SpaceX has made a historic rocket landing

For the first time in SpaceX history, he set up a rocket on a barge. Falcon 9 provided supplies to the International Space Station (ISS). Landing took place on the Atlantic Ocean on Friday afternoon. Congratulations to the company was made by President Barack Obama himself.

Rocket Falcon 9 with Dragon Capsule provided supplies to ISS astronauts with more than three tons of equipment. It will be used to conduct scientific research. When Dragon disconnected from the rocket, she was about to return to Earth and land on the ocean – using special controllers. SpaceX has made such attempts many times in the past. This time the private company was successful.

Landing rockets at sea is a future in human space exploration, because in the event of a failure does not expose the life and health of people. SpaceX is perfecting the return of rockets to Earth because their re-use for future launches saves time and money. According to the plans of SpaceX boss Elona Muska, in a few years the process will become fully efficient and take place once every few weeks. “We will be successful when it gets boring,” Musk joked.

SpaceX congratulations came from President Barack Obama himself. “It’s made by innovators like you and NASA America is the leader in space,” he wrote on Twitter.

Dragon has had ten supply flights. The SpaceX CRS-8 mission yesterday was the first since June 2015, when the ship exploded minutes after the launch.

New Bluetooth Speaker Series from LG IFA 2016

Modern features and sleek design distinguish the latest PH1, PH2, PH3 and PH4 from LG, which were introduced at the IFA 2016 in Berlin.

The PH2 and PH4 from LG Electronics have been created for the user, for which durability and handy shapes are a priority in choosing this type of equipment. Weighing just 270 grams and splash proof, the PH2 speaker is the solution for active lifestyle users looking for high quality audio in a compact device. The second model is a solution for those who like to spend time outdoors with family and friends – the PH4 has more power output so it can be tested in open areas such as barbecues, camping or poolside.

LG designers have fitted both speakers in a strap that will allow them to be easily attached to a variety of surfaces both indoors and outdoors, as both models are rain and splash resistant. The new LG Wireless Speakers feature BassBoost Bass Boost, and their diaphragm emits sound in all directions, giving a strong sound to all listeners on the device side.

The PH4 speaker also features two passive diaphragms that provide significantly higher sound quality and stronger bass than other similar speakers. Batteries are expected to provide 6 (PH2) and 10 hours (PH4) hours of music away from current sources.

Powerful battery, durable enclosure and high quality sound are the key features of a good Bluetooth speaker. However, these devices are not used exclusively outside the home, so design is very important. That’s why the LG PH3 has a sleek, modern design that fits into the interior. The housing of the PH3 is enriched with a built-in light, which easily creates a pleasant mood both in the living room and in the garden party. The candle-like PH3 speaker is available in three color variants and offers five different, multi-color illumination modes. A battery that allows up to 10 hours of operation.

All three of the above speakers are equipped with inputs that allow you to connect non-Bluetooth devices such as older MP3 and CD players. With the new equipment in mind, the speaker uses the advanced Multi Point feature, which allows you to connect wirelessly to …

WhatsApp will not share facebook data?

Although WhatsApp is formally a Facebook application, it has functioned completely independently of it. However, there was a plan to change this state of affairs, and we heard a preview of all Facebook users sharing their data. This allows the application to log in using social networking data, as well as communicate with people in the friends list.

WhatsApp says that such a step is necessary to test new features, including the system for scamming credit card fraud, delayed flight information, and improving the search engine for friends.

Surprisingly, watchdog organizations are protecting the privacy of citizens by implementing this plan. The EPIC (Electronic Privacy Information Center) and the UK’s Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) have been protesting against the release of Facebook user data. In their opinion, such a step would violate the policies of the Federal Trade Commission and local regulations.

The ICO is still investigating the matter, but EPIC has already reported to the Federal Trade Commission, accusing Facebook and WhatsApp of unfair commercial practices. The organization believes that both companies have misled their customers when WhatsApp took over in 2014. Its representatives assured that the company’s policy would not change and would never sell user personal information, including their phone number, name and profile data.
