Which iPhone 12 should you buy?

Not long ago, Apple used to release just two new iPhones per year. That number has now ballooned all the way to four in 2020, making it a little tougher to tell which new iPhone is right for you. Lucky for you, we're here to help. Every new iPhone this year supports 5G,

你眼中的 2015 年化学学术界最大的新闻是什么?

诚邀。详情可以看一下ACS C&EN评选的 Top Research of 20151.可注射型柔性电子电路 Flexible Electronics You Can Inject2. 敏感试剂的特殊包装 Special Delivery For Sensitive Reagents这个我想值得一提,因为对于我这个做有机化学的来说还是颇有意思的。因为很多敏感试剂我们不得不利用手套箱来操作完成。MIT的Buchwald做的,利用特殊的石蜡胶囊来包装试剂,当胶囊充满了化学品之后,可存放在手套箱外面,需要投反应的时候可以投入加热用(石蜡不会干扰反应,且可以过柱子或者过滤除掉)。3.

低压电气和低压电器技术之22——再谈低压断路器

低压开关,我在专栏中已经谈过N次了。断路器也是低压开关的一种。本文来谈谈低压断路器的两个参数:极限短路分断能力和运行短路分断能力。(1)断路器的极限短路分断能力Icu极限短路分断能力Icu是指在规定的条件下(电压、电流、功率因数等等)断路器的分断能力,并且分断后不考虑断路器能否继续承载它的额定电流。Icu这个参数表征了断路器的极限分断能力,同时对断路器来说也是破坏性试验。极限短路分断能力Icu的试验程序是:O-t-CO,即打开-延时-闭合后立即打开。这里的t延迟休息时间一般不小于3分钟。试验线路如果处于O程序,断路器处于分断状态。CO试验时使断路器合闸,然后立即分断。

库克访华救火,苹果的“风格”却可能大打折扣,值么?

今天上午,苹果CEO库克的第八次访华正式开始。上午,库克与滴滴出行CEO柳青一同乘坐滴滴专车来到北京王府井Apple Store,参加一个面对面的“开发者座谈会”。据悉,参与座谈会的公司们,包括滴滴、美图、美团、日日煮、Tap4Fun和今日头条等。讨论自然避不开苹果投资滴滴的合作,库克一开场就表达了对滴滴的赞美,他表示“滴滴拥有 3 亿用户,超过 1400 万的司机,现在,库克也算是滴滴的用户了。救火的库克,为何要先见开发者?库克这次访华的背景并不平静。2016年的苹果颇有流年不利之感,营收利润下滑,在中国区的图书与电影近期又面临着政策限制。

为抢占智能输入法市场,Pinterest欲收购输入法应用开发商Fleksy

在若干自定义输入法应用制造商中,Fleksy这个名字可能会有点儿陌生。但今天他却名声大噪:最火爆的图片社交网站之一 Pinterest 宣布要收购这个低调的输入法。但这并不是一次完全的产品收购。一方面 Fleksy 的 app 在可预见的未来内将继续独立运营,而另一方面,公司一半团队将并入 Pinterest 的产品设计部门。这次收购其实也暗示,尽管目前有很多输入法公司取得了成功,包括被微软以 2.5 亿美元收购的 SwiftKey(霍金是其用户之一),但该领域白热化的市场竞争让企业的生存愈发艰难,特别是连苹果和谷歌这样的巨头也在努力提升产品的输入法功能。

LG Minibeam投影机家族迎来两位新成员

大块头投影机的日子已经一去不回,LG也致力于为市场带来更多的轻便型产品。日前,该公司发布了两款Minibeam产品线新品,分别是超亮的PH450U、以及超便携的PH150G。无论新旧大小,对于投影机来说,亮度一直是人们最在意的参数。至于小型投影仪,这方面一直难以称作完美。不过LG新推出的PH450U,却将输出亮度提升到了450流明。  因为采用了特殊的设计,PH450U能够投射13至80英寸的画面,分辨率为1280×720(HD级别)。你可以将PH450U放在桌子、地板、或者其它平坦的表面上(横向放置)。  对亮度要求不高,但更注重便携性的用户来说,PH150G更加适合。
