Beating battery drain: Power-conserving chip may increase smartphone battery life
Stream video on your smartphone, or use its GPS for an hour or two, and you'll probably see the battery drain significantly. As data rates climb and smartphones adopt more power-hungry features, battery life ...
Computer scientists can predict the price of Bitcoin
Scientists have crunched data to predict crime, hospital visits, and government uprisings—so why not the price of Bitcoin?
Measuring on ice: Researchers create 'smart' ice skating blade
An ice skating blade that informs figure skaters of the stresses they are imposing on their joints has been developed by a group of researchers in the US.
