Although the design of the new Mac mini was familiar, its components have become much more impressive. At least, the product uses a Quad-core Intel eighth generation intended for desktop computers. Provided and optional version with a six-core processor. Maximum amount: of RAM — 64 GB storage — 2 terabytes. Thus, the computational performance has increased (as a maximum) five times, and graphics performance by 60%.
Provides four Thunderbolt 3 port, two USB-A, HDMI, audio and Ethernet (including option to support a speed of 10 gigabits per second).

Edition of Reuters reported that in June, Elon Musk fired "at least seven" important managers Starlink. Among the dismissed employees was the Vice-President of SpaceX satellites Rajiv Badial, designer Marc Krebs and specialists who previously worked at Microsoft.

It is Known that satellites for Internet distribution will be put into orbit in height from 1110 to 1325 km, which is much lower than the height of the flight other similar devices. Given the speed of the Internet will reach 1 Gbps with a latency less than 35 MS. For comparison, satellites in higher altitude is not able to provide latency below 600 MS.the
Tesla is allowed the owners of electric cars to repair their cars.
A Law requiring manufacturers to provide manuals to repair and sell spare parts, enters in an increasing number of U.S. States. First, he was concerned with electronics and other equipment, but in Massachusetts it is also effective against vehicles. Soon the demand spread to other States.
In Order not to violate the requirements imposed by law, the company Tesla has created a special section on the website describing every detail of branded cars. Parts catalog relevant to the whole model line: Model 3, Model S, Model X and Roadster classic. Sketches on the pages to reveal new details about such details as the rear suspension Tesla Model 3.
Publish the Handbook might mean that in the near future to buy car parts, Tesla can not only service centers, but also ordinary owners of electric cars. Most automakers have agreed to provide documentation and spare parts much earlier, so that a failure by Tesla would have looked very strange.the
Robots doing a variety of "human" Affairs (including cooking) is no surprise. But large global pizza chain Pizza Hut and the famous automaker Toyota still want to try to do it.

Itself a "mobile kitchen" is composed of the fridge with pre-prepared products, robotic feed system and Assembly, as well as portable conveyor belt oven that can cook several pizzas at once. Cooked pizza will just have to put in the box.
According to the developers, the automated process of cooking a pizza takes 6-7 minutes. After receiving the order, first the robotic arm opens the fridge, picks up the blank and moves onto a conveyor belt furnace. When cooking is finished, the second robotic arm takes the pizza travels on a cutting Board, cut into 6 slices and put it intobox. Then the driver can pick up a pizza and send it to the client. But Pizza Hut plans to convert the system into Autonomous cars as soon as they'll be widespread.
