Amazon’s New Alexa Devices Include Rings, Glasses, and Smart Ovens

Amazon introduced 8 new Echo devices, and the company made its debut into wearable technology. The list includes the Echo Buds, Echo Studio, Echo Show 8, Echo Frames, Echo Dot with Clock, Echo Glow, a Ring Indoor Cam, an Echo Loop ring, Echo Flex, and an Alexa Smart Oven. The new line also includes updates to eero routers, Ring cams, and the Echo Dots. All of these devices incorporate Alexa, Amazon’s voice-controlled helper that can do everything from telling you the weather to turning on your lights, and order you more shampoo. Starting with the updates, the new Amazon Echo now features an updated fabric design and offers even better sound than before. Even with the new updates, the upgraded Echo still only costs $99. You can choose between Twilight Blue, Charcoal, Heather Grey, and Sandstone. You can find the newer Echo Speaker right here on Amazon. Amazon also improved the cheaper Echo Dot, and introduced The Echo Dot with LED clock display. Now you can use it as both an Echo and a clock on your nightstand. That model costs $59, but if you rather have a nightlight for the little ones instead of a clock, the Echo Glow costs $29. The LED display on the Echo Clock model automati...

Piston Slap: Single DIN + Multiple Options = Serious Improvement for Cheap?

In your suggested fixes to a 200,000-mile BMW, you mentioned better aftermarket radios. That got me interested! I’m buying a 1989 Porsche 944 turbo with about 10 problems and the radio ain’t one. (The price? 6,500 Canuckian pesos!) As I fix it up for my own long-term use, however, I want to understand the options and the pros and cons of replacing the “meh” Kenwood unit that one of the nine (!) previous owners put in there. Can you do a kind of buyer’s guide for aftermarket radios with Bluetooth capabilities and/or smartphone integration? Currently I use Waze on my phone, which is clipped to the air vents with a small Kenu phone mount, and an aux cable. It works fine; I’d like to have fewer cables and better power to the phone, but this is a frivolous and fun upgrade for me. Maybe a low-cost option and an “all the features” option would be two options for most. I don’t do buyer’s guides in the expected SEO style, instead doling out thoughts with non-affiliate linked URLs when needed. Hopefully the photo of my 1989 Continental proves my editorial independence regarding classic car smartphone integration: the outdated, 1st gen iPad Mini and Kenwood Excelon came together swim...

Roborock S4 robot vacuum review: Updated design takes on obstacles as it thoroughly cleans Review

By Matthew Miller for The Mobile Gadgeteer | September 24, 2019 — 12:21 GMT (20:21 GMT+08:00) | Topic: Mobility After trying out a few robot vacuums and experiencing frustrations with reliability, I found the Roborock lineup that has been knocking it out of the park for a year. However, mopping with water was a function I never used beyond initial testing so I’m very pleased to see the new Roborock S4 leave that function behind while coming in at a reasonable $400 price point. It’s easy to find a great phone today. In fact, current flagship devices are so good you really don’t need to be replacing them every year. The Roborock S5 and Roborock S6 are fantastic robot vacuums that I highly recommend for their speed, smartphone connectivity, thorough cleaning, and reliability to perform their intended function. However, I clean my awesome acacia wood floors with Bona and only used the water tank mopping feature on those vacuums for testing. Do others actually only mop their floors with water? The new Roborock S4 is now available on Amazon for $399.99 and brings all of the amazing functionality we saw on these earlier S6 and S5 models with mopping capability ...

It Was Just a Kayaking Trip. Until It Upended Our Lives.

A weeklong trip in Alaska was supposed to be an adventure. In an instant, it became the experience that defined us all. A weeklong trip in Alaska was supposed to be an adventure. In an instant, it became the experience that defined us all. The whale sighting happened right away, minutes into Day 1. Jon, Dave and I had just been dropped off on a remote Alaskan shoreline, an hour and a half by boat from the closest speck of a town. Jon was working as a sea-kayaking guide that summer in Glacier Bay National Park, and he had invited us up for a seven-day excursion during his week off. As the boat that delivered us vanished, the drone of its engine dampening into a murmur and then finally trailing off, it became unthinkably quiet on the beach, and the largeness and strangeness of our surroundings were suddenly apparent. It was a familiar phenomenon for Jon from the start of all his trips: a moment that people instinctually paused to soak in. To me, it felt like those scenes of astronauts who, having finally rattled free of the earth’s atmosphere, slip into the stillness of space. Except we weren’t in space. We were on earth — finally, really on earth. We were only starting to move a...

