Weekend tech reading: MacBook trade-ins get until $650 from surface, intros Mozilla Firefox get quantum


Up to $650 a Surface Pro or surface book trade – a MacBook yesterday, we led the world to the newest members of the surface family, including the surface of Studio-a new class of device that turns your desktop into a Creative Studio. Today we are in time a limited “trade” offer more people get to know surface load announced. Starting today, everyone in the United States in its MacBook Pro can or MacBook Air at a Microsoft store or online for up to $650 surface book or Surface Pro Act.

A quantum leap for the Web in the past year, our top priority for Firefox was the electrolysis project, to provide a multi-process-browsing experience for users. Use of Firefox in multiple processes greatly improved security and performance. This is the biggest change that we’ve made to Firefox, and we are 100% desktop Firefox users in the next few months his roll-out of the first stage of the electrolysis. But that doesn’t mean that we all are to improve the ideas in terms of performance and safety. In fact, electrolysis has just set us something that we think will be really great. Medium

Internet Archive, collection of modern culture turns 20 , as the Internet Archive was created 20 years ago, only a few presented how a small Galaxy about would develop 500,000 Web sites at the Centre of human communication and culture. Now, the nonprofit San Francisco–which celebrated the milestone with a party Wednesday evening-curated a large digital archive, which includes more than 370 million websites and 273 billion pages, many taken prisoner, before they disappeared forever.

Google’s AI created his own form of encryption researchers from the Google brain deep learning project have already taught, AI systems, to make trippy art, but now they’re moving on to something potentially darker: AI-generated, human independent encryption. According to a new research work, Googlers Martín Abadi and David G. Andersen could readily three Probanden–neural networks named Alice, Bob, and Eve –past each other using an encryption process itself prepared notes. Engadget

This guy has the fastest Internet of from home in the United States which use his jealousy triggering bandwidth does the guy with the fastest Internet in the United States for? Get analysis X-ray… and of course an advantage in call of duty. System startup and community-run Internet service provider have headlines in the last two years roll-out of the first 10 Gigabit per second residential Internet connections in the United States grabbed, as they have started,.

Researchers at North Carolina State University break the congestion of multi-core and Intel have come modern microprocessor with a solution to one of the most intractable problems: many cores is communication between the processor. Their answer is a dedicated group of logical circuits they call the queue management device or QMD. In simulations integration of QMD with the processor chip network to a minimum core-core communication speed doubled, and in some cases, it strengthens much further. IEEE Spectrum

Energy make revolutionary reliably A harvesting machine, and emerging class energy harvesting computer systems require to operate either a battery or a power outlet, instead by the harvesting of energy from their surroundings work. While radio waves, solar energy, heat and vibrations which the power supply of the devices have possibility of harvested energy sources are weak “intermittent version”, with regular power outages and unreliable behavior leads to a.

Star citizen diary, part 2: riding shotgun in the game’s largest ship let me to the important stuff first the question of everyone’s head have been in, since I last week my first Star Citizen diary written: I made the purchase a new GAP wind? I did. A blue one. Also a blue jacket, a blue shirt and blue pants. I have a bit of buyer’s remorse because I probably instead should have saved my Spacebux for a new space suit, or perhaps for an energy gun. PC gamer (part 1)

Gaming is past and future want to see? Immerse into the world of “educational” of PLATO in the days of mainframe computing, a system and miles ahead of the rest. PLATO (programmed logic for automated teaching) was not specifically for his power or speed or graphical skills. It was notable for the ideas that drove its development and the width of its Auswirkungen–in the 1960s starting and accelerating through the 70s and 80s, PLATO terminals became ubiquitous in schools, colleges and offices around the world.

Congress needs more information before the new hacker Government the Federal Government kick to get solid powers hacker in powers expanded this year. Thank goodness members of Congress start to ask questions. In a letter 23 members of the Kongresses–including Sens. Ron Wyden and Patrick Leahy and Rep John Conyers–pressed for more information and “are this week’s U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch, they have the full range of the new authority” under pending changes to said FBI rules.

New method increases the energy density of lithium batteries Yuan Yang, Assistant Professor of materials science and engineering at Columbia engineering, has developed a new method to increase the energy density of lithium (Li-ion) batteries. He has rebuilt a Trilayer structure stable even in the air, causing longer-lasting battery and cheaper in manufacturing. The work, which can improve the energy density of lithium batteries by 10-30%, is published in Nano letters online today. Columbia University

7,500 people get texts call for info at Frederick John Hatch murder, OPP say in a motion, which describe them, are “extraordinary” and “unprecedented” Ontario provincial police sends SMS messages to approximately 7,500 people on Thursday, asking for information about an unsolved murder. Investigators called it a “digital canvas” – the high-tech equivalent to knock on thousands of doors for information. CBC

Pizza that it was unsung agent of the robot revolution not so long ago that the idea of the Biped, or four-legged robot delivers pizza seemed like a real possibility. Such speculation has been fueled by Google’s acquisition of Boston Dynamics–a company more military applications, the notoriety for his shockingly agile big dog robot deserves to be assigned.
