This, friends, is a dining option for people who hate other people. Earlier this week, Applebee’s announced that they will replace waiters (to a degree) with tablets at the table. These tablets will be used to take orders and pay the bill, plus they’ll feature games that diners can play while they wait. The tablets, which are Intel-backed startup E la Carte Presto tablets, will total over 100,000 pieces of hardware.
Do you or a loved one have an emotional eating problem standing in the way of your weight loss and healthy living attempts? Well, now there’s a bra for that. Microsoft recently reported it has been working on a “smart bra,” equipped with a generic remote access sensing platform (GRASP).
Supertex expanded its product offerings in support of MEMS and other high voltage solutions with the introduction of the HV9150. The HV9150 is a power management IC, a hysteretic controller that is intended to simply and easily provide a non-isolated, regulated high voltage output (6V to 500V) from a battery level input (2.7V to 4.5V).
