https://youtu.be/fwHFwBNjiTc SOG's $60 Sync II "wearable belt buckle" multitool isn't the only multitool/buckle on the market, but it does add a couple very sensible innovations, like a clip-on/clip-off base that lets you use your tool without taking off your belt, and a squared-off form factor (like a pair of folding travel sewing scissors) that adapts the folded tool for the buckle form-factor.

Enlarge (credit: Jeremy Reimer) The Amiga computer was a legend in its time. Back when the Macintosh had only a monochrome 9-inch screen, and the PC managed just four colours and monotone beeps, the Amiga boasted a 32-bit graphical operating system in full colour with stereo-sampled sound and preemptive multitasking. It was like a machine from the future. But the Amiga’s parent company, Commodore, suffered from terminal mismanagement and folded in 1994, just as PCs and Macintoshes were catching up technologically. The platform, like many others before it, seemed to be at an end. So when a brand new Amiga computer arrived at my doorstep in 2017, you can imagine it was quite a surprise. Accordingly, the Amiga X5000 is a curious beast. In some respects, it's more closely related to its predecessors than either modern PCs or Macintoshes. Yet this is a fully current machine capable of taking on modern workloads.

Target is betting big on mattresses in the mail. The big box chain is investing $75 million in bedding delivery startup Casper as it looks to bolster its e-commerce offerings in the face of the tanking brick-and-mortar market, Recode reported Thursday. A source familiar with the deal confirmed that amount. SEE ALSO: The mobile online shopping revolution is definitely comingbut nobody's sure when Casper has sought to upend a $14 billion industry with foam mattresses that are folded into ultra-compact packages for shipping. Before now, it'd raised nearly $70 million in venture capital. Target was reported to be considering a billion-dollar acquisition of Casper earlier this month, but talks seem to have fallen through. The fast-growing startup was last valued at more than $500 million in 2015. Read more... More about Business and Business

Listen, I think suspicion is completely warranted, to be honest,” says Giles Martin, talking about the contingent of Beatles fans who are skeptically waiting, arms folded, to hear his new remix of “Sgt.

There are some variations, of course some Yagis have multiple reflectors, or have a corner reflector arrangement. And some antennas, particularly TV antennas, have the parasitic elements swept back at an angle rather than perpendicular to the boom. Additionally, the elements can be arranged horizontally or vertically, depending on the polarization desired. Phasing To understand the Yagi's design, recall that a plain old dipole antenna in free space has a radiation pattern that is the strongest broadside to the antenna. That results in two big lobes off the front and the back of the antenna, with little signal off the ends. The driven element of a Yagi is just a half-wave dipole, or sometimes a folded dipole to increase the impedance. The parasitic elements shape and direct the beam using constructive and destructive interference. As Dr.

If this photo is genuine, then we've just had one of the clearest views yet of the Samsung Galaxy X , the first 'properly' foldable smartphone to be released. The Galaxy X leaks comes from Dutch tech site TechTastic , which has found a picture of the supposedly-impending device. It takes a lot of cues from the current Samsung Galaxy S8 , but is devoid of sensors on the front. TechTastic posits that this is due to the fact the Galaxy X will have a screen on the back (which becomes the front when folded. Credit: TechTastic This would jive with the patent applications for the fully-foldable phone we've seen - but it's not clear if that's how this phone will work. Are those lugs at the top designed to clip into the bottom? Raising the contrast of the image doesn't highlight anything (and does make it look like there's a watermark in the corner that's not been made clear) but if correct, the whole front of the phone bar the top is a screen.
