Sometimes, I don’t quite know how to start a product review. And unfortunately, today is one of those days. See, the thing is, when I review products – price is an important piece of the equation. Just as it is for any number of decisions you make daily any time you open your wallet. You’re constantly balancing the value prop for a given thing you’re contemplating purchasing.

What’s the difference between USB-C and Thunderbolt 3?

Thunderbolt is the result of Apple and Intel working together to create a high-speed peripheral interface to replace FireWire. Now in its third generation, there’s some confusion among users thanks to the adoption of USB Type-C as its connector of choice. If you’re not sure what the difference is when it comes to USB-C vs Thunderbolt 3, now’s the time to set it all straight. The most important fact to grasp is that there is a difference between a physical connector and the communication standard of the signals running over that cable. The key difference between USB-C and Thunderbolt 3 is that they use different languages to send information from one device to another. USB-C uses the USB 3.1 protocol and, as the name suggests, Thunderbolt 3 uses the Thunderbolt protocol. Any Thunderbolt 3 port will also work as a normal USB-C port. So if you’re wondering if your USB-C device will work, rest assured that, generally, the answer is yes. All Thunderbolt 3 cables also work as plain old USB-C cables, however not all USB-C cables are Thunderbolt 3 enabled! A Thunderbolt 3 device will not work with a cable that only supports the USB protocol. Thunderbolt 3 ports have extra hardware that ...

Star Wipers Makes the Rags That Clean Up All Your Messes

Connecting decision makers to a dynamic network of information, people and ideas, Bloomberg quickly and accurately delivers business and financial information, news and insight around the world. Connecting decision makers to a dynamic network of information, people and ideas, Bloomberg quickly and accurately delivers business and financial information, news and insight around the world. The two-story cutting room at Star Wipers fills with a soft, mechanical hum. About 20 middle-aged women and a handful of men stand at workstations encircled by 6-foot-tall plastic bins full of used clothes and sheets. In the middle, Amity Bounds, one of the last professional American rag cutters, grabs a pink hoodie with a sparkly print across the front that reads justice love justice. Like her co-workers, she stands 6 inches from a tea-saucer-size blade that spins at chest level inside a metal guard with three small gaps. With a butcher’s precision, Bounds slips the hoodie into one of the gaps, cuts off the hood, then slices the garment twice so it lies flat. Next she cuts off the zipper and tosses it into a waste bin. Then she cuts off and tosses the sparkly print. (“It’s abrasive and no good f...

NHS let Dad die in A&E after six hours on a trolley without seeing a doctor

For more than three hours after Donald Driver died, his daughter, Emma, hugged her beloved father and held his hand. ‘I kissed him, I said I loved him and I was so sorry this had happened,’ says Emma, who describes sitting in a side room at Coventry’s University Hospital next to the body of the man she calls her ‘world’ as surreal: ‘I never thought my dad would die that night.’ Nor, indeed, does she believe he should have died, insisting that, were it not for the appalling care — or lack of it — that Donald received from the hospital supposed to be treating him, he would still be alive today. The 84-year-old had been rushed to the A&E department after complaining of crippling stomach pains at 6pm the Sunday before last. Despite his advanced age, dangerously high blood pressure and a medical history that made him vulnerable, Donald was forced to lie on a trolley in a packed corridor for six hours, without so much as an aspirin to ease his pain as he waited to be seen. Donald Driver, 84, had been rushed to A&E after complaining of crippling stomach pains at 6pm the Sunday before last. His daughter Emma, 31, said that when they arr...

Latest Global Ready Mixed Concrete Truck Market Report 2019 to Talk about Historical Development (2014-2018) and Estimated Forecast (2019-2025)

A concrete mixer (often colloquially called a cement mixer) is a device that homogeneously combines cement, aggregate such as sand or gravel, and water to form concrete. A typical concrete mixer uses a revolving drum to mix the components. For smaller volume works, portable concrete mixers are often used so that the concrete can be made at the construction site, giving the workers ample time to use the concrete before it hardens. An alternative to a machine is mixing concrete by hand. This is usually done in a wheelbarrow; however, several companies have recently begun to sell modified tarps for this purpose. Briefly speaking, in the next few years, Concrete Mixer Trucks industry will still be a highly energetic industry. Sales of Concrete Mixer Trucks have brought a lot of opportunities, there will more companies entering this industry, especially in developing countries like Vietnam, Myanmar, etc .

EXCLUSIVE: This Is How the U.S. Military’s Massive Facial Recognition System Works

Over the last 15 years, the United States military has developed a new addition to its arsenal. The weapon is deployed around the world, largely invisible, and grows more powerful by the day. That weapon is a vast database, packed with millions of images of faces, irises, fingerprints, and DNA data — a biometric dragnet of anyone who has come in contact with the U.S. military abroad. The 7.4 million identities in the database range from suspected terrorists in active military zones to allied soldiers training with U.S. forces. “Denying our adversaries anonymity allows us to focus our lethality. It’s like ripping the camouflage netting off the enemy ammunition dump,” wrote Glenn Krizay, director of the Defense Forensics and Biometrics Agency, in notes obtained by OneZero. The Defense Forensics and Biometrics Agency (DFBA) is tasked with overseeing the database, known officially as the Automated Biometric Information System (ABIS). DFBA and its ABIS database have received little scrutiny or press given the central role they play in U.S. military’s intelligence operations. But a newly obtained presentation and notes written by the DFBA’s director, Krizay, reveals how the organizati...

8 Best Travel Coffee Mugs (2019): Insulated, Steel, Thermal

From classics like Yeti and Stanley to new mugs from OtterBox and Snow Peak, I tried a ton of travel tumblers this winter. When the sun struggles to weakly rise above the horizon at 10 a.m. and sets at the stroke of 4 p.m. When every part of your body is either swaddled in wool or chapped and frozen. That, my friends, is when coffee is the only fuel capable of powering you through your day. This winter, I’ve been drinking all my beverages, from coffee to water to the occasional beer, exclusively out of some of the best travel mugs you can buy. Below are my top picks for vacuum-insulated, multi-purpose coffee and beverage mugs. They will all do a stellar job of keeping your joe piping hot (or freezing cold when the weather finally breaks). These are my new favorite everyday vacuum pints. They come in a set of two, and they stack for easy storage in your cupboard. The matte exterior is pleasant to hold, and the clear, sealed lid lets you see how much fluid is in the cup before you pour it all down your shirt front (you can also swap it out for a straw lid or Yeti’s lid with a sliding magnetic closure). It keeps coffee hot for the several hours I need to drink it befor...

Park’s Hydraulic Barb Tool crams a lot of action into one tool. It’s all you’ll need to cut your hydraulic brake lines and cleanly install barbs. Park’s Hydraulic Barb Tool has rapidly become an indispensible part of my tool box because it does it all when it comes to installing disc brakes, quickly and easily. I can cut a hydraulic hose, clamp it solidly in place, and install a barb in seconds. The Hydraulic Barb Tool is so clever and convenient it makes my other hydraulic brake installation tools obsolete. Basics: Hydraulic hose cutting blade; hose clamp; barb pressPros: Everything you need to make clean cuts and barb installs is integrated into one tool Cons: It doesn’t store well in a toolbox due to its awkward shape Park Tool has wisely made the pivotal parts of the Hydraulic Barb Tool replaceable. You can order replacement blades from Park Tool, but you’re likely to get a lot of cuts from the stock blade if you’re only using this tool occasionally in the garage. The ba...
