This tiny affordable Chinese PC could change the future of Android AND Windows

10moons mini pc 470 75 This tiny affordable Chinese PC could change the future of Android AND Windows

A little-known Chinese company called 10moons (whose logo, by the way, bears a close resemblance to Lenovo’s) has launched a tiny computer that could well be the precursor to a new generation of dual-booting, affordable computers.

The D9i appears to be carrying both Windows 8.1 and Android 4.2, allowing you to choose between the two operating systems. A previous attempt by Asus to get the two OSes on one device was canned after Google apparently vetoed the release of the Transformer Book Duet TD300 Hybrid.

This time around is slightly different as Intel may be behind the move (there’s a big Intel inside logo prominently displayed), meaning chipzilla wins regardless of whether the OS is Android or Windows. Plus for the time being, this RMB499 (about £52/US$ 81/AU$ 93) device is only on sale in China.

 New leak gives another look at what Lollipop will look like on your HTC One (M8)

There have been a lot of great Android phones released this year but we still have a soft spot in our hearts for the HTC One (M8), which really saw HTC make some excellent refinements and improvements to its already outstanding hardware design. And the good news is that the One (M8) will soon get a whole lot better with the addition of Android 5.0 Lollipop, which is one of the best new releases of Android we’ve seen yet.

Multiple Manufacturers Pushing Hydrogen Fuel Cells, But Can They Catch Tesla?

After years of working on prototype vehicles, multiple car companies have announced a major push for hydrogen fuel cell automobiles. At the LA Auto Show last week, Toyota showed off its Mirai, a four-door passenger sedan with a $ 57,500 base sticker price and a hydrogen-only fuel system. Honda recently delayed its hydrogen-powered FCX Clarity Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle until 2016, while Hyundai is planning to build 1000 fuel-cell powered Tucson’s by the end of the year.

Currently, most proposed hydrogen fuel cell vehicles are actually combined hydrogen-electric designs. Hydrogen gas, under enormous pressure, is used to drive a generator, which then charged a lithium-ion battery. Toyota plans to sell up to 3,000 Mirai a year by 2017, which would put it well below Tesla’s own sales projections for its Model S — but at a lower overall price point.

Industry Voice: Build a culture of inclusion and recruit with the gender balance in mind

CityofLondon Cloud 6147 470 75 Industry Voice: Build a culture of inclusion and recruit with the gender balance in mind

The first step in eliminating the gender imbalance is to acknowledge it. As a woman who’s previously held management roles in the financial industry and currently holds a management role in the technology industry, I can attest that the companies furthest along in eliminating the gender imbalance are the ones that have identified it and are actively making changes.

It’s widely recognized that the technology industry has a tendency to favor men. There are multiple factors that contribute to this: the 24/7 work environment that’s not flexible for women with children; fields like engineering and computer science being dominated by men; and a cultural stereotype that has some similarities to that of a frat house. More importantly, there may be a risk of a general lack of attention within startups to the issue.

But change is occurring. In my view, culture and the recruitment process are two ways in which startups can raise awareness of the gender imbalance from the beginning and actively work to address it.

OS X Yosemite Users Experiencing Issues With YouTube Videos in Safari [Updated]

The latest update to OS X Yosemite, 10.10.1, appears to be causing some users to be unable to play YouTube videos in Safari. According to threads on the Apple Support forums and Google’s Product forums, some users that attempt to play YouTube videos are seeing only black screens with audio clipping or are experiencing problems loading videos.

Other users are able to play videos, but are seeing a brief error message before a video begins to play, and still other users are getting complete browser crashes when attempting to watch a video. For some users, the problems just started a few hours ago, suggesting the issue may be on YouTube’s end.
