Volkswagen AG plans to save 1 million tons of carbon-dioxide emissions a year by making production of its first electric model carbon neutral, part of an effort to clean up its image in the aftermath of the diesel-cheating scandal.
Since December, Indian policymakers have taken a page from China’s playbook, enacting sweeping restrictions in an attempt to curtail the power of ecommerce behemoths like Amazon, and pushing proposals that would require internet companies to censor “unlawful” content, break user encryption, and forbid Indian data from being stored on foreign soil.
Sony After just a couple months on the market, Sony's PlayStation Classic has fallen to a more reasonable price. Retro Fun and Frustration I didn't write a full review of the PlayStation Classic last fall, but I did spend a good amount of time with it.
The new Air is a lot like the new MacBook Pro models, with a sharp, 13-inch Retina display, a responsive trackpad, an improved butterfly keyboard (with a dust shield), surprisingly potent speakers, and two USB-C/Thunderbolt 3 ports for charging and hooking up peripherals.
Meet the Motos Lenovo-owned Motorola unveiled four new Moto G phones today: the flagship Moto G7 and G7 Plus, the more affordable Moto G7 Play, and the one with the three-day battery, the Moto G7 Power.
The record-setting project involved the world’s most powerful supercomputer, Summit, at Oak Ridge National Lab. The machine captured that crown in June last year, reclaiming the title for the US after five years of China topping the list.
To boost and sustain its energy supply, India needs urgent investments and reforms to fix the inefficiencies that plague its entire electricity supply chain.

“You don’t have as much power when you want to discharge,” says Stefanopoulou, “The situation is even more limited when you want to charge.” Modern cars are designed to take that into account, with battery thermal management systems that warm or cool a battery.
If I use a gravitational field of 10 Newtons per kilogram (it's actually about 9.8 N/kg), the change in potential energy would be 10 Joules. So how do you calculate the mass and height for the change in gravitational potential energy?
Even the few electric cars at the Detroit show are SUVs. Infiniti is showing the QX Inspiration Concept, a swoopy crossover, it calls a look at its fully-electrified future.
(PG&E declined to comment for this story, pointing instead to a press release that says it will “make investments in system safety as it works with regulators, policymakers and other key stakeholders to consider a range of alternatives to provide for the safe delivery of natural gas and electric service for the long-term in an environment that continues to be challenged by climate change.”) Utilities know full well how to manage their risk.
Unlike so many hulking, entirely American pony cars, this Mustang will look as good in the turns as on the straights. Translation: Unlike so many hulking, entirely American pony cars, this Mustang will look as good in the turns as on the straights.
But earlier this month came news of a potential game changer, from no less a tech luminary than Bill Joy. A long-time investor in clean tech—for years he was involved in venture capital firm Kleiner Perkins’ ill-fated foray into “green” funding—Joy is now serving on the board of Ionic Materials , a battery-tech company in which he has invested.
Thus when a 29-year-old former bartender of Puerto Rican descent beats a senior Democratic leader of the House, and then proceeds to set the political agenda during her first week in office, it’s more than a cute social media story.
That industry is based on the idea that quiet, efficient, and safe air taxis (aka flying cars) with electric power and high-tech control systems will allow safe operation by either computers or human pilots with minimal specialized training.
Blockchain Can Wrest the Internet From Corporations' Grasp La Tigre As the internet has evolved over its 35-year lifespan, control over its most important services has gradually shifted from open source protocols maintained by non-profit communities to proprietary services operated by large tech companies.
“The idea is with three legs on the ground, it's always statically stable,” says Wyss roboticist Neel Doshi, coauthor on a Science Robotics paper describing HAMR’s new power.About that static: Think of the robot as sticking to the surface like a magnet, only the forces here are electric.
With the E-tron, Audi Shows What an Electric SUV Can BeAudi’s designers speckled some flashy trim on the exterior to signify the E-tron’s EV status, but nothing too edgy: This SUV is meant to be a functional car people will actually want to buy when it goes on sale in early 2019, not just a statement.AudiMasdar City, a squeaky-clean planned city under development outside Abu Dhabi, grew from the sand with a single vision: help the United Arab Emirates wean itself off its own vast oil reserves.
Poor transmission contributed to 29 percent of the electricity shortfall in fiscal year 2015, while weak infrastructure, faulty metering and theft cause the loss of almost a fifth of generated electricity.As such, power sector reforms should be a top priority for Pakistan can yield huge economic gains toward a more sustainable future.
Lee didn’t invent the comic book superhero; that’s usually credited to Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, a couple of Jewish kids from Cleveland who alchemized religious imagery, science fiction, and urban crime-busting into a hero who, rocketed to Earth as an infant, gained powers and abilities far beyond those of mortal men to fight a never-ending battle for truth and justice.That was Superman, of course, who came first in 1938.
“And also you can pack different kinds of transistors; if you want to put a 5G radio right on top of a CPU, solving the stacking problem would be great, because you have all of your functionality but also a small form factor.”"Now, we can take processes that are best for the function and put them all together on a single package."Raja Koduri, IntelThe rest of the industry has already glommed onto the benefits of mixing and matching transistors, investing in “chiplets” that can be used almost like microscopic interlocking puzzle pieces.
UPS Tries Delivery Tricycles As Seattle's Traffic Doom LoomsUPS's electric tricycle is good for up to 18 miles of range, and is now delivering packages in parts of Seattle where driving no longer makes sense.United Parcel ServicePushing the cargo bike across a rain-soaked parking lot at a UPS distribution center in Seattle, where the shipper showed off its newest delivery vehicle, I had a realization once the pedal assist kicked in.
That’s going to require every nation to make changes, as well as individual cities, states and businesses.“It will require things that are more aggressive, like shutting down existing power plants and by 2030, we probably need to reduce global coal power production by 70 or 80 percent,” says Nathan Hultman, director of the Center for Global Sustainability at the University of Maryland.Hultman, who worked on climate issues in the Obama White House, says the solutions may be politically impossible for now.
I've spent many nights in my own basement or a hotel room waxing and polishing skis to gain a bit of speed on the hill, and took a certain pride in my labor (even if the results were fleeting).I tested Phantom-treated demo skis last March in high-mountain Utah, and again for two days on Thanksgiving weekend in Vermont.
