MOFT’s genius laptop sleeve transforms into an angled stand using the power of origami!

The Carry Sleeve joins the ranks of MOFT’s products, and offers a solution that doesn’t just attach itself to the base of the laptop, but rather encases it in a stylish, protective layer that holds your laptop along with your EDC and even a couple of business cards too.

The MOFT Carry Sleeve comes with a waterproof, scratch-resistant PU-based leather exterior that houses your laptop in its slim yet durable design.

Built with a magnetic flap that secures the stand in place, the Carry Sleeve can be adjusted to 15° or 25° angles to give you a better computing experience while ensuring your laptop stays cool.

Built with an innovative folding design (a feature we’ve really come to love across all of MOFT’s products), the Carry Sleeve transforms into an angular laptop stand with a simple flip of two tabs.

Coming from the guys that made the world’s lightest, most invisible laptop stand, this is the MOFT Carry Sleeve.

Vitamix vs. Blendtec: Which pro blender will crush your checklist

While cheap blenders max out at chopping fruit and ice, Vitamix and Blendtec offer the speed, blade force, and pre-programmed settings you need to nail the perfect consistency and mouth feel for tricky methods like emulsification, milling, or whipping a creamy butter texture.

Here are some questions to guide your quest to the ultimate at-home blender: As with most head-to-head appliances battles, the Vitamix versus Blendtec debate is more a matter of which is better for the recipes you'll be making most often.

Let's get one thing straight: "Low end" isn't quite accurate because Vitamix and Blendtec don't make a "cheap" blender.

Both have pulse switches and can technically make foods like salsa, hot soups, and ice cream, but the lack of variable speed in the cheapest Blendtec can cause the blades to skip over chunks or oversimplify recipes that specifically recommend starting slow, then gradually increasing speed.

The whimsical name represents Vitamix's Smart System blenders, featuring built-in digital timers and self-detecting containers that allow the machine to read which container you've chosen (like 64 ounces for a big batch or a blending cup for a solo smoothie) and automatically adjust blending settings accordingly.

Celebrate Independence Day with HomeKit accessories, apps, and automations

Source: iMore For those times where you still want to browse around on your phone, you can use a third-party HomeKit app on the Apple TV to view your cameras.

Creating a custom automation in the Home app also enables you to tie it in with other HomeKit accessories, such as door sensors or locks.

Make it your own Source: Christopher Close / iMore If your HomeKit lighting's app doesn't include scenes for Independence Day or if you can't find one that speaks to you, don't worry, you can still make your own magic with automations.

Nowadays, most color lighting accessories and apps include pre-configured scenes that can launch your celebration with just a tap or two.

HomeKit lighting can simulate the pops and flashes of those banging fireworks displays inside of your home through automations and scenes, each of which are incredibly easy to set up.

The joy of sculpting beautiful little towns in Townscaper

You know if you build in the water that a kind of harbour block will appear, with nice red trim and fences for safety around the top, and you know if you build on top of it, a building will appear.

There's no discernible aim to the game other than to make your town look nice.

Every time a building dynamically adapts to what you're doing, there's a delightful tinkling of tiles and a popping noise, and an animation that reminds me of a blob assimilating another blob like slimes do in fantasy games.

I can't possibly put that building right up to the edge of the harbour because how will the people who live there get in?

Maybe it's because I live in a coastal town in real life, I don't know, but I do know that if I don't provide my people with some kind of buttress against the wind then it's going to whip through that town mercilessly.

Why an early exec quit unicorn food delivery startup Deliveroo to launch a food business in the middle of a pandemic

Having launched Deliveroo's Editions business — a network of delivery-only kitchens — in 2017, Warne understood the restaurant market and was well-versed in the capital infrastructure investments needed to build venues like Shelter Hall.

But Dan Warne, a former high-level executive at British unicorn startup Deliveroo, has launched Sessions Market, a series of community-orientated food halls that will try to regenerate the UK's town centers.

Warne says he hopes to bring his experience from Deliveroo, particularly about customer behavior, to the analogue world of food halls.

Dan Warne was managing director of the unicorn startup until 2019, but has now launched Sessions Market as a community food hall concept to rejuvenate UK towns after the pandemic.

At a time when a lot of the hospitality industry is struggling, Warne hopes a venue that provides the necessary digital infrastructure to comply with social distancing measures and allows restaurants to avoid long-term lease arrangement will have a clear appeal.

Redefine Meat is quite literally out to define meat, and the company states that it can create sustainable, high-protein, no-cholesterol steaks thanks to advanced 3D printing technologies.