Covers machine learning for predictive analytics, explains setting up training and testing data, and offers machine learning model snippets. Covers machine learning for predictive analytics, explains setting up training and testing data, and offers machine learning model snippets. Predictive Analytics is about predicting future outcome based on analyzing data collected previously. It includes two phases: We can choose many models, each based on a set of different assumptions regarding the underlying distribution of data. Therefore, we are interested in two general types of problems in this discussion: 1. Classification—about predicting a category (a value that is discrete, finite with no ordering implied), and 2. Regression—about predicting a numeric quantity (a value that’s continuous and infinite with ordering). For classification problems, we use the “iris” data set and predict its “species” from its “width” and “length” measures of sepals and petals. Here is how we set up our training and testing data: To illustrate a regression problem (where the output we predict is a numeric quantity), we’ll use the “Prest...

Hong Kong riot police curb airport protest after clashes

HONG KONG (Reuters) – Hong Kong police stormed a shopping mall where pro-democracy activists had taken their protest, chanting “fight for freedom” and “liberate Hong Kong” after activists trashed fittings at the rail station next door. Hundreds of protesters, young and old, gathered in the mall in the New Territories town of Sha Tin, chanting: “Hong Kong people, add oil”, loosely translated as “keep your strength up”. Protesters also called for a boycott of businesses seen as pro-Beijing and made a paper chain of receipts from those stores, which were then hung across the mall. Protesters rounded on a man believed to have opposed them when they had damaged the Chinese flag. Shouting, they pushed him into a corner beside the station and cheered as crowds punched and kicked him. After 20 minutes, he managed to walk away, dazed and bleeding from the forehead. Protesters also smashed video cameras and ticket booths in the station. Violence has hit parts of the former British colony at different times over more than three months, but life goes on as normal for most people most of the time. However, pictures of petrol bombs and str...

Today in Lab History highlights famous inventors, companies and discoveries on representative days for their important

Today in Lab History highlights famous inventors, companies and discoveries on representative days for their important contributions to the world of laboratory equipment. An ordinance was passed on June 19, 1816 to allow the Gas Light Company of Baltimore to lay pipes in the city of Baltimore for gas-powered streetlights. Baltimore was the first city to allow it so broadly. London had some gaslights but not the systemic, city-wide version Baltimore was embracing. The first public gas street light was lit on February 7, 1817.  It is possible that the city was inspired by the artist Rembrandt Peale’s museum. The museum was lit with elaborate gaslights. The lighting was as much part of the exhibition as the paintings he created. Peale owned a patent on gaslights and was one of the founders of the Gas Light Company of Baltimore, the first gas company in America. In 1820, Jacob Cohen Jr.’s house was fitted with gas lights, becoming the first privately owned house in the city to have it. However, after many years of operating, in 1846, the company had still only four gasometers, capable of holding one hundred and forty thousand cubic feet of gas. But, later that year, they erected one...

Entertaining under the stars this summer? Here’s your guide to green heating for the patio

Kya deLongchamps explores taking a more sustainable approach to outdoor heating for the summer months. IT’S IRELAND, not Malaga. No matter what hacienda touches you tickle together around the patio, come dusk, that Celtic chill can freeze out the enjoyment of entertaining under the stars. If wrapping up in blankets and pulling on a sweater doesn’t suit, you could add some dedicated heat to the party. It’s astonishing in these environmentally sensitive times that gas-fuelled patio heaters are even available to buy. Fast, practical and heating a wide area beneath the burner, they have been described by Friends of the Earth as “gratuitously damaging” to outright “planet wrecking”. Their use surged in the mid-Noughties in both commercial pub and restaurant settings due to their snap-to convenience and relatively toasty conditions. Gas patio heaters are highly emissive. A 12.5kW heater will produce almost 35kg of CO2 before the fuel runs out, and a standard propane patio cylinder runs out fast, in 10-13 hours (Energy Savings Trust). They are not only carbon engines, but are wildly expensive to use compared to wood or infrared (IR) electric. You could run your kitchen gas hob for six ...
