldest cloud top temperatures.On Aug. 21 at 8:20 a.m. EDT (1220 UTC), the Moderate Imaging Spectroradiometer or MODIS instrument that flies aboard NASA's Aqua satellite gathered infrared data on Chantal.

Boken, framtagen av Apple och fylld med bilder på företagets egna produkter sedan 20 år tillbaka började säljas hösten 2016 till ett pris om 2 000 kronor för den lilla versionen, 3 000 kronor för den större.Tanken med boken, som för övrigt är tryckt på särskilt framtaget tyskt papper med kanter i matt silver, var att ”skapa ett arkiv med allt vi gjort,” berättade Jony Ive i en intervju.Men tajmingen var allt annat än lyckad, under ett år där Apple redan fått kritik för allt dyrare produkter (exempelvis Macbook Pro).Nu, snart tre år senare, ser Apple ut att börja fasa ut boken.Appleinsider rapporterar att länkar för att köpa boken från Apples hemsida inte längre fungerar, och att söka efter boken på Apple Store på webben eller i företagets Apple Store-app inte heller är möjligt.I svenska Apple Store finns dock boken kvar och i lager i dess båda storlekar, men frågan är hur länge till.

Amazon is running a $200 discount on the 13-inch model with Touch Bar and 256GB internal storage.An additional $50 off applies upon approval for the Amazon Rewards Visa card, bringing the final sale price to $1,549.Its design has always been subtle – which sometimes draws the accusation of being safe or boring – but it remains as the most luxurious laptop around.This 13-inch variant is not the smallest nor the lightest, but it’s compact enough to bring around with you.The big bonus, however, is the Touch Bar along the top of the keyboard, which can adapt to what you’re doing and gives you app controls and shortcuts whenever you need them.It also supports P3 wide color for even more vibrant hues, and features bright LED backlighting and a high contrast ratio for deep blacks and bright whites.

UK mobile operator EE has issued a formal complaint to the advertising watchdog about rival Three over its ‘real 5G’ marketing.Three has been advertising that it’s the only UK mobile operator to offer “real” 5G in newspapers and social media posts.Three has scooped up 140MHz of 5G-friendly spectrum, including a single 100MHz contiguous block, which it claims will offer peak speeds up to twice as fast as any rival network at launch.Global 5G standards body the ITU states ‘true’ 5G requires 100MHz of 5G spectrum; which is why Three has been making the claim of superiority over its rivals in its marketing.“5G is a game-changer for Three, and of course I am excited that we will be the only operator in the UK who can offer true 5G,” said Three CEO Dave Dyson in June.Where EE could have grounds for its watchdog complaint is that Three’s 5G network is relatively untested due to a limited rollout.

One of Huawei’s biggest challenges in light of the US blacklisting is its ability to stand on its own, even without US technologies.One of the key pieces is the silicon that drives its smartphones in the form of HiSilicon Kirin processors.Huawei has been advertising the capabilities of its latest Kirin chips, pitting them against the likes of Qualcomm’s Snapdragons, but it might be only with the Kirin 990 that the company will finally catch up with one of the trends in the mobile market: 4K video recording.To be fair to Huawei, it may have been the first to introduce the idea of a dedicated Neural Processing Unit or NPU in mobile processors, launching it in the Kirin 970 for the Huawei Mate 10 in 2017.The idea behind an NPU is to offload AI-related processes onto the dedicated chip to minimize waking up the main CPU.Within the past two years, Huawei has been boasting about the performance of its Kirin chips, especially with benchmarks.

A new survey from Slack has revealed that millions of employees are “unaligned” and this puts them at odds with their organization's strategy, vision and operating principles.To compile its new “State of Work Report” the company behind the popular online collaboration tool worked together with the market research firm GlobalWebIndex (GWI) to survey 17,000 global knowledge workers, managers and executives.Slack wanted to learn more about their experiences in the modern workforce and did so by asking them what do aligned workers look like, why does having aligned workers matter and how do companies attract and retain aligned workers.The report found that 1 in 10 global knowledge workers believe they are “unaligned” while 15 percent of UK workers believe they are completely unaligned with their organization's mission.Slack's research discovered that only 34 percent of unaligned workers believe their organization's teams are working toward a shared vision.Of the unaligned workers surveyed, 70 percent either “agree” or “strongly agree” that they would like to feel more aligned with their company's vision, values and operating principles.