SEE ALSO: 3D PRINTING WILL CHANGE THE WAY YOU EAT IN 2020 AND BEYOND Eshchar Ben-Shitrit, who founded the company, first known as Jet Eat, back in 2018, stated that this announcement "marks the start of a new are in alternative meat.

The product will be offered as part of a chef's dish and the production of the 3D meat printers and alt-meat formulations will be ramped up after getting feedback from high-level chefs and butchers.

We come very close to how the composition of meat is in nature, and our 3D printer essentially is like a very complicated robot that knows how to take each one of these ingredients and in a very accurate manner… builds a food product."

After the materials go through food engineering in the printer, the machine ejects the product, printing a mix of fat, blood, and meat to give the structure of muscle that is similar to a cow's.

Restaurants face high fees from delivery apps. Uber buying Postmates will make it worse.

And delivery apps such as Uber Eats and Postmates aren't even profitable.

An Uber-Postmates deal would "increase the market power of the food delivery industry over restaurants," said PitchBook mobility analyst Asad Hussain. "

So Shiozawa, who owns and manages in New York City, uses his own small crew to avoid high commissions from the apps, usually around 30 percent or more .

Nobu Shiozawa is determined to get customers his restaurant's homemade tofu and sushi without using delivery apps such as Uber Eats, Grubhub, DoorDash, and Postmates.

Optional Chaining in JavaScript: The Introduction

What the problem is Before, to check if an object's property was undefined, we could do something like this: let nameLength = db.student.name.length Now, the problem is if db, student, or name is undefined it would throw a type error so let's try it another way.

let nameLength; if(db db.student db.student.name) { nameLength = could also use the ternary operator const nameLength = (db ?

operator and if db, student, or name is undefined then it won't throw an error, instead, nameLength will just be undefined.

Short-circuiting in optional chaining Since it evaluates from left to right, if we look at the example below let user = null; let count = // 0 The operator ?

Using square brackets [ ] const optionName = 'optional setting'; const optionLength = the option name is undefined then opitionLength will just be undefined and if it is not undefined it will return the value Function invocation Similar to accessing the property with a square bracket, you can also invoke a function const adminOption = nullish coalescing ??

Acer Swift 5 Laptops Leak With Intel Tiger Lake And Xe Graphics, Launch Date Revealed

We are definitely getting close, though, as earlier this week Intel's Ryan Shrout posted a video of a Tiger Lake laptop running Battlefield V on the chip's Xe graphics.

We have been hearing about Tiger Lake for a long time now, and even Intel has talked about its successor to Ice Lake.

That is the date a pair of Acer Swift 5 laptops with Tiger Lake hardware are slated to launch, according to a couple of product listings at a Dutch retailer.

Go ahead and mark your calendars, just be sure to use a pencil or an erasable pen (and not permanent market), because it looks as though Intel's upcoming Tiger Lake processors will be arriving on July 27.

That is the same architecture that will power Intel's first modern discrete GPUs, and if the benchmark leaks are any indication, it should offer a nice performance bump on the mobile side, compared to Intel's Gen 11 graphics used in Ice Lake.

The Sims 4 records peak high of 10 million monthly active users

That number comes straight from publisher EA, which yesterday announced the title along with all of its post-launch content packs will be heading on Steam.

Despite being nearly six years old, Maxis' popular lifestyle simulator also recorded a peak high of nearly 10 million daily active users over the past quarter.

The Sims 4 is proving that age is but a number after attracting over 2.5 million new players over the past two months.

That news alone is fairly notable, with EA having only recently decided to bring a handful of its titles back to Valve's digital marketplace after years of skipping the platform in favor of its own Origin storefront.

Fantastical 3.1 adds new features specifically designed for working from home

Calendar app Fantastical is getting its first major update since developer Flexibits rebooted the app with a new subscription model back in January, and it’s focused on adding a variety of new features designed for customers who are working from home that make it easier to integrate conference calls and better manage your work / life balance.

The biggest new feature in Fantastical 3.1 is the ability for the app to automatically detect links in calendar invites for conference calls, allowing the app to show a video call icon for those meetings in your calendar views as well as add a simple “Join” button to easily join your call straight from the app.

Zoom, WebEx, Microsoft Teams, Google Meet, Google Hangouts, GoToMeeting, RingCentral Meetings, BlueJeans, and Skype for Business are all supported by the new feature.

There’s also a new option that makes calendar sets — a previous Fantastical feature that would show users specific calendars based on their location (for example, showing your work calendar at work and your home calendar at home) — more useful for a non-commuting lifestyle.

Instead of offering pricier one-time purchases, it shifted over to a new Fantastical Premium subscription, which costs $4.99 a month or $39.99 a year.
