And while PowerPoint happens to be our favorite presentation tool, we think presenters who operate in the Apple ecosystem might benefit from checking out Keynote on occasion. You might be wondering why you should bother learning a new system if you’re already comfortable with PowerPoint, especially since it’s such a great...

Courtroom Face-off Ends in a Win for Jaguar Land Rover; China Declares the Landwind X7 a Copycat

A legal battle waged since 2016 ended with a historic win for Jaguar Land Rover on Friday. In 2015, China’s Jiangling Motor Corporation debuted the Landwind X7, a compact crossover that looked a lot like the Range Rover Evoque. Okay, not “a lot” — the near was damn near identical, but priced well below the […] The post Courtroom Face-off Ends in a Win for Jaguar Land Rover; China Declares the Landwind X7 a Copycat appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Drones are the new cost-effective way to monitor the environment

These unmanned aircraft, referred to as drones or UAVs, are easy to control and have become cost-effective in recent years.

A Look at Six Car Design Specialties, Part 1: The Stylist

"Just imagine being able to take a thousand different bits of metal; and if you fit them all together in a certain way, and then if you feed them a little oil and petrol; and if you press a little switch; suddenly those bits of metal will all come to life. And they will purr and hum and roar. They will make the wheels of a motor-car go whizzing round at fantastic speeds…."That quote is from Roald Dahl's book Danny, the Champion of the World, where the young car-nut protagonist recounts his fathe...

Created in collaboration with local architectural firm LLJ Architects, the Tainan Xinhua Fruit and Vegetable Market is a wholesale, open-air market that will not only serve as an important hub for the city’s food supply chain, but will also serve as a new public destination.

IKEA’s making flat-pack DIY chocolate Easter bunnies!

An unusual play for IKEA, the Vårkänsla is an edible Chocolate Bunny right in time for Easter celebrations… but just like most of IKEA’s products, this bunny needs assembly too!

Build your next iOS and Android app with Flutter

Mobile development is full of compromises. When you’re building a new app, you’re often forced into a difficult choice: do you build the same app twice—once for iOS, once for Android—so that you have a high quality experience for both platforms? Or do you create one app from a shared codebase that works across both platforms, but doesn't have the performance or user experience you were hoping for? Flutter offers a third way: enabling high-quality user experiences with excellent performance, alon...

Flume: Hi This Is Flume (Mixtape Visualizer)

For his first release since 2017, electronic artist Flume taps fellow Aussie Jonathan Zawada for a 42+ minute visual for Hi This Is Flume. Though the release is available to stream on all platforms, it’s most powerful when experienced alongside the Zawada-directed video. Complete with lucid digital renderings and eclectic live-action scenes, the cuts accentuate the insanity of Flume’s music—it’s frantic and enveloping, but when the …

Hen Harriers on the verge of extinction due to gamekeepers killing illegally

A new study reveals that hen harriers are being killed at an alarming rate on U.K. grouse moors. Scientists found that gamekeepers are eliminating these birds, which are on the verge of extinction in England because they hunt red grouse. Conservationists have been tagging hen harriers in the U.K. for several years and discovered that 72 percent of the birds involved in studies have come up missing. The researchers believe the majority of these birds were killed illegally. Related: Don’t forget ...

Boxy volumes anchor a beautiful home into a rocky cliffside

When Montreal-based firm YH2 Architecture was tasked with the almost impossible feat of building on an incredibly sloped, rocky landscape, it came up with a solution that goes back to the age of time: building blocks. Using the natural landscape to its advantage, the firm constructed the gorgeous House Dans l’Escarpement out of two concrete “boxes,” one vertical and one horizontal. The ingenious design not only let the project expand vertically but also reduced the footprint of the home on its ...
