Nikon D810
August 29, 2014
The Nikon D810 ($3,299.95, body only) is a full-frame camera with a high-resolution 36-megapixel image sensor, a tank-like build quality, and loads of features that will satisfy pro photographers and serious amateurs alike. Theimage sensor omits a low-pass filter, which maximizes detail, puttingit in the same class as medium format digital bodies for making large prints, and the 51-point autofocus system locks onto subjects with ease. Its 5fps burst rate is on the slow side for sports and action, but more than adequate for events and reportage. The D810 isn't a revolutionary upgrade to the D800, but it offers a number of improvements and enhancements, making it our Editors' Choice professional D-SLR.

Livermore Team Awarded for Hydrogen Production Research.SD 2813 Industrial gasesPR 2813720 (Hydrogen)
August 29, 2014
  Livermore, California (PRWEB) August 29, 2014           Three Lawrence Livermore researchers have received the Department of Energy's 2014 Hydrogen Production R&D Award for their research in producing hydrogen photoelectrochemically -- by splitting water using sunlight.     Shared with collaborators from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV), the award recognizes the team for its work developing models of photoelectrochemical solar-hydrogen production and corrosion processes.           These models have been crucial in the development of corrosion mitigation strategies for high-efficiency devices based on III-V semiconductor materials, offering a viable pathway to meet DOE's ultimate cost targets in renewable hydrogen production.

Smartphone kill switch mandate raises privacy, civil liberty concerns
August 29, 2014
WASHINGTON _ Megan Boken was chatting with her mom on her new iPhone on August 18, 2012, when a thief shot her dead on the street in St. Louis, Mo. He wanted the 23-year-old's smartphone. A new law signed in California this week is designed to eliminate the incentive for smartphone-related crimes like the one that killed Boken. The law requires all cellphones sold in the state to come with a "kill switch" that allows phones to be remotely disabled, rendering them useless to thieves. Since there's little point in making only smartphones in California comply with the new law, the legislation likely will push the wireless industry to adopt kill switches as a default feature on all phones in the United States and worldwide. Most major smartphone manufacturers and cellular providers in the United States already are moving in that direction, with Apple, Google, Microsoft and others announcing their intention to equip all phones built after July 2015 with anti-theft software, at no cost to consumers.
