What’s new — Apple just announced AirPods Pro, a $249 premium version of its true wireless

What’s new — Apple just announced AirPods Pro, a $249 premium version of its true wireless earbuds, with active noise cancellation to block out external sound and a “Transparency” mode to hear your surroundings. The new Pro model is available for pre-order starting today and will hit the shelves Wednesday, Oct. 30. Why you might want them — The buds have ear tips that could fit deeper inside your ears and an improved “high-excursion low-distortion speaker driver” for better bass. Apple also says AirPods Pro sound better for calls thanks to a mesh cover that reduces wind noise. Input is a new kind of tech publication launching in the fall.

What to know about the simultaneous AC- and DC-coupling of a solar PV system | Solar Builder What to know about the simultaneous AC- and DC-coupling of a solar PV system

Traditionally, DC-coupled systems were used mainly in small domestic and off-grid applications. Systems using a charger controller to control the power into the chemical storage, or battery bank, were also not typically used commercially. The DC input voltage into the charger controller was close to the nominal battery voltage in the PWM types, and in the case of the MPPT types, the voltages were well above the nominal battery voltage, typically 80-150VDC in the most common type, and in the region of 600VDC in the more commercial units. In all cases of DC-coupling, the PV power was delivered directly to the battery bank. Commercially, and for utility-scale projects, the PV power was installed at much higher DC voltages (ranging from 300 VDC, and up 1500 VDC). These devices were essentially a source of AC current that went under the heading of grid-tied inverters. They operated without battery banks and delivered the PV power into AC current, injected into an existing AC source. This AC-source was in most cases the gird. The high DC voltages were applied to string and central inverters. Micro inverters are also in this group – where individual PV panel voltages or pairs of panels...

Google Coral development board arrives at Adafruit for $175

After first being unveiled earlier this year during March 2019 Adafruit has announced the availability of the new Google Coral development board, making it available from their online store priced at $175. The Google Coral is a single board computer designed to perform fast machine learning (ML) inferencing in a small form factor. Connection on the mini PC include USB 2.0, 3.0 ports, DSI display interface, CSI-2 camera interface, Ethernet port, speaker terminals, and a 40-pin I/O header. Adafruit explains that the Google Coral SoM provides “a fully-integrated system, including NXP’s iMX8M system-on-chip (SoC), eMMC memory, LPDDR4 RAM, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth, but its unique power comes from Google’s Edge TPU coprocessor. The Edge TPU is a small ASIC designed by Google that provides high performance ML inferencing with a low power cost. For example, it can execute state-of-the-art mobile vision models such as MobileNet v2 at 400 FPS, in a power efficient manner.” – Edge TPU System-on-Module (SoM) – NXP i.MX 8M SoC (Quad-core Cortex-A53, plus Cortex-M4F) – Google Edge TPU ML accelerator coprocessor – Cryptographic coprocessor – Wi-Fi 2×2 MIMO (802.11b/g/n/ac 2.4/5GHz) – Bluetooth 4....

China’s industrial profits fall 5.3% in Sept as trade war toll mounts

BEIJING (Reuters) – Profits at China’s industrial firms contracted for the second straight month in September as producer prices continued their slide, highlighting the toll a slowing economy and protracted U.S. trade war are having taken on corporate balance sheets. Industrial profits fell 5.3% in September from a year earlier to 575.6 billion yuan ($81.48 billion), data released by the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) on Sunday showed. That compared with a 2% decline in August. China’s vast industrial sector has come under pressure amid trade tensions and tit-for-tat tariffs with the United States. Profits have slowed visibly since the second half of last year, though the sector has seen some transitory rebounds as Beijing steps up support measures. The decline in profits contrasted with the slight improvement in the manufacturing sector in September, with factory surveys and better-than-expected industrial production growth pointing to a pick-up in domestic demand. But factory gate prices, considered a key barometer of corporate profitability, fell at the steepest clip in more than three years as economic growth ground to a fresh near 30-year low in the third quarte...

Registered in England and Wales. Number 8860726. Consider a hydraulic fitting with a Buna-N O-ring that has been stored in a parts bin for who knows how long—probably years. As is often the case, it’s no longer sealed in its original plastic bag. Now, what if that storage bin is in an outdoor tool shed in Florida, where the average humidity in July can reach 80%? Under the proper conditions a Buna-N O-ring has a shelf life of 15 years—again, under proper conditions. One of those conditions is the humidity must be less than 75%. You can pretty much bet the fitting in question has been exposed to frequent humidity. Pull it out of the bin, put it into service, and you may be asking for trouble—leaks, damage to equipment, or worse. Not all O-rings are created equal. Too often they are just an afterthought, even though they are essential components that the system depends on. A lot rides on each O-ring you purchase and put into service. If even one fails, an entire system may have to be shut down,...

Redmi Note 8 Pro First Impressions: A Bold Step Forward by Xiaomi

The Redmi Note lineup is Xiaomi’s most successful product lineup with over a 100 million devices sold globally. This series has a reputation of being one of the best value-for-money purchases over the years, and it did so by redefining the expectations of consumers. Redmi Note has contributed to the declining market share of several OEMs in the Indian market over the years, and of late, it has forced the survivors to seriously up their game. While competitors always hoped that Xiaomi would slip up and make a mistake, the company has avoided overly risky maneuvers, delivering a safe and solid option in every generation. But with the new Redmi Note 8 Pro, Xiaomi has taken a bold decision to overlook the trusty safe haven of Qualcomm Snapdragon and instead place the fate of its most important device of 2019 in the hands of MediaTek. On the way, the company is also bestowing upon the device a new design, a new camera setup with a new primary sensor, and a few other notable improvements. How does the package that is the Redmi Note 8 Pro work out? Read along as we explore the Redmi Note 8 Pro in our first impressions!
