Organic catalysts are a breakthrough in the quest for inexpensive and efficient materials for environmentally friendly production of energy in fuel cells. A new study by physicists at Umeå University in Sweden, published in ACS Nano , provides better knowledge about key processes in producing these catalysts.
Dallas, TX — BearCom, a nationwide provider of wireless communications equipment and solutions, today issued a warning to users of two-way radios about the wide-ranging consequences of failing to comply with the narrowbanding mandate from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). BearCom pointed to the latest statistics showing that more than one third of FCC licensees — 36.
In modern telecommunications, light carries digital information over kilometers within seconds. Adapted optical materials con-trol the light signals. In the AFM journal, researchers from Ber-lin, Louvain, and from Karlsruhe Institute of Technology present a method to produce photonic crystals.
from the University of Oklahoma Move over money, a new currency is helping make the world go round. As increasing volumes of data become accessible, transferable and, therefore, actionable, information is the treasure companies want to amass. To protect this wealth, organizations use cryptography, or coded messages, to secure information from "technology robbers.
Mars Curiosity is about to take its first sip of the red planet's sand. But only after NASA's rover plays bartender to make sure the dry dust is shaken, not stirred. The rover's scoop will dig into the sand Saturday. But only after NASA's rover plays bartender to make sure the dry dust is shaken, not stirred.
To believe that technologies once dreamed of in science fiction novels, television shows, and comic strips may one day be a reality, or that real-world technologies might make the fantastic devices of fiction obsolete, you'd need to be either an optimist…or a futurist in the Department of Homeland Security (DHS)'s Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) .
If there's one advantage a print magazine still has over an online publication, it's the ability to offer all manner of crazy freebies glued to its pages. Maybelline samples , CDROMs packing the latest version of WinZip , or -- in tomorrow's edition of Entertainment Weekly -- something that actually looks pretty enticing.
Sierra Wireless introduced the next-generation AirVantage™ M2M Cloud , a faster, more cost-effective way to build, deploy, and manage large M2M applications. The AirVantage M2M Cloud provides secure two-way communication between connected devices and the enterprise, enabling innovation in products, services, and revenue streams.
When a big tech company like Google moves into the neighborhood, it’s often a death warrant for a small tech company. But not for RareWire , a Kansas City, Mo. developer of apps for mobile devices. When the search giant came to town a year ago, it was to build out the fiber-optic backbone for a massive Internet infrastructure–a.

When people put their minds to it, anything is possible. Even a new hand. Last year, a South African named Richard Van As lost four fingers in a woodworking accident. But that was just the start of his troubles. Surgery set him back $20,000--all the money he had--and that didn’t include actually replacing the fingers with prosthetics.
Get ready to rethink the way you brew coffee — and the cost of it. The Blossom One Limited machine makes a fresh, hot cup of coffee, but it’s not your average coffeemaker. A team of engineers who worked previously at Apple and at NASA designed the $11,000 coffeemaker that brews coffee at just the right temperature.
Design trends are influenced by both form and function, but also bow to limitations of existing technology. When we look back at flat-screen TVs compared to LCDs, then further to the bulky cathode ray tube ( remember these ?), it’s obvious we’ve come a long way. Within a few years, according to industry reps, we’ll say the same about store displays, vehicle lighting and kitchen countertops.
Target is gearing up for the holiday season with a mobile-based program designed to foil the practice of “showrooming.” Starting Oct. 14, customers who visit the stores will see a showcase of the top 20 toys of the season each of which will sport a QR code that lets consumers buy them online and have them shipped.
