Lyft introduces pink-wheeled scooter that it says is better for scooter sharing

Lyft is introducing its first scooter model built specifically for scooter sharing. It’s meant to be more durable, with a longer battery life and bike-like brakes. The scooters are available in Denver, the first place Lyft rolled out its scooters last year. The new hand brake, on the left handlebar, is much like the ones on bikes, and will stop both wheels if pulled. The new frame, made by Segway, doesn’t fold, which Lyft says makes it sturdier; the company also said the scooter’s base is 20 percent wider, clocking in at 6.2 inches.The new batteries will hold a charge for about 35 to 40 miles. Earlier this week, Uber also announced a more-rugged scooter at its Elevate conference, and …

Intel’s NUC Compute Elements hopes to make laptops modular

Stop us if you’ve heard this one before: Imagine buying an ultrabook laptop or all-in-one PC that could be one day be easily have its guts swapped out for a faster CPU, faster RAM and faster SSD. If that sounds faintly like Intel’s failed Compute Card imitative from 2017, it is kinda. But when we talked to Intel officials recently at Computex in Taipei, they claimed to have thought about what made Compute Card fizzle and addressed it. While the previous version was limited to 5-watt Y-class CPUs, the new NUC Compute Elements can run 15-watt U-class chips. Part of that is helped by the design of the NUC Compute Elements, which uses the backside as a giant heat sink. …

The Pixel 4 is shaping up to be a Huawei Mate 20 Pro by Google

When Google announced its new interface gestures in Android Q, I got a sense of déjà vu, because I’d already seen them in Huawei’s EMUI. And when Google candidly revealed the rear of its upcoming Pixel 4 phone last night, I was again reminded of a Huawei product, this time the Mate 20 Pro of last year, which had the same square camera module filled with lenses. Combining the two together, I can’t help but feel that the stuff Google is cooking up for us in late 2019 will be a retread of what Huawei already delivered a year earlier. That’s not a knock on Google, but a sense of appreciation for how far ahead Huawei has been. China’s leading …

Byton’s massive 48-inch dashboard screen will also be used in its electric SUV

Byton was the darling of CES last year, showing off its never-ending dashboard screen and other touchscreens on practically every surface of the Chinese’s company first all-electric car, the M-Byte. Now we know that nearly all designs from the prototype car will actually be made, including that massive 48-inch end-to-end screen up front. This week Byton showed an interior glimpse into the final design of the cars as the first electric SUVs are made in China. The $45,000-starting-price car will make it to the U.S. after China by the end of 2020. The car will will feature the 48-inch gesture-controlled screen with Alexa (and Baidu) capabilities.  Read more… More about Electric Vehicles, Screens, Byton, Tech, and Transportation Read more: mashable.com

Skip the Lakes and see the Cumbrian coast – without a car

Of the millions who visit the Lake District every year, very few check out its dramatic coastline, so our writer has its beaches and wild dunes almost to herself The air smells of seaweed and woodsmoke as I step on to the platform at Ravenglass. The salt marsh nearby has galaxies of pale pink thrift flowers, the River Esk glitters in the evening light, and a waterside path heads off towards distant fells. As a fan of walking, Wordsworth and sticky toffee pudding, I’ve had many memorable holidays in the Lake District over the decades. But, like most of the other 16 million visitors a year, I’ve rarely visited the Cumbrian coast. I’d arrived in Lancaster 150 minutes after leaving …

These Lightweight Carry-On Suitcases Are Exactly What Your Summer Travels Require

There’s enough to worry about when we travel, but having to pay attention to how much your suitcase weighs brings on a whole new level of stress. Especially on smaller planes and when traveling through Europe, many airlines will even weigh your carry-on, which is precisely how I ended up having trouble breathing in the Venice airport with a full day of traveling ahead. If the idea of checking your bag also gives you heart palpitations, you need to make sure you get a light carry-on suitcase. These 14 pieces of luggage all weigh less than 9 pounds, which means more space for extra outfits, toiletries, and anything else you might need. Plus, if you end up having to run …

Overweight Mom Shrinks Waist By 5 Inches Thanks To This Unusual Audio

#1 Reason Hypnosis For Weight Loss FAILS…(And What To Do Instead) Hi, my name’s Sarah. I’m a 42 year old stay at home mom living in Kentucky. Recently, my friend told me about this weird little fat loss method she read about in a woman’s magazine. When she told me what it was, I was very skeptical. I mean… How many times have we been told about a new ‘miracle’ method that can help you ‘drop a dress size’? Ugh. If you’re anything like me, you’ve tried everything under the sun–fad diets, ab crunches, eating nothing but popcorn (yeah I got that one from Madonna!) But this method is something else. I’m living proof of that, and so are these …

Willo is a robot that wants to replace your toothbrush

If you think about it, the basic concept of a toothbrush hasn’t evolved since… forever. Sure, many people have switched to an electric toothbrush, but it remains a stick with a brush at the end. Willo thinks that’s not good enough. The company has developed an oral care device to improve brushing with a focus on plaque. The company says that basic brushing only cleans 42 percent of dental plaque, while electric brushes clean 46 percent of dental plaque. The startup has worked with actual dentists to design its product. It still sounds a bit mysterious as the company isn’t sharing much about the product. The photo is the only image of the product right now. But what we know …

Found Leaves with Delicate Crochet Embellishments by Susanna Bauer

“Everything That Surrounds Us” In her series of sewn together and crocheted leaves and twigs, Susanna Bauer (previously) considers the fragility of nature and humans’ inextricable tie to its survival. The Cornwall, England-based artist combines the found elements with fine cotton thread to produce unique objects steeped in the history of craft. Intimate marks add detail to small patches or the complete outline of browned leaves, drawing our attention the natural growth pattens found in their interior. A selection of her free-standing and framed sculptures are currently on view with Le Salon Vert at VOLTA Basel in Switzerland through June 15, 2019. You can view more of Bauer’s works formed from leaves, thread, and twigs on her website and Instagram. …

Running Compressed Air Lines in a Shop

Choosing the right pipe First of all, don’t use PVC pipe. If it breaks under pressure, the plastic will shatter and send pieces flying like shrapnel. Use copper instead. It’s available at most hardware stores and home centers. Solder it using the same fittings as you would for water supply lines. If you don’t want to solder, use galvanized or black steel pipe. Measure the pipe runs and buy exact lengths; hardware stores will cut and thread the ends for you. Unlike gas and water lines, air compression lines don’t require perfect joints, so don’t worry if they leak a tiny bit.

Firefox’s new logo has more fire, less fox

They warned us that it was coming, and now it’s here: Mozilla took the wraps off its new logo for the storied Firefox web browser today. But before you say “What did they do to that poor fox!” know that the logo you see above actually isn’t the browser logo — that’s the brand-new overarching logo for Mozilla’s whole family of Firefox products, with each component (including the browser) having its own logo, too. Here: See? Fox is alive and well… if a little ethereal. The logo also looks a little like a world on fire, which many of us can easily identify with these days. I think it’ll grow on me. I whipped up this little comparison image so …
