Mangy_Dog explains in this video that he became intrigued with the notion of creating a modern LED replica of the 1970s-vintage McDonnell Douglas F/A-18 fighter jet’s archaic digital display panels as a part of an aborted project to produce a complete, programmable cockpit. Maybe the producers of the new Top Gun sequel were interested in just a simulator for shooting scenes for that film?

Anyway, Mangy_Dog describes the challenges in producing his impressive retro-themed display and outlines the steps for you to build your own DIY display. In his case, Mangy_Dog is using the display to show the subscriber count for his YouTube channel in celebration of surpassing 1,000 subscribers. Here is his explanation:

Each digit has its own 595 shift register, and solder connections on the side. The idea is

This foldable laptop can be carried around like a clutch for the ultimate tech-fashion statement

Gadgets these days are shrinking in size owing to the technological innovations and design implementations that compliment them. There are foldable phones like Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 and Surface Duo that are radically changing how we perceive our mobile devices to be like. Laptops have also seen this paradigm shift – with young buyers preferring lightweight folding screen products that promise ultra-productivity on the go.

As a refreshing approach to what a laptop could be – designer Heesung Choi from Seoul has come up with the concept idea he calls “Clutop”. A laptop that has a swanky design, since it folds into itself to become a clutch bag for stylish portability. The “normcore” design adaptation means you’ll have a lightweight laptop that matches your fashion quotient. Heesung claims it to be the world’s smallest laptop which is eye-popping in its own rights. Clutop has a screen aspect ratio of

Netflix film dissects a technology-driven ‘social dilemma’ | Nation/World

SAN RAMON, Calif. — A new Netflix documentary is setting out to expose technology’s corrosive effects on society during a pandemic that’s left people more dependent than ever on tools that keep them connected with friends, family and colleagues they can no longer meet in person.

So the timing for the release of “The Social Dilemma” might strike some viewers as odd. But its makers aim to give you a better sense of why the pandemic isn’t the only reason it feels like we’re stuck in a dystopian nightmare.

The film, directed by Jeff Orlowski, aims to explain how Silicon Valley’s embrace of smartphones, attention-grabbing algorithms, polarizing echo chambers and pursuit of profit have left users reeling in a way that could pose an existential threat to U.S. democracy.

“It is a self-destructive code that has been planted in our society right now,” Orlowski said in an interview with The

Pranab Mukherjee stayed away from modern gadgets, late night parties

Former President Pranab Mukherjee with Prime Minister Narendra Modi

About Pranab Mukherjee, Congress leader Jairam Ramesh once told me that he was like Dhrupad Sangeet. If you don’t understand Dhrupad or if your ears are not trained to listen to Dhrupad, then it will be difficult for you to enjoy the music.

The analogy with Dhrupad gives the impression that Mukherjee, senior Congress leader and former President was a dreary person, who stayed a thousand hands away from so-called modern gadgets, modern lifestyle, late night parties and instead remained engrossed in politics and reading — a person from whom people might have heard, when they went to him, about Congress politics before Indira Gandhi.

It also happened, when someone went to his place, that he would narrate details of the first Congress session and explain how, from there, the party got transformed. So many times listening

Why This Course?

Five years ago, Joe Felter, Pete Newell and I realized that few of our students considered careers in the Department of Defense or Intelligence Community. In response we developed the Hacking for Defense class where students could learn about the nation’s emerging threats and security challenges while working with innovators inside the Department of Defense (DoD) and Intelligence Community to solve real national security problems.

“Recipes from a Greek childhood, with modern flourishes”

2019’s MasterChef champion, Irini Tzortzoglou draws on memories of family life and fresh produce in the tiny village of Ano Akria in Crete to share her contemporary take on Greek cuisine in her debut cookbook, Under the Olive Tree (Headline Home, £25).

A former banker, Tzortzoglou – who now lives in Cartmel – charts her rediscovery of the joy of food preparation, and of the hospitality “ingrained in the Greeks” that surrounded her growing up.

The approach

Alongside nostalgia for the Greece of her childhood, Tzortzoglou offers modern, cheffy flourishes (there is a chapter on “fancy gadgets”, like sous vide wands). The opening chapters offer a broad tour of Greek cuisine, from kokkinista (tomato dishes) to pités (pies).

The book is split into two: recipes for “Everyday”, including breakfasts, salads and meat, and for “Entertaining”, including Easter celebrations, Christmas feasting and appetisers, mains and desserts for pull-out-all-the-stops dinner parties –
