White House Reportedly Exploring Wartime Rule To Help Coal, Nuclear  

An anonymous reader quotes a report from Ars Technica: According to reports from Bloomberg and E&E News, the Trump Administration has been exploring another way to help coal and nuclear generators: the Defense Production Act of 1950. The Act was passed under President Truman. Motivated by the Korean War, it allows the president broad authority to boost U.S. industries that are considered a priority for national security. On Thursday, E&E News cited sources that said "an interagency proce

Intel Is Giving Up On Its Smart Glasses  

Intel is planning to shut down the New Devices Group (NDG), and cease development on the Vaunt smart glasses project that was revealed earlier this year. The glasses are unique in that they use retinal projection to put a display in your eyeball. "There is no camera to creep people out, no button to push, no gesture area to swipe, no glowing LCD screen, no weird arm floating in front of the lens, no speaker, and no microphone," reports The Verge.

An anonymous reader quotes a report from The Daily Beast: Companies across the nation are now using some rudimentary artificial intelligence, or AI, systems to screen out applicants before interviews commence and for the interviews themselves.

Better sleep will change your life, and either one of these ridiculously comfortable pillows will do the trick  

People can be funny sometimes. They’re willing to dump $5, $10, even $20 or more on coffee and energy drinks in a single day to help keep them awake, but they refuse to spend $30 or $40 on a pillow they’ll use every single night for years. How do these two things relate, you might ask? A better pillow results in better sleep, and better sleep leaves you more energized all day long.

Could We Fund a Universal Basic Income with Universal Basic Assets?  

Universal Basic Incomes aren't really the issue, argues Fast Company staff writer Ben Schiller. "It's how you find $2 trillion to pay for it." One answer may come in the form of "universal basic assets" (UBA). UBA can mean a fund of publicly-owned infrastructure or revenue streams -- like Alaska's Permanent Fund which pays residents up to $2,000 a year from state oil taxes. Or, it can mean actual assets that drive down the cost of living, like tuition-free education and free public broadband.

Two tools on Amazon under $20 each that are total game-changers  

Listen, we don’t cover tools very often here on BGR. So when we do, you know you had better pay attention. We’ve been digging through Amazon’s tool box a bit over the past few months and trying out all sorts of different tools the company sells. In doing so, we’ve come across two low-cost items that are absolute game-changers. First is the ORIA 56-in-1 Screwdriver Set, which replaces every screwdriver you have (and every screwdriver you don’t have) with a single set

Government Accidentally Releases Documents On 'Psycho-Electric' Weapons  

schwit1 shares a report from Popular Mechanics: The government has all kinds of secrets, but only a true conspiracy theorist might suspect that "psycho-electric weapons" are one of them. So it's odd that MuckRock, a news organization that specializes in filing Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests with state and federal government bodies, received mysterious documents about mind control, seemingly by accident. Journalist Curtis Waltman was writing to the Washington State Fusion Center (WSFC

Since hiring CEO John Legere in 2012 and debuting its new Uncarrier strategy, T-Mobile has turned into the kind of success story that gets MBA professors hot under the collar. T-Mobile turned its scrappy underdog status into a marketing plug, and by adding the iPhone to its lineup and investing heavily in network infrastructure, the company's product is now on par with AT&T and Verizon. It's not just the network, either -- T-Mobile's aggressive pricing and impressive customer loyalty has dri...

Whenever I hear about a company making a battery phone, my first reaction is to roll my eyes at said device. From my experience, battery phones are good at battery life, and that's pretty much it. But a Chinese smartphone maker that you might not even know created a smartphone with a 13,000 mAh battery that's actually decent. And yes, before you ask, you can use that 13,000 mAh to recharge other electronics. I've been lugging around an external battery with me for years. Wherever I...

It would also be a nightmare for Android device makers, especially the kind of companies that charged about the same for their #NeverSettle smartphones.
