Some of the best calorie-counter apps now available across various platforms largely contribute to the dwindling rate at which people consult dieticians. With calorie counter apps, tracking your daily caloric intake from the food and drinks you consume would not be easier. While some are paid apps (mostly the best calorie counter apps) but still offer free packages with limited offers, others are totally free to use but come with ads. Here is a list of the best calorie counter apps of 2019, available on iOS and Android devices. ...
A definite behavior of the “fourth fundamental state of matter,” known as plasma has eluded scientists since first discovered in the 1920s by chemist Irving Langmuir. And as a major constituent of nuclear fusion, this lack of knowledge has ridiculed efforts to generate energy through a safer, clean and efficient means of nuclear reaction – atoms binding. Studying it in our labs has always been like trying to see an electron. But there’s a new lead. A group of researchers from Ireland and France has announced studying the behavior of ...
The concept of modularity for business computers became so brilliant in 2016 when most computer manufacturers capitalized on the idea to woo consumers. Lenovo (and Motorola), Acer, and HP all became modular computer vendors, including Microsoft which hurriedly acquired a patent for “modular computing device” the same year. But, how is the market now? Intel thinks it now has a better idea. The giant chipmaker has introduced a new device called the “NUC Compute Element” – a direct replacement for the Compute Card it bailed out from ear...
To console angry customers complaining about the faulty butterfly mechanism in their MacBook keyboards, the Apple keyboard replacement program has been extended by the company. The list of makes and models eligible for free keyboard repairs has also been extended.  Apple announced on Monday that will replace all ‘butterfly keyboards’ for free and that it has extended its keyboard replacement program. This has come as a result of many customers complaining about the sticky keyboards with letters either duplicating or not typing at all...
Astronauts have to juggle many chores together in space, but thankfully, NASA has sent something to help them out – an Astrobee. Astrobee is NASA’s free-flying robotic system that helps astronauts with routine tasks like taking inventory, documenting experiments with their built-in camera, and working together with astronauts to move cargo. They can work autonomously or via remote control by astronauts, flight controllers, and researchers on the ground. The NASA Astrobee can also carry out experiments in microgravity and play a...
We know that Microsoft and Sony are rivals when it comes to console games. But in the growing scope of cloud games where gamers can stream games on the internet, these two opposite teams have joined forces to create cloud-based games. Under this partnership, the two companies will jointly develop cloud-based solutions that will benefit their respective gaming and content services – xCloud and PlayStation Now. In their press release, the two companies said that with this collaboration, the companies aim to deliver more enhanced ente...
About 20 percent of children suffer from “internalizing disorders” commonly referred to as anxiety and depression. And adults are tasked with recognizing potential mental health problems in children by inferring to their mental state because it’s difficult for children under the age of eight to articulate their emotional suffering. But the process is always difficult and most times result in late treatments. By using the speech patterns of children, a newly developed Artificial Intelligence (AI) algorithm can detect signs of internali...

“The human body itself is a large computer. Its metabolism has drawn on the computing power of trillions of cells since time immemorial,” said Martin Fussenegger – lead researcher of the team which built the world’s first dual-core bio-computer using gene-editing tool called CRISPR. CRISPR stands for regularly inter-spaced short palindromic repeats. Synthetic biology has long tried to control gene expressions using technologies similar to what we see in the digital world. The circuits used in computers depend on a single input in the...
