At this point, AR headsets still need to be wired to a computer. Wireless VR and mixed-reality headsets are just becoming available, most notably the Oculus Go, Lenovo's Google-powered Mirage Solo and the Windows Mixed Reality crew. There are a host of AR headsets in development, or rumored to be in development, from companies like Apple and Samsung and the Magic Leap One. Of course, Google's most notable competitor in the AR arena is probably the Microsoft HoloLens, which is predominantly used for commercial applications. Between Bose, Sony and now Apple AirPods Pro, active noise-canceling headphones are all the rage. And now, we're seeing an old favorite from Sennheiser that's currently just at Amazon -- down from 0. We reviewed the nearly identical Sennheiser HD 4.50 BTNC two years ago, and found it to be a formidable Bose competitor at that 0 price. That model is down to 8 on Amazon, but this model -- the HD 4.50 SE -- has literally the exact same specs, aside from some cosmetic color differences.
More important than the way my system is set up is what I do with it. I have configured my computer system at work so that along with whatever stories I’m dealing with, the big extra monitor shows me a stream of photos of my grandkids, my children and my folks.

“Say a guy hits a ground ball to short and they throw it back to me from first base — as soon as I grab the ball, I’m running my thumb over these,” Mussina says. He is holding a ball and referring to the white area within the horseshoe. “Do I have a sinker out of this ball? And if I find one I think’s pretty good, I flip it to the other side to see if it’s scuffed up on the wrong side.” Smart speakers are so much more than on-demand jukeboxes though. They control your lights, help organize your calendar, dictate recipes while you cook or help you load up the latest season of "Black Mirror." They're a lot more "fun" than a simple remote control, and not only that but they're also more featured and getting better all the time.

AMG boss Tobias Moers confirmed to Autocar on Tuesday that the company had been having trouble getting its F1-based, stratospherically-revving 1.6-liter turbo six-cylinder engine to meet targets without dropping below the One's advertised 1,000-horsepower rating.
"We did some subtle behind-the-scenes work on his armor without destroying the visual effect of the rigidity of the armor," Aitken says. Amazon's Ring has been the source of much controversy this year given its Big Brother-tinged efforts to put footage from its Ring video doorbell and outdoor security cameras into the hands of law enforcement, and without sufficient input from owners of the video doorbell or those caught on camera.

The Winbot X, however, is the first to run on battery power during its entire cleaning cycle. Current machines such as the Winbot 950 and Winbot 850 can switch to an internal battery.

____ I'm getting ahead of myself. Let's first get into the numbers. The Schiit website claims, "Aegir uses an exotic current-feedback topology, as well as a 100 percent linear power supply (with 7 separate voltage rails and 600VA transformer) and microprocessor oversight to eliminate capacitors and DC servos in the signal path." That's tech speak for a rather advanced design not typically seen in such an affordable amp. Easier to understand numbers include power ratings of 20 watts per channel into 8 ohms, doubling to 40 watts per channel into 4 ohms. For 4 or 8 ohm speakers, the Aegir's first 10 watts per channel are pure Class A watts, from 10 to 20 watts Schiit describes the power as "Class A like" watts. Meaning they don't conform to the strict definition of Class A designs. I have no way to verify any of that, but I will say the Aegir is the best sounding Schiit product I've tested.

As Cara Hoffman noted in The New York Times in 2014, “stories about female veterans are nearly absent from our culture. It’s not that their stories are poorly told. It’s that their stories are simply not told in our literature, film and popular culture.” In the ancient tales, women do crop up as both the causes and trophies of conflict (Helen, Briseis). In recent narratives, they mostly appear as refugees and casualties. In war stories both old and new, women are nurses to the wounded, and the victims of rape — war’s unbanishable shadow. Rarely are they depicted as warriors. Is that a profound truth or a blind spot? Just sit back and relax, you'll laugh 'til you collapse. Or at least that's what the "Animaniacs" theme song always promised.

Brazilian cuisine leans heavily on meat and seafood, so it’s a pleasure to find vegetarian food that’s neither fried nor boring. Naturalie is open only for lunch, and its menu (much of it vegan and gluten-free) makes good use of local produce like manioc and coconut. Salads come with a bright pink beet dressing; there’s a rich stew known as feijoada that replaces meat with tofu; and fresh juices are crammed with passion fruit, hibiscus and goji berries, and — unlike their lunch-counter counterparts — they aren’t full of added sugar. It’s carefully considered, unfussy dining that just happens to be vegetarian. Lunch for two, around 100 reais, or about . For years, the tech community has pushed for immigration-friendly policies.

Turo, a peer-to-peer car sharing startup, announced on Monday that it has partnered with Smartcar to put its system to use as part of the rental process.

Instead of that, Smartcar's system uses renters' phones to wirelessly locate, lock and unlock cars without the need for the "hosts," as Turo calls them, to be present.

Schedule a Trip“‘Game of Thrones’ was initially built on a premise of subverting established high fantasy tropes, and surely one of the most innate fantasy tropes of all involves the idea that only men are fit to rule,” Aja Romano wrote at Vox. “After a final season that saw two powerful queens reduced, respectively, to going mad and dying whimpering in a cave collapse, the show’s choice to place the future stability of Westeros on a bunch of male shoulders feels deeply regressive and thoughtless.” Virtual Reality 101: How VR will change your life.
The problem stems from the instrument panel. According to the report filed with NHTSA, a supplier error during a lamination process resulted in panels containing adhesive not specified for the intended purpose. This creates the possibility that the cover over the passenger front airbag might not work as intended in a crash, potentially hindering airbag deployment and increasing the risk of injury. Trump is also good for Twitter's business. Earlier this year, the company acknowledged a "Trump bump" that boosted the platform to 328 million monthly users (it's now at 330 million).