Virtual private networks (VPNs) have traditionally handled the protection of data in transit, particularly on the wide area network (WAN) links that most enterprises use to provide employees with access to the web and other corporate sites and resources.The flexibility to combine multiple network transport technologies – multi-protocol label switched (MPLS), leased line, Ethernet, fibre broadband, digital subscriber line (DSL), cellular 3G/4G and/or Wi-Fi – is another key attraction for organisations, particularly those that need to securely connect multiple sites with different types of connectivity, either to each other, the internet, a centralised company headquarters or the cloud.Lack of familiarity with virtual networking can also be a problem in some environments, where the old way of provisioning and maintaining WAN connectivity using dedicated hardware continue is considered less complex and easier to understand.IDC’s Software-Defined WAN Survey published in April this year estimates that 95 per cent of enterprises expect to use the technology within the next two years, with almost 40 per cent having already deployed it in some form.Compared to VPN, SD-WAN represents a simplified and cost-effective way to WAN, and that is important because most enterprise hate their WANs,” wrote Andrew Lerner, research vice president at Gartner.Rather than having separate IPSec hardware or SSL clients to handle network security, SD-WAN systems effectively package the same type of VPN functionality into a single virtual security stack that can also include firewall, web content filtering, deep packet inspection, access controls etc alongside authentication and encryption.

That's how I'd describe the Brother HL-L2395DW, a compact monochrome laser printer that also scans and copies.It normally sells for $169.99, but for a limited time, Amazon once again has the Brother HL-L2395DW for $99.99.If you miss out, don't fret: This is at least the seventh time in the past year it's gone on sale for that price.(Note that CNET may get a share of revenue from the sale of the products featured on this page.)This is a decidedly modern printer, with a touchscreen interface, auto-duplexer (for double-sided printing) and support for mobile devices and cloud-printing.That's a convenience, though my excitement is mitigated by the printer's sole imperfection: It lacks an automatic document feeder (ADF).

That was the situation facing the Princeton biologists who are building microtubules, the skeleton of the cell, from scratch.In that time, her team had painstakingly determined the fireworks' components, one protein at a time, and graduate student Akanksha Thawani had come up with a model for the sequence, but testing it seemed impossible.But then the journal's reviewers told them they couldn't publish their model unless they proved it experimentally."Admittedly, after watching Akanksha work on this so long, when the referee asked for more work, I was skeptical that we could sort out the order of molecular attachments in any reasonable time," said Howard Stone, Princeton's Donald R. Dixon '69 and Elizabeth W. Dixon Professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering and Thawani's co-adviser.It was stunning to follow her detective work."The results of their work appear in the journal eLife.

House of Marley has always put a special emphasis on using materials in its products that leave a small environmental footprint.And while no electronic products can be said to be genuinely environmentally friendly, some are clearly much friendlier than others.Such is the case with the company’s latest headphones, the $150 truly wireless Liberate Air earbuds, which the company previewed at CES 2019.The Liberate Air (which we are testing right now for a soon-to-be-published review), offer the kinds of features that are now becoming standard on true wireless earbuds, like a long, nine-hour battery life, a charging case that extends this playtime to 32 hours total, and touch-sensitive controls for play/pause, track skipping, and answering calls.They’re also compatible with both Siri and Google Assistant, either of which can be summoned via a tap on an earbud.However, it’s House of Marley’s extensive use of bamboo, recycled plastic, and recyclable aluminum that help the Liberate Air stand out from the increasingly large true wireless earbud crowd.

They spread misinformation across social media platforms and attempted to infiltrate voting machines.Earlier this year, the director of national intelligence, Dan Coats, gave a similar warning: “Despite growing awareness of cyber threats and improving cyber defenses, nearly all information, communication networks, and systems will be at risk for years to come.”But despite the string of warnings, Congress has yet to take any meaningful action to address the threat.A number of lawmakers have sponsored legislation to help secure the 2020 elections, including measures focusing on online political ads, paper ballots, and voting machine security.One would have authorized $775 million to go to states in preparation of 2020 and require them to create paper trails of votes.“Mueller’s testimony should be a wake-up call to every American, Democrat, Republican, Liberal, Conservative, that the integrity of our elections is at stake.”

"Screenome" is a play on the word "genome," which refers to the unique set of genetic material that every living organism contains.In other words, the screenome refers to your unique collection of screens that you see on an hourly, daily, weekly and yearly basis, ultimately culminating in the collection of screens you see over your entire lifespan.Nilam Ram, one of the researchers who worked on the Screenomics paper, told CNET that the distinction between simply viewing screens and interacting with them has pretty much disappeared.Because most modern screens facilitate interactivity, the two are equally important and screenomics covers all of both categories by capturing "channel switching, swiping, zooming and navigating," Ram said.To get a visual snippet of a screenome, think back to what you used your phone or computer for during breakfast this morning.You can navigate through an incredible amount of content in less than a minute -- think about how much you swipe through and scroll past in the matter of a year.
