Best Telescopes for Beginners (Easy to Use) — 2019 Guide

*Editor’s Note: While you’re looking for telescopes and other space gifts, check out our picks for the Best Space Gifts and Best Kids’ Space Gifts and Toys for more ideas. See our full Best Telescopes Guide, too* Do you want painless, quick access to the universe? Our editors suggest these nimble telescopes. One is “digital”; the other is “analog.” Take your pick: Celestron recently found a very clever way to give you much more telescope for your money. But you need to be comfortable with digital devices. Most “Go-To” scopes have microprocessors on board with many lines of dedicated software code and special-purpose keypads cabled to the mount. The Celestron Astro Fi telescopes do away with all that stuff, because you already own it! Your Apple or Android smartphone or tablet makes a perfectly excellent telescope controller. All you need to do is download Celestron’s free SkyPortal app from the Apple App Store or Google Play, and then pair the app with the telescope via Wi-Fi. You won’t need access to a network; your new Astro Fi scope is itself a network. The instrument will work even where your cellular networks...

Global Hot Forging Press Industry Report: Overview with Product Scope, Opportunities Risk, Market Driving Force

Forging is the operation where the metal is heated and then a force is applied to manipulates the metals in such a way that the required final shape is obtained. Forging is generally a hot working process though cold forging is used sometimes. There are only few major producers of hot forging presses in the world. And the major producer located in the Europe and Japan, such as SMS, Sumitomo, TMP, Schuler and Fagor Arrasate. These five companies occupied 46.71% revenue market share in 2016. Europe was the largest consumption region, occupied 24.01% market share in 2016, because economy development rapidly. In the next few years, this industry will keep 4.45% annual growth rate, and the production will reach to 394 units in 2022. Despite the presence of competition problems, the global recovery trend is clear, hot forging presses retains its advantage in fastener and shaped pieces produce, investors are still optimistic about this area; the future will still have more new investment enter the field. Although sales of hot forging presses brought a lot of opportunity, the study group recommends the new entrants just having money but without technical advantage and downstream support...

Phil Hutchinson | element14 community The 3D printing process offers electronic engineers a great way to speed up innovation. Early adopters such as the aerospace and defense industries have long used 3D printing for rapid concept modeling, component prototyping and the production of end products, without the constant retooling of manufacturing lines. Though the technology has been around for nearly three decades, recent advances have made 3D printers a much more attractive investment. Three-D printers are now more affordable than ever, and some entry-level printers cost below $200. Options have multiplied as the number of 3D printer manufacturers nearly tripled between 2014 to 2018 to about 120 today. In addition, the quality and speed of print have improved, and a wide variety of 3D-printable materials are available. We are also beginning to see the emergence of 3D-printed circuitry. According to an Ernst and Young study, the printing of electronics could lower prototyping time by 63%. A Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) 3D printer, the F120 from Stratasys, makes it easy for small to medium size design firms to afford technology that’s reliable, repeatable, and industrial grade...

Microsoft has released a patch for an elevation-of-privileges vulnerability rated important, which is being exploited in the wild. The bug fix is part of Microsoft’s May Patch Tuesday Security Bulletin. It’s tied to the Windows Error Reporting feature and is being abused by attackers who have gained local access to affected PCs. They are able to trigger arbitrary code-execution in kernel mode — resulting in a complete system compromise. “They would need to first gain access to run code on a target system, but malware often uses elevations like this one to go from ‘user’ to ‘admin’ code execution,” wrote Dustin Ch...

If you aren’t sure what’s the purpose of these products, here are some clarifications before you get into the list. A rice cooker (or steamer) has a heat source, cooking bowl, and thermostat. It boils or steams rice, and is great for people who feel that they have trouble cooking rice perfectly on their stovetop. A pressure cooker boils the liquid inside (such as water, broth, etc.) and uses that steam to cook whatever food you wish to cook inside. It allows you to cook in bulk in about half the time it would normally take. A slow cooker simmers, cooking food at a much lower temperature than other methods such as baking, frying, and boiling. Instant pot is actually a brand of kitchen appliances. They combined the jobs of all the appliances list...
