After relying on a pacemaker for 20 years, Carol Kasyjanski has become the first American recipient of a wireless pacemaker that allows her doctor to monitor her health from afar -- over the Internet. When Kasyjanski heads to St. Francis Hospital in Roslyn, New York, for a routine check-up, about 90 percent of the work has already been done because her doctor logged into his computer and learned most of what he needed to know about his patient.
Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice….well, you know the rest. When Raser Technologies claimed their re-jiggered Electric Hummer got 100 miles per gallon, I thought they fudged a few numbers. But for GM to claim 230 MPG for the Volt…well, that’s taking a trip to fantasyland, with magical goblins and unicorns.
Cars and light trucks sold in July got more miles per gallon than those sold in previous months, say researchers, who credit the Cash for Clunkers program. The average mileage for new vehicles rose from 21.4 miles per gallon in June to 22.1 mpg in July. That may not sound like much, but it's
Designed for testing any type of printed circuit board, the S280 horizontal flying probe test system from Seica SpA is equipped with eight independent mobile probes, four probes on each board side. The probe can carry all eight probes on the same pad (four on each side). An X-Y-Z retry can be implemented to immediately verify any fault
With 16-bit resolution, the MUP400 signal conditioner from Novotechnik features accuracy of ±0.01 of range +1 digit. The signal conditioner has a high sample rate of up to 5 kHz. Users can select either 0 V to 10 V or 4 mA to 20 mA outputs by setting a DIP switch. Other features include
It might not be long until there is a gene scanner in every doctor's office, as DNA sequencing becomes faster and cheaper. A Stanford University professor reported Monday that he has sequenced his entire genome in a few weeks for under $50,000 using a single machine. Six years ago, hundreds of researchers at the Human Genome Project completed the same task for $300 million. It took 13 years.
Failing to find a larger company to acquire it, Nambu Network will shut down its link shortening service. Tr.im has thousands of users and creates tens of thousands of URLs per day for social media users.
Rupert Murdoch's mad as hell, and he's not going to take it anymore. High-handed treatment from Amazon, that is. On News Corp.'s (NWS) fiscal-year-end earnings call with analysts, the notoriously shoot-from-the-hip mogul suggested that The Wall Street Journal will cease to be available on the Kindle e-reader unless Amazon starts offering a more generous revenue split and more publisher-friendly policies.
Texas Instruments Incorporated introduced an LVDS serializer that connects directly to 1.8-V powered processors. Using the company’s FlatLink technology, the SN75LVDS83B eliminates the need for a level shifter when using 1.8-V and 2.5-V logic interfaces
Designed to protect USB ports from surges and spikes, the , AL-ECF504-AB panel-mount USB surge protector from L-com clamps the power lines to safe levels from USB connected devices including USB hubs, WiFi USB client adapters, and USB enabled surveillance cameras.
National Semiconductor Offers a nanopower op amp that offers a low power consumption of 552 nW, with operation down to 1.6 V. The PowerWise LPV521 is appropriate for portable equipment and low power applications including wireless remote sensors, power-line monitoring, and micropower oxygen and gas sensors. It features a
With a matte-black case for increased contrast, the TopLED Black Series of LEDs from OSRAM can achieve a typical luminous intensity of 1.9 cd (at 20 mA).
When launched to great fanfare nearly a year ago, some feared the Large Hadron Collider would create a black hole that would suck in the world. It turns out the Hadron may be the black hole. The world's largest scientific machine has cost $10 billion, has worked only nine days and has yet to smash an atom.
French advertising company Publicis Groupe SA has agreed to buy Microsoft Corp.'s digital advertising firm Razorfish in a move to boost its share of advertising on the Web, according to a joint statement released Sunday.
