Brussels Terror Attack Second In 15 Months, Terrorist Shot Dead After Explosion At Train Station

International Business Times

EDT- Interior Minister Jan Jambon announced that the Belgian security forces have identified the terrorist. "The terrorist's identity is known. We have been able to identify him," Jambon told RTBF radio television without giving further details, Agence France-Presse reported. A suspected terrorist bomber was shot dead by Belgian troops at Brussels Central Station, Tuesday, after a small explosion took place at the transportation hub at around 8:30 p.m. local time (2:30 p.m. EDT). Officials of the Belgian federal prosecutors confirmed that the central station explosion was being considered as a terrorist attack, Reuters reported.


Farewell to the Apple Car, a dream that was never going to happen

Los Angeles Times

If you've read this far, you probably already know the punchline: Apple is getting out of the car manufacturing business. More precisely, according to Bloomberg, it appears it was never actually in the car manufacturing business. Hundreds of members of Apple's once 1,000-strong car team, dubbed Project Titan, are gone. The program has been redirected at building self-driving programs that can be sold to existing carmakers as an Apple add-on, the way Pullman sleeper cars were sold to railroads more than 100 years ago as a branded luxury enhancement to transcontinental train travel. It's not my purpose to say, "I told you so," although I and many other observers predicted from the outset that the Apple Car was likely to end up exactly where it seems to have landed.

Britain comes a step closer to a 760mph rail link: Four UK routes make shortlist for Elon Musk's Hyperloop One project

Daily Mail - Science & tech

The UK is one step closer to a super-fast transport system after four potential routes have been short-listed fro Elon Musk's Hyperloop One project. The US start-up has disclosed a list of 35 routes in locations around the world vying to put near-supersonic rail transit system to the test. In the UK, four routes have been picked, that could see lines built from London to Edinburgh, Liverpool to Hull, Glasgow to Cardiff or a'Northern Arc' across a series of northern cities. The London-Edinburgh scheme was led by an Edinburgh University team that has plans to take the route via Birmingham and Manchester. If selected, it would mean travelling between the two capital cities would take just 45 minutes, and the journey from London to Manchester would take only 18 minutes.


Eufy RoboVac 11 review: A budget-friendly dust buster

PCWorld

With their budget-busting prices, robot vacuums are a convenience many of us can't afford. That makes the Eufy RobotVac 11 a welcome addition to the brigade. You won't get premium features such as Wi-Fi connectivity, mapping, or camera navigation with this $250 vacuum, but you will get cleaning power comparable to premium models, at a fraction of the cost. Its charcoal finish is adorned with nothing more than an Auto button and the Eufy logo on its tempered-glass top. Its front bumper houses the 11 infrared sensors that help it navigate, and an ample-sized dustbin takes up the bulk of its backside.
