I left Apple Notes for Google Keep, and Came Crawling Back

I left Apple Notes for Google Keep, and Came Crawling Back

When I first looked at Google Keep, I blushed. I was taken aback by the beauty of its design. I felt a little guilty. I mean, Apple Notes worked just fine. It did want I wanted. It didn’t crash and flake out like Evernote. It was a solid partner. But when I looked at Google Keep I just got excited. It was something new, something that could maybe offer me more.

A robot can print this $64,000 house in as few as 8 hours — take a look inside

Building a house by hand can be both time-consuming and expensive. Some homebuilders have chosen to automate part of the construction instead.

MIT engineers have taken a critical first step toward making that vision a reality. By embedding specialized nanoparticles into the leaves of a watercress plant, they induced the plants to give off dim light for nearly four hours. They believe that, with further optimization, such plants will one day be bright enough to illuminate a workspace.

After years of double-digit growth, home solar installations in the United States are poised to fall for the first time this year, according to a report released on Thursday by GTM Research.

WikiLeaks recognised as a ‘media organisation’ by UK tribunal

WikiLeaks recognised as a 'media organisation' by UK tribunal

A British tribunal has recognised Julian Assange’s WikiLeaks as a “media organisation”, a point of contention with the United States, which is seeking to prosecute him and disputes his journalistic credentials. The issue of whether Assange is a journalist and publisher would almost certainly be one of the main battlegrounds in the event of the US seeking his extradition from the UK.
